Sharing from his own experiences growing up in the segregated South, pastor John Piper thoughtfully exposes the unremitting problem of racism. Instead of turning finally to organizations, education, famous personalities, or government programs to address racial strife, Piper reveals the definitive source of hope—teaching how the good news about Jesus Christ actively undermines the sins that feed racial strife, and leads to a many-colored and many-cultured kingdom of God.
Learn to pursue ethnic harmony from a biblical perspective, and to relate to real people different from yourself, as you take part in the bloodline of Jesus that is comprised of “every tongue, tribe, and nation.”

Servant leadership is the most effective type of leadership in today’s world. But what does it mean to be a servant leader? And how do you do it? You may not know how to practice this type of leading, but do you recognize it when you see it? Though many people are attracted to the concept of being a servant leader in their homes, workplaces and community, they don’t know where to begin. Old habits are hard to break.
In their second collaboration, Dr. David Stevens and Bert Jones use pithy and succinct proverbs to teach you how to become the servant leader you desire to be. And as you apply these principles, you will become the servant leader God designed you to be, to influence generations of servant leaders to come.

When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment provides thoughtful answers to all of these questions. Drawing on the best insights from biology, psychology, and philosophy, Ryan T. Anderson offers a balanced approach to the policy issues, a nuanced vision of human embodiment, and a sober and honest survey of the human costs of getting human nature wrong.
He reveals a grim contrast between the media’s sunny depiction and the often sad realities of gender-identity struggles. He introduces readers to people who tried to “transition” but found themselves no better off. Especially troubling is the suffering felt by adults who were encouraged to transition as children but later came to regret it.
And there is a reason that many do regret it. As Anderson shows, the most helpful therapies focus not on achieving the impossible—changing bodies to conform to thoughts and feelings—but on helping people accept and even embrace the truth about their bodies and reality. This discussion will be of particular interest to parents who fear how an ideological school counselor might try to steer their child. The best evidence shows that the vast majority of children naturally grow out of any gender-conflicted phase. But no one knows how new school policies might affect children indoctrinated to believe that they really are trapped in the “wrong” body.
Drawing on years of professional experience working with Alzheimer's patients, Dr. John Dunlop wants to transform the way we think about dementia. Rooting his vision of care in the inherent dignity that stems from the fact that all people are made in the image of God, he explains biblical principles, describes the experience of dementia, and answers common questions about the condition. With a plan for how to care for patients with compassion and respect, this book helps caregivers, family members, and anyone else affected by dementia honor God as they improve the quality of care to patients.
Transgenderism: Activists detach gender from biology. Kids down to kindergarten are being taught their body is irrelevant to their authentic self. Is this affirming--or does it demean the body?
Homosexuality: Advocates disconnect sexuality from being biologically male or female. Is this liberating--or does it denigrate who we really are?
Abortion: Supporters admit that pre-born babies are human, but deny that they are persons worthy of legal protection. Does this lead to equality for women--or does it threaten the intrinsic dignity of all humans?
Hookup Culture: On campus, in Hollywood, and in the boardroom, the sexual revolution was supposed to liberate us for recreational sex. But has it really led to schizoid sex and bodies without meaning?
In Love Thy Body, best-selling author Nancy Pearcey goes beyond politically correct talking points to offer a riveting expos? of the dehumanizing secularist ethos that shapes critical moral and socio-political issues of our day.
Formerly an agnostic, Pearcey was hailed in The Economist as"America's preeminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual." Fearlessly and with compassion, she makes the case that secularism denigrates the body and destroys the basis for human rights.
Throughout, Pearcey sets forth a holistic and humane alternative availableto all--one that offers reality-oriented solutions that embrace the dignity of the human body and provide a sustainable basis for inalienable human rights.
Now, more than ever, we need to learn to "love thy body."
Here's the story of this picture as Gary tells it himself--"The Gift has its origins in Proverbs 24:11 'If you see the innocent being dragged to death, you had better do something' (paraphrase mine). My response was, 'OK, God, but you need to show me what to do.' His response came through a mentor, who suggested that I do a painting of the hands of God holding a baby inside the womb. I obtained permission to use the baby image from Lennart Nilsson's agent. He is a fantastic photographer who has taken many, many pictures from conception through birth. They are pieces of art in themselves. The copyright granted me permission to use the image for the original painting, as well as prints." Image size is about 16" x 20". Signed and numbered.
