The Ragamuffin Gospel Visual Edition: Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, and Burnt Out
Life in the Gospel
When I received this book, I had recently been through an unexpected and unwanted divorce. I had made many mistakes over the previous decade of my life and at times was overwhelmed with feelings of inadequacy. While reading the introduction statements from Michael W. Smith and Rich Mullins, before I ever even got to the first chapter, I had tears streaming down my face. Just remembering it ...
What Is the Gospel? (9marks)
I want this in the hands of every church member!
What is the Gospel? That's a tough question especially for someone to attempt to answer in their first attempt at a book. Greg Gilbert has had some training for sure, however, in his work with Mark Dever, so I was pretty confident that he could do it. Actually, this is not my first experience with Gilbert answering this question. I have recently read his addendum to Proclaiming a ...
The Gnostic Gospels
Dogma, Politics, History, and Heretics
The Gnostic Gospels by Elaine Pagels, 1979 Fascinating! Documents that were detained for thirty years in a monopoly of greed, political squabbles, and personal rivalries among scholars, finally found their way into the right hands at the right time--Elaine Pagels. In 1945, the year of the discovery of fifty-two texts at Nag Hammadi in Northern Egypt, she was two years old. In 1961 UNESCO ...
American Gospel: God, the Founding Fathers, and the Making of a Nation
Random House Trade Paperbacks
This book made me realize how fortunate I am
American Gospel is right on target. Americans are fortunate that our founders conceived the wall of separation between church and state. These educated and forward thinking representatives had the historical knowledge to realize the folly of alternatives.
The Hole in Our Gospel: What Does God Expect of Us? The Answer That Changed My Life and Might Just Change the ...
Life changing book!
I read this book at the beginning of the year. It so moved me to reach out for the "least of these" in my community that I began the process of becoming a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) to work with foster kids. To me, they are among the "least of these" in our backyards. Thank you, to Rich Stearns, for writing from the heart, and inspiring His people to take tangible actions to care ...
The Bullpen Gospels: Major League Dreams of a Minor League Veteran
A great read for a true baseball fan
This book is just downright funny and yet quite poignant as well. Dirk Hayhurst is a great observer of a particular sub culture that must be compared and quite appropriately soto Jim Bouton's Ball Four. What makes this book even more interesting is that he is talking about the minor leagues and the dreams, often unrealistic, of young men pursuing a goal to "make it" in the big leagues. The ...
The Naked Gospel: The Truth You May Never Hear in Church
Farley has done a great job
The Naked Gospel should be read by everyone from the pew to the pulpit. Farley does a great job of stripping away all the additions that we have as humans have tacked on to Jesus. Thus making the Gospel of Christ a Jesus plus what ever you want to put to it to make you feel good. As he states in the book the Resurrected Christ is enough we do not need anything other than Jesus. I can appreciate ...
The Hole in Our Gospel: What does God expect of Us? The Answer that Changed my Life and Might Just Change ...
Caution: This Read Might Change Your Life!
If I ruled the world, "The Hole in Our Gospel" by Rich Stearns, president of World Vision, would be mandatory reading for anyone who claims to be a follower of Christ-- Alternatively, we could read our bibles and take them seriously, not glossing over the hard passages or making, "well, that was then" types of excuses for the way our Christian lives don't look like Christ's... "There is a hole ...
The Gospel According to Coco Chanel: Life Lessons from the World's Most Elegant Woman
I received this book as a birthday present a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it! It's funny and helpful, advice from strong women has always been important and interesting to me and this book really hit the nail on the head!
Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal
Are You Sure Mel Brooks Didn't Write This?
I'll be brief.....buy this book if you want to laugh. I read the title and didn't stop laughing for all 1200 pages on my ipad. The writing is clear and evocative and Moore's wit is simply wonderful to experience. Not to spoil anything, but the preparation for the Sermon on the Mount was my favorite section. If you like Mel Brooks, Larry David, Groucho Marx, and of course, the Simpsons, and you ...
The Gospel According to Larry
Spreads Like Teen Spirit
Throughout The Gospel According to Larry, Janet Tashjian wove a great story of a teenager, Josh Swensen, who is really bored with his life1. He creates a consumerism-bashing website under the name Larry, and soon every kid in the country is crossing out the logos on his or her T-shirt, participating in boycotts, and trying to figure out who Larry is by analyzing his possessions. The Larry craze ...
Beyond Belief: The Secret Gospel of Thomas
A Good Contrast of The Gospel of John with the Gospel of Thomas
I read this outstanding book by Elaine Pagels and enjoyed it very much. I give it five stars. A review of this book in the Christian Science Monitor said, "This remarkable book will stir and provoke thought. It offers rewards to any reader concerned with the promise and power of faith, and the hunger for spiritual discovery." It lived up to this description and much more. Pagels makes clear ...
The Gospel for Real Life (with Study Guide)
Gospel for All Areas of Salvation
Let me start with the author's main objective and then notify you how I got there: The cross and its effectual work on the believer. Jerry Bridges is very dependable and readable popular Christian author. His writing is easy to understand and always provides edification for the new believer and the mature Christian. I like his style and the content of this volume is resplendent, yet ...
Gospel-Powered Parenting: How the Gospel Shapes and Transforms Parenting
William P. Farley
P & R Publishing
Best Parenting Book Ever?
I have read many books on parenting and this is perhaps one of the best ever. As a father of three I always want to strive to be the best parent possible. I agree wholeheartedly that working on our marriage is key and crucial. Additionally, I think authentically living out the Christian faith As a youth pastor I disagree with his statement that it doesn't matter where or how your kids are ...
The Rest of the Gospel: When the Partial Gospel Has Worn You Out
This is a rare find.
I had met Dan back in 1981, when he was sharing this message with small groups. He says in his book that it took him 21 years to come to this revelation. I thought I knew it, but found out that I only knew it intellectually. It took me 25 years after hearing it for me to experience it. As he says - "Could it REALLY be that Christ was living HIS life through us?" Gal 2:20 doesn't say "I ...
The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster
Can i get a RAmen?
I LOVE THIS BOOK! I have not read it, but i don't need to because my local Pastafarian community leader tells me it is really great and i have fully embraced it into my life. May his noodly appendage be with you.
The Gospel According to Jesus: A New Translation and Guide to His Essential Teachings for Believers and ...
"New Gospel" not for fundamentalists
Absolutely great, simultaneously critical and spiritual. I have long seen Jesus pretty much the way Mitchell sees him. (a wise and compassionate human being with no pretensions to specialness) But this book is a revelation; and such "good news" for those who admire Jesus and want to follow his path as decribed in the Sermon on the mount, and the parables of the Prodigal Son and the Good ...
The Gospel According to Jesus: What Is Authentic Faith?
One of the greatest MacArthur books
The Gospel According To Jesus was one of the first MacArthur books that I've read, and definitely one of the bests. I can see why it's considered a classic and was discussed in churches for decades after its release. As a whole, the book is a great overview on what true saving faith is. It's beautifully written, academic but not so esoteric that the average reader will not be able to ...
Unbinding the Gospel: Real Life Evangelism, 2nd Edition
Martha Grace Reese
Unbinding the Gospel Unbinds the Hidden Power in Church
For years I have observed as writer after writer have written tricks, techniques, programs, and virtually every other tool known to humankind to "grow" the church. Yet, after a year or two, they are gone, reality is back, and the reader and the church is right back where it started. THIS BOOK IS NOT THAT KIND OF BOOK! Reese makes it clear that Unbinding the Gospel is NOT about some special ...
A Gospel Primer for Christians: Learning to See the Glories of God's Love
Focus Publishing (MN)
Solid truth to stand on when the sand is swept out from under you
Snapshot: Quite a few things fall into the category of gifts that keep on giving- cameras, blenders, vaccinations, cookie cutters, and washable crayons. It may be redundant to claim that the gospel goes far beyond all those things and is in a category by itself, but it needs to be said. I remember a period in my Christian life where I just wanted to grow in the Lord so badly. I felt if i could ...
