Summary : What Would You Surrender for God? Christians in the Middle East, in much of Asia, and in Africa are still being martyred for the faith, but how many American Christians are willing to lay down their smartphones, let alone their lives, for the faith? Being a Christian in America doesn’t require much these days. Suburban megachurches are more like entertainment venues than places to worship God. The lives that American “Christians” lead aren’t much different from those of their atheist neighbors, and their knowledge of theology isn’t much better either. Matt Walsh of The Daily Wire exposes the pitiful state of Christianity in America today, lays out the stakes for us, our families, and our eternal salvation, and invites us to a faith that’s a lot less easy and comfortable—but that’s more real and actually worth something. The spiritual junk food we’re stuffing ourselves with is never going to satisfy. As St. Augustine said over a millennium ago, our hearts are restless until they rest in Him. Only God Himself can make our lives anything but ultimately meaningless and empty. And we will never get anywhere near Him if we refuse to take up our cross and follow Jesus. This rousing call to the real adventure of a living faith is a wake-up call to complacent Christians and a rallying cry for anyone dissatisfied with a lukewarm faith.

Summary : Armed with truth, conviction, and faith, Matt Walsh explores the "Unholy Trinity,"- abortion, gay marriage, and gender --the three controversial and highly relevant topics that hold the key to progressivism's victory in not only politics, but over the entire culture. While conservatives worry endlessly about peripheral issues -- the economy, foreign policy and so forth - liberals have been hard at work chipping away at the bedrock of our civilization, and putting a new foundation in its place.a Through this campaign liberals have attempted, with startling success, to redefine the most fundamental elements of human society. Abortion redefines human life, gay marriage redefines the family, and finally progressive theories about gender redefine what it means to be a man or a woman. If progressivism can claim the power to bend life, family, and sex to its whims, it has established relativism as the supreme law and can truly do anything.a Walsh argues that only by learning to confront and win these supreme arguments can conservatives defeat the progressive agenda and reclaim the American culture.

Summary : Are you hesitant to reveal your Christian faith in the world today? Do you sit in silence as others ridicule church and Jesus Christ? Do you cringe but turn a deaf ear when others curse and take the name of the Lord in anger? You are not alone. Christians everywhere are shrinking into the background of life to avoid confrontation with a world that is blind to the ways of the Kingdom of God. Roberta Palmer Grummond's Christianity Is Not for Cowards offers a wealth of ways to combat unbelievers and remain grounded in faith even during trying times, including doing good works, spending time alone with God's Word, and facing fear head-on. Realizing that the world has been shaken to its core in these last days, she reveals signs that will identify Christians and encourages believers everywhere in a time when Christians inevitably face challenges to their faith in God. Christianity is not a religion for wimps and milquetoasts. It takes courage to be a Christian today, along with strength of character, wisdom, and a whole lot more, as outlined in this thought-provoking book. Indeed, Christianity Is Not for Cowards! My faith has been visited by this powerful book and has been strengthened. Now I feel compelled to be a more vocal and active Christian—a soldier for my Father, Jesus. —Pat Robbins

Summary : Dopers, dropouts, scenesters, and hipsters shark Seattle in search of the next big thing. Or they refuse to search and opt to slide down the dark ladder. No bottom there. No traps. No dead end. There heroin will tell you you're brilliant, you're in touch, you're so, so inside. The addict's path mimics the shape of the worm Ouroboros: its tail forever in its mouth and he ends up where he began. It's the bus you can't get off. Mitchell Slaughter, perceptive but stoned, lures us step by step into his haunting by heroin. The days melt together like this: rain, drugs for breakfast--a spoonful of smack cooked over a flame--scratch the deaf cat, taunt the churchful priests living next door, take a tab, worship a plastic pig. Welcome to an industrial wasteland, the group-house with a freezer full of heroin, the fine spray of blood and vomit on the bathroom wall. Mitch and his mates form The Otis Process, a band named after a heroin addict/holy man they met in a certain quarter of Hell. So the Process screws around, stapling egg cartons to the walls of their practice basement, playing their gigs, blowing off lousy day jobs to brilliantly denigrate the bourgeoisie. There's a chance the band might succeed, but each member falls quicker than the last, and they just can't keep it together. When Ziggy ODs, Mitch takes his cue, which is to seek out peaceful Etta, the woman who will, just maybe, offer some kind of redemption. Moral dilemmas can be images, but addiction and its attendant despair cannot. W. A. Burgess has what few young writers have. His prose is a brilliant shock--the product of a writer writing from an experience, not simply about it.

Summary : The problem with promising God you'll follow Him wherever He leads you is that you just might have to go. When her husband returned from a church mission trip and disrupted her tidy, middle-class afternoon with the conviction they should pack up and move to a Mayan village in Guatemala, Marcia Moston had to wonder: faithful or foolish? On a journey that leads from the highlands of Guatemala to a small Vermont village, Marcia follows God's call for her husband even though it seems to conflict with her own dreams, requires credentials she lacks, and demands courage she doesn't feel she has. Written with humor and insight, Call of a Coward is a candid account of a modern-day seeker and a very real God who makes cowards courageous, ordinary lives purposeful, and dried-up dreams fruitful.

Summary : Lenny Duncan is the unlikeliest of pastors. Formerly incarcerated, he is now a black preacher in the whitest denomination in the United States: the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Shifting demographics and shrinking congregations make all the headlines, but Duncan sees something else at work--drawing a direct line between the church's lack of diversity and the church's lack of vitality. The problems the ELCA faces are theological, not sociological. But so are the answers. Part manifesto, part confession, and all love letter, Dear Church offers a bold new vision for the future of Duncan's denomination and the broader mainline Christian community of faith. Dear Church rejects the narrative of church decline and calls everyone--leaders and laity alike--to the front lines of the churchÂs renewal through racial equality and justice. It is time for the church to rise up, dust itself off, and take on forces of this world that act against God: whiteness, misogyny, nationalism, homophobia, and economic injustice. Duncan gives a blueprint for the way forward and urges us to follow in the revolutionary path of Jesus.

Summary : Look at what fear does. It discombobulates your life, it saps you of strength, and it confuses your judgment. Fear paralyzes you, so it keeps you from taking action when needed. It puts your stomach in knots; sometimes it will actually make you sick! Fear heightens our senses so that memories of trauma rarely leave us. These memories can be so strong that sometimes we will react to them and not even realize where they came from. Fear, whether real or perceived, can become chronic if we let it, causing us to live daily in a frightening world. Thus, fear has a serious impact, physically, emotionally and spiritually upon our bodies, minds, and souls.Therefore, you must let go of fear. This does not happen overnight. My prayer is that by the time you finish reading this book, you will have found the basis for your courage and have begun your life of bravery!

Summary : A powerful novel of the infamous Western outlaw and his killer: “The best blend of fiction and history I’ve read in a long while” (John Irving). By age thirty-four, Jesse James was already one of the most notorious and admired men in America. Bank robber, train bandit, gang leader, killer, and beloved son of Missouri— James’s many epithets live on in newspapers and novels alike. As his celebrity was reaching its apex, James met Robert Ford, the brother of a James gang member—an awkward, antihero-worshipping twenty-year-old with stars in his eyes. The young man’s fascination with the legend borders on jealous obsession: While Ford wants to ride alongside James as his most-trusted confidant, sharing his spotlight is not enough. As a bond forms between the two men, Ford realizes that the only way he’ll ever be as powerful as his idol is to become him; he must kill James and take his mantle. In the striking novel that inspired the film of the same name starring Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck, bestselling author Ron Hansen retells a classic Wild West story that has long captured the nation’s imagination, and breathes new life into the final days and ignoble death of an iconic American man.

Summary : What should Christians think about Donald Trump? His policies, his style, his personal life? Thirty evangelical Christians (listed below) wrestle with these tough questions. They are Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. They don't all agree, but they seek to let Christ be the Lord of their political views. They seek to apply biblical standards to difficult debates about our current political situation. Vast numbers of white evangelicals enthusiastically support Donald Trump. Do biblical standards on truth, justice, life, freedom, and personal integrity warrant or challenge that support? How does that support of President Trump affect the image of Christianity in the larger culture? Around the world? Many younger evangelicals today are rejecting evangelical Christianity, even Christianity itself. To what extent is that because of widespread evangelical support for Donald Trump? Don't read this book to find support for your views. Read it to be challenged--with facts, reason, and biblical principles. With contributions from: Michael W.

Summary : The activist and TED speaker Megan Phelps-Roper reveals her life growing up in the most hated family in America At the age of five, Megan Phelps-Roper began protesting homosexuality and other alleged vices alongside fellow members of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas. Founded by her grandfather and consisting almost entirely of her extended family, the tiny group would gain worldwide notoriety for its pickets at military funerals and celebrations of death and tragedy. As Phelps-Roper grew up, she saw that church members were close companions and accomplished debaters, applying the logic of predestination and the language of the King James Bible to everyday life with aplomb—which, as the church’s Twitter spokeswoman, she learned to do with great skill. Soon, however, dialogue on Twitter caused her to begin doubting the church’s leaders and message: If humans were sinful and fallible, how could the church itself be so confident about its beliefs? As she digitally jousted with critics, she started to wonder if sometimes they had a point—and then she began exchanging messages with a man who would help change her life. A gripping memoir of escaping extremism and falling in love, Unfollow relates Phelps-Roper’s moral awakening, her departure from the church, and how she exchanged the absolutes she grew up with for new forms of warmth and community. Rich with suspense and thoughtful reflection, Phelps-Roper’s life story exposes the dangers of black-and-white thinking and the need for true humility in a time of angry polarization.
