REFLECT: Becoming Yourself by Mirroring the Greatest Person in History
What if we worshiped Jesus? Not the imaginary Jesus invented by televangelism, consumerism, fundamentalism, mysticism, or some political ism, but the actual Jesus we meet in the New Testament? How can he, unlike any other object of worship, enlarge our intellects, our emotions, our actions, our relationships, our imaginations, our whole selves? Drawing from science, literature, art, theology, history, music, philosophy, pop culture, and more, Thaddeus J. Williams paints a fresh and inspiring vision of how we become most truly ourselves by mirroring the Greatest Person in History.
Jesus and the Future: Understanding What He Taught about the End Times
Jesus was a prophet who often spoke about future events. The challenge lies in determining when he was speaking about near instead of distant future events.
In Jesus and the Future, the authors examine everything Jesus said about future events as recorded in the four canonical Gospels. This includes the famous Olivet Discourse, along with many other parables and sayings. The authors situate Jesus’ teaching in its original literary and first-century Jewish and Greco-Roman context.
Truth on Its Head: Unusual Wisdom in the Paradoxes of the Bible
According to British essayist G. K. Chesterton, a paradox is “truth standing on its head to gain attention.” Not only does a paradox call attention to itself, but it also provides unusual wisdom. Because we live in an upside-down kingdom, biblical paradoxes explain how something seemingly on its head is actually right-side up. In Truth on Its Head, well-known author Warren Wiersbe helps Christians navigate skillfully through life. He does so by studying 15 paradoxes of the Bible, showing how they teach us to make sense of the many mysteries of life.
When Suffering Is Redemptive: Stories of How Anguish and Pain Accomplish God’s Mission
The eight stories of this book reveal how ordinary Christians have allowed pain not only to mold their character but also to open up new ministry opportunities. Though the stories do not seek to explain the why of suffering, they present creative ways that God redeems suffering both in the life of the individual and in the Christian community. The authors are transparent with their struggles and honest in their questions, yet they have not lost sight of Christ and His purpose for their lives. Though the natural reaction to suffering is anger, confusion, and feelings of alienation from God, the eventual end is redemption.
