When a person tells you they’re gay, what is your first reaction? How do you “see” them? What kind of “glasses” do you have on? Are you comfortably able to speak with confidence, using the right language, when this topic comes up? In When Gay Comes Home, you will learn about the redemptive power of God and it will guide you in how to put on your Jesus glasses, helping you to communicate in a loving and respectful way, thus building bridges instead of walls. Never before have we faced such challenges in our culture with respect to issues of our sexuality and gender identity. Wilna van Beek is a voice of wisdom, strength, and courage in the desert. I have not seen this kind of profoundly important information presented so succinctly in any other format. Simplifying and bringing the confusion into an understandable place of dialogue and support, she has captured both the heart of the matter and the challenge of our culture. Families facing unexpected news of a child who “comes out,” or someone dealing with their own internal battle, will find real answers as they wrestle through this emotionally charged topic. Wilna’s bravery, character, and calling are for such a time as this and I thank God for her! —Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson

South Asians make up one of the largest diasporas in the world and Christians form a relatively large share of it. Christians from the Indian subcontinent have successfully transplanted themselves all over the globe, and many from different faith backgrounds have embraced Christianity at overseas locations. This volume includes biblical reflections on diasporic life, charts the historical and geographical spread of South Asian Christianity, and closes with a call to missional living in diaspora. It analyzes how migrants revive Christianity in adopted host nations and ancestral homelands. This book portrays the fascinating saga of Christians of South Asian origin who have pitched their tents in the furthest corners of the globe and showcases triumphs and challenges of scattered communities. It presents the contemporary religious experiences from a plethora of discrete perspectives. It deals with issues such as community history, struggles of identity and belonging, linkage of religious and cultural traditions, preservation and adaptation of faith practices, ties between ancestral homeland and host nation, and diasporic moral dilemmas in diaspora. This book argues that human scattering amplifies diversity within Christianity and for the need for hetrogeneous unity amidst great diversities.

“How Can I More Effectively Reach People of My Generation with the Message of the Gospel?”Start the story where God starts the story.In other words, it’s not about “lifestyle evangelism.” Or being cleverer than the person with whom you’re talking. Or knowing everything there is to know about the Bible.It’s about knowing what’s most important to your friends, family, coworkers, and others you meet along life’s journey. It’s about, to use author Ron Martoia’s words, discovering the “story” each of us lives every waking day of our lives. Once you know that, you’ll know how God’s story fits into our human stories.Jesus spread the Good News this way. He talked to people, asked them questions about who they were, what they were doing–in short, he found out what made each person get out of bed every morning. And then he shared with them a bigger story–and how they fit into it. Jesus knew that when people grasped God’s big picture, they felt compelled–even overjoyed–to be a part of it.In today’s increasingly individualistic, disenfranchised world, it’s never been more important to know God’s story and how one fits into it. Let Transformational Architecture be your guide to reaching those around you with God’s life-changing message of hope.

J. Thomas Ford draws on his background in psychology and philosophy and his extensive study of the world's religions to bring us this unique question-and-answer session with God. Our Heavenly Father communicates with us and serves us every day, assures Ford-but we have to pay attention and let him lead us in all areas of our lives.For anyone seeking comfort and direction in these often troubled times, these pages explore the kinds of issues we all ponder, including how man treats his fellow man, the gift of free will, infinity, science and its relationship to God, unconditional love, death of the physical body, spiritual development, and heaven. As guide, teacher, and mentor, God shows us how the ego keeps us from the knowledge that will set us free and encourages us to maintain faith even when we stumble or lose our way, recognize the beauty in all living beings, overcome perceived limitations, and use the power of thought to realize the miracle that is already within.Inspiring and insightful, In Conversation with the Quantum God illustrates how to take one of our most important relationships-the one with the ultimate Creator-face it head-on, and make it life's most fulfilling experience.

The Great Conversation Descartes Through Derrida And Quine

Ideal for courses in introductory or modern and contemporary philosophy, The Great Conversation: A Historical Introduction to Philosophy, Volume II: Descartes through Derrida and Quine covers the same material as the second half (chapters 12-26) of author Norman Melchert's longer volume, The Great Conversation. Now in its fifth edition, this historically organized introductory text treats philosophy as a dramatic and continuous story--a conversation about humankind's deepest and most persistent concerns. Tracing the exchange of ideas between history's key philosophers, the book demonstrates that while constructing an argument or making a claim, one philosopher almost always has others in mind. It addresses the fundamental questions of human life: Who are we? What can we know? How should we live? and What sort of reality do we inhabit? The fifth edition retains the distinctive feature of previous editions: Melchert provides a generous selection of excerpts from major philosophical works and makes them more easily understandable to students with his own lucid and engaging explanations. Ranging from Descartes to Derrida and Quine, the selections are organized historically and include a translation of Descartes'Meditations on First Philosophy (the complete work). The author's commentary offers a rich intellectual and cultural context for the philosophical ideas conveyed in the excerpts. Extensive cross-referencing shows students how philosophers respond appreciatively or critically to the thoughts of other philosophers. The text is enhanced by two types of exercises--"Basic Questions" and "For Further Thought"--and more than thirty illustrations. New to the Fifth Edition * A new chapter (25) on Simone de Beauvoir and her contributions to philosophy * New profiles of the Buddha and Jean-Jacques Rousseau * Review questions that are now dispersed throughout the chapters (instead of at chapter ends) to follow relevant passages and facilitate classroom discussion * Six new images, including explanatory cartoons that help students understand key concepts * A revised Instructor's Manual and Test Bank containing essential points, teaching suggestions, and multiple-choice, short-answer, and essay exam questions Also available to suit your course needs: The Great Conversation: A Historical Introduction to Philosophy, Fifth Edition (combined volume covering the Pre-Socratics through Derrida and Quine) and The Great Conversation: Volume I: Pre-Socratics through Descartes, Fifth Edition (includes chapters 1-13 of the combined volume).
