In this collection of "parables" Rollins presents a vision of faith that has little regard for the institutions of Christendom. His uncompromising critique of religion, while often unsettling, is infused with a deep and abiding love for what it means to genuinely follow Christ.
Pete Rollins writes with clarity and compelling conviction." - Frank Schaeffer
“I remember driving around Belfast with Pete, sitting in the front seat listening to him tell these parables that he'd written—thinking, ‘Everybody needs to hear these.’ And now you can.”
—Rob Bell, author of Jesus Wants to Save Christians
More robust than the other Habitudes, this new book is filled with sixteen communication principles and images, to be read, discussed and applied as a team. Each chapter contains discussion questions as well as personal application and practical suggestions for you to use to develop your communication.
In the "Habitudes of an Effective Communicator" you will learn: How to captivate even young audiences with your message. How to walk listeners through the mental "seasons" of a presentation. How to feel poised from start to finish during your delivery. How to get your point across in a matter of minutes. How to engage people at the heart level and foster life-change. How to craft the stages of a message which will prepare listeners to act. How to motivate listeners to "own" your message.
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?
For over 2,000 years, philosophy has been our best guide to the experience of being human, and the true nature of reality.
From Aristotle, Plato, Epicurus, Confucius, Cicero and Heraclitus in ancient times to 17th century rationalists Descartes, Leibniz and Spinoza, from 20th-century greats Jean-Paul Sartre, Jean Baudrillard and Simone de Beauvoir to contemporary thinkers Michael Sandel, Peter Singer and Slavoj Zizek, 50 Philosophy Classics explores key writings that have shaped the discipline and had an impact on the real world.
Philosophy can no longer be confined to academia, and 50 Philosophy Classics shows how powerful it can be as a tool for opening our minds and helping us think. Whether you are fascinated or daunted by the big questions of how to think, how to be, how to act and how to see, this is the perfect introduction to some of humanity's greatest minds and their landmark books.
