  • Deconstruction Of Christianity

    $10.97

    A groundbreaking book on the true nature of faith deconstruction

    Alisa and Tim help the reader to deconstruct the deconstructionists and thus to respond to them, both with arguments and with love and sensitivity. This is a timely book! — Carl Trueman, author of The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self

    A movement called ‘deconstruction’ is sweeping through our churches and it is affecting our loved ones. It has disrupted, dismantled, and destroyed the faith of so many, and this book can help you not only understand what’s happening but also stand your ground and respond with clarity and confidence.

    *Maybe you have a loved one who is deconstructing their faith, and you are struggling to know how to respond;

    *Maybe you are trying to understand the radical spiritual makeover your friend or family member is going through;

    *Maybe your relationship with a loved one has been strained or even cut off because of your “toxic” Christian beliefs and you don’t know what to do;

    *Maybe you’re experiencing doubt yourself and facing hard questions about truth, God, the Bible, theology and the gospel.

    Some who leave the faith feel wounded by the church. Others feel repressed by some of the moral imperatives found in Scripture. For some, it leads to a custom-made spirituality. For others, deconstructing their faith leads them away from the truth into agnosticism, atheism, the occult, or humanism.

    In this seminal book, Alisa Childers, author of Another Gospel?, and Tim Barnett, creator of Red Pen Logic, will help you understand what deconstruction is, where it comes from, why it is compelling to some, and how it disorients the lives of so many. You will be able to think through the main issues around faith deconstruction and explore wise and loving ways to respond from a biblical worldview.

  • Street Smarts : Using Questions To Answer Christianity’s Toughest Challenge

    $16.09

    Street Smarts by Gregory Koukl helps Christians better engage in productive conversations with those who challenge their convictions on a variety of issues. A follow-up to Koukl’s best-selling Tactics, this book focuses on revealing the fundamental flaws in common, current challenges to Christian beliefs and values. It then provides individual strategies to exploit those shortcomings by offering model questions and sample dialogues to help guide believers in genial, yet persuasive, conversations.

    Koukl begins by explaining the important difference in evangelism between a harvest approach (reaping) and a gardening approach (sowing). He then provides an overview of the tactical game plan he uses to have fruitful “gardening” conversations with those who are not yet Christians. Subsequent chapters tackle specific areas of challenge that Christians frequently face in discussions “on the street,” as it were–in those conversations with friends, family, or critics that believers often avoid because they feel out of their element, vulnerable, or exposed.

    With the specific challenges he addresses, Koukl shows precisely how and why each falters. instructing the reader in a lucid, well-organized, and easy-to-follow fashion. He then provides a specific set of questions–the same questions Koukl uses in his own encounters–that are embedded in sample mini-dialogues the Christian can use to exploit those flaws in an amicable, yet incisive, way.

    Some questions are used to get the discussion moving forward in a disarming fashion. Others are aimed more directly at the flaws or liabilities of the typical challenges people raise. Questions encourage challengers to think more carefully about their objections or consider problems with their own views that they may not have considered or even have been aware of.

    Street Smarts equips Christians to handle tough challenges in a straightforward and user-friendly way. It provides the practical tools they need to keep them in the driver’s seat of otherwise difficult and discomfiting conversations. It enables them to stand up for Christ in a safe, genial, yet effective way.

  • Why Did God Do That

    $16.99

    If God is good, then why did he do that?

    Violent wars, harsh laws, pronounced judgments. Christianity proclaims God’s goodness, yet the Bible is filled with passages that seem to paint a different picture. On the surface, such depictions can hinder our confidence in God’s goodness. But when we’re willing to look deeper, we discover a consistent purpose behind everything God does–and that he is greater than we could ever imagine.

    Alongside bestselling author Josh McDowell, Matthew Tingblad invites you to discover how a good God has good reasons for his challenging actions in the Bible. Throughout, you will uncover the reality of God’s consistent motives and purposes: holiness, justice, and radical mercy.

    Whether you have your own questions about God or are ministering to those who do, Matthew and Josh will guide you through these difficult passages and ideas, all the while pointing to God’s power and redeeming love. Find confidence and joy in discovering that God is good–always good–even in the passages of Scripture that appear to convey otherwise.

  • Surprised By Doubt

    $21.99

    Even those who live by faith sometimes doubt. Those doubts don’t have to mean the end of Christian identity.

    In Surprised by Doubt, Joshua Chatraw and Jack Carson help readers rediscover a deeper faith in the midst of a confusing world. They invite skeptics and doubters to explore the ancient faith for a new perspective on contemporary Christianity.

    With pastoral care and intellectual rigor, Chatraw and Carson not only help Christians think through the issues confronting them. They also help readers engage their emotional journey of anxiety, fear, anger, and frustration. Readers will discover the wisdom of the past and ways to reimagine a faith that can thrive alongside doubt.

  • Set Adrift : Deconstructing What You Believe Without Sinking Your Faith

    $13.99

    How to analyze and reevaluate your Christian beliefs and experiences in the church while keeping the core of your faith intact.

    The number of Christians leaving the church today is significant. Many feel there is no place for them within the faith–they no longer feel at home in their church community or tradition. For various reasons, they are unsettled by the version of Christianity they’ve inherited.

    Stripping away the nonessential aspects of Christianity, Sean McDowell and John Marriott will help you navigate the jarring questions and cultural challenges that lead many to walk away from the faith. You’ll come to recognize that there are other ways Christians throughout history have understood what faithfulness to Jesus looks like.

    Each chapter provides practical advice on how to disassemble, rethink, and reassemble beliefs that are truly Christian and culturally and personally relevant. You’ll learn how you can continue to seek an authentic faith by:

    *Establishing Jesus and his teachings as the foundation.
    *Utilizing the creeds as boundary markers of what is essential.
    *Seeing the entire Bible as a truthful revelation from God.
    *Seeing Christianity as a historic and global tradition that encompasses diverse communities and viewpoints.

    The authors of this book can personally identify with the process of disillusionment that many young believers go through. They wrote Set Adrift as people who had to navigate their own way back through the fog of deconstruction. They wrote it to offer their own personal suggestions for what to do when you’re not sure what to believe anymore.

  • Coming To Faith Through Dawkins

    $21.99

    Richard Dawkins = Christian evangelist?

    Editors Denis Alexander and Alister McGrath gather other intelligent minds from around the world to share their startling commonality: Richard Dawkins and his fellow New Atheists were instrumental in their conversions to Christianity.

    Despite a wide range of backgrounds and cultures, all are united in the fact that they were first enthusiasts for the claims and writings of the New Atheists. But each became disillusioned by the arguments and conclusions of Dawkins, causing them to look deeper and with more objectivity at religious faith. The fallacies of Christianity Dawkins warns of simply don’t exist.

    Spending time in this fascinating and powerful book is like being invited to the most interesting dinner party you’ve ever attended. Listen as twelve men and women from five different countries across a variety of professions–philosophers, artists, historians, engineers, scientists, and more–explain their journeys from atheism to faith. In the end, you may come away having reached the same conclusion: authentic Christian faith is in fact more intellectually convincing and rational than New Atheism.

  • Chasing Proof Finding Faith

    $17.99

    He had science and an Ivy League pedigree-why did he need God? Immersed in his physics studies at Cornell, Tom Rudelius never thought much about God until his brother, a new convert to Christianity, challenged him to explore faith. To placate his twin, he reluctantly began exploring the Bible and the life of Jesus. Seeking proof of God’s existence, he found himself in a world of uncertainty, faced with plenty of reasons for both faith and doubt.

    In Chasing Proof, Finding Faith, Tom, now a rising young theoretical physicist, traces his journey to unexpected faith, through subsequent doubt and anxiety, and ultimately to a firmer, life-transforming allegiance to Jesus. Along the way, he explores some of the issues he wrestled with, including:

    *Creation and cosmic origins
    *The problem of evil and suffering
    *The compatibility of miracles with science and the plausibility of Jesus’ resurrection
    *The reliability of the Bible

    While Tom never found absolute proof of God or Christianity, he ultimately concluded that the existing evidence for both is compelling and compatible with science. His searingly honest story is a potent guide for those doubting or exploring faith.

  • Bulwarks Of Unbelief

    $32.99

    How modernity creates atheists–and what the church must do about it.

    Millions of people in the West identify as atheists. Christians often respond to this reality with proofs of God’s existence, as though rational arguments for atheism were the root cause of unbelief. In Bulwarks of Unbelief, Joseph Minich argues that a felt absence of God, as experienced by the modern individual, offers a better explanation for the rise in atheism. Recent technological and cultural shifts in the modern West have produced a perceived challenge to God’s existence. As modern technoculture reshapes our awareness of reality and belief in the invisible, it in turn amplifies God’s apparent silence. In this new context, atheism is a natural result. And absent of meaning from without, we have turned within.

    Christians cannot escape this aspect of modern life. Minich argues that we must consciously and actively return to reality. If we reattune ourselves to God’s story, reintegrate the whole person, and reinhabit the world, faith can thrive in this age of unbelief.

  • Why So Many Christians Have Left The Faith

    $19.99

    FROM THE BEST-SELLING AUTHOR OF JEZEBEL’S WAR WITH AMERICA, HYPER-GRACE, AND THE REAL KOSHER JESUS

    At a time when the Bible and Christianity are considered untrustworthy, will we choose faith or follow the culture?

    This book will provide you with the facts and understanding you need to respond to difficult questions biblically and stay rooted in your faith even when others seem to be abandoning theirs.

    We are living in unprecedented times when Christian leaders are renouncing their faith and large numbers of believers are falling away. Is this the final apostasy prophesied by Jesus and Paul? And can we do anything to help those struggling with their faith? In Why So Many Christians Have Left the Faith, Dr. Michael L. Brown confronts the problem of “Christian deconstruction” with solid, faith-building answers and honest responses to difficult questions. He addresses:

    *What the Bible says about an end-time falling away and whether that is what we are seeing in our day;

    *How solidarity with and sympathy for the LGBT movement has brought with it a rejection of biblical values;

    *The effect of leadership scandals on the credibility of the gospel;

    *How the me-centered gospel is contributing to the current faith crisis by putting God on trial;

    *The contemporary objections to the Bible’s moral standards;

    *The problem of pluralism; and

    *What the Bible does and doesn’t say about future punishment in hell, while also examining the scriptural statement that “God is love.”

    Looking at the stories of those who fell away as well as the larger cultural factors, this book offers solid answers to the major attacks against the Bible and helps readers build an unshakable faith.

  • How To Know God Exists

    $17.99

    Three questions are etched into everyone’s subconscious: Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Josh McDowell and Thomas Williams team up to show why nothing short of God answers these questions. But the problem is that in today’s secularized culture, God has largely been banished.

    How to Know God Exists explores in depth solid reasons for believing in God and restoring him to his rightful place in our lives. Josh McDowell is widely known for his powerful defenses of God based on historical and biblical evidences. In this book he and Thomas take a new direction and present often-unexplored but formidable evidences based on sheer reason, observable reality, and solid science. They show that belief in God is not the blind, unthinking, and intellectually indefensible fancy today’s secularism makes it out to be.

    How to Know God Exists will:

    *Offer rational defenses for the existence of God, truth, morality, meaning, and reason

    *Open vistas of beauty and joy denied to readers by the sterility of secularism

    *Use reason, logic, experience, and common sense to show that God offers the truth required to make sense of reality and bring meaning and joy to life

    By reason and common sense, How to Know God Exists shows that meaning itself is rooted in the existence of God.

  • More Than A White Mans Religion

    $26.99

    Though many today accuse Christianity of being a white, imperialistic religion, it is actually the source for cherished Western ideals of racial and gender equality. In More Than a White Man’s Religion, author and speaker Abdu Murray shares stories from the Bible and his own experiences as a global apologist, a member of an ethnic minority, a son of immigrants, and a former Muslim to show that the gospel message provides dignity and liberty to non-whites and women.

    More Than a White Man’s Religion reveals:

    *The ethnically diverse roots of biblical stories and passages that inspired some of the greatest social reforms in history

    *How challenging and sometimes confusing Bible passages and stories can be best understood to champion equality for ethnically diverse people and women

    *Ways believers can bring real and lasting change to our culture’s pervasive racial, ethnic, and gender equality issues by following Jesus’ and his followers’ examples

    Without overlooking the places where Christianity has failed to live up to its own ideals, Murray challenges the myth that Christianity is an oppressive, Western religion and shows believers how to better fulfill their God-given mandate to uphold the dignity of every human being.

    Tackling head-on one of the most serious challenges to the Christian faith in our multicultural age, More Than a White Man’s Religion demonstrates how the gospel can inspire positive change for modern culture.

  • Air We Breathe

    $16.99

    Is Christianity history? Or is Christian history the deepest explanation of the modern world?

    Today in the west, many consider the church to be dead or dying. Christianity is seen as outdated, bigoted and responsible for many of society’s problems. This leaves many believers embarrassed about their faith and many outsiders wary of religion. But what if the Christian message is not the enemy of our modern Western values, but the very thing that makes sense of them?

    In this fascinating book, Glen Scrivener takes readers on a journey to discover how the teachings of Jesus not only turned the ancient world upside down, but continue to underpin the way we think of life, worth, and meaning. Far from being a relic from the past, the distinctive ideas of Christianity, such as freedom, kindness, progress and equality, are a crucial part of the air that we breathe. As author Glen Scrivener says in his introduction: “The extraordinary impact of Christianity is seen in the fact that we don’t notice it.

    This is a book for both believers and sceptics–giving Christians confidence to be open about their faith and showing non-Christians the ways in which the message of Jesus makes sense of their most cherished beliefs. Whoever you are, you’ll gain a deeper appreciation for the values you hold dear as you discover the power and profundity of Jesus and his revolution.

    *Why believers find it difficult to share the good news of salvation, despite the variety of fruit that always abounds.

    *Why non-believers often choose to walk away from the claims of the Messiah, even when they know or at least suspect in their hearts that His claims are true.

    *Why the early church felt compelled to proclaim His message, regardless of the risks and costs.

    More than this, however, Never Ashamed is a book of stories:

    *The man who told Avi he wouldn’t stop him from jumping out a window.

    *The Marxist lady trying to figure him out who eventually concluded he was a provocateur

    *The woman who prayed for God to give her compassion like Him and wept when she received it

    *The Soviet guard who helped Avi’s team pass out literature

    These and many more encounters that Avi shares will make you laugh, cry, and be filled with joy at the winsome ways in which he brings people to Jesus.

  • Practical Religion : Essential Biblical Truths For Daily Christian Living

    $24.99

    Practical Religion, by J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), was first published in 1878 and is renowned as a theological and apologetic Christian “classic”-esteemed for its clear, profound and penetrating narrative on the practice of genuine Christian living. Within its pages, Ryle masterfully unfolds practical biblical truths in a series of treatises, or “papers” as he calls them, each written to address a critical aspect of where personal faith in Christ and the practice of that faith in holy living unite and are essential for Christian growth and effective discipleship.

    Ryle exposes hypocrisy and nominalism in religion, or “Churchianity” as he calls it, which was as systemic in his day as it is today. His poignant narrative appeals to the evangelical Church as well as to individuals who profess to be Christians-a call to self-examination in all things, and a return to sound Biblical truths seriously and practically applied in every aspect of life.

    Ryle’s powerful, engaging style penetrates the heart and challenges the mind of its readers and is not for the faint of heart. Ryle’s design is to stir the hearts and minds of those who genuinely and humbly seek a deeper abiding, surrendered life in Christ. No wonder his equally renowned contemporary English minister, Charles Spurgeon, considered Ryle “An evangelical champion. One of the bravest and best of men.” J.I. Packer calls Practical Religion, “The manual for the practice of Christianity.”

    J. C. (John Charles) Ryle was the first Bishop of Liverpool, England, and one of the most influential evangelical ministers and writers of the nineteenth century. He was renowned for his rare ability to bring the riches of Biblical truth, plainly and powerfully, to the hearts of his hearers and readers.

    Practical Religion will enrich the believer’s walk with Christ and provide the Church with much needed insight for preaching and living genuine Christianity, now and in every generation!

    In The Case for Faith, bestselling author, journalist, and former atheist Lee Strobel turns his investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief in God–the eight heart barriers to faith:

    *Since evil and suffering exist, a loving God cannot
    *Since miracles contradict science, they cannot be true
    *Evolution explains life, so God isn’t needed
    *God isn’t worthy of worship if he kills innocent children
    *It’s offensive to claim Jesus is the only way to God
    *A loving God would never torture people in hell
    *Church history is littered with oppression and violence
    *I still have doubts, so I can’t be a Christian

    This bestselling book is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with difficult questions standing squarely in their path. For Christians, it will deepen their convictions and give them fresh confidence in defending their faith to skeptical friends, or during the hardest of times, when they have to defend their faith to themselves in moments of doubt.

  • I Dont Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist (Revised)

    $21.99

    To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable.

    Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.

    $17.99

    A movement seeks to redefine Christianity. Some think it’s a much-needed progressive reformation. Others believe it’s an attack on historic Christianity.Alisa Childers never thought she would question her Christian faith.

  • Case For Miracles

    $11.99

    New York Times bestselling author Lee Strobel trains his investigative sights on the hot-button question: is it really credible to believe God intervenes supernaturally in people’s lives today?

    This provocative book starts with an unlikely interview in which America’s foremost skeptic builds a seemingly persuasive case against the miraculous. But then Strobel travels the country to quiz scholars to see whether they can offer solid answers to atheist objections. Along the way, he encounters astounding accounts of healings and other phenomena that simply cannot be explained away by naturalistic causes. The book features the results of exclusive new scientific polling that shows miracle accounts are much more common than people think.

    What’s more, Strobel delves into the most controversial question of all: what about miracles that don’t happen? If God can intervene in the world, why doesn’t he do it more often to relieve suffering? Many American Christians are embarrassed by the supernatural, not wanting to look odd or extreme to their neighbors. Yet, The Case for Miracles shows not only that the miraculous is possible, but that God still does intervene in our world in awe-inspiring ways. Here’s a unique book that examines all sides of this issue and comes away with a passionate defense for God’s divine action in lives today.

    Also available: The Case for Miracles Spanish edition, kids’ edition, and student edition.

  • Is Jesus History

    $12.99

    What can we really know for sure about the past? Can anything from ancient history be regarded as ‘fact’? In particular, how seriously can we take the historical sources for the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth? Did he really even live in first-century Galilee and Judaea, or is he a figure of legend?

    In this timely book, historian Dr John Dickson unpacks how the field of history works, giving readers the tools to evaluate for themselves what we can confidently say about figures like the Emperor Tiberius, Alexander the Great, Pontius Pilate, and, of course, Jesus of Nazareth.

    He presents the evidence, methods, and conclusions of mainstream scholars–both Christian and not–and asks some pertinent contemporary questions, without offering any pushy answers: If Jesus really did exist, what are we to make of his own claims and those of his followers, and what would any of it mean for us today?

  • Undeniable Evidence : 10 Of The Top Scientific Facts In The Bible

    $16.99

    Even though the Bible wasn’t written as a scientific book, it contains amazing scientific facts that were penned thousands of years before man discovered them-facts regarding the earth being round, its free float in space, laws of quarantine, the existence of the dinosaur, and many others.

    Although Christians don’t need convincing that the Bible is the Word of God (because they have met the Author), such gems in Scripture tend to warm the heart and solidify our faith.

    While this publication is written primarily for Christians, unbelievers-who are perhaps interested in the Bible’s immutable promise of everlasting life-may like to examine the undeniable evidence, and consider the implications if its offer of Heaven and warning of Hell are indeed true.

But even so, the Christian faith includes many controversial beliefs that non-Christians find hard to accept.

  • Case For Easter

    $2.39

    Did Jesus of Nazareth really rise from the dead?

    Of the many world religions, only one claims that its founder returned from the grave. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the very cornerstone of Christianity.

    But a dead man coming back to life? In our sophisticated age, when myth has given way to science, who can take such a claim seriously? Some argue that Jesus never died on the cross. Conflicting accounts make the empty tomb seem suspect.

    How credible is the evidence for–and against–the resurrection? Focusing his award-winning skills as a legal journalist on history’s most compelling enigma, Lee Strobel retraces the startling findings that led him from atheism to belief. He examines:

    *The Medical Evidence–Was Jesus’ death a sham and his resurrection a hoax?
    *The Evidence of the Missing Body–Was Jesus’ body really absent from his tomb?
    *The Evidence of Appearances–Was Jesus seen alive after his death on the cross?

    Written in a hard-hitting journalistic style, The Case for Easter probes the core issues of the resurrection. Jesus Christ, risen from the dead: superstitious myth or life-changing reality? The evidence is in. The verdict is up to you.

  • Natures Case For God

    $11.99

    Can we know anything about God apart from the Bible?

    Many Protestant Christians are suspicious of natural theology, which claims that we can learn about God through revelation outside the Bible. How can we know anything about God apart from Scripture? In Nature’s Case for God, distinguished theologian John Frame argues that Christians are not forbidden from seeking to learn about God from his creation. In fact, the Bible itself shows this to be possible.

    In nine short and lucid chapters that include questions for discussion, Frame shows us what we can learn about God and how we relate to him from the world outside the Bible. If the heavens really do declare the glory of God, as the psalmist claims, it makes a huge difference for how we understand God and how we introduce him to those who don’t yet know Christ.

Michael and Carl take nine of the hardest, such as “Doesn’t Jesus ruin your fun?” “Why is there so much suffering?” and “What does Jesus really think about being gay?” These aren’t questions with easy answers; but, as they show, they are questions that have good answers. Written for people of all backgrounds and beliefs, it’s a book that is short but not simplistic, and clear but not condescending.

    If you are a Christian struggling with these issues… if you want to have confidence to talk to your friends about these things… or if you are a non-Christian who wants answers to the hardest questions you can ask… grab this book.
