NEW THIS WEEK:

 

Title : Finding Rest for the Soul

Author : Robert Solomon

Category : Asian Author

Format : Softcover

Price: $25.00 NETT

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." — Matthew 11:28-29

This invitation from Jesus speaks to many of us who are worn out or crushed by the pressures of life. It appears to offer us a refuge from our trials. But is this all our Lord is calling us to? Take a closer look at His invitation, and you'll discover much more - promises of a new source of strength for our God-given tasks as well as a challenge to follow Him all the way. Will we go to Him, take His yoke, and learn from Him? Find out how you can make sense of your faith and life as you respond wholeheartedly to the call of our Creator, Healer, Saviour, and Teacher.

 
 

It's easy to get caught up in the dramatic details of the story of Jonah. Who can forget the prophet who tried to flee from God but was swallowed whole by a big fish? Let Robert Solomon take you deeper into the book of Jonah, and you'll soon be seeing this popular Sunday School account in a new light.

For the story of Jonah is really a story of God's heart and God's mission. It tells of a loving God who pursues His people relentlessly—whether a renegade prophet, a boatful of desperate sailors, or a sinful city. It speaks of a merciful God who is always ready to give people a second chance. And it shows a compassionate God who is working in our hearts even as He challenges us to love others. Don't miss the beautiful truths contained in what Jesus himself called the "sign of Jonah".

Title : Living Faithfully: Human Sexuality & The United Methodist Church

Publisher : Abingdon Press

Category : TR-Christian Living

Format : Softcover

Price: $19.00*

*Price before Member's Discount

There is deep disagreement about what The United Methodist Church should teach about homosexuality, same gender marriage, and the ordination of LGBTQ persons. In 2019, a special session of General Conference will be held to consider these issues and how they will be addressed by The United Methodist Church in the future.

Living Faithfully is designed to help you understand the shape of this debate and what it means for the present and the future. Each chapter includes background on the Bible, Christian theology, history, stories from diverse viewpoints, and United Methodist structure and practice to guide reflection and conversation. You'll also find definitions of key terms and information about upcoming events.

The four chapters are:
1. Is the Practice of Homosexuality Incompatible with Christian Teaching?
2. Is Same-gender Marriage Compatible with Christian Teaching?
3. Is Ordaining Practicing Homosexuals Compatible with Christian Teaching?
4. Where Are We Now?

Title : Theology In Three Dimensions

 

Author : John Frame

Category : Theology

Format : Softcover

Price: $20.00*

*Price before Member's Discount

Because God created all things with coherent unity, everything can be understood from the perspective of everything else. We experience the world in the context of our own bodies, but every day we broaden our understanding through the perspectives of others. Meanwhile, our omniscient God is also omniperspectival. Through his revelation, he allows us a glimpse of his own divine perspective.

What does this mean for us? One valuable dimension of this reality is that theological issues can also be helpfully viewed from multiple perspectives without compromising their unity and truth. In this accessible introduction to his Bible study and theological method, John Frame teaches us to approach doctrine with situational, normative, and existential perspectives modeled on the Trinity.
