Women are admitting promiscuity isn't really getting them what they wanted after all--because as women we always stand to lose so much more than men when we give in. Men love adventure and intrigue, while women crave intimacy, romance, and passion. We were created for so much more than a sexual outlet for men, and as women, we want and deserve more than just sexual release for ourselves. In this fun and interactive companion to Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry, Lisa Bevere helps women of all ages--youth and adult--to look at abstinence from a healthy, life-giving, exciting point of view. Through letters, prayers, questions to answer, and even movies, readers will discover they can gain the freedom to reclaim the dreams they have lost. God wants us to walk in purity--to realize and live the dreams He has for us, and we have for ourselves. It is time to restore dignity, honor, strength--and yes, even power--to generations of women, young and old, who are no longer willing to lose.

Homiletics can be done on any book of the Bible, and any chapter of the Bible. It is a way to break down the Scripture to understand it's meaning. First, as God Himself said in His Word one must have the Holy Spirit to understand the Scripture. In II Corinthians 2:14 the Lord talks about the man without the Spirit of God indwelling him or her and how they are Spiritually discerned. So, the first step in understanding God's Word is to have Him through His Holy Spirit indwelling you. The Scripture is very clear about how this is done, there is only One way. In John 14, Jesus says, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and no man can come to the Father except through Me." Belief in the Lord Jesus Christ as being God's perfect Lamb who has taken away the sin of the world is the only way one can be saved from the wrath of God and have His Spirit come to dwell within. Once you have His Holy Spirit indwelling you, then you have the One who wrote it living inside you to teach you its exact meaning and how to apply the Holy Scriptures to your life. Homiletics is an excellent way to spend time with the Father and let Him teach you his word. In doing Homiletics you will break the passage down into content, division sentences, a subject sentence, an overall aim of this passage, and then application questions to apply the Scripture to your life.

"Preachers must understand the teaching techniques of parable and hyperbole, not to mention having a good background in systematic theology, in order to understand what the Bible's writers really meant.... But our responsibility is also to reduce the complexities of Bible study to such simplicities that our many listeners, ranging from busy young professional people to aging men and women of failing health to youngsters facing a variety of new temptations, can take away a saving word." (from the Preface) E. Carver McGriff provides the tools preachers need for their daunting task with some of the most timely and thought-provoking research on the lectionary texts ever made available. Included for each scriptural lesson in the lectionary are: - A listing of the applicable Revised Common, Roman Catholic, and Episcopal lectionary texts. - A description of the Psalm of the day. - A prayer for the day. - Commentary that is more than academic exegesis -- McGriff brings to the forefront those points in the lessons that relate most poignantly to our contemporary reality. - Suggested sermon titles for each of the three texts for each Sunday. - Themes and suggested directions for preaching on each text. - Several additional illustrations to enliven your preaching. "Known in the Indianapolis community as a preacher with extraordinary gifts, it is no surprise at all that this work by Carver McGriff brings remarkable insights to those who look for integrity in their preaching. Carver looks at the texts with a freshness that is sure to stimulate the thought process.... Careful use of these suggestions will bring serendipities to preacher and congregation." George H. Tooze Senior Minister, First Baptist Church Indianapolis, Indiana One of America's premiere preachers, E. Carver McGriff returned home after earning two Purple Hearts during World War II to earn a degree in business administration from Butler University. Following a career as a salesman and business owner, McGriff entered Garrett Theological Seminary, where he was voted Best Preacher by the faculty and graduated with distinction.

Spiritually, men are frustrated today because they feel they are repeatedly coming up short or are in other ways unfulfilled. Like football players in the “red zone,” they are struggling to complete the drive toward integrity and intimacy with God. That drive toward spiritual maturity requires both a shift of heart and a re-examination of the spiritual habits. What men lack today is, first, clear understanding of what God is really after in the relationship, and second, a clear plan connected to their goals that make sense practically and biblically. That’s what makes this book special: It specifically reveals God’s heart for men in the spiritual “red zone,” and sets forth the choices they must make to take the relationship with God all the way. Like other books in the “Every Man” Series, Every Man, God’s Man boldly gets into men’s heads and gives hope. It helps them persevere in their pursuit of God. Provides new insight into God’s objectives for them. And brings them to the new place God is calling them–a place of completion in the faith.
