Learning Greek is one thing. Retaining it and using it in preaching, teaching, and ministry is another. In this volume, two master teachers with nearly forty years of combined teaching experience inspire readers to learn, retain, and use Greek for ministry, setting them on a lifelong journey of reading and loving the Greek New Testament. Designed to accompany a beginning or intermediate Greek grammar, this book offers practical guidance, inspiration, and motivation; presents methods not usually covered in other textbooks; and surveys helpful resources for recovering Greek after a long period of disuse. It also includes devotional thoughts from the Greek New Testament. The book will benefit anyone who is taking (or has taken) a year of New Testament Greek.

This is your Playbook for life. In life, you’re going to get tackled, intercepted, or end up in the wall. So how do you prepare and be ready when life slams you unexpectedly? Maybe your struggle is with your finances, your relationships, your job, or perhaps you just hope to gain understanding of some of the basics about God, salvation, and what your purpose is in life. If so, the Game Plan for Life Bible, NIV will reveal God’s perspectives in these areas in a practical, engaging way and provide the tools you need to create a solid, God-honoring game plan for your life. The notes that lead you to the Bible’s answers on your toughest questions are based on a national survey that former NFL coach and current NASCAR team owner Joe Gibbs commissioned. This research targeted the everyday life issues that men struggle with most. He may have Super Bowl rings and NASCAR Cup championship trophies to his credit, but Coach Gibbs believes that, by turning to the Bible in times of failure and adversity, he has learned about true success. Written specifically for the “average Joe”, Joe Gibbs’ notes will enlighten, encourage and inspire you as you strive to build a game plan for your life. Features: • Key articles from well-known experts on the areas of God, creation, finances, relationships, career, vocation and other topics of interest to men. • Devotions from Joe Gibbs that help you to learn from the Coach himself. • Character studies of Bible characters who actually followed God’s Game Plan—and how you can follow it, too. • Book introductions for every book of the Bible. “Winning the game of life is like winning in NASCAR or the NFL—if you don’t have the right game plan, you won’t succeed. Like a lot of guys, I tried many “game plans.” None led me to true success and a couple ended in disaster. Not until I turned to the Bible did I gain the insights of God’s game plan for my life and experience true, eternal success. Written for the ‘average Joe’ like me, I’m convinced the Game Plan for Life Bible will help you if you’re serious about developing a successful game plan for your life.” - Joe Gibbs 8.5-point type size

We all need God, Sister Jeremy says in her first sentence, and readers of all sorts will find here a warm and practical address to that need. The monastic way is not forsaking the world, but for the sake of the world, and Sister Jeremy's Benedictine wisdom is fundamental human wisdom. Her book is the fruit of decades of practice, and the spiritual journey she recounts is nobody's but hers 'which makes it, paradoxically, something from which everyone can learn. I did is much more effective teaching than one might or you should. There is nothing musty, cobwebbed, or nostalgic in these pages. Sister Jeremy, in her late 80s, is totally alert to the world around her and within us. She is allergic to sentimentality. Because she has spent so much time in silence 'she lived as a hermit for 20 years 'she is especially attentive to words and how like a chameleon they can be. Her antennae are sensitive to anything phony. Every sentence glows with her graceful and witty and hospitable spirit. She is an inspired teacher, a trustworthy guide, one of God's great ones. She shows how a monastic is not on a pedestal or behind a wall, but right in the thick of things with all of us. Jeremy Hal, OSB, is a member of Saint Benedict's Monastery, St. Joseph, Minnesota. She holds a doctorate in theology from Marquette University. Currently retired, Sister Jeremy taught theology at the College of St. Benedict/St. John's University and School of Theology 'seminary, and at Creighton University. She is the author of numerous articles as well as The Full Stature of Christ(Liturgical Press). Sister Jeremy lived as a hermit for twenty years. During that time she gained renown as a wellspring of wisdom and gifted retreat leader.

Offer Them Life

A Life-Based Evangelistic Vision

In this book Dan Dunn proposes that the biblical theme of life is extremely important and thus provides a helpful foundation for the theory and practice of evangelism. He makes a strong case for Christ-followers to embrace a life-based evangelistic vision as a way to help non-believers choose the full and vibrant life that God intends for them in Jesus. While making this strong case, he also urges readers to avoid casting aside other evangelistic visions (such as those based on discipleship, the kingdom, forgiveness, atonement, etc.). Instead, he invites us to add a life-based evangelistic vision to the possibilities available to us for helping people choose to follow Jesus and thus experience the life He makes possible for them.

True heroes are not born heroes but are made heroes. Ultimately, our struggles and accomplishments inspire others. Great people come and go but the legacy is left behind for people to emulate, talk about and remember. This book is about a man that impacted my life. We should learn to appreciate the fact that in the natural world, great beings and intelligent beings don’t die but continue living with the legacy left behind. The greatest of all people is Jesus Christ. He came on earth with a vision and goal to die in order to redeem others. He did not win for His own sake but He made all of us winners. He is our real icon of faith, peace, love, hope, redemption, unity, compassion, transparency, reconciliation, forgiveness, empathy... name it. This book is not just a biography but it is written in a compelling way to encourage your faith. Like all my books, it is not necessarily profiled to appeal to your emotions. It is written for the seekers of meaning and creators of legacy. Those of you who have read my books, the serial anecdotes point to the character of a teacher. I am a teacher by calling and write with prior intention to teach. I am neither a celebrated poet nor professional entertainer. Great story tellers leave you exited and wanting but a teacher leaves you thinking. I believe that a preacher that invokes your reasoning is the prince of the pulpit.

What is life? The gene's eye view of life sees living bodies as mere vehicles for the replication of genetic codes. Noble sets out an alternative view - that the genome is not life itself, and argues that genes should be seen as prisoners of the organism. To understand what life is, we must view it at a variety of different levels, all interacting with each other in a complex web, full of feedback between levels, from the gene to the wider environment. It is that web, a kind of music, that is life. Including stories from Noble's own research experience, this personal and at times lyrical book sets out the systems biology view of life.
