Many seek reassurance or perceived unity by creating doctrinal statements, but that misses the point. Doctrine is necessary but it is not the solution.
In his new book Until Unity, New York Times best-selling author, Francis Chan, shows readers that the real problem is shallow or even non-existent love for each other. Do we truly understand the gospel? Do we believe in the miracle of the Holy Spirit in us? As believers, Christians are supposed to yield the fruit of supernatural love for one another. Instead, we allow jealousy and selfish ambition to prevail.
God hates this division between His children—and our indifference to it. He has provided the solution to the Church through gifting of leaders to equip His people in a way that leads to “unity of the faith”—but not at the expense of truth or holiness. Believers have done a poor job at this, but we can hear the call and be “eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Ephesians 4:3).
Although the Bible commands unity, some will resist these unifying efforts. We see it every day. We have to hate sin, love truth, and pursue unity for the Church. This is messy, but no matter what, Christians must give everything they have to the pursuit of a unified, restored Bride.
You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity
by Francis and Lisa Chan
Marriage is great, but it’s not forever. It’s until death do us part. Then come eternal rewards or regrets depending on how we spent our lives.
Francis Chan joins together with his wife Lisa to address the question many couples wonder at the altar: “How do I have a healthy marriage?” Setting aside typical topics on marriage, Francis and Lisa dive into Scripture to understand what it means to have a relationship that satisfies the deepest parts of our souls.
In the same way Crazy Love changed the way we saw our personal relationship with God, You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity will radically shift the way we see one of the most important relationships in our life.
Jesus was right. We have it all backwards. The way to have a great marriage is by not focusing on marriage. Whether you are single, dating or married, You and Me Forever will help you discover the adventure that you were made for and learn how to thrive in it.
Truth Matters, Life Matters More
by Hank Hanegraaff
Knowing and understanding the truth of the Bible has never been more important than it is now in these times of collective doubt and crumbling institutions. But as important as absolute truth is, its value pales in comparison to the ultimate reality of living in union with and knowing God.
Be prepared to have your eyes opened and your perceptions challenged in this surprising and important masterwork from one of the great theological minds of our time.
Throughout his lengthy career as a student of Scripture and as an apologist and teacher, Hank Hanegraaff has always argued passionately for the importance of biblical truth and biblical understanding. Through his many published books and his long-running radio show, Bible Answer Man, his name has become synonymous with commitment to both theological rigor and an explanation of theological truth that is digestible for the lay believer.
In the first half of this compelling and powerful book, Hank lays out the clear case for the importance of biblical truth in our time in the persuasive and practical way that only he can. In the surprising and unexpected second half of the book, he explores biblical truth not as an end but as a pathway to the ultimate truth—the personhood of God. Hank explains with both precision and compassion that the Bible is a map God has given us to draw us deeper into Himself, and that we cheat ourselves of real truth when we elevate the message above the Messenger.
