Ask a group of Christians what they think about poverty, sex trafficking, or the orphan crisis, and you'll probably get a pretty quick response. But ask that same group about gay marriage or abortion, and you'll most likely be faced with a lot of nervous hesitancy or fuzzy answers.

In this day when social issues are creating clear dividing lines in society, moral and political neutrality is not an option for those who believe the gospel. It's simply not enough to focus on only those issues that are most comfortable--and least costly--to us.

Join David Platt as he invites us to fix our gaze on the holiness, goodness, love, truth, justice, authority, and mercy of God revealed in the gospel and to live with conviction, courage, and compassion in the midst of a culture that is drifting further from the truth every day. Hardcover.

Feeling stuck in the same old, same old? Life carries on, but the Christian life has become a bit more routine and less extraordinary?

The Israelites knew what that was like. After the show of power in the plagues, and divine rescue from Pharaoh, they spent 40 years in the wilderness. 40 long years waiting. They were free from the tyranny of Egypt, but not free from fear, or free from the temptation to chase other gods.

In Glory Days, Max Lucado looks at the life of Joshua and the challenges Israel faced, showing how God spoke in the midst of their wilderness experience. Just like Israel, you can find the strength to thrive in the desert. You can close the distance between the person you are, and the person you want to be. These can become your best days. Glory days.

Have you ever come to the end of yourself? Maybe it was that day when your life changed forever. The day that your house was foreclosed on, you discovered your spouse was having an affair, or you were told you only had months to live. In those moments, all the plans, dreams and ambitions you had for yourself came to a crashing halt. And you discover that all you have left is Jesus.

In The End of Me, Kyle Idleman explores these difficult moments by looking at four of the beattitudes from the Sermon on the Mount. In the first section of the book, each chapter will focus on a different paradoxical teaching of Christ. In the second half, you'll look at real-life examples of people who have lived the upside-down life that Jesus describes. Only when you come to the end of yourself will you begin to be transformed into the whole, blessed person God made you to be.

Shortly after his 95th birthday in 2013, Mr. Graham, knowing that his time on earth draws to a close, declared,"When I die, tell others that I've gone to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ--that's where I am."

In each of these short 36 chapters, he explains what the Bible says about eternity, and the reality that each of us chooses where we'll spend life after death. Whether you're drawing closer to that moment of eternal significance, or simply considering the Bible's claims, Graham's words will give you faith to believe in Jesus' promise that, "Where I am, there you may be also."

While your heart might be in the right place, it is not unusual to feel uncomfortable or insecure when you're around loved ones who are in the midst of a trial.
