Everything the Bible has to say about the Gospel is simply an exposition of its central message: Jesus Christ lived and died to save sinners. The Gospel is about him, and it answers Jesus’ key question: ´´Who do you say that I am?” It is good news. In Good News: The Gospel of Jesus Christ, Dr. John MacArthur examines the Bible’s revelation of Christ and encourages Christians with the vast implications of all that Christ accomplished for them. This is a book to rekindle love and awe for the Savior. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Parks. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hove/003488/bk_hove_003488_sample.mp3.

Remarkable studies in the New Testament have recovered the fact that the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ, was apocalyptic good news--God´s redemptive action within history. Today, for more and more people, the sheer scope of an evolutionary universe renders life on Earth as utterly insignificant, religion as nothing more than superstition. And now, in the Anthropocene, we on the pale blue dot live in an apocalyptic age in which cataclysmic issue after cataclysmic issue threaten the future of the planet. The faith of the early church was in an apocalyptic cosmic Christ unleashing within history God´s good news of a new creation. Set within the world as we now know it, this gives meaning to the cosmos and life wherever it is found around any star. Screened from view for over a millennium during mission to non-apocalyptic cultures, now is the time for a new paradigm for church, the ´´´´apocalyptic church´´´´ for an apocalyptic age to replace the denominational church. What a difference this makes to faith, worship, and the role of the church in an apocalyptic future. ´´´´It´s time! Dean Drayton argues that it is time to recognize that the Christian faith must express itself through a recovery of an apocalyptic gospel. It is time to come to terms with our place in an ever-expanding universe and the threats posed by the Anthropocene. It is no longer sufficient to fall back on understandings of an Enlightenment-derived self and a denominational Christ.´´´´ --Clive Pearson, United Theological College ´´´´Dean Drayton has written a monumental, extraordinary work.

CURSED... Living at her family’s rice plantation, Alice Wharton learns some disturbing news from her mother: their bloodline has been cursed. Jesus Christ punishes them for having psychic powers allegedly stolen from a heavenly angel. He exacts penance in the form of the mother’s adulterous ´´communion” trysts with their reverend. FORGOTTEN... Escaping from the predatory reverend, Alice marries Major Thorne Norwick at his Georgian cotton plantation. She also meets the slave cooks, Jonah and Eliza, who show her how to telepathically eject troubling memories. When Thorne returns from fighting in the War of Northern Aggression, Alice uses this skill to hide from herself the devastating revelation that her husband now seems to serve Christ. After all, he aids a secret society - the Ku Klux Klan - that uses the symbols of her tormentor. JUDGED. Everywhere she looks, the specter of Christ stands in judgment. What’s more, a mysterious presence stalks her, its mind echoing with thoughts that feel all too familiar. When it reaches her, there will be hell to pay. 1. Language: English.

Join one of the top Catholic preachers and Bible study leaders in America in exploring what it means to truly experience the Gospel in your own life. In this series, you will explore what it really means to know, that is, to experience, the new life that Christ has given us through his death. With Msgr. Pope, you will consider how to grasp this life more deeply and experience how the lord ministers to us in our lives through his word, the Sacraments, and the sacred liturgy. See how the word of God does not merely inform, but also performs. Our lord Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose for us. In so doing, he has not only cleansed us from our sins by his precious blood, but has also made available for us an entirely new life by the power of his cross. St. Paul says, if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation, the old things are passed away, behold, all things are made new (2 Cor. 5:17). This is not just a slogan. St. Paul is describing a reality that he and the early Christians actually experienced. He is describing the normal Christian life. More than a Bible study or a series of sermons, these talks were crafted to fully engage your heart, mind and spirit to help you experience life to the fullest. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Msgr.

Understand, this book is not written to make you feel bad or condemn you if you have not engaged others with the gospel message. This book is written to encourage and inspire you. Even though pastor and author Greg Laurie is a gospel-presenting professional, in this book he tells stories of his own failure and success. The most important things you will find here are biblical principles that you can apply yourself. Taken from the life and witness of Jesus, and tested over Greg´s 40 years of ministry in both one-on-one experiences and large-scale evangelistic arena and stadium events, these ideas are intended to mobilize every person in the church to Tell Someone about Jesus Christ. 1.
