Does accepting the doctrine of biblical inspiration necessitate belief in biblical inerrancy? The Bible has always functioned authoritatively in the life of the church, but what exactly should that mean? Must it mean the Bible is without error in all historical details and ethical teachings? What should thoughtful Christians do with texts that propose God is pleased by human sacrifice or that God commanded Israel to commit acts of genocide? What about texts that contain historical errors or predictions that have gone unfulfilled long beyond their expiration dates? In The Human Faces of God, Thom Stark moves beyond notions of inerrancy in order to confront such problematic texts and open up a conversation about new ways they can be used in service of the church and its moral witness today. Readers looking for an academically informed yet accessible discussion of the Bible's thorniest texts will find a thought-provoking and indispensible resource in The Human Faces of God.

This book provides a demonstration that the difficult notion of the Trinity is alive and well, although not in places that one may have expected. It flourishes in a mythology recovered from an ancient pagan past and, surprisingly, in secular poetry and drama of our own time, even though it is often neglected in popular piety and in academic theology.

“An honest, compelling, surprising, and vastly reassuring book about the spiritual life of women . . . This landmark book is spiritual precisely because it is authentic.”—Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind With a foreword by Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. For many contemporary women, the old patriarchal models of religion are no longer relevant, forming a need to look beyond the male-oriented past to a wider, more fulfilling spiritual horizon. In this fascinating and thought-provoking book, Sherry Anderson and Patricia Hopkins show how many women have redefined traditional beliefs and rediscovered their own unique spiritual heritage—The Feminine Face of God. Anderson and Hopkins guide you through the sacred garden of: • Childhood—seedbed of life's sacred passage • Leaving home—finding your own inner authority • Relationships—new perspectives on intimacy • Spiritual practice—the importance of guidance and discipline • Sexuality—a wild card constantly cracking open the heart • And much more As women enter their sacred garden and learn the art of inner listening, they acquire the tools for living, loving, and praying authentically. In The Feminine Face of God there are seeds for growth: for creating and sustaining intimacy and love in a new way; for a new understanding of sexuality; for a new vision of family, a family of choice in a community of love.

Murder and depravity are Police Commissioner Amédée Mallock’s daily bread. As far as he is concerned, mankind has been thoroughly abandoned by God, and the visions that haunt him do nothing to disabuse him of this notion. But nothing he has encountered has prepared him for the sudden appearance of a serial killer dubbed “the Makeup Artist.” The bodies of the killer’s first victims, found in four separate neighborhoods of Paris, are monstrous works of art, baroque masterpieces of depravity, demented expressions of corrupted piety. These crimes are unprecedented in their ferocity and their intricacy, and the deeper Mallock investigates the greater the mysteries and the enigmas. There seems to be no tenable solution to this series of crimes behind which the devil himself seems to lurk. A supernatural and theological thriller, The Faces of God is superior fiction for fans of the TV series True Detective and of novels by writers such as Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, and Dean Koontz.

In The Forty Faces of God, I take you through scriptures that show you the characters of our God relating to the number 40 with the revelation of numbers. Numbers have strong meaning in the kingdom of God. We are destroyed by our lack of knowledge, and that knowledge is of God. For example, the number 6 means to destroy the works of the devil. David had a six hundred-man army, and the Star of David had six points, and what did David do? He destroyed the enemies of Israel. Chapter 6 of Ephesians tells us how to destroy the fiery attacks of the enemy. The number 40 means spiritual maturity and the more we know God, the more we mature. After you read this book, you will know God in a much better way, which will make you a much better disciple of Jesus--make you much stronger in your walk and display of the power God in your life in this evil and perverse world.

The parable, a short story told to impart a lesson to the listener, was the chief teaching tool of Jesus Christ. In this delightful and inspirational book, author Michael Manning, the TV host of The Word in the World, takes readers on a journey through fifteen of the most beloved parables from the New Testament, in order to enlighten the many different ways seekers can understand God’s presence in their daily lives. From the parable of the talents to the stories of the wedding feast and the Good Samaritan, Manning shows us that God has many faces to meet the diverse challenges we all experience. Certainly God can be seen as a parent or an authority figure, but as the parables demonstrate, God is also a humble servant, a conversationalist, a friend, a risk taker, and an optimist, to name just a few. Knowing this and experiencing God’s many faces can dramatically change your life forever. In our fast-paced, hectic society, Manning’s practical guide for walking a spiritual path is an illuminating, multidimensional work that will help readers to slow down, stop, look, listen, and gaze upon the beautiful faces of God and all his creation.
