Best-selling author Richard J. Foster offers a warm, compelling, and sensitive primer on prayer, helping us to understand, experience, and practice it in its many forms-from the simple prayer of beginning again to unceasing prayer. He clarifies the prayer process, answers common misconceptions, and shows the way into prayers of contemplation, healing, blessing, forgiveness, and rest. Coming to prayer is like coming home, Foster says. "Nothing feels more right, more like what we are created to be and to do. Yet at the same time we are confronted with great mysteries. Who hasn't struggled with the puzzle of unanswered prayer? Who hasn't wondered how a finite person can commune with the infinite Creator of the universe? Who hasn't questioned whether prayer isn't merely psychological manipulation after all? We do our best, of course, to answer these knotty questions but when all is said and done, there is a sense in which these mysteries remain unanswered and unanswerable . . . At such times we must learn to become comfortable with the mystery." Foster shows how prayer can move us inward into personal transformation, upward toward intimacy with God, and outward to minister to others. He leads us beyond questions to a deeper understanding and practice of prayer, bringing us closer to God, to ourselves, and to our community.

Every follower of Jesus is called to have a praying life. But many confess that they are too busy to pray. This book is a record of observations, experiences, reflections, and biblical and theological conclusions, written by a busy pastor who discovered praying as a conversation with God that has lasted for forty years. It is also a challenge to pray, and a call to a praying lifestyle. The conviction of the author is that what the Church most needs today is to recover praying as a relationship with God, and not as a duty to God. This book will inspire you to experience prayer, not as something we have to do, but as something we cannot do without.

This exciting book focuses on small steps . . . many small steps . . . to transform your life."--Elmer L. Towns, cofounder and vice president, Liberty University "Are you tired, worn down, discouraged, and longing for a vibrant life--a new you? Then this book is the prescription you need. Nelson Searcy and Jennifer Dykes Henson have compiled a simple, yet comprehensive, list of biblical principles anchored in scientific fact that when applied energizes the tired, rejuvenates the worn down, and invigorates the discouraged. Because of God's design for life, if you do what this book teaches, you cannot avoid a healthier and happier life."--Timothy R. Jennings, MD, DFAPA, psychiatrist and author of The Aging Brain and The God-Shaped Brain "The New You is like a handbook for life. The content is clear, concise, and compelling. And Nelson and Jennifer write in a style that is straightforward, biblical, and highly practical. Your life will be better if you read and do what this book says."--Lance Witt, founder, Replenish Ministries "Having no vision for your life should be alarming. However, having a big vision with no plan is senseless. This book will help you cultivate both! I love what Nelson and Jennifer have done because they've made complicated concepts incredibly approachable. You're going to want to keep this book near you for the rest of your life."--Clay Scroggins, lead pastor, North Point Community Church "The New You proves a timely book, as Christians are recognizing in increasing number the call to offer our bodies as living sacrifices (Rom. 12:1)."--Matthew C. Easter, assistant professor of Bible, Missouri Baptist University "The best book in a long time about how to balance spiritual and physical health! Searcy and Henson give an easy-to-follow plan for improving health while growing your spiritual life. Keep this book on your nightstand, in your car, or in your bag to consult it often and learn how physical health and spiritual growth were intended to work together."--Bob Whitesel, DMin PhD, award-winning author of 13 books, coach, consultant, and speaker on church health and growth at ChurchHealth.net "Progress, not perfection! This approach to life keeps me sane and moving in the right direction. It is also what makes The New You such a valuable tool for making the most of your wellness. Read and apply this book and your total person will be transformed!"--Steve Reynolds, pastor of Capital Baptist Church in Annandale, Virginia, and author of Bod4God: Twelve Weeks to Lasting Weight Loss "A refreshing and eye-opening read. Their practical and frank confrontation of the questions and unhealthy habits we often have encourages truthful reflection on how we serve as ministers and Christians. This is balanced brilliantly with the small steps to change, which provide motivation and are nonthreatening for persons who can become overwhelmed by just thinking about getting healthy."--Dwight Fletcher, founder and senior pastor, Transformed Life Church, Kingston, Jamaica "I was not a healthy pastor. I was overweight, out of shape, stressed out, and headed for an early grave. Two years ago, I finally decided to put into practice the principles that Nelson shares in this new book, the same principles that he has been living and sharing with me through coaching. Nelson is right, it really is the small things, done consistently over time, that make a huge impact in every area of life. In the past two years I've lost over eighty-five pounds and kept it off. I have more energy than I've ever had and I'm healthier than I've ever been. I cannot wait to share this book with you! You really are one small step away from a brand new you!"--Pastor Chris Rollins, Coastal Community Church, Charleston, South Carolina "Nelson has been my friend and role model for ministry for nearly thirty years. I have witnessed him excel in every area of life from school to family life to church leadership. The principles that have helped him to be a good friend, husband, father, and pastor are shared in The New You in order to take you from an average life to an abundant life!"--Michael A. Jordan, pastor, Mount Vernon Baptist Church, Axton, Virginia "In The New You, Nelson and Jennifer not only give the reader a checkup but they also give strategies for improving the most important areas of life. If you desire greater energy, clearer thinking, and spiritual vitality, this is the book for you."--Brian Moore, lead pastor, Crosspointe Church Anaheim "This book will strengthen your life, regardless of your faith. You will walk away stronger mentally, spiritually, physically, and emotionally. From the first chapter to the last, you will find big and small ideas you can use now. Don't wait, buy this book now."--Jimmy Britt, lead pastor, Rocky River Church, Charlotte, North Carolina "Nelson and Jennifer have done it again! Having known Nelson for over a decade, I have personally benefited from the teachings in this book. I recommend this book to everyone! And I think it would be a great book for small group study too."--Dr. Rick Mandl, senior pastor, Eagle Rock Baptist Church, Los Angeles, California "The New You is actually about reclaiming YOU! The YOU God envisioned . . . the YOU God created . . . the YOU God loves. In addition to physical health, Nelson and Jennifer delve into the spiritual, emotional, and mental dimensions of what makes for a healthy YOU. And that's where The New You really shines. Their holistic approach to your health provides insights galore and, at the end of each chapter, simple and specific strategies to help YOU reclaim more of what God intended for YOU all along!"--Pastor Kent Wilson, creator of 9Minutes2Fit workout program, certified functional aging specialist, and assistant to the bishop in the Northwestern Ohio Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America "Wholeness and healing are at the top of God's priority list. By clearly explaining the biblical principles that point to full health, the authors make human wholeness not only understandable but, through a series of small steps, doable."--Stan Pegram, lead pastor, BMZ Regional Church

'"Can't anyone teach me how to pray?" Millions of people today are asking the same question. There is a sense of the necessity of prayer - we have to pray. But how?' Prayer is central to Christian faith; indeed, as Timothy Keller notes in his introduction, it is the main way we experience deep change. Yet so many people struggle with prayer - a struggle that the author himself has shared. This wise and inspiring book is the fruit of those struggles, offering a real and glorious vision of what it can mean to seek God in prayer. Keller begins by giving a theological underpinning of what prayer actually is - both conversation and encounter with a personal God - before describing how we can learn to pray, and then deepen that prayer. Finally he gives detailed, practical suggestions on how to make prayer a part of the reality of daily life.

Zwei weise Männer, eine Botschaft Sie sind zwei der bedeutendsten Leitfiguren unserer Zeit: Seine Heiligkeit der Dalai Lama und Erzbischof Desmond Tutu. Obwohl ihr Leben von vielen Widrigkeiten und Gefahren geprägt war, strahlen sie eine Freude aus, die durch nichts zu erschüttern ist. Im Buch der Freude vereinen die „Brüder im Geiste“ ihre immense Lebenserfahrung und die Weisheit ihrer Weltreligionen zu einer gemeinsamen zentralen Erkenntnis: Nur tief empfundene Freude kann sowohl das Leben des Einzelnen als auch das globale Geschehen spürbar zum Positiven wandeln. Unabhängig von allen Herausforderungen und Krisen, mit denen wir täglich konfrontiert werden, können wir diese Energie in uns entfalten und weitergeben. So wird die Freude zur Triebkraft, die unserem Dasein mehr Liebe und Sinn verleiht – und zugleich Hoffnung und Frieden in unsere unsichere Welt bringt.

"Im Himmel war ich zu Hause; dort gehörte ich hin. An diesem Ort wollte ich sein, mehr als ich jemals irgendwo auf der Erde hatte sein wollen. Die Zeit war nicht mehr, und ich lebte einfach in der Gegenwart. Alle Sorgen, Ängste und Bedenken waren verschwunden. Ich war völlig bedürfnislos und fühlte mich vollkommen glücklich." Don Piper Bei einem schweren Verkehrsunfall wurde Don Pipers Auto von einem LKW völlig zerquetscht. Die Sanitäter konnten nur noch Pipers Tod feststellen. Sein lebloser Körper lag in dem Autowrack, doch seine Seele erlebte bereits die unbeschreibliche Schönheit des Himmels. 90 Minuten nach dem Unfall kehrte Don Piper wie durch ein Wunder ins Leben zurück. In den folgenden Monaten durchlebte er eine schmerzhafte Zeit der Rekonvaleszenz. Doch was ihn in dieser Zeit tröstete, waren die wunderbaren Erlebnisse im Himmel.

Doch nun lässt er seine Leser an diesem einzigartigen Erlebnis teilhaben. Erfahren Sie, wie sich sein Leben nach diesem Unfall grundlegend änderte. Und lassen auch Sie sich davon verändern! Mit über 4 Millionen verkauften Exemplaren ermutigte und tröstete dieser Bestseller bereits zahlreiche Menschen.
