This book is intended to help you live more fully and faithfully for God at a time when living faithfully is increasingly difficult, writes Richard Ganz in his introduction.

Though their bodies lie cold and dormant, the grave cannot contain the influence these seven men have had on today's world. They continue to rule because they have altered the thinking of society.

Two conflicting worldviews, Christian and non-Christian, are in constant friction…examines seven non-Christian ideas that cripple the Christian mind.
At first sight in this book, the word ‘liberalism’ does not seem threatening in any way. Quite the reverse, it is often associated with ideas like ‘democracy’, ‘freedom’ and ‘generosity of spirit’.

A worship disorder: this is how Edward T. Welch views addictions. Will we worship ourselves and our own desires, he writes, or will we worship the true God?

With this lens, Welch discovers far more in Scripture on addictions than passages on drunkenness. There we learn the addict’s true condition: like guests at a banquet thrown by the woman Folly, he is already in the grave (Prov....

The Christian church confesses one baptism. But the churchs answers to how, whom and when to baptize, and even what it means or does, are famously varied. This book provides a forum for thoughtful proponents of three principal evangelical views to state their case, respond to the others, and then provide a summary response and statement. Sinclair Ferguson sets out the case for infant baptism,...

The ‘emerging church’ movement has generated a lot of excitement and exerts an astonishingly broad influence. Is it the wave of the future or a passing fancy? Who are the leaders and what are they saying? The time has come for a mature assessment.

D. A. Carson not only gives those who may be unfamiliar with it a perceptive introduction to the emerging church movement, but also...
Dr. Lambert informs the novice, the veteran, and the critic on how the great heroes of the biblical counseling movement have built upon one another.

Often considered a modern phenomenon, binge drinking is in fact an age-old problem. John Flavel, a Puritan minister in the naval port of Dartmouth, England, pulls no punches as he confronts the sin of drunkenness head on.

Flavel's treatment is a highly relevant expose of the soul-destroying evils of this 'detestable sin.'

"To read the work of a Puritan doctor of the...
Viewing brain problems through the lens of Scripture, Welch distinguishes genuine brain disorders from problems rooted in the heart. Understanding that distinction will enable pastors, counsellors, families and other concerned believers to help others – or themselves – deal with personal struggles and responsibilities.

While focusing on a few common disorders, Dr. Welch lays out a...
