Encounters With Jesus


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

New York Times bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet Timothy Keller explores how people are changed by meeting Jesus personally—and how we can be changed encountering him today. The people who met Jesus Christ in person faced the same big life questions we face today. Like most of us, the answers handed down to them didn’t seem to work in the real world. But when they met Jesus, things immediately started to change for them. It seems he not only had the answers—he was the answer. In Encounters with Jesus, Timothy Keller shows how the central events and meetings in Jesus’ life can change our own lives forever. "Keller's work belongs on the bookshelf of every serious Bible student." —Examiner "Keller has mined the gold from these texts of Scripture, and any Christian is bound to have their minds expanded and hearts stirred." —Grace for Sinners

The Christ Of The Miracle Stories


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

"Calling on her almost encyclopedic knowledge of conditions in the first-century Mediterranean world, Professor Cotter discusses the miracle stories reported in the Gospel of Mark in terms of the likely reaction of contemporary people upon seeing them or hearing of them. This enables her to portray the Jesus of these stories in terms of his divine authority and power and also as an example of how his followers are to treat those to whom they proclaim the gospel. The book is an excellent source for both historical information and theological reflection."--Paul J. Achtemeier, Union Presbyterian Seminary, Richmond, Virginia "In this engaging book, Professor Cotter presents the best explanation to date of why Jesus' followers narrated the stories of his mighty deeds as they did. She points us both to the unusually bold, even outrageous, speech of the petitioners and to Jesus' exemplary use of his power to inspire his followers to treat compassionately those who deserve rebuke and rejection."--S. Scott Bartchy, UCLA "Wendy Cotter's penetrating analysis and her formidable knowledge of the Greco-Roman world are brought to bear on the encounters between Jesus and the forward, pushy, and insistent petitioners of the Gospel miracle stories. Yielding a stream of fresh insights, she shows that the miracle stories were not only attestations of Jesus' power, intended simply to amaze. Cotter shows that the miracle stories serve as anecdotes revealing the face of Jesus--his soul, his virtue--to those who long to know what he was like and to those who strive to be like him."--Graham H. Twelftree, Regent University School of Divinity "In this exciting new study, Wendy Cotter draws on a wide range of documentation from the Greco-Roman and Jewish historical contexts to explain the characteristics of the petitioners of Jesus across different categories of miracle stories. She likewise examines the virtues of Jesus as portrayed in the miracle stories. The result is an engaging new study in which readers will encounter, for instance, the boldness of a Bartimaeus or a leper together with a Jesus who demonstrates epieikia and a profound philanthrōpia. I highly recommend this book to a range of readers."--Elaine Wainwright, University of Auckland

Christian readers of the New Testament study the great stories about Jesus through the lens of western culture. In this series of books, Gary Burge uses his extensive knowledge of the first century world and the Middle East to offer insights not available to the average person. Each book will develop important cultural themes and wrap them around well-known New Testament passages. And the result will be insights rarely gained elsewhere. See Jesus through the eyes of two men and three women. Each character in the story—a tax collector, a Phoenician woman, a centurion, etc.—brings along elements from their own world now hidden from us because we do not share the culture of Jesus' world. Insights from the first century Middle East abound to unlock profound insights about Jesus and his audience.

Face To Face With Jesus


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

It starts as a story ripped from the headlines of the war-torn Middle East. An extremist faction of Islam bombs a church during a service. The one door in the back isn't big enough for five hundred people trying to escape. Some are killed. But after the chaos and fire and smoke, one young woman comes back to life. In this thrilling true tale, death does not have the final word. From the first time Samaa heard the Lord Jesus calling her out of Islam into faith in Him, till she met Him face to face in heaven, her life is marked by God's supernatural love and power. Full of hope and encouragement, and overflowing with Jesus' love, her riveting account reveals the power of God to break through any circumstance--and is a moving reminder that, in a place beyond what we can imagine, we have a Savior waiting to welcome us face to face.

Encounter Jesus


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

“God really is real! I never experienced him before now.” “I felt like there had to be something more--I think I’ve found it!” “God doesn’t just love everyone--he loves me!” It’s exciting when someone has a living encounter with the God of the universe. A lightbulb goes on, and everything feels new. But with that sense of exhilaration comes the realization: in order to take one’s faith seriously, things must change. “What do I do now?” “How can I keep this alive?” The authors of Encounter Jesus believe that what’s really being asked is: “Now that I’ve discovered Jesus, how do I become his disciple? What do I have to do to continue to encounter him?” An encounter with Jesus is a very significant experience, and Fr. Dave and Deacon Ralph show readers how to move from discovering their faith to following Jesus wherever he leads them along the path of discipleship.

The Face Of Jesus


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The Presence of God became explicitly real to me during several encounters I had with Jesus during a time of prayer. Visions of Jesus Christ were being displayed to me where I could joyfully yet painfully study and observe different features to the face of Jesus. As I was provoked to further contemplate the Scriptures, I entered into beautiful moments of seeing the various facets of Jesus; ranging from the suffering face of Jesus to the blissful face of Jesus and everything in between. This book will unveil visual aspects to the face of Jesus while revealing more and more of His Presence. What was seen will be conveyed for readers to personally relate and further imagine the fact that Jesus was fully man on the earth and not just divine. In this book, one will come to be awakened to the fact that Jesus truly loves and desires intimate fellowship with His people - this was the very joy set before Him: our hearts beating for Him.
