Here I Walk: A Thousand Miles on Foot to Rome with Martin Luther

Andrew L. Wilson

A Thousand-Mile Pilgrimage with Martin Luther

In 2010, Andrew Wilson and his wife, Sarah, walked in the footsteps of Martin Luther, re-creating his famous pre-Reformation pilgrimage from Erfurt to Rome. Their trek was well publicized, with coverage in the Christian Century, First Things, the Wall Street Journal, and Books & Culture. They were also interviewed by travel expert Rick Steves on his popular radio program. As they walked their journey of a thousand miles over seventy days, thousands of readers followed along on the Wilsons’ blog.

This engaging narrative brings readers along as Andrew and Sarah traverse Europe, visiting sites such as Coburg Castle, Ulm’s Münster, the Alps, Milan, Florence, and Rome. Their journey provides a unique window into the history of the Protestant Reformation and a creative entryway into the life of Luther. The book also reflects on the contemporary ecumenical significance of the events of the Reformation, exploring what the changes of the past 500 years mean for the Christian present and future.

Beautifully written and enjoyable to read, Here I Walk offers a unique combination of firsthand travel narrative, fascinating explorations in history, and theological and spiritual reflection. Pictures, maps, and an afterword by Sarah Hinlicky Wilson are included.

Shaped by the Gospel: Doing Balanced, Gospel-Centered Ministry in Your City (Center Church)

Shaped by the Gospel: Doing Balanced, Gospel-Centered Ministry in Your City (Center Church)

Timothy Keller

It is easy to assume that if we understand the gospel and preach it faithfully, our ministry will necessarily be shaped by it—but this is not true. Many churches claim to be gospel-centered but do not have a ministry that is shaped by, centered on, and empowered through the gospel. The implications of the gospel have not yet worked their way into the fabric of how that church does ministry.

Gospel-centered ministry is more theologically driven than program driven. To pursue it, we must spend time reflecting on the essence, the truths, and the very patterns of the gospel itself. The gospel is neither religion nor irreligion, but something else entirely—a third way of relating to God through grace. In Shaped by the Gospel, bestselling author and pastor Timothy Keller addresses several current discussion and conflicts about the nature of the gospel and shows how faithful preaching of the gospel leads to individual and corporate renewal.

This new edition contains the first section of Center Church in an easy-to-read format with new reflections and additional essays from Timothy Keller and several other contributors.

Awakening the Evangelical Mind: An Intellectual History of the Neo-Evangelical Movement

Awakening the Evangelical Mind: An Intellectual History of the Neo-Evangelical Movement

Owen Strachan

The first major study to draw upon unknown or neglected sources, as well as original interviews with figures like Billy Graham, Awakening the Evangelical Mind uniquely tells the engaging story of how evangelicalism developed as an intellectual movement in the middle of the 20th century. Beginning with the life of Harold Ockenga, Strachan shows how Ockenga brought together a small community of Christian scholars at Harvard University in the 1940s who agitated for a reloaded Christian intellect.

With fresh insights based on original letters and correspondence, Strachan highlights key developments in the movement by examining the early years and humble beginnings of such future evangelical luminaries as George Eldon Ladd, Edward John Carnell, John Gerstner, Gleason Archer, Carl Henry, and Kenneth Kantzer.

Martin Luther: A Guided Tour of His Life and Thought

Martin Luther: A Guided Tour of His Life and Thought

Stephen J. Nichols

Protestants of all stripes have long read at least a few of Martin Luther’s works, but 21st-century readers need guidance and encouragement. Stephen Nichols’s Martin Luther provides both.

After an exciting overview of Luther’s life and theology, Nichols orients the reader to some of the Reformer’s major works: The Bondage of the Will, The Three Treatises, The Small Catechism, and On the Councils and the Church. Luther’s ethical writings, “table talk,” hymns, and sermons also receive due attention. “A Select Guide to Books by and about Luther” concludes this volume, which displays more than 20 illustrations.

“I have chosen the texts and issues that seem to be both pivotal and prominent in Luther’s thought,” writes Nichols. “This encounter is intended to serve as the gateway for further exploration in his life and thought.”

“How do you write a book that’s easy to read and yet is theologically precise? How do you do a book on everything from training of children to hymns to preaching to political conflict—and have it always full and running over with the glorious gospel, which Luther found again for the whole Christian world? Well, Nichols has done it.” —D. Clair Davis

Raised?: Finding Jesus by Doubting the Resurrection

Raised?: Finding Jesus by Doubting the Resurrection

Jonathan K. Dodson

Did Jesus really beat death? That’s what Christians have believed for hundreds of years, that Jesus Christ returned to life after death and burial in a stone tomb. To the modern mind, “resurrection” is utterly implausible, but it was also doubtful to many first-century Greeks, Jews, and even some Christians. With such an incredible assertion at the heart of the Christian faith, it’s no wonder that some people struggle to believe.

Unlike any other book on the resurrection, Raised? encourages you to doubt in order to believe. Too often Christians look down on doubt, but in Christ, we see a person who welcomes doubt and encourages faith. Jonathan Dodson and Brad Watson don’t shy away from the hard questions or settle for easy answers. They help you to see how the resurrection offers hope for the future and answers for the life and death questions we all face.

“I encourage Christians and non-Christians alike to read this book. . . . provocative, illuminating, and succinct.”

–Eileen Flynn, former religion reporter for Austin American-Statesman and Journalism and religion lecturer at the University of Texas

Dodson and
Watson write both for those who have never believed and for those who do
believe, who have said the creeds and prayed the Lord’s Prayer again and again
yet who find themselves wondering, doubting, sometimes troubled by the
undertones of a nagging question, sometimes staggered by a sudden conviction
that the Resurrection is utterly preposterous. This book is itself an act of pastoral
ministry, a winsome invitation to faith and discipleship.

–John
Wilson, Editor, Books & Culture

Hundreds of
books have been written about this, but Raised?
is strikingly different. It take doubt seriously, situates the resurrection
in a grander biblical narrative, and clarifies meanings of words that are so
often misunderstood. The subject matter of Raised?
makes this book important, but the approach taken by Dodson and Watson is
what makes it all matter. Read it expectantly!”

–Jonathan Merritt, author of Jesus is
Better Than You Imagined

“Wonderfully demonstrates the plausibility of the resurrection of Jesus and the possibilities for a life of hope.”

–Sean McDonough, professor of New Testament at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and author of Christ as Creator: Origins of a New Testament Doctrine

This is a
very good, easy-to-read work that is both engaging and gospel-centered. Read
it! Be encouraged by it! Share it with others that they
may cross the river of the resurrection!

–J. D. Payne, pastor of church multiplication, The Church at
Brook Hills, author Evangelism: A
Biblical Response to Today’s Questions, blogger @ jdpayne.org

“As a
leadership team, we were looking for the perfect resource to put in the hands
of 1000 people coming through the doors on Easter Sunday morning. It had to be
short, accessible, easy to read, culturally relevant, theologically sound, and
skeptic friendly. Our standards were high. Raised? met every one of
them!”

–Josh
McPherson, Lead Pastor, Grace City
Church, NW Network

The Norman Conqueror robbed Steinar of Talisand of his noble father and his lands, forcing him to seek refuge in Scotland while still recovering from a devastating wound. At the royal court, Steinar becomes scribe to the unlettered King of Scots while secretly regaining his skill with a sword.

The first time Steinar glimpses the flame-haired maiden, Catrìona of the Vale of Leven, he is drawn to her spirited beauty. She does not fit among the ladies who have come to serve the devout queen. Not pious, not obedient and not given to stitchery, the firebrand flies a falcon!

Catrìona has come to Malcolm’s court wounded in spirit from the vicious attack on her home by Northmen who slayed her parents and her people. But that is not all she will suffer. The king has promised her to one of his favored warriors, but she has given her heart to a lowly scribe.

When all is lost, what hope is there for love? Can a broken heart be mended? Can a damaged soul be healed?
