Thérèse of Lisieux is one of the most popular saints of our time and for good reason. As Pope St. John Paul II wrote when declaring her a doctor of the Church, Thérèse's little way is nothing other than the gospel way of holiness for all. In this faith-sharing guide, Br. Joseph Schmidt helps readers understand Thérèse's message through the Scripture passages that illuminated her insights about God and his merciful love. Each of the seven sessions features one or more passages from Scripture as well as excerpts from Thérèse's writings that allude to those passages. Thoughtful commentary and questions for reflection follow, enabling us to discover how our own relationship with the Lord might be transformed by the Little Way of St. Therese. Suitable for both individuals and small groups.
`The central miracle asserted by Christians is the Incarnation. They say that God became Man. Every other miracle prepares the way for this, or results from this.' This is the key statement of `Miracles', in which C. S. Lewis shows that a Christian must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of the unique personal involvement of God in his creation. Using his characteristic lucidity and wit to develop his argument, Lewis challenges the rationalists, agnostics and deists on their own grounds and provides a poetic and joyous affirmation that miracles really do occur in our everyday lives.
Where Are We on the Prophetic Timetable?
When Jesus's disciples asked for His views on the end times, He pointed to the "days of Noah" as the key to unlock the timing of "the coming of the Son of Man." But what exactly did He mean by that? Floodgates unravels precisely what happened in the Flood of Noah and explains why this important biblical event is so analogous to our day. By tracking humanity's moral slide during Noah's generation, we roll back the curtain on our own times in remarkable ways. We also discover a clear biblical paradigm for determining where we are on the prophetic timetable, based on the actual teachings of Jesus and the apostles. After reading Floodgates, you will know if the countdown to final judgment has already begun.
Reflecting careful research and keen biblical insights, Floodgates reveals God's righteous dealings with humanity and the fate that soon awaits those now in open rebellion against Him. Author David Parsons lays the axe to the root of this moral rebellion, found in the collapsing claims of Darwinian evolution. He also identifies God's "end game"--His specific strategy--for how He wants to bring this present age to a close. As we draw nearer to that day, Jesus calls every believer to be salt and light in the world, warning people of the coming judgment and showing the way to eternal life in Him. This book is a powerful reminder that everyone has a choice to make concerning their ultimate destiny--and time is growing short.
Ecclesiastes is for people who have their doubts about God, but can't stop thinking about him. The author of Ecclesiastes had his doubts, too, and these have enabled him to speak to skeptics as well as believers down through the centuries. Ecclesiastes is a book rich in literary artistry and multi-layered depths of spiritual meaning. Philip G. Ryken explores this wonderful Old Testament book, and reminds us again of the need to trust God with the questions, even when we do not have all the answers.
We live in an age of scepticism. Our society places such faith in empirical reason, historical progress, and heartfelt emotion that it's easy to wonder: why should anyone believe in Christianity? What role can faith and religion play in our modern lives? In this thoughtful and inspiring book, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller invites sceptics to consider that Christianity is as relevant now as ever. As human beings, we cannot live without meaning, satisfaction, freedom, identity, justice and hope - and Christianity provides us with unsurpassed resources to meet all these needs. Written for both sceptic and believer, Making Sense of God shines a light on the profound value and importance of Christianity in our lives.
What does it mean to believe in God? Can God possibly be almighty in the midst of so much evil and disaster? How am I to understand the meaning of Jesus Christ's ministry and resurrection? To what purpose is the church called? And what does it really mean to follow Christ in today's broken world? Tying together the answers to all of these questions and addressing perplexities such as the possibility of miracles and how to read the Bible, Rowan Williams demonstrates that each of the basic tenets of Christian faith flows from one fundamental belief: that God is completely worthy of our trust. With vast knowledge of Christian history and theology and characteristically elegant prose, Rowan Williams is a superb and compassionate guide through the richness and depth of Christian faith.
This collection provides a composite picture of Erasmus' ecclesiology: his concept of piety; his emphasis on concord and consensus; his views on modern doctrinalism; and, the significance of "evangelical prudence".
One of the great classics of prison literature, Letters and Papers from Prison effectively serves as the last will and testament of the Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, executed by the Nazis after incarceration in Tegel Prison. Acute and subtle, warm and perceptive, yet also profoundly moving, the documents collectively tell a very human story of loss, of courage, and of hope. Bonhoeffer's story continues to be as vitally relevant, as politically prophetic, and as theologically significant, as it always has. This edition includes a new introduction by Samuel Wells

In the 16th century, Erasmus was one of the most celebrated figures in Europe--a man of such vast learning that both royalty and universities petitioned for his services. In this very readable biography, a noted scholar traces Erasmus's youth, his years as an itinerant scholar, sojourns in England, France, Switzerland, and Italy, friendship with Sir Thomas More, and disputes with Martin Luther. The author also probes Erasmus's mind and character and discusses his writings, including In Praise of Folly and his great translation of the New Testament.
