The Old Testament: Our Call to Faith and Justice is geared toward an introductory class in Scripture. This textbook has been found in conformity with The Catechism of the Catholic Church and can serve as an ancillary or primary text for Course I or Elective Course A of the USCCB curriculum framework. The Old Testament: Our Call to Faith and Justice covers the remarkable journey of God s Chosen People and their journey in Scripture. As with any relationship, the divine-human one described in theOld Testament has dramatic episodes of jealousy and angry disappointment, but also shows moments of moving love, compassion, and forgiveness. The Jewish people forged an intimate relationship with God that was brought tofullness in the coming of God s Son, Jesus Christ. This text also includesa Catholic Handbook for Faith, an appendix section with a wealth of information to help students review material they have covered in other religion courses.

Cyber Worship In Multifaith Perspectives

Cyber Worship in Multifaith Perspectives, as is implied by its name, explores worship (i.e., Prayer, Praise, Scripture, Sacrament, Rituals, Confessions, Eucharist, Rites, Pilgrimages, Reflection, Contemplation, etc.) on the Internet. It is not an "everything you need to know" guide about the subjects of faith and belief, religions-online, religions on the Net, or religions in cyberspace. Rather, it is a book about religious and spiritual experience under the rubric, cyber worship, which is the variety of ways religious devotion is performed and carried out on the Internet. The term 'Cyber Worship' is a catchall phrase, which includes variants such as online worship, virtual worship, electronic prayer, cyber puja, cyber synagogue, and so on. Dr. Mohamed Taher has thus assembled a quick reference for two groups: those communities that are involved in Cyber Worship and business Webs that collaborate in sustaining wired environments. As such, this book provides an interesting and current perspective on a practice that will continue to grow in the future.

Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. "Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." -Romans 1:32 ...There are five things out of this text that we would like to look at by the grace of God. First of all our text teaches us that men have an inner knowledge from God of the reality of sin. Second it teaches us that men have a consciousness that God must hate and judge and punish sin. Third it tells us that men persist in the ways of sin in spite of the warning of their own natural conscience. Fourth, our text tells us that men come to the point where they condone, they approve, then aid and rejoice in sin in others. And then last, but I think the most damning, it teaches us that men come to the place where they are the supporters of sin; they are the supporters of the vices of other men and themselves rather than the righteousness of God!...

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being sinful and worthless and 10 being absolutely perfect and righteous, how do you rate yourself, really? On that same scale, how does God rate you? The Alpha Series is a systematic study of all that God has done to make you a 10 and a course on how you can begin to see yourself the way God sees you. Knowing what God thinks about us gives us a choice in what we are going to believe about ourselves. Believing what God says he made us to be allows us the hope we need to cope with life. The joyful, confident expectation about our own future gives us the liberty to care about others. The Alpha Series may be used as a counseling model, a discipleship course, a faith based recovery tool, and a training curriculum. Along with the companion workbook it is suitable as basic curricula for all types of study groups and recovery programs.

All of our attempts to find the historical backgrounds to texts have led us to believe that we have "figured out" the Bible. Steering a course between modernity's obsession with historical readings and fundamentalism's compulsion for ahistorical readings, Christopher Seitz recovers a figural/typological approach to both the Old and New Testament that shapes a theological understanding of Scripture. Figured Out examines the loss of figural assumptions and models another way forward.

Grace A Free Ride To Heaven

Definitions of grace identify one's religious affiliation in Christendom and one's attitude toward Bible content. This book gives the theological development of the word and presents evidence that the word does not mean "unmerited." Further, it is shown that to ignore this is to misinterpret Jesus' mission and reject the loving grace that He provides to us from His Father and our Judge.
