Purpose of Christmas (USED)

$6.99
More Info
Hailed by The Economist as the "the most influential pastor in America," and by Time as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, the bestselling author of The Purpose Driven Life expounds on the profound origins of Christmas, describing it as an opportune time to welcome peace into our lives.

In his powerful yet compassionate voice, Pastor Rick Warren sounds the clarion call to "remember the reason for the season," taking readers back in time to the most wonderful story of all--the birth of the baby Jesus. When he was just a small boy, young Rick asked his parents if they could celebrate Christmas with a birthday party for Jesus--and the tradition began that the Warrens have upheld for over fifty years. Now through stirring imagery and compelling personal insights, The Purpose of Christmas honors the significance and promise of this cherished holiday. Pastor Warren encourages readers to identify and confront what drains peace from their lives. Warren explains that the way to respond to these peace robbers is to learn how to surrender to God's will and not feel defeated or discouraged when life does not go as planned. True peace of mind is found by having an unshakeable faith in God--knowing that His empowering Spirit will guide His children through life's challenges.

Beautifully written, The Purpose of Christmas will stir readers to honor the true significance of Christmas and to nurture God's gifts of love and peace in this world.

This vigorous debate between two distinguished philosophers presents two views on a topic of worldwide importance: the role of religion in politics.

Each philosopher first states his position in detail, then responds to and criticizes the opposing viewpoint. Written with engaging clarity, Religion in the Public Square will spur discussion among scholars, students, and citizens.

Religions for Peace (USED)

$4.99
More Info
In this heartfelt, cogently argued manifesto, Francis Cardinal Arinze addresses one of the most important issues of our time-the compelling need to foster understanding and respect among followers of different religious beliefs.
The shocking attack on New York City and Washington, D.C., forced the leaders of every faith to face hard-hitting questions about the role of religion in a world increasingly torn apart by unrest, violence, and war. All religions of the world extol peace, yet in many instances religious beliefs are seen as the very source of humanity's conflicts. In "Religions for Peace," Cardinal Arinze explores what the various religions can do to actually promote peace.
As the head of the Pontifical Council for Inter-Religious Dialogue, Cardinal Arinze has met with religious leaders from around the world. Drawing on his vast experience and his deep-seated faith, he offers insights and ideas that could prove to be the catalyst for a new era of inter-religious cooperation the world so desperately needs. He writes on issues ranging from safeguarding the world's children, to protecting the environment, to promoting efforts for disarmament. At its core, his message emphasizes that the fundamental requirement for peace is respect for the human right to religious freedom.
Written by one of the important religious leaders in the world today, "Religions for Peace" provides thoughtful, real-life answers to questions that once seemed highly abstract. Resounding with a refreshing awareness of people of all backgrounds, it is a book that is needed more than ever today.

Remember Jesus Christ (USED)

$5.99
More Info
What place does Christ have in our modern society? Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, the preacher to the papal household, posed that question in a series of Advent and Lent meditations presented to Pope Benedict XVI. In Remember Jesus Christ, which is based on these meditations, he explains that in order to bring people to Christ today, the Church needs to proclaim, as simply and succintly as the apostles did, that "Jesus Christ is Lord!" And the essential core of that proclamation is the passion and death of Jesus, because the cross of Christ is the supreme proof of God's love for us. Scripture, personal testimonies, and allusions to works of art reinforce Cantalamessa's powerful and prophetic message, leaving readers with hope and expectant faith in the future of Christianity in the modern world. About the author: Fr. Ranierio Cantalamessa was born in Italy in 1934 and was ordained a Capuchin Franciscan priest in 1958. He taught at the Catholic University of Milan until 1979. In 1980 he was appointed as preacher to the papal household by Pope John Paul II. He still serves in that capacity, preaching a weekly sermon during both Lent and Advent in the presence of Pope Benedict XVI. He is a frequent and popular speaker at international conferences and ecumenical conferences and rallies.

Revelation

$16.00
More Info
On a Grecian island nearly 2,000 years ago, the God of all creation left mankind His final will and testament. That is, His will for mankind and a personal testimony of His only Son. We know His testimony as the Book of Revelation or the Revelation of Jesus Christ. By whatever name we recognize it, the Book of Revelation has become synonymous with an apocalyptic ending of the earth, often referred to as Armageddon. The tale of woe begins with four horsemen representing prophetic harbingers of God's wrath upon mankind for its wickedness and disobedience. Out of this narrative comes one chapter of doom and gloom after another. But is it?On one chilly November morning back in 2017, nearly 2,000 years after it was given, the Lord of Hosts opened the Book of Revelation to me, a 58 year old man with no formal theological education. Just an obedient and faithful son with a heart after God. No different than you perhaps. This isn't about me however. This is about the truth which has been hidden in plain sight for two millennia. This is about the life of Jesus Christ and what He did in heaven and on earth 2,000 years ago, and what will be done in heaven and on earth when He returns. "Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven" (Matt 6:10). The four horsemen have nothing to do with apocalypse. There are no two witnesses appearing on earth prior to His return. There is no tribulation, no rapture, and no mark of the beast in the hand or forehead. And it doesn't end there. We've been deceived. Take a walk with the truth and me. You won't regret it.THIS IS THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST!

Silence and Noise (USED)

$5.99
More Info
A fresh new voice in American Buddhism -- a twenty-nine-year-old raised among Buddhists in California -- offers wisdom for both longtime practitioners and a new generation of students in this fascinating memoir of his Zen upbringing.
Over half a century ago, when the first Zen Masters came to America, eager young students in search of enlightenment flocked to hear their teachings. Many, like Ivan Richmond's parents, became Buddhist teachers themselves while raising their children at monasteries and retreat centers. Growing up in the seventies in the deliberate silence of a Buddhist community, young Ivan knew only the hippies and redwoods of Northern California. When his family left in 1983, he became an immigrant in his own country, suddenly entering a mainstream society that was full of paradox and pop culture, uncertainty and noise. This is the story of his struggle to find peace amidst the chaos.
Whether dispensing kernels of Buddhist insight taught to him as a child or reflecting on the merits of rock concerts, Richmond narrates his emergence from seclusion with a sensitivity that is often touching, frequently funny, and always honest. The story of the powerfully resonant journey of this foot soldier in the front lines of American Buddhism is an essential read for anyone interested in the current state of Zen in America.

"I became a writer, I now believe, to sort out and reclaim words used and misused by the Christians of my youth," says Philip Yancey, whose explorations of Christian faith have made him a guide for millions of readers. In "Soul Survivor, "he charts his spiritual pilgrimage through the influence of key individuals: "These are the people who ushered me into the Kingdom. In many ways, they are why I remain a Christian today, and I want to introduce them to other spiritual seekers."

Spirit of Happiness (USED)

$6.99
More Info
In the course of our lives, we struggle to establish careers and relationships that we hope will infuse us with a sense of purpose. While important titles, wealth, power, and possessions may represent a life that is successful in the eyes of others, pursuit of these achievements prompts us to seek more of the same again and again. However, it is only through a fundamental understanding of faith in God that we can discover His purpose for each of us in life, and can in turn pursue a meaningful existence and achieve lasting happiness.

In his authentic and profound book "The Spirit of Happiness, " Dr. T. Byram Karasu explores the psychological barriers that prevent so many of us from allowing faith to become an integral part of our lives and from becoming truly serene and fulfilled human beings.

We all experience many difficulties and conflicts in our daily lives, meeting challenges at work and in relationships, suffering through illness, losses, and failures, feeling anxious, depressed, or simply empty and purposeless. If we view such ordeals through the wisdom of the Holy Bible, which Dr. Karasu presents to us here as the ultimate self-help book, we can learn to understand and identify with God's Holy Purpose. Psycho-spiritual exercises, including meditations and affirmations based on God's word, are placed at the end of each chapter to help focus the reader's spiritual intention and lead the way to a more joyful and rewarding existence.

Beautifully written and deeply moving, "The Spirit of Happiness" begins where most self-help books end.
