A Matter of Days: Resolving a Creation Controversy

by Hugh Ross, Kathy Ross, Joe Aguirre
Book Image: A Matter of Days: Resolving a Creation Controversy

How long were the creation days of Genesis hours or epochs? Does belief in an old earth equate to belief in evolution? Was there any kind of death before the Fall? The length of the creation days in Genesis sparks a storm of controversy. At the core of the debate, where lighting strikes and thunder roars, lie key questions whose answers promise hope for resolution. In A Matter of Days, author and astronomer Hugh Ross addresses these questions and explores how the creation-day controversy developed. History, theology, science, and Scripture reveal creation's big picture. About the updated edition: In the 10 years since A Matter of Days first publication, the scientific and theological case for a Creator has grown exponentially. This expanded second edition, with over 50 pages of new content, extends beyond simply addressing creation-day challenges. Hugh Ross demonstrates how sound, gracious apologetics can remove obstacles to faith in Christ and help bring reconciliation in the church. This book is designed to turn arguments into conversations and to equip believers to defend their faith with gentleness and respect.

As It Was In The Days Of Noah: Warnings from Bible Prophecy About the Coming Global Storm

by Jeff Kinley
Book Image: As It Was In The Days Of Noah: Warnings from Bible Prophecy About the Coming Global Storm

The story of Noah is one of the most captivating in all the Bible. Yet most people remember it mainly as a children’s story found in picture books and heard in Sunday school classes.

But this tragedy really took place―and widely overlooked is Jesus’ stunning prophecy that the final days of planet Earth would be just as it was in the days of Noah. His point? That there would be striking parallels between Noah’s day and the end times―with warnings of God’s imminent judgment upon the world.

Is Jesus’ prophecy now being fulfilled? And if yes, how then should we respond?

As It Was in the Days of Noah explores the similarities between the two periods, such as the rapid rise in evil and increasingly flagrant disregard for God. A powerful resource that…

  • examines the signs that we’re nearing the end times
  • affirms the urgency of reaching the lost with God’s compassion and truth
  • equips you to live wisely and “redeem the time” so it counts for eternity

I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist

by Norman L. Geisler, Frank Turek, David Limbaugh
Book Image: I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist

To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable. 

Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.

Is This the End?: Signs of God's Providence in a Disturbing New World

by Dr. David Jeremiah
Book Image: Is This the End?: Signs of God's Providence in a Disturbing New World

The world seems more fractured each day. People are asking, "Is this the End?"

Never have the headlines been this jarring, the cultural changes this rapid, or the moral decay this pronounced. What on earth is happening? After each new occurrence, the most oft-heard questions are, “Will the world ever be the same again?” and “Where is God in all of this?”

Over the last few decades, Dr. David Jeremiah has become one of the world’s most sought-after Christian leaders on topics that deal with biblical application and modern culture. And few would dispute that the pace at which things are currently changing is unprecedented. The time has come to accept this new normal, Jeremiah says, and understand how God’s hand is still at work on His eternal plan for mankind.

No one can afford to ignore these warnings, but all can better understand the greater story and the role we each play in this changing world. From prophetic clues in Scripture to an understanding of the power of Christ in all believers, this book directs us on a clear path forward.

The book is split into two sections, each covering items surrounding two important questions. Is This the End of America? and Is This the End of the World? Includes detailed chapters on:

  • Terrorism
  • ISIS and Radicalized Islam
  • The New Russia
  • The Bleeding of America's Borders
  • The "Anything Goes" Society
  • Polarization and Divisiveness
  • The Coming of Christ
  • and many more

Not All Roads Lead to Heaven: Sharing an Exclusive Jesus in an Inclusive World

by Dr. Robert Jeffress
Book Image: Not All Roads Lead to Heaven: Sharing an Exclusive Jesus in an Inclusive World

Almost 60 percent of those in American evangelical churches believe that many religions can lead to eternal life. But if Jesus is to be trusted when he says that no one comes to the Father except through him, the church is failing in its mission. And it's not hard to guess why. An exclusive Jesus just isn't popular in our inclusive world.

Dr. Robert Jeffress calls on Christians to recover the exclusive claims of the one they claim as Lord and Savior, not as a way to keep people out of heaven but as the only way to invite them in. He tackles questions like 

- Can people be saved who have never heard of Christ?

- What about those who worship God by another name?
- Do children automatically go to Heaven when they die? 

True compassion for non-Christians doesn't lie in letting them go their way while we go ours, but in sharing the only true way with them.

As you read this, you probably think you’re standing (or sitting) perfectly still. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. Right now, Earth is spinning on its axis in an easterly direction at 1,044 miles per hour. You’re also moving through space at 67,000 miles per hour — the speed at which Earth orbits the sun — and that’s just the beginning. As Copernicus and Galileo found in overturning centuries of entrenched thought, things aren’t always what they seem. You’re invited to embark on a journey that will challenge your thinking and point up possibilities you haven’t considered, looking at mysteries that have captivated mankind for centuries. Above all, we’ll look at evidence. Evidence that God not only exists but is knowable. Here are just some of the questions that Pat Boone and Cord Cooper address in this candid, clear-cut book: Can science and faith intersect? Is the universe valid evidence of God’s existence? If God exists, why is there tragedy in the world? Does the Bible offer evidence of divine inspiration? The flipside: What motivates atheists? Were humans created to commune with God? Do any non-biblical documents corroborate the Gospels? Was Jesus the Son of God? Did the Resurrection occur? ABOUT THE AUTHORS: For five decades, PAT BOONE has been a noted figure in the entertainment business. As a recording artist in both the popular and gospel music genres, he has sold more than 45 million units worldwide, sharing a positive message of faith and hope.

by Frank Turek, Ravi Zacharias
Book Image: Stealing from God: Why Atheists Need God to Make Their Case

If you think atheists have reason, evidence, and science on their side, think again! Award-winning author Dr. Frank Turek (I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist) will show you how atheists steal reason, evidence, science, and other arguments from God in trying to make their case for atheism. If that sounds contradictory, it’s because it is! Atheists can’t make their case without appealing to realities only theism can explain. In an engaging and memorable way, Stealing from God exposes these intellectual crimes atheists are committing and then provides four powerful reasons for why Christianity is true.

Wake the Bride: Facing These Last Days with Your Eyes Wide Open

by Jeff Kinley
Book Image: Wake the Bride: Facing These Last Days with Your Eyes Wide Open

Jeff Kinley wrote this innovative guide to the book of Revelation for the same reason the apostle John wrote the original—to arouse a sleeping church to prepare for Christ's return. Jesus said, "Wake up and strengthen the things that remain."

The apostle Paul shared the same concern. "Wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed."

Many people are unaware of the signs of the times. Many others seem consumed by end-times hype. Kinley shows that our primary concern should not be the timing of Christ's return but rather the spirit and character He desires in His bride.

You'll find enlightening descriptions of Jesus and His coming, the church and its mission, heaven and judgment, Satan and the antichrist, and other themes of Revelation. Bolster your confidence and conviction with this up-to-date presentation of Christ's clear message to the church.

Why the Universe Is the Way It Is

by Hugh Ross
Book Image: Why the Universe Is the Way It Is

Increasingly astronomers recognize that if the cosmos had not unfolded exactly as it did, humanity would not, could not, exist. Yet these researchers--along with countless ordinary folks--resist belief in the biblical Creator. Why? They say a loving God would have made a better home for us, one without trouble and tragedy. In Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, Hugh Ross draws from his depth of study in both science and Scripture to explain how the universe's design fulfills several distinct purposes. He also reveals God's surpassing love and ultimate purposes for each individual. 
Why the Universe Is the Way It Is will interest anyone who wonders where and how the universe came to be, what or who is responsible for it, why we are here, or how and when the universe ends. Far from leaving the reader at this philosophical jumping-off point, Ross builds toward answering the big question of human destiny and the specific question of each reader's personal destiny.
