Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The passion of Paul Lee for Jesus drove him to write John: Loving Jesus and Keeping His Word. Here is one of the most profound reflections on the Gospel of John in our time. Thoroughly researched and written in Lee’s distinct voice, this is a book I wish I had on my shelves fifty years ago, and provides the kind of insight that will reach preachers, scholars, students, and anyone who wishes to learn more about the living Christ for years to come. (Dr. James B. Mooneyhan, Clergy, Atlanta Area of the UMC) The Gospel of John becomes alive anew with the reading of this book. Dr. Lee has compiled a contextual interpretation of the Gospel in a way that informs casual readers and yet challenges serious scholars and seminary students. This is an invaluable resource in sermon preparation, Bible studies, Sunday school lessons, or daily devotions. This work is so extensive, yet very understandable that it should be included in every serious student of the Scriptures! I highly recommend this book. (Rev. Dr. Philip D. DeMore, Former District Superintendent of the UMC) This book is the labor of a lifetime, as Paul Lee shares the fruit of decades of living with the Gospel of John, and for persons committed to serious study of the Bible. The title itself is a challenge as the aim of every Christian. My prayer for potential readers is that they will experience Jesus as “Lord and Teacher,” love him more dearly, and keep his word more faithfully. (Maxie Dunnam, Former President of Asbury Seminary, now Minister at Large, Christ UMC, Memphis, TN) The Gospel of John continues to be an inexhaustible source of Christian faith and theology. Paul Lee has given us a fresh, clear and faithful reading of John, combining chapter by chapter overviews, detailed commentary, and insightful practical reflections on John’s implications for Christian life and witness. This book is an excellent resource for pastors, teachers and anyone who desires a deeper encounter with the Johannine biblical text in relation to the New Testament. (Rev. Dr. Don E. Saliers, Candler School of Theology, Emory University)

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Our Divine Parent traces the metaphorical theme of God’s burgeoning family that spans the entire Bible. The family of God is a place of being, belonging, and becoming; and relationship with the Triune God as Divine Parent is characteristic of value and dignity, provision and protection, transformation and maturation, purpose and calling. Not merely a series of events relegated to the past, the family of God is an ongoing, present phenomenon—a salvation-relationship into which God invites all peoples to be adopted, redeemed children of God.

This book was released on 2017-07-14 with total page 220 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Daughter Zion allegory represents a particular narrative articulation of the paradigm of bridal mysticism deriving from the Song of Songs, the core element of which is the quest of Daughter Zion for a worthy object of love. Examining medieval German religious writing (verse and prose) and Dutch prose works, Annette Volfing shows that this storyline provides an excellent springboard for investigating key aspects of medieval religious and literary culture. In particular, she argues, the allegory lends itself to an exploration of the medieval sense of self; of the scope of human agency within the mystical encounter; of the gendering of the religious subject; of conceptions of space and enclosure; and of fantasies of violence and aggression. Volfing suggests that Daughter Zion adaptations increasingly tended to empower the religious subject to seek a more immediate relationship with the divine and to embrace a wider range of emotions: the mediating personifications are gradually eliminated in favour of a model of religious experience in which the human subject engages directly with Christ. Overall, the development of the allegory from the twelfth to the fifteenth centuries marks the striving towards a greater sense of equality and affective reciprocity with the divine, within the context of an erotic union.

Book excerpt: This is the first archaeological and historical biography of the most fascinating and revered woman in history, Mary of Nazareth, the mother of Christ. Millions of faithful around the world invoke her as their Queen, Protectress and Advocate. But who was this extraordinary woman who was chosen by God to give birth to the Saviour? Bestselling author Michael Hesemann searched for her traces in Italy, Israel, Turkey and Egypt. Based on biblical traditions, legends and archaeological discoveries, he reconstructs the life of Mary of Nazareth, the Mother of the Messiah. From the most ancient Icon of Christianity to the Holy House in Loreto, from the Grotto of Nazareth to the refuge of the Holy Family in Egypt, from Mary's residence in Ephesus,Turkey to Mount Zion and her empty tomb in Jerusalem, this is a journey of discovery, full of surprising insights which deepen our faith in the great mystery of the Incarnation. Hesemann takes us on his exciting search for the historical Virgin Mary –a book full of stunning discoveries from the early days of Christianity – and the historical facts behind the worldwide and centuries long devotion to the mother of Jesus.

Book excerpt: Why does the church engage in missions? Where in the Bible do we find support for this work? These questions have been asked and answered by many throughout the centuries, though rarely does the investigation span across the entire canon of Scripture. In this study Newkirk explores the breadth and depth of biblical teaching concerning God's mission for his people and the church's call to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth. By beginning with creation and ending with new creation, this study reveals that rather than simply deriving from a few "missions verses," the church's call to missions is grounded in the full spectrum of biblical revelation.

Book excerpt: Evangelical and feminist approaches to Old Testament interpretation often seem to be at odds with each other. The authors of this volume argue to the contrary: feminist and evangelical interpreters of the Old Testament can enter into a constructive dialogue that will be fruitful to both parties. They seek to illustrate this with reference to a number of texts and issues relevant to feminist Old Testament interpretation from an explicitly evangelical point of view. In so doing they raise issues that need to be addressed by both evangelical and feminist interpreters of the Old Testament, and present an invitation to faithful and fruitful reading of these portions of Scripture.

Download Christ, Our Joy PDF Full Free by Joseph Murphy and published by Ignatius Press. This book was released on 2008 with total page 220 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Noticing how often the new Pope had the topic of "joy" as the central theme of his many addresses, Murphy delved into the vast writings of the Pope, before and after his election to the papacy, and found that the theme of joy has pervaded all of his theology. Recognizing the Pope's invitation to joy as a key to understanding his basic theological vision, Murphy develops those ideas and writings in a creative way, and helps the reader to engage personally with the original and pastoral mind of Joseph Ratzinger, professor, pastor, and now Pope Benedict XVI. This joy is nothing other than the joy of the Christian faith. Indeed, the "first word of the New Testament," says Pope Benedict XVI, "is an invitation to joy." The Gospel of Jesus Christ, he insists, is not a burdensome imposition but is truly "glad tidings" for mankind. Christianity is the key to true and lasting joy, the only joy that abides in the midst of life's anxieties and difficulties. Written in a clear and engaging style, this book argues that joy is central to all of Pope Benedict's thought. All the other great themes of the Christian faith are intimately connected with it and radiate out from it. The world is in need of hearing once again the message of joy which Jesus Christ makes known. For priests, religious and laity who are concerned with presenting the Christian message in a positive, attractive and convincing way, as well as for all who wish to delve into the rich and exciting thought of Pope Benedict XVI, one of the most inspiring Christian thinkers of recent decades, this timely book will provide insight for personal reflection, preaching and teaching.
