Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope Audiobook

Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope

Author: Esau Mccaulley Narrator: Esau Mccaulley Release Date: September 2020

Growing up in the American South, Esau McCaulley knew firsthand the ongoing struggle between despair and hope that marks the lives of some in the African American context. A key element in the fight for hope, he discovered, has long been the practice of Bible reading and interpretation that comes out of traditional Black churches. This ecclesial tradition is often disregarded or viewed with suspicion by much of the wider church and academy, but it has something vital to say. At a time in which some within the African American community are questioning the place of the Christian faith in the struggle for justice, New Testament scholar McCaulley argues that reading Scripture from the perspective of Black church tradition is invaluable for connecting with a rich faith history and addressing the urgent issues of our times. He advocates for a model of interpretation that involves an ongoing conversation between the collective Black experience and the Bible, in which the particular questions coming out of Black communities are given pride of place and the Bible is given space to respond by affirming, challenging, and, at times, reshaping Black concerns. McCaulley demonstrates this model with studies on how Scripture speaks to topics often overlooked by white interpreters, such as ethnicity, political protest, policing, and slavery.

The Maker Versus the Takers: What Jesus Really Said About Social Justice and Economics Audiobook

The Maker Versus the Takers: What Jesus Really Said About Social Justice and Economics

Author: Jerry Bowyer Narrator: William Sarris Release Date: September 2020

A close reading of the Gospels, taking history and archeology into account, demolishes the myth of a socialist Jesus. Theologians virtually ignore the economic commentary in the Bible. In the few cases where it gets any attention, economic commentary in the Gospels and other New Testament writings tend to lapse into simplistic class warfare nostrums. Liberation theologians import Marxism wholesale (but they try to sell it retail) into theology. Academic historians of first-century Palestine/Judea have been pushing an account of a poor peasant Jesus leading a poor peasant's revolt based on the idea of mass displaced workers in Lower Galilee. The problem is the actual archeological findings paint a picture of an industrious and entrepreneurial economy during Jesus's time there. Reading the Gospels in light of archeology and history, which are now available to us, gives us a very different picture than the one you've been told regarding what Jesus taught about work and money.

World Changers: How God Uses Ordinary People to Do Extraordinary Things Audiobook

World Changers: How God Uses Ordinary People to Do Extraordinary Things

Author: Greg Laurie Narrator: David Cochran Heath Release Date: September 2020

The Bible is filled with stories of God using ordinary people in extraordinary ways to change the world. Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Rahab, and others were just regular, imperfect people who chose to obey God's call-and what a difference that made! God is still in the business of transforming his followers into world changers, and that includes you. He may be calling you to something big, like moving to Africa to start a ministry. Or he may be asking you to start small, like simply leaving your comfort zone and stretching your faith to try something you haven't before. In either case, it's his power working through you that will impact you and everyone around you. Join Greg Laurie as he shows you how God has called and equipped you. Get ready to change the world.

She Walked Before Us: Grace, Courage, and Strength from 12 Women of the Old Testament

Author: Jill Eileen Smith Narrator: Pam Ward Release Date: September 2020

Sometimes life is hard. We walk through loss, heartache, and disappointment. But thankfully we don't do it alone. God is with us every step of the way, just as he was with the women of ancient times whose lives, struggles, trials, and triumphs are recorded in Scripture. Drawing on her extensive research into women of the Old Testament, novelist Jill Eileen Smith shows us how we can glean wisdom and strength from our trials just like women such as Miriam, Rahab, Deborah, Ruth, Hannah, Abigail, Bathsheba, and more. You'll discover what these ancient women did right, what they did wrong, and how God used the hard things in their lives to make them into the women he always meant for them to be.

But We See Jesus Audiobook

But We See Jesus

Author: Stephen Kaung Narrator: Josh Miller Release Date: September 2020

Christianity is Jesus Christ. It is not the teaching, doctrine, system, or organization of Christ. Rather, it is Jesus Christ himself. We need to see him as God sees him. Yet this can only come about by revelation from above. The Holy Spirit will reveal Jesus to us. And when we do see him as God sees him, we will fall down and worship. Such, then, is the intent of this series of messages, whose overarching theme is best summed up in the author's choice of title to the entire series: 'But We See Jesus' (Hebrews 2:9a). All 19 messages were delivered by the author before a Christian audience in Richmond, Virginia, over a three-year period, commencing in the year 1992. May God use this volume to inspire his people to see the Savior and Lord we have, so that we may truly worship him with all our hearts and love him with all our heart, mind, will, and strength. Jesus alone is worthy!

Now We See the Church Audiobook

Now We See the Church

Author: Stephen Kaung Narrator: Josh Miller Release Date: September 2020

This series of messages on the life of the church, the body of Christ serves as a follow-up companion volume to 'But We See Jesus'; Messages on the Life of the Lord Jesus Christ. Having come to see Christ Jesus, we are now ready to see His church, about which Jesus had declared this: “I will build my [church], and hades’ gates shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18b). From this declaration we realize that the church is not the product of the work of man, but it is the Lord Jesus himself who builds the church. Hence, in Scripture, the church is called “the Christ” (I Corinthians 12:12c; Ephesians 3:4b, 8b Darby). The New Testament book of Acts gives us a panoramic view of the churches in the first century. It also provides us with a prophetic picture of the churches throughout the centuries. As we review the histories of these various churches that are narrated for us in Acts, may we learn all the lessons God wants us to learn from them.

Christian Liberty: The Art of Mixing Law and Grace Audiobook

Christian Liberty: The Art of Mixing Law and Grace

Author: Terri Buckingham Narrator: Terri Buckingham Release Date: September 2020

“I go to prepare a place for you.” These are the words of Jesus to His church. No doubt He has some awesome plans for “you.” But who is you?  We need to understand something: God is. And He doesn’t change who He is because of what we believe about Him. The fact is, He is holy, and He wants us to be holy, too. Now the Bible says “Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom.” And this perplexes us. How can God say, “Be ye holy for I am holy,” in one breath, and then, “All things are lawful,” in another? This is a question we need to answer in these last days, because with the end comes judgment. Now if we truly have freedom of conduct, the church is in good shape. But what if we’ve misunderstood? What if liberty refers not to freedom to live as we please, but rather liberty from sin? That could change things. There’s only one judgment. One chance. We can’t afford to get this wrong.

SANTO ROSARIO

Author: Fidem Dei Narrator: Alicia Rodríguez, Santiago Brey Release Date: September 2020

(Versión castellano - Acento España nativo) El Santo Rosario es un rezo tradicional católico que conmemora veinte «misterios» de la vida de Jesucristo y de la Virgen María, recitando después de anunciar cada uno de ellos un padre nuestro, diez avemarías y un gloria al Padre. «La Iglesia ha reconocido siempre una eficacia particular al Rosario, confiándole, mediante su recitación comunitaria y su práctica constante, las causas más difíciles»; San Juan Pablo II dijo: «Por medio del rosario los fieles reciben abundantes gracias, desde las mismas manos de la Madre del Redentor».

Comparison Girl: Lessons from Jesus on Me-Free Living in a Measure-Up World Audiobook

Comparison Girl: Lessons from Jesus on Me-Free Living in a Measure-Up World

Author: Shannon Popkin Narrator: Shannon Popkin Release Date: September 2020

Do you constantly compare yourself with others? On social media, in your neighborhood, at church, or in the school drop-off lane, do you push yourself to prove that you measure up . . . and then feel ashamed when you don't? Measuring yourself against others isn't healthy. And it isn't God's plan. In fact, the way of Jesus is completely upside down from this measure-up world. He invites us to follow him and be restored to freedom, confidence, and joy. Join Shannon Popkin as she shares what she has discovered about her own measure-up fears and get-ahead pride. With her trademark humor and straightforward honesty, she's created this six-week Bible study to explore the conversations Jesus had and the stories he shared with people who--like us--were comparing themselves. Leave measure-up comparison behind and connect with those around you by choosing Jesus's me-free way of living: lifting others up and pouring yourself out!
