Eighty percent of the world’s people—including seventy percent of Americans—are storycentric communicators; that is, they prefer to learn and are most likely to be influenced through stories, pictures, drama, and music rather than through reading and writing. Yet more than ninety percent of Christian workers communicate through a highly literacy-based approach. This disconnect overlooks a primary method of Jesus himself in the preparation of leaders and impedes the effective cultivation of leaders in the growing global church.

Title : Training Missionaries: Principles & Possibilities

 

Author : Evelyn Hibbert & Richard Hibbert

Category : Missions

Format : Softcover

Price: $36.50*

* Price Before Member's Discount

Missionaries must know God, be able to relate well to other people, understand and engage with another culture, and be able to use the Bible in a way that informs all aspects of their lives and ministries. Missionary training must address each of these areas if it is to help Christians to be effective in taking the gospel to the ends of the earth. Effective training has been shown to prevent people from prematurely leaving the field. It also reduces the danger of cross-cultural workers uncritically exporting culturally bound forms of Christianity.
 
This book details four key areas that every missionary training program, whatever its context, must focus on developing. It shows how these can be holistically addressed in a learning community where trainers and trainees engage in cross-cultural ministry together.

Title : Unmasked - Being Authentic About Sexuality

Author : Ben K C Lee

Category : Asian Author

Format : Softcover

Price: $14.00

* Price Before Member's Discount

 
Sexual brokenness is all around us. But when was the last time you had an honest conversation with a trusted friend, family member or your pastor about sexual brokenness?
 
The truth is that we avoid talking about sexual brokenness because it brings us face to face with the parts of ourselves that we are most fearful of and shameful about. So we put on masks when confronted with issues related to our sexuality.
 
We wear masks because authenticity in discussing sexuality and sexual brokenness is unnerving. But masks also prevent healing. And if the topic of sexual brokenness is left unaddressed, it can rob us of wholeness and rob our families of true joy.
 
Talking about sex and sexuality requires authenticity. Authenticity brings freedom, and is a huge part of becoming sexually whole. In this book, Ben KC Lee urges you to take off your mask and break the silence, so that you may experience healing and find freedom.

Title Swindoll's Living Insights NT - 1 & 2 Corinthians

 

Author : Charles Swindoll

Category : NT Commentary

Format : Hardcover

Price: $38.00*

* Price Before Member's Discount

  • Corinth, a diverse, cosmopolitan city sitting at a strategic center of commerce for both Greece and the wider Roman Empire, was known for its decadence and wealth. In his commentary on 1 and 2 Corinthians, Chuck Swindoll explores how Paul took the Corinthian church to task for taking on the character of the city instead of the character of Christ. As Chuck shows, the message of Paul to the Corinthians is greatly needed by the Church today.
     
    The 15-volume Swindoll’s Living Insights New Testament Commentary series draws on Gold Medallion Award–winner Chuck Swindoll’s 50 years of experience studying and preaching God’s Word. His deep insight, signature easygoing style, and humor bring a warmth and practical accessibility not often found in commentaries.
     
    Each volume combines verse-by-verse commentary, charts, maps, photos, key terms, and background articles with practical application. The newly updated volumes now include parallel presentations of the NLT and NASB before each section. This series is a must-have for pastors, teachers, and anyone else who is seeking a deeply practical resource for exploring God’s Word.
