240 Pages | $19.99 | Paper­back | Text­book Lay­out with Color Illustrations

TABLE OF CONTENTS | SAMPLE CHAPTER

Sum­mary: Derek Cooper exam­ines the rival world­views found in Hin­duism, Bud­dhism, Con­fu­cian­ism and Tao­ism, Judaism, Islam, and irre­li­gion. He engages these world­views from a Chris­t­ian per­spec­tive, first by show­ing how the bib­li­cal authors engaged other reli­gions and then by sur­vey­ing the way Chris­t­ian the­olo­gians have done so. Each chap­ter con­tains six parts: (i) a cre­ation story, (ii) the religion’s his­tor­i­cal ori­gin, (iii) its beliefs, (iv) reli­gious writ­ings, (v) wor­ship prac­tices, (vi) as well as Chris­t­ian reflec­tions on the reli­gion. For those who would like to read more, the appen­dix includes lists of help­ful pri­mary and sec­ondary books.

 

3. Bible Study: A Student’s Guide writ­ten by Jon Niel­son

224 Pages | $12.99 | Paperback

TABLE OF CONTENTS | SAMPLE CHAPTER

Sum­mary: Have you ever been to a “Bible study” that didn’t have much “Bible” or “study” at all? With­out a proper under­stand­ing of how to do it, stu­dents can be dis­ap­pointed or scared away from study­ing the Bible. So what is Bible study—and can it work for high schoolers?

No stranger to teach­ing the Bible to teenagers, Jon Niel­son con­firms that real, mean­ing­ful Bible study is not only pos­si­ble for stu­dents, but impor­tant. He takes stu­dents seri­ously and expects them to take their faith seri­ously. Unpack­ing five truths about the Bible—that it is God speak­ing, is pow­er­ful, is under­stand­able, is lit­er­ary, and is one story—he demon­strates how the Bible should be stud­ied and how teenagers them­selves can lead that study.

 

4. The Hud­dle: Becom­ing A Cham­pion for Life writ­ten by Shawn Brower

224 Pages | $14.99 | Paperback

VIDEO | TABLE OF CONTENTS | SAMPLE CHAPTER

Sum­mary: Noth­ing can moti­vate, chal­lenge, and inspire a team to great­ness more than team­mates who are fully ded­i­cated to each other. But this rela­tion­ship doesn’t hap­pen on its own. Shawn Brower calls on his 20 years of high school and club coach­ing expe­ri­ence to demon­strate the secrets to train­ing and build­ing bet­ter per­for­mance as a team. In this guide­book, teams will find:

  • True accounts and quotes from famous Chris­t­ian athletes
  • Per­sonal eval­u­a­tion ques­tions to help play­ers focus on both their indi­vid­ual and team performance
  • Scrip­ture quo­ta­tions that have inspired real athletes
  • Exam­ples from a wide vari­ety of sports, apply­ing the lessons to any team

Learn from Coach Brower how to develop the dis­ci­pline you will need to suc­ceed both as an ath­lete and in the rest of life.

6. We Became Men: The Jour­ney into Man­hood writ­ten by Shawn Brower

240 Pages | $14.99 | Paperback

TABLE OF CONTENTS | SAMPLE CHAPTER

Sum­mary: Life is a jour­ney — a jour­ney of adven­ture, dis­cov­ery, risk, and rev­e­la­tion. Yet, if you are like most young men, you have never been invited to set out on this jour­ney — have never been guided to dis­cover who you are, what you should pur­sue, and who you can become.

This book is the invi­ta­tion you have been wait­ing for: a guide that affirms and val­i­dates young men and empow­ers them to pur­sue man­hood from a bib­li­cal per­spec­tive. It will give you clear vision and direc­tion for your life in vital, life-changing areas such as per­for­mance, temp­ta­tions, rela­tion­ships, idols, bore­dom with life, and much more. Take on the chal­lenge to be a coura­geous man of action and feel more free and alive than you have ever imagined.
