Trouble on the Way$12.00
Persecution in the Christian Life
While most of us have heard about Christians suffering for their faith, we tend to think “persecution” mainly impacts believers in times past or in hostile nations today, far removed from our daily lives. But this eye-opening book describes the various stages of persecution, revealing that persecution is something all followers of the Way can expect to face in this fallen world.
Trouble on the Way will not only help readers recognize persecution in all its forms but enable them to stand firm against it. The book does not promote a “doormat” Christianity but rather asserts quite the opposite – a victorious, resilient faith that not only survives but thrives as it encounters the very gates of hell.
Sharing from his decades of experience with persecuted believers, near and far, author and ministry CEO Floyd Brobbel invites you to:
- Discern God’s purpose for His church in an ungodly world.
- Learn how Christ endured and responded to persecution.
- Discover how His followers, past and present, emulate Christ in His suffering.
- Recognize how persecution seeks to hinder Christian faith and witness.
- Learn how to respond to any persecution you face with confident love.

The Stone Crusher’s DaughterSale!The Implication of Being Made in God’s ImageDavid Lundy“Within the subcontinent of India there are millions who belong to the Dalit cast. These are the untouchables, the sub-humans who have grown up believing that their lives have no value. What happens when they find out that they have been made in the image of God; that they have infinite worth and value? David Lundy tells how this simple doctrine that we have taken for granted in the West is able to transform lives. He also shares how this unique doctrine, specific to the Christian faith, differentiates from other religions and has tremendous impact on how life is lived, viewed and valued.” ~ Rev. Merv Budd, M. Div. (Paperback, 250 pages)
Many Christians sense that an advancing secularism is trying to force upon Canadians a culture in which faith is meant to be private. In Under Siege, Don Hutchinson presents historic, legal, and theological grounds for us not to hide our faith in stained-glass closets, but instead to enter Canada’s contested public space with confidence. Together, as individual Christians, congregations, denominations, and para-congregational ministries, we are the church in Canada. And together, we have the capacity to impact the nation for God, the good of our neighbours, and the good of ourselves.
