From Birth to Resurrection in the Gospel of Luke Jesus came to lift up the lowly. Throughout his ministry to his final days on the road to the cross, we find stories of his relationships with ordinary, flawed, and unexpected people. He met, dined, and traveled with people who were not perfect. Many of them were struggling, some were outsiders or even outlaws. Whoever they were, from those he healed to the outlaws with him at his crucifixion, Jesus brought the good news of God's kingdom to those who most needed to hear it. In Luke: Jesus and the Outsiders, Outcasts, and Outlaws, pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton explores the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus as told in the Gospel of Luke. Through Luke's stories we find Jesus' care and compassion for all as he welcomes sinners and outcasts. As we study Luke and see Jesus' concern for those who were considered unimportant, we hear a hopeful and inspiring word for our lives today. The six-session DVD features video teaching sessions featuring Adam Hamilton. The video sessions are approximately 10-12 minutes in length and, when combined with the six book chapters, make an ideal six-week group study on the Gospel of Luke. All videos sessions are closed captioned. Additional study components include a comprehensive leader guide, free downloadable resources for children and youth, and a digital worship and sermon helps.

Many church leaders and other people of faith feel constrained by time-worn strategies, tactics, and attitudes. Unwritten rules of how to do church seem to force us into neat and tidy patterns. But new ideas and methods are bubbling up in all corners of the Church, and new leaders are taking risks, creating opportunities, and rewriting their communities' definition of church. One such leader is author Scott Chrostek. In The Misfit Mission, Chrostek describes what it looks like for us to do the right thing in ministry, even when logic or 'rules' say it's the wrong thing. He shows how we really can do more than we might ask or imagine, when we remember God's call and the promises of scripture--when we live each day with the expectation of holy surprise.

Chrostek shares inspiring stories from all sorts of people, and often funny, poignant tales from his ministry as church planter and campus pastor of The Church of the Resurrection Downtown, in urban Kansas City. He illustrates how people can uncover their innate passion for knowing and serving Christ, and how a church can become an integral part of the community. The misfit mission is God's own creative, surprising, crazy-beautiful way, and this book proves how we can be a part of it!

Pastors and other church leaders often feel ill-equipped in the critical area of stewardship and giving. Propel: Good Stewardship, Greater Generosity fills that need by offering a comprehensive course in church stewardship for the pastor, stewardship leader, or seminarian. Author Clayton Smith gives clear instructions for the organization and implementation of annual campaigns, planned giving programs, memorial gifts, and much more. He offers an extraordinary depth and breadth of practical information along with the wisdom that comes with decades of real church leadership experience. "Every pastor should have a copy of Propel readily at hand all year long. It is as complete a guide to all phases of Christian financial stewardship as exists today. I highly recommend it because of the excellent content but also because of the author. Clayton Smith has been a student of financial stewardship all his life. I am thrilled that now others may learn from him. I wish I had this book forty years ago when I started out. Propel will make a difference in your ministry!" --J. Clif Christopher, President and CEO, Horizons Stewardship Company "As leaders, we often know we must do something differently, but we are not sure what or how. Clayton Smith propels us forward. This amazing resource identifies the many wayswe can lead our congregations into a bright future. Smith's strategies and methods for generosity apply to every church leader, any size church, and all denominations. This is more than a stewardship or finance book. It helps build a culture in which Christians can become the generous people they are intended to be." --Donald W. Joiner, Director of Operations and Stewardship, General Board of Discipleship "Propel demystifies the practices of generosity and stewardship in local congregations. It is both a scholarly guide for pastors and a detailed handbook for lay leaders. Smith covers giving of all varieties and offers proven techniques that work in churches of all sizes and contexts. Propel is a valuable guide for every leader, clergy or lay, who sees generosity as an inescapable element of Christian discipleship." --Byrd L. Bonner, AIF, President, United Methodist Church Foundation "Clayton Smith in his wonderful book Propel: Good Stewardship, Greater Generosity, describes six different ways to help people grow in their giving." --Margaret Marcuson, Marcuson Leadership Circle

Many of us lead quiet lives of desperation. Longing for purpose, we look to the material world--jobs, money and belongings--to secure meaning for ourselves. Instead we only perpetuate the feeling that a full and significant life is beyond our grasp.Can you relate to this?You are not alone. Through story and Scripture, author Scott Chrostek takes us on a pilgrimage to explore the true meaning and purpose of our existence. Pursuit challenges us to participate fully in God's mission in the world. To do so, we live counter-intuitively--by committing everything we have to God and others, we actually reclaim our freedom and identity.Are you ready to find life? Let the pursuit begin.
