Description : The author believes that over the past forty years movements like New Age spirituality and society's obsession with human potential have combined like a "perfect storm" to redefine for popular culture what has been for centuries the classic biblical definition of the person, work, and teaching of Jesus Christ. In Why Jesus?, Ravi Zacharias looks at the impact of this "storm" by discussing the 60s-70s "Age of Aquarius," actor Shirley MacLaine's book and TV series Out On a Limb, author James Redfield (The Celestine Prophecy), Rhonda Byrne (The Secret), Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code), and other books by Eckart Tolle, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, the Dali Lama, and Marianne Williamson. Special attention will be given to the influence of Oprah Winfrey's media platform in reshaping society by introducing and promoting certain books and authors. Major new age and human potential tenets will be discussed like: the belief that we are all gods and have to discover our divinity; Jesus was only a good teacher; Christianity is but one among many ways to eternal life; reincarnation is real; Jesus was married; truth is relative; there is no sin; and perfection is possible. The truth of and the arguments for the bodily resurrection of Jesus will be presented as the most important argument for the exclusive claims about Jesus and Christianity.

Description : No figure in history has received more attention, and been less understood, than Jesus of Nazareth. Too much of what has been written recently portrays Jesus as a vaguely kind and friendly person whose message sometimes pleases but never challenges us, whose presence might comfort but never completes us. That Jesus, in other words, looks a lot like we do, just with better manners. Meeting that Jesus for the first time, the reader is tempted to ask ""Why all the fuss? What here is worth devoting my life to?""Very little about that Jesus is worth it, says Will Willimon. Yet there is another Jesus, the mysterious preacher from Nazareth who continues to invite men and women to claim the true meaning of their lives by giving their lives away in service to God and others. This Jesus continues to fascinate and compel us, in spite of all the attempts to domesticate his message and put distance between us and the call to follow. In his radical teachings, his self-sacrificial death, and his liberating life beyond death, this Jesus teaches and shows us the true meaning and purpose of our own lives.

Description : The Gospel reveals that what God wants most of all is not that this world and all the people in it should function as He created them to function. What God wants most of all is relationship. He wants each of us to call Him and know Him by name as He calls each of us by name. And Jesus was God's way of revealing this.

Description : Why Jesus? is a concise, easy-to-read study of the very real questions people may have about Jesus and why his birth, death and resurrection are central to the Christian faith. Over 8.5 million copies of this popular booklet have been sold across the world since it was first published. Written by Nicky Gumbel, the pioneer of Alpha and vicar of HTB in London, it explores why we need Jesus and how he satisfies our hunger for meaning and purpose in life, for life beyond death, and for forgiveness. Exploring Jesus' claims, character and death, Nicky uses effortlessly uncomplicated language to talk about the freedom we receive from guilt, addition, and fear, and the freedom to know God, to love other people, and to change. Why Jesus? is illustrated throughout by Charlie Mackesy, author of the best-selling book ‘The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse’. The booklet is designed to be given away at church services and events, to all guests at Alpha, and to anyone with questions about Jesus and the Christian faith. This expanded edition – which replaces the previous booklet that is no longer in print – includes a couple of excerpts from Nicky Gumbel’s Bible in One Year, an ideal companion to reading the Bible, around the theme of God’s love.

Description : For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. - Matthew 12:40 The premise of this book is that during these three days, Jesus was bombarded with images from Satan of future human events, trying to convince him that he should not return to the Earth versus images from God's angels showing him future human events to convince him to return. Here's a few examples of the over forty chapters of the book: "I Wear the Chain I Forged in Life;" "Alone with the Sky, Nature, and God;" "That Others May Live;" "The Evolution Scam;" "Broken Down Computers."

Description : How many times have you read a book by a seasoned diplomat in the United States Foreign Service examining the universal drawing power of Jesus? With the advantage of a solid theological education and the privilege of living among communities of people world-wide with vastly different perspectives, Phil Skotte here presents richly woven insights into his studied conviction that we are all hard wired for Jesus: that Jesus is not going away. This book is a gem. Read it! Samuel Hugh Moffett Emeritus Professor of Ecumenics and Mission Princeton Theological Seminary Princeton, New Jersey It has often been said that humans are hard-wired for belief in God and for religion. In Why Jesus Won't Go Away, Philip Skotte suggests that we are also hard-wired for Jesus Christ. Faith in Jesus is the most globally widespread movement in human history, and it is growing more rapidly than ever before, even in remote and unexpected places. Why Jesus takes us on a world tour to discover the surprising sources of Jesus' attraction and explores the powerful impact of his attraction on the human race. Written by a seasoned diplomat, Why Jesus Won't Go Away may change your calculations about humanity's religious future. It may also change your mind about Jesus.

Description : Jesus offers grace and mercy but he's also ratcheted up all the rules. Nice as it would be to frame Jesus as fun-loving, or a mercy-dispensing friend, the stories we have about him are a lot more disturbing than that. We hear about celebrations that began as a wake, and about people who didn't use their talents well being bounced clear out of the club. Jesus clearly thought that following the way of truth involved a lot more than simply avoiding things like murder, stealing, committing adultery or telling lies. When Jesus truly makes you nervous, he is worth living and dying for, and becomes the greatest source of meaning and purpose in life imaginable. "Holiness. Abundance. Forgiveness. Hope. In these musings about ‘ten stained-glass words of faith,' Joy Jordan-Lake strips away the clichés and church-bulletin nostrums and exposes the honest, challenging, comforting, and yes, sometimes alarming claims that are at the center of Jesus' life and teaching. This book is downright restorative." --Lauren F. Winner, author of Girl Meets God and Mudhouse Sabbath

Description : In this time of global unrest and wars, the future appears increasing uncertain - with people projecting their fears onto others under the pretext of defending their religion or their religious way of life. Some even make hate speeches against the beliefs others hold dear. Developing nations are suffering (poverty, corruption, human right abuses, wars/conflicts among others). However, within their grasp, there is a way out if they can collectively will it. With so many happenings that are difficult to understand or explain, I hope this book will be a starting point for all positive minded people i.e. those who have tried, and those still trying to create a more peaceful world people who are just and unbiased in their desire for true freedom and equality for all humanity.

Description : Seeing is believing… Do you question whether Jesus truly appears to people today? Do you long to see Him for yourself? Why Jesus Appears to People is an intimate, modern-day account of the author’s personal experiences seeing Jesus. It is also an introduction into a lifestyle that positions you for the same encounters. But Jesus came and touched them and said, “Arise, and do not be afraid.” When they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only (Matthew 17:7-8). Being saturated in the Word of God is a gateway into supernatural visitations with Jesus, both in Heaven and on earth—in dreams and in visions. To see Jesus is to be transformed. Why Jesus Appears to People positions you for living a supernaturally transformed life. Also discussed are the traps of satan to fool people—but there are ways you can discern his tactics. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last” (Revelation 1:17). You will be strongly inspired and encouraged knowing that Jesus has not changed. He greatly desires to appear to people today—to enhance and bring love and peace into their lives, your life.

Description : Popular manuals of theology and scholarly theological tracts have long disseminated the message that the Scotistic perspective relative to the primacy and predestination of Christ and Mary is endorsed only by Franciscans "and a few others," whereas, in actuality, the Thomistic perspective is the only one based on Revelation and adopted by the vast majority of theologians. As a result of many years of investigation at home and abroad, Father Carol is now in possession of what may be regarded as the most complete collection of texts bearing on the subject, both pro and con, from ancient times to the present day. This book makes this massive documentation available for the first time. Originally published in 1987 by Trinity Communications.

Description : Was Jesus just a spiritual leader, like Buddha, Krishna, Confucius, and Muhammad? Or is he something more--something else entirely? In God among Sages, apologist Ken Samples offers readers a biblical and historical portrait of Jesus, grounded in the claims Jesus makes about himself. Then Samples compares and contrasts Jesus with Buddha, Krishna, Confucius, and Muhammad using eight relevant categories of evaluation. He also helps readers understand the competing philosophies of religious pluralism, inclusivism, and exclusivism. The result is a clearer understanding of what sets Jesus apart as not simply a teacher to follow but God himself, worthy of our full allegiance and worship. Christians who struggle to answer claims that Jesus was just a good teacher, as well as those haven't quite made up their minds about Jesus's claims to divinity, will value this accessible introduction to comparative religions.

Description : Jesus Ain't Gonna Do Nothin', because He already did everything for us. Then He declared, "IT IS FINISHED." This book is a personalized message to you from God. You are not reading this by chance. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords gave us His power. He forgave us all once and for all, of all of our sins: past, present, and future by being brutally beaten and executed on the cross to ransom us from the cost of our sins. He freely paid for our salvation and gave us ALL things that pertain to life and Godliness. He destroyed illness by dying from every disease known and unknown to man at one time on the cross. He gave us dominion and power over all of the power and forces of the evil one so that now nothing shall harm us in any way. He gave us the ability to gain wealth, and He gave us a life of divine prosperity Our beloved King suffered the indignity of leaving His throne in heaven to walk the earth as a human, being tempted at all points as are we, yet not sinning. He was tortured to death by vicious brutal Roman soldiers, skilled in the art of pain infliction. He suffered the worst, most painful death anyone ever had or ever will. Why? BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU THAT MUCH!
