New Books and Bibles

Below is a list of the new and notable resources releasing this month from Crossway. Titles include Five Lies of Our Anti-Chrisitan Age by Rosaria Butterfield and Ditigal Liturgies by Samuel James.

Five Lies of Our Anti-Christian Age

Rosaria Butterfield

In this powerful book, Rosaria Butterfield uses Scripture to confront 5 common lies about sexuality, faith, feminism, gender roles, and modesty often promoted in our secular culture today. Written in the style of a memoir, this book explores Butterfield’s personal battle with these lies—interwoven with cultural studies, literary criticism, and theology—to help readers see the beauty in biblical womanhood, marriage, and motherhood.

“The world is always trying to replace Christianity with a spiritual counterfeit that is another religion entirely, as J. Gresham Machen pointed out a century ago. Rosaria Butterfield exposes today’s ideologies that seek to force the church into the mold of sexual perversion and self-deification. And she reminds us in this well-written and easy-to-read book that the answer to these soul-destroying lies remains the same as it always was: knowing and abiding in God’s word so that the truth will set us free. Highly recommended!”
Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

Five Lies of Our Anti-Christian Age Study Guide

Rosaria Butterfield

In her powerful book Five Lies of Our Anti-Christian Age, Rosaria Butterfield uses Scripture to challenge 5 common lies about sexuality, faith, feminism, gender roles, and modesty that are often promoted in our secular culture today. This study guide, designed to be used alongside the book, invites individuals and groups to dive deeper into the key points of each chapter. Featuring chapter summaries, engaging questions, and Bible verses for further reading, the Five Lies of Our Anti-Christian Age Study Guide inspires women to preserve godly values around womanhood and offers guidance as they shepherd the next generation.

“As I read this cogent, trenchant, and timely declaration of gospel sanity, I was constantly reminded of the words of Christ: ‘You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free’ (John 8:32). Rosaria Butterfield has afforded us a much-needed caveat to the prevailing untruths of our day while simultaneously redirecting us to the pathway of freedom.”
George Grant, Pastor, Parish Presbyterian Church, Franklin, Tennessee; author, The Micah Mandate

Remaking the World: How 1776 Created the Post-Christian West

Andrew Wilson

In Remaking the World, Andrew Wilson highlights 7 major developments from the year 1776—globalization, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, the Great Enrichment, the American Revolution, the rise of post-Christianity, and the dawn of Romanticism—and explains their relevance to social changes happening today. Carefully examining key documents and historical figures, Wilson demonstrates how a monumental number of political, philosophical, economic, and industrial changes in the year of America’s founding shaped the modern West into a “WEIRDER” society: Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, Democratic, Ex-Christian, and Romantic. This thoroughly researched yet accessible book offers a unique historical perspective on modern views of family, government, religion, and morality—giving Christians the historical lens they need to understand today’s post-Christian trends and respond accordingly.

“Andrew Wilson is a wise and witty guide through the eventful year 1776 (eventful in, as he shows, sometimes surprising ways). He convincingly demonstrates that we’re still living in the wake of that historical moment—and offers shrewd suggestions for how Christians might navigate those rough waters.”
Alan Jacobs, Distinguished Professor of Humanities, Baylor University

Digital Liturgies: Rediscovering Christian Wisdom in an Online Age

Samuel D. James

In Digital Liturgies, tech-realist Samuel D. James examines the connection between patterns in technology and human desires. Everyone longs for a glimpse of heaven; James argues they are just looking for it in the wrong place—the internet. This accessible book exposes 5 “digital liturgies” that prohibit people from contemplating big truths, accepting the uncomfortable, and acknowledging God as their Creator. It then calls readers to live faithfully before Christ, finding wisdom through Scripture and rest in God’s perfect design.

“This is such a wise and insightful book. Its power lies in the way it exposes truths not just about the digital world but about us: the things we want, the way we try to find them, how the internet weaponizes them in ways we may not have noticed, and what we can do about it. Penetrating without being frightening, and positive without being naïve, Digital Liturgies is the guide we need.”
Andrew Wilson, Teaching Pastor, King’s Church London

Through Scripture and many first-hand stories, he presents 5 attributes of positive authority and warns against sinfulness that corrupts leadership. Pointing to Jesus as the ultimate model of good authority, Leeman equips readers to pursue godly influence in their personal and professional lives.

“In a world where authority is constantly being questioned, Jonathan Leeman reminds us to steward our authority for God’s glory. He helpfully examines both good and bad practices and guides us toward better examples of God-given authority.”

Go and Do Likewise: A Call to Follow Jesus in a Life of Mercy and Mission

Amy DiMarcangelo

From a theological perspective, Go and Do Likewise explores God’s grand story of redemption to uncover how ordinary Christians can extend God’s compassion to those in need. Author Amy DiMarcangelo builds on biblical principles and provides discussion questions for everyday application. This practical book encourages believers to joyfully engage in Christ’s mission—relying on the gospel to spur mercy, justice, and generosity to those who need it most.

“I was challenged by this book in the best ways. Each chapter quickened my heart to Christ’s. Amy DiMarcangelo reminded me of the real words and deeds and calling of my Savior. That alone was so encouraging. But then she showed me how to go and do likewise in my own life and context. This book is both worshipful and practical. It can feel overwhelming to see the needs of the world and not know how to engage. But I ended the book with both the peace of my sovereign Savior and the urgency of his call to go. If you want to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, start here.”

The Lord Bless You and Keep You: The Promise of the Gospel in the Aaronic Blessing

Michael J. Glodo

Faces are often referred to as the window to the soul, displaying emotion and providing relational clarity between individuals. This theme of faces reverberates throughout Scripture, first appearing with Adam and Eve and notably surfacing in the Aaronic benediction in Numbers 6. The Lord Bless You and Keep You explores this benediction to discover the important connection between a person’s face and the face of God—finding that through faces, God shines the light of the gospel upon his people and offers his grace, goodness, and blessing to those who believe in him.

“Deep in the Reformation worship tradition of both Luther and Calvin is the consistent use of the Aaronic blessing. So it is a delight and a privilege to read and recommend Michael Glodo’s book-length treatment of this beautiful and powerful portion of God’s word, deepening our understanding and renewing our use of our Reformed heritage.”
Bryan Chapell, Stated Clerk, Presbyterian Church in America
