The David C Cook web marketing team’s mission is to engage in conversation to help churches and ministry leaders meet the needs of today’s culture. Our goal is to listen and connect with them, so we can equip them with our resources. To do that, we are taking the David C Cook mission statement - “To equip the Church with Christcentered resources for making and teaching disciples who obediently transform today’s generations” - and applying it online. Here’s how we are doing that. Listen – Social Media is a great tool to promote, but it’s also a great place to listen to what other people are saying. Folks are not shy about posting their opinions on Twitter, blogs, Facebook, etc. We use Twitter’s search feature and free Google Alerts to help us listen. A good rule of thumb is to spend twice as much time listening (reading) as talking. There is a reason we have two ears and one mouth. Connect – Facebook has 600+ million users. Connecting with them is a great way to start a conversation. In a world that changes as regularly as a status update, we have to be quick to respond with news worthy of attention. By sharing information and providing giveaways and sneak peeks, we’re creating dialogue that’s advancing our ministry work while helping others to do the same. Equip – Listening to what others are saying helps us build relationships so that we can begin equipping today’s leaders with valuable resources that can help shape their ministry. We understand the value of these relationships so we’ve created sites like discipleshaping.com and sundayschool.com to enable conversation about the church and help folks find resources to meet their mission and needs.

At David C Cook we seek to create a culture that listens, connects, and equips today’s church. We pray that the information we are sharing is helping to shape disciples so they can go about changing the world.

We are proud to be walking alongside you and want to help in anyway we can. You can reach us on Facebook at http://facebook.com/davidccookpublic.

All Is Grace A Ragamuffin Memoir

Brennan Manning It has been over twenty years since the publication of The Ragamuffin Gospel, a book many claim as the shattering of God’s grace into their lives. Since that time, Brennan Manning has been dazzlingly faithful in preaching and writing variations on that singular theme – “Yes, Abba is very fond of you!” But today the crowds are gone and the lights are dim; the patches on his knees have faded. If he ever was a ragamuffin, truly it is now. In this, his final book, Brennan roves back through his past, honoring the lives of the people closest to him—family and friends who’ve known the saint and the sinner, the boy and the man. Far from a chronological timeline, these memories are witness to the truth of life by one who has lived it – All Is Grace.

T he A u th o r > Brennan Manning has spent the past forty years helping others experience the reality of God’s love and grace. It’s at the heart of everything he’s written and done. A recovering alcoholic and former Franciscan priest, his spiritual journey has taken him down a variety of paths. He has taught seminarians, spoken to packed arenas, lived in a cave and labored with the poor in Spain, and ministered to shrimpers in Alabama. Brennan is best known as the author of the contemporary classics, The Ragamuffin Gospel, Abba’s Child, Ruthless Trust, The Importance of Being Foolish, Patched Together, and The Furious Longing of God.

Indescribable

Encountering the Glory of God in the Beauty of the Universe

Louie Giglio & Matt Redman Putting this powerful message into print for the first time, visionary pastor Louie Giglio and songwriter Matt Redman team up to write a heart-stirring book about the mysteries of God’s creation. Indescribable takes readers on a journey through the vastness of outer space and into the depths of the soul. Modern science allows viewers to see farther into space than ever before, and every step draws them closer to the God who breathed each star into existence. In Indescribable, the authors intertwine devotional insights with remarkable scientific facts that awaken both mind and spirit. As Giglio and Redman write, God turns wonderers into worshipers. Above all, Indescribable is a call to worship—an invitation to know and be known by the God of all creation and to become more passionate worshipers of Jesus Christ.

T he A u th o r > Louie Giglio is a pastor, an award-winning author, and the founder of the Passion Conferences, through which he speaks to thousands of people around the world. Louie and his wife, Shelley, now reside outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Matt Redman is a songwriter and the author of several books, including Mirror Ball. Among his well-known songs are “Blessed Be the Name” and “The Heart of Worship.” Matt and his wife, Beth, have five children and live on the south coast of England.

BASIC Series

BASIC.Teaching Francis Chan

BASIC.Teaching is the fifth film in the 7-part BASIC short film series featuring Francis Chan. Why does it seem like reading the Bible is sometimes a duty rather than a privilege? Who is called to teach, and how can we know if we should follow their teaching? In BASIC.Teaching, Francis Chan challenges us to see the Bible as designed by God—as a holy book of vast riches and most importantly, the key to understanding how Jesus lived and how He wants us to live. Includes Personal Reflection Guide.

BASIC.Prayer Francis Chan

BASIC.Prayer is the sixth film in the 7-part BASIC short film series featuring Francis Chan. Is it possible that our prayers seem to go unanswered because we are praying out of a sense of obligation, or maybe for the wrong things? Are our prayers supposed to be a list of things we want, or are they really intended to be an ongoing dialogue with God about what He wants? In BASIC.Prayer, Francis Chan challenges us to align our prayers with God’s mission. In doing so, we might just see God answer our prayers in supernatural ways beyond our imagination. Includes Personal Reflection Guide.

BASIC. We Are Church A Small Group Experience

FRANCIS CHAN In this bold new interactive 9-session small group study, Francis Chan takes on the practical aspects of the church, distilling the reality of God’s design for the church into foundational truths that will challenge Christians to become the church described in Scripture. Features the final four BASIC films on DVD, each enhanced with two exclusive study sessions found only in this small group experience. • BASIC.Fellowship DVD • BASIC.Teaching DVD • BASIC.Prayer DVD • BASIC.Communion DVD • Six (6) We Are Church Follower’s Guides, corresponding to the interactive DVD studies • Resource DVD with video clips, trailers, and poster for church use, sermon outlines for pastors, tips for leaders, and more.

BASIC.Fear God What does the Bible mean when it tells us to fear God? Is it a kind of respect or reverence as many in the church seem to see it today, or is it really more of a paralyzing fear that can drive you to your knees in trembling? A clear understanding of what the Bible teaches can lead to a true fear of God, which can ultimately lead to the life we were intended to live. Includes Personal Reflection Guide. Retail: $14.99US/$16.50CAN ISBN: 978-1-4347-0076-6

BASIC.Follow Jesus What does Jesus mean when He tells us to follow Him? Are we supposed to just agree with what He says, or does He really mean we’re supposed to do the things He did and live the life He lived? Includes Personal Reflection Guide. Retail: $14.99US/$16.50CAN ISBN: 978-1-4347-0077-3

BASIC.Holy Spirit God gives each of us the gift of the Holy Spirit, our source of supernatural power. But today the church acts neither “super” nor “natural.” How do we join in with what the Spirit is doing? Maybe once we understand who the Holy Spirit is, the church can stop being so ordinary, and can start being the agents of change in the world that God designed us to be. Includes Personal Reflection Guide. Retail: $14.99US/$16.50CAN ISBN: 978-1-4347-0078-0

BASIC.Who Is God? A Small Group Experience

In this 7-session small group study, Francis Chan takes on the weighty topic of the Trinity, distilling the reality of the nature of God into foundational truths in a way that will benefit everyone.

BASIC.Fellowship

Features interactive, plug and play, DVD-driven studies on the following three topics: • BASIC.Fear God DVD • BASIC.Follow Jesus DVD • BASIC.Holy Spirit DVD • Six (6) Who Is God? Follower’s Guides, corresponding to the interactive DVD studies • Resource DVD with video clips for churches, sermon outlines for pastors, video trailers, posters, flyers, a leader’s guide, and more

God calls us to make disciples and teach others to obey His commands. But He doesn’t ask us to do this by ourselves. Of course, that’s why He created the Church. Ultimately, we should love each other so much and so well that others will see God. Is this a fellowship you want to be a part of? Are you willing to give up everything?

Ed’s Story Series Ed Dobson & FLANNEL

Suffering is everywhere and it changes us, for better or worse. Ed’s Story is our story. Diagnosed with ALS and given a short time to live, Ed wrestles with the issues suffering raises: worry, identity, forgiveness, gratitude, and healing. What emerges in this 7-film series is his discovery that there is always hope.

US: 800.323.7543

A faithful servant of God reveals how to experience a dynamic ministry by listening to God’s Spirit and praying for God’s intervention in people’s lives.

3: Be There

Blending biblical teaching and self-effacing humor, Peter describes how he discovered the gift of receiving a “word” from God—and the amazing healings of spirit, mind, and body that resulted. Now readers can learn how God’s Spirit can guide them personally, day by day, no matter what.

Ed Dobson, pastor emeritus of Calvary Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, serves as an advisory editor for Christianity Today and consulting editor for Leadership. He holds an earned doctorate from the University of Virginia, was named “Pastor of the Year” by Moody Bible Institute and is author of numerous books, including The Year of Living Like Jesus, and Prayers and Promises When Facing a Life-Threatening Illness.

Peter H. Lawrence

Peter Lawrence was a vicar in the Church of England for many years until his death in 2009. As he began to write this book about living fully in the Spirit’s healing power, he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Accepting God’s will with grace, he has left behind this moving account of the spiritual reality that radiated from him and touched many lives.

God’s Supernatural Intervention in Your Life

Sometimes we worry too much about the future. Ed stopped making plans more than two weeks out after his ALS diagnosis. Why? Tomorrow is not guaranteed—for any of us. When we worry about tomorrow, we often miss out on the beauty, richness, and fulfillment of today. Could living for today be what’s best for us, and could it even free us from the worries of tomorrow?

When those close to us suffer, it’s only natural to want to help. But what do you say when someone’s life falls apart and suffering becomes their reality? How can you show you care? The people who comforted Ed most were the ones who just showed up and didn’t say a word. Perhaps just being present can bring more comfort, peace, and a sense of God’s presence than words ever could.

Letters to a Young Pastor Calvin Miller

Beloved pastor and author Calvin Miller shares well-earned wisdom to prepare the next generation of church leaders to fulfill their calling—and maintain their sanity. Calvin Miller has long been one of the most creative voices in the church. As a best-selling author and poet he has enabled believers to flourish. As a pastor and educator he has equipped thousands to know and serve God more fully. And he has the battle scars to prove it. Miller acknowledges much has changed over his years of ministry, as we’ve moved from switchboards to smartphones and from bighaired evangelists to cigar-smoking emergents. But two truths remain the same: God is love and people are broken. In this honest, engaging, and humorous collection of letters, he encourages pastors to fight the good fight, stay the course, and keep their eyes on the Author and Finisher of the faith … to serve well every Sunday so they will never feel the urge to resign on Monday.

T he A u th o r > Calvin Miller was pastor of Westside Church, Omaha, Nebraska, for twenty-five years. After teaching seven years at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, he joined the faculty of Samford University’s Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Alabama, where he is professor of preaching and pastoral ministry. He is the author of more than forty books.

Hell Is Real: But I Hate to Admit It Brian Jones

Does hell matter? Pastor Brian Jones wants readers to know the truth. Jones believes that the reason most Christians don’t tell their friends about Jesus has nothing to do with not knowing how—it’s because they don’t think they need to. As Jones writes, the first four years he was a pastor, he didn’t believe in hell himself. Today, he shares his story of discovering the truth that hell exists—and why many Christians are afraid to believe in it. Hell Is Real motivates Christians who have grown complacent in their view of hell. Drawing on the teachings of Jesus, Jones leads readers into a head-on collision with apocalyptic urgency—the all-consuming, inspiring conviction that will overcome readers when they realize that hell is real and they can help save people from going there.

T he A u th o r > Brian Jones is the senior pastor at Christ’s Church of the Valley, an innovative community of faith he and his wife helped to start in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Brian is a graduate of Cincinnati Christian University (B.A.), Princeton Theological Seminary (M. Div.), and has served in leadership positions in churches for over twenty years. He is the author of Second Guessing God and Getting Rid of the Gorilla.

Unexpected Dismounts

A Novel

Book 2 in The Reluctant Prophet Series

Nancy Rue Allison Chamberlain thought she was doing everything God required of her—but as her journey continues in the second book of The Reluctant Prophet series, she might have to let go of everything she loves to follow the call. Allison is already taking care of five former prostitutes, trying to adopt an orphan, and helping a woman who’s been raped. Along the way, she experiences unexpected dismounts, as every Harley owner who risks the ride eventually does. A relative challenges the adoption. An influential businessman blocks her ministry. Her beloved Chief is seriously injured. A piece of her past adds even more turmoil. As she picks herself up again and again, Allison realizes that some are guilty of terrible wrongs—but everyone must be responsible for righting them.
