Book Short Summary:

Kenda Tyson has lived a pretty wonderful life. Her parents are lawyers who own their own firm, and they provide their 17-year-old daughter with only the finest. Kenda has come to expect that the men in her life will continue to offer her that same level of luxury, and when she meets the good-looking, smooth-talking Jerome Smith, she's sure she's hit the jackpot. Her perspective quickly changes, however, when she finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of love, lies, and abuse. The first time she has to examine a bruise on her face, Kenda allows herself to believe that it was a mistake Jerome will never make again. Her friends try to convince Kenda that being with Jerome is not what's best for her, but when she refuses to listen to them, they walk away, hoping that God will hear their prayers and protect Kenda's life. When Kenda decides that her relationship with Jerome is more important than her friendships and her family, will she realize how much she is giving up before it's too late?

Book Short Summary:

The relationship between God and Jesus is the means and the model for God’s renewal of humanity. Jesus is the “firstborn” of God’s future human society, but he will not be the last. God’s purpose is to have a family made up of the completed and glorified humans we were always meant to become. What an exciting future God is planning for us! Human potential in the hands of God exceeds our wildest imagination. Although Jesus’s roles and titles are often seen as separating him from the rest of us humans, they actually embed him deeply in our humanity. Jesus was, is, and always will be one of us. Becoming completed humans like Jesus is a road we are called to travel, as we learn to increasingly depend upon God’s promise to provide the gifts of forgiveness and empowerment. Let’s take the journey together with our brother who is “the Son of God” and “the Son of Man (Humanity).”

Book Short Summary:

Nibila’s Testimony! I absolutely know the power of the name Jesus! I began to call on Jesus early on in my youth. Having parents who love you unconditionally was God’s first manifestation to me and what I will cherish the most from him. My journey to a deeper relationship evolved much later in my fifties. The twists and left turns began once I became a woman in my early teens. It was then I began to navigate through life ignoring the GPS (God’s perfect solutions) for my life. It was Jesus who kept me and that still small voice who guided me time and time again out of my detours, roadblocks, potholes, fender benders, and the head-on collisions that I willingly drove right into before giving Jesus full control of me. God’s love, mercy, and amazing grace continue to manifest in my life today. Jesus continues turning me right and keeping me straight and focused on his love, which is for all who believe in Christ Jesus.

Book Short Summary:

With The Medicine Wheel for Stepparents, I hope to give some understanding and relief to blended families. Stepfamilies have common threads of dysfunction. There are many issues that form these common threads. These issues occur between stepparent and stepchild and biological parent, biological child, and extended family in blended families. I have listed the issues and have offered affordable solutions that are within our grasp. These common threads reappear in every aspect of family life, including financial matters such as your childs Social Security checks, child-support checks, medical bills, and the parents will. These issues occur when the power structure changes in a home after a divorce or death in a family. Everyone is left in a gigantic power struggle, which retires parents prematurely. Stepparents and stepchildren feel that they must protect their territory, ego, and family with secrets, isolation, intimidation, manipulation, and stonewalling behavior. When stepfamilies are choking, parents, stepparents, and stepchildren do not have to be severely depressed, take multiple medications for depression and energy, get a divorce, or attempt suicide for relief. Biological parents and stepparents do not have to be retired prematurely. There are better ways to keep everyone functioning in blended families. My book will not take away all the opposition you experience in blended families. We learn by overcoming opposition, not creating opposition. This book helps you analyze and carry the opposition to your efforts for your blended family.

  • Pdf File: amazing-grace-in-john-newton.pdf

Book Short Summary:

In "Amazing Grace," the best-loved of all hymns, John Newton's allusions to the drama of his life tell the story of a youth who was a virtual slave in Sierra Leone before ironically becoming a slave trader himself. Liverpool, his home port, was the center of the most colossal, lucrative, and inhumane slave trade the world has ever known. A gradual spiritual awakening transformed Newton into an ardent evangelist and antislavery activist.Influenced by Methodists George Whitefield and John Wesley, Newton became prominent among those favoring a Methodist-style revival in the Church of England. This movement stressed personal conversion, simple worship, emotional enthusiasm, and social justice. While pastor of a poor flock in Olney, he and poet William Cowper produced a hymnal containing such perennial favorites as "Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken" and "God Moves in a Mysterious Way." Later, while serving a church in London, Newton raised British consciousness on the immorality of the slave trade. The account he gave to Parliament of the atrocities he had witnessed helped William Wilberforce obtain legislation to abolish the slave trade in England.Newton's life story convinced many who are "found" after being "lost" to sing Gospel hymns as they lobbied for civil rights legislation. His close involvement with both capitalism and evangelicalism, the main economic and religious forces of his era, provide a fascinating case study of the relationship of Christians to their social environment. In an afterword on Newtonian Christianity, Phipps explains Newton's critique of Karl Marx's thesis that religious ideals are always the effect of what produces the most profit. Phipps relies on accountsNewton gives in his ship journal, diary, letters, and sermons for this most readable scholarly narrative.

Book Short Summary:

An in-depth look at the institution as the center of many important cultural shifts with which the South and the wider Church have wrestled historically. Columbia Theological Seminary’s rich history provides a window into the social and intellectual life of the American South. Founded in 1828 as a Presbyterian seminary for the preparation of well-educated, mannerly ministers, it was located during its first one hundred years in Columbia, South Carolina. During the antebellum period, it was known for its affluent and intellectually sophisticated board, faculty, and students. Its leaders sought to follow a middle way on the great intellectual and social issues of the day, including slavery. Columbia’s leaders, Unionists until the election of Lincoln, became ardent supporters of the Confederacy. While the seminary survived the burning of the city in 1865, it was left impoverished and poorly situated to meet the challenges of the modern world. Nevertheless, the seminary entered a serious debate about Darwinism. Professor James Woodrow, uncle of Woodrow Wilson, advocated a modest Darwinism, but reactionary forces led the seminary into a growing provincialism and intellectual isolation. In 1928 the seminary moved to metropolitan Atlanta signifying a transition from the Old South toward the New (mercantile) South. The seminary brought to its handsome new campus the theological commitments and racist assumptions that had long marked it. Under the leadership of James McDowell Richards, Columbia struggled against its poverty, provincialism, and deeply embedded racism. By the final decade of the twentieth century, Columbia had become one of the most highly endowed seminaries in the country, had internationally recognized faculty, and had students from all over the world and many Christian denominations. By the early years of the twenty-first century, Columbia had embraced a broad diversity in faculty and students. Columbia’s evolution has challenged assumptions about what it means to be Presbyterian, southern, and American, as the seminary continues its primary mission of providing the church a learned ministry. “A well written and carefully documented history not only of Columbia Theological Seminary, but also of the interplay among culture, theology, and theological institutions. This is necessary reading for anyone seeking to discern the future of theological education in the twenty-first century.” —Justo L. González, Church Historian, Decatur, GA “Clarke’s engaging history of one institution is also an incisive study of change in Southern culture. This is institutional history at its best. Clarke takes us inside a school of theology but also lets us feel the outside forces always pressing in on it, and he writes with the skill of a novelist. A remarkable accomplishment.” —E. Brooks Holifield, Emory University

Book Short Summary:

Engagement with the Muslim world and Muslim people is inevitable for Christians. After all, Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the United States. But what does the Qur'an really say about things like Jesus, war, and non-Muslims? What does the Bible say on these matters?

Comparing the Qur'an and the Bible offers readers an unprecedented collection of Scriptures and doctrines of both faiths presented side by side for easy study and comparison, covering such key issues as Jesus Abraham creation angels/jinn jihad the fall of humankind predestination ransom for sin/sacrifice grace rebirth God/Allah women marriage and divorce homosexuality suicide resurrection judgment Paradise prayer A brief explanation of each passage in the Qur'an and the Bible is given, as well as biblical answers to Islamic teaching. The book also motivates readers to have hearts for Muslims and seek to bring them to Christ, offering "door openers" to sharing the Good News. This indispensible collection will be treasured by anyone seeking to understand and engage their Muslim neighbors.

  • Pdf File: the-laying-on-of-hands.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This book was initially birthed out of my personal Bible study as I contemplated the infilling and the baptism of the Holy Ghost. God's established preference or propensity, if you will, to employ the phenomenon of the laying on of hands for healing and for the impartation of the gift of the Holy Ghost has always intrigued me. Specifically, God's use of his chosen disciple from Damascus named Ananias to lay hands upon Saul of Tarsus so that he might receive his sight and be filled with the Holy Ghost has fascinated me since I was a young boy in Sunday school. The entire Road to Damascus narrative and the LORD Jesus Christ's singular (even dreadful) awe-inspiring appearance to the mean-spirited Pharisee Saul engaged and captivated me. This book addresses religious bigotry and the innate inescapable pride and prejudice and perceived spiritual superiority of sectarian indoctrination. Although I originally set out to study the dynamic wonder of God choosing to employ men to minister unto other men and his utilizing the laying on of hands to impart the infilling of the Holy Ghost, the emphasis of my study quickly and seamlessly transitioned from the importance of men to focus on the gift of God""the gift of God of himself, the gift of the Holy Ghost. God gives himself away in and by the comprehensive Christ""both the Father and the Son by the Holy Ghost. It is my desire to magnify the LORD Jesus Christ by focusing upon the purposeful evangelical outreach of God's love that the Father might be glorified in the Son. It concerns and distresses me that as a nation we have waned in our desire for more of God. Broadly, we have settled for gimmicks and questionable entertainment and have silently colluded with one another in spiritual compromise so that we can have more of what the world has. We have settled for shiny things and an unsustainable and unrealistic social acceptance rather than seeking God. (Broadly) we no longer wait upon God, or tarry for the gift of the Holy Ghost, or for the refreshing which would reignite us as viable, zealous, and then incendiary witnesses of the saving power of the LORD Jesus Christ to a lost and desperate, disillusioned world. Someone has to address our complacency and compromise without apology, and this book does just that. The inimitable marvel of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and incomparable personal encounter with the power of God can transform our entire life and character and attitude, resuscitate and rekindle our contemporary worldly conciliatory Christianity, and then progressively and resolutely develop us into the ardent disciples of Jesus Christ we were intended to be. This work endeavors to accurately and appropriately return the emphasis of the baptism of the Holy Ghost to God's evangelical perspective: "and ye shall be witnesses unto me" (Acts 1:8).

Book Short Summary:

"Well written, often poignant and surprisingly relatable." - Kirkus Reviews "A hugely readable journey of cultural and spiritual discovery, sparkling with wit and wisdom." - Alister McGrath "Carolyn Weber's memoir reads like a fast-paced novel. I loved the humor, skillful use of language and her compelling account of her steps to finding God at Oxford. I was totally captivated from beginning to end." - Marilyn Meberg Surprised by Oxford is the memoir of a skeptical agnostic who comes to a dynamic personal faith in God during graduate studies in literature at Oxford University. Carolyn Weber arrives at Oxford a feminist from a loving but broken family, suspicious of men and intellectually hostile to all things religious. As she grapples with her God-shaped void alongside the friends, classmates, and professors she meets, she tackles big questions in search of Truth, love, and a life that matters. From issues of fatherhood, feminism, doubt, doctrine, and love, Weber explores the intricacies of coming to faith with an aching honesty and insight echoing that of the poets and writers she studied. Rich with illustration and literary references, Surprised by Oxford is at once gritty and lyrical; both humorous and spiritually perceptive. This savvy, credible account of Christian conversion and its after-effects follows the calendar year and events of the school year as it entertains, informs, and promises to engage even the most skeptical and unlikely reader. "Surprised by Oxford is a sprightly contribution to the genre of spiritual memoirs in the vein of C.S. Lewis's Surprised by Joy and Lauren F. Winner's Girl Meets God. Carolyn Weber is an unconventional thinker whose engagingly told faith journey will speak to folks who still believe that thoughtful people cannot be Christian." - Lyle W. Dorsett

Book Short Summary:

My book is Holy Spirit inspired, prompting me on a journey from conflict to peace. Every psalm and poem reflects my inner most experiences through my turbulent life including many failures and triumphs. God has proven to me time and time again that His love, strength, and wisdom is present in every aspect of my life. He gave me hope when I had none. Jesus helped me start over and cast my burdens onto Him. The life I lead was long and hard and some of these psalms and poems tell my story of pain, loss, failure, and acceptance, giving me a much needed hard look at myself to make a drastic change in my life. I continue to face challenges on this journey being prompted by the Holy Spirit to excel and not lose faith, and He has opened my eyes and helped me to accept, forgive, repent, and share my experiences. I still have many weak moments, but Jesus shows me that in holding fast through faith He will never leave me. No matter how hard life gets or how long my journey is, until I’m called home, Jesus’s love will never fail me.

Book Short Summary:

In 1991, when he was 13 years old, Lenny Duncan stepped out of his house in West Philadelphia, walked to the Greyhound station, and bought a ticket--the start of his great American adventure. Today Duncan, who inspired and challenged audiences with his breakout first book, Dear Church, brings us a deeply personal story about growing up Black and queer in the U.S. In his characteristically powerful voice he recounts hitchhiking across the country, spending time in solitary confinement, battling for sobriety, and discovering a deep faith, examining pressing issues like poverty, mass incarceration, white supremacy, and LGBTQ inclusion through an intimate portrayal of his life's struggles and joys. United States of Grace is a love story about America, revealing the joy and resilience of those places in this country many call "the margins" but that Lenny Duncan has called home. This book makes the bold claim that God is present with us in the most difficult of circumstances, bringing life out of death.

Book Short Summary:

All religions are pleasing to God but the salvation of our souls can only be made possible by God's grace. There is only one true religion that our salvation can be assured, the Christian religion. Billion called themselves Christians and they were drawn to Christ for what He did for us, dying on the cross so we will be justified, redeemed and saved. What was and is so amazing with the Christian faith was the resurrection of Christ after He died on the Cross. In the history of mankind there never been an incident that a man rose from the dead after three days. The book revealed who Christ is to us. Like St. Francis of Assisi prayed all the time to Christ, JESUS MY ALL. Thus, we know why the great saint of Assisi prayed this way. Christians likewise do the same and all of our brothers and sister deprived of Christ should remember Jesus as our All.

Book Short Summary:

The Oxford Handbooks series is a major new initiative in academic publishing. Each volume offers an authoritative and up-to-date survey of original research in a particular subject area. Specially commissioned essays from leading figures in the discipline give critical examinations of the progress and direction of debates. The Oxford Handbook of Theological Ethics offers the most authoritative and compelling guide to the discipline. Thirty of the world's most distinguished specialists provide new essays in order to offer a survey of and analysis of the subject. Ethics is first placed firmly within the Christian theological tradition, from which thought and action can never be neatly separated. Four sections then explore the sources of Christian moral knowledge (scripture, divine commands, church tradition, reason and natural law, experience); the structure of the Christian life (vocation, virtue, rules, responsibility, death); the spirit of the Christian life (faith, hope, love); and the spheres of the Christian life (government, family, economy, culture, church). The final section of the Handbook contains essays discussing and evaluating certain scholarly works that have in the past influentially offered (different) visions of how best to structure the field of theological ethics. Unlike any other book now available, the Handbook's unrivalled breadth and depth make it the definitive reference work for all students and academics who want to explore more fully essential topics in Christian ethics.

Book Short Summary:

The writer of the letter to the Hebrews said, "See to it that no one misses the grace of God." Over the centuries much ink has been spilled on the subject of grace. Yet perhaps nothing is as hard to explain as God's grace. It doesn't make sense. It's not fair. It can't possibly cover over what I've done. The best way--perhaps the only real way--to understand it is to experience it. But too often in our churches we're not getting grace across and grace is not experienced. Bestselling author and pastor Kyle Idleman wants everyone to experience the grace of God. Through the powerful medium of story, Grace Is Greater leads readers past their hang-ups toward an understanding of grace that is bigger than our mistakes, our failures, our desire for revenge, and our seemingly impossible situations. No sin is so great, no bitterness so deep that God's grace cannot transform the heart and rewrite the story. Perfect for individuals and also for small groups and church-wide studies, Grace Is Greater will help readers truly grasp God's grace, even if the Christians around them have failed to live it.

Book Short Summary:

This book identifies with my suffering and where it came from. Suffer No More can help guide you to freedom from addiction and any character defect that identifies you. When we are born, we are born with a sinful nature, and until we find God, there is no freedom from our sinful nature. Unless you believe in Christ as your personal Savior, you will struggle with the issues of sin for the rest of your life. But if you accept Christ as your Savior, you are then set free from your old sinful nature by the power of Jesus. Suffer No More is just to help people see the light from all their darkness and to help people find freedom. Jesus died on the cross for our sins. Jesus paid the penalty. He willingly took on his body all the punishment that we deserved so we wouldnt have to. He died on the cross for all our sins so we could be set free and be made righteousness in God through Christ Jesus, if we are willing to turn our life over to his care. Allow him to do the work in and through you by his Holy Spirit, and I promise you, you will be set free. Do the twelve steps to the best of your ability, and God will do beyond what you could ever dream or imagine. I pray this book will lead many to Christ.

Book Short Summary:

With all the bad, there was so much good and love within. I didnt know whom or what to share this longing with, but there was one, his name is Jesus. Because of him and his mercy and grace, we shared the same love. Im not going to tell you it was easy to put my trust in Him (Jesus), but he never left or forsake me. He desired all of me, both the good and the bad. I learned in my soul saving journey. Because all in all, the wrong places, things, and people, it was God and His son that I really needed. And with them in my life I dont grieve the Holy Spirit, but I rejoice, even in my trials and infirmities, because greater was he, that was in me, than he that was in the world. Always know that you are never alone and if I can overcome, so can you. My people, you are so loved. Remember God is bigger than your circumstances. So I hope and pray that this book lead you in the arms of the right person Jesus. I am proud today to say Im a Soul Winner for Jesus.

Book Short Summary:

With America's confidence in the Bible at an all-time low and the strength of her spiritual convictions waning, it is essential for Christians—especially Christian leaders—to be well-grounded in biblical theology. To have a clear and comprehensive understanding of the key doctrines of evangelicalism. In response, professor and award-winning author Bruce Demarest has made plain God's glorious plan of salvation, his provision for the human dilemma through Christ's work on the cross, and the application of saving grace to unbelievers. Demarest's unique approach defines each topic, identifies its most pressing issues, examines the ways in which the doctrine has been understood historically, and interprets the Bible's revelation. The result is a clear and carefully constructed doctrinal statement that you can defend, live out, and communicate to others. This singular, comprehensive treatment of one of Christianity's essential doctrines gives definitive, Bible-based answers about salvation and the cross—and about related theological issues such as grace and regeneration. It's perfect for clarifying your theology and gaining deep understanding of this foundational theme. Part of the Foundations of Evangelical Theology series.
