Uses Jesus' words and actions found in the New Testament to systematically evaluate his rhetorical stylings, drawing real lessons from his teachings that today's readers can employ. Jesus of Nazareth never wrote a book, held political office, or wielded a sword. He never gained sway with the mighty or influential. He never took up arms against the governing powers in Rome. He was a lower-class worker who died an excruciating death at the age of thirty-three. Yet, in spite of all odds-obscurity, powerlessness, and execution-his words revolutionized human history. How to Argue Like Jesus examines the life and words of Jesus and describes the various ways in which he sought-through the spoken word, his life, and his disciples-to reach others with his message. The authors then pull some very simple rhetorical lessons from Jesus' life that readers can use today. Both Christian and non-Christian leaders in just about any field can improve their ability to communicate effectively by studying the words and methods of history's greatest communicator.

Learning Evangelism from Jesus by Jerram Barrs $0.99
Studying Jesus' conversations with diverse people in his day, Jerram Barrs draws lessons and principles for attractively communicating the gospel to unbelievers in our day. Living in a culture that is opposed to Christianity tempts God's people to conform, to retreat, to be silent. But Jesus showed the way to live faithfully before an unbelieving world. As the greatest evangelist, Jesus exemplified how to attract people to the gospel. He modeled how to initiate spiritual conversations full of grace and truth. Christian evangelism, then, both in theory and practice, must be shaped by his pattern. Seeking to articulate the passions and principles present in Christ's life and words, longtime L'Abri staff member Jerram Barrs has studied Jesus' diverse encounters with people throughout the Gospels. Each chapter of Learning Evangelism from Jesus recounts one of those stories, draws useful lessons for readers' lives and communication of the gospel, and concludes with questions for further reflection and application. This highly practical book will guide Christians in how to live before unbelievers and how to love them into the kingdom, just as Jesus did.

Holy Subversion: Allegiance to Christ in an Age of Rivals by Trevin Wax $0.99
Christians are too often guilty of pledging their allegiance to the influential principalities and powers of this age rather than to Christ alone. In Holy Subversion, Trevin Wax challenges such behavior by urging a return to the subversive lifestyle of the earliest Christians. Their proclamation and demonstration that "Jesus is Lord" directly opposed the Caesar worship of their day. Today, Christians in the West must choose between Jesus and our "Caesars": self, success, money, leisure, sex, power. What would it look like, asks Wax, if today's church reclaimed the communal, subversive nature of the gospel, intentionally undermining all contenders for our devotion? How would the message that "Jesus is Lord" change our thinking about our jobs, our families, and our church participation? Here this gifted pastor-theologian offers help in taking our faith public, dethroning modern-day Caesars, honoring the Lordship of Christ, and understanding the church as the ultimate counterculture-an embodiment of Christ's supremacy over all.

John Newton: From Disgrace to Amazing Grace by Jonathan Aitken $0.99
Most Christians know John Newton as a man who once captained a slave ship, was dramatically converted to Christ on the high seas, and later penned one of the greatest hymns of the faith, "Amazing Grace." But he also had a huge impact on his times as an icon of the evangelical movement, as a great preacher and theologian, and as a seminal influence on abolitionist William Wilberforce. Newton's friendship with Wilberforce is portrayed in the major motion picture Amazing Grace. Jonathan Aitken's new biography John Newton explores all these facets of Newton's life and character. It is the first biography to draw on Newton's unpublished diaries and correspondence, providing fresh insight into the life of this complex and memorable Christian. The result is a fascinating, colorful, and historically significant portrait of John Newton, a self-described "great sinner" redeemed by a great Savior through amazing grace.

Why It Doesn't Matter What You Believe If It's Not True by Stephen McAndrew $0.99
We’ve all heard the statement (and maybe even said it ourselves), “It’s all relative.” But are moral truths relative? If that is the case, how then can there be universal human rights? McAndrew’s book argues that if there are universal human rights, then moral truths also must be absolute. Society has moved from a worldview that accepted the existence of absolute truth to a world of relative truth. This paradigm shift was primarily motivated by a desire to render philosophy more scientific by eliminating metaphysical theories. But the twentieth century witnessed another shift after the Second World War. Out of that bloody conflict arose the recognition for the need to articulate human rights and hence the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. However, universal human rights make no sense in a morally relative world. A relative theory of truth is inconsistent with morally condemning acts of others, no matter how heinous. This book challenges those who embrace the “human rights urge” to honestly look at the contradiction between relative truth and universal human rights and examine without prejudice to see where this leads them.

Faith on Trial: Analyze the Evidence for the Death and Resurrection of Jesus by Pamela Bennings Ewing $0.99
For those without faith or with lingering moments of doubt, Faith on Trial sets forth solid evidence for the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ – much of it only becoming available in the last few decades. Lawyer, author, and former agnostic Pamela Binnings Ewen illuminates Christianity as the only world religion that can be based upon verifiable facts. Developing those facts, she invites readers into the jury box and then examines under court-required standards the gospel testimonies of the witnesses: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Were these authors of the gospels writing from personal knowledge, or was it second-hand information? Holding bedrock Christian beliefs up for detailed scrutiny, Faith on Trial forms a powerful chain of proof using archeological, historic, scientific, manuscript-based, and even medical evidence to build the case. Facts and reason are not provided as substitutes for faith in Faith On Trial. But for those seeking answers, or those who doubt, these facts and reason can provide the key to revelation and a firm foundation for faith. ORDER YOUR COPY NOW >>>
