Few teachings of the Puritans have provoked such strong reactions and conflicting interpretations as their views on preparing for saving faith. Many twentieth-century scholars dismissed preparation as a prime example of regression from the Reformed doctrine of grace for a man-centered legalism. ‘In Prepared by Grace’, for Grace, Joel Beeke and Paul Smalley make careful analysis of the Puritan understanding of preparatory grace, demonstrate its fundamental continuity with the Reformed tradition, and identify matters where even the Puritans disagreed among themselves. Clearing away the many misconceptions and associated accusations of preparationism, this study is sure to be the standard work on how the Puritans understood the ordinary way God leads sinners to Christ.
The Bible’s final book, Revelation, can seem intimidating or downright impossible to comprehend, but this guided tour by Bible scholar Tim LaHaye and renowned puzzle master Timothy E. Parker makes it easily understandable.
Filled with complex imagery, vivid depictions of violence, and challenging spiritual references, Revelation is often set aside by readers in favor of more straightforward, easier-to-digest biblical material. Yet the capstone of the canon need not remain a mystery. Cleverly designed for maximum learning and retention, this book covers every verse of Revelation step by step and, for each grouping of verses, includes
a short three-question pre-quiz;
the passage of scripture being addressed;
a precise explanation of what the scripture means; and, finally,
the same three questions repeated with the answers provided.
By following this method, you will be amazed at how well you retain the teachings. Absorb this book and discover afresh?or for the first time?the richness of Revelation and its God-breathed, life-changing power to deepen your walk of faith.

Losing a child can only be described as an immediate shock of unbearable pain, grief, and mourning one can ever feel. Carole Sluski’s experience was no different. After losing her daughter Paula as a young adult, while still on her deathbed, she grasped for the hope that a miracle would happen and she would have her child back again. At this crisis stage, she reached out to God because she had nowhere else to go.
As reality started settling in, Carole began leaning heavily on her faith to make it through each day of her life. She was given a tool to use for healing her grief. As she continues to progress in living her life daily with healing, she has experienced a new development of her faith brought on by her connection with the Blessed Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus.
In Thirty: A Mother’s Spiritual Journey After Losing Her Child, Carole shares her raw first-hand experience of the pain, confusion, disbelief, loneliness, sadness, and sickness she encountered in the loss of her child, Paula. From the early stages, in the beginning, days, weeks, and months of her loss, when she realized she was living in her darkest moments, to her thirty-year journey of grieving and healing through her faith in God, Carole will help you understand that healing is possible.

It happens in marriages, parent-child relationships, friendships, workplaces, and churches: Communication falters, friendships wane, teenagers withdraw, marriages fail, and bitter rifts sever once-strong ties. Christian communities are no exception. Why do so many of our relationships suffer from alienation, indifference, and even hostility?
Author Sam Crabtree believes that often at the heart of these breakdowns is a lack of affirmation. He observes in Scripture that God grants mercy to those who refresh others, and in life that people tend to be influenced by those who praise them. Crabtree shows how a robust “God-centered affirmation ratio” refreshes others and honors God.
Practicing Affirmation sounds a call to recognize and affirm the character of Christ in others. When done well, affirmation does not fuel pride in the person, but refreshes them and honors God. All who are discouraged in relationships will find wisdom and practical insight in this book.
It’s the end of the church as we know it. In a digitally connected world, people are seeking spiritual answers through pop culture. Instead of retreating, Christians must “rethink the sacred” and enter global conversations about God–in film, literature, TV, and music–or face extinction, argues Barry Taylor in Entertainment Theology.
Taking snapshots from theology, cultural studies, sociology, and pop culture, Taylor explores a myriad of factors affecting religious life since the 1970s, including technology, fashion, celebrity, and global communications. He exhorts a move away from traditional Christian religion, proposing instead a manifestation of Christianity as a religion not of the past but of the present and the future.
For scholars, seminary students, culture watchers, and emerging-church readers, Entertainment Theology offers thought-provoking hope for Christianity’s future.
