In life's trials and triumphs, God is initiating boys and men through the stages of manhood from Beloved Son to Cowboy to Warrior to Lover to King to Sage. Fathered by God maps out the path of manhood?not more rules, not another list of principles, not formulas, but a sure path men have followed for centuries before us. Find that path and become the man God sees in you.

John Eldredge revises and updates his best-selling, renowned Christian classic. God designed men to be dangerous, says John Eldredge. Simply look at the dreams and desires written in the heart of every boy: To be a hero, to be a warrior, to live a life of adventure and risk. Sadly, most men abandon those dreams and desires-aided by a Christianity that feels like nothing more than pressure to be a "nice guy." It is no wonder that many men avoid church, and those who go are often passive and bored to death. In this provocative book, Eldredge gives women a look inside the true heart of a man and gives men permission to be what God designed them to be-dangerous, passionate, alive, and free.

The text of the New Testament, drawn from the New Testament for Everyone series, fully integrated to smooth joins between sections and provide a level of internal consistency, for example in how individual Greek terms are rendered. The translation is an accurate rendering of the Greek original, which is the product of a single mind (whose thought has developed over time) rather than a committee. It also represents Tom Wright's view of the New Testament, something that has helped to shape his theology.

Crisis intervention/"Christ-is" intervention, Volume I, is a carefully researched guide for personal and professional growth that systematically enables an individual to shift from a crisis to healthy and valiant living. On a 25-year quest for the meaning of "self-value," the author/psychologist unveils the biblical origin and characteristics of "spiritual valueness." The relationship between spiritual crises and imbalances of values is biblically researched. Specific types of spiritual crises with their eight subtypes are explained so that individuals can assess these crises through practical applications and appropriate questionnaires. Drawing from principles and analogies in mathematics, chemistry, physics, and sports fitness training, Dr. Cosenza shows individuals in spiritual search how to shift the balances of their values on the spiritual seesaw of life so as to maintain spiritual valor in and out of crises. Using a step-wise spiritual fitness training model, he unfolds a spiritual model for crisis intervention or "Christ-is" intervention, which utilizes biblically based balance training exercises to prevent, evaluate, and correct particular critical conditions This unique form of spiritual fitness has major applications for individuals in need as well as spiritual leaders, mental health professionals, pastoral counseling, and health/fitness trainers.

In this book, Daniel Thompson shares his life experiences and how he relates them to developing a richer, fuller relationship with Jesus Christ, God, and the Holy Spirit. Biblical quotes are included, to be studied and applied to your own life experiences. It is his desire as you read his book that you will understand your own life challenges and how you can relate them to deepening your own relationship with our personal Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ gave us the words in the Lord's Prayer, and it is up to us to incorporate them into our own lives. Daniel encourages you to write your own words in this book and leave your own legacy to your family. Most importantly, when you put your own personal feelings in writing, you show God you are doing more than merely reciting words. You are defining your own personal relationship with God, and you are showing Him you are looking forward to spending eternity in His heavenly kingdom. "Thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the Lord's Prayer through the life, testimony, and practical direction that Thompson gives us in this work. Excellent read and workbook for someone wanting to not only learn more on how to pray the Lord's Prayer, but to live it. And as his pastor, I can certainly say he lives it." -"Dr. Randall T.

How can we understand what we do not know? How can we comprehend what is outside our experience? God is holy; we are sinful. God is all-powerful and all-knowing and perfect love ... and we are not. He knows us completely, and it is the desire of his heart for his children to know him. The best teachers will patiently lead students one step at a time, using what students do know to increase their understanding of what they need to learn. God is the master teacher. God reveals himself to his children, in the Bible and in everyday experiences, using what they do understand to help them learn the truth about who he is. He takes what is familiar to them and says, “At least in some ways, I AM like that.” It is not enough to have knowledge of what God said; we must have understanding of what he wants us to learn. Examine thirteen metaphors God uses to describe himself and find deeper understanding of this God who wants you to know him.
