192 page | List Price: $14.99 | Series: Gospel Accord­ing to the Old Testament

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.

NEW RELEASE — A Journey to Wholeness by Mark Belz

A Jour­ney to Whole­ness: The Gospel Accord­ing to Naaman’s Slave Girl
by Mark Belz

208 pages | $14.99 | Paper­back | Series: The Gospel Accord­ing to the Old Testament

Sum­mary: This book focuses on bib­li­cal rec­on­cil­i­a­tion, both in its pri­mary sense (as Paul uses it) and in a sec­ondary sense, inso­far as it touches on rec­on­cil­i­a­tion between races, rich and poor, Jew and Gen­tile, the pow­er­ful and the weak, and between other alien­ated groups. The focus of the book is Naa­man, a Syr­ian gen­eral, and his Jew­ish slave girl, whose sim­ple tes­ti­mony helped to bring about a great work of rec­on­cil­i­a­tion: the sal­va­tion of her Syr­ian mas­ter. As the story unfolds, God’s sav­ing power is dis­played, par­tic­u­larly in bring­ing light to the Gen­tiles and in demon­strat­ing the free offer of the gospel. Many Chris­tians iden­tify Naaman’s story with his mirac­u­lous heal­ing in the Jor­dan River but fail to see the greater truth of God’s love for the Gen­tiles and the breadth of the gospel’s reach. Mark Belz brings under­stand­ing and encour­age­ment to us as we see God’s great mercy at work.
