The Company We Keep

In Search of Biblical Friendship

>> Our Newest Title! <<

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

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.

Hit List

Taking Aim at Seven Deadly Sins

>> Coming in November – Pre-order now! <<

Wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, gluttony…often associated with the legalisms of Roman Catholicism, the “seven deadly sins” have in fact been a focus of believers for millennia, and are still a useful set of categories for all sin. In this book, Brian Hedges unpacks each one, providing a biblical definition, a clear set of symptoms, and ways to go about killing off that particular form of sin. While the Big 7 will be with us until Christ returns, they don’t have to be deadly any more.

>> Coming in October — Preorder now! <<

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).

Reviving Adam

Why the Story of Creation is Good, Beautiful, and True

>> Coming in 2015 – Pre-order now! <<

Does Darwin’s story leave Christians hanging? No, for as Christians our story, the one God wrote for us and presented to us, is far better.

Indeed, ours is the best story of all. We don’t need to run to another. The story of creation is the best because it is good, beautiful, and true. This book explains why.
