If we are honest, we have to admit that there are many things we don’t understand about God. We do not have final answers to the deep problems of life, and those who say they do are probably living in some degree of delusion. There are areas of mystery in our Christian faith that lie beyond the keenest scholarship or even the most profound spiritual exercises.For many people, these problems raise so many questions and uncertainties that faith itself becomes a struggle, and the very person and character of God are called into question. Chris Wright encourages us to face up to the limitations of our understanding and to acknowledge the pain and grief they can often cause. But at the same time, he wants us to be able to say, like the psalmist in Psalm 73: “But that’s all right. God is ultimately in charge and I can trust him to put things right. Meanwhile, I will stay near to my God, make him my refuge, and go on telling of his deeds.”

Keeping a relationship alive and successful can be immensely challenging in today’s world. More often than not, relationships fail because the nucleus of the partnership has been based on selfish needs, desires, and purposes instead of spiritual truths. In his guidebook What We Don’t Understand about Relationships, Dr. Larry Adams offers practical tips, Scriptures, and advice that will help anyone learn to apply Christian values and principles to their relationship, ultimately realizing a lasting and loving partnership. Dr. Adams, a biblical counselor and Bible teacher for nearly thirty years, relies on his education and the word of God as he carefully reexamines relationships from a spiritual perspective and reveals misunderstood truths about relationships and why they fail. By teaching concepts that relationships are not natural and should not be based on emotional or physical feelings, Dr. Adams introduces a fresh perspective that focuses on spiritual commitments, effective communication, forgiveness, and thinking of others first before ourselves. What We Don’t Understand about Relationships shares practical advice and applicable Scriptures that will help anyone struggling within a relationship to lay a new foundation based on seeking oneness with God first, and then each other.

By the early second century the Christian Church was predominantly Gentile, having separated from its Jewish roots and base. It lost most all understanding of Jewish culture. Very few in the church could read Hebrew, and as significantly, its Scriptures were in Greek, which contributed to its growing ignorance of the intricacies of Jewish word play. They could not and did not retain the richness, the interconnectedness, and the brilliance of the Hebrew writing, and thereby misinterpreted much of what they cherished. Today, many, if not most, Christians also lack the basic knowhow needed to adequately appreciate our Jewish-written Scriptures. This little 150 page book will not heal what ails us, but in a light, sometimes fun, other times serious way, it will help, and that is needed. It may even erase a few of the lines that separate our two great communities-Jewish and Christian-and remind us of our shared humanity and Faith. Creative, insightful, humorous, sensitive, challenging, thought provoking . . . . What other words are used to describe this book and its author? See pages iv and v.

New to the band, Flo finds herself the only girl in a man's world, and she kept this diary to deal with her changing life. She captures the band's plight as they tour North America, living on stranger's couches, fighting among themselves, getting and losing record deals, and performing for just enough cash to make it to the next town. In addition to the pursuit of rock stardom, Flo also seriously studied the pagan religion of Wicca, and her spiritual life grows and changes as the pages turn. You will laugh at the idiocy, experience the raging, energetic crowds from the view of a drummer playing on stage, and recognize the struggle bands go through to meet their definition of success. Full of the drugs, the drama, and the dreams of rock and roll, Diary of a Redneck Vampire pushes limits and exposes the ugly truth of the beginning stages of a band in their struggle to make it in the music industry, shared uniquely from the perspective of a female participant.

What's in your God-box? Each of us, says author Anne Robertson, builds our own way of understanding God-our God-box-- and fills it up with bits of scripture, wisdom, and our experiences of God at work in our lives. It's a perfectly good way to puzzle out what God means to us. Encountering God through our human limitations, we learn something about the meaning of Incarnation. But to say that our experience of God is the only valid one is to put a lid on the box and create an idol. This book is about examining our God-boxes and bursting them wide open. Blowing the Lid Off the God-Box starts with the ministry of Jesus - who blew the lid off everyone's God-box by constantly challenging his followers with the unexpected. Subsequent chapters examine the God-boxes we create with scripture, worship, and political and social agendas.

God I’m Returning Your Word It Don’t Work shows us how the Word of God works through the examination of biblical teachings. Throughout the scriptures, God shows us how simple it is to understand his Word. This is accomplished in the Bible through examples such as a sword, living water, a plumb line, seed, fire, and rain. As believers, when we get a clear understanding of how these examples work, we will more clearly understand how the Word of God works. From that point we can use the Word of God in our lives to our advantage. This is crucial if we are going to have victory in our lives.

The Bible is the most influential book in human history. But what are we supposed to do with it in the 21st century? And even more importantly, can it still be trusted as the Word of God? Confusion and doubt about the Bible are becoming as common inside the church as they are outside. Questions come from all sides: Is the Bible anti-intellectual? Has the biblical text been corrupted over the centuries? Who really chose the books of the Bible and why? Which interpretation of the Bible is correct? Are the gospels full of contradictions? There are an unprecedented number of sophisticated attacks on the origin, credibility, and reliability of the Bible today. Secularism has tried to undercut even the possibility of spiritual or moral knowledge. Skepticism toward institutional religion is at an all-time high. Yet, the Bible claims that truth is knowable and God is actively involved in our world. What are we to do? Pray for wisdom. Think clearly. Pick up your Bible. Read through the 11 major challenges presented in these pages. And be ready.

Volume Two: "God's been speaking to me so much about His love and how it affects areas of life I never really thought about before, areas that I'm realizing are almost impossible to achieve victory in apart from His love working in me. It honestly amazes me. Truly we can do nothing apart from the transforming work of God's love through the Holy Spirit in our lives. All our best efforts apart from this love are just so much wood, hay and stubble. Imagine what would happen to our churches if more of us made this realization. I have to admit it's a realization fraught with discoveries of just how soiled a heart can be and the needed washing and cleansing that has to happen as a result of the light of God's love being shone on it. But as long as I can keep from recoiling, as long as I can keep choosing to present my heart wide open to my Lord, as long as I don't shrink back from the transforming work going on in my life, then I can look forward to what is ahead." Becoming the Bride of Christ chronicles my personal journey as I learn to live with God as unseen Husband and Father in the home. It's about learning to appropriate many Scriptural concepts that we've overly spiritualized, and bringing them down to where life is lived every day.

Finding God in the Mirror deals with the mental and spiritual struggle we experience in confronting the need for change in our lives and finding our way back to an intimate relationship with God. Part One of this book talks about the importance of knowing who you are in God's eyes as opposed to the eyes of the world and encourages people to break away from the commonality of the world and to embrace peculiarity in the spirit. I reflect on different influences in the world that cause us to fall short of God's glory in our lives, such as fame, popularity, and materialism. I also focus on our failure to sacrifice old ways, lack of devotion to prayer and the downfall of seeking fulfillment in the arms of others instead of in the arms of God. Part Two of this book is dedicated to the acknowledgement of God's faithfulness. God is an attainable being who not only has all power and dominion in His hands but has more love in His heart than any other being.
