  • Drink Called Joy

    $11.99

    Using the language and stories of former drug addicts and alcoholics transformed by Jesus Christ, Don Wilkerson makes a contrast between the drinking “high” of drugs and the experience with the Most High God.

    Don Writes, “Using Apostle Paul’s admonition to not be drunk with wine wherein is “excess” but be “filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18) I make a similar contrast between joy in the Lord and the false euphoria of the life of the addict on drugs. There is also possible scientific evidence that if the brain waves of someone on cocaine were compared with someone joyful in the Lord the latter would show a “peace that passes all understanding.”

    Wilkerson shares 12 chapters based on the real-life experiences of addicts finding supernatural answers to their addiction; these stories are sometimes humorous but nevertheless real. It is hopeful you will finding the reading of this book a joyful experience. There is an important message in this book for those needing freedom from addiction as well an encouragement for those in recovery. Read this then share with some else and spread joy where needed.

  • Hope In Addiction

    $16.99

    London’s suburbs. Latin America’s megacities. West Africa’s villages. China’s skyscrapers. North America’s homes. Addiction is a worldwide epidemic. This book is about the very communities in which we work, rest, and play.

    Dr. Andy Partington provides a powerful look at the gospel for the addicted and helps us think about what it means to be the Church in light of this growing–and heartbreaking–epidemic. Hope in Addiction is not just about substance abuse, but about gambling addictions, porn dependencies, workaholism, gaming and internet addictions.

    Not only does Partington help us understand addiction and recovery, he also provides practical steps for addiction care born out of his travels, research, and up-front global ministry. The church and our communities are full of people at risk of addiction, in active addiction itself, and in recovery from addiction. This is a book about how slaves to addiction become children of the living God and family in the community of God. Wherever they are. Whatever has enslaved them.

    Dr. Andy Partington bridges theology, addiction theory, personal stories, and front-line ministry in this book for Christian leaders, influencers, counselors, educators, and family members.

  • Mending The Soul Second Edition

    $29.99

    This book provides a well-researched biblical and scientific overview of abuse. A broad overview, it deals with the various types of abuse, the various effects of abuse, and the means of healing. Abuse can be sexual, physical, neglect, spiritual, and verbal. The chief arguments pursued throughout the book are:

    (1) abuse is far more rampant than most Christians realize, but due to human depravity and satanic influence, widespread abuse is predicable.

    (2) All types of abuse create profound, long-term soul damage due to the way abuse perverts various aspects of the image of God.

    (3) God is the healing redeemer. Human salvation came through horrible physical abuse.

    (4) Healing must take place in the context of relationships.

    Humans are deeply impacted by others due to being made in the image of God. Just as surely as abusive relationships have tremendous power to wound the soul, so healthy relationships have tremendous power to nurture and heal the soul. Questions answered in the book include:

    *How can a genuine believer abuse a child?
    *Why would someone abuse a child?
    *How can parents and children’s workers identify abusers?
    *How can abuse victims heal?
    *What does genuine healing look like?
    *Is anger appropriate or hurtful for abuse victims?
    *Where does forgiveness fit in?

    This second edition has been updated to reflect research conducted and published in the past 15 years on abuse and trauma. It accounts for the significant social changes and increased mental health struggles in our culture, including dramatic escalation in rates of depression, anxiety, suicide, and isolation, which exacerbate the effects of abuse and complicate the healing process. Based on their now-extensive trauma care experience, this new edition helps readers how to minister to new domestic and global victims such as sex trafficking survivors, foster children, refugees, and survivors of genocide. Examples and illustrations are updated with more recent ones from high-profile abuse cases and the aftermath of the #MeToo movement. The appendixes include lists of helpful resources for child protection policies, worker/parent child abuse education, warning signs of potential abusers, and general abuse resources (books, internet sites, and organizations) to equip ministry leaders are provided in appendices. Illustrations, case studies, and art therapy drawings.

  • Mental Health And Your Church

    $16.99

    Many people are struggling with mental-health conditions, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and life in our image-conscious culture. Statistics tell us that, worldwide, one in six of us will have experienced a mental-health struggle in the past week, and serious depression is the second-leading cause of disability (Mental Health Foundation).

    That means there are brothers and sisters in our church families battling with thoughts, feelings, impulses and even voices that distract, drag down and nudge them towards despair. But when it comes to helping, it can be tricky to know where to begin, especially if we have very little knowledge of mental illnesses and are afraid of making things worse by saying and doing the wrong things.

    This wise, compassionate and practical book is written by Steve Midgley, psychiatrist and Executive Director of Biblical Counselling UK, and Helen Thorne, Director of Training and Resources at Biblical Counselling UK. It will help readers understand and respond with biblical wisdom to people who are struggling with their mental health.

    While acknowledging the importance of liaising responsibly with medics and counsellors, this book focuses on equipping readers to play their part in making churches places where those who struggle with mental-health conditions are welcomed, understood, nurtured and supported: a foretaste of the new creation.

    This is a useful book for anyone who cares for others pastorally: pastors, elders, small-group leaders and congregation members.

  • Uncovery : Understanding The Power Of Community To Heal Trauma

    $16.99

    When it comes to Christ-centered recovery, we, the church, have work to do.

    Our legalistic, box-checking, one-size-fits-all programs produce astonishingly high failure rates–which means far too many people are left to fight addiction, mental health problems, and suicidal thoughts on their own.

    This begs some critical questions of the church:

    – Do we really believe transformational recovery and healing is possible?
    – Do we really have the right systems and structures to support struggling people?
    – Do we really carry a kingdom responsibility to restore people gently?
    – Do we really take time to ask God what more He would have us do in the recovery space?

    This book is for anyone who can’t offer a resounding yes and amen to each of those questions.

    With hearts that beat for those struggling with addictions and mental health issues, authors George A. Wood and Brit Eaton present:

    – A critical reframing of the word “recovery” and an invitation to answer God’s call for more spirit-led, trauma-informed ministry

    – Deeper exploration into the origins of addiction, mental health problems, and suicidal thoughts–and the church’s responsibility to bring God’s healing

    – Powerful supernatural testimonies and stories of hope, healing, and life restoration as a result of embracing The Uncovery

    – Practical strategies to help Christ-centered recovery leaders bridge the gap between spiritual and scientific communities to better serve struggling people

    – A loose and helpful framework for embracing The Uncovery message

    – Inspiration for recovery leaders to love and lead in a more inclusive, sacrificial, and Christlike manner while maintaining healthy self-care

    The goal of The Uncovery is to help the church–and the world–see recovery through a grace- laced, gospel lens. Some say recovery is the civil rights movement of our generation because believe it or not, recovery is for everyone. And if that statement bothers you? Recovery might be for you, too.

    Every single one of us has some trauma or issue from our past that may still be affecting our life today. This book offers readers a not-so-subtle nudge to go deeper in the recovery space for a transformative encounter with Father God to heal from those wounds and lead the promised land life He has planned for us.

  • Keeping The Cross Central (Revised)

    $15.99

    Teen Challenge, also known as Adult and Teen Challenge, was founded as an evangelistic outreach to drug addicts in Brooklyn, New York City. As a holistic Christian ministry with the life-changing message of the gospel, this faith-based rehabilitation program was created with the vision that God can redeem the whole person, starting on day one of the program. This unique approach has produced success rates of over 70% for those who complete the rehabilitation program. However, as Teen Challenge has grown worldwide, with over 1,400+ centers in 129 countries, some centers are now turning to secular methods in order to access government funding. As co-founder of Teen Challenge, Don Wilkerson raises a warning flag on this mission drift: the power of the Cross, which brings about a changed life, must be the priority in treating drug addiction; if the Cross is not central to the mission of any Teen Challenge center, then it is not worthy of using the name “Teen Challenge.” The ministry must never lose its vision and focus in bringing men and women to Christ-through the gospel and discipleship-and stay faithful to the original mission which the founders stood upon.

  • Unwanted : How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way To Healing

    $17.99

    Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing is a ground-breaking resource that explores the “why” behind self-destructive sexual choices. The book is based on research from over 3,800 men and women seeking freedom from unwanted sexual behavior, be that the use of pornography, an affair, or buying sex.

    Jay Stringer’s (M.Div, MA, LMHC) original research found that unwanted sexual behavior can be both shaped by and predicted based on the parts of our story–past and present–that remain unaddressed. When we pay attention to our unwanted sexual desires and identify the unique reasons that trigger them, the path of healing is revealed.

    Although many of us feel ashamed and unwanted after years of sexual brokenness, the book invites the reader to see that behavior as the very location God can most powerfully work in their lives. Counselors, pastors, and accountability partners of those who experience sexual shame will also find in this book the deep spiritual and psychological guidance they need to effectively minister to the sexually broken around them.

  • Breaking Toxic Soul Ties

    $15.99

    Going through this world in relationship with other people inevitably creates connections in our inner being called soul ties. When these relationships are loving, supportive, and nurturing, positive soul ties are created. But if the relationships become abusive or manipulative, or cause rejection, they can create a toxic brokenness within the soul that we carry with us, even long after the relationship ends. If these toxic inner soul ties are not broken, we will experience failure, fractured relationships, and even health problems throughout life.

    In Breaking Toxic Soul Ties, Tom Brown describes his own story of rejection and the process of inner healing he experienced. He helps you to identify and diagnose toxic relationships as he breaks down the difference between positive and negative soul ties. He also shows why toxic soul ties develop and how they can only be broken by a process of inner healing through confession, forgiveness, and prayer. The truth is, unless your self-image is firmly rooted in the truth of your identity in Christ, you will always be susceptible to bad soul ties. Tom Brown describes the way for you to move forward in life and leave pain and brokenness behind for good!

    Additional Info
    Codependency is a hot topic these days; dozens of new books about it appear each month. Trouble is, many of them deal only with escaping damaging codependent relationships—not with healing and rebuilding them. Groom (author of Married Without Masks) takes a more biblical approach. In uncomplicated language, she helps you see how codependency is actually bondage to sin and how the Gospel can restore you to healthy biblical bonding with God and others.
