Besides the fact that this book is written by a close friend and mentor of mine, Ret. Pastor Stan Grummet is someone who everyone could use a conversation with. He writes in an easily readable and accessible way, so you don't have to have a theological dictionary beside you while reading. It is understandable, and relevant, and you won't regret this book in your hands.
For millennia, people of many cultures and religions have looked to the Ten Commandments as the ultimate moral compass for life, a yardstick for measuring your success or failure as a human being, a checklist for predicting your prospects for eternity. What if life isn't about doing or not doing? What if life is about making the right choice, the right god choice, a choice that will determine the kind of life you live and the society you live that life in?
The Anthropocene is the current geologic age, in which humans have profoundly reshaped the planet and its biodiversity. In this remarkable symphony of essays adapted and expanded from his groundbreaking podcast, bestselling author John Green reviews different facets of the human-centred planet on a five-star scale—from the QWERTY keyboard and sunsets to Canada geese and Penguins of Madagascar.
Funny, complex, and rich with detail, the reviews chart the contradictions of contemporary humanity. As a species, we are both far too powerful and not nearly powerful enough, a paradox that came into sharp focus as we faced a global pandemic that both separated us and bound us together.
John Green’s gift for storytelling shines throughout this masterful collection. The Anthropocene Reviewed is an open-hearted exploration of the paths we forge and an unironic celebration of falling in love with the world.
The Cost of Discipleship compels the reader to face himself and God in any situation. Bonhoeffer speaks of "Cheap Grace": preaching forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, communion without confession. "Cheap Grace" is grace without discipleship. "Costly Grace" is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the gift which must be asked for, the door at which a man must knock. "It's costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life."
Sick of religion? So was Jesus.
In this expanded edition of the bestselling The End of Religion, Bruxy Cavey asks: Has Christianity missed the point? Was Jesus setting up a new religion or abolishing the entire concept? Have Christians gotten faith in Jesus pretty much right--or all wrong?
Thoroughly revised and updated, The End of Religion now includes five entirely new chapters by the author, a new preface, and updates throughout. Join Bruxy Cavey in a dynamic, breath-taking investigation into what Jesus was all about. Find out how twenty-first-century people can live into the subversive spirituality of Jesus.
Jesus lived a scandalous life. Shouldn't we?
