Bread-winner. Bear-hunter. Artist. Leader. Father. Husband. Son.

Men are confronted with dozens of expectations on who they are supposed to be and what role they should be filling. By looking at history, the clichés of manhood, and what intimacy with God looks like—this short book will offer up hope and a new perspective for men (and women) to rethink what it means to be a man in today’s culture.

Counselor and pastor Rhett Smith works through the tough aspects of defining masculinity such as:

Can we look up to role models without following their flaws?
Is it possible to strike a balance between passivity and aggression?
How can we take care of others without neglecting ourselves?

When Christ calls us to follow Him, He … Read More »

You will be creating for the rest of your life. You might as well do it on purpose.

As stressed-out adults with the very real pressures of relationships, careers, finances, and raising families, our experiences in the elementary school art room have been relegated to the “happy memory” part of our brains, with no real value to us now.

However, the biggest concern we adults often face is the spiritual crisis of self-value—of “What’s my place in this world?”

If we travel back to our seats in the art room, art teacher Matt Appling shares three God-given keys to answer that very question. These are lessons we knew as 5-year-olds and must learn again to recapture the contented, joy-filled, and productive lives … Read More »

When your community needs a reminder of God’s bigger story in their lives…

All the best stories have a few things in common—sometimes, we just have to step back from our daily routine to see them. First, we need the voice of a narrator or a storyteller. Then, add in some interesting characters, throw them into a risky setting, and get ready for a good dose of conflict. Give those characters a purpose or goal and then…well, then the real action begins!

When we recognize the elements of a great story, we begin to see our lives as a part of God’s story. Then, we’ll better understand what He has for us, what we should believe about this story, and … Read More »

You’ve heard the stats by now: the Millennial generation is leaving the church.

Walking away in disillusionment and frustration, they are looking for new communities to welcome them. As they seek to follow Jesus, they are leaving the churches they grew up in to find a new way.What will it look like as the two largest generations today intersect in leadership of the church?

In an attempt to exemplify the story of Millennials and seek answers for the future, Paul Nyquist, President of Moody Bible Institute, has teamed up with his son, Carson Nyquist, to share an honest and thoughtful conversation on this topic. As father and son they’ve experienced this generational disconnect, both personally and in the church.

We believe there is tremendous power in each person’s story.

Inciting Incidents combines the unique stories from six creatives (artists, musicians, writers, thinkers, and leaders) managing the tensions between their faith, their place in life, and their work as artists.

It is a collective call to face life’s imperfections and difficulties while attempting to do the great things we all want to do. By capturing this next generation’s battle between idealism and reality-which is where so many of us find ourselves existing each day-these storytellers pave the way for a better understanding of those moments that truly shape us.

The reader will be challenged to use their own art and their own life stories to find their way in God’s … Read More »



Why Holiness Matters

When was the last time you thought about holiness?

God’s specific command for holiness: “Be holy, for I am holy,” (in Leviticus 11, 19, and in 1 Peter 1) is an idea rephrased and repeated throughout the Bible. But somewhere along the line, we started to believe it doesn’t matter.

Because of our misunderstandings of sin, holiness, innocence, and God, His command rings hollow in the action of our faith.

–Sin (we view it as either inevitable or we just go with it)
–Holiness (we view it as unrealistic or we ignore it because there’s no immediate payoff)
–Innocence (we view it as subordinate to “experiencing the world”), and
–God (we often think he’ll probably let us down-just like so many people do).

But, what if there was a different … Read More »



Unseduced and Unshaken

We can’t afford to live casually, haphazardly.

Our lives press on at a breakneck pace. So much so that it becomes difficult to even react well-never mind proactively seeking out responsible – conscious choices. Unseduced and Unshaken is that rare resource with a collective eye on the past and a keen grasp of where we need to go.

Written for this next generation of Christian women-who are now making so many critical life-choices-these words deal truthfully on today’s shaky ground of personal responsibility.

Understanding life with a God-centered point-of-view includes thinking carefully about what we women do with our education, our spiritual existence, our leisure, and the importance we place on our intellect, and our bodies. Our choices are physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. We must think wisely about them. We must … Read More »

What life are you afraid to live?

Wrecked is about radical sacrifice and selfless service–how we find purpose in the midst of pain. It’s a look at how we discover fulfillment in the least likely of places. It’s about living like we mean it.

Perhaps never being the same again isn’t such a bad thing. This book is for us–a generation intent on pursuing our life’s work in a way that leaves us without regrets, a way to guide growing up and giving your life away, helping you live in the tension between the next adventure and the daily mundane.

Author Jeff Goins shares his own experience of struggling as a missionary and 20-something who understands the call to live radically while dealing with the everyday responsibilities of life. Wrecked is a manifesto … Read More »



The Road Trip That Changed the World

Is life really about the journey and not the destination?

Like the characters in a Jack Kerouac novel, we’ve dirtied the dream of white picket fences with exhaust fumes. The new dream is the open road and freedom. Yet we still desire the solace of faith. We like the concept of the sacred, but unwittingly subscribe to secularized, westernized spirituality.

We want to be a part of something meaningful, but not bound by it. We’re convinced that there is a deeper plot to this thing called life, yet watered-down, therapeutic doses of religion are all we choose to swallow. Furthermore, we are content to have our own personal story trump any larger narrative.

This is the noncommittal culture of the road: drive on freely, disregard destination.

But Jesus proved that the journey doesn’t … Read More »



Anxious Christian

Posted on May 2nd, by npernia in Available Now, Books. Comments Off on Anxious Christian

What will I do after graduation? Who should I marry? Where should I look for work? What will my friends think? What if my marriage is falling apart? What if I’m drowning in debt?

In our journey of faith there are particular moments that produce a certain amount of anxiety. Often anxiety and/or worry has been looked upon as an “un-Christian” feeling to have. Can God use your anxiety for good?But The Anxious Christian  conveys the message that anxiety can actually be helpful in our spiritual formation, and that God can use anxiety as a catalyst to move people forward in their life of faith. In that movement, anxiety’s gift is that it allows us to face our resistance and fears, understand where those fears come from, and then make intentional choices about important issues such as career, marriage, money, and … Read More »
