Safely Home – Fiction

Executive Ben Fielding hits upon a perfect plan: he will make his company millions of dollars by using Chinese labor to manufacture its electronic components. To kickstart his plan, he visits China, where he stays with college roommate Li Quan, whom he hasn’t seen in over 20 years. From Li, Ben learns that his initial impressions of China from his research and from visits over the years are false, but Ben doesn’t believe Li’s stories of the persecution of Christians until Li is taken to jail. As Ben rediscovers Jesus through Li’s faith, he discovers the truth that God does not promise an easy life on Earth, only eternal happiness after death.

The Book on Leadership

More than ever, people are talking about leadership. But much of today’s discourse is advancing the same old misconceptions.

In The Book on Leadership, best-selling author, pastor, and teacher John MacArthur sets the record straight: Leadership does not come from a job title. It isn’t a matter of personality or charisma. And it isn’t the same thing as iron-fisted authority. True leadership – the kind that refuses to bend to a shifting, fickle world – comes from a much deeper source.

Based on the writings of one of the most effective spiritual leaders of all time (the apostle Paul) MacArthur presents the “26 Characteristics of a True Leader.” Whether you are a business leader, civic leader, church leader, parent, teacher, or student, the life of Paul will empower you to unleash your own capacity for leadership.

Captivating – Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul

Every little girl has dreams of being rescued by the hero, of being swept away into a great adventure, of being the beautiful princess. Sadly, when women grow up, they are taught to be tough, efficient, and independent. Many Christian women are tired, struggling under the weight of the pressure to be a “good servant,” a nurturing caregiver, passionate lover, or capable home manager.

What the Wild at Heart Field Manual did for men, the Captivating can do for women. By revealing the three distinctly female desires every woman shares, John and Stasi Eldredge invite participants to recover their feminine hearts, which may have suffered many wounds but were originally defined in the image of a passionate God.

How Women Help Men Find God

Women don’t understand men’s spiritual needs but they want to and desperately need to know what they can do (and should not do) to keep their men engaged at church. In the follow-up to his bestselling Why Men Hate Going to Church, author David Murrow speaks directly to women to help them understand the real reasons men resist Christianity. He offers a way of talking about faith that intrigues men instead of repels them and then challenges them to bring more risk and adventure to their own walk with the Lord.51at7-DmKlL

Christian Education for the Real World

Christian education must be grounded in and governed by the Word of God. Christian Education for the Real Worldis a wake-up call for Christian parents and school administrators helping them to think about education biblically and with an eternal perspective.

The dangers of a compromised Christian education are seen throughout the world today as many young adults walk away from their faith. Morris urgently calls parents, educators, and administrators to seek first the kingdom of God for this generation’s education knowing the result will be the fulfillment of God’s mandate to have dominion on this earth, to disciple others, and reach the lost.

How do you establish Christ-centered education in an overwhelmingly humanistic educational world? How do you overcome the subtle pagan theories of science and behavior that are likely poisoning your Christian school and your child’s education? Dr. Henry Morris, a professional educator of over 50 years, offers a clear, concise and convincing framework for implementing the divine standards for education.

According to Morris, the main goals of such an education are threefold:

  • the transmission of the truth
  • the training of individual students for productive lives in the will of God
  • the development of corporate completeness in Christ

The enterprises of science and technology, and especially of education, are man’s stewardship under God, to bring honor to Him. Christian Education for the Real World will revolutionize the thinking of Christian parents, teachers and school administrators. Dr. Morris accomplished a great ministry of bringing education and science back to God. With this practical and definitive resource, he is passing the baton to you.
