The Book of Common Prayer (1662) is one of the most beloved liturgical texts in the Christian church, and remains a definitive expression of Anglican identity today. It is still widely used around the world, in public worship and private devotion, and is revered for both its linguistic and theological virtues.
But the classic text of the 1662 prayer book presents several difficulties for contemporary users, especially those outside the Church of England. The 1662 Book of Common Prayer: International Edition gently updates the text for contemporary use. State prayers of England have been replaced with prayers that can be used regardless of nation or polity. Obscure words and phrases have been modestly revised―but always with a view towards preserving the prayer book’s own cadence. Finally, a selection of treasured prayers from later Anglican tradition has been appended.
The 1662 prayer book remains a vital resource today, both in the Anglican Communion and for Christians everywhere. Here it is presented for continued use for today’s Christians throughout the world.

The critical missing element in Christian mentoring today: the congregation
“Bringing up future leaders isn’t just the job of the pastor but of the whole congregation. This is an urgently needed book in churches today.”
–R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Young, emerging leaders of the church, many of whom have gone through leadership training and traditional mentorship programs, still too often find themselves unprepared for the realities of ministry. Many leave the ministry altogether, overwhelmed.
Phil Newton reveals a critical gap: single-source mentorship is incomplete. Mentoring must involve the congregation, not just senior pastors, in order to bring forth mature, resilient leaders prepared for all that ministry entails.
The solid, practical solutions in The Mentoring Church offer churches of any size both the vision for mentoring future leaders and a workable template to follow. With insightful consideration of theological, historical, and contemporary training models for pastor/church partnerships, Newton is a reliable guide to developing a church culture that equips fully prepared leaders.
Vanquished by tyranny, their fight for freedom rages. Amidst the struggle, proof of their stolen faith is discovered. And a nation rises.
The “Songs of the Deliverer” novels tell the story of a man sent to fill the void left by the death of the baby in the manger. Two centuries after the baby Jesus was deprived of his destiny as the fulfillment of the biblical prophecy, Emmanuel comes to bring hope to the hopeless and to reveal the path to new life. He reveals himself to be the Christ, the one sent from above, and religious congregations form to worship him and follow his path. But a ruthless King threatened by the people’s dedication to the new Savior, decrees that the veneration of Emmanuel cease and all relics of him be destroyed. It’s as if Christ never was.
Now, in Resurrection of Freedom the fourth book in the series, a battle for freedom is waged on the streets of the country. In the midst of this revolution, young grade school students are thrust into the eye of the storm and come face to face with the tyrannical ruler who deprives them of their liberties. Ensnared in extraordinary circumstances not of their making, these students stake their futures in the revolution sweeping the country. Trapped and on the verge of defeat, an unlikely hero emerges to lead the way out. His trading chip – an item of the forsaken Christ that could change everything. An offer is made to the despot who agrees to a deal: reveal the proof of the vanquished savior or the students will be incarcerated for the rest of their lives. With time running out, the ransom is paid. Will the promise be kept?
It’s cliché to say today’s adults hope the best for the next generation, yet fear the worst. As the gap between generations widens and our shared experiences dwindle, adults find it increasingly difficult to connect with and remain relevant to today’s young people. So the question is, what values can we pass on that will help them to become the next great generation? And how do we communicate those values effectively?
In this paradigm-shifting book, Jonathan Catherman shares with adults raised in the 1900s a fresh look at guiding 21st-century youth to become confident and capable adults. With relevant research and real-world examples, Catherman shows us the benefits of practicing and teaching four principles that will unite and empower us all:
– build bridges between generations
– transform raw talent into valued strengths
– practice stewardship before leadership
– live with purpose
Whether the emerging generation knows it or not, they need you. Their greatness tomorrow begins with your guidance today.
Today’s young people stand on the brink of unprecedented opportunity and influence. The problem is, many feel misunderstood and dismissed by older generations. Frustrated, they seek answers for how they can effectively influence change in the world when the gaps between generations grow wider and our shared experiences fewer. They want to make a difference, and they remain open to influence from adults who are willing to help them learn what they’ll need to succeed.
With energy and unique expertise, Jonathan Catherman assures the next generation that their influence will come–with practice. Through relevant examples and clear applications, he shows youth from high school into emerging adulthood how to build bridges between generations, practice stewardship before leadership, transform raw talents into valued strengths, and live with purpose. By doing so, they can make a difference, do even better than their parents, and become the next great generation.

Grace is a dangerous topic. We want to domesticate it, calm it down, and stuff it into a blue blazer and a pair of khakis. But biblical grace—or charis—doesn’t like to settle down. Grace is a dangerous topic because the Bible is a dangerous book.
Scandalous Grace flows from the author’s half dozen years of teaching the Old Testament to college students. You might think that would produce a book about judgment – but he shows how every character, every event, every single page of the Old Testament bleeds grace. Rather than looking for heroes to emulate – readers discover a gracious God who loves to redeem the unredeemable.
