  • Siete Hombres – (Spanish)

    $16.99

    En Siete Hombres, Eric Metaxas, uno de los autores mas leidos del New York Times, presenta siete retratos cortos exquisitamente elaborados sobre hombres cristianos ampliamente conocidos -aunque no del todo comprendidos-, cada uno de los cuales demuestra de forma singular su compromiso de vivir, bajo determinadas virtudes, en la verdad del evangelio.

    Escrito en un hermoso y cautivador estilo, 7 Hombres aborda lo que significa (o deberia significar) ser un hombre en la actualidad, en donde los medios y la cultura popular nos muestran imagenes de masculinidad diferentes a las que observamos en las Escrituras y en la vida civil historica. Que significa realmente ser un modelo ejemplar como padre, hermano, esposo, lider, instructor, consejero, agente de cambio y hombre sabio? Que significa ser simbolo de honestidad, coraje y caridad, especialmente cuando la cultura y el mundo van en contra de esos valores?

    Cada una de las siete biografias representa la vida de un hombre que lucho y afronto desafios, haciendose fuerte ante circunstancias que hubieran acabado con la determinacion de cualquier otro hombre. Los siete personajes reseados -George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, Juan Pablo II y Charles Colson- invitan al lector a seguir un camino y un estilo de vida superior, uno que sea reflejo del evangelio en el mundo que nos rodea.

    In Siete Hombres, New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas presents seven exquisitely crafted short portraits of widely known-but not well understood-Christian men, each of whom uniquely showcases a commitment to live by certain virtues in the truth of the gospel.

    Written in a beautiful and engaging style, Siete Hombres addresses what it means (or should mean) to be a man today, at a time when media and popular culture present images of masculinity that are not the picture presented in Scripture and historic civil life. What does it take to be a true exemplar as a father, brother, husband, leader, coach, counselor, change agent, and wise man? What does it mean to stand for honesty, courage, and charity, especially at times when the culture and the world run counter to those values?

    Each of the seven biographies represents the life of a man who experienced the struggles and challenges to be strong in the face of forces and circumstances that would have destroyed the resolve of lesser men. Each of the seven men profiled-George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric

  • Fe De Barack Obama – (Spanish)

    $14.99

    Discover the unapologetically Christian and liberal Barack Obama-and how he represents the changing face of religion in American politics.

    You’d have to live in a cave to have avoided hearing about Barack Obama’s woes as he deals with the crises arising from the close mentor relationship he had with the senior pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ, Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. How, people ask, could Sen. Obama represent as president people of all races, when he attended for 20 years a church permeated by a defining, if understandable, spirit of anger toward white America? There is, however, much more to the senator’s faith than this one issue. As early as 1994, as he delivered a powerful speech to the Democratic National Convention in Boston, he was taking a stand for his faith: “We worship an awesome God in the Blue States… Those of us on the political Left who believe in a woman’s right to choose an abortion and who defend the rights of our gay friends and who care for the poor and who trust that big government can be a tool of righteousness-we also love God… No longer will we be painted as the non-believers” In The Faith of Barack Obama, Stephen Mansfield explores Obama’s religious faith without political or ideological bias. Because if a man’s faith is sincere, it is the most important thing about him, and it is impossible to understand who he is and how he will lead without first understanding the religious vision that informs his life.

    Descubra al Barack Obama que es cristiano y liberal sin ningun reparo en admitirlo -y como el representa el rostro cambiante de la religion en la politica estadounidense.

    Barack Obama enfrento ciertas tribulaciones mientras trataba con la crisis causada por su ex pastor, el doctor Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. ?Como pudo el senador Obama asistir durante 20 anos a una iglesia impregnada por un definitivo (aunque comprensible) espiritu de ira hacia los blancos de Estados Unidos? Hay, sin embargo, cosas mucho mas importantes en la fe del senador que tan solo este tema. En La fe de Barack Obama, Stephen Mansfield explora la fe religiosa de Obama sin inclinaciones politicas o ideologicas. Su premisa basica es esta:ASi la fe de un hombre es sincera, entonces es el factor que mas lo define. En consecuencia, es imposible entender como dirigira Barack Obama sin primero entender la vision religiosa que informa su vida.
