📒Thriving In Babylon ✍ Larry Osborne
📝Thriving in Babylon Book Synopsis : Meet a man forced to live in a fast changing and godless society. He faced fears about the future, concern for his safety, and the discouragement of world that seemed to be falling apart at warp speed. Sound familiar? His name was Daniel, and with the power of hope, humility, and wisdom, he not only thrived, he changed an empire while he was at it. Though he lived thousands of years ago, he has a much to teach us today. Even in Babylon, God Is in Control In Thriving in Babylon, Larry Osborne explores the “adult” story of Daniel to help us not only survive – but actually thrive in an increasingly godless culture. Here Pastor Osborne looks at: - Why panic and despair are never from God- What true optimism looks like- How humility disarms even our greatest of enemies- Why respect causes even those who will have nothing to do with God to listen- How wisdom can snatch victory out of the jaws of defeat For those who know Jesus and understand the full implications of the cross, the resurrection, and the promises of Jesus, everything changes – not only in us, but also in our world.
📒Thriving In Babylon ✍ David B. Capes
📝Thriving in Babylon Book Synopsis : This delightfully multifaceted volume, comprised of thoughtful essays by an esteemed array of cultural critics, probes the intersection of Christian faith and culture to honor the memory of A. J. "Chip" Conyers, a remarkably ecumenical Christian scholar and cultural "warrior" whose premature death in 2004 cut short a remarkable career in teaching and writing. As those who knew him can attest, Conyers lived his life at the intersection of Christian theology and cultural concern with a singular blend of astuteness, gracefulness, and Christian conviction. This festschrift, as esteemed theologian and Conyers's mentor Jurgen Moltmann indicates in the foreword, is intended to mirror Conyers's own commitment to incisive cultural criticism and theological faithfulness in the mold of the "great tradition." This is no small achievement even for so venerable a cast of scholars as the contributors to this volume, as Conyers crossed interdisciplinary boundaries--in a day of escalating hyper-specialization--with the greatest of ease. He was comfortable discussing contemporary church life or the christological controversy of the patristic era, Heideggerian hermeneutics or human dignity and the imago Dei, faith and the Enlightenment or the fatherhood of God, Catholic "substance" or Protestant reform. Yet Conyers always did this through the lens of historic Christian orthodoxy. Though he was a most incisive student of culture, in a most refreshing way he steered clear of being co-opted by the currents of culture. Neither retreating into pious devotionalism nor opting for the theologically unreflective activism that has become so chic in our post-consensus climate, he embodied a theological perspective that blends responsible cultural engagement with eschatological hope. The reader is sure to encounter the same blend in this festschrift, and to come away both challenged and edified toward fulfilling the message and hope of Conyers' life and work: to faithfully thrive in Babylon.
📒Berkouwer And Catholicism ✍ Eduardo Echeverria
📝Berkouwer and Catholicism Book Synopsis : Berkouwer and Catholicism: Disputed Questions offers an in-depth analysis and critique of Berkouwer's theology, particulary his evolving relationship with Catholicism in light of Vatican II and the nouvelle théologie.
📒Jesus King Of Edessa ✍ Ralph Ellis
📝Jesus King of Edessa Book Synopsis : This is the book that the Catholic Church has been dreading for the last 1700 years. This is the book that will end Christianity as we know it. And this is not advertising hyperbole, this really is the end of the Christian fairytale. We now know who Jesus was. Visit his city, see the ruins of his citadel, gaze upon his statue, handle his coins. In reality, Jesus was a son of King Abgarus of Edessa, a king with a small realm, a large treasury, and even bigger ambitions. Thus Jesus' true history undermines much of the biblical fairystory that the gospel authors crafted, and so Christianity will never be the same again. The jacket image shows Jesus wearing his Crown of Thorns, the ceremonial crown of the Edessan monarchy. We suggest that readers start with 'Cleopatra to Christ' and then 'King Jesus'. The wait before arriving at the last episode in the trilogy will be worthwhile, for if a book could be valued on its 'eureka moments' then this final book would be priceless.

📒Between Pacifism And Jihad ✍ J. Daryl Charles
📝Between Pacifism and Jihad Book Synopsis : Pacifism. Jihad. Militarism. Are these our only alternatives for dealing with global injustice today? J. Daryl Charles leads us to reconsider a Christian view of the use of force to maintain or reestablish justice. He shows how love for a neighbor can warrant the just use of force. Reviewing and updating the widely recognized but not necessarily well-understood just-war teaching of the church through the ages, Charles shows how it captures many of the concerns of the pacifist position while deliberately avoiding, on the other side, the excesses of jihad and militarism. Aware of our contemporary global situation, Charles addresses the unique challenges of dealing with international terrorism.
📒Slow To Judge ✍ David Capes
📝Slow to Judge Book Synopsis : God invites us to judge and to help correct wrongs from a place of understanding. Sometimes we pre-judge a person based on our own biases and superficial experiences. We stifle dialog before the conversation even begins. If all we know is our own faith, and we never put it side-by-side with what others believe, our spiritual growth and commitments can be easily stunted. By truly listening and learning from those with different beliefs, we can broaden and deepen our kingdom commitments. It is possible to stand up for Jesus, to articulate our faith clearly as witnesses, and to defend our faith effectively, while at the same time not being perceived as judgmental. Christians need to be faithful witnesses to God who are willing to listen to people with drastically different stories. In those exchanges, when we suspend judgment and truly listen, we will find truth and beauty and goodness in some of the most unexpected places. We will also find that, if we truly listen, we may be given a chance to speak. Features include: Help for interfaith and intercultural dialog Thought-provoking questions for spiritual conversation or reflection

📒Better Than Babylon ✍ Thomas G. Casey
📝Better Than Babylon Book Synopsis : What is Babylon? Babylon is that which blocks our access to the door of possibility, that which impoverishes. Babylon is the part of Western culture that imprisons us with its seductive images of false happiness and fulfillment. Better Than Babylon invites us to break free of our prisons. It urges us to reject the subtle enslavement that blinds us to what's important, the superficial images that prevent us from touching the soul of things. By engaging with key issues in our culture-women, family, education, work, the environment, war and peace, author Thomas Casey calls upon us to break through the door and go beyond our habitual ways of looking at them. This book is an invitation to go beyond Babylon: "Babylon, comfortable as it may be, need not be our lasting prison. The world of possibility is much vaster than we dared imagine. This truth can set us free" (from the Introduction). God has bigger hopes for us than Babylon could ever entertain. Book jacket.
📒By The Rivers Of Babylon ✍ Roger F. Cook
📝By the Rivers of Babylon Book Synopsis : German poet Heinrich Heine was bedridden with a debilitating illness for the last eight years of his life, during which time he reassessed many of his previous views. This text examines the changes in his thinking during that period and shows how these changes are reflected in his later poetry.
📝Babylon Book Synopsis : Babylon will once again become a thriving city. In ancient times it was known for idolatrous worship, immoral living and ruthless giants. In the future this city will have these same dark features. Bible prophecies indicate future giants will get their start in Babylon. Some of these giants will play major roles in these last days. An end time leader called the "Mouth" will be a non-human ruler who will rule from Babylon. He will eventually become a world-wide ruler and cause great devastation. Another non-human ruler called the "Harlot" will also be associated with Babylon. She will corrupt the earth with her immoral activity. Often this "Harlot" is mistaken for the actual city of Babylon or a religious system but when digging deeper into God's Word, Scripture reveals differently. It's important that we know who these end time leaders are as the Bible depicts them so that we will know what to watch for in terms of their future appearance. In her book Babylon: The Fallen Reona Martin has stayed close to the Scriptures to present to you a Biblical sound study of future Babylon.
