Jesus preached lessons that seemed contradictory: Die to live. Lose to gain. Love your neighbor as yourself. Is it possible to follow in his footsteps today? This book takes readers on a journey into a faith that dares members of our pop culture to live like Christ - to deny themselves and take up the cross.

Western Civilization is wealthier, but it isn't happier.

We are the richest people ever to walk the face of the earth, but according to research, we aren't becoming happier. Families and communities are increasingly fragmented, loneliness is skyrocketing, and physical and mental health are on the decline. Our unprecedented wealth doesn't seem to be doing us much good.

Yet, when we try to help poor people at home or abroad, our implicit assumption is that the goal is to help them to become like us. "If they would just do things our way, they'd be fine!"

But even when they seem to pursue our path, they too find that the American Dream doesn't work for them. What if we have the wrong idea altogether? What if the molds we are using to help poor people don't actually fit any of us? What if the goal isn't to turn other countries into the United States or to turn America's impoverished communities into its affluent suburbs?

In Becoming Whole (building on the best-selling When Helping Hurts), Brian Fikkert and Kelly M. Kapic look at the true sources of brokenness and poverty and uncover the surprising pathways to human flourishing, for poor and non-poor alike. Exposing the misconceptions of both Western Civilization and the Western church about the nature of God, human beings, and the world, they redefine success and offer new ways of achieving that success. Through biblical insights, scientific research, and practical experience, they show you how the good news of the kingdom of God reshapes our lives and our poverty alleviation ministries, moving everybody involved towards wholeness.

Do you feel the tension between the pleasures of earth and the purpose of heaven? You want to enjoy life in this world--the beauty of God's creation and the rich love of deep relationships with others--yet you wonder if you were made for more. You long to be radically committed to Jesus, but you're not sure what that means for your everyday life.

Michael Wittmer explains how to bring your human and Christian lives together. When you grasp God's story, you'll understand that not only is it possible to serve Jesus and still enjoy your life, but it's the only way you can.

Written in a devotional style that is theologically rich and biblically accurate, Becoming Worldly Saints helps you understand who you are and why you are here. You can live with joy--free from false guilt--in a not-yet-redeemed world.

"It made me laugh out loud. This is popular theology at its best."--Al Wolters

In this world 100,000 people a day are becoming Christians, in some countries the number outstrips the birth rate. Each week 1600 new congregations are formed.This is not a story you will be familiar with through your news media!

Even in cynical Britain, for the ten years that straddled the 20th and 21st century divide, evangelical churches across all denominations saw an average 68% increase in regular attendees.

For you who have become one of those new believers, and also for those curious at such a phenomenon, Richard Bewes, the senior pastor of one of the largest churches in London, England, guides you into becoming a mature believer.

Robert Murray McCheyne's fervent love of the gospel shone clearly through everything he wrote and said, often leading him to tears while he preached. This short book brings together seven such sermons, in which McCheyne expounds the glories of life in Christ. Shorter and more easily digestible than some of his written works, but lacking none of the biblical depth, these sermons make for powerful devotional material.

PULITZER PRIZE WINNER - NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - An unflinchingly look into the abyss of slavery, from the acclaimed Nobel Prize winner. This spellbinding novel transforms history into a story as powerful as Exodus and as intimate as a lullaby.

Sethe, its protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. She has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. And Sethe's new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved. Filled with bitter poetry and suspense as taut as a rope, Beloved is a towering achievement.

There is but one king that I know. It is he whom I love and worship. If I were to be killed a thousand times for my loyalty to him, I would still be his servant. Christ is on my lips, Christ is in my heart; no amount of suffering will take him from me.--Genesius of Rome These are more than lofty words. They are a reflection of ultimate faith spoken by a person staring death in the face. Like a flaming torch, they illuminate for us the reality the martyrs saw, the truth that gripped their hearts and lifted their eyes to heaven in the face of fire, sword, and executioner's axe. biographies of sixty Christians who died for their faith, from Stephen, the church's first martyr, to Bahram Dehqani-Tafti of Iran, who was shot to death in 1981. In today's age of uncertainty, spiritual pluralism, and self-indulgence, the words of the martyrs remind us of the worthiness of Jesus and the costliness of the gospel. They humble us with their commitment. They fortify our faith with their honesty and certitude. And they direct our vision toward eternal realities that far outshine anything this world has to offer.
