Finding the Way Wipf and Stock
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Description: Life is a complex journey, and each of us must find our own way. But sometimes we take a wrong turn and get lost. When that happens we have to backtrack and begin again. We are living in a time when many young adults who dropped out of church in high school or college are seeking to reconnect with their faith, while older Christians are feeling a need to turn their own lives around. Finding the Way offers help for all Christians who are hungry for an intimate relationship with God and want to restart their spiritual journey on a path they can see clearly, explain simply, follow faithfully, and share with others. This is a book for those who want to practice Christian faith as a way of life, not merely accept it as a system of doctrine. We are not lost in a trackless, twenty-first-century spiritual wasteland. There is a Way that can lead us home to God. We have companions on the journey, and the Good Shepherd himself will guide us. Finding the Way calls us to brave the steep, upward journey with Jesus--to rededicate ourselves boldly to the imitation of Christ. Endorsements: ""In his own ministry, Bruce McNab has a passion for inviting and reaching young adults in the name of Christ. In Finding the Way, Bruce helps the church find its way back to a generation we have all too often ignored. More importantly, he offers a direct, straightforward, helpful way for all of us to find . . . a vibrant relationship with Christ and Christ's people, the church. Whether used for individual spiritual growth, or for a group seeking the Way together, this book is a wonderful, wise gift to all of us."" --William H. Willimon, Professor of Christian Ministry, Duke Divinity School ""The monks who influenced me most many years ago summed up the Way as a response to 'Come home! All is forgiven.' Bruce McNab shows us the Way. This book is accessible, generous, and timely, grounded in the tradition and filtered through a lifetime of experience. A wonderful way to get back on track."" --Alan W. Jones, Dean Emeritus, Grace Cathedral About the Contributor(s): Bruce McNab has been an Episcopal priest since 1972. Before retiring in 2011, he was rector of five different parishes and served as a conference speaker and retreat leader for parishes, dioceses, and organizations in the USA and overseas. He holds degrees from Austin College, Princeton University, and the General Theological Seminary. The author of Let Your Light Shine, Bruce McNab now lives in Bozeman, MT, with his wife, Joan.
Consolations of Philosophy Penguin
Alain de Botton, best-selling author of How Proust can Change Your Life, has set six of the finest minds in the history of philosophy to work on the problems of everyday life. Here then are Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche on some of the things that bother us all; lack of money, the pain of love, inadequacy, anxiety, the fear of failure and the pressure to conform.
Emerging Dictionary for the Gospel and Culture Resource Publications (CA)
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Description: What? Another dictionary? Or really an anthology, organized alphabetically by virtue of a particular conversation. The idea for this project emerged from a free-for-all conversation around breakfast one morning. We had invoked any number of authors living and dead, and had spanned spirituality, leadership, education, philosophy, ecclesiology, and even cosmology. We heard from Augustine and Barth, Jim Wallis and Dallas Willard, referencing chaos and culture. Someone had even shared an ancient koan! Why . . . that's it. Why not a roving, eclectic dictionary that is both ridiculously current and particular, and at the same time broadly inclusive, reaching back to Augustine and St. Benedict. Why not write the ABCs of the emerging and missional conversation: this is Wishful Thinking (Buechner) meets A for Abductive (McLaren and Sweet) meets Soul Survivor (Yancey). And maybe there is just a touch of Brian McLaren in A Generous Orthodoxy. The rules are simple: no more than five words per letter; names and personalities can occur on either side, attached to a definition or as referencing a word or concept, and while the overall interest is theological, the focus is life and mission, not theory. Leave your luggage behind, climb aboard and join a journey of exploration that will enrich, challenge, and bring a smile to your face. Endorsements: ""There is a growing need for a guide that can help Christians find our way through the new frontiers of the post-evangelical landscape. The rate of theological, cultural, and church developments is breath-taking. Even the best read among us are finding it hard to keep up. An Emerging Dictionary for Gospel and Culture meets this need. Creatively, with much skill and breadth of knowledge, Leonard Hjalmarson has provided a tool to help us manage the complexity of the many new conversations surrounding what God is doing in these exciting days. I highly recommend it.""_ --David Fitch author of The Great Giveaway ""Len Hjalmarson is one smart cookie: he somehow manages to gather, interpret, and file many of the key ideas that are impacting church and culture in our time. Here he articulates them, and we get the benefit of his encyclopedic mind. A blessing!"" --Alan Hirsch author of Untamed: Reactivating a Missional Form of Discipleship ""If our Forge team needs information about a missional topic, we just ask Len. He is a walking encyclopedia about what is going on in the missional or emerging church movements and about most of what has been written. Len is also a great writer. He communicates succinctly and with clarity what others struggle to articulate. Perhaps the major criticism I have of this book is that it is not entitled Volume 1. I am sure there is more to come. This is a helpful resource. --Cam Roxburgh National Director, Forge Missional Training Network ""Hjalmarson has done what many have wanted to do but couldn't-made sense of the multiple threads of discussion that have been taking place around the missional church. Using the idea of a dictionary is brilliant. He takes the varied conversations and with gentle and perceptive skill draws them together into a coherent whole. Thoughtfulness and care is on every page. He takes the varied themes and draws them into a passionate dialogue on what it means to engage the culture with a relevant and transformational gospel. This was a needed tool that provides content and a frame to the conversation. A must for everyone who seeks to be part of the conversation and a follower of Jesus in this time."" --Gary V. Nelson author of Borderland Churches: A Congregation's Introduction to Missional Living ""In the beginning God spo

Description: ABSURD When meaning breaks down, consciousness awakens. AUTHENTIC Where we fall short, grace completes. ANGER In injury, compassion heals.

From spiritual homelessness to unconditional at-homeness, you are invited to experience with the author an altering journey of self-discovery. Welcome home! Endorsements: ""In his nakedness and vulnerability, [Llenado] was given a fresh, almost wordless experience of Reality. He awakened to the reality of his profound inter-connectedness with everything from the vastness of the cosmos to the suffering of the people around him. He awakened to a compassion for himself and others that had not been given room to grow. And he awakened to a sense of the whole cosmos as sacred, the dwelling place of Spirit, one of the most widespread spiritual themes of our age. I have witnessed others make this same journey; indeed, I have been led along it myself. And I believe countless thousands of others are on a similar path."" -from the Foreword by Robert Corin Morris Founder, Interweave Center for Wholistic Living About the Contributor(s): Ferdinand Llenado has been a pastor of the United Methodist Church for twenty years. While in ministry, he also pursued further studies and earned a Master of Divinity, a Master of Sacred Theology, and a Doctor of Missiology degree.
