"Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family" by Paul David Tripp

posted by Fccea Webmaster

Product DetailsIf you attended the Tripp seminar, or even if you didn't, this book will be a great help in teaching how the gospel relates to parenting, and how God's relationship to us as Father can help inform our own parenting.  It's not just about changing behavior; it's about changing hearts.  This book is excellent in helping parents see what they can and cannot do -- and how to point kids in the right direction.

"Pathway to Freedom: How God's Laws Guide Our Lives" by Alistair Begg

posted Sep 10, 2017, 3:37 PM by Fccea Webmaster

Product DetailsEver wonder how believers relate to the Law?  Or how law and grace relate?  Or what the Ten Commandments really require?  This is the best book I've ever read on the Ten Commandments.  It shows how true freedom comes from obedience -- not disobedience as we often think.

"This Is Our Time: Everyday Myths in Light of the Gospel" by Trevin Wax

posted Sep 4, 2017, 1:36 PM by Fccea Webmaster

Product DetailsWhat does a secular culture tell us?  What is the Christian counter?  What is the Gospel truth?  Covering subjects such as media, entertainment, pursuit of happiness, marriage, sex, culture and the future.  Well written with clear illustrations, creative thinking and challenging conclusions.

"None Like Him: 10 Ways God Is Different From Us" by Jen Wilkin

posted Sep 1, 2017, 10:37 AM by Fccea Webmaster

Product DetailsIn order to know God personally we need to know what the Bible teaches about Him.  This book will help you do both.  In particular, it will teach you the things about God that are different from us, why we try unsuccessfully to emulate them, and what our response really ought to be.  Challenging and devotional look at who God is and what it means to us.

"The God Conversation" by J. P. Moreland and Tim Muehlhoff

posted Aug 31, 2017, 12:19 PM by Fccea Webmaster

Product DetailsIf you have difficulty expressing your faith in a confident and clear manner (who doesn't?), then this book may help.  It is not comprehensive, but it has some very helpful ways to talk about faith in and evidence for the existence of God with various stories used to illustrate that faith.  It will also strengthen your own faith.

"The Hole in Our Holiness" by Kevin DeYoung

posted Aug 18, 2017, 3:11 PM by Fccea Webmaster

Product DetailsIt is not unusual for a book about holiness to seem boring and bringing with it an overwhelming sense of guilt.  This book does neither.  It rightly brings conviction, but it has an excellent and realistic idea of what Christian living looks like.  DeYoung is always enlightening, easy to follow and very helpful.  This book is an excellent resource to help you grow in Christ.

"Walking With God Through Pain and Suffering" by Timothy Keller

posted Aug 18, 2017, 3:03 PM by Fccea Webmaster

Product DetailsThis is the best book I've read on this subject.  Excellent if you are currently going through hard times, but even better to be prepared.  As D. A. Carson says, "If you live long enough, you will suffer."  How we suffer is of great importance both to us and to God.  This book will help you see how the Bible prepares us for this eventuality.

"The Enemy Within" by Kris Lundgaard

posted Jun 17, 2017, 7:21 AM by Kelly Griffin

Lundgaard’s life was changed by reading two Puritan classics by John Owens: Indwelling Sin in Believers and The Mortification of Sin. Knowing that few “moderns” would spend the time necessary to labor through those volumes, Lundgaard wrote a superb summary. Answers questions like what is indwelling sin? Why is it so powerful? What are its tactics? How can it be
defeated? If you’ve ever wondered why the struggle got worse after you came to faith in Christ, this will help you understand – and overcome. Easy to read and absorb, yet profound and lifechanging.

"The Masculine Mandate: God's Calling to Men" by Richard D. Phillips

posted Apr 23, 2017, 3:17 PM by Kelly Griffin

This excellent book divides into two parts: understanding our mandate and living our mandate. The first deals with defining masculinity from a biblical perspective. The second part deals with how that definition applies in various areas of life: marriage, family, children, the church and working with others. Grounded in Scripture and challenging in content, I highly recommend this book for anyone who sincerely wants to be a man of God.

"Overplayed: A Parent's Guide to Sanity in the World of Youth Sports" by David King and Margot Starbuck

posted Mar 16, 2017, 1:53 PM by Kelly Griffin   [ updated Mar 16, 2017, 1:53 PM ]

If you’ve ever wrestled with trying to bring order out of the chaos of competing priorities having to do with kids and sports, you will appreciate this balanced book. This is not an anti-sports book. One of the authors has coached at high school and college level and is currently Director of Athletics at a college. But the book does recognize the excesses of modern youth athletics and
addresses them from a biblical and common sense perspective. 

I promise you will learn a lot about yourself and about your kids. You will find many helpful suggestions and a lot of food for
thought in this guide. High school athletes will find it interesting as well. The book addresses seven myths perpetrated by a sports-crazed culture that thoughtful and conscientious parents need to consider:

1. Because we owe our children every opportunity, we can’t say No to youth sports.

2. My child deserves to play with the most-skilled players.

3. My child should specialize in one sport.

4. There’s no harm in participating in youth sports.

5. Youth sports instill our family’s values.

6. Good parents attend all their children’s games.

7. The money we are investing into youth sports will pay off.

A final section deals with how to talk to kids about sports. You may not agree with everything; but you will find much helpful information here. Highly recommended.
