Living In Gods True Story$14.99Read more
We all need a reminder of the true story at the heart of the gospel.
In the face of false teachers and skeptics, Peter wrote his second epistle to remind his readers of God’s true story. They needed to be reoriented to the truth of their identity and status in Christ. Christians continue to experience similar challenges to our spiritual foundations today.
In Living in God’s True Story: 2 Peter, Donald L. Morcom shows that remembering the truth is the core theme of Peter’s second letter. In the midst of false alternatives, he encourages believers to live faithful lives that demonstrate love and wisdom. Though it may be short, 2 Peter is an impactful letter that explains how we can order our lives in accordance with God’s true story.
Transformed In Christ$14.99Read more
Is your faith countercultural?
When he wrote his first epistle to the church in Corinth, Paul wanted to address two cultural issues that the Christians in the city were wrestling with: prosperity and entertainment. He urged the young believers struggling in the midst of Graeco–Roman society to live lives shaped by Christ. Believers today are not immune to these same worldly temptations the Corinthian church was facing.
In Transformed in Christ: 1 Corinthians, Ron Elsdon and William Olhausen show us how Paul uses the cross to define the distinctive patterns of life and behavior which Christians are called. The transformation that comes from cross–shaped wisdom is not a singular moment in a believer’s life, but a continual process of refinement. The result is a living, countercultural faith marked by discernment, wisdom, and love.

Get wisdom, get insight (Prov 4:5)
The book of Proverbs is an invitation to get wisdom. But wisdom isn’t so easily defined or found. Without discernment, we can be swayed by teachers or sayings that sound wise, but true biblical wisdom is rooted in the fear of the Lord.
In Walking with God’s Wisdom, Benjamin T. Quinn calls us to hear and obey God’s wisdom found in Proverbs. These ancient words reveal a way of life exemplified in Jesus Christ. Quinn shows how even the most ordinary aspects of life are packed with importance for wise living before God.
Freed To Be Gods Family$14.99Read more
Family provides community, identity, and shared values.
In the book of Exodus, God frees Israel from slavery to Egypt. But they are not left as orphans. Rather, the redeemed are made into a new family–God’s family. In Freed to be God’s Family, Mark R. Glanville argues that the central motif of Exodus is community. God wants a healthy, dynamic relationship with the redeemed. As family members, Israel is called to learn God’s ways and reflect God’s character to the world.
Freed to be God’s Family is a concise and accessible guide to the message and themes of Exodus. Each chapter keeps the big picture central and provides probing questions for reflection and discussion.
Invited To Know God$12.99Read more
“Goodness like a fetter.”
The hymn “Come Thou Fount” reminds us that God’s laws were created to draw us closer to him. But reading the law is intimidating. Deuteronomy is a long and ancient book full of speeches and laws for a wandering people on the cusp of entering a land filled with hostile nations. What could Deuteronomy have to say for modern readers who face vastly different issues?
Invited to Know God shows that Deuteronomy is simply about knowing God. The book is a divine portal, drawing people into the ancient presence of God. To understand God better, we need to understand Deuteronomy better. Rather than being a dusty book of ancient laws, Deuteronomy calls those who love God to know Him better, choose the path to life, and flourish under His loving wisdom and guidance.
God’s laws bind our wandering hearts to him.
Revealing The Heart Of Prayer$12.99Read more
When reading the Gospel of Luke, it’s easy to get swept up into the story of the incarnation and forgot to focus on other themes. But prayer was central in Jesus’ life and in his relationship with the Father, and it should be central in our lives as well. In Revealing the Heart of Prayer, Craig G. Bartholomew unpacks this biblical book with a fresh perspective–focusing on Jesus and his example for how we should pray.
