The Explicit Gospel Matt Chandler Hardcover, 240 pp., $17.99 Crossway (March 20, 2012)
You know you know it… but then again, maybe you don’t. Just because you go to church, used to go to church, or spend all your time at church, doesn’t mean you really get the gospel—at least not in all its fullness and specificity. Inspired by the needs of both the overchurched and the unchurched, popular pastor Matt Chandler shows that the gospel has implications for more than just conversion as it comes to bear on the cosmos, our every day lives, and the full scope of redemptive history.
Altar’d Jennifer Kennedy Dean Paperback, 208 pp., $14.99 New Hope Publishers (January 15, 2012)
We are created to live in an altar’d state—surrendered, yielded, free.

Through careful exposition and biblical teaching, celebrated author and prayer expert Jennifer Kennedy Dean guides readers on a 40-day exploration of the Scriptures and what it means to truly live a life dead to flesh and alive to the spirit.
