Praying Dangerously instructs us that we can grow up spiritually, leaving behind a childish relationship to prayer as a superstitious ritual or mere plea for favors. It encourages readers to recognize the difference between prayer that asks only for reassurance, and prayer that asks for the Ultimate, and stands for transformation. "We can cease being a victims' of God's Will, while at the same time embracing genuine surrender and reliance on the irrefutable power of love, a says author and retreat leader Regina Sara Ryan. Readers of the first edition (published in 2001) were enthusiastic in their praise, calling it a brave and useful book. Prayer groups and church congregations around the U.S. have used it for study, and it has been translated into Dutch, German and French. And the message of the book is more relevant now than it was 10 years ago. The insecurities of our times draw us inward or back to our churches. In prayer groups and retreats of all kinds we are looking for comfort and consolation, for spiritual direction, or for answers to the eternal questions that have always challenged humanity. This book is a valued contribution in that search. This 10th anniversary edition is fully revised, with several completely new chapters including: "The High Cost of Forgivenessa -a subject that challenges everyone-and "Praying on the Subway, a about how our generally busy and often chaotic lives can provide us with a constant impetus for blessing others.

Women Challenge The Lie

This book invites women of all ages into a conversation that challenges the pervasive lie of "never good enough." This common subtext of modern life undermines a woman's appreciation of her own inherent beauty and goodness. The authors recommend 8 Radical Moves that women can make, alone or ideally in the good company of other women, to take on this challenge, to deepen this conversation. The Moves are radical because they aim directly at the center of a woman's being, the inner space of her true nature, her basic goodness, rather than because they require any extreme actions. Nonetheless, the conviction that "never good enough" is a lie requires more than lip service. The authors guide readers in identifying the courage, strength and love they already possess, but habitually deny, to embrace and live by this conviction of self respect, day to day in mind, body and heart. They further encourage women to make this stand with and in the presence of other women to increase everybody's likelihood for success. Regina Sara Ryan, author of numerous books in wellness, women's studies and spirituality (Wellness Workbook; Woman Awake; Igniting the Inner Life) is an elder in her seventies. Shinay Tredeau, a yoga teacher, lifestyle coach, dancer and emerging writer is a "millennial" in her twenties. Together, they bring to this warm and personal treatment a synergy of years of experience in contemplative spiritual practice and dynamic body discipline. Their message is addressed to their sisters, mothers, friends and students, of all ages; to any who suffer from the dis-ease of self-hatred in some form. Each of the 8 Radical Moves provides a slightly different access to clearer self-understanding, leading to self-compassion. For some, the Move to "Inhabit Your Body" will be key to claiming (or reclaiming) a more loving relationship with themselves. For others, the Move called "Learn to Fly" will be just the encouragement needed to refine a spiritual search. Other topics include: - the danger of comparisons with other women - the need to face dark emotions, with compassion - the power of friendship in the quest for self-acceptance - the use of journal writing to articulate developing truth - gratitude as a way of life. This straightforward and challenging narrative is filled with dozens of personal stories, making it ideal for women's groups and book clubs to study and practice.

WHAT IS JESUS WORTH TO YOU? It's easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, he said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily... BUT WHO DO YOU KNOW WHO LIVES LIKE THAT? DO YOU? In Radical, David Platt challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple--then invites you to believe and obey what you have heard. And he tells the dramatic story of what is happening as a "successful" suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus. Finally, he urges you to join in The Radical Experiment -- a one-year journey in authentic discipleship that will transform how you live in a world that desperately needs the Good News Jesus came to bring.

Life Is Never Mainly About Love and Marriage. So Learn to Live and Date for More. Many of you grew up assuming that marriage would meet all of your needs and unlock God’s purposes for you. But God has far more planned for you than your future marriage. Not Yet Married is not about waiting quietly in the corner of the world for God to bring you “the one,” but about inspiring you to live and date for more now. If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of the perfect person, but a pursuit of more of God. He will likely write a love story for you different than the one you would write for yourself, but that’s because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. This book was written to help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.

Dangerous Christian is a war cry for intimacy with God. It's easy to equate following Jesus with being nice. Fighting, for all intents and purposes, has become what the bad guys do. That's the message Shay Robbins learned growing up. Be a good guy. Keep your cool. And don't get too passionate-that's a fast track to sin. But perhaps fighting itself isn't the problem-maybe it's what we're fighting for. We cut other people down to prove our point. We do whatever it takes to get ahead. We puff up our chest and strut around hoping to get others' approval. And many times, we fail to even recognize the spiritual battle raging just beyond the curtain of our senses. In a world obsessed with status and self-satisfaction and a Christian community caught up in culture wars, Dangerous Christian offers an invitation to a radically different way of life. Weaving together personal experience and biblical truth, Shay takes readers on the journey of developing brave hearts to engage our broken world through: -Discovering the radical, passionate love of Jesus Christ -Cultivating a posture of humility and dependence on God -Experiencing intimacy with God that changes us from the inside out -Unleashing the power of the Holy Spirit to fight spiritual battles -Breaking free from fear and turning our wounds into weapons This book is not about working harder or doing more. It's an invitation into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ, which can transform us from passive believers into dangerous weapons for the Gospel. A Dangerous Christian sees the world, themselves, and other people differently. Appearances don't matter so much anymore. Physical prowess is no longer how strength is measured. Faith is. Humility, toughness, prayer, and passion to follow Jesus-that's what has the power to change our world, make the devil tremble and bring glory to God. You and I were created to fight against evil with our Heavenly Father by our side. Following Jesus isn't for wimps. It's the most dangerous thing we could ever do. It will take toughness and grit, passion and gutsiness. But it may not look like you'd expect.
