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.

Look Inside the Book or Listen on Canon+

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.

Great illustrations

Animals are very cute, actions and responses fun with a black sheep in the mix. Grandson will love it and read it many times.

Bought them early for our toddler— can wait to teach her to read through Great Aunt Jan’s wonderful stories%21

We love the original (didn’t know how valuable it was) and love reading this new one to our toddler!

Super cool!

Great story and illustrations! My grandson loves this book!

I like the difference in thought that it presents.

Never received the book, but I’m excited about reading it! So my rating is anticipatory.🤷‍♀️

I’ve ordered it a second time now, because even though I got a shipping and delivery confirmation from both Canon Press and the Postal Service, my book was never delivered. The Postal Service has since closed my report and I never heard back from Canon Press. But I’m excited enough about the book to order it again!

Love it!

My daughter loves this book so much. She wants to read it at least once everyday. Highly recommended.

Love it!

My son asked me to read him this book all the time. Great book for the kids. Such a beautifully illustrated book.

Great message!

Our grandsons really like the book and illustrations. The 3 and 6 year old keep asking pop pop to read it!
We are wondering what messages you are trying to convey.
Thanks and God bless!

Powerful message, explained simply.

The fun story, and the wonderful illustrations make it easy for even the youngest minds to absorb this important truth. A great countercultural message, delivered efficiently and brilliantly. We need many more of these types of books.

Lovely book!!

This book is comical and great for kids of all ages!! Highly recommend!!

Wonderful!

I devoured this book in one sitting, taking four hours! It was so great! It reminded me of The Giver, but it definitely has its own story, voice, and characters. I cannot stop recommending it everywhere I go. I laughed out loud, bit my fingernails to pieces, and almost cried (once). The ending left me stunned and so happy. I hope to find more books as wonderful as this one. Thank you, Gwen Newel and Canon Press!

Jah, Ufda!

Aside from a couple superfluous passages, a very engaging novel. Fully recommended.

Led to a Breakthrough

This book is so powerful because contentment is so powerful. I had been struggling with some relationship issues for about a year when I found this book. I read it three times, then read it to my husband and my kids and gave it to my best friend. God used the wisdom in this book, which comes from His Word, and set me free from the prison of discontentment. Now I am more joyful, peaceful and loving than I have ever been. I am looking at my circumstances as God’s all-wise and loving will for me. I am gladly surrendering the hardest things in my life to Him. So thankful for this book.

A great read, but flawed theology.

This was a very interesting read and I had a hard time putting it down, but unfortunately this book falls into the same rut of all Paedobaptist works; the absolute failure to honestly address Jeremiah 31:31-34. Longshore copped out in The Case for the Christian Family and said that the plain reading of the text puts too much on the back of Jeremiah and that it's all hyperbole. Doug in Standing on the Promises does a hit and run on the passage, but only a small portion of it. And in this book he only mentions it in passing and then calls that thinking "wrong-headed." I absolutely love Doug and Canon Press and have been greatly blessed by the works put out! I've read a plethora of the books and continue to do so, because it's changed the way that I and my family think and live for Christ. But I have to say, them not dealing with the text with integrity is the proverbial fly in the ointment for the Paedobaptist community. Either you guys need to publish something that truly and thoroughly exegetes the passage, showing how it in fact is harmonious with your theology, or otherwise you gotta stop dunking babies. Love you guys and God bless!

We love this book! Such a cute story to teach children it’s great to be different. Our little one dances to the beat of his own drum and we want him to learn that it is ok when all of that energy is used for the glory of God. This book teaches how our differences are all vital in serving others!

Wow. This book was so good — I couldn’t put it down! It was a very inspiring book to stand for what God says is right, good, beautiful, and true, no matter the cost — even if it means death.

Such a great book!

My kids (2, 4 & 7) all love this book!! Highly recommend!

very good

I gave it first to my fourteen year old granddaughter. She is very picky in her reading material. But she enjoyed the book and tried to see if she had written other books. I also enjoyed the book.

Funny, sweet, encouraging

I have a little boy who is not dissimilar to the Blah Blah Black Sheep, and it warmed my heart to read this book (to myself and to him!). God has placed such good gifts in and on His children and sometimes they don’t look that way to us if the packaging is wild and intense. I trust God will use my little sheep’s life to His glory even (especially?!) in the times that have me wondering what is going on in this little one’s head 😉

Highly Recommended Book

George Gilder is a rare breed. A little too rare. We need more men like him and thats a great reason for men to read this book. In a country that is trying to erase sexual design and merge the sexes we need young God-Fearing families again led by young men with mouths to feed.

GREAT BOOK FOR ADULT AND YOUNG MINDS

I like this book, and gave it to a family in Church who have 2 young boys. We always need good literature for children. It reminded me that I need to order some more copies of Hello Ninja.
