Description : Two trends in the early twenty-first-century intersect to give this volume immediate relevance: 1) The emerging postmodern ethos in North America is calling into question many things we have taken for granted, including the purposes of the church; and 2) our time is increasingly fractious as groups with distinct worldviews become polarized and often antagonistic. Eleven noted contributors join a growing current that sees conversation as an image to refresh our thinking about the nature and purpose of the church, and as a process in which individuals and communities with different perspectives come together for real understanding. Under the Oak Tree employs the image of Sarah and Abraham greeting three visitors under the Oaks of Mamre as an image for the church as a community of conversation, a community that opens itself to the otherness of the Bible, voices in history and tradition, others in the contemporary social and ecological worlds. Furthermore, the book shows how conversation can lead the church to action. The book takes a practical approach by exploring how conversation can shape key parts of the church's life. Topics include preaching, worship, formation, evangelism, pastoral care, mission and ecumenism, social witness, and the relationship of Christianity to other religions. Foundational chapters consider God as conversational, the church as community of conversation, and the minister as conversation leader.

Description : Hurricane Charlie strikes without warning, devastating Orlando and the treetop realm of Dreylanda secret society of urban birds and animals. The desperate wildlife migrates to other neighborhood groves defended by hostile residents. Worst of all, the Winter Slayer, a specter with power over death, reigns supreme in the carnage and destruction. In this chaotic post-hurricane setting, we see the power of the Creator, and of family and friendship eclipsing death as two wayward squirrels, Notch and Fuzzy, encounter Reek-Lee, Spook and other dangerous predators while searching for Heaven on Earththe legendary Nirvana tree. The story is told by Q, a wise old mother tree, and revolves around the three animals ruling in a Troika: Sage, a raccoon prophetess; Notch, the governor; and the regulator, a cat aptly called Dagger. They enjoy very long lives, in fact near immortality. But, after many seasons, a grudge between Dagger and Notch boils over into mortal combat, breaking the Troika, and releasing the Winter Slayer to claim what its long been denied. More than a modern-day animal story, in Diary of an Oak Tree we time-travel from Dreyland, back to the magical Age of Oaks, where rebellious men fought nature itself in the Battle of the Valley of Nigh, changing the Earth forever.

Trees have the ability to help us reach wholeness if we learn their wisdom and integrate it into our lives.

Description : An amazing book! I could hardly lay it down. It moves from marvel to marvel. The book of Acts is happening today much like it happened 2,000 years ago. The book reveals a world of miracles and the powerful working of the Holy Spirit. Its radical departure from the modern enlightenment world view where no miracles happen is refreshing!' David W. Shenk, consultant, Christian/Muslim Relations This book is powerful because it presents the faith and life of a human being who gave his life completely to Jesus and lives like that a marvelous story and a precious addition to the stories of men and women of faith whose lives tug at our deepest feelings, pulling us ever onward in our own walk with the Lord. Donald R. Jacobs, Missiologist Once or twice in a generation, a man or woman appears with such childlike faith, profound union with God that through their testimony we fall on our faces crying, The Lord, he is God! not many of us have walked that path of obedient, living faith so simply, deeply, and persistently as Gerbole Richard Showalter in the Foreword

Description : The life of Theodore Francis Powys, the man and the writer (1875–1953), is a story of determined withdrawal from the contemporary world. While his two literary brothers John Cowper and Llewellyn travelled a great deal abroad, Theodore, after early unsuccessful attempts to join the active world, settled into a sedentary life in a remote rural part of Dorset. In his retreat, protected from the outside world by his omnipresent hills, Powys constructed a world, half-real and half-imaginary, in which the man and the writer, reality and fancy and past and present coexisted and sometimes merged. For Powys, fear in its various manifestations, as fear of God, of evil, of death and of self, was a powerful incentive to write and a source of inspiration for almost everything remarkable in his writings. It did not take Powys long to realize that allegory was a literary genre better suited to his literary leanings and peculiar turn of mind than the realism of his early novel-writing ventures. Under the combined influence of the Bible, Bunyan and Hawthorne, he adapted allegory to his specific literary purpose. In that regard, two distinctive aspects of his allegorical stories, namely supernatural visitors and animal symbolism, generally overlooked by his critics, deserve close attention, and are the special focus of this book. Few writers have been so strongly and avowedly marked by so many literary and philosophical influences as Powys. These range from the Bible, Bunyan and Hawthorne to Darwin, Hardy, Lawrence and Freud. However, Powys’s short stories, fables and novels also stand as a unique and original achievement. Indeed, the influence he himself exerted on some novelists of the younger generation, such as William Golding, testifies to the power and originality of his writings.

Description : A BIBLE STUDY RESOURSE Dr. Stewart takes a bold new approach to Bible Study in his new book BIBLICAL THEMES. While most studies engage in the reinforcing of Christian dogma, Biblical Themes will give the reader a deeper understanding of Gods plan for the nation of Israel. You will learn just what Jesus meant and how the Pharisees understood the statement if these [the crowd] should hold their peace these stones would immediately cry out (Luke 19:40). This was not an off hand, meaningless statement. It was a declaration. In the Old Testament God set stones apart as a witness heap. You will learn the real reason why Abraham was willing to sacrifice Isaac and why God commanded him not to kill his son thereby abolishing human sacrifice. Dr. Stewart has chosen a wide variety of topics, people and places for you to explore thereby enriching your Biblical knowledge. In order to make for a lively Bible Study, a series of questions follow each topic. This is not a resource for the faint of heart as it deals with subject matter clergy prefer to ignore. Dr. Stewarts eye for detail sheds light on Gods never-ending love for creation and overwhelming desire to one day reign over a kingdom built on love. As in his first book, The Bible According to Jim, all exegetical work is done in Hebrew and Greek and not a series of English translations. If you want to enjoy a work that will truly engage you then this is the resource for you. You will also be engaged by the questions that follow each topic. Dr. Stewart guarantees they will make for a lively Bible Study.

Description : This profusely illustrated archive of more than 200 flowers, plants and trees was compiled by two of the world's foremost collectors of pictorial symbols — who also happen to be devoted flower enthusiasts. Their comprehensive collection, rendered from rare illustrations, extends from ancient Chinese lotus buds to a basket of flowers in a 19th-century Valentine silhouette. Bouquets, wreaths, flowers of the months, and other floral designs are also included. In addition to providing a table summarizing the symbolic meanings of every known species — from absinth to zinnia — the authors explain the religious, magical and legendary significance of such flora as the mandrake, resurrection flower and mistletoe, and trace the development of many horticultural images in heraldic devices, emblems, and symbols. A visual treat for flower lovers, this essential sourcebook for artists, designers, and folklore enthusiasts will also be of value to botanical and gardening specialists.
