Simply Christian. Not since C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity has such a wise and informed leader taken the time to explain what Christianity is and how it is practiced. In Simply Christian, renowned biblical scholar and Anglican bishop N.T. Wright makes a case for Christianity from the ground up. Walking the reader through the Christian faith step-by-step and question by question, Wright’s Simply Christian offers explanations for even the toughest doubt-filled skeptics, leaving believers with a reason for renewed faith.


Sit, Walk, Stand is based on the three key words which divide the book of Ephesians into its basic sections. Our position in Christ is one of sitting, our life in the world is one of walking, and our attitude toward Satan is one of standing. The Christian’s entire life is to be founded and lived out from the finished work of Jesus. In its 78 pages the book concisely sums up a massive amount of Biblical theology and applies it to the believer’s everyday life. Watchman Nee takes the grand theological treatise of Ephesians and breaks it down into simple, memorable and practical statements. “Christianity begins not with the big DO, but with a big DONE” (p 14). “The all-important rule is not to “try” but to “trust,” not to depend upon our own strength but upon His” (p 38). “Our task is one of holding, not of attacking. We do not fight for victory, we fight from victory” (p 55). This is only a sampling of many profound statements, which have launched hundreds of sermons. The spiritual truths outlined in Sit, Walk, Stand are simple but profound, critical but often forgotten. The book is a great source for reminding us of these truths. Review by Todd Hudnall


What Shall This Man Do? Not sure if you “fit the mold” of ministry? Watchman Nee encourages us that God calls people from diverse backgrounds and equips them for distinctive tasks. Though each of us is called to a unique place of service, our ministries are not in conflict, but complementary. “You advance spiritually by finding out what you are,” Nee says, “not by trying to become what you hope to be.” Nee draws from the lives of three apostles to illustrate essential elements of Christian ministry:

  • Peter, “fisher of men” – leading others to the WAY
  • Paul, teacher of Scripture – instructing others in the LIFE
  • John, elder in the church – discipling others in the TRUTH

Death of Truth and the Decline of Culture. We live in trying times. Those of us who take belief in the God of the Bible seriously feel burdened by the problems that arise in our increasingly secular, pluralistic society. People are abandoning truth, Western culture is dying, and the lines between right and wrong are becoming irrevocably blurred. The goal of this event was to allow two prominent voices in the public square – one Jewish and one evangelical Christian – to engage in an open, honest, and entertaining dialogue about these challenges we face as a nation and civilization.
