    It's hard to talk about race and reconciliation. It helps to have a story we can all wrap our heads around... Jim fumbled for the door lock, but it was too late. Malik had jumped inside. Malik didn’t remember pulling the gun out of his waistband, but now it was pointed straight at Jim. “C’mon, man!” Malik yelled as he half-ducked under the dash. “They’re gonna kill me! Get us outta here!” So begins a night of tension, anxiety, and difficult conversations for Malik, a young black man from the inner city, and Jim, a middle-aged white man from the suburbs. Brought together by tragic circumstances, they must learn to trust each other...read more

    Most of us are regular people who have good days and bad days. Our lives are radically ordinary and unexciting. That means they're the kind of lives God gets excited about. While the world worships beauty and power and wealth, God hides his glory in the simple, the mundane, the foolish, working in unawesome people, things, and places. In our day of celebrity worship and online posturing, this is a refreshing, even transformative way of understanding God and our place in his creation. It urges us to treasure a life of simplicity, to love those whom the world passes by, to work for God's glory rather than our own. And it demonstrates that God has always been the Lord of the...read more

    It’s time to wake the sleeping giant in our world, in our communities, in our churches, and in our homes. There’s a revolution brewing, a sleeping giant coming out of a long slumber. For years men have been sitting to the side, minding their own business, nursing their own wounds. But that time is reaching its end. Our wounds must surely be tended to, and our business must surely be minded. We are meant for greater things than these, and the world can no longer indulge our slumber. Justice demands a response to these troubling times. Righteousness demands a champion to counter a climate of moral relativism. God made us men; it’s time to act like it. Good men are in...read more

    In our age when the church can too often seem like a poor copy of the world, Chad Bird challenges us to reclaim the astounding originality of our ancient, backward faith. Where the world stresses the importance of success, Bird invites readers to embrace nine specific failures in the areas of our personal lives, our relationships, and the church. Why? Because what human wisdom deems indispensable is so often an impediment to our spiritual growth, and what it deems insignificant is so often essential to it. With compelling examples from the Bible and today, Bird paints an enticing picture of the counterintuitive, countercultural life that God wants for us. He helps readers delight in all...read more

    Sometimes Christians--even those of us who have been following Jesus for a long time--have a sense of something missing.

Pastors Rob King and Eric Ferris explore this longing of "something missing" in their effective and inspirational new release by explaining how you can experience an ongoing, renewable, increasing awareness of the Holy Spirit...read more

    In the first devotional from David Platt, Follow Him equips and empowers you to bring people to know Jesus Christ through your life. To be a disciple of Jesus is to make disciples of Jesus. This has been true since the first century, when Jesus invited four men to follow him. More than searching for fish all over the Sea of Galilee, these men would spread the gospel all over the world. They would give their lives by not simply being disciples of Jesus, but by sacrificially making disciples of Jesus. And God’s design for twenty-first-century disciples is the same. Becoming a Christian involves responding to the gracious invitation of God in Christ....read more
