Prime Rib & Apple by Jill Briscoe( Book )

3 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prime rib" was chosen from among all the others in Adam's rib cage for a very special task. "Omnipotence" freed her from her humble origin in Adam's "cage" to bring more joy to Adam as she yielded and responded to him of her own free will -- more than she could do as a mere piece of bone without the power of choice. "Prime rib" was not to be a "spare rib," but a personal, rational, moral being, free forever to choose to fit back into Adam's life. In her creatively written account of Adam and Eve, Jill Briscoe opens the door to an entirely new, totally unique and clever study of "prime ribs" in the Old Testament

But who doesn't struggle with a "Moses moment" now and then? Discover his secret to get beyond your own feelings of inadequacy. This valuable study, designed for both women and men, also includes "Discovery" and "Discussion" questions for personal growth or group studies

Jill pulls no punches in challenging Christian readers to do their part, Spiritual Arts is a discovery study of practices we need to learn if we are to live life as God intended-full of great joy, deeper intimacy with God, and an exciting impact in the lives of others. With patience, wit, and probing questions, Jill challenges the faithful to a different ethic and a more active, focused way to follow Christ
