For some its a longing for social justice they dont see Him bringing about. Others fear losing more than they would gain. Still others have been wounded and believe a God of love would have stopped the hurt from happening. In response we create our own kingdoms attempting to organize life to get what we want. The problem is that we are not truly equipped to run our world well no matter how hard we try. Still Restless relates good news God has always had time for honest seekers even when they have hard questions or objections for Him. The proof is in the life of Christ. Jesus met for one-on-one conversations to share the way to truth and life and He rarely used the same approach twice. The gospel is designed for everyone no matter ones experiences or personality. Jan Hettinga walks through these gospel encounters to demon- strate how talking with Jesus is a good thing to do particularly in todays fast-paced modern world. Conversations with Christ lead to a spirituality that shuts down evil and empowers good. They produce a faith that surrenders control right from the beginning embracing the relief of following a leader who cares for you. What would you give to travel back in time to make an appoint- ment with Jesus to talk to God in flesh and ask your questions face- to-face Hettinga uncovers the path to that opportunity today. Get ready for the conversation of a lifetime and a manager you can trust completely. Jan D. Hettinga is pastor of leadership development at Cascade Community Church in Monroe Washington and pastor emer- itus of Northshore Community Church in Bothell Washington. He is also founder of the Northsound Church Planting Network in Seattle and currently serves as chair of MissionsFest Seattle. Hettingas previous work includes Follow Me Experience the Loving Leadership of Jesus. www.kregel.com 3 CHRISTIAN LIVING ISBN 978-0-8254-4390-9 9 7 8 0 8 2 5 4 4 3 9 0 9 Still Restless Conversations That Open the Door to Peace Jan D.

Men are a burden constant works-in-progress pushed toward perfection but always falling short. This book asks a revolutionary question What if these messed-up men are actually a mighty tool for God Tina and Dave Samples remind us that the Bible is filled with a cast of messed-up menmen who struggled and fell and yet were used by God to accomplish His purposes. In fact God has con- sistently chosen imperfect clay pots in which to place His light. David was a poor father. Peter had problems with integrity. Moses had anger issues Gideon struggled with fear and Elijah suffered from depressionthe list goes on. Messed Up Men of the Bible offers encounters with these ancient men who faced the same emotions and questions that contemporary men face in order to reveal fresh spiritual insights and hope for modern rela- tionships. Through personal stories practical advice and useful exercises Tina and Dave provide encouragement and hope for women dealing with the messed up men in their own lives.

Driven demanding women achieve higher positions better salaries and praise for their ambition. They learn to be confident take-charge leaders who can handle anything on their own. Yet when it comes to their marriages those same traits can backfire. After all no one goes into marriage hoping for a promotion. What is a wife to do April Cassidy knows this struggle firsthand. She thought she was a great Christian wife and begged God to make her passive husband into a more loving involved godly leader. Instead God opened her eyes to changes that she needed to make such as laying down her desire for control and offering genuine uncondi- tional respectnot just loveto her husband. The Peaceful Wife focuses on Cassidys experience and its life-changing properties providing a template for others to follow. Cassidys conclusions may be as shocking to readers as they were to her but she backs up her own tale with stories from her blog readers and also includes recommendations for further study. She walks through baby steps on how to change addressing questions such as What is respect How can you show respect How is being respectful different from being loving In the end The Peaceful Wife is a powerful path to Gods design for women to live in full submission to Christ as Lord.

Knowing what those look like can be tricky however. Where do we go to seek them How can we approach them How can we maintain those relationships despite our own weaknesses Sue Edwards is happy to lead the way through Scripture to discover and maintain beloved organic friendships. Pauls letter to early Christians is an ideal place to find these answers. This short letter highlights the skills that strengthen authentic connec- tionsskills like trust humility healthy self-sacrifice a generous spirit and more. It also sheds light on how to overcome toxic connection-killers like envy comparison and critical attitudes. Philipians Discovering Joy Through Relationship works its way through Pauls words as a model for deep authentic commu- nity and healthy relationships between believers. When readers reach the end theyll have a thorough sense of the content of this ancient letter and of its relevance for today. Although Paul was under house arrest he was able to draw joy from his relationships and we can do the same no matter our circumstances. Edwards strives to ensure that this Bible study will do more than transfer intellectual information it will also transform hearts and inspire practice and application.

Andrew grew up in London the son of strongly religious parents. As a child and young man he was frequently ill but his considerable intelligence meant that his studies did not suffer. He set his heart on becoming an anesthetist an ambition he achieved only to be redirected by God to Anglican ministry. Since ordination he has had a considerable role in the work of reconciliation both between Christian and Jew and between Shiite and Sunni. Often in danger and always in pain he has nevertheless been able to mediate between opposing extremes. A man of God he is trusted by those who trust very few. Andrew White is the vicar of St Georges Church in Baghdad where he has gained experience with conflict mediation in Iraq and the wider Middle East. President and CEO of the Foundation for Reconciliation in the Middle East launched in 2005 he has written extensively about conflict resolution and has been involved in many hostage negotiations. He is author of The Vicar of Baghdad and other books. www.kregel.com 11 BIOGR APHY ISBN 978-0-7459-7022-6 9 7 8 0 7 4 5 9 7 0 2 2 6 My Journey So Far Andrew White The Vicar of Baghdad 978-0-8254-6284-9 14.99 Faith Under Fire 978-1-85424-962-3 13.99 Excellent sales for authors previous books Highly visible and charismatic author RELATED TITLES UNIQUE SELLING POINTS 978-0-8254-4376-3 16.99 Paperback 6 x 9 176 pages Biblical Studies Old Testament Kregel Publications Rights World September 27 2015 Practical scriptural discussions of tough topics such as polygamy genocide and the role of women in the Old Testament The God of the Old Testament can seem very foreign to Christians.

Those stories have now gone on to entertain generations of children around the world.

But what about when He deserts disciplines and damns Is God schizophrenic moving in and out of opposing personalities One minute gentle shepherd the next angry judge How does that reconcilewiththeimageofGodpopularinevangelicalchurches loving forgiving and shepherding us When we worship only part of God we worship a false God. Below the surfaceon the level of reality that goes deeper than sentimental feelingswe know that if God is only love He isnt enough. He must also be absolutely just dreadfully mighty and perfectly holy. He needs to reward what is right. But He also must punish what is wrong. He needs to redeem the lost. But He must also thwart the wicked. Yet we seem to prefer the partial phony to the awful reality. WhyIsntGodNiceunfoldswhyaGodoflovesometimesseems so unloving. And how a person going through hard times can learn to embrace a God who allows such difficult circumstances.

Why shouldnt gays get married Who says gay sex is wrong Does the Bible actually say theres anything wrong with homosexuality Dont you care that kids are being bullied just for being themselves To start the discussion Gilson provides a brief history of the issues beginning with the sexual revolution of the 1960s. He explains how and why cultural attitudes have reversed on this subject in such a short timespan leaving Christians scrambling for answers. This is perhaps the most complicated and contentious issue Christians face in todays culture. Most churches are poorly equipped to handle it parents are even less prepared. The good news is that parents need not have pat answers ready before they dive into conversations with their teens and preteens on this dif- ficult topic. Learning togetherparents struggling through these issues alongside their kids and leading them to biblical answers has relational benefits. Answers are important though so manageable nontechnical answers to common questions surrounding this issue are pro- vided as well as a guide to further resources.

Immensely popular in Foxes own sixteenth century its influence has been felt throughout literature. Copies of the original text Acts and Monuments were chained beside the Bible in churches of England and even sailed with English pirates. This was not a book designed to comfort but instead to present the truth of the persecution faced by Protestant Christians in hostile environments. The inscription from the 1563 editionnow com- monly known as Foxes Book of Martyrsindicates the gravity of the task In latter and perilous days ... the great persecutions and horrible troubles ... are here gathered and collected according to true copies and writings ... of the parties themselves that suffered. Foxe was committed to commemorating the ultimate sacrifice of those who gave their lives for the sake of their faith. Paul L. Maier brings his exceptional mind for history to bear on Foxes work in this new edition. While abridgement of the original 2100 pages was necessary Maier does include every martyr and text was changed only where modern readers may not readily under- stand the original archaic wording. John Foxe 15161587 was an academic and zealous student of the Scriptures leading to his persecution as a Protestant by the Catholic rulers of his day. Beyond his work in pastoral ministry Foxe contin- ued to work on his martyrology until his death. Paul L.

Studying biblical prophecy is about much more than pre- dicting end-times events. Rather a proper approach to prophecy acknowledges that the threads of prophecy crisscross throughout Genesis to Revelation forming the fabric of canonical Scripture. This is why having a good grasp of the prophetic genre is essential for understanding the message of the entire Bible. Authors Alan Bandy and Benjamin Merkle not only offer thoughtful and careful explanations of individual biblical prophecies but also give the reader the big picture of how all prophecy relates to and should be interpreted in light of Jesus Christ. This book examines the nature themes purposes and the- ology of biblical prophecy and provides a framework for how to interpret any passage in the context of the Bible as a whole. Alan S.

But why does the apostle Paul end his letter to the Corinthians with a benediction naming the triune God in a different order Son Father Spirit In fact there are six possible arrangements for naming the Trinity each of which is used numerous times in the New Testament. Analyzing the seventy-five New Testament references to the persons of the Godhead theologian Rodrick Durst demonstrates that the ways the early church thought and talked about the Trinity had a great deal of richness and diversity that has since been lost. From the context of these passages Durst concludes that each order of the three names corresponds to a particular purpose or movement of God that the New Testament author is invoking mission salvation witness to Christ sanctification spiritual for- mation and Church unity. These six Trinitarian orders reveal Gods calling to join Him in six different works. Durst guides the reader through the significance of each for- mulation and how it can powerfully shape the twenty-first-century church and believers formation worship witness and work. Rodrick K.
