Hit List : Taking Aim At The Seven Deadly Sins$9.99Add to cart
Pride, envy, wrath, sloth, greed, gluttony, lust. Early church fathers warned of them. Advertisers play to them. But doesn’t Scripture teach that all sin is equally damning? Is there any reason for modern Christians to study the seven deadly sins?
According to Brian Hedges, there is. “These sins were considered capital sins not because they were the worst, but because they were gateway sins. These seven nest deeply in our hearts and engender whole broods of further sins.” In Hit List: Taking Aim at the Seven Deadly Sins, Hedges gets to the root of these vices. He also shows how the gospel is the only solution to these age-old problems.
We may recognize these sins by their names, but we are often misled by the subtlety of their methods. In Hit List, Brian Hedges helps us take aim at the seven deadly sins by providing detailed dossiers for each one and equipping us with rich gospel resources for replacing vice with the virtue of Christ.
Active Spirituality : Grace And Effort In The Christian Life$14.99Add to cart
In Active Spirituality, Brian Hedges allows us to read someone else’s mail. In a series of warm pastoral letters, written to a young Christian, he dives into the paradox of grace and effort in the life of faith.
Is my Christian life about trying or trusting? Would I describe my relationship to God as running or resting? Is my life more characterized by grace or effort?
Hedges makes it clear that it is both: trying and trusting, running and resting, dependence on grace and exerting disciplined effort. This balance is not about getting my doctrine right, but is key to living a healthy Christian life.
So pull up a chair, settle in, and read over Chris’s shoulder as he tries to find a church, overcome discouragement, live a chaste life, and develop a plan for spiritual growth, all while learning to rest in the finished work of Jesus.
Licensed To Kill$9.99Add to cart
The Christian life is not a playground, but a battleground. One of the fiercest foes in this battle dwells within our own hearts: the enemy of indwelling sin. The Scriptures command us to “put sin to death.” This is what pastors and theologians of another generation called the “mortification” of sin. But how do we mortify sin? And what role does the gospel play in this effort to apply lethal force against sin? How can we avoid falling into legalism while still maintaining a passion for holiness? And what kinds of strategies actually work in the daily battle? These are questions I have personally wrestled with as both a Christian and a pastor. This book is my attempt to answer those questions and provide a biblical and practical guide for the war against sin.
