Description : We all struggle at times to hold together the holiness and the love of God, and can fall into problems such as liberalism and universalism on the one hand, or legalism and moralism on the other. However, what David Wells calls God's 'holy-love' is right at the heart of the incarnation and cross of Jesus - and understanding how God's holiness is inextricably bound to his love is what sets apart Christian spirituality from other spiritualities, what characterizes authentic Christian worship, and what defines our life of service in the world. Building on years of research and teaching, Wells offers a remedy for evangelicalism's often superficial theology and weightless conception of God. He examines and offers solutions to two particular problems facing the contemporary church: the pressure to conform to cultural norms, and the danger of living in an age of constant distraction. This accessible, edifying and challenging volume helps us to cultivate a balanced vision of the meaning of God-centredness in our current context.

Description : The purpose of this study guide is to seek answers to questions such as how can we learn to live centred in God's loving presence, in a way that allows all our activity to flow from that centre? How can we experience this change of heart that will allow us to know God's presence with us in the midst of the busyness of our lives? The answers are taken from Scripture. We will listen as Jesus calls us to live with eyes wide open to what matters most in life, even as we entrust ourselves to God's care so we can live in the present, where God is with us, providing for us. We will hear the invitation to draw the strength we need for the day from God, the Source of all life. We will learn to open ourselves throughout the day to God as we seek God's wisdom, express our gratitude and begin to rest and rely more deeply in God 's presence with us. We will explore ways of conversing with God in the midst of the whirlwind of life and come to see our day's work as a labour of love for God and as the joyful service of kneeling before all others with Jesus.

Description : Writing on the lectionary texts from Job, Stroman deals with extremely contemporary issues. We discover in these messages that Job's struggles are the same as ours. The texts from Ruth and 1 Samuel introduce us to four important Old Testament women: Naomi, Orpah, Ruth, and Hannah. They all play an important role in the biblical narrative, as well as providing insight into vital current issues. Chapters include: - Taking the Good With the Bad -- (Job 1:1; 2:1-10) - Making Our Feelings Known -- (Job 23:1-9, 16-17) - The Tale of Three Women -- (Ruth 1:1-8) - God Remembers -- (1 Samuel 1:4-20) ... and more! John A. Stroman recently served as Lecturer in New Testament Studies at Trinity Theological College in Accra, Ghana (West Africa). Prior to that he was senior pastor of the 3,000-member Pasadena Community Church (United Methodist) in St. Petersburg, Florida. Stroman served as a United Methodist minister for 38 years in the Southern New Jersey and Florida Conferences. He also serves on the Florida Conference Board of Trustees, the Board of Directors of the Florida United Methodist Children's Home, and the Advisory Council of Bethune-Cookman College. He has written numerous articles in addition to his six books.

Description : In The Comforting Whirlwind, acclaimed environmentalist and writer Bill McKibben turns to the biblical book of Job and its awesome depiction of creation to demonstrate our need to embrace a bold new paradigm for living if we hope to reverse the current trend of ecological destruction. With reference to the consequences of our poorly considered and self-centered environmental practices—global warming, ozone degradation, deforestation—McKibben combines modern science and timeless biblical wisdom to make the case that growth and economic progress are not only undesirable but deadly. If we continue to accelerate the pace of development, we will inevitably complete the “decreation” of our planet and everything on it, including ourselves. In his signature lyrical prose, and using Stephen Mitchell's powerful translation of Job, McKibben calls readers to truly appreciate both the majesty of creation and humanity's rightful—and responsible—place in it.

Description : "Little children, it is the last hour..." So wrote the beloved apostle John. Two thousand years later we are living in the final moments of history. God's people are beginning to lift up their heads, knowing their redemption draws near. Where are we in the prophetic timetable? What momentous event of Bible prophecy will we witness next? Will America be judged before the rapture of the church? Reaping the Whirlwind begins with a primer on the nature of judgment and wrath. Through Jesus' eyes we see God as neither a harmless Teddy bear nor a vengeful tyrant, but as Agape, the Consuming Fire. We can then fearlessly examine the ancient prophesies about America. We can lay aside the popular fables that have lulled us to sleep. By casting aside false comfort, we are free to receive God's comfort, which stirs us up to love and good works. Reaping the Whirlwind reveals the heart of God for His people living in the midst of Babylon America. It is written for the mature Christian, the new believer and the seeking unbeliever. Let those who have ears to hear, hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church. A.P. Watchman A.P. Watchman has been walking with the Lord for thirty years, loving His church, and ministering in the capacity of prophet, teacher and evangelist. He currently resides in Sacramento, California.

Description : When a powerful EF-4 tornado with winds in excess of 200 miles per hour slammed the Union University campus on February 5, 2008, destroying eighteen dormitory buildings and causing $40 million in damage, the immediate assumption was that dozens if not hundreds of lives would have been lost. Miraculously, nobody died, and the next morning major media outlets flocked to Jackson, Tennessee, where Union students and faculty credited God for their survival and got to share their faith with millions worldwide. God in the Whirlwind recounts the entire experience through twenty eye-of-the-storm accounts from those who saw the walls and ceilings crashing down upon them and felt their ears pop as the pressure dropped, from anxious parents who waited for their child’s call, and from Union leaders who marvel at the university’s unbroken spirit in the face of such devastation. This inspiring book also includes eighty photographs that visualize God’s mighty hand upon nature and his gentle hand of grace.

Description : ÒThis book is concerned with why the world is not such an easy place in which to live. Human beings, as its apparently most sentient creatures, live daily in a morally ambiguous environment. Most of us experience contentment, happiness, and even profound joy. But these experiences are all too often interspersed or punctuated with unwarranted suffering, excruciating pain, and sometimes irrational violence. Although human life may at times seem like heaven on earth, it can also be more like scenes from a Kafka novel or a scarred canvas of Edvard Munch. This book is primarily concerned with the problem of reconciling these two kinds of experiences with belief in a God who is said to be all good, all knowing, and all powerful. ÒThroughout the book, I continually refer back to three criteria for what I think would count as a good answer to the problem. . . . First, any serious philosophical or theological response to the problem of evil must be true to the tradition from which the problem originates. The problem of evil is a peculiarly Judeo-Christian problem because of the attributes of God in that tradition. . . . Second, any answer to the problem of evil should be one that is logically consistent. . . . Third, a good answer to the problem of evil must take the individual sufferer seriously. --from the Introduction

Description : The new book "In Love with the Whirlwind"-"When God Takes Your Heart by Storm"-a true report of the author's pursuit of relationship with the Godhead: Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and God the Father. Susan Davis shares how God entered her life and how it was not ever the same again for her and her son. Davis' book is written to a generation that has strayed from God to other lovers-entertainment, career, and family and lost its way to its one true love. Davis wants people to think about what this life really means and what are we really supposed to be doing. She talks about life's toughest and deepest questions but does it in a light-hearted way. "I want people to see that God is real, wonderful, and waiting on us all to be in relationship with Him," shares author Susan Davis. "Because God is supernatural-when you get closer to Him you can't help but experience the supernatural and that is what happened to us." Davis playfully explores and examines issues that deals directly with the heart of Jesus, Holy Spirit, and the Father demonstrating that there is only one true life: through Christ. Everything else is a fraud. "In Love with the Whirlwind" is fun, playful, honest, real, and deep all at the same time. http://sites.advancedministry.com/lovethewhirlwind Author email: [email protected] Facebook: in love with the whirlwind *Become a facebook fan of In Love with the Whirlwind* Book Blog: http://lovethewhirlwind.wordpress.com/ Twitter: lovethewhirlwnd

Description : How would ordinary African Christians interpret the figure and book of Job--the quintessential biblical book on suffering--from contexts of extreme poverty, tropical disease, and rampant suffering? How do African Christians culturally understand issues of theodicy and the nature of evil? What role does the devil play in African Pentecostalism? How does the biblical lament empower faith and foster hope for people living with HIV/AIDS? In what way does a theology of (eschatological) hope inform the spirituality and prayers of ordinary African believers in the midst of suffering? Inside the Whirlwind offers insight on these fascinating questions. Based upon the perspectives of Fang Christians in Spanish-speaking Equatorial Guinea (Central Africa), the thematic and theological reflections on evil, suffering, and hope emerging from sermons and Bible studies on the book of Job offer a remarkable window to view the main theological issues shaping grassroots African Christianity in the twenty-first century.

Description : In Love with the Whirlwind tells how the author, Susan Davis finds that when you willingly seek friendship with God, He will lead you into an even more intimate relationship than you ever knew was possible. Davis tells how God shows up in her life and takes her heart by storm. She learns that God cannot be contained in our small ideas of Him and that the scope of God is incredibly greater than we could ever imagine. Davis describes how truly entering into an intimate relationship with the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit cannot really happen without experiencing the supernatural. In Love with the Whirlwind also tells how the author's son encounters God in big ways too. Davis says, "Discover intimacy with Christ and you too will fall in love with the Whirlwind."

Description : Blooming in the Whirlwind, Finding God in a Busy Life by Judy Esway."These words on a card I saw recently express it so well. This is the urgency. Live! And have your blooming in the noise of the whirlwind. The whirlwind...my life. I learned a secret years ago. Whirlwinds can't kill. They're just a bunch of hot air. They come and go and usually just blow themselves out. It is possible to be calm, to grow, to develop, and to be transformed in spite of the stormy weather that often typifies my life. If, that is, I pray. I have to pray...every day." So begins Judy Esway's book of conversational prayers.These brief meditations, based on Scripture, are about the everyday stuff of life that everyone knows about: worrying too much, dealing with stress and anger, rejoicing in the birth of a grandchild, or finding consolation after the death of a loved one. God is her friend, and she hides none of her moods in prayer. But the point is that she prays no matter what kind of mood she is in.She writes, "Really, it's about a love affair - my love affair with God. You may see yourself from time to time as you read, for are there any of us who are very different, deep down inside? We all want to be loved. And the surprising, astonishing truth is...we are!"

Description : Life is not fair. What does this reality imply about the nature of God and the destiny of human beings? In this engaging book, Thompson asserts that "fairness" is not an expectation of the faithful within the Judeo-Christian Scriptures. Biblical narrative discloses the mystery of a paradoxical deity that indwells with the suffering of creation and thereby provides a mercy that exceeds the evasive goal of fairness. The process of healing and redemption of this cracked creation occurs through the tears and suffering of the biblical God whose authentic power is revealed within divine vulnerability and weakness. The Jesus of history truly manifested the fullness of this paradoxical God, for he disclosed the richness of the divine Being by emptying himself and taking the form of a redemptive servant. When the church grasps for power and control, avoids compassionate and costly ministries among the poor and powerless, and renders primary focus upon gaining heavenly rewards, it rejects its Christ-centered mission, relinquishes its paradoxical purpose, and ceases to strive toward becoming an extension of the incarnation. Thompson explores various paradoxical facets of each person of the Trinity and richly illustrates with stories from his vast experience as a parish theologian.

Description : "In recounting the rich narratives of key biblical figures - from Adam and Eve to Noah, Cain, Abraham, Moses, Job, and Jesus - In the Whirlwind paints a surprising picture of the ambivalent, mutually dependent relationship between God and his peoples. Taking the Hebrew and Christian Bibles as a unified whole, Burt traces God's relationship with humanity as it evolves from complete harmony at the outset to continual struggle. In almost every case, God insists on unconditional obedience, while humanity withholds submission and holds God accountable for his promises.

Description : What do you do when, although you are praying to God for the blessed life, life doesn't always turn out the way you expect? The fact of the matter is that times of trial may well be the best of times in light of all God wants to accomplish in the lives of those who love Him. Nowhere in the Bible is this principle seen more clearly than in the Book of Job, "Shall we accept good things from the hand of God and not anything bad?" Job once asked his wife, "Out of the Whirlwind explores this question and all of its implications. In the end and total, God is good.

Description : Christians are being deceived! Until now, the Body of Christ has enjoyed less than the whole truth regarding The End Times, in fact, less than half! Is it any wonder the current End Times doctrines are so muddled and missing volumes of prophetic information? Discover why the prophets Daniel and John concealed important End Times facts. Learn the significance of the Great Consummation message, the second half to the Covenant of Jesus Christ. Confront the final chapters which unveil the grand conclusion to God's extraordinary plans for the greatest story ever told. This Side of the Whirlwind provides evidence our world is heading for more than a single apocalypse! Information within its pages will certify the Great Tribulation is neither God's Wrath nor His plan for Christ's return. Uncover previously hidden biblical facts which confirm the first apocalypse will forcefully separate True Christians (the Sheep) from the Goats. Recent revelation will also prove the Rapture cannot take place before the tribulation period has been fulfilled; thus, negating any possibility a Pre-tribulation Rapture event could exist. All this and more will be firmly established and confirmed in "This Side of the Whirlwind."

Description : Like all of the minor and major prophets in the Old Testament, the primary focus for the book of Hosea is the end time. The message delivered anciently was only a type of what is occurring today. It contains a tremendous warning that must be delivered now! Hosea was written first of all to God’s adulterous wife in this end time. That is how the book is introduced in the very first chapter. That has not been understood before-not until now! God deals with His Church first because that is the most important issue-by far. God’s next major concern, in this book, is the British peoples. After that, God is concerned about the nation of Judah, called “Israel” today. Hosea tells us that those who sow the wind are going to reap the whirlwind! But there is a beautiful ending to his message.
