Searching the scriptures : find the nourishment your soul needs by Charles R Swindoll( Recording )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are you getting the spiritual nourishment you need? We have all experienced times when we have not eaten a balanced diet or have eaten too many sweets. We feel sick, light-headed, irritated, or edgy. It's the body's way of letting us know that it's lacking sucient nourishment. Optimal health requires optimal nutrition. The same is true spiritually speaking. Without sucient and regular biblical nutrition, our inner life begins to suer the consequences. We become shallow and selsh, more demanding and less gentle, and quick to react impatiently, rashly, and angrily. These are telltale signs of inner malnutrition. Respected Bible teacher Charles Swindoll shows us how to dig deep into scripture and uncover its profound truths. Too many people try to go it alone, without a guide for this life and the next. He explains how to x our spiritual meals and invites us to feast on nourishing truths in God's Word

The counselor : straight talk about the Holy Spirit by A. W Tozer( )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Straight talk about the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit is confined to creeds, the church becomes like a land with no water or a kite with no wind. In his life and writings, A.W. Tozer was insistent that the church reclaim a practical theology of the Holy Spirit-that it actually know Him. The Counselor will help you cultivate sweet communion with God. Gifted at bringing lofty thoughts down low, Tozer explains clearly who the Spirit is and what it means to know Him. His words will leave you with a deep longing to be filled with the blessed Spirit, to have joy, peace, life, and power in Him. "[The Holy Spirit] wants to be Lord of your life, to possess you so that you are no longer in command of the little vessel in which you sail."

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is our Christianity that of the New Testament? "God and men and their relation to each other-this I believe to be all that really matters in the world, and that is what I have written about here."--A.W. Tozer Like a physician running a biopsy on lifeless faith, here A.W. Tozer offers one of the most compelling critiques of feigned spirituality you may ever read. In Of God and Men, Tozer exposes false religious notions and lifts up true New-Testament Christianity. A loving and gentle critique of culture and even the church, it reveals lies we unknowingly believe, godless practices we unknowingly do, and treasures of Christ we unknowingly ignore. A manifesto of true religion, Of God and Men will set your foot on the narrow path and lift your heart in soaring worship
The doctrine of revelation by Arthur Walkington Pink( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present generation has, for the most part, been reared not only in an atmosphere of negative unbelief but of hostile unbelief. They live in a world where materialism and skepticism are rampant and dominant. In the great majority of homes the Sunday newspaper is the only thing read on the Lord's Day."Doubt as to moral and spiritual truth is distilled through a score of channels. Our seats of learning are hotbeds of agnosticism. Our literature, with rare exceptions, makes light of God and jokes about sacred things. The newspapers, the radio broadcasts, public utterances, and private conversations are steadily but surely removing the foundations of righteousness and destroying what little faith in spiritual things still remain."The vast majority in the English-speaking world are totally ignorant of the contents of the Bible, know not that it is a Divine revelation, yea, question whether there be any God at all. Yet modern skepticism is rarely candid but is rather a refuge in which multitudes are sheltering from an accusing conscience. With such we are not here concerned, for where a prejudiced mind and a caviling spirit obtain, argument is useless; and we can but leave them unto the sovereign mercy of the Lord."

Designed to lead : the church and leadership development by Eric Geiger( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most churches merely exist. Many churches do not develop leaders intentionally and consistently. When leaders emerge from some churches, it is often by accident. Something is missing. Something is off. Authors Eric Geiger (author of bestselling Simple Church and Creature of the Word) and Kevin Peckargue that churches that consistently produce leaders have a strong conviction to develop leaders, a healthy culture for leadership development, and helpful constructs to systematically and intentionally build leaders. All three are essential for leaders to be formed through the ministry of a local church. From the first recordings of history God has made it clear that He has designed creation to be led by His covenant people. More than that, He has decided what His people are to do with that leadership. Whether you are called to lead your home, in the marketplace, in God's church, or in your community, if you are called by God you are called to lead others to worship the glory of God in Jesus Christ. God has designed His people to lead
The bruised reed by Richard Sibbes( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Sibbes is widely considered to be one of the fathers of Puritanism in the seventeenth century. His passionate sermons and devotional works have persisted throughout the centuries and continue to influence modern-day scholars and people all over the world. Taken from Matthew 12:20, Sibbes explains what it means to be a "bruised reed." It is a metaphor which exemplifies the way in which God humbles sinners by allowing them to see sin in the way that he sees it--the lesson being that God sometimes wounds before healing, but with the ultimate goal of deepening our love for Christ. Sibbes believed very strongly that "God's love rests on Christ," and often spoke of the comfort to be gained by acknowledging this. He preached that the same can be had for those who live in Christ and seek redemption for their sins

Drawing from Scripture, church history, and theology, Thorn portrays the gospel in all its kaleidoscopic glory. He expounds its: -Contents-the basic message of Scripture culminating in Jesus -Details and definitions-the moving parts of the gospel truth -Practical implications-the basic marks of every gospel believer Without the gospel, the church does not exist. This book is Thorn's full and detailed exploration of the message that is indispensable to the church's life and identity
Between one faith and another : engaging conversations on the world's great religions by Peter Kreeft( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do we make sense of the world's different religions? In today's globalized society, religion is deeply intertwined with every issue we see on the news. But talking about multiple religions can be contentious. Are different faiths compatible somehow? And how can we know whether one religion is more true than another? In this creative thought experiment, Peter Kreeft invites us to encounter dialogues on the world's great faiths. His characters Thomas Keptic and Bea Lever are students in Professor Fesser's course on world religions, and the three explore the content and distinctive claims of each. Together they probe the plausibility of major religions, from Hinduism and Buddhism to Christianity and Islam. Along the way they explore how religions might relate to each other and to what extent exclusivism or inclusivism might make sense. Ultimately Kreeft gives us helpful tools for thinking fairly and critically about competing religious beliefs. If the religions are different kinds of music, do they together make harmony or cacophony? Decide for yourself
Climate church, climate world : how people of faith must work for change by Jim Antal( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate Church, Climate World argues that climate change is the greatest moral challenge humanity has ever faced. Hunger, refugees, poverty, inequality, deadly viruses, war-climate change multiplies all forms of global social injustice. Environmental leader Reverend Jim Antal presents a compelling case that it's time for the church to meet this moral challenge, just as the church addressed previous moral challenges. Antal calls for the church to embrace a new vocation so that future generations might live in harmony with God's creation. After describing how we have created the dangers our planet now faces, Antal urges the church to embrace a new vocation, one focused on collective salvation and an expanded understanding of the Golden Rule (Golden Rule 2.0). He suggests ways people of faith can reorient what they prize through new approaches to worship, preaching, witnessing and other spiritual practices that honor creation and cultivate hope

To mark the five-hundredth anniversary, historian Benjamin Wiker gives us The Reformation 500 Years Later, a straightforward account that rejects the common distortions of Catholic, Protestant, Marxist, Freudian, or secularist retellings of this world-changing event

That incredible Christian : how Heaven's children live on Earth by A. W Tozer( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Introduction: "Someone said that while Dr. A.W. Tozer always sought to introduce sinners to their Savior, he longed to help saints to see the greatness of God and to experience the life of victory and joy through surrender and faith. This theme-recognizing God for who He is, giving Him the worship and honor due Him-was particularly dominant in Dr. Tozer's late writings. To know God requires first of all a right relationship to Him. It requires time, and this we must give. It requires also faith and knowledge, and this God gives us as we humbly seek Him. And because we cannot know God apart from the illuminating Holy Spirit, we must welcome Him, allowing Him to indwell and possess us. The reader will find each chapter in this book complete in itself, and one may speak to him more than another. There is, however, progression, and the greater profit will come from at least one consecutive reading. The chapters were selected to instruct the heart that seeks to "follow on to know the Lord." Such a life may not be always easy, but at last it will be all that really matters. - Anita M. Bailey, former managing editor, the Alliance Witness

"In our quest to renew the church, Christians have walked through many movements to develop new expressions of the body of Christ. Now in the post-Christian world in North America we're asking the question again: Is there a way to be the church that engages the world, not by judgment nor accommodation but by becoming the good news in our culture? In Faithful Presence, noted pastor and scholar David Fitch offers a new vision for the witness of the church in the world through thoughtful reexamination of seven disciplines that the church has practiced since its inception"--Container
