    "Though we often hear about the 'gay problem' today, there is an even deeper problem in the church today-one that we often overlook. The call to follow Christ is a call to costly obedience for all, not just for gay Christians. Far too often, the church has elevated homosexuality above other sins and required a costly obedience from gays that it is unwilling to demand of others. And yet, the answer is not to weaken the demands of obedience. Instead, gay Christians who make the difficult choice to align their lives with the biblical view of sexuality are a gift to the church, reminding all of us that spiritual growth and maturity is costly. There is a price to pay in following Christ and devoting our lives to the call of the gospel, and it is one that we all must pay-gay and straight Christians alike. Through the stories and struggles of gay Christians who are reorienting their lives around the costly obedience required to follow Christ, Mark Yarhouse and Olya Zaporozhets call the church to reorient as well, leaving behind the casual morality that is widespread today to pursue the path of radical discipleship. Unlike any other book on homosexuality and the church, this is a call to examine your life and consider what God is asking you to lay down to take up your cross and follow him."

    Something is not right. The witness of the church in North America is eroding. Many Christians are alarmed by the decline in church attendance and seek a culprit. Too often, we point the finger away from the church, make culture the enemy, and build walls between us and others. But our antagonism and enemy-making are toxins that further eat away at our witness. Is there a better way? Tara Beth Leach could easily be one of those millennials giving up on the church. Instead, she is a pastor who loves the church and is paradoxically hopeful for its future. In an era where the church has lost much of its credibility, Leach casts a radiant vision for Christians to rediscover a robust, attractive witness. We need to name the toxic soil we've grown in, repent for past wrongs, and lean into a better way to become the church that Jesus proclaimed we would be. Leach casts down idolatrous false images of God to recover a winsome picture of a kingdom of abundance and goodness. We can be sustained by practices that will tune our hearts to God's and form us into the radiant communities God intends for us and those around us.

    "It's in the movies we see. It's in the news we hear. It's in the stories we tell. Every man is stirred by the heroic. From boyhood, we search for heroes, starting with our fathers. But somewhere along the way, all our heroes disappoint us. And our attempts to be a hero fair no better, leaving us confused and unsure. Yet the heroic longing never leaves us. We want to be that heroic man, but we do not know how. Jesus does. He is the great Hero of all time. And He calls men to follow Him. As we follow, we will quickly realize that the path is surprising. He will first lead us into a place of fear and trembling. He will lead us into death. It is our initiation as men into the new life of the heroic. But the death will be followed by a stunning resurrection. We will find out our true names before Him and be given a heroic quest for His kingdom. And most importantly, we will discover the secret of true greatness, letting our lives go to serve others. In the end, we become most heroic in the silence of His presence. Here we will feel His love, as he remakes us into His heroic image, uniting us to Himself."

    "Most people never seize their moment because they are paralyzed by their own thinking. This book will teach you to let go of your excuses and never miss your moment again. Have you convinced yourself the abundant life Jesus came to bring is out of reach? Have you developed an 'if only' mentality, waiting for something or someone to turn things around? While you become more and more dependent on your excuses, you watch others get what you want to have, go where you want to go, and experience what you long to feel. It seems it's never your turn to experience the joy that comes from attaining all God has for you. In You Are Next, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez uses the story of Jesus healing the paralytic to powerfully illustrate that your 'tendency for dependency' could be standing in the way of your miracle. He challenges you to do what's necessary to receive it and shows you how to let go of old labels you've allowed to define you; move beyond barriers that limit you; stop seeing yourself as a victim and start seeing your circumstances as subject to the authority and power of Jesus Christ; and let go of the qualifications you think are tacked on to Jesus' command to get up and walk."

For when God calls and we look over our shoulder and answer, "Who, me?" God always emphatically answers, "Yes, you."

    "Award-winning author Maria Morera Johnson follows up her bestselling book My Badass Book of Saints with a unique and daring exploration of the cardinal virtues through the saints and heroines of science fiction, fantasy, and comic books. Johnson will reignite your passion for your faith as she demonstrates the heroic in the sometimes mundane quest for good and reminds us that Catholicism is filled with adventure. What do Wonder Woman and St. Katharine Drexel have in common? How about St. Clare of Assisi and Rey, the ingenue from Star Wars: The Force Awakens? All four women sought justice for the abused. With the same zest for her faith and cheeky wit that readers found so compelling in My Badass Book of Saints and a love for the heroic journey that highlights her career, Johnson now focuses on heroines-improbable pairings of saints and characters from sci-fi, comics, and fantasy-who have influenced her life and deepened her understanding of the Church's cardinal virtues: prudence, temperance, fortitude, and justice. With Johnson's enthusiasm as a guide, you'll be inspired to embrace the virtues anew and find your faith in your favorite stories."
