4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shedding a new light on perennial questions, Mrs. Achtemeier examines the contemporary state of marriage and family life from a Biblical point of view. With candor, clarity, and passion, the author provides insight into many sources of conflict within a marriage--from discipline of children to women's liberation. Viewing Christian marriage as a form of discipleship, she finds in it the key to freedom, order, and fulfillment. The Committed Marriage clarifies what a Christian marriage is and shows how both partners can handle the inevitable conflicts that threaten to shatter their relationship. It deals with Biblical teaching concerning fidelity, divorce, and the role of women."--Back cover

"This volume includes commentary on the first six books of the Minor Prophets: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah. Though varied in setting, style, audience, and theme, these books share at least one commonality: each is an imporant message from God. With interpretive skill and theological passion, Achtemeier helps the reader see the importance of these messages for today." -- Publisher's description

Nature, God, and pulpit by Elizabeth Achtemeier( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A book whose time has come, Nature, God, and Pulpit draws together and interprets, for the church and especially for preachers, the biblical materials on the relationship between God and his creation. The book is particularly timely because, as Elizabeth Achtemeier points out, few subjects have been more neglected and less explicated by this country's pulpits in recent years than the relation between nature and God. Clearly articulating what the Bible says about the natural world and God's relation to it, this book is all of the following: a thoughtful biblical response to recent discussions of ecology; a discerning corrective to many current theologies and ideologies; an appreciative summary of the findings and notions of modern science; a mother lode of materials and sample sermons on the relation of God to his creation; a passionate call for preachers to more thoroughly examine and articulate scriptural content; and an eloquent and inspiring celebration of God in relation to his world. While written primarily for preachers, Nature, God, and Pulpit will provide provocative reading for many others as well - seminarians, homiletics students, teachers, and anybody who wishes to better understand the Christian view of the bond between Creator and creation

Preaching from the Minor Prophets : texts and sermon suggestions by Elizabeth Achtemeier( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite the authority and theological richness of the twelve books of the Minor Prophets, these Old Testament writings are perennially neglected by the church and the pulpit. This volume was written to provide clergy with the tools to once again preach from these important texts with confidence and relevancy." "For each of the twelve Minor Prophets, Elizabeth Achtemeier provides a wealth of information useful for preparing a sermon: recommended commentaries, historical context, theological context, and sections dealing with selected texts. These sections include (1) a brief treatment of linguistic and rhetorical features to note, (2) suggested sermon titles designed to arouse the interest of a congregation, and (3) homiletical exposition intended to stimulate preachers as they develop their sermons."--Jacket
