"Jesus wrote no autobiography. He left nothing in writing at all. He committed himself and his teaching simply to the hearts and memories of the men who knew and loved him. And they did not fail him. The four little books that we call Gospels are our primary and practically our only sources of information about the life and the words that have changed the world. We may wish the story had been told with greater fullness and detail; but we know that, short as it is, it is enough. It has given Christ to every race and age." (excerpt from Chapter 1: The Making of the Gospels)
ABOUT THE BOOK This book had to be written to clear up many myths about Christianity today. The author's inspirational and scholarly approach to the state of religion, both from a modern perspective as well as from an historical outlook, is timely. The author closely documents the divine glory and guidance of the Bible. He laid emphasis on both the letter and the spirit of the Holy Bible, and opens for all readers some of the main themes of Biblical teaching, while revealing and clarifying many of the ancient stories and truths. Within the worldly context, the author writes in detail the hidden power and supremacy of Jesus Christ above all other religious founders. He was inspired to write by his observance that many people were no longer experiencing unchallengeable power that is vested in Christ and lead the reader to the source. This volume is perhaps the doorway through which true believers may pass on their way to a richer, more fulfilling religious life. It will strengthen and enrich our faith. ABOUT THE AUTHOR John's life is synonymous to that of the Apostle Paul in the Holy Bible, who was a very religious Jew until he met Christ. John grew up in a Pentecostal church where their worship-style is Judaic in nature. When Christ called him to be a minister, he began his lifelong fight of faith against Satan and the false ministers in Satan's grasp throughout the world. He is the founder and president of the Absolute Faith(r) In Jesus Christ Ministries. He was inaugurated to the office of Bishop on July 19, 2009. His ministries and messages have helped thousands of lives to obtain salvation and holistic freedom. While he was born in Nigeria, he now lives with his wife and children in United States of Americ
"To be a disciple of Jesus Christ is to be in a position of privilege and blessing beyond anything the world might offer," begins author Jeremy Walker. Life in Christ explores the unsearchable riches of the Christian pilgrimage and traces its trajectory, highlighting key elements in the believer's experience. Do you wrestle with assurance? Have you grasped the engagement demanded in Christian living? Do you find the way wearying at times? Do you struggle with your Christian identity? Walker provides instruction for Christians to assess their own standing and progress in the faith exhorting and equipping and always pointing them ahead to the hope of the glory of Christ. Along the way, he encourages God's people to live a life to the praise of His glory as he examines some of the basic truths that establish and direct a true child of God. "In this splendid book on the very central issues of eternity, Jeremy Walker, like J. C. Ryle of old, carries the reader along with an excellent, gripping style. It is a book that everyone should read and then pass on to others who need an explanation of the true gospel, especially those slaves of political correctness sadly found in many modern pulpits." Erroll Hulse, pastor, conference speaker, author, and founding editor of Reformation Today

Way Truth:Life, that expands upon the theology presented in the authors first-published book, Way Truth:Life Revelation of the Creator LORD Jesus Christ, is a book that is much needed. For, most who claim to be Christian do not comprehend the fullness of Who the Creator LORD Jesus Christ is. And, virtually none of these understands Gods overall Plan of Redemption of the Ages that is necessary to correctly interpret Bible prophecy. These are so ignorant of what God is doing and about to do that they do not even know what questions to ask. Most proclaimed Christians have no concept of what the Bible reveals concerning the timing of Christs return. They certainly cannot use simple terms to clearly explain how Gods predestination and mankinds free will coexist. They do not know how God will ultimately judge all sinners in a fair manner regardless of when they live or what spiritual enlightenment they are exposed to. Sadly, most do not even know what God really requires for a person to be born again and eternally saved, much less what spiritual stages everyone who ever lives potentially goes through from the moment that one comes into existence until he physically dies. They do not know Gods plan for His chosen nation of Israel during the church age, during the coming 7-year Tribulation and during the Millennial Kingdom. And, they have no idea what the Bible clearly reveals about the destiny of everyone who dies before the age of moral accountability. Clear answers to the above are provided within this fully scripture-referenced book on theology entitled Way Truth:Life. Additionally, the authors most-literal approach to interpreting Gods Word also makes it very easy to decipher Bible prophecy.
In Life in Christ Raniero Cantalamessa, preacher to the papal household, presents a project ofre-evangelization and spiritual renewal based on St. Paul's Letter to the Romans. It is therefore neither an exegetical commentary nor a theological treatise, but goes straight to the heart of what animated the Apostle when he wrote this letter. His aim was not to give the Christians of Rome - and the Christians of later generations - a difficult text on which to exercise their critical wisdom but rather to impart a spiritual gift to them so that they would be strengthened and mutually encouraged by each other's faith. At the beginning of the third millennium a new phenomenon is spreading through the Christian Churches which can only be the work of the Holy Spirit. Up to now Christians of different denominations have proclaimed Jesus Christ mainly in competition and rivalry with one another, thus compromising our testimony in the eyes of the world. Why should we not grasp this unique occasion to start proclaiming together with brotherly love our common belief in Christ, which is far more important than what still separates us? Pope John Paul II has espoused this project and has expressed the wish that all Christians take this opportunity for fruitful cooperation in the many areas which unite us; these are unquestionably more numerous than those which divide us." Life in Christ is a contribution to the realization of this project. Father Cantalamessa has made the most of the insights and riches present in each one of the three main Christian traditions: Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant, avoiding those points not commonly shared by all believers in Christ, or at least by the majority of them. The Letter to the Romans lends itself to this aim because it deals with the basics of the Christian faith, leaving all the rest aside. It is the ideal basis for that "Common Witness" which is becoming more and more central to ecumenical dialogue. This is, therefore, a first and "partial" attempt to present a spirituality and a proclamation corresponding to the new grace of understanding and unity given to the Christians in the second half of this century. Chapters are "Loved by God!" "all Have Sinned," "The Righteousness of God Has Been Manifested!" "He Was Put to Death for Our Trespasses," "He Was Raised for Our Justification," "God Did Not Spare His Own Son," "Let Not Sin Reign in Your Mortal Bodies!" "The Law of the Spirit Which Gives Life," "The Spirit Intercedes for Us," "Let Love Be Sincere," "Don't Think Too Highly of Yourselves," "By One Man's Obedience," and "Let Us Put on the Armor of Light." Raniero Cantalamessa, OFM Cap, is a past professor of the history of Christian origins at the Catholic University of Milan and a member of the International Theological Commission. He is preacher to the papal household and the author of The Mystery of Pentecost, Easter in the Early Church; The Eucharist: Our Sanctification; The Mystery of God's Word; The Holy Spirit in the Life of Jesus; Jesus Christ, The Holy One of God; Mary, Mirror of the Church; The Mystery of Christmas; and The Mystery of Easter published by The Liturgical Press.

Origins: Mankind's Forgotten History and His Story Revealed is a title with two meanings. When you read the title And His Story Revealed, the reader will automatically think that the story of mankind's forgotten history will be told to them, and indeed it will. What the reader will also come to realize is the book title has a double meaning. The second meaning of His Story Revealed is the life story and meaning of the life of Christ. In the chapter "Who is Jesus?", Arthur John Manuel will explain who Jesus is and all the answers for the question why Jesus was. He will explain in detail all the reasons why, it will explain Mary and Joseph in detail and the lineage so the reader can understand exactly why Christ had to be born through the love/union of these two people. He will also explain the importance of the blood and the life sacrifice of Jesus Christ, our high priest and savior. As the reader continues on, he will read about the creation periods on earth and of men. This new method of explanation will agree with all the evidence in the world around us today, and it will fit in the pieces to the puzzle of our forgotten history, remnants of a once glorious past left behind as evidence of a forgotten history. Author John Manuel will explain Genesis and the creation period in a new light that completely agrees with the evidence left behind and those forgotten ancient cultures. The skeptic will definitely reconsider his skepticism after reading this new method of explanation. This is where the title's first reading comes into play, Mankind's Forgotten History. This chapter will tell the story of mankind's forgotten history. Have you ever wondered about evil spirits and the meaning of a spiritual world? Well, John Manual will explain where they come from and who evil and unclean spirits were and their goals. He'll explain of the rules they must live by, the power we have over them through Jesus and the Holy Spirit, a short summary on how to do battle against them, with the prayer of spiritual cleansing body, mind, and soul. And after, the reader will understand that spirits and mankind coexist in our physical world. Ever wondered about angels? The author explains these angelic race of beings who are the sons of God, where they were created by God. Note that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God. This book will explain the difference in this chapter. The reader will learn of the forgotten path of earth, preflood, and the role angels played against Satan and his forces of evil in mankind's forgotten history. Have you ever wondered of an ancient world? This book will explain logically who God is, how he created us, why we were created. When you read about how the author explains why mankind is missing the last steps of our own evolution because of greed, you'll agree with the fact that mankind has not evolved, and the past 8,000 years of technological advances does not mean we have. An atheist will question his own belief. And last, author John Manuel will argue the fact that Jesus Christ is indeed the Messiah using father Abraham and his actions for sanctification examples. I'll stop there. If you want to know more you must first read this entire book. To the readers from the author: Hello my friend. I just first want to say thank you for purchasing the book. I want to encourage you to buy it for all who don't believe in God. We all have loved ones we care about, and we want them to enjoy eternity with our maker and our savior. This book is written from above. Believe me when I say this, when I write, I'm only writing what I've been shown and taught through visions and dreams. Although I may be the author, and my name is on this book, God gets all the credit. Remember always, God worked and then he rested when he created earth and everything in it. So we must first work to enter into his rest. This life that we have is our only chance to work for him. Once it is over, that's it. No work will be done, ever. I urge you work hard for God and win souls for Christ. He died for all souls. He deserves every one of them. Work for him in this life, invest in your eternal life so you can enjoy the splendor of your reward-an eternal life with the heavenly trinity on a new earth, forever and ever. God bless you all.

The time is ripe for a new account of the life of Jesus. It has been over twenty-five years since an evangelical New Testament scholar has written a textbook survey of this type. Today the landscape of Jesus and Gospel studies has been radically transformed by new questions and critical challenges. No less remarkable is the contemporary renaissance of our knowledge of the world of Jesus. In Jesus the Messiah Robert Stein draws together the results of a career of research and writing on Jesus and the Gospels. Every episode in the life of Jesus is here treated with historical care and attention to its significance for understanding the life and ministry of Jesus. Clearly written, ably argued and geared to the needs of students, Jesus the Messiah will give probing minds a sure grounding in the life and ministry of Jesus.
Jesus Christ for Contemporary Life is an understanding of Jesus as the Word of God, grounded in what can be known historically of Jesus and informed by subsequent reflection upon him, which hopes to help shape a Christian identity characterized by "bounded openness." In Jesus Christ for Contemporary Life, Don Schweitzer explores the significance of the person, work, and relationships of Jesus Christ for contemporary life. He moves from the historical Jesus to the present in three parts. In the first part Schweitzer develops an understanding of Jesus as the Word of God, who became incarnate to give the goodness and beauty of God further expression in time and space. Second, he explores how various atonement theories articulate ways in which Jesus empowers people to further express this beauty and goodness in their own lives. And finally, Schweitzer explores how Jesus relates to people in the church, to the events and movements in history, to other religions, and to Christians in their dialogue with God in prayer.
The Lord God created in our hearts a desire for deep, loving relationships. This heart's desire can be filled by our family, friends, and most of all, by a personal relationship with the living God, Jesus Christ. Author Kenneth J. Berthel celebrates these relationships with Poems of a Life Set Apart, a compendium of inspiring verses to help you find or rekindle a profound love with your family, friends, and, above all, Christ. Through vivid imagery and colorful language, Berthel shows how life brings times of joy, love, happiness, and disappointments. His poems, accompanied by personal photos, explore how family and friends can share in our joy and can also be a source of encouragement during times of strife. Regardless of what life throws our way, Berthel believes there is one solid rock we can go to for forgiveness, healing, understanding, restoration, and eternal life-the Lord Jesus Christ. His down-to-earth verses aptly reflect this, as does his included testimony. Reflective of traditional family values, Poems of a Life Set Apart delivers the warmth, inspiration, and encouragement you need in every relationship of your life.

It is a book about hope for terminal illness that comes from the power that is higher than everything.It brings people closer to God,to be able to communicate in trust with him in everything. It takes away humiliation of death that comes from terminal illness; it brings hope to those who have lost it because of troubles. It will bring healing, mend brokenness, and bring wholeness in families and it helps people to be able to give glory to God because of his mighty deeds. It teaches that praising God as our protector pleases him and he continues to pour out his favour and revelation upon us. It teaches the importance of righteousness, faith and love in humanity. "God touched me, healed me, and made me whole again." God extends his mercy in our lives and call us for his Kingdom, to be his vessels of his glory and honour. When we are weak, he becomes stronger. Readers will take heart and be comforted and assured about God's love. It helps us to combat Spiritual Warfares and teaches how to put on the full armour of God. Our truthful God cares and never tires in our lives. It is all about God's divine purpose in our lives. God is real, he moves and is aware of the struggles of this world. There is hope for terminal illness and that hope is anchored on the Cross, on the power of the blood of Jesus that purchased us. Isaiah 53:4-5 "Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed."
The biblical shorthand of theological language is useful for expressing complicated doctrines-but only for those who understand it. Key Words of the Christian Life de-mystifies words and concepts like "justification," "sanctification," and "adoption into the family of God" for lay readers. Each chapter focuses on a New Testament word or phrase that has important implications for the believer's life and faith. Warren Wiersbe gives easy-to-grasp explanations of each word's theological meaning, along with practical application for the Christian life. Wiersbe's careful teaching will be invaluable to everyone from new believers to those looking for resources to teach others the powerful implications of key Bible words.
The life and ministry of Jesus serve as the focal point, not only of the Bible, but indeed of all human history. The entirety of God's revelation to man points toward, describes, and then flows from the incarnation, death, and resurrection of the Son of God. Thus a proper understanding of the life of Christ is essential in order to comprehend everything from Creation to Consummation, the meaning and direction of history, and the significance of each individual life. Pilate's question, "What shall I do with Jesus, who is called Christ?" (Matthew 27:22) is decisive in the eternal destiny of every person who lives on this earth. As the Apostle John indicates, the Gospel narratives were written "so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you might have life in His name" (John 20:31). They were intended to elicit faith in Christ as Savior, not to serve as the object of academic study. At the same time, when Jesus said to the Pharisees, "You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life" (John 5:39), He was not criticizing their extensive study of the Word, but rather the fact that they did so without faith. The Gospels must therefore be studied with a desire to know personally the Messiah of whom they speak. Knowledge without personal application is as fruitless today as it was among the religious leaders to whom Jesus spoke two thousand years ago. The fact that God has given us four Gospels is a source of great richness in our search for the Savior of whom they speak, but it has also been the basis for much criticism. It is no accident that one of the earliest apologetic works written in the Early Church was a harmony of the Gospels (Tatian's Diatessaron). Pagan philosophers and Jewish scholars alike pointed to supposed contradictions in the Gospels in an effort to discredit their reliability and authority. In modern times, critical scholars have gone even further, denying the traditional authorship of the books and suggesting that they were written by people who lived long after the time of Christ and never knew Him personally. Studying the life of Christ in the form of a harmony, weaving the Gospel narratives together into a smooth whole, can thus serve an apologetic as well as devotional purpose, enabling the believer to "be prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you" (I Peter 3:15). Note, however, that the task is complicated by the fact that Jesus undoubtedly said many of the things recorded in the Gospels on multiple occasions during his ministry of approximately three and a half years. Many scholars since the time of Tatian have attempted to harmonize the Gospel narratives, and the results vary in many particulars. In this text I have relied mostly on A.T. Robertson's classic Harmony of the Gospels (1932) while supplementing it with other sources. Most efforts to create a chronology of the life and ministry of Jesus have assumed that Mark, Luke, and John are basically chronological, while Matthew tends to group material topically, leading the writers to build their harmonies around either Mark or Luke. Robertson succeeds more than most in retaining the sequence of all three narratives other than Matthew, and thus I have chosen to use his work as the foundation for this book. Another issue that arises when studying the life of Christ as recorded in the Gospels is the problem of matching it with what we know about the history of the Roman Empire at the time of Jesus. Luke gives more chronological markers than the other Gospel writers, but the range of times associated with the rulers he mentions still leaves quite a bit of room for controversy. The dating scheme I have chosen to follow has Jesus being born around 6 BC, beginning His public ministry in 29 AD, and going to the Cross during the Passover in 33 AD.
