Chosen to be God s Prophet Book Review:

God called Samuel to be his prophet during a time of crisis in Israel's history, a time when His chosen people had turned away from Him and were defiantly going their own way. Using the obvious parallels in today's world, noted scholar and teacher Henry Blackaby shows readers how God works in and through those he choses. God spoke to Samuel again and again, shaping him through trials and tragedies Dr. Blackaby calls "defining moments." By studying Samuel's life, readers learn to recognize their own defining moments, and see how moments often defined in crises are simply the voice of God, calling us to His purpose.

It could be that this short testimony of the graciousness of Jesus will inspire you to share your story. The Bible reminds us of the power of our testimony as John writes in Revelation 12, "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death." -Pastor Ed Taylor calvaryaurora.org Are you a Christian who needs encouragement?

You may be the scoffer who thinks that answered prayers are just coincidental happenings that can be explained away. Then Oh How God Works if We Let Him is just what the doctor ordered. In this compilation of answered prayers from one Christian's life and how her faith grew in the hands of her loving God, you are sure to find some answered prayers that will touch your heart and bring you back to your knees, and help you turn your eyes once again upon Jesus.

Emotional Success Book Review:

“As inspiring as it is practical.”—Arianna Huffington, author of Thrive and The Sleep Revolution A pioneering psychologist reveals how three powerful emotions are the surest path to attaining your goals Grit, the ability to persevere against all odds, is widely recognized as the key to success. But how can grit be cultivated and sustained? In this myth-shattering book, David DeSteno reveals that the most powerful tools we can draw upon to achieve our toughest goals are not willpower or self-denial, but our prosocial emotions—gratitude, compassion, and pride. In fact, this undervalued toolkit evolved specifically to help us resist immediate temptations in favor of long-term gains. DeSteno breaks down the long-overlooked mechanisms of perseverance built into our brains and shows how we can work with our emotions, instead of denying them, to achieve our goals. And he shows how we can do it with greater ease and deeper satisfaction than we would have thought possible. “Revolutionary.” —Chade-Meng Tan, author of Joy on Demand and Search Inside Yourself “Anyone who hopes to live a more meaningful and fulfilling life should read this book.”—Peter Salovey, professor of psychology and president, Yale University, and discoverer of emotional intelligence “DeSteno’s provocative argument is that the science of success is, in fact, very much the science of social emotions like gratitude and compassion. I, for one, am convinced!”—Angela Duckworth, author of Grit

God at Work Book Review:

Work can be a daily grind—a hard, monotonous set of thankless tasks. In the midst of the ongoing toil, many are plagued by a lack of purpose, confused as to what to do and who to become. And while some of our vocations may seem more overtly meaningful than others’, the truth is that most of us work because we have to. It is a means to an end—survival. Given the enormous amount of time each of us spends working, we would do well to understand our callings and how God works through them. Here culture expert Gene Veith gives us more than a simple understanding of work—more than a catchy slogan to “do all things for the glory of God.” He outlines a spiritual framework for answering questions such as: What does it mean to be a Christian businessperson or a Christian artist or a Christian lawyer, scientist, construction worker or whatever? How can I know what I am supposed to do with my life? What does it mean to raise a Christian family? And what if I don’t have kids? Unpacking the Bible’s teaching on work, Veith helps us to see the meaning in our vocations, the force behind our ethics, and the transformative presence of God in our everyday, ordinary lives.

Evolution Scripture and Nature Say Yes Book Review:

Christians throughout history have believed that God reveals himself both through Scripture and nature. The metaphor of God’s Two Books is often used to represent these two divine revelations. The Book of God’s Words is the Bible. Scripture reveals inerrant spiritual truths. These include, the God of Christianity is the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the creation is very good, and only humans are created in the Image of God (Gen. 1:1, 27, 31). The Book of God’s Works is the physical world. Nature declares God’s glory, eternal power, and divine nature (Ps. 19:1; Rom. 1:20). Through the gift of science, our Creator has blessed us with the ability to explore and understand the structure, operation, and origin of his creation. Together God’s Two Books offer us a complementary divine revelation of who created the world and how he created it. A majority of Americans view science and religion as being in conflict, according to the Pew Research Center. Christians and non-Christians alike share this view, yet if this perceived conflict misrepresents the relationship between modern science and Christian faith, then it is both unhelpful and unnecessary today. In Evolution: Scripture and Nature Say Yes, theologian and scientist Denis O. Lamoureux reviews several options for embracing biblical Christianity and findings of science, including biological evolution. Holding to a high view of Scripture alongside an expert appreciation for scientific discovery, Lamoureux further outlines a way to understand passages referring to the natural world in the Bible and also demonstrates how modern science can point toward God. Lamoureux shares his own story along the way, recounting struggles many readers will relate to on his journey toward PhDs in both theology and biology and a fruitful relationship between the two. Topics in this book include: A biblical model of intelligent design in nature based on Psalm 19 and Romans 1. Examination of the ancient science in Scripture, such as a flat earth and 3-tier universe. Comparison of different Christian views on origins—young earth creation, progressive creation (old earth creation), and evolutionary creation. Criticisms of the atheistic interpretation of evolution held by Richard Dawkins and his belief that intelligent design is merely an illusion. Galileo’s peaceful relationship between Scripture and nature, including his view that “the intention of the Holy Spirit [in the Bible] is to teach us how one goes to heaven, and not how heaven goes.” Darwin’s religious beliefs and evidence of the impact that intelligent design had on him throughout his life, along with his claim, “It seems to me absurd to doubt that a man may be an ardent Theist [personal God] and an evolutionist.” Believers wanting to honor God’s Two Books—Scripture and Nature—faithfully and without conflict will find an excellent introduction in Evolution: Scripture and Nature Say Yes.

The Laws of God s Kingdom Book Review:

When we talk of the Laws of God’s Kingdom, we are speaking of Rules which people who are in the Kingdom of God must obey or follow. The Rules instruct and command us on how things must be done, or the things that are allowed in it. The Laws of God’s Kingdom also refer to how things happen in the Kingdom of God. In other words, the Laws of God’s Kingdom describe the outcomes or resultant effects of doing this and that, or not doing this and that. Some things may happen in your life, which you did not expect or which you may not explain; but it may just be that an existing Law in the Kingdom of God has worked. God has magnified and exalted His Word above all His Name. Therefore, be careful not to go against the Laws of the Kingdom of God.

God works because God works! That's how God rolls. Yet, we live in a broken and fractured world. It's our fault, and we know it, but God is working on us-never giving up!

Some seem to get that better than others. But, as God's kingdom comes and as God's will is done, and like the great time-keeper God is, and like the master of mosaics he is transforming all of us into the useful thing of beauty-the image of Jesus himself, which we are intended to be!

From providence and miracles to resurrection and intercessory prayer, Edwards shows how a basically noninterventionist model of divine action does justice to the universe as we know and also to central convictions of Christian faith about the goodness of God, the promises of God, and the fulfillment of creation. Here is wonderfully lucid theology supporting an excitement of how God is at work in the universe.

God Does His Best Work with Empty Book Review:

It's amazing how heavy the weight of emptiness can feel, how much room it can take up in our souls, how much pain can be caused by something that isn't even there.But while we may see the emptiness of our lives as our greatest problem, that's not how God sees it. When God looks into the empty places of our lives, He sees His greatest opportunity. God does His best work in the emptiness of our . . . Insatiable craving for things that don't satisfy Relational disappointments and loneliness Frustrated search for purpose and meaning Relentless desire for comfort and security Ongoing struggle to live with loss and unfulfilled dreams Join Nancy Guthrie in discovering why emptiness has never been, and never will be, a problem to God. As Nancy pulls back the curtain on God's work to fill up emptiness as revealed throughout the Bible, you'll experience page after page of grace and hope that your emptiness can and will be filled. You'll begin to see that God really does do His best work with empty--as he fills it with Himself.
