    Like the Roman Empire, today's governments or organizations can become centered on power and believe their messages are the "good news." As Christians, we're called to proclaim God's name in all the earth (1 Chronicles 16:8), but how do we to do that in the midst of false gospels?

    In this fifteenth volume of That The World May Know(R), discover how Paul communicated the Good News of Christ to Philippi, a Roman colony that worshipped false gods. Can you live the message as Paul did while he encouraged the church in Philippi to consider itself a colony of heaven, not Rome? Consider your citizenship--and the message you convey to the world--as Ray Vander Laan takes you deeper into the culture of ancient Philippi.

    Experience the Bible in historical context, as you walk in the footsteps of the second missionary tour of the Apostle Paul in Greece--in locations like Philippi, Thessaloniki, and Delphi.

    This pack contains one softcover discovery guide and one DVD.

    They are simple phrases. They sound Christian—like something you might find in the Bible. We’ve all heard these words. Maybe we’ve said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways.

    Join Adam Hamilton in this 5-week Bible study to search for the whole truth by comparing common Christian clichés with the wisdom found in Scripture. The clichés include: 

    Everything happens for a reason.
    God helps those who help themselves.
    God won’t give you more than you can handle.
    God said it, I believe it, that settles it.
    Love the sinner, hate the sin.

    I Give Up Study Guide with DVD: The Secret Joy of a Surrendered Life

    $43.99
    More Info

    But I don't want to surrender!

    Have you ever felt those words bubbling up so deep inside you want to shout?

    It's normal. It's natural. It's human to want to be in control.

    But when your need for peace surpasses your desire for control, God-who truly uses all things for our good-demonstrates how much we can trust him. The very act of completely surrendering our will to his can become the one act that will change your life forever.

    In this five-session video Bible study, recording artist and bestselling author Laura Story demonstrates the ironic joy found when we surrender it all to God and simply give up. Surrendering expectations and power is not a step-by-step process but a willful, daily decision worth every single ounce of effort.

    Though surrender sometimes flies in the face of our instincts, hopes, and dreams, it's never without benefit. A surrendered life includes the surprise of a truly full and satisfying existence where trust is reasonable, reconciliation is possible, and relationships can heal.

    Sessions include:

    1. What Is Surrender Anyway?
    2. God's Character Matters
    3. Giving In and Up
    4. Being Transformed
    5. The Ripple Effect of Surrender

    More and more young adults have opted out of Christianity and the church. The reason? Christians.

    When young adults talk about the problems they have with Christianity and the church, they often name certain attitudes and behaviors they believe are practiced too often by Christians: judging others, condemning people of other faiths, rejecting science, injecting politics into faith, and being anti-homosexual. With his familiar style, Adam Hamilton tackles these issues and addresses the how's and why's of Christians getting it right when it comes to being Christ in the world.
