A Year in the New Testament: Meditations for Each Day of the Church Year
$30.99

A Year in the New Testament will guide you through reading most of the New Testament in the course of a year, and do it in a way that is encouraging and manageable, taking the readers experiences of daily life into the Bible. The daily devotions follow the seasonal movements of the Church Year in a broad, general fashion, but not in the more focused and specific way that one expects for the lessons and Holy Gospel appointed for particular Sundays and festivals of the Church Year, allowing Scripture to interpret itself in its own literary contexts, and thereby also to inform and shape Christian prayer and devotion over the course of time.

An overview of the Church Year, Sundays and Seasons, and The Liturgical Calendar is included.

Each day contains a Psalmody, Additional Psalm, an Old Testament Reading, a New Testament Reading, Prayer of the Day, and a Meditation.

There is not greater source of comfort, hope, help, and counsel than the Word of God itself. Nothing serves the Christian faith more than diligently and daily reading and searching the Holy Scriptures.

Continue: Poems and Prayers of Hope
$9.99
Continue . . . As Christians, we continue through hardships, through difficulties, through points where it felt like there was no hope. And, we continue through the ordinary, too: through the morning routines, through the rush-hour traffic, through Sunday services, through late-night prayers. This is poetry for the ordinary. For day-to-day faith. In Continue: Poems and Prayers of Hope, author Tanner Olson examines what it means to be ordinary in the faith. To take one step forward in simple ways: going to the grocery store, making dinner, watching TV. Being Christian doesn't always mean giant leaps and brave adventures. Sometimes, it just means being an ordinary person, continuing in your ordinary day.

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

0
Cruciform Way: A Steady Cadence of Christ for Life, Volume 1
$19.99

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

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!"

Day by Day: 365 Devotional Readings with Martin Luther
$17.99

"God gives faith not so that it can deal with insignificant things, but [so that it can deal with] things the whole world cannot handle, such as death, sin, world, and devil."

-Martin Luther


A prolific author, renowned preacher, respected professor, and key figure in the Reformation, Martin Luther is still, after five hundred years, one of the most influential people in history. Above all, he worked to make the Bible accessible to everyone. His writings continue to guide and encourage Christians because he points us to Jesus and His Gospel.


These daily devotions are drawn from the many volumes in the American Edition of Luther's Works, including volumes that are newly translated into English, thus providing material from Luther never before available to English-speaking readers.


A daily dose of Luther is good for the soul!

The Psalms are an important part of Christianity and understanding the Bible. They have been used for years as a core to the Bible and can even stand as a summary of Scripture and all that it offers.

Fount of Heaven: Prayers of the Early Church
$24.99

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

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.
