Description : Living Biblically de-situates biblical wisdom from its formally religious-theological underpinnings and offers it as a guide for fulfilled, happy living. Although over 95 percent of Americans have some sense of a meaning-providing transcendent power, 75 percent of clinical psychologists and psychiatrists lack such belief. Without intelligent, applicable access to biblical wisdom, many unwittingly live out the tragic patterns emerging from classical Greece underlying much of modern life and psychotherapy. People are stuck, even trapped, without hope of redemptive change. They spin their wheels, cycling back and forth. Biblical narratives, in contrast, portray people as growing, developing, and overcoming problematic life situations. This book presents a systematic yet readable delineation of how biblical wisdom can apply to ten issues of daily life: 1) Relating to the Environment, 2) Relating to Another as Yourself, 3) Relating to Authority, 4) Relating to the Opposite Sex, 5) Relating to a Son, 6) Relating to a Daughter, 7) Relating to Siblings, 8) Relating Body to Soul, 9) Relating to a Self-Destructive Person, and 10) Relating to Misfortune. In each chapter, a specific psychological issue is discussed, applicable Greek and biblical narratives are compared, and contemporary illustrations are provided, enabling the reader to live in a more fulfilling and happy manner.
Description : Are you interested in understanding the wider culture and your place within Gods plan for His people? Women are often greatly encouraged to learn that their driving desire to be a wife and mother is part of Gods plan and not a symptom of latent patriarchalism or a sell-out of their emancipated sisters. This book surveys historical, sociological and scientific defense of womens roles. It investigates cultural clichs. And, most important, it explores the biblical perspective of Gods planned order and how women are to function within it.

Description : The Bible has long served as the standard for Christian practice, yet believers still disagree on how biblical passages should be interpreted and applied. Only when readers fully understand the constructs that inform their process of moving from Scripture to theology—and those of others—can Christians fully evaluate teachings that claim to be “biblical.” Here, scholars who affirm an inspired Bible, relevant and authoritative for every era, present models they consider most faithful to Scripture: - Walter C. Kaiser, Jr.: A Principlizing Model - Daniel M. Doriani: A Redemptive-Historical Model - Kevin J. Vanhoozer: A Drama-of-Redemption Model - William J. Webb: A Redemptive-Movement Model Each position also receives critiques from the proponents of the other views. Moreover, due to the far-reaching implications this topic holds for biblical studies, theology, and church teaching, this book includes three additional reflections by Christopher J. H. Wright, Mark L. Strauss, and Al Wolters on the theological and practical interpretation of biblical texts. Four Views on Moving beyond the Bible to Theology empowers readers to identify, evaluate, and refine their own approach to moving from the Bible to theology.

Description : Are you empty? Exhausted? Seeking life of fuller meaning and purpose? Did you know that in Christ you can be fully satisfied. This is the time.. today... to fully rest... and restore our body and soul. All we have to do is drink from the living water. Jesus said, "Come! Come! Whoever is thirsty, let him come, and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life." -Revelation 22:17. God's Secret Wisdom, the Art of Daily Living, Biblically is designed to transform the all encompassing 24 hours, 7 days a week of non-accountable hours into a plan purely guided by the biblical scriptures. These daily disciplines tied together with your unique personality, gifts and purpose will enable all mankind to truly live under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit was left for us along with these Biblical Scriptures to make known to us the ways of life until the Second Coming of Jesus (Acts Chapter 2). God will then take us to our eternal home with Him in heaven. In this heavenly realm, "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain." -Revelation 21:4. In this place, we shall celebrate eternal life with our Lord. The purpose of this project is "to pass God's secret wisdom of the art of daily living, biblically to the next generation." The whole of one's life is seen as a concern to Jesus, rather than just spiritual growth. Maintaining the art of daily living is not easy; therefore, we each need a plan of attack. Biblical living is to be seen in balance not perfection. Striving for Christ-likeness is our goal. The gifts of the fruit of the Holy Spirit can freely be ours: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:16-26). Paul states in the New Testament, "...I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." -Phillipians 4:11-13 NAS. An amazing book/workbook written for youth to adult! This book contains teaching pages as well as colorful graphs and workbook pages... very motivating! Simple; yet, profound in impact. Over 100 pages... an 8 1/2 x 11" layout. Written and collected by Jennifer Webster. Editor, Laurie Easton; Graphics/Art by Brenda Peterson, and Dana Hanson. See other books by Author: www.chatwithGod.org.

Description : Unmasking Biblical Faiths aims to address many of the challenges to traditional Christian faith in the modern world. Since the eighteenth-century Age of Enlightenment, human reason, formerly tethered by the constraints of organized religion, has been set free to explore the universe relatively unchallenged. The influence of the Bible, on the other hand, weakened due to the successes of modern historical criticism, is found to be inadequate for the task of enabling the faith "once for all delivered to the saints" (Jude 3), in that it cannot adequately respond to the many questions about religious faith that human reasoning raises for modern human beings. In a series of short but tightly reasoned essays, Charles Hedrick explores the confrontation between traditional Christian faith and aggressive human reason, a conflict that is facilitated by Western secular education.
