PERMANENT VERTIGO

How Relationships Cause Us to Question Our Own Sanity and God’s Goodness joy eggerichs

Through humorous stories and raw honesty, Joy Eggerichs compares relationships to a dizzying spell of vertigo—offering relational and biblical truths, and giving voice to the disillusionment that stems from relational wounds. Whether single, married, or navigating that bizarre ritual known as “dating,” we all face moments that leave us reeling, even doubting God’s goodness. It’s called relational vertigo—and this book is Joy’s hilarious, honest search for the cure. Joy’s charming first-person stories of her journey of faith, family, and dating read like hanging out with a close friend. Leaning into the pain—and humor—of her past relationships, Joy shows readers that they aren’t alone … and how they can move toward God when relational vertigo strikes.

THE AUTHOR Joy Eggerichs is director of Love & Respect Now (www.LoveandRespectNow.com), a relationship ministry focused on 18-35 year olds that is part of her father’s ministry Love and Respect. She graduated from Westmont College, and has since studied at Regent College and Western Seminary. A gifted speaker, blogger, and researcher, Joy speaks at colleges and universities, and events such as Catalyst and AACC. She resides in Portland, Oregon.

A FAREWELL TO MARS

An Evangelical Pastor’s Journey Toward the Biblical Gospel of Peace brian zahnd

One pastor’s move from unquestioning nationalism to the gospel of peace. Jesus taught that peace is the radical reality of the kingdom of God. But are we bringing a message of peace to this world? Author and pastor Brian Zahnd walks readers through his own journey from embracing violence to pronouncing peace, using Scripture, prayer, study, and reflection. From the prophecies of Isaiah to the teachings of the Prince of Peace Himself, Scripture unveils a God who desires peace for His people. God’s kingdom would not be managed and defended by wars, violence, and vengeance. This kingdom rises up out of the rich soil of sacrifice and surrender. Brian Zahnd challenges readers to follow the teachings of Jesus, just as we strive to follow the person of Jesus.

THE AUTHOR Brian Zahnd is the founder and lead pastor of Word of Life Church, a nondenominational congregation in St. Joseph, Missouri. Brian is a passionate reader of theology and philosophy, an avid hiker and mountain climber, and an authority on all things Bob Dylan. Brian and his wife, Peri, have three adult sons and three grandchildren.

LOVE WELL

Living Life Unrehearsed and Unstuck jamie george

Love Well exposes the cycle of paralyzing shame, fear, and hopelessness that plagues so many. Through deeply personal stories, Jamie George reveals how to start moving forward toward hope and freedom. Personally, he also knows what it’s like to struggle and feel stuck. Outwardly successful, he struggled privately with doubt over his new calling and his downwardly spiraling marriage. In time, he learned what it meant to become an apprentice in the art of unrehearsed living. God showed him how to embrace a journey of subtraction—letting go of shame, regret, and all that bogged him down to allow space for the deeper rhythms of relationship and faith. Love Well is a revolutionary book that invites readers to make the shift and start moving forward—toward God, others, and life!

THE AUTHOR Jamie George founded The Journey Church in Franklin, Tennessee in 2006 as a safe haven for the “religiously wounded.” Acclaimed worship band All Sons & Daughters was birthed in this faith community. In addition to writing Love Well, George is coauthoring a curriculum with New York Times bestselling novelist Karen Kingsbury. Jamie lives with his wife and four children in and serves the community of Franklin, Tennessee.

CHARIS

God’s Scandalous Grace for Us preston sprinkle

Take a journey into Charis—where harlots are hugged, enemies are enjoyed, and really bad people receive really good things from a Creator who stubbornly delights in undelightful people. 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. Charis 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 Preston 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.

THE AUTHOR Preston Sprinkle, PhD, MDiv teaches Biblical Studies at Eternity Bible College in Simi Valley, California. He coauthored the New York Times Bestselling Erasing Hell with Francis Chan and is the author of the recently published Fight: A Christian Case for Non-Violence. He resides in California, along with his wife and four children.

ONE WAY LOVE DVD STUDY RESOURCE tullian tchividjian

Bestselling author Tullian Tchividjian ushers viewers and small groups into a fresh encounter with God’s inexhaustible grace on this 6-session DVD companion study to One Way Love. Real life is long on law and short on grace. We’re supposed to have a stable marriage, successful children, and a certain quality of life. The guilt, anxiety, and uncertainty of daily life are heavy burdens for all. In this DVD study resource, Tchividjian shows that Christianity is not about good people getting better. Rather, it is good news for bad people coping with their failure to be good. Tchividjian calls the church to abandon our play-it-safe religion and to embrace God’s unflinching grace. Each 10-15 minute session will include teaching, as well as interviews with individuals who have experienced this freedom. This resource is ideal for small groups and individuals seeking to go deeper with the biblical message of One Way Love.

THE AUTHOR Tullian Tchividjian is the pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a seminary professor, and a grandson of Billy and Ruth Graham. He is also the founder of LIBERATE—a content ministry devoted to connecting God’s inexhaustible grace to an exhausted world through books, curriculum, media, music, and an annual conference. The author of numerous articles and books, including One Way Love, Jesus + Nothing = Everything, and Glorious Ruin, Tchividjian speaks at conferences around the world. He and his wife, Kim, have three children.

THE PASTOR’S KID Finding Your Own Faith and Identity barnabas piper

Pastor’s children face unique challenges and identity struggles. The son of pastor and bestselling author John Piper addresses these issues candidly, offering hope for PKs, their pastors/ fathers, and their churches. Barnabas Piper has experienced the challenges of being a PK firsthand. In The Pastor’s Kid, he addresses the pervasive assumptions, identity issues, and accelerated scrutiny PKs face. Additional sections are aimed at the PK’s pastor/father and church body. But more than just stating the problems – he shares the one thing a PK needs above all else (as do their pastor/father and church) to live in true freedom and wholeness. With empathy, humor, and passion, this book courageously addresses one of the most under-the-radar issues affecting almost every church and pastor, and their children.

THE AUTHOR Barnabas Piper is a PK, the son of well-known pastor John Piper. He writes for World Magazine at WorldMag.com, blogs at BarnabasPiper.com, and cohosts the podcast What Did They Say Now – a conversation about life and faith (minus the pat answers).

Matt Chandler on Philippians Using Paul’s radical letter to the Philippians as his road map, Matt Chandler forsakes the trendy to invite readers into an authentic Christian maturity. The short book of Philippians is one of the most quoted in the Bible, yet Paul wrote it not for popular sound bites but to paint a picture of mature Christian faith. While many give their lives to Jesus, few then go on to live a life of truly vibrant faith. ISBN 978-1-4347-0685-0 | eISBN 978-0-7814-1088-5 Price $17.99 | Hardcover with jacket | Available Now
