"Prayer changes things" according to the old clich`. But what things, and how? Engaging with biblical texts on prayer, Rob Ellis finds valuable guidance on the contents of prayer, as well as evidence of early wrestling with its problems. He also reviews the works of leading historical theologians such as Origen, Augustine, Aquinas and Calvin before asking how the question "Who is God?" connects with our thinking about intercession. Concluding with a Trinitarian theology of intercession that draws on the work of Karl Barth, Answering God will be of interest to church ministers, leaders and students of theology.

If you are breathing, thinking, talking, walking, hoping, dreaming, expecting, believing. . . . If you are moving in any shape, form, or fashion, this book is for you. If you have ever been challenged by jobs, people and their peculiar ways, this book is for you. You are on a journey just as I have been. Answering God's Wake-up Call (2013) chronicles 100 days of my journey with the Holy Spirit - a journey that landed me in Antigua. Shared with readers are events, days, prayers, poems, thoughts that represent a very real walk with God. An emphasis is placed on obedience and listening for God and to God. This book picks up in some ways where Yes, God, I'm Listening (2002) left off. As we all know, it is one thing to listen - it is many times more important to be obedient. And we are called to tell others of our experiences. When you get the wake-up call, what will you do? Hit the snooze and roll over? It's a journey! Don't miss the call!! This book is for you. From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, His name is to be praised. Regina Vincent Clark,Ed.D., says she felt called or sent to Antigua, West Indies in 2010 – the same time that she began formally documenting journal entries which, within a year, would become the basis for this book. Dr. Clark’s experience of employment and community outreach were as much a part of her journey as the personal relationships formed with individuals in Antigua and her eye-opening experience of coming to know the Holy Spirit as a person, a friend, a guide, and a dependable confidante. ....The life story is clearly a testimony that where God guides, He provides many opportunities to us to be used as a Blessing to others. Louise ......Excellent testimony!! Always remember, there are no bad days in CHRIST, >only opportunities to grow your faith. Keep studying and be encouraged. Minister Jerry ......Thanks for sharing your spiritual journey . . . It was just what I needed with my morning cup of tea! Victoria> .......I can relate to everything you wrote. From the challenges of my job . . . .to recognizing the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life, leading, guiding, nurturing me. Muriel

The Body Broken is an honest and moving meditation on the Gospel imperative to love one another as brothers and sisters, even as we choose to live and express our faith in differing ways. A lifelong Christian and seeker, Robert Benson has shared the prayers, rituals, conversations, and practices of many different denominations. His broad range of ecumenical experiences have led to moments of great joy and deep fellowship, but they have also opened his eyes to the misunderstanding and the intolerance that constantly threaten to dismember the whole Body of Christ. Benson writes longingly about the things of the faith that bind us together and gracefully about the things that keep us apart. He recounts his own journey from Nazarene to Methodist to Episcopalian and introduces us to the people and the differing expressions of faith he encountered along the way. We meet ordinary folk, including Benson's family and childhood friends, as well as legendary religious thinkers as Henri Nouwen. Some of the stories--particularly the ones about his own brother's suicide--are heartbreakingly painful; others bring to light the joy and grace of Christian love as found in acts of common worship and compassion. Although Benson acknowledges that there are--and always will be--very real differences in the ways that Christians seek to live out their faith, he reminds us of the essential beliefs that we share about God and our common dependency on God's mysterious mercy and grace, even as we look for God as through a glass darkly. In poetic prose that is reminiscent of the writing of Frederick Buechner and Annie Dillard, Benson illuminates, with wit and wisdom and humility and passion, one of the most difficult challenges that face the Church. The Body Broken is a powerful, important examination of the intolerance and divisiveness that have become an all too familiar part of the Church and a gentle, poignant call for a Christian community that embraces a spirit of love and unity even as it honors our differences.

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:19–20). “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me” (Isaiah 6:8). How do you know God has called you into the ministry? How can you really tell in which area of the ministry he wants you to serve? For many, these can be frustrating and confusing questions. In Answering and Understanding the CALL of God for Your Life, author Chinyere Nwakwue provides guidance in responding to God’s call for your life and your life’s ministry. Blending her personal experiences with a plethora of scriptural examples, Nwakwue walks you through the process and shows how this calling is a privilege God has given you. In her study, she considers the factors involved in God’s calling; the reasons that some people struggle with the call of God; the Bible characters who struggled with answering God’s call; the reasons that God called you; the enemies of Christian life who will try to interrupt God’s call; and ways to overcome the enemies. Nwakwue communicates that your response to the call of God has significant effects in your life as you run your Christian race. Christ Jesus has called and commanded every individual to preach the gospel to all creatures. Are you ready?
