Aelred of Rievaulx: Spiritual Friendship

Aelred of Rievaulx: Spiritual Friendship
$19.95
Spiritual Friendship is today the best known and perhaps most influential of the thirteen surviving works of Aelred, abbot of the great English Cistercian abbey of Rievaulx from 1147-1167. During his abbacy he built Rievaulx into a place of spiritual welcome and physical prosperity, desiring to make it "a mother of mercy" to those in need. In a three-book Ciceronian dialogue Aelred defines human friendship as sacramental, beginning in creation, as God sought to place his own love of society in all his creatures, linking friends to Christ in this life and culminating in friendship with God in beatitude. This fresh new translation makes the work crisply readable, allowing the intellectual and Christian insight of this great Cistercian teacher and writer to speak clearly to today's seekers of love, wisdom, and truth.

Afraid: Demon Possession and Spiritual Warfare in America

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.

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.

Broken: Seven Christian Rules about Christian Rules That Every Christian Ought to Break
$17.99
There are two kinds of spirituality in the world. One is wrong and one is right. One is false and one is true. This book examines seven of the most common spiritual traditions and how these man-made traditions use speculation, mysticism, and moralism to break Christianity. 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.

Enjoying the Bible: Literary Approaches to Loving the Scriptures

Christianity Today 2022 Book Award of Merit (Beautiful Orthodoxy)



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.

Ethics Beyond Rules: How Christ's Call to Love Informs Our Moral Choices

Ethics Beyond Rules: How Christ's Call to Love Informs Our Moral Choices
$26.99

An introduction to ethics that will help Christians rediscover a moral reasoning rooted in Scripture and navigate the ethical crises of our time.

How should Christians live? How should we interact with one another? Why do we think the way we do about right and wrong? How should we approach today's complex moral questions? Keith Stanglin realigns our ethical thinking around the central question: What does real love require? applying it to our ethical reasoning on many of the social issues present in today's culture:

  • abortion
  • sexual ethics
  • consumerism
  • technology
  • race
  • and politics
  • Moral evaluation must be based on more than our subjective feelings or the received wisdom or majority opinion of our community. But thinking objectively and reasonably about our ethical commitments is a process that's rarely taught in contemporary education or even in churches.

    Ethics Beyond Rules is a clear and accessible introduction for thoughtful Christians who want to lead moral lives--who want to define their moral code by firm biblical standards while acknowledging the complex nature of the issues at hand. Stanglin's love-based framework for moral decision-making engages Scripture and the historic Christian faith, giving Christians the tools to clear-mindedly consider the ethical problems of today and the foundation to confront new issues in the years to come.

    Ethics of Sex: From Taboo to Delight

    Christian beliefs about biblical manhood and womanhood, sex, and marriage have always and will always be definitively countercultural. This gives the church on earth every reason to pipe up during discussions on topics of sexual ethics. When truth is left unmentioned or defended, everyone suffers all the more.

    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.

    Gastronomic Vade Mecum: A Christian Field Guide to Eating, Drinking, and Being Merry Now and Forever
    $22.95

    Vade-mecums are guide books you carry with you. They have been around forever and are common in Europe for all sorts of things. The Latin term literally means "go with me". Here, Dr. Montgomery invites you to go with him as he explores the literature of food and develops a theology of gastronomy. Along with being a theologian and philosopher, an attorney, a barrister, a French advocate, a teacher, a husband and many other things, Dr. Montgomery is a lover of fine dining and formally embraces its craft with care.

    In the age of the microwave, where food is either fast or frozen and almost always pre-prepared, he wants to introduce us to the glories of fine dining, where we can take joy in all our Father has provided to us beyond the simple requirements of sustenance. With Dr. Montgomery as your guide, you will meet great chefs, and travel across time and space with food as the focus, enjoying the views, flavors and smells (and recipes!) Everything Dr. Montgomery explores takes place in light of faith in a God who is now one of us, who made all the senses, loves variety, knows hospitality, and will culminate all of history in the best of wedding feasts to which every good meal points and of which every great meal participates.

    Society has much to say about the value of human life, especially when it comes to topics such as abortion, cloning, and the government's role in such decisions. This voice tends to devalue human life. But the ultimate answer to all such issues comes from God's Word, in which humanity is given great dignity and worth, and embraced by God's grace and love.

    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.
