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.

Excellent

Time has flown by, and my firstborn is 4. We have tried lots of things to ignite a passion for reading, and have thrown up our hands… until now. This was well worth the money. My son is now confidently conquering the first set of book, and I can’t wait to see how this continues to blossom.

Thanks to the creators of this set and to Canon Press for connecting us. I will forever be grateful !

Cheers,

Samuel and the Flynn Family.

Great little book

I’ve enjoyed reading this book. The service and shipping is excellent as always

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

Revealing and Convicting

"Buy truth, and sell it not." That is what comes to mind with this book. The truth contained inside this short work is potent, clear, and eminently practical. Hold fast to the realities within and you will find your world strengthened and your spine stiffened.

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

God knew I needed this book

This book came out at the same time a situation exploded in my life. It helped me see not only how others had tried to emotionally sabotage me, but also convicted me on how I had allowed myself to compromise in the events leading up to the controversy. Joe Rigney gave me a concise treatment on the biblical view of power dynamics and relationships, and inspired me to practice joyful, sober-minded faithfulness moving forward. Thank you!!

Leadership and emotional sabotage

This book is amazing. It has so much insight on how to lead me family, church, and school in a godly way. I bought 7 copies and I probably need
to buy more because I keep giving them away! Everyone needs a copy!

My daughter loves to pull these books out and start reading them or attempting to read them all by herself. This set of books has made her want to read independently and I also love hearing her laugh at the story lines.

It came as expected and was very well wrapped up and protected.

Not as many questions as usual

This is a good reading guide, but it's only 3 pages, and lasted for 3 days of reading. All the others I've gotten are for chapter books, which are 20+ pages of questions and last for 20+ days of readings.

Simple and Helpful

This book is Biblical, Helpful, Convicting, and Encouraging. A fantastic resource for those who want to fulfill their God-given role in family, business, and community.

Best book I’ve ever read

Can’t put into words how incredible this book is. The encouragement it is to see how God can use a Christian ruler to radically change the direction of an apathetic nation heading towards apostasy. The strategy King Alfred used to redirect England is the same strategy that we must employ. Repent, fight off the pagans, restore right worship, implement Christian education, overhaul the legal system to line up with the general equity of Israel’s civil code.

This book is a must read

The wisdom the world has been lacking

There are many ideas and schemes people have developed regarding leadership. Almost all lack the global biblical grounding this book has. Each page has impactful, solid, and virtuous teaching to help people be the leaders God wants them to be.

Little Book With A Big Punch

"Girly men" have been abandoning their God-given responsibilities over the years. This short book packs a big punch and a call to action in Godly leadership in the home, Church, and in the world. Men need to be men again!

A rare, super useful book: great clarity and thankfully concise. It’s priceless.

An Excellent Classic

This is a very well written classic with great content for children and adults. A charming fairy tale with deeper truths involved. You also can pick up some of the notes that C S Lewis took into his Chronicles of Narnia Series. The Canon edition of this classic has beautiful art and is well formatted.

A Historical Novel With Application Today

This was an enjoyable read. Although written for a younger audience, adults will enjoy it. One note of critique, it would be nice to have a note explaining which characters are historical, and which are fictional, and maybe a short bio on those based on actual people. King Alfred and his brother are historical, but I couldn't find anything on an Ealderman named Edmund. Also, this is about the same point in history that the Turks began to be a problem in Europe. Any correlation?

Absolute gem

A surprisingly great read. Didn't have any expectations going in and was pleasantly surprised, definitely worth a re-read and loved the hardback itself

Must Read for Fathers and Pastors

Christian men are called to be sober-minded. But what does that look like? Joe Rigney helps flesh out that statement, not just hypothetically, but how it looks in your day-to-day life. Men, this book is the encouraging wake-up call you need. Also, buy this for your pastors and elders.

Another way to look at our failure in leadership

A really effective way of explaining men's failure at leadership, how we can look at the issue and how to correct our actions. Very helpful to me.
