Our Reason for Hope

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Our Reason for Hope by T. Leong Book Summary:

The meaning of history is about the purpose and goal of history. According to the Old Testament this involves redeeming humanity and transforming civilization toward an eternal hope of a world in which every longing is fulfilled and every fear is no more. When the Old Testament is understood on its terms, it reveals a marvelous vision of that hope. To capture this vision as well as present credible reason for the hope, this book interweaves into one coherent exposition five strands of Old Testament studies usually separated into different books: theology, ethics, mission, history, apologetics.

Walking Where Jesus Walked

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Walking Where Jesus Walked by Hillary Kaell Book Summary:

Since the 1950s, millions of American Christians have traveled to the Holy Land to visit places in Israel and the Palestinian territories associated with Jesus’s life and death. Why do these pilgrims choose to journey halfway around the world? How do they react to what they encounter, and how do they understand the trip upon return? This book places the answers to these questions into the context of broad historical trends, analyzing how the growth of mass-market evangelical and Catholic pilgrimage relates to changes in American Christian theology and culture over the last sixty years, including shifts in Jewish-Christian relations, the growth of small group spirituality, and the development of a Christian leisure industry. Drawing on five years of research with pilgrims before, during and after their trips, Walking Where Jesus Walked offers a lived religion approach that explores the trip’s hybrid nature for pilgrims themselves: both ordinary—tied to their everyday role as the family’s ritual specialists, and extraordinary—since they leave home in a dramatic way, often for the first time. Their experiences illuminate key tensions in contemporary US Christianity between material evidence and transcendent divinity, commoditization and religious authority, domestic relationships and global experience. Hillary Kaell crafts the first in-depth study of the cultural and religious significance of American Holy Land pilgrimage after 1948. The result sheds light on how Christian pilgrims, especially women, make sense of their experience in Israel-Palestine, offering an important complement to top-down approaches in studies of Christian Zionism and foreign policy.

Incorporating Children in Worship

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Incorporating Children in Worship by Michelle A. Clifton-Soderstrom,David Bjorlin Book Summary:

Incorporating children in worship is a powerful and overlooked mark of God's kingdom. This book argues that children's full participation in worship signifies not only a vibrant, faithful communion but also offers a critical window into the Spirit's work of linking the church to Christ. Children have a vocation in worship. They embody the theological virtues in distinct ways that enrich the worship of the whole church. Moreover, incorporating children reflects the difference in unity that is God's triune life. Receiving children in their difference moves the worshipping body toward the telos of worship--glorification of God and sanctification of humanity--and habituates the worshipping body to incorporate other, often more threatening, kinds of difference.

Paul and His Life-Transforming Theology

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Paul and His Life-Transforming Theology by Roger Mohrlang Book Summary:

Here is a concise, inviting introduction to the greatest of the early Christian missionaries, the Apostle Paul--his life, his letters, his thinking--and the life-transforming gospel he proclaimed. Readers will find this book academically stimulating, theologically rich, and personally challenging. It highlights the ways Paul's life and thinking differ from--and challenge--the life and thinking of Christians today. Written in nontechnical language for both Christian students and general Christian readers, this book--the result of a lifetime of studying and teaching Paul's letters--will be helpful to all students and teachers of the Bible who want a deeper understanding of Paul, his theology, and the implications of his powerful letters for Christians today.

Real Struggles, Real Hope

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Real Struggles, Real Hope by Kimberly Gibson Johnson Book Summary:

In my mind’s eye, a little girl crouches in a dark and cluttered hallway closet. Mountains of stuff fill this tiny room, where she remains hidden from everyone and everything. Besides the stuff of anger and doubt in this small space, the walls have writing on them that names the fears, insecurities, and reasons for shielding herself from the unfamiliar and the unknown. Many times, the little girl tries to exit her safe place. With a mask of self-prescribed extroversion, she determinedly leaves the four walls of her secret domain to be good at things and people—a good student, wife, even a mother. Hesitantly, she tells herself that hope and joy are within reach. But after a short stay away from the security of the hallway closet, the little girl goes back inside and continues hiding from life. I was that young girl. I did not want to live this way any longer, so I cried out to God—who had been with me all along. He knew my pain, insecurities, anger, and fear. Bigger than any wall of self-protection I built, God would bring down these walls if I let him. My crying out was the first step.

Ancient Egyptian Literature

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Ancient Egyptian Literature by N.A Book Summary:

Poetry, stories, hymns, prayers, and wisdom texts found exquisite written expression in ancient Egypt while their literary counterparts were still being recited around hearth fires in ancient Greece and Israel. Yet, because of its very antiquity and the centuries during which the language was forgotten, ancient Egyptian literature is a newly discovered country for modern readers. This anthology offers an extensive sampling of all the major genres of ancient Egyptian literature. It includes all the texts from John Foster's previous book Echoes of Egyptian Voices, along with selections from his Love Songs of the New Kingdom and Hymns, Prayers, and Songs: An Anthology of Ancient Egyptian Lyric Poetry, as well as previously unpublished translations of four longer and two short poems. Foster's translations capture the poetical beauty of the Egyptian language and the spirit that impelled each piece's composition, making these ancient masterworks sing for modern readers. An introduction to ancient Egyptian literature and its translation, as well as brief information about the authorship and date of each selection, completes the volume.

Whitman Revisited

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Whitman Revisited by Frank Jakubowsky Book Summary:

It is very unusual for an author to number parts of his poems. Walt Whitmans poem, Song of Myself, has 52 parts, which he numbered 1 to 52. This book uses that idea that Whitman numbered his poems in his book, Leaves of Grass. I have found that Jesus wrote his parables that are in a cycle of ten. My book, The Psychological Patterns of Jesus Christ, shows how these parables relate to that pattern. I also found that other people are writing in that same pattern, and I say that it relates to the influence of the Spirit of Truth. Whitmans numbers are also in a cycle of ten. His numbers 1, 11, 21, 31, 41, 51 would relate to a part number 1 of the cycle of ten. I also have numbered the ten parts of Jesus cycle. It just happens that our numberings are the same. So Whitmans 1, 11, 21, 31, 41, 51 and my discovery of Jesus pattern of number 1, enlighten has the same quality. These are how the numbers relate to the parts, which I gave key words to describe the part. 1. enlighten; 2. inadequacy; 3. expansive; 4. fruitful; 5. authoritative; 6. communication; 7. reject; 8. sociable; 9. spiritual; 10. action. Looking over the last single numbers that Whitman numbered, we can see some relationship to Jesus key words. For example, the word sun seems to happen quite often in numbers 5, 15, 25, etc. that relates to the key word of authoritative which seems just right. The match of numbers and the cycle of ten gives a good indication that Walt Whitman was influenced by the spirit of truth. Walt put on the mind of Christ.

Resilience and Aging

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Resilience and Aging by Helen Lavretsky Book Summary:

When aging adults struggle with social isolation, financial instability, or the difficult work of caring for a spouse with a chronic illness, their levels of stress can be enormous. But many older adults are living longer and are trying to make the best of their later years despite being more vulnerable to stress. In Resilience and Aging, renowned geriatric psychiatrist Dr. Helen Lavretsky explains how enhanced resilience—which involves positively adapting to adversity in a way that maintains a person’s biological and psychological equilibrium—can counter that vulnerability. She describes how care, practice, and research all can be redirected toward emphasizing the positive aspects of aging and prevention. Lavretsky summarizes the most up-to-date research on resilience, neurobiology, and preventive care. She also describes novel interventions—including yoga, tai chi, meditation, and allopathic techniques—that can help older adults improve their cognition and quality of life. Finally, she explores relevant clinical cases from her practice. Designed for geriatric practitioners, researchers, and family caregivers, this practical book offers critical information on measuring resilience, the role of spirituality in reducing stress, and incorporating resilience-building procedures into clinical practice or everyday life. Throughout, the book’s revolutionary integrative approach aims to amplify personal happiness by allowing aging adults to remain healthy and active while simultaneously reducing the cost of chronic disease to families and society.

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Icon of the Divine Heart of God the Father: Apologia and Canon by Marcelle Bartolo-Abela Book Summary:

In this book, the background of the revealed, diptych, ecumenical icon of the Divine Heart of God the Father Encompassing All Hearts is presented, together with the related Consecration (Seal) Prayer to the Almighty Father. The icon apologia and canon are elucidated. The ecumenical importance of the icon of the Divine Heart for the universal Church is addressed, together with the basis for the icon in Sacred Scripture and Tradition, as well as its meaning for our present times and eschatological future. The aims of the icon, history of God the Father in iconography, and pertinent Church Council decrees are explored. The history of the first icon of the Eternal Father in the Catholic Church is given, with evidence of the Divine Paternal Heart, including Scriptural evidence, and the history/revelations of this second icon of the Father in the Catholic Church. A summary theology of the Divine Heart icon is outlined, with relevance to the sacred liturgy, Catholic/Orthodox mysticism, the era of the eighth day and deification of man, the universal call to holiness, and the de-Christianization of our times.

Being Tossed to and Fro? the Way to Steady Yourself

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Being Tossed to and Fro? the Way to Steady Yourself by M. C. Paul Book Summary:

Is there a meaning to my life? This question confronts every one of us at one stage or another. The answer comes from within us in the form of another question: How can I know unless I created me myself? If we assume that man is a created being, we tend to say that the creator should reveal Himself and give meaning to his life. This revelation naturally has to be progressive, as life is always in progress. Man gets convinced finally when God becomes a man to reveal it to him. This conviction in his mind leads him to commitment of his will and it results in new life in his heart. The Bible says that this happens when man receives the good news about Jesus and His death on the cross. The purpose of this new life according to the Bible is to become like Jesus. There is a force which tries to pull man away from experiencing this new life. If a man persists and experiences it, then this force doesn’t allow him to progress in this new life. Various tricks are played. The most prominent is false teaching. It does not allow believers to understand the Bible rightly. The essential doctrines to be accepted in unity are deliberately distorted. Spurious doctrines are promoted. The pairs of truth presented in the Bible are not allowed to be held in balance. Different kinds of experiences in the lives of biblical characters are ignored; only one is emphasized at the expense of all others. Various means of grace are not allowed to be tapped, and only one means of grace is shown. Full armour is not allowed to be put on and only one piece is shown to be sufficient to wage the battle. False teaching leaves the believers poverty-stricken in their faith and defenceless in their battle. This book presents polemical teaching to enable believers overcome these tricky hindrances and helps them march forward into the likeness of Jesus.

Valentin Weigel

Valentin Weigel by Valentin Weigel Book Summary:

Offered here for the first time in English is a selection of the most important and characteristic works of Valentin Weigel (1533-88). Readers will find in this volume an introduction to the life, times, and writings of Weigel, a German teacher and theologian who articulated a variant of the Protestant Reformation known as Spiritualism: a form of dissent emphasizing spiritual or inner independence from rules, ceremonies, and the visible or organized church. Together, these works present the heart of this reformer's thought, which championed tolerance and individual conscience in an age of confessional hatred and religious war. Weigel's writings are Spiritualist theory at its most accurate. They complete a missing chapter in the history of mystical literature. Book jacket.

The London Trilogy

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The London Trilogy by Edward St. Boniface Book Summary:

This is a trilogy about three young men finding the fulfillment of their youthful ambitions, from the late 1980s onwards, in rock music and journalism, up to the present day and middle age. As middle age comes on, each must accept a wider responsibility for their past sins. Having either emigrated to or been born in London, all of them become caught up in tantalising opportunities in the capital to fulfill their ambitions of success and fame. Each of them also finds that success comes with an immense price for them personally, and private failures that unmercifully torment them. Their hopeful idealism and dreams become tainted by ruthlessness, opportunism and betrayal of their principles. As each character grows older, he realises he wants to redeem himself and somehow resolve the worst things he has perpetrated in his life – but true redemption requires genuine sacrifice; one even more intense and difficult than their hard-won successes of the past. It may be more than any of them can endure. All of this happens against the background of London’s fantastic, fabulous variety and wealth and exoticism, opportunity and glamour, corruption and poverty and loneliness and harshness. Its pitfalls, rewards and insatiable demands as a fast-moving cultural and media capital are a significant part of the novel’s tone, with an intensified sense of time and place. Edward St. Boniface takes inspiration from a wide range of authors, including Ray Bradbury, Mark Z. Danielewski and David Foster Wallace. The London Trilogy is a work of adult contemporary fiction that will appeal to fans of highbrow and literary novels, bildungsromans and satire.

Finding God in the Singing River

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Finding God in the Singing River by Mark I. Wallace Book Summary:

We live in an age of vast and rapid destruction of habitats and species. Yet Christianity holds great potential for healing this situation. Indeed, the Bible and Christian tradition are a treasure trove of rich images and stories about God as an "earthen" being who sustains the natural world with compassion and thereby models for humankind environmentally healthy ways of being.Mark Wallace's stimulating book retrieves a central but often neglected biblical theme - the idea of God as carnal Spirit who indwells all things - as the basis for constructing a "green spirituality" responsive to the environmental needs of our time.In the biblical tradition, he writes, God as Spirit is an ecological presence that shows itself to us daily by living in and through the earth. One message of Christianity, therefore, is celebration of the bodily, material world - ancient redwoods, vernal springs, broad-winged hawks, everyday pigweed - as the place that God indwells and cares for in order to maintain the well-being of our common planetary home.Alongside his green reading of the Bible and tradition, Wallace employs the resources of deep ecology, Neopagan spirituality, and the environmental justice movement to rethink Christianity as an earth-based, body-loving religion. He also analyzes color images reproduced in the book. Wallace's bold yet careful work reawakens our sense of the sacrality of the earth and the life that the trinitarian God creates there. It also grounds the impulses of New Age spirituality in a profoundly biblical notion of God's being and activity.

God’S Plan of Creation

Encompassing God [Pdf/ePub] eBook

God’S Plan of Creation by Robert N. Smith Book Summary:

Gods Plan of Creation: Written for All Gods Children Who Want to Know and Are Not Afraid to Think offers scripturally informed answers to questions arising in peoples minds as they wonder about the nature of God and His designs for all of creation. By using a three-part structure that examines the Siege, the Legacy, and the Story, Robert N. Smith brings to bear both his long study of the Scriptures and his insights to provide guidance for all who want to know and are not afraid to think. The first part, the Siege, presents an inquiry and review of humanitys continuing efforts to gain hold of its Legacy. The focus of the second portion of Gods Plan of Creation, the Legacy entails the gifts that God has chosen to give to humanity and that people today have received from the hands of their forebears in the faith. Finally, the Story displays a visual timeline of creation, plotting out key points of theology and cosmology. It is laid out landscape, therefore it does not fit the book format. Part 3 is in progress and will follow soon. If you see the world in all its beauty, complexity, and diversity and you find yourself wondering about the God who made all things and about His desires for how humanity fits into His plans, then Gods Plan of Creation: Written for All Gods Children Who Want to Know and Are Not Afraid to Think will pour out insights worth pondering. It takes a fearless and eyes-wide-open look at God and His plans and invites you to join in a journey of vision and discovery.
