2. Grace Works!: (And Ways We Think It Doesn’t)

by Dou­glas Bond

Price: $12.99
Page Count: 304
Paper­back
Sam­ple Chapter
Table of Contents

Sum­mary: When the church down­plays the gospel, it breeds its own assas­sins: moral­ists who yawn at the notion of free grace in Christ alone and rebels who can’t get out of phar­i­saical churches fast enough. Sound­ing the alarm, Dou­glas Bond cel­e­brates the amaz­ing, effec­tive power of grace while show­ing us how to iden­tify destruc­tive “law-creep” in our churches and lives.

 

3. Judges & Ruth: There Is a Redeemer

by Sarah Ivill

Price: $12.99
Page Count: 336
Series: Tapes­try
Paper­back
Sam­ple Chapter
Table of Contents

Sum­mary: In its tales of gore, rebel­lion, sex­ual escapades, and fleet­ing vic­tory, Judges is one of the books of the Bible in which we most see our need for a Sav­ior and in which God’s grace shines most brightly. Mean­while, the book of Ruth beau­ti­fully reminds us that God has not for­got­ten his promises to Abra­ham. His plan of redemp­tion is dis­played in this book through the lives of hurt­ing women who cling to his covenan­tal lovingkindness.

 

4. From Age to Age: The Unfold­ing of Bib­li­cal Eschatology

by Keith A. Mathison

Price: $29.99
Page Count: 832
Sam­ple Chapter
Table of Contents
Now a paper­back book - price decreased by 25% from $39.99 down to $29.99.

Sum­mary: Read­ers will only under­stand a book’s final chap­ter if they have under­stood all that came before it. Like­wise, “in order to under­stand bib­li­cal escha­tol­ogy,” writes Keith Math­i­son, “we must under­stand the entire Bible.”

From Age to Age looks not only at the ful­fill­ment of God’s pur­poses at the end of his­tory, but also at the stages along the way. The mil­len­nium and sec­ond com­ing of Christ are escha­to­log­i­cally important—but Christ’s first com­ing was the begin­ning of the end. Deftly work­ing through each book of the Bible, Math­i­son traces God’s prepa­ra­tions through­out redemp­tive his­tory, which have laid every­thing in place for the last day.

Recap of New Releases from April and May

1. The Heart Is the Tar­get: Preach­ing Prac­ti­cal Appli­ca­tion from Every Text

by Mur­ray Capill

Price: $16.99
Page Count: 272
Paper­back
Sam­ple Chapter
Table of Contents
Sum­mary: God’s Word is pow­er­ful, and when preached clearly and applied per­ti­nently it can change lives. Yet preach­ing does not always have this impact; preach­ers con­cerned merely with teach­ing infor­ma­tion can leave con­gre­ga­tions unmoved, and those who sac­ri­fice sub­stance for rel­e­vance skimp on the power of the text. To truly change those who hear it, preach­ing must blend bib­li­cal faith­ful­ness and insight­ful appli­ca­tion together.
Mur­ray Capill helps all preach­ers who want to change lives to make their preach­ing wholly applic­a­ble, avoid­ing the pit­falls of tacked-on appli­ca­tion. He takes preach­ers through the liv­ing appli­ca­tion preach­ing process—moving the Word of God, via the life of the preacher, to the lives of the hearers—and gives them the tools to sys­tem­at­i­cally explore the appli­ca­tion poten­tial of any text. He him­self applies this teach­ing to any preacher’s sit­u­a­tion by show­ing how it works out in some of the spe­cific chal­lenges and sit­u­a­tions of preaching.

 

2. John Frame’s Selected Shorter Writ­ings, Vol­ume 1 by John M. Frame

Price: $16.99
Page Count: 336
Paper­back
Sam­ple Chapter
Table of Contents
Sum­mary: A col­lec­tion of short, pointed essays from John Frame stat­ing some of his teach­ings in the­o­log­i­cal method, apolo­get­ics, and the Chris­t­ian life. Includes an intro­duc­tion to his sig­na­ture con­cept of “perspectivalism.”

 

3. Self-Centered Spouse: Help for Chron­i­cally Bro­ken Marriages

by Brad Ham­brick

Price: $4.99
Page Count: 40
Series: Gospel for Real Life
Book­let
Sam­ple Chapter
Sum­mary: Any­one in a mar­riage knows that we are all self-centered spouses who are mar­ried to self-centered spouses. But when this all-too-common sin becomes severe and chronic, it results in a mar­i­tal envi­ron­ment of abuse or neglect—leaving the spouse on the receiv­ing end feel­ing trapped and hope­less. But how might this out­look change if we knew that Jesus addressed just such chron­i­cally bro­ken relationships?
Brad Ham­brick exam­ines Jesus’ teach­ings about rela­tion­ships to show us how we can turn the other cheek while keep­ing away from unhealthy and destruc­tive paths. He iden­ti­fies dif­fer­ent types of self-centered spouses to show us what we are deal­ing with, shares strate­gies for inter­act­ing with them, and points to evi­dences of gen­uine change to bring hope to any­one liv­ing with a chron­i­cally self-centered spouse.

 

4. Roman­tic Con­flict: Embrac­ing Desires That Bless Not Bruise

by Brad Ham­brick

Price: $4.99
Page Count: 32
Series: Gospel for Real Life
Book­let
Sam­ple Chapter
Sum­mary: Few mar­riages fall apart because the spouses have evil desires. But even the good desires of two well-meaning peo­ple do not always match up. Our lim­ited time and resources mean that ful­fill­ing one person’s desires often results in neglect­ing another’s, which can lead to con­flict and bit­ter­ness. So how do we enjoy the bless­ings of mar­riage with­out being con­sumed by our desire for those bless­ings we prefer?
Brad Ham­brick shows us that Jesus addressed this very issue—in his foun­da­tional call to be a dis­ci­ple, no less. In this plan for bib­li­cally deal­ing with mar­i­tal con­flict, he walks us through Jesus’ words and their impli­ca­tions, out­lines a typ­i­cal mar­i­tal con­flict, gives us strate­gies for how to “inter­rupt” our con­flicts with grace and love, and gives us fur­ther tips on how to reignite romance going forward.
