The Next Story
Now in softcover, featuring a new chapter on protecting your family's web security. From laptops to desktops, tablets to smartphones, and on to the latest in wearables, we are pressed from all sides by advances in digital technology, affecting all layers of life. Yet though we live in this instant, always-connected culture, many of us feel disconnected and wonder if all this technology is really good for our souls. In The Next Story, Tim Challies engages a number of pressing questions: How has life—and faith—changed now that everyone is available all the time through mobile phones? How does our constant connection to these digital devices affect our families and our church communities? What does it mean that almost two billion humans are connected by the Internet…with hundreds of millions more coming online each year? In a manner that’s accessible, thoughtful, and biblical, Challies' freshly updated book for the 2015 digital world provides pastors with a framework they can apply to any technology. It also explains how and why our society has become reliant on digital technology, what it means for our lives, and how it impacts the Christian faith.

The Bible and the University (Scripture and Hermeneutics Series)
Now in softcover. Over the years, there has been something of an identity crisis in the disciplines of biblical studies and theology. Where universities once were the anchor for theological thought, these disciplines are now often marginalized and confused as to meaning and purpose. The Bible and the University addresses this crisis by offering a series of essays, which consider: the historic role of the Bible in the university; the status of theological reflection regarding Scripture among the disciplines today; the special role of Scripture in the development of law, the humanities and social sciences; the way the Bible speaks to issues of academic freedom, intellectual tolerance, and religious liberty. In this final volume of the Scripture and Hermeneutic Series, a group of distinguished scholars have sought to help academics and pastors alike understand the role of the Bible in relation to academic disciplines in a fresh way. Contributors Include: Dallas Willard William Abraham Al Wolters Scott Hahn Glenn Olsen Robert C. Roberts Byron Johnson Robert Cochran, Jr. David I. Smith John Sullivan Robert Lundin C. Stephen Evans David Lyle Jeffrey.

Canon and Biblical Interpretation (Scripture and Hermeneutic Series)
Now in softcover. Canon and Biblical Interpretation is a masterful examination of the canonical approach to interpreting Scripture, and the various criticisms that have been leveled against it. Chapters explore canonical interpretation in relation to different parts of the Bible, such as the Pentateuch, the Wisdom books, the Psalms, and the Gospels. Articles address such issues as canonical authority and the controversial relationship between canonical interpretation and general hermeneutics. Drawing on a broad array of contributors, volume seven of the Scripture and Hermeneutics Series assesses the current state of canonical interpretation and uses that as a starting point for exploring ingredients in theological interpretation of the Bible today.

In the Great Commission, Jesus commanded his followers to go into the world and make disciples, teaching them to obey all that Jesus had said. But the very first “great commission” was given much earlier—to parents. In Deuteronomy 6, God calls parents to the task of discipleship in raising their children. Dedicated is the book that will empower parents to fulfill God's call on their life to disciple their kids in the ways of the Lord. In today’s busy world, many parents feel overwhelmed and aren’t sure what to do—or even where to begin. In their practical, essential book, Jason Houser, Bobby Harrington and Chad Harrington unpack how it looks to spiritually parent and disciple children in the home. Ideal for both family and discipleship pastors, this book is an inspirational training manual that will equip parents to pass along their faith to the next generation.
