New Releases

One Perfect Life
John MacArther
Thomas Nelson, March 2013
Do you long to know Jesus better and draw closer to His heart? What better way than to examine his life and teaching? In One Perfect Life, pastor and teacher John MacArthur draws from the richness of the Gospel narratives to paint a complete portrait of the Savior's life. Using the Gospel of Matthew as a base MacArthur weaves together the four narratives of Jesus' life to show how they work in harmony with one another. Supported with extensive study notes, and giving a verse-by-verse explanation of every Scriptural reference to Christ, from Genesis to Revelation, One Perfect Life will deepen your confidence in the trustworthiness of the Bible, and draw you into more meaningful worship. Discover the glory of our Savior who was, and is, and is to come.

Pursuing Justice
Ken Wytsma
Thomas Nelson, February 2013
The ONLY way to find abundant life and happiness is to give your life away. If God designed us to experience true happiness and abundant life, why do so many Christians feel dissatisfied and purposeless?  We try to make our lives better by chasing our own dreams, but that only makes the problem worse.  Instead, the path to a just life that’s satisfying and permeated with meaning leads us alongside the orphan, the widow, and the powerless.  Using clear evangelical theology and compelling narratives drawn from two decades of global ministry and travel, Ken Wytsma, the founder of The Justice Conference, shows God’s unchanging love for all His children.  On the way, the author calls us back to a proper understanding of biblical justice, a redeeming glimpse into the true meaning of righteousness and the remarkable connection between our own joy, the joy of others, and the wondrous Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pursuing Justice shows that God isn’t primarily concerned with personal piety but about empowering His children to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with their creator.  The message is as hopeful as it is fresh: when you discover anew the meaning of the Gospel and give your life away, you will find it…and it will be the best life you can imagine.

Gods at War
Kyle Idleman
Zondervan, February 2013
There may be no wooden or golden idols in your home, such as the ancient Israelites struggled with, but chances are, there are significant idols in your heart. These idols can look like normal, everyday concerns about security, financial stability, desire for attention or affection, but can easily become the ugly reality of anxiety, greed, and seeking approval of man, rather than God. In Gods at War, Kyle Idleman addresses the issue of idolatry in the lives of believers by asking insightful questions that will help you determine which false gods are striving to sit on the throne of your heart. By sharing true and powerful testimonies of those who have struggled with the idols of money, sex, success, food and romance, Idleman clears away the cultural baggage of the 21st century to expose these gods for what they are--rivals to our unhindered devotion to Christ. Discover the freedom that awaits you when you allow the true God to reside unchallenged in your heart and life.
