Every day it seems more difficult to explain to others what we believe and why. When our arguments fail to persuade them, what then? J. P. Moreland and Tim Muehlhoff say that the best way to win over others is with a good story. In this expanded edition of their classic book, the authors give practical coaching and illustrations to help us communicate our faith more effectively.
From the beginning of time, God has spoken to people in their dreams. Through them he has reached out to both men of God—Isaiah, Daniel, Jeremiah, Jacob, and his dream interpreter son, Joseph—and ungodly men and women, like Pharaoh or Pontius Pilate’s wife. Even today, God has not stopped speaking to us in our dreams. We simply stopped listening or being aware of Him. More than twenty years ago, after God woke him up one night with an incredible dream, author Manny Fernandez set off on a lifelong journey to explore what could be learned from dreams. He made it his mission to teach others how to remember their dreams and, with God’s help, interpret their meaning. In his guidebook, Fernandez includes his own diary of dreams, associated Scriptures and explanations, ways to remember and understand God’s special messages, an examination of parables, and his ideas for connecting with God through dreams and prayer. Wake Up—God’s Talking to You is an innovative teaching tool that guides spiritual seekers through all the ways God speaks to us through dreams and brings us closer to Him.

• Established resource series for church groups and individual use • An expert in church renewal takes the opportunity to approach the series in a fresh, new fashion It has been said that we are called not only to read Scripture but to let Scripture read us. In that spirit, this book will guide readers into conversation with Paul’s letter to the Romans. The author will help us listen to what that letter said to the people to whom it was written and to hear what it says to us today. Readers will bring their own reflections, personal concerns, and questions to the table as we let this letter challenge us with meaning—letting it read the reader. The thesis of this book is that the letter has demonstrated transforming power to renew lives and the church through a focus on worship; a rigorous assessment of the human condition, especially the failure of human religiosity; a claim of transforming power in the ongoing life of Christ; an expansive vision of who is included in God’s life and love; a call to practical application and proclamation of the gospel.

Neale Donald Walsch didn't claim to be special or spiritually gifted. He was just a frustrated man who sat down one day with pen in his hand and some tough questions in his heart. As he wrote his questions to God, he realized that God was answering them--directly--through Walsch's pen. And the result was a series of witty, provocative, and profound books that have changed the lives of readers around the world. Here in one handsome volume are the second two books in the Conversations with God series. In Conversations with God 2, Neale Donald Walsch and God continue their discussion and move on to larger topics than the personal issues addressed in Conversations with God 1. The pair discusses time, space, politics, and even kinky sex. It is an honest look at some of the broad issues important to all of us on the planet. In Conversations with God 3, final book of the original three-book series, "universal truths of the highest order, and the challenges and opportunities of the soul." In this volume, the dialogue expands to include more about the nature of God, about love and fear, about who we are and who we may become. Here is also a profound dialogue about the culture, philosophy, and spirituality of highly evolved beings (some of whom we presently call "aliens" or "ETs") in other realms of the universe and how they have learned to view life, love and the pursuit of happiness.
All revivals were preceded by much prayer. We need a revival in this country, and we need more people to pray. We tell people that they need a close relationship with God, but we don’t tell them how to develop this relationship. Find out how to get your prayers higher than the ceiling and how to hear from God himself. God spoke to people in the Bible, and He still wants to speak to his people today.
Why a theology of prayer? Because counterfeit prayer abounds, we need Scripture's guidance, writes Thomas Constable. Praying as God desires requires considering what God has revealed about it. As we give prayer our careful attention, we gain greater understanding of what he intends it to be. Constable details the different forms of communication God invites us to use. He identifies the counterfeits that pass for prayer, discusses the conditional nature of prayer, and explains why some prayers seem to go unanswered.
