Have you ever questioned where God was or what He was doing during a time of crisis or challenge in your life? Doubted that you have what it takes to stand strong in the face of adversity? Had difficulty seeing God's hand at work in your life each day? It's not difficult to see God in the more spectacular miraculous events of the Bible; but His usual method is to work quietly behind the scenes?both in Scripture and in your own life?using a person's actions to achieve His supernatural purposes. One story in Scripture that effectively portrays this is the account of Esther and Mordecai, two very ordinary people who became caught up in very unordinary circumstances; yet they trusted God in the midst of their crisis. Theirs is a chronicle of Courageous Faith. Learn how to recognize God's hand as He rules over the circumstances in your life. Gain fresh insight into His faithfulness. Become emboldened, encouraged, excited, and exprectant. Face the future with Courageous Faith.

In the new film Courageous (from the makers of Fireproof), four law officers are confident and focused when standing up to the worst the streets have to offer. But leading their families at home in a God-honoring way? That takes courage.

Based on the highly anticipated movie, the Courageous Living Bible Study is a 64-page book used for four weeks by an individual in relation with the class leader's companion teaching DVD of Courageous film clips. It will guide the participant toward living more courageously in four key areas:

Responsibility: serving, protecting, and casting a vision for their family
Priorities: focusing on eternal things rather than what is temporary
Legacy: recognizing a father's potential impact as a godly role model
Faith: strengthening a father's identity in Christ, increasing in wisdom

CREEDS & HERESIES THEN & NOW PAMPHLET

Sale 20% off
This beautiful pamphlet contains the full text of the Apostles Creed, Nicene Creed, and Chalcedonian Creed, and explains why they are important to learn today.

In 14-pages you will take a simple easy-to-understand look back to the historical teachings of the church, and bring them to life for today's believers. During the time of the early church (AD 30-AD 400) some key beliefs were misunderstood by Gnostics and other religious groups. Some people couldn't tell the difference between the teachings of Jesus' apostles and the notions that were common in society. It was important to put together short summaries of the essential doctines of the faith. Many of the phrases were written to address particular false beliefs. The pamphlet shows that many of the questionable teachings of 2000 years ago are still around. Understanding how the church dealt with these issues in the past helps us to deal with those same issues today. 14 panels, fits inside most Bibles, 8.5 x 5.5 inches, unfolds to 38 inches long.

A clear simple explanation of the church's response to ancient heresies, many of which are common in today's cultic groups and other religions.

CHART 1
Concise easy-to-understand chart with explanations of these groups. They are important to know because so many modern heresies are similar to them. Without a chart such as this, it is difficult to tell the truth from an incorrect belief because groups use the same terms.
  • Docetism
  • Ebionitism
  • Adoptionism
  • Manicheanism
  • Marcionism
  • Modalism
  • Montanism
  • Apollinarianism
  • Arianism
  • Macedonianism
  • Pelagianism
  • Nestorianism
CHARTS 2, 3 and 4
These charts explain each part of the three Creeds line by line and give Bible references for each phrase.
  • Apostles Creed
  • Nicene Creed
  • Chalcedonian Creed
CHART 5
Side-by-side comparison of Gnostic and Christian beliefs on:
  • Jesus, Salvation, Origin of Evil
  • Cosmonogy (origin of the universe) and Cosmology (the nature, order, and function of the universe)
This pamphlet will make the Creeds come alive. It takes important concepts and makes them clear and understandable for youth, college, and adults.

Ideas for using this pamphlet:
1. Confirmation and baptism and communion-preparation classes
2. Parents of confirmation students
3. Teacher training on the basic beliefs of Christianity

In her latest study, Daniel: Discovering the Courage to Stand for Your Faith, Sue looks at the life and lessons of Daniel and his companions, who, like so many believers today, faced increasingly challenging choices between their love and commitment to God and the often aggressive hostility of the godless culture in which they had been placed.

Ancient-Future Bible Study incorporates contemporary study of the Bible with an experience of the church's most ancient way of reading Scripture, lectio divina.

In six clearly written volumes, bestselling author Stephen Binz helps readers study the Bible in a way that leads to spiritual transformation and brings them closer to God.
Binz leads readers in a vivid study of key biblical characters, including Abraham, Paul, Peter, David, the women of the Torah, and the women of the Gospels. He shows all Christians who desire to have a transforming experience with the inspired Word of God how studying Scripture through lectio divina can enrich their discipleship. This ecumenical Bible study, designed for use by individuals or groups, includes questions for personal reflection and suggested action. Each volume includes leader's notes for guiding a study over the course of six sessions.

Death of Scripture & the Rise of Biblical Studies

$32.95
The Death of Scripture and the Rise of Biblical Studies examines the creation of the academic Bible. Beginning with the fragmentation of biblical interpretation in the centuries after the Reformation, Michael Legaspi shows how the weakening of scriptural authority in the Western churches altered the role of biblical interpretation. Focusing on renowned German scholar Johann David Michaelis (1717-1791), Legaspi explores the ways in which critics reconceived the role of the Bible. This book offers a new account of the origins of biblical studies, illuminating the relation of the Bible to churchly readers, theological interpreters, academic critics, and people in between. It explains why, in an age of religious resurgence, modern biblical criticism may no longer be in a position to serve as the Bible's disciplinary gatekeeper.
