Saturday’s Featured book and discounted Kindle eBook Finds

Amazon Review: Review
This book is a sweet romance with well-developed characters. It features a young woman who is a grease monkey rather than a girly girl. She can tune up a car but can’t cook even a simple meal. She learns and grows during the course of this book, and she discovers what she really wants for her life.
I wish the ladies in my church had a ministry for young wives; teaching them how to cook, love their husbands and build relationships! What a great and practical idea! Reading this book just might make you hungry as you read many yummy sounding recipes! Some of which can be found on the author’s website! This book would be a wonderful book to share with a friend who doesn’t know the Lord, as the plan of salvation is clearly presented in a non threatening way. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Bible Surveyor Handbook: A 15-Lesson Overview of the Entire Bible

Bible Surveyor Handbook: A 15-Lesson Overview of the Entire Bible

Christy Bower

The Bible is not written in chronological order. That is, if you read through the Bible from cover to cover, you’ll jump around through different periods of history. And some events are repeated in different books, written by different authors, to different audiences, and for different purposes. This is one of the things that can make the Bible seem difficult or confusing. Being able to place the events you are reading about in their correct historical context helps you understand what you’re reading.

In 15 lessons, we’re going to walk through the pages of history to gain a better perspective on how the parts of the Bible flow as one continuous storyline of what God is doing in the world.

The Beginning
The Fathers of Faith
The Exodus
The Conquest of the Promised Land
The Judges
The United Kingdom
The Divided Kingdom
The Surviving Kingdom
The Babylonian Captivity
The Return from Exile to Jerusalem
Between the Testaments: Greek Influence
Between the Testaments: Roman Influence
The Life of Christ
The Spread of the Good News about Christ
The End: God’s Ultimate Goal

We will start from the very beginning, with Adam and Eve in the Garden, and talk about how God began to establish a people of his own, starting with Abraham. Then we’ll learn how that new tribe of Abraham’s descendants became enslaved in Egypt and God rescued them in the Exodus.

Through the leadership of Moses and later Joshua, God led his people to the Promised Land, where he helped them conquer the people of the land, who had fallen under God’s judgment. But then, after Joshua died, there was no clear leader and the people began to fall into sin and chaos. God repeatedly raised up judges to get the people back on track with God.

Eventually, the people wanted a strong, central leader, so they asked for a king to rule them. Saul, David, and Solomon ruled as kings over the people of Israel. But these glory days came to an abrupt end when rivalries divided the kingdom into Israel and Judah.

The Assyrians attacked Israel and the people were sent into exile. The surviving kingdom, Judah, was later attacked by Babylonians. The people of Judah were also taken into captivity, so all of God’s people were scattered across the world.

Then, after seventy years of Babylonian captivity, God caused the Persians to conquer Babylon. The Persians allowed the captives to return to their home; subsidized their trip; and made offerings toward rebuilding the Temple in Jerusalem.

Those who returned to Jerusalem faced a daunting task of rebuilding their demolished city. But the prophets of God encouraged them to persevere so God’s promised Messiah (Christ) could return.

After the prophet Malachi, there are four hundred years of silence before the writings of the New Testament. In lessons 11 and 12, we’ll discuss what influences shaped those years. The Greeks and Romans paved the way for God’s Messiah and the spread of the Good News about Christ in the New Testament era.

Finally, we’ll discuss “the end” as we look at God’s ultimate goal throughout history. The Book of Revelation provides a glimpse into God’s purpose for all of humanity.

Don’t worry if this quick overview was a little overwhelming. We’ll explain things more carefully as we go along. Before long, you’ll be able to talk your way through Bible history, too.

For Beginning and Intermediate Bible Students

This Bible Surveyor Handbook provides an easy-to-understand overview of the entire Bible. At the end of each lesson, there are two suggested reading tracks: one for beginners who want to survey the Bible and one for intermediate students who want to explore the Bible more thoroughly.

Downloads

The suggested readings for each lesson may be downloaded in a convenient chart that can be printed and inserted in your Bible. You may download your free PDF of “101 Readings to Survey the Bible” or “Bible Explorer Readings” at www.ChristyBower.com in the “Downloads” section. And you

Paradoxy: Creating Christian Community Beyond Us and Them

Paradoxy: Creating Christian Community Beyond Us and Them

Ken Howard

Is it possible to be a person of faith yet not very religious?
Is it possible be part of a faith community without giving up your integrity?
In this book Ken Howard describes a different kind of Christianity community in which UNITY does not require UNIFORMITY, and it is possible to create an US without creating a THEM!

Reviews:

“You’re in for something better with this book.”
— Brian McLaren, author & activist

“Howard gives us one of the clearest and most concise commentaries presently available about where the Church may reasonably be seen as going in this time of paradigmatic shift.”
— Phyllis Tickle, author

“Elegantly written, compelling, faithful, and full of hope. An important book to pick up and an impossible book to put down.”
— Ian Markham, dean & president – Virginia Theological Seminary

“It’s hard to imagine a book that could have a more profound impact on our understanding of church today.”
— Andy MacBeth, pastor & blogger

“I am so all about Ken’s vision. It contains real hope. Like Fox Mulder of The X-Files, I Want to Believe…”
— Paul F. M. Zahl, dean & president emeritus – Trinity School for Ministry

“Howard brings a new eye to old church issues beginning with the insight that the only answer to the question “Who’s right and who’s wrong?” is “Jesus.” The Left vs. Right/Conservative vs. Liberal wars are not worth fighting because there are no winners. A great message for a time of church schism. It’s only about relationship.”
— Paul Andreson, pastor

What Did Jesus Ask?: Christian Leaders Reflect on His Questions of Faith

What Did Jesus Ask?: Christian Leaders Reflect on His Questions of Faith

Elizabeth Dias

n What Did Jesus Ask?, more than 70 of today’s most prominent spiritual writers, religious leaders and artists offer modern meditations on the questions Jesus asks in the Bible. Their contemplations provide telling context, with both contemporary and traditional interpretations to lead readers on an exploration of their own faith and to shape their own meaningful answers.

As a teacher, Jesus Christ put many of his lessons in the form of questions. The gospels recorded some 100 others. Some are rhetorical, needing no answer, but most were real questions posed to real people. Many of Jesus’ questions are familiar to readers today, yet the context and the potential interpretations of such phrases will offer enlightenment to many. Organized by Biblical verse, these enigmatic questions include:

“You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” – Matthew 8:26

“Why do you call me good?” – Mark 10:18

“Does this offend you?” – John 6:16

Contributors include bestselling singer/songwriters Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith, Christian leaders Barbara Taylor and Cardinal Wuerl of Washington, and bestselling authors James Martin and Sarah Young, and many more. Including a foreword by Nancy Gibbs, bestselling author and managing editor of TIME magazine, What Did Jesus Ask? is a thought-provoking volume for both readers interested in religious thought and understanding the teachings of Jesus better.

In the Heart of the Dark Wood

In the Heart of the Dark Wood

Billy Coffey

A motherless girl hungry for hope . . . and the dream that could be leading her astray.

Almost two years have passed since twelve-year-old Allie Granderson’s beloved mother, Mary, disappeared into the wild tornado winds. Her body has never been found.

Allie clings to memories of her mother, just as she clings to the broken compass she left behind, the makeshift Nativity scene in the front yard, and her best friend Zach. But even with Zach at her side, the compass on her wrist, and the Nativity right outside the window, Allie cannot help but feel lost in all the growing up that must get done.

When the Holy Mother disappears from the yard, Allie’s bewilderment is compounded by the sudden movement of her mother’s compass.

Following the needle, Allie and Zach leave the city behind and push into the inky forest on the outskirts of Mattingly. For Allie, the journey is more than a ghost hunt: she is rejoining the mother she lost—and finding herself with each step deeper into the heart of the dark wood.

Brimming with lyrical prose and unexpected discoveries, In the Heart of the Dark Wood illustrates the steep transition we all must undergo—the moment we shed our childlike selves and step into the strange territory of adulthood.
