About the Book: The supernatural visitation described in this book happened in 1992. However, I felt that I could not speak of it openly until the “time was right,” and that time is now! In the years that followed, I had angelic encounters that are also recounted in these pages.The time I spent in the presence of Jesus profoundly changed me! During this time, Jesus promised that the story of His visitation and the teaching He gave during my 45-minutes with Him has the capacity to radically change YOU too.

The supernatural world is all around us. You can’t turn on the TV, go to the movies, or browse a bookstore without being exposed to its influence upon culture today.
Since The Exorcist, movies about demon possession have increased in quantity and gore. Witchcraft invades literature, coming packaged in stories directed towards children. Zombies, ghosts, vampires, and aliens are regular characters featured everywhere from TV dramas to History Channel specials.
Some mock the supernatural. Some preach against it. Some act like it doesn’t even exist.

Matthew W. Bates (Ph.D., University of Notre Dame) is Associate Professor of Theology at Quincy University in Quincy, Illinois. He is pressing the church towards a new precision: we are saved solely by allegiance to Jesus the king. Instead of faith alone, Christians must speak about salvation by allegiance alone.
About the Book: We are saved by faith when we trust that Jesus died for our sins. This is the gospel, or so we are taught. But what is faith? And does this accurately summarize the gospel? Because faith is frequently misunderstood and the climax of the gospel misidentified, the gospel’s full power remains untapped. While offering a fresh proposal for what faith means within a biblical theology of salvation, Matthew Bates presses the church toward a new precision: we are saved solely by allegiance to Jesus the king. Instead of faith alone, Christians must speak about salvation by allegiance alone. The book includes discussion questions for students, pastors, and church groups and a foreword by Scot McKnight.
About the Author: Matthew W. Bates (PhD, University of Notre Dame) is assistant professor of theology at Quincy University in Quincy, Illinois. He is the author of The Hermeneutics of the Apostolic Proclamation and The Birth of the Trinity.

Andrew T. Walker serves as the Director of Policy Studies for the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. In this conversation we examine some of the core topics covered in his book God and the Transgender Debate, including:
Culturally, how did we get here?
What would Jesus say to the person experiencing gender dysphoria or identifying themselves as transgender?
If Christians take the golden rule to heart, what does it look like to love your transgender neighbor?
How can parents effectively engage their children in discussion on these topics?
About the book: What is transgender and gender fluidity? What does God’s Word actually say about these issues? How can the gospel be good news for someone experiencing gender dysphoria? How should churches respond?
This warm, faithful and careful book helps Christians understand what the Bible says about gender identity. It will help us to engage lovingly, thoughtfully and faithfully with one of the most explosive cultural discussions of our day.
If you want to learn more and love better, and are open to considering what God has to say about sex and gender, this hope-filled book is for you.
Includes a section looking at practical questions including:
– Can someone be transgender and Christian?
– Should I mind if people who are biologically the other sex are in my restroom?
– What should church leaders do if a congregation member asks for their child to be identified as the opposite gender?
– Is it true that Christian teaching is harmful and can lead to depression and higher suicide rates?
– What about people who are born intersex?
