A More Christlike God: A More Beautiful Gospel $18.00 — What is God like? A punishing judge? A doting grandfather? A deadbeat dad? A vengeful warrior? ‘Believers’ and atheists alike typically carry and finally reject the toxic images of God in their own hearts and minds. Even the Christian gospel has repeatedly lapsed into a vision of God where the wrathful King must be appeased by his victim Son. How do such ‘good cop/bad cop’ distortions of the divine arise and come to dominate churches and cultures? What if God has always been and forever will be ‘cruciform’ (cross-shaped) in his character and actions?
A More Christlike Way: A More Beautiful Faith $18.00 — In this follow-up book to A More Christlike God, after deconstructing four counterfeit ways, Jersak explores seven facets of the Jesus Way. Christ’s radical revelation of true humanity beckons us, “Would you be human? Take up your cross and follow me.” A More Christlike Way is a book for our time, where so much of what is called Christianity has been hijacked to serve agendas that are decidedly un-Christlike. A More Christlike Way sets forth a vision for following Jesus that is in keeping with the kind of faith that first turned the world upside down two thousand years ago.
A More Christlike Word: Reading Scripture the Emmaus Way $20.00 — The third book in the “More Christlike” series is now available. The Scriptures are an essential aspect of the Christian faith. But we have often equated them with the living Word Himself, even elevating them above the One to whom they point. In doing so, we have distorted their central message—and our view of God. Tragically, this has caused multitudes of people unnecessary doubt, confusion, and pain in their encounters with the Scriptures. Reading scripture the “Emmaus Way” demonstrates how Jesus regarded all Scripture as fulfilled in himself, the final Word of God who reveals the true nature of the Father.

Wonders of His Grace $20.00 — God’s grace is a gift, rather than an achievement – we cannot earn or acquire his grace any more than we can look at the beauty of his creation and claim credit for designing or sustaining it.

A Taste of Grace $10.00 — A Taste of Grace is an easy-to-read page-turning exploration of God’s amazing grace, demonstrated and illustrated by the teachings of Jesus.

Rejecting Religion—Embracing Grace $10.00 — Join Greg Albrecht as he examines what Jesus has to say about the kingdom of religion, through an eye-opening study of Jesus’ sermon in Matthew 23. Jesus uses words like woe, hypocrites, blind, greedy, self-indulgent, unclean, desolate, hell and snakes to describe the religious industry, its professionals and the consequences it brings into the lives of those it “serves.” But the kingdom of heaven, in stark contrast to the oppressive kingdom of religion, is a spiritual dimension of freedom and peace. Rejecting Religion—Embracing Grace affirms the ultimate victory of God’s grace—even as the relentless waves of his grace will eventually erode and cover the shifting sands of religion like the waters cover the sea.

The Remnant II $10.00 — The year is 2145, and planet Earth seems destined for a new era of peace and prosperity under one world government and one world religion. But utopia is illusory, as Church Patriarch and Matriarch Grant and Dana Cochrin are about to discover. They will be blindsided by an iron-fisted dictator and a mesmerizing religious leader, who will conspire to plunge the globe into a totalitarian hell of enslavement, ethnic cleansing, terror and death.
But not everyone has been deceived. An intrepid band of insurgents is working to take back the planet for faith and freedom. Can the world be rescued from the insanity of toxic religion before it’s too late? This spellbinding story raises urgent questions about church and state—and cherished religious institutions in general.
The Remnant I $10.00 — In the year 2069 the Apocalypse came and went, but Jesus didn’t show up, as some expected. Instead, a cataclysmic war, natural disasters and pandemics cut earth’s population by 90 percent. Now, in 2131, a totalitarian government rules the world from the magnificent capitol of Carthage, Tunisia. Blamed for igniting the war, all religion and religious books have been banned. Citizens who practice religion are sent to work camps. Grant Cochrin, imprisoned in a bleak petroleum camp in North Dakota, hears rumors of isolated Christian communities in the lawless Wilderness areas of North America. Grant leads his family and friends in a daring escape from their work camp to embark on a long and dangerous quest for a utopian Christian community. The main guide in their search is a single Bible page—a remnant of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount handed down from Grant’s grandparents.
Chasing 120—A Story of Food, Faith, Fraud and the Pursuit of Longevity $10.00 — While some may have differing opinions regarding whether they would want to live to be 120 years old.
