Manhood Restored: How the Gospel Makes Men Whole by Eric Mason (B&H. 9781433679940. Paperback. $14.99)
“Eric Mason has served us well with this book. To give us
pragmatic steps alone would be insufficient and in the end
unhelpful. Our souls are broken. To put gas in a car that doesn’t run is an exercise in futility. Eric starts where we all must start, the power of the gospel to heal us and transform us into what we were created for. He doesn’t stop there and ends the book powerfully on what the gospel empowers us to do. Read this slowly and prayerfully. Its bold, fearless, Scripture saturated, truth-telling pages might just be used by the Spirit of God to take you into a new season of fulfillment and maturity in your understanding what it means to be a man.” — Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church
I Am a Church Member: Discovering the Attitude that Makes the Difference by Thom S. Rainer (B&H. 9781433679735. Hardback. $12.99. Sale – $7.99)
This book started a conversation about the attitudes and responsibilities of church members — rather than the functional and theological issues — that previous new member primers all but ignored. Thoughtfully expanded to book form, it begins to remedy the outbreak of inactive or barely committed church members, addressing without apology what is expected of those who join a body of believers. When a person’s attitude is consistently biblical and healthy, matters of giving, serving, and so forth will fall into place more naturally.

Trusting Jesus is hard. It requires following the unseen into an unknown, and believing Jesus’s words over and against the threats we see or the fears we feel. Through the imaginative retelling of 35 Bible stories, Not by Sight gives us glimpses of what it means to walk by faith and counsel for how to trust God’s promises more than our perceptions and to find rest in the faithfulness of God.
