God’s vision is for each person to grow spiritually toward a life where the Spirit flows through them like a river. The Me I Want to Be guides readers through the great task and joy of becoming God’s best version of ourselves. Bestselling author John Ortberg uses Scripture to confirm God’s vision for his creation and reassure readers that this is God’s project, not our own. Simply follow his lead and stay on task—not always easy for real people living in the real world. But this straightforward guide provides the inspiration and the tools people need for sidestepping the barriers they encounter. It also gives clear, practical instructions for building the skills and practices necessary for sustained spiritual growth. The Me I Want to Be resonates with Christians who are young or old, new or seasoned. It’s the ideal guide for anyone who longs to be spiritually mature, fully alive, and more closely aligned with God’s perfect vision.

Know Doubt The Importance of Embracing Uncertainty in Your Faith John Ortberg

Join pastor and bestselling author John Ortberg on a journey that explores the contours of faith and doubt. Readers will learn to treat doubt not so much as a dividing line that separates ­people but more as a razor’s edge that runs through every human soul. We all doubt. We all believe. We all hope. (Previously published as Faith & Doubt.)

In this refreshingly candid look at what it takes to live a life of faith, John Ortberg takes an honest look at the misgivings and uncertainties that often shake our beliefs as we navigate through the highs and lows of life. Reflecting on his own bouts with doubt and uncertainty, Ortberg shares with readers his discovery that, rather than being a contradiction in terms, doubt and faith may be very much a part of each other. He challenges readers to consider how doubt can motivate us to study and learn, how questioning expands our understanding, and how uncertainty can lead to trust. These challenges point us toward the relief of being totally honest. The right kind of doubt can be a gift—an actiongenerating truth that actually allows us to deepen our faith and intimacy with God. Written to challenge, comfort, and inspire readers, Know Doubt reveals uncertainty as a cause for celebration.

In this thought-provoking look at what’s really important in life, John Ortberg uses games as a metaphor to help us recognize and play for life’s real prize: being rich toward God. Told with humor and wisdom by this bestselling author, pastor, and game-strategist, When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box reminds us that everything on earth belongs to God, and everything we “win” is just on loan. Being Master of the Board is not the point; playing by God’s rules is. Ortberg makes sure we understand the object of the game, but he also walks us through the set-up, the rules, the strategies, and choosing the right trophies. This book is for those who want to sort out what’s fleeting and what’s permanent in God’s kingdom. It’s the perfect playbook for individuals or groups interested in considering life’s true priorities and arranging their lives with eternal prizes in mind.

In her moving spiritual memoir, Mary DeMuth traces the winding path of “thin places” in her life—places where she experienced longing and healing more intensely than before. As DeMuth writes, “Thin places are snatches of holy ground, tucked into the corners of our world, where we might just catch a glimpse of eternity. They are aha moments, beautiful realizations, when the Son of God bursts through the hazy fog of our monotony and shines on us afresh.” From losing her earthly father to discovering a heavenly Father who never leaves, from singing Olivia NewtonJohn songs to the sky to worshiping God under a French sun, from surviving abuse as a latchkey kid to experiencing the joy of mothering three children, DeMuth’s story calls readers to a deeper understanding of their own story. With unusual spiritual wisdom, she looks for God in the past so that she might experience him more profoundly in the present. Her powerful words invite readers to know God in a new way— a God ready to break through any ordinary day or extraordinary pain and offer a glimpse of eternity.

Author and speaker Mary E. DeMuth helps ­people turn their trials to triumph. Her books include Ordinary Mom, Extraordinary God, Building the Chris­tian Family You Never Had, Watching the Tree Limbs, Wishing on Dandelions, Authentic Parenting in a Postmodern Culture, Daisy Chain, and Thin Places.

Every Chris­tian desires to follow the Bible. But many of the things the Bible teaches— such as its instructions on how to treat slaves or its direction to sell everything one owns— seem to have little relevance to modern life. Picking and choosing what applies today leaves many readers frustrated and confused. Is it possible that Chris­tians are asking the wrong question of Scripture? Ron Martoia suggests that the narrative sweep of the Bible is lost when it is reduced to quips and maxims. Faithfulness to the text requires faithfulness to its narrative form. Reflecting a high view of Scripture and a profound belief in its power to change lives, Martoia helps readers read the Bible so that its story shapes their own stories. In this new light, readers can move beyond the confusion about what is true today and what is “outdated.” With a passion for seeing ­people experience revolutionary change in their spiritual lives, Martoia shows readers how to look at the big picture of the Bible. As they will soon find out, the view is incredible.

Ron Martoia, who received his doctorate from Fuller Theological Seminary, is a transformational architect. His passion is helping ­people and the organisms they serve to design, build, and experience revolutionary change. Over the last four years, Ron has spoken to over 25,000 leaders in conference settings. The author of Transformational Architecture, Static, and Morph, Ron has also written for Relevant, Leadership Journal, Rev!, among others. He is the founder of Velocityculture.com, which provides consulting, distance staffing, coaching, and learning communities, and lives in Jackson, Michigan.

Mingling personal anecdotes with scriptural wisdom, author and pastor Murray Andrew Pura explores the many ways water is portrayed in the Bible. From creation—when the earth was formed from water—to its possession by Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for their flocks. From the exodus and the parting of the Red Sea to the time of the prophet Elisha and the healing of Namaan the Syrian in the Jordan River. From the rise of the kingdom under David to the fall of the kingdom and Israel’s exile by the waters of Babylon. In all these dramatic events, and many more, Pura demonstrates how the physical and symbolic representation of water in ancient Scripture offers modern Chris­tians new insights about following Christ. Pura also examines how water was used in Jesus’ ministry: Jesus was baptized in water, walked on water, turned water into wine, and healed with water. Understanding the symbolism of water is key to understanding Scripture. Readers will meditate on:

• The rivers of Babylon and their waters of darkness . . . How do we handle tragedy and suffering? • Streams in the desert and the waters of rejuvenation . . . What do we do when our spiritual lives are dry? • And much, much more This refreshing new book will help readers discover the deeper meanings of water in Scripture and better understand the life-giving power of a Chris­tian life.

On December 26, 2005, Walter Wangerin Jr. felt a lump in his neck. Doctors confirmed his fears: Wangerin had lung cancer. But a writer is always a writer. And so from one afternoon to another, often crouched in the radiologist’s chair, Wangerin wrote letters. He wrote about confronting his mortality, about living with the messiness of undone tasks and bodily weakness. He wrote about the medical procedures he endured, the wild mood swings that unbalanced his days, and the fragilities and strengths of the relationships that surrounded him. He sent each letter to an intimate community of friends and family, inviting them into the intense days of treatment and the shocking reality of eternal hope. Letters from the Land of Cancer is made up of these writings. Interspersed within the letters are Wangerin’s eloquent meditations derived from his pastoral experiences with the faithful passage of death to life. As Wangerin writes, “Here is the story which must ultimately embrace every living body, every physical person. Here, too, is the

story in which our faith in Christ most can shine.” Seldom has the great adventure of life and death been so beautifully and creatively presented. Walter Wangerin Jr. is widely recognized as one of the most gifted writers writing today on the issues of faith and spirituality. Starting with the renowned Book of the Dun Cow, Wangerin’s writing career has encompassed most every genre: fiction, essay, short story, children’s story, meditation, and biblical exposition. His writing voice is immediately recognizable, and his fans number in the hundreds of thousands. The author of over forty books, Wangerin has won the National Book Award, New York Times Best Children’s Book of the Year Award, and several Gold Medallions, including best-fiction awards for both The Book of God and Paul: A Novel. He lives in Valparaiso, Indiana, where he is writer-in-residence at Valparaiso University and holds the Jochum Chair.

Love Mercy A Mother and Daughter’s Journey from the American Dream to the Kingdom of God Lisa Samson and Ty Samson

Love Mercy confronts us directly with the AIDS crisis in Africa — in particular Swaziland, which has the highest AIDS rate in the world (over 36% of all adults). Lisa and her daughter share the questions they encountered on their journey and tell the stories of those they met along the way — from the children themselves, to adult AIDS victims, to the compassionate mercy-givers who seek every day to alleviate their suffering.

Novelist Lisa Samson and her eighteen-year-old daughter, Ty, originally traveled to Africa to minister to a population devastated by HIV/AIDS and then write a book about their experience. They were woefully naïve when they arrived in Africa and profoundly changed when they returned to the United States. Lisa and Ty considered themselves “average” Chris­tians with a heart for those in need. Their trip to Africa, they assumed, would be missional, merciful, giving. However, as mother and daughter are confronted with incidents of child prostitution, preventable illness, poverty, oppression, abuse, and death so prevalent it leaves no time to mourn, their journey takes a decidedly different tack. They travel inward, asking some hard questions and discovering some difficult truths that shake their Chris­tian complacency to the core.

Offering two unique perspectives, Lisa and Ty write about smiles in a place of aching sadness, mercy in a place of heart-wrenching poverty, and hope in a place where the average life expectancy is thirty-two years of age. Ultimately, Love Mercy is a chronicle of two ­people transformed by God in ways, and in places, they never expected. Lisa Samson is the author of over twenty books, including the

Christy award-winning novel Songbird. Her latest novel, Quaker Summer, was given a starred review in Publishers Weekly. She has recently coauthored a book with her husband, Will, a call for justice and compassion in our suburbs, entitled Justice in the Burbs.

Ty Samson loves art, literature, playing upright bass, and baking bread. Presently, she’s serving women and children in Sarah’s Place, a resource center and early education program in Appalachia.

Picking Dandelions A Search for Eden among Life’s Weeds Sarah Cunningham

Sarah Cunningham offers readers an engaging, honest conversation through personal stories on what it means to have a relationship with God while balancing the realities of adulthood and youthful idealism.

February 2010 USD $14.99 Softcover ISBN: 9780310292470 RELIGION / Chris­tian Life / General Trim: 5-1/2 x 8 (203 x 135 mm) Pages: 224 Carton Qty: 60 Selling Territory: World UK Rights: Zondervan

In this warm and witty memoir, Sarah Cunningham shares more than just a chronicle of the ­people and experiences of her life. Each story she recounts illustrates her growing understanding of God’s kingdom, true faith, and reconciliation. The daughter of a Baptist minister, Cunningham had always identified herself as a Chris­tian and never entertained a reason to change. But challenges and change, the author discovers, are the stuff and substance of the life God gave her. As her own stories unfold, Cunningham underscores themes of change using vivid imagery. Whether she’s describing her life as a child living next to a cemetery, or her grandmother’s adjustments to life as an English “war bride” after WWII, the author evokes carefully crafted pictures of growth and renewal, planting and reaping, greenery and weeds—tying it all to heaven and the life God wants for her and her readers.

Picking Dandelions is a candid and personal account of outgrowing laissez-faire Chris­tian­ity, moving into mature faith, and realizing that a God-following person is a changing person. Discerning readers just might follow suit. Sarah Raymond Cunningham, a graduate from Spring Arbor, teaches high school English and is a part of the founding vision team of Living Water Community Church, a neighborhoodbased Free Methodist church planted in late 2006. The author of Dear Church, Sarah also contributed to the Meditations Bible, unchristian, and Out of the Ooze. She lives with her husband, Chuck, her youngest brother, John, and their manic Jack Russell, Wrigley, in Jackson, Michigan.

Will Jesus Buy Me a Double-Wide? (‘Cause I Need More Room for My Plasma TV) Karen Spears Zacharias

Destined to be a “word-of-mouth” phenomenon because the author’s stories will connect with a broad audience of Chris­tians who are tired and fed up with the “Cash and Cadillac” Gospel.

Is the Chris­tian life about our happiness and comfort? In this thought-provoking meditation on culture, prosperity, and faith, journalist Karen Spears Zacharias looks at the questions of exactly how happy and rich God wants us to be. We have this notion that God owes us better than we’ve gotten. Why else would we wait in line for hours, buying books about how to become rich, God’s way? We treat God like a slot machine, yanking on the prayer cable, hoping that the triple 7’s will appear. Zacharias believes that Chris­tians have been paying good money for a false doctrine—the Cash and Cadillac Gospel. With humor and wit, Zacharias unpacks story after story of those who use the name of God as a means to living their own “good life,” as well as some unlikely folks who have found that their faith has led them to a different understanding of wealth. Zacharias offers another meditation on culture and faith on the heels of her provocative book, Where’s Your Jesus Now?

Karen Spears Zacharias had her first kiss in a trailer, smoked her first and last cigarette in a trailer, asked Jesus into her heart on bended knee in a trailer, fell madly in love in a trailer (a ­couple of different times), and gave birth to her firstborn child in a trailer. She and her husband, Tim, plan to raise any grandchildren in a double-wide trailer with a plasma TV on an acre of land in Point Clear, Alabama.

Busy? Yes. Fruitful? No. Many readers lead frenzied lives—but are going nowhere. Every day they ask, How can I change the world when the problems are so great? How can I express my true self when the dry details of the day take over? How do I get my spiritual life unstuck? Paul Richardson draws on stories from his life as a missionary in the world’s largest Muslim country to explore what causes ­people to be deactivated—pinned down under hopelessness, apathy, and personal disappointment. Richardson reminds readers that God the Creator designed them to engage the complexities of their world with creative solutions. In fact, the greater the resistance they face in their lives, the greater creative energy God gives them to respond. Rather than offering a series of how-to steps, Richardson offers a vision of what a Spirit-fueled life looks like — a vision that sees Chris­tian­ity as a fluid, innovative call to love. Readers will come away with a deeper awareness of their dreams, a clearer hope for those who seem hopeless, and a richer understanding of how God created them to live.

Paul Richardson was born and raised in a village carved

out of the jungle in Dutch New Guinea, where his parents were missionaries. With a bachelor’s degree in history and a master’s degree in educational leadership, Richardson is part of a group creating a network of state-of-the-art Chris­tian schools in some of the most impoverished environments on earth. He also works with orphanages and youth centers specially designed to be catalysts of hope. Richardson lives in southeast Asia with his wife, Cyndi, and their three children.

Sometimes, we fall in love on mission trips even though we know we’ll break up when we get back.

At Samford he studied journalism, met his wife, had two daughters and ended up in Alpharetta, Georgia. He’s spent the last 11 years writing for clients ranging from mega churches like the one he attends, North Point Community Church, to mega brands like Home Depot. Then, things got funny. On a whim, he started a satirical blog called www.stuffchristianslike.net. Jonathan hoped this reaction to the popular site stuffwhitepeoplelike would start dialog about how silly it is to slap a God-spin on popular secular ideas. Jonathan told 100 friends.

Chris­tian parents are not exempt from the struggle and heartbreak caused by rebellious children.

For the first time, read the rest of the story that inspired the original edition of this book. The Hurting Parent takes a realistic approach to the problems young ­people face today—the peer pressure they face daily, the easy access to drugs and alcohol, the cultural influences that pull them from their family’s faith. The Lewises acknowledge there are no simple formulas or simple answers. But the biblical insight, emotional understanding, and practical encouragement they offer will be life-changing. Written by a hurting parent for other hurting parents, this book, by ministering to hundreds of thousands of families over the past 30 years, has earned a prominent spot

not only on the personal bookshelves of countless parents and their family and friends, but also on the professional shelves of pastors, youth ministers, and Chris­tian counselors. Margie Lewis is a graduate of Asbury College and Asbury Theological Seminary. She is a widow who has three sons, nine grandchildren, and lives in Wilmore, Kentucky. Thirty years after The Hurting Parent’s first publication, she still receives regular feedback from hurting parents who have read and appreciated this book. Gregg Lewis is an award-winning author or coauthor of

more than fifty books, including Take the Risk and The Big Picture with Dr. Ben Carson, Tom Landry: An Autobiography, Forgiving the Dead Man Walking with Debbie Morris, Jesus M.D., and Safe at Home.

What causes some ­people—in spite of incredible challenges—to be more alive and content than others? When Shane Stanford discovered he was HIV positive at the age of sixteen, he knew he had a choice: he could feel sorry for himself, or he could live as passionately and boldly as possible. Now, more than twenty years later, Stanford speaks nationwide about what it means to turn a positive diagnosis—or any difficult circumstance—into an opportunity for positive living. Written for those who want to appreciate life to the fullest, A Positive Life reveals nine basic yet powerful lessons for living well. What does it mean to be satisfied with never being satisfied? Why is simplicity a key to finding joy? Most importantly, what does it look like to live, laugh, and love in community as Jesus did—with dirty hands and feet and a love of adventure? Stanford reminds readers that even struggles offer glimpses of grace. Choosing how to live out that grace

is the key to making life matter—and to being more alive than ever before. Shane Stanford is the senior pastor of Gulf Breeze United Methodist Church, a congregation with a weekly worship average of over 2,500, and the host of The United Methodist Hour, a television ministry broadcast into 30 million homes weekly. Shane is the author of five books including When God Disappears and The Seven Next Words of Christ and travels frequently to share his story and faith as an HIV-positive hemophiliac.

In the tradition of the bestselling book The One-Minute Manager, authors Ken Blanchard and fast-food entrepreneur S. Truett Cathy of Chick-fil-A® restaurants present a parable that demonstrates the virtues of generosity. It’s the story of a meeting between The Broker—a young man on his way up the corporate ladder who has the illusion of success, yet deep inside feels insignificant—and The Executive—the CEO of a very large and successful company, who claims the greatest joy in his life is his ability to give to others. Thinking he might get a competitive edge by meeting with The Executive, The Broker’s worldview is turned upside down as he talks to The Executive and hears the principles that form his life. The Generosity Factor™ provides a unique twist on what it means to truly succeed in business, at home, and in life.

Ken Blanchard is the coauthor of a number of bestselling

books, including The One-Minute Manager, which has sold more than 9 million copies. He is a much-sought-after consultant and speaker whose company trains Fortune 500 companies around the world on the principles of management.

Authors Mike and Danae Yankoski have written just what Chris­tians need to integrate compassion and justice into their lives. “Our hope,” they write, “is that God will work through this book . . . to help direct your life so that you can act on tangible concern for neighbors in need, both globally and locally. That’s the prayer knit into every sentence, every word, of Zealous Love.” Zealous Love introduces eight of the world’s most pressing challenges: hunger, unclean water, HIV/AIDS, creation degradation, lack of education, economic inequality, refugees, and human trafficking. But it does more than educate. It provides real, practical, do-able steps anyone can take to help make a difference.

Mike and Danae Yankoski met while doing undergradu-

ate work at Westmont College and currently live in Oregon. They are both passionate about reading well-written books, drinking steaming mugs of tea, fireplaces, dark chocolate, hiking and backpacking in the mountains, traveling and becoming acquainted with ­people of different cultures, substantive conversations, and their new black lab puppy, Elliott. Mike is the author of Under the Overpass and Danae is the coauthor with Francis Chan of Crazy Love.

Do you wonder if your life makes a difference in this world? Do you think you should be a clone of Mother Teresa—or at least the woman down the street? The truth is, God created each of us as an original. Award-winning author and marriage and family therapist Dr. Leslie Parrott helps women understand that they are already making a difference whether they know it or not. And the more they understand the difference they are making, the bigger that difference can be. Women will see that the random fragments of their life—whether it’s doing laundry, dashing to the store, tending to either their kids or a full-time job (or both)—mean something. The random pieces of their lives hold great potential for making a profound difference. Using her skills as a therapist and sharing stories from her own personal journey, Leslie helps women recognize and celebrate the unique contribution God designed for their lives.

Dr. Leslie Parrott is a marriage and family therapist and

codirector with her husband, Dr. Les Parrott, of the Center for Relationship Development at Seattle Pacific University.

Chase Ryan and Keith Ellison set out to change the world with their films—and they are finally seeing their dreams come true. The dedicated producers are deep in negotiations with America’s top young movie star to play the lead in their next inspirational production. But the actor is linked to a studio whose brass will take any measures to see that their mega-million-dollar star doesn’t take the part. In the meantime, the friends tackle another project that puts them and their assistant, Kendall Adams, on location in Arizona; far from their homes and the ­people who matter most to them. Chase finds himself on one side of fame—and temptation—with his wife and two daughters on the other. Back in Indiana, a crisis hits Keith’s daughter, Andi, and Keith feels helpless to respond. Will the producers keep the passion they had at the start of their filmmaking—and will there be enough passion left over for their families? Or has their quest to change American culture become nothing more than a quest for fame?

Adventurous and fun-loving Becca Daniels loves the rush of new experiences and is constantly pushing the envelope—trying everything from extreme sports, to wild hair colors, to skydiving. So when a broken leg grounds her temporarily, Becca doesn’t take the interruption well. Grumpy, restless, and at loose ends, Becca bristles one day when some of her Getaway Girls Book Club friends tease her about being commitment-phobic. To prove them wrong, Becca impulsively promises to accept a date with the next guy who asks her out; and to date him for three months or twenty-five dates—whichever comes first. Unfortunately, the first invitation comes from Ben—too “churchy” and definitely not Becca’s type. Determined to win the bet, however, the two embark on a hilarious series of dates that plunge the outspoken, purple-haired Becca into a sea of church potlucks and prayer meetings. Ultimately, the dating experiment opens Becca’s eyes to a new perspective on her life’s purpose and a new understanding of who’s directing her path—an epiphany that could lead to her biggest adventure yet.

After a difficult childhood, Kim has built a successful life for herself, but she’d leave it all if it meant being rid of the guilt she harbors over a tragic mistake she made years ago. When she meets Rick, she finds everything she needs— including a way to pay for her sins every time he hits her. Kim and Rick’s new neighbor, Joshua, knows more than Kim realizes about Rick’s abusive behavior, but Joshua has battles of his own to fight. Soon to intersect Kim’s and Rick’s lives is Debbie, who has saved countless women from abuse through the shelter she runs but might be as desperate for love as the women she serves. Meanwhile, as Rick’s wrath extends to their baby, Kim must decide if her penance is more important than protecting that innocent life—and if she should dare leave Rick when he has the power to bring her hidden crime to light. A gripping, gritty novel, The Weight of Shadows explores how the risks we take for those we love can touch the lives of others forever.

In these two bestselling classics, well-loved author Adrian Plass takes readers on a rollicking tour of the “Sacred Diarist’s” slightly surreal world. From the exuberant Andromeda Veal to the loony, loveable Leonard Thynn, the whole gang appears in their full glory, bound for misadventure, loads of fun, and the occasional insight neatly camouflaged as side-splitting humour. The Horizontal Epistles of Andromeda Veal Budding young Chris­tian feminist Andromeda Veal has broken her femur and now lies in traction. But she’s still entirely capable of composing correspondence to such individuals as Margaret Thatcher and God. And of responding in her own inimitable style to the letters she receives from Adrian’s wife and fellow churchgoers. The Theatrical Tapes of Leonard Thynn The single, lateral-thinking, and probably alcoholic Leonard Thynn takes it upon himself to document the rehearsals of the church play. And if suffering produces character, Plass, the chair of the play, ought to reap integrity by the truckload as he contends with the likes of

Thynn, Percy Brain, Victoria Flushpool, Vernon Rawlings and other unforgettables. Adrian Plass is one of today’s most significant and successful Chris­tian authors, and he has written over thirty books, including his latest, Looking Good, Being Bad: the Subtle Art of Churchmanship. Known for his ability to evoke both tears and laughter for a purpose, Plass has been reaching the hearts of thousands for over fifteen years. He lives in Sussex, England, with his wife, Bridget, and continues to be a cricket fanatic.

Adrian Plass’s unique perspective on life and faith can be enjoyed once more in this energizing compilation of two autobiographical books—The Growing Up Pains of Adrian Plass and Why I Follow Jesus Told with disarming honesty and his usual irresistible humour, The Growing Up Pains of Adrian Plass is about the sometimes difficult progress of faith. From being ‘asked to leave’ his grammar school as a youth, to the ups and downs throughout his life and relationship with God, Plass departs from the usual formula of the ‘Chris­tian paperback’ and tells it like it is . . . warts and all. In Why I Follow Jesus, Plass explains why a man who had a short-lived life 2000 years ago still has meaning for us today. As he says, “I follow Jesus because he’s less narrow and boring about salvation than an awful lot of his followers.” With many more laugh-out-loud witticisms, stories, and anecdotes, this collection is for anyone who wonders how it is possible to follow Jesus and remain a real human being in a real world.

Adrian Plass is one of today’s most significant and successful Chris­tian authors, and he has written over thirty books, including his latest, Looking Good, Being Bad: the Subtle Art of Churchmanship.

A Theology of John’s Gospel and Letters introduces the first volume in the new Biblical Theology of the New Testament series. Building on many years of research and study in Johannine literature, Andreas Köstenberger not only furnishes an exhaustive theology of John’s Gospel and letters, but also provides a detailed study of major themes and relates them to the Synoptic Gospels and other New Testament books. Readers will gain an in-depth and holistic grasp of Johannine theology in the larger context of the Bible. I. Howard Marshall (University of Aberdeen) writes, “This book is a ‘first’ in many ways: the first volume that sets the pattern for the quality and style of the new Biblical Theology of the New Testament series published by Zondervan, the first major volume to be devoted specifically to the theology of John’s Gospel and Letters at a high academic level, and the first volume to do so on the basis that here we have an interpretation of John’s theology composed by an eyewitness of the life and passion of Jesus.” The Biblical Theology of the New Testament (BTNT)

series provides upper college and seminary-level textbooks for students of New Testament theology, interpretation, and exegesis. Each volume is written at the highest level of academic excellence by a recognized expert in the field. The series not only offers a comprehensive exploration of the theology of every book of the New Testament, including introductory issues and major themes, but also shows how each book relates to the broad picture of New Testament theology. Andreas Köstenberger is professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology and director of PhD studies at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina.

The Great Commission is not just for professional clergy; it is a charge to every follower of Christ — ordinary Chris­ tians like you and me. Bob Roberts Jr. urges disciples of Jesus to reclaim their role in God’s transforming work around the globe. In Real-Time Connections, Roberts illuminates the ways that Chris­tians from all walks of life can use the everyday associations of their work for the ser­vice of God’s kingdom. It’s an ancient idea in a new global reality. The growth and influence of the first Chris­tian communities came from ­people of every vocation. Today’s global economy offers followers of Jesus opportunities to interact with nations and ­people groups once accessed only by remote missionaries. Real-Time Connections helps readers shed preconceived notions of what it means to “go into all the world” for Jesus, equipping them with practical guidance and encouraging them with firsthand stories of real ­people doing just

that. Readers can discover their vital role in expanding God’s kingdom around the globe using skills and talents that they already have. Bob Roberts Jr. is the founding pastor of NorthWood

Church in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and has been involved in the planting of a hundred congregations in the United States. Bob also works in Australia, Asia, Afghanistan, Mexico, and Nepal helping with church planting and development and global engagement. Bob is a graduate of Baylor University (BA), Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MDiv), and Fuller Seminary (DMin) with an emphasis in church planting. He and his wife have two children.

The challenges of leadership often multiply during times of transition. Blending perceptive, visionary principles with a passion to please God, Scott Wilson examines how to effectively lead a church through the process of change. Transitions addressed include the building of new facilities, the changing of staff structure, the addition of new ser­vices, and the transition to becoming a multi-site ministry, among others. Each chapter includes discussion questions, making this an ideal resource for a church staff or leadership team. During the struggles of transition, doubts and fears will inevitably arise. At those moments, leaders need assurance that they have a real and authentic vision from God. Scott encourages leaders to follow their call to lead with confidence, courage, and an unwavering commitment to push through the challenges that come with change.

Scott Wilson has been in full-time pastoral ministry for more than twenty years. He is the Senior Pastor of The Oaks Fellowship located in Dallas, Texas. In the last three years, the church has experienced robust growth—nearly tripling in size—and is now ministering to over three thousand ­people.

The local church today stands poised to experience what could be the 21st century’s new Reformation: the rise of multi-ethnic churches. Increasingly, church leaders are now recognizing the intrinsic power and beauty of the multiethnic church. Yet more than a good idea, it’s a biblical, 1st century standard with far-reaching evangelistic potential. But in a Chris­tian culture where distinctions so often and otherwise divide, how can you and your congregation overcome the obstacles in order to become a healthy, fruitful multi-ethnic church of faith? And why should you even try? In Ethnic Blends, multi-ethnic church pioneer Mark DeYmaz provides an up-close and personal look at seven common challenges to mixing diversity into your local church. Through real-life stories and practical illustrations, DeYmaz shows how to overcome the obstacles in order to build a healthy multi-ethnic church. He also includes the insights of other effective multi-ethnic local church pastors from around the country.

Serving on a church board can be a tough assignment. Marathon business meetings and petty squabbling can quickly take a toll. But lay leaders aren’t the only ones who find board meetings to be a harrowing experience. So do many pastors. Larry Osborne is no exception. Six months into a new pastorate, he found himself embroiled in controversy. Old members left as fast as new ones could be added. He and the board seldom saw eye-to-eye on anything. Troubled and confused, he set out to find some answers. What were the secrets of an effective leadership team? Could a pastor lead without becoming a dictator? What would it take to develop and maintain and unified board? Could it even be done? Now, after many years of board meetings and hours of research, Osborne applies tested, no-nonsense wisdom to questions like these:

A modern classic of church leadership, Sticky Teams shows pastors what it takes to develop a healthy environment of teamwork as leaders pursue God’s will for their church. Larry Osborne is lead pastor of North Coast Church in northern San Diego County, widely recognized as one of the most influential and innovative churches in America. Larry speaks extensively on the subject of leadership and developing healthy ministry teams and is the author of The Unity Factor and A Contrarian’s Guide to Knowing God.

Your Church Is Too Small gives voice to a gnawing sense many believers share: the contentious nature of differences among Chris­tians cannot be pleasing to God. Jesus’ prayer in John 17, “May they be one as we are one,” seems like a dream possible only occasionally at best. Minister and teacher John Armstrong tells the story of how his own passion for Chris­tian unity was ignited, shares his vision of individuals and churches united in the mission of God, and gives direction for how this vision can become a reality for God’s ­people. However, such unity will not happen by sheer willpower or denying the real differences among believing communities. Armstrong encourages Chris­tians to rely on God—Father, Son, and Spirit­—to build the worldwide church. Such reliance entails both a deeper experience in the triune life of God and a connection to the church’s past.

Michael Horton’s highly anticipated The Chris­tian Faith represents his magnum opus and will be viewed as one of—if not the­—most important systematic theologies since Louis Berkhof wrote his in 1932. A prolific, award-winning author and theologian, Professor Horton views this volume as “doctrine that can be preached, experienced, and lived, as well as understood, clarified, and articulated.” It is written for a growing cast of pilgrims making their way together and will be especially welcomed by professors, pastors, students, and armchair theologians. Features of this volume include: (1) a brief synopsis of biblical passages that inform a particular doctrine; (2) surveys of past and current theologies with contemporary emphasis on exegetical, philosophical, practical, and theological questions; (3) substantial interaction with various Chris­tian movements within the Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox traditions, as well as the hermeneutical issues raised by postmodernity; and (4) charts, sidebars, questions for discussion, and an extensive bibliography, divided into different entry levels and topics.

Too often, youth workers find themselves tweaking or even rewriting Bible studies they attempt to use with their students. Typically, questions are way over the heads of a teenage audience, or they’re just looking for simple “Sunday school answers.” Studies on the Go: Romans is the second in a Bible study series that is easy to pick up and use, and doesn’t skimp on depth. With 30 studies written by small group guru Laurie Polich, youth workers will find open-ended questions and practical applications from Romans. In an easy-to-use format, youth ministry volunteers and busy youth pastors will be able to save valuable time and avoid reinventing a small group study for their group.

Many youth ministry volunteers have far more enthusiasm than expertise. Even many full-time, first-time youth pastors are long on good ideas from seminary classes, but short on everyday wisdom from the school of hard knocks. Now these youth workers can benefit from the counsel of seasoned veterans who have “been there and done that.” If I Knew Then What I Know Now includes first-person testimonials “from the front lines,” thought-provoking discussion questions, relevant Scripture passages, and practical applications to help new youth leaders learn from the common, but avoidable, blunders of student ministry veterans.

For much of his adult life, Len Woods has been involved in student ministry. He’s been a wild-eyed summer intern, a clueless part-time youth director, and a mistake-making full-time student pastor. He’s been a bumbling adult volunteer as well as a stumbling father of teenage sons. The former editor of Youthwalk, Len has also authored and helped create numerous books and Bible study materials for youth and youth leaders. A graduate of LSU and Dallas Theological Seminary, Len is now the lead pastor at Christ Community Church in Ruston, Louisiana, where he still goofs up on a regular basis.

Dave Veerman worked for 26 years with Youth for Christ.

He has authored more than 60 books including Youth Evangelism, Dave’s Complete Guide to Junior High Ministry, Small Group Ministry with Youth, Tough Parents for Tough Times, and Letting Them Go. He was a senior editor of the Life Application Study Bible and was the senior editor of the Student Life Application Study Bible. He is also on the Understanding Your Teenager teaching team. Dave is a founding partner in The Livingstone Corporation, a company that serves Bible publishers by creating, developing, and producing Bible-related products.

For youth workers and parents who want to help students along this journey, Mile Markers provides more than 50 practical, easy-to-execute ideas that help create places to stop and reflect along the way.

Included in the book is a CD-ROM which provides printouts of the activities, and more.

As a youth minister in Oklahoma for 13 years, and now as a ministry coach, Denise McKinney spends her ministry time as a Frontline Coach to Covenant youth workers and serving on the Evangelical Covenant Youth Ministry Speaker Team. She has written for YouthWorker Journal, serves on the Biblical Studies Advisory Board for her alma mater, John Brown University, and recently completed a Certificate in Youth Ministry from Fuller Seminary.

The key to a strong youth group is the volunteer team. And the key to a strong team of volunteers is a common vision and passion for both teenagers and the ministry. Unfortunately, many youth pastors struggle to get their vision out of their own heads and into the hearts of their volunteer team. Youth ministry team meetings often get bogged down in discussing event details, sharing the needs of students, and coordinating schedules. While those topics are important, in order for the ministry to really thrive and propel students towards God, the team needs to go deeper — to really explore the things that make their group tick, and determine how they can take their students and ministry to the next level. Essential Leadership is a unique, research-based training resource developed to address the needs of youth workers and volunteer leaders. Designed to focus on a key monthly issue over the course of nine months, Essential Leadership provides the youth pastor with insight and tools to make ministry team meetings work, and to engage all their leaders in discussion that will take both the ministry and the students deeper.

Written by Dr. Kara Powell, executive director of Fuller Youth Institute, and including other influential voices in youth ministry, such as Chap Clark, Brad Griffin, Dave Livermore, and Terry Linhart, Essential Leadership will strengthen youth ministry leadership teams and make a deeper impact on the lives of teenagers. Dr. Kara E. Powell serves as a faculty member and the executive director of Fuller Youth Institute at Fuller Theological Seminary. Kara’s been involved in youth ministry for more than 20 years, and she currently volunteers at her church in Pasadena. She’s the author and co-author of several Youth Specialties books, including, Deep Justice in a Broken World, Deep Ministry in a Shallow World, Help! I’m a Woman in Youth Ministry, Mirror, Mirror, Good Sex Curriculum Guide, and many more. Kara lives in Pasadena, CA, with her husband, Dave and their children, Nathan, Krista, and Jessica.

Many churched teens struggle to connect their faith to their everyday lives, and when asked what they believe, they often reply with the Chris­tianese answers they think they need to give in church. And with most issues of faith, these are things that can’t simply be taught in a four-week series of messages. TalkSheets helps teens engage in real conversations where belief can be discovered, Chris­tian words and notions can be unpacked, and faith can be connected with and expressed. In an easy-to-use format, youth workers can use TalkSheets as the primary lesson or as a supplement for their youth group, Sunday school class, or small group. As part of the bestselling TalkSheets series, offers 52 discussions that will allow students to learn more about: • God • Jesus • The Holy Spirit • The Bible • Salvation • Discipleship

As each TalkSheet presents important issues, interesting activities, and challenging questions, kids will be encouraged to think about opinions, learn about themselves, and grow in their faith. Youth worker and counselor David Lynn has worked with teenagers for more than two decades. He’s the creator of TalkSheets and author of numerous books, the creator of Building up Your Ministry, and conducts several leadership training workshops. He lives with his family in Tucson, Arizona.

One of the greatest challenges for Chris­tian parents is to raise kids who can survive in the real world while still living out the principles of their faith. Our culture seems to be at odds with Chris­tian­ity at every turn. The reality is that families of faith are living in two competing stories — the story of the world, and the story of God. But isolating our children from the real world is not the answer. The secret is learning to understand and contextualize our culture in order to teach our children how to be tuned into the world without becoming part of it. Real World Parents provides practical tools to help parents raise children who are strong in their faith and a benefit to this world. Culture expert and veteran youth pastor, Mark Matlock, helps parents see that the broken world — the real world — isn’t something we should be afraid of or hide from, but rather it is a place that needs families to work together to serve, heal, and restore its brokenness.

Mark Matlock has been working with youth pastors, stu-

dents, and parents for two decades. He speaks to hundreds of thousands of students around the world each year, and presents biblical truths in ways that motivate ­people to change. Mark is the vice president of event content at Youth Specialties and the founder of WisdomWorks Ministries and PlanetWisdom. He’s the author of several books including The Wisdom On - series, Living a Life That Matters, Don’t Buy The Lie, Freshman, and Smart Faith. Mark lives in Texas with his wife Jade and their two children.

There are no perfect Chris­tians. If we’re honest with ourselves, we can admit that even as we try to follow Jesus, we screw up a lot. For a lot of students who become Chris­tians, the personal struggles continue. Whether they use bad language or listen to questionable music, the issues they face make them feel like they just don’t fit into the Chris­tian mold. And a lot of times, that mold isn’t all that appealing to them. They often feel like there isn’t a lot of room for questions and failures in the Chris­tian faith. But those questions and failures are part of the process of learning to follow Jesus. This book asks students tough, honest questions without offering easy answers. It allows for students to explore who they are and who God is so they can live an authentic faith.

Tim Baker is the author of fifteen books, including the Gold Medallion Award-winning, Extreme Faith, and several awardnominated student books. He’s written for many ministry publications including Group magazine, YouthWorker Journal, The Journal of Student Ministries, and YouthWalk magazine. Tim is the student ministries director at Hope Fellowship and lives in Longview, Texas with his wife, Jacqui, and their three kids, and you can keep up with Tim on his website at timbaker.cc.

the Katy Lambright Series

Katy’s new world Kim Vogel Sawyer

A new Mennonite fiction series for teens by bestselling author Kim Vogel Sawyer.

Katy Lambright has been given an opportunity most of the friends in her community will never experience— attending a public high school. Katy is certain her life is about to make a dramatic and positive turn … but she’s never been in the “world” on her own. Can this Old Order girl maintain her standards when sitting side-by-side with young people raised in a secular world?

February 2010 USD $9.99 Softcover Age: 13-16 ISBN: 9780310719243 TEEN FICTION Trim: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 (216 x 135 mm) Pages: 208 Carton Qty: 48 Selling Territory: World UK Rights: Zondervan

Bestselling, award-winning author Kim Vogel Sawyer wears many hats besides “writer.” As a wife, mother, grandmother, and active participant in her church, her life is happily full. But Kim’s passion lies in writing stories of hope that encourage her readers to place their lives in God’s capable hands. An active speaking ministry assists her with her desire. Kim and her husband make their home on the beautiful plains of Kansas, the setting for many of Kim’s novels.

Katy’s New World Katy has always enjoyed life in her small Mennonite community, but she longs to learn more than her school can offer. After getting approval from her elders, Katy begins her sophomore year at the public school in town, where she meets new friends and encounters perspectives much different than her own. But as Katy begins to find her way in the outside world, her relationships at home become strained. Can she find a balance between her two worlds?

Focused on her newfound faith and sobriety, Taylor is trying to behave, but Eliza has no such intention. In an attempt to win Harry back, Eliza continues to push the envelope, and her partying spins out of control. When Eliza goes missing, everyone is left worried and afraid for her safety. Will Eliza wake up and see that her life is built on sinking sand? Or will this quicksand claim her instead?

Melody Carlson has written more than 200 books for teens, women, and children. Before publishing, Melody traveled around the world, volunteered in teen ministry, taught preschool, raised two sons, and worked briefly in interior design and later in international adoption. “I think real-life experiences inspire the best fiction,” she says. Her wide variety of books seems to prove this theory.

Andrew McDonough is the creator, writer, and illustrator of the Lost Sheep series. Way back in 1989 as a young Bible college student, Andrew was asked to give the dreaded “children’s talk” at a large church. Andrew possessed one talent: he could draw sheep. He bought some overhead projector sheets and drew up the story of Cecil and the Lost Sheep. The congregation loved it, so Andrew continued to draw stories to use with kids and adults.

In the center of the nest lay one perfect egg, the color of a spring sky. The father robin sat on a branch nearby, guarding his family. Tressa spotted raccoon tracks below and a blue jay eying the nest. “Gran, how are we going to keep the egg safe?” “We’ll have to leave that one to the Creator,” Gran said. Robins have built a nest on the window ledge at Grandmother’s house! Tressa is thrilled — and concerned. What will happen to the sky-blue egg laid by the mother robin? As more eggs appear, Tressa witnesses the daily drama of the robins’ nest, and learns how God cares for all creatures. Besides watching the birds, there are Easter eggs to color.

Lee Strobel (www.LeeStrobel.com), with a journalism

degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School, was the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and a spiritual skeptic until 1981. His books include four Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Christian Book of the Year (coauthored with Garry Poole). He and his wife live in California.

Drawn from Lee Strobel’s own experiences as a former atheist engaged in a thorough search for truth, the articles and notes throughout The Case for Christ Study Bible provide a solid explanation of where the historical and scientific evidence point — toward the existence of a compassionate Creator God and his Son, Jesus, the Savior. The Case for Christ Study Bible features more than 500 notes and articles, including:

• Trade Ads • Online Ads & promotions • Influencer Ads and Promotions • Events • Feature Website •Consumer Sampler: Print & Digital: ISBN: 9780310949190 •Merchandising Kit-Bible only ISBN: 9780310949176 • Merchandising Kit that will support “Case For . . .” books and Bible: ISBN: 9780310949183

• The Case for a Creator: highlighting the wonders of creation and demonstrating how the scientific evidence supports belief in an all-powerful Creator. • The Case for the Bible: exploring the character of the Bible, the extra-biblical evidence that corroborates Scripture and apparent contradictions. • The Case for Christ: investigating Jesus’ claims, Messianic identity, deity, and resurrection.

• And much more. The Good News of the Gospel transformed the life of this former atheist. It can do the same for others who commit to examining the evidence for themselves. For interviews, call 1–800–9–BOOK–IT • All information subject to change without notice

Ustedes deben elegir, si desean un predicador colega . . . o una espina clavada en el pie.” Esta frase que emula al discurso del afamado médico Patch Adams, ilustra el espíritu revolucionario de este libro. Dante Gebel es conocido en gran parte del mundo hispano como un orador capaz de trasportar a sus oyentes a las más fascinantes historias y lograr conducirlos por laberintos emocionales que van desde las risas hasta las lágrimas.

Dante Gebel is known in the Hispanic world as a preacher able to transport his listeners to the most fascinating stories and to take them from laughter all the way to tears. “Champion Code” has the essence of these messages, added to these bright stories that challenge your life. This is a book written specially with passion, dedicated to all those that suffer “holy dissatisfaction”, or, like the author says, those that want double portions of spiritual ambition.

Puedes servir a Dios y su iglesia durante toda una vida y siempre hacerlo con alegría y pasión. No tienes por qué convertirte en uno más del creciente número de líderes que han comprometido su integridad, carácter y ministerio porque fallaron en llevar una vida responsable y examinada de la forma debida.

También brindará herramientas prácticas para autoexaminarse». Compartiendo historias y la sabiduría obtenida en sus años de ministerio, Harney te muestra cómo mantener la herramienta más poderosa en tu caja de herramientas de liderazgo: TÚ MISMO. Tu corazón, para que puedas amar bien. Tu mente, para que continúes aprendiendo y creciendo. Tus oídos, tus ojos, tu boca . . . Considéralo tu guía esencial para llevar a cabo tu propio examen de salud interior y que así puedas encontrar y arreglar cualquier problema, preservar aquello que más importa, y crecer como una fuente de visión, fortaleza y esperanza para otros.

Agentes de cambio Change Agents veinticinco lecciones en el arte de lograr que se hagan las cosas 25 Hard-Learned Lessons in the Art of Getting Things Done Steve Chalke

January 2010 Precio / Price $3.99 / Mass Market ISBN-10: 0829755780 ISBN-13: 9780829755787 RELIGIÓN / Iglesia Cristiana / General RELIGION / Chris­tian Church / General Tamaño / Size: 4-3/16 x 6-3/4 (171mm x 106mm) Páginas / Pages: 144

Los agentes de cambio son pioneros, empresarios, innovadores. Pueden ser difíciles, hostigosos y exigentes. No obstante, su llamamiento también es difícil: tomar una visión y esforzarse por convertirla en realidad. Cuando a Steve Chalke le pidieron que fuera el pastor principal de una iglesia moribunda en el centro de la ciudad, sabía lo que quería: convertirla en un equivalente cristiano de la sinagoga del primer siglo. Un lugar en donde la comunidad se reuniera, no solo para orar y oír sermones, sino también para educarse, hallar diversión y ayuda. Hacer que esto sucediera fue lo más difícil. En Agentes de cambio el autor comparte veinticinco lecciones que aprendió durante este trabajo. Tuvo que enseñarse a sí mismo a responder, no a reaccionar; a decir que no más que decir que sí, dejando a un lado el ser amigo de todos; y a aceptar que todo éxito era apenas un breve respiro entre dos crisis. Empleando el humor y la ironía, ejemplos personales, y una gran dosis de consejos prácticos, Steve Chalke nos recuerda que se trata de hacer nuestro trabajo, no de ser precavidos, y que la Palabra de Dios recibe recompensa por medio de la obra que llevamos a cabo. Change agents are pioneers, entrepreneurs, innovators. They

can be difficult, annoying, and demanding. But their calling is demanding too: to take a vision and turn it into reality. When Steve Chalke was asked to be the senior minister of a dying inner-city church, he knew what he wanted: to make it into a Chris­tian equivalent of a first-century synagogue. A place where the community gathered, not just to pray and hear sermons, but to be educated, entertained, and find help. Making it all happen was the harder part. In Change Agents, the author shares twenty-five lessons he learned during this work. He had to teach himself to respond, not react; say no more than yes, give up being everyone’s friend, and accept that any success was only a short respite between two crises. Employing wry humor, personal examples, and a large helping of practical advice, Steve Chalke reminds us that it is our job, not our precaution, and that the Word of God is rewarded through the work we do. STEVE CHALKE es el fundador de Oasis Global, el Faithworks Movement, Stop the Traffik, y de la red Church.co.uk. También es el Asesor Especial de la ONU en Acción Comunitaria en contra del tráfico de personas. En 2004 recibió un reconocimiento nobiliario de la Reina de Inglaterra por su obra a favor de la inclusión social. Steve Chalke is the founder of Oasis Global, the Faithworks

Movement, Stop the Traffik, and the Church.co.uk network. He is also the UN Special Advisor on Community Action Against ­People Trafficking. In 2004, he was awarded an MBE by the Queen for his work in social inclusion.

BTV # 10: Comentario de Colosenses Colossians David E. Garland

Muchos comentarios bíblicos nos llevan en un viaje de ida del siglo veinte al siglo uno. Sin embargo, nos dejan ahí, asumiendo que, de alguna manera, podremos regresar por nosotros mismos. En otras palabras, se enfocan en el significado original del pasaje, pero no discuten su aplicación contemporánea. ¡La información que ofrecen es valiosa, pero el trabajo está hecho solo a la mitad! Esta nueva y única serie muestra a los lectores cómo traer un mensaje antiguo al contexto moderno. Explica no solo lo que la Biblia quiso decir, sino también cómo puede hablar de un modo poderoso en la actualidad.

February 2010 Precio / Price $15.99 Rústica / Softcover ISBN-10: 082975380X ISBN-13: 9780829753806 RELIGIÓN / comentano Biblico / Nuevo Testamento RELIGION / Biblical Commentary / New Testament Tamaño / Size: 6 x 9 (229mm x 153mm) Páginas / Pages: 384

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its’ contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.

There is a growing desire among Catholics to read the Bible and to find inspiration and wisdom for their daily lives. Yet there is no Bible that brings Catholic families and the Bible together. The Catholic Faith and Family Bible will be the first Bible of its kind and will be found throughout the house: at the dinner table as part of family prayer, on the living room coffee table as part of family discussion, in the parents’ bedroom as a source of inspiration and solace, in a teen’s room as a source of learning and guidance. The one place you won’t find this Bible: tucked away in a corner of a remote bookshelf collecting dust. Developed in partnership with the Center for Ministry Development and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Religion Publishers, the leaders in youth and family Catholic curriculum, The Catholic Faith and Family Bible was created to make the Bible easier to read and understand for the everyday Catholic family, helping parents and children grow in faith together. Most importantly, Catholic families will discover God’s relevant message for their life today in the context of both ordinary and extraordinary moments of family living. This message is brought to life through the following distinctive features:

• Book Introductions for each book of the Bible writ-

ten specifically for Catholic families with helpful tips for parents on sharing Scripture with children • Over 1,000 Relevant Notes and Reflection Lines to help families apply Scripture to daily living • Presentation pages in the front of the Bible for recording family tree information, sacraments, and other important events • An Index to guide families to important Bible stories, prayers, teachings, and connections to the Catholic faith

• Maps to help visualize the Bible lands

A New Kind of Chris­tian­ity Brian McLaren

February 2010

We are in the midst of a paradigm-shift in the church. Not since the Reformation five centuries ago have so many Chris­tians come together to ask whether the church is in synch with their deepest beliefs and commitments. Called the “emergent” movement, these believers range from evangelical to mainline Protestant to even Catholic churches and the person who best represents them is author and pastor, Brain McLaren. In this much anticipated book, McLaren examines ten questions facing today’s church-questions about how to articulate the faith itself, authority, God, Jesus, the nature of the gospel, the church, sex, the future, pluralism, and the most controversial: what do we do next? Here is the best--and perhaps, only--introduction to what the church will look like for its next five hundred years.

Brian D. McLaren (MA, University of Maryland) is founding pastor of Cedar Ridge Community Church, an innovative, nondenominational church in the Baltimore-Washington region. He’s also a senior fellow with emergent (www.emergentvillage. org), a growing generative friendship of missional Chris­tian leaders.

Simply Chris­tian Why Chris­tian­ity Makes Sense N. T. Wright

February 2010 USD $24.99 Hardcover ISBN: 9780061920622 RELIGION / General Trim: 6 x 9 (229 x 152 mm) Pages: 256 Carton Qty: Selling Territory: North America, CBA UK Rights: HarperCollins, NY

Why is justice fair? Why are so many people pursuing spirituality? Why do we crave relationship? And why is beauty so beautiful? N. T. Wright argues that each of these questions takes us into the mystery of who God is and what he wants from us. For two thousand years Christianity has claimed to answer these mysteries, and this renowned biblical scholar and Anglican bishop shows that it still does today. Like C. S. Lewis did in his classic Mere Christianity, Wright makes the case for Christian faith from the ground up, assuming that the reader is starting from ground zero with no predisposition to and perhaps even some negativity toward religion in general and Christianity in particular. His goal is to describe Christianity in as simple and accessible, yet hopefully attractive and exciting, a way as possible, both to say to outsides “You might want to look at this further,” and to say to insiders “You may not have quite understood this bit clearly yet.”

N. T. Wright is one of the world’s top biblical scholars, a prolific author, and the Bishop of Durham for the Church of England. His book, Jesus and the Victory of God, is widely regarded as one of the most significant studies on the historical Jesus. He has been featured on ABC News, Dateline, and Fresh Air. Wright taught New Testament studies for twenty years at Cambridge, McGill, and Oxford Universities. Among his many published works are Simply Chris­tian, The Challenge of Jesus, The Meaning of Jesus (coauthored with Marcus Borg), and What Saint Paul Really Said.

In the tradition of his award-winning Surprised by Hope, Bishop N.T. Wright once again topples the accepted wisdom about what we think the Bible teaches. In Here and Now, he takes on the neglected question of How shall we live? Wright argues that ­people are so preoccupied about who gets into heaven that they forget not only that much of the New Testament is about the here and now, but also that even the passages about heaven are there to help us know how we act “here and now.” Once again Wright takes the reader on a thrilling and eye-opening journey through key biblical passages that promises radically to alter the work of the church and the direction of our lives. N. T. Wright is one of the world’s top biblical scholars, a prolific author, and the Bishop of Durham for the Church of England. His book, Jesus and the Victory of God, is widely regarded as one of the most significant studies on the historical Jesus. He has been featured on ABC News, Dateline, and Fresh Air.

Book of Interest for the Chris­tian Market from HarperCollins Publishers

Made for Goodness Desmond Tutu

March 2010 USD $25.99 Hardcover ISBN: 9780061706592 RELIGION / General Trim: 5-1/2 x 8-1/4 (210 x 135 mm) Pages: 256 Carton Qty: 44 Selling Territory: North America, CBA UK Rights: HarperCollins, NY

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has witnessed some of the world’s darkest moments, for decades fighting the racist government policy of apartheid and since then being an ambassador of peace amidst political, diplomatic, and natural disasters. Yet ­people continue to find him one of the most joyful and hopeful ­people they have encountered. In Made for Goodness, Tutu shares his source of strength and optimism. Written with his daughter, Mpho, who is also an ordained Anglican minister, Tutu argues that God has made us for goodness, and when we simply start walking in the direction of this calling, God is there to meet us, encourage us, embrace us. God has made the world as a grand theater for us to work out this call to goodness; it is up to us to live up to this calling, but God is there to help us every step of the way. So tackling our worst problems takes on new meaning and is bolstered with hope and the expectation that that is exactly where God will show up. Father and daughter offer an inspiring message of hope that will transform readers into activists for change and blessing.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu was awarded the Nobel

Peace Prize in 1984 for his lifelong struggle to bring equality, justice, and peace to his native country of South Africa. His most recent book is God’s Dream. He continues to play an important role worldwide as a spokesperson for peace and forgiveness. The Archbishop lives in South Africa with his wife, Leah; they have four children and seven grandchildren.

and a spiritual exercise. Practicing these spiritual disciplines will help readers live intentionally, contributing to a more balanced spiritual life and a reformation of the inner self.

In Richard Foster’s bestselling book, Celebration of Discipline, he explored the “classic disciplines,” or central spiritual practices of the Christian faith. Foster showed that it is only by and through these practices that the true path to spiritual growth can be found. In A Year with God, the spiritual disciplines are presented in such a way that does not destroy the soul but enables the reader to enter into a transforming life with God. Through daily spiritual exercises and meditations, A Year with God explores eighteen spiritual disciplines.

Dr. Rita Hancock is a Christian physician who draws upon her faith and her personal success overcoming childhood-onset obesity, in addition to her Ivy League nutrition training and studies of obesity psychology, to help those in bondage to food, eating, and dieting lose weight and keep it off permanently. She lives in Oklahoma City with her husband and children.

What if you could eat whatever you wanted and still lose weight? And what if losing weight was as simple as only eating when you are hungry and then eating smaller amounts—of your favorite foods? In The Eden Diet, Rita M. Hancock, a medical doctor with Ivy League nutrition and obesity research experience, reveals the amazingly simple answer for weight control: it’s the hunger pangs God gave you in the beginning. Dr. Hancock explains why traditional, restrictive diets cause you to fail at weight control 80% of the time. They cause you to block out your God-given internal sensations of hunger and satiety and eat according to unnatural, restrictive, human rules. That is not how God the Creator designed you to eat. You were made to eat when you feel hungry—not ignore those signals and eat for emotional or intellectual reasons. Most importantly, Dr. Hancock explains how to fight the temptation to eat when your body doesn’t actually need food.

Calling him a “spiritual entrepreneur,” Forbes magazine said, “If Warren’s ministry was a business it would be compared with Dell, Google, or Starbucks in impact.” Rick and Kay Warren give away 90 percent of the profits from their books to charitable causes, including their global P.E.A.C.E. plan and Acts of Mercy, which services those infected with and affected by AIDS.

Breakout Churches Discover How to Make the Leap Thom S. Rainer

An extensive, groundbreaking study identifying factors that move a church from stagnation to growth Dr. Thom Rainer and his research teams have studied the local church for nearly two decades, but inspired by Good to Great, Rainer realized a “missing piece” from his previous research. In this book, he sets out to discover how churches that were once healthy but have stagnated in growth, have broken out to become significant churches impacting individual lives and entire communities. Rainer identifies “The Chrysalis Factor”—which emphasizes the qualities of churches that have “broken-out.” This book highlights the events, patterns, plans, strategies, crises, and other factors that took place when a church moved from from decline to growth. Many of his discoveries are counterintuitive and go against the grain of conventional wisdom. Rainer found thirteen churches that took the leap and became great churches among the over 52,000 for which data was available. Although based on massive research, Breakout Churches presents far more than numbers, graphs, and theory. Rainer answers the question, “Can a healthy but plodding church become a great church?” And this book provides the answer as a most definite “yes!” The book is written at a non-technical level and is designed to motivate pastors and lay leaders alike to utilize the information in their own local churches.

Thom S. Rainer (PhD, Southern Baptist Theological

Seminary) is president and CEO of LifeWay Christian Resources in Nashville, Tennessee. He was founding dean of the Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism and Church Growth at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. His many books include Surprising Insights from the Unchurched, The Unexpected Journey, and Breakout Churches.

¿Quién fue Jesús en realidad? Durante siglos, la iglesia cristiana ha enseñado que Jesús es el Hijo de Dios, crucificado por los pecadores y resucitado de los muertos. Sin embargo, en años recientes la imagen de Jesús ha estado bajo el fuerte ataque de una amplia gama de fuentes que van desde los eruditos entendidos, o los sabihondos de Internet, hasta los historiadores populares. Las nuevas ideas sobre Jesús parecen persuasivas. Uno no puede dejar de preguntarse: ¿Copió el cristianismo meramente sus creencias de mitologías anteriores? ¿Suprimió la iglesia cristiana Evangelios alternos? ¿Será verdad que Jesús nunca murió en la cruz por los pecadores ni resucitó de los muertos? ¿El Nuevo Testamento está plagado de errores de un modo irremediable? Lee Strobel, autor de varios éxitos de librería según el New York Times, le ayuda a hacer la separación entre la verdad y la propaganda exagerada de los medios de comunicación, la sólida erudición y el prejuicio, y los hechos y la especulación. Hurgando debajo de la superficie, este libro provee respuestas creíbles e informadas a las preguntas actuales más apremiantes acerca de Jesús.

Who was Jesus —really? For centuries, the Christian church has taught that Jesus is the divine Son of God, crucified for sinners and raised from the dead. In recent years, however, that picture of Jesus has come under widely publicized attack from sources ranging from critical scholars to Internet pundits to popular historians and others. The new portraits of Jesus seem persuasive. You can’t help but wonder … Did Christianity merely copy its beliefs from earlier mythology? Did the church suppress alternate gospels? Did Jesus never die on the cross or rise from the dead for sinners? Is the New Testament hopelessly riddled with errors? New York Times bestselling author Lee Strobel helps you separate truth from media hype, sound scholarship from bias, and fact from speculation. Digging below the surface, this book provides credible, informed answers to today’s most pressing questions about Jesus.

Debemos examinarlo todo. Le doy gracias a Dios por cualquiera, en cualquier parte, que esté dirigiendo a las personas hacia los misterios de Dios. No obstante, todos le dirán que piense largo y tendido en lo que ellos están diciendo, haciendo y produciendo. Examínelo todo. Sondéelo. Haga eso con este libro. No lo acepte sin analizarlo. Piense al respecto. Batalle con él. Simplemente porque soy creyente y estoy tratando de articular una cosmovisión cristiana no quiere decir que tenga la última palabra. Solo estoy contribuyendo al debate. Dios ha hablado, y todo lo demás es comentario, ¿no es así?

Rob Bell vive con su familia en Grand Rapids, Michigan, en donde es pastor fundador de Mars Hill Bible Church. También enseña por medio de cortometrajes titulados NOOMA, y sus primeros libros son Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith y Sex God: Exploring the Endless Connections Between Sexuality and Spirituality.

We have to test everything. I thank God for anybody anywhere who is pointing people to the mysteries of God. But those people would all tell you to think long and hard about what they are saying and doing and creating. Test it. Probe it. Do that to this book. Don’t swallow it uncritically. Think about it. Wrestle with it. Just because I’m a Christian and I’m trying to articulate a Christian worldview doesn’t mean I’ve got it nailed. I’m contributing to the discussion. God has spoken, and the rest is commentary, right?
