How to Do What Jesus Did Do you have problems in life that won't go away? Struggles you can't seem to overcome? It isn't surprising. Like it or not, you are immersed in an invisible war. The problem is, most of us don't know how significantly, or directly, our lives are influenced by unseen battles and beings. Jesus Himself is our model. He taught us how to fight. Here, respected teacher and bestselling author Larry Richards draws not only from the words of Jesus, but also from His actions in dealing with evil spirits, to offer a biblical, balanced approach to spiritual warfare. Richards explains how to · recognize the enemy's attacks today · prepare to face the enemy · experience big and little everyday victories · help others who are under attack · and more! Easy to follow and immediately practical, this handbook will help you become an instrument of God's redemptive grace, continuing Christ's ministry of setting Satan's captives--and yourself--free. "Larry is a truly amazing gift to the Bride of Christ. His expertise and depth of wisdom concerning spiritual warfare are solidly biblical and profoundly practical. Read this book from cover to cover and then pass along these transforming truths."--Karl Clauson, morning host, Moody Radio Chicago

The Anabaptist tradition, originating as part of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation, has from its beginning presented an alternative approach to Christian faith. Jesus-centered Anabaptist convictions such as pacifism, simple living, and community remain of vital concern for twenty-first-century Christians. Embodying the Way of Jesus: Anabaptist Convictions for the Twenty-First Century traces the origins and historical expressions of Anabaptist faith and then suggests ways Anabaptist convictions speak to our contemporary world. Ted Grimsrud proposes a fourfold approach to interpreting Anabaptist theology, considering themes from the Bible, from the tradition's history, from present experience, and from envisioning a hopeful future. What emerges is an engaging portrait of a living tradition that speaks with urgency and relevance to a world badly in need of a message of peace.

After seriously want to be liberated from simply accepting moral directives from family, from media, from ones group, from ones culture and willing to labor to understand what makes any action morally good or bad., Grisez , a lay moral theologian, will equip you to guide your own journey before and to God. Liberated, you will feel you are creating your own self, that your life is in your hands. Grisez is a sound, conservative Catholic, but creatively independent. Appealing only to reason at first, hence accessible to all people, he focuses on free choice and human fulfillment. A clear criterion of good (morally) and bad (morally) choices is provided. Aware we act immorally because of non-integrated feelings, he articulates ways to avoid doing so. These ways he then transforms for the Christian to follow the way of the Lord Jesus, love becoming the criterion of morally good choicesallowing God, who is love, to co-operate in our choices as you create yourself as a loving self.

Renowned poet and novelist Jay Parini’s The Way of Jesus is a book for progressive Christians and spiritual seekers who struggle, as Parini does, with some of the basic questions about human existence: its limits and sadnesses, and its possibilities for awareness and understanding. Part guide to Christian living, part spiritual autobiography, The Way of Jesus is Jay Parini’s exploration of what Jesus really meant, his effort to put love first in our daily lives. Called “one of those writers who can do anything” by Stacy Schiff in the New York Times Book Review, Parini—a lifelong Christian who has at times wavered and questioned his beliefs—recounts his own efforts to follow Jesus’s example, examines the contours of Christian thinking, and describes the solace and structure one can find in the rhythms of the church calendar. Parini’s refreshingly undogmatic approach to Christian thinking incorporates teachings from other religions, as well as from poets and other writers who have helped Parini along his path to understanding.

What does it mean to ‘take up your cross daily’? “Sell your possessions and give to the poor”--really!? “Deny yourself,” Jesus says. How does all of this fit together in a world two thousand years removed? Joining Jesus on the Way, takes a look at the discipleship teachings of Jesus through the lens of the Gospel of Luke. Luke’s unique emphasis on discipleship has long been recognized among the Gospel traditions. One might even call Luke’s Gospel a discipleship manual. In Luke, Jesus prepares his disciples for the power packed ministry they will live out in Luke’s second volume, Acts. Jesus teaches his disciples about self-denial, obedience to his commands, proper attitude toward possessions, faith and prayer, and, after his resurrection, promises them the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to continue the ministry he began. Most of Jesus’ discipleship teachings are found in the “travel narrative” portion of the Gospel of Luke. In these ten chapters, Jesus is traveling up to Jerusalem and his ultimate destiny, the cross. This is a journey on which Jesus invites all would-be disciples to join him. On the way, we learn what it means to be true followers of Jesus. The ultimate goal of the journey is the cross, which every disciple must bear, but the journey does not end here. Death to self means resurrection to new life in Christ. Two thousand years later, Jesus is still calling his followers to join him on the way, but we don’t always know how to answer that call. It’s not necessarily our fault, as we seem to hear very little these days about true discipleship. Some are answering the call but don’t know what to do next. Their pursuit of Jesus is avid, but they need someone to help them along the way. This book is written to be that help. In Joining Jesus on the Way, Mayo considers the implications of Jesus’ discipleship teachings for would-be disciples both then and now. This book is written to challenge 21st century believers to deepen their walk with Jesus, and to choose to take up that proverbial cross and follow him daily.
