Beautiful Resistance


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In a time of compromise and disillusionment, God is calling his people to a movement of beautiful resistance. We live in a time when our culture is becoming increasingly shallow, coarse, and empty. Radical shifts in the areas of sexuality, ethics, technology, secular ideologies, and religion have caused the once-familiar landscape of a generation ago to be virtually unrecognizable. Yet rather than shine as a beacon of light, the church often is silent or accommodating. This isn’t a new phenomenon. During World War II, pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer was deeply troubled by the compromise in the German church. Their capitulation to the Nazi party brought shame and dishonor to the gospel. In response, he helped create an underground movement of churches that trained disciples and ultimately sought to renew the church and culture of the day. In our compromised church, we need new underground movements of discipleship and resistance. Widely respected New York pastor Jon Tyson unveils a revived vision for faithful discipleship—one that dares to renew culture, restore credibility, and replace compromise with conviction. For all who have felt this conflict in the soul between who we are and who God calls us to be, Beautiful Resistance is a bold invitation to reclaim what’s been lost—regardless of the cost. Praise for Beautiful Resistance “Beautiful Resistance is one of the most compelling and defiant books I’ve read in a long time. I love Jon’s radical, no-messing vision of the church as a prophetic community. This is a wake-up call for us all from the heart of a man who lives his message, loves his city, and serves his Lord with a passion and intelligence destined to become less rare.”—Pete Greig, founder of the 24-7 Prayer movement

Media Choices


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The digital age emerged suddenly on the world's timeline and has drastically changed the shape of culture. Consequently, today's entertainment has become one of the biggest stumbling blocks to spiritual growth and family health in our nation. Parenting teens was a noble challenge long before society became surrounded by captivating screens, and navigating life as a teen had plenty of difficulties and distractions long before the game changing technology of the smartphone. The bottom line is that parents and teens are both in need of help! Our generation is faced each day with an all-you-can-eat media buffet. It has a huge influence on how we think, how we spend our time, and how we relate to others. It can also affect our relationship with God. Christians have been eager to keep up with the sweeping changes but have fallen far behind in Biblical wisdom. There is a growing need for media discernment in the light of following Jesus. Very few authors have broached the topic of media literacy from a Christian worldview. Phillip Telfer handles this challenging subject deftly with story-driven analogies that serve as a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. While this does not conclude with a call to be anti-media or anti-technology, it does raise concerns about the unchecked enthusiasm regarding media and entertainment, which are often consumed without discretion. This book will help you discover the Biblical principles that can inspire reasonable convictions. Learn how God's word addresses the unique challenges we face today. This book can help parents and teens discover how and why to guard their hearts and find freedom in this media captive culture.

Without Compromise

A collection of groundbreaking investigations by Wayne Barrett, the intrepid, muckraking Village Voice journalist who exposed corruption in New York City and beyond.

Educating With Love And Without Compromise


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Educating with Love and Without Compromise is the stirring, heart-wrenching tale of educating children in one of the most impoverished and crime-ridden communities in the nation. It is one educator's story of returning home to provide hope, education, and leadership to a school, a community, and children who far too many people and even the system itself had given up on. Faced with challenges ranging from children forgotten by society and neglected at home, to teachers and bureaucrats who question the investment of time and resources in certain schools and communities, Educating with Love and Without Compromise is the story of one man's struggle to prove that children can succeed in struggling schools and rise from troubled communities. This easy-to-read, enjoyable tale is sure to both inspire and empower everyone that cares about and loves children. Among immense poverty, incompetent and uncaring teachers, an apathetic system, and an ever expanding, deadly drug turf war, Darryl Gilliam has come back "home" to lead the education of over 1,000 elementary school students. Faced with these challenges, he is armed with two core beliefs about the education of children. First, they must always have expressions and examples of love in and around their lives. Second, that under no circumstances should educators and adults ever compromise high expectations when it comes to the learning and lives of their students. Armed with these two core beliefs, boundless energy, and a focused plan for educational change, Gilliam works to inspire the same sense of passion and commitment around those around him as he embarks on a personal and professional journey that will take him beyond the walls of the school. Educating with Love and Without Compromise is a heart-wrenching, uplifting tale that will bring its readers into the real, often unglamorous work of educating children who often sit on the margins of classrooms, schools, and society. Dr. Steve Gallon III is a native of Miami, Florida. A graduate of Florida A & M University, he holds a degree in English Education, as well as a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership and a Doctoral Degree in Educational Administration and Supervision from Florida International University.

Evangelical Exodus


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Over the course a single decade, dozens of students, alumni, and professors from a conservative, Evangelical seminary in North Carolina (Southern Evangelical Seminary) converted to Catholicism. These conversions were notable as they occurred among people with varied backgrounds and motivations—many of whom did not share their thoughts with one another until this book was produced. Even more striking is that the seminary's founder, long-time president, and popular professor, Dr. Norman Geisler, had written two full-length books and several scholarly articles criticizing Catholicism from an Evangelical point of view. What could have led these seminary students, and even some of their professors, to walk away from their Evangelical education and risk losing their jobs, ministries, and even family and friends, to embrace the teachings they once rejected as false or even heretical? Speculation over this phenomenon has been rampant and often dismissive and misguided—leading to more confusion than understanding. The stories of these converts are now being told by those who know them best—the converts themselves. They discuss the primary issues they had to face: the nature of the biblical canon, the identification of Christian orthodoxy, and the problems with the Protestant doctrines of sola scriptura ("scripture alone") and sola fide ("faith alone")
