The irrepressible Jamie Stuart is a phenomenon. This is the story of an extraordinary life that decade-by-decade since the First World War bears witness to Glasgow's people and to the ever-changing backdrop of history. Above all, this is the story of the spirit of Glasgow through the long life of a man who rose above his `sair daunts' to reach out and inspire many thousands of people across Glasgow, the whole of Scotland and right across the Atlantic. Author of the much-loved and widely acclaimed bestseller A Glasgow Bible, this energetic nonagenarian is an unstoppable busy public speaker, always in demand across Scotland to talk about his life and to read from the Bible - as translated into the Glaswegian patter. A successful athlete in his younger days, Jamie has been an actor, airman, salesman and social worker. As an author, he has been amazed to find that A Glasgow Bible has been a bestseller for over 20 years. Above all, he is an evangelist, bringing his Christian faith into his work and inspiring those around him. He has inspired many, many thousands - and this is the story of the deep well-spring of that inspiration. In Still Running, one of Saint Andrew Press's most successful authors, Jamie Stuart launches this book in the year of Saint Andrew Press's 60th anniversary and tells the story of his life. In the process, he inspires readers with his indomitable Christian faith and his unfailing sense of humour.

The Colorful Apocalypse - Journeys in Outsider Art (Paperback): Greg Bottoms The Colorful Apocalypse - Journeys in Outsider Art (Paperback)
Greg Bottoms
R386 Discovery Miles 3 860 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The Reverend Howard Finster was twenty feet tall, suspended in darkness. Or so be appeared in the documentary film that introduced a teenaged Greg Bottoms to the renowned outsider artist whose death would inspire him, fourteen years later, to travel the country. Beginning in Georgia with a trip to Finster's famous Paradise Gardens, his journey - of which The Colorful Apocalypse is a masterly chronicle - is an unparalleled look at the lives and works of some of Finster's contemporaries: the self-taught evangelical artists whose beliefs and neuvres occupy the gray area between madness and Christian ecstasy. Bottoms draws us into the worlds of such figures as William Thomas Thompson, a handicapped ex-millionaire who painted a 300-foot version of the book of Revelation, Norbert Kox, an ex-member of the Outlaws biker gang who now paints apocalyptic visual parables; and Myrtice West, who began painting to express the revelatory visions she had after her daughter's brutal murder. Along the way, Bottoms weaves a powerful narrative, a work that is at once an enthralling travelogue, a series of revealing biographical portraits, and a profound meditation on the chaos of despair and the ways in which creativity can help order our lives.

A largely untold story of an extraordinary historical figure, this biography sheds light on the life of William Sheppard, a 19th-century African American who, for more than 20 years, defied segregation and operated a missionary run by black Americans in the Belgian Congo. This work shows how Sheppard returned to United States periodically, and traveled the country telling tales of his adventures to packed auditoriums. An anthropologist, photographer, big-game hunter, and art collector, the man billed as the "Black Livingstone" helped expose the atrocities that occurred under the reign of King Leopold, and this stirring work tells how he eventually helped to break Belgium's hold on the Congo.

After the conquest of the Americas in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Roman Catholic clergy developed graphic catechisms to use for the conversion of native inhabitants in Latin America. This book presents and analyzes a mid-nineteenth century Andean pictographic catechism produced for speakers of Quechua. A facsimile of the original pictographs is accompanied by supporting text in English (translated from the original Spanish) and Quechua.

The editors provide an introduction that outlines the origin and uses of this catechism as well as the similarities and differences between it and catechisms written for other indigenous groups in Latin America during the colonial period. Endnotes and suggested readings provide further understanding and context for this and other pictographic catechisms from Latin America.

R328 Discovery Miles 3 280 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In this book, two leading ministry experts place the missional church conversation in historical perspective and offer fresh insights for its further development. They begin by providing a helpful review of the genesis of the missional church and offering an insightful critique of the Gospel and Our Culture Network's seminal book "Missional Church," which set the conversation in motion. They map the diverse paths this discussion has taken over the past decade, identifying four primary branches and ten sub-branches of the conversation and placing over one hundred published titles and websites into this framework. The authors then utilize recent developments in biblical and theological perspectives to strengthen and extend the conversation about missional theology, the church's interaction with culture and cultures, and church organization and leadership in relation to the formation of believers as disciples. Professors, students, and church leaders will value this comprehensive overview of the missional movement. It includes a foreword by Alan J. Roxburgh.

A Passionate, Prophetic Summons to Prayer and Fasting We are poised at a key moment in history. Amidst pain and chaos, we can turn the tide of evil in our lands. With excitement and profound insight, seasoned prophetic leader Lou Engle shows how: through bold faith and aggressive, passionate prayer and fasting. Here he equips you with the dynamic, practical tools you need to answer the call of countercultural consecration. Using Jesus as the role model, he reveals that 40 days of prayer and fasting always precede breakthrough, revelations of God's glory, breakage of demonic hindrances, and more. As we join together in fasting and intercession, we'll see victory in the critical issues of our day--and we'll awaken the nations for Christ. Global revival and transformation is imminent. Will you answer the call?

The Missionary Movement in Christian History - Studies in the Transmission of Faith (Paperback): Andrew F. Walls The Missionary Movement in Christian History - Studies in the Transmission of Faith (Paperback)
Andrew F. Walls
R657 R521 Discovery Miles 5 210 Save R136 (21%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book brings together lectures and articles by the renowned historian of world Christianity, making them available, many for the first time, to scholars and students of world mission. While examining the many aspects that have characterized mission, indigenous Christianity, and colonialism in modern Africa, The Missionary Movement in Christian History has a far broader reach. Essays such as "The Gospel as the Prisoner and Liberator of Culture" reveal the paradoxes of the Christian movement as a whole in discussing how different primitive Mediterranean Christianity is from early Catholicism, from Celtic monasticism, from Reformation Protestantism, and from Nigerian Spirit Christianity. Andrew Walls shows how the central question for Christianity has always been one of identity in many different forms, a phenomenon revealed at each stage of its history by the missionary movement. What this means for theology, however, has hardly been explored. This is the subtext of Walls' work, providing extraordinary insights and successful counters to secular critiques of world Christianity.

R678 Discovery Miles 6 780 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

"He is wise; he has something to say. Let us call him 'A-tse-nu-sti, ' the messenger." This is the story of Reverend Samuel Austin Worcester (1798-1859), "messenger" and missionary to the Cherokees from 1825 to 1859 under the auspices of the American Board of Foreign Missions (Congregational). One of Worcester's earliest accomplishments was to set Sequoyah's alphabet in type so that he and Elias Boudinot could print the bilingual "Cherokee Phoenix." After removal to Indian Territory, he helped establish the "Cherokee Advocate," edited by William Ross, and issued almanacs, gospels, hymnals, bibles, and other books in the Cherokee, Creek, and Choctaw languages. He served the Cherokee in numerous roles, including those of preacher, teacher, postmaster, legal advisor, doctor, and organizer of temperance societies. His story is the Cherokee story, and in the foreword to this new edition, William L. Anderson discusses Worcester's life among the Cherokee.

Emerging Evangelicals - Faith, Modernity, and the Desire for Authenticity (Paperback): James S. Bielo Emerging Evangelicals - Faith, Modernity, and the Desire for Authenticity (Paperback)
James S. Bielo
R636 R539 Discovery Miles 5 390 Save R97 (15%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The Emerging Church movement developed in the mid-1990s among primarily white, urban, middle-class pastors and laity who were disenchanted with America's conservative Evangelical sub-culture. It is a response to the increasing divide between conservative Evangelicals and concerned critics who strongly oppose what they consider overly slick, corporate, and consumerist versions of faith. A core feature of their response is a challenge to traditional congregational models, often focusing on new church plants and creating networks of related house churches. Drawing on three years of ethnographic fieldwork, James S. Bielo explores the impact of the Emerging Church movement on American Evangelicals. He combines ethnographic analysis with discussions of the movement's history, discursive contours, defining practices, cultural logics, and contentious interactions with conservative Evangelical critics to rethink the boundaries of "Evangelical" as a category. Ultimately, Bielo makes a novel contribution to our understanding of the important changes at work among American Protestants, and illuminates how Emerging Evangelicals interact with the cultural conditions of modernity, late modernity, and visions of "postmodern" Christianity.

Prophetic Dialogue - Reflections on Christian Mission Today (Paperback): Stephen Bevans, Roger P. Schroeder Prophetic Dialogue - Reflections on Christian Mission Today (Paperback)

R836 R645 Discovery Miles 6 450 Save R191 (23%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

A collection of essays that demonstrates that to be effective in the twenty-first century, mission must be prophetic as it encounters other cultures and religious traditions.

"When we speak as mission as dialogue, then, we are about as far away from imagining mission as 'conquering the world for Christ' and missionaries as 'marines of the Catholic Church' as we probably can get. There has indeed been a radical shift, both in the world in which the church does mission and within the church's own consciousness of the goodness and even holiness of that world." These words from one of the essays in this superb collection clearly demonstrate the changing of mission today.

In this volume, Fathers Bevans and Schroeder address a primary challenge faced by Christians missioners today: How can they bring the Christian tradition to interact respectfully and effectively with members of other cultures and traditions from around the globe and still be prophetic?

The burgeoning missional church movement is a sign that believers are increasingly feeling the call to impact their communities, which is a good thing. But, says Alan J. Roxburgh, these conversations still prioritize church success over mission--how can being missional grow my church? But to focus on such questions misses the point.
In "Missional," Roxburgh calls Christians to reenter their neighborhoods and communities to discover what the Spirit is doing there--to start with God's mission. He then encourages readers to shape their local churches around that mission. With inspiring true stories and a solid biblical base, "Missional" is a book that will change lives and communities as its message is lived out.
