Everyday Holiness Book Excerpt:

Everyday Holiness presents the spiritual journey to and with Christ as possible, noble, challenging, and rewarding. It describes the many aspects of holiness and how it is essential to our growth in Christ. Holiness is the most important developmental area in life and the greatest goal to which we can aspire. The Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales wrote: “All of us can attain Christian virtue and holiness no matter in what condition of life we live and no matter what our life’s work may be.” This book should be read slowly, prayerfully, and seriously. It invites us to ponder the meaning of life and how holiness benefits every aspect of our church, our society, and ourselves. Because all good things lead to God, the book infuses a deeper meaning into the ordinary circumstances of daily life, thus showing how holiness is not a static reality but a dynamic force that transforms every aspect of our day. The book is replete with concrete examples and practical illustrations that show how living holiness is possible today. Indeed, holiness is our greatest need, deepest joy, and hardest challenge. Everyday Holiness is for everyone who wants to love God more and serve him better.

Everyday Holiness Book Excerpt:

Mussar is an illuminating, approachable, and highly practical set of teachings for cultivating personal growth and spiritual realization in the midst of day-to-day life. Here is an accessible and inspiring introduction to this Jewish spiritual path, which until lately has been best known in the world of Orthodox Judaism. The core teaching of Mussar is that our deepest essence is inherently pure and holy, but this inner radiance is obscured by extremes of emotion, desire, and bad habits. Our work in life is to uncover the brilliant light of the soul. The Mussar masters developed transformative teachings and practices—some of which are contemplative, some of which focus on how we relate to others in daily life—to help us to heal and refine ourselves.

The Church Made Flesh Book Excerpt:

In his book, The Church Made Flesh, Alan takes the spiritual pulse of the Pentecostal/Apostolic Church and lays bare its true condition. Tapping into a rich spiritual repertoire of experiences, both anecdotal and other erudite sources, this book is a tour de force that revisits bedrock issues such as the cost of discipleship, church-planting and church order, among others. Employing a fruitful dialectic of tension, these issues are explored in the intersection between the nascent Apostolic Church of the first century AD and its contemporary incarnation. The denouement is an incisive, accessible, candid and profound exposition that is a must in every discerning minister and layperson’s library. —Paul Thomas, PhD (Education, King’s College, London) Lecturer, University of Olso, Norway Institute for Pedagogy Comparative and International Education Give yourself this book and then help God solve the next vexing problem in the North American Apostolic church. Sorry – this book is not designed to grace the shelf of your library. You should really read it on your knees. Embark on your journey with tears in your eyes. —Bishop Paul Reynolds International Honorary General Presbyter United Pentecostal Church International The Church Made Flesh challenges today’s commonly adopted church system of attraction by comparing it the 1st century’s church model which exercised Apostolic authority by going out to the world. Without apology Alan combats the readers thinking on how well today’s church is executing the Great Commission and touching the lives of people of all nations. For those that are ready to effect change in this world the biblical way, this is a book that you must not only have but study and wrestle with. —Michael Whitton, Minister of Operations, Global Apostolic Ministries Toronto, Canada

Daily actions and thought exercises to set you on an easier and more effective path towards better health. “If you read one book on healing, this is it!”—Marilyn Paul, PhD, bestselling author of An Oasis in Time Almost half of Americans struggle with illness—everything from heart disease, diabetes, and lupus to fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, or chronic pain. More than a third of our population is obese. As a nation, we are sick—and getting sicker, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Janette, who suffered with chronic illness for six years, knows how difficult it can be to get your health back. So instead of prescribing a specific treatment, diet, or exercise routine, Everyday Healing provides daily action steps to help you eliminate old habits and establish new paths to health. It offers practical guidance on overcoming healing challenges—from organizing your kitchen in order to cook healthier meals and boosting your confidence that you can heal, to having a tough conversation with an unsupportive spouse. Readers of Everyday Healing will find: Personal stories and medical studies that demonstrate the power of each daily action step. Tips to effectively research and evaluate new treatment options. Tools to manage tough emotions and create a fabulous support team. Organizing principles to routinize healthy eating, sleeping, and exercise. “In over fifteen years of medical practice, I’ve learned that each individual’s healing process is unique. In that regard, Everyday Healing is a breath of fresh air. Instead of giving you a one-size-fits-all prescription, Janette lovingly provides the tools to find your own path to health and stick to it. It’s a must-read for anyone seeking real healing.”—Andrew D. Shiller, MD, founder of Integrative Rehabilitation Medicine

Fioretti The Little Flowers of Pope Francis Book Excerpt:

Andrea Tornielli, the foremost "Vatican Insider" journalist, offers inspiring stories, incidents, encounters, and excerpts from the writings and talks of Pope Francis through his first year as Pope. These "little flowers" add up to a powerful witness by Pope Francis of "heartwarming stories of the Gospel in action", and they refl ect on various spiritual and social themes important to the Pope: mercy, forgiveness, charity, prayer, justice, the Eucharist, Our Lady, and much more. The title echoes the Little Flowers of Saint Francis, the famous collection of stories about the beloved Francis of Assisi, whose name the Pope adopted for himself. The Pope's little gestures and big ones, the minor or major choices he has made each day, his ability to meet everyone and to speak to everyone, his simple way of being himselfÑ these things have made Francis not only credible but, above all, close. The Pope is perceived by many, many people throughout the world as "one of us". Seeing him embrace the sick, the suffering, and the children, one understands why this is so. Fioretti offers a wonderful collection of insightful fragments from various aspects of the life of the Pope in his first year that will help the reader become better acquainted with the immensely popular Bishop of Rome who, as the first South American pope, came "from the end of the earth".

A Saint of Our Own Book Excerpt:

What drove U.S. Catholics in their arduous quest, full of twists and turns over more than a century, to win an American saint? The absence of American names in the canon of the saints had left many of the faithful feeling spiritually unmoored. But while canonization may be fundamentally about holiness, it is never only about holiness, reveals Kathleen Sprows Cummings in this panoramic, passionate chronicle of American sanctity. Catholics had another reason for petitioning the Vatican to acknowledge an American holy hero. A home-grown saint would serve as a mediator between heaven and earth, yes, but also between Catholicism and American culture. Throughout much of U.S. history, the making of a saint was also about the ways in which the members of a minority religious group defined, defended, and celebrated their identities as Americans. Their fascinatingly diverse causes for canonization—from Kateri Tekakwitha and Elizabeth Ann Seton to many others that are failed, forgotten, or still under way—represented evolving national values as Catholics made themselves at home. Cummings's vision of American sanctity shows just how much Catholics had at stake in cultivating devotion to men and women perched at the nexus of holiness and American history—until they finally felt little need to prove that they belonged.

The Vertical Self Book Excerpt:

It's time for a return to Radical Holiness. Welcome to the 21st century where you can now purchase and exchange personalities, depending on mood and circumstance; where you are told that you can be anyone you want to be, and identity is no longer based in a sense of self but rather in the imagery you choose at that moment. The Bible contains a radically different way of understanding our identity. The path that God has chosen for us to discover who we really are is the path of holiness. The most exciting thing is that this path is not for otherworldy saints, rather it is a path of earthy, gutsy holiness. It's a path that is not about basing your life on this world or of shunning your desires. Instead, it is about bringing your hopes, your dreams, your brokenness, your desires, your humanness under the Lordship of Christ. By doing this we don’t just discover a new way of living out our faith, we discover a liberating, revolutionary, life-embracing way of being truly human.
