Book Description :

Free. Unearned. A gift. God's acceptance comes with no strings attached as you trust in His Son, Jesus. This is the whole gospel. But for 2000 years, Christians-including the first-century Galatians-have often believed they must add performance requirements to the gospel in order to truly earn God's approval. Listen in as the apostle Paul blows the lid off this selfdeception by explaining...: why the Good News becomes bad news when you mix it with rules, how to sniff out people who are promoting a false, "rules-added" gospel, why adding requirements to God's grace actually subtracts from your enjoying Christ, why trust is the only thing needed to receive God's grace and live in it day to day, Galatians shows you that life in God's Spirit, through His grace, is still His plan for freedom-so you can live out your full potential as His child.

Book Description :

You may probably be wondering why another book on leadership training has been published. It is true you may have read or even written hundreds of books on leadership training. But this book is unique. It is not like any other book you may have read or written! Other books write about the need for leadership training and offer the same old courses which have been in use for years. Yesterday’s methods may not always produce the results they used to. The methods of yesterday may not always accommodate all the generations living in the world today. This book discusses the benefits of leadership training and suggests nine areas of training which can comfortably benefit the premodern, modern, and the postmodern mindsets. Some people in this generation may be premodern, modern, or postmodern due to various reasons. Probably they were born during the time when those generations were in existence, or probably they have been shaped into those generations by the education system or by influence of others from across the world due to the ease of communication made possible by the internet. This book first discusses the general views held by people concerning whether training of Christian leaders is important or not. Some few people feel that it is not important because the Holy Spirit is their only teacher! Majority of people acknowledge the work of the Holy Spirit but believe that training is important and can make leaders more effective. The Holy Spirit uses people to accomplish his desire to have others trained. Second, the book discusses the benefits of leadership training which affirm the need to have leaders trained for God’s own glory. Finally, the book discusses nine areas of training which have been tested and found to be effective in equipping Christian leaders for more successful work of ministry and leadership in the church and its organizations.

Book Description :

Since its inception around 1970, the study of New Religious Movements (NRMs) has evolved into an established multidisciplinary field. At the same time, both the movements and the scholars who study them have been the subjects of intense controversy. In this volume, a group of senior NRM scholars who have been instrumental in the development of the field will offer pivotal essays that present the basics of NRM scholarship along with guidance for teachers on classroom use. The book is organized topically around subjects that are both central to the study of NRMs and likely to be useful to non-specialists. Part I contains examinations of the definitional boundaries of the area of study, varying disciplinary perspectives on NRMs, unique methodological/ethical problems encountered in the study of NRMs, and the controversies that have confronted scholars studying NRMs and the movements themselves. Part II examines a series of topics central to teaching about NRMs: the larger sociocultural significance of the movements, their distinctive symbolic and organizational features, the interrelated processes of joining and leaving NRMs, the organization of gender roles in NRMs, media and popular culture portrayals of the movements, the occurrence of corruption and abuse within movements, and violence by and against NRMs. Part III provides informational resources for teaching about NRMs, which are particularly important in a field where knowing the biases of sources is crucial. With its interdisciplinary approach, the volume provides comprehensive, accessible information and perspectives on NRMs. It is an invaluable guide for instructors navigating this scholarly minefield.

This final book in the series focuses on the atheistic or humanistic type of religions. It would be one of the most valuable for the church in the Western World where anti-god and pro-evolution religions are beginning to explode, for it was written to refute those religions and show how they fail. Unlike most books on world religions, this title dives into the secular humanistic religions. The book starts with God’s Word as the absolute authority. In doing so, God becomes our guide to refute false religions. Humanistic religions are all around us and we need to be able to spot their tenets and oppose them instead of allowing them to subtly infiltrate our Christianity and undermine us from withinWe need to know how to refute these humanistic religionsWe need to know how to effectively present the gospel to people who have been deceived by humanistic religions

Book Description :

Religions in today’s culture seem to be multiplying. Have you ever wondered why certain religions believe and practice what they do? Or how they view the Bible? This volume delves into these and other engaging questions, such as: How can a Christian witness to people in these religions? Do these other religions believe in creation and a Creator? How do we deal with these religions from a biblical authority perspective? Many religions and cults discussed in this first volume openly affirm that the Bible is true, but then something gets in their way. And there is a common factor every time—man’s fallible opinions. In one way or another the Bible gets demoted, reinterpreted, or completely ignored. Man’s ideas are used to throw the Bible’s clear teaching out the window while false teachings are promoted. This book is a must for laymen, church leaders, teachers, and students to understand the trends in our culture and around the world where certain religions dominate, helping you discern truth and guard your faith. When you understand a religion’s origins and teachings, you are in a better position to know how to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ as you take the good news to those in false religions.

Book Description :

It was the year of the Lord 1685. With only the clothes they were dressed in, their Bibles hidden in loaves of hollowed bread, they fled before the French Catholic authorities. “Die or be Catholic!” were shouted by the heartless “dragonnades”— with emphasis on the “die.” And when the second word followed, the Protestant Huguenot victims were already struck—dying, brutally slaughtered in the name of Catholic Christianity! This terror swept through Paris, continued through the rest of France, after King Louis XIV revoked the Edict of Nantes proclaimed by his grandfather, King Henry the Great of France. This bloody highway in the name of Christianity took thousands of Huguenots’ lives and hundreds of thousands fled their country of birth to find refuge in America, other parts of Europe, and also South Africa. In South Africa, they started anew, with their God (of Israel) and their Bibles, and the home and the freedom to serve their God they so longed for and found would become a nightmare again. With their blood, they paid for freedom, twice; and today they are still dying, slaughtered by the criminal elements that rule in South Africa, unfortunately, in the entire Africa.

Book Description :

From Biblical stories of Joseph interpreting Pharoh’s dreams in Egypt to prayers against bad dreams in the Hindu Rg Veda, cultures all over the world have seen their dreams first and foremost as religiously meaningful experiences. In this widely shared view, dreams are a powerful medium of transpersonal guidance offering the opportunity to communicate with sacred beings, gain valuable wisdom and power, heal suffering, and explore new realms of existence. Conversely, the world’s religious and spiritual traditions provide the best source of historical information about the broad patterns of human dream life Dreaming in the World’s Religions provides an authoritative and engaging one-volume resource for the study of dreaming and religion. It tells the story of how dreaming has shaped the religious history of humankind, from the Upanishads of Hinduism to the Qur’an of Islam, from the conception dream of Buddhas mother to the sexually tempting nightmares of St. Augustine, from the Ojibwa vision quest to Australian Aboriginal journeys in the Dreamtime. Bringing his background in psychology to bear, Kelly Bulkeley incorporates an accessible consideration of cognitive neuroscience and evolutionary psychology into this fascinating overview. Dreaming in the World’s Religions offers a carefully researched, accessibly written portrait of dreaming as a powerful, unpredictable, often iconoclastic force in human religious life.
