D. A. Carson's father was a pioneering church-planter and pastor in Quebec. But still, an ordinary pastor-except that he ministered during the decades that brought French Canada from the brutal challenges of persecution and imprisonment for Baptist ministers to spectacular growth and revival in the 1970s. It is a story, and an era, that few in the English-speaking world know anything about. But through Tom Carson's journals and written prayers, and the narrative and historical background supplied by his son, readers will be given a firsthand account of not only this trying time in North American church history, but of one pastor's life and times, dreams and disappointments.

The Pastor Book Description :

In The Pastor, author Eugene Peterson, translator of the multimillion-selling The Message, tells the story of how he started Christ Our King Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, Maryland and his gradual discovery of what it really means to be a pastor. Steering away from abstractions, Peterson challenges conventional wisdom regarding church marketing, mega pastors, and the church’s too-cozy relationship to American glitz and consumerism to present a simple, faith-based description of what being a minister means today. In the end, Peterson discovers that being a pastor boils down to “paying attention and calling attention to ‘what is going on now’ between men and women, with each other and with God.”...

Carson has written widely on the nature of Scripture over the past thirty years, and here presents a timely collection of his work in two parts.

An Undoing Book Description :

We’ve all been through events in which we feel, at least in the moment, that there is no coming back. Maybe it was a severe break-up; a fall from grace as a leader; an occupational dream shattered; a psychological and emotional breakdown; or, as in many western films, you are a leader who has come to the middle of your life, the hopes and expectations you held have crashed around you, and all of a sudden you feel lost. Our brains often translate this as some sort of trauma. On paper, my life looked perfect: married, four kids, house in the downtown area of one of the best cities in the United States, and a vocation that many spend much time and money trying to gain. However, at some point, I lost myself. I got swallowed up in the hype and movement,...

Beyond Ordinary Book Description :

How safe is your marriage? The answer may surprise you. The biggest threat to any marriage isn’t infidelity or miscommunication. The greatest enemy is ordinary. Ordinary marriages lose hope. Ordinary marriages lack vision. Ordinary marriages give in to compromise. Ordinary is the belief that this is as good as it will ever get. And when we begin to settle for ordinary, it’s easy to move from “I do” to “I’m done.” Justin and Trisha Davis know just how dangerous ordinary can be. In this beautifully written book, Justin and Trisha take us inside the slow fade that occurred in their own marriage—each telling the story from their own perspective. Together, they reveal the mistakes they made, the work they avoided, the thoughts and feelings...
