What is a life of radical discipleship? At the root, it means we let Jesus set the agenda of our lives. We aren’t selective. We don’t pick and choose what is congenial and stay away from what is costly. No. He is Lord of all of life.
In the last book by the leading evangelical churchman of the twentieth century, John Stott opens up what it means to truly be a follower of Jesus. In a refreshing and accesible style, he explores eight aspects of Christian discipleship which are too often neglected and yet deserve to be taken seriously: non-conformity, Christ-likeness, maturity, creation-care, simplicity, balance, dependence and death.
Here, including the last public sermon he ever preached, Stott offers wisdom gained from a lifetime of consistent Christian commitment. In addition, he poignantly reflects on his last years of life and ministry.
The message is simple, classic and personal: Jesus is Lord. He calls. We follow.
“The fruit of the Spirit working through millions of believers by faith could literally change the world…This is must reading for every sincere believer!” – Dr. Bill Bright, founder and president of Campus Crusade for Christ International
Would you like true joy? Healthy relationships? To live free from anxiety? You actually can if you let God’s Spirit grow His fruit in your heart.
Your witness for Christ is only as good as the fruit your relationship with Him produces.
The Fruit of the Spirit points you toward a lifestyle that makes the gospel you proclaim attractive to others because they can see its results in your everyday life, emotions, demeanor, and actions.
Drawing from Biblical examples, Trask and Goodall share insights that both challenge and encourage. They offer true-life examples of the difference you, too, can make when you let the Holy Spirit reproduce the character of Jesus within you.

A guide for raising children to be Christ-following adults and parents
With three adult children, eleven grandkids, and over forty-five years in Christian education, Glen and Ellen Schuknecht are asked a lot of parenting questions. But the most common question is always “How do I raise my kids to love God and love family–even after they’ve left my nest?” The truth is that all the rules in the world will do nothing if parents don’t reach their kids’ hearts.
Through compelling, insightful stories from parents and grandparents who’ve been in the trenches, the Schuknechts demonstrate why that heart-level connection is so crucial in building long-lasting, connected relationships with a foundation of Christ. These stories are intertwined with ideas, tips, and biblical truths any parent can engage with, including a parent-coaching questionnaire to help readers build a more connected parenting style. The authors’ fresh approach empowers parents to find their own vision for their families, tailor-made to their children and their circumstances.
There’s no magic formula here–just truth, grace, and hope instead of to-do lists. Glen and Ellen come alongside fellow parents and grandparents to help them find the ideas they crave, the hope they need, and the grace they must have to raise passionate and God-connected future generations.

It’s hard to be in the minority. If you’re the only person from your ethnic or cultural background in your organization or team, you probably know the challenges of being misunderstood or marginalized. You might find yourself inadvertently overlooked or actively silenced. Even when a work environment is not blatantly racist or hostile, people of color often struggle to thrive―and may end up leaving the organization. Being a minority is not just about numbers. It’s about understanding pain, power, and the impact of the past. Organizational consultant Adrian Pei describes key challenges ethnic minorities face in majority culture organizations. He unpacks how historical forces shape contemporary realities, and what both minority and majority cultures need to know in order to work together fruitfully. If you’re a cultural minority working in a majority culture organization, or if you’re a majority culture supervisor of people from other backgrounds, learn the dynamics at work. And be encouraged that you can help make things better so that all can flourish.
