This excellent book is so important. It clearly and powerfully explains what the parallels are between Germany's fall from grace and the beginning of our own fall. - Eric Metaxas, author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy
In When A Nation Forgets God, Erwin Lutzer studies seven similarities between Nazi Germany and America today—some of them chilling—and cautions us to respond accordingly. Engaging, well-researched, and easy to understand, Lutzer’s writing is that of a realist, one alarmed but unafraid. Amidst describing the messes of our nation’s government, economy, legal pitfalls, propaganda, and more, Lutzer points to the God who always has a plan.
At the beginning of the twentieth Century, Nazi Germany didn’t look like a country on the brink of world-shaking terrors. It looked like America today. When a Nation Forgets God uses history to warn us of a future that none of us wants to see. It urges us to be ordinary heroes who speak up and take action.
Instead of an Anxious Parent, Become a Praying Parent
Any Christian mother and father, or grandmother and grandfather, desires what is spiritually best for their children. However, knowing how to pray for them can often be as challenging as knowing what to pray. Without proper guidance, our prayers are prone to become dry, repetitive lists of requests.
With the help of Dr. Erwin Lutzer, you can learn how your best, loving intentions can become enriching, effective intercessions for your children or grandchildren. Trade your lists of requests for Scripturally-based prayers that will immerse you in God’s promises and will. In A Practical Guide for Praying Parents, Dr. Lutzer addresses:
-How to pray when children have hardened hearts
-How to pray for children who have become wayward prodigals
-How to become a prayer warrior who prays in the face of spiritual warfare
This small guide will help you pray scriptural prayers that both bring you closer to God and bless your children. You’ll also find daily Biblical prayers crafted by Dr. Lutzer himself to help you begin your prayer journey. With your love for your children, your desire to help, and Dr. Lutzer’s guidance, your prayers can become effective ministry in the lives of those you care for the most.
How do we live faithfully in a country becoming more and more hostile to our faith in Christ?
Like the Israelites in Babylon, we must find a way to maintain our faith in the midst of a pagan culture. But that requires we answer two crucial questions:
- How did we get here?
- How do we prepare for the dark and difficult days ahead?
In The Church in Babylon, Dr. Lutzer answers both of these questions. He will walk you through the many parallels between the church in America and God’s people in Babylon, and embolden you to be a gospel witness. You’ll be encouraged not to compromise your faith even when under constant pressure from all corners of society. And more than all this you will have a fresh encounter with Jesus Christ, as you consider the biblical role of those in exile.
"One minute after you die you will either be elated or terrified. And it will be too late to reroute your travel plans."
Death comes to all, and yet death is not the end. For some, death is the beginning of unending bliss, for others, unending despair. In this latest edition of the bestselling book One Minute After You Die, Pastor Erwin W. Lutzer weighs the Bible’s words on life after death. He considers:
- Channeling, reincarnation, and near-death experiences
- What heaven and hell will be like
- The justice of eternal punishment
- Trusting in God’s providence
- Preparing for your own final moment
Though the afterlife is shrouded in mystery, the Bible does peel back the curtain. Dr. Lutzer will help you understand what is on the other side.
May the reality of eternity quicken and comfort you today.
To their own detriment, many Christians have emptied the judgment seat of Christ of its meaning, living like they will never meet His knowing gaze. For this they may have tears in heaven.
In this provocative book, Dr. Erwin Lutzer argues that remorse in heaven awaits those who don’t live fully for God on earth. Exploring the often-overlooked Scriptures about reward and judgment for Christians, Dr. Lutzer answers questions like:
- How will believers be judged?
- Do rewards for faithfulness vary?
- If heaven is perfect, why do rewards even matter?
His answers are immensely practical. Your Eternal Reward will prompt you to live more faithfully, whether in your conduct, your speech, or even your use of money, that you might enjoy heaven all the more.
What is sown on earth is reaped in heaven, and Dr. Lutzer will have you taking this truth to heart.
remains a stunning chapter in the pages of history. Although the power by which
he hypnotized an entire nation is legendary, one question in particular begs an
answer: Where was the church of Christ? Seduced by the Satanic majesty of The Fuhrer,
church leaders throughout Germany allowed the Swastika a prominent place alongside
the Christian cross in their sanctuaries. Nationalistic pride replaced the call
of God to purity, and with few exceptions, the German church looked away while Adolph
Hitler implemented his 'Final Solution' to his Jewish problem. How did this happen?
In Hitler's Cross, Erwin W. Lutzer examines the lessons that may be learned
from studying the deception of the church: the dangers of confusing "church and
state," how the church lost its focus, the role of God in human tragedy, the parameters
of Satan's freedom, the truth behind Hitler's hatred of the Jews, the faithfulness
of God to His people who suffer for Him, the comparisons between Hitler's rise and
the coming reign of the Antichrist, and America's hidden cross-her dangerous trends.
Hitler's Cross is the story of a nation whose church forgot its primary
call and discovered its failure too late.
The story of Nazi Germany is one of conflict between two saviors and two crosses.
“Deine Reich komme,” Hitler prayed publicly—“Thy Kingdom come.” But to whose kingdom was he referring?
When Germany truly needed a savior, Adolf Hitler falsely assumed the role. He directed his countrymen to a cross, but he bent and hammered the true cross into a horrific substitute: a swastika.
Where was the church through all of this? With a few exceptions, the German church looked away while Hitler inflicted his “Final Solution” upon the Jews. Hitler’s Cross is a chilling historical account of what happens when evil meets a silent, shrinking church, and an intriguing and convicting exposé of modern America’s own hidden crosses.
Erwin W. Lutzer extracts a number of lessons from this dark chapter in world history, such as:
- The dangers of confusing church and state
- The role of God in human tragedy
- The parameters of Satan's freedom
Begin to explore the end.
The end is near. While these often sound like words of insane rambling, they can also be a sensible presentation of truth. Acknowledging that what is yet to come is beyond the scope of our wildest projections, pastor and scholar Erwin Lutzer reminds us that we have not been left completely in the dark. There is much we can know.
Within this book are ten events we can be certain of, ten events that will change our future forever. You will be encouraged to renew your expectation of the return of the Messiah and, in so doing, be motivated to live pure lives for Him.
The King is Coming has been written precisely to aid your own exploration of biblical prophecies with sound, sensible, balanced perspectives based on the simple meaning of the biblical texts. Saturated with both humility and a sense of urgency, this book not only provides answers for those questioning what comes next, but also empowerment and instruction to live accordingly in the here and now.
Where is God When We Suffer?
God’s silence in the midst of human suffering is a great mystery of our existence. Faced with mass suffering, such as pandemics, plagues, and natural disasters, we may wonder whether God actually cares about us or whether He just says that He does.
Pandemics, Plagues, and Natural Disasters: What is God Saying to Us? helps explain the role of God in suffering. Dr. Erwin Lutzer examines how God uses tragedies throughout the Bible to speak to His people, and that, ultimately, God always has our wellbeing in mind even when He doesn’t relieve our immediate pain. Perhaps most importantly, find lasting joy and relief by learning how times of such widespread trouble reveal God’s ultimate plans for our salvation from all temporary and eternal suffering.
"Be wrong about social security, be wrong about baseball, be wrong about your career choice, but don’t be wrong about where you will spend eternity."
How You Can Be Sure You Will Spend Eternity with God—it’s a big promise, but this short book delivers. It answers a host of questions, such as:
- Will good deeds help me get into heaven?
- Who goes to heaven and who doesn’t?
- What role do I have in my own salvation?
- Can I lose my salvation if I commit a serious sin?
- Is it wrong to doubt my salvation, and what should I do if I doubt?
Dr. Lutzer takes many scriptural teachings and siphons them into clear, cohesive truths. The result is a concise, accessible book about how to be saved and be sure you are saved. It is straight gospel—applicable to the skeptic, newly saved, and long-time believer alike.
“This book is a treasure of biblical wisdom . . .” —Dr. R. C. Sproul, founder, Ligonier Ministries
Can I judge without being judgmental?
We live in a world that tolerates everything but judgment. What we don’t realize is that right judgment is the key to right living. Who Are You To Judge? is Lutzer’s word to a culture that hates being told how to live and to a church called to purity.
After explaining the difference between judging and being judgmental, Lutzer guides Christians in discerning various critical issues, including miracles, matters of doctrine, and godly engagement with entertainment and culture.
With a passion for biblical truth and intolerance for lies, Lutzer is compelling and gut-honest. Who Are You to Judge? calls us to not only embrace the truth, but also to live according to it, speaking the truth in love to a world so desperately in need of both.
