Beside Still Waters Book Review:

"Fascinating, elegant . . . [Easterbrook] invests the timeless question of life's meaning with distinctly contemporary pertinence."--George Will, Newsweek Yes, says Gregg Easterbrook in this provocative and probing new book. In the tradition of Jack Miles's God A Biography and the work of Karen Armstrong, Beside Still Waters ponders the question "Is there anything left to believe in?" Gregg Easterbrook persuasively argues that rationality and outright doubt are inevitable and indeed vital elements of spiritual faith. Other new and important ideas about spiritual thought include the challenging observation that the Bible never actually proclaims God omnipotent -- a concept, Easterbrook suggests, that arose through the sociology and politics of religion, nor Scripture. Bucking the current trend to undermine the Bible's historical value, he affirms that it is neither simple myth nor mere literature, but rather it records many genuine events that can be seen to chart a spiritual journey not only of man but also of God. A thought-provoking book for anyone who believes that true faith can and should accommodate sincere doubt, Beside Still Waters addresses some of the central spiritual issues of a profoundly skeptical age.

Beside Still Waters Book Review:

This is a passionate love story, with its roots in Toronto and its resolution in the dark heart of contemporary Africa. Adam Waters’ search for the woman he loves, who has mysteriously disappeared from their hotel room, takes him from the casinos of Puerto Rico to war-torn Gabon and a leper colony deep in the African bush. Counterpointing Adam’s quest are his memories from boyhood, and of his father, wandering jazzman Sweet Web Waters; his experiences as a war correspondent; and the girl who becomes his lover, dancer Gabrielle. Callaghan confronts the pure joy that can be in sexuality and the evil that is inherent in the nature of growth itself, by combining the excitement of an adventure story with the exuberant love of language.

Beside Still Waters Book Review:

A compelling question for people of faith today is how to remain committed to one's own religious tradition while being open to the beauty and truth of other religions. For example, some fear that Buddhism is a threat to Western faith traditions and express grave doubts about interreligious and cross-cultural encounters. Yet, many who have actually broadened their experience profess to have developed a deeper understanding of and a deeper commitment to their tradition of origin. This is what makes Beside Still Waters: Jews, Christians, and the Way of the Buddha such a new and meaningful contribution. Rather than offering research or lectures, Beside Still Waters takes a deeply personal approach, allowing the reader to delve into the individual experiences of fourteen Jews and Christians whose encounters with Buddhism have truly impacted their sense of religious identity. As Jack Miles, author of God: A Biography, says in the book's foreword, "The Buddhist presence in the religious world is far larger than a head-count of Buddhists can reveal." Beside Still Waters upholds this point by way of the diverse and eloquent authors who lend their perspective in its pages; these include Sylvia Boorstein, John B. Cobb, Norman Fischer, Ruben Habito, and other important members of the Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, and scholarly communities. Their collected anecdotes and interviews amount to an unprecedented and enduring work, sure to deepen our ability to understand each other, and therefore, ourselves.

Beside Still Waters Book Review:

With a stroke of the paintbrush, artist Darrell Bush casts the lake's glories in a light so radiant it beckons one and all to come to the water's edge. Alongside reflections and quotes that illuminate the wonder of creation, each page reveals inspired scenes--welcoming Adirondack chairs facing the sunset, graceful birds soaring high above the lake's shimmery surface, cozy cabins promising warm shelter by the shore. This celebration of nature's splendor is an invitation to dive into the refreshment of joy, hope, and the abundance the water offers. It's a perfect gift for those who love outdoor escapes, the lake lifestyle, or the treasure of a great view.

Beside Still Waters Book Review:

Devotional books are a wonderful way to connect with the Word of God on a daily basis. However, many 365-day offerings provide little more than 60-second sound bites to sustain readers for brief reflection. So if you've been searching for a devotional reader that takes a deeper dive into the book of Psalms, then you've got a trustworthy guide in your hands. Journey into this fascinating Bible book of history, poetry, prophecy, wisdom, and song with Pastor Barry Stagner, author of the acclaimed 365-day devotional, Body Builders. You will not only be inspired in the moment, but invigorated with insight to go the distance as the Psalms come to life in the context of today's hectic world. Regardless of what season of life you're in, Beside Still Waters will revive your soul and sustain your spirit with timeless revelation and practical application as you walk day by day through the majestic and marvelous book of Psalms. From the introduction: "Nothing in the history of human literature will ever come remotely close to what you are about to encounter. Listen to the heartfelt pleas of mankind that arise from the depths of personal pain and despair, and you will hear the ecstatic praise of the same, offered to Him alone who is worthy to receive it. Together we will read the lyrics to songs that have long since lost their melodies, and we will hear the confessions of a man who has been broken by his own sin. We will learn how to walk through the valley of the shadow of death and fear no evil. We will discover that we are to bless the Lord at all times and let His praise continually be in our mouths-no matter how we are "feeling." You will soon discover that our study in the Book of Psalms will be much like reaching into a deep well and drawing out untold riches and truth that can we can apply to our everyday lives."

By the Still Waters Book Review:

AS A COUNTRY preacher in the lowlands of eastern Carolina I lived literally by still waters. Here is a serene retreat for him who cares to live a day at a time with leisure to “linger, list and dream": cypress swamps low-hung with moss; lazy waters where fishing-boats float carelessly; darkies abundant—another proof of leisureliness!—and everywhere the calm of restfulness that seems to drift in with the tide from the nearby sea. For one who easily grows tired of modernity’s mad masquerade it is pleasant to return to these tranquil lowlands. Nothing is more restful than a stroll beside these still waters while the wood-thrush serenades from the cypresses, while cattle amble homeward along pasture-lanes, and darkies hum their way from the fields at sundown. Is it not significant that most of the men of God in the Bible knew best the fields, the pastures, the woods and waterways? Abel, the keeper of sheep; Abraham, Joseph, Moses, learning their deepest lessons among the flocks; David, the ideal shepherd-boy, whose later psalms breathe so often the spirit of early days among the quiet hills; Amos, the herdsmen, John the Baptist, the fishermen-disciples, and, above all, the Lord Jesus—these knew the way of the still waters. But drowsy waters alone cannot rest the soul. Yet these pleasant waterways of earth have their counterpart in the Word: “He leadeth me beside the still waters.” In the terrific pace of this age men break in body, mind and spirit, and he who knows not God’s waters of quietness knows no peace at any price. By Stoic hardihood, by “drowning their troubles,” by forced optimism, by psychologic fads and freakish mental calisthenics, men seek “That blessed mood In which the burden of the mystery, In which the heavy and the weary weight Of all this unintelligible world Is lightened.” But they find it not. Partly, because it is not a mood, “a feeling fond and fugitive.” It is a matter of faith, taking God at His Word. We reach the still waters when we cease being Ponce de Leons, looking for an elusive fountain of youth, and humbly follow the Good Shepherd to the green pastures. Men call that foolish, crude, childish—there are so many newer, more up-to-date recipes for peacefulness. Everywhere fine boulevards lead to the popular resorts of this “ism” and that, where with clever new methods earth’s doctors seek to treat the soul. But how often scholars ransack libraries looking for the secret of peace while the janitor may have found it long ago by the way of the Cross! Do you know the waters of His rest? We do not mean that daily you will bask in happy circumstances. “In the world ye shall have tribulation” Our Lord’s life was full of storm and tempest, yet in the darkest days of all He bequeathed to us His legacy of peace (John 16:33). His rest is no imaginary escape from reality. His peace is that blessed consciousness that in the midst of trouble our real lives are beyond the reach of circumstance hid with Christ in God. Blessed experience, possible for the humblest believer here and now! And blessed prospect still ahead for us when this mortal shall have put on immortality: “A pure river of water of life, clear as crystal proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb!”

Beside Still Waters Book Review:

"He leads me beside still waters..." Psalm 23: 2When our children enter the bondage of addiction, it seems impossible to find any peace in our lives. Instead of still waters, we feel as if we are in the middle of a roaring river.The mother-child relationship is unique among all human relationships. Not only do our children share our bodies for nine months, they are a permanent part of our hearts.When they begin to make troubling choices, the desire to "fix" things often leads to the trap of codependency and enabling. We just want to make things better; however, that can be the worst thing that we can do for our child. "Beside Still Waters: Finding Peace in the Midst of Your Child's Addiction" is a guide for mothers as they walk through the heart-wrenching times of their child's addiction, dealing with topics such as denial, worry, enabling, guilt feelings, codependency, legal issues, signs of addiction, and more. Written from a Christ-centered, Bible-based perspective, it can be used by individuals or as the curriculum for a mothers' support group.
