    Uncertain. Confused. Overwhelmed. Many Christians feel bombarded by the messages they hear and the trends they see in our rapidly changing world. How can we resist being conformed to the pattern of this world? What will faithfulness to Christ look like in these tumultuous times? How can we be true to the gospel in a world where myths and false visions of the world so often prevail? In This is Our Time, Trevin Wax provides snapshots of 21st-century American life in order to help Christians understand the times. By analyzing our common beliefs and practices (smartphone habits, entertainment intake, our view of shopping, sex, marriage, politics, and life’s purpose), Trevin helps us see through the myths of society to the hope of the gospel. As faithful witnesses to Christ, Trevin writes, we must identify the longing behind society’s most cherished myths (what is good, true, beautiful), expose the lie at the heart of these myths (what is false and damaging), and show how the gospel tells a better story – one that exposes the lie but satisfies the deeper longing.

    In many ways society teaches us to try to have everything under our control. If we are honest, we tend to think that this can be true even of our spiritual lives. But Mark Yaconelli eloquently expresses the reality of our situation: "We are small, sensitive creatures with short lifespans, in a world that is often chaotic, capricious, mysterious, terrible and wonderful all at the same time. Failure, disappointment, loss and other difficult experiences call us to accept our humanity, feel grateful for what has been given, receive the care of others and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit." Using extraordinary stories from his own life and the lives of others, Yaconelli offers a narrative journey through ways in which disappointments have turned into gifts. In these pages are a wealth of spiritual practices that will carry us deeper into the grace we find in unexpected places.

    The Curious Christian

    How Discovering Wonder Enriches Every Part of Life

    Curiosity is such a childish word, right? Not so fast. Just because we grow up doesn’t mean we should lose our wonder at the world, or the people around us. When we do, we lose so much because curious is how God made us to be. Without curiosity a Christian’s life is incomplete. His relationship with God is incomplete. His connections to others are incomplete. He doesn’t know how to interact with the world around him—politics, media, art, entertainment, science, and so much more simply fly past or overwhelm him. Without curiosity he can never discover deep things, deep connections God tucked below the banal surface of life. Author Barnabas Piper explores what curiosity is, and how it affects relationships. What if people so sought to learn about each other that the most unlikely people became advocates and friends? It would be transformative, and it would stem from curiosity.

    The Life and Ministry of God the Son--Collected Insights from A. W. Tozer

    Author: A.W. Tozer

    Reflections on Christ, from a beloved spiritual writer A. W. Tozer was a man of remarkable knowledge, an avid reader of Christians and philosophers from throughout the ages. But he meditated on the Bible, making him—like John Wesley—“a man of one Book and a student of many.” Combine this knowledge with his acclaimed writing style and you have works like this one, high thoughts of God brought low—yet no less moving—for the common reader.  Jesus: The Life and Ministry of God the Son features selections from Tozer’s writings on the God-man, Jesus Christ. It follows the chronology of Christ's earthly life and explores classic themes of Christology, helping readers better comprehend and appreciate Jesus’ person and work. When you set out to study Christ, you want to behold His splendor the best you can. That’s why writers like A. W. Tozer are excellent guides: they love the Lord, know Him well, and have enough accumen with the written word to lay the weight of glory on your heart like few can. Read Jesus and appreciate anew the Savior of the world and the power of the written word to glorify His name.

    We’re all searching for contentment. Whether it's in relationships, families, jobs, finances, or something else entirely, we all want to be happy and fulfilled. And yet, all too often we find ourselves disappointed with what God has given us. But the apostle Paul says that he learned the “secret” of being content in any and every situation. Is this level of contentment possible for believers today? In this immensely practical book, Erik Raymond teaches us what contentment is (the inward gracious spirit that joyfully rests in God's providence) and how we can learn it through the same Holy Spirit who was in Paul. Wisely and winsomely, this book helps us discover the key to contentment, encouraging us to trust in God rather than our circumstances—no matter what life brings our way.

    God does not keep secrets. Yet, when it comes to God’s will, we live in fear that He is holding out on us some how. But the Bible clearly reveals God’s will for your life. You only need to listen. When it comes to the subject of God’s will, author and pastor James MacDonald finds rampant misunderstandings among Christians: •           "Can I ever be sure about what God wants me to do?"•           "What if I discover I’ve been doing something other than His will?"•           "If I somehow stepped out of God’s will at some point, can I ever get back on track, or is my case hopeless?" If these are questions you never think about, then you are living in willful ignorance. And if you want to stay that way, don’t read this book!
