Such desperately cheery responses from your students don’t fool you—you’ve been in youth ministry long enough to sense when they’re up to their ears in life’s tough stuff. You know it better than most adults: There’s just a lot of brokenness out there—families splitting up and recombining, abuse of all kinds (physical, psychological, sexual, substance), rampant sexual pressures, violence, isolation . . . the list seems endless. So let Tough Stuff be your guide through these deep and painful issues. It’s a 12-session curriculum that not only familiarizes you with the complex roots and symptoms of these major hurts, but also informs and inspires your high schoolers on dealing with them from the inside out.Tough Stuff can start the healing process in the areas of— Denial (escaping denial and admitting our pain) Parents (God is the perfect parent—not Mom or Dad) Masks (removing the facades and living confidently as the real you) Abuse (healing the hurts of abuse from the inside out) Forgiveness (how forgiveness sets us free) Temptation (resisting temptation and breaking addictions) Boundaries (how boundaries affect . . . everything!) Orientation (making sense of gender identity) . . . and more. And don’t think you’ll be doing all the talking—Tough Stuff is full of engaging and provocative teaching tools: improv and drama, thematic worship, video and music clips, inductive discussions, as well as creative exercises.Tough Stuff is everything you need to navigate your kids through the heartrending realities that they (and their friends) are facing daily. Get into this curriculum, and let the healing begin.

While some Christian ministries warn of impending world-changing events and signs of the end times, Paul Lindberg points us back to God’s story of redemption. In “The Feasts of Israel: God’s Plan of the Ages,” Lindberg sees the children of Israel as the very heart of God’s perfect plan to redeem all mankind. He calls the seven feasts of Israel “God’s little picture book,” with each feast telling an essential part of the redemption story. Lindberg says, “Israel’s feasts become our invitation into the presence of God, just as much now as when they were given to Israel.”
And we have received God's Spirit (not the world's spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us” (1 Corinthians 2:11-12 nlt).

Jesus routinely taught with parables and earthly stories that resonated with people’s daily experiences. His lessons were personable and memorable, and enabled his followers to grasp profound spiritual revelations of the word of God. In Do it God’s Way and Get God’s Results, Pastor Roy Bacon emulates Jesus’ approach. He entwines authentic, thought-provoking anecdotes with each chapter theme to present Biblical truths more lucidly and reveal the benefits of choosing God’s way in every aspect of life. Throughout the book, he examines two alternatives to life’s results: choosing God’s way of doing things or choosing our way. The final chapter is a brief portrait of the life of Jesus Christ, our greatest example of how to do things God’s way and get His results. Do it God’s Way and Get God’s Results is not a how-to guide for overnight success, but biblically grounded advice for obtaining God’s best, now and in your future.

Are human beings a mere product of the cosmos with no future in eternity? Or are we infinitely more valuable than any other creatures on earth? Can we put a price tag on human life? How should we treat marginal members of society: those whiling away empty days in nursing homes, the terminally ill, the unborn child? Norman Geisler believes that many of us have become confused about these vital issues. In 'Knowing the Truth about Creation', he delves into the biblical, philosophical, and scientific case for the Christian view of creation. The result is a fascinating look at creation and the Creator.

WHY BAD STUFF HAPPENS TO GOOD PEOPLE: is a book loaded with intrigue, suspense, mind disturbing questions, and eventually the answer given somewhere in the book, not disclosed. Many questions both Christians and secularists ask concerning this topic is similar concerning the guilt and innocence of children, which are answered here with no apology. You may be shocked but you may also be the judge! This read is compared to twelve other writers on the subject with diverse and bizarre answers to the question WHY, which are challenged here and in my opinion offering no answer to this hunting question of WHY. “The Final Answer” is in this book found nowhere else in any literature.

The Cambridge Edition of Early Christian Writings provides the definitive anthology of early Christian texts, from c.100 to 650 CE. Its six volumes reflect the cultural, intellectual and linguistic diversity of early Christianity and are organized thematically on the topics of God, practice, Christ, community, reading and creation. The series expands the pool of source material to include not only Greek and Latin writings, but also Syriac and Coptic texts. Additionally, the series rejects a theologically normative view by juxtaposing texts that were important in antiquity but later deemed 'heretical', with orthodox texts. The translations are accompanied by introductions, notes, suggestions for further reading and scriptural indices. The first volume focuses on early Christian writings about God's nature and unity, and the meaning of faith. It will be an invaluable resource for students and academic researchers in early Christian studies, history of Christianity, theology, religious studies and late antique Roman history.
