Description : Rediscovering the Original "Way" of Jesus the Christ Leading Bible scholar Marcus Borg takes us on an incredible journey to discover who Jesus was, what he taught, and why he still matters today. In the definitive book of his career, Borg argues that how we see Jesus affects how we see Christianity and reveals a new way of seeing—a new perspective that can overcome the differences between the literalists and progressives, a path that emphasizes following "the way" of Jesus, the original name of the Jesus movement.

Description : A New York Times Bestseller! "Who do you say that I am?" Uttered by Jesus Christ, this profound question has presented an age-old challenge to believers, skeptics, scholars, and rulers. In attempting to answer this question, The True Jesus goes straight to the unimpeachable source: the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Only in the Gospels, says #1 New York Times bestselling author David Limbaugh, do we come face-to-face with the Son of God, Whose sublime teachings, miraculous actions, and divine essence leap off every page and into our hearts. In this book, Limbaugh combines the four Gospel stories into a unified account (though not, he humbly admits, a perfect harmony) and guides readers on a faith journey through the Four Evangelists' testimonies of the life of Jesus Christ. Along the way, Limbaugh shares his insights on Jesus' words and deeds as well as His unique nature as fully human and fully divine. In The True Jesus, you will learn: - Why even the apostles failed to completely understand Jesus' true identity and mission until after His crucifixion - The real basis for the rejection of Jesus' message by skeptics in His hometown and elsewhere - The historical events preceding Jesus' birth that providentially paved the way for Christianity - How Jesus' message utterly contradicted modern attempts to portray Him as being non-judgmental Limbaugh's passion for the Gospels infuses the pages of The True Jesus, which is both a primer for new Bible readers and an outstanding guide to the Gospels for long-time believers. Who really is the true Jesus? Open this book and begin your odyssey toward the answer.

Description : When Brian McLaren began offering an alternative vision of Christian faith and life in books such as A New Kind of Christian and A Generous Orthodoxy, he ignited a firestorm of praise and condemnation that continues to spread across the religious landscape. To some religious conservatives, McLaren is a dangerous rebel without a doctrinally-correct cause. Some fundamentalist websites have even claimed he's in league with the devil and have consigned him to flames. To others though, Brian is a fresh voice, a welcome antidote to the staleness, superficiality, and negativity of the religious status quo. A wide array of people from Evangelical, Catholic, and Mainline Protestant backgrounds claim that through his books they have begun to rediscover the faith they'd lost or rejected. And around the world, many readers say that he has helped them find-for the first time in their lives-a faith that makes sense and rings true. For many, he articulates the promise of what is being called "emerging Christianity." In The Secret Message of Jesus you'll find what's at the center of Brian's critique of conventional Christianity, and what's at the heart of his expanding vision. In the process, you'll meet a Jesus who may be altogether new to you, a Jesus who is... Not the crusading conqueror of religious broadcasting; Not the religious mascot of partisan religion; Not heaven's ticket-checker, whose words have been commandeered by the church to include and exclude, judge and stigmatize, pacify and domesticate. McLaren invites you to discover afresh the transforming message of Jesus-an open invitation to radical change, an enlightening revelation that exposes sham and ignites hope, an epic story that is good news for everyone, whatever their gender, race, class, politics, or religion. "Pastor and best-selling author McLaren revisits the gospel material from a fresh-and at times radical-perspective . . . He does an excellent job of capturing Jesus' quiet, revolutionary style." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Here McLaren shares his own ferocious journey in pondering the teachings and actions of Jesus. It is McLaren's lack of salesmanship or agenda that creates a refreshing picture of the man from Galilee who changed history." --Donald Miller, Author of Blue Like Jazz "In this critical book, Brian challenges us to ask what it would mean to truly live the message of Jesus today, and thus to risk turning everything upside down." --Jim Wallis, Author of God's Politics and editor of Sojourners "Compelling, crucial and liberating: a book for those who seek to experience the blessed heat of Christianity at its source." --Anne Rice, Author of Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt

Description : In this book, Julius-Kei Kato lets the theories and experiences of Asian American hybridity converse with and bear upon some aspects of Christian biblical and theological language. Hybridity has become a key feature of today’s globalized world and is, of course, a key concept in postcolonial thought. However, despite its crucial importance, hybridity is rarely used as a paradigm through which to analyze and evaluate the influential concepts and teachings that make up religious language. This book fills a lacuna by discussing what the concept of hybridity challenges and resists, what over-simplifications it has the power to complicate, and what forgotten or overlooked strands in religious tradition it endeavors to recover and reemphasize. Shifting seamlessly between biblical, theological, and modern, real-world case studies, Kato shows how hybridity permeates and can illuminate religious phenomena as lived and believed. The ultimate goal of the move toward an embrace of hybridity is a further dissolution of the thick wall separating ideas of "us" and "them." In this book, Kato suggests the possibility of a world in which what one typically considers the "other" is increasingly recognized within oneself.

Description : For more than five hundred years, the Bible has been referred to as the Word of God. Yet, even before the Bible was written, there was a Living Word-spoken through prophets and through Jesus of Nazareth - that ultimately echoes through the centuries. Pastor Toivonen relies on his nearly thirty years of preaching as well as studying and interpreting the Bible to inspire others to contemplate how God speaks in the contemporary world and whether God prefers flesh and blood to ink and paper. While sharing his careful examination of how the Bible came to be the Word of God through a very human process and why the Word of God is intended to be living and breathing as opposed to a book, Toivonen offers intriguing insights and commentary that encourages spiritual seekers to embark on a personal journey to answer their own questions about the Bible, its authority, and its trustworthiness. "Reading Jesus" offers encouragement to anyone ready to consider a deeper and more meaningful relationship with Jesus of Nazareth and apply the Word of God to truly live God's way-today.

Description : Not a Jew marginally, but centrally In this book, LaCocque presents the case that Jesus was totally and unquestionably a Jew. He lived as a Jew, thought as a Jew, debated as a Jew, acted as a Jew and died as a Jew. He had no intention of creating a new religion; rather, he was a reformer of the Judaism of his day. True, his critique went far beyond an intellectual subversion. In fact, Jesus progressively thought of himself as the “Son of Man” inaugurating the advent of the Kingdom of God on earth. Features: Focused attention given to the historical Jesus and not Christianity or Christology Addresses restricted sources, namely, the Synoptic Gospels Close examination of Jesus’s way of thinking, teaching, and behaving

Description : There are many ways to be a Christian. In Good News for Moderns author Nero James Pruitt shows that within the pages of the New Testament there is room for a diversity of Christianities. This is a diversity that is not talked about often but, when properly understood, expands the perception of what a Christian is. Consider the words of Justin Martyr the second century Christian writer recognized as a saint by the Catholic Church, the Anglicans and the Eastern Orthodox in about 150 AD: We are taught that Christ is the first born of God, and we have shown that He is the reason (word) of whom the whole human race partake. And those who live according to reason are Christians, even though they are counted atheists. Such were Socrates and Heraclitus among the Greeks, and those like them.... Consider the words of John Adams the second President of the United States in 1816: The Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount contain my religion. Consider the words Bill Clinton the forty-second President of the United States: In 1955, I had absorbed enough of my churchs teachings to know that I was a sinner and to want Jesus to save me Finally, consider the words of the writer of the small New Testament Book of III John: Whoever does good is from God... Good News for Moderns is based on Pruitts reading of the scriptures and over one hundred authors of various points of view. In our busy time it is brief slightly more than one hundred thousand words supplemented by slightly less than one hundred thousand words of end-notes. It recognizes that human life moves by fast in what seems like an infinity of time and space and the book closes this way: By listing many who have come before us and the immensity of time and space I have underscored the brevity of our lives because as a Psalmist taught, recognizing our own mortality is the path to wisdom.

Description : ★★★ Discover the true miracle of Lazarus being raised from the dead ★★★ Lazarus is an amazing story. A man rose from the dead! You just don’t get any more awesome than that, right! So that’s it then. That’s what we are supposed to learn from his resurrection, right? Not exactly. Jesus performed lots of miracles. John said it best when he said that there would not be room in the whole world to describe all that he did. It’s easy to look at the stories of miracles and see them for what they’re worth: miracles. But that’s a shame. If the miracle is in the Bible, there’s a reason for it. It’s not just there because it was miraculous. With Lazarus, a man rose from the dead—an amazing miracle, no doubt. But there’s more to it than that. There’s a lesson to be learned. Lazarus wasn’t just a man who raised from the dead—he had a life before and after his resurrection. And Jesus didn’t perform the miracle just to be flashy.

Description : Many erroneous concepts and practices inhabit this old world; and even the church world. This book exposes a lot of them. And of course, if it is erroneous, then the devil is behind it; for he is a liar and the father of lies and liars. Which makes this book a very timely work. God is the same as He has always been; so is the devil; so is lost mankind; so is religion! The outward appearances may be different in these modern times, but underneath, the devil, lost man, and even religion are basically the same as they have been in every generation. The main truth this book emphasizes is that Satan is a diabolical character, but a shrewd one; requiring that he hide behind people, institutions, ideas and concepts that come across as genuine and on the up and up. Why would Satan have to hide his actions and purposes if they were the right kind of actions and purposes? The reader may be surprised, and perhaps even shocked, at some of the places the devil hides behind. Read and find out.

Description : The truth remains: men, women, and children are plunging deeper into the entanglement of a deplorable condition. The crisis of identity plagues our world like never before. When a person's basic sense of being is altered, he or she tends to gravitate in the direction that seems to offer a deeper sense of self-worth. You are a unique individual, possessing unique gifts, talents, and abilities. You cannot be duplicated! That is why attempting to be someone else only leaves you feeling inadequate. Your identity is what makes 'you' you, and not someone else. Ignorance is no bliss! What you do not know can hinder you. In the same token, if you do not know who you are, you will stumble in your attempt to fulfill your God-given purpose. In this book, we deal with the importance of manifesting our destiny through grabbing a hold of biblical insights as to who we are in Christ. Why? The reason is 'Mankind has an identity ordained in Christ. This identity once embraced in its totality determines the course of destiny experienced.' It is time to live on purpose! There are countless millions waiting for you to show up and deliver what God has invested in you. The principles discussed in this book have been demonstrated in our lives for years. This is a book from the heart. We believe that as you embrace the principles therein, illumination will come to you relative to your specific condition. With the help of the Spirit of God, you will know what adjustments to make to stand your ground as an ambassador in the Kingdom of God. It is our prayer that you will understand clearly that your identity is suspended between your origin and your destiny. What you identify as your origin affects your perception of self. Why? 'You are a byproduct of the one who made you.' The originator of a thing determines its intrinsic worth. The origin also spells out the outcome of the product. We trust that as you read this book you will grasp that your Creator, God, did a good job in making you. — Kayode and Olumide Taiwo

Description : Jesus is the center of Christian faith and the Bible is its holy book, its sacred scriptures. For hundreds of years, this meant that Jesus was divine and the Bible was a divine product. This remains the primary perspective for many Christians today. However, it has mutated appreciably for others. It is not that Jesus is no longer thought of as the center of Christian faith or the Bible as Christianity's sacred scriptures. Those remain true for everyone. However, studies in biblical criticism and the historical Jesus suggest Jesus was a Palestinian Jew a human being -- not different in that respect from you and me. Divinity was bestowed upon him by his followers, and eventually took the form of imperial divinity after the example of Caesar. This presents a conundrum for Christianity. What, for instance, is Christianity to do with a human being at its center? How has Christianity accommodated imperial rule? What do we do with those imperial titles by which he is known Lord, Savior, Redeemer, and Son of God? Taking Caesar out of Jesus presents a new portrait of Jesus based on solid historical evidence assembled from the works of hundreds of critical biblical scholars. As the subtitle proclaims, Jesus emerges from this book as a new figure, relevant to the 21st century. Some will say this new perspective destroys Christianity. Others will find Jesus to be far more believable and compelling. Anyone will find this progressive approach to uncovering the historical Jesus thought-provoking. This book, however, goes beyond biblical criticism and a new portrait of the historical Jesus. It confronts the Christian proclamation that Jesus is humanity's savior including the notion that it needs a savior. It suggests that the historical Jesus never embraced the well-known notion of divine salvation. To the contrary, Jesus embraced Judaism's wisdom tradition. In the wisdom tradition, a person deals with the exigencies of life by developing a new vision of reality, and by acting differently. Jesus did not provide an instruction manual for living; rather, he pointed us in the direction of self-management. As described in this book, this new way of living, taken from Jesus's parables and aphorisms, will startle some, and stir others toward greater maturity and responsibility for their own lives.

Description : "Past study of Rom 1:16-3:26 focuses on individual salvation or on social relations and also produces a host of interpretative quandaries. Marcus A. Mininger develops a new approach, which includes but goes beyond these foci, by unearthing the theme of revelation that runs throughout Paul's argument largely unnoticed. More than a proof of sin or of social equality, Paul provides a survey of numerous visible revelations, in which otherwise invisible realities like God's wrath, the power of sin, and God's righteousness are seen through the observable effects they produce in different people. Read this way, the rationale of Paul's argument becomes quite clear, including for "problem texts" like Rom 2 and 3:1-8, as Paul proves that the gospel, not the law, overcomes sin's power and that God's righteousness always exists in contrast to the human condition in this age." -- ‡c From publisher's description.

Description : WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT WOMEN IN MINISTRY? Some Christians believe that women can become the priests of God; others believe it is an abomination unto God. Some believe God commanded that a woman cover her head while praying; others believe that it is only Paul's commandment that women cover their heads while praying, and that Paul's commandments are arbitrary and are not binding on women. Some believe God created men and women equal; others believe that God created women as subordinates to men by creating man first and then woman out of man. Some say Christ liberated women to be equal with men, others say He did not. Some say the biological conditions such as pregnancy, menstruation, nursing, and lactation defile the altar and make the church little more than a maternity home. Are women restricted to specific womanly duties only? So, who is correct? "Women Pastors and Uncovering" addresses these controversial subjects with much documentation from Scripture. You can know the truth and the truth will make you free.
