Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism's Looming Catastrophe Audiobook

Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism's Looming Catastrophe

Author: Voddie T. Baucham Narrator: Mirron Willis Release Date: July 2021

We are standing on shaky ground. As a wave of violent riots protesting the death of a black man at the hands of police shook the nation in the summer of 2020, most Americans were shocked. Christians nationwide, eager to fulfill their God-given calling to bring peace and reconciliation, took to pulpits and social media in droves to affirm that "black lives matter" and proclaim that racial justice "is a gospel issue." But what if those Christians, those ministers, and those powerful ministries don't know the whole story behind the new movement that's been making waves in their congregations? Even worse: what if they've been duped into adopting a set of ideas that not only don't align with the Kingdom of God, but stand diametrically opposed to it? In this powerful audiobook, pastor, professor, and leading cultural apologist Voddie Baucham explains the sinister worldview behind the social justice movement and how it has quietly spread like a fault system, not only through our culture, but throughout the evangelical church in America. He also details the devastation it is already wreaking-and what we can do to get back on solid ground before it's too late. Whether you're a layperson who feels like you've just woken up in a strange new world and wonder how to engage both sensitively and effectively in the conversation on race, or a pastor who's wondering how to deal with increasingly polarized factions within your congregation, this audiobook will provide the clarity and understanding you need to either hold your ground, or reclaim it.

Christians Against Christianity: How Right-Wing Evangelicals Are Destroying Our Nation and Our Faith Audiobook

Christians Against Christianity: How Right-Wing Evangelicals Are Destroying Our Nation and Our Faith

Author: Obery M. Hendricks Narrator: Ron Butler Release Date: July 2021

A timely and galvanizing work that examines how right-wing evangelical Christians have veered from an admirable faith to a pernicious, destructive ideology. Today's right-wing Evangelical Christianity stands as the very antithesis of the message of Jesus Christ. In his new book, Christians Against Christianity, best-selling author and religious scholar Obery M. Hendricks Jr. challenges right-wing evangelicals on the terrain of their own religious claims, exposing the falsehoods, contradictions, and misuses of the Bible that are embedded in their rabid homophobia, their poorly veiled racism and demonizing of immigrants and Muslims, and their ungodly alliance with big business against the interests of American workers. He scathingly indicts the religious leaders who helped facilitate the rise of the notoriously unchristian Donald Trump, likening them to the "court jesters" and hypocritical priestly sycophants of bygone eras who unquestioningly supported their sovereigns' every act, no matter how hateful or destructive to those they were supposed to serve. In the wake of the deadly insurrectionist attack on the US Capitol, Christians Against Christianity is a clarion call to stand up to the hypocrisy of the evangelical Right, as well as a guide for Christians to return their faith to the life-affirming message that Jesus brought and died for. What Hendricks offers is a provocative diagnosis, an urgent warning that right-wing evangelicals' aspirations for Christian nationalist supremacy are a looming threat, not only to Christian decency but to democracy itself. What they offer to America is anything but good news.

Transforming Worship: Planning and Leading Sunday Services as If Spiritual Formation Mattered

Author: Rory Noland Narrator: Bob Souer Release Date: July 2021

Spiritual formation is the key to the survival of our faith. Stigmatized by scandal, the church in North America and throughout Europe has been branded as useless and irrelevant. To stem the tide of nominal Christianity, we need to get serious about making disciples who can make other disciples. There is an urgent need today for church services that are substantive and purposeful. Rory Noland is a worship leader who has led in contexts ranging from megachurches to small retreat settings such as the Transforming Center. Combining discipleship and worship-what Noland calls 'Transforming Worship'-he offers a vision for worship as spiritual formation. We need to reclaim our worship services as a formative space, and through that we will become the light of Christ in a dark world.

Over It: How to Face Life's Hurdles with Grit, Hustle, and Grace

Author: Lolo Jones Narrator: Lolo Jones Release Date: July 2021

Read by the author. Three-time Olympian Lolo Jones delivers a tough yet inspiring look into the strategies she has used to overcome immense obstacles on her way to becoming the number-one women's hurdler in the world. Lolo Jones's path to becoming a world champion and an Olympian began in childhood with a single mother who worked multiple jobs to support a family of six and a father who was serving time in prison. These early years instilled in Lolo an overcomer's mindset that gave her the strength she needed to rise above an unstable and impoverished background, to earn an economics degree at LSU, and then to establish herself as the best women's hurdler in the world. In Over It, Lolo delivers a high-octane dose of no-BS encouragement, storytelling, humor, and practicality and exposes the obstacles that too often hold us back. With the same pluck and boldness that defines her life and career, Lolo teaches people how to face their challenges head-on and keep working to overcome them with strength. Even when the obstacles are large and we feel frustrated, overwhelmed, and ready to quit, we've got to keep fighting-full force, full speed. We've got to get over it.

Living Brave: Lessons from Hurt, Lighting the Way to Hope

Author: Shannon Dingle Narrator: Jaime Lamchick Release Date: July 2021

For all women looking to find “hope in a hopeless world and bravery in an age that seems to lack it,” comes a searing memoir by Shannon Dingle, a writer and disability advocate who has navigated loss, trauma, abuse, spiritual reawakening, and deep pain—and come out the other side still hopeful. Shannon Dingle has experienced more than her fair share of tragedy and trauma in her life, including surviving sexual abuse and trafficking as a child that left her with lasting disabilities and experiencing faith shifts that put her at odds with the evangelical church that had been her home. Then, in July 2019, Shannon’s husband was tragically killed by a rogue wave while the family was on vacation. The grief of the aftermath of losing her love and life partner sits at the heart of Living Brave, where Shannon’s searing, raw prose, illustrates what it looks like to take brave steps on the other side of unimaginable loss. Through each challenge, she reveals the ways she learned to walk through them to the other side, and find courage even through the darkest moments. Living Brave gives women permission to wrestle with difficult topics, to use their voice, to take a stand for justice, to honor the wisdom of their bodies, and to enact change from a place of strong faith.
