Here's what's inside. 

 

The middle ages and Reformation began a conversation about truth, beauty, and goodness. Modernity and postmodernism tragically interrupted that conversation, and modern Evangelicalism has often simply echoed the hollowness of our modern culture. But we can do better.

The modern view of the world is empty and lifeless, nothing more than a bunch of matter in motion, with life by the thousandth chance emerging from chaos. The modern world, as a result, can only conceive of progress as more efficiency, more technology, more domination.

In stark contrast to this, Christianity presents a glorious vision for culture, and the vision of a world with truth, beauty, and goodness built into the very molecules of the universe.

Medieval and Protestant Christianity began a conversation about truth, beauty, and goodness, but secularism ended the conversation mid-sentence. Sadly many Christians, while continuing to believe in the Gospel have become just as blind to the beauty of the universe and the need for a culture in which that beauty is recognized and cultivated.

This book sketches a vision of Medieval Protestantism, covering such diverse topics as creeds, poetry, history, the church, feasting, and storytelling as they are to be found in the Christian faith alone.

 

Christians think that making fun of people is never okay. If so, then why did Jesus and the prophets do so much of it?

Satire is a kind of preaching. Satire pervades Scripture. Satire treats the foibles of sinners with a less than perfect tenderness. But if a Christian employs satire today, he is almost immediately called to account for his "insensitive" and "unloving" behavior. But is the Golden Rule really "be nice"? Actually, Scripture shows that the central point of some religious controversies is to give offense. When Christ was confronted with ecclesiastical obstinacy and other forms of arrogance, He showed us a godly pattern for giving offense.

In every controversy godliness and wisdom (or the lack of them) are to be determined by careful appeal to the Scriptures and not the fact of people having taken offense. In this book, veteran satirist Douglas Wilson explains his rationale for why so much of what he says gets people upset and yet he continues to speak as he does, and why you should (sometimes) too for the sake of the Gospel.

"When Nehemiah was leading the Jews in their project of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, the enemies of Israel mocked them and said, “It is reported among the heathen, and Gashmu saith it, that thou and the Jews think to rebel: for which cause thou buildest the wall, that thou mayest be their king, according to these words” (Neh. 6:6).

Today we see a culture that is increasingly hostile to Christians, and Christians are increasingly aware that they need to form strong communities to do for them what the culture no longer can. This is a good  thing, but it will only work if like Nehemiah and his men we are committed to resisting the dictates of our culture. If we are at all afraid of looking like the crazy fundamentalists that our culture loves to hate, then our communities will be as easily led by the culture as anybody else.

In this short book, Pastor Douglas Wilson describes some of the most important ways to create and maintain counter-cultural Christian communities. Whether he is talking about the need for kids to get calluses or for love and loyalty within churches, Douglas Wilson brings decades of on-the-ground wisdom and experience to the topic.

A city without walls is not really a city; neither is a city without a church at the center. Get busy. Build the walls, fight sin, love your family and church, and live out the Gospel."

 


A Primer on Worship and Reformation

You Say You Want a Reformation?

Look Inside the Book or Listen on Canon+

It is no secret that our world desperately needs change. Politicians know this and use it to collect votes. Journalists exploit it to sell newspapers and magazines. Advertisers, to sell everything else. Each of these groups (and countless others) spend their lives working to convince others that they hold the key to a better country, a better life, a better future.

But what exactly is this change we all long for? And how can it ever come about? A Primer on Worship and Reformation proposes that true change begins, not with a process or an idea, but through faithful worship. To witness true global change—true reformation—we must first pray the Lord that we would see worship at the center of life. The truth is that when the Word is faithfully preached, even the gates of hell tremble. When the Psalms are sung, the meek inherit the earth. When the church celebrates at the Lord's Table, those who mourn are comforted.

If we learn these lessons and believe them to be true, we will find that through renewed worship God brings change to every facet of our lives.

My son cannot get enough of this book!

Read it Three Times-So Good

When a book gives expression to something you've been wondering about for a long time, you tend to devour it, which is why I read Black & Tan 3x. I haven't found fault with the underlying premises nor the path it takes to conclusions about our American past, including our unwarranted northern superiority complex regarding slavery, residual angst over why only here it took over half a million men's lives to end slavery and the monstrous federal bureaucracy that emerged from all that, leading directly to many of our socio-economic and spiritual problems of today. Will likely read it again and refer to it in the future.

Strangely Bright: Can You Love God and Enjoy This World? (2nd Ed)

Mere Christendom

How To Exasperate Your Wife

Direct, satirical, and pulling no punches, this collection of essays delivers a dose of much needed motivation and urgency to fathers and husbands alike. I would highly recommend it.

Get the Girl

Pastor Wilson's witty format and clever advice are thoroughly grounded in Scripture and the principles of masculinity God has put forth. I have found them immensely helpful in my own personal life, and am thoroughly grateful for this guide to young men.

It's Good to Be a Man

Pastor Foster provides insightful commentary on masculinity and the blessings of fulfilling God's design on being a man, effectively combating the weak effeminacy that has gripped much of the modern church.

Best book on leadership I have read

I’ve been a pastor for 42 years and love to read. I’ve read a lot of fine books on leadership over the years but some rise to the top for their exceptional instruction and insight. This book provides greater insight into leading in the present moment than any book I have read. It is full of wisdom. The chapter on leadership in the church is worth the price of the book and a couple of the pages in that chapter are so good they are worth memorizing. A book like this doesn’t come along very often. I’ve recommended it to virtually every pastor I know. I also think wives would benefit immensely from reading it — to know how to encourage their husbands in this vital task of leadership.

Great wisdom nuggets

Our church family is in this borough/kingdom building mindset. So good to have wisdom from those who have gone before. Would enjoy seeing this book developed further.

Absolutely brilliant!

Answers so many questions.

I am so thankful for this book. It answers so many questions that I had with scripture about baptism, and it totally makes sense! I would read certain passages and often gloss over them because I couldn’t explain them. I just figured when we get to heaven we’ll understand. But Pastor Wilson brings clarity and honest wrestling with these passages.
