Journey with Jesus: A Spiritual Pilgrimage through the Psalms of Ascent

Growing numbers of Muslims worldwide have left Islam to embark on a journey with the Lord Jesus Christ. This booklet provides a resource for these new Christians, as well as for those discipling them. Journey with Jesus is a Bible study through Psalms 120 – 134. These fifteen psalms were traditionally sung by Old Testament worshippers as they made pilgrimages to the Temple in Jerusalem. Written by a Muslim-background Christian, this devotional includes insights on pursuing the presence of God with the people of God, overcoming persecution, and growing in grace. Each chapter concludes with discussion questions. Journey with Jesus is ideal for individual or group Bible studies.

Prepare for Persecution: Lessons from Acts

The global church today faces significant challenges, even in lands once renowned for religious freedom. Pastors, leaders, and laypeople must navigate the following questions:

  • How should Christians respond to mandates by governments to close churches or limit attendance?
  • How can believers continue to witness for Christ in this Orwellian age of cancel culture, in which simply stating a biblical position can be deemed “hate speech?”
  • What sources of information are reliable in the face of mounting media dishonesty and anti-Christian propaganda?
  • When should Christians risk going to jail for what they believe?

Like the warning on some airplanes goes, “Your nearest way of escape may be behind you.” Beyond simply pointing a way of escape, Prepare for Persecution: Lessons from Acts guides today’s believers through the example of Jesus’ disciples. The early church overcame persecution again and again in the pages of the Acts of the Apostles—witnessing as they went, in the comfort and power of the Holy Spirit. This book chronicles nine key storylines of Acts. Each chapter concludes with “Applications for the Church Today,” and “For Further Discussion,” making them ideal for weekly Bible studies.
