Grace Comes in Person Jesus came to earth in person, to minister grace in forgiveness, acceptance, and love. If we believe in Jesus, then we will also minister his grace to one another. When we know at what cost he purchased our redemption, we will freely forgive. When we experience his acceptance, we will accept others in his name. When we know the transforming power of his love, the world will know we are his disciples by our love for one another. Jesus loves us and laid his life down for us. He accepted us just as we are and forgave all our sins. So we can minister his grace in person, accepting, forgiving, and loving in his name. Then the grace of God brought to us in person by Jesus will not be in vain. Cynthia Shigo is a missionary and the daughter of missionaries, who lives in Budapest, Hungary, with her husband, Joel. Cynthia received her MA in Educational Administration from Temple University. She is an educational consultant with SHARE Education Services, a consulting organization which helps missionaries and expatriates educate their children in difficult places. It is her desire to bring God's grace in person to the world. Joel Shigo accepted God's grace in person as a college freshman in Barcelona, Spain. He received his MA in Biblical Studies from Westminster Seminary and has served as a pastor and Bible college teacher in Colorado and Hungary. Joel is the Director of the Christian Institute of Hungary. His father's family is Hungarian, and it is Joel's calling to minister God's forgiveness, acceptance, and love in person in Hungary, that the grace of God to him will not be in vain.

If the Apostle Paul were here with us today, what would he say to help us cope with tough times? One of the most startling revelations believers face is that dedicating their life to Christ does not shield them from the trials of life or the blows of an enemy attack. The truth is, when we make the decision to live for Christ, the battle is on. Yet the answer is not to give up when we grow weary in the fight. Instead, take note from the Apostle Paul as he speaks to the church of Philippi and find restored confidence in the fact that Christ has assured our victory. Dr. John R. Adolph is magnificent at communicating complex spiritual principles in simple everyday language. In I'm Coming Out of This! Dr. Adolph teaches what is required to find the faith and determination of Paul that is within the heart of every believer. He uses biblical and practical illustrations to inspire and empower believers to stand up to the enemy while in the heat of the battle and leads warriors of the faith in the battle cry: I'm Coming Out of This!

A theologian discusses bridging the gap between the LGBTQ community and the fundamental oppression of traditional Christian doctrines. Throughout the history of Christianity, the LGBTQ community has been condemned as unrepentant sinners who are in dire need of God’s saving grace. As a result of this condemnation, they have been subjected to great spiritual, emotional and physical abuse and violence. This issue has taken on a particular urgency in light of the horrific string of suicides of young people who were subjected to harassment and bullying by their classmates because of their gender identities or sexual preferences. In From Sin to Amazing Grace, Cheng argues that people need to be liberated from the traditional thinking about sin as a violation of divine and natural laws in which grace is understood as the strength to refrain from violating such laws. He proposes a Christological model based upon the theologies of Irenaeus, Bonaventure, and Barth, in which sin and grace are defined in terms of what God has done for us in Jesus Christ. This book will serve as a useful resource for all people who struggle to make sense of traditional Christian doctrines in the context of the twenty-first century.

This collection of essays focuses on Canadian history and its legacies as represented in novels and films in English and French, produced in Canada mainly in the 1980s and 1990s. The approach is both cross-cultural and interdisciplinary, aiming at articulating Canadian differences through a comparison of anglophone and francophone cultures, illustrated by works treating some of the different groups which make up Canadian society - English-Canadian, Québecois, Acadian, Native, and ethnic minorities. The emphasis is on the problematic representation of Canadianness, which is closely bound up with constructions of history and its legacies - dispossession, criminality, nomadism, Gothicism, the Maritime. The English/French language difference is emblematic of Canadian difference; the two-part arrangement, with one section on Literature and the other on Film, sets up the pattern of relationships between the two forms of cultural representation that these essays explore. Essays in the Literature section are on single texts by such writers as: Margaret Atwood, Tomson Highway, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Anne Michaels, and Alice Munro; Gabrielle Roy, Anne Hébert, Antonine Maillet, Bernard Assiniwi, and Régine Robin. The Film section with its mirror structure both supplements and amplifies this dialogue, extending notions of Canadianness with its emphasis on voices from Quebec and Acadia traditionally 'othered' in Canadian history. Filmmakers treated include: Phillip Borsos, Atom Egoyan, Ted Kotcheff, Mort Ransen, and Vincent Ward; Denys Arcand, Gilles Carle, Alanis Obomsawin, Léa Pool, and Jacques Savoie.

It also includes a study guide for an in-depth look at each attribute: Infinite Immense Good Just Merciful Gracious Omnipresent Immanent Holy Perfect Steeped in Scripture and filled with the Spirit, Tozer preached with striking clarity and power. The sense of his sermons comes through on every page, bringing the Word of God to bear upon you. "If a sermon can be compared to light, then A.W. Tozer released a laser beam from the pulpit, a beam that penetrated the heart." — Warren Wiersbe, former pastor of The Moody Church

An Unjust God

First-timeTranslation in English - - - The relationship between Christians and Jews has often been very tense, with misunderstandings of Paul's teachings contributing to the problem. Jacques Ellul's careful exegesis of Romans 9-11 demonstrates how God has not rejected Israel. The title is taken from the verse, Is there some injustice in God? The answer is a clear no. God's election simply expanded outward beyond Israel to reach all peoples of the earth. In the end, there will be a reconciliation of Jews and Christians within God's plan of salvation. Written in 1991, three years before Ellul died, An Unjust God? brings a new understanding to a section of Scripture known for its conventional and limited interpretations. One significant feature of the book is Ellul's personal experience of the suffering of Jews under the Nazi regime; and this has direct bearing for the way he links the sufferings of Israel with the sufferings of Jesus. Ellul is then bold enough to say that a major reason why the Jewish people have not accepted Jesus as Messiah is because the Christian Church has not done well to emulate the Jewish Savior of the world.

A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR From the New York Times-bestselling author of The Cloister Walk, a book about Christianity, spirituality, and rediscovered faith. Struggling with her return to the Christian church after many years away, Kathleen Norris found it was the language of Christianity that most distanced her from faith. Words like "judgment," "faith," "dogma," "salvation," "sinner"—even "Christ"—formed what she called her "scary vocabulary," words that had become so codified or abstract that their meanings were all but impenetrable. She found she had to wrestle with them and make them her own before they could confer their blessings and their grace. Blending history, theology, storytelling, etymology, and memoir, Norris uses these words as a starting point for reflection, and offers a moving account of her own gradual conversion. She evokes a rich spirituality rooted firmly in the chaos of everyday life—and offers believers and doubters alike an illuminating perspective on how we can embrace ancient traditions and find faith in the contemporary world.

This first-ever biography of American painter Grace Hartigan traces her rise from virtually self-taught painter to art-world fame, her plunge into obscurity after leaving New York to marry a scientist in Baltimore, and her constant efforts to reinvent her style and subject matter. Along the way, there were multiple affairs, four troubled marriages, a long battle with alcoholism, and a chilly relationship with her only child. Attempting to channel her vague ambitions after an early marriage, Grace struggled to master the basics of drawing in night-school classes. She moved to New York in her early twenties and befriended Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, and other artists who were pioneering Abstract Expressionism. Although praised for the coloristic brio of her abstract paintings, she began working figuratively, a move that was much criticized but ultimately vindicated when the Museum of Modern Art purchased her painting The Persian Jacket in 1953. By the mid-fifties, she freely combined abstract and representational elements. Grace-who signed her paintings "Hartigan"- was a full-fledged member of the "men's club" that was the 1950s art scene. Featured in Time, Newsweek, Life, and Look, she was the only woman in MoMA's groundbreaking 12 Americans exhibition in 1956, and the youngest artist-and again, only woman-in The New American Painting, which toured Europe in 1958-1959. Two years later she moved to Baltimore, where she became legendary for her signature tough-love counsel to her art school students. Grace continued to paint throughout her life, seeking-for better or worse-something truer and fiercer than beauty.
