Serving as a valuable core text for students, this book also contributes to a number of current debates in theology and philosophy of religion: the debates on realism and religious belief, on the rationality of faith and the nature of theology, on the relation between religious belief and morality, on the relation between science and religion and the lively debate among evangelical Christians in America on the 'openness of God.'

Together We Pray is a book of prayers written especially for families with children. It brings together grandparents, parents, older children, and even the youngest child to give thanks and to ask for God's help and mercy for the family and for the world. The prayers offered in Together We Pray are inspired by the Psalms of the Bible, scripture shared by Jews and Christians. They include prayers for the table, devotional prayers, and memory prayers that young children can easily understand. The prayers for table and devotion begin with a line or two from the Psalm in which the prayer is rooted and celebrate the good things of life just as the Psalms do--food, joy, home, love, and more. They also express a concern for other people and places around the world. For so many families, life today seems fast-paced and chaotic. Stopping for a moment to breathe, pausing and expressing thanks and gratitude to God, can be very powerful, even if the pause is relatively brief. Together We Pray helps families to take that pause, to share in God's love and grace, and to do so in the most profound and lasting way--together as a family.

The purpose of this book is to help the reader not only to pray the Lord's Prayer, but also to know what it means to pray it. Basing his interpretations and reflections on the prayer as found in Luke (11:2-4), the author brings fresh insights to it and draws out special meaning for today's Christian. His study is particularly sensitive to the cultural influences of Luke's time that affect an understanding of the prayer. But he moves beyond a mere study to focus on the experience of prayer, an experience that shapes lives and discloses meaning in a special way.

" When we turn our whole hearts to Him, calling out with our desperate needs, knowing He will meet us, He does. We simply come to Him, believing that He is. "And we are irresistible to Him." Think about it. When you come to your Heavenly Father in prayer you are irresistible to Him. Why? Because He longs to hear from you and build a relationship with you through prayer. But just like any relationship, your prayer life can either flourish or fade away. In the heart of every growing believer there should be a desperate cry for more of God--whether it's to understand who He is or to be more effective for Him. In "Desperate for God, Nancie Carmichael compares the development of prayer to four stages of life: infancy, youth, mid-life, and maturity. Each step along the way is defined by a different need for God--with each need drawing you closer and deeper into His heart. As you grow, you will discover the joy of praying according to His will, the practical applications of a consistent, daily prayer life, and the peace and confidence of a close relationship with Him. We each come to Him with different cries of desperation, but how blessed we are when we know our need of Him. For that is the heart of prayer. Whether you are new in your faith or have walked with the Lord for years, the cry of your heart for more of Him is one He always longs to answer. By trusting that He is there, desiring to meet your needs, you have reached the place where prayer begins. Within these warmly written pages, you'll learn what captures your heart and determines how you pray. With practical tips for continued growth, you'll discover the power, peace, and strength that come fromprayer--from simply being available to the One who longs to care for you.

Worshipping and praying together have long been recognised as central to the quest for the visible unity of the church. This book treats such topics as worship as an expression and experience of common faith, worship and culture, and local experiences of worship and unity in Latin America, Africa and India and in Orthodox and united congregations. "In common worship I experience the unity which the theologians only talk about." Many Christians would agree with this statement. Yet worship remains one of the most sensitive areas ecumenically; and in fact Christians often appear most divided over issues of worship, particularly when they cannot join together at the Lord's table. The book grew out of a remarkable meeting at which leading liturgical scholars, Protestant, Roman Catholic and Orthodox theologians, worship leaders, musicians and local pastors gathered for an ecumenical discussion of the scriptural and theological basis, practical possibilities and problems of Christian worship today. Linking theory with practice, ranging from inculturation to icons, this volume includes papers by Gordon Lathrop, Anscar Chupungco O.S.B., Janet Crawford and Thomas FitzGerald, as well as lively accounts from around the world of how Christians today are exploring issues of worship and unity.

This is a devotional that can be used as a foundation as believers continue to build their relationship with Christ Jesus. These prayers have a scripture reference to point towards context of using scripture in prayer. The prayers go line upon line with the scripture throughout the prayers. The devotional is in no way intended nor could it ever replace a personal relationship with God, but it will serve as a guide, especially for those who are called to labor in prayer. This book helps usher us into the presence of God and then worship Him freely and talk to Him from our hearts. It also is a good way to pray through the day and write our thoughts and what we believe God has said to us in our prayer time and devotion.
