The Bible is filled with passages on how to be the most effective parents and raise amazing kids, you just have to know where to look. A collection of scriptural references related to parenting have been gathered and clearly organized in this book.

JESUS: A THEOGRAPHY is the first book ever written to combine historical Jesus studies with biblical theology, crafting together one breathtaking saga that tells the Jesus story in both Old and New Testaments.

Tim Stafford takes a careful look at miraculous events in our modern world --- some hard to accept and others hard to deny --- then places them in a historical and biblical context. Along the way, he explores questions about where and under what circumstances miracles occur today, and what role they should play in the lives of Christians.
Richard Peace explores the various ways people experience and recognize God's presence, including mystical encounters, ordinary daily life, within our hearts, through other people, through Scripture, nature and the church. Throughout he returns to the question of discernment, helping you understand how you can know that it is indeed God you are meeting in each of these places, not just some fanciful figment of the imagination.

Trudy Beyak invites the reader to join her on a global journey to discover a fresh spiritual view of God that is relevant and encouraging for everyone.
