The Reading and Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Christian Church, vol. 7: Our Own Time

The Reading and Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Christian Church, vol. 7: Our Own Time

This magisterial volume is the seventh and last of Hughes Oliphant Old’s history of preaching. Here Old takes up the story with the sixties and the Second Vatican Council and follows it all the way through to the house churches of China and the preaching of the Archbishop of Uganda, known as the “Billy Graham of Africa.” Along the way he looks at the engaging preaching found in Latin America, the rise of the modern megachurch, the role of Joan Alexandru’s preaching in bringing down the house of Ceausescu, and other historically significant moments in preaching. / Full of surprising details and inspiring stories of ministry, this book is a fitting work to round out Old’s monumental, comprehensive series written by a preacher for preachers on the history of preaching in the Christian church.

The contemporary church dismisses Christianity’s foundational Scriptures at its own peril. However, the teachings of the Old Testament are less and less at the center of congregational preaching and conversation. The early church fathers–visionaries such as Augustine, Origen, and Tertullian–embraced the Hebrew Scriptures, allowing the Old Testament to play a central role in the formation of their beliefs. As today’s Christians struggle to relate to concepts such as the Jewish law and the prophets, pastors and laypersons benefit from looking through the lenses of these thoughtful pioneers. This latest volume in the Evangelical Ressourcement series helps the Old Covenant to come alive.

Believers In Dallas-Forth Worth Are Better Prepared To Find A New Church Home After Reading Appointment With Destiny By Bishop George Ofori-Nyadu

Believers In Dallas-Forth Worth Are Better Prepared To Find A New Church Home After Reading Appointment With Destiny By Bishop George Ofori-Nyadu

Arlington, TX — Sunday, April 11, 2010 — Before you invest you and your family’s time in finding a new church home in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, check with expert minister Bishop George Ofori-Nyadu, president and founder of All Nations International Church. After having preached to thousands of people from all over the world and from different walks of life, Bishop George understands the challenges that families face in finding a church home. Whether you are seeking a new church home for your family this year or you are seeking a family-friendly community of worshippers to visit next Sunday, Bishop George’s book, “Appointment With Destiny” can empower your search and make your destination: All Nations International Church located in the heart of Arlington, TX close to the Cowboys stadium. 

The Holy Bible promises that if you “Ask, it will be given unto you; seek and you shall find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Bishop George’s book, “Appointment With Destiny” demonstrates how you and your family can claim this promise in your search for a new church home. The book opens the door to the right type of spiritual knowledge that families deserve from their spiritual leaders today. 

According to Bishop George, “Human beings are not born to roam about in life instead they are born to fulfill a specific purpose in life.” Finding a new church home for you and your family can be like scheduling a series of appointments with a doctor’s office. The best doctors empower their patients with the right information after each appointment. This is the reason why at All Nations International Church, Bishop George empowers people with the right information to fulfill their destiny.

The church’s Ministry for Men emboldens each man to strive for a personal relationship with God in order to discover his uniqueness as a husband, father, businessman, and leader. The Youth Ministry engages the minds of young adults to share their love for God and benefit from fellowship with other like-minded teenagers. The Children Ministry provides a fun, safe, and nurturing environment for children to learn about Jesus.

The special gift Bishop George is offering you is a FREE copy of his best selling book, “Appointment with Destiny” for a friend. When you buy your copy, a FREE copy is included for a friend or family member.

The Survival of Two Cities: West Berlin in 1948 and New Orleans in 2005 Remembered by St Paul Episcopal Church Book Club During Their Summer Reading of ‘Eagles Over Berlin – Flight for Love and Freedom’


New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) June 17, 2008

The historical novel about the Berlin Airlift is dedicated to the basic human values of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity expressed by the French Revolution and remembered on July 14, 2008 on Bastille Day in New Orleans in the Book Club of St Paul Episcopal Church. In the city, founded by French immigrants and worldwide renowned by its French Quarter, the discussion about the events of the Berlin Airlift on this very day receives a special aura.

The two cities are also linked through destruction and survival. Who could better understand the struggle for survival of West Berliners in 1948 and 1949 than citizens of New Orleans living the terrifying experience of Hurricane Katrina in 2005?

In war-torn Germany, John, American pilot, and Esther, holocaust survivor, meet and fall in love in the turmoil of history. From the Oval Office in Washington, to Stalin’s study in Moscow, from elegant Paris to blockaded Berlin, we follow the events of the blockade. Through Soviet harassment in the air corridors, plane crashes in Soviet territory and their ultimate sacrifice, we experience the heroism of the pilots.

Despite cold, hunger and darkness, the people of Berlin hold out against hostilities. Soviet spies and secret negotiations lead to the lifting of the blockade, but the victory tragically separates John and Esther. By a twist of destiny, they will meet again forty years later, in 1989. When the Berlin Wall comes down, they will understand the purpose of their lives.

“I was in New York on September 11, 2001 and lived in first line the dramatic events of the terrorist attack. I experienced how life took over the destruction. Life is always taking over; life is divine. This experience was the motivation to write the book. I feel honored by the attention of St Paul’s Book Club. Thank you!”

The book is available through INGRAM and LSI, and worldwide distributed by Amazon. If you purchase your books through http://www.ecampus.com/stpaulsepiscopal St. Paul’s will receive 5% of your purchase.
