Jesus? Who was He? And why do people still talk about Him after 2000 years? For many of us, we know of Jesus because of the movies that come out around Christmas and Easter time. We know about His birth - ya know, something about being born in a manger wearing 'waddled-up' clothes. Then, there's a little something about some wise men giving Him some cool gifts that included gold and some other stuff that we really don't know what it was. Maybe it was some off-brand cologne? And then after Jesus grows up to be a man, we know that a bunch of folks didn't like Him and decide to have Him hung on a cross. And then He dies and heads up to Heaven. The end, right? Wrong. Everything we need to know about Jesus is found in the Gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These books of the Bible tell us about His birth and why it was so awesome. It tells us of why He came to Earth and what His mission statement was for all of humanity. It also tells us why we should follow Him and the benefits for doing it. It's a serious deal! In this book, we explain the Gospels from all four sides - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Just like all of our other stuff in A Redneck's Guide series, we keep it simple. We hope you are blessed by reading it!
Jesus really existed? This simple question if may ask any person who has an ounce of common sense and that belong to any religion except mine. In fact, if Jesus was a historical figure or a myth if you can ask a jew, a Mohammedan, a Buddhist one, and even a Shinto animist Togo or a follower of the goddess Kahli but to me, that I am a Christian, is not allowed. In fact, everything that we Christians know about Jesus we have been taught by our Church. In Italy, with rare exceptions, the matter has been dealt with only by scholars of proven faith according to the canons of the Pontifical Commission for Biblical Studies, and the Propaganda Fides that are part of the ecclesiastical hierarchy and the Congregation of the Holy Office. But I believe the time is ripe for groped a synthesis of all this controversial subject with the aid of new technologies and the latest findings. In order not to confuse us, we will use the razor of William of Ockham, the pragmatic philosopher who used it to figure out what topics would and could discuss: anything that you could cut with a razor was worthy of analysis, all the rest was left to Metaphysics."
Waiting for Jesus in a Can't Wait World is an Amazing New Concept for our "electronically connected" teens, family and friends. There are two exciting features in this Advent book. Each day, beginning November 30, 2014, following the devotion, there is a Share and a Thought Prompt. These two "brain-rattlers" provide food to feast on each day, leading up to Christmas, rather than a steady diet of "gimme." 1: Shares: (text, tweet, post to FB, blogs, Pinterest, or anywhere.) The plan: to bring Jesus Christ into the daily thoughts of our family and friends. Rather than thinking about the presents they will get or give on Christmas Day, they will focus on the presence of God, through the Share that you will text, email, or post to them. 2: Thinking About Jesus Thought Prompts: Also: Fun, Thought Prompts can be posted, emailed and/or texted, so our family and friends can brainstorm about ideas that will fill them with Jesus as they wait for Christmas. When they get home, you can discuss the Prompt around the supper table or in a moment together. The Devotion is based on scripture and completed with a prayer, using Prayer Therapy, as taught in the book, the Prayer Therapy of Jesus. Prayer Therapy is praying specifically, as Jesus taught us, so God can answer specifically.
