  • Doubting: Growing Through the Uncertainties of Faith, By Alister McGrath


    Growing Through the Uncertainties of Faith

    by Alister McGrath
    Foreword by Ravi Zacharias

    We live in a culture that doubts everything as a matter of principle. In such an environment, how can even faith be immune to doubt? Can I really trust in the gospel? Does God really love me? Can I really be of any use to God? We are taught to doubt but commanded to believe. Somehow we think that admitting to doubt is tantamount to insulting God.

  • The Message of Ezekiel, By Christopher J. H. Wright

    The Message of Ezekiel

    The Bible Speaks Today Series

    by Christopher J. H. Wright

    Ezekiel comes to us as a stranger from a distant time and land. Who is this man? He is a priest who, on his thirtieth birthday, has a dazzling vision of God on a wheeled throne; an odd prophet who engages in outlandish street theater and speaks for God on international affairs; and a seer who paints murals of apocalyptic doom and then of a restored temple bursting with emblems of ...

    The Way of Belonging

    Reimagining Who We Are and How We Relate

    by Sarah E. Westfall
    Foreword by Lore Ferguson Wilbert

    The welcome of God changes everything.

Sadly however, the stranger is often ...
