DEEPLY ROOTED

Knowing Self, Growing in God Christopher Maricle Spiritual growth sounds great, but what does it mean? There is something very grounding about trees. We understand how they grow and how dirt, seeds, water, and roots support the life and seasons of a tree. Using a tree as a metaphor, Christopher Maricle presents a model for spiritual growth that is easy to use and remember. Deeply Rooted borrows Catherine of Siena’s image of the soul as a tree and categorizes it into four parts: the garden, the soil and roots of the tree, the trunk and essence, and the fruits. The reader explores self-knowledge and knowledge of God and how these two work together to help the soul grow.

eBOOK $9.99 978-0-8358-1565-9

Can this be used as a small-group study?

Deeply Rooted is an ideal resource for a smallgroup experience. Each of the 8 chapters includes a summary, a prayer, and reflection questions. For group leaders, the book also includes helps and suggestions for leading a group, a small-group outline, and discussion questions for each chapter.

KINDLE $9.99 978-0-8358-1564-2

How can this book help?

People need to grow spiritually. In fact, God calls us to it. However, spiritual growth requires more than understanding. It requires practice and work — perhaps even a lifetime of both. Deeply Rooted uses the symbol of a tree as a simple, accessible way to explain spiritual growth that is rooted in personal, daily behavior, not just theory. This book is for Christians who want a new approach to spirituality.

GOD UNBOUND

Wisdom from Galatians for the Anxious Church Elaine A. Heath Discover the unbound God, who has never been limited by our theology or traditions. Today Christianity is undergoing similar challenges as the situations that confronted Paul and the Galatians. As many churches decline, congregations and pastors feel uncertain and anxious about how to continue their mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ. Elaine Heath extends an invitation to broaden our view of God by moving beyond the walls of buildings and programs to become a more diverse church than we have ever imagined. While deeply honoring tradition, she calls the church to boldly follow the Holy Spirit’s leadership into the future.

KINDLE $7.99 978-0-8358-1584-0

Why is this topic important for the church?

Many congregations and pastors are anxious and uncertain because of congregational decline related to culture shifts. This book explains the culture shifts and invites readers to notice where and how God is leading the church to cultivate missional wisdom during this time of unprecedented change.


The Way of Jesus Frank Rogers Jr.

Learn how to love as Jesus loved. Jesus was a spiritual teacher who demonstrated personal and social transformation. Jesus’ Way was a spirituality of radical compassion. He taught how to love and be loved by an extravagantly compassionate God; how to cultivate love for ourselves; and how to love our neighbors by extending love to the outcasts, the offensive, and even our enemies. Expanding on the foundation of Practicing Compassion, Rogers explains how to practice compassion in a world ravaged by violence, fear, and reactivity. He describes the way Jesus prepared his disciples to transform hardened hearts into compassionate hearts.

If Jesus were to create a school of compassion, this book could serve as an introductory text. It describes the spiritual and social practices by which we become more compassionate—in relation to God, ourselves, and the people in our lives.

Can this be used as a small-group study?

This 6-week small-group experience gives perspective on mercy, kindness, and caring for one another that trains us to pay attention, understand empathically, love with connection, sense the sacredness, and embody new life. The study includes a leader’s guide, inspiring stories and examples of compassion in practice, and exercises to help you understand and apply compassion in your daily life.

THE UPPER ROOM DISCIPLINES 2017 A Book of Daily Devotions

Simple read. Deep thought. Scripture based. As we read, study, and pray with others each day, we can… devote ourselves more fully to steady growth in love of God and neighbor. Our repeated listening for the divine and the deepest desires of our neighbors can empower us to discern God’s work in this noisy world. —Shawn Bakker, from the Foreword Many Christians identify daily time spent with God as their most valuable spiritual habit. The short yet thoughtful meditations in The Upper Room Disciplines can help you feel God’s presence and strengthen your faith. Fifty-three writers share insights on scripture and guide you to spend time reflecting on God’s messages for you. The scripture for Disciplines comes from the Revised Common Lectionary, which runs on a three-year cycle and each week normally contains an Old Testament reading, a psalm, and a New Testament reading.

KINDLE $9.99 978-0-8358-1553-6

As surely as your body needs food and water, your spirit needs daily nourishment with scripture. Reading scripture every day keeps your relationship with God fresh and alive. The practice of setting aside a regular time to spend with God— to read scripture, pray, and meditate on God’s message—is one of the most meaningful daily disciplines Christians can undertake.


PRAYING THROUGH CANCER AVAILABLE OCTOBER 2016

Our first reaction when the doctor says it’s cancer: Why me? A cancer diagnosis is a traumatic, overwhelming event. So many decisions must be made, usually in a short amount of time. You may be making decisions that will have long-term effects on your life, while also battling shock, information overload, fear, and anxiety. As the husband of a breast cancer survivor, Todd Outcalt understands the many emotions cancer patients experience. Praying through Cancer provides four weeks of Bible readings, personal stories, and prayer to encourage and inspire you. Normally it takes 28 consecutive days to create a habit. The 28 Days of Prayer series follows this same concept. Find strength, wisdom, courage, and hope through these 28 days of prayer. PAPERBACK $7.99 978-0-8358-1575-8

EBOOK $5.99 978-0-8358-1577-2

Can this be used as a small-group study?

Although designed primarily as a personal prayer guide, this book can also be used for group study. Reflection questions at the back of the book provide helpful conversation starters for cancer support groups, friends, and family members. Each reading includes a Bible passage, a focal verse, a devotion, and a prayer.

KINDLE $5.99 978-0-8358-1576-5

How can this book help?

As congregations we do not always have answers for every circumstance, but we can be present and available to those in need. This book is a practical tool to offer prayer, reflection, and devotion over a 4-week period. It provides an uplifting connection with God to help readers face their situation with faith and hope. It addresses questions that cancer patients frequently ask themselves such as: What does this experience mean? How will cancer change me? What is my purpose? What can I learn from dealing with cancer? What can I offer others? The author also shares wisdom from his pastoral counseling and personal experience.

EVERY DAY GOD SENDS SIGNALS. DO YOU NOTICE THEM?

8

The spiritual life is often compared to a race. Pastor Rob Fuquay sees a parallel between the flags used in auto racing and the signals God sends us in our fast-paced lives. The purpose of Take the Flag is not to turn readers into race fans, but to help them become stronger disciples of Jesus Christ by paying attention to the signals God gives us each day. In this Bible-based, 7-week churchwide series, Fuquay uses the flags from auto racing as a way to discuss different aspects of our life of faith. This series will captivate your congregation and engage them in an exciting spiritual growth adventure.

For more details, visit RobFuquay.com/Take-the-Flag.


This bold, imaginative 7-week study helps you understand God’s signals through the fast-paced world of auto racing. Far-fetched? Not when you consider that the apostle Paul wrote about “the race of life.” As a leader you know the challenge of making biblical teachings easy to understand. This new series is designed to be both easy to use and easy to understand for all age levels of your congregation.

WHY THIS JUBILEE?

Music is a powerful and unforgettable way to celebrate the joy of Advent. Can you imagine Advent without “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”? How about Christmas without carols like “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” “Silent Night,” and “Joy to the World”? In 24 reflections on well-known carols and Christmas songs, James Howell explores the birth of Jesus. He ponders the meaning of certain phrases from these songs and relates them to our daily lives. The four weeks of devotions are arranged by topic: The Place, The Men (Joseph, shepherds, magi), The Mother, and The Child. A guide for weekly discussion is included.

WORSHIP IN LIGHT OF THE CROSS

Meditations for Lent John Indermark

How can the cross shed light on what we do in worship and why? Many of the world’s greatest cathedrals are built in the shape of a cross. When people enter to worship, they literally enter into the cross. Whenever we gather as a community of faith, we remember Jesus’ death and resurrection and learn how to follow Jesus, even on the road to the cross. In this study for Lent, you are invited to worship through the cross. Indermark uses traditional elements of corporate worship to guide us through our Lenten study: o Gathering: Forming Community o Invocation: Attending to the Holy o Confession: Honest to God o Proclamation: Gospel as Truth-Telling o Creed: Owning the Faith o Response: Stepping Out o Sacrament: Recognizing God PAPERBACK $12.99 978-0-8358-1572-7

LENT 2017

Can this be used as a small-group study?

20

KINDLE $9.99 978-0-8358-1573-4

This 6-week study incorporates scripture and reflections that directly address Good Friday and the cross. Each reading closes with a suggestion for reflection. The book includes a Leader’s Guide for small-group study from Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday. Among the ideas is the suggestion to create a weekly Worship Center to emphasize each week’s theme.

Why is this topic important for the church?

Many people ask why we worship the way we do. This book explains the Christian tradition and components of worship and explores the link between the Lenten journey and the repercussions of the cross. This book bids you to discover in cross-formed worship what it means to be a disciple of the Christ we confess is not only risen but was crucified.

PREPARE THE WAY

Cultivating a Heart for God in Advent Pamela C. Hawkins How do you prepare for Advent? We prepare our city streets and buildings, our homes and workspaces for Christmas. But sometimes Advent can slip away from us before we can prepare our hearts. In this 4-week study and prayer book, Pamela Hawkins invites us to prepare our hearts through guided prayer, readings from Isaiah and Matthew, as well as brief reflections on four scriptural themes: Peace, Justice, Fearlessness, and Faithfulness.
