Character of Theology, The: An Introduction to Its Nature, Task, and Purpose
By John R. Franke
How do you handle the crippling fear of losing your life after being diagnosed with cancer? What choices do you have when the recommended surgery will disable you for life? Where do you find natural healing remedies when medical authorities dismiss them as quackery?
Through the eyes of Richard J. Manley, cancer survivor, counselor and teacher, A Portrait for Healing answers these questions as Richard shares his experience using natural, non-invasive treatments to cure his cancer.
A Portrait for Healing is an emotional, yet factual, account of Richard's decision not to follow his surgeon's advice to have invasive surgery. Join Richard on his healing journey and learn:
· Holistic healing principles and practices
· How to understand and conquer your fears
· How to take control of your own healing
· The value of integrating spiritual, mental, emotional and physical healing
"(A Portrait for Healing) is a must read for all who are afraid of getting cancer, who have cancer, or who have had cancer.... It is the best resource guide for natural healing remedies I have seen." -- Bob Spears, Heartland Reviews
Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1-2 Samuel (Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture)
From InterVarsity Press
The history of the entry into the Promised Land followed by that of the period of the judges and early monarchy may not appear to readers today as a source for expounding the Christian faith. But the church fathers readily found parallels, or types, in the narrative that illumined the New Testament. An obvious link was the similarity in name between Joshua, Moses' successor, and Jesus--indeed, in Greek both names are identical. Thus Joshua was consistently interpreted as a type of Christ. So too was Samuel. David was recognized as an ancestor of Jesus, and parallels between their two lives were readily explored. And Ruth, in ready fashion, was seen as a type of the church.Among the most important sources for commentary on these books are the homilies of Origen, most of which are known to us through the Latin translations of Rufinus and Jerome. Only two running commentaries exist--one from Gregory of Nazianzus, one of the famous Cappadocian theologians, the other from Bede the Venerable. Another key source for the selections found here derives from question-and-answer format, such as Questions on the Heptateuch from Augustine, Questions on the Octateuch from Theodoret of Cyr and Thirty Questions on 1 Samuel from Bede. The remainder of materials come from a wide variety of occasional and doctrinal writings, which make mention of the biblical texts to support the arguments.Readers will find a rich treasure trove of ancient wisdom, some appearing here for the first time in English translation, that speaks with eloquence and challenging spiritual insight to the church today.
