  The Message: The Bible in Contemporary Language
By Eugene H. Peterson
Over seven million people have enjoyed The Message - New Testament, and have been eagerly awaiting the day when Eugene Peterson would complete the Old Testament, and release the entire Bible in his unique translational-paraphrase. Well, the wait is over!
Translated directly from the ancient Hebrew and Greek texts into today's contemporary American idiomatic speech, The Message is designed as a reading Bible. With no verse numbers or stiff, formal language, the Scriptures unfold like a gripping novel. Passages we've read many times before come alive, revealing the vibrant energy and passion of God's Word. From the mysterious Old Testament stories to the straightforward teachings of Jesus, to the encouraging early church letters, reading The Message will jump-start hearts, challenge minds, and forever change lives.
Although translated by only one man and not by committee, this "translational-paraphrase" was reviewed by theologians to validate the accuracy of Peterson's translation from the ancient Greek and Hebrew texts of the Bible.

Rumors of Another World
By Philip Yancey
In Rumors of Another World, Philip Yancey investigates the natural world and discovers the supernatural hiding in plain view. He grapples with why God made the world and what our role truly is, and seeks to answer the question, "How do I live in the natural world while expressing the values of the supernatural?" He writes, "I have come to understand faith as the highest form of integrated encounter. Faith puts together, assembles, re-orders, accepting the entire world as God's handiwork. We live among clues, like rescuers shifting through pieces of stained glass shattered by a bomb, and only with a blueprint or some memory of original design can we begin to connect the shards, to assemble them into a pattern that makes sense of our world." Yancey invites you to join him on a journey of discovery. He will challenge you to tune into "rumors of another world," and connect the seen with the unseen. He promises that the grace-filled result will be a life of beauty, purpose, freedom, and faith.

Theological Studies

On the Cessation of the Charismata: The Protestant Polemic on Postbiblical Miracles
By Jon Ruthven
The recent dramatic growth in the Pentecostal and charismatic movements revitalized the ancient debate over cessationism—the doctrine that manifestations of miraculous spiritual gifts have ceased. This work by Regent University professor Jon Ruthven provides a thorough and detailed assessment of the cessation controversy, examining the historical, philosophical and biblical contexts to provide an irenic interpretive framework grounded in scriptural intent. The book also includes an exhaustive bibliography which will serve as an invaluable scholarly resource for those working in this area.

66855: Spirit of the Last Days Spirit of the Last Days
By Peter Althouse
Early Pentecostals proclaimed the restoration of the charismatic gifts as a sign of the imminent coming of Christ. This eschatology was later marginalized by the rise of fundamentalist dispensationalism. Today Pentecostal eschatology is being revised to include a more transformative view of the kingdom.

This book proposes a further revision of Pentecostal eschatology created to recover prophetic elements of early Pentecostalism that invite a responsible social engagement in the world, and to overcome fundamentalist assumptions which have crept into Pentecostal theology in its middle years. To this end, the eschatological thought of selected Pentecostal theologians is placed in dialogue with Jurgen Moltmann. This dialogue critiques fundamentalist tendencies within contemporary Pentecostalism by advocating a theology more open to history and creation, and a Pentecostal ethic both personal and social in scope. Continuum, 2003.

602149: The Prophecy That Is Shaping History The Prophecy That Is Shaping History
By Jon Mark Ruthven
Perhaps the biggest news story in two thousand years is now building: A worldwide, apocalyptic clash of spiritual forces in a fight to the death. The focus of this conflict is the tiny state of Israel, whose re-emergence its traditional land has sparked unrelenting rage and attack. Repeated votes in the United Nations reveal an enduring hostility among the nations of the world toward Israel - even to the point of denying her right to exist. News media and political analysts have overlooked an important factor in this growing global animosity toward Israel. That factor is a single ancient prophecy that not only predicts this universal conflict, but also powerfully shapes its precipitating events and attitudes, and does it on both sides of the conflict! Amazingly, this prophecy by Ezekiel (chapters 38 and 39) is currently the subject of numerous best-selling books, both in the English-speaking and Muslim worlds! THE PROPHECY THAT IS SHAPING HISTORY represents a breakthrough in research and scholarship. This new and serious study of the subject clearly traces the origins and the ultimate destinies of the major nations who will clash in the most horrific battle the world has ever seen. Xulon Press.

027700: The Spirit Poured Out on All Flesh: Pentecostalism and the Possiblity of Global Theology The Spirit Poured Out on All Flesh: Pentecostalism and the Possiblity of Global Theology
By Amos Yong
The Pentecostal movement has had an incredible impact on the shape of worldwide Christianity in the past century. Estimates are that Pentecostals and charismatics make up approximately one-fourth of Christians worldwide, and the numbers are only expected to grow. With these developments comes the need for thoughtful Christians of all persuasion to better understand Pentecostal theology. In fact, Amos Yong believes that Pentecostal theology can be a great gift to the church at large. Yong presents a thoroughly Pentecostal theology of salvation, the church, the nature of God, and creation. He also provides a fascinating survey of the state of worldwide Pentecostalism, examining how Pentecostal theology is influencing Christian churches in other countries. Baker, 2005.

Mission: sharing the story of Jesus

2804268: Gospel in a Pluralist Society Gospel in a Pluralist Society
By Lesslie Newbigin
How does the gospel relate to a pluralist society? What is the Christian message in a society marked by religious pluralism, ethnic diversity, and cultural relativism? Should Christians encountering today's pluralist society concentrate on evangelism or on dialogue? How does the prevailing climate of opinion affect, perhaps infect, Christians' faith? These kinds of questions are addressed in this book by Lesslie Newbigin. A highly respected Christian leader and ecumenical figure, Newbigin provides a brilliant analysis of contemporary (secular, humanist, pluralist) culture and suggests how christians can more confidently affirm their faith in such a context.

Christian History

2000 Years of Charismatic Christianity
By Eddie L. Hyatt
Overwhelming evidence reveals contemporary Christianity roots in Pentecost! The world is taking notice and realizing that the fastest-growing segment in Christianity has an undeniable history with a pattern and a rich, deep foundation dating back to the New Testament. Explore overwhelming evidence that reveals how the gifts of the Holy Spirit not only have existed in the centuries since the early apostles, but have also survived the Middle Ages, the politicized church of Europe, and have experienced a spectacular revival this century. 2000 Years of Charismatic Christianity offers convincing evidence that the modern Pentecostal and Charismatic movements are rooted in the two-thousand-year history of the church. Those who identify with these movements will be affirmed in the experience of the Holy Spirit and will gain a new respect and appreciation for the movement of which they are a part. Those outside the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements will also benefit by reading this volume in that they will gain an understanding of this movement that Harvard professor Dr. Harvey Cox says is "reshaping religion in the 21st century."
