              Humbling Faith: Brokenness, Doubt, Dialogue-What Unites Atheists, Theists, and Nontheists
               

              Humbling Faith: Brokenness, Doubt, Dialogue-What Unites Atheists, Theists, and Nontheists (EPUB ebook)

              By Admirand, Peter

              This is a book hoping to embolden doubt and sharpen unanswerable questions, all in the context of loving the self and one another. Ridiculously, it believes the world can be healed through such a hope. It is especially addressed to those allergic to the word "faith," and others w...ho feel confident and proud in the faith they profess or system of thought they live by. Humbling Faith helps us see how our beliefs, or non-beliefs, our belongings and identities, often remain flawed, myopic, self-absorbed, unredeemed. The hope is that such awareness of our brokenness can fuel greater ethical partnerships and dialogue, promoting peace from our recognized need for one another. Humbling Faith is not only a resource towards humbling other faiths, but most importantly, your own.

              Ann: A Story of Intolerance
               

              Ann: A Story of Intolerance (EPUB ebook)

              By Moehl, John

              Ann may have been a product of her times--she was certainly, if possibly unwittingly, a product of her grandmother Isabelle. While Ann may have been molded by external forces, Isabelle was a force unto herself--a pacesetter, an indomitable woman of her times. Isabelle forged aven...ues that were often not taken by women of her day, even foreshadowing changes in perception that were still years away. Yet, in spite of her often avant-garde actions, her prejudices were unwavering and largely myopic. While Isabelle's single-mindedness was mimicked, even magnified by her granddaughter, Ann would never acknowledge that she was her grandmother's facsimile. She believed she was her own woman and headed to the top. Ann was a manipulator and a schemer. Sadly, Ann left very little good in her wake. The lives of Ann and Isabelle touched many; dragging some under, pushing others aside, and overpowering those close to them. Their lives served as textbook cases of bigotry and discrimination that are warnings that tolerance and acceptance are key to our social fabric.

              Journal It!: Take Hold of Your Life by Journaling (EPUB ebook)

              By Tipton, Gwendolyn Carole

              My own writing began in a diary in the fourth grade. I wrote about my daily life and dreams of the future. Now, my journal keeps me on track while recalling God's promise of faithfulness and his words of engagement for my life. Journaling strategies in this book direct and guide... the reader to program opportunities that create a new you or transform your life. I write and grasp a spiritual equilibrium that admits his presence into my surroundings, because I believe this life is training for eternity as we live it with a view toward God's kingdom. And no matter how out of control life becomes, we awaken each day to "the bright and morning star..." (Rev 22:16). I pray you will journal and record the signs, miracles, and wonders that God's Spirit gives you to take hold of your life. While I pray through my meditative journal, I am anticipating that no matter, He will return again.

              Challenged and Changed: Living and Learning in Central America
               

              Challenged and Changed: Living and Learning in Central America (EPUB ebook)

              By Scott, Lindy; Hernandez, Kim

              The stories in this book are the fruit of a vision that took root more than four decades ago. When Ron and Marianne Frase came to Whitworth College back in 1973, they had the dream that Whitworth students could travel to Latin America and learn many truths through deep experienti...al learning. This would take place through listening to, living among, and loving our Latino neighbors. The chapters are filled with stories of growth and change. Some are fun and comical. Others are painful encounters with difficult lessons. Time and time again, the resiliency and faith of Central Americans emerge and inspire. The vignettes are windows into discovering how lessons learned in Central America shaped students' lives years after their graduation. Additionally, Whitworth itself became a better academic institution, more willing to take on the tough academic, social, and political contemporary challenges so that its students could genuinely become well-equipped global citizens and servants of Christ.

              Fly-fishing the Arctic Circle to Tasmania: A Preacher's Adventures and Reflections
                

              Fly-fishing the Arctic Circle to Tasmania: A Preacher's Adventures and Reflections (EPUB ebook)

              By White, James W.

              Marooned on a river island above the Arctic Circle, caught by a flash flood in New Zealand, boated with an NFL cheerleader in the Caribbean, robbed in a British Columbia motel, and bunked with an almost-terrorist in Manitoba, this author-preacher from Colorado has had some intere...sting experiences when going "further out" to fish. Twelve ebullient stories of adventure, travel, and international fly-fishing are told here. They are undergirded by a singular autobiographical story that weaves James White's passion for fly-fishing with his vocation in ministry. The book takes the reader from the Indian Ocean to the River Vltava in Bohemia. The characters met include "two-headed" Taswegians and Lake Woebegon "strong women." In one story, you stand with the author on "basement of time" metamorphics, beneath the Northern Lights in another, and before the Southern Cross in a third. You'll go on an "Ixthus/Christ and Ichthyology/Fishing" retreat. With the stories are illuminating photographs of giant rainbows, massive moose antlers, and "Jesus Rays" coming through a Ukrainian Orthodox church cupola. The book leads to rumination on Henry David Thoreau's observation that "Men may go fishing all their life and never know it's not fish they're after."

              Before I Forget: An Illustrated Autobiography of Murray J. Harris
                

              Before I Forget: An Illustrated Autobiography of Murray J. Harris (EPUB ebook)

              By Harris, Murray J.

              Who would ever imagine that an eighteen-year-old who began his career teaching thirty-two eight-year-olds in a state school in an insignificant city in the remote South Pacific would end up on the world stage as the writer of definitive technical volumes in the field of biblical ...studies and as the only scholar from Australia/New Zealand on the Committee on Bible Translation that produced the New International Version? This autobiography is the account of the surprising stages that led Murray Harris from his humble beginnings to ending his teaching career as a professor emeritus at a leading United States theological institution. These stages are here attributed to the gracious guiding hand of a God who delights in providing serendipities while achieving his purposes. All this is recorded with humor and with many photos and illustrations.

              Maimonides's Yahweh: Rabbinic Judaism's Attempt to Answer the Incarnational Question
               

              Maimonides's Yahweh: Rabbinic Judaism's Attempt to Answer the Incarnational Question (EPUB ebook)

              By Downey, Amy Karen

              The life of Moshe ben Maimon (Maimonides) remains a mystery to many within evangelical Christianity. However, he is lauded as a second Moses by many within modern Judaism. Does he deserve that title? Maimonides's via negativa created a rationale for rejecting the messiahship ...claims of Jesus in Rabbinic Judaism. Therefore, this book seeks to illustrate that Maimonides, in his desire to create an anti-Christian apologetic regarding the incarnation, fashioned a Judaism that does not reflect the truths of the Tanakh (Old Testament) and developed a Judaism that was untenable for the Jewish people of the twenty-first century. Many Jewish people today are turning in a thousand and one different directions for spiritual answers, but not in the only way that will offer the way to God: Jesus of Nazareth (John 14:6). This work examines the history of Maimonides, his teachings, and an apologetic approach to bring the gospel back to the Jewish people (Rom 1:16).

              Revelation: The Education of a Priest
               

              Revelation: The Education of a Priest (EPUB ebook)

              By Coleman, Dale

              Over the forty-plus years of his adult vocation as an Episcopal priest, Dale Coleman has wanted to write about his journey from the Salvation Army to the Episcopal Church. He wished to be in a Christian church with "elbow room" that would allow questions, true spiritual growth, a...nd "faith seeking understanding." Dale is fearless in looking at the Episcopal Church, and especially his seminary days at a "smells and bells" traditional Anglican Seminary. He writes boldly and freely about the boy he was and the man he has become, placing his first allegiance in the Lord Jesus Christ. Christians need to be honest and clear about their faith in the growing toxicity of our culture. His first questions from his youth were "Where did the Bible come from, and how is it to be read and interpreted?" These and many other questions about the Christian church, its faith and life are addressed in this book. If you've ever wondered about such matters, this is the book for you!

              A Communion of Love: The Christ-Centered Spirituality of Robert Murray M'Cheyne
               

              A Communion of Love: The Christ-Centered Spirituality of Robert Murray M'Cheyne (EPUB ebook)

              By Stone, Jordan

              Few figures in church history that died before the age of thirty have left such a lasting legacy as Robert Murray M'Cheyne (1813-43). His name is virtually synonymous with the pursuit of personal holiness. M'Cheyne was a living testimony to Scripture's command to "let no one desp...ise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity" (1 Tim 4:12). His ardent praying, preaching, and progress in godliness continue to captivate countless Christians around the world. The model of piety found in M'Cheyne's life and ministry provides needed encouragement for properly understanding biblical spirituality. What was the main fuel of his spirituality? Love for Jesus Christ. In A Communion of Love, Jordan Stone argues that rightly understanding M'Cheyne's spirituality must begin with the fundamental issue of why he pursued the means of grace as he did, before reckoning with how he used those means. Such a reorientation reveals that loving communion with Christ was the all-consuming, driving force for M'Cheyne's vision of the Christian life.

              Worship as Community Drama: Introduction to Liturgy Evaluation
               

              Worship as Community Drama: Introduction to Liturgy Evaluation (EPUB ebook)

              By Hegy, Pierre

              Church weddings, funerals, and most Sunday services reflect the values and dramas of their communities, even when the ministers are the main or sole actors. This point is illustrated by examples ranging from American television masses to the Zairean three-hour services in the Con...go. Of greatest interest to readers might be the Sunday services at ordinary parishes, which also range from friendly but uninspiring to innovative and inviting. There are also two exceptionally vital churches analyzed here: an evangelical church in the Pentecostal tradition and a social justice parish in the tradition of Martin Luther King Jr. Today one can hardly buy an item in a store or on the Internet without being asked for an evaluation, yet church services are seldom evaluated. There can be no improvement without evaluation. This book proposes a method of evaluation in eight steps that must be rigorously scientific and at the same time offer a vision for spiritual growth. The prophet Elijah found God in earthquakes and fire, but most people find mystery through art, music, rhythm, chanting, expressive readings, evocative rituals, and enlightened homilies. Today people expect "mystagogy" rather than routine performances. Mystagogy can be learned and improved through evaluation, to which this book desires to make a major contribution.
