Creation, Calamity, and Reconstruction: A Biblical Sequence with Evidence from Geology that Evolution is Invalid Science
($15.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7572-7, paperback
If evolutionary theories about the age of planet Earth are correct, why don't the findings of geologists bear them out? What the rocks tell us is something else entirely and to explain it, Dr. Carpenter presents a lucid, carefully substantiated investigation of our prehistory.
Through study and analysis of the Scriptures themselves and drawing upon the published research of others in the field, Dr. Carpenter offers a considerably more complex view of Creation than most of us grew up with. "The Scriptures don't lie," Dr. Carpenter says. But they do need careful examination. Much went on between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2.

God Is No Respecter of Persons: A Course Designed to Increase Multicultural Understanding, Relationships, and Ministry Among Christians, Workbook and Discussion Guide, Teacher Manual
($14.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7724-0, paperback
The world is made up of people of all different cultures, all different experiences, and all different perceptions. Even when we are sincere, it is often difficult to relate to people who look, speak, and behave differently from us.
This book offers Christians of all backgrounds the opportunity to come together in a classroom setting or a bible study group to learn simple guidelines and lessons that will help them become more effective when relating and ministering to people from diverse backgrounds and unfamiliar cultures. The lessons in this course are also designed to help Christians identify myths, stereotypes, and belief systems that hinder unity and positive interactions in the Body of Christ. Christians from every denomination will not only develop an understanding of God's heart for missions and cross-cultural ministry, but they will gain insights for improving their relationships with all people in their local church.

Key of SEE
($8.00) ISBN: 978-1-4349-0050-0, paperback
One Sunday morning, a preacher is walking to his church when he comes across a young boy in a tree. The two begin a dialogue written in the style of the famous philosophical dialogues of Socrates, in this case regarding Christianity. As the boy shares his views on the word of God and religion as a whole, others gather to listen to him. Much like Jesus, the people enjoy his ideas while the preacher and other teachers of religion who wander by feel threatened.
Using biblical quotes and a unique format, Thomas Channing presents important and undoubtedly controversial ideas in Key of SEE. Those who read this book may find themselves perplexed or comforted, but either way, the book will indeed cause a reaction in the heart of the reader as it shares the truth of the Bible.
