In this provocative book, Stevens writes the clergy-laity division has no basis in the New Testament and challenges all Christians to rediscover what it means to live daily as God's people. Exploring the theological, structural and cultural reasons for treating laypeople as the objects of ministry, Stevens argues against the idea of clericalism and in favor of equipping people for ministry in their homes, workplaces and neighborhoods.

A book of religious reflections which asks how we approach the other six days of the week, after the Eucharist. Do we behave like our hands with a hand-warmer: briefly warmed and then expected to remain hot for the whole week? The author's answer is neatly presented in five meditative chapters - Prayer, Stability, Almsgiving, Light and Morality - as he sets out the sort of life that he believes we should lead during the rest of the week, keeping alive the warmth of the Eucharist.

* The translation complements the highly acclaimed Latin text edition of the Hexaemeron by Dales and Gieben.Grosseteste is a crucially important figure in the history of English learning, representing the last flowering of a fully native tradition of scholarship. His Hexaemeron is rare amongst works of this period in giving such a wide and deep insight into the medieval world view.A work of Grosseteste's early maturity (probably completed around 1235) it is a commentary on the early chapters of Genesis, on the six days of Creation, and gives him a context for expounding his attitude to theology, to the world, and to the place of human beings in that world.It is a masterly compilation and reconciliation of conflicting Greek and Latin authorities, handled with great confidence, which gives a supremely rich account of the unity of medieval learning, where the study of God includes the study of the whole world.

Discover how many evangelical leaders, willingly or unwittingly, are undermining the authority of God's Word by compromising the Bible in Genesis Learn how allowing for an old/universe of billions of years unlocks a door of compromise Heed the wake-up call to the Church to return to the authority of God's Word, beginning in Genesis. Today, most Bible colleges, seminaries, K-12 Christian schools, and now even parts of the homeschool movement do not accept the first eleven chapters of Genesis as literal history. They try to fit the supposed billions of years into Genesis, and some teach evolution as fact. Our churches are largely following suit. Ken Ham, international speaker and author on biblical authority, examines how compromise starting in Genesis, particularly in regard to the six days of creation and the earth's age, have filtered down from the Bible colleges and seminaries to pastors—and finally to parents and their children. This erosive legacy is seen in generations of young people leaving the Church—2/3 of them. Get the facts, discover God's truth, and help bring a new reformation to the Church by helping to call it back to the authority of God's Word.

Police sergeant Tim Packard is a man known for getting things done. When a new police chief is appointed, Packard heads up a new task force designed to cut down recent drug trafficking in a Central Indiana city. The attention of his new task force is quickly diverted, however, when a group of terrorists invades his city. Wreaking havoc, the terrorists set out to randomly murder citizens, poison the water supply, and blow up key buildings. When Packard discovers one of the terrorists might have a link to one of his officers, things only grow worse. Forced to decide where to place his loyalty, and whom to trust, the sergeant realizes the fate of his city rests almost entirely on his shoulders. Not a man who plays by the rules, Packard puts the safety of others and his reputation ahead of everything else. He and his men do whatever it takes to bring criminals to justice, and decide to use their own brand of justice against the terrorists. Outgunned, outnumbered, and seemingly one step behind the terrorists at all times, the task force members use their knowledge of their city, investigative experience, and a few dirty tricks to track their new enemies. Unsure of whom to trust, Packard ultimately withdraws himself from a group of emergency personnel formed to stop the terrorists, much to the dismay of his superiors. Deciding to place complete trust in his own group, and his knack for getting jobs done, he risks everything to save the city in which he has lived his entire life. Should he fail, thousands could die, and if he succeeds, it may be at the cost of his own career.
