God is not a pluralist. Both the New Age and the ecumenical movement have been steadily chipping away at the orthodox Christian teaching that Jesus is the only way of salvation.

This booklet documents precisely what Jesus and the Apostles taught about religious pluralism. It includes nine different lines of argument the Bible uses--backed by 100 verses--to show that all spiritual roads don't "lead to Rome."

There is only one way: Jesus.
"If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins" (1 Cor. 15:17).

The resurrection. As far as doctrines go, it's a game changer. Many accept the resurrection without giving it much thought. But isn't something so important worthy of our wrestling with it?

Warner Wallace is a retired cold-case detective. He also used to be an atheist. Follow along in this brief presentation of his approach in applying his detective's expertise to the accounts of the resurrection. Wallace believes the case is nothing but compelling: Jesus is alive!

Relativism: Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air
Paperback: $17.00
Our Price: $15.30
Writing from years of experience in defending Christian values, Francis Beckwith and Gregory Koukl offer a critique of moral relativism. In the tradition of C.S. Lewis and Francis Schaeffer, the authors consider issues of fundamental concern for Christians in a straightforward, uncomplicated manner.

Beckwith and Koukl explore the inconsistencies inherent in the relativist position, suggest specific approaches that can be used in the course of dialogue, and consider the everyday implications of relativism, especially in relation to important issues such as abortion, homosexuality, multiculturalism, political correctness, and tolerance.

This book offers commonsense assistance to all who desire to understand the modern challenges to the Christian faith and its moral system, that they might be better equipped to defend their beliefs. Christian educators, church leaders, and students will also find this an important study.
Biblical Christianity is more than just another private religious view. It’s more than just a personal relationship with God or a source of moral teaching. Christianity is a picture of reality. Christianity is a true story of how the world began, why the world is the way it is, what role humans play in the drama, and how all the plotlines of the story are resolved in the end.

Our story begins with God. He created everything, but something went terribly wrong. So God initiated a rescue plan and entered the world that he had made by becoming like us in Jesus Christ. Jesus saved us from the wrongness in ourselves and in the world through his death on a cross. And how people respond to what he did will determine their future at the final event of history: the resurrection.

If you are already a Christian, this is your story. Do you know it? If you are not a Christian, this is still your story, because it explains the world in a way that nothing else will. It is a true story—the real story behind every other story we hear.

This resource is ideal for giving to friends and family—believers and nonbelievers alike. Discounts for multiple copies are available. Please see the "Quantity Discount" tab above for details.
