Book Description
A collection of Lewis's most profound writing on the deepest truths of the Christian life.




From the Back Cover
Two of Lewis's most famous and compelling sermons have not received the attention they deserve-- "The Weight of Glory" and "Transposition." They are, in fact, grand reconceptualizations of the spiritual life.  This book combines these two beautiful treatises, bringing their wisdom and insight into a whole new generation.  An ideal book for those looking to go deeper after reading Mere Christianity.

Book Description
A confession and manifesto from a senior leader in the emerging church movement—A Generous Orthodoxy calls for a radical, Christ-centered orthodoxy of faith and practice in a missional, generous spirit. Brian McLaren argues for a post-liberal, post-conservative, post-protestant convergence, which will stimulate lively interest and global conversation among thoughtful Christians from all traditions.

In a sweeping exploration of belief, author Brian McLaren takes us across the landscape of faith, envisioning an orthodoxy that aims for Jesus, is driven by love, and is defined by missional intent. A Generous Orthodoxy rediscovers the mysterious and compelling ways that Jesus can be embraced across the entire Christian horizon. Rather than establishing what is and is not "orthodox," McLaren walks through...

From Library Journal
The late Lewis, Oxford professor, scholar, author, and Christian apologist, presents the listener with a case for orthodox Christianity. This is definitely not the shouting, stomping, sweating, spitting televangelist fare so often parodied; Lewis employs logical arguments that are eloquently expressed. He describes those doctrines that the four major denominations in Britain (Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Roman Catholic) would have in common, e.g., original sin, the transcendent Creator God, and the divinity of Jesus as well as his atonement and bodily resurrection. Geoffrey Howard reads both works, and his performance is superb; he is clear and unhurried, giving just the right emphasis and/or inflection. The volume on the Blackstone edition is recorded at a higher level than HarperAudio's....

From the Back Cover
Christian Basics is a classic introduction to the Christian faith and a refresher course in Christianityís essentials. Respected author John Stott answers questions such as: What is Christianity all about? The essence of the Christian faith is not a creed, a code of conduct, or a collection of worship services. Christian Basics explains how Christianity revolves around the person of Jesus Christ and our relationship to him. What does a Christian believe? Christian Basics presents summaries of Christian beliefs, structured around an affirmation of the three Persons of the Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. How do I live as a Christian in a complex world? Jesus summed up Godís moral law in terms of love-not sentimental or selfish, but strong and sacrificial. Christian...

Severe Mercy

Paperback

Book Review
A Severe Mercy, by Sheldon Vanauken, is a heart-rending love story described by its author as "the spiritual autobiography of a love rather than of the lovers." Vanauken chronicles the birth of a powerful pagan love borne out of the relationship he shares with his wife, Davy, and describes the growth of their relationship and the dreams that they share. As a symbol of their love, they name their dream schooner the Grey Goose, "for the grey goose, if its mate is killed flies on alone and never takes another."

While studying at Oxford, Sheldon and Davy develop a friendship with C.S. Lewis, under whose influence and with much intellectual scrutiny they accept the Christian doctrine. As their devotion to God intensifies, Sheldon realizes that he is no longer Davy's primary love--God is. Within this discovery begins a...

Book Description

C.S. Lewis, one of the world's most celebrated authors, writes candidly, clearly, and from the heart about the deepest human concerns of faith, joy, and love in this outstanding collection of four of his best loved works.

Surprised by Joy is a moving chronicle of a modern man who loses and regains his Christian faith; Reflections on the Psalms explores their relevance to contemporary life; The Four Loves sheds light on human affection, friendship, erotic love, and the love of God; and The Business of Heaven is a collection of meditations for every day of the year.

As Lewis wrote, "Joy is the serious business of heaven," and that business, and that goes into making it successful, is celebrated in the writings contained in this special collection.



Ears to Hear
Edward S. Little
0819219398
July 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The word "vocation" may conjure up images of clergy in black suits, bishops in pointed hats, and monks in long robes. But they're not the only ones with vocations-or calls-from God. Lay people, too, are called to serve God, and in this book, Edward S. Little invites us to recognize - and respond - to our own unique vocations. Ears to Hear takes readers on a journey through the Old Testament, showing the way God called ordinary people to service, and drawing parallels for ordinary people in the twenty-first century. The story of Abraham, who was called away from his homeland with no clear destination, exemplifies the insecurity of modern-day readers who may be called to abandon the security of their homes or their jobs to do God's will. The story of Moses, who was armed with a list of serious-and logical-objections...

Give Us Grace

June 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Anglican Christians are the heirs to a rich tradition. No other family of churches has been praying in English as long as the Anglicans, whose prayers have been dominated by the rhythm and beauty of the Book of Common Prayer. Anglicans blend what is best from the Celtic, Orthodox Christian, and Roman Catholic traditions, and add to them ideas important to Anglicans - nature, incarnation, social justice, and more - to create unique and often beautiful prayers. Give Us Grace provides an overview of Anglican prayers from the beginning of that tradition up to the present day. A collection that spans the ages and the continents, the book is arranged chronologically, from writers such as Miles Coverdale and Thomas Cranmer, through the sixteenth-century, and continuing with contemporary writers such as Desmond Tutu, David...

Book Review
In 1943 Great Britain, when hope and the moral fabric of society were threatened by the relentless inhumanity of global war, an Oxford don was invited to give a series of radio lectures addressing the central issues of Christianity. Over half a century after the original lectures, the topic retains it urgency. Expanded into book form, Mere Christianity never flinches as it sets out a rational basis for Christianity and builds an edifice of compassionate morality atop this foundation. As Mr. Lewis clearly demonstrates, Christianity is not a religion of flitting angels and blind faith, but of free will, an innate sense of justice and the grace of God.

Book Description
The writer of popular works such as The Chronicles of Narnia series for children has also touched the world with his biographical journey to Christianity. Lewis was a profound thinker with the rare ability to communicate the philosophical and theological rationale of Christianity in simple yet amazingly effective ways. In The Pilgrim's Regress, Lewis records his search for meaning and spiritiual satisfaction that eventually led him to Christianity. God in the Dock contains forty-eight essays and twelve letters that cover topics as varied as the logic of theism, good and evil, miracles, and ethics. And in Christian Reflections, he addresses Christianity and literature, Christianity and culture, petitionary prayer, modern theology, and biblical criticism.

Book Description
O God, you are the light of the minds that know you,
The joy of the hearts that love you,
And the strength of the wills that serve you.
Grant us so to know you that we may truly love you;
And so to love you that we may fully and freely serve you,
Whose service is perfect freedom,
In and through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Join St. Augustine on a Journey of Faith

In Flame in the Mind, Bishop Michael Marshall uses the great prayers of St. Augustine as a touchstone, inviting us to make this fervent saint our companion in a pilgrimage of spiritual passion and enlightenment.

One of the 'great cloud of witnesses' surrounding us, St. Augustine of Hippo lived hundreds of years ago during the fourth and fifth centuries. Yet his deeply personal Confessions continues to...

Leaving Church: A Memoir of Faith
Barbara Brown Taylor

May 30, 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. A widely acclaimed preacher, Taylor draws on her homiletical skills in this finely crafted memoir with a simple plot: an Episcopal priest exhausts her inner resources, first in an urban church and then in a small country parish; she changes jobs, struggles and finds renewal. Such a synopsis, however, does not do justice to Taylor's literary style in this rich evocation of her lifelong love affair with God. "When I think of my first cathedral," she writes, "I am back in a field behind my parents' house in Kansas, with every stalk of prairie grass lit up from within." Drawn to the church, she compulsively overworks: "I had such a strong instinct for rescue that my breasts fairly leaked when I came across those in need of rescuing." Though she has found new employment, she realizes she is still a...
