The Message of Acts

Release Date: 2014-05-02
Genre: Religion

A 1991 Christianity Today Readers' Choice Award The Spirit moves the church into the world. That is how it has always been since the day of Pentecost when the Spirit brought thousands from many countries into the body of Christ. With the breadth and scholarly care that have marked John Stott's years of ministry, this book opens to us the early days of the church as recorded by Luke in the book of Acts. The experiences of the early church have much to say about issues that concern Christians today. What can Acts tell us about tongues and other extraordinary manifestations of the Spirit? How should churches structure themselves--with elders, deacons, pastors or all three? What should a normal Christian conversion look like? And, of course, how should the church reach out into the world with the message of salvation? These and many other topics are handled with a pastoral heart and an unwavering commitment to the authority of God's Word in our lives. As Stott concludes, "The Acts of the Apostles have long ago finished; the acts of the followers of Jesus will continue until the end of the world."

Die Taten des Petrus

Genre: Fiction

Der frühchristliche Roman aus der römischen Kaiserzeit entwirft eindrucksvolle Szenen, in denen sich der Apostel Petrus mit einem verwegenen Gegner auseinandersetzt. Der Gegner, Simon der Magier, gibt vor, wie Petrus Wunder wirken zu können, und hat bereits viele Christen abspenstig gemacht. In Rom treten die beiden in einem öffentlichen Wettstreit gegeneinander an. Petrus kann die größeren Wunder wirken und so über seinen Gegner siegen; dadurch gewinnt er die zu dem Zauberer übergelaufene Gemeinde wieder für Christus. Doch als Petrus römische Frauen zur Keuschheit auch in der Ehe anstiftet, regen sich Gegenkräfte – und Petrus landet am Kreuz. Bernhard Lang erläutert den Roman und hat ihn erstmals allgemeinverständlich übersetzt.

The Message of Philippians

Author: J. Alec Motyer
Publisher: InterVarsity Press
ISBN: 9780830897964
Release Date: 2014-05-02
Genre: Religion

If you were in jail, what sort of letter would you write to your Christian friends? Would it focus on the difficulties--the poor food, cramped quarters and lonely isolation? Paul's letter to the Philippians, written from prison, has no hint of self-pity. The letter radiates joy--joy that Christ was proclaimed, joy in fellowship with the Philippian Christians and, above all, joy in Jesus himself. In this volume of the Bible Speaks Today series, Alec Motyer identifies three major themes that filled Paul's heart and mind as he wrote: the unity of the church, the person of Jesus and what he has achieved, and the call to live a life worthy of the gospel.

Release Date: 2014-05-02
Genre: Religion

To enclaves of young converts tucked away in the mountains of Asia Minor, Paul wrote what is perhaps the oldest document in the New Testament--the letter to the Galatians. What problems were they facing? Among a variety of religious authorities espousing different teachings, how were they to know who was right? How were men and women to be put right with God? How could Christians in the midst of a pagan culture live lives truly pleasing to God? 'Only one way--' ansered Paul, 'through Jesus Christ.' His answer holds true for us as well. The details of our struggle have changed since Paul's day, but the principles he sets forth are as timeless as the Lord he exalts. In this book John Stott helpf us to understand and apply the message of Galatians in the face of contemporary challenges to our faith.

Dass in Jesus Gott selbst zu den Menschen gekommen ist, zeigt sich schon in den Ereignissen um seine Geburt und Kindheit. Ist die Darstellung der Evangelien verlässlich? Davon hängt ab, ob der christliche Glaube wirklich trägt. "In der Armseligkeit der Geburt Jesu zeichnet sich das Große ab, in dem sich geheimnsvoll die Rettung der Menschen vollzieht." Joseph Ratzinger – Papst Benedikt XVI.
