We Are Different Book Excerpt:

You and I are God’s “own special people.” If you are a Christian—a believer—you qualify! The Bible explains that the reason we are “a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people” is because we are supposed to be proclaiming publishing and declaring the praises, the excellencies, the wonderfulness and the attributes of the One who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. So when people see us Christians they need to see how excellent, virtuous, perfect and wonderful the God who called us IS. You and I are here on earth to make God look good!

God Doesn t Make Trash Book Excerpt:

In Publisher’s Weekly April 23, 2001 issue, the industry magazine spotlighted the LGBT book scene in 2001. In his article prefacing a list of nearly 200 selected Gay and Lesbian titles, Charles Hix stated: “Significantly, the number of books dealing primarily with AIDS is down compared to 2000...AIDS is now more likely to be treated as an incidental fact, not a focus.” Indeed, scanning the titles and descriptions of the books listed in the article, I counted only eight titles that spoke of AIDS specifically. There appears to be little interest anymore in the personal stories of those lost. Indeed, it takes the stature of an Edmund White to even interest a major publisher in another collection of cenotaphs. What then do we make of Barbara Rose Brooker’s brave little book recounting the stories of friends and acquaintances long dead from AIDS? The book’s title comes from a conversation Brooker had with former Marlboro Man and later AIDS model, Christian Haren. Brooker, a struggling novelist with two young daughters had been a reluctant but loving witness to her next door neighbor’s early agonizing victimization and discrimination preceeding his death from the virus and its complications. In an effort to fulfill a promise to her friend, Brooker sets about taping interviews with AIDS patients in a half-hearted attempt to document their stories. Christian Haren was her first interviewee. Galvanized by anger and illness, co-opted by the nascent AIDS response movement as a poster child, Haren is in a unique position to usher Brooker to the Castro and San Francisco General Hospital’s earliest AIDS ward in the rapidly blackening early days of the pandemic. Constantly, Haren pushes her to listen, to record, to write. Alternately cajoling and hectoring, the dying Haren manages to inspire the straight, Jewish, liberal Brooker to undertake a project which was to haunt her for the following fifteen years. The product of that haunting, some twenty-nine chapters profiling men and women, gay and straight in the grips of a time and a disease, is really as much a portrait of middle class America’s dawning awareness of and helpless witness to the pandemic as it is of the dying’s. The dying themselves are vibrantly recalled in Brooker’s tender, elegaic chronicalling, but it is the portrait of Brooker herself that is most compelling. Her journey from sympathetic bystander to paralyzed witness to stoic promise-keeper is a genuine document of a time and a place that seems, unfortunately, to have an expired shelf-life. That is the pity and the promise of this fine little book. Pity that it might easily go unread and ignored for now, but it promises to be a classic for the times to come. I have written before that history is most intimately experienced by small people in small places. We are lucky to have this small history now and waiting again in a huge unknown future. -by Jay Quinn Lambda Book Report July/August 2001

Making Room for God Book Excerpt:

If cleanliness is next to godliness, do our closets have anything to say about the state of our souls? Decluttering became trendy with the 2014 release of Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. And while there’s no shortage of secular books promoting the practice, Making Room for God is the first book on organization from a Catholic perspective. Self-proclaimed pack rat Mary Elizabeth Sperry will help you make decluttering a prayerful, peace-filled, and soul-expanding experience. Popular Catholic speaker and Bible expert Mary Elizabeth Sperry explores the relationship between our stuff and Catholic beliefs about grace, sin, repentance, prayer, and the common good. She boldly affirms the goodness of our stuff and of God’s abiding presence in the worldly goods all around us. She also reminds us of how sin can distort our relationships, including the ones we have with our possessions. Through spiritual disciplines—especially prayer, fasting, and almsgiving—we can protect this relationship so that we own our possessions but they don't own us. Making Room for God offers an enticing and entertaining approach to decluttering, discipleship, and the spiritual life that makes tidying up seem almost fun. Writing from an unabashedly Catholic perspective and with convincing practicality, Sperry looks at the role of material goods in the life of a follower of Jesus. Each chapter includes humorous and often self-deprecating details of the author’s own journey through decluttering to help us believe that we, too, can simplify. Alongside these adventures are Sperry's rich spiritual insights gleaned from extensive knowledge of the Church’s tradition and helpful exercises for freeing ourselves from clutter and the temptation to sin it so often harbors. Sperry draws liberally from the Bible, liturgy, Fathers of the Church, lives of the saints, and Church teaching—especially that of Pope Francis—as she explores the relationship between our stuff and our spiritual lives. Practical elements offer a step-by-step approach to decluttering living spaces, getting rid of unused and excess items, and limiting future accumulation.

The Tabernacle Temple and Sanctuary Genesis 1 to Exodus 27 Book Excerpt:

This book uses a verse by verse approach to understand the Tabernacle. When I prayed about starting this book, the answer was, “at the beginning.” After I began writing, that made sense. To understand the Tabernacle, we have to understand God's personality. That's when items in the Tabernacle began to come alive. What better way to understand the Tabernacle then to study the subject the way Moses recorded it? I can't think of a better way. I'm sure after reading this book, you'll agree. Can anyone improve on the sequence God gave Moses? The Tabernacle reflects Jesus' personality as well as His dedication, ambitions, and goals. The Tabernacle is like Jesus' application to this world to be their Messiah, Savior, God, King, High Priest, and Friend. This book shows how a series of stories in the Bible led to the Israelites leaving Egypt, covers the collection of materials for the Tabernacle, as well as instructions and directions God gave to Moses to build the Tabernacle.

Law Liberty A Biblical Look at Legalism Book Excerpt:

The authors in this compilation address the issue of legalism from a variety of angles. John MacArthur shows, first that obedience to God is not an issue of legalism, but an issue of love. In his second chapter, he deals with the inevitable response of people who are confronted with Biblical standards, "Judge not that ye be not judged." Here MacArthur shows what our Lord meant when He said that, and shows what biblical discernment really is, that there is a vast difference between judgmental and holding people accountable to God's standards. Phil Johnson, in his first chapter, deals with Christian liberty. In his second chapter, he takes a critical look at two kinds of legalism, then explores the relationship of Christian love and Christian liberty. Joel Beeke shows that enthusiasm for God's law is not necessarily legalism. One can be zealous without being legalistic. As David wrote: "Oh, how I love Thy Law!" Bruce Bickel explains that legalism is due to a weak understanding of what Christ accomplished on the cross. Jim Elliff makes clear that legalism is an attack on unity within the Body of Christ, particularly local congregations. Ken Talbot helps us to see that legalism is inconsistent with and incompatible with the doctrine of justification by faith alone. He points out that the doctrine of "free will" leads to this dangerous position. Rick Phillips explores the relationship to loving God and obeying His law. Some today believe that love is all that matters, and that the law as a guideline to love is extinct. Then this author shows that Biblical sanctification is the antidote to and the opposite of legalism. Steven J. Lawson shows that legalism is the result of holding to man-made traditions over the truth of God's Word. Second, he points out how dangerous and deadly a thing legalism is and why.

Decision Making and the Will of God Book Excerpt:

Does God Have a Perfect Will for Your Life? Does God have a perfect will for each Christian? Can you be absolutely certain of God’s specific will for your life? In this expanded twenty-fifth anniversary edition of his highly acclaimed work, Garry Friesen examines the prevalent view on God’s will today and provides a sound biblical alternative to the traditional teaching of how God guides us. This new edition includes these helpful resources: • Study guide for small groups • Responses to Frequently Asked Questions • Guide to painless Scripture memorization Friesen tackles the very practical issues of choosing a mate, picking a career, and giving in this fresh and liberating approach to decision making and the will of God. Story Behind the Book Most Christians have been taught how to find God’s will, yet many are still unsure whether they’ve found it. God does guide His people, but the question is, “How does He guide?” After “putting out a fleece” to decide which college to attend, Garry Friesen began pondering why it was so hard to find God’s will when he had so sincerely sought it. Was he the only one who did not have 100 percent clarity for every decision? Then a new possibility struck—perhaps his understanding of the nature of God’s will was biblically deficient. Maybe there was a better way to understand HOW God guides.
