Description : You Need a Foundation That You Can Build Your Life Upon! Many Christians have a limited understanding of basic Bible doctrine, and this lack of knowledge breeds frustration and robs them of many blessings that belong to them as believers. Often they find themselves stumbling in the same areas over and over, missing out on the vibrant Christian life they know they should be experiencing. In this book, Rick Renner puts these frustrations to rest as he guides the reader through the six basic doctrines every believer should know so that he can build his life in Christ on a solid foundation of Scripture and sound doctrine. Rick teaches: Repentance -- what it is, what it isn't, and how to do it. What is saving faith? Three baptisms in the New Testament. What is the laying on of hands? The doctrines of resurrection and eternal judgment. A transplant that will save your life. The missing link in many churches today and how it is affecting the whole Body of Christ. What you will learn in these pages will help lay a foundation underneath your life -- or fortify the foundation that has already been laid -- so that you can live the life of fulfillment and contentment in Christ that God intends for you.

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 : In God's School (A L' Ecole de Dieu) is foundational Christian instruction. It follows the outline of John Calvin's Geneva Catechism along with the Heidelberg Catechism. According to the ancient practice of the church, In God's School instructs in doctrine, expounding the Apostles' Creed. It enriches common evangelical treatments of these subjects by including fine sections on the church and the ministry of Word and sacraments as means of grace. It lays out basic Christian ethics by expounding the Ten Commandments. It teaches Christian worship by explaining the Lord's Prayer. This book may be used over the course of a school year. Students read a chapter each week. It also familiarizes students with the fine catechetical materials of the Protestant Reformation. Each chapter is divided into daily readings that include Scripture, so the student receives doctrinal teaching along with daily Bible study. Perhaps the greatest strength of In God's School is the presentation of the Commandments and Prayer. John Calvin's stress on the grace of God shines through ethical exhortation. Maturity in Christ comes from a growing knowledge of God through the gospel of his Son, a clearer understanding of the life he calls us to walk before him, and the Spirit's love and strength. With spiritual wisdom and rigor, Pierre Marcel leads us in knowing God.

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 : Is there a secret to growing strong in faith? Yes. Are you troubled by Christians who preach one way but live another? Does the Bible contain simple principles to ensure your life never collapses under the strains of everyday life? Author and pastor Casey Sabella has served in pastoral ministry for over forty years, knowing fellow believers' heartache who start strong but end poorly. Casey has condensed the principles of Hebrews 6:1,2 into a guide that will help you understand and become grounded in the same faith possessed by first-century believers. You'll discover why so many mistake mental assent for genuine repentance. What does it mean to have faith in God? Most confuse faith with hope and become disappointed. Is water baptism essential to salvation? What about infant baptism? Is it valid? Does belonging to a church matter, or can we serve God without joining a local gathering of believers? What is the baptism with the Holy Spirit? Are all Christians baptized with the Holy Spirit? Is speaking with tongues for today? What about physical healing? Why is laying on of hands a foundation stone? Is there a real hell? What about the resurrection? These are many of the questions Casey asks and answers while inviting you to investigate these truths yourself. Drawing from over four decades in pastoral ministry, Casey will help you take crucial steps towards lifelong spiritual transformation. Building on the foundation laid out for us in scripture, you will be empowered to meet any challenge life throws your way. Foundations is designed for individuals or groups who want to get serious about their relationship with God. Each chapter is followed by practical questions to increase understanding and use individually or in a small group study. God destines every Christ-follower to become a spiritual powerhouse and resource to others. If you're tired of a life governed by circumstances, I can help you experience lasting change.

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 : I am part of a vast ocean of Christians that view the Word of God through a different set of eyes than those of many pastors, professors, and church staff members. I have interest in the deep theology of scripture and recognize my need to be exposed to and covered by the Word of God similar to that of my "called" brothers in Christ. Yet I want it delivered to me in a simple "worker's language." Recent translations have strived toward this end and have made headway. Yet the finished product is still from scholars that often describe the original transcripts from a theological standpoint rather than a worker's standpoint. The Eastern Standard Version (ESV) published in 2001 was written to carefully weigh accuracy against the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek scrolls. It stands as one of the better accepted of sound English Bible Translations. Because of its wide acceptance, I have used this translation for my resource. I have certainly considered a host of opinions and writings of a host of scholars but my source of authenticity has always been God's Word. In writing this book, I strongly encourage our religious leaders to go back to the reading, writing, and arithmetic basics of God's Word. Just as I believe, we need to get back to the basics in educating our children in school in reading, writing, and arithmetic, we also need to get back to the reading, writing, and arithmetic basics in educating God's people in church. Perhaps such consideration is "out of touch" with the advanced theology of today. As a layman, not an ordained or seminary graduate, I might be considered a "doctrine dummy." This book, entitled "Doctrine for Dummies" is written for this vast ocean of people. We are not dummy people, but we are somewhat hindered in our study by deep theological doctrine. This book tries to take us back to reading, writing, and arithmetic doctrine.

Description : For more than six decades, the brothers Torrance--Thomas, James and David—have had a tremendous influence on the theological world. They and particularly TF Torrance, have a devoted following world-wide and particularly in the US. Their high view of the fully human, fully divine Jesus is built upon the foundation of the Patristic writers, and the great Reformers from Calvin to Barth. Working in both pastoral and academic settings, the Torrances have stressed the profound implications of Christology for the mission of their Church and the daily life of Christians. Today, a generation of their students around the world find themselves in positions of pastoral and theological leadership. The focus of this book is the person of Christ (christology), a subject central to the Torrance theological vision and one which has had great influence on the presbyterian church. The contributors explore the contemporary relevance of Torrance Christology in such areas as the nature of Christ, the atonement, the ministry of the Church, epistemology and inclusion in Christ. The result is a book that offers both a fresh introduction to the Torrance tradition even as it advances the Torrance thought along fresh avenues of theological exploration.

Description : The foundation of any given thing is the basis upon which it stands or is supported. It is the body or ground upon which something is built or overlaid. Whether natural, physical or spiritual, the foundation of something or someone is vital to their strength, growth, and further development. For us christians, we must clearly articulate what it is that constitutes the foundation upon which we will build, in concert with God, the beautiful, and enduring edifice of our lives and destinies. Therefore, it is both crucial and essential for us as believers, to first and foremost establish the truth upon which our faith stands, before any further meaningful knowledge can be imparted that will help us build our lives successfully. This book will challenge you to revisit your roots in God, deepen your understanding of the rudiments of your walk of faith, while empowering you to give the word of God its rightful place in your life.
