Do you have money troubles? Often the underlying issue is not money but the promise of security, possessions, and pleasure that it brings. To lay a strong foundation for true financial success usually involves a change in perspective rather than in income. Biblical counselor Jim Newheiser’s reflection questions and practical exercises, paired with Scripture’s wisdom on financial and work-related topics, point you toward fiscal responsibility on earth and treasure in heaven.
“A timely gift for those who seek to live biblically in a culture that is saturated with the pitfalls of materialism.”

—Stuart W. Scott, Professor of Biblical Counseling, Graduate Program of The Master’s University
Is powerful, biblically principled journalism a lost art? In this three-part work on foundational concepts, practical techniques, and journalism’s agitated history, Marvin Olasky shows us how to become citizen-reporters and discerning consumers of news.
“Marvin Olasky shows a way forward for news coverage with wisdom and understanding to readers. His timing is good. Old media companies are running out of money. New media entures are struggling. His proposed recovery is needed now more than ever.”
—Russ Pulliam, Columnist, The Indianapolis Star
“Reforming Journalism offers both thoughtful analysis and page-turning readability. Olasky provides a wise mix of practical advice for reporting and writing, historical background, and biblical worldview training. . . . Our culture desperately needs true stories, so if you want to understand why the news media are collapsing and how to tell stories that help people see the world clearly, buy this book.”
—Les Sillars, Professor of Journalism, Patrick Henry College
“A compelling case for a journalism that tells the truth by embracing the principle of absolute truth and pursuing a clear-eyed view of human nature. Provocative, deeply researched, and engagingly written, Olasky’s book is both a master class in how-to journalism and a road map to a more accurate media guided by biblical principles. Every journalist should read this. And every Christian journalist should see it as a clarion call to be the moral conscience of a wider culture.”
—Wayne Slater, Former Senior Political Writer, The Dallas Morning News
Does going to church feel more like a duty than a privilege? Too many of us are in danger of overlooking the awesome presence of God in corporate worship. We’ve missed the fact that amazing things happen when God draws near.
Paul Engle invites us to join him at seven different biblical mountains where God met hisworshipping people. Explore biblical history—from Sinai to Zion to Carmel to Gerizim to Hermon to the Mount of Olives to the heavenly Zion—and gain a fresh appreciation for the awesome privilege and reward of coming into God’s presence in God-centered assemblies today.
“A handbook for worshippers . . . a mountain map to teach them what it means to gather for worship and the impact that worship can have on their lives.”
—Scott M. Gibson, David E. Garland Chair of Preaching, Baylor University’s Truett Seminary
“An imaginative journey through the Bible. . . . Because worship is central to Christian life, a book like this . . . is most welcome. Fresh breezes blow through its pages.”
—David F. Wells, Distinguished Senior Research Professor, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
“Dr. Engle leads us on a mountain-climbing expedition that shows us how God calls us to worship. . . . We are shown the centrality of God in worship and how this can enhance our present earthly worship.”
—Dominic A. Aquila, President, New Geneva Theological Seminary
“Engle uses the stories of seven mountains in Scripture to remind us of the trinitarian God who is what worship is all about.”
—Douglas J. Moo, Wessner Chair of Biblical Studies, Wheaton College

Jim Petty encourages us to revolutionize our giving by viewing money as a means for showing love and mercy to others. Petty traces this perspective throughout the Bible and shows how and why Christian giving has fluctuated over time. Finally, he explains how we can responsibly plan our own giving and finances, as well as encourage greater generosity in a church context. If more people give, the possibilities will be breathtaking.
“I am so enthusiastic about this book by Jim Petty. I know of no other book that digs more deeply into what Scripture has to say about money. . . . I know I will go back to this book again and again to root myself again and again in the money sanity that comes only from God’s Word.”
—Paul David Tripp, Author, Redeeming Money: How God Reveals and Reorients Our Hearts
“Jim’s book provides . . . clear, wise guidance. It includes the revealing story of money and giving throughout Scripture, a history of giving in the Christian church, and next steps we can take in our own giving. You will find it compelling and hopeful.”
—Ed Welch, Counselor and Faculty Member, Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation
“This is a special book. I’m familiar with much writing on generosity, but I’ve never seen anything like this, which surveys the entire Bible on generosity. . . . I hope that every Christian reads this book and is inspired.”
—Paul E. Miller, Executive Director, seeJesus; Author, A Praying Life and J-Curve
