Like Licking Honey Off a Thorn

$17.95
More Info
Some might venture to say that I have had a "love-hate" relationship with the church, but I would respectfully and heartedly disagree. It has been total love on my part. But love is not always about daffodils and pansies, flowing and fluttering in the warm spring breezes. When one risks loving, one not only opens oneself up to the possibilities of moments of wondrous ecstasy, but also to the very real possibilities of deep, cutting hurt. So anyway, in my love for, and in my life of service to the Church, I was often hurt and deeply wounded when I witnessed her (the Church) resembling a shivering recluse hiding in a politically correct dark corner, abandoning truth while embracing cultural norms. Indeed, the church so often seems to settle for so much less than she was commissioned to be, seemingly seeking to bask in the great illusion of safety. It makes me sad when I so often witness the church actively working towards being boring, languid, rigid and arrogant. But it does brighten my soul when I realize that the life of Christ sure as hell isn't any of those things! Read on!

Like Licking Honey Off a Thorn

$17.95
More Info
I was maybe 7 or 8, and in trouble again, - sent to my room for what could have been any number of transgressions. Anyway, at that time they were putting a new bay window in our dining room and, upon some clandestine exploration, I had discovered a small hole in the operation with just a flap of tarpaper covering it. I had discovered it earlier in the day, so as I sat imprisoned in my room, a light went off in my head! I can beat this! So wearing just sox to lend stealth to my covert operation, I snuck down the back stairs, down the back hall, and (in stealth crouch) into the dinning room. Then squeezing through the hole under the window, I was out! Into the fresh air of freedom! Then as I began to make my way around the side of the house, I was stopped dead in my tracks, - PETRIFIED! I was eye to eye with my Dad coming towards me, his hands gripped to the handles of a wheel barrel. Now, my Dad was a large muscular man (having been a construction foreman and truck driver before entering seminary), and, - he was wearing his maroon T-shirt, with his muscles rippling under the strain of the weight of the wheel barrel. In a nano second I was off, - up through the hole, down the hall, up the stairs, and into bed with the covers pulled over me faster than the Road Runner could ever hope to travel. Dad never said a thing about it, but he had to have set that wheel barrel down and had a wonderful laugh, - maybe even thinking of my attempted escape, "Well, the boy shows promise!" And so it is, that I'm still trying to "escape" from things like boredom, and from the many little prisons that we all tend to surround ourselves with, including those that we make for ourselves. These writings then, are an attempt do just that, to free myself to "breath the clear clean air" of peace, truth, and love, unafraid now (well, relatively unafraid) of whoever might be "coming around the next corner" to "greet" me. So hey, maybe my thoughts and ramblings can help us both "flee the tomb". Now, - that would be really cool!

Lo Unico que Importa

$6.99
More Info
En este libro, el aclamado autor de Conversaciones con Dios nos pide que nos hagamos la siguiente pregunta clave: De qué manera todo lo que hago me sirve para seguir la agenda de mi alma? Ella comparte cinco herramientas para vivir "lo que realmente importa" la gratitud, la resignación, la compasión, el perdón, y la meditación. Y detrás de todas ellas, la voluntad.

"El 98% de la humanidad pasa el 98% de su tiempo haciendo cosas que no importan," nos dice Neal Donald Walsch, ya que no han descubierto aún qué es lo verdaderamente importante, no han priorizado lo que es vital para sus vidas o no saben cómo vivir. Lo único que importa nos recuerda que estamos en un viaje sagrado desde que nacemos hasta que morimos, y que cada uno de nosotros tiene un propósito divino. Cada alma tiene un itinerario específico para servir a este propósito, pero la mayoría de nosotros lo ignoramos. Con este libro, Walsch nos enseña cómo convertirnos en la versión mejor y más grande que podamos imaginar de nosotros mismos.

Lost and Found (USED)

$3.99
More Info

Who are the young unchurched, and how can they be reached with the good news of Jesus Christ?

In a poll result highlighted by CNN Headline News and USA Today, nearly half of nonchurchgoers between the ages of twenty and twenty-nine agreed with the statement, "Christians get on my nerves." Now, researchers behind the larger study present Lost and Found, a blend of dynamic hard data and modern day parable that tells the real story of an unchurched generation that is actually quite spiritual and yet circumspect, open to Jesus but not the church.

As such, Lost and Found is written to the church, using often-surprising results from the copious research here to strike another nerve and break some long established assumptions about how to effectively engage the lost. Leading missiologist Ed Stetzer and his associates first offer a detailed investigation of the four younger unchurched types. With a better understanding of their unique experiences, they next clarify the importance each type places on community, depth of content, social responsibility, and making cross-generational connections in relation to spiritual matters.

Most valuably, Lost and Found finds the churches that have learned to reach unchurched young adults by paying close attention to those key markers vetted by the research. Their exciting stories will make it clear how your church can bring searching souls from this culture to authentic faith in Christ.

Those who are lost can indeed be found. Come take a closer look.

Love that Lasts

$9.99
More Info

In Love That Lasts, New York Times bestselling author of Jesus > Religion Jefferson Bethke and his wife, Alyssa, expose the distorted views of love that permeate our culture and damage our hearts, minds, and souls.

Drawing from Jeff's "prodigal son" personal history and from Alyssa's "True Love Waits" experience, the Bethkes point to a third and better way. Blending personal storytelling with biblical teaching, they offer readers an inspiring, realistic vision of love, dating, marriage, and sex.

Young people today enter adulthood with expectations of blissful dating followed by a romantic, fulfilling marriage only to discover they've been duped. They learned about love and sexuality from social media, their friends, Disney fairy tales, pornography, or even their own rocky past, and they have no idea what healthy, lifelong love is supposed to be like. The results are often disastrous, with this generation becoming one of the most relationally sick, sexually addicted, and divorce ridden in history.

Looking to God's design while drawing lessons from their own successes and failures, the Bethkes explode the fictions and falsehoods of our current moment. One by one, they peel back lies such as,

  • the belief that every person has only one soul mate,
  • that marriage will complete you,
  • and that pornography and hook-ups are harmless.

    Lovingkindness (USED)

    $3.99
    More Info
    Throughout our lives we long to love ourselves more deeply and find a greater sense of connection with others. Our fear of intimacy--both with others and with ourselves--creates feelings of pain and longing. But these feelings can also awaken in us the desire for freedom and the willingness to take up the spiritual path.

    In this inspiring book, Sharon Salzberg, one of America's leading spiritual teachers, shows us how the Buddhist path of lovingkindness can help us discover the radiant, joyful heart within each of us. This practice of lovingkindness is revolutionary because it has the power to radically change our lives, helping us cultivate true happiness in ourselves and genuine compassion for others. The Buddha described the nature of such a spiritual path as "the liberation of the heart, which is love." The author draws on simple Buddhist teachings, wisdom stories from various traditions, guided meditation practices, and her own experience from twenty-five years of practice and teaching to illustrate how each one of us can cultivate love, compassion, joy, and equanimity--the four "heavenly abodes" of traditional Buddhism.

    Martin Luther; Renegade and Prophet

    $12.99
    More Info
    From "one of the best of the new [Martin Luther] biographers" (The New Yorker), a portrait of the complicated founding father of the Protestant Reformation, whose intellectual assault on Catholicism transformed Christianity and changed the course of world history.

    "Magnificent."--The Wall Street Journal
    "Penetrating."--The New York Times Book Review
    "Smart, accessible, authoritative."--Hilary Mantel

    On October 31, 1517, so the story goes, a shy monk named Martin Luther nailed a piece of paper to the door of the Castle Church in the university town of Wittenberg. The ideas contained in these Ninety-five Theses, which boldly challenged the Catholic Church, spread like wildfire. Within two months, they were known all over Germany. So powerful were Martin Luther's broadsides against papal authority that they polarized a continent and tore apart the very foundation of Western Christendom. Luther's ideas inspired upheavals whose consequences we live with today.

    But who was the man behind the Ninety-five Theses? Lyndal Roper's magisterial new biography goes beyond Luther's theology to investigate the inner life of the religious reformer who has been called "the last medieval man and the first modern one." Here is a full-blooded portrait of a revolutionary thinker who was, at his core, deeply flawed and full of contradictions. Luther was a brilliant writer whose biblical translations had a lasting impact on the German language. Yet he was also a strident fundamentalist whose scathing rhetorical attacks threatened to alienate those he might persuade. He had a colorful, even impish personality, and when he left the monastery to get married ("to spite the Devil," he explained), he wooed and wed an ex-nun. But he had an ugly side too. When German peasants rose up against the nobility, Luther urged the aristocracy to slaughter them. He was a ferocious anti-Semite and a virulent misogynist, even as he argued for liberated human sexuality within marriage.

    A distinguished historian of early modern Europe, Lyndal Roper looks deep inside the heart of this singularly complex figure. The force of Luther's personality, she argues, had enormous historical effects--both good and ill. By bringing us closer than ever to the man himself, she opens up a new vision of the Reformation and the world it created and draws a fully three-dimensional portrait of its founder.

    $5.99
    More Info

    For almost 1,500 years, the New Testament manuscripts were copied by hand--and mistakes and intentional changes abound in the competing manuscript versions. Religious and biblical scholar Bart Ehrman makes the provocative case that many of our widely held beliefs concerning the divinity of Jesus, the Trinity, and the divine origins of the Bible itself are the results of both intentional and accidental alterations by scribes.

    In this compelling and fascinating book, Ehrman shows where and why changes were made in our earliest surviving manuscripts, explaining for the first time how the many variations of our cherished biblical stories came to be, and why only certain versions of the stories qualify for publication in the Bibles we read today. Ehrman frames his account with personal reflections on how his study of the Greek manuscripts made him abandon his once ultra-conservative views of the Bible.

    Moses: A Life (USED)

    $5.99
    More Info
    Lawgiver and liberator. Seer and prophet. The only human permitted to converse with God "face-to-face." Moses is the most commanding presence in the Old Testament. Yet as Jonathan Kirsch shows in this brilliant, stunningly original volume, Moses was also an enigmatic and mysterious figure--at once a good shepherd and a ruthless warrior, a spiritual leader and a magician, a lawgiver who broke his own laws, God's chosen friend and hounded victim. Now, in Moses: A Life, Kirsch accomplishes the wondrous feat of revealing the real Moses, a strikingly modern figure who steps out from behind the facade of Sunday school lessons and movie matinees.

    Drawing on the biblical text and a treasury of both scholarship and storytelling, Kirsch examines all that is known and all that has been imagined of Moses. In these vivid pages, we see the marvels and mysteries of Moses's life in a new light--his rescue in infancy and adoption by an Egyptian princess; his reluctant assumption of the role of liberator; his struggles to wrest his people from the pharaoh's dominion; his desperate vigil on Mount Sinai. Here too is the darker, more ominous Moses--the sorcerer, the husband of a pagan woman, the military commander who cold-bloodedly ordered the slaying of innocent people; the beloved of God whom God sought twice to murder.

    Jonathan Kirsch brings both prodigious knowledge and a keen imagination to one of the most compelling stories of the Bible, and the results are fascinating. A figure of mystery, passion, and contradiction, Moses emerges from this book very much a hero for our time.

    $8.99

    Known around the globe for her indefatigable work on behalf of the poor, the sick, and the dying, Mother Teresa has devoted her life to giving hope to the hopeless in more than one hundred and twenty countries. She inspires us all to find a way to translate our spiritual beliefs into action in the world. How has one woman accomplished so much? And what are the guiding principles that have enabled this humble nun to so profoundly effect the lives of millions?
    Now, in her own words, Mother Teresa shares the thoughts and experiences that have led her to do her extraordinary charitable work. A candid look at her everyday life--at the very simplicity and self-sacrifice that give her the strength to move mountains--A Simple Path gives voice to the remarkable spirit who has dedicated her life to the poorest among us.
    Just as important as her beliefs are how they are put into action in the world, and A Simple Path also tells the story of the founding of the Missionaries of Charity, their purpose and practice, and the results of their tireless work. Through faith, surrender, and prayer, the missionaries live to serve others; they have improved the lives of countless souls and given dignity to the dying. Their mission has also produced a ripple effect, spreading human compassion to communities where there is need.
    Through these examples, as well as the uplifting words and guiding prayers of Mother Teresa and those who work with her, everyone can learn how to walk the simple path that Mother Teresa has laid out for us, to help create a truly kinder world for the future.
    A Simple Path is a unique spiritual guide for Catholics and non-Catholics alike: full of wisdom and hope from the one person who has given us the greatest model of love in action in our time.
