Accidental Feminist: Restoring Our Delight in God's Good Design
$14.99

"My name is Courtney. I'm an accidental feminist."

Although many Christians wouldn't identify themselves as feminists, the reality is that the feminist movement has influenced us all in profound ways. We unconsciously reflect our culture's ideas related to womanhood rather than what's found in the Bible.

In this book, Courtney Reissig--a wife, mom, and successful writer--recounts her journey out of "accidental feminism," offering wise counsel for Christian women related to relationships, body image, and more--drawing from the Bible rather than culture. Whether you're a committed feminist, a staunch traditionalist, or somewhere in between, this book will help you answer the question, "What does it mean to be a Christian woman?" You'll discover the joy, purpose and importance that are found in God's good design.

Afraid: Demon Possession and Spiritual Warfare in America
$15.99
Seances, Ouija boards, interactions with ghosts, practicing Voodoo, and summoning demonsthese are just some of the real-life confessions people have shared with author Rev. Robert Bennett. In many cases, these experiences led to horrifying hallucinations and even schizophrenia. But these are things that comprise spirituality for many Americans.

Biblical and Theological Foundations of the Family: The Domestic Church

0
Biblical and Theological Foundations of the Family: The Domestic Church
$39.95
Biblical and Theological Foundations of the Family argues that the family has a constitutive nature and a specific theological purpose, which God reveals in the church. Joseph Atkinson investigates the principles of the doctrine of Creation which inform the family "from the beginning"; the vital way the family functions as "carrier of the covenant" in the Old Testament; and the critical aspects of Hebraic anthropology, especially corporate personality, upon which the family is based.

This book provides a counter argument to the view of the human person developed in modern thought and which prevails today--the autonomous, self-determining individual, with no essential nature or social or ecclesial aspects. Atkinson discusses the constitutive corporate nature of the human person and how the covenantal family of the Old Testament finds its fulfillment in Jesus Christ. The author does so by investigating how baptism transforms the family and gives it an ecclesial identity, making it a "domestic church". He then examines the development of the family's ecclesial nature in the church fathers, and the providential re-appropriation of the family's inner ecclesial identity in the teachings of the Second Vatican Council and in subsequent magisterial teachings.

This ground-breaking work establishes a solid biblical and theological foundation on which a theology of the family can be constructed. It thus fills a critical lack in the current literature on the family. The wide range of sources, including Jewish, Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant, give this work a genuine ecumenical dimension. Biblical and Theological
Foundations of the Family
will become indispensable for anyone wanting to engage in serious study of the structure and meaning of the family and its place in the salvific will of God.

Bioethics: A Primer for Christians, 4th Ed.
$19.99

Amid continuing advances in medical research and treatment, Gilbert Meilaender's Bioethics has long provided thoughtful guidance on many of society's most difficult moral problems--including abortion, assisted reproduction, genetic experimentation, euthanasia, and much more. In this fourth edition, Meilaender updates much of the data referenced in the book and responds directly to recent developments, such as the CRISPR/Cas9 method of gene editing. Christians seeking discernment in this new decade will appreciate Meilaender's circumspect writing and his ability to address the nuances of each issue while maintaining strong and clearly stated moral convictions.

There are two kinds of spirituality in the world. One is wrong and one is right. One is false and one is true.

These seven Christian rules that every Christian ought to break are taught as if they were doctrine, but are nothing more than the traditions of men.

$15.99
College students and recent graduates are often uncertain about the future, wondering if they chose the right path and will land a job. Adults in stable jobs and full-time parents often experience feelings of being stuck, frustrated, or unhappy; they think the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. Those who have lost their jobs or are retired may wonder what the future hold and if they will be able to support themselves. In our quest to "have it all" in life, we might be overwhelmed or stressed, but God's Word speaks a better truth about how we're meant to live. Pastor Leininger gives readers five key themes to focus on with these struggles and uncertainties, providing reassurance and guidance while reminding us all that God does have a plan for our lives

Enjoying the Bible: Literary Approaches to Loving the Scriptures
$22.99
Many Christians view the Bible as an instruction manual. While the Bible does provide instruction, it can also captivate, comfort, delight, shock, and inspire. In short, it elicits emotion--just like poetry. By learning to read and love poetry, says literature professor Matthew Mullins, readers can increase their understanding of the biblical text and learn to love God's Word more. Each chapter includes exercises and questions designed to help readers put the book's principles and practices into action.

Faith in the Shadow of a Pandemic
$9.99
In our lifetime, we have never experienced a disaster with effects as widespread as the COVID-19 pandemic. The terrorist attacks of 9/11 certainly caused upheaval, but they didn't force people to shelter at home or cause churches to stop meeting. As we slowly work back to our normal lives - or a new normal - we must recognize this will not be the last major disaster we will ever have to face. But what does that mean for the Church, especially the local congregation? Faith in the Shadow of a Pandemic aims to provide comfort, hope, and guidance for church members experiencing the massive upheavals created by huge disasters - such as earthquakes, tornadoes, war, or even another pandemic - without the ability to come together around Word and Sacrament in church. Faith in the Shadow of a Pandemic will reassure individual church members who suddenly find themselves in harrowing times without access to worship in their local congregation.

Faith to Follow: The Journey of Becoming a Pastor's Wife

Faith to Follow: The Journey of Becoming a Pastor's Wife
$19.95

While her husband pursued a four-year Master of Divinity degree from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Kate Meadows wondered how she fit into the process of her husband becoming a pastor. In the Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod, only men can be ordained as pastors. The men who come to the seminary have a well paved road ahead of them. The women who come with those men don't. As women, we ask ourselves, "Who am I in this process?" and "Where do I fit?"

Kate never envisioned herself as a pastor's wife; in fact, she wasn't sure she wanted to be one. Yet, if God was leading her husband into the ministry, who was she to say "No?"

And what was it about that term "pastor's wife," that made her uneasy, anyway? What did it even mean to be a pastor's wife in the modern day?

At the seminary, Kate started talking to other women who had faithfully followed their husbands on the path to ministry. Through a series of more than fifty interviews, she learned that the journey of becoming a pastor's wife is rich with questions, discovery, and joy.

Faith to Follow chronicles the woman's experience of preparing to become a pastor's wife. It also may be a springboard for dialogue within churches across America, about the importance of encouraging and cultivating future church leaders and raising up strong families in the Christian faith.

Has American Christianity Failed?
$16.99
American Christianity has many strengths. It is earnest, takes the Bible seriously, and waits eagerly for the Lord Jesus to return. It strives to make the world a better place. But, in the end, American Christianity and its teaching fall short of Scripture. It dilutes the Lords commandments and confuses the Lords promises, and the result is that churches are full of confusion and Christians dont receive the full comfort that Jesus intends for His people.
