Description : The greatest challenge for the twenty-first-century church is the lack of catechesis--training in biblical and doctrinal knowledge. As J. I. Packer states, "where wise catechesis has flourished the church has flourished, and where it has been neglected the church has floundered." It is increasingly apparent that we are raising up generations of Christians who often have little idea what they should believe and why they should believe it. Grounded in the Faith takes up that challenge with twenty-four low-prep, in-depth sessions that will ground believers in the basics of their faith. This new innovative guide is a transformational disciple-making tool that leaders can immediately use to activate discipleship in the church. It presents individuals, small groups, and Sunday school classes with a cohesive understanding of historic, sound, biblical theology that serves as a catalyst for deeper intimacy with Christ. It is a user-friendly guide to growth in the Christian faith that covers important topics such as justification, overcoming temptation, sanctification, evidence for the inspiration of the Bible, the value of prayer, the guidance of God, the Trinity, the uniqueness of Christ, and the attributes of God.
Description : You know everyday we sit around and people say you should write a book! Well I have this is it. A three in one so to speak... the statement clearly about what I believe. I follow that up with why I believe these things to be so. And then of course there is a very get real with prayer portion of this little work. This whole work is about reaching an unseen God that is all powerful, all knowing. Who created us all. If you will follow the patterns shown in this little book that you could actually read a small story at a time or a prayer a day would hopefully put a hunger in you to know the God of Creation who loved you so much that when you betrayed Him, His Holiness and His true and faithful, kind and gently love, you who sinned against Him who created you, would find a strong and living relationship with God my Father for yourself. It is my will as it is God's will that NONE should leave this Earth via the portal of death or any other way and find them selves in Hell for Eternity. I mean think about that .. Eternity is a long time and there are NO Friends there. No one can make these choices for you. The decision to ask God to forgive you for your own sin is between you and God alone. Not Mom nor Dad no Sister or Brother can make this choice for you. It is yours and yours alone. God because He was rejected, came in the flesh of Jesus and went to a cruel undeserved death on the cross for you, because of you..... so you could get the forgiveness you so desperately need as do we all. God has offered peace between you and Himself, you must come to God through Jesus His Son there just is no other way..... Think it over but do not delay your decision..... YOUR Eternity depends upon it.... YOUR CHOICE?

Description : From "America's nerviest journalist" (Newsweek)--a breath-taking epic, a magnificent adventure story, and an investigation into the true heroism and courage of the first Americans to conquer space. "Tom Wolfe at his very best" (The New York Times Book Review) Millions of words have poured forth about man's trip to the moon, but until now few people have had a sense of the most engrossing side of the adventure; namely, what went on in the minds of the astronauts themselves - in space, on the moon, and even during certain odysseys on earth. It is this, the inner life of the astronauts, that Tom Wolfe describes with his almost uncanny empathetic powers, that made The Right Stuff a classic.
