This book does not try to sound clever, or win an argument. It does aim to to introduce people to Jesus and the answers he gives to the hard questions we ask.
Many Christian young adults and teenagers have hard questions about their faith. Many non-Christians do, too. Michael and Carl take nine of the hardest, such as “Doesn’t Jesus ruin your fun?” “Why is there so much suffering?” and “What does Jesus really think about being gay?” These aren’t questions with easy answers; but, as they show, they are questions that have good answers. Written for people of all backgrounds and beliefs, it’s a book that is short but not simplistic, and clear but not condescending.
If you are a Christian struggling with these issues… if you want to have confidence to talk to your friends about these things… or if you are a non-Christian who wants answers to the hardest questions you can ask… grab this book.

Now more than ever, the world is hungry to gather and thirsty for connection.
Many of us wish to share a meal, share our faith, and share our lives with others. We want to open our home to friends and neighbors for the sake of meaningful community, but we’re overwhelmed with hospitality hang-ups. How do I extend an invitation? What will they think of my house or the food? Our welcome has been influenced by the messages of the world that tell us hospitality is about our ability to be, host, live, and cook a certain way.
In Gather and Give, Amy Hannon inspires you to embrace the simple hospitality of the Bible that values connection more than perfection and people more than presentation. Amy shares scriptural principles and practical ideas to make everyday hospitality a natural, joy-filled part of your life. You will feel encouraged and equipped to view your home as:
Understanding Biblical Theology clarifies the catch-all term “biblical theology,” a movement that tries to remove the often-held dichotomy between biblical studies for the Church and as an academic pursuit.
This book examines the five major schools of thought regarding biblical theology and handles each in turn, defining and giving a brief developmental history for each one, and exploring each method through the lens of one contemporary scholar who champions it. Using a spectrum between history and theology, each of five “types” of biblical theology are identified as either “more theological” or “more historical” in concern and practice:
Biblical Theology as Historical Description (James Barr)
Biblical Theology as History of Redemption (D. A. Carson)
Biblical Theology as Worldview-Story (N. T. Wright)
Biblical Theology as Canonical Approach (Brevard Childs)
Biblical Theology as Theological Construction (Francis Watson).
A conclusion suggests how any student of the Bible can learn from these approaches.

A biblical defense of egalitarianism that relies on Scripture to affirm gender equality in the church and in the home.
“Biblical womanhood” is the idea that the Bible teaches God-ordained male leadership and female submission in the home and subordination in the church. Some say this hierarchy of authority is sufficiently evidenced by examples of male leadership (and lack of female leadership) in the Bible: the first human was male, Israel’s official priests were male, most authors of Scripture were male, Jesus was male and chose twelve male Apostles. God is addressed as Father. Wives are commanded to submit to their husbands.
In The Bible vs. Biblical Womanhood, New Testament scholar Philip B. Payne argues that the very Bible passages that are often believed to teach male headship and female subordination actually teach gender equality. He demonstrates that the Bible does not endorse gender hierarchy but instead emphasizes:
