Servanthood as Worship: The Privilege of Life in a Local Church

Servanthood as Worship: The Privilege of Life in a Local Church

by Nate Palmer

Browse a Christian book website or bookstore and notice all there is for leaders and would-be leaders. There are studies of leaders, keys to leadership, and tips on becoming a leader.

Cruciform: Living the Cross-Shaped Life

Cruciform: Living the Cross-Shaped Life

by Jimmy Davis

Employing the symbols of the cruciform cathedral and the Celtic cross, the aim of this book is to cast a vision for the Cruciform Life, living as disciples of Jesus who are being shaped by the cross (gospel) into people and churches who share and show the cross (gospel) as they live the vertical life of loving God with all their head, heart, and hands and th… Read more…

Licensed to Kill: A Field Manual for Mortifying Sin

Licensed to Kill: A Field Manual for Mortifying Sin

by Brian Hedges

The Christian life is not a playground, but a battleground. One of the fiercest foes in this battle dwells within our own hearts: the enemy of indwelling sin. The Scriptures command us to “put sin to death.” This is what pastors and theologians of another generation called the “mortification” of sin. But how do we mortify sin? And what role does the … Read more…

Getting Back in the Race: The Cure for Backsliding

Getting Back in the Race: The Cure for Backsliding

by Joel R. Beeke

The Christian life is a race. Through the gospel, God summons us to sustained and persevering effort. He empowers his children by grace—free and undeserved blessing through Christ. But he does not carry them to heaven on flowery beds of ease. Faith is a living, athletic grace. God’s mercy motivates Christians and energizes them to press on and overcome g… Read more…

Education or Immitation?: Bible Interpretation for Dummies Like You and Me

Education or Immitation?: Bible Interpretation for Dummies Like You and Me

by Curt Allen

The earthly ministry of Jesus was all about rightly interpreting and applying God’s Word. We can do the same. No special training required. In fact, right interpretation of Scripture, followed by right application, is the primary way that Christians are to be like God. This is not an issue of education. It’s an issue of imitation. The example of Jesu… Read more…

Friends and Lovers: Cultivating Companionship and Intimacy in Marriage

Drawing from the wisdom of the Bible, especially the Book of Proverbs, Joel Beeke shows you how to grow closer to your spouse both emotionally a… Read more…

Killing Calvinism: How to Destroy a Perfectly Good Theology from the Inside

Killing Calvinism: How to Destroy a Perfectly Good Theology from the Inside

by Greg Dutcher

Something wonderful is happening in Western Evangelicalism. A resurgence of Calvinism is changing lives, transforming churches, and spreading the gospel. The books are great, the sermons are life-changing, the music is inspirational, and the conferences are astonishing. Will this continue or will we, who are part of it all, end up destroying it? That depen… Read more…

Christ in the Chaos: How the Gospel Changes Motherhood

Christ in the Chaos: How the Gospel Changes Motherhood

by Kimm Crandall

For far too long mothers have been beaten down by the law of “do better” and “try harder.” The burden of “getting it right” threatens to crush weary souls who desire to serve their families faithfully. Christ in the Chaos brings comfort to conflicted hearts that are starved of grace and longing for the freedom in Christ the Bible promises. In thi… Read more…

Does God Listen to Rap?: Christians and the World

Does God Listen to Rap?: Christians and the World's Most Controversial Music

by Curtis Allen

A lot of people think that if there is one style of music in the world that God hates, it has got to be rap. Some have even gone so far as to call rap, “An unclean thing before the Lord,” and to insist that anyone who listens to rap (whether it’s made by Christians or not) risks spiritual harm. Lots of other people love and accept rap as their preferre… Read more…
