For all the debate about belief and nonbelief in today’s world—and how everyone becomes pigeonholed by one or the other— Tomáš Halík teaches that God requires us to persevere with our doubts, carry them in our hearts, and allow them to lead us to maturity. For Halík, patience is the main difference between faith and atheism. Faith, hope, and love are three aspects of patience in the face of God’s silence, which is interpreted as “the death of God” by atheists and is not taken seriously enough by fundamentalists. Using the gospel story of Jesus’s encounter with Zacchaeus, Halík issues an invitation to all people who stand (like Zacchaeus did) on the sideline—curious but noncommittal. The fact that Jesus gravitated to the poor and the marginalized means that he also has a special place in his heart for diligent seekers on the margins of the community of believers.

As Laura admits adultery to her husband, a merciless war erupts in their matrimony. The husband fails to function as a rational human any longer, as the knowledge of another man destroys his identity, awakening the murderer within him. The demon of jealousy causes obsessive rivalry between the husband and the lover, causing Laura to rediscover truth and values. In the house next door, a Bosnian Muslim experiences same drama globally, as a cruel war, ethnic cleansing, massacre, and systematic mass rape is happening in her homeland, to her very own people. The two women merge into one and undergo transformation of their spiritual and physical identity through tragedy in which male ego destroys and creates the world. Devaluation of values and hypocrisy of civilization cause the women to rebel and search for ultimate truth and justice. This combination of diary prose containing features of an urban love story is wrapped up in a deep, intimate rhythm of the self-enticed prayers of a modern woman, who is in search of ultimate strength and higher meaning of existence with both flowers and thorns she has to find meaning in.

It has been said that there can be no true faith where the will of God is hidden. Likewise, there can be no true faith where patience has not been demonstrated. Have you ever wondered what factors were at work during the time between Abraham's promise and the provision? Have you ever considered why 25 years passed before Abraham received a promise that God gave him the faith to receive? The God of Patience explores the power of patience in establishing sonship in the life of Abraham. By examining the principle of patience, and its relationship to faith, The God Of Patience guides the reader into God's heart and mind as he constructs the character and trust of the man who would become the prototype known as the "Father of Faith." As you delve into the truths of The God of Patience, experience the battles, victories, defeats and ultimate triumph Abraham wins as aligned with the purpose, plans and pace of The Almighty! Dexter Yelverton is Founder/President of Strong Arm Ministries, a nonprofit initiative with an evangelistic mandate to empower individuals, communities and its constituent's spiritual, mental and physical well being through sound biblical, economic and health education. He is sought for his gift of teaching and exhortation. He speaks at various workshops and conferences as well as serves on local boards and advisory commissions. As a Christian, Dexter's passion is to encourage and empower people to rely on and rest in the sovereign rule of God and the finished work of Jesus Christ.

Jurgen Moltmann and others contend that Christian theology and the church face a dual crisis--one of relevance and the other of identity. Despite making this pronouncement nearly forty years ago, the church in the West continues to struggle with this crisis. Several proposals have been espoused, from the way of wisdom to the way of ecclesial praxis. Yet, little attention is given in Protestant theological discourse to the role God's beauty plays in bringing theology and ethics together. By neglecting God's beauty for theological discourse, we risk diminishing Christian worship, witness, and wisdom. God's Beauty-in-Act addresses these issues, in part, by arguing that the redemptive-creative suffering and glorious resurrection of Christ are the nexus of God's being, beauty, and Christian living. God's beauty, understood as the fittingness of the incarnate Son's actions in the Spirit to the Father's will, radiates God's glory and draws perceivers into the dramatic movements of God's triune life. These movements serve as the patterns that shape the imagination, enabling participants to perform their parts creatively and fittingly in God's drama of redemption. In doing so, human beings flourish as they jettison false identities and realities of their own making that are incommensurate with God's purpose found in Christ by the Spirit.

There are many devotional books available containing brief, daily inspirations that benefit all who read them. This book is different in two respects. The first is obvious: it contains two readings per day—732 in all. The second, more important difference is that the author wanted to do more than offer inspiration; this would make this book no different than so many others. The messages in the book are study sketches in that the content is not only inspirational, but also educational, challenging, and encouraging. Most of these writings were based on author Michael J. Akers’s teaching of adult Bible studies for more than thirty years and learning what really brought adults to want to deepen their knowledge and application of the Word of God.

“Lord, I want patience, and I want it right now!” It is easier to joke about patience than to become patient. You can tell that God is growing patience in you when you run into frustrating experiences; when others fail to meet your expectations; when people you depend on let you down. Most of all, you know you are learning patience when you call out to the Lord for help and he seems to be on vacation. In the face of such trials, the Bible tells us that patience is worth the wait. This Fruit of the Spirit Bible study helps you discover the benefits of waiting.The eight-volume Fruit of the Spirit Bible Studies series not only helps you discover what the Bible says about the vital traits that the Holy Spirit produces in believers, but also moves you beyond reflection and discussion to application. Designed for use in small groups or personal devotions, the interactive format will help you grow in your ability to reflect the character of Jesus.Revised to include:Expanded leader’s notesBetween-studies applicationsSuggestions for prayer
