When Your Way Isnt Working$27.99Add to cart
When you are worn-out, when you feel discouraged, when you think you don’t have what it takes, what is the one thing that Jesus wants you to never forget? When Your Way Isn’t Working equips you to discover authentic connection to God and others so you are free to live the life you long for.
In some of his final words to his closest friends, Jesus didn’t suggest a five-year plan for success or a checklist of things to do. Instead, he offered a metaphor about what the good life really looks like: I am the vine. You are the branches. Abide in me. In other words, No matter what happens next, the most important thing is to stay connected to me.
In When Your Way Isn’t Working, pastor and bestselling author Kyle Idleman offers a unique exploration of John 15 for all of us who are going through the motions and feel frustrated. Idleman reminds us that it’s connection, not production, that leads to a fruitful life–relationships, not circumstances, that bring joy. He offers his distinctive, biblical perspective on how to:
*Find greater rest, depth, and connection in your life
*Embrace freedom from the pressures of performance and production
*Recognize what you can’t do makes room for what God can do
*Step out of isolation even when it feels scary
*Discover the top distractions that keep you from connecting to God–and how to counter them
In the end, the fruit of your life won’t have to do with what you accomplished but with whom you stayed connected. Because no matter what happens next in this uncertain world, what matters most, lasts the longest, and brings the greatest joy is staying connected to the God who never leaves you.
Women Of The Bible Speak Workbook (Workbook)$18.99Add to cart
Based on the New York Times bestselling book The Women of the Bible Speak, learn to write your own story and journey of faith as you make the connections between God’s specific attention to the female heart through a deeper, more personal connection to the women of the Bible.
In the sixteen lessons, you’ll be challenged to consider the parallels between each woman’s story and your own. You’ll be asked to reflect on how God worked in their lives and how he’s working in yours.
Each of the sixteen characters in the book will have a chapter in the workbook that will take the user through exercises such as:
*READ invites you to read key moments of each woman’s life in the Bible and connect with her story.
*REFLECT provides an opportunity to identify specific character traits, responses to God, and acts of faith, as well as your similar traits, responses, and acts of faith.
*PRAY asks you to prayerfully consider how this woman’s story ties into the work God is doing in your life right now.
Every other lesson features an extra bonus section:
*PAIRS reveals that individually, every woman’s story is powerful. Here, you’ll consider the women in pairs, finding the commonalities in their callings and challenges. Some of the women knew one another. Others were connected simply by a thread of common purpose, one that becomes clearer by studying the women side by side.
Jesus V Evangelicals$19.99Add to cart
American evangelicalism is at a crisis point.
The naked grasping at political power at the expense of moral credibility has revealed a movement in disarray. Evangelicals are now faced with a quandary: will they double-down and continue along this perilous path, or will they stop, reflect, and change course? And while support of Donald Trump has produced the tipping point of the evangelical crisis, it is not by any means its only problem.
Evangelicals claim the Bible as the supreme authority in matters of faith. But in reality, it is particular readings of the Bible that govern evangelical faith. Some evangelical readings of the Bible can be highly selective. They distort the Bible’s teaching in crucial ways and often lead evangelicals to misguided attempts to relate to the world around them. Many Christians who once self-professed as evangelicals can no longer use the term of themselves because of what it has come to represent–power-mongering, divisiveness, judgementalism, hypocrisy, pride, greed. Some leave not just evangelicalism but Christianity for good.
Jesus v. Evangelicals is an insider’s critique of the evangelical movement according to its own rules. Since evangelicals regard themselves governed by the Bible, biblical scholar Constantine Campbell engages the Bible to critique evangelicals and to call out the problems within the contemporary evangelical movement. By revealing evangelical distortions of the Bible, this book seeks to restore the dignity of the Christian faith and to renew public interest in Jesus, while calling evangelicals back to his teaching. Constantine Campbell appeals to evangelicals to break free from the grid that has distorted their understanding of the Bible and to restore public respect for Christianity in spite of its misrepresentations by the evangelical church.
