Raising a Modern-Day Knight: A Father’s Role in Guiding His Son to Authentic Manhood

by Robert Lewis

What does it mean to be a man? Moreover, how do you as a father instill that reality in your son? ByRaising a Modern-Day Knight.

The medieval custom of knighthood offers an unique approach to shaping a boy into a strong, godly man. Centuries ago, select boys went through a rigorous, years-long process of clearly defined objectives, goals, and ceremonies―with the hope of achieving knighthood. Along the way, they acquired a boldly masculine vision, an uncompromising code of conduct, and a noble cause in which to invest their lives. They were the heroes of their age.

In much the same way, Raising a Modern-Day Knight will show how you, too, can confidently guide your son to the kind of authentic, biblical manhood that can change out world. Complete with ceremony ideas to celebrate accomplishments and ingrain them in the mind of a knight-in-training, this resource is as insightful as it is practical in raising a boy to be a chivalrous, godly man.

Jesus Calling Book


Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence

by Sarah Young

Uniquely inspired treasures from heaven for every day of the year by missionary Sarah Young.

Jesus Calling is a devotional filled with uniquely inspired treasures from heaven for every day of the year.  After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down whatever she believed He was saying to her. 

It was awkward at first, but gradually her journaling changed from monologue to dialogue.  She knew her writings were not inspired as Scripture is, but journaling helped her grow closer to God. 

Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her messages.  They are written from Jesus’ point of view, thus the title Jesus Calling.  It is Sarah’s fervent prayer that our Savior may bless readers with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure.


The Consequences Book


The Consequences of Ideas

by R.C. Sproul

Sproul’s survey of the ongoing impact of history’s most influential philosophies urges readers to take prevailing cultural mind-sets seriously… because ideas do have consequences.

The greatest thinkers of all time are impacting us still. From public-policy decisions and current laws to world events, theology, the arts, education, and even conversations between friends, history’s most influential philosophies have wrought massive consequences on nearly everything we see, think, and do.

Thus it is critical for Christians to understand the ideas that are shaping them. The greater their familiarity with the streams of thought that have saturated Western culture through the ages, the greater their ability to influence this culture for Christ.

With The Consequences of Ideas, now in paperback, R. C. Sproul expertly leads the way for thoughtful readers. Tracing the contours of Western philosophy from the ancients to the molders of modern and postmodern thought-including Plato, Aquinas, Descartes, Kant, and Freud-Sproul proves that ideas are not just passing fads; they endure for generations to come and demand our serious attention.





by Laura Hillenbrand

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER.  In boyhood, Louis Zamperini was an incorrigible delinquent. As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics.
But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943. When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft.
Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.

Getting Anger Under Control


Getting Anger Under Control

by Neil T. Anderson

Mishandling anger or just trying to “manage” it can lead to conflict, bitterness, and physical, emotional, and mental distress. Authors Neil Anderson and Rich Miller show you how God wants to set you free from anger’s deception and from self-sufficiency so you can be who He has made you to be in Christ. They explain how

  • righteous and unrighteous anger differ
  • patterns of unrighteous anger form and enslave you
  • anger’s chains are loosened when you live in grace–in Christ–and forgive others
  • you can trust God with specific areas in your life where anger has trapped you
  • you can live in God’s peace–and at peace with others–in an angry world

Getting Anger Under Control will point you to a life filled, not with anger, but with God’s love and presence.
