The Secret of Spiritual Joy

>> Coming in May. Pre-order now. <<

Most Christians consider gratitude a “fly over” virtue; a secondary quality not nearly as important as things like love, justice, and servanthood. This book contends the opposite. God does not consider gratitude (or thanksgiving) secondary. Instead, the apostle Paul commands us to “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” This book argues that thanksgiving is the secret to spiritual joy. It explains why it matters, and why the gospel is the rationale for a life that models God’s command to “overflow with thanksgiving” (Colossians 2:7).

Inheritance of Tears

Trusting the Lord of Life when Death Visits the Womb

>> Coming in March – Pre-order now! << / Endorsed by Jen Wilkin, Russell and Maria Moore, Trillia Newbell, Wendy Alsup, Courtney Reissig, many more…

Miscarriage is deeply traumatic and tragically common, yet so often misunderstood or trivialized. This book provides much needed biblical counsel on this subject, through the compassionate heart of a mother who has known miscarriage.

“She guides us theologically, so that we see God’s wisdom, God’s purpose, and God’s love in the midst of our suffering. I gladly recommend this work to others.” (Tom Schreiner, SBTS)




Good News About Satan

A Gospel Look at Spiritual Warfare

Our Newest Title! / Foreword by Jerry Bridges / Endorsed by Dr. John Frame of Reformed Theological Seminary; Justin Taylor, author, and blogger at The Gospel Coalition; Aimee Byrd; Mike Cleveland; more…

The bad news of Satan, while serious, is overshadowed by the good news of Jesus. Here are the plain teachings of Scripture regarding Satan, demons, and spiritual warfare from a perspective that makes paramount the sovereignty of God and the finished work of Christ. Containing none of the unfruitful speculations so common to this topic, we believe it differs significantly from virtually every other book on the subject.




Hit List

Taking Aim at the Seven Deadly Sins

Foreword by Bob Lepine

“With the exception of John Owen, no author has helped me so understand the mortification of sin.“ (Dave Dunham)

Hit List is a great book! Hedges brings the historic framework of the seven deadly sins into the 21st century. Brian’s reading and research into historic Christian theology enriches this readable and thoroughly biblical examination and treatment of ‘the big seven.’” (Tedd Tripp)




After They Are Yours

The Grace and Grit of Adoption

Foreword by Dan Cruver / Endorsed by Bob Lepine of Family Life Today, Kelly Rosati and Dr. Sharen Ford of Focus on the Family, Jedd Medefind of Christian Alliance for Orphans, many more…

After They Are Yours talks transparently and redemptively about the often unspoken problems adoptive parents face, but it is ultimately “a compelling story about saying yes to God and then watching the Father shape and redeem his sons and daughters through love, grace, and mercy” (Kelly Rosati).




The Company We Keep

In Search of Biblical Friendship

Foreword by Ed Welch / Endorsed by Alistair Begg, Tim Lane, Wesley Hill, Bob Kellemen, Deepak Reju, many more…

Deep, honest, pure, transparent, liberating…and attainable. The core of biblical friendship, what sets it apart from all the world can offer, is that it flows from Jesus Christ. Biblical friendship—desperately needed in the Church today—finds its origin, purpose, and power in Jesus. When shaped by this life-changing truth, everyday friendship can be transformed into something of a different order: biblical friendship.
