Keeping the Church on Track in a Secular World

The church today faces great challenges, both from without and from within. Popular culture tempts Christians to compromise truth in the name of relevance and to ignore sin under the guise of tolerance. At the same time, serious doctrinal errors threaten to undermine the authority of God's Word, leading to all sorts of unbiblical practices.

Right Thinking in a Church Gone Astray offers responses from trusted evangelical voices on 15 timely issues. With a careful look at God's Word, you'll gain wisdom and insights on highly relevant topics such as...

  • measuring true success in ministry
  • countering the church's celebrity culture
  • responding biblically to homosexuality
  • reclaiming the essentials of the Christian faith
  • discerning God's ultimate priority for the church
  • With biblical guidance on these and other vital matters, this resource provides much-needed clarity for today's church.

    Rural People & Communities in the 21st Century Resilience & Transformation

    $29.95
    Rural people and communities continue to play important social, economic and environmental roles at a time in which societies are rapidly urbanizing, and the identities of local places are increasingly subsumed by flows of people, information and economic activity across global spaces. However, while the organization of rural life has been fundamentally transformed by institutional and social changes that have occurred since the mid-twentieth century, rural people and communities have proved resilient in the face of these transformations.

    This book examines the causes and consequences of major social and economic changes affecting rural communities and populations during the first decades of the twenty-first century, and explores policies developed to ameliorate problems or enhance opportunities. Primarily focused on the U.S. context, while also providing international comparative discussion, the book is organized into five sections each of which explores both socio-demographic and political economic aspects of rural transformation. It features an accessible and up-to-date blend of theory and empirical analysis, with each chapter's discussion grounded in real-life situations through the use of empirical case-study materials.

    Rural People and Communities in the 21st Century is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in rural sociology, community sociology, rural and/or population geography, community development, and population studies.

    How many times have we heard these statements...
  • "We can't compete with the megachurch in our town!"
  • "A new church was started two blocks from us. We've got plenty of churches without them!"
  • "The church brought another one of their campuses near us. It's totally unethical what they are doing."
  • "We can't reach young families. They all go to the big church that has all the children's and student stuff."
  • "We don't have the money or the people the other churches have."

  • Bestselling author Thom S. Rainer (I Am a Church Member, Autopsy of a Deceased Church) has heard comments like these hundreds, if not thousands, of times. They are statements of hopelessness. They are statements of despair. They are statements of defeat.

    Church leaders don't want to feel this way. They desire to break out of the mediocrity of the same, lame, and tame existence of their churches. They want their churches to make a difference.

    There is hope. God's hope. God's possibilities.

    What does a scrappy church look like? Let's take a look together.

    The past two decades in Christendom have brought forth a proliferation of books about church planting. One denomination (Southern Baptist) has even set a goal to start fifty thousand new churches over the next twenty year period. But what's missing toward that end is a solid resource that specifically defines how one established church can successfully sponsor or parent a new church into sustainable existence. Spin-Off Churches aims to meet that need with contributions from a team of veteran missional church planters whose access to current church sponsorship data through the North American Mission Board is second to none. Their experience and teaching will guide readers through the church sponsorship process from its biblical basis to the nuts, bolts, and resource basics of implementation and follow through.
