Evangelicals and Donald Trump: A Match Made in Heaven or a Marriage with Hell?
As a Christian, how can you support a president whose present actions and personal history you utterly disagree with? Radio host, Biblical scholar, and social activist, Dr. Michael Brown, represented the collective fears of many evangelical Christians when it became clear that Donald J. Trump would emerge as presidential candidate for the Republican Party.
“How can I support Trump?”
Undeniably, one of the most polarizing figures in American history, Donald Trump is constantly confounding the masses. He wars against “fake news” while creating his own media with “Tweets” that can provoke national dissension and confront unstable foreign relations. With one hand, he’s bringing healing; with the other, it looks like he is hurting.
As an evangelical leader, Dr. Brown steps into the madness to help bring clarity. Even now, many Christians are wondering how to Biblically and morally respond to a Trump presidency. Some are hailing him as “Savior and Chief,” whose every word and action is to be commended; others utterly and completely reject him. Where is the balance and what is the right response?
Presented with balanced social commentary, theological integrity, and a passion to see America fulfill her divine destiny, Dr. Brown shows you how to:
Cautiously support a flawed leader while maintaining allegiance to the lordship of Jesus.
Recognize the movement of God that’s present in the Trump presidency.
Praise the good and confront the bad when it comes to the president’s actions and decisions.
Whether you are a Trump enthusiast, or you cringe every time you read the headlines, Dr. Michael Brown will spiritually help you navigate the tumultuous waters of the uncertain social and political landscape.

Best–Selling Author Paul David Tripp Addresses How the Gospel Reshapes and Reorients the Christian’s Perspective on Finances
Money. The thought of it can be overwhelming, and the pursuit of it can be addicting.
Our society constantly promises us that money will provide what we want—success, comfort, peace, and happiness—leading our fickle hearts to trust money for things it was never intended to give us. Even if we think we know what the Bible says about money, there seems to be a gap between our theology and our everyday money struggles.
In this practical and hopeful book, best-selling author Paul David Tripp shows us how to view and interact with money in a God-honoring way. Through chapters that expose the depths of our heart struggles and our need for grace, this book offers a roadmap to find peace, generosity, and joy in the world that God created.

This expanded edition of the original best-seller includes a daily devotional for personal reflection and a study guide.
A God chaser is a person whose passion for God’s presence presses him to chase the impossible in hopes that the uncatchable might catch him. A child chases a loving parent until, suddenly, the strong arms of the father enfold the chaser. The pursuer becomes the captive; the pursued the captor. Paul put it this way: I chase after that I may catch that which has apprehended me (Phil. 3:12).
The passionate paths of God chasers can be traced across the page’s history from Moses the stutterer, David the singer, and Paul the itinerant preacher, to contemporaries like A.W. Tozer, Leonard Ravenhill, and countless others who share one common bond: an insatiable hunger to know their Lord.
This book is a detailed study of higher education institutions affiliated to particular religions. It considers the debates surrounding academic freedom, institutional governance, educational policy, mission, and identity together with institutions’ relations with the state and their wider communities.
A wide range of institutions is examined, including Christian, Islamic and Jewish universities in the US, Europe, and the Middle East.
Essentially, this volume questions whether such institutions can be both religious and a ‘university’ and also considers the appropriate role of religious faith within colleges and universities.
