    Richard Sibbes is widely considered to be one of the fathers of Puritanism in the seventeenth century. His passionate sermons and devotional works have persisted throughout the centuries and continue to influence modern-day scholars and people all over the world. Taken from Matthew 12:20, Sibbes explains what it means to be a "bruised reed." It is a metaphor which exemplifies the way in which God humbles sinners by allowing them to see sin in the way that he sees it-the lesson being that God sometimes wounds before healing, but with the ultimate goal of deepening our love for Christ. Sibbes believed very strongly that "God's love rests on Christ," and often spoke of the comfort to be gained by acknowledging this. He preached that the same can be had for those who live in Christ and seek redemption for their sins.

    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.

  4. The Benedict Option

    The Benedict Option

    A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation

    Author: Rod Dreher
    Narrator: Adam Verner
    Runtime: 8.4 Hrs. - Unabridged
    Regular Price: $19.95 Member Price: $15.96 (or 4 credits)

    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.

    John Bunyan admitted he was one of the worst sinners to have ever lived. But after converting to Christianity, he was constantly amazed by the fact that God saved him from his wrongdoings. As a minister of the gospel, he loved to proclaim the grace of God to sinners, and he earnestly persuaded them to embrace the Lord Jesus Christ. Published in 1688, the year of his death, The Jerusalem Sinner Saved brings together the fruit of Bunyan's thoughts on the grace of forgiveness. With the warmth of a true evangelist, he beautifully reveals the riches of God's grace and mercy to the greatest of sinners.

    Surprised by Joy

    The Shape of My Early Life

    Author: C. S. Lewis

    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

  7. Institutes of the Christian Religion

    Institutes of the Christian Religion

    Author: John Calvin
    Narrator: Bob Souer

    Regular Price: $29.95 Member Price: $23.96 (or 5 credits)
    Institutes of the Christian Religion is John Calvin’s seminal work on Protestant systematic theology. Highly influential in the Western world and still widely read by theological students today, it was published in Latin in 1536 and in his native French in 1541. The book serves as an introductory textbook on the Protestant faith for those with some previous knowledge of theology and covers a broad range of theological topics from the doctrines of church and sacraments to justification by faith alone and Christian liberty. It vigorously attacks teachings which Calvin considered unorthodox, particularly Roman Catholicism to which Calvin says he had been “strongly devoted” before his conversion to Protestantism. The overarching theme of the book—and Calvin’s greatest theological legacy—is the idea of God’s total sovereignty, particularly in salvation and election. Institutes of the Christian Religion is highly-regarded as a secondary reference for the system of doctrine adopted by the Reformed churches, which is commonly referred to as Calvinism. “One of most important theological works ever written, if, for no other reason, the massive influence it has had on Western thought, history, religion, and culture. But even more than that, you will find in this book a vision of God that is not only glorious and holy, but beautiful, gracious, and full of love.”—Derek Brown, editor of The Journal of Discipleship and Family Ministry

Her fiery, independent spirit is evident as Arnold Dallimore sets the mother of Methodism within her culture and time in England. Though Samuel Wesley figures prominently in his wife's story, as do John, Charles, and the other children, the story remains fixed on Susanna. Excerpts from Susanna Wesley's letters and writings of her husband and children are included.

Weaving a great range of material, the scholar and author Johnson creates an ambitious panoramic overview of the evolution of the Western world since the founding of a little-known "Jesus sect."

Information drawn from extensive and varied sources around the world makes this history as credible as it is reliable. Invaluable understanding of the framework of modern Christianity and its trials and tribulations throughout history has never before been contained in such a captivating work.
