What does a community that testifies to God's power look like? God’s people are called to a togetherness and commitment that transcends all natural boundaries—whether ethnic, generational, or economic. But such a community can be enjoyed only when it relies on the power of God in the gospel. In The Compelling Community, pastors Mark Dever and Jamie Dunlop cast a captivating vision for authentic fellowship in the local church that goes beyond small groups. Full of biblical principles and practical advice, this book will help pastors lead their congregations toward the kind of community that glorifies God, edifies his people, and attracts the lost.

Many pastors conceive of the church budget as primarily a financial tool, but in fact it is primarily a pastoral tool. A church's philosophy of ministry is locked into its budget, and so the budget will either stifle or accelerate any attempts to move a congregation toward a biblical model of church health. As such, the church budget is a far more potent pastoral tool than many church leaders realize. Budgeting for a Healthy Church examines each section of the budget in light of Biblical principles to show how a church budget can lock in healthy approaches to ministry. Whereas most books on church budgeting are "how" books, explaining how the budgeting process should work, this is a "what" book, helping church leaders determine the pastoral implications of what they choose to fund in their budgets.

If youre looking for a feel good read, Outside the Camp is not it. If you want joy without lament, grace without sin, light without darkness or love without pain, read something else. In fact, the wince factor of this book is through the roof, and I thought someone ought to warn you. But if you want to read something that is profoundly and Biblically true, revolutionary and life-changing, this is it. Garth has given Gods people a wonderful gift, and I rise up and call him blessed. You will, too! Steve Brown, professor, author, radio show host, and leader of Key Life Network I have more thoughts, emotions, and places your story took me than I am able to capture. I had to let you know that the Lord has deeply impacted me through your book. Thank you. Jim Amandus, Senior Pastor at Highlands Community Church near Seattle Outside the Camp tells the story of a former pastors journey through a season of turmoil and personal failure. The story of his decade of disillusionment sets the context for his observations as a church outsider in regards to how evangelical churches often fail in response to the wounded, the outcasts, and the sinners in their midst. Offered in the form of Biblical lament, three concerns are addressed: the evangelical church does not truly offeror even fully understandthe gospel of grace it preaches, instead suggesting that believers need to try harder and do more to prove themselves worthy of Gods favor, the faith community is artificial rather than authentic, and too often the wounds of its soldiers are left unattended, people whose pain is too deep and complex for the church to easily comprehend are referred outside the church for the help they need to survive, or they are simply neglected. The book concludes with a consideration of Gods intent to restore sinners by offering grace that is full and free, with a call for the church to once again communicate the unadulterated gospel to all who need its healing balm.

"Attempts to answer these questions showcase the theme of unity in diversity and address Benedictine monasticism in broad, institutional strokes as well as in the very specific practices and narratives of monastics, oblates, and others living in various communities. In this volume, you will hear the voices of many community members-young and old, men and women, Benedictines and intentional community members-all speaking from the heart of their lived experience and wisdom."--BOOK JACKET.

The Compelling Faces Of Jesus Christ

Jesus is the central figure in the Christian faith. Nevertheless, the Church has struggled to bring into clear focus their understanding of that phrase. The meaning of the phrase "the more than man," which the Church has declared about Jesus for two centuries has been difficult to understand and has been interpreted in varied ways by biblical scholars, theologians, philosophers, poets, artist, and ordinary persons. This volume is the author's reflection on his lifelong quest on the question of Christology. In seeking to discern who Jesus is, the author has explored the meaning of the Incarnation, Christ as a teacher, healer, and the rejected, crucified, and risen one. Finally he probes the meaning of the Christ as a present reality today and how he can still be known. The ink drawings by Israel Galindo invite the reader to probe in a visual manner the rich interpretation of the compelling faces of Jesus.

"Relying largely on the work of peace- and conflict-resolution scholars from many disciplines, Peacebuilding for Adolescents presents proactive strategies for educators and community leaders. In order to deter adolescent violence, educators have been responding to increasing levels of school violence by severely punishing aggressive children, and politicians have been clamoring for tougher criminal justice measures to deter youth from crime. The authors in this book argue, instead, for a more humane response by teaching young people to value peace, to learn to manage their own conflicts, and to live more peacefully. They take a broad view that ranges over three strategic levels of analysis - personal, school, and community. They argue for the promotion of a culture of nonviolence in the schools to help create what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called the beloved community."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
