Release Date: 2006-07-18
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

What happens when a nineteen-year-old boy leaves home and heads into the jungles to evangelize a murderous tribe of South American Indians? For Bruce Olson, it meant capture, disease, terror, loneliness, and torture. But what he discovered by trial and error has revolutionized then world of missions. Bruchko, which has sold more than 300,000 copies worldwide, has been called “more fantastic and harrowing than anything Hollywood could concoct.” Living with the Motilone Indians since 1961, Olson has won the friendship of four presidents of Colombia and has made appearances before the United Nations because of his efforts. Bruchko includes the story of his 1988 kidnapping by communist guerrillas and the nine months of captivity that followed. This revised version of Olson’s story will amaze you and remind you that simple faith in Christ can make anything possible. “[Bruchko is] an all-time missionary classic. Bruce Olson is a modern missionary hero who has modeled for us in our time the reaching of the unreached tribes.” --Loren Cunningham Co-founder, Youth With A Mission

In 1962, Don and Carol Richardson risked their lives to share the gospel with the Sawi people of New Guinea.

Steering away from abstractions, Peterson challenges conventional wisdom regarding church marketing, mega pastors, and the church’s too-cozy relationship to American glitz and consumerism to present a simple, faith-based description of what being a minister means today. In the end, Peterson discovers that being a pastor boils down to “paying attention and calling attention to ‘what is going on now’ between men and women, with each other and with God.”

Christian Devotedness

Author: Anthony Norris Groves
Publisher:
ISBN: 1897117973
Release Date: 2010-03
Genre: Religion

In Christian Devotedness, Groves takes two complementary principles from scripture and attempts to persuade the reader with other scriptures and illustrations. Some will be tempted to think that what is presented in these pages is an ideal goal that may be aimed at by some, but is never really meant to be practiced in the lives of common men. But this is the message which Jesus preached to the common man. The disciples also preached and practiced these principles. The truths in this book are enduring, not because the arguement is made with great, convincing, or eloquent words, but because they are the timeless truths of God.

A Better Story

Author: Glynn Harrison
Publisher: SPCK
ISBN: 9781783594511
Release Date: 2017-01-19
Genre: Religion

The architects of the sexual revolution won over the popular imagination because they knew the power of story. They drew together radical new ideologies, often complex and hard to grasp, and melded them into the simpler structure of narrative. Crucially, they cast narratives that appealed to the moral instincts of ordinary, decent people. This moral vision overwhelmed the church and silenced its faltering apologists. The author argues that if Christians still believe they have have good news in the sphere of sexual ethics, then two big tasks lie ahead. Our first priority is to work out what has gone so badly wrong, both in our understanding and application of what the Bible teaches and the way we have presented our case to the non-churched. And then we must offer a better story, one that fires the imagination with such force that people will say, 'I want that to be true.' This book offers a confident, biblically rooted moral vision which needs to be shared with prayer and courage.
