    The managing editor of Christianity Today and founder of the popular Her.meneutics blog encourages women to find joy in vocation in this game-changing look at the importance of women and work. The conversation about women and work is heated and headline grabbing. While women today inhabit every professional sphere, many women still feel that work is something to justify, to others and to themselves. Something that is good—up to a point. In Christian circles, where the traditional family model is highly regarded, women who sense a calling to professional sectors struggle to pursue that calling without much church or peer support. Katelyn Beaty presents a new way for women—and the church—to think about work. She encourages women in all seasons and spheres to find ways to express the biblical call to rule over creation, no less in the office than in the home or ministry setting. Beaty looks at the scriptural basis for work—from the Garden of Eden to the Proverbs 31 woman and beyond—and traces the evolution of our concepts of public and domestic spheres and the rise of the single-earner family ideal. Arguing that the historical exclusion of women from spheres of influence does not reflect God’s intention for humanity, she traces how drastically women’s roles in Western society have changed in recent decades; how the work-home divide came to exist in the first place; and the biblical and theological arguments for cultural influence outside the home. She shares several stories of Christian women who are leading powerful institutions, making decisions that affect dynamic cultural change, and finding a vocation that extends beyond what was long thought to be theirs. She does not insist that all women must work outside the home; instead, she gives both men and women a better framework for discussing the role of career, desire, and calling in a Christian life. Sure to spark debate and discussion, A Woman’s Place will be a game-changing look at the importance of women and work in Christian circles.

    Speakers often use the words vision, boldness, and influence to describe the characteristics of effective leaders. Perry Noble, in The Most Excellent Way to Lead, makes the case that the heart of great leadership lies elsewhere. Perry, despite “winning” the label “least likely to succeed” in high school, beat the odds against him. Today, he inspires thousands of people every weekend to live for something greater than themselves. He credits this achievement to the leadership principles he has learned from the Bible. Surprisingly, the essence of leadership that produces genuine growth is buried in a Bible chapter often read at weddings. In this groundbreaking book, Perry walks us through that leadership chapter, describing the fifteen qualities of an inspirational leader.Whether you are an entrepreneur or a new parent, this book will encourage you to see every opportunity in life as a chance to lead in the “most excellent way.”

    The complete text of the landmark encyclical letter from Pope Francis that, as Time magazine reported, “rocked the international community” In the Encyclical on Climate Change and Inequality, the beloved Pope exhorts the world to combat environmental degradation and its impact on the poor. In a stirring, clarion call that is not merely aimed at Catholic listeners but rather at a wide, lay audience, the Pope cites the overwhelming scientific evidence of climate change, and does not hesitate to detail how it is the result of a historic level of unequal distribution of wealth. It is, in short, as the New York Times labeled it, “An urgent call to action…intended to persuade followers around the world change their behavior, in hopes of protecting a fragile planet.” With an insightful and informative introduction by Harvard professor Naomi Oreskes, famed for her bestselling Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco Smoke to Global Warming.

    The inspiring story of the prominent yet deeply modest Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the late leader who rebuilt a dwindling post-holocaust community into the most influential Jewish organization in the world From a small synagogue In Crown Heights, Brooklyn, the late Rebbe Schneerson impacted the policies of US presidents and politicians, counseled some of our greatest thinkers, and spread his teachings of love and righteousness to the far corners of the world. An ambassador for Jews globally, his role was unprecedented within a fragmented religion, comprised of diverse, often divided sects. Many Jews—especially those involved in Chabad—believed that the Rebbe was the messiah while he was still alive. Drawn from the Rebbe’s private correspondence, Rebbe is a rich and illuminating portrait of this remarkable man who was a devoted spiritual leader and tireless counselor, controversial advocate for women’s rights and community openness, and an accomplished scholar fluent in dozens of languages. Joseph Telushkin illuminates the Rebbe’s rich private life and chronicles his achievements, from his close bond with his congregants to his influence on presidents, including Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. Throughout, Telushkin pays tribute to the Rebbe’s legacy—his teachings of love, education, and respect—which have become engrained in millions of Jews and non-Jews alike.

    The Christian radio talk show host asked the well-known women’s ministry leader the question, “So what do you think about the statement that men in the church have been feminized?” Her immediate response was, “I totally disagree. Men in America have not been feminized at all…they have been emasculated. Men don’t feel a need to be more like women…they just have lost their identity as men.” This book begins with the true story told by a washed up minister whom God forgave, healed, restored, and reenlisted in his service. The real story lies, however, with a few men who, discontented with the detachment of men in their church and inspired by the Holy Spirit, discovered a pathway to reengagement as God’s man in this hour … or maybe real engagement for the very first time. Welcome to Warrior Boot Camp! With this audiobook, listeners will take a journey through a season of breaking down and shredding of the things of this world that have insidiously crept like tendrils into our hearts and minds. They will then explore the practical military view, including strategies and tactics, that is pervasive throughout scripture, regarding our calling to engage and win the spiritual war against our three foes: the world system, the carnal human nature, and the demonic spiritual realm led by Satan. The second half of the book builds listeners up with the understanding of how to dress for success in the Kingdom by “putting on” and effectively fighting in God’s armor (Ephesians 6). Warriors must be expert in weaponry and the invisible war of the Spirit is not the exception but the rule. The real hero of this warrior saga is Gideon. Listeners will get into his shoes as he hides in the wine press … and then into his head and, finally, his heart as he is transformed from fearful farmer to mighty warrior. Together we will explore the common threads of manhood as lived out by the greatest warrior in Israel’s history. In these pages the truths of walking in the sustainable freedom all men yearn for are unlocked. Join Gideon as he becomes the man God dreamed when He made him … and receive, with him, God’s new name for you: Mighty Warrior!

    A practical guide to changing the world with gospel action, from the CEO of a leading evangelical nonprofit Global social justice issues are motivating a new generation of evangelicals, most of whom grew up with a simple “Jesus is the answer” worldview. What’s often missing for these new activists is a clear understanding of how individual and social transformation happens, and how a culture of “haves” can bring good to a culture of “have nots” without inadvertently also bringing harm. Bauman’s book is a stirring yet pragmatic treatise on how individuals and churches can be catalysts for radical, positive, and lasting change. He sees ours as a crucial moment in history—when Christians could, with a wiser and more creative approach to faith and action, go on to effect unprecedented good around the world. Drawing on a wealth of experience on the front lines of Christian ministry as well as international relief and human rights, he shows his readers the breathtaking yet entirely possible scope of their calling.

    A revealing inside look at one of the world’s most powerful and mysterious institutions For more than twenty-five years John Thavis held one of the most fascinating journalistic jobs in the world: reporting on the inner workings of the Vatican. His daily exposure to the power, politics, and personalities in the seat of Roman Catholicism gave him a unique, behind-the-scenes perspective on an institution that is far less monolithic and unified than it first appears. Thavis reveals Vatican City as a place where Curia cardinals fight private wars, scandals threaten to undermine papal authority, and reverence for the past is continually upended by the practical considerations of modern life. Thavis takes listeners from a bell tower high above St. Peter’s to the depths of the basilica and the saint’s burial place, from the politicking surrounding the election of a new pope and the ever-growing sexual abuse scandals around the world to controversies about the Vatican’s stand on contraception and more. Perceptive, sharply written, and witty, The Vatican Diaries will appeal not only to Catholics—lapsed as well as devout—but to anyone interested in international diplomacy and the role of religion in an increasingly secularized world.

    In 2011, Butler University made history as the first team to make it to two consecutive finals of the NCAA basketball tournament without being seeded #1 or #2. As the smallest school to play in the championship game in the 40-year history of the tournament, Butler became the quintessential “Cinderella” team. How did this little-known Midwest university achieve what few schools have ever done by making it to the final championship game two years in a row? Much of the attention is focused on head coach and team leader Brad Stevens, who was only 33 years old at the time of the 2010 tournament. Often mistaken for one of the players, Stevens coaches according to a set of six values-based principles broadly known as the Butler Way—humility, passion, unity, service, thankfulness, and accountability. Through interviews with coaches, players, and alumni, M. Kent Millard explores the six leadership values taught by the entire coaching staff at Butler University. Each chapter of the book helps listeners discover how these values form a solid foundation for pastors and other church leaders and anyone striving for success in life’s journey.

    Although he’s one of the most successful high school basketball coaches in Kentucky’s history, Steve Rocker, for the first time in his life, is falling short of expectations. His players have lost their will to win, their love for their teammates, and their passion to play. Coach Rocker’s motivational methods that have always worked before, and have resulted in his success, are now failing, and he doesn’t know why. Struggling to understand what’s happening, Coach seeks the counsel of one of his most successful friends, CEO Grant Steffin, who, while fighting his own battles, offers advice based on his own leadership experiences. Coach Rocker also stumbles upon some unexpected insight from, of all people, the high school janitor. As Coach’s season spirals downward, and as he continues to interact with these two intriguing men, the why questions become louder and louder in his head. Why does he do what he does? Or for that matter, why does he even exist? These questions eventually push him to go deeper into his own heart than he ever imagined possible to determine his purpose not only in leadership but also in life.

    Lead small groups through astounding growth with principles from the authors of the bestselling books How People Grow and Boundaries No matter what need brings a group of people together—from marriage enrichment to divorce recovery, from grief recovery to spiritual formation—members are part of a small group because they want to grow. This book by psychologists Henry Cloud and John Townsend provides small-group leaders with valuable guidance and information on how they can help their groups to grow spiritually, emotionally, and relationally. With insights from their bestselling book How People Grow, Cloud and Townsend show how God’s plan for growth is made up of three key elements: grace plus truth plus time. When groups embrace those elements, they find God’s grace and forgiveness and learn how to handle their imperfections without shame as they model God’s love and support to one another. In addition to describing what makes small groups work, Making Small Groups Work explains the roles and responsibilities of both leaders and group members. This book equips leaders to understand the ins and outs of how to promote growth, and using principles from their bestselling book Boundaries, they show how to identify and find solutions for common problems such as boredom, noncompliance, passivity, aggression, narcissism, spiritualization, over-neediness, over-giving, and nonstop talking.
