Nurturing the Nations: Reclaiming the Dignity of Women in Building Healthy Cultures
Our world is filled with nations that are impoverished largely because half of their people―the female population―are disenfranchised. But this is not just a book about women; it is a book that deals with the intersection of three seemingly very different subjects: women, poverty and world view. Nurturing the Nations explains how the ideas that societies embrace create healthy or impoverished cultures and supports that theory with information regarding domestic violence, murder and pornography. The book addresses one of the greatest causes of worldwide poverty, the lie that men are superior to women. Order this book
Recovering Our Mission
Jesus commanded his followers to make disciples of all nations. This Great Commission is central to the existence of the church in every generation. Why? Because if the church doesn’t disciple the nation, the nation will disciple the church. We must leave behind the incomplete vision of “saving souls for heaven” and take up the commission of discipling individuals and communities toward a reflection of the truth, goodness and beauty of God’s kingdom. This books provides a theological and practical foundation for this most important of pursuits. Order this book
The Forest in the Seed
- What resources do we truly need for Christian community development?
- Where do these resources come from?
The transformation of impoverished communities requires resources, yet our worldview determines our vision for what resources we have and which are most important. The Bible reveals God as the source of all resources. He is “Jehova Jireh,” the God who provides for His creation. But do we have eyes to see this vast array of resources? Do our development activities help others discover their God-given resources or hinder them? The Forest in the Seed is a Biblical exploration of the important topic of resources.

In his kingdom, “the greatest” is the one who serves the most! When Christ’s followers understand and embrace a lifestyle of humble service, the impact in their lives, families, communities, and nations is nothing short of revolutionary.

Mixing God with Money
Jesus talked more about money than about heaven and hell combined. We must “mix God with money” if we are going to live out God’s purposes fully during our time here in this world. Unfortunately, many of the books from the West fail to take into consideration the chaotic economies of the Third World. The material in this book grew out of the interactions at seminars held with fellow African believers on the continent as they sought to make the teaching of the Bible relevant to their context.
