Colleges and Universities do not offer courses or degrees in wisdom and Governments do not have departments of wisdom to guide the actions and decisions of presidents and government officials. Due to a lack of wisdom, Federal, State and Local governments have pushed many nations to the brink of moral and financial bankruptcy. A heavy dependence upon academia is not sufficient for them to make wise decisions. In our society many marriages fail and families suffer because they lack wisdom. Unwise financial decisions in our government and among individual citizens negatively affect many in our society. There are many pitfalls in society and living life is like walking through a minefield of life changing and difficult decisions. The Young Person's Guide to wisdom fills the void of wisdom that exists in academia, our families and our government. Wisdom is presented in the context of knowing God's will, being successful, being proactive in your education, finances, relationships, redemption and our understanding of God and his Word. It is an excellent resource for new Christians and Christian Parents and their children to build a wise foundation in Christ. It is a straight forward Biblical Guide to understanding the God of the Bible and God's instructions to us concerning Wisdom. Jeff Claiborne is a Christian author who has twenty years of experience in law enforcement. Jeff began writing about scripture after thirty five years of intensely studying the Bible. Jeff has dedicated his life to studying the scriptures and teaching others and has been married to his wife Marie for 26 years and is a grandparent having successfully raised three children.

R. Douglas Wardrop believes that most books describing Christianity are filled with errors and are boring. This book is biblically accurate and is never boring! It uses strong graphics and colorful presentations combined with simple language. It is also fairly short and can be read through quickly. A Young Person's Guide to Christianity provides a fairly complete description of Christianity, and will appeal to young people from about seven years old to late teens. The book guides them on how to become born again Christians. Key Christianity beliefs are defined and important questions are answered in a way that is biblically accurate. The Greatness of God is described in two ways: 1) Using items such as a bowling ball, grass, sand, and a mustard seed, strong image ideas are given to show how vast God's creation is. 2) Using scientific information for distances within our solar system, the time taken for the fastest jet airliner and light to traverse these distances is shown (in a strong graphical way). These distances begin with the distance from New York to London, and end with the distance from the Earth to the sun. Again the aim is to show how vast is God's creation. God's main promises to you are given, with the main aim to make these promises real and personal to you. A Young Person's Guide to Christianity defines how you can begin your Christian life and a prayer for this is included.

Whenever we read, think, hear or say anything about God, we are doing theology. Yet theology isn't just a matter of what we think. It affects who we are. In the tradition of Helmut Thielicke's A Little Exercise for Young Theologians, Kelly Kapic offers a concise introduction to the study of theology for newcomers to the field. He highlights the value and importance of theological study and explains its unique nature as a serious discipline. Not only concerned with content and method, Kapic explores the skills, attitudes and spiritual practices needed by those who take up the discipline. This brief, clear and lively primer draws out the relevance of theology for Christian life, worship, mission, witness and more. "Theology is about life," writes Kapic. "It is not a conversation our souls can afford to avoid."

Spirituality for Adults

Growing out of two decades of teaching and practice, Finding God Again: Spirituality for Adults addresses, in an experiential and pastoral way, the need to re-envision God as we grow from an adolescent to adult spirituality. John Shea, a renowned pastoral counselor and teacher, shows how we can lose touch with religion, spirituality, and a belief in God because of times when our image of God is too narrow, unreal, or inadequate to make sense of our experience. Shea uses real life stories to illustrate and offer a life-changing challenge to leave behind the Superego God of childhood in favor of a Living God we can relate to as adults. By showing the reader how to revisit God as an adult, Shea provides the motivation and method to embrace a Living God and claim the independence and responsibility that accompany genuine adulthood.

God is not a bigger version of your earthly father. When you hear the word “father,” do you think of someone who is loving…or angry? Someone who is pleased with you…or constantly disappointed? Someone who is always available…or someone who is too busy, preoccupied, or distant? When you think of “Father God,” what images come to mind? Regardless of the type of father you grew up with—or without—it is likely that your view of God is influenced by the relationship you had with your father. Author John Bishop wants to help you discover that God is not just like your dad. Instead, God is the Father revealed in Scripture, where the truth is clear. God is a father who is: • always there • up close and personal • fully pleased • in complete control • completely safe Filled with biblical insight and practical tools for reflection, healing, and restoration, God Distorted will enable you to break free from the lies of the enemy and see your heavenly Father as He truly is.

Life Is Never Mainly About Love and Marriage. So Learn to Live and Date for More. Many of you grew up assuming that marriage would meet all of your needs and unlock God’s purposes for you. But God has far more planned for you than your future marriage. Not Yet Married is not about waiting quietly in the corner of the world for God to bring you “the one,” but about inspiring you to live and date for more now. If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of the perfect person, but a pursuit of more of God. He will likely write a love story for you different than the one you would write for yourself, but that’s because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. This book was written to help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.

Revised & Updated Edition! God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. Have you ever wondered if we're missing it? It's crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe—the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor—loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you've verbalized it yet or not, we all know something's wrong. Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn't working harder at a list of do's and don'ts—it's falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you're wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

$10.95 cloth hardcover · 1-58685-190-X 5 x 7 in, 112 pp, Rights: W, Self-Help Originally published by the author in 1972, the underground classic Lazy Man's Guide to Enlightenment teaches how to improve the quality of life, to feel good, and to determine what's real. Golas leads the reader down the path toward enlightenment with simple steps, like memorizing key phrases and incorporating them into daily life and thought. Think of how much better your life might be if you reminded yourself to "love as much as you can from wherever you are" or "love it the way it is." This classic book is full of useful tips on how to live a more conscious life and to be an engaged and aware member of the universal community. "While we have humility and pride enough to act on the knowledge that we exist in an infinite harmony, that we are neither greater nor lesser than any others, we can enjoy exquisite spiritual wealth and pleasures. When you love yourself, you are in truth expanding in love into many other things. And the more loving you are, the more loving the beings within and around you. On all levels we are mutually dependent vibrations. Play a happy tune and happy dancers will join your trip." - From The Lazy Man's Guide to Enlightenment After serving in World War II, author Thaddeus Golas graduated from Columbia College in New York. He later moved to San Francisco, where he became involved in the activism and spiritual quests of the 1960s. He was an editor of Redbook magazine and a book representative for publisher Harper and Row.
