  • Liberating Ministry from the Success Syndrome

    Liberating Ministry from the Success Syndrome
    Liberating Ministry from the Success Syndrome

    By R. Kent Hughes and Barbara Hughes

    Cost: $40 from CYC Bookroom

    Product Description ( from Amazon.com )

    How does one measure success in ministry? Longtime pastor Kent Hughes and his wife Barbara urge readers to turn to God’s Word rather than numbers.

    Every year thousands of God’s servants leave the ministry convinced they are failures. Years ago, in the midst of a crisis of faith, Kent Hughes almost became one of them. But instead he and his wife Barbara turned to God’s Word, determined to learn what God had to say about success and to evaluate their ministry from a biblical point of view.

    This book describes their journey and their liberation from the “success syndrome”-the misguided belief that success in ministry means increased numbers. In today’s world it is easy to be seduced by the secular thinking that places a number on everything. But the authors teach that true success in ministry lies not in numbers but in several key areas: faithfulness, serving, loving, believing, prayer, holiness, and a Christlike attitude. Their thoughts will encourage readers who grapple with feelings of failure and lead them to a deeper, fuller understanding of success in Christian ministry.

    This book was originally published by Tyndale in 1987 and includes a new preface.

  • Just Do Something

    Just Do Something
    Just Do Something

    By Kevin DeYoung; Hardcover;

    Cost: $25 from CYC Bookroom

    Product Description ( from Amazon.com )

    Hyper-spiritual approaches to finding God’s will don’t work. It’s time to try something new: Give up.

    Pastor and author Kevin DeYoung counsels Christians to settle down, make choices, and do the hard work of seeing those choices through. Too often, he writes, God’s people tinker around with churches, jobs, and relationships, worrying that they haven’t found God’s perfect will for their lives. Or—even worse—they do absolutely nothing, stuck in a frustrated state of paralyzed indecision, waiting . . . waiting . . . waiting for clear, direct, unmistakable direction.

    But God doesn’t need to tell us what to do at each fork in the road. He’s already revealed his plan for our lives: to love him with our whole hearts, to obey His Word, and after that, to do what we like.

    No need for hocus-pocus. No reason to be directionally challenged. Just do something.

  • Why We Love The Church

    Why We Love The Church
    Why We Love The Church

    By Kevin DeYoung and Ted Kluck; Paperback;

    Cost: $30 from CYC Bookroom

    Product Description ( from Amazon.com )

    Why We Love the Church presents the case for loving the local church.  It paints a picture of the local church in all its biblical and real life guts, gaffes, and glory in an effort to edify local congregations and entice the disaffected back to the fold.  It also provides a solid biblical mandate to love and be part of the body of Christ and counteract the “leave church” books that trumpet rebellion and individual felt needs.

    Why We Love the Church is written for four kinds of people – the Committed, the Disgruntled, the Waffling & the Disconnected.

  • Swans Are Not Silent #05: Filling up the Afflications of Christ

    Swans Are Not Silent #05: Filling up the Afflications of Christ
    Swans Are Not Silent #05: Filling up the Afflications of Christ

    By John Piper; Hardcover;

    Cost: $35 from CYC Bookroom

    Product Description ( from Amazon.com )

    The fifth volume in Piper’s acclaimed The Swans Are Not Silent series illustrates powerful and enduring lessons through the missional sufferings of Tyndale, Judson, and Paton.

    Jesus’ words in John 12 are sobering: unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it will bear little fruit. The history of Christianity’s expansion proves that God’s strategy for reaching unreached peoples with the gospel includes the sufferings of his frontline heralds-the missionaries who willingly die a thousand daily deaths to advance God’s kingdom.

    Pastor John Piper’s latest addition to The Swans Are Not Silent series focuses on this flesh-and-blood reality in the lives of William Tyndale, Adoniram Judson, and John Paton. The price they paid to translate the Word of God, to pave the way for missionary mobilization around the world, and to lead the hostile to Christ was great. Yet their stories show in triplicate how the gospel advances not only through the faithful proclamation of the truth but through representing the afflictions of Christ in our sufferings.

  • This Momentary Marriage

    This Momentary Marriage
    This Momentary Marriage

    By John Piper; Hardback;

    Cost: $40 from CYC Bookroom

    Product Description ( from Amazon.com )

    Reflecting on forty years of matrimony, John Piper exalts the biblical meaning of marriage over its emotion, exhorting couples to keep their covenant for all the best reasons.

    Even in the days when people commonly stayed married “’til death do us part,” there has never been a generation whose view of marriage was high enough, says Pastor John Piper. That is all the more true in our casual times.

    Though personal selfishness and cultural bondage obstruct the wonder of God’s purpose, it is found in God’s Word, where his design can awaken a glorious vision capable of freeing every person from small, Christ-ignoring, romance-intoxicated views. As Piper explains in reflecting on forty years of matrimony: “Most foundationally, marriage is the doing of God. And ultimately, marriage is the display of God. It displays the covenant-keeping love between Christ and his people to the world in a way that no other event or institution does. Marriage, therefore, is not mainly about being in love. It’s mainly about telling the truth with our lives. And staying married is not about staying in love. It is about keeping covenant and putting the glory of Christ’s covenant-keeping love on display.”

    This Momentary Marriage unpacks the biblical vision, its unexpected contours, and its weighty implications for married, single, divorced, and remarried alike.
