Malestrom builds on and expands previous books by Carolyn Custis James to explore the idea of manhood, a growing issue both in the wider culture and in the church. Until now, the entire discussion has been largely reduced to Western conceptions. Instead, James here shows how our culture's narrow definitions of manhood are upended when we consider the examples of men in the Bible and Jesus' gospel. Together, they show a whole new Kingdom way of being male and forging men and women into the Blessed Alliance.

Today men hear dozens of conflicting voices telling them how to be men. They're told to go out and beat the tribal drums or become sensitive New Age followers or dig deep into their psyches to find the macho warrior within. It all sounds good on paper, but it isn't so helpful when it comes to living authentic lives. Man to Man talks about real issues, real feelings, real life -- connecting with the felt needs of men right now where they live and work. This down-to-earth collection of insights from Chuck Swindoll offers practical inspiration for the working man, the single man, the husband, the father, the son -- any man who wants to live well and enjoy life to the fullest. Now in softcover.

What does it mean to be a man made in the image of God? And what does it mean to be a man under God's grace, called according to His purpose? In The Masculine Mandate, Dr. Richard D.

Phillips begins in the Garden of Eden, drawing foundational teaching for men in the earliest chapters of God's Word. He provides clear biblical instruction for husbands, fathers, and sons as he carefully examines important truths from Scripture. Includes discussion questions suitable for small group study.

Meeting Girls Like Us Book 2 Old Testament Women

product image
$8.95

While devout Christians revere the Bible, many tend to regard it as an allegorical text written thousands of years ago and ignore its relevance to modern life.

In Meeting Girls like Us, Book 2: Old Testament Women, Barby Bailey takes the opposite approach. She analyzes the stories of six biblical heroines and uses them as inspirational examples of how modern women can cope with the many challenges around them. Not only does she bring these women to life, but she also regards them as sisters who have confronted and conquered similar problems.

She tells us about Naomi, who battled famine, homelessness, death, and poverty. There's Hannah, who used to power of prayer to cope with her infertility. Abigail deals with a wealthy but ill-tempered husband, Bathsheba struggles for forgiveness, Ezekiel's wife was carted off to a foreign land against her will, and Gomer contended with temptation and infidelity. Bailey personalizes each of these stories, annotating them with scriptural references and amplifying their meaning by relating them to her own life.

In relating these six stories, Bailey not only makes us feel that we know these women: she allows us to understand ourselves better.

MEN & WOMEN IN THE CHURCH

Evangelicals stand divided in their view of women in the church. On one side stand complementarians, arguing the full worth of women but assigning them to differing roles. On the other side stand egalitarians, arguing that the full worth of women demands their equal treatment and access to leadership roles. Is there a way to mend the breach and build consensus? Sarah Sumner thinks there is. Avoiding the pitfalls of both radical feminism and reactionary conservatism, she traces a new path through the issues--biblical, theological, psychological and practical--to establish and affirm common ground. Arguing that men and women are both equal and distinct, Sumner encourages us to find ways to honor and benefit from the leadership gifts of both. Men and Women in the Church is a book for all who want a fresh and hope-filled look at a persistent problem.

  • Epilogue from Dr. Larry Crabb
  • Study Guide (Individual or Group Format Use)

    Regarding gender relations, the evangelical world is divided between complementarians and egalitarians. While both perspectives have much to contribute, the discussion has reached a stalemate. Michelle Lee-Barnewall critiques both sides of the debate, challenging the standard premises and arguments and offering new insight into a perennially divisive issue in the church. She brings fresh biblical exegesis to bear on our cultural situation, presenting an alternative way to move the discussion forward based on a corporate perspective and on kingdom values. The book includes a foreword by Craig L. Blomberg and an afterword by Lynn H. Cohick.

    Now & Not Yet Making Sense of Single Life in the Twenty First Century

    $14.99
    Nine out of ten young women say they're hoping for marriage,
    but three out of ten women are still single at thirty.

    The difference between life here and life hoped for can be disillusioning-and cultural changes have made single life in the twenty-first century more confusing than ever. Now and Not Yet offers guidance for navigating this new territory with purpose and contentment. Combining profiles of individual women, observations on today's culture, and spiritual insights, author Jennifer Marshall presents a unique perspective on the single woman's journey.

    Make sense of life in the gap between expectations and reality

    Singleness may be an unexpected in-between, but it's much more than a holding pattern. Now and Not Yet is about making the most of the time between now and the not yet for which so many women hope.
