BOOK EXCERPT:

Almost everyone has an opinion about Jesus, be it conscious or unconscious, rational or irrational. But what do you make of him? And why do you believe what you believe about Jesus? Graham McFarlane characteristically comes from an original angle in this stimulating book. He encourages you not only to acknowledge what you believe about Jesus, but to ask yourself why you believe it. This highly accessible and thought-provoking book is part of the Theological Foundations series, which explores the main tenets of Christianity at a popular level. It is humorously illustrated, anecdotal, clear, and concise, whilst allowing you to contemplate your faith and arrive at an informed and objective opinion.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Many beliefs practiced in mainstream Christianity--some much older than New Testament writings--find their roots in a blend of ancient pagan worship, philosophy, and allegorical interpretation. The early church in Rome, familiar with these ancient beliefs and practices, attempted to Christianize them and then force fed them to the churches of the Roman Empire. And just like church groups back then adopted those beliefs and practices, Christians today continue to adopt questionable beliefs from the society around them. Do You Believe Jesus? presents a theology that dares to confront mainstream beliefs, most of which are cloaked in tradition. It finds its basis in the words of Jesus--those he personally taught--and in the writings of the early church fathers. It is an alternate theology and may have some serendipitous similarities to other theologies that are also out of the mainstream, and it will challenge mainstream beliefs that in no way represent the gospel as taught by Jesus. If you have questioned whether or not your church and its beliefs are taught by Jesus, then it is time to explore what Jesus actually taught. Or if you do not attend church and do not know what to believe, then listening to Jesus's words can start you on a new path, settling questions in your mind and providing peace of mind by exposing new truths.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The message of To Believe in Jesus is heartening, if disconcerting, for it stands a common assumption on its head. The way to holiness is not through dramatic renunciation, and holiness itself is not just for the 'specialists', clergy and religious. Holiness cannot be struggled for and won - it can only be given, and all that is necessary is that we should ask. As soon as we cease to strive for virtue, concentrating attention uselessly on ourselves, and instead recognise our weakness, our need, the way is open to encounter God and the holiness of Jesus which is His gift.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Why do you believe what you believe about the Holy Sprit? Are your beliefs based on current trends of thought in the church or the world around you, or do they fit in with what the Bible and Christian tradition teaches? Does it matter? What are the consequences of your beliefs? In this thought-provoking survey, Graham McFarlane draws on the insight of ancient and modern thinkers to work out the implications of the biblical witness to the Spirit for the individual believer, and for the church as a reconciling community. Combining clear teaching with practical applications, this book encourages readers to think through their faith.

BOOK EXCERPT:

You might know what you believe … but do you know that you believe? While many Christians know that they are supposed to believe, they don’t know if they actually do believe. Stop wondering if you have false faith, spurious faith, temporary faith, intellectual faith, or head faith instead of heart faith. All such terms are unhelpful and unbiblical, and cause many Christians to wonder if they have truly believed. By reading this book, you will not only discover how faith works, but also how to know that you believe. This book also answers some of your most pressing questions about faith, such as the relationship between faith and works, whether or not God gives the gift of faith, and how it is possible to be certain about your faith. This book also provides explanations for several key Bible passages about faith.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The cross of Christ has long been a historic and revered religious icon as well as a divine dividing line within humanity. The powerful Pure Flix film Do You Believe? ushers the timeless question of the meaning of the cross to a deeply personal place: What does it mean to me? Is it only a symbol or truly salvation? The Do You Believe? Devotional is a 40-day journey centered around the eternal evidence and powerful proof of the great love of God with the sacrifice offered for humanity associated with only One, His Son, Jesus Christ. In the film, a challenging question is brought before our politically correct culture: If you were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? Regardless of your own answer to such a question, or the place in life you may find yourself, these 40 days can be an investment into your future and more importantly, your eternity as you pursue a deeper level of faith for yourself. The Do You Believe? Devotional book is a daily walk through the word of God with inspiring quotes from the film. It offers a respite from the rush of life and the peace and hope made available only through the cross.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Named a 2007 Book of Distinction by the Sir John Templeton Foundation. The special edition of this award winning book celebrates the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin. Since, even before, the publication of Darwin's seminal work on evolution, science and religion have often been at odds. Even today culture wars continue to rage. How can I be faithful to God and fully enjoy the progress of science? Who is Charles Darwin and what did he actually say? Can you believe in God and evolution? Does teaching evolution corrupt our social values? How can you connect science and faith? Can science be a Christian vocation? So how can we interpret the creation story in the Bible? Authors Ted Peters and Martinez Hewlett give a balanced discussion of the impact of evolution to help church leaders understand the values at stake. They make the convincing case that Christians can connect their faith in God with a scientific understanding of evolution with integrity
