Nothing in your life is ordinary. Your present world isn’t supposed to be this small. You were made for something much bigger. And no, you don’t have to be an astronaut, or even a Star Wars fan, to live it. Finding God in a Galaxy Far, Far Away is not about space travel, or even a movie. It’s about rediscovering your sense of wonder – something we adults have successfully squelched from our everyday lives. But God never meant it to be that way. Timothy Jones, by way of an astounding, eye-opening study of the spiritual parallels found in the Star Wars saga, will make you a kid again. You’ll be marveling at the mysterious, laughing anew at life’s “coincidences,” and remembering above all the Creator for which you were made.

Has anyone ever told you that some books were cut out of the Bible or that the stories of Jesus in the Gospels can’t be trusted? In this book, dive into the fascinating account of the most amazing and best-preserved book the world has ever seen. Dr. Timothy Paul Jones gives easy-to-understand answers to popular questions about How We Got the Bible.
“What good does it do to say that the words [of the Bible] are inspired by God if most people have absolutely no access to these words, but only to more or less clumsy renderings of these words into a language? … We have only error-ridden copies, and the vast majority of these are centuries removed from the originals.” So contends Bart D. Ehrman in his bestselling Misquoting Jesus. But are things really so bad off? In clear, straightforward prose, Timothy Paul Jones explores and explains the ins and outs of copying the New Testament, why lost Christianities were lost, and why the Christian message still rings true today.
In Perspectives on Family Ministry, Timothy Paul Jones makes the case that every church is called to some form of family ministry—but what he means by “family ministry” isn’t simply one more program to add to an already-packed schedule! According to Jones, the most effective family ministries involve refocusing every church process to engage parents in the process of discipling their children and to draw family members together instead of pulling them apart.
It’s time to open your eyes to the freeing power of authentic grace—grace that releases us from trying to earn God’s favor, grace that enables us to rest in the finished work of Christ, grace that liberates from the tyranny of trying to please others. PROOF stands for planned grace, resurrecting grace, outrageous grace, overcoming grace, and forever grace—the five points of Reformed soteriology, but radically repackaged to reflect the depth and the breadth of God’s sovereign grace. This book offers proof of God’s grace upon which people can stand against the attacks of legalism that have led many of God’s people to lose sight of the freedom and joy of the gospel.

God’s grace—and not our performance—makes us who we are.
