Description : This 25-minute Christmas Nativity pageant tells the story of Jesus Christ from creation to present day. The birth of Christ is seen as an event with a much wider scope than an incident that occurred long ago in Bethlehem. This drama is unique in highlighting Jesus' birth as part of the greater picture of God's activity throughout history: in creation, in the words of the prophets, in the cross, in the resurrection, and in our world today. "The Word Became Flesh" provides drama that is biblically sound, educational, and thought-provoking. Shirley M.

Description : In this book you will discover that God's word became flesh. Jesus was hidden from view when he created the world. He was the word that was with God until He became human and the word was God. I'm an aspiring Revival Evangelist of the Gospel and my passion is the Bible. The greatest gift that I appreciate most is the gift of Jesus Christ the Son of God. If it wasn't for Jesus I wouldn't be the person I am now. Jesus is my best friend. God through His Word, Jesus, made many promises to us. With out Jesus there is no future hope. Jesus makes life worth living and because of him I can enjoy a life of great expectations and promises. Once you discover that Jesus is the Word of God you'll have a great appreciation and love for the Bible. Our future depends on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. With out the Word of God we have no hope. God has given us the precious gift of faith to believe and hope in His promises. We are believers and believers believe everything that God tells us in His word. Believers do not hand pick what they want to believe. You either believe every word that proceeds out of God's mouth or you don't. By choosing to believe the Bible you will receive God's blessings of favor and grace now and your reward will be everlasting life.

Description : Many say “Jesus is the Reason for the Season,” to which I offer this thought: No! God had his plan to send his son “in the fullness of time” because we are the reason for the season! It is because of us in any season of life that he came to live and dwell among us and offer himself and give hope to a dying world. If the reader doesn’t believe in “that stuff,” but you are curious to learn, good! Start by reading God’s word with all the strange-sounding names and pick up on the thread of destiny that belongs to all of us, from birth to death to new life.
Description : Evangelicals are often accused of having a weak or inadequate view of the Incarnation and its implications for salvation, mission and other religions. Where responses to the accusations have been made, the results have been far from satisfying. Little has been written or said by evangelicals on such matters of concern. The Word Became Flesh brings together a number of prominent evangelicals to provide thorough biblical, philosophical and theological reflections on Evangelicals and the Incarnation. These papers respond not only to particular charges of neglect but also critique the incarnational theology of those who have made such charges. Particular emphasis is given to the link between the incarnation and the cross, what it means for humanity and for the Christian and church life today. • Provides wholistic biblical reflections on the Incarnation with reference to Salvation, mission, the Christian life, Scripture and the Lord’s Supper. • Contains an extensive critique of liberal theological assessments of the Incarnation and its meaning. • Interacts with orthodox protestant views, including those of John Stott on mission. • One of the few books written on this subject-area. • With contributions from Michael Ovey, Chris Green, Carl Trueman, David Peterson and Timothy Ward.

Description : The first of von Speyr's scriptural commentaries, focusing on her reflections on the first five chapters of John and the beginning of the public life of Our Lord. She shares moving meditations on such profound and dramatic scenes as the witness of John the Baptist, the call of the disciples, the wedding at Cana, the cleansing of the money-changers in the temple, the Samaritan woman, etc. The combination of the Scripture verses and her meditations provide rich nourishment for prayer and spiritual reading. This series is particularly important because the spirituality of St. John, the Apostle of Divine Love, was the central source of von Speyr's own inspiration and spiritual life.
