Dr. Moody offers a compelling (and sometimes humorous) call to live a joyful, hopeful life as a Christian and as a Citizen, even when dealing with myriad personal problems, discouraging political division, and global challenges such as recession, pandemic, or even war. Basing his encouragement out of a fresh reading of Paul’s Epistle to the Philippians, this experienced pastor, parent, and scholar invites you to draw inspiration from this ancient letter for our living in the modern, often chaotic and confusing world. These short essays on Christian living will bless you and make you a stronger, wiser person.
What Life as a Christian Really Looks Like New believers need to know what to expect. While many books cover the nuts and bolts of new faith--how to read the Bible, how to pray, how to find a church--in this book, Alex Early focuses on issues of the heart. What are Christians supposed to feel? What happens when they sin? What does God want from them? Designed to challenge and reassure, this book gives a realistic depiction of the Christian life, and includes such topics as how to rest in God's love, what forgiveness looks like when you blow it, what it means to find your identity in Christ, and how to pray with honesty and transparency. God isn't surprised when we struggle, and although being in a relationship with God is amazing, he never promised that this life would be easy. He can handle "real" people, and he pours out his reckless love regardless of what we do or think on any given day. We all need to be reminded of this, but especially those new to the faith. This book is ideal for new believers, but seasoned Christians should also have copies on hand to give away. Includes end-of-chapter questions and a "Christianese to English" glossary.

This book is about finding and interpreting those "clues." Works of literature alluded to include, among others, Spenser's The Faerie Queene, Dante's Inferno and Milton's Paradise Lost. Events in history alluded to include the slavery issue of Jane Austen's day, the American Revolution, the Battle of Actium, the Battle of Trafalgar and the then-looming War of 1812.

"'Jesus instructed us to forgive those who have wronged us seventy times seven times,' Brother Vito Fortunato teaches the boys in his high school religion class, but it's Vito himself who has the most trouble with forgiveness: trying to forgive the Church, the gay community, and most of all, himself. Just a few months from his final vows as a Brother in the Catholic Church, Vito finds himself at a crossroads, torn between his spirituality and his sexuality as a fully out and proud gay man. Will a summer of volunteer work at an AIDS center in San Francisco--and a love affair with Gabriel, a recently divorced landscaper--help Vito decide his calling--and his future?"--Page 4 of cover.
Focusing on the "ontological indwelling of God" as the basis and ground of the soul, the author expounds its capacity for spiritual experience, which he describes metaphorically as "being with Christ in paradise." Aspects of mystical experience are briefly discussed, an extended description of the author's own experience is presented, and practical suggestions are offered to the reader for his or her own spiritual enrichment.
