Bearing the Cross: Devotions on Albrecht Durers Small Passion
$17.99

Albrecht Dürer, 1471-1528, is said to be the greatest German artist of the Northern Renaissance. His works include woodcuts, engravings, sketches, and paintings of both oils and watercolors. Born into a Nuremburg family of goldsmiths, he learned the art of engraving at an early age.


Dürer's genius in printmaking forever changed the world of art. Up until this time woodcuts had been merely combinations of black and white. His innovative technique of cross hatching brought new shades of grays making a pallet of contrasts between light and dark. This greatly enhanced the woodcuts of his Small Passion giving visual depth, dimension, and drama to the biblical narratives.The Small Passion contains the largest number of scenes, but is known as "small" due to the 3x5 inch size of the intricate woodcuts.


Bearing the Cross combines the great artwork of Albrecht Dürer's Small Passion, gems of hymnody, and Holy Scripture into faith enriching devotional vignettes. The reader is escorted from Genesis to Revelation in a personal, intimate journey with Christ.

Foreword by Matthew Harrison.

    Cruciform Way: A Steady Cadence of Christ for Life, Volume 1
    $19.99
    VOLUME 1

    To be cruciform is to be cross-shaped. The cruciform way is the life born from and shaped by a faith lived in clear sight of Jesus Christ, the One who hung upon Calvary's cross for the magnificent rescue of a world of dreadful transgressors. A collection of weekly devotions examining various aspects of the Christian life, The Cruciform Way: A Steady Cadence of Christ for Life labors to stir the Spirit-enabled skill for receiving both joy and sorrow, leisure and struggle, all through the Gospel lens of Christ and the certainty of His victory and forgiveness.

    Endorsements:

    "This devotional is a gem: eloquent, humble, learned. There is a kind of soulcraft which comes through each of its readings, and I found them consistently nourishing, edifying, refreshing, and insightful. I hope and pray many others will be as encouraged and blessed as I am with these joyful grace-notes of wisdom and fidelity."

    -Timothy Goeglein, Vice President, Focus on the Family and Author of The Man in the Middle

    "The Cruciform Way is the most practical devotional available today. Pastor Thoma captures the issues and answers the questions that most Christians ponder while living their faith. His writing is engaging. He leaves us eager for each new reading as he enlightens with biblical insights that all will find absolutely invaluable."

    -Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, US Army (Ret), Former Commander of U.S. Army Special Forces & Founding Member of Delta Force

    "The way of the Lord is the way of the word, and one word in particular: the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ. The Cruciform Way is at times a blessed walk, other times a joyful dance, but it is always a rhythmic delight in this same Christ. Thoma sets before his readers a steady feast of richness that forges the heart with both the hammer of God's law and the sweet comfort of His merciful gospel as He leads us through the many courses of the Church Year. This is the way, The Cruciform Way. There is no other. And it is very good."

    -Rev. Dr. Edward A. Sikora, Pastor of Hope Lutheran Church, DeWitt, Michigan

    Cruciform Way: A Steady Cadence of Christ for Life, Volume 2
    $19.99
    VOLUME 2

    The Cruciform Way is far more than a brief devotional rendezvous. It digs deeper than that. It requires a little more contemplation of the "self," while at the same time promising to help steady you with the same divine muscle that has steadied believers throughout the history of Man. It does this remembering that life is short, but eternity is long-timeless, in fact. And its ultimate goal: A Gospel that gives and emboldens a faith that will keep the heart and mind of the believer in Jesus Christ for and into this eternity.

    ENDORSEMENTS:

    "The Cruciform Way is a great source of encouragement for Christians today as they navigate the confusion of our culture, and Pastor Thoma does a great job with providing rich inspiration for his readers."CHARLIE KIRK, Founder and President of Turning Point USA

    "Another brilliant work by Reverend Thoma! Ours is a nation and world trying to push God into the margins. But God won't be pushed, and He reminds us of this through preachers like Reverend Thoma. Society's movement toward secularism is having disastrous results. It's leaving people confused and hopeless. Thankfully, Thoma is not afraid to be faithful. This devotional shows he's not afraid to stand toe-to-toe against the world's evil and give people the truth of God's Word. And he continues to do this with passion while so many of his clergy contemporaries have long since thrown in the towel and succumbed to the safety of politically correct 'wokeness.' In short, Reverend Thoma uses The Cruciform Way to come down from the pulpit, take the reader by the hand, and walk them back to the only One who gives real hope: Jesus Christ."SHERIFF (RET) DAVID CLARKE, Former Milwaukee County Sheriff and Author of Cop Under Fire: Moving Beyond Hashtags of Race, Crime & Politics for a Better America

    "Pastor Thoma never shies away from challenging his readers to dig more deeply into the Scriptures, and The Cruciform Way, his delightful devotional, is no exception. With his signature awareness and conversational style, his words become familiar to the reader as he moves from week to week bringing rich biblical theology to interface with the practical of 'life.' And his goal: to bring all of us closer to Jesus. Whether or not you have a trusted devotional resource, give The Cruciform Way a try. I highly recommend it."DANIELLE D'SOUZA GILL, Author of The Choice: The Abortion Divide in America

    "The Cruciform Way is a delightful book. Thoma's writing is excellent. He's a crafter of language, resulting in the devotions within being as far from spiritual fluff as they can get. Fitting squarely to the Word of God, and following the seasons of the Church Year, Thoma peers deeply into theological truth, and yet remains unfailing in his ability to relay these truths in a personal way. This alone leaves the reader pondering the things written long after visiting with them. This Scripture-drenched devotional is just what Christians need for facing the trials of this life faithfully-and courageously! I highly recommended it!"REVEREND PAUL CLARK, President of Lutherans for Life of Michigan and Pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Church, Fowler, Michigan

    Day by Day in Genesis: 365 Devotional Readings from Martin Luther
    $17.99

    The Book of Genesis traces the very beginning of not only human history, but also God's people and His plan to redeem humanity. In this narrative, we see glimpses of Christ-a promise in Genesis that is now fulfilled.

    Martin Luther spent the final ten years of his academic career lecturing on the Book of Genesis. He discussed every chapter and almost every verse, bringing out themes as varied as vocation, marriage, prayer, the nature of the Trinity, the work of the Holy Spirit, Law and Gospel, and the theology of the cross. Genesis, Luther said, "is made up almost entirely of illustrations of faith and unbelief, and of the fruits that faith and unbelief bear. It is an exceedingly evangelical book."

    Day by Day in Genesis presents 365 short devotional readings from Martin Luther's commentary on the Book of Genesis, addressing vocation, marriage, prayer, and the promise of Christ.

    Fount of Heaven: Prayers of the Early Church

    You are the fountain of life, light, and all grace and truth

    "Use this book as a daily guide in your walk with God and it will enrich you in a multitude of ways." --Michael A G Haykin

    The hearts of the first Christians beat with praise for Christ. The strength of their devotion is remarkable, considering the times of uncertainty and persecution in which they lived. Despite all of this, the early church flourished, sustained by the God to whom they prayed.

    Christians today have a lot to learn from the devotional life of the early church. In Fount of Heaven, a collection of carefully selected prayers from the first six centuries of the church, we can pray with our spiritual forefathers. Prayers from luminaries such as Clement of Rome, Irenaeus, and Augustine are arranged by theme to reveal the right prayer for the moment. The prayers have been slightly updated to read more easily, but they retain their joy and mystery. As we turn to the prayers of the first Christians, we can return to the foundations of our own faith.

    Handbook of Consolations
    $20.00
    Johann Gerhard (1582-1637) was one of the leading dogmatic theologians of his time and was the authoritative voice of seventeenth-century Lutheran Orthodoxy. Yet, he also published numerous devotional works and meditations that were meant to be used in the daily lives of ordinary believers. The Handbook of Consolations sought to provide comfort and encouragement not only to those approaching death, but also to those who provided care for the sick and dying. Gerhard himself was no stranger to sickness and death, having lost his infant son and young wife, and faced numerous life-threatening illnesses throughout his life. In this pastoral work, which is the first complete English translation based on Gerhard's original Latin to be published since the seventeenth century, Gerhard brings together his extensive understanding of Scripture, theology, and church history in a practical and easy-to-understand manual that is as relevant and meaningful in the twenty-first century as it was in Gerhard's day.

    Jesus Cover to Cover: Daily Devotions Highlighting Jesus Christ from Genesis to Malachi
    $14.99

    "The connection between Old and New Testaments of Holy Scripture is intriguing. Some see no obvious connection and thus miss the spiritual strength that comes to those who experience its discovery. Old Testament prophecy of a Messiah and New Testament fulfilment of that prophecy in the person of Jesus are obviously connected in certain scriptural references but more nearly camouflaged in many others. In his book, Jesus Cover to Cover, Phil Rigdon provides interesting observations about more frequent yet often overlooked revelations of Jesus in Old Testament narrative. You'll appreciate Phil's Spirit-led insights." --Rev. Dr. Gerald B. Kieschnick, President Emeritus, The Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod

    "Delightfully didactic, these daily devotions traverse the Old Testament and direct you to Jesus. You won't regret adding this to your devotional life!" --Rev. Michael W. Meyer, Manager, Disaster Response Office of National Mission, The Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod

    "Pastor Rigdon has a unique way of bringing subtle truths and deeper contexts of scripture to light in a way that is easy to read and understand. Each passage goes deeper into how God has had a plan that has included Jesus' work from the beginning, and how He has woven a beautiful tapestry to help us understand His love for us, preparing us for eternity in heaven with Him. Thank you for the beautiful reminders of His love!" --Nancy Eisenmann, Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Mental Health Therapist at Peace Counseling Group

    "This book is like a walk down the Emmaus Road, where our Lord opened the eyes of his disciples to see that He is the fullness and fulfilment of the Scriptures of Israel. Each devotion looks through the prism of Christ and His work to see the OT stories in a new light. Beginning in Genesis, we see the Good News of the Messiah foreshadowed. These devotions will guide you to and through the rich treasures of the OT in a fresh, Gospel-centered way." --Rev. Chad Bird
