Are you ready for “romance with purpose”?

New! Courtship Conversations

Eight ideas for great dates that will help grow and guide your relationship.

Story Behind the Book

“I wrote I Kissed Dating Goodbye to challenge singles to drop the worldly approach to serial dating and reconsider the way they pursued romance in light of God’s Word. Since then, I’ve received letters asking questions like, So, what comes between friendship and marriage? and, How can you know when you are ready for marriage? Boy Meets Girl answers those questions. Now as a happily married man I can look back on my courtship with Shannon and see from personal experience that God is faithful. If you trust Him enough to wait on romance in dating, He will lovingly guide you as you pursue it in courtship…right to that wonderful moment when you kneel together at the altar.” — Joshua Harris

Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God J. I. Packer  
More Details

If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evangelize? Or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereign at all?

J. I. Packer shows in this new edition to the popular IVP Classics how both of these attitudes are false. In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he shows how a right understanding of God's sovereignty is not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it.

With over 100,000 copies in print, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God is truly a classic that should be read by every Christian.

The Multiplying Church: The New Math for Starting New Churches Bob Roberts Jr.  
More Details

The Multiplying Church is a primer for pastors and lay leaders involved in, or wanting to learn about, the church multiplication groundswell in North America. It shows how multiplying churches should be a natural, regular function of every church to reach the 70 percent of Americans who have no meaningful church relationship.

Detailing the stories and guiding principles of this dramatic growth, this guide offers insight on:

* Why churches are multiplying in the East but not in the West
* Keys to church multiplication
* The missing link—pregnant mother churches
* Antioch vs. Jerusalem: Which got it right?
* What kind of churches should we start?
* What is the end game of church planting?
* How big does a church have to be to start multiplying churches?
* Church planting movements or Jesus movements?

Bob Roberts helps us return to an early-church model of multiplication where a single church sent laypeople out to plant other communities of believers.
