Michael P. V. Barrett surveys Exodus, giving special attention to the theological message of this formative Old Testament book.
In doing so, he demonstrates that the real history of the exodus providentially serves as a paradigm of salvation.
Through the three main themes of misery, deliverance, and gratitude, Exodus reveals God’s power and faithfulness in keeping His covenant promise to deliver His people from the bondage of sin to the service of grace. Thus, it is pictorial prophecy of spiritual truths that find ultimate fulfillment in the person and work of Christ.
Reading The Gospel of Exodus will help you do more than learn key facts of the exodus. It will teach you why those facts matter and help you see the spiritual benefits God intends for us regarding our own need of grace.

Where is God when life is filled with so much suffering? How can I be sure of God’s presence and affection, even in my pain? Can you believe in God and still wrestle with questions and doubt? These are the questions honestly explored in Relentless.
Whether in struggle, illness, death, or failure, the presence of pain causes us to question the presence of God. We pray and watch the sky, crossing our spiritual fingers for hardcore proof of God’s nearness. And in the silence, we sense something more sinister: perceived abandonment.
But what if we could collect evidence that God hasn’t left us? What if we could be absolutely certain of God’s presence and affection, strengthening our faith against any assault?
Woven throughout Scripture sits a single, extraordinary theme: God is with us. Ours is a God who speaks through burning bushes and leads through pillars of fire, who responds to a broken world by giving himself.
God in the Dock is one of the best known of C.S. Lewis’s collections of essays and includes Myth Become Fact, The Grand Miracle, Priestesses in the Church and, of course, God in the Dock.
“You are not merely beginning a book but rather entering your own journey into the ravished heart of Jesus, the Master Potter.” —MIKE BICKLE, International House of Prayer
Forsaken is a broken clay vessel in Comfort Cove, a quaint 19th-century fishing village. This is a story about the struggle for her soul as she is discarded on the Potter’s Field, the town’s garbage dump. The cosmic war for humanity is brought to vivid reality as Master Potter finds her there.
You may see yourself as you read about Forsaken and her struggle toward wholeness. Through many trials she develops intimacy, receives healing from her past pain and brokenness, and learns that Master Potter desires her even in her weakness. No one is too broken to be healed and used by God.
Heavenly and satanic forces battle for Forsaken’s soul until Master Potter rescues her, giving her a new name and new hope for her life. Supernatural encounters, visits from the spirit world, and her personal struggle for hope blur the line between allegory and reality.

Philosophy is not a closed club or a secret society. It’s for anyone who thinks big questions are worth talking about.
To get us started, Douglas Groothuis unpacks seven pivotal sentences from the history of western philosophy―a few famous, all short, none trivial. Included are:
“The unexamined life is not worth living.”―Socrates
“You have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.”―Augustine
“I think, therefore I am.”―Decartes
“The heart has reasons, that reason knows nothing of.”―Pascal
Sentences from Protagoras, Aristotle and Kierkegaard round out this quick tour.
Since every philosopher has a story, not just a series of ideas, Groothuis also offers a bit of each one’s life to set the stage. The seven sterling sentences themselves, while they can’t tell us all there is to know, offer bridges into other lands of thought which can spark new ideas and adventures. And who knows where they might lead?

A guide to biblically shaped worship, which has the greatest missional impact in a post-Christian culture
By the Waters of Babylon examines a relationship between worship, culture, and evangelism that is centered in a desire for biblical fidelity rather than cultural relevance. Imagine how the Hebrews felt during their years of captivity in Babylon. How could they sing the songs they once sang in the spender of Jerusalem now that they sat in exile? Christian worship in the West faces many of the same challenges as this tragic account of Israel’s captivity. By all accounts Christendom is dead, and unbiblical beliefs have progressively permeated Western thought, expectations, and culture.
So how should churches respond to this seismic shift in their relationship with an increasingly post-Christian culture while still following the biblical mandate to reach that culture with the gospel of Jesus Christ? By the Waters of Babylon will help Christians wrestle through this critical issue of the relationship between Christian worship and evangelistic witness, especially in the context of an increasingly hostile culture. The author demonstrates that biblically regulated, gospel-shaped corporate worship that communicates God’s truth through appropriate cultural forms will have the most missional impact in a post-Christian context.
