NEW RELEASE — The New Man by Dan Doriani

The New Man: Becom­ing a Man After God’s Heart by Dan Dori­ani 

280 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).

What Others Say About This Book:

An acces­si­ble, bib­li­cal, and inspir­ing vision for man­hood. I rec­om­mend it to Chris­t­ian men everywhere.”

Dar­rin Patrick, Author of The Dude’s Guide to Man­hood and The Dude’s Guide to Marriage

Dan is a proven thinker and leader. . . . He has some­what mirac­u­lously man­aged to peel away the pop­u­lar, overly-sensitive-to-public-opinion rein­ter­pre­ta­tion of what it means to be a man, while at the same time remained sen­si­tive to the cul­tural moment in which believ­ers must actu­ally live out their faith. No small feat!”

Patrick Mor­ley, Founder of Man in the Mirror

Dan Doriani’s book will be a feast for your heart and life to your soul. It will bring you pur­pose and mean­ing and offer a free­dom that can be expe­ri­enced and real­ized only with a heart poised toward God. The New Man will equip men to lead coura­geously and to leave a godly legacy for gen­er­a­tions to come!”

Piety: The Heart­beat of Reformed The­ol­ogy by Joel R. Beeke

40 pages | List Price: $4.99 | Book­let

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.

The Heart of the Gospel: God’s Son Given for You by Sin­clair B. Ferguson

24 pages | List Price: $4.99 | Book­let

Sum­mary: How can we truly know that God always does what is best for us? Focus­ing on Romans 8:32, Sin­clair Fer­gu­son reminds us what lies at the heart of the gospel. In the atone­ment, we behold the Father who refused to spare his own Son—and the Son who was obe­di­ent in being deliv­ered up on our behalf. If this is the kind of God we have, and if this is what he has already shown us of him­self, then we can con­fi­dently say he is for us.

About the Author:

What Others Say About This Booklet:

Sin­clair Fer­gu­son reaches deep into the Scrip­tures to dis­close the love of the tri­une God for fallen sin­ners. This is a won­der­ful elixir for the soul and should not be missed.”

J. V. Fesko, Pro­fes­sor of Sys­tem­atic and His­tor­i­cal The­ol­ogy, West­min­ster Sem­i­nary California

This is a book that I will give to non-Christian friends as well as sea­soned believ­ers. The Heart of the Gospel not only informs, but trans­forms, as it pro­claims Christ in his sav­ing office.”

No Adam, No Gospel: Adam and the His­tory of Redemp­tion by Richard Gaf­fin Jr.

32 pages | List Price: $4.99 | Book­let

Sum­mary: Doubts and denials swarm the bib­li­cal teach­ing that humans descend from an orig­i­nal pair, Adam and Eve. Some even claim that these doubts are com­pat­i­ble with Chris­t­ian com­mit­ment. But is that pos­si­ble? Richard Gaf­fin shows how these denials under­mine the entire his­tory of redemp­tion taught in Scrip­ture. When we remove Adam and Eve from his­tory, we are left with no redemp­tive his­tory. Gaf­fin reminds us that, with no Adam there is no gospel.

What Others Say About This Booklet:

In Scrip­ture, who we were in Adam is deci­sive for who we are now as human beings made in the image of God, and who we shall become as redeemed believ­ers in Christ. Dick Gaf­fin draws out the seri­ous the­o­log­i­cal impli­ca­tions that nec­es­sar­ily flow from the denial of a his­toric Adam as the pri­mor­dial ances­tor of humanity.”

Sum­mary: Whether you are a par­ent or a teacher, Starr Meade encour­ages you to impart a robust knowl­edge of God to your chil­dren from a young age, because a sound the­ol­ogy will pre­pare them for what­ever life has in store. Our kids need to know God in order to grow in love for him and to live for him. When we teach the truths of Scrip­ture to our chil­dren, we give them truth to love and live by.

Like math, gram­mar, piano, or soc­cer, God’s Word takes time to learn and under­stand. Where do par­ents and teach­ers begin? Starr Meade will guide you and your chil­dren into the core doc­trines of the Chris­t­ian faith. On your jour­ney together, you will find that teach­ing kids about God deep­ens your own under­stand­ing. It’s never too late to learn, and there’s noth­ing bet­ter to give than truth.

What Others Say About This Book:

What do our chil­dren need most? Starr Meade gives it to us straight—they need truth! Chil­dren are the­olo­gians, and it is our respon­si­bil­ity to dis­ci­ple them. Give Them Truth teaches us that this isn’t a mere intel­lec­tual pur­suit. The truth is per­sonal. Meade shows how it enters into our children’s lives in all their hurt and pain, all their dis­ap­point­ments, and all their rejoicing.”

NEW RELEASE — Computer Science by Jonathan R. Stoddard

Com­puter Sci­ence: Dis­cov­er­ing God’s Glory in Ones and Zeros
by Jonathan R. Stoddard

32 pages | List Price: $4.99 | Book­let

Sum­mary: What does com­puter pro­gram­ming have to do with God? Jonathan Stod­dard shows how com­put­ing tran­scends com­put­ers them­selves and finds its source in the God who speaks the world into exis­tence. The way pro­gram­mers write code gives them a unique insight into God’s all-powerful word. In fact, pro­gram­mers image God when they use words to accom­plish spe­cific tasks in an orderly fash­ion. Like God, they can make their code beau­ti­ful in how effec­tively it car­ries out the task (and avoids crash­ing!). Many books deal­ing with reli­gion and com­puter sci­ence start with com­put­ers and make the jump to God, infer­ring that God is like a com­puter. Stod­dard argues that com­puter sci­ence is only pos­si­ble because of a covenan­tal God, and that God’s attrib­utes are what inform the nature of com­puter pro­gram­ming. Dis­cover how con­struct­ing soft­ware can glo­rify God and unveil more of his character.
