The human Jesus transformed, liberated, and empowered person after person, changing their lives forever. It's so simple, this Way of following Jesus. While simple doesn't mean "easy," it is a path worth following and a challenge worth pursuing, especially if we let the Spirit of the Living Christ lead us, one step at a time, one day at a time. That's not easy, either. Meeting Jesus Today, ideal for both individual study and small groups, is intended to be used as a workbook. It is designed to move readers from studying the Scriptures and ideas within the chapters to recording their journey with the Living Christ. Jeanie Miley calls this process of interacting with the biblical record and our thoughts, experiences, and yearnings soulwork, and she believes this process is one of the ways the Living Christ works to do what Jesus did: healing, transforming, liberating, and empowering us as we give ourselves to the process. Readers may delve deeper into Scripture with reflection questions in several categories-Exploring the Scriptures, What About You?, and For Your Eyes Only-questions that are intended to move the ideas in each section to a deeper level where you live in Christ and he lives in you.

Sitting Strong: Wrestling with the Ornery God, by bestselling author Jeanie Miley, suggests that when life knocks the props out from under you, it is possible to gather up your agony and wrestle with it in the presence of the God who may feel strangely absent. This book is not about being strong. Rather, taking the struggles and triumphs of Job as its guide, this book is about that terrible time when all you can do is stumble onto the ash heap of suffering and simply sit.
For years, Jeanie Miley followed God by practicing spiritual disciplines and experienced enormous benefit from incorporating those practices in her daily life. In "Dance Lessons: Moving to the Beat of God's Heart," Miley suggests that instead of seeing a relationship with God as a duty to be fulfilled or a defense against trouble, what might happen if we see that relationship as alive and deep, life-giving and intimate? What if living the spiritual life is primarily about the experience of a vital and personal love relationship with God? "What if we see our relationship with God as a dance?" In this book about the contemplative life, Jeanie Miley uses her experiences to explore the traditional contemplative practices that spiritual pilgrims have employed for centuries to facilitate their ability to move to the beat of God's heart in this sacred dance of life.
"Jeanie Miley is an authority on things spiritual and on what she calls the Joint Venture, because she knows the Author of Life and the Giver of Salvation and the Inspirer of our Souls and Lives. She is an authority on matters of the heart and our walk with God because she has prayed without ceasing and traveled the world from without and from within for truth. She has walked with many fellow pilgrims and has taken the wounds of her life-the wounds that we all have to a greater or lesser degree-and she has with conviction and honesty taken us to the scarred but redemptive hands of Jesus. She has shown us how grace leaks out of the brokenness of our lives, and that we not only need God but each other in the Joint Venture of grace. Reading this book is a feast. Come to the table and be fed." -From the Foreword, by James W. Nutter, Rector, Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church, Houston, Texas
Many of us absorbed the rules for being male or female from our families and the culture in which we grew to adulthood. We formed beliefs about a man's role and a woman's role based on what we observed and experienced; mostly, those beliefs had to do with what men and woman did rather than who they were. Our ideas about what constitutes "masculine" and "feminine," by now outdated and inadequate, have led to a precarious imbalance both in our inner lives and in our external lives of relating to men and women. The result? A gender war. In Joining Forces, Jeanie Miley explains that our deeply ingrained gender expectations have created an imbalance in our emotional and spiritual lives and have kept us from becoming our most authentic selves. Joining Forces will help readers discover the masculine and feminine characteristics that connect, unite, and restore us??????traits that men and women alike can and do express. By joining our masculine and feminine strengths, we restore our own souls, our creative energies, and our own true, essential natures.
Because it is sometimes challenging for today's Christians to move from the frenetic pace and noisy world of today's society and enter into the silence and stillness of contemplative praying, Jeanie Miley provides a way of using the psalms as a doorway into prayer. Reading the psalm indicated for each day's meditation and then reflecting on the day's reading, persons are invited to "pray the psalms" in a way that connects the ancient prayers with their own present-day experience. By moving back and forth between the psalm and your own experience in prayer, Ancient Psalms for Contemporary Pilgrims provides a process through which the Living God can lead you to a deeper reflection on your own life.
ChristHeart is a book of meditations based on thirty-four (34) events or teachings from the life of Jesus Christ. The reader is invited to enter more fully into the life of the human Jesus and to identify with the feelings and thoughts of Christ as he carried out his earthly ministry. Designed to facilitate contemplative prayer, the author encourages readers to imagine the responses of Jesus as he dealt with conflict, entered into friendship with the disciples and others, and healed people and taught them about a vital, personal, love relationship with God. The reader can enter into the experiences of Jesus by reading a selected scripture from the Gospels and one of the meditations, and then picturing the scene and identifying with the feelings and thoughts of Jesus in that scene. At the end of each meditation is a question to encourage reflection and a deepening of one's own understanding of how the life of Christ intersects with and transforms the reader's life. Miley has written seven mediations for each of the thirty-four (34) Gospel stories.
