This “everything-you-need-to-know” guide for newcomers to the Episcopal Church is written and designed to provide accessible and user-friendly reading, with an easy-going look and style that’s packed full of substance. The book carefully unpacks the Episcopal Church’s language of worship, theology, church structure, and sacraments, so that newcomers will have the vocabulary and framework to share their beliefs and practices, explore the Bible, understand prayer and discern their own ministry within the church. Drawing upon the success of an earlier book written for teens, the new book retains the same unique presentation, inviting readers to consider their relationship with God and the church community as an ongoing process of transformation, while providing ways to engage in that process.

Before the snake, the apple, and the Ten Commandments, God created a garden… “Spiritual environmentalism” did not start out as an oxymoron–it was an invitation. Yet today, many believe God’s first job description for humankind has been replaced by other “worthier pursuits”. Why has this simple instruction become so controversial? How does one sort through all the mixed messages? Is changing our lives to save the world really our responsibility–or even possible? Gardening Eden invites you to consider a new, spiritual perspective to practical environmentalism. The question is not whether our souls find expression and inspiration in our incredible planet, but how best to preserve that fundamental connection. Green living is no longer a fad–simple lifestyle solutions are now available to everyone. Discover creation care as an act of worship and a call to deeper harmony with our Creator, our fellow gardeners, and our living Earth. Gardening Eden is the primer in how this shift will transform not only our world, but your very soul. From the Trade Paperback edition.

As a young girl growing up in southeast Georgia, she couldn’t wait to graduate high school, if not for anything but, to no longer have to go to church. Monica was eager to experience a world that she had only heard of but, was forbidden to take part in because of her mother’s Christian values. She became tired of hearing all the fun that the other girls had over the weekend while all she did was attend school and church. Her desire to go to a football game, a club or maybe on a date, grew tremendously and all she dreamed about was getting out of her parents house. She finds herself in the hands of a repeated rapist and murderer and now it’s no longer her mother’s faith but, her faith that will be put to the test.

Changing Your Life from Ordinary to Extraordinary

Keep Your Faith On: Changing Your Life From Ordinary to Extraordinary So many people settle for an ordinary life instead of believing in faith to accomplish an extraordinary life. Read about real-life examples to encourage you to achieve the amazing things that the Lord wants to do for you, if only you can believe. Too many in church are unable to overcome their limited beliefs that God will heal them, will provide for their financial needs supernaturally, and will change their children and save their marriage. God will do all of that in more, if you would only get your eyes off of your circumstances and trust in God without fear. Fear is the opposite of faith and stands for False Evidence Appearing Real. The only way that you can please God is with your faith. He loves it when we show bold faith to stand and wait for Him to move the mountains from our paths. Keep Your Faith On provides tangible ways on a day to day basis to believe for anything and accomplish everything.

It is natural that the book demanding our belief in such great things should be asked for its credentials and that these credentials should be subjected to the most searching investigation. The Bible has nothing to fear, however, from the keenest scrutiny of any scholar who has only the desire to get at the truth. The trouble begins when a critic, who is hostile to its spiritual truth of who has a theory to maintain, takes a part in the investigation; even then the truth is sure, in time, to assert its rightful claim.-from "Study VI: The Christian's Book"Part of a respected series of books designed to direct Bible studies, this 1905 volume is still extremely useful for those looking to find guidance and wisdom in that ancient work. From the simplest of questions-What did Christ teach?-to those more profound-How can we apply Christian principles to modern life?-this useful book explores how to bring Christ's influence to bear at home, in the business world, and in society at large.HENRY THORNE SELL (1854-1928) also wrote Bible Studies in the Life of Christ and Bible Studies in the Life of Paul.
