Spirit Warriors: Strategies for the Battles Christian Men and Women Face Every Day by Stu Weber

836968

Pastor and former Green Beret captain Stu Weber reveals the crucial spiritual battles that all Christians face constantly, whether or not they are aware of them. “Somehow we have come to mistakenly associate spiritual warfare with charismatic personalities strutting across brightly lit platforms … whuppin’ up on evil spirits,” says Weber. “But spiritual warfare is so much more than a show.” With warm and winning counsel, the bestselling author/speaker warns of the very real perils readers face, giving them what they need to survive and thrive.

Paying attention to what is happening around you, daily, and to what the Word of God (Bible) is saying are two of the greatest elements to this present battle of Spiritual warfare. You MUST choose God’s word over the words of man. You MUST choose the full armor of God rather than the armor of this world…you will be severely unprepared.

A MUST read book with a MUST listen to message!

The Case for the Real Jesus: A Journalist Investigates Current Attacks on the Identity of Christ by Lee Strobel

case-for-the-real-jesus

What IS the truth about Jesus?

Today, the traditional picture of Jesus is under an intellectual onslaught from critical scholars, popular historians, TV documentaries, Hollywood movies, bestselling authors, Internet bloggers, and atheist think tanks. They’re capturing the public’s imagination with a radical new portrait of Jesus that bears scant resemblance to the picture historically embraced by the church.
How persuasive is this new image of Jesus? Is it based on well-supported facts and arguments? Or does it fade away when exposed to the hot light of
scrutiny?
In this dramatic investigation, award-winning writer and former legal editor
Lee Strobel explores such controversial questions as:

  • Did Christianity suppress “alternative gospels” that portray Jesus more
    accurately than the New Testament?
  • Did the church distort the truth about Jesus by tampering with early
    biblical texts?
  • Have fresh insights and explanations finally disproved the resurrection?
  • Were the essential beliefs about Jesus stolen from earlier mythology?
  • Have new objections disqualified Jesus from being the Messiah?

Evaluate the evidence for yourself as leading experts grapple with the latest objections from today’s foremost critics. Then reach your own verdict in The Case for the Real Jesus.

THIS was an AWESOME book for anyone at any level in their walk in Christianity! Great resource for the evangelist or the apologist. A great resource for those discipling others in their walk with Christ. A strong foundation of philosophically, archaeologically, and historically needed information in order to make that plunging step with your life to completely turn it over to the Lord! Well worth the read and would be a worthwhile tool to use as a study over the belief in Jesus as the Christ!

The Power of Unlimited Faith: Living in the Miraculous Everyday by Kynan Bridges

unlmtdfaith

Do you ever hear people talk about “getting more faith” or “increasing their faith?”  When we buy into this idea, we never have enough. Though we constantly seek after greater faith, it always feels just beyond our grasp…

The Truth is, you already possess all of the faith you will ever need—both to please God and to release His miraculous power in your everyday life. You simply need to know how to activate it!

You’ll learn how to:

  • See the invisible—and discover God’s supernatural solutions
  • Operate key principles of faith—and unleash God’s unlimited power within you
  • Activate the law of confession—and agree with God’s Word
  • Expect the miraculous—and watch impossibilities turn around

I found Mr. Bridges perspective on activating one’s faith into an unlimited potential as being interesting and simplistic. Sometimes that is just what we need…simplicity! I found his book to be very well written and quite an easy read. I read it in about tree days, unfortunately…I was sick, so I had nothing better to do and way too many books to read. It was a blessing to read his book along with his testimonies. I felt it well worth the time to read, we can always learn something new from another in Christ’s love, you just never know!

The 7 Habits That Will Change Your Life Forever Kindle Edition by Adam Houge

7habits

Becoming a highly spiritual Christian needs to be the goal of every believer. Love in itself is an action and should be practiced habitually by everyone. We through love should be fervently seeking the Lord, and cherishing one another. We must be constantly portraying the heart of God toward one another on a habitual basis.

As it is written,
“Do not be deceived: ‘Evil company corrupts good habits.’” 1Co 15:33

In this book we will distill the best habits down to the seven most productive ones. If practiced properly, they will carry over into every other category of life and drive you to become a highly spiritual Christian.

Very interesting book, while there are numerous books out there concerning the habits of man which will change his life for the better, and each one of those books makes a good case for their list of habits to pay close attention to. This book is no exception…it make very good, strong biblical arguments for each of these habits – in order to change your life!

On Christian Doctrine, in Four Books by St. Augustine

doctrine

In On Christian Doctrine, St. Augustine helps readers discover, teach, and defend the truths of Scripture. According to St. Augustine, in order for Christians to fully understand Scripture, it should be interpreted with faith, hope, and love. St. Augustine helps readers recognize and interpret figurative expressions and ambiguous language. St. Augustine suggests that readers consult original translations and commit difficult terms to memory. He also suggests we familiarize ourselves with the meaning of frequently used symbols, such as “shepherd” and “sheep.” For those who teach the Scripture to others, St. Augustine says we must teach in honesty–not for self-seeking purposes. This text offers an impressive wealth of practical wisdom for reading the Bible. It is evident that St. Augustine earnestly wanted his readers to understand God’s Word.

This was an interesting read into the mind of one of the brilliant minds of the Christian beliefs.  Hard to see the thoughts of people from the 4th & 5th centuries, versus present day.  My, how the philosophies and morals of man have changed over time…and not for the better!

The Reason for My Hope: Salvation by Billy Graham

   

 

Age and illness have removed him from the public eye, but only death will stop Graham from promulgating the same good news of salvation in Jesus Christ that he has preached now for 70 years. Only some of his exempla are new, drawn from recent headlines and the web, but, as always, Graham makes the message fresh, makes it new, in a plain-speaking and personal manner that few other evangelists have mastered quite as well. He remains absolutely faithful to the text of the Bible, as sure of sin and damnation as they are biblically portrayed as he is of repentance, salvation, and heaven. Moreover, he is as convinced of prophecy—that Jesus’ coming was foretold and that his Second Coming is certain—as ever. He doesn’t acknowledge nuance (although he doesn’t condemn metaphorical reading of scripture, either), and—what upsets contemporary sensibilities much more—he adheres to traditional understandings, for example of marriage, as firmly as to traditional evangelical interpretation of the Bible. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. –Ray Olson

This was a really fast read! The crux of this book was to get back to basics, get back to Jesus, & get back to relying on the word of God which is the basis of our faith!

The Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons by Napoleon Hill

20140420-090057.jpg

The Law of Success was a precursor to Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich. Hill was well known for researching what made millionaires different from the common man. The sixteen lessons in this book perfectly crystallize everything you will need to know to succeed during these hard economic times. Many of today’s best known self help books take there core concepts form this book. The Secret, the Power of Positive Thinking, the Millionaire next door, and The Law of Attraction all take their basic premises from this landmark work. Now you can get it from the source. Once you’ve read this book you will understand what gives certain people an edge over everyone else. By following the advice laid out clearly herein you’ll be the one with an edge. It’s time to stop wondering what it’s like to be rich and start knowing. This book has changed countless lives and it can change yours! Unlike many of the other editions on the market today, this edition is complete and unabridged! Wilder Publications is a green publisher. All of our books are printed to order. This reduces waste and helps us keep prices low while greatly reducing our impact on the environment.

I have the two volume set, but there is a single volume as well. Each lesson was written as a separate book by Napoleon Hill, back in the day it was originally printed in 1927. Excellent reference despite its dated writing. The ideas presented are still very valid.

Godspeed & Good Read to you all!
