The heart of the biblical understanding of idolatry, argues Gregory Beale, is that we take on the characteristics of what we worship. Employing Isaiah 6 as his interpretive lens, Beale demonstrates that this understanding of idolatry permeates the whole canon, from Genesis to Revelation.

In Story-Shaped Worship Robbie Castleman attempts nothing less than to uncover the fundamental shape of worship. Right worship doesn't require a traditionalist return to earlier forms of church, she argues, but a fresh response to God in light of the revealed patterns of worship we find in the Bible and church history.

“What I propose to do in this book is to take you on a guided exploration of the Catholic world, but not in the manner of a docent, for I am not interested in showing you the artifacts of Catholicism as though they were dusty objets d’art in a museum of culture. I want to function rather as a mystagogue, conducting you ever deeper into the mystery of the incarnation in the hopes that you might be transformed by its power.” –Father Robert Barron What is the Catholicism? A 2,000 living tradition? A worldview? A way of life? A relationship? A mystery? In Catholicism Father Robert Barron examines all these questions and more, seeking to capture the body, heart and mind of the Catholic faith. Starting from the essential foundation of Jesus Christ’s incarnation, life, and teaching, Father Barron moves through the defining elements of Catholicism – from sacraments, worship, and prayer, to Mary, the Apostles, and Saints, to grace, salvation, heaven, and hell – using his distinct and dynamic grasp of art, literature, architecture, personal stories, Scripture, theology, philosophy, and history to present the Church to the world. Paired with his documentary film series of the same title, Catholicism is an intimate journey, capturing “The Catholic Thing” in all its depth and beauty. Eclectic, unique, and inspiring, Father Barron brings the faith to life for a new generation, in a style that is both faithful to timeless truths, while simultaneously speaking in the language of contemporary life. This enhanced eBook includes a video introduction from the author as well as sixteen short videos from Father Barron’s landmark documentary series Catholicism, totaling more than forty minutes of material. Color photos throughout.

We are living in one of the most crucial times in the history of our nation. Our financial security has been shaken, our national security threatened, and we are at war in the Middle East. In the American Church, the grip of religion, false worship, and disunity is leaving us as tasteless salt to the world. The plum line of truth is increasingly becoming more skewed to fit the agendas of ambitious ministry. However, there is a generation rising up and crying out to know God in a real way. They are not about "doing church," but about glorifying God. These young leaders will lay a foundation of true change during a time of real persecution and trial by fire. We, the church, must embrace this Josiah spirit, crown them with authority, and support them as they restore true worship in the church. A fiery windstorm is coming that will scorch the flesh and expose the heart. Listen to the winds as they whisper what is to come. From its lips and out of its throat bellows the heart of God, this is Josiah's Cry: The Rising Revolution. Can you hear it? Jay Paul Roy is a licensed professional counselor who lives and works in Georgetown, Texas with his beautiful wife Kari, and children Judson, Straton, and Asah. Jay Paul has worked with children and families in the counseling field for over 15 years. His practice has focused mainly on treating children of abuse and neglect, at risk youth, and their families.

Buddhism's influence is growing in the West, as seen in the widespread use of Buddhist mindfulness apps in people's attempts to unwind, or the casual use of words like nirvana and karma that have crept into the English language. Whether we meet it in the East or West, what is Buddhism? What is at the heart of its teachings? How does Buddhism differ from Christianity, and are they compatible? Through a collection of true short stories and testimonies, Buddhism in the Light of Christ--a sequel and companion to Esther Baker's first book, I Once was a Buddhist Nun--takes an insightful look at some core Buddhist beliefs and practices, and then reflects on them from a Christian viewpoint and biblical understanding. Esther tackles important questions such as: How does the Buddhist goal nirvana and God differ? and Is Buddhism a form of idolatry? Her responses reveal a penetrating understanding that helps to unravel and demystify the true nature of Buddhism. Buddhism in the Light of Christ also includes helpful suggestions on how to share Jesus with Buddhist friends, as well as important considerations regarding discipleship once a Buddhist has come to know Christ.

This book charts the borderline between the nocturnal side of mysticism and the luminous side of death and it illuminates their paradoxical affinities. Within a culture of both denial and despair, it affirms the reality but not the finality of death. If what the generations have called the mystery of death is “the last enemy,” a still more mysterious mysticism would anticipate, illuminate and disarm it, issuing in what “eyes have not seen, ears have not heard.” This work is contemporary in that it represents a creative and original appropriation of tradition, is spiritually more mystical than devotional—and is ecumenically conversant with and sensitive to the great religious traditions.

The study of liturgy has received criticism from scholars and practitioners alike: the academic discipline of liturgiology has been compared to the hobby of stamp collection, and proponents for liturgical renewal argue that worship must be made more accessible and relevant. Bryan Spinks has been an important moderating voice in this discussion, reminding both academic and ecclesial communities that Christ is made known in the liturgical riches of the past as well as in contemporary forms of the present. Inspired by Spinks' work, this volume brings together biblical, historical, and theological scholars to discuss the theme of continuity and change in worship. Its historical range begins with the early church, extends through the Reformation, and concludes with a discussion of issues facing contemporary liturgical reform. In recognition of the fact that Professor Spinks' work has been widely influential in both Europe and the United States, the editors have solicited liturgical perspectives from scholars with international reputations on sides of the Atlantic.
