  • When Wrong Seems Right

    $12.99

    Helping kids fall in love with God and His Word as they study the Bible for themselves.

    Is that right? A heart guide for discerning wrong from right.

    Our kids are growing up in a confusing world with an abundance of messages that are contrary to God’s word. This Bible study takes your kids through forty Proverbs, providing wisdom for right thinking and living. Proverbs is a great place to start for kids who are studying the Bible on their own for the first time or who are trying to find a rhythm for regular Bible study. With straightforward easy-to-understand lessons, your kids will learn how to study their Bibles and how to apply it. They will discover what it looks like to follow Christ in a world that doesn’t. As your kids study the Proverbs, they will find that even when they make wrong choices, God is kind to forgive and set them on the right path. And, most importantly, they will receive the necessary help to follow the fount of all wisdom: Jesus.

    When Wrong Seems Right emboldens your kids in God’s truth so they can grow into a courageous generation of wise young men and women!

  • Faith Beyond Youth Group

    $24.99

    Most typical youth ministries today produce nice, obedient kids who behave themselves–and then leave the church and the faith. Even those who remain struggle to extend their own faith beyond youth group. They seem like “good kids,” but their lives and decisions outside youth group aren’t oriented towards Jesus. Clearly that is not our goal. So what are we doing wrong? And how can we better serve the unique needs of the most anxious, adaptive, and diverse generation in history?

    If you’re tired of youth ministry that fails to change lives, it’s time to change youth ministry. Building on two decades of the Fuller Youth Institute’s work and incorporating extensive new research and interviews, Faith Beyond Youth Group identifies the reasons youth ministry often fails both short-term and long-term, and offers five ways adult youth leaders can cultivate character for a lifetime of growing closer to Jesus rather than drifting away. It shows leaders how to cultivate trust, model growth, teach for transformation, practice together, and make meaning so that the teenagers can become adults who hold fast to the truth 24/7 and boldly live out a robust faith in a watching world.

  • Next Gen Faith

    $18.99

    When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth? (Luke 18:8)

    Jesus’s question is one that should bother all Christians. Increasing numbers of people don’t go to church. Only 4 percent of those born between 1998 and 2013 have a biblical worldview. The rest don’t believe in the Bible, absolute moral truth, or a loving, all-powerful Creator. They don’t even believe in the concept of sin.

    We have failed. We have not taken to heart the biblical admonishment to pass on our faith from one generation to the next.

    Yet youth pastor Jeff Grenell believes that once American teens and young adults discover that God is even more amazing than Stranger Things, “they will be hooked.”

    He notes, “Our world is familiar with the supernatural, but the church is foreign to it. If this changes in the church today, we may have one of the best apologetic tools to reach this generation because the supernatural is in the DNA of the church and its message. Most American teenagers and youth culture are drawn to the spectacular and the spiritual.”

    Jeff has written Next Gen Faith: 12 Spiritual Practices for Youth in an effort to reverse the godless trend among the next generations. Written in the vein of the classic Christian book The Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster, Next Gen Faith is designed to provide key steps for spiritual formation for both Christian adults who work with youth as well as teens and young adults themselves.

  • Everyday Theology Teen Girls Bible Study Book (Student/Study Guide)

    $15.99

    Theology is the study of God, what He has done, is doing, and will do in the world. And it’s not just for those with formal education or those who work at your church. It’s for you in your everyday moments, questions, and decisions. It’s for the big and little, the exciting and mundane. Our theology is the basis of our faith and touches every part of our existence.

    In this 8-session study, teen girls will explore the essential doctrines of Scripture, God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, humanity, salvation, the church, and the end times to know God more deeply through these foundational truths.

  • Stories Jesus Told Teen Bible Study Book

    $15.99

    If you’re human, you love a good story. Whether it’s a novel, a film, or a song, we are products of the narratives that have formed us. We’re made up of stories we’d like to forget, as well. If you’re looking for fresh inspiration, or stuck living under the weight of a story you can’t shake off, the Parables of Jesus can form who we are and reveal more about God than we ever thought possible – and they’ll provide the hope we’re all looking for, speaking above all the other noise we are experiencing.

  • Life Questions Every Student Asks

    $22.00

    Every student asks questions about life beyond the classroom:
    *What does it mean to be in community?
    *How can I discern my vocation?
    *How should I understand marriage and sex?
    *How should I relate to money and power?
    *What happens if I doubt my faith?
    *How should I approach interfaith dialogue?

    To help students navigate these questions about some of life’s most pressing and difficult issues, Gary M. Burge and David Lauber, coeditors of Theology Questions Everyone Asks, have gathered insights from Christian faculty who draw on their own experiences in conversation with students during office hours and over coffee. Sometimes, the deepest learning takes place outside the classroom.

  • End Of Youth Ministry

    $22.99

    What is youth ministry actually for? And does it have a future? Andrew Root, a leading scholar in youth ministry and practical theology, went on a one-year journey to answer these questions. In this book, Root weaves together an innovative first-person fictional narrative to diagnose the challenges facing the church today and to offer a new vision for youth ministry in the 21st century.

    Informed by interviews that Root conducted with parents, this book explores how parents’ perspectives of what constitutes a good life are affecting youth ministry. In today’s culture, youth ministry can’t compete with sports, test prep, and the myriad other activities in which young people participate. Through a unique parable-style story, Root offers a new way to think about the purpose of youth ministry: not happiness, but joy. Joy is a sense of experiencing the good. For youth ministry to be about joy, it must move beyond the youth group model and rework the assumptions of how identity and happiness are imagined by parents in American society.

  • Walk Youth Study Book (Student/Study Guide)

    $14.99

    How do we walk with Christ–daily follow him, grow in him, and faithfully serve him? In the Gospels, Jesus modeled for us the Christian spiritual life. The apostles taught it in their writings. And the Church has, through the last 2,000 years, sought to pursue this Christian spiritual life.

    In The Walk, Adam Hamilton focuses on five essential spiritual practices that are rooted in Jesus’ own walk with God and taught throughout the New Testament. Each of these practices is intended as part of our daily walk with Christ while also being an essential part of growing together in the church.

    In each chapter, Hamilton explores one of these practices, its New Testament foundation, and what it looks like to pursue this practice daily in our personal life and together in the life of the church. Deepen your walk with Christ as we explore the five essential practices of worship, study, serving, giving, and bearing witness to our faith.

    This Youth Study Book takes the ideas presented in Adam Hamilton’s book and interprets them for young people grades 6-12.
