No Unwholesome Word

No Unwholesome Word

Nathan Robertson

God’s design for how people should speak is clear in scripture. In Ephesians 4:29, we are called to let “no unwholesome word” come out from our mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up.

But in a world where words are used as weapons to attack, defame, and wound others, what does this scripture truly mean? How should we handle our own words, and the pain we face from words spoken against us in life?

“No Unwholesome Word” is a raw look at the damage and fear words can inflict on the soul. It also shows the way the Gospel can transform the pain we have experienced because of words, and how we can go forward and speak in such a way that we bring light into the world.

The tongue is a weapon, and it holds the power of both life and death. Which will you choose?

Discipleship that Fits: The Five Kinds of Relationships God Uses to Help Us Grow

Discipleship that Fits: The Five Kinds of Relationships God Uses to Help Us Grow

Bobby Harrington

For far too long, the church has tried to make disciples using a one-size-fits-all approach. Some churches advocate 1-on-1 discipling, others try getting everyone into a small group, while still others training through mission trips or service projects. Yet others focus all their efforts on attracting people to a large group gathering to hear biblical teaching and preaching. But does one size really fit everyone?

Based on careful biblical study and years of experience making disciples in the local church, Bobby Harrington and Alex Absalom have identified five key relationships where discipleship happens in our lives. In each relational context we need to understand how discipleship occurs and we need to set appropriate expectations for each context.

Discipleship That Fits shows you the five key ways discipleship occurs. It looks at how Jesus made disciples and how disciples were formed in the early church. Each of the contexts is necessary at different times and in different ways as a person grows toward maturity in Christ:

Public Relationships: The church gathering corporately for worship
Social Relationships: Networks of smaller relationships where we engage in mission and live out our faith in community
Personal Relationships: Small groups of six to sixteen people where we challenge and encourage one another on a regular basis
Transparent Relationships: Close relationships of three to four where we share intimate details of our lives for accountability
The Divine Relationship: Our relationship with Jesus Christ where we grow through the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit

Filled with examples and stories, Alex and Bobby show you how to develop discipleship practices in each relational context by sharing how Jesus did it, how the early church practiced it, and how churches are discipling people today.

The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three: Discovering the Radical Truth at the Heart of Christianity

The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three: Discovering the Radical Truth at the Heart of Christianity

Cynthia Bourgeault

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In this formula that Christians recite as though on autopilot lie the secrets for healing our world, rekindling our visionary imagination, and manifesting the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. It’s an astonishing claim, but one that is supported by Cynthia Bourgeault’s exploration of Trinitarian theology—and by her bold work in further articulating the deep truth it contains. She looks to the ancient concept in light of the ideas of G. I. Gurdjieff and Jacob Boehme to reveal the Trinity as the “hidden driveshaft” within Christianity: the compassionate expression of the Uncreated Reality in creation.

Who Stole My Church: What to Do When the Church You Love Tries to Enter the 21st Century

Gordon MacDonald

A challenging, innovative approach to a delicate subject. It’s sure to benefit church leaders and members of all ages who dream of a “reinvented” church. —Publishers Weekly

Has your church been stolen out from under you?

A storm hits a small New England town late one evening, but the pelting rain can’t keep a small group of church members from gathering to discuss issues that lately have been brewing beneath the surface of their congregation. They could see their church was changing. The choir had been replaced by a fl ashy “praise band.” The youth no longer dressed in their “Sunday best.” The beautiful pipe organ sat unused. How will this group overcome a deepening rift in their fellowship and nourish the relationship between the young and old? Can their church survive or even thrive?

Who Stole My Church? is a fictional story that tells the all too real tale of many church communities today. In this book you can walk alongside an imaginary community, led by real life pastor Gordon MacDonald and his wife, Gail, and discover how to meet the needs of all believers without abandoning the dreams and desires of any.

What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done

Matthew Aaron Perman

Do Work That Matters Productivity isn’t just about getting more things done. It’s about getting the right things done—the things that count, make a difference, and move the world forward.

In our current era of massive overload, this is harder than ever before. So how do you get more of the right things done without confusing mere activity for actual productivity?

When we take God’s purposes into account, a revolutionary insight emerges. Surprisingly, we see that the way to be productive is to put others first—to make the welfare of other people our motive and criteria in determining what to do (what’s best next). As both the Scriptures and the best business thinkers show, generosity is the key to unlocking our productivity. It is also the key to finding meaning and fulfillment in our work.

What’s Best Next offers a practical approach for improving your productivity in all areas of life. It will help you better understand:

Why good works are not just rare and special things like going to Africa, but anything you do in faith even tying your shoes.
How to create a mission statement for your life that actually works.
How to delegate to people in a way that actually empowers them.
How to overcome time killers like procrastination, interruptions, and multitasking by turning them around and making them work for you.
How to process workflow efficiently and get your email inbox to zero every day.
How your work and life can transform the world socially, economically, and spiritually, and connect to God’s global purposes.

By anchoring your understanding of productivity in God’s purposes and plan, What’s Best Next will give you a practical approach for increasing your effectiveness in everything you do.

Making Marriage Beautiful: Lifelong Love, Joy, and Intimacy Start with You

Making Marriage Beautiful: Lifelong Love, Joy, and Intimacy Start with You

Dorothy Littell Greco

What makes a marriage beautiful? Honesty? Compatibility? Physical and emotional intimacy? All of these are important, but there’s one component that determines the quality and longevity of a marriage more than anything else: a willingness to grow.

Because a wedding joins together two imperfect people, all couples experience disappointment, conflict, and pain. How husbands and wives respond to these challenges determines the kind of people they will become and the kind of marriage they will have.

Making Marriage Beautiful reveals how the pursuit of Christ results in profound transformation for both the individual and the marriage. Rather than offering clichés and formulas, Greco relies on candor, humor, and real life stories to bring encouragement and wisdom to all couples, regardless of whether they have been married four weeks or forty years.
