Marriage in Paradise

Is your marriage hurting? Do you experience constant conflict? Maybe your relationship is in the doldrums, or you would like to improve an already happy marriage? Marriage in Paradise will help you move your marriage closer to the “paradise” God originally intended.

“This book isn’t a theoretical approach to marriage; rather it contains the practical wisdom of almost a half-century of learning and living God’s design for the union of a man and woman. I cannot imagine any marriage that wouldn’t benefit from this book.”

Humility is the one essential virtue that God looks for. But, there is a problem: pride convinces us that we are humble when we are not. Discover why Gospel-Powered Humility was one of World Magazine’s recommended books of the year.

“William Farley’s Gospel-Powered Humility (P&R, 2011) offers a gospel-centered description of the term-‘the capacity to see myself in God’s light, in the context of his holiness and my sinfulness’-and suggests that ‘humility is a prerequisite for conversion.’”

Do disrespectful, uncontrolled children anger you at home, or embarrass you in public? Discover how the application of biblical discipline makes both parenting fun and children happy and secure.

Many books offer parenting advice, some conflicting, some confusing, and others too difficult to apply. Discover why the application of the gospel is the key to successful Christian parenting, and why it produces enduring fruit.

“Gospel-Powered Parenting is a wise, enduring prescription for parenting because it is joyously biblical and comes from a pastor-theologian who has done it as his family wonderfully attests.”
