The principles of evangelical theology are in neat sequence here: Read the Bible and you will learn of the “misery of all mankind,” that since Adam’s fall all suffer under the power of sin; you will also learn that God has made one plan for ‘the salvation of all mankind’ in the death and resurrection of his son Jesus Christ; and you will further learn that the only way to grasp this salvation is by having a “true and lively faith” in Christ as your Savior.Read more
"I wanted it to be somewhat scholarly," Pearson told Virtueonline. "But I wanted it to be readable and profitable for the average Christian." Pearson found the solution: put into the book's endnotes brief scholarly discussions and links to further materials, but write the text itself in simple language.Read more
Author Thad Barnum has achieved this in a very remarkable way. Through a series of life stories, many of which are drawn from his own life, Bishop Barnum leads his readers in a series of devotional reflections that are truly engaging, biblically affirming and takes the reader into the souls of other peoples' lives and how they engage God in times of triumph and tragedy.Read more

The son of the present archbishop of the diocese (Peter Jensen), the nephew of the influential dean of the cathedral (Philip Jensen), and a faculty member of Moore where he was formed as an Anglican minister, Jensen writes as a true insider. His book is rightly subtitled "An Apology" (that is, a defense).Read more
Guinness points to the current international economic crisis which is due not to hostilities between European countries, but within them - perhaps most notably, a refusal on the part of one generation to curtail current benefits or entitlements even if it bankrupts those around them - which is as much a matter of character as of economics.Read more
Searingly honest reflections that confront the painful truths of human existence within the embrace of God's redemptive forgiveness and family love. A healthy antidote to spiritual perfectionism and self-righteousness.

The images in The Sacred Castle capture moments of high energy and quiet ritual. In one, Black speaks to a packed nave. The Sacred Castle is light on text. Other than Black's one-page introduction, it offers only dust-jacket copy that quotes the Rt. Rev. Charles E.
