  • From #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor, the explosive international thriller featuring Navy SEAL turned Homeland Security operative Scot Harvath, who somewhere, somehow, has left the wrong person alive. Six months ago: in the dead of the night, five of the most dangerous detainees in the war on terror are pulled from their isolation cells in Guantanamo Bay, held at gunpoint, and told to strip off their orange jumpsuits. Issued civilian clothes and driven to the base airfield, they are loaded aboard a Boeing 727 and set free. Present day: covert counterterrorism agent Scot Harvath awakens to discover that his world has changed violently—and forever. A sadistic assassin with a personal vendetta is wreaking havoc of biblical proportions. Unleashing nightmarish horrors on those closest to Harvath, the attacker thrusts everything Harvath holds dear—including his life—into absolute peril. Ordered by the president to stay out of the investigation, Harvath is forced to mount his own operation to uncover the conspiracy and to exact revenge. When he discovers a connection between the attacks and a group of prisoners secretly released from Guantanamo, Harvath must ask himself previously unthinkable questions about the organizations and the nation he has spent his life serving. A renegade from his own government, Harvath will place his life on the line as his search for the truth draws him into a showdown with one of the most dangerous men on the face of the earth. Brad Thor roars through this nonstop adventure full of international intrigue, twisted betrayals, and ultimate revenge.

  • Pages : 64
  • ISBN : 1938060164
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Books
  • "These notes accompany Mike Bickle's teaching series The First Commandment.We were created with a longing to be wholehearted. Nothing satisfies the human spirit more than giving the deepest affections of our heart to God. How do we do this? What does it look like to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength? Mike Bickle calls the Body of Christ to a deeper understanding of what it means to love the Lord. Matthew 22 clearly reveals God's desire-that we might respond to Him with love. He longs for our lives to be given fully to Him, that He might empower us to live holy lives from the inside out, in our affections, thoughts, and words. God is preparing for Himself a pure and spotless Bride at the end of the age, a Bride who will call the nations back to the first and great commandment: You shall love the Lord . . . with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first and great commandment. (Matt. 22:35-38)

  • You can't keep the faith unless you give it away. That's a fact. To be a Christian is to be an evangelizer. When the Catholic Church calls us to a "New Evangelization," that's simply a reminder to us of what has always been true. The good news is: you can do it - you can evangelize - and Scott Hahn shows you how. In this this very practical "mission manual" Dr. Hahn equips you with: A guide to understanding what the New Evangelization is, and who it's really for A roadmap that leads you to where it all happens (hint: it's closer than you think) A simple, beautiful message to share - in words and actions You don't need esoteric knowledge. You don't need to master a new set of skills. Evangelization, for Catholics, is simply friendship raised up to the highest level. Enter a deeper friendship with Christ, and you'll want to share his companionship more and more with a wider circle of friends.

  • Publisher : N.a
  • Pages : 762
  • ISBN : UCD:31175010238726
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Catechetics
  • This Catechism is divided into three parts: The first part treats of faith, the second of morals, the third of the means of grace. In the first part Our Lord appears in His character of Teacher; in the second in His character of King; and in the third in His character of High Priest. And since this Catechism proposes as its primary object to answer the question, for what purpose are we here upon earth, thereby emphasizing and giving prominence to man's high calling and destiny, it is especially suited to the present day, when the pursuit of material interests, self-indulgence and pleasure, engrosses the attention of so many. This Catechism is in fact nothing more nor less than an abstract of Our Lord's teaching, and may be called a guide book for the Christian on the road to heaven. - Preface.

    The Lambeth Conference

  • ISBN : 9780567662323
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Religion
  • Originating in 1867 under the presidency of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Lambeth Conference has proactively shaped the modern world by influencing areas as diverse as the ecumenical movement, post-war international relations, and the spiritual lives of hundreds of millions. A team of distinguished scholars from around the world now detail the historical legacy, theological meaning, and pastoral purpose of the Anglican Communion's decennial councils. The next Lambeth Conference will be crucial for the Anglican Communion, which is currently afflicted by destructive tensions over matters long central to Christian identity, such as the nature of holy orders, the definition of sexual morality, and the scope of ecclesial authority. Whether in supplication or celebration, both nurtured by diverse cultural contexts and furthered by the scope of ecumenical horizons, these essays break new ground. The Lambeth Conference is a faithful testament to generations past, and a spur to the ongoing restoration of Anglican theology and devotion in the present.

  • Author : Laurence B. Brown
  • Publisher : Createspace Independent Pub
  • Pages : 562
  • ISBN : 1451562527
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Fiction
  • A powerful challenge to conventional Judeo-Christian theology, The First and Final Commandment combines the author's two books, MisGod'ed and God'ed, within one cover. The First and Final Commandment begins by defining the internal conflicts that fracture the metaphysical worlds of Judaism and Christianity from within, and indeed, which demand reappraisal of the Judeo-Christian scriptures themselves. Incorporating detailed analysis, this work continues on to document the scriptural evidences that suggest continuity in revelation from Judaism to Christianity and, in the end, to orthodox (Sunni) Islam. Provocative and thought-provoking, intelligent and inspiring, this book enters the melee of two thousand years of religious debate with clarity of vision, accuracy of detail, and common sense conclusions which boldly confront conventional Judeo-Christian conclusions.

  • Genre : Religion
  • How can we love our neighbors amid so much division and hurt? Loving your neighbor as yourself would be easy if your neighbors were all people you understood, people you agreed with, people like you. But what about playground bullies, colleagues, refugees, online adversaries? They're all our neighbors, and Jesus said to love them. Every one. But how? Lauren Casper believes the key is the lost art of empathy, stepping into other people’s shoes and asking what if?—what if it were my child? What if it were me? Casper helps us discover how to identify our blind spots and tune our hearts to the stories around us; seek and extend forgiveness with grace and humility; and engage in diverse and meaningful relationships. Following these steps will enable us to connect in simple but life-altering ways, to respond to conflict with grace, bring about needed change, and shine God’s unconditional love into a dark world.

  • This integrated symbol represents the Jewish Messiah who willingly gave His life to reconcile Jew and Gentile to the almighty and to one another. The Hebrew prophets foretold of this reconciliation. Their words are opened through the pages of this book. YAHveh the Father, the Holy One of Israel is inseparably One with YAHshua His Son, the Jewish Messiah, as portrayed in this golden symbol. Their divine memorialnames are from eternity's threshold yet have been hidden for centuries under the doctrines and traditions of men. At the close of this age, Their sacred and awesome names are once again being revealed, glorified, and restored to a place of preeminence. This book is a beautiful tapestry composed of Old and New Covenant [Testament] truths which are as golden threads woven together to create a vivid portrait of YAHveh the Most High God and YAHshua the Messiah. Throughout this book the plumb line of scriptural truth reveals many crooked places, faulty doctrines, and traditions that have permeated religious systems to this day. By His Spirit, YAHveh is calling Jewish and Gentile people alike to read this life changing book. For the Jewish people, the day has come to meet their Messiah; for scriptural mandates. For both Jews and Gentiles the hour has come for all anti-Christian and anti-Semitic walls of division to be exposed and shattered. Holy to YAHveh is a spiritual banqueting table presented before all who hunger and thirst for their Creator and His uncompromised truths. This book magnifies the reality of the holy living God, YAHveh, who desires to escort a remnant from all walks of life into His glorious life changing presence. The Almighty is preparing a righteous remnant who will worship Him in spirit and in truth, now and for all eternity.

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Religion
  • "Where are you?" God called out to the first couple in the Garden of Eden. He never stops asking us the same question. The divine search for us continues in the person of Jesus Christ, the Word of God made flesh. When Jesus himself asks questions in the New Testament, he asks not because he needs an answer, but to draw us out of the shadows and into his presence. And he asks a lot of questions: "Do you want to be healed?" "Who do the crowds say that I am?" "Why do you call me good?" "Whom do you seek?" In A God Who Questions, author Leonard J. DeLorenzo examines twenty of the questions Jesus asks in the Gospels, showing us how they reveal the hidden secrets of our hearts and invite a true encounter with God. Really listening to the questions of Jesus can be painful but wonderful, unsettling yet illuminating, inconvenient but always inspiring.

  • Reader Reviews : 11
  • Genre : Religion
  • In this ebook download of Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus, Lois Tverberg challenges readers to follow their Rabbi more closely by reexamining 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. Doing so will yield fresh, practical insights for following our Rabbi's teachings from a Jewish point of view.

  • For the first time in 400 years the Catholic Church has authorized an official universal catechism which instantly became an international best-seller, the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Using this official Catechism, the highly-regarded author and professor Peter Kreeft presents a complete compendium of all the major beliefs of Catholicism written in his readable and concise style. Since the Catechism of the Catholic Church was written for the express purpose of grounding and fostering catechisms based on it for local needs and ordinary readers, Kreeft does just that, offering a thorough summary of Catholic doctrine, morality, and worship in a popular format with less technical language. He presents a systematic, organic synthesis of the essential and fundamental Catholic teachings in the light of the Second Vatican Council and the whole of the Church's Tradition. This book is the most thorough, complete and popular catechetical summary of Catholic belief in print that is based on the universal Catechism.

It follows the newest and most proven methods and follows protocol for the best results. I have trained with evangelists and have been trained in the best methods using the Word of God, the Holy Spirit, prayer, and the Law of God in the Ten Commandments. Today I am training churches in how to reach the lost with basic, simple steps for beginners to show step by step procedures in easy to remember acronyms. This book, I hope, encourages believers to move from the great omission to the Great Commission. Only 1 in 10 Christians share their faith with others and only 1 in 20 will ever lead another person to Christ. Only 5% of churches have an active Outreach and evangelism program. Revised and updated in 2019.
