Why do we worship? Do we do it simply because it's part of a church service, or does it spring from a heart of genuine praise? The Bible gives us a clear picture of what worship is--and isn't--about. In eight studies Sundee Tucker Frazier helps you dig into the Bible, learning how to worship with your whole life and taking you to the heart of the matter--the character of the God who loves you. This LifeGuide Bible Study features questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with leader's notes and a "Now or Later" section in each study.
Which translation do I choose?
In an age when there is a wide choice of English Bible translations, the issues involved in Bible translating are steadily gaining interest. Consumers often wonder what separates one Bible version from another.
The contributors to this book argue that there are significant differences between literal translations and the alternatives. The task of those who employ an essentially literal Bible translation philosophy is to produce a translation that remains faithful to the original languages, preserving as much of the original form and meaning as possible while still communicating effectively and clearly in the receptors' languages.
Translating Truth advocates essentially literal Bible translation and in an attempt to foster an edifying dialogue concerning translation philosophy. It addresses what constitutes "good" translation, common myths about word-for-word translations, and the importance of preserving the authenticity of the Bible text. The essays in this book offer clear and enlightening insights into the foundational ideas of essentially literal Bible translation.
God is loving and powerful. He is able to work against some of the strongest forces of hate in the world. You can imitate God's justice by fighting against these same powers in your own life and in the lives of those around you. Taking a fresh look at this theme throughout Scripture, Bob and Carol Hunter challenge you to love justice as God does. And they show you how to work for justice in your everyday life. This revised LifeGuide Bible Study features additional questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with expanded leader's notes and a "Now or Later" section in each study.
Our lives are not neatly compartmentalized. Things do not go as planned, no matter how much planning we do. Because no one wants to waste time on things of no significance, this Bible study directs you to the works of Jeremiah 29:13, "You will seek me and find Me when you seek Me with all of your heart." When we seek Him in our daily takes, we will find Him everywhere, with our whole heart, even in the laundry room. Designed as a women's small group study, each lesson in this book goes beyond merely "looking up the right answer." Instead, this study urges you to make personal application of the passages to your life, not as an afterthought at the end of the lesson but as integral throughout the study.
English summary: Jonah. The stubborn prophet and the gracious God] Surely everybody knows the story of the man who was swallowed by a fish and then was vomited out again. The opus, which is named after him, belongs to world literature. There is talk of Jonah. This is the name of a figure in the Old Testament. It is also the title of one of the writings of the bible which speaks of him and even more so of the doings of God. The book of Jonah is part of the Twelve Minor Prophets which is one of the prophetic books of the Jewish Bible. However there are no prophecies in Jonah apart from a single very short but consequential one which takes place in the town of Ninive. The message is rather conveyed in the form of a prophetic narrative - including a psalm. The LORD, God of Israel and the whole world, shows himself in it on the move. He is able to relent out of compassion and to temper justice with mercy. German description: Wer hat nicht schon von dem Mann, den ein Fisch verschlang und wieder ausspie, gehort? Das Werk, das seinen Namen tragt, gehort zur Weltliteratur. Die Rede ist von aJona. So heisst eine Gestalt im Alten Testament. Den gleichen Namen tragt die Schrift, die von ihm, aber noch mehr von Gottes Tun und Lassen handelt. Sie ist Teil des Buches aZwolfpropheten (Kleine Propheten). Allerdings enthalt das Buch Jona keine Prophetien ausser einer einzigen ganz kurzen wie folgenreichen in der Stadt Ninive. Die Botschaft wird vielmehr als Prophetenerzahlung, in die ein Psalm eingebettet ist, vermittelt. Der HERR, der Gott Israels und der Gott der ganzen Welt, zeigt sich darin abeweglich: Er kann aus Mitleid umkehren und Gnade statt Gericht walten lassen.
Why does God allow so much evil in the world? Is there endless hell, no hell, or a more logical explanation? Does the teaching of endless torment harm you and others? If salvation is by grace and God can save all, why wouldn't He? Is there any force in the universe stronger than love? In this book you will find out why some answers to questions like these can leave you more puzzled than enlightened. You will discover how your theology affects your attitude toward God and others. You will also get a Biblical perspective on how some Christian doctrines have been transformed throughout history from the original, and why some common misconceptions seem to portray the Word of God as a Schizophrenic Gospel.
