  • Ex Muslims Guide To Christianity

    $15.99

    Packed with compassionate wisdom, practical action steps, and easy-to-understand explanations, this guide for ex-Muslims following Jesus and Christianity is a life-changing tool.

    If you’ve left Islam for a new life in Christ, this guide will help you thrive amidst challenges, avoid common pitfalls, learn how to respond to family, and so much more. Learn to:

    *Distinguish between God’s voice and Allah’s voice (and how to follow the Holy Spirit)
    *Switch from a works-based lifestyle to joyful salvation and freedom
    *Reap amazing benefits from Christian disciplines (prayer, worship, charity, etc.)
    *Refresh & nourish yourself using Christian disciplines (prayer, worship, charity, etc.)
    *And more!

    Who is The Ex-Muslim’s Guide to Christianity for?

    Ostracized. Alone. Disoriented. You’ve left your family, community, and everything you’ve known behind. You may have found a loving church community, but no one really understands what it’s been like. It feels like there are disconnects between what you know about faith and how your fellow Christians seem to understand God. Perhaps other churchgoers speak of a closeness with the Holy Spirit that you can’t seem to connect with. You’re not alone… and the blocks between your Muslim-based thought patterns and Christian theology are very real.

    The goal of this book is to help ex-Muslim Christians navigate their faith by recognizing and correcting common misunderstandings imported from an Islamic worldview. Kenza Haddock knows the unique challenges faced by ex-Muslims and emphasizes that relating to God as our Heavenly Father is key to understanding:

    *God’s voice vs. “Allah’s voice”
    *Prayer vs. ritual
    *Our identity in Christ
    *How to stand firm in the face of persecution
    *What the afterlife looks like for a Christian

    The Ex-Muslim’s Guide to Christianity Answers Common Questions

    The Ex-Muslim’s Guide to Christianity addresses the most common questions ex-Muslims wrestle with (and may be afraid to ask) as they begin to follow Christ:

    *How is Jesus different from Mohammed?
    *How is God’s character different from Allah’s?
    *How do I walk in step with the Holy Spirit?
    *How do I deal with relatives who constantly persecute me for my Christian faith?

    There are dozens of books for evangelism and missionary work, but The Ex-Muslim’s Guide to Christianity speaks straight to ex-Muslims with experienced understanding, deep compassion, and life-saving truths.

  • What Is Islam

    $9.99

    How to love your Muslim neighbor.

    Islam is the second–most popular and fastest–growing religion in the world. Islam and Christianity share some common commitments, but there are crucial differences. However, the greatest barrier to dialogue is that Christians and Muslims often misunderstand each other. Do you understand Islam?

    In What Is Islam?, Chawkat Moucarry compares the teachings of Islam and Christianity on the most essential issues, such as the Bible, God, Jesus, sin and forgiveness, Muhammad, and God’s kingdom. Moreover, Moucarry dispels the many myths and misconceptions that both religions hold about the other, paving the way for charitable discussion. Understand how the gospel is good news for everyone.

    The Questions for Restless Minds series applies God’s word to today’s issues. Each short book faces tough questions honestly and clearly, so you can think wisely, act with conviction, and become more like Christ.

  • Engaging With Mormons

    $14.99

    A former Mormon writes an introduction to what Mormons believe and how Christians can reach out to them with the gospel.

    Many people see Mormons as just another branch of the Christian church, and to be admired, perhaps, for their family life, morality and upright culture.

    But the theology and spirituality of this cult are very far from an orthodox biblical understanding of true saving faith. And yet Christians are often fearful of engaging in conversations about the gospel with Mormons, knowing that there are suspicions and complex issues that lie beneath the surface.

    This short book is designed to help both Christians and whole churches to understand more about the beliefs, mindset and motivations of those who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints (Mormons), and to reach out to them with the good news of the gospel.

    Written at a level that everyone can understand, this book emphasizes the importance of forming loving, honest and open relationships as part of the way we engage with our Mormon friends and neighbors, and with those who may come knocking at our doors.

  • Unveiled : The Bible, The Qur’an, And Women

    $14.99

    I am an ex-terrorist.
    I raised my hand high to volunteer to become a jihadi fighter, but then I met Jesus . . .
    and that changed everything.

    Born the unwanted third daughter, Esther Ahmad grew up Muslim in Pakistan. Her faith and country drove every aspect of her first 18 years, from what she wore and what she ate to her prospects for work and marriage, even to the manner of her death.

    Unveiled chronicles Esther’s conversion to Christianity and escape from radical Islam. Chapter by chapter, Esther lays out the lies of the Qur’an and holds them against the truths she found in the Bible. As she examines the differences between the Muslim and Christian scriptures, she reveals how she found her true identity as she journeyed from unwanted daughter to cherished child of God, from being marked by impurity to taking on the purity of Christ, and from being enslaved to rote prayer to becoming free in a true relationship with God.

    Esther’s white-knuckle journey will open your eyes to the plight of women around the world and inspire you to find the courage you need to speak the hope of Christ into the lives of those who still live behind the veil.

  • Christianity Cults And The Occult Wall Chart Laminated

    $14.99

    New Cults Comparison Wall Chart: Christianity, Cults & Occult chart

    BARNA SURVEY SHOWS INFLUENCE OF THE SUPERNATURAL ON TEENS. Nearly 75% of U.S. teens have dabbled in some form of psychic activity or witchcraft, according to a new Barna survey of more than 4,000 teens.

    Occult themes, supernatural beings, witchcraft, and spell-casting, are part of American culture – including movies (such as Underworld, The Sixth Sense, The Exorcism of Emily Rose), television programs (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Ghost Whisperer), books (Harry Potter, Goosebumps), and video games (Doom, The Darkness).

    This fold-out chart clearly contrasts Christianity and 11 movements with a wide range of occult connections:
    * Freemasonry
    * Kabbalah Centre
    * Wicca/Neopaganism
    * Satanism
    * Spiritualism
    * Santeria
    * Voodoo
    * Theosophy
    * Anthroposophy
    * Rosicrucianism
    * Eckankar

    Topics compared:
    * Origins (founders, dates, headquarters)
    * Key writings
    * Key beliefs
    * Occultic practices
    * Affiliated organizations
    * Symbols and photos
    * News and controversies

    Bonus sections:
    * Astrology and Horoscopes
    * Glossary of Occult Terms
    * Scriptural Warnings on the Occult

    Some religious groups look harmless, but the Bible says their practices can be spiritually deadly! Many people are attracted to occult groups like the Kabbalah Centre because of celebrities such as Madonna and Demi Moore. Other people don’t know what’s behind Rosicrucianism and Anthroposophy until it’s too late. Pop culture glorifies Wicca and neopaganism. Christians need clear, reliable information on these and other groups to know what’s what and who’s who.

    Many American youth (73%) have engaged in at least one type of psychic or witchcraft-related activity, beyond watching a TV show or movie, or reading their horoscope.

    The Barna Group reported on the most common types of occult behaviors:
    Using a Ouija board and reading a book about witchcraft or Wicca – 30% of teens
    Playing a game featuring sorcery or witchcraft elements – 25% of teens.
    Participated in a seance- 10% of teens
    Casting a spell or mixing a magic potion – approx 8% of teens
    Having one’s palm read (30%)
    Having their fortune told (27%).
    Visiting a medium or spiritual guide (9%).
    Consulting a psychic (9%).

    Is someone you know involved with an occultic group? This unique, up-to-date chart can give you the information you need to understand, to pray, and to offer help.
