proof texts. It has to do with the way we treat peo-

LAW & COVENANT
Of the books Ron Dart has written, Law & Covenant is
perhaps the most important because these two ideas are
fundamental to the message of the Bible. Yet they are
shockingly misunderstood and misapplied. Some take a
literal approach to biblical law and adopt customs that
make no sense in the modern world. Others think that
the Law has become irrelevant or, even worse, it has
been abolished and nailed to the cross.

How is it possible that an infinite God should ever find


himself lonely or wanting anything? What in the world
was He doing when He created this world and put man
on it? What is the purpose for mankind? Is it possible to
understand God? Yes, but only on His own terms, and
only by His own revelation. When we try to go beyond
what He shows Himself to be, we risk creating God in
our own image. But God has not left us in the dark.

The Marriage Bundle - 2 complete sets $22.95


Marriage Has a Price Tag - Is there anything in life more joyful and fulfilling than a hap-
py marriage? Marriage is a God-ordained union and right now our society seems obsessed with
perverting this beautiful relationship. You need to understand why marriage matters and what
the price tag is for having a good one. Putting forth the effort to have a great marriage pays big
dividends. It’s essential to having happy, well adjusted children. This set contains ten Born to Win
programs on five CDs. Retail price $24.95
Marriage and Family - Single or married, each of these compelling messages is essential
for understanding today’s world and knowing how to cope with it. Charles Murray, American
Enterprise Institute scholar and author of “Losing Ground” says, “Illegitimacy is the single
most important social problem of our time; more important than crime, drugs, poverty, illit-
eracy, welfare or homelessness because it drives everything else.” To help reshape the world,
you need to hear these eight Born to Win programs: Love & Marriage, Love & Sex, A Mother
to Remember, A Father in the House, Everything is Beautiful, Planned Parenthood, Covenant
Marriage and The Lifestyle Generation. Retail price $19.95
