Graced 2 Grace by H. Wallace Webster Book Resume:

Grace. Do we really comprehend the implications of that small, one-syllable word? Do we realize how much we have been graced? More importantly, do we understand how God intends us to use that grace throughout the world? Everyone, no matter their location, time of life, or economic circumstances, has been graced greatly by God, and that can be a difficult thing for us to grasp in our more-is-better American culture. We want to believe that we haven't really been graced until we have more of this or enough of that. In this book, Dr. Wallace Webster delves into the mystery of grace. We learn that grace isn't just something conveyed on a favored few; God lavishes it on all of us in ways we may not even realize. We see how those with the least often understand that they have been graced the most. And we learn that we, as citizens of Christ's kingdom, have the great privilege of spreading that grace throughout the world in many amazing ways.

Living by Grace by Tom Rhodes Book Resume:

Living by Grace in an Ungracious World is not accomplished by self-effort. The word “grace” can describe the smooth movement of a ballerina, or the long stride of an Olympic runner, or even geese flying in formation in the sky. Certainly, this gives some idea that grace is a thing of beauty. However, the Biblical doctrine of grace has a much greater meaning for the Christian because it is not possible without the intervention of God Himself. We will find in this book that biblical grace is granted from the Sovereign God who brings that wonderful life through salvation and sanctification. Our part is developed through a personal mindset and personal relationships by yielding to God’s power. True life in Christ is to be living by grace. This is the road less traveled, but the best road to walk on through our sojourn on earth as Christians.

Meet Me in the Morning by Patty Howard Book Resume:

So much of our lives is influenced by how we see God. For author Patty Howard, these words began a two-and-a-half-year journey of listening to God every morning with the expectation that He would speak. When God speaks, He meets us where we are and shows us who we are. Sometimes we are invited to share what we hear. With social media as her pulpit and her friends as her congregation, Howard shared what God had given her every day. The Holy Spirit did the rest. In Meet Me in the Morning, she has gathered those meditations, originally posted on social media, and compiled them into a devotional, mostly in the order and in the form they originally appeared. May these daily meditations encourage you, inspire you, convict you, and convince you that God sees you, knows you, and loves you beyond measure. This daily devotional shows how scripture applies to real life, in real time, and invites you to carry the ideas and insights beyond the page and into your daily life.

Grace Giving by Dave Cotner Book Resume:

This book is about discipleship. It is also about grace-giving. Discipleship is grace-giving. A good discipler is a good grace-giver and a good grace-giver is a good discipler. The two go together. Too often when Christians think of discipleship, they imagine it is nothing more than giving new believers the information they need to be well informed, intelligent, and educated. However, discipleship is not just giving information and praying for a fellow Christian; it is so much more than that!

Grace by Max Lucado Book Resume:

Are you ready to move from insecure to God secure? From regret riddled to better-because-of-it? From afraid to die to ready to fly? Today, find freedom in God’s grace. We often talk about grace, but do we really understand it? Grace politely occupies a phrase in a hymn and fits nicely on a church sign. It never causes trouble or demands a response. When asked, “Do you believe in grace?” who could say no? Bestselling author and pastor Max Lucado helps us dive deeper into what it means to be changed by grace. God’s grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. In this book, you will learn: Grace is everything Jesus You belong to Jesus Jesus lives in you You will increasingly grow more like Jesus There is nothing you can do to get grace—grace gets you Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off. Have you been shaped, emboldened, and softened by grace? Let’s make certain grace gets you.

Stumbling Into Grace by Lisa Harper Book Resume:

“Lisa’s fine grasp of Scripture and love for the Lord make her a trustworthy teacher, yet we learn from her own hard-earned lessons as well. She speaks and writes from a place of understanding, as she clings to God’s hand, giving us the privilege of stumbling into grace with her.” —LIZ CURTIS HIGGS, best-selling author of Bad Girls of the Bible “So, today I’ve been thinking about...things that bind us. The thought flitted around my mind and then landed for a while, likely because I was wearing a pair of too-tight jeans.” Women of Faith® speaker and author Lisa Harper relates from experience — life can be uncertain, sometimes even scary. But with a witty twinkle in her eye and a Bible in her hand, she describes what it’s like to find real security in the arms of a Savior who doesn’t just notice us but who moves heaven and earth on our behalf. Part diary, part devotional, Stumbling Into Grace weaves hilarious and poignant stories from Lisa’s own life with intimate and transformational encounters from the life of Christ. Prayers, reflection questions, and journal prompts help women dig deep into biblical truths to better understand how our Redeemer’s compassion, affection, and constancy make every single moment of life not only more enjoyable but well worth living!

Gain a biblical understanding of grace to discover the true freedom of living obediently. “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound!” we sing… “For by grace you have been saved by faith!” we recite… “We live under grace!” we preach… But do we really understand grace? Grace has become a part of the basic vocabulary of every Christian. Unfortunately, many believers are abusing God’s amazing gift of grace. They have perverted God’s undeserved gift of forgiveness, making it a license for immorality, self-indulgence, and minimal involvement in God’s kingdom. In the process they are robbing themselves of the joy that comes from obedience to God. In this provocative book, pastor and author Dr. Robert Jeffress challenges you to gain a biblical understanding of grace, and reveals how “good grace” can protect your marriage, church, and relationships from confusion and even abuse. Start experiencing the true freedom of living obediently in God’s good grace. Discover Grace Gone Wild!

How we think we grow in relationships is not always how we do grow. We grow in Grace and Truth Relationships. Grace and Truth relationships are authentic and life changing. We often perform for others, isolate ourselves, or just try not to care. It is only as we experience grace and truth from both God and Others that we grow as a person. Sometimes we think, "Heck no, I don't need you, I've got God. We need to be connected both to God and Others. A relational Grid is introduced that helps people understand where they are in relationships and what they need to do to move to authentic ones.

The year's finest writing on mathematics from around the world This annual anthology brings together the year's finest mathematics writing from around the world. Featuring promising new voices alongside some of the foremost names in the field, The Best Writing on Mathematics 2014 makes available to a wide audience many articles not easily found anywhere else—and you don’t need to be a mathematician to enjoy them. These writings offer surprising insights into the nature, meaning, and practice of mathematics today. They delve into the history, philosophy, teaching, and everyday occurrences of math, and take readers behind the scenes of today’s hottest mathematical debates. Here John Conway presents examples of arithmetical statements that are almost certainly true but likely unprovable; Carlo Séquin explores, compares, and illustrates distinct types of one-sided surfaces known as Klein bottles; Keith Devlin asks what makes a video game good for learning mathematics and shows why many games fall short of that goal; Jordan Ellenberg reports on a recent breakthrough in the study of prime numbers; Stephen Pollard argues that mathematical practice, thinking, and experience transcend the utilitarian value of mathematics; and much, much more. In addition to presenting the year’s most memorable writings on mathematics, this must-have anthology includes an introduction by editor Mircea Pitici. This book belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in where math has taken us—and where it is headed.

A Church Called Tov by Scot McKnight,Laura Barringer Book Resume:

What is the way forward for the church? Tragically, in recent years, Christians have gotten used to revelations of abuses of many kinds in our most respected churches—from Willow Creek to Harvest, from Southern Baptist pastors to Sovereign Grace churches. Respected author and theologian Scot McKnight and former Willow Creek member Laura Barringer wrote this book to paint a pathway forward for the church. We need a better way. The sad truth is that churches of all shapes and sizes are susceptible to abuses of power, sexual abuse, and spiritual abuse. Abuses occur most frequently when Christians neglect to create a culture that resists abuse and promotes healing, safety, and spiritual growth. How do we keep these devastating events from repeating themselves? We need a map to get us from where we are today to where we ought to be as the body of Christ. That map is in a mysterious and beautiful little Hebrew word in Scripture that we translate “good,” the word tov. In this book, McKnight and Barringer explore the concept of tov—unpacking its richness and how it can help Christians and churches rise up to fulfill their true calling as imitators of Jesus.

Being Love by Mark Petroff Book Resume:

What’s the number one reason you don’t feel loved or able to give love unconditionally? What if you were given simple tools to overcome this? At times, most of us have felt dissatisfied in relationships due to the core fear of not feeling good enough. In Being Love, author and Life Coach Mark Petroff reveals keys to experiencing real and lasting love—love that overcomes fear, ego patterns, and changing life circumstances. As a result of searching, praying, studying, and coaching all kinds of relationships over many years, he learned successful and universal principles to feel and radiate love. During his coaching sessions and workshops, and through his own relationships, it became clear that we attract what we are. When we connect with the Divinity within us and shift perceptions and behaviors that seem to limit love, we realize that love isn’t something we find; Love is what we become and share. This book asks powerful questions, gives original ideas to empower your choices, and includes practical exercises that enable you to access inner wisdom and make positive changes. Such ideas, questions, and answers have the potential to free and enhance your relationship with yourself, others, and the higher Power you deem sacred.

Your Reasonable Service by Thomas E. Rush Book Resume:

The purpose of Your Reasonable Service is to bring clarification to the issue of spiritual gifts. A number of important questions about the subject are answered, founded in an honest attempt to discover what the Bible says about the gifts. How many spiritual gifts are there? How do I discover my gift? Can I have more than one gift? Should I have all the gifts? Can I have all the gifts? How can I most effectively use my gifts? Do my personality traits or natural human abilities have any bearing on my giftedness? What is the purpose of spiritual gifts? How can I know how other Christians are gifted, and what does that mean for me? What impact does a proper biblical understanding of the gifts have on the local church? If the purpose is to bring clarification, the goal is to provide a tool that pastors, churches, and laypersons can use to determine Gods design for their service to the Lord. One area of the Holy Spirits work that surely needs emphasis in the church today is the work that God desires to do through His church by the exercise of the spiritual gifts given to each and every saint. The bottom-line objective is to help each believer, each church member, discover their Holy Spirit-given motivation for ministry. That motivation is your spiritual gift. A great motto for a church would be, Every member a minister. Of course, for that to happen, the pastor and membership would need to get serious about understanding and discovering the spiritual gifts of each member. I believe that any Bible-believing church would find the results of such an effort to be a tremendous blessing.

Perspectives on Tithing by David A. Croteau Book Resume:

Was the tithe just for Israel, or is it also applicable to Christians? Must a tithe go only to your local church, or can it be received by any Christian organization? Do we tithe on the net or the gross amount? Perspectives on Tithing presents in point-counterpoint format the most common views about how Christians are to give of their financial resources, addressing the myriad of questions that surround the complex issue. Ken Hemphill (Empowering Kingdom Growth) and Bobby Eklund (Eklund Stewardship Ministries) contribute "The Foundations of Giving" while the book's editor, David A. Croteau (Liberty University), writes "The Post-Tithing View: Giving in the New Covenant." A chapter by Reggie Kidd (Reformed Theological Seminary) is called "Tithing in the New Covenant? 'Yes' as Principle, 'No' as Casuistry." Finally, Gary North (Institute for Christian Economics) looks directly at "The Covenantal Tithe," and Scott Preissler (Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) provides the epilogue.

Worn Out by Obedience by Ron Moore Book Resume:

Are you spiritually tired? Many Christians have a deep desire to “turn the corner” in their walk with Jesus. Some don’t know where to start, others are held back by the past, and still others are blinded or calloused by sin. King David, the man after God’s own heart, experienced this very thing, and in Worn Out by Obedience he is presented as a spiritual mentor. David is both flawed and on fire. He is the person we are and the person we want to be. In studying his extended stay in Ziklag (1 Samuel 27–30), readers will see how God often molds our hearts in seasons of brokenness, loneliness, and disappointment—sometimes even in our disobedience. If you are spiritually weary, discouraged, or exhausted, Worn Out by Obedience will help you to keep going—or start moving. You’ll learn the signs of spiritual fatigue and how to avoid them. You’ll see that God uses all our experiences—good and bad—to form Christ in us. And you’ll remember God’s great grace of rescue, recovery, and restoration.

When Faith Catches Fire by Samuel Rodriguez,Robert C. Crosby Book Resume:

God Loves a Heart on Fire What can move your faith from a principle you learn to a passion you experience? According to Samuel Rodriguez and Dr. Robert Crosby, the answer might be found in a surprising place: the Latino church. As the fastest growing minority in America, Latinos are impacting church culture through vibrant worship, fervent prayer, and a commitment to change the world--one soul at a time. As a follower of Jesus, has your soul been truly set afire? Christian leaders are witnessing a remarkable phenomenon, kindled first in the Latino/Hispanic community and spreading like wildfire throughout the global church. Latinos are much discussed in the United States for their dynamic political and socioeconomic impact, but not as much is said about their spiritual influence. In reality the effects of the Latino church are more akin to a spiritual awakening than a mere social trend. And there is so much all believers can learn from Latino Christ-followers. At the core of this dramatic shift is a call to embrace a more soulful, passionate faith. In this powerful book, Christians will gain valuable insights on how to: • fully experience the joy of God and the passion of His Spirit • develop a true sense of unity amidst diversity in the body of Christ • make an eternal impact on their families, communities, and the world Complete with discussion questions for individual reflection or small group use, this timely work will challenge the status quo of passionless Christianity and set the believer’s soul ablaze. “When Faith Catches Fire is both an exploration and a celebration of the ‘salsafication’ of the church….God will use it in splendid ways.” -John Ortberg, senior pastor and author of All the Places to Go “The passionate fire from the heart of this book will serve as a rallying cry to all Latinos and beyond.” -Ronnie Floyd, senior pastor, past president of the Southern Baptist Convention

Love Like That by Les Parrott Book Resume:

Find the revolutionary path to success in the ultimate human challenge: truly loving other people. In this groundbreaking new book, #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Les Parrott weaves together insights from theology, psychology, and sociology to show ordinary believers how to radically change their relationships. Psychologist and relationship expert Dr. Les Parrott provides a revolutionary path to success in the ultimate human challenge: truly loving other people. Let’s be honest. How many times have you fallen short at being a good friend, a wise parent, or a self-giving spouse because you didn’t love--truly love--at the highest level? It’s tough. We’re bound to fail. The bar is so high, especially if you aspire to love like Jesus. But it’s not impossible. In Love Like Jesus, Dr. Parrott takes the latest findings from sociology and psychology and blends them with biblical understanding to reveal practical and often counter-intuitive ways of loving like never before. He breaks them down into five factors--being mindful, being approachable, being a grace-giver, being vulnerable, and being empathetic--and shows how to practice them in daily life. The result will be deeply fulfilling and meaningful connections with nearly anyone you encounter--but especially in the relationships that matter most.

Here Goes Nothing by Kendra Broekhuis Book Resume:

What happens when you ask God, “What do you want me to do today?” This is not a success story. And it’s not one of those stories that has a beginning, a middle, and then a perfectly tidy hind end either. It’s really just a beginning. For thirty days Kendra Broekhuis prayed “to maintain the joy of being wife and mommy amid the daily grind. To see the world through God’s eyes. To live intentionally. To build relationships and share Christ’s love with our neighbors. To learn what it really means to give. To collide ‘motherhood’ with ‘mission.’” This became her motto, her credo, her personal mission statement. Some days it led to actions the Lord gently nudged her to take. Other days it led to reflections the Lord gently whispered into her heart. Every day it led to a single word, one underlying theme that ties all thirty days – all thirty chapters – and their wide variety of topics together: giving. These thirty days found Kendra and her husband and daughter in a strange time of transition. They had just moved back to the United States after teaching for three years in the beautiful country of Guatemala. They were in a new city, working a new job, living in a new apartment building, in search of a new church. And they wanted to put it all together: all of their experiences, all of the things they had just seen and learned and read and discussed. It wasn’t a clean slate but rather a chance to live intentionally. When Kendra and her husband sought advice about the transition from fellow missionary friends, the advice was, “Get to know your neighbors.” It might sound like strange advice, but it made sense. Jesus tells us to “Love God and love your neighbor.” Many times the word neighbor is meant to be vague, but it shouldn’t always be. Part of being mission-minded, no matter where you live or work, is being willing to love the people closest to you, people we often overlook. Kendra’s neighbors—as in the people who live in the other eleven apartments in her building—are whom she often found the Lord’s generosity overflowing to and from during these thirty days.
