Not the way it's supposed to be : a breviary of sin by Cornelius Plantinga( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in 5 languages and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plantinga's goal is to present a brief account -- a breviary -- of the nature and dynamics of sin and to renew our knowledge of a persistent reality. He defines sin as the destruction of shalom, the peace and harmony and blessedness God intended for creation. Creation is no longer the way it's supposed to be. Plantinga describes how sin corrupts what is good and how such corruption spreads. He discusses the parasitic quality of sin and the ironies and pretenses generated by this quality. He examines the relation of sin to folly and addiction. He concludes by describing two classic "postures" or movements of sin (attack and flight). An epilogue reminds us that whatever we say about sin also sharpens our eye for the beauty of grace

Engaging God's world : a Christian vision of faith, learning, and living by Cornelius Plantinga( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bible admonishes Christians to love God with the mind as well as with the heart. Engaging God's World clearly links this scriptural mandate with the pursuit of academic life, extolling the crucial role of Christian higher education in the intellectual and spiritual formation of believers. Chiefly intended to serve as a primer for students beginning college careers but valuable to thoughtful Christians at every stage of life, this volume spells out the central themes of the Christian faith from a Reformed perspective. More important, however, the book shows how Christian higher education fits inside a view of the world and of human life that is formed by these ideas. "Learning," Cornelius Plantinga writes, "is a spiritual calling; properly done, it attaches us to God." Approaching the topic of education from a variety of angles, Plantinga shows that Christ-centered learning teaches people to correctly see the world as God's creation, to see providence in history, to handle secular knowledge critically, to develop good judgment and, ultimately, to use faith-filled learning in the service of God's kingdom
Reading for preaching : the preacher in conversation with storytellers, biographers, poets, and journalists by Cornelius Plantinga( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Korean and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Reading for Preaching Cornelius Plantinga makes a striking claim: preachers who read widely will most likely become better preachers. Plantinga -- himself a master preacher -- shows how a wide reading program can benefit preachers. First, he says, good reading generates delight, and the preacher who enters the world of delight goes with God. Good reading can also help tune the preacher's ear for language -- his or her primary tool. General reading can enlarge the preacher's sympathies for people and situations that she or he had previously known nothing about. And, above all, the preacher who reads widely has the chance to become wise
