Greetings!

Dear Faith Alive Customer, greetings! We are excited to bring you our 2012 complete resource catalog, and want you to know that we’re here to serve you as you make plans for the 2012-13 church year. If you’re looking for a sunday school or intergenerational curriculum this year, we have four excellent options to fit your church: • • • DWELL: our newest children’s ministry curriculum helps kids see the Bible as god’s big unfolding story and discover their place in it (see p. 4). WALK WITH ME: helps kids learn to know god, grow in faith, and show god’s love to others (see p. 10). KID CONNECTION: great for churches of all sizes but designed with smaller churches and church plants in mind, KC is easy to teach, biblical, great for outreach, and budget-friendly (see p. 16). WE: an innovative new intergenerational program that brings your whole church—from preschoolers through senior citizens—together around god’s Word (see p. 18).

We’re also very excited to feature two amazing new worship resources: • Psalms for All Seasons: the largest collection of psalms for worship ever published! Includes all 150 psalms, most in multiple formats, and a wide variety of musical and spoken settings. It’s a must-have resource for worship leaders and musicians. see page 68 for more information. Lift Up Your Hearts: this new hymnal, scheduled for release in 2013, is available for preorder now. It includes music ranging from the traditional hymn repertoire to contemporary worship music, and from Western music to the music of the global church. see page 69 for details and special preorder discounts.

Theology Matters
theology matters—even for 5-year-olds. Choosing a Reformed curriculum can make a huge difference in how your children will come to know god and god’s Word. Many curriculums present the Bible as a collection of stories that teach moral virtues and showcase a variety of biblical heroes. they use Abraham to teach obedience, Hannah to teach trust, and Joseph to teach perseverance. Reformed curriculums view the Bible not as a collection of stories but as one story—the story of how god redeems and restores the world through Jesus. the main character and focus of that story is not a moral or a hero—but god. It’s a story that began in eden and continues in our lives today. Whether you’re 3 or 103, the story shapes how you know god—and how you know yourself.

DWELL
Age Level: Kindergarten to grade 8

Walk With Me
Age Level: Preschool to grade 8 Walk With Me curriculum encourages children and their leaders to grow in faith together. they dive into the stories of scripture with greater depth every year, emphasizing that faith is not just about what we know and believe—it’s also about how we live every day. At the middle school level young teens explore Christian living, Christian doctrine, and belonging to the Church. WalkWithMeOnline.org

Dwell curriculum awakens kids’ imaginations to the ongoing story of god that starts in the pages of scripture and continues in our lives today. Kids, young teens, and their leaders grow in faith as they explore each story and retell it together. At the middle school level young teens discover how Reformed/Presbyterian doctrine grows out of the narrative of scripture.

DWELL Story Symbols
every story in Dwell has a story symbol—a simple visual reminder of the story for kids and their families. In fact, if you laid all of them out together, you’d have a wonderful picture timeline of god’s big story! the symbols are used in different ways in Dwell: sometimes we may hold them up for kids to wonder about before we tell the story, sometimes they are used as the story is told. But each week the symbol is displayed in some way in the room, and it appears on every take-home paper or other item the children receive. the story symbols also help children understand that all the different stories they’ve been exploring are part of oNe big story that tells us about god, god’s loving plan for the world, and our role in god’s plan!

Retell: Spread a blanket on the floor for a picnic snack. (Use real food or pretend!) Tell each other what surprised you in this story. Wonder: Have you ever had to wait a long time for a special day to arrive? How did you feel? Do you think Abraham and Sarah felt like that Genesis 24:1-7 , as they waited for God’s promise to come true? 10-38, 50-5 1, 61-67 Pray: God came to Abraham and Sarah’s home for dinner. We can’t see God like Abraham and Sarah did, but we can talk to God in our prayers. Think of something you’d like to tell God, then join hands and take turns telling God that thing. Praise: God always keeps promises. High five each other and shout “Yay, God!” Share: Isaac means laughter. Why do you think Abraham and Sarah chose that name for their baby boy? What do your names mean? Why were they chosen? Respond: Look for stars in the sky before you go to bed tonight. As you do, name a way God has blessed your family. Then thank God.

DWELLSongs
For grades K-5, we’ve provided great music that enhances the Dwell approach to god’s story—including songs written to help kids memorize key scripture passages. singing scripture awakens a different part of the children’s brains, helping them remember specific parts of the story. Families can purchase a CD with all of the songs from DWell to continue the learning at home. or they can download individual songs (including Memory Challenge scripture songs).
Year 1 (2 CD Set) 037010 $14.99US/$CAN* ISBN 9781592556755 Year 2 (2 CD Set) 037015 $14.99US/$CAN* ISBN 9781592556762 DwellSongs are also available by download from iTunes to make it easy for churches and parents to access and use.

• The set includes 165 cards and a fun, color-coded die. • On the front of each card is one of the story symbols and the Scripture passage where the story is found.

• On the back of each card are 5 simple, doable, and fun activities that help families respond to the story. they include: Pray, Praise, Re-tell, Wonder, share, and Respond. Families can use these in a few different ways.
• They may want to use the cards that match the stories their children are learning at church. In that case they can invite their child to find the card with the symbol that matches the one on their take-home paper.

• Or, they might opt to work their way through the whole narrative of scripture by moving from the front to the back of the box.

Finding Your Story in the Psalms
Kevin adams Sung, whispered, shouted, and groaned by Muslims and Jews, Protestants and Catholics, Bob Marley and J.S. Bach, the psalms express the faith of a thousand generations. People have used psalms to voice their deepest anguish and delight, to comfort others, to express emotions they hardly dare to admit. In this book Adams shares stories of unlikely psalm pray-ers and unpredictable God, opening up the honest and earthy world of the psalms in new and unexpected ways. And he invites us to find our own story within that community of faith.

The Day Metallica Came to Church
Searching for the Everywhere God in Everything
John van Sloten What do the music of Metallica and J.S. Bach, the film crash, and stories about Batman have in common? According to author and pastor John Van Sloten, God can speak through all of them— if we’re listening. Drawing from his own often startling and sometimes wrenching journey of discovery, Van Sloten shows how God can speak to us through anything and everything—heavy metal music, R-rated films, sports, and even the latest fashions.

Scriptures are filled with God working in unlikely and scandalous ways, through brothel owners and adulterous kings and reborn terrorists. And just as the Scripture says the rocks can cry out, John Van Sloten reminds us that so can the rock stars. May we find something of God in these pages that can help us love better . . . and change the world.” —Shane Claiborne, author of The Irresistible Revolution; freelance troublemaker and instigator of holy mischief; thesimpleway.org

“Kevin Adams sees the powerful, unrivalled way in which the psalms speak out transformatively, one poem at a time, one person at a time, one crisis at a time, one elation at a time. Readers will find Adams bringing these poems to their lives as well, mediating our pain to God and our hope from God. The book is a gift that keeps on giving . . . as long as the poetry lasts.” —Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary

The Healing Power of Forgiveness
David Snapper We all know we should forgive others, because Christ commands us to. But we often feel helpless when the hurts seems too big, or we just don’t know where to start. This practical, biblical video workshop for small groups was developed over ten years by pastor David Snapper, who has facilitated it in many churches and organizations. In four sessions, Snapper leads your group step by step through the process of forgiving. Video segments are followed by both group discussion and individual work. The leader guide contains helps for adapting the workshop to a six-session format or a retreat setting. Each small group member should have a participant’s workbook.

Earthwise
A Guide to Hopeful Creation Care
Calvin B. DeWitt Earthwise is about living in harmony with the natural world around us—and sharing the joy of this living. Sadly, our ways of life in today’s global economy have led to increasing land and habitat destruction, pollution, species extinction, buildup of “greenhouse gases,” and other degradations of the earth. But rather than grovel and wring our hands in despair, lifelong creation care scientist Calvin B. DeWitt suggests we discover a joyful, positive attitude about working together for good in this world. Looking forward in hope, we can make changes and take positive, lasting action that is more in harmony with the way the world works and is meant to be. This book, now in its third edition, helps to provide us and our friends, neighbors, coworkers, and fellow citizens with practical information and ideas to become truly “earthwise.” RW 151167 $14.99US/$CDN ISBN 9781592556724 eBook, ePub 151168 $7.49US/$CDN* ISBN 9781592556991 eBook, Mobipocket 151169 $7.49US/$CDN* ISBN 9781592557004

Origins
Deborah B. Haarsma and Loren Haarsma When it comes to the history of the universe, many believe that science and faith are mutually exclusive. But in this revised edition of Origins, physics professors Deborah and Loren Haarsma explore what God’s Word and God’s world teach us about creation, evolution, and intelligent design. Clearly explaining the science, the authors focus on areas where Christians agree. They also present the strengths and weaknesses of areas where Christians differ. Origins helps you develop a deeper understanding of the origins of the universe and sort out your own views on faith and science. Small group discussion questions follow each chapter.

Don’t Invite Them to Church:
Moving from a Come and See to a Go and Be Church

It includes ideas for group meetings, practices to help you develop a better spiritual life, and reallife ideas for reaching out to your neighborhood.

But did you ever wonder how your life story connects with the story of the Bible? Find out with this new study.

Seeking God’s Face
Praying with the Bible Through the Year
Written and compiled by Philip F. reinders For hundreds of years, Christians have observed the “daily office”—prayers offered to God at regular times of the day. This practice, now experiencing a wide resurgence, can help your prayer life become a vital, lifelong conversation with God. Seeking God’s Face provides a simplified daily office—intended for once-aday use—designed especially for thoughtful Christians. Inside you’ll find an entire year of daily prayers and readings, each featuring seven elements, including • an opening prayer • a psalm and Scripture reading • suggestions for personal prayer • a prayer based on a classic creed or confession • a closing blessing From the foreword by Eugene H. Peterson: “Seeking God’s Face melds prayer and Scripture into a companionable guide for becoming a participant—both listening and speaking—in the great salvation conversation that is the Christian gospel.” A soft leather-look cover and placeholder ribbon make this book a special gift.

“Inspired in every sense of that word and masterfully compiled, Seeking God’s Face is a prayer book always and everywhere to be treasured. From our very beginnings, we have understood that fixed daily prayer is just as necessary to the fully realized Christian life as water and food are to the body’s sustenance. The problem for many Christians—and especially those from Reformed branches of the faith— has been the lack of prayer tools and prayer books that accord with their communal traditions. Now in this one volume, Philip Reinders gives the Church not only a solution to that problem but also a God-drenched prayer tool suitable for all of us.” —Phyllis Tickle, Compiler, The Divine Hours and The Words of Jesus—A Gospel of the Sayings of Our Lord

An Evangelical Pilgrimage to World Christianity
Wesley Granberg-Michaelson From Billy Graham to a Trappist monastery, from Capitol Hill to the helm of the Reformed Church in America, Wesley Granberg-Michaelson’s personal pilgrimage has covered the length and breadth of Christianity in America. Now, drawing upon forty years of his own spiritual journals, he crystallizes his wide-ranging experiences into a sharp, lively memoir.
