    In this seminal work that has spent more than thirty years in print, Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin explain the reasons behind anti-Semitism, the world’s preoccupation with the Jews and Israel, and why now more than ever the world needs to confront anti-Jewish sentiment. Why have Jews been the object of the most enduring and universal hatred in history? Why is the Jewish state the most hated country in the world today? Drawing on extensive historical research, Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin reveal how Judaism’s distinctive conceptions of God, law, and peoplehood have rendered the Jews and the Jewish state outsiders and labeled them as threatening. But as Prager and Telushkin are quick to point out, anti-Semitism is not just another ethnic or racial prejudice and is not caused, as so many people falsely believe, by Jewish economic success or the need for scapegoats. Rather, anti-Semitism today, as in the past, is a reaction to Judaism and its distinctive values. Prager and Telushkin examine in detail how anti-Semitism is a unique hatred—no other prejudice has been as universal, deep, or permanent—and how the concept of the “chosen people” spawned that hatred. They also explore the role of non-Jewish Jews, such as Karl Marx and Noam Chomsky, in provoking anti-Jewish animosity. In Why the Jews?, Prager and Telushkin identify the seven major forms of anti-Semitism—pagan, Christian, Muslim, enlightenment, leftist, Nazi, and anti-Zionist—and explain why it is impossible in today’s world to be an anti-Zionist without being an antisemite. With an eye on the larger picture, Prager and Telushkin express why anti-Semitism threatens more than just Jews and what kind of changes are necessary to achieve a world without hatred.

    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.

    When it comes to badness, there’s nothing new under the sun. In her bestselling book Bad Girls of the Bible, Liz Curtis Higgs breathed new life into ancient stories depicting eight of the most infamous women in scriptural history, from Jezebel to Delilah. Biblically sound and cutting-edge fresh, Bad Girls already has helped thousands of women experience God’s grace anew by learning more about our nefarious sisters. And there are more where they came from! With Really Bad Girls of the Bible, Liz reveals the power of God’s sovereignty in the lives of other shady ladies we know by reputation but have rarely studied in depth: Bathsheba, the bathing beauty; Jael, the tent-peg-toting warrior princess; Herodias, the horrible beheader; Tamar, the widow and not-so-timid temptress; Athaliah, the deadly daughter of Jezebel; and three other ancient women, whose names we do not know but who have much to teach us: the ashamed Adulteress, the bewitching Medium of En Dor, and the desperate Bleeding Woman. The eye-opening stories of these eight bad girls demonstrate one really life-changing concept: the sovereign power of God to rule our hearts and our lives with grace, compassion, and hope.

    Emotions are a vital part of what it means to be a human being made in the image of God and redeemed in Jesus Christ. But often our emotions confuse and mislead us. So what is the proper place for emotions in a Christian’s walk of faith? In Feelings and Faith Brian Borgman draws from his extensive biblical knowledge and his pastoral experience to help listeners understand both divine and human emotions. After laying a biblical foundation he moves on to practical application, focusing on how Christians can put to death ungodly emotional displays and also cultivate godly emotions. This biblically informed, practical volume is helpful for pastors, counselors, and serious-minded Christians who wish to develop a full-orbed faith that encompasses their emotional life.

    Growing up, Shawn Thornton’s life was anything but normal—but then, so was his mother. After waking from a coma following a car crash, Beverly Thornton’s once sweet and gentle disposition had been replaced by violent mood swings, profanity-laced tirades, and uncontrollable fits of rage. Inside the Thornton house, floors and countertops were piled high with dirty laundry and garbage because Bev was unable to move well enough to clean. Dinners were a Russian roulette of half-cooked meat, spoiled milk, and foods well past their expiration dates. A moment of frustration might prompt her to hurl a knife at Shawn, his brother, Troy, or their dad or to vehemently cuss them out, only to shower them with love and affection moments later as though nothing had happened. And God help the family cat! On several occasions, Bev even tried to jump out of the car on the highway while Shawn and his brother struggled to keep her inside. Yet this same woman was also a devoted Bible reader, Sunday school teacher, and friend to the elderly, poor, and marginalized wherever she went. How the same woman could be a saint one minute and a nightmare the next was a constant source of frustration for the family. Then one day, after decades of embarrassing outbursts, a surprise discovery finally helped the Thornton family come to grips with Bev’s mysterious condition and bring Shawn to a startling realization that changed the course of his life forever. A heartwarming coming-of-age story, All but Normal is a powerful reminder that sometimes the “broken” people in our lives are the ones who need fixing the least.

    This is a true story. It is my story. No one could have possibly created the contents of this book unless the incidents and occurrences were witnessed and lived. I did both. I lived eleven years of hell, and the perpetrators have never admitted to a single fault. To have endured these personal horrors and escaped without apparent mental impairment may well be a miracle in itself.

    Revised and expanded edition of a life-changingbBook Recovering nice guy Paul Coughlin points the way for all men who yearn to live a life of boldness and conviction—like Jesus. Using anecdotes from his own life, powerful and poignant stories, and vivid examples from our culture, Coughlin shows how men can say no to the “nice guy” syndrome and yes to a life of purpose, passion, and vitality. In this revised and expanded edition, Coughlin adds vital insights on the changes he’s seen in churches and the greater culture in the decade since No More Christian Nice Guy was first published. This radical and hopeful message elevates the true biblical model of manhood and now includes testimonials from men and women whose lives have been altered by this book. Coughlin also looks at the shifting expectations men face in relationships and in the workplace and how younger Christians, in particular, are subject to harmful views about masculinity. Part inspiration, part instruction, and part manifesto, this book gives men the courage to move from passivity to assertiveness.

    The church in the West is at a critical moment. While the gospel is exploding throughout the global south, Western civilization faces militant assaults from aggressive secularism and radical Islam. Will the church resist the seductive shaping power of advanced modernity? More than ever, Christians must resist the negative cultural forces of our day with fortitude and winsomeness. What is needed is followers of Christ who are willing to face reality without flinching and respond with a faithfulness that is unwavering. Os Guinness describes these Christians as “impossible people,” those who have “hearts that can melt with compassion, but with faces like flint and backbones of steel who are unmanipulable, unbribable, undeterrable and unclubbable, without ever losing the gentleness, the mercy, the grace and the compassion of our Lord.” Few accounts of the challenge of today are more realistic, and few calls to Christian courage are more timely, resolute, and hopeful. Guinness argues that we must engage secularism and atheism in new ways, confronting competing ideas with discernment and fresh articulation of the faith. Christians are called to be impossible people, serving an impossible God.

First published in 1966, just six years before the master’s death, Resurrection contains five powerful, practical works that describe how to use the imaging powers of your mind to remake reality. But Resurrection offers much more—the closing essay, for which the anthology is named, is one of Neville’s final and most ambitious works.

Narrated by historian Mitch Horowitz, this audio edition also includes Mitch’s new preface, which elucidates the totality of Neville’s spiritual vision in the final years of his life.
