  • Bible True Relevant Or A Fairy Tale


    The Bible is constantly condemned as outdated, legalistic and irrelevant, yet it’s widely owned and cherished worldwide. Despite ownership it often lies unread and scarcely believed, even by Christians. The reason – it’s not accepted as the infallible word of God, but worse many reject it as fictitious and immaterial.

    This book directly addresses the truth and relevance of the Bible and questions issues such as:

    – Was there really a talking snake in the Garden of Eden?

    – How could Moses possibly write a factual account of creation 2,500 years after the event?

    – Are abortion and homosexuality ok?

    – Are Heaven and Hell real places?

    – Are God and Allah the same God?

    – What is the Trinity?

    Robert skilfully demonstrates the answers through direct scripture quotation with little writer’s bias.

    Paul tells Timothy; “all scripture is God breathed” and in Genesis we read; “God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” If the followers of Jesus inhale the God breathed scriptures their souls will truly abound with life. This book sets out to inspire Christians to believe God at his word.

    4. God The Father
    5. God Who Wins

    When a disaster happens; when personal tragedy strikes; when we are perplexed by world events, Christians can begin to doubt that God is either truly good, or truly in control.

    Christopher Ash faces these questions head on, without flinching at any of the difficulties. First he looks at six different ways people have answered this question – both as Christians and from other religions and none. He then reveals the Bible’s answer: the revelation of God’s character and purposes throughout history.

  • Examination Of Conscience Of The Understanding


    Seeking his own utmost depth of comprehensive understanding, the author sets out to prove empirically that God exists. The seed of proof is the Birth Paradox, its florescence a faith grounded in his spirituality disposed soul: As empirically real as his conscious self, as mathematically certain as the probability laws of genetic science, as necessary as that the universe requires a creator for its rational possibility, as immanently intuitive as the Divine Allegory he mirrors.

    The Birth Paradox is the contingency of personal conscious existence on the body. Is there any scientific or commonsense belief as certain of itself? And yet, as a practical proposition, it is an utterly impossible conjunction! Personal consciousness is necessary specific to its own experience, a subtly profound tautology! How is it, then, that one’s necessary being can be dependent on a chance body?

  • God In The New Testament


    Warren Carter addresses how New Testament writings construct their presentation of God using narrative and thematic approaches. Chapters will discuss Matthew’s Gospel, Luke-Acts, John’s Gospel (and letters), Paul, post-Pauline letters, Hebrews, and Revelation. In addition there will be a chapter on the Catholic Epistles. The author uses four questions to show how God is presented:
    How is God presented in relation to Israel?
    How is God presented in relation to Jesus and the Spirit?
    How is God presented in relation to believers/disciples/the church?
    How is God presented in relation to “the world” (both material creation and humanity)?
    The approach is not to impose these questions, grid-like, on the material but to use them to surface the important factors of each writing’s emphases.

    9. Knowledge, Love, And Mission

    Additional Info
    What do the saints have to do with truth? Saints and their concern for holiness are often relegated to the realm of spirituality or kitsch, while the search for truth is reserved for the intellectual elite. Truth and spirituality appear to be utterly separate categories.

    Hans Urs von Balthasar (1905-1988) set out to reunite truth and holiness by returning the saints to their proper place at the heart of philosophy, theology, and metaphysics. Love Itself Is Understanding is one of the first systematic treatments of Balthasar’s theology of the saints. Matthew Rothaus Moser presents Balthasar as an alternative to Idealist philosophy, a thinker who develops a religious metaphysics in which the saints’ practices of prayer and contemplation are the chief mode of knowing that the truth of Being is divine love. Love Itself Is Understanding casts new light on dominant themes in Balthasar’s thought and invites a renewed vision of the theological and metaphysical significance of the spiritual practices of prayer, obedience, and charity.

  • Uncontrolling Love Of God


    Can we say God is all-controlling if evil is genuine and randomness is real? If God is capable of controlling any situation or person and is both willing and able to stop evil from occurring, how do we make sense of the cruel and unpredictable realities of life? Should we say that suffering is necessary to build character? Are random events of death and destruction really “acts of God”? Some say that God is the cause of everything, which commits them to the view that nothing is truly random and every act of evil is part of God’s master plan. Others say that God is an impersonal force or a distant observer and so not truly involved in worldly events?but this comes at the price of a God who is personally involved in our lives and to whom we can pray. Still others say that God is sovereign but we cannot know how, because God is a mystery. This leaves us without an answer to our questions. Thomas Jay Oord argues that we need a new understanding of providence, one that can account for a world of both awful evil and awe-inspiring goodness. The Uncontrolling Love of God provides a clear and powerful response to one of the perennial challenges to Christian faith.

  • Holy Spirit


    Much more than a personal experience, the Holy Spirit is who God is and what God does as the Trinity, whether we feel it or not. It is the birthday of the church as created through the Spirit, giving the church the task of pointing the world to Jesus. This book will help people recognize what an extraordinary thing has happened to them through baptism and their inclusion in the Body of Christ through the Spirit But to do this the authors will challenge some of the presumptions surrounding discussions about the Spirit in terms of how the work of the Spirit is understood as “inspirational.” In other words, this book will help people recover a sense of why the Spirit is the third person of the Trinity and how that reality makes possible our inclusion in the Body of Christ in a manner that challenges some of the individualistic and subjectivist accounts of the Spirit’s work.

  • Love Of God


    For God so loved the world . . . We believe these words, but what do they really mean? Does God choose to love, or does God love necessarily? Is God’s love emotional? Does the love of God include desire or enjoyment? Is God’s love conditional? Can God receive love from human beings? Attempts to answer these questions have produced sharply divided pictures of God’s relationship to the world. One widely held position is that of classical theism, which understands God as necessary, self-sufficient, perfect, simple, timeless, immutable and impassible. On this view, God is entirely unaffected by the world and his love is thus unconditional, unilateral and arbitrary. In the twentieth century, process theologians replaced classical theism with an understanding of God as bound up essentially with the world and dependent on it. In this view God necessarily feels all feelings and loves all others, because they are included within himself. In The Love of God, John Peckham offers a comprehensive canonical interpretation of divine love in dialogue with, and at times in contrast to, both classical and process theism. God’s love, he argues, is freely willed, evaluative, emotional and reciprocal, given before but not without conditions. According to Peckham’s reading of Scripture, the God who loves the world is both perfect and passible, both self-sufficient and desirous of reciprocal relationships with each person, so that “whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

  • What Your Body Knows About God


    Have you ever had an experience where you felt particularly aware of God? If God is real, and we are created in God’s image, then it makes sense that our minds and bodies would be designed with the perceptive ability to sense and experience God. Scientists are now discovering ways that our bodies are designed to connect with God. Brain research shows that our brain systems are wired to enable us to have spiritual experiences. The spiritual circuits that are used in prayer or worship are also involved in developing compassion for others. Our bodies have actually been created to love God and serve our neighbors. Award-winning journalist Rob Moll chronicles the fascinating ways in which our brains and bodies interact with God and spiritual realities. He reports on neuroscience findings that show how our brains actually change and adapt when engaged in spiritual practices. We live longer, healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives when we cultivate the biological spiritual capacity that puts us in touch with God. God has created our bodies to fulfill the Great Commandment; we are hardwired to commune with God and to have compassion and community with other people. Moll explores the neuroscience of prayer, how liturgy helps us worship, why loving God causes us to love others, and how a life of love and service leads to the abundant life for which we were created. Just as our physical bodies require exercise to stay healthy, so too can spiritual exercises and practices revitalize our awareness of God. Heighten your spiritual senses and discover how you have been designed for physical and spiritual flourishing.

  • Unfolding Of Thy Love


    How can a finite human being understand God who is infinite in every way beyond this universe? We can only know God and His great love by His own Revelation, or unfolding, of Himself. God the constant GREAT I AM is beyond our ever changing perception of reality. The continuous unfolding of the Divine Revelation of His love is the journey of our hearts that requires the illuminating power of the Holy Spirit – who searches all things and even the heart of God – who will lead us to that eternal converging point of all of our desires and destinies in all history: Jesus Christ, our One True King and the High Priest of the Universe.

    This book is a spiritual weapon of the unchanging, eternal Word of God that systematically destroys all fear, doubt, hatred and evil in our hearts in order for us to take the first revolutionary step in taking hold of all surpassing and conquering love of Christ for which He has taken hold of all of His people for all eternity…

  • 3 In One


    A tree is more than its various parts, and those parts nourish us in different ways. Just so, God is more than the Father who gives life; the Son who came to earth and lived, died, and rose again for our salvation; and the Holy Spirit, the power and life of God within the hearts of those who love God. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit make themselves known to us in very different ways, and yet they are all God. God provides for us the nourishment we need to live full and happy lives.

  • Cosmic Bully : Discovering The True Character Of God


    How do we fear God and love Him at the same time? Does God endorse genocide? How can a loving God send people to a place where they burn forever? Is God just waiting to bring judgment upon anyone who messes up? The Bible provides numerous examples of a God who seems to have a mean streak. He wiped out most of humanity with a flood, brought enormous devastation to His own children, and plans to judge the whole earth in the future. Individuals in the Bible have also experienced God’s wrath, including a man who touched a wooden container, another man who picked up sticks on the wrong day, and a couple church goers who lied about a business transaction. How can God be good in the midst of all this judgment? Is He simply using judgment to manipulate us into doing His will? If this is the case, He is no more than a Cosmic Bully. What if we have God all wrong? Does God have a reasonable defense against such accusations? What is God’s perspective and what was He trying to accomplish through these judgments? Did he have good reasons for doing what He did? God followers need good answers to these questions because if they are unable to show that God is good in spite of many difficult Bible passages, then how deep is their faith?

    Additional Info
    The doctrine of the Trinity was settled in the fourth century, and maintained, with only very minor disagreement or development, by all strands of the church–Western and Eastern, Protestant and Catholic–until the modern period. In the twentieth century, there arose a sense that the doctrine had been neglected and stood in need of recovery. In The Quest for the Trinity, Holmes takes us on a remarkable journey through 2,000 years of the Christian doctrine of God. We witness the churchs discovery of the Trinity from the biblical testimony, its crucial patristic developments, and medieval and Reformation continuity. We are also confronted with the questioning of traditional dogma during the Enlightenment, and asked to consider anew the character of the modern Trinitarian revival. Holmess controversial conclusion is that the explosion of theological work in recent decades claiming to recapture the heart of Christian theology in fact deeply misunderstands and misappropriates the traditional doctrine of the Trinity. Yet his aim is constructive: to grasp the wisdom of the past and, ultimately, to bring a clearer understanding of the meaning of the present.

  • God : The Sources Of Christian Theology


    An authoritative examination of important source materials on the development of the Christian doctrine of God

    This volume provides an excellent collection of primary source documents from key Christian theologians that show ways in which God has been understood throughout the history of Christian thought. Malcolm surveys the major features which have marked theological understandings of God throughout six distinct periods, including the early church, the medieval era, the Reformation, modernity, the twentieth-century, and the present day. She describes the historical contexts and theological relevance of each of these works, which have helped shape the various ways Christians have come to understand God. This book will be particularly valuable to students of theology by providing significant insights from these important and accessible texts.

  • Eternal Generation Of The Son


    Should all Christians, especially evangelicals, hold on to the doctrine of the eternal generation of the Son? What is lost if we don’t? Theologian Kevin Giles defends the historically orthodox and ecumenical doctrine of the eternal generation of the Son of God. He argues on biblical, historical and theological bases that, given its fundamental meaning, this formulation is indispensable, irreplaceable and faithful to Christian revelation. The book will be especially helpful in the current discussion of this doctrine. It will also be of interest to students, pastors and laypersons who want to delve into the Christian understanding of the identity of the Son of God and serious study of trinitarian theology.

  • Forsaken : The Trinity The Cross And Why It Matters


    My God, My God, why have you forsaken me? How should a Christian interpret this passage? What implications does the cross have for the trinitarian theology? Did the Father kill the Son? Theologian Thomas McCall presents a trinitarian reading of Christ’s darkest moment–the moment of his prayer to his heavenly Father from the cross. McCall revisits the biblical texts and surveys the various interpretations of Jesus cry, ranging from early church theologians to the Reformation to contemporary theologians. Along the way, he explains the terms of the scholarly debate and clearly marks out what he believes to be the historically orthodox point of view. By approaching the Son’s cry to the Father as an event in the life of the Triune God, Forsaken calls the church to a new reverence for the cross.

    How can there be three Gods and yet only one God?

    Have you ever groaned inwardly at a question like this? Many of us find the doctrine of the Trinity that God is three persons sharing one nature difficult to get our heads round, and frankly a bit embarrassing. What is more, we seem to get by without thinking about it too deeply.

    But in reality, the Trinity is at the heart of all that Christians believe. The nature of God as a Trinity gives shape to all Christian truth, and to the gospel that we believe and proclaim. And rather than be a source of embarrassment, properly understood, it should fill us with joy.

    This book aims to help you see how the Trinity is fantastically good news. Because the trinity means that God is not remote and uninvolved quite the opposite. God sent His Son and His Spirit into our world to draw us into a wonderful relationship with Himself. This is the God who gives meaning and joy to our lives.

    And along the way we discover that the Trinity answers other big questions: How can we know God? What happened at the cross? What does it mean to be human? How can people live together with all their differences? What does mission look like in a fragmented world?

    Tim Chester will take us deeper into understanding the thrilling triune nature of God. In short accessible chapters he takes us through the Bibles teaching on the Trinity; gives us an overview of the important arguments over the trinity that have taken place throughout Christian history; and lays out the practical implications for our Christian lives.

  • Which Trinity Whose Monotheism


    The last few decades have witnessed a renaissance of Trinitarian theology. Theologians have worked to recover this doctrine for a proper understanding of the God and for the life of the church. At the same time, analytic philosophers of religion have become keenly interested in the Trinity, engaging in vigorous debates related to it. To this point, however, the work of the two groups has taken place in almost complete isolation from one another. Which Trinity? Whose Monotheism? Seeks to bridge that divide. / Thomas H. McCall compares the work of significant philosophers of religion – Richard Swinburne, Brian Leftow, and others – with that of influential theologians such as Ji 1/2rgen Moltmann, Robert Jenson, and John Zizioulas. He then evaluates several important proposals and offers suggestion for the future of Trinitarian theology. / There are many books on the doctrine of the Trinity, but no other book brings the concerns of analytic philosophers of religion into direct conversation with those of mainstream theologians.

  • Disturbing Divine Behavior


    How should we understand biblical texts where God is depicted as acting irrationally, violently, or destructively? If we distance ourselves from disturbing portrayals of God, how should we understand the authority of Scripture? How does the often wrathful God portrayed in the Old Testament relate to the God of love proclaimed in the New Testament? Is that contrast even accurate?

    Disturbing Divine Behavior addresses these perennially vexing questions for the student of the Bible. Eric A. Seibert calls for an engaged and discerning reading of the Old Testament that distinguishes the particular literary and theological goals achieved through narrative characterizations of God from the rich understanding of the divine to which the Old Testament as a whole points. Providing illuminating reflections on theological reading as well, this book will be a welcome resource for any readers who puzzle over disturbing representations of God in the Bible.

  • Biography Of The Holy Trinity And Man


    If you’re like most people you have questions about God that are difficult to find answers for. But, there are answers to some of these and other intriguing, and sometimes troubling, questions about life inside this book in easy-to-understand language. This book is designed to lessen some of the mystery of God. God wants us to know more about Him and His plans for us. God wants us to know about His Son, Christ Jesus, and exactly what He did for us then and what He does for us now. God wants us to know about His power, the Holy Spirit, and what He does. God wants us to understand how we are viewed by Him and how we fit into His overall plans. He wants us to see ourselves, the condition that we have, and the position that we are in. God wants us to understand that there must be a faithful and productive relationship between Him and us if we are to please Him. And we must have a solid understanding of how that relationship itself works. It is extremely important that we know what sin is and how it affects our relationship with Him. He wants and expects us to know all these things. God has never wanted to remain a total mystery to us because we cannot serve Him if He is a total mystery. Therefore, this book explains to the undecided, enlightens the newly converted, and reinforces for those already “born again” the necessity of understanding the relationship between God and themselves. Also, you will come to know that there are choices that must be made that only you can make. But they will not be as difficult to make once you have a better understanding of the relationship between God and man.

  • Speaking Of God


    D. Stephen Long here addresses a key question in current theological debate: the conditions of the possibility of “God-talk,” along with attending questions about natural theology, fideism, and theological truth-claims. He engages not only the most significant contemporary theologians and philosophers on this score (Denys Turner, Bruce Marshall, John Milbank, Charles Taylor, Fergus Kerr) but also the legacy of twentieth-century theology (Barth, von Balthasar) and the analytic philosophical tradition from Wittgenstein to Davidson. Throughout, Long sustains a careful exegetical engagement with Aquinas, showing that what’s at stake in contemporary theology is just how we inherit St. Thomas.

    In joining all of these voices into one conversation, Long does a remarkable job of surveying the current theological scene with respect to issues of language and truth, arguing for the need to deal head-on with classical questions of metaphysics. Central to his project is averting the charge of “fideism” so often laid at the feet of “postliberal” approaches (like Long’s). To that end Long argues for a (chastened) natural theology, while challenging any simple distinction between “natural” and “confessional” theology.

  • Authority And Power Of Gods Word


    Both the Bible and Jesus Christ are identified as the Word of God. The Bible is God’s written Word; Jesus is God’s personal Word. Our relationship to the one determines our relationship to the other. When considering the word authority, we need to recognize that its root word is author. Only the author can vouch for the authority of his writing. So, too, must we consult with the Author, the Holy Spirit, if we wish to know: * the attitude of Jesus to the Old Testament * how Jesus endorsed the authority of Scripture * the many ways Jesus’ life fulfilled Scripture * God’s Word as a two-edged sword * eight effects of God’s Word

  • How To Explain The Trinity


    When was the last time you heard a sermon at church entitled “How to Explain the Trinity”? For nearly all of us, the answer to that question is “never.” This is what you should expect. I would not try to explain to you how to fix an automobile engine. I don’t KNOW how to fix an automobile engine. Although I KNOW the engine works, I really don’t know “how” it works. Similarly, the Christian knows by a careful study of the scriptures that the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, but yet there is just one God, but doesn’t know how to explain that to you ……… until now! Not only is the Christian doctrine of the Trinity explainable, but it can be CLEARLY SEEN, and it can be UNDERSTOOD …. then you can explain it to your child using a puppet stage.

  • Identifying God : Who Is God And Who Are We In Him


    Do you know who God is? You may think you know, but you have no idea. God is not who you think He is. God is not who others say He is. God is who He said He is. “IDENTIFYING GOD” offers a biblical definition of the One True Deity. This Scriptural portrait of the character of God can be a tremendous help for new believers looking to foundationalize their faith. It can also be beneficial for established believers by filling in some of the gaps in their personal faith. Through this study you will discover … * The nature of God from the meanings of His biblical names. * Why the name of Jesus has authority over every name. * The ministry of God’s Holy Spirit, who works within you. In a world that is faced with a serious “identity crisis,” this book can help to settle much of your confusion by aligning your faith with “the King of kings, and the Lord of lords.”

  • Name Of God


    Throughout history, God has revealed Himself through many and various Names and Titles. Each of these have some distinctive feature about them. However, there is a Name which is above every Name, and this Name includes or comprehends in itself all the Names and Titles of God. It is the all-comprehensive Redemptive Name of God as revealed in the Triune Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    This volume endeavors to set forth the glory of the Triune Name of the Triune God. Its biblical insights are provocative, especially in the area of the application of “The Name” in Water Baptism.

  • Christianity Versus The God Of Calvin
