Today's advertising media often tries to convince you of what you should want. But what do you really need? Author Maria Goff invites readers to step out of accepting opinions, steps, programs, and second-best options and into discovering a life rich in legacy—a life lived with intentionality, passionate purpose, and a little planning.

Goff's Love Lives Here forwards a collection of stories that not only demonstrate a craving for lasting things that matter, but also includes the copious ways Maria and her husband, Bob, have navigated family their own way—without clear instructions or a road map—to embrace the beautiful, meaningful life God wanted for her and wants for all of us. Goff's stories inspire readers to explore and embrace God's intended purpose for living so that they, too, might create space to grow and live a life of love in action.

Feeling chronically overwhelmed? Discover the power of cross-generational friendships! Exploring an encouraging vision from Titus 2, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth reveals that all women are strengthened when young moms and singles widen their peer groups to include those who've "been there" and when older "veterans" shed their protective cocoons and invest in the next generation.

To get the most out of this book, invite a group of women - older and younger - to read through it together and discuss the questions found at the end of each chapter. You can find additional resources at adornedbook.com.

How should Christians respond to a faith in the margins? Is there a middle path, between those who call for a complete separation and rejection of the world in which we live and those who rationalize and accommodate the world to preserve comfort and privilege?

In a radical new vision for Christianity, Rod Dreher issues a manifesto and clarion call for American Christians to consider how the practices of an ancient Christian way of life—the Benedictine way initiated by sixth-century monk, St. Benedict of Nursia—can be applied and lived out within today's Church.

The Benedict Option offers not only a critique of modern culture from an orthodox Christian perspective, but more importantly, it also extends an invitation for modern lay Christians from every church and confession to embrace and develop communities like those governed by Benedict's Rule—communities rooted in a shared sense of orthodoxy and orthopraxy, blending countercultural biblical faithfulness with a world-engaging, Christ-exalting vision.

From master expositor and Bible teacher John MacArthur comes a revelatory exploration of what the apostle Paul actually taught about the good news of Jesus. In his characteristically candid and pastoral style, MacArthur helps readers obtain a right understanding of the gospel given to us by the Lord—the very same gospel that was put into the mouths and the pens of the apostles, including Paul, and that has been preached for the past 2,000 years—so that it may be proclaimed to the world, as has been commanded. This new exposition not only highlights key passages in Paul's epistles, examining them verse-by-verse, but also unpacks critical lessons regarding the essence, elements, relevancy, and application of the gospel for today's disciples.

Completing the trilogy MacArthur began with The Gospel According to Jesus, this is a clear, compelling, well-reasoned, and thoroughly biblical account of the good news at the heart of Paul's teaching that is comprehensive in its scope while remaining accessible to seasoned pastors and lay readers alike.

What is the living significance of the death of Jesus Christ? Noted pastor and preacher Fleming Rutledge counters contemporary tendency to either speak of the cross in the most general and bland terms or bypass Jesus' crucifixion entirely in The Crucifixion, an examination of the communal, corporate, and cosmic significance of the cross of Jesus Christ.

This series of theological reflections on the death of Jesus Christ throughout Scripture and tradition sketches out the horror of the cross with unflinching honesty and patient exposition, examining in depth all the various themes and motifs used by the New Testament evangelists and apostolic writers to explain the meaning of the cross of Christ. She mines the classical writings of the Church Fathers, the medieval scholastics, and the Reformers as well as more recent scholarship, while bringing them all into contemporary context.

Widely known for her preaching, Rutledge invites scholars and laity alike to grasp the incomparable riches of Christ crucified—the living reality that continues to transform human existence and destiny more than two thousand years later.

Christians are called to transform society, but often culture shapes us. How can we shift our focus from secular gods to the One who made us? Using illustrations from film, literature, and music, James K. A. Smith identifies worship as the "imagination station" that redirects our yearnings to concentrate on God's kingdom as we work to stimulate cultural change.
