♥ Book Title : Hidden in Christ
☯ Full Synopsis : "A Deeper Sort of Devotional Words are powerful. They contain ideas and shape the way we see God, ourselves and all of reality. We're transformed, in particular, by God's Word, and by "the Word," the Logos—Jesus himself—as described by John in the first chapter of his Gospel. Memorizing and studying a passage in depth can offer a deeper sense of the meaning of each word. In this unique introduction to the hidden life in Christ, James Bryan Smith walks readers through a thirty-day immersion in Colossians 3:1-17. Each of the thirty short chapters of this book bring out the main truth of just one word or phrase of this rich passage. You'll also find a very simple daily practice to take up, reflection questions and a guide for five weeks of group discussion. The chapters are short in length, making this book an ideal daily devotional. Since there are thirty chapters, it could be used for a one-month introduction to the hidden life in Christ. Though brief in terms of length, each chapter tries to unearth some very deep truths. For those who have read and practiced the exercises in the Apprentice series, this book will be a helpful refresher as you continue your sacred journey. Each chapter also contains an exercise or practice ("Living into the Truth"), as well as an affirmation that summarizes the main point of the chapter and a written prayer designed to move you deeper into the truths of the Word. In addition, each chapter concludes with a few reflection questions that can be used either by individuals or in a group discussion. The only way to tell a story is to use words. May the words of Colossians 3 become a companion to you as God continues to write your story."Article| James Bryan Smith| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Slave
☯ Full Synopsis : "A COVER-UP OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS... Centuries ago, English translators perpetrated a fraud in the New Testament, and it’s been purposely hidden and covered up ever since. Your own Bible is probably included in the cover-up! In this book, which includes a study guide for personal or group use, John MacArthur unveils the essential and clarifying revelation that may be keeping you from a fulfilling—and correct—relationship with God. It’s powerful. It’s controversial. And with new eyes you’ll see the riches of your salvation in a radically new way. What does it mean to be a Christian the way Jesus defined it? MacArthur says it all boils down to one word: SLAVE “We have been bought with a price. We belong to Christ. We are His own possession.” Endorsements: "Dr. John MacArthur is never afraid to tell the truth and in this book he does just that. The Christian's great privilege is to be the slave of Christ. Dr. MacArthur makes it clear that this is one of the Bible's most succinct ways of describing our discipleship. This is a powerful exposition of Scripture, a convincing corrective to shallow Christianity, a masterful work of pastoral encouragement...a devotional classic." - Dr. R. Albert Mohler, President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary "John MacArthur expertly and lucidly explains that Jesus frees us from bondage into a royal slavery that we might be His possession. Those who would be His children must, paradoxically, be willing to be His slaves." - Dr. R.C. Sproul "Dr. John MacArthur's teaching on 'slavery' resonates in the deepest recesses of my 'inner-man.' As an African-American pastor, I have been there. That is why the thought of someone writing about slavery as being a 'God-send' was the most ludicrous, unconscionable thing that I could have ever imagined...until I read this book. Now I see that becoming a slave is a biblical command, completely redefining the idea of freedom in Christ. I don't want to simply be a 'follower' or even just a 'servant'...but a 'slave'." - The Rev. Dr. Dallas H. Wilson, Jr., Vicar, St. John's Episcopal Chapel, Charleston, SC"Article| John F.

♥ Book Title : Hidden with Christ
☯ Full Synopsis : "Hidden with Christ tells the story of finding freedom from a dark past. Author Lisa Radcliff shares her personal experience of childhood sexual abuse and how she found freedom through the truth of God's Word: "For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God" (Colossians 3:3). The book looks at the issues of fear, trust, shame, bitterness, intimacy, and more, while exploring the blessings of God's grace and restoration. Anyone suffering the effects of a dark past will find hope in Hidden with Christ. It also addresses many questions asked by those who suffer: Why me?, Where was God?, What was the purpose?, Who's to blame? If you feel "stuck" in the past, learn how to find freedom and live the abundant, joyful life God designed for you. Lisa also introduces heroes from her life--men God used at specific times to rescue her from the darkness, and challenges those who suffer to discover the heroes in their lives."Article| Lisa J.

♥ Book Title : Christ, the Sun of Righteousness
☯ Full Synopsis : "This work sets forth pictures of Christ as He is revealed throughout scripture. The whole message of the Bible regards the person and work of Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God. He is to be found on every page of Holy Writ. He is the sum and substance of God's message to lost mankind, the One through whom God reveals Himself to man, the One through whom God reconciles sinners to Himself, the One in whom all the blessings of God to His people are revealed. The Gospel of God concerns His Son, Jesus Christ, and the message of the Bible is of the salvation of sinners through Christ, by Free and Sovereign Grace. May the reader be pointed towards Christ, the Saviour, the Sun of righteousness. Recommended for personal reading and meditation. It will handsomely reward time invested in it. However, it has other uses too. The book may readily be employed evangelistically as a gift...grace is unambiguously presented as the free gift of God.

♥ Book Title : Justice, Unity, and the Hidden Christ
☯ Full Synopsis : "Does social justice promote Christian unity? With reference to paragraph 12 of Unitatis Redintegratio--Vatican II's declaration on ecumenism--this book argues that an emphasis on justice and unity without proper consideration of social context actually risks obscuring a clear public declaration of Christ, by having Christians uncritically accept the presumptions that underpin the sociopolitical status quo. This constitutes a failure in Christian interpretation, the crux of which is a failure in ecclesiology. Matthew John Paul Tan suggests the beginnings of a corrective with reference to works by Pope Benedict XVI, theologians such as Graham Ward, and postmodern theorists like Michel Foucault. Ultimately, Tan invites the reader to begin considering how answering this seemingly simple question will implicate not only theology, but also philosophy and political theory, as well as considering the need for the church to engage in a bolder confessional politics in place of the politics of the public square often favored by Christian and non-Christian commentators."Article| Matthew John Paul Tan| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Hidden Sins in the Body of Christ
☯ Full Synopsis : "Hidden sins are running rampant in our Churches and must be exposed. Are we living out the life of Christ? Are we living out the life of Christ, or just making religious noises while our fleshly desires block out the Spirit's call to cleanse our vessels? Hidden Sins in the Body of Christ challenges us to re-examine our relationship with the Lord. ?Hidden Sins gets down to the heart of the matter. It will make you search introspectively to see where you really are in relation to Christ Jesus. You will ask yourself, ?Am I really Christ-like or am I living in sin Dallas Howard, Senior Pastor of Covenant Life Church of God, Bremen, GA. ?The Bible in its fullness is a love letter from the Lord to His bride; Hidden Sins is a watchful warning that cleanses and prepares the bride for His coming. Not only does this book open our eyes to the tactics of the enemy but it readily builds our faith as victorious believers.? Ingrid McKinley"Article| Sonja Fishburne| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Sophia
☯ Full Synopsis : "While numerous studies have celebrated Thomas Merton's witness as an interfaith pioneer, poet, and peacemaker, there have been few systematic treatments of his Christology as such, and no sustained exploration to date of his relationship to the Russian Sophia" tradition. This book looks to Thomas Merton as a "classic" theologian of the Christian tradition from East to West, and offers an interpretation of his mature Christology, with special attention to his remarkable prose poem of 1962, Hagia Sophia. Bringing Merton's mystical-prophetic Vision fully into dialogue with contemporary Christology, Russian sophiology, and Zen, as well as figures such as John Henry Newman and Abraham Joshua Heschel, the author carefully but boldly builds the case that Sophia, the same theological eros that animated Merton's religious imagination in a period of tremendous fragmentation and violence, might infuse new vitality into our own. A study of uncommon depth and scope, inspired throughout by Merton's extraordinary catholicity. Christopher Pramuk, PhD, is assistant professor of theology at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. He is the author of two books and numerous essays, and the recipient of the Catholic Theological Society of America's 2009 Catherine Mowry LaCugna Award. ""Article| Christopher Pramuk| Statement ..."
