Unpunishable: Ending Our Love Affair with Punishment

by Danny Silk

Living with humans is messy. Messes are scary, painful, and offensive. And whether we're dealing with the pain of a personal failure, the frustration of a disrespectful child, the devastation of a major betrayal, the stress of a workplace conflict, or the fallout of larger social injustices, classically we react the same way--with fear, shame, and punishment.

These reactions are understandable . . . but they don't do anything to fix the problem. In fact, they only perpetuate a culture of fear, unforgiveness, retribution, and disconnection.

Jesus came to show us a better way to respond to human messes--the way of repentance, reconciliation, and restoration. This way removes fear, shame, and punishment from people's lives, empowers them to deal with the root of their problems, and equips them to build a new lifestyle of walking in the light and protecting connection with God, themselves, and others.

Unpunishable is a roadmap for walking out repentance, reconciliation, and restoration in our own lives, leading others in this journey, and creating punishment-free cultures of love in our lives, relationships, families, churches, and organizations.

Christianity tends to focus on beliefs and choices as the keys for personal growth. But biblical evidence and modern brain science tell a different story.

Combining faith with the latest developments in neuroscience and psychology, Renovated offers a groundbreaking and refreshing perspective of how our attachment to God impacts our minds and hearts. You’ll find that our spiritual growth is about more than just what we believe―it’s about who we love.

Drawing from conversations he had with Dallas Willard shortly before Dallas’s death, Jim Wilder shows how we can train our brains to relate to God. Transformative and encouraging, this book offers practical insight for deepening your relationship with God through the wondrous brain and soul that He has given you.

Let’s face it: Life is hard. We all get overwhelmed at times.

But some people seem to bounce back from their upset emotions faster than most.

Are they just born happy? Or is there a secret to building emotional resilience that anyone can learn?

Building Bounce explains the theory behind growing emotional resilience and provides practical tools you can use in a variety of settings, such as growing your own emotional capacity, parenting children in ways that build joy, and helping others who live low-joy lives learn the skills that grow joy. The good news is that wherever you are starting this journey, growth is possible. People used to believe we were victims of the wiring in our brains. We now know that our brains can be rewired. In Building Bounce you will learn how to train your brain by building habits that increase your ability to bounce back from the hard things in life.

The world wounds us, the devil lies to us, we vow never to let it happen again and we spend our lives picking the fruit of our wounds.

It doesn't have to stay this way.

This book introduces a simple model for understanding the wounded heart and offers practical, transferable tools for experiencing God’s healing and transformation. These tools help people experience healing: building joy, taking thoughts captive, forgiveness, and listening prayer.

Life is hard when you’re not yourself.

Discover the simple switch in your brain that activates - or deactivates - what you most need for relational connectivity: joy. In The Joy Switch, learn how the simple flip of this brain switch either enables you to remain present for those around you or causes you to become overwhelmed - and ultimately inhibited from being your best self - when problems arise. You’ll learn how to maximize your relational brain, how to recognize when your brain’s joy switch is flipped, and how to take steps to restore your relational sweet-spot. This book will help you love others and remain fully connected with yourself while being the best version of who you were made to be.

by Henry Cloud & John Townsend

Does your life feel like it's out of control? Perhaps you feel like you have to say yes to everyone's requests. Maybe you find yourself readily taking responsibility for others' feelings and problems. Or perhaps you focus so much on being loving and unselfish that you've forgotten your own limits and limitations. Or maybe it's all of the above.

Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend help you learn when to say yes and know how to say no in order to take control of your life and set healthy, biblical boundaries with your spouse, children, friends, parents, co-workers, and even yourself.

Now updated and expanded for the digital age, this book continues to help millions of people around the world answer these tough questions:

  • Can I set limits and still be a loving person?

  • What are legitimate boundaries?

  • How do I effectively manage my digital life so that it doesn't control me?

  • What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries?

  • How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money?

  • Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries?

  • How do boundaries relate to mutual submission within marriage?

  • Aren’t boundaries selfish?
