Book Description: For more than two centuries, youth ministries have either strengthened teenagers after a special encounter with God or tried to retain them until such a moment with God shows up. Here veteran youth ministry expert Mark Senter provides the first substantial history of the phenomenon of American Protestant youth ministry. More than a history, this book highlights the evolution of adolescence and adolescent spirituality, outlines three distinct cycles in the history of youth ministry, describes the major shapers of youth ministry over the last century, and helps readers understand trends and changes in youth ministry and their connections to broader church life.

Book Description: What does it take for ordinary men and women to become heroes? We often see stories in the news where people find the courage and the strength to put their lives on the line for others in harm's way, but sometimes there's more to the story. When God Shows Up, Fewer People Die shares a story of God's miraculous intervention into a harrowing situation, where his presence and guidance helped one young woman become a hero. Inspired by a true story, author Laurel Black shares the dramatic narrative of an apartment complex locked down because of an active shooter. While authorities work to take control of the situation, it would be God's hand that would guide a young woman to saving many lives. It takes courage to become a hero, but it also takes faith and God's great power and protection. When God Shows Up, Fewer People Die is a story of God's presence in one of the worst circumstances, and it shows how God can make everything good for those who love him.

Book Description: A gripping story of grace, faith, and triumph for a woman whose world shattered hours after her husband's suicide. Becky Powell faced the unthinkable on May 16, 2013. Her husband Mark called and said, "I've done something terrible." Within hours, she learned that he had taken his own life and, over a period of several years, millions of dollars from friends and colleagues. Everything she believed to be true, the very fiber of her marriage, was called into question. Within a week, rather than planning carpool runs and volunteer fundraisers, she owed almost one hundred creditors millions of dollars and had her own team of ten lawyers. She was also the subject of open FBI, SEC and DOJ investigations--and faced potential criminal charges. And, although she instantly denounced every cent of Mark's $15M in life insurance and promised to repay every penny taken, her lawyers knew that in reality she faced years of court battles and lawsuits, and possible jail time. Yet from that first horrific moment, God was there. He showed up in His Word, in Becky's friends, in her lawyers and in the generosity of those around her. He worked miracles. CNBC, the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and others covered the first moment, but what about the last? What about the story in which God gives your next breath because you can't find it on your own? What about the story of a mom and three kids trying to make sense of their pasts, present and future while living under a microscope? Awful Beautiful Life is Becky's journey through the two years surrounding Mark's death and how she overcame. It came down to a loving God who surrounded her, a present and dedicated family, and friends, who made her life, offered her sanctuary and showed up for her and her kids in tangible ways. This is a story of remarkable grit, strength, and what the Body of Christ in action looks like.

Book Description: God's demand is that man should always have a cordial relationship with Him. Cordial in the sense, that we know Him, love Him and believe in Him and He will constantly show up in every situation that looks bigger than us. His desire is to appear and help, once a man calls on Him and cry for help in the times of trouble. At times, He even comes when any of His beloved child is still thinking about calling on Him. See Isaiah 65:24. It often depends on the level of one's relationship with Him. When He shows up, it can either be for the purpose of good or for bad. It depends on us to choose. Good for good works and bad for bad works. He watches over us and sees every situation and our approach towards them. It does not make him happy seeing us suffer or being in various kinds of troubles, but He always expects that we should call on Him, to come to our aid knowing that He cares for us.God shows up in so many ways. He can show up and help His people through a sign or a miracle. He can show up and help us directly through a vision, a dream or a trance. He can also use His angels to show up and help us or use a man of God to show up and speak to us through His word. No matter how we may feel in our situation or how tough we think the situation is, He is always on time. The Bible has stories of Him and what happened when He showed up. In the book of Genesis, the story of how man was created is told. There, we see God creating man in His own image and likeness. He made a garden and kept man there, to take care of it. Man, however, was disobedient and did not keep to the rules and regulations that God laid down for him to live by. Because of this, God showed up angry and this led to man being chased out of the garden of Eden.God laid curses on man due to that event but in His kindness as God, He still did not destroy man. The Bible recorded that He killed an animal and used its skin to cover the man and his wife. The man Adam did not invite God, but God saw what had happened and came to take action against the man, his wife and the beast that deceived and led them to disobey their creator.This book is written to look at situations where God showed up in the lives of people as recorded in the word of God, the Bible and use them as a landmark for us to have a clear understanding on the things God has prepared and He has done, is doing and will do, for His people in general. God has never intended to abandon anyone who trusts in Him. He is always there by the side, waiting for us to call on Him who is able. He said, "I am the Lord the God of all flesh, is anything too hard for me to do?"There is absolutely nothing too hard for our God to do. He is a warrior and a shield, the mighty man in battle. He has never lost any battle and cannot lose today. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Once we call on him, in spirit and in truth, He answers and show His steadfastness as the only true God. As the almighty God, He cannot share His glory with any other God. The psalmist said, "Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's: . Psalms 103: 1-5He is the Lord!

Book Description: Reality appears dualistic from a logical standpoint. Monism is the picking of one side of the issue as real and the other an illusion. Neomonism is the stance that the answer is not to be found in one or the other but in a nondualistic stance that is a paradoxical unity. I submit there is great confusion over the concept of one. There is the mathematical understanding of one as singular or exclusive and there is the metaphysical understanding of one as manifold or inclusive. Mathematical oneness comes from the language of the mind and metaphysical oneness comes from the language of the heart. This confusion is apparent when we talk about the oneness of -O- (My spelling of the word God.) as we assume a mathematical one that is separate while we are discussing a metaphysical one that is unity. It is true that -O- is one in the mathematical sense of the term, but it is also true that -O- is one in the metaphysical sense of the term. -O- is singular in that there is nothing but -O- and at the same time -O- is unity for the same reason. -O- is not a separate one nor separate manys for the one contains the many while the many contain the one. One of the biggest problems with using the mathematical concept when discussing Metaphysical issues is the idea of separate entities. -O- is separate from Nature. Man is separate from Nature. -O- is separate from Man. These separations are true only in a logical sense for one cannot separate one from the other in an existential sense. The Biblical and Science Literalists are equally hubristic by acting as if they have the authority speak for all of us on these issue of Science vs. Religion. It seems to me this is a false dichotomy with equally unreasonable choices. I find it somewhat amusing to listen to the arguments between the two camps as these people make idols out of images in their attempt to force all people to accept one or the other of the campfire stories as Truth. The Bibleist says only X is true while the Materialist says only Y is true and both fail to realize their respective images are irrelevant when it comes to Reality, which is at least A through Z. Perhaps the most hubristic is this assertion that in order to be considered a -O-image, the qualifier that it must be a being with volition and intent is included. To a Taoist, the concept of the Tao has the same function as the concept of God does to a Christian; why is one a -O-image and the other not? It does not follow that if some parts of one -O-image are shown to be mistaken from a Scientific P.O.V., that all -O-images are thereby invalid for the same reasons. Although they are two aspects of the same enterprise (the understanding of Reality), they occupy different functions in life. Religion is in the sphere of the Intuitive while Science is in the sphere of the Rational. This is why traditional monism misses the point; the One is not a choice between two sides of an issue. Unity is a Reality that encompasses Is and Is Not. We act as if our dictionary daffynitions are the only valid ones, which is certainly not the case, for neither the Biblical nor the Scietheistic images cover the entirety of the Reality. One does not have to give up the idea of -O- just because scientific evidence shows the universe to be self-generating. It seems a bit absurd to me that our Worldview be based on either one or the other when neither option fills the bill by itself. Neomonism questions the assumption of separateness as a fundamental truth. There may be a dichotomy between mind and matter, for example, but is the dichotomy logical or existential? Some take the stance of mind only as reality, some take the body only stance; each mistakes a logical paradox for an existential state of reality. Without body, as we understand it, we would not have mind, as we understand it. Mind only is a partial answer, body only is a partial answer. That any one particular answer is a partial answer does not mean it is a false answer, me
