But theres nothing that has more additives to the original product than Christianity. How do we get back to the 100 organic version of Jesus In his personal search for the organic Jesus Scott Douglas goes on a funny thought-provoking romp through the foundations of belief. Christianity he says has become a simulacruma bloated overprocessed image that lacks the true substance of the real thing. His search for the original took him far and wide through historical Christ figures urban legends odd facts about the faith freakishly flawed Christians and the Internet. Using relatable contemporary anecdotes and unlikely wisdom concealed within humor Douglas reveals a way back to the authentic essence of fol- lowing Christ. By including wiki breaks social media callouts quizzes charts and more OrganicJesus is ideal for readers raised on social media who cant step out of their house without tweeting about it or eat lunch without posting on Instagram. Douglas is careful to be as non-biased as possible writing not for any par- ticular agendapolitical or otherwisebut instead encouraging readers to seek their own path for spiritual renewal. The result is a candid look at modern Christianity that will challenge savvy young Christians to put as much effort into discovering sustain- able religion as they do in their pursuit of an organic marketplace.

Too often the lies of worthlessness are believed the pain becomes too much to handle and victims find themselves making choices that lead to more heartbreak. With over 42 million survivors both male and female in the United States alone the need for healing is enormous. There is no simple formula for that healing but Crystal Sutherlandherself a survivor of childhood sexual abuse argues that essential steps to be taken can be found in Scripture. Journey to Heal is a guided study through those seven steps for adult female survivors who want to progress from simply coping with life and want instead to live abundantly. Sutherland writes candidly and openly from her personal journey of healing. Her experience has earned her the right to speak as a friend to other survivors and to offer answers to some of their deepest questions. She deliberately avoids the detailed description that can be a hurtful triggering incident for victims insteadfocusingontheimportanceofmovingforwardwithrecov- ery. The book is infused with biblical truths stories of hope from other survivors and practical wisdom to carry on the journey to healing. Crystal M. Sutherland is a writer speaker ministry leader and mentor for survivors of sexual abuse.

As men who experienced childhood abuse the authors of this book are uniquely qualified to address the healing process of male survivors. Using the metaphor of a car accident Naming Our Abuse leads the survivor from the Wreck to the Accident Report to Rehabilitation to Driving Again. This four-step model illustrates that healing is a process to be nurtured rather than something that can be healed in a single telling. Following the authors examples readers are invited to find solidarity with other male survivors and develop an understanding of their own wounding through journaling exercises.

What happens then when we follow Gods will to the best of our abilities and heartbreak strikes Do we mean it when we implore Have Thine own way Lord or does that only apply in times of blessings or small manageable hurts John Feinberg knows that conundrum intimately. In 1987 his beloved wife was diagnosed with an incurable genetically trans- mitted disease. They were immediately challenged in their faith and their approach to Gods goodness in the face of the evil of suffering. More they discovered just how little their Christian community understood about how to support people in crisis. When There Are No Easy Answers considers the problem of grief from every angle just as the Feinbergs walked through it in their journey. It confronts the question of justice examines the nature of God and argues for the reality of grace. Feinberg explores the biblical reasons against the use of traditional clichs and platitudes especially by those in ministry and lays out alter- natives that can actually comfort and encourage the person who is struggling or grieving. John S. Feinberg is professor of biblical and systematic theol- ogy at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He has also pastored churches and taught at Western Baptist Seminary and Liberty University. Feinbergs previous works include Continuity and Discontinuity Ethics for a Brave New World and The Many Faces of Evil. 6 CHRISTIAN LIVING ISBN 978-0-8254-4412-8 9 7 8 0 8 2 5 4 4 4 1 2 8 When There Are No Easy Answers Thinking Differently About God Suffering and Evil John S.

Always at his side supporting him has been his wife Joanne his partner for over fifty years. Now Joanne is gripped in a long decline sinking gradually into agitated dementia. She depends on Neils presence even calling him Daddy. He has no training as a nurse but now for long hours he sits at her bedside and cares for her every need. They do not speak much conversation is a strain. So Neil has used the silent hours to pray to spend time in Gods presence and to reflect on what this means. I have become keenly aware that God is using Joannes illness to teach me about the power of presence. Im learning on a much deeper level the purpose of just being there and what it means to be still and know that He is God. There is an inexplicable peace that comes from knowing I dont have to do in order to be in Gods willto be in His presenceto be in each others presence. It has been a peaceful time of reflection upon the presence of God and how that has shaped me our marriage and ministry. My theology tells me that God is omnipresent but we are not always aware of His presence and yet without His presence we are not fully alive. Neil T. Anderson was raised on a farm in Minnesota and served for four years in the US Navy. He then worked four years as an aerospace engineer before being called into full-time ministry.

Leadership is tough. Many leaders come to ministry leadership from competence in a different field but without training and with a gnawing fear that they cannot really lead and will be found out one day. Many leaders are insecure constantly assessing how they are coming across and where challenges may arise. Being grounded in Christ is the foundation for all true Christian leadership. This identity-based leadership makes us less driven and reduces the risk of burnout it enables us to survive personal attacks use conflict positively and overcome other bar- riers to effective leadership. Once we operate from this secure base centered on and grounded in Christ we become less vul- nerable to threats to our status we cease to have anything to hide because we can afford to be vulnerable and we are less likely to be blown off course by strong-willed people wanting to push their own agenda.

Drawing on the narrative of Moses they show how we can be game changers. The book is presented in five provocative sections Encounter. Like Moses at the burning bush we must make time to encounter God. Engage. Like Moses with Pharaoh we must engage with our communities and the issues at hand. Ensemble. We are the body of Christ and everyone plays a vital part. Like Hur Aaron Moses and Joshua we will minister most effectively when we do it together. Equip. How do we hear and respond to what the Lord is doing listen see and respond to what the Spirit is saying or be equipped to go with others to make a difference Empower. Like Moses and Joshua we need to pass on the vision and empower the next generation we may not see our God-given dreams fulfilled in our generation. God is very much at work in our twenty-first-century world. He is doing new and different things by the power of His Spirit. The question is do we want to join Him If so its time to become Game Changers.

All too often theyre merely anxious little boys who never become truly men rather than just male.

Some have chosen a freer interpretation of the biblical texts. Others dont know where they belong or what they should believe. Still others remain gay- identified yet choose celibacy. All have found that their sexual orientation strongly influences even defines who they perceive themselves to be. Jeanette believes that to identify herself as gay does not do justice to what God has been doing in her life. Christians belong to Christ. I have been born from on high and have a completely new DNA Gods DNA residing in me and flowing through me says Jeanette. I am no longer a sinner but a saint. I am a daughter of the King. With intelligence compassion and fellow-feeling Jeanette explains what it means as a Christian who has wrestled for the whole of her adult life with same-sex attraction to live honestly and consistently as a Bible-believing Christian. Jeanette Howard has labored in ministry dealing with sexuality for decades and is well qualified to speak to the current issues and ministry challenges involved. To read Dwelling in the Land is to soak in reasoned clear biblically based principles lessons learned from a woman whos been there done that and is doing it well.

Reconciliation is at the heart of each story though reconciliation in the context of the Middle East is fraught with danger and seemingly impossible challenges. These interviews demonstrate how despite the tensions and the dreadful headlines the numbers of believers in Jesus are growing among both Palestinian Muslims and Jews. Interviewees include expatriate Jews children of Holocaust survivors believers from Muslim backgrounds a former drug addict a pastor in Bethlehem and an Egyptian setting up an underground church in Gaza.

He and his wife Edna spent more than a decade leading expeditions into the heart of Borneo. Gradually they became convinced that the Lord was calling them to minister in the Arabian Peninsula in particular to carry in thousands of Bibles in Arabic Farsi and Urdu. They conveyed shipment after shipment into this region never losing a copy and surmounting all restrictions. Customs guards turned a blind eye. Tom distributed Bibles very simply walking around with a bag and waiting for people to ask him what he was doing. The Islamic world is widely regarded as closed to the gospel but this is simply untrue. Tom discovered an extensive network of believersvery few churches but many clandestine meetings for worshipand a huge hunger for the truth.

She had been there just three years when a coup occurred and the country descended into a state of civil war. It lasted for thirteen long years. During that time God directed her to work with the orphans and widows. She started a center for abandoned babies and traumatized children and saw the Lord performing remarkable miracles in the lives of people who had lost everything. Chrissie adopted three children herself and has raised more than fifty others to young adulthood. Again and again she has witnessed miracles of protection and provision. When the war started Chrissie her adopted children and the health staff were living in a rural location on top of a mountain in a healing center with maternity clinic and pharmacy. Every night there was gunfire and every day people would come seeking refuge. One night when she and David Ndarahutse the mission director were praying amid the fighting David said Chrissie look up. There were dozens of angels standing on top of the walls of the healing center. That was the night the angels came. From that moment on Chrissie records I have never experienced or felt fear for my life. Today Chrissie divides her time between Burundi where she continues to care for the teenagers in her charge and England Canada and America where she speaks widely about the faith- fulness and power of God. Chrissie Chapman is from Stockport England. She was led to faith by a doctor while in the hospital recovering from a severe accident. For years Chrissie has faced the challenges of life in Burundi in order to rescue and foster orphans from the long civil war and the AIDS epidemic. 16 BIOGR APHY ISBN 978-0-85721-722-6 9 7 8 0 8 5 7 2 1 7 2 2 6 The Night the Angels Came Miracles of Protection and Provision in Burundi Chrissie Chapman Mother of Malawi 978-0-85721-375-4 14.99 Have a Little Faith 978-0-85721-504-8 16.99 A tale of compassion and courage in the most trying of circumstances told with humor and modesty Great instances of miraculous provision and protection RELATED TITLES UNIQUE SELLING POINTS 978-0-7459-7029-5 17.95 Paperback 5 x 7.75 352 pages BIOGRAPHY AUTOBIOGRAPHY Religious Lion Books Rights NAR June 27 2016 The fascinating story of the man who created Thomas the Tank Engine and friendsnow in paperback The stories of Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends have delighted generations of children and adults but what do we know of the man who created them A devoted pastor and family man the Reverend W.

The chronicler-theologian thus composed his work not just as a history of his people from their ancient beginnings but as an interpreted history one designed to offer hope to the beleaguered community as well as to issue warnings that should they fall back into the ways of their fathers they could expect the judgment of God to be repeated. Eugene Merrills work on 1 and 2 Chronicles promises to be a significant contribution to the academic dialogue on these important books. This volume is helpful for the scholar but acces- sible and useful for the pastor. Merrill provides an exegetical study of each passage in these books examining a number of themes especially drawing out three principal theological subjects 1 David and his historical and eschatological reign 2 the renewal of the everlasting covenant and 3 the new temple as a symbol of a reconstituted people. Merrill offers astute guidance to preachers and teachers in his insightful doctrinal commentary on the text. Eugene H.

Against such there is no law. Galatians 52223 How can we experience the reality of Gods presence in our lives This practical book shows that the fruit of the Spirit can put life into your faith and faith into your life. With his characteristic conversational approach Don Aycock shows readers how as believers they can develop an attitude that is sensitive to others a life that is free from the dominance of sin and an outlook that is eternal in perspective. He argues that the key is to choose to keep in daily step with the Spirit of God and outlines just how to do that. As Aycock points out to walk in the Spirit means to live in trust in and act on what you know as the truth of God and to continually choose the way of spiritual life. An accessible and profound approach to spiritual growth Living by the Fruit of the Spirit will be useful not only for the indi- vidual but for any church or group doing ongoing Bible study. The fruit of the Spirit are precisely the steadying and energizing forces that help Christians walk and live in the present world. They have to do with our inner lives of faith and devotion with our relationships with others around us and with our love for the heavenly Father. As such these matters represent some of the most basic of Christian ethics values and virtues. ... A sound spiritual life will contain not some but all of these elements to some degree. It is like a hub with many spokes or a tree with many branches. The goal is to seek the fruit of the Spirit as a unified whole instead of as a fragmented piecemeal vision. from the Introduction Don M.
