Preaching God's Transforming Justice - A Lectionary Commentary, Year B (Hardcover): Ronald J Allen, Dale P. Andrews, Dawn... Preaching God's Transforming Justice - A Lectionary Commentary, Year B (Hardcover)

This unique commentary is the first to help the preacher identify and reflect theologically and ethically on the social implications of the biblical readings in the Revised Common Lectionary. In addition to providing commentary for each day in the lectionary calendar, this series introduces twenty-two Holy Days for Justice. These days are intended to enlarge the church's awareness of God's call for justice and of the many ways that call comes to the church and world today. The days include Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Earth Day, World AIDS Day, International Women's Day, Cesar Chavez Day, Yom HaShoah, and Juneteenth.

For each of the lectionary days and Holy Days for Justice there is an essay that helps the preacher integrate a variety of social justice concerns (including racial/ethnic issues, sexism, classism, ecology, and violence) into their preaching. The contributors are a diverse group of homileticians, pastors, biblical scholars, theologians, and social activists.

Preaching the Old Testament - A Lectionary Commentary (Hardcover, Annotated edition): Ronald J Allen, Clark M. Williamson Preaching the Old Testament - A Lectionary Commentary (Hardcover, Annotated edition)
Ronald J Allen, Clark M. Williamson
R934 R724 Discovery Miles 7 240 Save R210 (22%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In this third and concluding volume of their lectionary commentary collection ("Preaching the Gospels without Blaming the Jews" and "Preaching the Letters without Dismissing the Law"), Ronald Allen and Clark Williamson encourage the church and its preachers to rediscover the Old Testament as a vibrant wellspring of Christian faith and life. Preachers often neglect the Old Testament, misrepresent it, or regard its theological content as superseded by Jesus and the New Testament, Allen and Williamson claim. The authors help preachers avoid these traps by explaining how a text was understood before the Common Era without any reference to Jesus or Christian doctrine, mentioning representative New Testament passages or themes that are informed by the older material, and commenting briefly on the relationship between the lections in those cases when readings from the Old Testament are paired with readings from the New Testament.

Are you ready to stop playing church and begin living an authentic life in Christ?

Do you put on a happy face to disguise feelings of sadness, loneliness, or depression? You're not alone. In fact, nearly half of all women say they are still searching for one authentic friendship in their church body.

Best-selling author Dannah Gresh knows the transforming power that will turn your life into a glorious adventure with God. In this book, she reveals the secret of the Lord, gently leading you on a journey from an "I'm so exhausted, depleted, and empty" existence to a life that exceeds your wildest dreams . . . that fills you up to the fullest.

Move beyond the masks of simulated perfection so often put on for Sunday morning, and discover true intimacy with God and with other believers. The Secret of the Lord takes you to a place where the lonely find intimacy, the distressed find joy, and God's love revives entire communities.

The lectionary is a helpful homiletical tool. But there are times when lectionary preaching does not meet a congregation s needs. Sermon Treks offers preachers and students an invigorating selection of new sermon-planning trails, for use as sermon series or for single sermons. The options presented here are practical and theologically responsible. Some are rooted in ancient forms of proclamation; others are new. All provide clear but creative guidance for the preacher, and a path that will lead to more effective sermons."

A faith should be a living thing. What we believe necessarily evolves in response to insights into the Bible, to questions or doubts we face, to changes in life circumstances, or to things that happen in the larger world. Nevertheless, Christians often find it helpful to identify what they can most fully believe at a given moment. Such clarity empowers the present and leads us toward the future. Such moments can also be mile markers by which we measure our faith journey.

In each chapter the first section lists the most common ways a certain topic is understood in the Bible. The second section identifies important ways the church has interpreted that topic since the Bible's inception. The third section introduces contemporary perspectives. With that foundational knowledge, readers can make a judgment as to which viewpoints seem more or less persuasive to them personally. Finally, each chapter ends with questions for reflection for individuals or small groups.

The Life of Jesus for Today (Paperback, New): Ronald J Allen The Life of Jesus for Today (Paperback, New)
Ronald J Allen
R345 R279 Discovery Miles 2 790 Save R66 (19%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In this new volume in the popular For Today series, Ron Allen provides an exciting introduction to the life of Jesus and an engaging discussion of what Jesus' life means for modern-day believers. Setting Jesus in his ancient context, Allen examines many stories about Jesus' life and shows how these different stories relate to one another to express the core of Jesus' message--a message that, as Allen helpfully shows, is of central importance for believers today.

The For Today series was designed to provide reliable and accessible resources for the study and real life application of important biblical texts, theological documents, and Christian practices. The emphasis of the series is not only on the realization and appreciation of what these subjects have meant in the past, but also on their value in the present--"for today." Thought-provoking questions are included at the end of each chapter, making the books ideal for personal study and group use.

He includes sample sermons and provides a wealth of valuable informatin in an appendix and bibliography.
