Title :

Spirituality According To Paul

Spirituality often evokes images of quiet centeredness, meditative serenity and freedom from life's pressures. It’s become a chic commodity, with its benefits evoked by images of sunrises and secluded retreats. Contrast the apostle Paul, who promotes a cross-shaped spirituality for fools making their way though life's trials. Paul realized that images of crucifixion, burial and resurrection would never be popular images of the spiritual life. So he encourages his fellow travelers, who are spiritually united with Christ, to "follow me as I follow Christ."

As he explores this ancient spiritual path, Rodney Reeves probes our understanding of what Christian spirituality should be. And to illuminate its transformative power, he gives us living illustrations of what it means to follow Paul as he followed Christ. Here is a book that joins a deep understanding of Paul with a pastoral and spiritual wisdom born of experience.

Mere Spirituality - Spiritual Life According To Henri Nouwen

Author : Vern PoythressWil Hernandez

Category : Catholism

Format : Softcover
Price: $21.00*
* Price Before Member's Discount

 

Henri Nouwens compelling spirituality of the heart is at once simple and complex, accessible but deeply profound. For this Catholic theologian, whose ecumenical writings continue to inspire Christians of all denominations and levels of involvement, spirituality is, at its most basic, simply attention to the life of the spirit in us. Wil Hernandezs sensitive distillation of Nouwens vast literary legacy invites us to take courage and be still, creating space for God and our true selves.

It is in this place of trust and solitude that we discover our belovedness and our capacity to love God and others. A scholar and spiritual director intimately acquainted with Nouwens understanding of the spiritual life, Wil Hernandez offers an elegant synthesis of Nouwens main themes, inspiring us to embrace the power and vulnerability of mere spirituality.

Medieval Wisdom For Modern Christian
 

Author :

Chris Armstrong

Category : Spiritual Formation

Evangelicals - and Protestants in general - have a tendency to skip directly from the early church to the Reformation as if nothing of consequence happened in between. Chris Armstrong, senior editor of Christian History, shows how wrong this view is, demonstrating that the medieval world was a backdrop for much of C.S. Lewis's thinking.

This primer on the ministry of preaching connects reading the Bible theologically with preparing and preaching sermons.

He provides models for theological sermons along with commentary on exegetical and homiletical method and explains that patristic exegesis is relevant for reading the Bible today.

Resurgent Church

Author : Mike Mcdaniel / Rob Suggs

The Pew Research Center reports "No Affiliation"-identification with no religious tradition-is the fastest-growing designation among people polled. Evangelicals, mainline Christians, and Catholics are all declining while the unaffiliated category is increasing significantly. The Church no longer has a primary place in the cultural dialogue, and Christian leaders are struggling with the fallout. The situation is urgent. Of the present 43 percent unchurched, 33 percent are dechurched-formerly affiliated with church but no longer are. Ten percent are purely unchurched with no background in any church. The pressing question is, what will the declining numbers be in another ten years? But in his book, The Resurgent Church, author Mike McDaniel says,

"If we look beyond the unsettling trends, we begin to see something encouraging-churches are reinventing themselves and finding ways to survive, flourish, and break through to the unchurched and the dechurched." He shows a new paradigm of incarnational churches that have managed transition to powerfully impact their communities with the message of Jesus. Based on a five-year examination of reinvented churches, McDaniel has discovered seven critical pathways to help your church thrive in today's post-Christendom world-a guidebook of principles to help church leaders see into the future and reverse the direction of their fading churches. There is so much we can't delay doing, but there is also so much renewed passion and exhilaration in rediscovering how to become the church Jesus died to save.

Title :

Christian Leader

 

Author :

Bill Hull 

Category : Leadership

Format : Softcover

Price: $25.00*
* Price Before Member's Discount

 

From the author of the bestselling book The Disciple-Making Pastor comes a call to Christian leaders to let go of their addiction to secular models of leadership rooted in pragmatic success. Most leadership literature talks about having the right kind of leadership personality. You know the type: big-picture visionaries who serve others and get the best out of people. But the popular pattern of doing what works and getting rewarded for it is actually the enemy of Christian leadership. It thrives on making our work impersonal and exploitive. Far too often, it serves the leader rather than those the leader leads. Sadly, this pattern dominates Christian leadership in the West. We need a different style of leadership-one patterned after Jesus. Jesus influenced others because of who he was, not because he was well-known or a person of power or because he had mastered a set of skills or implemented an effective leadership strategy. He could have completed his mission living in your house, driving your car, married to your spouse, working at your office, and raising your kids because leadership comes down to character. Many who aspire to leadership are looking for the right circumstances so they can lead. Many in positions of leadership find it difficult to lead because of obstacles, such as a lack of funds, authority, and or confusion about methods. Jesus faced all of these, and more, yet he accomplished his mission.

This is not a book about improving Christian organizations; it is about changing how Christians lead. It is for anyone with a megaphone, a platform to speak, who wants to lead others in being a witness for truth. It is for people with a pulpit, whether that pulpit be a business or a position of influence in a domain of the culture: entertainment, sports, politics, industry, the arts, academia, or religion. If you are someone to whom others listen-this book is for you. Each chapter begins with a title and statement about Jesus' life. Jesus was a different kind of teacher. The Pharisees focused on doing the right thing. Jesus emphasized becoming the kind of person who wants to do the right thing. Others taught the importance of doing good; Jesus taught how to be good. He didn't teach behavior modification alone; he taught how to change the sources of behavior. Knowing how to lead others begins by seeing Jesus as your leader.
