While interest in religion has increased in the twenty-first century, Western culture has grown increasingly disenchanted. Many--including many Christians--no longer perceive the world in its proper light. The world is viewed as mundane, ordinary, everyday, instead of deeply beautiful, mysterious, and sacred. Moreover, the church has grown anti-intellectual and sensate, out of touch with the relevancy of Jesus and how to relate the gospel to all aspects of contemporary life. In this disenchanted age, Christian wholeness remains elusive, blunting the church's ability to present a winsome and compelling witness for faith. As a result, the Christian imagination is muted.

Cultural Apologetics Video Lectures, along with its accompanying book, Cultural Apologetics, sets forth a model of cultural engagement, rooted in Paul's speech on Mars Hill, which details practical steps for re-establishing the Christian voice, conscience, and imagination. The result is that Christianity will be seen as both plausible and desirable by those within modern Western culture, preparing the way, with the help of the Holy Spirit, for a genuine missionary encounter between the gospel and the contemporary world.

Sale 20% off
What are the basic doctrines of the Christian faith? Essential Doctrine Made Easy pamphlet outlines and explains 14 key beliefs embraced by believers around the world, such as Christ's Virgin Birth, Atoning Death, and Bodily Resurrection. This bestselling pamphlet looks at each doctrine and asks two essential questions: What Do I Actually Need to Believe? What Is At Stake Here? Includes a glossary of Christian terms, a chart showing how other religious groups treat these essentials, and much more. Size: 8.5x 5.5 unfolds to 38 long. Fits inside most Bible covers.
Christians have many differing opinions regarding how to work out the details of faith, but 14 essential doctrines are embraced by all followers of the Christian faith. Essential Doctrine Made Easy defines and explains all 14 beliefs, including: God's Tri-unity Christ's Virgin Birth Human Depravity Christ's Deity Christ's Atoning Death Christ's Resurrection doctrine The 14-panel pamphlet reveals the essential doctrines reflected in the earliest Church statements of faith called the creeds, as well as beliefs about the inspiration of Scripture and the method of interpretation. A chart shows how other religious groups such as Mormonism and Scientology treat these essentials. Written by author/theologian Dr. Norman L. Geisler, founder of Southern Evangelical Seminary. What are the core teachings of the Bible that have defined Christianity for more than 2,000 years? This bestselling pamphlet outlines and explains them: God's Unity - There is only one God God's Tri-unity - One God in three Persons Christ's Virgin Birth Human Depravity - No one can win God's favor by their own efforts Christ's Sinlessness Christ'sDeity Christ's Humanity Necessity of God's Grace Necessity of Faith Christ's Atoning Death Christ's Bodily Resurrection Christ's Bodily Ascension Christ's Intercession Christ's Second Coming Each doctrine is defined, and addressed by answering two essential questions. For example: The Doctrine: Christ's Atoning Death The penalty for sin is death--not only physical death (separation of the soul from the body), but also spiritual death (separation of ourselves from God). The penalty we owe to God was paid by Christ through his death on the cross. The acceptable payment had to be perfect, complete, and without fault. Christ, the perfect Man, gave Himself in our place, so that whoever believes in Him will not die (physically and spiritually) but have everlasting life (John 3: 16). Question One: What Do I Actually Need to Believe? Only Christ's sinless life, sacrificial death and bodily resurrection can bring us to God. Question Two: What's at Stake Here? The unique nature of Jesus' work of salvation. Reference Scriptures: For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. -Mark 10: 45 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness. -I Peter 2: 24 For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. -I Peter 3: 18 No one comes to the Father except through me. -John 14: 6 What do other religions believe? An easy-to-use chart shows how four other religi groups treat the 14 essentials. A key indicates whether the group accepts, redefines or denies each doctrine, enabling the reader to understand the controversies regarding thesereligious sects. Other religious groups include: Latter Day Saints (Mormonism) Jehovah's Witnesses (Watchtower) Scientology Christian Science Essential Doctrines Made Easy also addresses belief in the inspiration of Scripture and the methods of interpretation, which are important to faith, although not a necessary factor in salvation. Four ancient creeds of the early Church are summarized in the pamphlet, giving an historical overview of what the Church deemed most essential. These creeds include: The Apostles' Creed The Nicene Creed Athanasian Creed The Creed of Chalcedon A glossary of Christian terms is included, defining 24 terms which are widely used but not always understood, such as orthodoxy, mediator, grace, deity, and soteriology,

Most Christians already believe they should be telling others about Jesus, but traditional methods are no longer as effective in today's post-Christian world. Thus, we may become frustrated, blame ourselves, or simply give up. Evangelism in a Skeptical World Video Study, together with the accompanying book Evangelism in a Skeptical World, equips Christians with the principles and skills needed to tell the unbelievable news about Jesus to friends in a skeptical world.

Presented by speaker and evangelist Sam Chan, these lessons combine the theological and biblical insights of classic evangelistic training with the latest insights from missiology on contextualization, cultural hermeneutics, and storytelling. Every session is illustrated with real-world examples drawn from over fifteen years of evangelistic ministry. These are methods that really work--getting past the defensive posture that many people have toward Christianity so they can seriously consider the claims of Jesus Christ.
