Everything Must Change$19.99Add to cart
Status-quo Christianity has traded the revolutionary story of Jesus for familiar cliches, pat answers, and domesticated programs. McLaren states, “More and more Christian leaders are beginning to realize that for the millions of young adults who have recently dropped out of church, Christianity is a failed religion…It has focused on ‘me’ and ‘my eternal destiny,’ but it has failed to address the dominant societal and global realities of their lifetime…” What he sets forth in this provocative, unsettling work is a “form of Christian faith that is holistic, integral, balanced, that offers good news for both the living and the dying, that speaks of God’s grace at work both in this life and the life to come, both to individuals and to societies and the planet as a whole.”

Picturing The Gospel$25.00Add to cart
IVP Print On Demand Title
In our image-based culture, people need to visualize something to understand it. This has never been more true about our communication of the gospel. But sometimes our understanding of the gospel gets stuck in a rut, and all we know is a particular outline or one-size-fits-all formula. While we hold to only one gospel, the New Testament uses a wealth of dynamic, compelling images for explaining the good news of Jesus, each of which connects with different people at different points of need. Neil Livingstone provides a guided tour of biblical images of the gospel and shows how each offers fresh insight into God’s saving work. Walking through Scripture’s gallery of pictures of salvation from new life to deliverance, from justification to adoption, Livingstone invites us to deepen our understanding of the gospel. By letting the truth and power of each permeate our lives, we will be better able to articluate the life-changing gospel of Christ to a world that needs to taste–and see–that the Lord is good.
Mensaje Secreto De Jesus – (Spanish)$14.99Add to cart
Brian Aclaren, uno de los “25 Evangelicos mas influyentes en los Estados Unidos” de la Revista TIME”, regresa y esta vez para llevar a los lectores en una travesia que sera turbulenta y estremecedora, como tambien emocionante y transformadora. Sin temor a la controversia o a los tabues de la vida, la busqueda de McLaren es hallar la esencia del mensaje de Jesus, aunque esto signifique un vuelco a nuestras ideas convencionales, prioridades y practicas. “A traves de los anos, frecuentemente he tenido un sentimiento de incomodidad” escribe McLaren, “Que el retrato de Jesus encontrado en el Nuevo Testamento no se ajusta con las imagenes de Jesus en la iglesia”. De este sentimiento de incomodidad nacio este libro, prometiendo ser el mas revolucionario que haya escrito McLaren hasta la fecha. En el nos escribe: “Quisiera compartir mi busqueda con usted, e invitarle a que usted sea parte de ella. No quiero danar el final, pero esto le dire: cuanto mas avanzo en esta busqueda del mensaje de Jesus, mas me inspiro, soy conmovido, desafiado, sacudido y motivado.”
Generous Orthodoxy : Why I Am A Missional Evangelical Post Protestant Liber$14.99Add to cart
Why I am a missional, evangelical, post/protestant, liberal/conservative, mystical/poetic, biblical, charismatic/contemplative, fundamentalist/Calvinist, Anabaptist/Anglican, Methodist, catholic, green, incarnational, depressed- yet hopeful, emergent, unfinished Christian. A confession and manifesto from a senior leader in the emerging church movement. A Generous Orthodoxycalls for a radical, Christ-centered orthodoxy of faith and practice in a missional, generous spirit. Brian McLaren argues for a post-liberal, post-conservative, postprotestant convergence, which will stimulate lively interest and global conversation among thoughtful Christians from all traditions. In a sweeping exploration of belief, author Brian McLaren takes us across the landscape of faith, envisioning an orthodoxy that aims for Jesus, is driven by love, and is defined by missional intent. A Generous Orthodoxy rediscovers the mysterious and compelling ways that Jesus can be embraced across the entire Christian horizon. Rather than establishing what is and is not “orthodox,” McLaren walks through the many traditions of faith, bringing to the center a way of life that draws us closer to Christ and to each other. Whether you find yourself inside, outside, or somewhere on the fringe of Christianity, A Generous Orthodoxy draws you toward a way of living that looks beyond the “us/them” paradigm to the blessed and ancient paradox of “we.” Also available on abridged audio CD, read by the author.
