A note to our friends: Many small businesses can’t even operate right now. We’re grateful to God that we can, and we’ve always been a work-from-home company. But it’s a challenging time for us financially, so if you appreciate the books we’ve been offering here since 2010, we could really use your support in this season. Thank you for considering this.
Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23).

Eight clear, inspiring, biblical answers to the most vital question of human existence.
When so much of the stability and predictability of daily life seems to be thrown into question right now, it is vital that we get and stay grounded in our most essential, true, eternal, and unchangeable identity in Christ, the hope of glory. Best-selling author Jerry Bridges (The Pursuit of Holiness, The Discipline of Grace, The Bookends of the Christian Life, and many other titles) turns to Scripture to unpack these interlocking, illuminating answers.

Turn your world on its head.
For more than thirty years, John Piper pastored in the rough-and-tumble realities of downtown Minneapolis, preaching his people through the ups and downs of life one Sunday at a time. Here are the ten trademark truths of his ministry that were established in that time.
These ten are world-shaking truths—each astonishing in its own way. First they turned Piper’s own world upside down. Then his church’s. And they will continue to turn the whole world upside down as the gospel of Christ advances in distance and depth. These surprising doctrines, as Piper writes, are “wildly untamable, explosively uncontainable, and electrically future-creating.”
Join a veteran author, pastor, and Christian statesman as he captures the ten astonishing, compassionate, life-giving, joy-awakening, hope-sustaining truths that have held everything together for him.
Pioneer missionaries in a South American village face life-and-death choices they never thought they would have to make.
In an updated Dickens tale, a college professor encounters an ethereal demonic doppelganger of himself who offers to wipe away his dark past.
Addy’s three friends don’t know what to think when she tells them she “whooshed” right back into time and met a quirky Leonardo daVinci. Is it a dream? And what do the girls do when they have just as much drama in the present?
Like Paul caught up to the third heaven, Tim Carler (in a case of biblically faithful “heaven tourism”), finds himself in the Intermediate State with an unexpected collection of departed saints and a series of divine missions back on earth.
Suffering – selected titles
In love, God will do whatever it takes, even allow a pandemic, to replace our feeble pleasures with lasting desire for himself.
“Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.” –Hosea 6:1
Torn to Heal is a super-quick read at just 90 pages. Its distinctive offering is its treatment of the two primary enemies to suffering well:
_Dualism — The pervasive, false view of God and man that will cripple your confidence in God’s sovereignty.
_Stoicism — An expression of self-reliance that will block you from casting your anxieties on God and receiving the peace that surpasses all understanding.
“The most concise, readable, and helpful theology of suffering I’ve come across. The content, length, and tone are just perfect.”
—Dr. David Murray, author (Re-Set; Refresh; many more); pastor; professor
“A clear, comforting, theologically robust view of pain and suffering. A book you’ll easily pass out to those in who are feeling the sting of Adam’s curse.”
—Dan Darling, author; Vice President for Communications, ERLC
Also endorsed by Lore Ferguson Wilbert, Trevin Wax, Timothy Paul Jones, and more
Foreword by Joni Eareckson Tada
Twenty-one surgeries by age thirteen. Years in the hospital. Bullying. Multiple miscarriages. The death of a child. A debilitating progressive disease. Riveting pain. Abandonment. Unwanted divorce.… And God gave Vaneetha something better than deliverance: his sustaining grace.
“Will make you weep and rejoice.”
—Paul David Tripp, pastor, author, international conference speaker
“I could not put this book down,
except to wipe my tears.”
—Gloria Furman, author of Missional Motherhood and Alive in Him
“Vaneetha Risner’s credibility
makes us willing to lean in and listen.”
—Nancy Guthrie, author of Hearing Jesus Speak into Your Sorrow
“Raw, transparent, terrifying, and yet amazingly hopeful.”
—Brian Fikkert, co-author of When Helping Hurts
We’re all praying God will spare the lives of our loved ones.
We’re praying, yet the questions remain. What exactly happens to those who die as Christians? What do they immediately experience? What is their existence like right now? What will happen to them when Christ returns? What comfort and assurance does Scripture offer you? What can you truly know and be confident of?
This book has been called by reviewers a priceless treasure … a rare guidebook to teach us how to grieve with godliness … relevant to us all — if not for today, then no doubt for tomorrow … a genuine balm for the wounded spirits of fellow sufferers … solid evangelical truth delivered in an intensely personal manner … a sound biblical eschatology of death … clears up all fuzzy thinking of what happens to a loved one who dies in Christ … theology coming forth as gold from the fire of personal loss … lessons in grieving as those who truly have hope.

Miscarriage: deeply traumatic, tragically common, too often misunderstood.
Couples navigating the unique sorrow of losing a child are often left with little biblical counsel to draw upon. Well-meaning friends and family often offer empty platitudes and Christian clichés. But what these couples truly need is the hope of the gospel.
Short, sensitive, and theologically robust, Inheritance of Tears offers hope and comfort to those who are called to walk through the painful trial of miscarriage, and shows pastors and church members how to effectively minister to these parents in their time of need.
