Approach many women in the church and if theyre being honest theyll tell you they try hard to keep it all together are frustrated that being good doesnt deliver the perfect life feel trapped in expectations make decisions based on shoulds feel selfish when they say no and are uncertain of their place in Gods kingdom. Between the desire to please God the need to feel valued and the compulsion to make everyone around them happy women often find themselves denying their desires. Its safer to stay in the life of shouldseven if it means being spiritually and emotion- ally disconnected. Kelli Gotthardt knows their pain. Always considered a good girl she threw herself into every ministry saying yes to every request her church family made. On the outside her life looked completely togetherbut she was drowning in self-doubt and shame. Unlikely Rebel is the story of how Kelly slowly shed shoulds and shame learning to love God and love who He created her to be. The journey from the comfort of doing everything expected of a perfect pastors wife to the uncertainty of living authentically and true to her unique calling is equal parts exhausting and exhil- arating. Many Christians condemned her responding with fear or anger to her greater intimacy with Gods calling when it didnt match their own vision. For others though her journey inspired courage to embrace Gods path for their own lives. Now Kelli invites other women to discover Gods leading in their lives learning that if they throw off the despondency of underserved shame abundant life awaits.

It has been intellectually shaped by the rise of science the problem of evil and the nature of the biblical records. Scientist and theologian David Wilkinson engages with the question sharing his insights and struggles. What we believe affects how we pray. Science does not rule out God acting in the universe in surprising ways and the Bible por- trays a God who acts in the world in response to peoples prayers. God is not a slot machine an indulgent parent a divine dicta- tor or a ruler in absentia. But how does He work in a world of science Why doesnt He answer more often How has God acted in history How did Jesus pray and what can we learn from Him How in a world governed by law and grace should we pray There is a mystery about the nature and outcome of prayer particularly in the experience of unanswered prayer. David Wilkinson shares how he has wrestled with this while praying in the midst of his wifes long-term illness. David Wilkinson is the author of God The Big Bang and Stephen Hawking and several other books. He has earned doctorates in both astrophysics and theology.

Our culture now assumes that atheism is the default posi- tionindeed the only position for anyone who wishes to be seen as educated contemporary and urbane. In the media atheism is usually portrayed as scientific and rational versus religion which is seen as stuffy outdated and irrational. Blending humor with serious thought The Atheist Who Didnt Exist will help readers to think a little deeper about the popular claims of atheism. Whether the reader is a Christian who desires to be able to start a conversation with secular friends or simply an agnostic dissatisfied with some of the arguments that pass for serious thought Andy Bannister shows that when it comes to the most important questions of life we need to move beyond sim- plistic sound bites. This is a remarkable and timely book. Apologetics has to mature and evolve into the twenty-first century and this intelligent funny and elegant work is precisely what we are looking for.

Why are such different pictures being painted Sean Oliver-Dee suggests that the disconnect is deliberate. While setting the record straight on church growth he exposes the social and political agenda that underpins the narrative of the death of faith. Author Oliver-Dee proposes that the growth of the church is not being acknowledged because it contradicts three myths that the new establishment wants to assert first the gradual death of religion is a good excuse to ignore the views of Christians on public matters second encouraging Christianity to die would benefit society because religion is perceived as a primary cause of world violence and third there is a trajectory of progress focused around scientific enlightenment which necessitates the death of faith. Gods Unwelcome Recovery reveals how the enduring nature and recent growth of the church runs contrary to all three assertions. Sean Oliver-Dee is a fellow of the Oxford Centre for the Study of Christianity and Culture Regents Park College University of Oxford and the interreligious advisor for the diocese of Peterborough. He is also associate researcher for the Anglican representative to the European Union. He is a regular consultant for government on identity issues and has written several papers for NGOs and think tanks. www.kregel.com 19 CONTEMPOR ARY ISSUES ISBN 978-0-85721-630-4 9 7 8 0 8 5 7 2 1 6 3 0 4 Gods Unwelcome Recovery Why the New Establishment Wants to Proclaim the Death of Faith Sean Oliver-Dee We Dont Do God 978-0-85721-030-2 13.99 Against the Flow 978-0-85721-621-2 19.99 A myth-busting expos about the poor health of religion in Western societies Based on solid evidence of wide- spread church growth Challenges the assumption of an inexorable rise in secular humanism RELATED TITLES UNIQUE SELLING POINTS 978-0-7459-5694-7 17.95 Paperback 5 x 7.75 256 pages Christianity Literature the Arts Lion Books Rights NAR July 27 2015 Explores Lewiss attitude toward womenboth in his life and in his writing With contributions from a group of distinguished scholars commissioned by the C.S.

Hebrews addresses Jews who were in a dangerous position a wave of persecution had caused many of them to drift back to the Jewish synagogues.

Michael Harvey an expert on unlocking the growth God wants to give to the church asks How welcoming can we be if we dont take our welcome outside with the gift of an invitation God sent His Son to invite us all into a relationship and so to be like God is to be a person who invites. During the decade that he has been developing Back to Church Sunday Michael Harvey has conducted an extensive study on the seemingly simple subject of invitation. Over 650 times in twelve countries he has asked Why dont we invite our friends to take a closer look at Christ Exploring the subjects of rejection and acceptance he exam- ines where we have gone wrong.

Imagine how the Hebrews felt during their years of captivity in Babylon. How could they sing the songs they once sang in the spender of Jerusalem now that they sat in exile Christian worship in the West faces many of the same challenges as this tragic account of Israels captivity. By all accounts Christendom is dead and unbiblical beliefs have progressively permeated Western thought expectations and culture. So how should churches respond to this seismic shift in their relationship with an increasingly post-Christian culture while still following the biblical mandate to reach that culture with the gospel of Jesus Christ By the Waters of Babylon will help Christians wrestle through this critical issue of the relationship between Christian worship and evangelistic witness especially in the context of an increasingly hostile culture. The author demon- strates that biblically regulated gospel-shaped corporate worship that communicates Gods truth through appropriate cultural forms will have the most missional impact in a post-Christian context.
