ANOINTED-FOR-BIZ-500RM 32.90

Every Business Is God’s Business. The notion that labor for profit and worship of God are now, and always have been, worlds apart, is patently false. The Early Church founders were mostly community leaders and highly successful business people. The writing of the Gospels was entrusted to Luke, a medical doctor; Matthew, a retired tax collector; Mark, the manager of a family trust; and John, a food supplier. Lydia was a dealer in purple cloth. Dorcas was a clothes designer. Today, more than ever, the heart of our cities is the marketplace. Yet the perceived wall between commercial pursuit and service to God continues to knock down that wall and build the foundation for an unparalleled marketplace revival. Only then can we extend God’s kingdom to every corner of our world.

God is showing up in places we have never imagined. We thought He was just for Sunday church or mid-week Bible study. But God is showing up in small businesses and on construction sites, in schools and in politics. He is ion factories and at check-out counters, at nurses’ stations and the stock exchange. God is showing up everywhere outside of where we expect Him to be.

Discover how he wants you to step into a realm of ministry and fulfillment you have never dreamed possible. Learn how your work is the powerful dynamic of God’s purpose for your life.

This book is the beginning of new possibilities for those who are willing to see that God is bigger than they thought He was.


 

LifeWorkRM 59.90

We spend 50 to 75 percent of our waking hours and 60 to 90 percent of the years of our lives working. Yet many of us never invest even a fraction of that time exploring the vision that drives our lives and work.

Whether or not we think of ourselves as theologians, none of us can avoid having a theology that shapes our lives. The question is, are we aware of what our personal, functioning theology really is?

Few know better how practical theology is than Darrow Miller. In more than twenty-five years of work in relief and development, Miller has lived at the intersection of worldview and everyday activity. Now, in this exploration of vocation that has the potential to radically reorder our lives, Miller lays out the thought background necessary for each of us to establish a meaningful, integrated understanding of our life and work. Whatever our work or vocation, God calls each of us to a new way of living fully in his presence.

Instead of regarding work as a diversion from the spiritual life, R. Paul Stevens and Alvin Ung are convinced that it is an arena and an incentive for spiritual growth. However, they acknowledge that this is not without its challenges.

Work in Progress examines life in the workplace through an innovative exploration of both the seven deadly sins and the ninefold fruit of the Spirit. This approach provides a framework to reveal how the Spirit has given Christians powerful gifts to overcome struggles the face in the challenges of daily work in a globalized world. The authors interact both with one another and with the wisdom of great spiritual writers of history in order to draw out real-life dilemmas and to suggest practical tips for becoming vibrant disciples in the workplace.

In addition to filling a critical need for a resource on spiritual growth at work, Work in Progress has an intercultural approach — the authors are from Canada and Malaysia — that is particularly dynamic and engaging.


 

BK-1008-2RM 28.00

Faith in the workplace is a subject of recent interest in the secular media is taking the nation by storm. God is using the lives of ordinary men and women to make an impact and transform their workplaces, big and small, for Jesus Christ. Readers of the 9 to 5 Window will learn about this incredible movement and what can take place when people transform their view of work from a means of paying the bills to a means of freeing people in bondage and giving those around them (and themselves) purpose and meaning in life and at work. Using Moses as an example of a person who learned to view his work from an eternal perspective, Os Hillman shows how we all can experience transformed lives, workplaces, cities and nations.

Release the power of the Church in the marketplace!

Peter Wagner, “faith and work movement” expert, shares the most significant paradigm shift since the Reformation: bridge-building between the nuclear church and the extended church. But there’s a gap between the once-a-week church and the church in the workplace. Creating Harmony between these two powerful forces allows believers in both realms to fulfill their God-given mandates.

God’s people make up the Church every day, not just on Sunday. On the other six days, we transform into the “extended church.” Wagner’s comprehensive volume shows Christians how to expand their vision and live out their faith both on the clock and in the pews.

Jesus ministered in the marketplace. So should we. But the culture won’t be transformed unless it happens through us. The Church in the Workplace is a comprehensive guide to workplace transformation and will help you understand your call to service, to sense that God stands ready to anoint your work.

All Christians, no matter the task or employer, can grasp God’s authority and power when they see their job as a holy invitation to claim souls for the Kingdom.


 

The Seven Mountain MantleRM 41.90

God is preparing a spiritual tsunami to sweep the nations and reclaim our culture for Christ, says author Jonny Enlow. He describes seven culture-shaping areas of influence over each society—media, government, education, economy, family, religion, and celebration (arts and entertainment)—that are the keys to taking a nation for the kingdom of God. The purpose of this book is to draw the church’s attention to these areas; help each individual determine his or her specific assignment in this mission; and then to offer insight into the nature of the battles involved in this “spiritual tsunami,” as the author calls it.

Many Christians do not grasp that God’s favor for us to succeed is already upon us and is part of His end-time strategy to establish Jesus as Ruler of the Nations before His return. Readers will come to understand that this favor is divinely strategic and corresponds to the place of each person’s ministry assignment. Many have a spiritual poverty vision and poor eschatology, two factors that have robbed us of our blessing and caused us to fail to reclaim cultural influences for Christ.

The book is laid out to address these two misunderstandings, with the first several chapters specifically aimed at correcting lack of vision and misguided understanding of the end times. Each chapter that follows provides intensive, detailed study of each “mountain” of influence, how it will be taken and by whom, and what resistance will be encountered by individuals assigned to claim this mountain.

In this follow-up to his first release, The Seven Mountain Prophecy, Enlow explains how God revealed His plan to raise up “Josephs”—sons and daughters who would bear His favor, dream His dreams, and reclaim the seven mountains, or sectors, of society for His glory. Instead of the global meltdown seen in today’s society, the Lord promises to send His grace on our nation, other nations, and the church. Enlow proceeds to explains to readers what they will have to do to become one of these “Josephs” and how they can discern the role God desires them to play in His vision for the days to come

Revised and expanded for a new generation of leaders, Bob Buford’s bestseller shows how you can make the second half of your life even more rewarding than the first.


 

God loves us and has a unique blueprint for our life–but it’s up to us to find it and live it out. Mingling contemporary stories and biblical anecdotes with practical advice, Silvoso shows how God intervenes in human affairs today to transform people and nations. He also shares five critical paradigms for transformation that are pivotal for change: Discipling Nations, Reclaiming the Marketplace, Looking at Work as Worship, Becoming Salt and Light, and Eliminating Poverty. In these pages, readers will find extraordinary stories about the power of God working through those who discovered their specific purpose. Then, they’ll be challenged to transform themselves and, by doing so, transform their families, schools, businesses and nations. Silvoso encourages readers to aim high, knowing that God has entrusted them with great things. “God sees you as a nation transformer,” says Silvoso. He has faith in you!
