A Beautiful Design Teen Bible Study Book Book Review:

A study designed to help students understand the biblical view of God's design for men and women. Through nine sessions students will examine gender through the lens of Scripture. For the vast majority of human history, there have been two culturally and socially recognized genders: women and men. Today, many leading social institutions recognize well over fifty variations of gender. There are now biological women who identify as men and biological men who identify as women. There are people who refuse to conform to any one gender and people who are currently one gender but transitioning to another. There was a time when the concept of what made someone a man or a woman was quite simple. In less than a century, culturally speaking, that has completely changed. If there was ever a time when Christians needed to think carefully and biblically about the question of gender, that time is now. Despite our culture's many faceted ideas and designs about gender, there is only one design that truly matters and takes precedent, God's. At the heart of the Christian faith is the belief that God created all things and that He is good. This tell us that God has a design for us, including our gender. In this study, we will seek to uncover and submit to, in Scripture, God's design for men and women.

Marriage is great, but it’s not forever. It’s until death do us part. Then come eternal rewards or regrets depending on how we spent our lives.

In the same way Crazy Love changed the way we saw our personal relationship with God, You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity will radically shift the way we see one of the most important relationships in our life. Jesus was right. We have it all backwards. The way to have a great marriage is by not focusing on marriage. Whether you are single, dating or married, You and Me Forever will help you discover the adventure that you were made for ­­and learn how to thrive in it. 100% of the net proceeds from this book will support various ministries including those that help provide shelter and rehabilitation for thousands of children and exploited women around the world.

To Live Is Christ to Die Is Gain Book Review:

Using Paul's radical letter to the Philippians as his road map, Matt Chandler forsakes the trendy to invite readers into authentic Christian maturity. The short book of Philippians is one of the most quoted in the Bible, yet Paul wrote it not for the popular sound bites, but to paint a picture of a mature Christian faith. While many give their lives to Jesus, few then go on to live a life of truly vibrant faith. In this disruptively inspiring book, Chandler offers tangible ways to develop a faith of pursuing, chasing, knowing, and loving Jesus. Because if we clean up our lives but don't get Jesus, we've lost! So let the goal be Him. To live is Christ, to die is gain—this is the message of the letter. Therefore, our lives should be lived to Him, through Him, for Him, with Him, about Him—everything should be about Jesus.

The Explicit Gospel Book Review:

You know you know it... But then again, maybe you don’t. Even if you go to church, it doesn’t mean that you are being exposed (or exposing others) to the gospel explicitly. Sure, most people talk about Jesus, and about being good and avoiding bad, but the gospel message simply isn’t there—at least not in its specificity and its fullness. Inspired by the needs of both the over-churched and the unchurched, and bolstered by the common neglect of the explicit gospel within Christianity, popular pastor Matt Chandler writes this best-selling treatise to remind us what is of first and utmost importance—the gospel.

Gospel Wakefulness Foreword by Ray Ortlund Book Review:

We may know the gospel. We may believe it—even proclaim it. But we also may assume the gospel and become lethargic. In this book Jared Wilson seeks to answer the central question, how do we experience and present the gospel in a fresh, nonroutine way in order to prevent ourselves and others from becoming numb? His answer may be surprising: “by routinely presenting the unchanging gospel in a way that does justice to its earth-shaking announcement.” We don’t excite and awaken people to the glorious truths of the gospel by spicing up our worship services or through cutting-edge, dramatic rhetoric, but by passionately and faithfully proclaiming the same truths we have already been given in Scripture. Wilson’s book will stir churches to live out the power of the gospel with a fervent, genuine zeal. After an explanation of the term “gospel wakefulness,” Wilson unpacks implications for worship, hyper-spirituality, godly habits, and sanctification, as well as other aspects of church life. Pastors, church leaders, and all in ministry, especially those who are tired or discouraged, will be uplifted, emboldened, and empowered by this book.

When Sinners Say I Do Book Review:

Marriage is the union of two people who arrive at the altar toting some surprisingly large luggage. Often it gets opened right there on the honeymoon, sometimes it waits for the week after. The Bible calls it sin and understanding its influence can make all the difference for a man and woman who are building a life together. When Sinners Say "I Do" is about encountering the life-transforming power of the gospel in the unpredictable journey of marriage. --from publisher description.

Single Dating Engaged Married Book Review:

Navigating the Four Critical Seasons of Relationship The vast majority of young people will still pass through the key phases of singleness, dating, engagement and marriage in their twenties. Yet they are delaying marriage longer than any generation in human history. Why? For the first time in history, the average age for an American woman having her first child, 26, is younger than the average age of her first marriage, 27. More children than ever are growing up in fatherless homes, despite the overwhelming evidence that in every measurable way this is bad for the child. The Center for Disease Control also recently reported a dramatic rise in sexually transmitted disease nationwide. In Rhode Island alone, since the onset of online dating, reported cases of Syphilis has risen 79%, and HIV has increased by 33%. Though many young people can avoid early pregnancy and STDs, most cannot dodge the depression and feelings of isolation that characterize this modern generation. Studies show a dramatic rise in self-reported loneliness among the young. All of our technological connectivity has not made us feel more connected. In many ways, the very screens that are meant to link us to others have become shields blocking us from the deep intimacy we crave. Many have discovered that where there is a lack of intimacy,addiction often rises to take its place. How can a young person navigate such troubled waters? Is there hope out there? Like a sailor on turbulent seas, we need to look up and see the North Star: the fixed points in the sky whereby we might navigate the objective realities in life. We need the skill-set to know how to journey through life and how to select the right people to journey alongside. In this book we will chart a course through the four relational phases that the vast majority of human beings on the planet will pass through in their twenties: singleness, dating, engaged and married. In each of these phases, we will look at what eternal purposes should be pursued in each stage, and how to pursue them. SINGLENESS: DEVOTION DATING: EVALUATION ENGAGED: UNIFICATION MARRIED: MISSION Our desires for intimacy are powerful. This power can be constructive or destructive. Our satisfaction and our safety will be ensured if we can aim these powerful desires toward divine purposes.

Family Discipleship Book Review:

The most important disciple a parent will make is within their own home, and yet this is the most difficult disciple to make. Family Discipleship by Matt Chandler and Adam Griffin helps readers develop a sustainable rhythm of gospel-centered discipleship through a guided framework focusing on moments of discipleship in 3 key areas: time (intentional time gathering your family around gospel activities or conversations), moments (leveraging opportunities throughout the day), and milestones (celebrating significant life events). Each section provides parents with Scriptures to consider, questions to answer, structures to implement, and ideas to try out as they seek to see Christ formed in their children. Here is a book that begins with the end in mind, offering ideas and examples of what gospel-centered family discipleship looks like, helping parents design their own discipleship plan as they seek to raise children in the love and fear of the Lord.

Mingling Souls Upon Paper Book Review:

November 3, 1774, Gloucester, Massachusetts -- When John Murray entered the Sargents' best parlor on that chilly November day, he looked forward to greeting his host, Winthrop Sargent, and warming himself by the fire as they discussed Universalist theology. As a tireless and popular preacher of universal salvation since he had first sailed for the British colonies in 1770, John expected his reception to resemble dozens of earlier such encounters. But this meeting was different because here, in Gloucester, he met Mr. Sargent's daughter. Judith Sargent Stevens was twenty-three years old, lovely, intellectually curious, and devoted to her chosen faith, Universalism. John was a robust thirty-three, a man whose charismatic presence and outgoing personality dominated the room.But Judith was married, and any thought of a romance with John was out of the question. Instead, Judith hoped they could “surely, and with the strictest propriety, mingle souls upon paper” by writing to each other. While few of John's personal letters are known to exist, Judith hand-copied approximately 5,000 of her letters into twenty letter books that were discovered in the library of a former Mississippi plantation. Many of her letters are reprinted here for the first time. The letters in Mingling Souls Upon Paper are Judith's words. They trace her fourteen-year friendship with John, their controversial twenty-seven-year marriage, and their lives together as husband and wife when John was the “choice of her heart” and she was his “ever devoted wife.” They chronicle Judith's blossoming career as the most important female essayist in eighteenth-century America, and John's as the founder of organized American Universalism. Finally, they record John's debilitating illness and death, and Judith's final days without him. All together, the letters cover forty-four years of personal and public lives. Through Judith Sargent Murray's letters, Bonnie Hurd Smith, herself a distant cousin of Judith's, skillfully brings to life two extraordinary eighteenth-century individuals whose love story is timeless.
