This book Practicing the Presence of the Living God intends to be a guide for a spiritual journey. It can be used in a retreat center, at home, or at work when you are able to secure a few moments of quiet solitude and silence. It is structured around seven days - the number of days normally used for a spiritual retreat. However, the seven days can be reduced to a weekend if this is all the time you can afford. It can also be spread to a much longer time if your circumstances do not allow you to have this amount of hours at the same time. All that you need it your total self. God is totally present to you and you should be totally present to God also. It is based on Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection's little book The Practice of the Presence of God. The content of Brother Lawrence's book encompasses a lifelong application that is life changing. Its message is transformative in its utmost clarity and simplicity because it reveals the heart and soul of everyone's life purpose and work - to live joyfully in the presence of God no matter what our circumstances are. In his book Brother Lawrence reveals a very ordinary life that most of us would not really desire and yet as he fulfilled his everyday duties in the midst of the most mundane and tedious tasks, he learned to live the happiest and most rewarding life. With his gracious humility, "he thought...only of doing little things for the love of God, since he was not capable to doing great things." Indeed, he modeled a life lived in the glory of God's love, peace, and joy. No wonder his book was called a "little spiritual classic," a "devotional masterpiece," an "unparalleled classic," and a book "relevant and timeless." Jean Maalouf in his thorough knowledge of Brother Lawrence's teachings becomes an exceptional guide for a retreat with Brother Lawrence.

Barber uses clear examples and insightful stories to explain such topics as: What evangelization isWhy Catholics often don't evangelizePreparing to be an evangelistThe eight laws of effectively sharing the faith with anyoneJesus the perfect EvangelizerThe heart of evangelizationHow to share your personal testimony Barber explains how to bring people to Christ and to his Church without compromise or conflict.

It is just as important to learn how to receive a blessing as it is to be willing to give one. So teaches John Osteen in this eye-opening book. Growing up during The Great Depression, John's mentality was shaped by frugality that seeped even into his spiritual life. When God tried to bless and increase his life, he struggled with receiving the abundance of God. But the Bible shows us example after example of those whom God blesses after they lose everything. God wants to shower us with abundance: Grace for Your Every Need Forgiveness for Every Relationship Righteousness for Every Accusation of Satan Joy for Your Heartache and Pain Provision for Your Every Lack Love to Reach Out to Others Power for Your Weakness The Holy Spirit for Changing the World Abundant Freedom for Every Stronghold Miracles for Your Impossibilities Using practical application and divine verification from the Bible, John Osteen shows readers how to embrace the abundance of God in every aspect of their lives.

The greatest challenge for the twenty-first-century church is the lack of catechesis--training in biblical and doctrinal knowledge. As J. I. Packer states, "where wise catechesis has flourished the church has flourished, and where it has been neglected the church has floundered." It is increasingly apparent that we are raising up generations of Christians who often have little idea what they should believe and why they should believe it. Grounded in the Faith takes up that challenge with twenty-four low-prep, in-depth sessions that will ground believers in the basics of their faith. This new innovative guide is a transformational disciple-making tool that leaders can immediately use to activate discipleship in the church. It presents individuals, small groups, and Sunday school classes with a cohesive understanding of historic, sound, biblical theology that serves as a catalyst for deeper intimacy with Christ. It is a user-friendly guide to growth in the Christian faith that covers important topics such as justification, overcoming temptation, sanctification, evidence for the inspiration of the Bible, the value of prayer, the guidance of God, the Trinity, the uniqueness of Christ, and the attributes of God.

A short-term, 8 session study of the book of Psalms. The study focuses on the central themes of Psalms. Nearly every psalm is related to the fact that God is present in the world and is lovingly and purposefully involved in the lives of people. Four lessons explore how the people of God are called to praise God who creates and sustains, acts on behalf of God's people, delivers them from trouble, and knows and cares. Four responses to God's actions are suggested: trust in God, keep God's laws, repent and confess, and worship and witness. The Bible Readers Series is designed for adult study groups wishing to explore a particular book of the Bible for a limited number of sessions. It uses the NRSV translation.

God promises that if we seek Him with all our hearts, we will find Him. Along life’s journey, He promises to keep our feet from slipping. When clouds come our way, He sends sun rays to burst through, unveiling His presence. In the midst of the clamoring world, He offers us peace. God reveals Himself to each of us in His own perfect way, sometimes with subtle evidence and sometimes with His shining light. If we race ahead of Him, we may overlook these signs. Distractions of the world may take us on a path away from God, where we miss these signs. However, if we stay in step with Him, a great adventure awaits us. Personal experiences described in Living in His Light offer encouragement for those looking for the reality of our Lord’s never-ending presence.

Do you hear God effectively? Do you really understand God's will for your life? Are you seeking his kingdom or your own? The world is quickly changing. Mankind is facing challenges that are overwhelming. It is time for the body of Christ to rise to the occasion, to show the world that God has answers. It is time to give God the ability to guide your life so it isn't ruled by circumstances and fear. Salvation of the Soul is a challenge to believers to evaluate the way we perceive ourselves and our circumstances. Are we seeing from God's perspective or our own? It is God's insight to changing our thought patterns and unhealthy perceptions, to living a life of goals obtained directly from our creator rather than our own selfish desires. Supporting every point with scripture, Mark Secrest provides clear direction to living out your Salvation of the Soul. Learn a greater insight to how natural circumstances are working in your life, how the human was patterned after his creator and what he was created for. Develop a divine path in your life rather than allowing circumstances and human desire to rule you.
