12th Annual Outreach Resource of the Year Recommendation (Missional Church)
2014 Best Book of Missional Theology, from Byron Borger, Hearts and Minds Bookstore
The story of Christianity is a story of incarnation―God taking on flesh and dwelling among the people he created. God appointing and sending people as his body, his hands, and feet. Disciples of Jesus bearing the good news even as they bear the marks of his passion. Whatever Christianity is, it is at least a matter of flesh and blood and the ends of the earth.
And yet so much of contemporary Christian culture is rooted not in the incarnation but in escape―escape from the earth to heaven, escape from the suffering of this world, escape even from one another. Christianity is increasingly understood as something personal, conceptual, interior, private, neighborless. If Jesus was God incarnate, the church is in danger of being excarnate.
Michael Frost expertly and prophetically exposes the gap between the faith we profess and the faith we practice. And he offers new hope for how the church can fulfill its vocation: to be the hands and feet of Christ to one another and to our neighbors, to the ends of the earth and to the end of the age.

Kelly Langston knows firsthand the struggles and victories associated with autism–from the time she heard her son’s diagnosis and was given little more than a handshake and a brochure to the time she watched her son sing every word in his school musical. Through her experiences–the good and the bad–she discovered a beautiful blessing: God does care about autism. Better yet, he has a unique and marvelous purpose for children with autism–a purpose no less than that of any other child.
More than an “I’ve been there too” story, Autism’s Hidden Blessings highlights God’s blueprint for living a life full of joy and potential despite autism. Inside, you’ll discover:
-the inheritance of promises God has for you and your exceptional child
-why autism will never limit God from revealing himself to your child
-what to do when you are angry at God and how to move past it
-why love is the greatest therapy of all
-scriptural encouragement to help your family soar above the autism battle
Autism doesn’t define your child and doesn’t limit his or her potential. If you’re weary from the everyday battle against autism, join Kelly Langston on a journey to discover and apply the plan God has for your entire family. It’s time to reclaim your joy, laughter, and most of all, hope.
“I’m afraid there’s been a car accident…”
As Hannah Ryan waits for her family to return home from a camping trip, she realizes she has everything going for her—a husband other women admire, two charming teenage daughters, and loving Christian home. As the sunny afternoon turns into twilight, her uneasiness grows along with the shadows. Then a car pulls into Hannah’s driveway, bringing two police officers…and devastating news that shatters her life forever.
In the days that follow, Hannah struggles with unspeakable feelings of sorrow and rage—feelings that fuse into one chilling purpose for living: revenge against Brian Wesley, the drunk driver who has caused all her pain.
In her fury, Hannah shuts the Lord out of her life. She’s determined not to forgive Wesley or the God who allowed this tragedy to happen. Can two caring people help Hannah rediscover her faith…before bitterness destroys her?
Does the concept of loving law sound strange to you—like two things that just don’t go together? Christians today often don’t want to read about the law because they would rather revel in gospel and grace. Yet the Bible clearly links law with love, a connection we see in Psalm 119. In these insightful meditations, author Glenda Mathes sheds light on this “long psalm that often gets short shrift.” A closer look at Psalm 119, in particular, and several other psalms and Old and New Testament passages encourages readers to discover the delight of God’s written Word and rejoice in loving His law.
Glenda Mathes is an author and editor who lives with her husband near Pella, Iowa. They have four adult children, two of whom are married, and five grandsons.

A revised and updated edition of Stu Weber’s bestseller that paints a dramatic and compelling picture of balanced manhood according to God’s vision.
The definition of manhood itself is obscured by a culture in moral free fall. But this book cuts through the fog and defines a powerful blueprint for being the man—the Tender Warrior—that God desires for you and your family. Written in a warm, personal style, Weber presents the characteristics of tender warriors—including learning to speak the language of women, watching out for what lies ahead, and keeping commitments—in an upfront, straightforward style that challenges readers to realize God’s plan for men.
Stu Weber’s now-classic teaching on a man’s vigilance, staying power, and consideration for the women in his life will move you to pursue the man you were created to be.
The Bible: The Big Picture is a resource for students, fledgling churches or individuals wanting to have an overview of what the Bible is about. It does not seek to replace the individual study of Biblical doctrines or even history but more as an encouragement to do so.
In essence, the book started off as a chronology of events within the Old Testament but that led to what could be regarded as a timeline related to the ‘people of God’ and how God’s promises were and still are linked to the nation or individual’s responsibilities.
There is a précis for each book of the Bible and a one-line statement for each chapter within each book together with an Appendix giving details of various related places and journeys.
The closing parts of the book deal mainly with the growth of the early Christian church up until the time of Constantine in 325 AD and cover the opposition from without ‘persecution’ and also from within ‘heresy’.
The Bible: The Big Picture is not interspersed with references to chapters and verses since the idea was to assume that the reader might well doubt the veracity of the Bible and hence not value proof from within the Bible. Hopefully, the result is something that is easy to read and interesting enough to generate further investigation.
