Street Smarts : Using Questions To Answer Christianity’s Toughest Challenge$22.99Read more
Street Smarts by Gregory Koukl helps Christians better engage in productive conversations with those who challenge their convictions on a variety of issues. A follow-up to Koukl’s best-selling Tactics, this book focuses on revealing the fundamental flaws in common, current challenges to Christian beliefs and values. It then provides individual strategies to exploit those shortcomings by offering model questions and sample dialogues to help guide believers in genial, yet persuasive, conversations.
Koukl begins by explaining the important difference in evangelism between a harvest approach (reaping) and a gardening approach (sowing). He then provides an overview of the tactical game plan he uses to have fruitful “gardening” conversations with those who are not yet Christians. Subsequent chapters tackle specific areas of challenge that Christians frequently face in discussions “on the street,” as it were–in those conversations with friends, family, or critics that believers often avoid because they feel out of their element, vulnerable, or exposed.
With the specific challenges he addresses, Koukl shows precisely how and why each falters. instructing the reader in a lucid, well-organized, and easy-to-follow fashion. He then provides a specific set of questions–the same questions Koukl uses in his own encounters–that are embedded in sample mini-dialogues the Christian can use to exploit those flaws in an amicable, yet incisive, way.
Some questions are used to get the discussion moving forward in a disarming fashion. Others are aimed more directly at the flaws or liabilities of the typical challenges people raise. Questions encourage challengers to think more carefully about their objections or consider problems with their own views that they may not have considered or even have been aware of.
Street Smarts equips Christians to handle tough challenges in a straightforward and user-friendly way. It provides the practical tools they need to keep them in the driver’s seat of otherwise difficult and discomfiting conversations. It enables them to stand up for Christ in a safe, genial, yet effective way.

Bulwarks Of Unbelief$32.99Read more
How modernity creates atheists–and what the church must do about it.
Millions of people in the West identify as atheists. Christians often respond to this reality with proofs of God’s existence, as though rational arguments for atheism were the root cause of unbelief. In Bulwarks of Unbelief, Joseph Minich argues that a felt absence of God, as experienced by the modern individual, offers a better explanation for the rise in atheism. Recent technological and cultural shifts in the modern West have produced a perceived challenge to God’s existence. As modern technoculture reshapes our awareness of reality and belief in the invisible, it in turn amplifies God’s apparent silence. In this new context, atheism is a natural result. And absent of meaning from without, we have turned within.
Christians cannot escape this aspect of modern life. Minich argues that we must consciously and actively return to reality. If we reattune ourselves to God’s story, reintegrate the whole person, and reinhabit the world, faith can thrive in this age of unbelief.

How To Know God Exists$17.99Read more
Three questions are etched into everyone’s subconscious: Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Josh McDowell and Thomas Williams team up to show why nothing short of God answers these questions. But the problem is that in today’s secularized culture, God has largely been banished.
How to Know God Exists explores in depth solid reasons for believing in God and restoring him to his rightful place in our lives. Josh McDowell is widely known for his powerful defenses of God based on historical and biblical evidences. In this book he and Thomas take a new direction and present often-unexplored but formidable evidences based on sheer reason, observable reality, and solid science. They show that belief in God is not the blind, unthinking, and intellectually indefensible fancy today’s secularism makes it out to be.
How to Know God Exists will:
*Offer rational defenses for the existence of God, truth, morality, meaning, and reason
*Open vistas of beauty and joy denied to readers by the sterility of secularism
*Use reason, logic, experience, and common sense to show that God offers the truth required to make sense of reality and bring meaning and joy to life
By reason and common sense, How to Know God Exists shows that meaning itself is rooted in the existence of God.
Air We Breathe$16.99Read more
Is Christianity history? Or is Christian history the deepest explanation of the modern world?
Today in the west, many consider the church to be dead or dying. Christianity is seen as outdated, bigoted and responsible for many of society’s problems. This leaves many believers embarrassed about their faith and many outsiders wary of religion. But what if the Christian message is not the enemy of our modern Western values, but the very thing that makes sense of them?
In this fascinating book, Glen Scrivener takes readers on a journey to discover how the teachings of Jesus not only turned the ancient world upside down, but continue to underpin the way we think of life, worth, and meaning. Far from being a relic from the past, the distinctive ideas of Christianity, such as freedom, kindness, progress and equality, are a crucial part of the air that we breathe. As author Glen Scrivener says in his introduction: “The extraordinary impact of Christianity is seen in the fact that we don’t notice it.
This is a book for both believers and sceptics–giving Christians confidence to be open about their faith and showing non-Christians the ways in which the message of Jesus makes sense of their most cherished beliefs. Whoever you are, you’ll gain a deeper appreciation for the values you hold dear as you discover the power and profundity of Jesus and his revolution.
Never Ashamed : Stories Of Sharing Faith With Scoffers And Skeptics$14.99Read more
Most books on evangelism deal primarily with different approaches to sharing the good news. From street ministry to personal witnessing, books abound on how to present the gospel in a variety of ways and situations.
But Never Ashamed isn’t a book about how. Rather, it’s a book about why. Author Avi Snyder explains:
*Why we mustn’t be ashamed of sharing the good news in an open and direct fashion.
*Why believers find it difficult to share the good news of salvation, despite the variety of fruit that always abounds.
*Why non-believers often choose to walk away from the claims of the Messiah, even when they know or at least suspect in their hearts that His claims are true.
*Why the early church felt compelled to proclaim His message, regardless of the risks and costs.
More than this, however, Never Ashamed is a book of stories:
*The man who told Avi he wouldn’t stop him from jumping out a window.
*The Marxist lady trying to figure him out who eventually concluded he was a provocateur
*The woman who prayed for God to give her compassion like Him and wept when she received it
*The Soviet guard who helped Avi’s team pass out literature
These and many more encounters that Avi shares will make you laugh, cry, and be filled with joy at the winsome ways in which he brings people to Jesus.
Practical Religion : Essential Biblical Truths For Daily Christian Living$24.99Read more
Practical Religion, by J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), was first published in 1878 and is renowned as a theological and apologetic Christian “classic”-esteemed for its clear, profound and penetrating narrative on the practice of genuine Christian living. Within its pages, Ryle masterfully unfolds practical biblical truths in a series of treatises, or “papers” as he calls them, each written to address a critical aspect of where personal faith in Christ and the practice of that faith in holy living unite and are essential for Christian growth and effective discipleship.
Ryle exposes hypocrisy and nominalism in religion, or “Churchianity” as he calls it, which was as systemic in his day as it is today. His poignant narrative appeals to the evangelical Church as well as to individuals who profess to be Christians-a call to self-examination in all things, and a return to sound Biblical truths seriously and practically applied in every aspect of life.
Ryle’s powerful, engaging style penetrates the heart and challenges the mind of its readers and is not for the faint of heart. Ryle’s design is to stir the hearts and minds of those who genuinely and humbly seek a deeper abiding, surrendered life in Christ. No wonder his equally renowned contemporary English minister, Charles Spurgeon, considered Ryle “An evangelical champion. One of the bravest and best of men.” J.I. Packer calls Practical Religion, “The manual for the practice of Christianity.”
J. C. (John Charles) Ryle was the first Bishop of Liverpool, England, and one of the most influential evangelical ministers and writers of the nineteenth century. He was renowned for his rare ability to bring the riches of Biblical truth, plainly and powerfully, to the hearts of his hearers and readers.
Practical Religion will enrich the believer’s walk with Christ and provide the Church with much needed insight for preaching and living genuine Christianity, now and in every generation!

Gathering Storm : Secularism, Culture, And The Church$28.99Add to cart
The president of Southern Seminary reveals how secularism has infiltrated every aspect of society and how Christians, equipped with the gospel of Jesus Christ, can meet it head on with hope, confidence, and steadfast conviction.
A storm is coming. Western civilization and the Christian church stand at a moment of great danger. The storm is a battle of ideas that will determine the future of Western civilization and the soul of the Christian church. The forces we must fight are ideologies, policies, and worldviews that are deeply established among intellectual elites, the political class, and our schools. More menacingly, these ideas have also invaded the Christian church.
From threats to religious liberty and redefinitions of marriage and family to attacks on the sacredness and dignity of human life, the perils faced by the West and the church are unprecedented. How should Christians respond to this challenge? The Gathering Storm provides the answer, addressing each dimension of culture and showing Christians how to give an answer for the hope that is within them and how to contend for the faith that was once and for all delivered to the saints.
Hell : A Guide$25.99Add to cart
From bestselling author Anthony DeStefano comes an exploration of what we know–and what we cannot know–about the most misunderstood and most controversial subject in Christianity.
C. S. Lewis imagined it as a grey, joyless city. The Italian poet, Dante Aligheri, wrote that it was a series of nine circles. And each one of us probably has our own vision of it. But what do we really know about hell? What does the Bible tell us about it, and what is speculation, myth, or even plain error?
Anthony DeStefano, the bestselling author of A Travel Guide to Heaven, takes us on an exploration of hell, the devil, demons, and evil itself. Written with the clarity and logic of C. S. Lewis and the vivid storytelling of John Bunyan and J. R. R. Tolkien, Hell: A Guide takes up questions such as:
*Is hell a place or a state of being?
*What does hell look like?
*What kind of suffering do people in hell experience?
*What are the devil and demons really like?
Rooted in solid, orthodox Christian scholarship, this one-of-a-kind book investigates everything there is to know about one of the most fascinating, yet often misunderstood, subjects of all time.
Case For Miracles$19.99Add to cart
New York Times bestselling author Lee Strobel trains his investigative sights on the hot-button question: is it really credible to believe God intervenes supernaturally in people’s lives today?
This provocative book starts with an unlikely interview in which America’s foremost skeptic builds a seemingly persuasive case against the miraculous. But then Strobel travels the country to quiz scholars to see whether they can offer solid answers to atheist objections. Along the way, he encounters astounding accounts of healings and other phenomena that simply cannot be explained away by naturalistic causes. The book features the results of exclusive new scientific polling that shows miracle accounts are much more common than people think.
What’s more, Strobel delves into the most controversial question of all: what about miracles that don’t happen? If God can intervene in the world, why doesn’t he do it more often to relieve suffering? Many American Christians are embarrassed by the supernatural, not wanting to look odd or extreme to their neighbors. Yet, The Case for Miracles shows not only that the miraculous is possible, but that God still does intervene in our world in awe-inspiring ways. Here’s a unique book that examines all sides of this issue and comes away with a passionate defense for God’s divine action in lives today.
Also available: The Case for Miracles Spanish edition, kids’ edition, and student edition.
God Who Is There$18.00Add to cart
For over fifty years The God Who Is There has been a landmark work that has changed the way the church sees the world. Francis Schaeffer’s first book presents a wide-ranging analysis of the intellectual and cultural climate of the second half of the twentieth century, from philosophy to art to liberal theology. Arguing that Christians must constantly engage the questions being asked by their own–and the next–generation, he envisions an apologetics and spirituality both grounded in absolute truth and engaging the whole of reality. “If we are unexcited Christians, we should go back and see what is wrong,” Schaeffer writes. “We are surrounded by a generation that can find ‘no one home’ in the universe. . . . In contrast to this, as a Christian I know who I am; and I know the personal God who is there.” In every age, this God continues to provide the anchor of truth and the power of love to meet the world’s deepest problems. Named by Christianity Today as one of the “Top 50 Books That Have Shaped Evangelicals” (October 2006), this redesigned classic is now available as part of the IVP Signature Collection.
Undeniable Evidence : 10 Of The Top Scientific Facts In The Bible$16.99Read more
Even though the Bible wasn’t written as a scientific book, it contains amazing scientific facts that were penned thousands of years before man discovered them-facts regarding the earth being round, its free float in space, laws of quarantine, the existence of the dinosaur, and many others.
Although Christians don’t need convincing that the Bible is the Word of God (because they have met the Author), such gems in Scripture tend to warm the heart and solidify our faith.
While this publication is written primarily for Christians, unbelievers-who are perhaps interested in the Bible’s immutable promise of everlasting life-may like to examine the undeniable evidence, and consider the implications if its offer of Heaven and warning of Hell are indeed true.

Is Jesus History$16.99Read more
What can we really know for sure about the past? Can anything from ancient history be regarded as ‘fact’? In particular, how seriously can we take the historical sources for the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth? Did he really even live in first-century Galilee and Judaea, or is he a figure of legend?
In this timely book, historian Dr John Dickson unpacks how the field of history works, giving readers the tools to evaluate for themselves what we can confidently say about figures like the Emperor Tiberius, Alexander the Great, Pontius Pilate, and, of course, Jesus of Nazareth.
He presents the evidence, methods, and conclusions of mainstream scholars–both Christian and not–and asks some pertinent contemporary questions, without offering any pushy answers: If Jesus really did exist, what are we to make of his own claims and those of his followers, and what would any of it mean for us today?
Miracles Answer Book$14.99Add to cart
What’s the most spectacular miracle that’s ever occurred? How is a miracle different from a coincidence? What effect should miracles have in my life? If you wonder about divine phenomena-their veracity, importance, frequency, source-Christian apologist Lee Strobel has answers to satisfy your mind and your heart.
A former skeptic, Lee Strobel was convinced by the miracle of the resurrection that Jesus is the Son of God. This launched him on a two-year investigation of whether God is still performing miracles today. After witnessing multiple events in which God unmistakably intervened in people’s lives in dramatic and well-documented ways, he was a skeptic no more. Through his research he also explored the existence of fake miracles, how God may use dreams and prayer to perform miracles, and whether miracles matter anymore. These frequently asked questions uncovered some astonishingly profound answers.
Using the popular question-and-answer format, Lee will lead you on a voyage of discovery and discernment. You’ll emerge with a deeper faith and a more profound sense of the lengths that God will go to strengthen the faith of His people.

Case For Easter$3.99Add to cart
Did Jesus of Nazareth really rise from the dead?
Of the many world religions, only one claims that its founder returned from the grave. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the very cornerstone of Christianity.
But a dead man coming back to life? In our sophisticated age, when myth has given way to science, who can take such a claim seriously? Some argue that Jesus never died on the cross. Conflicting accounts make the empty tomb seem suspect.
How credible is the evidence for–and against–the resurrection? Focusing his award-winning skills as a legal journalist on history’s most compelling enigma, Lee Strobel retraces the startling findings that led him from atheism to belief. He examines:
*The Medical Evidence–Was Jesus’ death a sham and his resurrection a hoax?
*The Evidence of the Missing Body–Was Jesus’ body really absent from his tomb?
*The Evidence of Appearances–Was Jesus seen alive after his death on the cross?
Written in a hard-hitting journalistic style, The Case for Easter probes the core issues of the resurrection. Jesus Christ, risen from the dead: superstitious myth or life-changing reality? The evidence is in. The verdict is up to you.
Natures Case For God$11.99Read more
Can we know anything about God apart from the Bible?
Many Protestant Christians are suspicious of natural theology, which claims that we can learn about God through revelation outside the Bible. How can we know anything about God apart from Scripture? In Nature’s Case for God, distinguished theologian John Frame argues that Christians are not forbidden from seeking to learn about God from his creation. In fact, the Bible itself shows this to be possible.
In nine short and lucid chapters that include questions for discussion, Frame shows us what we can learn about God and how we relate to him from the world outside the Bible. If the heavens really do declare the glory of God, as the psalmist claims, it makes a huge difference for how we understand God and how we introduce him to those who don’t yet know Christ.

Giants : Legends And Lore Of Goliaths$18.99Add to cart
We must set aside the old ways of thinking, the ways that speak of myths as simple legends, and begin to consider the idea that the ancient world knew something we don’t: its own history.
Delves uniquely into the ancient accounts of giants from around the world
Aimed at bringing people into a deeper trust in the accuracy of the Word of God
Full-color artistry developed in an interactive format with folds and flaps, booklets, and more!
The word “myth” has come to mean “fiction” in our minds, and so we take Bible accounts, Aesop’s fables, and Greek myths and place them all into the same category. But what if some of the old legends are true? Rather than dismiss these marratives, perhaps we should investigate them. In this case, the world is full of giant legends that speak of heroes and wars. The ancient world agree on one central aspect of the Bible: early in the history of mankind, a race of violent, yet intelligent, giants walked the earth, were destroyed by the Flood, though some re-emerged later. Through historical records we reconstruct the pre-Flood (and post-Flood) worlds and see that the Bible can be trusted.

This book-written in an accessible, conversational style-uses the fictional journey of a young man named Zach to illustrate how the gospel provides a rock-solid foundation for life and offers an explanation for our existence, grace for our guilt, and meaning for our mortality.
