The Word is a seed destined to bear fruit as it is spoken into existence. When truth is grafted in one's heart, negativity and unbelief lose their power as forces of evil bow to the authority of God's Word, setting people free and altering destinies. (Practical Life)

When Lonnie and Belinda Riley return to live in their hometown of Lynch, Kentucky, on a cold March night in 1999, they arrive with no job, no income, and no clue about what to do next. But they do arrive with one certainty: God has called them to leave a comfortable, "make-it-happen" kind of life to live totally dependent on Him to show them how to serve the people in the heart of Appalachia-and that is all they need. As the Rileys learn to live the faith-life, miracle after miracle occurs as God provides in ways that only He can and as He does things only He can do. As word spreads about what is happening, over the next ten years more than 30,000 short- and long-term volunteers come to minister alongside the Rileys in the more than twenty ministries they begin, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in goods and services are donated through Meridzo Center Ministries, Inc. Story after story emerges of how God provides sometimes after a need is known and sometimes before a need is known. Miracle in the Mountains chronicles more than fifty-seven of the hundreds of stories that have emerged as well as many of the biblical principles that the Rileys have learned about how to live the faith-life. These principles are applicable in the life of any reader who is willing to follow God without reservation. "You will be inspired and encouraged as you read the stories," writes Claude V. King, coauthor with Henry Blackaby of Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God. "Th e practical principles Lonnie and Belinda have learned and shared will help you in your own walk of faith. You'll be hungry for more."

How does an infinite God relate to finite human beings? How does the death of Jesus Christ bring about human salvation? How are Christians able to actively address the world's ills while maintaining their citizenship in the kingdom of God? These are questions the church grapples with today, as it always has. Yet, according to Thomas C. Oden, contemporary theology has neglected the church's traditional answer to these questions: the doctrine of grace. All too often modern theologians either ignore the doctrine of grace or relate it to the achievement of a particular political agenda. Oden asserts that only by reclaiming the centrality of grace--defined as God's self-giving through Jesus Christ in personal encounter with the individual human will--can Christian theology be true to the gospel. In order to reclaim the doctrine of grace, the author reaches back, beyond the fragmentation of theology that took place during and after the Enlightenment. He draws upon the ecumenical consensus held by early Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant theologians, councils, and creeds regarding this cardinal Christian doctrine. By adducing this ancient unity, Oden challenges modern assumptions concerning the sources and methods of the theological enterprise and calls contemporary Christians to discern what their forebears in the faith knew to be essential to the gospel: that to be a Christian is to be formed, nurtured, and upheld solely by divine grace.

"Having faith in the Lord is not something that involves solely our intelligence, the area of intellectual knowledge; rather, it is a change that involves our life, our whole self: feelings, heart, intelligence, will, corporeity, emotions, and human relationships. With faith everything truly changes." So Pope Benedict XVI introduced his catecheses for the Year of Faith, a series of sixteen talks given at his weekly audience from October 2012 to the end of his papacy in February 2013. These talks explore how and why faith is relevant in the contemporary world. How can we come to certainty about things that cannot be calculated or scientifically confirmed? What does God's revelation mean for our daily lives? How can the hunger of the human heart be fulfilled? Offering the guidance of biblical exegesis, pastoral exhortation, and brotherly encouragement, Pope Benedict seeks to answer these questions and many others.

Four years ago, Sue Reynolds was morbidly obese at 335 pounds. After being on yo-yo diets almost all her life, she tried one more time without much hope for positive results. But this time was different. She was fed up with not being able to do things because of her size. She was tired of not being able to tie her own shoes, fit in restaurant booths, or walk more than a few feet. She was ready. The Athlete Inside follows Reynolds's journey as she lost 200 pounds and found an athlete hiding inside her body. From her first walk to the neighbor's mailbox to finishing sixth at the World Triathlon Championship, Reynolds discovered the joy of conquering fear and pride to find that the best version of herself had been there all along. A world-class triathlete and a grandmother, Reynolds is proof that you can transform your life at any age. Her story is one of hope, tenacity, and faith, as she committed to doing whatever it took to be among the best triathletes in the world. It's a story about a unique intergenerational relationship between Reynolds and the young coach who earned her trust and helped her develop fitness and confidence. It's a story about the power of kindness and the spiritual growth Reynolds experienced as she realized the compassion that surrounded her was the face of God. Ultimately, it's the story of how each of us can discover amazing gifts and talents within ourselves.

The God revealed in the Bible loves us and has a wonderful plan for us. For us to experience God's nearness, we must have a right understanding of who He is. Today's world offers many alternative "gods" to whom we can pray: Allah, Buddha, a Higher Power, and even our "higher self"! There is only one true God and He exists as Three Persons in One, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We accept by faith what the Bible tells us about God and that He sent His Son to die for us on the cross so we may have an intimate and right relationship with God. The Holy Spirit is co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. He possesses all of the attributes of God.
