The Charismatic Movement And Gifts Of The Spirit Under A Microscope

There have been many books written on this topic, but this book is sure to be different than any you have read before. All who have read the manuscript said they gained new insights into these spiritualities. The author takes a look at the modern charismatic movement from its start at Azusa Street and follows it to what it has grown into today. His point is that, to be a truth seeker, you cant be afraid to take these issues head-on. He discusses the baptism in the Holy Spirit, a totally different view on gifts, true biblical empowerment (strength through weakness, the Paul model), and thirty-three things we receive the instant we become Christians. The last and hardest chapter to write was the topic of the modern-day tongues movement. Is it biblical? Is there a real and a counterfeit? and how can it be tested based on the Bible?

Educational Ministry In The Logic Of The Spirit

In November 2001, James E. Loder Jr., Professor of the Philosophy of Christian Education for forty years at Princeton Theological Seminary, suddenly died. He was a creative and profound thinker who had just completed a promising book. In it he developed a compelling interdisciplinary model to disclose how the divine Spirit affirms, reconstitutes, and transforms the human spirit to bring new energy and creativity into human experience. He called it redemptive transformation. You now hold that book in your hands. Those who know Loder's work are confident that Educational Ministry in the Logic of the Spirit, though delayed for over fifteen years, will still become the best introduction to his complex thought. More important, it offers the imaginative means by which we may learn to attune ourselves and our faith communities to what God is doing in our fractured, distracted, and self-destructive world to bring about a revolution of love--the fruit of Christ's Spirit and the center of our human vocation.

Phyl Amadi looks back at life growing up in Nigeria in this collection of essays that celebrates a time of simplicity when tribes lived in harmony. But that idyllic life did not last: He also lived through the dark days of the Nigeria-Biafra civil war that broke out in 1967 and lasted until 1970. Even when it ended, life was never the same. The fighting triggered a progression of seemingly never-ending decay in Nigerian society, which today is manifested in fraudulent and violent electoral processes, bloody religious conflicts, a corrupt public service, deteriorating infrastructure, and the pervasive false religiosity that seeks to exploit the people. While much has changed in recent years, so much remains the same—with everyday Nigerians still struggling to come to terms with the past while coping with the complexities of the present. These essays written from 2000 to 2005 will make you laugh, cry, and think—but most importantly—they suggest a way to move beyond the pain of the past and toward a brighter future.

This book was envisioned during studies at Vanderbilt University and the University of Oxford in England. The material has been shared during a lifetime of weekend retreats, conferences, and seminars for churches, schools, workplaces, and community groups.

Deep Ministry in a Shallow World will show you a new way to prayerfully reflect on the questions you face in your youth ministry every day so you can find the answers that will take it to deeper places. That’s because authors Chap Clark and Kara Powell have gathered significant research findings that will help shift your ministry paradigm.Did you know that:• the typical strategies we use to build relationships with kids might actually cause them to trust usless because of what this generation has endured?• recent research on communication could help us move past the witty talks and funny stories we work so hard to develop and instead actually connect the Bible to kids’ lives?• studies show that offering students “just Jesus” and not helping them at home, school, and in their neighborhoods might not help them very much at all? The authors’ research also led to their development of the Deep Design problem-solving process—a revolutionary model that will give you better tools than ever before to address every last issue you’ll encounter in youth ministry.
