This beautifully illustrated hardback book takes children on a journey from the garden of Eden to God's prefect new creation.
Retelling the Easter story through a Bible overview, children will discover that 'because of our sin, we can't go in' but because of Jesus' victory on the cross, an even better garden awaits us...
Faithful, theologically rich children's books are a rare treat in Christian publishing. Laferton has provided us one of the best little treatments of biblical theology available for parents to read to their children. The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross not only teaches children stories in the Bible but the story of the Bible - one that culminates in the atoning work of Jesus Christ who gives broken sinners access to God. This book is a tremendous resource for parents and children who want to better understand the grand storyline of Scripture.
-- R. Albert Mohler - President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
I am so excited about this book! It is colorful, engaging, and creative, and that's just the icing on the cake! Our children receive invitations to participate in many different stories stories of who they are, their purpose, and what God is like. The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross is a brilliant re-telling of the one story that rules all other stories. I cannot commend this book highly enough. Read it to your children, give it to your neighbors, and talk about what it means to live in light of the fact that the curtain has been torn.
-- Gloria Furman - Cross-cultural worker, author of The Pastor's Wife and Missional Motherhood
This is quite superb. Beautifully written and illustrated, this tells the story of the gospel so captivatingly that little ones will want to read it again and again. I'm sure it will win many young lives to Christ.
-- Michael Reeves - President and Professor of Theology at Union School of Theology, Oxford; author of Rejoicing in Christ
Brilliant. You will want to read this with your children. Clear story-telling combines with evocative artwork, and the gospel shines through.

What Do All Christians Believe?
For many people, words like doctrine and theology cause their eyes to glaze over, or they find them difficult to understand and struggle to see how they are relevant to daily life. But theology is far from boring; it is the study of God and should lead to awe and wonder as we better understand who God is and what he has done for us.
In Core Christianity, author, pastor, and theologian Mike Horton tackles the essential and basic beliefs that all Christians share. What is core to the Christian faith? In addition to unpacking these beliefs in a way that is easy to understand, Horton shows why they matter to our lives today.
This introduction to the basic doctrines of Christianity is a helpful guide by a respected theologian and a popular author, and it includes discussion questions for individual or group use. Core Christianity is perfect for those who are new to the faith, as well as those who have an interest in deepening in their understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ.
By Nabeel Qureshi

From New York Times bestselling author and former Muslim Nabeel Qureshi comes this personal, challenging, and respectful answer to the many questions surrounding jihad, the rise of ISIS, and Islamic terrorism.
San Bernardino was the most lethal terror attack on American soil since 9/11, and it came on the heels of a coordinated assault on Paris. There is no question that innocents were slaughtered in the name of Allah and in the way of jihad, but do the terrorists’ actions actually reflect the religion of Islam? The answer to this question is more pressing than ever, as waves of Muslim refugees arrive in the West seeking shelter from the violent ideology of ISIS.
Setting aside speculations and competing voices, what really is jihad? How are we to understand jihad in relation to our Muslim neighbors and friends? Why is there such a surge of Islamist terrorism in the world today, and how are we to respond?
In Answering Jihad, bestselling author Nabeel Qureshi (Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus) answers these questions from the perspective of a former Muslim who is deeply concerned for both his Muslim family and his American homeland.
Knowing the Living God
By Paul Washer
Knowing the Living God is the first book in Paul David Washer's Biblical Foundations for the Christian Faith series by Media Gratiae. This workbook can be used as a 13-week study for individuals, families, Sunday school classes, small groups, and churches. Only the truths of Scripture, understood with the mind and communicated through doctrine, can provide that sure foundation upon which we should establish our beliefs and our behavior and determine the validity of our emotions and experiences. The study of doctrine is both an intellectual and devotional discipline. It is a passionate search for God that should always lead the student to greater personal transformation, obedience, and heartfelt worship. Knowing the Living God is primarily a biblical study and does not contain much in the way of colorful illustrations, quaint stories, or even theological expositions. It was the desire of the author to provide a work that simply points the way to the Scriptures and allows the Word of God to speak for itself. The great goal of this study is for the student to have an encounter with God through His Word. Founded upon the conviction that Scripture is the inspired and infallible Word of God, this book has been designed in such a way that it is literally impossible for the student to advance without an open Bible before him or her. Paul Washer's previously published work, The One True God, has been massively expanded, revised, and modified--with about one hundred pages of additional material--to become the first book of his Biblical Foundations for the Christian Faith series by Media Gratiae. The Biblical Foundations for the Christian Faith Series: Book One: Knowing the Living God Book Two: Discovering the Glorious Gospel Book Three: Discerning the Plight of Man Book Four: Understanding the Discipline of Fasting Book Five: Studying the Holy Scriptures
What about Free Will?: Reconciling Our Choices with God's Sovereignty
By Scott Christensen
List Price: $17.99
Price: $16.10 & eligible for FREE Shipping on orders over $35.
Christensen explains two views that acknowledge God's sovereignty and its relation to human responsibility: compatibilism and libertarianism. Providing cogent, biblical answers, Christensen argues for compatibilism and shows how it makes sense of evil, suffering, prayer, evangelism, and sanctification. You will gain a deeper understanding of both arguments, as well as a greater appreciation for the significant role that choices play in God's work.
"A clear, intelligent, immensely helpful overview of one of the most confusing conundrums in all of theology. . . . Scott Christensen doesn't sidestep the hard questions. The answers he gives are thoughtful, biblical, satisfying, and refreshingly coherent. Lay readers and seasoned theologians alike will treasure this work." --John F. MacArthur, Grace Community Church
"Careful in description and argument . . . eminently readable. . . . Most important of all, this book breathes a spirit of wonder and gratitude before the face of a God who is not only all-powerful but good." --Michael Horton, Westminster Seminary California
"Many think that free will is the silver-bullet answer to some of theology's most difficult questions. But do we have a free will? Short answer: it depends on what you mean by 'free.' Long answer: read this book." --Andrew Naselli, Bethlehem College and Seminary

"Sweetly Set on God": The Piety of David Brainerd
By Dustin W. Benge
Price: $10.00 & eligible for FREE Shipping on orders over $35.
Sweetly Set on God introduces readers to the life and journal writings of David Brainerd (1718-1747), best remembered for his missionary work among the American Indians. Dustin Benge begins by presenting the events of Brainerd's short life and the intense personal spiritual piety that undergirded his pioneering missionary work. Then, in fifty-one excerpts drawn from Brainerd's journal, readers will discover his evangelical humiliation, his understanding that God had altered his sinful human nature, his sensitivity to sin, and his holiness of life. Read this book and come to view Brainerd as Jonathan Edwards, his biographer, did: as 'a remarkable instance of true and eminent Christian piety in heart and practice.'
