Leafwood Publishers – 40% off For our Readers

I am thrilled to let you know what Leafwood is offering Wineskins readers 40% off their orders. This came about because I read Don McLaughlin’s book “Love First” and wanted to get the word out about this book. Leafwood came on to advertise with Wineskins this month and offer the 40% off with the code WS40 at checkout.

What I am hoping is that some Bible class teachers will see this and use this as an opportunity to pick this book up for a Bible class at the discount.

There are a lot of good books, mostly by Restoration Movement authors that may interest you (Don McLaughlin, Chris Altrock, Larry James, Shane Wood, John Alan Turner, Les Ferguson, Martha Singelton, etc). Here is their website – Leafwood Publishers

Recommended Books on How To Better Read the Bible

I love reading books about how to read the Bible. I guess I love that because I love meta-cognition, thinking about how we think about things. There are so many treasures in the scriptures and, as Bobby Valentine has written in the last two articles, the closer we come to understand things about their worldContinue Reading

How to Be the Kind of Person Who is Remembered for Generations

We recognize that church isn’t perfect. We talk about what needs to improve. We talk about what is unhealthy. There are changes that need to take place. I wonder if sometimes that conversation happens far too easily. I wonder if criticism isn’t easier to engage in than constructively working toward something better. Problems are easyContinue Reading

Anxiety is Far Too Common in Ministry. Here is Why and What Can be Done About it

Over half of ministers report suffering from significant anxiety as a result of their ministry. Churches are anxious places. They are anxious places because we are supposed to get everything right and to do something not how it is always done or said creates uncomfortable questions and anxiety that is then, often, transferred to leadershipContinue Reading

Preserving Our Good DNA in Churches of Christ & Six Adjustments For Revival

Are we prime for revival or are we hopelessly stuck in the past? I don’t think God is done with us yet. Even though we are seeing decline pretty much across the board, I am hopeful that God is still going to use Churches of Christ in some meaningful and powerful ways. Not all DNAContinue Reading

What The Motivational Speakers Just Don’t Get

Motivational speakers can be extremely helpful. They can inspire us, get us moving when we struggle to move. But there are some things secular speakers can’t wrap their minds around which are extremely important. They can’t because they aren’t coming at what they do as a Christian, from a Christian worldview. The first is thatContinue Reading

Churches of Christ Need an Aerosmith/Run DMC “Walk This Way” Moment

The iconic “Walk This Way” music video is a parable for a conversation that must go mainstream and I am determined to make that happen. We have to start chipping away at the wall and poking our heads through to hear what is being said on the other side. On one side – mainstream, programmaticContinue Reading

You Are Invited to Renew’s Gathering

The following article is from Renew’s own, Bobby Harrington. I have gotten to know Bobby over the last several months and in many ways he and Renew have been an answer to some of the prayers I have been praying as I have looked for answers on how to learn to better make disciples whoContinue Reading

Review of “Letters to the Church” Chapter 3 – The Order

If church is something designed to glorify God in all the things we do together, it becomes something it was not intended to be once we make it about something it was never intended to be about.
