It's time to start proclaiming the good news.

Many evangelicals have used the ongoing conflict in the Middle East as fodder for debates over how to interpret prophecy, instead of seeing it as the human tragedy that it is. In Apocalypse Later, former Muslim Abdu H. Murray urges Christians to change their focus from eschatology to the gospel of Jesus Christ, because only Christ can change the hearts of Jews and Muslims in the midst of conflict.

"Murray calls us back to the person of Jesus and the message of His death and resurrection, pleading with us to restore its centrality, contrary to the periphery discussions that not only detract from the gospel but actually offend the very folks we most want to reach. We need to hear and heed Murray's timely warning."--Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University

"This book provides a perspective that is level-headed, insightful, and caring. It is a valuable contribution for Christians, informing them that they are talking past Muslims and Jews, and how to turn that around."--Michael Licona, Apologetics Coordinator, North American Mission Board

"Murray presents a genuinely biblical and more fruitful alternative in response to the strife, suffering, and injustices the Middle East region has endured. This is a bold--and far more promising--way forward."--Paul Copan, Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics, Palm Beach Atlantic University

Church planting is not just about gathering new communities of people who are already Christians. In the book of Acts, church plants begin with sharing the gospel. Planting churches flows naturally out of making disciples. Pastor J. D. Payne explains the process and stages of church planting, with biblical foundations and practical steps for planting teams. He provides a pathway for the multiplication of disciples, leaders and churches. Here are church planting strategies and activities that are simple, highly reproducible and can be implemented by ordinary team members, not just by charismatic leaders. This guide can be used for planting in contexts among any given people group, domestically or internationally. It is an ideal resource for teams to work through together as they follow God's call in their community.

Worship in the evangelical tradition is a blend of prepared and extempore contributions. It generally follows a set pattern, but openness to spontaneity is an essential ingredient. As in other traditions, ministers and worship leaders receive very little training in how to lead worship and this book meets a pressing need. It considers many aspects of worship including: Why do we worship? Who is worship for? Patterns and shapes in worship, types of prayer, singing, preaching, The Lord's Supper, details of leading, the spirituality of leading worship, connections to the whole of life, Worship as encounter, Worship as pastoral care, Worship as evangelism, and Worship as celebration. A directory of resources and online worship is also provided.

ARCHITECTURE OF IMMANMENCE

In this book Mark Torgerson shows how modern architecture has heavily influenced the construction of new sacred spaces, producing a new way of building that emphasizes God's coming near to us.
Torgerson begins by discussing God's transcendence and immanence and showing how church architecture has traditionally interpreted these key concepts. He then traces the theological roots of immanence's priority from liberal theology and liturgical innovation to modern architecture. Next, Torgerson illustrates this new architecture of immanence through particular practitioners, focusing especially on the work of theologically savvy architect Edward Anders Sovik. Finally, he addresses the future of church architecture as congregations are buffeted by the twin forces of liturgical change and postmodernism.
An Architecture of Immanence will interest architects, liturgists, and all Christians who seek to read the sacred spaces of the recent past.

ARISTOTLES POLITICS

Sale 20% off
One of the fundamental works of Western political thought, Aristotle's masterwork is the first systematic treatise on the science of politics. For almost three decades, Carnes Lord's justly acclaimed translation has served as the standard English edition. Widely regarded as the most faithful to both the original Greek and Aristotle's distinctive style, it is also written in clear, contemporary English.

This new edition of the Politics retains and adds to Lord's already extensive notes, clarifying the flow of Aristotle's argument and identifying literary and historical references. A glossary defines key terms in Aristotle's philosophical-political vocabulary. Lord has made revisions to problematic passages throughout the translation in order to enhance both its accuracy and its readability. He has also substantially revised his introduction for the new edition, presenting an account of Aristotle's life in relation to political events of his time; the character and history of his writings and of the Politics in particular; his overall conception of political science; and his impact on subsequent political thought from antiquity to the present. Further enhancing this new edition is an up-to-date selected bibliography.
