  • What Is Gods Mission In The World And How Do We Join It

    $12.99

    What does God’s mission look like? Who is supposed to carry it out–and how?

    Juan F. Martinez and Jamie Pitts lead us on an inquiry into God’s mission in the world: what it is, what it is not, and who is invited to be part of it. If Jesus is truly God’s mission incarnate, we need to look at what Jesus did and how he did it. Martinez helps readers understand what mission means, why Christians in the past have made missteps, and how we can learn from Christian communities that are spreading the good news of Jesus today. Doing mission in the way of Jesus may look different from what many assume, but it is a call that the church cannot afford to miss.

  • Who Are Our Enemies And How Do We Love Them

    Who are our enemies? And what would it mean to love them?

    Hyung Jin Kim Sun leads us on an exploration of God’s call to love our enemies. What did Jesus demonstrate and teach about loving enemies? How is nonviolence connected to Christian faith and spirituality? Isn’t violence sometimes necessary? Does loving our enemies really work? What is the goal of enemy love and how can it be applied in our everyday lives?

  • At The Rivers Edge

    $1.00

    * A special supplement to the Heart of the Restoration Series.

    The text of this booklet is drawn from the book Unveiling Glory: Visions of Christ’s Transforming Presence, by Jeff Childers and Fred Aquino. The book’s theme is that salvation in Christ Jesus is dominated by the lifelong experience of being transformed into his image. By gazing on the Lord’s glory with unveiled faces (2 Corinthians 3:18), we find ourselves being changed, over time, to fit the picture we see in him. Chapter 3 of the book focuses especially on Jesus’ baptism and his call to discipleship, a call so vivid and so compelling that we chose to adapt that material for this brief study.

  • Unveiling Glory : Visions Of Christs Transforming Presence

    $16.99

    Why did Jesus come to earth in the flesh and live among us? In what sense did he both embrace this world and reject it? How should our view of Christ form the way we live and act as Christians in our families, neighborhoods, nations, and churches? Unveiling Glory seeks to address these topics and others, boldly considering many of the problems facing Churches of Christ today and insisting that the key to their resolution lies in a deeper commitment to Jesus.

    The introduction establishes the premise for the book when it declares that “approaching Christ with transformation in mind has not always been a key element in…our heritage. Yet we are convinced that whenever scripture is allowed to speak with its full voice, the notion of Christianity as transformation into the image of Christ becomes inescapable.” The book seeks to deliver on this promise, leading the reader through the important events in Jesus’ life and unveiling their significance for the Christian today.

  • In Search Of Christian Unity

    $28.95

    The decision to publish a revised and updated edition of In Search of Christian Unity was reached because the earlier edition was found to be a useful text and resource in numbers of college and seminary classrooms. All texts that treat historical movements and institutions have continuing significance and relevance need frequent updating, and it is hoped that the present work will fulfill this need for the Stone/Campbell movement, currently entering its third century. The author has been pleased by the positive reception accorded the earlier edition by historians and students in each of the three branches of the Stone-Campbell heritage…

  • Renewing Gods People

    $15.99

    Did Churches of Christ really begin as a unity movement? Why didn’t I know that?”

    “You mean we used to be called Disciples of Christ? I thought that was just another denomination.”

    “Churches of Christ today believe and practice the same things we have from the beginning, don’t we?”

    Statements like these by members of Churches of Christ reflect a serious lack of knowledge of our past and an increasing desire by many to know more of their heritage. This desire has led us to believe there is a need for a brief account of the history of Churches of Christ. This book hopes to serve newcomers and even long-time members of the church by giving them insights into our heritage. It also is an introduction to this significant group of churches for those unfamiliar with its place in American Christianity.
