God Is the Gospel
John Piper
1581347510
Sept 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6 This book is a cry from the heart of John Piper. He is pleading that God himself, as revealed in Christ’s death and resurrection, is the ultimate and greatest gift of the gospel. None of Christ’s gospel deeds and none of our gospel blessings are good news except as means of seeing and savoring the glory of Christ. Forgiveness is good news because it opens the way to the enjoyment of God himself. Justification is good news because it wins access to the presence and pleasures of God himself. Eternal life is good news because it becomes the everlasting enjoyment of Christ. All God’s gifts are loving only to the degree that they...

Snapshots of Hope

Sept 2005
Paperback

Book Description
Snapshots of Hope is a series of reflections on hope, a timely subject in today's world. Written by an excellent storyteller, this collection features stories of ordinary people trying to find hope in the midst of chaos, challenging times, and everyday living. A little girl, a crossing guard at school, gets a spot where no one ever needs help, so she turns her job into one of waving all at the cars and welcoming everyone as they come to school. An old man who stubbornly sits on a rocking chair in his driveway in the midst of a flooded town gives the rest of the town's residents the courage to come home and start cleaning up. Hope, it would seem, is everywhere, even in the most unlikely places. Told in a simple and charming voice, Snapshots of Hope will provide inspiration–and a few giggles–for its...

Getting in the Gap: Making Conscious Contact with God through Meditation
Wayne W. Dyer
140190131X
December 2002
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The practice of meditation takes us on a fabulous journey into the gap between our thoughts, where all the advantages of a more peaceful, stress-free, healthy, and fatigue-free life are available, but which are simply side benefits. The paramount reason for daily meditation is to get into the gap between our thoughts, and make conscious contact with the creative energy of life itself. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explains the soul-nourishing meditation technique for making conscious contact with God, which the ancient masters have told us about. You have the potential to be an instrument of the highest good for all concerned and to be a literal miracle worker in your own life. No person, government, or religion can legitimately claim to do this for you. "In fact," says Dr. Dyer, "I agree with Carl Jung who said, 'One of the main...

Journey to the Heart: Daily Meditations on the Path to Freeing Your Soul
Melody Beattie
0062511211
April 1996
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Beattie, whose The Language of Letting Go (1991) was a best-seller, now slices her message into 365 daily aphorisms, or as she calls them, meditations. There's nothing much wrong with this book as volumes of New Age philosophy go, but it doesn't break any new ground, either. The framework derives from an actual automobile trip that Beattie took across the West with stops at mystical sites such as Sedona, Arizona, and Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. This is no travelogue, however. Neither is it like her previous books, which were, as Beattie testifies, "grounded in pain." The focus here is on discovering a new way to live through joy and hope. The meditations themselves, however, are hardly fresh: "Worrying doesn't help. Our worries are self-punishment, a form of not forgiving ourselves, not loving ourselves, not...


Practical Praying with CD (Audio)

Book Description
John Edward’s focus in spiritual teaching is now being spotlighted on his own path of religious and spiritual enlightenment, and he is now sharing it in this book, PRACTICAL PRAYING: Using the Rosary to Enhance your Life. This book explores the power of the rosary as a tool to bring focused energy and creative thought into your everyday life. For many people, their daily lives are a dark place with an even darker future, and John Edward shares how his belief in the power of prayer alone can help to illuminate a path for each individual to follow… using God’s gift of free will to chart our own course. Although he is quick to suggest this is not the fix to ‘find happiness’ in a material sense, the promise of living a more abundant life in general can be achieved. This book is divided into...

Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life
Jon Kabat-Zinn
1401307787
January 5, 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
In his follow-up to Full Catastrophe Living--a book in which he presented basic meditation techniques as a way of reducing stress and healing from illness--here Jon Kabat-Zinn goes much more deeply into the practice of meditation for its own sake. To Kabat-Zinn, meditation is important because it brings about a state of "mindfulness," a condition of "being" rather than "doing" during which you pay attention to the moment rather than the past, the future, or the multitudinous distractions of modern life. In brief, rather poetic chapters, he describes different meditative practices and what they can do for the practitioner. The idea that meditation is "spiritual" is often confusing to people, Kabat-Zinn writes; he prefers to think of it as what you might call a workout for your consciousness. This book makes learning...
