Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The issues of the poor and oppressed in this world are not removed from our worship of God. In fact, to serve the poor is to worship. When we capture God's heart for the poor and broken, we begin to move toward action through worship. In The Justice God Is Seeking, David Ruis explores how drawing near to God softens our hearts and opens us up to the need for salvation that is all around us. Worship and compassion are linked in the Scriptures, and they must be woven throughout our lives. Here is a passionate exhortation to love like Jesus loves and to experience worship that is touched by brokenness and a longing for things to be set right. Therein lies the justice God is seeking.

Download Restoring the Right Relationship PDF by Mark A. O'Brien Full Free and published by ISD LLC. This book was released on 2014-12-31 with total page 344 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A leading biblical scholar, Hans Heinrich Schmid, believes that righteousness, or the right order of the world, is 'the fundamental problem of our human existence'. It is a key theme in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament's theology of creation and salvation, along with associated themes such as justice, steadfast love/loyalty, truth/ fidelity, compassion/mercy, sin and disorder/chaos. A number of studies of righteousness have been undertaken but most have tended to focus on Israel's call to be righteous, as voiced in particular in the Prophetic Books and the Psalter. In contrast, this book focuses on divine righteousness as the basis for all other notions of righteousness, as this is outlined in the foundational teaching or revelation of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament- namely, the Torah or Pentateuch. It then undertakes a study of how righteousness in the Prophetic Books, the Psalter and the Book of Job relates to this foundational teaching.
Download Freedom and Discipleship PDF by Daniel S. Schipani Full Free and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2021-12-29 with total page 201 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An appraisal of liberation theology from the Anabaptist-Mennonite perspective, Freedom and Discipleship brings together essays by prominent theologians of that tradition and responses by Protestant liberation theologians. Emerging from differing ethnic, socio-cultural, and denominational backgrounds, the contributors seek to promote an inter-Christian dialogue. This dialogue, in turn, locates foundations for both building and equipping the ecclesial community for mission, especially the witness of peace and justice. It spurs modern descendants of both traditions to reflect on their own radical roots, while simultaneously raising critical questions on such topics as violence and nonviolence. Freedom and Discipleship offers a unique assessment of liberation theology from the perspective of the “Radical Reformation”—that stream of Protestantism which has understood the discipleship of Jesus to imply commitments to peace and to justice. The contributors address the myriad dimensions of liberation theology—including hermeneutical, ecclesiological, christological, ethical, and eschatological concerns. In Part I, "Perspectives on Liberation Theology," essays evaluate liberation theology at various points and in different ways. Part II, "Dialogical Interface and Implications," reflects the ongoing conversation in a dialectical and dynamic fashion. In bringing together liberation theology and the Anabaptist perspective, Freedom and Discipleship makes a significant contribution to the engagement of two Christian traditions.

Book excerpt: God is love. Love one another. We teach these to children and new Christians, but what exactly do we mean (and do they hear) by love? Our culture offers a multitude of understandings and experiences through which the meaning of love can be filtered.

Book excerpt: How do we know the Bible is God's Word? What is sin and where did it come from? How is Jesus fully God and fully man? What are spiritual gifts? When and how will Christ return?

Abridged from Wayne Grudem's award-winning Systematic Theology, Bible Doctrine covers the same essentials of the faith, giving you a firm grasp on seven key topics: The Doctrine of the Word of God The Doctrine of God The Doctrine of Man The Doctrine of Christ The Doctrine of the Application of Redemption The Doctrine of the Church The Doctrine of the Future Like Systematic Theology, this book is marked by its clarity, its strong scriptural emphasis, its thoroughness in scope and detail, and its treatment of such timely topics as spiritual warfare and the gifts of the Spirit. But you don't need to have had several years of Bible school to reap the full benefits of Bible Doctrine. It's easy to understand—and it's packed with solid, biblical answers to your most important questions.
