A Brush with God Book Excerpt:

Step-by-step instructions for painting icons, from original drawings through finished product. For more than a thousand years, Eastern Christians have used their hands and hearts to create icons, proclaiming God’s reality in a visible–and breathtakingly beautiful–way. This ancient art is enjoying a renewed interest in the West, as people of faith create icons and use them to meditate on mysteries for which there are no words. A Brush with God is a guide to painting icons and using them in prayer. Written with warmth and energy, it describes the history of icons and examines why they’ve been a spiritual tool for so many centuries. Written from a uniquely Western perspective, the book guides artists–from novices to professionals–through the process of icon painting, using traditional techniques but employing contemporary materials. Included are eight full-color plates of the artist’s icons.

When God Speaks Book Excerpt:

Listening to the voice of God directs us toward a life of joy, contentment, and trust in God in all circumstances. God is always with us. When we take the time to pray, listen, to reflect, to block out the noise of the world, we can experience God’s presence. Through the pages of this book, you will come to understand the many ways that God speaks to all of us. As we open our minds and hearts, cultivate the time to be aware and listen, and develop our prayer journey, we draw closer to the heart of God. The author highlights stories from various people who in their ordinary lives discerned His voice and His love for them. Sometimes God’s voice was audible; other times it was through Scripture or a divine revelation. No matter what form God chose to communicate, it was every bit as meaningful. One person shares how he listened to God’s voice through divine intervention guiding him to make a life-changing decision for his family. Another heard the voice of God through a series of events as she visited patients in hospitals and nursing homes. Still another meets God through the beauty of nature. God spoke to the saints and prophets of the past—and He continues to speak to us today. Not all voices are from God. It is important to discern that which brings peace and that which divides and causes unrest. When God Speaks is a series of uplifting and personal stories that will help the reader to discern the difference. The author’s hope is that you will recall similar occurrences of unexplainable joy in your own lives, or a strong passion calling you to service. This book can be used by small faith groups in churches and by book clubs. It would appeal to youth groups, senior groups, Cursillo or Emmaus groups, pastors, and those wanting to deepen their prayerful relationship with God.

Affirming the Touch of God Book Excerpt:

Both Ignatius of Loyola and Jonathan Edwards wrote about the theme of Christian discernment. Evan B. Howard clarifies patterns of Christian discernment common to both Roman Catholics and Protestants. Yet his study extends analysis further; through a synthesis of cognitive psychology and religious philosophy, Howard provides greater specification of the roles of affectivity in discernment. This will allow spiritual advisors to better guide men and women into an effective discernment process. Psychologists, philosophers, and students of religion will find this book highly valuable.

Drakas Book Excerpt:

THINK ABOUT HISTORY. NOW MAKE IT WORSE . . . The Domination of the Draka begins as a British possession in Africa, but soon becomes far more. Absorbing refugees after the American Revolution, and later the Civil War, the Draka become a people bred to rule with an iron fist. They permanently enslave the peoples of Africa, when they do not simply kill them. But this does not slake the Draka thirst for power. Sweeping across the world, the Draka empire engulfs nation after nation, shackling into servitude all who are not Draka. Europe, Asia, and finally all the Earth and its colonies throughout the Solar System fall before the might of the Draka. But empires are not faceless monoliths; they are made of individuals, complex humans with their own hopes and dreams. And so one might ask: Who are the Draka What sort of people does the Domination rule The Draka would have many different answers . . . . . . and this is their story.

The Second Deception of Eve Book Excerpt:

The Second Deception of Eve reveals the true plot behind the Second Adam's wife, the Church. Galatians 6:7 says, "Don't be deceived, God is not mocked [He will not be made a fool of], whatever you sow, that is what you will reap!" In this book, you will learn the True Love story of God for Man, and why He used Israel to paint His Masterpiece of love for all mankind. This book will give readers a deeper look inside the love of a husband and wife (Adam and Eve) in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament. It offers insight on why Satan didn't have to make a significant effort to deceive Eve, and why they were both vulnerable and didn't put up much of a fight. What exactly is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit? Are we living in the Last Days? What is referred to as the Falling Away of the Church (The Great Apostasy), as mentioned in 1 Timothy 4:1? You'll be blown away by what you discover! Finally, you will discover a rare revelation about Eve in her current evolved state of evil, from Genesis to Jude, including God's provision for her deliverance. The eyes of your understanding will be opened, and you'll receive a fresh revelation of God's love and how you should live to please Him. Beware! Your deeds will be made manifest! But you can truly receive your healing and deliverance.

The Nature of God as Revealed in Jesus Book Excerpt:

Want to better understand God? God most fully revealed Himself in Jesus of Nazareth. While trying to follow the sequence of events of Jesus' life from His baptism to His crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension, the author examines Jesus in his effort to unveil the nature of God. Jesus was conceived by God's Holy Spirit, declared by God to be His Son at Jesus' baptism and on the Mt. of Transfiguration. After having lived with Jesus for roughly three years, although no "Christian doctrine" had yet been established, the Apostle John saw that Jesus was God in human flesh. Yet, two thousand years into the Christian era, many Christians live with an Old Testament perception of the nature of God, sounding and acting as if Jesus, the Christ, had never walked on planet Earth.

Embracing Grace Book Excerpt:

This fascinating book explains that the gospel is about the restoration of "cracked Eikons" (fallen humans) so that humans can be in union with God and in communion with the saints. In the candid and lucid style that has made McKnight's The Jesus Creed so appealing to thousands of pastors, lay leaders, and everyday people who are searching for a more authentic faith, he encourages all Christians to recognize the simple, yet potentially transforming truth of the gospel message: God seeks to restore us to wholeness not only to make us better individuals, but to form a community of Jesus, a society in which humans strive to be in union with God and in communion with others.

Inventing God s Law Book Excerpt:

Most scholars believe that the numerous similarities between the Covenant Code (Exodus 20:23-23:19) and Mesopotamian law collections, especially the Laws of Hammurabi, which date to around 1750 BCE, are due to oral tradition that extended from the second to the first millennium. This book offers a fundamentally new understanding of the Covenant Code, arguing that it depends directly and primarily upon the Laws of Hammurabi and that the use of this source text occurred during the Neo-Assyrian period, sometime between 740-640 BCE, when Mesopotamia exerted strong and continuous political and cultural influence over the kingdoms of Israel and Judah and a time when the Laws of Hammurabi were actively copied in Mesopotamia as a literary-canonical text. The study offers significant new evidence demonstrating that a model of literary dependence is the only viable explanation for the work. It further examines the compositional logic used in transforming the source text to produce the Covenant Code, thus providing a commentary to the biblical composition from the new theoretical perspective. This analysis shows that the Covenant Code is primarily a creative academic work rather than a repository of laws practiced by Israelites or Judeans over the course of their history. The Covenant Code, too, is an ideological work, which transformed a paradigmatic and prestigious legal text of Israel's and Judah's imperial overlords into a statement symbolically countering foreign hegemony. The study goes further to study the relationship of the Covenant Code to the narrative of the book of Exodus and explores how this may relate to the development of the Pentateuch as a whole.

Do It God s Way and Get God s Results Book Excerpt:

Jesus routinely taught with parables and earthly stories that resonated with people’s daily experiences. His lessons were personable and memorable, and enabled his followers to grasp profound spiritual revelations of the word of God. In Do it God’s Way and Get God’s Results, Pastor Roy Bacon emulates Jesus’ approach. He entwines authentic, thought-provoking anecdotes with each chapter theme to present Biblical truths more lucidly and reveal the benefits of choosing God’s way in every aspect of life. Throughout the book, he examines two alternatives to life’s results: choosing God’s way of doing things or choosing our way. The final chapter is a brief portrait of the life of Jesus Christ, our greatest example of how to do things God’s way and get His results. Do it God’s Way and Get God’s Results is not a how-to guide for overnight success, but biblically grounded advice for obtaining God’s best, now and in your future.
