Unfortunately, in today's world many people fail to experience the freedom and healing power of God's grace. Even Christians too often experience judgement, rather than the love that is the vital essence of Christian life. A visionary guide in the spirit of Celebration of Discipline, Embracing the Love of God calls Christians back to the basics -- to understanding the promise of God's love to transform our most important relationships and fulfill our deepest spiritual needs.Here James Bryan Smith launches readers on a revitalizing spiritual journey. He distills the basic principles of Christian love and provides a new model for relationship with God, self, and others that is based not on fear and judgement, but rather on acceptance and care. Smith's moving insights illuminate the gentle nature of God's love and teach readers how to continue on the path of love by embracing it day by day. For both new Christians and those desiring renewal, Embracing the Love of God offers hope, peace, and guidance for spiritual growth.

One of Christianity Today's 2003 Books of the Year! We give ourselves to God and then struggle profoundly with the relationship. We are drawn in and then want to flee in fear. We move from faith to doubt, trust to confusion, intimacy to a feeling of abandonment. Coming to faith is like falling in love. It can be a head-over-heels rush to the altar or a slow acceptance that slips into a heartfelt embrace. Either way, eventually romance crashes headlong into reality. Often we make things worse either by feeling guilty about our struggles with doubt or by trying to dismiss them as unimportant or insignificant. We may even become resentful that God does not simply step in to clear up our confusion.When we find ourselves in any of these predicaments, the only way out is to face our uncertainties about God--deliberately and directly.In Embracing the Mysterious God James Emery White explores these struggles we all face--struggles of heart, soul, mind and strength. And struggles to love our neighbors as ourselves. Here you will find your tough questions about God addressed. Better still, you will find the way to renewed faith.

Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament brings together commentary features rarely gathered in one volume. Written by notable evangelical scholars, each volume treats the literary context and structure of the passage in the original Greek, and each author provides an original translation based on the literary structure. The series consistently provides the main point, an exegetical outline, verse-by-verse commentary, and theology in application in each section of every commentary. Critical scholarship informs each step but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author’s message as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find these books beneficial. The Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series covers the entire New Testament in twenty volumes; Clinton E. Arnold serves as general editor. 1-3 John In her commentary on John’s letters, Karen H. Jobes writes to bridge the distance between academic biblical studies and pastors, students, and laypeople who are looking for an in-depth treatment of the issues raised by these New Testament books. She approaches the three letters of John as part of the corpus that includes John’s gospel, while rejecting an elaborate redactional history of that gospel that implicates the letters. Jobes treats three major themes of the letters under the larger rubric of who has the authority to interpret the true significance of Jesus, an issue that is pressing in our religiously pluralistic society today with its many voices claiming truth about God.

“From the Lowest River Valley to the Highest Mountain Peak” shows how the Mohler (Malberg) family walks out the Torah, God’s Teaching and Instruction. From an auto accident to a fall at a vacation cottage to pneumonia, Adonai brought Susan and Taavi from tragedies to victories. Along the way, the Mohlers were strengthened spiritually and physically. Yeshua provided all the income and financial blessings that the family needed along the way. All of these adventures started in June of 2013 when the Mohlers joined Relationship Enrichment Center, Beit Tikkun, House of Restoration. Rabbi/Pastor Hector and Evelyn Gomez, Sarah and Jeremy Gomez and other parishioners accepted the Mohler family with open arms. Rachel Mohler first attended R.E.C. The focus of R.E.C. congregation and Rabbi Hector and Evelyn Gomez’ ministry is finding the “Hebrew Roots of the Christian Faith”. From the ‘Statement of Faith’’ (Rabbi Gomez): “The congregation believes that Yeshua is the Son of God, the Messiah. He is the Word Who became flesh and dwelt among us.” [John 1: 1-14] Rabbi Hector and Pastor Evelyn were excited at the “Betrothal” of their daughter Sarah and Alex McCarthy. The ceremony took place at R.E.C. on Pastor Evelyn’s birthday in 2014. Also, the betrothal took place on the “Feast of Tabernacles” eve. Another celebration took place later in the month of June: Eric, the eldest Gomez son, married Katrina in a Messianic Marriage Ceremony at R.E.C. Rabbi Hector presided over the ceremony.
