    We know we need to commit daily to Christ all matters of the heart and to wait upon Him. But it is often a painful, lonely process that takes longer than we want it to. In her classic book Passion and Purity, Elisabeth Elliot candidly shares with you her love story with Jim Elliot as evidence that she has been there. Through letters, diary entries, and memories, she shares the temptations, difficulties, victories, and sacrifices of two young people whose commitment to Christ took priority over their love for each other. These revealing personal glimpses, combined with relevant biblical teaching, will remind you that only by putting your human passion and desire through His fire can God purify your love. Passion and Purity includes honest, biblical direction on these important matters of the heart: Loving passionately while remaining sexually pure Whether or not to marry, and who is the right one The man's and woman's role in relationships Putting God's desires ahead of personal desires How far is too far, physically In a culture obsessed with dating, sex, and intimacy, the need for Elliot's freeing message is greater than ever.

  2. The Courage to Be Protestant

    The Courage to Be Protestant

    Truth-Lovers, Marketers, and Emergents in the Postmodern World

    Author: David Wells
    Narrator: Bob Souer

    Regular Price: $19.95 Member Price: $15.96 (or 4 credits)
    It takes no courage to sign up as a Protestant. These words begin this bold work-the culmination of David Wells' long-standing critique of the evangelical landscape. But to live as a true Protestant-that's another matter. This book is a jeremiad against new versions of Evangelicalism-the Marketing and Emergent Churches-and a call to return to the historic faith, one defined by Reformation solas (grace, faith, and scripture alone), and to a reverence for doctrine. Wells argues that historic, classical Evangelicalism is marked by doctrinal seriousness, as opposed to the new movements of the Marketing Church and the Emergent Church. He energetically confronts the Marketing communities and their tendency to try to win parishioners as consumers rather than worshipers, advertising the most palatable environment rather than trusting the truth to be attractive. He takes particular issue with the most popular evangelical movement in recent years-the Emergent Church. Emergents, he says, are postmodern, postconservative, and postfoundational, embracing a less absolute understanding of the authority of scripture than traditionally held. The Courage to be Protestant is a dynamic argument for the courage to be faithful to what biblical Christianity has always stood for, thereby securing hope for the church's future.

    One of the most well-known writings of seventeenth century Puritan minister, Richard Baxter, The Saints’ Everlasting Rest will serve as an inspirational, meditative guide to the afterlife. After many years of working to reform the Church of England, Richard Baxter faced an unexpected, serious illness during which he carried out an intense theological exploration of the afterlife and heaven. The humble approach in his writings reflects his life as a Nonconformist leader in the church. His ponderings on heaven, our ability to understand it, and the nature of it will help you prepare for the unknown and encourage a deeper devotion to God.

  4. The Benedict Option

    The Benedict Option

    A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation

    Author: Rod Dreher

    The light of the Christian faith is flickering out all over the West. American churches are beset by a rapidly secularizing culture, the departure of young people, and watered-down pseudospirituality. Political solutions have failed, as the self-destruction of the Republican Party indicates, and the future of religious freedom has never been in greater doubt. The center is not holding. The West, cut off from its Christian roots, is falling into a new Dark Age. The good news is that there is a blueprint for a time-tested Christian response to this decline. In The Benedict Option, Dreher calls on traditional Christians to learn from the example of St. Benedict of Nursia, a sixth-century monk who turned from the chaos and decadence of the collapsing Roman Empire and found a new way to live out the faith in community. For five difficult centuries, Benedict's monks kept the faith alive through the Dark Ages, and prepared the way for the rebirth of civilization. The Benedict Option shows believers how to build the resilience to face the modern world with the confidence and fervor of the early church. Christians face a time of choosing, with the fate of Christianity in Western civilization hanging in the balance. In this powerful challenge to complacency, Dreher shows why churches who fail to take the Benedict Option aren't going to make it.

    Christian, meet your conscience. What do you do when you disagree with other Christians? How do you determine which convictions are negotiable and which are not? How do you get along with people who have different personal standards? All of these questions have to do with the conscience. Yet there is hardly a more neglected topic among Christians. In this much-needed book, a New Testament scholar and a cross-cultural missionary explore all thirty passages in the New Testament that deal with the conscience, showing how your conscience impacts virtually every aspect of life, ministry, and missions. As you come to see your conscience as a gift from God and learn how to calibrate it under the lordship of Jesus Christ, you will not only experience the freedom of a clear conscience but also discover how to lovingly interact with those who hold different convictions.

    The Shape of My Early Life

    Regular Price: $16.95 Member Price: $13.56 (or 3 credits)
    Regular Price: $16.95 Member Price: $13.56 (or 3 credits)
    In the closest thing we have to an autobiography, C.S. Lewis, an unfailingly honest and perceptive observer of self, here shares the story of his personal spiritual journey. With characteristic candor and insight, he describes how his "search for joy" led him from the conventional Christianity of his childhood to a youthful atheism, and finally back to an assured Christianity compatible with his formidable intellect. Lewis's "surprise" holds continuing interest not only for admirers of his work but for any modern seeker concerned with the compatibility of the rational and the spiritual. "Anyone approaching this book as a study in the psychology of conversion will find the greatest interest in the dual paths-intellectual and intuitive-which converged at last. But the casual reader looking merely for an enjoyable book will equally value many other parts."-Saturday Review

    Your God is too small.We like God small. We prefer a God who is safe, domesticated, who thinks like we think, likes what we like, and whom we can manage, predict, and control. A small God is convenient. Practical. Manageable.The truth: God is big. Bigger than big. Bigger than all the words we use to say big.Ironically, many today seem turned off by the concept of an awesome, terrifyingly great God. We assume that a God you would need to fear is guilty of some kind of fault. For us, thinking of God as so infinitely greater and wiser than we are and who would cause us to tremble in his presence is a leftover relic from an oppressive, archaic view of religion.But what if this small version of God we've created is holding us back from the greatest experience of our lives-from genuine, confident, world-transforming faith?In Not God Enough, J. D. reveals how to discover a God who is big enough to handle your questions, doubts, and fears;is not silent;is worthy of worship;wants to take you from boring to bold in your faith;has a purpose and mission for you on earth; andis pursuing you right now.God is not just a slightly better, slightly smarter version of you. God is infinite and glorious, and an encounter with him won't just change the way you think about your faith. It'll change your entire life.

    For centuries, Christians have been tormented by one question above all: "If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?" Is there justice or wisdom to be won by suffering, or some reward beyond understanding? And what of the suffering of animals, which neither deserve pain nor can be improved by it? Is the quantity and variety of suffering in the world inconsistent with, or evidence against, an omnipotent and perfectly loving God? The greatest Christian thinker of all time sets out to disentangle this knotty issue. With his signature wealth of compassion and insight, C. S. Lewis offers answers to these crucial questions and shares his hope and wisdom to help heal a world hungering for a true understanding of human nature, free will, and the will of the Divine. "The point about reading C. S. Lewis is that he makes you sure, whatever you believe, that religion accepted or rejected means something extremely serious, demanding the entire energy of the mind."-Harper's

    What is meant by the “Great Tribulation?” Will the church endure the tribulation? Is the rapture a tenable belief? H. A. Ironside contrasts the judgment of God with salvation to determine the basis for the events of the future. He introduces biblical prophecy, connects to historical events, and offers an exhaustive biblical survey of the Great Tribulation. Most importantly, Ironside explains that the Great Tribulation differs from God’s wrath or fury. Ultimately God’s judgment and wrath—and the events of the tribulation—are overcome by salvation and love. The End Times should not lead to fear but inspire hope.

    Single people are one of the fastest growing demographics in America. Now more than ever, marriage is being postponed, willingly or unwillingly, for a variety of reasons. Perhaps the greatest temptation in singleness is to assume marriage was designed to meet our needs, fix our weaknesses, solve our problems, organize our lives, and unleash our gifts. But the single years can be a unique, God-given period of unmatched and intentional devotion to Christ and ministry to others, even in the midst of waiting for a spouse. This book will help single people make the most of their not-yet-married life by making much of Jesus as they look ahead to a wise, pure, and godly marriage.

    All Things for Good by Thomas Watson provides the biblical answer to the contemporary question: Why do bad things happen to good people? Thomas Watson, the seventeenth-century minister of St. Stephen's Walbrook, believed he faced two great difficulties in his pastoral ministry. The first was making the unbeliever sad, in the recognition of his need of God's grace. The second was making the believer joyful in response to God's grace. He believed the answer to the second difficulty could be found in Paul's teaching in Romans 8:28-God works all things together for good for his people. First published in 1663 (under the title A Divine Cordial), the year after Watson and some two thousand other ministers were ejected from the Church of England and exposed to hardship and suffering, All Things for Good contains the rich exposition of a man who lived when only faith in God's word could lead him to such confidence. Thomas Watson's exposition is always simple, illuminating, and rich in practical application. He explains that both the best and the worst experiences work for the good of God's people. He carefully analyzes what it means to be someone who "loves God" and is "called according to his purpose."
