And She Was a Christian: Why Do Believers Commit Suicide?
$25.99
Suicide has been a historically difficult and taboo topic for the church. Christians, perhaps even more so than nonbelievers, are often appalled or distressed by this horrific act and can struggle to understand it. This is especially true when it is a fellow believer who takes his or her own life.

And She Was a Christian provides answers straight from God's Word, with a strong emphasis on the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Ideal for Christian counselors or anyone who has been affected by suicide, this book offers helpful guidance and comfort when dealing with this disturbing reality.

    Helping Without Hurting in Church Benevolence: A Practical Guide to Walking with Low-Income People
    $14.99

    When a low-income person asks your church for help, what do you do next?

    God is extraordinarily generous, and our churches should be, too. Because poverty is complex, however, helping low-income people often requires going beyond meeting their material needs to holistically addressing the roots of their poverty.

    But on a practical level, how do you move forward in walking with someone who approaches your church for financial help?

    From the authors of When Helping Hurts comes Helping Without Hurting in Church Benevolence, a guidebook for church staff, deacons, or volunteers who work with low-income people.

    Short and to the point, this tool provides foundational principles for poverty alleviation and then addresses practical matters, like:

  • How to structure and focus your benevolence work
  • How to respond to immediate needs while pursuing long-term solutions
  • How to mobilize your church to walk with low-income people

  • With practical stories, forms, and tools for churches to use, Helping Without Hurting in Church Benevolence is an all-in-one guide for church leaders and laypeople who want to help the poor in ways that lead to lasting change.

    Making Christian Counseling More Christ Centered
    $19.95

    Many Christian counselors and pastors want to bring Christ's Gospel and forgiveness into their soul care, but don't know how. Luther's very Christ-centered theology, based in his desire for care of souls, can provide us with that foundation. Various techniques flowing from that foundation are shared.

    "Martin Luther formulated his proclamation of the message of Scripture for his contemporaries between the poles of God's voice in the pages of the Bible and the needs and afflictions of his hearers and readers. Marrs brings twenty-first century readers into that exchange and demonstrates how Luther's insights into the gospel of Jesus Christ help bring healing and comfort to those struggling with guilt, shame, fear, loneliness, and other spiritual afflictions in our day. This volume provides those who are engaged in conversation with the troubled and distressed rich resources for fostering peace and joy in the midst of such trouble and distress."

    Robert Kolb, PhD, professor of systematic theology emeritus, Concordia Seminary, Saint Louis USA

    "If all good theology is pastoral in its orientation, then this groundbreaking, practical, biblical study is well worth careful consideration by any pastor or Christian counsellor. In it Marrs engages in a conversation with the teaching of Luther as a Christ-centered pastoral theologian and the practical insights of psychologists on the personal care of their clients, with a special emphasis on Luther's insistence on the need to distinguish between law and gospel in the proper application of God's gracious word with the delivery of soul care to God's people."

    $17.95
    A look at the gulf that separates the deaf minority from the hearing world, this book sheds light on the mistreatment of the deaf community by a hearing establishment that resists understanding and awareness. Critically acclaimed as a breakthrough when it was first published in 1992, this new edition includes information on the science and ethics of childhood cochlear implants. An indictment of the ways in which experts in the scientific, medical, and educational establishment purport to serve the deaf, this bookdescribes how they, in fact, do them great harm."

    Solution-Focused Pastoral Counseling: An Effective Short-Term Approach for Getting People Back on Track (Special)
    $24.99

    An original, effective, and time-saving approach that benefits pastors overtaxed by counseling demands--fully updated and expanded.

    Professional counselor and pastor Dr. Charles Allen Kollar found that counseling does not need not be long-term or depend on psychological manipulation to produce dramatic results. In most cases, the solution lies with the counselees themselves.

    Using the tested methods found in Solution-Focused Pastoral Counseling, pastors, apart from counselors, will be well equipped to:

  • help their counselees discover a solution and put it in motion speedily and productively
  • Institute healthy change by helping the counselee see and work on the solution with God's activity already present in his/her life
  • create solutions with--not for--the counselee
  • Solution-Focused Pastoral Counseling does not require the counselor to be a highly trained psychological expert. It requires biblically based sensitivity and common sense. Yet this approach also recognizes its limitations and understands that there are situations in which other professional and/or medical help is required.

    This book reveals the possibility of life without the problem through an understanding of what is different when the problem does not occur or is less intrusive.

    The Problem of Suffering: A Fathers Hope
    $17.99

    The Problem of Suffering is a superb resource to share and to use with anyone suffering any form of loss. It is honest, straightforward, expressive, evocative of much reflection and insight, and linked closely to the suffering Savior. Author Gregory Schulz speaks as a Christian father, sharing the very personal, difficult struggle of dealing with years of pain, suffering, and questions. As he shares his struggle, he bares his soul with a jarring honesty seldom heard in the church. His protest is against "God's abusive actions," and it rings true to anyone who's suffering of body or spirit.

    Also included is an epilogue of prayers and poems written by sufferers.

    From the Foreword

    Warning: After you've read this book you'll never be the same again. You will be challenged by its intellectual depth, encouraged by its spiritual consolation, and blown away by its honesty. Like a roller-coaster, it will lift you to dizzying heights of insight, plunge you down into the deepest imaginable human pain, then lift you out again into hope.


    Pain and suffering come in different sizes and intensities for different people, but they come inevitably to us all. A lot of ink has been spilled over the centuries on the so-called "problem of evil," but there's not much help in that. Anyone who has personally experienced the mind-numbing and gut-wrenching impact of suffering, pain, or loss can tell you the last thing anyone needs in the midst of that mess is intellectual reflection and explanation. What you need is the honest truth. And such honesty is rarely pleasant.
