Book Summary:

Advent is for adoring Jesus. The Christmas season is one of the busiest times of year. But it’s also a season of reflection and preparation for that special day when we mark Immanuel’s coming—the arrival of our eternal God in our own frail humanity. This is the greatest of history’s many wonders, something too stupendous to celebrate just on one day. Advent is a way of lengthening and intensifying the joy of Christmas. These 25 brief devotional readings from John Piper begin on December 1 and carry us to Christmas Day. Our hope is that God would use these meditations to deepen and sweeten your adoration of Jesus and help you keep him at the center of your Christmas season.

Book Summary:

In True Love Dates, Debra Fileta encourages singles not to “kiss dating goodbye” but instead to experience a season of dating as a way to find real love. Through reading powerful, real-life stories (including the author’s personal journey) and gaining insights from Fileta’s experience as a professional counselor, readers will discover that it ispossible to find true love through dating. Christians are looking for answers to finding true love. They are disillusioned with the church that has provided little practical application in the area of love and relationships. They’ve been bombarded by Christian books that shun dating, idolize courting, fixate on spirituality, and in the end offer little real relationship help. True Love Dates provides honest help for dating by guiding readers into vital relationship essentials for finding true love. Debra is a young, professional Christian counselor, and True Love Dates offer sound advice grounded in Christian spirituality. It delivers insight, direction, and counsel when it comes to entering the world of dating and learning to do it right the first time around. Drawing on the stories and struggles of hundreds of young men and women who have pursued finding true love, Fileta helps readers bypass unnecessary pain while focusing on the things that really matter in the world of dating.

Book Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • For the weary, the angry, the anxious, and the hopeful, this collection of moving, tender prayers offers rest, joyful resistance, and a call to act, written by Barbara Brown Taylor, Amena Brown, Nadia Bolz-Weber, and other artists and thinkers, curated by the author Glennon Doyle calls “my favorite faith writer.” It’s no secret that we are overworked, overpressured, and edging burnout. Unsurprisingly, this fact is as old as time—and that’s why we see so many prayer circles within a multitude of church traditions. These gatherings are a trusted space where people seek help, hope, and peace, energized by God and one another. This book, curated by acclaimed author Sarah Bessey, celebrates and honors that prayerful tradition in a literary form. A companion for all who feel the immense joys and challenges of the journey of faith, this collection of prayers says it all aloud, giving readers permission to recognize the weight of all they carry. These writings also offer a broadened imagination of hope—of what can be restored and made new. Each prayer is an original piece of writing, with new essays by Sarah Bessey throughout. Encompassing the full breadth of the emotional landscape, these deeply tender yet subversive prayers give readers an intimate look at the diverse language and shapes of prayer.

Book Summary:

What if there was something readers could do that could positively influence others and change their lives in the process? As 2009 approached, New Year's resolutions were the last thing on River Jordan's mind. Her sons were both about to go off to war and all she could do was pray for their safety and hope to maintain her strength, until she unexpectedly came upon the perfect New Year's resolution-one that focused on others instead of herself. She would pray for a complete stranger every single day for a year. In Praying for Strangers, River Jordan tells of her amazing personal journey of uncovering the needs of the human heart as she prayed her way through the year for people she had never met before. The discovery that Jordan made along the journey was not simply that her prayers touched the lives of these strangers, but that the unexpected connections she made with other people would be a profound experience that would change her life forever.

Book Summary:

Modern research is uncovering more and more detail of what our brain is and how it works. We are living, thinking creatures who carry around with us an amazing organic supercomputer in our heads. But what is the relationship between our brains and our minds-and ultimately our sense of identity as a person? Are we more than machines? Is free-will an illusion? Do we have a soul? Brain Imaging Scientist Sharon Dirckx lays out the current understanding of who we are from biologists, philosophers, theologians and psychologists, and points towards a bigger picture that suggests answers to the fundamental questions of our existence. Not just "What am I?", but "Who am I?"-and "Why am I?" Read this book to gain valuable insight into what modern research is telling us about ourselves, or to give a sceptical friend to challenge the idea that we are merely material beings living in a material world.

A follow-on to the highly successful Prayer for the Day Volume I, this second volume brings together 365 selected readings from the much-loved, long-running series on BBC Radio 4. The programme, which has been broadcast daily at 5:43am for several decades, and continues to attract over half a million dedicated listeners, comprises a short 2-minute reflection to start your day. These artfully combine traditional forms of prayer and reflection, from a variety of religions and denominations, with contemporary issues and themes that are often relevant to the date on which the programme is broadcast. In keeping with the theme of 'Prayer for the Day', there are 365 reflections in the book, from a vast range of the eminent religious figures and broadcasters who have contributed to the programme over the years. There will be a foreword by a prominent figure in the faith community, a short profile of each contributor and an index of contributors. To emphasise the point that the reflections can be used daily, they are ordered by date (i.e. 1st January, 2nd January etc), and each entry is selected on the basis of it being as date-specific as possible. The date of broadcast is underneath each entry, and dates are also marked at the top corners of each page so they can be found easily. The spacious design includes page openers for each month with simple line illustrations. Prayer for the Day Volume II is a beautiful and inspirational addition to any bedside table, with religious meditations that both participate in the ecumenical spirit of the 21st century and equip you perfectly for each day's journey.

  • File Pdf: praying-your-way-through-luke-s-gospel-and-the-acts-of-the-apostles.pdf

Book Summary:

Prayer, the raising of the heart to God, is the heart of the Christian life. For the author of Luke's Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles, prayer is the habit of being in the presence of God. One of the primary ways Jesus is characterized in Luke's Gospel is that of a pray-er. Likewise in the Acts of the Apostles, the apostles are portrayed being in God's presence. Prayer is the topic of this book; it highlights the passages where Jesus is found praying in the Gospel and where the apostles are found praying in the Acts. From the example Jesus gives in Luke's Gospel, and from the example the apostles give in the Acts of the Apostles, the reader concludes that prayer should be a part of the life of any Christian. If Jesus himself prayed--spoke and listened to God--then how can his followers do any less? This book can be used during the Advent-Christmas Season, the Lenten Season, the Easter Season, and at any time one wants to hone his or her praying skills. This book is especially useful during the period of post-baptismal catechesis for those in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults with its focus on spiritual growth through prayer.

Book Summary:

This book is the story of being married to an unbeliever. It is the story of a wifes forty-year prayer journey, praying for her husbands salvation, her lifelong struggles in the marriage, and remaining faithful in prayer. It is the story of Gods faithfulness to hear and answer prayer in His time. It is the story of a God who loves without measure and walks with us when in the furnace of affliction. It is the story of an ordinary woman with a tenacious determination to not give up on her God-given assignment to pray. It is the story of faith rewarded, missions accomplished, and the power of prayer. It is the story of how God gives joy for our journeys and grace as we wait upon Him. The vision is yet for the appointed time: It hastens towards the goal, and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it. Habakkuk 2:3

Book Summary:

With 80 million grandparents in the United States, you are one of many seniors searching for help in being a Godly grandparent. Pass the Legacy: 7 Keys for Grandparents Making a Difference is a book to encourage, inform and equip you in your important role while living in a culture that tells you your purpose is minimal. Many seniors desire to be Godly grandparents of their families. They simply do not know how. As you read this book, you will be empowered to live into the utmost calling God has on your life: to pass a legacy of faith in Jesus Christ to your grandchildren. What an awesome calling for someone living in a generation that struggles to find purpose in life. As you grab “The Seven Keys”, prepare to run an amazing race with the Lord. You will be living into His calling for you. Are you worried about your lovely granddaughter as she navigates this tumultuous world? Maybe you are concerned about your grown son. He seems to be moving farther and farther from the Lord. Then check out these “Seven Keys”. They are basic steps that can propel you towards leaving the most precious legacy of all: a legacy of faith in the Lord. FIRST KEY: Surrender Your Heart to Jesus Christ In order to pass a legacy of faith you must BE a person of faith! People are in one of three categories: those living in Egypt, those wandering around the desert or those abiding in the Promised Land. Discern which category describes you and learn the next step towards a life surrendered to the Lord. SECOND KEY: Read the Bible Daily Since we live in a noisy world, we must choose to set aside Quiet Time. By daily resting in God’s Word, we strengthen our spirits. Learn effective ways to delve into the Bible so that you can implement these Godly truths into your life. Then you will be powerfully prepared to encourage faith in your loved ones. THIRD KEY: Pray Fervently “Babushka Time”! Be like the Russian grandmothers in World War II who fell to their knees praying fervently for their loved ones. Discover powerful ways to prayerfully protect and guide the children and grandchildren the Lord has placed in your life and under your care. FOURTH KEY: Pursue Healthy Relationships with Loved Ones In a culture crowded with smart phones, computers and heavy schedules; relationships are diminished. This key encourages and equips grandparents and parents with grown children to run hard after healthy relationships with their children so that they can pass faith in Christ to the next generation. FIFTH KEY: Heal Broken Relationships We live in a tumultuous world. Many of us have strained, or broken, relationships with our children and grandchildren. Learn three steps towards resolving issues and mending broken relationships with loved ones. SIXTH KEY: Leave a Well-Written Legacy of Love With the world becoming heavily infiltrated by technology, the written word is decreasing. Study ways to write letters, create journals and scribe blessings to family members such that you communicate God’s love to your children and grandchildren. SEVENTH KEY: Pass Your Faith Every person has a God-story to tell. Maybe your story is how you accepted the Lord when you were eight years old, or forty eight years old. Maybe your God-story is that you have always struggled with faith in Christ. Regardless, you have a story that is worthy to be told to your children and grandchildren. God’s highest vision for grandparents is to pass a legacy of faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, to your loved ones. In this world where most seniors retire, God is calling YOU to become a life-changer in the lives of your children and grandchildren. You can make a difference by impacting their hearts for the Lord. Grab these keys and run the race marked divinely for you by God. Never has there been a more important job to do. Never has the need been more urgent.

Book Summary:

Gary Brausen was a hockey player, runner, and bicyclist. He maintained a healthy diet and did not smoke. But six months after his fiftieth birthday, the doctors told him he had an aggressive form of lung cancer. The prognosis was bleak. Three oncologists said his case was terminal and told Gary to get his affairs in order. God’s will is to heal disease, yet too many people go home to heaven through the pathway of illness. How can we love Jesus so recklessly in the process that we leave nothing on the table when asking for healing except His sovereignty? Praying for Healing while Planning a Funeral confronts our often double-minded approach to lean on the counsel of man instead of the promises of God—losing sight of His miraculous nature as our faithful, loving, merciful God. Learn how you can • Fight tenaciously because your hope comes from the Lord. • Seek the heart of God so you don’t bow to terminal illness. • Not be afraid to pursue the miraculous. • Trust God to sustain you whether healing occurs in this life or the next. Praying for Healing while Planning a Funeral is not just about hope; it is about digging in and standing strong as God teaches you how to fight His way.

Book Summary:

It is not a question that marriages today, especially in this country, are under attack. The sacred union between man and woman through the lenses of our nation has seemingly lost its value and respect amid a growing culture that has degraded its significance—this is an epidemic in its own right. Like-Minds: Two Hearts, One Mind, One God—Rediscovering the Value of Marriage is a book that attempts to act as a clarion call; to refocus man’s attention and heart back to biblical principles carried out by both husband and wife. God is the Creator of all things, including marriage. Like any creation, God has in Mind the purpose of the creation before He creates it. Minister Julien Folks passionately shares insight on helping young singles and married couples understand that God has a methodology in revealing His plan and purpose within His marriage covenant. Throughout this book, readers will identify one underlining principle: “How the marriage thinks as one in Christ propels them through every difficulty with a new perspective in God.” In his first book, Like-Minds: Two Hearts, One Mind, One God—Rediscovering the Value of Marriage, the author shares solid scriptural support, personal challenges, and experiences to outline the process and spiritual journey both husband and wife must commit to in ensuring an overall healthy, sustaining, and successful marriage. Join countless others who are rediscovering the purpose of marriage while learning practical and necessary tools to engage Two Hearts, through One Mind, in One God.

Book Summary:

Fruit of the Vine: A Biblical Spirituality of Wine is designed to help the reader grow in spirituality through reflecting on biblical vineyard stores, wine making, and wine as a metaphor for life. A spirituality of wine--categorized as a spirit--connects the spirit in wine to the universal spirit all share. Wine appeals to all five senses. Its bouquet can be smelled; its complexity, often compared to fruit, can be tasted; its shades of red, designating its body, can be seen as it clings to or quickly runs down the inside of a glass. One can hear the pop as the cork leaves the bottle's neck and the gurgle of the wine leaving the bottle as it is poured into a glass. Wine is a major sign of transformation in the process of growth from blossom, sunlight, and water to grapes, which are in turn broken apart, integrated into a whole, and fermented into alcohol. While the wine is aged, it undergoes even more transformation. People are transformed when they share this already multiple-times-transformed beverage. The vineyard and all it produces can reveal the divine if a person but opens his or her eyes to see.

Book Summary:

A book of reflections, meditations and prayers for Advent and Christmas, Lent, Holy Week and Easter, Ascension and Pentecost. This book began as a birthday gift. For her 50th birthday Ruth asked her family not for material presents, but for gifts of time and experiences. What followed included long talks with her father about the deep stories of their shared spiritual journey. John and Ruth write: 'It has been a privilege to spend time in each other's company around the kitchen table and in a chilly Glasgow study. For us it has been a profound experience. We hope that in sharing a part of this story, it may encourage others on a similar journey of shared gifts and faith.' John Harvey is a retired minister of the Church of Scotland who was part of the experimental Gorbals Group Ministry. He has been a member of the Iona Community since 1964, and has served as Warden of Iona Abbey and as Leader of the Community. Ruth Harvey is the Leader of the Iona Community. Previously she was Director of Place for Hope, a Scottish charity accompanying churches and faith communities through times of challenge, change and conflict. She is a minister in the Church of Scotland and a Quaker. 'This book will welcome you home, with justice, courage, humour and delight.' Padraig O Tuama, former Leader of the Corrymeela Community
