New Books in September

A taste of the books we’re honored to be publishing this month:   

The Fruitful Wife by Hayley DiMarco

Hayley explores the biblical significance of all 9 fruits of the Spirit, explaining how each fruit first begins to grow and then impacts your day-to-day life and marriage. She writes like a wise friend and is readily transparent about her own failures to be spiritually fruitful as well as her relational struggles for control, authority, and respect. Ultimately, Hayley teaches us how even the rockiest of marriages can blossom and generate the fruit God intends to produce.


Mistakes Leaders Make
by Dave Kraft

“Far too often among those with strong theological conviction the idea of ‘leadership’ is filed under the banner of pragmatism and discarded instead of studied. I am grateful for men like Dave Kraft who hold strong biblical beliefs and still are deeply tapped into the leadership principles that are both biblical and essential for those who have been called to lead and shepherd the people of God as undershepherds. You can make these mistakes yourself or you can learn from those who have made the mistakes and avoid spilling your own blood.”

–Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church; President, Acts 29; author, The Explicit Gospel

Everyday Church by Tim Chester and Steve Timmis

“Another book by Chester and Timmis that is full of biblical insight and much practical wisdom for daily, street-level ministry in our Western culture today.”

–Timothy Keller, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

The Shepherd Leader at Home by Timothy Witmer

“With marriage and the family under present-day pressures, it takes a wise man to think and write well about being a husband and father under God. This book reveals Dr. Witmer as just such a wise man, and makes his wisdom available to us all. Highly recommended.”

–J. I. Packer, Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology, Regent College; author, Knowing God

Gospel Deeps by Jared Wilson

“Jared Wilson’s Gospel Deeps is not just another book on the Christian life, it is a book on what gives the Christian life—the gospel. And it isn’t a mere summary of the gospel, but a plunge deep into the good news to help the reader understand the gospel’s centrality and power in our lives. Gospel Deeps helps us behold and experience the glory and goodness of Jesus Christ in ways we often forget, or may be completely unfamiliar with.”

–Joe Thorn, author, Note to Self: The Discipline of Preaching to Yourself; Lead Pastor, Redeemer Fellowship, St. Charles, Illinois


Wondrous Works of God by Starr Meade

As the sequel to Mighty Acts of God, this volume tells 90 more stories from the Bible, beginning with the account of God creating Eve and ending with the epic visions in Revelations. Each story highlights an aspect of God’s character and includes a helpful discussion guide to help the whole family see and understand the wondrous works of God!

Philosophy by David Naugle

“A very readable, theologically sensitive treatment of crucial philosophical issues of central concern to the Christian faith. Dr. Naugle has done a first-rate job of covering a wide range of issues in a responsible way, while keeping the level of discourse at a truly introductory level. This book fills a needed gap in the literature, and I am delighted to endorse it.”

–J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University; author, Love Your God with All Your Mind

The Creedal Imperative by Carl Trueman

“I know of few people better equipped to write this book. As both a scholar and a pastor, Trueman combines his expertise as a historian with some important biblical observations to make a convincing case for The Creedal Imperative. This book will prove to be immensely useful in today’s ecclesiastical climate.”

–Mark Jones, Senior Minister, Faith Vancouver Presbyterian Church; coauthor, A Puritan Theology

Finish the Mission edited by John Piper and David Mathis

Finish the Mission issues a clarion reminder of God’s enduring passion to glorify himself by blessing all nations on earth. The gospel and mission are inseparable. A clear understanding of the mission of the church is absolutely essential in today’s fast-changing global environment.”

–Steve Richardson, President, Pioneers-USA

  1. The Low Carb Diet Made Easy.

    by John Chatham

    I came across this book in the supermarket about five years ago and read it, thought it sounded pretty good then didn’t have the willpower to avoid the processed junk in the supermarket. Then, a few years later had gestational diabetes and this book became my bible. It actually explains how the body works in terms of blood sugar and fat absorption. It also tells you exactly how to overcome cravings. I am getting back to it again since I dropped the ball and I know that the weight will come off because that’s how your body works. if you are in a complete mystery about how bodies get fat, this explains it all to you so you can be in control.
