We’re counting down the days to the biggest sales event of the year by offering best-in-class deals every day—its our countdown to Blackboard Friday! Featuring some of our bestselling titles, you’re guaranteed to find a deal that’s too good to pass up.
We’re kicking off the celebration with an incredible deal on our brand-new Lexham Ministry Guides, edited by Harold Senkbeil. Get the first three volumes in this series for just $25!
The Lexham Ministry Guides offer practical, proven wisdom for the church. But wisdom takes time. The authors in this series developed their wisdom through years of ministry experience and conversations with colleagues. These books invite you to enter into these conversations to better serve the Savior’s sheep and lambs with confidence. You will find hands-on tools, lessons from years of ministry experience, and an array of resources to apply to your own ministry context.
Christ’s sheep need shepherding. That’s where you come in.
Based on a sound theological framework, Senkbeil and Woodford present a set of practical tools for church leadership and strategy. Calling on their vast experience, they encourage pastors to protect, guide, and feed their flock as Jesus would, bridging the eternal wisdom of the word of God with the everyday practicality of hands-on leadership.
“It’s rare to find a work on pastoral leadership that is practical and at the same time rich with grace. With hard-gained wisdom and biblical insight, Harold Senkbeil and Lucas Woodford have provided a guide to shepherding worth every minister’s valuable time.”
—Jared C. Wilson, assistant professor of pastoral ministry, Spurgeon College; author of Gospel-Driven Ministry
Death will strike your congregation. Are you ready? Are they?
Fear of death affects us all, and so pastors have significant hurdles to overcome. What Christians need today is a renewed vision of the traditional Christian funeral liturgy. In Funerals, Tim Perry recovers the rich theology inherent to the Christian funeral: communion with the saints in death, peace in forgiveness, hope in the resurrection, and joy in life eternal. Perry guides pastors through the practice of funerals, from planning the service to preaching the eulogy, and offers wisdom for the hard cases.
“This is the best of pastoral theology: wise at discerning the times, gentle in its recommendations for the care of souls, incendiary as it fires the pastoral vocation all over again. Reading Funerals will remind you why you wanted to be a pastor in the first place.”
—Jason Byassee, Butler Chair in Homiletics and Biblical Interpretation, The Vancouver School of Theology
Stewardship isn’t just managing resources—it’s soul care.
Nathan Meador and Heath R. Curtis present a practical theology of stewardship focused on ministry in service of the gospel. Guiding pastors away from the pitfalls of idolatry around money, they instead call stewards to embrace their identity in Christ and encourage their congregations to do the same. This fresh approach to stewardship reorients both individuals and congregations toward their true purpose as stewards who have been baptized into Christ.
“Nathan Meador and Heath Curtis bring years of pastoral ministry experience to this project, weaving together theological commitments, biblical understanding, wisdom from their years of service, and insightful counsel for teaching and addressing these vitally important issues in the life of a congregation.”
—David S. Dockery, President, International Alliance for Christian Education and Distinguished Professor of Theology, Southwestern Seminary
