The Christian gospel, says Brueggemann, is too easily preached and heard. Too often technical reason and excessive religious certitude reduce the gospel to coercive, debilitating pietisms that mask the text's meaning and freeze the hearers heart. With skill and imagination, Brueggemann demonstrates how the preacher can engage in daring speech?differently voiced and therefore differently heard. This speech, as suggested by the Bible itself, is "poetic" speech, enabling the preacher to forge communion in the midst of alienation, bring healing out of guilt, and empower the hearer for "missional imagination." As an alternative to theological/homiletical discourse that is moralistic, pietistic or scholastic, Brueggemann proposes preaching that is artistic, poetic, and dramatic. The basis for the 1989 Lyman Beecher Lectures at Yale Divinity School, Finally Comes the Poet is a unique and transforming guide for powerful preaching.

Eight gospel-centered strategies for overcoming the lure of pornography and finally breaking free. This book is not about pornography. You won't find graphic depictions about the porn industry, the catastrophic effects it has on individuals and relationships, or how to think differently about porn. If you're reading this book, you probably have some understanding of those things already—the last thing you need is to be subjected to that kind of detail...again. Finally Free is about hope. It's about discovering the freeing power available to those who trust in Jesus Christ, who can, will, and does set people free from the power of pornography. Dr. Heath Lambert, a leader in the biblical counseling movement, has organized this book around eight clear and practical tactics you can wield to make it easier to flee lust and temptation and shelter in the protection of God's grace. Each chapter: Clearly demonstrates how the gospel applies to the fight against sexual temptation. Lays out relevant methods for leaning on Christ's strength—both in advance of and in moments of temptation. Explains how Jesus can move readers from a life of struggle to a life of purity. If you've struggled personally against the powerful draw of pornography, or if you've ever tried to help someone fighting this battle, you know how hard it is to break its bonds. But there is good news: no matter how intense or long-standing the struggle, Jesus Christ has the power to free people from the enslaving power of pornography. The Gospel has a power that works practically in the lives of those who seek to imitate Christ—and you can learn how to live into that power.

I should have never agreed… But it was only one ride.... Besides, I was way overdue for a little excitement. A middle aged, overworked single mom barely keeping my head above water, I'm hardly living my best life. He's a rough around the edges biker who can't be anything but trouble, and he's looking at me as if I'm the sexiest woman alive. Maybe I shouldn't have said yes, but I needed a ride home. And he offered. On two conditions: Hold on. Let go. It was dangerous, but I was due for a little danger, and when he touched me…all bets were off. I would climb on the back of his bike every night for the rest of my life if he'd make me feel that way again. And again. He lights up every part of me. Even my heart. But I don’t know anything about him. And when I find out… Everything changes because I no longer know who or what to trust anymore. And if I don’t figure it out soon, I will lose everything.

It’s probably a bad idea. No, it’s definitely a bad idea. Just over forty years old, and I’ve always managed just fine without a relationship—even a fake one, thank you very much. My mother taught me well—love is nothing but a myth and it certainly doesn’t pay the bills. My career has always been my focus, and it hasn’t let me down yet. But when my friends challenge me to have a little sexy fun with their silly go-for-it pact, I can’t seem to stop myself from asking the playboy billionaire CEO, Trent Thomas to play along. Sinfully sexy, the man sends thrills through me with only the tiniest touch. Imagine what could happen behind closed doors! Of course, he’s game to help me out, with one condition… I must agree to listen to him—whatever that means. It’s not long before I find out exactly what that means and my carefully constructed Ice Queen walls begin to melt with the heat of our little no-strings arrangement. I’m going to have to work overtime to keep them in place. After all, without those walls to protect me, I might have to finally face what I’ve been hiding from all these years. Maybe my mother was wrong. Maybe love isn’t just a myth. Maybe there's more. But if there is, do I really want it? And even if I do…does he?

Finally Broken is born out of personal experiences-from child abuse, spousal abuse, multiple marriages, and addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs-that author Rena Montford encountered throughout her lifetime. Never admitting to having it all together, but using her own personal struggle as a way for readers to relate, Rena's book invites readers to bring order to their own existence by inviting God's control over every segment of their lives. The content is raw and honest, and offers help and hope to those who wonder if they have out-sinned God's grace, or if their life circumstances have set them aside from being used by God. Is there a way back? Having reached the point of being Finally Broken, God has inspired the writing of Rena's life so that those who do not know Him in the fullness of His power might believe and trust Him when all other resources they sought have failed.

Finally Freed is the true story of a young girl under the control of a man 13 years her senior. Tammie came into this world as a child of innocence. In only a few moments that innocence was shattered and stripped away by those she trusted most. After the violent rape at age 12, she realized that love and security were sacred and only for the privileged. She did not feel privileged. She felt tainted by her rapists, who made threats against her family if she told. As her self-esteem plummeted, she was left vulnerable to a master manipulator, Kevin. He gained control over her and her parents when Tammie was only 15 years old. Ultimately, he led her far away from the ones she loved. She lived a sheltered, abusive existence for 12 long years. In that remote desert, she frequently prayed for a way of escape. Being 1500 miles from home couldn't stand in her way! She had to learn how to be a real warrior, to fight, and win that battle against him. Even through all the physical abuse, continuously scornful insults, and humiliations from Kevin, God protected her. She found comfort in God's presence. She could hear His voice when Kevin left her alone on that hill. As the winds howled past the house on that vacant lot, God never left her side. Within herself, Tammie found a unique type of calm that took anything remotely good and made it appear inconceivably beautiful. She knew that the little girl inside her, the one who Kevin took away from her family, was still there. He believed that he owned her, but the truth is he never did.

This poetry book is a mixture of emotions, frustration, feelings and above all a dedication to literature which many people nowadays have forgotten or have overlooked. I can’t say that I am very well versed in literature myself as I still have long way to go but I know I love literature because it has given me a way to express, a very shy person by nature I never really liked standing out. So this book may just be a way for me to get in the spot light for doing something I absolutely love and adore and that for me is contentment.
