  • How The Church Lost The Truth


    It should have been so simple. There was the Bible, God’s authoritative and complete word for mankind. His gift to us. One volume of sixty six books in all, from In the beginning to amen. One basic message. Choose Life, He said. So what did we do? We chose … denominations, 38,000 of them. One book, thousands of interpretations.

    Snake handlers in Kansas, Prosperity teachers in Washington, Liberationists in El Salvador, Gay Bishops in New Hampshire, New Age rectors in London. They all claim the Bible as their inspiration and rulebook. Once this book is opened, why is it that folk seem to see different things? One book, one message, one Babel. How come? Where can the Truth be found or has the Church lost The Truth?

    This explosive book tells the whole sad story of what actually happened to the Church over the last two thousand years and how it managed to lose its focus and take on so many ideas from Greek philosophy that Christianity has just become a melting point of truth mixed up with very strange ideas.

    If Jesus were to return today, which Church – if any – could He call his own?

    In this challenging, provocative but entertaining book the author examines what has happened to some key battlegrounds for Truth and asks, where did those ideas come from?

    *How did God kick things off?
    *How does He deal with His covenant people?
    *Who does He let into heaven?
    *What is Hell really like?
    *How is He really going to wrap things up?

    Some of the answers will astound you and you may also be prompted to ask the question, how has the Church managed to lose so much Truth?

    Prepare to be challenged to the very core of your faith. Continue Reading How The Church Lost The Truth

  • 95 The Ideas That Birthed The Reformation


    In 1517, an unknown Augustinian monk, informed by his growing belief that salvation is by faith alone, published and distributed a stark criticism of papal abuses in the Catholic Church. In doing so, Martin Luther lit the spark for what would become the Protestant Reformation.

    What became known as the 95 Theses was a series of statements expressing concern with corruption within the Church, primarily the selling of indulgences to the people as a means covering them from their sins.

    For the 500th anniversary of Luther’s revolutionary writing, Whitaker House is combining each thesis with an excerpt from one of his later works to provide a convenient way to understand the ideas and concepts that became the seeds of the Protestant Reformation.

  • Many Tongues One Faith


    The history of Franciscan parishes in the United States offers a glimpse into the struggles and triumphs of priests, sisters, and laity attempting to live out their faith amidst the challenges of the nineteenth and twentieth century: religious bigotry, racial and ethnic strife, and cultural and religious change.

    Readers ofthis work will learn about
    –the friar who persuaded his fellowPolish immigrants to engage in an ill-fated settlement experiment in Texas,leading to the priest’s departure from the community under threats of violence.
    –a successful effort at Keshena, Wisconsin to minister to the Menominee utilizing catechetical material in the natives’ language.
    –one of the first Italian churches in New York City, St. Anthony of Padua, where a multiethnic parish gave rise to disputes over leadership in the community.
    –the parish of St. Lawrence of Brindisi in Los Angeles where the friars ministered to an impoverished community located near theepicenter of the 1965 Watts riots.
    –the serene setting of rural northern Ohio where a Marian shrine has been the siteof dozens of claimed miraculous healings.

    While the portraits of fourteen Franciscan parishes contained in this work are diverse -geographically, ethnically, and chronologically – they collectively witness tothe distinctiveness of the Franciscan charism of embracing poverty, fosteringcommunity, offering reconciliation, and serving those on society’s margins.

    Theirs is a story of how Franciscan parishes have truly spoken many tongues to build one faith. Continue Reading Many Tongues One Faith

  • Voice Of Empathy


    Where do we find religion? In places of worship? For many, it can be found in the activities of daily life, from shopping for groceries and making dinner to falling in love and raising children. How do historians write this history? How do they record the significance of religious culture expressed through the mundane and the extraordinary-from letters to magazines to praying for miracles at shrines? This study offers more than a century’s worth of religion lived through media, particularly Franciscan media.

    From the late nineteenth century through the present, Franciscan media have offered Catholics in the United States ways to reflect on and react to the issues of daily life: family, sex, children, obedience to church doctrine (from dietary requirements to treatment of divorced Catholics), communism, and even the moral dimensions of popular culture, especially movies. Interaction through media helped shape identity, revealing the difficulty of living as a Catholic in modern America. Franciscans wrote for magazines, produced radio shows, developed film projects, and understood that to reach people, they needed to appeal to the heart as well as to the head-to speak to the emotion of living one’s Catholicism as well as thinking about what Catholicism means. Voice of Empathy uses a spectrum of sources, from letters to priests in print magazines such as St. Anthony Messenger to scripts for shows such as The Hour of St. Francis to the multi-platform work of Mother Angelica and
    Father Richard Rohr, to highlight the fluid engagement between faith and the secular world. The social, economic, political, and cultural developments that gave shape to Franciscan media also became the context in which Franciscans forged particular approaches to their pastoral ministry. Of particular note, Voice of Empathy deals extensively with the central role women have played in Franciscan media as consumers, producers, and shapers of lived Catholicism.

  • Foxes Book Of Martyrs (Revised)


    In 1563, John Foxe began a memorial of martyrs starting with Stephen, the first to die for the cause of Christ, and ending with the most recent martyrs of his day; those killed during Bloody Mary’s reign. He knew that dangers lay in forgetting the martyrs–in being insensitive to their struggles. Martyrdom is not a thing of the past; every day the Christian church is persecuted in countries all over the world. More Christians were afflicted in the twentieth century then all the past centuries combined. If the Church is not reminded of the cost to follow Christ, she will die. Be vulnerable to the cries of the martyrs. Let their courage, their faith, their love–touch your life. This updated version includes reports on modern martyrs of the 20th and 21st century, a full color timeline of selected events and people for historical reference, and has been carefully edited into Modern American English for today’s reader.

    About The Author

    Additional Info
    There may be no group in American society that is more talked about but so little understood as Evangelical Christians. Sometimes dismissed as violent fundamentalists and ignorant flat earthers, few can doubt the political, cultural, and religious significance of the Evangelicals. Barry Hankins puts the Evangelical movement in historical perspective, reaching back to its roots in the Great Awakening of the 18th century and leading up to the formative moments of contemporary conservative Protestantism. Taking on key topics such as the standing of science, the authority of scripture, and gender and racial equality, Hankins analyzes what is most essential for us to understand today about this potent movement.

  • How The Choir Converted The World


    Music is the most effective delivery system for feelings-love, joy, sadness, glory. The early Church Fathers knew that music also has power over minds, and they used that power to maximum effect, writing hymns through which the early Christians would learn, retain, and spread the Gospel message. In How the Choir Converted the World, best-selling author Mike Aquilina demonstrates how the earliest Christians used music to transform a world that desperately needed transforming. As Aquilina suggests, If we did it once, we can do it again. Continue Reading How The Choir Converted The World

    Soto informs us about a movement that gives priority to Christian unity. This is the history of the Restoration Movement of Stone and Campbell.
    Many today would ask, what do these people from a time more than 200 years ago have to do with us – Latin Americans, inhabitants of enormous cities of cement, Indians of the high Andean plateau, blacks from the Hispanic Caribbean region, immigrants from the basin of the Rio del Plata, inhabitants of the shantytowns and slums? The answer is given in this book. The title insinuates it. The founders of this movement never wanted it to be isolated and static, rather they called it this present reform. Upon reading this book you will discover that the principles and ideas from then can be applied to the church today Continue Reading Reforma Presente

  • Noah Webster And The Reformation Of America


    Noah Webster affected the course of education in early America more than any other person. He wrote a series of textbooks including a speller, grammar, reader, and U.S. history. His famous Blue-Back Speller sold over 100 million copies from 1783 through the 1800s, and was designed to allow individuals to be self-taught. Webster wrote the first exhaustive English dictionary, translated his own version of the Bible, helped to found a college, started the first magazine in America, and formed a newspaper. He was one of the first persons to publicly promote a constitutional convention in the 1780s. He secured copyright legislation on the state and national levels, and he served in civil government in many capacities.

    Webster spent his entire adult life working to reform America and to provide a foundation of liberty, happiness, and prosperity for all citizens. He understood that ideas have consequences, that the battle for the future of our country would be waged in the market place of ideas, and that those adhering to Godly truth must enter into the battle in every conceivable sphere. Webster’s life gives us a great example of how to bring reform to America, or any nation, today. A look at his life and accomplishments reveal what we need to do, where we need to be involved, strategies for bringing reform, proper motives and reasons for action, and the fruit we can expect from planting Godly seeds.

  • Biblical Revival And The Transformation Of Nations


    America, like Humpty Dumpty, has fallen off the wall and is broken. Government (the king’s horses and men) cannot put us together. Our only hope is for God to tear open the heavens and come down and do awesome things. We need God to revive us as a people, to bring His life to our society. Not only does America, but also all nations have a desperate need for Biblical revival and transformation.

    The history of revivals as briefly presented in this book gives us great hope that the living God can revive us. Just as God did in Ireland through the influence of Patrick in the fifth century, in much of Europe through the Protestant Reformation, and in America during the First Great Awakening, He can do in America and any nation today. When Biblical revival comes, not only will individuals be supernaturally changed, but the entire culture (including families, churches, businesses, laws, governments, and the economy) will be transformed. In addition to examining many historical revivals and their good fruit, this book includes: how to bring revival and transformation to your nation, and what a transformed society would look like.

  • Canon Law Explained


    Not only inefficiency, but frustration, disorder, anger, and injustice threaten all human endeavors, no matter how pure their motives or high their ideals. That’s why successful organizations always create employee handbooks and clear procedure manuals that delineate where authority lies, how conflicts are to be resolved, and, above all, how each organization’s mission is (and is not) to be accomplished.

    Is it any wonder then that the Catholic Church comprised not of 200 persons but 1.2 billion members in 200 countries also governs itself by means of a handbook, which it calls the Code of Canon Law?

    Because handbooks and manuals concern themselves with the day-to-day inner working of organizations, they often reveal more than do news releases about the actual purposes and genuine spirit of organizations: a fact that’s particularly true in the case of the Catholic Church.

    Indeed, if you want to know the Church for who She is, you need to be familiar with the Code of Canon Law. Unfortunately, it contains over 1,752 rules (or canons). Among them, you’ll find fascinating canons that lay out the Church’s official principles and procedures governing matters as various as abbots and annulments, scandals and Sacraments, monks and missions, bishops and books, priests and popes, synods and sacraments, homeschoolers, hostile witnesses, baptisms, burials, parishes, penance, confessions, Councils, impotence, imprimaturs, and, even marriages to the person who murdered your spouse!

    Thankfully, Vatican expert and veteran author Fr. Laurence Spiteri has in the pages of Canon Law Explained relieved you of the need to read all 1,752 of them (fascinating or not). Here he acquaints you with the fundamental canons by which the Church seeks to bring about, as it declares in the very last canon, the purpose all of them serve: The salvation of souls, which must always be the supreme law in the Church.

  • Awakening In Wales


    Watchman Nee called it the greatest known revival in church history. On October 31, 1904, Evan Roberts, a twenty-six-year-old former miner, returned home from a ministry training program, having quit at the urging of the Holy Spirit. That night, he joined sixteen other young people at a village chapel, and from that humble origin sprang a spiritual revival that roared across the hills and valleys of Wales. Thousands of souls were welcomed into God’s kingdom. Even the press could not ignore the changes occurring and eagerly reported on Roberts’ every move.

    As suddenly as he had appeared, Roberts vanished from the world stage, only to reemerge twenty years later. What happened? How did God work so miraculously?

    Jessie Penn-Lewis was well-acquainted with the revival, and with its leader, Evan Roberts. Her clear and concise history of the events of that time remains a treasure for all those who pray for revival to return in our day. Continue Reading Awakening In Wales

  • Pentecost To Present Book 3


    Without knowing the Holy Spirit’s work in history, we cannot possibly understand what He is doing today, much less prepare for what He will do.

    In this third and final installment, the reader will learn how Charles Parham founded the modern Pentecostal baptism with speaking in tongues, how Evan Roberts gained worldwide attention through the 1904-05 Welsh revival, and how William Seymour spearheaded an international Pentecostal movement from Azusa Street in Los Angeles in 1906. The reader will learn how Pentecostalism spawned new denominations, national and international ministries, global renewal movements, and inspired innovators to take modern revivalism to a whole new level. Then when Pentecostalism penetrated American Middle-class Protestantism, many observers began speaking of a third force in Christianity. Meanwhile, revolutionary changes in the Catholic Church opened the door for the Catholic Charismatic Renewal. Then, just as the charismatic movement was beginning to subside in America, it went global, as charismatic mega churches, Bible schools, and television networks took the message of renewal to the world. The twenty-first century has witnessed a dramatic shift in Christianity to the Southern Hemisphere fueled, in part, by the global rise of Pentecostalism, with many new movements on the horizon.

  • Respect : Understanding Caribbean British Christianity


    The author investigates the context of Caribbean British Christianity through the prism of their ethnicity and their faith. Christians from the Caribbean have settled in Britain since the late 1940s. In spite of high levels of rejection and misunderstanding they have shaped a new British identity which is dynamic, empowering and challenging. The author argues that this no longer majors in the victim-based dialectic of oppression/ liberation. It is an unapologetic and prophetic identity which seeks to be respected and understood.
