  • Untrustworthy : The Knowledge Crisis Breaking Our Brains, Polluting Our Pol

    $19.97

    Which media outlets will help me be a responsible news consumer? How do I know what is true and whom I can trust? What can I do to combat all the misinformation and how it’s impacting people I love?

    Many Americans are agonizing over questions such as these, feeling unsure and overwhelmed in today’s chaotic information environment.

    American life and politics are suffering from a raging knowledge crisis, and the church is no exception. In Untrustworthy, Bonnie Kristian unpacks this crisis and explores ways to combat it in our own lives, families, and church communities.

    Drawing from her extensive experience in journalism and her training as a theologian, Kristian explores social media, political and digital culture, online paranoia, and the press itself. She explains factors that contribute to our confusion and helps Christians pay attention to how we consume content and think about truth. Finally, she provides specific ways to take action, empowering readers to avoid succumbing to or fueling the knowledge crisis.

  • Live Your Truth And Other Lies

    $10.97

    Are you tired of feeling like you have to check social media to find out what you’re supposed to think? Are you weary of the latest self-help books that promise to set you free but only imprison you with laundry lists of studies to consider, positive affirmations to recite, and Facebook groups to join?

    We’ve all seen the memes that populate the internet: live your truth, follow your heart, you only have one life to live. They sound nice and positive. But what if these slogans are actually lies that unhinge us from reality and leave us anxious and exhausted? Another Gospel? author Alisa Childers invites you to examine modern lies that are disguised as truths in today’s culture. Everyday messages of peace, fulfillment, and empowerment swirl around social media. On the surface, they seem like sentiments of freedom and hope, but in reality they are deeply deceptive.

    In Live Your Truth (and Other Lies), Alisa will help you to:

    *uncover the common lies repeated within progressive circles
    *hold on to the soul-restoring truths that God’s Word offers
    *be empowered to live the way your Creator designed you

    Being the captain of your own destiny and striving to make your dreams a reality is a huge burden that you were never meant to bear. Discover true freedom instead.

  • Political Gospel : Public Witness In A Politically Crazy World

    $19.99

    Almost every pastor feels the pressure to get people in the doors. More people means Christians are constantly accused of being too political or not political enough.

    Often, the accusations are fair. Christians tend to get stuck in one of two political ditches: we either privatize our faith or make it partisan. We think religion and politics should be separate and never intermingle, or we align so tightly with a political party that we conflate the gospel with a human agenda.

    In Political Gospel, Patrick Schreiner argues Christianity not only has political implications but is itself a politic. The gospel at its very core is political–Jesus declared Himself to be King. But He does not allow you to put Him in your political box.

    In a supercharged political climate, Political Gospel explores what it means for Christians to have a biblical public witness by looking to Scripture, the early church, and today. Should we submit to governing authorities or subvert them? Are we to view them as agents of the dark forces or entities that promote order? In these pages, we’ll see that Christians live in a paradox, and we’ll see how to follow Christ our King right into the political craziness of our day.

  • Beyond Biden : Rebuilding The America We Love

    $18.99

    Now a National Bestseller!

    Bestselling author Newt Gingrich exposes the anti-American forces that have grown so large and so aggressive in their quest for power.

    The struggle between the defenders of America as an exceptional nation and the forces of anti-Americanism is reaching a fever pitch. These forces have grown so large, so well-financed, so entrenched and aggressive that they must be studied closely and understood completely if America is to survive this imminent civil war.

    In Beyond Biden, bestselling author Newt Gingrich brings together the various strands of the movement seeking to destroy true, historic American values and replace this country with one that’s imposed on us by the combined power of government and social acceptance.

  • Join The Resistance

    $18.00

    An awakening has been happening across our society.

    People increasingly recognize how long-standing, systemic issues have prevented many from flourishing. But often Christians are not sure how best to engage. Does it help to march and hold signs? What can we do to contribute and not further complicate things?

    Faith-rooted justice advocate and activist Michelle Ferrigno Warren equips Christians to join Christ’s restorative work in the world. In nearly three decades of experience, she left much of her privilege to work alongside the poor and marginalized in the restoration of individuals and communities, collaborating with community leaders, marching in streets, and meeting with and speaking truth to power. She says, How you show up is just as important as showing up. From the grassroots to the grass tops, Warren invites us to understand our place in this moment and learn from those who have gone before: the poets and prophets who call us to resist oppression and injustice.

    Biblical, historical, and contemporary examples give us ways to walk in God’s righteousness, truth, and peace. We can better understand our shared solidarity, persevere in the midst of struggle, bring people along, and remain rooted in joy as we continue the good work of kingdom justice.

  • Return Of The Gods

    $31.99

    The Return of the Gods, Cahn takes the reader on a journey from an ancient parable, the ancient inscriptions in Sumer, Assyria, and Babylonia that become the puzzle pieces behind what is taking place in our world to this day, specifically in America.

    The mystery involves the gods. Who are they? What are they? And is it possible that these beings, whose origins are from ancient times, are the unseen catalysts of modern culture?

    Is it possible that these gods lie behind the most pivotal events, forces, and movements taking place in our nation and around the world at this very moment? Are the gods at this very moment transforming our culture, our children, our lives, and America itself?

    Could this mystery have even determined the exact days on which Supreme Court decisions had to be handed down?

    What is the Dark Trinity? Is it possible that what we in the modern world take as nothing more than ancient mythology could actually possess a reality beyond our fathoming?

    Who is the Possessor? The Enchanter? The Destroyer? And the Sorceress? Could a sign that has appeared all over America and the world be linked to the gods of Mesopotamia? And if so, what does it actually mean?

    Could the gods have returned to New York City and an ancient mythology played out on the streets in real time? Is it possible that the gods lie behind everything from what appears on our computer monitors, our televisions and movie screens; to the lessons given in our classrooms; to the breakdown of the family; to wokism; to the occult; to our addictions; to the Supreme Court; to cancel culture; to children?s cartoons; to every force and factor that has transformed the parameters of gender; to that which appears in our stores, on our T-shirts, and on our coffee mugs—to that which is, at this very moment, transforming America and much of the world? Is it possible that behind all these things are ancient mysteries that go back to the Middle East and ancient Mesopotamia? This and so much more, most of which we can?t even reveal in this description, will be uncovered.

    Is it possible that the gods are even affecting your life right now? How can you recognize it? And what can you do about it?

    The Return of the Gods is not only one of the most explosive books you?ll ever read but also one of the most profound. It will reveal the most stunning secrets and truths behind what is happening before your eyes in America and the nations. You will see things, even in your world, in

  • Nation Of Victims

    $29.00

    America’s inner spirit has been domesticated by a new culture that rejects excellence and embraces victimhood.

    Hardship is now equated with victimhood. Outward displays of vulnerability in defeat are rewarded more than winning unabashedly. The pursuit of excellence and exceptionalism are at the heart of American identity, and the disappearance of these ideals in our country leaves a deep moral and cultural vacuum in its wake.

    But the solution isn’t to simply complain about it. It’s to revive a new cultural movement in America that puts excellence first again.

    New York Times bestselling author Vivek Ramaswamy makes the case from firsthand experience that the essence of true American identity is to pursue excellence unapologetically–no matter your skin color or where your parents came from.

  • How To Win Friends And Influence Enemies

    $18.99

    Instant National Best Seller!

    Political commentator and media personality Will Witt gives young conservatives the ammunition they need to fight back against the liberal media.

    Popular culture in America today is dominated by the left. Most young people have never even heard of conservative values from someone their age, and if they do, the message is often bland and outdated. Almost every Hollywood actor, musician, media personality, and role model for young people in America rejects conservative values, and Gen Zs and millennials are quick to regurgitate these viewpoints without developing their own opinions on issues.

    So many young conservatives in America want to stand up for their beliefs in their classrooms, at their jobs, with their friends, or on social media, but they don’t have the tools to do so. In How to Win Friends and Influence Enemies, Will Witt arms Gen Zs and millennials with the knowledge and skills to combat the leftist narrative they hear every day.

    $18.99

  • Kingdom And Country

    $16.99

    We love God. We love our country. What does it look like to love each properly and well?

    National tensions are at a record high. People on all points in the political spectrum care deeply about their country, although they differ wildly in their opinions about what it looks like to serve that country well. As Christians, we love God and seek to follow him. At the same time, nothing shapes us and tugs at our loyalties quite like the place we live. And of course we are regularly encouraged to pledge our allegiance to our country–or particular understandings of it. Who wins when the priorities of God and our country clash?

    In Kingdom and Country, a collection of leading Christian thinkers and practitioners take a holistic approach to considering the questions of patriotism, nationalism, and where our ultimate loyalties must like. Contributors include Alejandro Mandes, Juliet Liu, Ryan Tafilowski, Derek Vreeland, Rod Wilson, Michelle Reyes, Amanda Smith, Karen Wilk, Sean Palmer, and Tina Boesch

    Kingdom and Country is the second in a series of Kingdom Conversations, books that bring together trusted Christian voices to address some of the most urgent and perplexing challenges of our time in timeless and redemptive ways.

    We are the answer to America’s growing darkness.

    After reading this book, you will have the keys you need to be a vibrant participant of the political system to see laws and policies passed that will positively affect generations for God’s purposes.

    In Running Into the Fire, Terri Hasdorff draws from her more than twenty years in politics to reveal how people of faith can effectively influence government and push back against the liberal socialist agenda.

    In addition to revealing how the rise of super PACs and massive marketing machines are getting unqualified and corrupt candidates elected, this book gives clear-cut direction for how people of conscience can get involved in politics, whether they are soccer moms with limited resources or multimillionaires capable of making sizeable campaign contributions. Sharing advice for finding and supporting honest candidates and ensuring contributions go to campaign needs and not bloated consultant salaries, Hasdorff also reveals:

    – How to make a difference as an average citizen,
    – What to know before running for political office, and
    – How to give in the most effective way.

    All is not lost. People of faith really can make a difference in their communities and the nation, but they must get involved in politics. If they don’t, the country could be in for years of darkness. This book will reveal practical ways they can affect change starting now.

    $17.99

    Encourages ordinary Christians to engage in real talk together about race and change

    There are a lot of conversations happening in homes and churches about difficult and timely topics–but when it comes to race, too many Christians stay silent. They may be overwhelmed, or worry about saying the wrong thing.

    Saundra Dalton-Smith and Lori Stanley Roeleveld–two women of different races who didn’t know each other well before this project–believe there’s a clear path to meaningful discussion about racism with someone of a different skin color. Instead of avoiding hard conversations, they enter a transparent and open dialogue about race, privilege, bias, and discrimination.

Lori and Saundra demonstrate how to give voice to pain without blame, how to express anger without ridicule, and how to ask questions without guilt. After reading the pages filled with vulnerable personal stories, biblical teaching, conversation starters, and practical next steps readers will be equipped to have their own healthy conversations.

    This book is for all who see God in ethnic diversity and want to be part of a true and deep understanding process. In these pages, there is hope to heal the racial divide and bring together the body of Christ.

  • Door Made For Me

    In this story based on the author’s childhood, a young Black boy confronts his first experience of overt racism.

While offering an unflinching look at the emotional impact of the encounter, Tyler Merritt presents a message of love and acceptance that will resonate with young readers and offer a starting point for conversations about racial equality between parent or caregiver and child.

  • Forgiven And Set Free

    $15.99

    No matter what influences a woman to end a pregnancy, the physical, psychological, and spiritual side effects are real and not always anticipated.

    Linda Cochrane has been there. With an understanding spirit and a gentle hand, she guides hurting women to bring their emotional scars “out of the dark past and into his holy light” where true and lasting healing can take place. Cochrane delves into the Scriptures to offer help with issues such as relief, denial, anger, forgiveness, depression, letting go, and acceptance.

    For every woman yearning for the peace of God’s forgiveness, this study can be the first step to healing and wholeness.

  • Zero Hour America

    $23.00

    America has lost its way. And America will fall–unless.

    Revolution? Oligarchy? Or homecoming? Americans are approaching a zero hour for the republic and its distinctive view of ordered freedom. America is caught between two revolutions and alternately suppresses and squanders freedom with a prodigal carelessness, with little understanding of the responsibilities that freedom requires.

    Os Guinness warns that if America abandons its distinctive ideals and ideas, we will have carved into the chronicles of history yet another example of the failure of a free society. Like other crucial times in world history, the present crisis is a civilizational moment and also a pivot point that could lead to national renewal. Outlining seven key foundation stones of freedom, Guinness lays out a pathway for defining and ordering freedom, righting national wrongs, and passing freedom’s baton from generation to generation.

    Human freedom is precious and rare, and citizens who prize it must do what it takes to renew and sustain societies that are free for all of their members. America’s window of opportunity is brief, and the alternative to renewal is bleak. The present moment must not be missed.

  • Triumph Of Beauty

    $17.99

    This last year exposed the anger and fear of the world. It also exposed the trajectory of humankind away from God, against his Church, and into increasing darkness–with the darkest hours still ahead. But the Lord has an unexpected answer for the rise of ugliness and violence.

    Here International House of Prayer leader David Sliker gives believers hope for the times to come. God’s merciful answer to the world’s rage is a beautiful, unified Church, one that counters anger with kindness and mercy, loves its enemies, and overcomes bitterness and offense. David also shows how we can lay hold of the Lord’s beauty via revelation and transformation. When we do, we will love like he loves. We will endure without despair. We will display his works. We will boldly, tenderly, and lovingly stand for his truth. And we will rise up as his Bride, whose beauty eclipses the darkness.

  • Silencing White Noise

    $19.99

    Racism is omnipresent in American life, both public and private. We are immersed in what prominent Black church leader Willie Dwayne Francois III calls white noise–the racist speech, ideas, and policies that lull us into inaction on racial justice. White noise masks racial realities and prevents constructive responses to microaggressions, structural inequality, and overt interpersonal racism.

    In this book, Francois calls people of all races to take up practices that overcome silence and inaction on race and that advance racial repair. Drawing from his antiracism curriculum, the Public Love Organizing and Training (PLOT) Project, Francois encourages us to move from a “colorblind” stance and mythic innocence to one that takes an honest account of our national history and acknowledges our complicity in racism as a prelude to antiracist interventions.

    Weaving together personal narrative, theology, and history, this book invites us to engage 6 “rhythms of reparative intercession.” These are six practices of antiracism that aim to repair harm by speaking up and “acting up” on behalf of others. Silencing White Noise offers concrete ways to help people wrest free from the dangers of racism and to develop lifelong Christian antiracist practices.

  • Celebrities For Jesus

    $19.97

    Many Christian leaders use their fame and influence to great effect. Whether that popularity resides at the local church level or represents national or international influence, many leaders have effectively said to their followers, “Follow me as I follow Christ.” But fame that is cultivated for its own sake, without attendant spiritual maturity and accountability, has a shadow side that runs counter to the heart of the gospel. Celebrity–defined as social power without proximity–has led to abuses of power, the cultivation of persona, and a fixation on profits.

    In light of the fall of famous Christian leaders in recent years, the time has come for the church to reexamine its relationship to celebrity. Award-winning journalist Katelyn Beaty explores the ways fame has reshaped the American church, explains how and why celebrity is woven into the fabric of the evangelical movement, and identifies many ways fame has gone awry in recent years. She shows us how evangelical culture is uniquely attracted to celebrity gurus over and against local institutions, and she offers a renewed vision of ordinary faithfulness, helping us all keep fame in its proper place.

  • Broken News : Why The Media Rage Machine Divides America And How To Fight B

    $29.00

    A former Fox News political editor reveals how news organizations have succumbed to the temptation of “rage revenue” through slanted coverage that drives political division and rewards outrageous conduct.

    Rage revenue-addicted news companies are plagued by shoddy reporting, sensationalism, groupthink, and brain-dead partisan tribalism. Newsrooms rely on emotion-driven blabber to entrance conflict-addled super users.

    In Broken News, Chris Stirewalt, celebrated as one of America’s sharpest political analysts in print and on television, employs his trademark wit and insight to give readers an inside look at these problems. He explains that these companies don’t reward bad journalism because they like it, but because it is easy and profitable.

    Take it from Stirewalt: As a top editor and election forecaster on Fox News’ decision desk during the 2020 election, he knows firsthand what happens when viewers (including the president of the United States) become more accustomed to flattery and less willing to hear news that punctures their bubbles.

    Broken News is a fascinating, deeply researched, conversation-provoking study of how the news is made and how it must be repaired, with surprising takeaways about who’s to blame. Stirewalt goes deep inside the history of the industry to explain how today’s media divides America for profit. And he offers practical advice for how everyday readers, listeners and viewers can (and should) become better news consumers for the sake of the republic.

    This is a book for those who care about our country-and want the news to do the news again.

    The United States is in the middle of an unprecedented spiritual, technological, demographic, political and social transformation– moving from an older, mostly white, mostly Protestant, religion-friendly society to a younger diverse, multiethnic, pluralistic culture, where no one faith group will have the advantage. At the same time, millions of Americans are abandoning organized religion altogether in favor of disorganized disbelief.

    Reorganized Religion is an in-depth and critical look at why people are leaving American churches and what we lose as a society as it continues. But it also accepts the dismantling of what has come before and try to help readers reinvent the path forward. This book looks at the future of organized religion in America and outline the options facing churches and other faith groups. Will they retreat? Will they become irrelevant? Or will they find a new path forward?

    Written by veteran religion reporter Bob Smietana, Reorganized Religion is a journalistic look at the state of the American church and its future. It draws on polling data, interviews with experts, and reporting on how faith communities old and new are coping with the changing religious landscape, along with personal stories about how faith is lived in everyday life. It also profiles faith communities and leaders who are finding interesting ways to reimagine what church might look like in the future and discuss various ways we can reinvent this organization so it survives and thrives. The book also reflects the hope that perhaps people of faith can learn to become, if not friends with the larger culture, then at least better neighbors.

  • Strangers And Scapegoats

    $24.99

    We live in a world of oppositional relationships and increasing in-group/out-group divisions. Christian sociologist Matthew Vos explains how the problem of the stranger lies at the root of many problems humanity faces, such as racism, sexism, and nationalism. He applies classic sociological theory on “the stranger” to matters of faith and social justice, showing that an identity in Christ frees us to love strangers as neighbors and friends. The book also includes two guest chapters, one on intersex persons and the church and one on stranger-making in the “correctional” system.

  • Gospel Of Peace In A Violent World

    $40.00

    Blessed are the peacemakers.

    The gospel of Jesus Christ is the good news of peace: peace between God and humanity, peace among humans. And yet it can be difficult to see that peace in our broken, violent world.

    In this volume, Shawn Graves and Marlena Graves have gathered contributions from theologians, pastors, and practitioners on the importance and implementation of Christian nonviolence in today’s world. The vision they cast not only responds to the realities of war and conflict but also offers a broader, deeper understanding of peace that addresses topics such as race, gender, disability, immigration, the environment, food scarcity, and more–a holistic shalom that is evidence of God’s presence.

    May it be so.

  • Psalms For Black Lives

    $15.99

    In the summer of 2020, while composing a series of devotionals on the Psalms for their church, the Double Love Experience, authors Gabby Cudjoe-Wilkes and Andrew Wilkes recognized that these ancient words spoke truth and inspiration not only to their immediate community, but also to the growing number of people doing the holy, demanding work of pursuing justice, undoing structural racism, and building a society that truly values Black lives.

    The Psalms speak power today as they always have. They have spoken across generations. They have bridged cultural divides and social contexts with their emotional rawness, urge towards justice, and blunt candor about the coarse edges of walking with God. Psalms for Black Lives includes thirty devotions, each containing a psalm, a reflection, and an invitation for the reader to develop a justice imagination through further engagement with the text. Psalms for Black Lives also includes daily discussion questions to support small-group study and a guide for congregational and community groups who want to embody the words of the Psalms together.

  • America A Redemption Story

    $23.19

    America is at a crossroads, reckoning with contested narratives about its history and identity, and facing unprecedented division. Bestselling author Senator Tim Scott shares a renewed vision for the United States–and invites all Americans to find themselves within this nation’s redemptive story of opportunity, unity, and hope.

    Senator Scott knows what it’s like to live at the intersection of hardship and opportunity. From his roots in South Carolina, growing up in a poor, single-parent household to starting a successful small business to his rising political career in the Senate, Scott’s message of hope for America grows from his own life–the challenges, the achievements, and the work he’s currently doing to bring positive change to the people of the United States.

    In America, a Redemption Story, Scott invites readers on a compelling journey to reclaim the American dream today. Weaving together deeply personal memoirs, stories of his family’s struggle with poverty and injustice, and stirring accounts of fellow Americans past and present, Scott says we can see the truth of America’s identity in the stories of individuals–people whose lives embody the hope and resilience that have carried the nation through its greatest failures and challenges. Readers will

    *be inspired by the stories of personal grit and everyday heroism that reveal the power of a single individual to create positive change–for themselves, their communities, and their nation;

    *gain an insider’s view through Senator Scott’s stories from his political career, including his relationship with President Donald Trump and the breaching of the Capitol on January 6, 2021;

    *and learn why principles of personal responsibility, opportunity for all, and unity based on empathy provide the greatest hope for our nation’s future.

    At once a clear-eyed reckoning with America’s past and present failures, an ode to its exceptional accomplishments, and a vision of the greatness it can still achieve, this book is Scott’s call to all Americans to see themselves as inheritors–and fellow authors–of a story still being written.

  • Fault Lines : The Social Justice Movement And Evangelicalism’s Looming Cata

    $17.99

    A famed preacher, professor, and cultural anthropologist reveals the cancer of woke theology that has permeated seminaries and that threatens the evangelical church itself. Plus a call to all Christian congregations to eschew the lure of critical theory and hold to the path of an individual relationship with God.

    USA TODAY BESTSELLER!

    The Ground Is Moving

    The death of George Floyd at the hands of police in the summer of 2020 shocked the nation. As riots rocked American cities, Christians affirmed from the pulpit and in social media that “black lives matter” and that racial justice “is a gospel issue.”

    But what if there is more to the social justice movement than those Christians understand? Even worse: What if they’ve been duped into preaching ideas that actually oppose the Kingdom of God?

    In this powerful book, Voddie Baucham, a preacher, professor, and cultural apologist, explains the sinister worldview behind the social justice movement and Critical Race Theory–revealing how it already has infiltrated some seminaries, leading to internal denominational conflict, canceled careers, and lost livelihoods. Like a fault line, it threatens American culture in general–and the evangelical church in particular.

    Whether you’re a layperson who has woken up in a strange new world and wonders how to engage sensitively and effectively in the conversation on race or a pastor who is grappling with a polarized congregation, this book offers the clarity and understanding to either hold your ground or reclaim it.

  • Criminal InJustice : What The Push For Decarceration And Depolicing Gets Wr

    $29.00

    In his impassioned-yet-measured book, Rafael A. Mangual offers an incisive critique of America’s increasingly radical criminal justice reform movement, and makes a convincing case against the pursuit of “justice” through mass-decarceration and depolicing.

    After a summer of violent protests in 2020-sparked by the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Rayshard Brooks-a dangerously false narrative gained mainstream acceptance: Criminal justice in the United States is overly punitive and racially oppressive. But, the harshest and loudest condemnations of incarceration, policing, and prosecution are often shallow and at odds with the available data. And the significant harms caused by this false narrative are borne by those who can least afford them: black and brown people who are disproportionately the victims of serious crimes.

    In Criminal (In)Justice, Rafael A. Mangual offers a more balanced understanding of American criminal justice, and cautions against discarding traditional crime control measures. A powerful combination of research, data-driven policy journalism, and the author’s lived experiences, this book explains what many reform advocates get wrong, and illustrates how the misguided commitment to leniency places America’s most vulnerable communities at risk.

    The stakes of this moment are incredibly high. Ongoing debates over criminal justice reform have the potential to transform our society for a generation-for better or for worse. Grappling with the data-and the sometimes harsh realities they reflect-is the surest way to minimize the all-too-common injustices plaguing neighborhoods that can least afford them.

  • How To Be A Patriotic Christian

    $17.00

    What does it mean to love our country?

    Some Christians see loyalty to America as central to our faith and identity. Other Christians are skeptical that our nation warrants such devotion or attachment. But Richard Mouw encourages Christians to have a healthy sense of national peoplehood that promotes civic kinship and responsible citizenship. He navigates between Christian nationalism on one hand and cynicism about country on the other to avoid the perils of both idolatry and disengagement.

    Mouw grapples with sticky questions such as how to honor national holidays in church and the place of protests in forging a more perfect union. Placing love of country in the context of Christian love of neighbor, he sees patriotism as an expression of our heavenly citizenship and a call to help our country be a place where all people can thrive in peace.

    Mouw’s winsome and wise reflections direct our patriotic affections toward the civic good of others within our churches and in our communities. This guide helps us travel together on a shared national journey toward liberty and justice for all.

  • Analog Christian : Cultivating Contentment, Resilience, And Wisdom In The D

    The digital age is in the business of commodifying our attention.

    The technologies of our day are determined to keep us scrolling and swiping at all costs, plugged into a feedback loop of impatience, comparison, outrage, and contempt. Blind to the dangers, we enjoy its temporary pleasures, unaware of the damage to our souls.

    Jay Kim’s Analog Church explored the ways the digital age and its values affect the life of the church. In Analog Christian, he asks the same question of Christian discipleship. As the digital age inclines us to discontentment, fragility, and foolishness, how are followers of Jesus to respond? What is the theological basis for living in creative resistance to the forces of our day? How can Christians cultivate the contentment, resilience, and wisdom to not only survive but to thrive as we navigate the specific challenges of our age?

  • Hostages No More

    $29.00

    From coronavirus lockdowns to critical race theory in the classroom, it has become crystal clear that America’s schools aren’t working for America’s students and parents. No one knows this better than Betsy DeVos.

    Long before she was tapped by President Trump to serve as secretary of education, DeVos established herself as one of the country’s most influential advocates for education reform, from school choice and charter schools to protecting free speech on campus. She’s unflinching in standing up to the powerful interests who control and benefit from the status quo in education – which is why the unions, the media, and the radical left made her public enemy number one.

    Now, DeVos is ready to tell her side of the story after years of being vilified by the radical left for championing common-sense, conservative reforms in America’s schools.

    In Hostages No More, DeVos unleashes her candid thoughts about working in the Trump administration, recounts her battles over the decades to put students first, hits back at “woke” curricula in our schools, and details the reforms America must pursue to fix its long and badly broken education system. And she has stories to tell: DeVos offers blunt insights on the people and politics that stand in the way of fixing our schools.

    For students, families and concerned citizens, DeVos shares a roadmap for reclaiming education and securing the futures of our kids – and America.

  • Next Sunday : An Honest Dialogue About The Future Of The Church

    $17.00

    Will future generations find a church worth fighting for?

    A great reckoning is underway in the church today: a naming and exposing of the exclusivity, abuse, racism, patriarchy, and unchecked power that have marked evangelical Christianity for far too long. What kind of church will emerge on the other side?

    Like many families, the Beaches have been wrestling with this question. Together, Nancy and Samantha represent two generations: Nancy, a boomer, was a key player in the megachurch movement that revolutionized global ministry during the ’80s and ’90s, while Samantha, a millennial, is willing to abandon those massive buildings and celebrity cultures and find out whether the foundation holds. Each chapter offers their individual experiences and perspectives on a challenge facing the church and considers the way forward.

    Filled with deep introspection and keen insight, Next Sunday is a vulnerable conversation about what the church has been–and what it can be.

  • Grace Can Lead Us Home

    $29.99

    On any given night, more than half a million Americans and Canadians find themselves sleeping on the streets, in shelters, cars, and other places not meant for human habitation. Yet as this crisis continues to grow, it remains one of the least talked about–especially in churches. Even where compassion and empathy exist, the complexities around homelessness can make us feel stuck, overwhelmed, or numb to the existence of unhoused people in our cities and neighborhoods.?

    Reporting back from his work in homeless services, minister and advocate Kevin Nye introduces readers to the Christ he’s met in tents, shelters, and drop-in centers. He demystifies homelessness by journeying into complex issues like affordable housing, mental illness, addiction, and more, while reimagining our theological approach to these matters and educating us on how they intersect with homelessness.

    This thorough and intimate book shows us that from the margins, Jesus has something to teach us all about grace–something that could change the landscape of homelessness entirely if we’re ready to hear it.
