Pleasure.

We live in a world obsessed with finding it, passionate to enjoy it, and desperate to maintain it. Chief among such pleasures are sex and money – two pleasures unrivalled in their power to captivate our attention, demand our worship and drive us to hide or to despair. Many of us see the battle. We feel the strain of the war ... and we are eager for freedom in a world gone...

Shame controls far too many of us. Worthless, inferior, rejected, weak, humiliated, failure... it all adds up to wishing we could get away from others and hide. Time doesn't help, neither does confession, because shame is just as often from what others do to you as it is from what you have done.

However, the Bible is about shame from start to finish, and, if we are willing, God's...
Shaping Character is meant for all Christian teachers, professors and administrators concerned about student values and the moral condition of our society.

Why do I think the way I do? How do I make sense of a world that would have me believe that all truth is relative; or that people are basically good? Where do I find hope, meaning and purpose?

This engaging book highlights society's most influential voices – including New Age, secular humanism, relativism and postmodernism. Readers will be rewarded with a way to process the complex...
What would God say about those who blatantly misrepresent His Holy Spirit; who exchange true worship for chaotic fits of mindless ecstasy; who replace the biblical gospel with vain illusions of health and wealth; who claim to prophesy in His name yet speak errors; and who sell false hope to desperate people for millions of dollars?

The charismatic movement has always been a...

There’s been huge cultural change in the last few decades. Same-sex marriage would have been unthinkable 20 or 30 years ago; now it’s almost universally accepted in the Western world. Now suddenly, the issue of transgender is the next big social, cultural issue that has dominated the headlines. In this short book, Vaughan Roberts surveys the Christian worldview and seeks to apply these...
After decades of trying to feel good about ourselves, why do we still hunger for meaning and significance? This is because self-esteem ideology has led us down a psychological cul-de-sac that causes more harm than good, and leads to today's culture of narcissism and entitlement.

The Christian gospel calls us away from a goal of self-esteem, encouraging us to stop judging ourselves,...
