Love the Ones Who Drive You Crazy: Eight Truths for Pursuing Unity in Your Church by Jamie Dunlop (Crossway)

Churches are full of differences. Yet if a church is centered on Christ alone, then unity at church will sometimes mean building genuine friendships with those who are different. How can Christians navigate those relationships? Can they really love people at church who sometimes drive them crazy? This practical guide explores 8 truths from Romans 12–15 that show us how to find God-exalting unity at church with those we struggle to love.


The Pilgrim’s Regress: Guarding Against Backsliding and Apostasy in the Christian Life by Mark Jones (P&R)

Does God Care about Gender Identity? by Samuel D. Ferguson (TGC/Crossway)

In this concise booklet, Samuel Ferguson carefully and compassionately compares the core beliefs and practices of the transgender movement with fundamental truths expressed in Scripture. Ferguson argues human identity is not determined by the individual but is given to us by our Creator, who designed our bodies and minds with purpose and encourages us to live in Christlikeness. It’s part of the Hard Questions series, which equips readers with answers to difficult questions facing the modern church. 


The Inner Life: Its Nature, Relapse, and Recovery by Octavius Winslow (Reformation Heritage)

Jesus, the Good Shepherd, grants eternal life to His sheep—not just a life reserved for the future but one that starts in the life we have now. But how are we to understand this supernatural gift? What does it look like as Christ accomplishes his good work within us? In The Inner Life, Octavious Winslow examines what it means for believers to have the spiritual power of Christ living in them. After looking at how the Spirit of Christ lives in His disciples, Winslow carefully explains how our spiritual life is assaulted, struggles, and regains strength as we travel a difficult but blessed road to our heavenly rest.
