From the Azusa Street Revival, which began in 1906, a movement has grown to bring more people to Jesus than any other movement in history. While secularism continues to be on the rise in today's society, many areas of the world still experience church growth, thanks to Pentecostal-Charismatic Christians.

But the Pentecostal-Charismatic church is also plagued with sexual immorality, financial corruption, doctrinal error, personal flakiness, spiritual gullibility, prophetic abuse, and more. In many ways the state of the church today is not too different from how it was long ago in Corinth. To make matters worse, the church hides these acts under the cloak of liberty in the Holy Spirit.

Michael Brown sounds a wake-up call to the church and addresses some of the most glaring problems, from inaccurate prophetic words that obscure true ones to ministries using scripturally armed marketing techniques in order to manipulate believers into giving. Brown shows us why we must clean up house so the church can grow, flourish, and fulfill God's kingdom purposes.

Suicide claims a million lives a year. Each one leaves behind survivors – shattered, grieving, angry, guilty and often despairing.

Al Hsu is one such survivor. On an ordinary Thursday morning, he answered the phone and discovered that his father had taken his own life. For months and even years afterwards, he wrestled with intense emotional and spiritual questions. There were no easy answers. But he drew deeply from the resources of his Christian faith and the God who offers comfort and hope. 

Whether you have lost a loved one to suicide or provide pastoral care to survivors, this book will be an essential companion on your journey.

This revised and expanded edition includes helpful information for churches and a useful study guide.

From the fairy godmother's pumpkin coach to Herr Drosselmeyer's nutcracker, godparents have long been associated with good gifts. But in The Character of Virtue theologian and ethicist Stanley Hauerwas offers his real-life godson something far more precious than toys or trinkets—the gift of hard-won wisdom on life and the process of maturing.

In each of sixteen letters—sent on the occasion of Laurence Wells's baptism and every year thereafter—Hauerwas contemplates a specific virtue and its meaning for a child growing year by year into the Christian faith. Writing on kindness, courage, humility, joy, and more, Hauerwas distills centuries of religious thinking and decades of self-reflection into heartfelt personal epistles that are both timely and timeless.

An introduction by Samuel Wells—Laurence's father and Hauerwas's friend—tells the story behind these letters and offers sage insight into what a godparent is and can be.

FAKER by Nicholas McDonald
Have you ever felt like a faker? Facebook, Twitter and Instagram allow us to paint beautiful pictures of our lives. But many of us feel like fakers. If people really knew who we were, what would they think? Would they still care? What would life look like if we stopped pretending? This book not only explores that question, but provides the thrilling answer found in a short story told 2,000 years ago. This richly illustrated book for teens and older brings the power of this exciting story to bear on our modern lives.

LOST by Jonty Allcock
A son turns his back on home and family to follow his dreams of a new life on his own. An other son stays dutifully at home. But when the dream turns to a nightmare, what will this first son do? And which of the two sons is really the more lost? In this deceptively simple story, Jesus gets to the heart of what it means to be lost to God, and found by him again. And it's a story that's full of surprises. You'll be surprised by the father, surprised by the sons, and surprised by what this story tells us about our own hearts. And then there's the biggest surprise of all... jaw-dropping in fact...

FEARLESS by Jonty Allcock
As a young man, Daniel is kidnapped and taken 500 miles from home, to serve an enemy king in the city of Babylon. Find out what happens when Daniel and his friends are put under pressure to turn their backs on God. Will they stand firm in the face of fire? Will they hold their nerve when the lions are circling? This richly illustrated book for teens and older brings the power of this exciting story to bear on our modern lives.
