The author shows through reading and analysis an organized and coherent message formed over centuries: how do we learn to rule in the midst of our enemies?
Edward W. H. Vick – Philosophy for Believers “This book is intended to be an introduction to themes that concern anyone who thinks about belief, any kind of belief but in particular Christian belief. But these are not the only ones who are interested in the philosophical issues which the existence of a theistic faith raises. Indeed it is often the non-believers who have the edge over the frequenters of the pew, when it comes to more consistent and prolonged thinking. This writing is for them too.” – Edward W.H. Vick
David Moffett-Moore – Wind and Whirlwind “That which is most personal is also often what’s most universal.” says Dr. Moffett-Moore. A pastor in crisis serving a parish in crisis is the beginning and includes the research and training it motivated, this volume is written to help pastors care for their congregations living through times of overwhelming change as well as cope with their congregations when conflict occur. It is a story offering survival and the opportunity of success.
Kimberly Gordon – Please Love Me Mrs. Gordon’s third work of fiction may be her best yet as she holds nothing back in this story of love sought and love found. Margaret Roe and Russell Chadwick begin with very different ideas about what is marriage and commitment. It will bring the reader into considering what a covenant marriage has at its foundation and what it can become.
Joel Watts and Travis Milam – Fear to Faith Mr. Watts has been a blogger for many years (unsettledchristianity.com) and he invited many who have been part of conservative churches and left. Going through the transition may result in a militant atheist where there was once a militant Christian; an injured child of God who needed support and healing, not condemnation and desertion. These stories do not beg judgment or pity but a listening ear that will see the ultimate beauty and learn from their journey.
Robert LaRochelle – So Much Older Then Through a series of preachings and conversations held in his local church, Rev LaRochelle invites us into his ministry as he shares his experience with some of the most difficult and troubling questions and thought provoking comments he has faced. Pastor and congregation in real dialogue with one another will tackle suffering, death, non-believing loved ones, and the relevancy of the church today among their subjects.
William Powell Tuck – Last Words from the Cross Can a church be an authentic Church and not focus on the cross? The last seven words of Jesus on the cross give us insight into Jesus’ inner thoughts in these moments of dying, a deeper understanding of his suffering, and they provide us with a sense of the relevancy of our Lord’s suffering to address our own needs. These words reveal his personal agony, his concern for others, his forgiving spirit, his physical suffering, his ultimate trust and faithfulness in the One he had proclaimed.
Shauna Hyde – 50 Shades of Grace A scriptural look at what the Bible says about relationships. Too often in the education of relationships, abusive and unhealthy relationships if discussed are not done so with enough depth. This book will compare what society tells us in the form of entertainment with what God tells us in the Bible about what healthy and loving relationships are. It will explore what abuse is and why many of us are in abusive relationships and what we can do about it. The hope for writing this book is to help people not fall into the trap of harmful relationships.
Robert D. Cornwall – Unfettered Spirit: Spiritual Gifts for the New Great Awakening “… if the church is to become more than a museum of past religious practices it will need to rekindle the missional spirit that marked the earliest Christians.” says Dr. Cornwall. His challenge begins from the premise that if the Holy Spirit is calling us forward into the future, “missions” does not signify overseas work but in our own communities. We must understand what it means to be a church in a globalized and religiously pluralist world. How do we proclaim Jesus as Lord even as we seek to listen to and learn from and walk with those whose faith professions are different from our own?
