So begins this powerful volume from Dr. Tony Evans, now in softcover. Tony believes that God wants every man to be a world-changer. He skillfully takes readers along a journey through the principles of biblical manhood, exploring how those who live, work, and minister around a kingdom man benefit from his leadership and care. Men will be challenged to fully understand their position under God as well as their position over what God has given them. Equipped with these concepts, they can actively pursue ways to maximize and develop the character qualities of biblical manhood in their lives. As Tony contends, the enemy doesn’t want you to know it, but you’re not the man you think you are. You’re a whole lot more. Starting now, you can be a kingdom man.
With passion and clarity, Dr. Evans demystifies spiritual warfare so that readers can tackle challenges and obstacles with spiritual power—God’s authority—as they:understand how the battle is fought by Satanactively use the armor of Godfind strength in prayer and sufficiency in Christwin over chemical, sexual, emotional, relational, and other strongholds
Dr. Evans is compelling, down to earth, and excited for believers to experience their victory in Christ and embrace the life, hope, and purpose God has for them.
In Kingdom Woman, Tony Evans and his daughter, Chrystal Evans Hurst, remind women of their calling from God to be free, delivered, healed, and hopeful. The authors bring insight that encourages women to correct distorted perceptions and understand who they really are in Christ—never settling for less when connected with the One who gives them hope. All believers are covered by God’s covenant with Abraham. Evans and Hurst want women to know these rights and confidently claim and live by them. The new covenant offers more than a life of mediocrity. A kingdom woman is called and empowered to live a life of victory through Christ!
In For Married Women Only, pastor and author Tony Evans explores these three principles in a straight-forward yet encouraging manner. He unpacks the touchy topic of submission and lays out the rewards inherent in this biblical model. On seduction, Evans looks at the quality of attractiveness and how embodying it can be pleasing to your spouse and to God. And with surrender, readers will examine why a wife is the perfect help mate for her husband and how to combat attitudes opposed to God’s design.

In For Married Men Only, each of these principles is explored and explained using real-life examples. How can a husband be his wife’s savior? By learning to love her as Christ loved the church. What about sanctifier? By dying to self and modeling sacrificial love, no matter what the result. And satisfier? By studying and serving his wife so he can fulfill her needs, just as Christ humbled Himself for our sakes.

Marriage Matters paints a picture of what it means to have a happy marriage—as God defines happiness. By examining the nature of the covenant and the purpose of marriage, Tony Evans gives steps to developing and maintaining a healthy relationship.
In his approachable style, Dr. Evans explains the origins, order, and operation of marriage in its relation to Scripture. If the profound fruits of your marriage have turned into something mundane, or the validity of the covenant of marriage eludes you, then join Tony Evans in figuring out why Marriage Matters.
In the age where people can get a “no-fault” divorce (When is it ever nobody’s fault?) believers who claim to live by God’s word cannot dodge the issue: we cannot skip it, run from it, or ignore it. God has spoken clearly on this subject and while it is far from easy to address, it must be dealt with. Combining a high view of marriage, compassion, and biblical authority, Tony Evans gives invaluable insight into divorce and remarriage as he explores real-life fears and questions by looking at the issue from God’s vantage point, not from our emotional one.

What would happen if our phones and computers ran out of power and couldn't be recharged? They would still have everything necessary to provide us with what we use them for, but without power they’d be useless.
There is something more powerful than the technology we use each day. And it has an even greater capacity to positively impact and enrich our lives in every way. Yet it is an untapped, frequently inactivated resource. That something is the cross.
In this book, Dr. Tony Evans will help you understand how to activate the power of the cross, gaining access to all of the benefits, blessings, and power contained within it and through it, so that you can live the empowered and victorious life God intended.
Nothing could be further from the truth." ---Tony Evans
What we think about God, also known as theology, influences what we believe, do, and say. And what we think, whether true or false, makes a big difference in real life.
Tony Evans wants you to know the truth about God, so Theology You Can Count On communicates truths about God in language you can understand. He walks through what the Bible teaches, topic by topic, truth by truth. The great thing is, these truths aren't reserved for people with PhDs. They're for real life. They're for you.
Families are failing, the divorce rate is rising, marriage is being re-defined, and roles are no longer properly understood. And because of this crisis, far too many of our nation’s children are growing up without a proper blueprint of the family. They are growing up without answers to questions like, “How do I become a man” or “What does a good wife look like?”
There are answers to this crisis, and there is a road map to becoming a family under God.
One Family Under God: Preserving the Home as God Intended will unveil the foundational issues within our homes and point you to lasting solutions. Dr. Tony Evans will help you understand the concept and importance of family as God intended and how the state of the family directly impacts our nation.
And a current event bringing heaven to bear on us

Stewardship — Using what we have to further God’s kingdom agenda
Rewards — The blessings and benefits of doing it God’s way
Victory — Overcoming debt and financial bondage

At a time when it seems that our nation is toppling over—morally, culturally, economically, and politically—you may be asking this question: Is there any hope for America?
Dr. Tony Evans says YES.
In America: Turning a Nation to God, Dr. Evans helps Christians understand that at the core, America's problems are spiritual. And, God and His rule are America's only hope. As His people, God is calling us to return to Him in humility and repentance, to submit to His rule and authority. Only as we commit to doing so, individually and collectively, will we realize that hope.
We hold within the collective body of Christ not only the power but also the capacity to put our country back on the path of ascendancy. This straight-forward teaching, when embraced by believers in our nation, will usher in the greatest revival in American history.

“You don’t know my God.”

Few supernatural beings are of more speculation than angels. In art we see them depicted as chubby babies and fierce, radiant warriors. Sometimes they wield swords; other times a bow and arrow surrounded by floating hearts. Some have halos; some do not. Clearly we’re confused.
In The Truth About Angels, Tony Evans goes to the Scriptures to set the record straight. He clearly and simply explains who angels are, what they do, and it what it all means for the everyday lives of believers.
A short, practical, and engaging book, The Truth About Angels is a one-stop guide to the role of angels in the world and eternity. It will help you fight the good fight of faith, knowing that the heavenly hosts are waging war on your behalf.

It seems that everyone has an agenda. People have plans, programs, things they want to accomplish, and the way they want to accomplish them. God has an agenda too, something He wants to accomplish His way.
This agenda, according to Scripture, is God's Kingdom, which is an alternative to the kingdom of this world. God's people are not limited by the choices the world offers but are called to live according to God's kingdom agenda.
Dr. Tony Evans adapts the core themes of his legacy work The Kingdom Agenda: Life Under God into a format to be read daily—365 devotions to challenge, encourage, and inspire readers to live according to God's agenda in every area of life.
This devotional provides overarching parenting principles from Scripture, along with teaching and inspiration for contributing to a child’s relationship with God and alignment under His plan. It also provides specific encouragement to parents as they live out Kingdom-minded values and instill them in their children—including the power of prayer, wisdom, loving God’s Word, getting through trials, controlling the tongue, developing patience, the surrender of service, and more.
The difficulty of emotional pain and spiritual setbacks is of a much different sort than any physical challenge. Many of us men are not comfortable or well-equipped to grapple with them. Tony Evans gives us the kind of advice and inspiration we need to battle on through the most difficult circumstances.
Drawing from the lives of Moses, David, Joseph, Jonah, and other biblical men who faced the worst, Evans pulls men out of their brokenness and declares, "No more!" No more falling short of being the man God desires you to be for any reason. Evans shows that the struggles faced yesterday and today are the very same tools God is using to make us better men for tomorrow.
