Throughout history there have been great and articulate defenders of the faith. But with the new challenges of scientific atheism we see in our day, there is a need for a fresh and flexible approach to apologetics.After discussing the biblical basis for and historical uses of apologetics, McGrath offers various approaches to sharing your faith with others. He outlines pointers to faith, such as our innate sense of longing for justice, our appreciation for beauty, the order we see in the physical world, and much more. He also shows how there are many right ways to share your faith--through explanations, arguments, stories, and images--and helps you decide which works best for your personality and your audience.

I know that you are like me. The war that rages in my heart rages in yours as well. Things in the creation not only capture me; they capture your heart too. And I know that, like me, you need to spend more time gazing upon the awesome beauty of your Lord so that your heart would remember, and in remembering, be rescued.' So writes Paul David Tripp. He looks at the subject of awe through a number of lenses: ministry, transgression, materialism, growth, worldview, church, parenting and work. Awe of God puts other things in their proper place. It enables us to see as God intended, to lift our eyes higher, and worship him alone.
Last year, author Lysa TerKeurst released the book Made to Crave, providing the Biblical answer to why people diet, regain the weight they lose, and continue to find themselves stuck in this vicious cycle. Made to Crave helped thousands of people finally achieve victory in their weight loss journey. But, according to TerKeurst, "We need more than 19 chapters to stay motivated and on track. That's why I wrote this daily devotional with 60 inspirational entries. There is plenty of new material not in the original book. Rest assured, I also included your favorite nuggets of wisdom from Made to Crave."Just like the Made to Crave book, this Made to Crave Devotional is not a how-to get healthy book. It is the road to finding the lasting 'want to' that extends far beyond the surface issues of weighing less and wanting to wear a smaller clothes size.Says TerKeurst: "There's a spiritual battle going on. It's real. And it's amazing how perfectly the Bible gives us specific ways to find victory with our food struggles."Even for girls who don't crave carrots."

The Holy Spirit wants to wash our lives in the refreshing grace that streams every day from the presence of God. We know that God thunders from the heavens with powerful truths that capture our hearts and overcome our doubts. But he also whispers to us life-giving words that will heal and penetrate into the deepest place of our inner being. I Hear His Whisper is a compilation of messages that have come into the heart during early morning hours of devotion with Jesus. Listen to God's voice and be drawn into greater intimacy with Jesus. Be moved by his whisper, stirred by his Spirit, and thrilled by these messages of love. Open your soul to the whispers of God so that you hear him whisper his message of love to you!
If you put aside what you think you know about Jesus and approach the Gospels as though for the first time, something remarkable happens: Jesus emerges as a teacher of radical wisdom and compassion, whose aim is nothing less than the transformation of human consciousness. His methods are as bold and surprising as a Zen master's. And his aim is to break through our habitual thinking and to effect a complete conversion of our minds and hearts. Cynthia Bourgeault is our guide to rediscovering Jesus as a wisdom master in the tradition of the Buddha and other teachers. She looks to the Gospels, to contemplative experience, and to recently discovered ancient Christian documents (such as the Nag Hammadi scriptures and the Gospel of Thomas) to reveal a fresh new understanding of Jesus and his teaching. What Jesus experienced, she says, was a profound understanding of nonduality-the essential oneness of all things-and his aim was to transmit this truth to others experientially. She provides instruction in simple practices from the Christian contemplative tradition that leads to the kind of transformation Jesus taught.These include Centering Prayer, a form of Christian meditation, and Lectio Divina: "Divine reading," a meditative practice unique to Christianity that intersperses slow and deliberate reading of a text with silence, contemplation, and prayer.

In The Darkening Age, Catherine Nixey tells the little-known - and deeply shocking - story of how a militant religion deliberately tried to extinguish the teachings of the Classical world, ushering in unquestioning adherence to the 'one true faith'.
The Roman Empire had been generous in embracing and absorbing new creeds. But with the coming of Christianity, everything changed. This new faith, despite preaching peace, was violent, ruthless and intolerant. And once it became the religion of empire, its zealous adherents set about the destruction of the old gods. Their altars were upturned, their temples demolished and their statues hacked to pieces. Books, including great works of philosophy and science, were consigned to the pyre. It was an annihilation.
"Being in Christ, and all that it means to Christian identity and freedom, is the overwhelming theme of the New Testament ...If you see yourself as a child of God who is spiritually alive in Christ, you'll begin to live in victory and freedom." Every day millions of Christians live below par - emotionally, physically, spiritually. Because they do not fully grasp the central fact of their identity in Christ, they miss the freedom and maturity they should enjoy. This life-transforming book is for everyone who longs for spiritual growth.

2014 "Christian Retailing's Best" award finalist What did Jesus really mean when he said, "Follow Me"? In this new book, David Platt, author of the "New York Times" bestselling book, "Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream," contends that multitudes of people around the world culturally think they are Christians yet biblically are not followers of Christ. Scores of men, women, and children have been told that becoming a follower of Jesus simply involves believing certain truths or saying certain words. As a result, churches today are filled with people who believe they are Christians . . . but aren't. We want to be disciples as long as doing so does not intrude on our lifestyles, our preferences, our comforts, and even our religion. Revealing a biblical picture of what it means to truly be a Christian, "Follow Me" explores the gravity of what we must forsake in this world, as well as the indescribable joy and deep satisfaction to be found when we live for Christ. The call to follow Jesus is not simply an invitation to pray a prayer; it's a summons to lose your life--and to find new life in him. This book will show you what such life actually looks like.
