The Essential Guide to Deliverance: Finding True Freedom in Christ

The Essential Guide to Deliverance Finding True Freedom in ChristAuthor(s): Larry Richards
Publisher: Chosen Books
Price: $1.99 (June 8-14)

Practical, Everyday Introduction to Deliverance for All Christians

For most Christians, the word deliverance often brings negative connotations to mind: lots of yelling and holy water and darkness–maybe even something from a Hollywood horror movie exorcism. But deliverance is not about shouting or showmanship. It is about the simple act of asking Jesus for help, for freedom, and using his authority over the enemy.

In this accessible and practical guide, evangelical leader and bestselling author Larry Richards walks you through the who, what, when, where, why, and how of deliverance. In everyday language, he shows how you can apply this information to your life and the lives of your friends and family.

As children of God, we have been given access to Jesus’ death-defying power to help free ourselves and others from evil. You don’t have to continue to struggle with persistent problems or strongholds. Your loved ones can be freed from the lies or addictions that hold them back. There is hope in Christ–you can live in freedom!

Includes an extensive glossary of terms and appendixes with prayers and even more practical resources.

October 31, 1517: Martin Luther and the Day that Changed the World

October 31, 1517 Martin Luther and the Day that Changed the WorldAuthor(s): Martin Marty
Publisher: Paraclete Press
Price: $2.99

In this commemorative year, the Reformation is the subject of movies such as the American Public Television seriesThe Reformation: This Changed Everything, museum exhibits at The Morgan Library and Museum, and the Minneapolis Museum of Art and many other festivals and programs across the country. This book by Martin Marty is a wonderful companion resource for the year.

Martin Marty answers the question: Why is the Reformation relevant today?

Rather than a historical narrative of Reformation events, he explains in this accessible book the issues that led to Luther’s posting of the 95 Theses, their implications for the Church and world . . . and most importantly, how this impacts us devotionally as Christians of any denomination. As one of the world’s preeminent Luther scholars, Martin Marty also explores the concept of repentance as a central theme of the Theses. In a foreword, James Martin, SJ, offers context and a shared vision.

This year began with the joint ecumenical commemoration in Lund, Sweden, on October 31, 2016, attended by Pope Francis and members of the Lutheran World Federation and other Christian churches. Martin Marty explains how this event, and indeed all ecumenical dialogue that has happened over the past few hundred years and will happen in this coming year, represents a change of heart.

Includes the 95 Theses of Martin Luther

“Martin Marty is the most widely respected historian of Christianity in the United States today. In this little book he with clarity, compassion, and a good dose of common sense shows how Luther’s story is meaningful today.” —Rev. John O’Malley, S.J., University Professor, Georgetown University

“Martin Marty’s attention to October 31, 1517, the day that Martin Luther promulgated his 95 Theses, provides valuable insights for the past, the present, and the future–why Luther’s articulation of”repentance” meant so much then, why his commitment to “justification” has now built a bridge for Catholics and Lutherans to work with each other, and why this great event of 500 years ago might herald a hopeful future for Christian believers and all others. There is an awful lot packed readably into this one small book.”
—Mark Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame

“I would not dream of preparing my mind and heart for the celebration of Luther’s role in the Reformation without finding out what Martin Marty has to say on the subject. And he says it here in this wonderful little book. The gifted historian that he is, Marty gives us much solid information. But he also writes eloquently about how best to prepare our souls for the kind of commemoration that also includes some prayers of repentance.” —Richard Mouw

“This pithy book offers valuable insight on how Luther’s 95 theses have had a profound influence on he ecumenical movement, and can help Christians today understand what it means to be a member of a truly ‘catholic’ church.” —Kathleen Norris

The Parables of Jesus

The Parables of JesusAuthor(s): James Montgomery Boice
Publisher: Moody Publishers
Price: $0.99 (June 8-14)

“Some sections of the Bible give us grand theology. Some move us to grateful responses to God. But the parables break through mere words and make us ask whether there has indeed been any real difference in our lives.”

In this beloved classic, James Boice takes us systematically through the parables of Jesus, grouping them into five categories: parables of the kingdom, salvation, wisdom and folly, the Christian life, and judgment.

In each section Boice brings Jesus’ words to bear on life today. Through his careful study and clear explanation of each parable—born from a sermon series he preached at the Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, where he pastored for 32 years—he helps us understand just what Jesus meant, and how our hearts and lives ought to respond.

Jesus’ parables are memorable for a reason. Discover their power for yourself.

1 Peter: An Honor-Shame Paraphrase

SPONSORED LISTING

1 Peter An Honor-Shame ParaphraseAuthor(s): Jayson Georges
Publisher: Timē Press
Price: $2.99

Readers often misinterpret Scripture for a simple reason—our culture is very different from the ancient cultures of the Bible. For example, Westerners are often “blind” to the social dynamics of honor and shame.

The Honor-Shame Paraphrase helps you understand the Bible according to its original cultural context. We highlight social nuances to unlock the meaning of Scripture in insightful and accessible ways. This series is ideal for personal devotions, teaching preparation, ministry preparation, Bible studies, and life groups.

The themes of honor and shame saturate the letter of 1 Peter, perhaps more than any other book in the Bible. Learn how the apostle Peter equips and inspires Christians to live honorably in the face of social shame. This paraphrase is completed with a socio-historical introduction, theological summary, outline, and further resources.

Learn more about the Honor-Shame Paraphrase series at http://HonorShame.com/hsp.

ENDORSEMENTS:

“Here is an imaginative approach to First Peter . . . Georges captures well the cultural overtones and undertones of this ancient pastoral letter and its language of honor and shame. Lively paraphrase and imaginative dialogue between First Peter and two putative letters of a pastoral colleague in Cappadocia tease out the honor-shame nuances of this Petrine gem.”
—Dr. John H. Elliott, Professor Emeritus, University of San Francisco, author of 1 Peter, Anchor Bible Commentary

“Georges’ paraphrase helps us read 1 Peter from a fresh perspective. The Bible does not change, but our perspective on the biblical message can change. Georges understand this. His clear and simple prose sheds light on the pervasive influence of honor and shame within Peter’s letter. As a result, readers will gain a new appreciation for the relevance of 1 Peter for our daily lives.”
—Dr. Jackson Wu, professor to Chinese pastors, author of Saving God’s Face.
