Standing Firm Through The Great Apostasy
From the outset, the implications of Standing Firm through the Great Apostasy are terrifying. In fact, the most alarming aspect of this book is its utter plausibility. As Steve Gallagher leads his reader through a systematic and piercing examination of Scripture, the Great Apostasy emerges, not as a future event of which to be forewarned, but as the very essence of todays postmodern Church. In this thorough, and sometimes disquieting, investigation of the biblical predictions about the Great Apostasy, readers quickly come to realize what the Bible clearly reveals there will be a Church within the Church during the endtimes. Today, like tares in the wheat field, false adherents are growing up alongside true believers. But how will we know them? What is the hallmark of the Apostate Church? What are the distinguishing qualities of its rank and file confessors? This is where Gallagher is at his best. By mining the treasureladen writings of biblical scholars from past centuries and carefully examining the sacred Scriptures, he presents the reader with a classic portrait of the Apostate Church a prevailing selfcenteredness, widespread sensuality, and rebellion to authority. At first glance it seems unthinkable that such words could be attached to the lives of confessing Christians. But by the end it becomes all too clear that those who would cause the way of the truth to be maligned sit in our pews, sing in our choirs and stand in our pulpits.

Mothers And Daughters Of The Bible Speak$26.99Add to cart
God always keeps His promises, but not always in the way we expect….
“Have faith” is a phrase we hear all the time. But what does it actually look like to live it out? In The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak, Shannon Bream examines the lives of biblical women to see how God’s plans can turn our worlds upside down. She tells the story of Jochebed, a mother who took enormous risks to protect her son, Moses, from Pharaoh. Could Jochebed have imagined that God’s actual design for her son involved flight into exile and danger? And yet this was all part of the master plan to deliver Israel from slavery. Another biblical mother, Rebekah, made terrible choices in an attempt to ensure her son’s place in history. And a daughter, Michal, struggled to keep her faithless father, Saul, from sin, while battling pride in herself.
Through these stories, Shannon explains the intimate connection between faith and family–and how God’s unexpected agenda can redefine the way we think about family. Not all of these mothers and daughters in the Bible were paragons of virtue. Like us, they were human beings who faltered and struggled to do their best. While some heard God’s voice, others chose their own paths. Through the lens of their imperfections, we can see how God used their stories to bring about His divine plans. He’s still doing the same work in our lives today.
The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak shows that faith is more often a twisting road than a straight line. Yet, as the stories of biblical families attest, at the end of these journeys lies greater peace and joy than we could ever imagine.
