              The Holy Spirit as Person and Power: Charismatic Renewal and Its Implications for Theology
                

              The Holy Spirit as Person and Power: Charismatic Renewal and Its Implications for Theology (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              In just over one hundred years, the Pentecostal-charismatic movement has transformed world Christianity. Noted for their rediscovery of spiritual gifts and commitment to world evangelization, 700 million Pentecostals and charismatics now account for more than 27 percent of the gl...obal Christian movement. The Pentecostal-charismatic movement has been more noted for its activism than for theological reflection. But this may be changing. The Holy Spirit as Person and Power challenges traditional theology to take account of what has been disclosed in the dynamism and variety of charismatic experience. The author is a theologically trained practitioner, impacted in midlife by a transforming experience of the Holy Spirit. He has been a hands-on leader in the renewal movement. Now, in his later years, he reflects on the meaning of the grace imparted to the church by the renewing activity of God's Spirit. This is not the work of an enthusiast claiming a new revelation. Rather, the author draws attention to many nuances in the Bible's description of the Spirit that have been overlooked in traditional pneumatology. By relating these insights to Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant, and evangelical theology, he has produced a book with ecumenical implications for all branches of world Christianity.

              A Lifetime of Genesis
                

              A Lifetime of Genesis (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              For many readers of the Bible, there are two major obstacles to the enjoyment of scripture: comprehension and relevancy. In A Lifetime of Genesis, Rabbi Zoob seeks to help the reader overcome these obstacles. In clear, logical prose, Rabbi Zoob explains the course of the Covenant... of Abraham in Genesis and how each major player--Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel, and Leah--has an impact on the development and continuity of the Covenant of Abraham. He solves the relevancy problem by sharing stories from his life that are connected to the patriarchal and matriarchal events and themes in each previous chapter. For example, following an analysis of the challenge of infertility that Abraham and Sarah faced, he tells the story of how he and his wife Barbara struggled through thirteen years of childlessness. And after the chapter on how Jacob wrestled with the angel and the many challenges in his life, Rabbi Zoob recalls his sibling struggles with his brother and his wrestling with seasonal depression. Rabbi Zoob hopes that his use of this midrashic process to discover personal insights will encourage the reader to do the same. Zoob's work is in part an enlightening analysis of the Covenant of Israel as it develops in the Book of Genesis. Yet, its power lies in his immersion into the narratives of Genesis which impel him to remember and relive his own life journey even as it demands our own self-reflection. His book is chock full of insights spawned by the Biblical characters which will challenge every modern reader. --Norman J. Cohen, Provost and Professor Emeritus of Midrash, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion A Lifetime of Genesisis the fruit of a lifetime of rabbinic learning. It is heartfelt, learned, inspiring and, above all, wise. While many clergy have writtenautobiographies, to my knowledge, none have indexed their lives through a book of the Bible. Zoob effortlessly shuttles between serious biblical scholarship and candid--even s

              Vicchio believes that by understanding how much Muslim tradition overlaps with the biblical traditions of Judaism and Christianity, we might begin to expose a wedge of common ground on which understanding and respect might begin to be built. Vicchio begins with a brief introducti...on sketching some fundamentals of Muslim history and culture, and clearing away some common misconceptions. His main goal, however, is to give us a detailed look at the treatment of biblical figures in the literature of Islam. The broad range of his research and presentation is startling. He begins with the Qur'an but continues on to the collected writing of the roughly two hundred years after Mohammed (Hadith, Sunnah, Akhbar) that came to be regarded as authoritative in the various traditions that developed in early Islam. He then traces the interest in these biblical figures on into modern treatments of the role of these figures in Muslim scholarship and how these figures are understood and used in the traditions of Islam yet today. The result of Vicchio's scholarship and presentation will be a revelation to most Christian and Jewish readers. It has become somewhat commonplace to refer to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as the three Abrahamic faiths. This shows a beginning awareness of the beginnings of each of these three great religions, birthed in the Middle East, in a common ancestor, Abraham (Ibrahim). Abraham's faithfulness and his closeness to God make his a revered figure in each of these three great faiths, and for each Abraham is a beginning of the story of the particular relationship between God and the people of each of these religions. --from the Foreword Stephen J. Vicchio is Professor of Philosophy at College of Notre Dame of Maryland. He is also the author of The Voice from the Whirlwind and the Image of the Biblical Job (3 vols.).

              Money touches everything in our lives. It communicates our values whether we want it to or not, often simultaneously resulting in what we prefer and what we regret. Those who wish to be thoughtful about how they reflect God's image in all things, do well to think through what the...y believe about earning and using money. This volume walks through a logical progression of how to think and act in regards to money, and provides scores of scenarios for discussion and application. Don't be fooled by the title. This book is about so much more than money. Mark walks us through Scripture, history, theology, and real life stories to challenge and inspire us to be faithful, joyful stewards of life. This is a wonderfully thorough treatment of money and its place in the Christian life. If readers will complete Mark's suggested action steps at the end of each chapter, their life will be forever changed...and blessed! --R. Scott Rodin, PhD, President, The Steward's Journey; Author of The Steward Leader Consider this book your toolbox to reassess how you view and use money compared to God's values. Identifying money's godlike strength in our culture, it offers seven church practices to encourage first fruits living. Vincent gives us a way to look at our personal priorities, then reset our lives as God's representatives committed to generous, grace-filled living. With case studies, questions, and a leader's guide, it's an excellent book for study groups. --Betsy Schwarzentraub, Author of Afire With God: Becoming Spirited Stewards The Fourth Edition of this classic is passionate, challenging, and contextually current. The original book, reflecting Giving Project theology, grounded my former national Stewardship Development ministry and informed my research on giving. The congregation I now serve has heard vintage Vincent on money's God-like powers and first fruits living in sermons, offering invitations, and stewardship teaching.

              The growth and religious commitment of the Latino community in the U.S. presents a unique set of challenges for pastors in that community. Walk with the People: Latino Ministry in the United States identifies and analyzes the contemporary challenges facing Latino churches in the ...U.S. and some of the issues they are likely to face in the future. Latino pastors and others working in the community need to understand and grapple with these challenges. As the Latino community continues to grow and diversify, effective church leaders in Latino congregations will need to retool their ministries to address these changes. An excellent and far-ranging introduction to Protestant Latino ministries in the United States, combining theory with practice, demographic data with theological perspicacity, and historical background with attention to the present challenges and opportunities. --Justo L. Gonzalez, author of Manana: Christian Theology from a Hispanic Perspective After reviewing where the Latino church was twenty years ago when I wrote The Hispanic Challenge, and now examining the work of Juan Martinez, I found his book extremely encouraging and helpful in assisting the Latino church in this globalized society. The sociology of religion and the actual issues related to assimilation and adaptation will help the church in North America to be much more missiological as it engages the twenty-first century. I highly recommend this book to both Latino and non-Latino churches. --Manuel Ortiz, Westminister Theological Seminary Hispanic Evangelicals continue in their struggle to define themselves and educate other in the process. This book will bring greater clarity [about] who we are and the enormous potential of our contribution. --Dan de Leon Sr., Pastor, Templo Calvario, Inc. Now that Hispanics have become the largest minority group in America, this book could not be more timely.

              James Edwards believes God is in the business of interrupting lives and changing them forever. He shows how the stories of eight biblical characters are paradigms for the ways God intrudes in our lives today, leading us to do His will and become the people He wants us to be. Thro...ugh creatively told Bible stories and intriguing anecdotes of personal experiences, Edwards creates an interplay between the historical and the contemporary that allows you to discover God afresh. You'll observe how God interrupts people's lives in times of disillusionment, inadequacy, grief, and even opposition. As you join these conversations, you'll understand God's character in a new, intimate way. And, you may see clues to God's interruptions in your own life. --Dr. Edwards has offered us what we most need and most resist--a terrifying meeting with God. As a biblical scholar, he provides fresh insights into the classic confrontations of creatures with their Creator.-- --Craig Barnes, President Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, NJ --I am deeply engaged and moved by The Divine Intruder. The writing has a certain classic quality about it. The 'breakthroughs' of God into our lives that James Edwards explores are crucial to the formation of the human spirit in godliness.----Dallas Willard, former professor of philosophy at the University of Southern California and author of The Spirit of the Disciplines and The Divine Conspiracy --I know of no wiser contemporary teacher of the doctrine of God than Jim Edwards. This book's studies of the great biblical meetings with God instructs us in how this God encounters us curious human beings.----F.

              Many churches are involved in short-term mission trips. Most of these trips, however, are focused on economic or social development projects, coupled with relational evangelism. Not many are focused on discipleship, or, more specifically, training indigenous pastors in the essent...ial doctrines of the faith so that they can, in turn, disciple their church. In fact, reproducible models for in-depth theological education during short-term missions are rare. As a missionary presently ministering in a number of underdeveloped nations, Steve Curtis has witnessed the need for, and potential benefit of, such models. The reality is that there are countless pastors throughout the majority world who have had little to no formal training in Bible or doctrine. This book suggests a practical way that churches can use their short-term missions program--together with their adult discipleship program--to help meet this critical, global need. The work of Steve Curtis and Timothy Two Project International, as outlined in this book, is invaluable. It uses a biblical model rather than a pragmatic one. I heartily endorse the book and Steve Curtis unreservedly. --Don Kistler, Founder, Northhampton Press This book focuses on a gap in the kinds of short-term mission trips done by church volunteers.Steve's research is thorough and documents the need for education as an activity on short-term mission trips.The model he recommends is reproducible and adaptable to many mission settings. --Charles N. Davidson Ch, Lt. Col. USAF (Ret.); Director, Doctorate Degree Program, School of Divinity, Liberty University Steve Curtis has gained years of experience to be a 'mobile missionary instructor' in the most remote places among unreached people groups in developing countries. . . . In this book he deals with all aspects of the training and thrusting out of church members as short-term educators in God's worldwide harvest field.

              Relationships between people are frequently compromised as a result of religious viewpoints, but appropriate spiritual care requires bridges to understanding that will allow for trust and justice to become visible. The pattern for this book is shaped on the recognition that, whil...e religious expressions differ markedly in their presentation, we can discern at the core of all religious expressions a supposition of sacred presence. It is therefore helpful for us all, in the daily events of our lives, that we approach people of other faiths with a degree of humility, recognizing that neither we, nor they, have a final answer to the question of faith. The book is divided into four parts, each part containing some chapters, in which elements of interfaith care are considered. Part one explores the complexities of interfaith engagement. Part two discusses ways for caring for each other in the search for meaning. Part three claims that spirituality is most difficult, if not impossible to define, but can be visible in a variety of experiences. The fourth part explores ways in which all that has gone before may be put into practice as spiritual care. Thought-provoking and stimulating, this book provides a way forward for spiritual care practitioners to critically reflect on their approach to spiritualcare within the growing plurality of faith traditions in health care settings. Full of practical wisdom, this book, in dealing with a complex subject, underscores the need for greater sensitivity to religion and spirituality in the context of helping relationships. It invites conversation and fosters further reflection on the subject of interfaith spiritual care. --Linda McWilliam, Director, Mission & Social Justice, Anglicare Southern Queensland This is a book for practitioners or inquirers who want to be challenged that spiritual care is not easy to define, nor something which is to 'be done.' Walter Stratford shows that spiritual care, when practiced with care, is a relationsh
