Darwin's theory of evolution is often presented as scientifically proven fact – in schools, universities and by the media. Belief in the biblical act of creation has been relegated to the domain of myth, and many have now been led to understand that it has no place in real science. Few are aware, however, that there are very serious problems with Darwin's theory.

What sort of contraception, if any, should I use? When does human life begin – at fertilisation or at some point after that? What are the arguments for and against abortion? Is it ok to use genetic screening and other pre-natal tests to check for abnormalities in my unborn baby? Should Christians use IVF and other assisted reproductive technologies?

This is a pithy collection of the best of Carl Trueman’s articles on culture and the church. It is a compelling, challenging and sometimes uproarious look at how the world and the church intersect.

Like Luther before him, Trueman understands the power of humour because he understands the absurdity of human self-regard in the context of the fallen world. Also like Luther, Trueman...
It is commonly thought in secular society that the Bible is one of the greatest hindrances to doing justice. Isn't it full of regressive views? Didn't it condone slavery? Why look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Keller sees it another way.

In Generous Justice, Keller explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous,...

Edited by recent Katoomba Women’s Convention speaker, Melinda Tankard Reist, Getting Real brings together writers, advocates and academics including some of the most vocal critics of the widespread pornification of culture. They call corporations, the media and the sex industry to account for creating this toxic environment.
The Grand Design', by eminent scientist Stephen Hawking, is the latest blockbusting contribution to the so-called New Atheist debate, and claims that the laws of physics themselves brought the Universe into being, rather than God. In this swift and forthright reply, John Lennox, Oxford mathematician and author of 'God's Undertaker', exposes the flaws in Hawking's logic. In lively, layman's...

In recent days Gods reputation has come under considerable criticism from New Atheists and others. In this masterly, multi discipinary volume contemporary complaints against a belief in God are addressed with intellectual passion and rigor by leading Christian theologians philosophers and apologists.
Jesus said, “A new commandment I give to you: that you love one another as I have loved you” (John 13:34). He could hardly have put it more plainly – caring is not an optional extra for Christians.

This book is rich with tips for caring for one another as well as setting out clear principles for starting and maintaining a pastoral care ministry. Moreover, there are many...

John Lennox evaluates the evidence of modern science in relation to the debate between the atheistic and theistic interpretations of the universe, and provides a fresh basis for discussion.
Depression and bipolar disorder are two of the most common diagnoses made in medicine today. Are we in an epidemic of bad moods or is there another explanation?

Good Mood, Bad Mood examines whether it is an epidemic or if we have simply changed how we label depression. While medical treatment is now the commonly accepted way to deal with pain and sadness, its promise has not been...

In 2010, a committee was appointed by the Synod of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America to study "one of the most important cultural issues of our day." Synod saw the need to provide guidance for congregations on the subject of homosexual orientation, not simply about the scriptural, scientific and moral issues, but also guidance for care and counsel to someone who believes their...
Is it harder for you to change and grow as a Christian than it should be? Do you wonder what is holding you back? Have you ever considered that it might be idolatry?

Using real-life stories and examples, Brad Bigney shows us how the idols we might not even recognise can still have devastating effects in our lives. In this transparent, honest book, he helps us to identify our idols,...
