Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes

Biblical scholars Brandon O'Brien and Randy Richards shed light on the ways that Western readers often misunderstand the cultural dynamics of the Bible. Drawing on their own cross-cultural experience in global missions, O'Brien and Richards show how better self-awareness and understanding of cultural differences in language, time and social mores allow us to see the Bible in fresh and unexpected ways.

Transforming Prayer

Learn the difference between seeking what God provides and seeking who He is in prayer.

The Meaning of Marriage

Incredibly rich with wisdom and insight that will leave the reader, whether single or married, feeling uplifted.

Trusting God
