|Let the Nations Be Glad!|
By John Piper
Worship as the fuel for missions makes sense to a lot of people, but worship as the goal of missions? Piper reminds us that the true reason we share God with others is to make them worshippers (and sharers) as well. He feels that the true goal of missions is "the gladness of the peoples in the greatness of God." If it is true, (as Piper states) that "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him," then increasing the number of people who are satisfied in God will bring God more glory. And missions is the way we can do that.
|Ashamed of the Gospel|
By John MacArthur
Ashamed of the Gospel bears a message the church just can't ignore: that we dare not be ashamed of communicating the convicting message of the Gospel. That we dare not candy coat it. Or make the church so user-friendly that the preaching of God's Word is compromised. MacArthur reminds today's church of the inevitable spiritual consequences if Christians continue to compromise biblical doctrine and the preaching of the Gospel. This masterful work challenges the church to return to the roots of the Great Commission and encourages a steadfast preaching of the Word of God.
|The Gospel According to Jesus|
By John MacArthur
What did Jesus mean when he said, "Follow me"? In this revised and expanded classic, MacArthur warns against the "easy-believism" proclaimed by many today, explains his understanding of biblical faith and works, emphasizes the high cost of discipleship, and reinforces his conviction that there is no eternal life without surrender to the Lordship of Christ.
|Nothing But The Truth|
By John MacArthur
How would you respond to this comment: "Christianity is an unhealthy religion that browbeats people with judgment." The tendency may be to snap back. But, drawing from 1 Peter 3:15, MacArthur shows you how to stand up for your faith with gentleness, reverence, and intelligence---just as Christ wants you to do.
By Charles Spurgeon
When Jesus returned to heaven, He left us with a mission--continue His work of bringing lost souls home to the Father. Charles Spurgeon accepted this mission and personally escorted thousands of people in the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. In this book, Spurgeon crystallizes the wisdom and experience of a lifetime as a soulwinner.
|Why Won't They Listen|
By Ken Ham
The power of creation evangelism. In this truly bold book, Ken Ham presents an ambitious plan to fulfill the Great Commission. He deftly exposes the great flaws of Darwinism, and shows how compromise with this philosophy of death is killing the Church. By urging Christians to stand on the veracity of the Bible, Ham clears the jungle of tangled views of reality, and helps committed Christians see the path to effective evangelism.
|Why Won't They Listen? Study Guide & Workbook|
By Ken Ham
Using this workbook/study guide, you can learn even more in depth how the world views the Christian message, how creationism factors into the equation, and practical steps to becoming a better witness for Christ. Every chapter has questions that can be used either for discussion and/or to "fill in the blank"; an answer key is included in the back.
|Evangelism & Sovereignty of God|
By J.I. Packer
If God is in control of everything, why should Christians evangelize? Does our focus on outreach imply a lack of faith in His sovereignty? In this concise classic, Packer defends two paradoxical truths---God's sovereignty and his command to "make disciples"---concluding that a correct understanding of divine power shouldn't prevent evangelism but encourage it.
|Hells Best Kept Secret|
By Ray Comfort
Discover the crucial key needed to unlock the unbeliever's heart. If you are experiencing evangelical frustration over lost souls, unrepentant sinners, and backslidden "believers," then look no further. This radical approach could be the missing dimension needed to win our generation to Christ.
|Telling the Truth|
By D.A. Carson, ed.
This thoughtful cultural analysis probes important turning points of biblical theology, describes successful contemporary evangelism, and exposes readers to the strategy and practice of Christian thinkers who are reaching the postmodern world.
|The Gagging of God|
By D.A. Carson
Is Jesus the only way to God? This clear, critically-acclaimed, scholarly response to that question affirms the deep need for the Gospel's exclusive message in today's increasingly pluralistic global community. The Gagging of God offers an in-depth look at the big picture, shows how the many ramifications of pluralism are all parts of a whole, and then provides a systematic Christian response.
|Defending Your Faith|
By R.C. Sproul
In the universities, media, and workplace, Christian beliefs are undermined daily---can you fight for what's right? Outlining the history and fundamentals of apologetics, Sproul explains how reason and scientific inquiry offer strong allies for defending your faith. Great for group study, it equips you for more than just winning arguments, but for changing minds!
|Reason to Believe|
By R.C. Sproul
With his trademark passion for truth and for intellectual rigor, Sproul works through 10 common objections to Christianity. ''All religions are good, it doesn't matter what you believe.'' ''The church is full of hypocrites.'' ''The Bible contradicts itself.'' This is no collection of pat answers with a couple prooftexts; Sproul challenges the skeptic and encourages the believer.
By C.S. Lewis
C.S. Lewis sought to explain and defend the beliefs that nearly all Christians at all times hold in common. His simple yet deeply profound classic, originally delivered as a series of radio broadcasts, is a book to be thoroughly digested by believers and generously shared with skeptics.
|More Than a Carpenter|
By Josh McDowell
This classic by McDowell is still consistently one of the top titles in apologetics! McDowell gives readers thought-provoking insights into the events surrounding Christ's life and asking whether they could all be explained by coincidence. Asking the hard questions about the reliability of biblical records, psychological profiles of disciples and apostles (would they die for a lie if the stories are not true?) and whether or not Jesus can be considered simply a good man who spoke some wise words, McDowell shows the light of truth while not overwhelming the reader with too much text. Designed as a missions and evangelism tool.
|The Life and Diary of David Brainerd|
Edited by Jonathan Edwards
Frail, tubercular, and prone to depression, Brainerd was an unlikely candidate for missionary work. Yet in the 18th century, he converted hundreds of Native Americans through his example of self-denial, commitment to prayer, and devotion to Christ. Edited by Jonathan Edwards, Brainerd's firsthand account chronicles his amazing ministry---one that continues to shape today's missions.
By Sinclair Ferguson
The Pundit's Folly answers the question, is the pathway to personal significance and lasting satisfaction impossible to find? By means of the experiences described in the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes (the Pundit of the book's title). It unmasks the false promises of happiness which the world offers and uncovers the dissatisfactions, longings and needs of the heart in order to point to the source of true satisfaction in Jesus Christ. Written specifically to help non-Christians, The Pundit's Folly is a tool for evangelism.
|Truth Unchanged Unchanging|
By Martyn Lloyd-Jones
What is man? What is wrong with the human race? Unless we answer these questions correctly, we can not hope to solve the problems in our world - problems such as crime, exploitation, greed, proverty, pollution and war. Obviously those who shape social policy today are offering the wrong answers. In this masterful apologetic for the gospel, Dr Lloyd-Jones exposes these flaws in modern thinking, especially in the "scientific approach." Jones shows decisively that the true remedy for our ills is in Jesus Christ - and Him alone.
