Description : 'I found myself praying from Christian Foundations in new ways. Of course, like most academics, I had heard it all before. But I haven't- not this way, at least. It was truly an experience of talking to God while thinking about God- not a bad way to do theology...Needless to say, I will use it with my undergraduates.' -Dr. Thomas Groome, Boston College

Description : Jesus called his followers first and foremost to become disciples. Sadly a great many of those who have made a profession of faith fall by the wayside and never become true disciples, because they have never been carefully nurtured. This short course by evangelist Michael Green is designed to help people move from decision to discipleship. Used across four continents, it is a wonderfully effective resource that works for both small groups and individuals. This book will guide those who have recently come to faith and those seeking faith in how to become a disciple of Jesus. It will point the way to fruitfulness and life!

Description : Storm clouds are on the horizon and are hovering over the Judeo-Christian community. Returning to God’s Word is our only hope for these troubled times. On the cusp of these changing times, a remnant is being identified and “called out” by the Holy Spirit to return to the foundational roots of Christianity. The First Century Church of Jesus’ Apostles was vastly different from the church of today. Their foundational strength was built upon the Rock of Jesus Christ and was founded upon the Biblical (Hebrew/Jewish) customs of Jesus Christ and His disciples. This book is a basic handbook—a “101 Primer”—for reconciliation and restoration. Its exposure to the rich Hebraic customs and traditions of Jesus’ day will bring a refreshing breath to traditional Christianity. It’s a call to return to “the faith once delivered to the saints,” to prepare for eternity in God’s city, the New Jerusalem.

Description : Providing structure for thinking seriously about worship as a part of Christian faith and experience, Foundations of Christian Worship addresses the question, what is Christian worship and why do Christians worship as they do? Beginning with an overview of the theological, biblical, historical, and anthropological foundations of Christian worship, Susan J. White then turns to discussing its components--prayer, creeds, music, time, ritual, and art. Later, she delves into the nourishment of the Christian life and the major worship events throughout the human life cycle. Finally, she discusses contemporary challenges to Christian worship and concludes with case studies for further exploration. With helpful appendixes and a glossary of liturgical terms, Susan White's Foundations of Christian Worship is an excellent primer for seminary students and ministers early in their careers.

Description : This generation of parents are better educated and most probably the richest in history but most parents have grown to embrace the fact that the material gain from their labour outweighs everything to the point of setting aside their godly responsibility to their family. The sphere of materialism is so strong that they become disillusioned about the importance of moral and spiritual values. The original intention of building a strong Christian family foundation becomes secondary. Do not ignore the signs of the times: the Christian family is in extreme danger of losing its identity. We need help! The Christian family needs help! The book covers those vital elements in building and maintaining a strong Christian family foundation. You'll discover how to reinforce relationships by clearly illustrating the complementary roles of each member of the family, use your God-given responsibility to build a strong foundation for your home on the rock-solid wisdom, love and understanding, promote the total development and preservation of the family, identify potential family problems and overcome crisis, and learn, act, and teach family values and create strong Christian legacy. Unless we go back to the very foundation of a loving home ruled with wisdom and understanding, with Jesus Christ and the center, the proliferation of commercialism, peer pressure and the obligations imposed by society will press on. You need to invest time and do your homework.

Description : For decades, Engelhardt has alluded to the ethics that binds moral friends. While his 'Foundations of Bioethics' explored the sparse ethics binding moral strangers, this long-awaited volume addresses the morality at the foundations of Christian bioethics. The volume opens with an analysis of the marginalization of Christian bioethics in the 1970s and the irremedial shortcomings of secular ethics in general. Drawing on the Christianity of the first millennium, Engelhardt provides the ontological and epistemological foundations for a Christian bioethics that can remedy the onesidedness of a secular bioethics and supply the bases for a Christian bioethics. The volume then addresses issues from abortion, third-party-assisted reproduction, and cloning, to withholding and withdrawing treatment, physician-assisted suicide, and euthanasia. Practices such as free and informed consent are relocated within a traditional Christian morality. Attention is also given to the allocation of scarce resources in health care, and to the challenge of maintaining the Christian identity of physicians, nurses, patients, and health care institutions in a culture that is now post-Christian.

Description : Winner of a 2004 ECPA Gold Medallion Award! Winner of an Award of Excellence in the 2003 Chicago Book Clinic! What is real? What is truth? What can we know? What should we believe? What should we do and why? Is there a God? Can we know him? Do Christian doctrines make sense? Can we believe in God in the face of evil? These are fundamental questions that any thinking person wants answers to. These are questions that philosophy addresses. And the answers we give to these kinds of questions serve as the the foundation stones for consrtucting any kind of worldview. In Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview J.P. Moreland and William Lane Craig offer a comprehensive introduction to philosophy from a Christian perspective. In their broad sweep they seek to introduce readers to the principal subdisciplines of philosophy, including epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of science, ethics and philosophy of religion. They do so with characteristic clarity and incisiveness. Arguments are clearly outlined, and rival theories are presented with fairness and accuracy. Philosophy, they contend, aids Christians in the tasks of apologetics, polemics and systematic theology. It reflects our having been made in the image of God, helps us to extend biblical teaching into areas not expressly addressed in Scripture, facilitates the spiritual discipline of study, enhances the boldness and self-image of the Christian community, and is requisite to the essential task of integrating faith and learning. Here is a lively and thorough introduction to philosophy for all who want to know reality.

Description : There was a time when society was inspired by Christian principles. Art, government, society emulated, as much as possible, the search for perfection dictated by the call to virtue. Ultimately, the twentieth century's many disasters and Christendom's failure to stop revolution and world war have discredited Christianity itself in the eyes of many. Nevertheless, I am convinced that only Christianity can revitalize a culture that has lost most of its connection with beauty and that glorifies banality, variety, and diversity as ends in themselves. However, this would not be a retread of historical Christendom, but a new vision, predicated on the new realities of an increasingly Neo-pagan and Transhumanist West. According to Ivan Ilyin, "The Gospel teaches not flight from the world, but the Christianization of the world. Thus, the sciences, the arts, politics, and the social order can all be those spiritual hands with which the Christian takes the world. And the calling of a Christian is not to chop off those hands, but to imbue their work and toil with the living spirit of Christ. Christianity has a great calling, which many do not ever realize. This purpose can be defined as the creation of a Christian culture." This book is Ivan Ilyin's spiritual and practical handbook at creating Christian culture in an increasingly post-Christian world.

Description : In the study of Christian liturgical music, the first three centuries of the Christian era are foundational. Seldom, however, does this period receive serious attention from scholars. One of the reasons for this oversight is the fluid auditory environment of this period, and the inadequacy of the Western concept of "music" to describe this environment. Foundations of Christian Music addresses this lacuna by exploring the auditory environment of first-century CE Judaism and emerging Christianity until the time of Constantine (d. 337). Through a consideration of the text, styles, forms, performance, and settings of Jewish and early Christian worship, Foundations offers an unusually rich perspective on the lyrical nature of emerging Christian worship.

Description : Milton attended church while growing up in Richmond, Virginia; though it was mostly just part of the family's Sunday routine before dinner and the football game. After graduating from the University of Richmond, Milton entered the U.S. Coast Guard's Officer Candidate School in 1963. Thus began a twenty year career that took him all over the country, including assignments in Viet Nam, Guam and Hawaii. It was in Mayport, Florida, while serving as captain of a Coast Guard buoy tender, that Milton accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior. This experience changed his whole outlook on life and gave him a hunger and thirst for the word of God that continues to drive him today. Since his retirement from the military, Milton has served on church pastoral staff and as lay volunteer in many capacities. In 1989 he co-founded Prison Fellowship Guam and has been involved in prison ministry for the last 21 years, including three years as a prison chaplain. Milton has seen first hand how the power of God's truth changes lives. Milton also observed that many church members were lukewarm in their Christian walk because they lacked an understanding of the foundational truths of Christianity; and therefore hesitated to even share their Christian faith with another. This book is his effort to help those who truly desire a "Solid Foundation" for their future spiritual growth. Milton and his wife, Olivia, live in Gatesville, Texas. He is available for speaking to groups and churches. You may reach him via e-mail at [email protected] or by letter at PO Box 1073, Gatesville, Texas, 76528.

Description : The Philosophy of the Law Idea (PLI) analyzes the manner in which religious beliefs control scientific theorizing. Religious beliefs control philosophical overviews of reality. Overviews of reality, also called ontologies, try to discover and disclose the essential nature of reality. They are concerned with what kinds of things exist and with the connections between the various types of properties and laws in human experience. Among such overviews are the biblically consistent overview provided by the PLI and certain humanist mathematicist and subjectivist overviews. The science of statistical inference seeks to evaluate the credibility of scientific hypotheses given empirical data. This essay reviews various popular paradigms, or systems of theories, concerning the ways that credibility may be evaluated, and identifies some ways that these religiously controlled overviews of reality have, in turn, controlled statistical paradigms. In particular, one paradigm harmonizes with the PLI's overview; another, with the subjectivist overview; and two others, with the mathematicist overview.

Description : In the last quarter of the twentieth century, a number of studies have appeared on 1 Peter under different perspectives. Attention however has been centred on the letter as a whole, and studies dealing with particular parts of the letter are still wanting. The present study is a contribution in that respect. The pericope studied here, 1, 13-25, is set in the perspective of the basic literary questions of the letter, such as the authorship and date, the unity and literary genre, and structure. Peter, a letter written to encourage and strengthen in the faith groups of Christians in Asia Minor undergoing suffering, is paraenetic in character; and this feature is obvious in the segment studied. The Anatolian Christians, who are advised to conduct themselves in holiness by reverential fear of God and love of their brothers, are reminded of the dignity of their Christian vocation, for they have been redeemed through the precious blood of Christ, and begotten anew through the living and abiding Word of God. The study focuses on these teachings upon which the author bases his directives for the Christian way of life. Thus it brings to the fore the distinctive Theology, the ontological Christology of logos and its functional dimension. In conclusion, by way of theological reflection, an actualization of the soteriology of the pericope in the author's native South Asian context is also attempted.

Description : An Accessible Introduction to Gregory of Nazianzus Brian Matz, a respected scholar of the history of Christianity, provides an accessible and erudite introduction to the thought of fourth-century church father Gregory of Nazianzus. Matz explores Gregory's homilies, especially those that reveal Gregory's affirmation of the full deity of the Holy Spirit, and shows the importance of Gregory's work for contemporary theology and spirituality. This work demonstrates a patristic approach to reading the Bible and promotes a vision for the Christian life that is theological, pastoral, and philosophical. Gregory of Nazianzus is the fourth book in a series on the church fathers edited by Hans Boersma and Matthew Levering.

Description : In The Last Things Donald G. Bloesch takes up difficult and sometimes controversial themes such as the coming of the kingdom of God, the return of Jesus Christ, the life hereafter, the millennial hope, the final judgment, hell, heaven, purgatory and paradise. Wrestling with biblical texts that often take metaphorical form, Bloesch avoids rationalistic reductionism as well as timid agnosticism. While he acknowledges mystery and even paradox, Bloesch finds biblical revelation much more than sufficient to illuminate the central truths of a Christian hope articulated throughout the history of the church. The Last Things is not just a review of past Christian eschatology but a fresh articulation of the grace and glory of God yet to be consummated. The triumph of the grace of Jesus Christ and the dawning of hope beckon us to reach out in the power of the Spirit to receive that blessed future and the promise to renew the life of the church universal today.

Description : Secular textbooks now fill our classrooms, while the Ten Commandments have been removed from their walls. Is this the vision held by those who worked to found this nation? What faith did our founding fathers truly believe and practice in their daily lives, and what does it really matter for us? Were they God-fearing, Bible-believing Christians or simply enlightened Deists, Transcendentalists, and Unitarians? Today the debate rages on, becoming a polarizing cultural issue, the outcome of which will lead to a vastly different nation in the years ahead. This probing study: Examines the facts that have created debate for years among educators, scholars, and historians Studies the intimate papers, diaries, and letters of the founders themselves Helps solve this mystery of our nation's past so that we can best guide its future. Meticulously documented, Faith of Our Founding Fathers by best-selling author Tim LaHaye details the Christian principles of these early Americans, and notes how the argument for the separation of church and state has led us to the vast secularization of our culture. Studying the original writings of those who shaped this nation will help Christians present the case for renewing the former vision for this great country.
