Summary: How do you prepare your kids for life’s ups and downs? How do you push back the harmful messages of our culture? How do you help your kids get to know God?
Starr Meade encourages parents to impart a robust theology to their children, a firm knowledge of God that will prepare them for whatever life has in store. When we impart the eternal truths of Scripture to our children, we give them something to love and live by.
Like math and science, reading and grammar, piano lessons and soccer practice, God’s Word takes time to learn and understand. Where do parents and teachers begin? Here is a resource that will guide you and your children into the core doctrines of the Christian faith. Along the way, you will find that teaching your kids about God deepens your own understanding. It’s never to late to learn, so jump with them headfirst into the biblical and doctrinal knowledge they need.
320 pages | List Price: $14.99 | Paperback
Summary: Dan Doriani understands the challenges of being a man, and he knows you don’t need more man-made lists to excel as a husband, father, or leader. The new man in Christ is shaped by knowing God through his Word, because the way of a godly man is the way of his God.
With a focus on honing character rather than following techniques, Doriani seeks out the biblical pattern for masculinity that transcends culture. Discover how you can reflect God’s character in marriage, friendships, wealth, work, fitness, play, and more. You won’t find checklists for self-improvement (or three ways to grill a steak), but you will find clarity, insight, honesty, encouragement, and freedom in the Man who is ultimately our Savior, not just our example. You’ll even find ideas for games to play with your kids!
Each chapter includes questions for group study or discussion with spouses. This is a revised and expanded edition of The Life of a God-Made Man (Crossway, 2001).

Summary: When was the last time you thought about being pious? The word tends to make us think of having a “holier-than-thou” attitude. But this negative view strays far from piety’s beginnings. Joel Beeke reclaims the Reformers’ vision for an attractive piety rooted in the knowledge of God and our union with Christ. Focusing on both mind and soul, he offers practical ways to cultivate a vibrant piety, helping you grow in Christlikeness and in your reverence and love for God. Bring harmony between your doctrine and practice, and bring glory to God as he cultivates the fruit of the Spirit in your life.

Summary: How do we know that God always does what is best for us? Focusing on Romans 8:32, Sinclair Ferguson points us to the heavenly Father who refused to spare his own Son—and the Son who was obedient in atoning in our place for our sins. If this is who God is, we can confidently say he is for us.
32 pages | List Price: $4.99 | Booklet
Summary: Doubts and denials swarm the biblical teaching that humans descend from an historical pair, Adam and Eve. Christians who entertain these doubts also claim they are compatible with Christian commitment. But is that possible? Richard Gaffin shows how these denials actually undermine the entire history of redemption taught in Scripture. With no Adam, there is no gospel.

Series: Guided Tour of Church History
Summary: James L. Schwenk writes on the life of the most significant traveling preacher in North America’s Great Awakening and one of the most important in Britain’s eighteenth-century revival, George Whitefield. This is a concise biography on Whitefield’s life from his early childhood in Gloucester, England, to his conversion at Oxford University through the influence of Charles Wesley, to his many missionary travels throughout the American colonies, to his death in Newburyport, Massachusetts. Schwenk completes the picture with writings from original sources—including Whitefield’s friends and contemporaries such as John Wesley and Benjamin Franklin—and excerpts from Whitefield’s writings.

Walking with Jesus through His Word: Discovering Christ in All the Scriptures
320 pages (estimate) | List Price: $16.99 | Paperback
Summary: What connects the whole Bible into one purposeful story?
Dennis Johnson takes readers of the Bible on a journey of discovery through the Old and New Testaments, pointing out a network of trails in the text. These are recurring themes that link different parts of the Bible to Jesus the Christ, the fulfiller of God’s promises and redeemer of God’s people.
Dennis emphasizes how each biblical passage must be read in its close and canonical contexts, revealing the Bible’s identity as a book about a relationship—the covenant between God and his people. This helps us to see Christ and his mission as a pattern that emerges naturally throughout the tapestry of Scripture.
God embedded in Israel’s history events, individuals, institutions, and offices that foreshadowed Christ, his saving work, and his church. Those landmarks point the way to Jesus, who reveals the Father, reconciles us by his sacrifice, and rules us by his Word and Spirit.

Summary: Philippe, an orphan shipwright apprentice in sixteenth-century France, is perplexed by the intense religious conflict raging about him. While his friends Maurice and Sophie cling to the good news proclaimed by the church Reformers, Philippe has not yet been persuaded to abandon the teachings of the state church in which he was raised. The gospel sounds liberating at times, but can he risk believing when persecution and bloodshed inevitably follow?

The choices he and his friends make in these violent times may cost them everything.

Summary: Your spiritual life should be a battle! The writer of Hebrews tells us to “hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering” (10:23 ESV). What (and whom) do we need to meet this challenge? How does simply “holding fast” turn into such a workout of faith? Author and blogger Aimee Byrd invites us to join her in some “theological fitness” training as she unpacks our call to perseverance and explores the great metaphor that physical fitness lends to theology. Learn about the “fighting grace” God has given us, and discover how we are equipped to live lives of obedience even amidst the suffering and irritations of ordinary life.
The Flow of the Psalms: Discovering Their Structure and Theology
304 pages (estimate) | List Price: $21.99 | Paperback
Summary: For centuries the book of Psalms has been read as a random collection of individual poems with no discernible pattern of intentional arrangement. Augustine referred to the organization of the psalms as a “mighty mystery”. Recent Old Testament studies insist that each psalm is not to be interpreted in view of its position in the overall book or by the psalms that border it. Yet O. Palmer Robertson shows that there is a clear redemptive-historical progression that develops throughout the five books of the psalms. In addition, structural elements such as the placement of acrostic psalms, strategic couplings of a Messianic psalm with a Torah psalm, and the grouping of psalms by topics indicate an intentional structuring. The uncovering of these various elements enables the lover of the psalms to get a grasp on the whole of the Psalter along with a fuller appreciation of each individual psalm.
