Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus: How the Jewish Words of Jesus Can Change Your Life

Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus: How the Jewish Words of Jesus Can Change Your Life

Lois Tverberg

What difference does it make that Jesus was Jewish?

In this ebook download of Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus, Lois Tverberg challenges readers to follow their Rabbi more closely by re-examining his words in the light of their Jewish context. Doing so will provide a richer, deeper understanding of his ministry, compelling us to live differently, to become more Christ-like. We’ll begin to understand why his first Jewish disciples abandoned everything to follow him, to live out his commands.

Our modern society, with its individualism and materialism, is very different than the tight-knit, family-oriented setting Jesus lived and taught in. What wisdom can we glean from his Eastern, biblical attitude toward life? How can knowing Jesus within this context shed light on his teachings for us today?

In Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus we’ll journey back in time to eavesdrop on the conversations that arose among the rabbis of Jesus’ day, and consider how hearing Rabbi Jesus with the ears of a first-century disciple can bring new meaning to our faith. And we’ll listen to Jewish thinkers through the ages, discovering how ideas that germinated in Jesus’ time have borne fruit over time. Doing so will yield fresh, practical insights for following our Rabbi’s teachings from a Jewish point of view

Spiritual Anorexia: How Contemporary Worship Is Starving the Church

Spiritual Anorexia: How Contemporary Worship Is Starving the Church

Doug Erlandson

A Must-Read Book on Worship
It’s Not Just About the Music

In Spiritual Anorexia: How Contemporary Worship is Starving the Church, Dr. Doug Erlandson presents a balanced but devastating critique of the contemporary-style worship model and shows how this type of worship deprives Christians of the feast of true corporate worship.

Drawing from personal experience and extensive research into the history of Christian worship, Dr. Erlandson analyzes the motivations for contemporary-style worship and assesses its strengths and weaknesses. He argues persuasively that corporate worship should be a dramatic presentation of the Gospel. Historically, Christian worship has included distinctive elements in making this presentation. These elements include the call to worship, recitation of the creeds, confession of sin, absolution, Christ-centered preaching and a benediction.

This book should be required reading for anyone leading or wanting to lead a church. Amazon Customer “Addict”

This is not a “Let’s go back to singing only hymns” plea, but a critique aimed toward the mindless, vacuous, repetitive, empty types of songs that often pass for worship in many churches. Review by “Yarn Mama”

I found this book to be an excellent critique of contemporary worship. Not only does he lay out what is wrong with this style of worship and how it is damaging the church, he lays out the history of worship and what it is meant to be. Reviewed by “Melissa”

A must-read for people who are responsible for worship services–pastors, musicians, choir members, lay leaders. Reviewed by Rev. Judith A. Meier

But she can’t forget the look of terror she saw on that face in the instant before her headlights swung away. And she can’t get anyone to believe her story–except maybe a handsome ex-homicide detective turned private eye, who reluctantly agrees to take on the case.

Eleven Bridesmaid Dresses Don’t Lie

Since she was just a little girl, Jessie Stone dreamed up hundreds of marriage proposals, doodled the romantic ideas in her journal with her treasured purple pen, and fantasized about wedding dresses and falling in love. She’s been a bridesmaid nearly a dozen times, waved numerous couples off to sunny honeymoons, and shopped in more department stores for half-price fondue pots than she cares to remember.

But shopping for one key component of these countless proposals hasn’t been quite as productive–a future husband. The man she thought she would marry cheated on her. The crush she has on her best friend Blake is at very best…well, crushing. And speed dating has only churned out memorable horror stories.

So when God shows up one day, in the flesh, and becomes a walking, talking part of her life, Jessie is skeptical. What will it take to convince her that the Almighty has a better plan than one she’s already cooked up in her journals? Can she turn over her pen and trust someone else to craft a love story beyond her wildest dreams?

Cheryl McKay is the screenwriter for the award-winning film The Ultimate Gift.
