Peace Child tells their unforgettable story of living among these headhunters and cannibals, who valued treachery through fattening victims with friendship before the slaughter. God gave Don and Carol the key to the Sawi hearts via a redemptive analogy from their own mythology. This analogy became a stepping-stone by which the gospel came into the Sawi culture and started both a spiritual and a social revolution from within.
With an epilogue updating how the gospel has impacted the Sawi people, this missionary classic will inspire a new generation of readers who need to hear this remarkable story and the lessons it teaches us about communicating Christ in a meaningful way to those around us. Sit, Walk, Stand Watchman Nee Watchman Nee takes an inspiring look at Ephesians, the book where he found the highest spiritual truths concerning the Christian life.

With fresh, contemporary wording and precise NIV text, the timeless message of the original flows unhindered through these pages, lending guidance and hope to a new generation of believers. We never know where God has hidden His streams.
We see a large stone and have no idea that it covers the source of a spring. We see a rocky areas and never imagine that it is hiding a fountain. God leads me into hard and difficult places, and it is there I realize I am where eternal streams abide.

His fresh spiritual insights on the cross and resurrection of Christ have proven a blessing to many.The Vortex—Personal Relationship with Jesus Christ
I shall pray, tonight and every night, that God will forgive them. And if Christians are its sole dispensers, then how are we doing at lavishing grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy?
Can it triumph over the brutality of the Ku Klux Klan? Should any grace at all be shown to the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, who killed and cannibalized seventeen young men? Grace does not excuse sin, says Yancey, but it treasures the sinner.
True grace is shocking, scandalous. It shakes our conventions with its insistence on getting close to sinners and touching them with mercy and hope.
It forgives the unfaithful spouse, the racist, the child abuser. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks, How can Christians contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear? Your God is Too Small is a groundbreaking work of faith, which challenges the constraints of traditional religion.
In his discussion of God, author J. Phillips encourages Christians to redefine their understanding of a creator without labels or earthly constraints and instead search for a meaningful concept of God. Phillips explains that the trouble facing many of us today is that we have not found a God big enough for our modern needs.
In a world where our experience of life has grown in myriad directions and our mental horizons have been expanded to the point of bewilderment by world events and scientific discoveries, our ideas of God have remained largely static.
This inspirational work tackles tough topics and inspires readers to reevaluate and connect more deeply with a God that is relevant to current experience and big enough to command respect and admiration.
The Cost of Discipleship Dietrich Bonhoeffer One of the most important theologians of the twentieth century illuminates the relationship between ourselves and the teachings of Jesus What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, mean today to the businessman, the soldier, the laborer, or the aristocrat?
What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us today?
Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the girl which must be asked for, the door at which a man must know…. It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life. In fact, how should we effectively pray to begin with? Best-selling author Beth Moore addresses these practical and pervasive matters in Whispers of Hope by walking readers through an easy to remember and apply method of prayer, coupled with seventy daily devotionals and followed by prompts to put this prayer method into practice.
Indeed, Whispers of Hope teaches the manifestation process of powerful Word-saturated prayer in response to a daily Bible reading.
Christianity Is Not About a Personal Relationship with Jesus — CHAD BIRD
The Bible you read—the book itself—is a communal product. Translated, printed, bound, and sold not by us personally but by others. We read, often unconsciously, with the voices of preachers, teachers, and parents from over the years guiding our knowledge, assumptions, and beliefs. And, ideally, we read the Scriptures with others. In groups, in classes, with an eye to the wisdom of the past and the voices of brothers and sisters studying it with us. Above all, however, Jesus calls us into a living, active, worshiping community that regularly gathers around his gifts.
We are washed into his body on the stream of baptism. We eat the communal meal of his body and blood. We sing together, pray together, confess together, grieve and heal and eventually die together.
He gives us pastors. He gives us brothers and sisters in the faith. He gives us children to teach, elders to emulate, and even less-than-likable people to love as those for whom Christ died.
Christianity is not a solo endeavor. Not a private relationship between Jesus and me. In order to keep land costs low, Jack Jones, an attorney from Rouse's firm of Piper Marburyset up a grid system to secretly buy land through dummy corporations like the "Alaska Iron Mines Company".
Rouse was turned down in financing from David Rockefellerwho had recently cancelled a planned Rouse "Village" concept called Pocantico Hills. The town center land of Oakland Manor was purchased from Isadore Guldesky who was turned down from building high-rises on the site by Rob Moxley's brother, County Commissioner and land developer Norman E. Hubert Black, Charles E.
Millerand David W. Force campaigned on a slow-growth ballot, but later approved the Columbia project. These had included theories that the site was to become a medical research laboratory or a giant compost heap. Despite the moniker of being a "planned city", the planning for the city occupied Rouse officials for most of after the announcement while marketing director Scott Ditch was brought from Baltimore's Cross Keys development to promote the project to community groups.
The case was dropped when developer Homer Gudelsky purchased the estate. Miller stated that if he could do it over again, he wouldn't have voted to approve Columbia. He felt exploited and felt the subsidized housing would become a problem for the rest of the county. In earlya Columbia Flier editorial charged that Miller was a fear-mongering reactionary who had a personal vendetta against Columbia, Rouse and Columbia residents.
The new city would be complete with jobs, schools, shopping, and medical services, and a range of housing choices. Property taxes from commercial development would cover the additional services with which housing would burden the county. The urban planning process for Columbia included not only planners, but also a convened panel of nationally recognized experts in the social sciencesknown as the Work Group. The fourteen member group of white men and one woman, Antonia Handler Chayesmet for two days, twice a month, for half a year starting in Columbia's open classroomsinterfaith centersand the then-novel idea of a health maintenance organization HMO with a group practice of medical doctors the Columbia Medical Plan sprung from these meetings.
The community's physical plan, with neighborhood and village centers, was also decided. Columbia's "New Town District" zoning ordinance gave developers great flexibility about what to put where, without requiring county approval for each specific project. Inamendments to New Town zoning proposing to place a maximum height for buildings and maintain the original density limit of 2. An effort to create a special taxing district in and an effort to incorporate with a mayor in failed.
General Growth Properties submitted a plan for increasing density throughout Columbia in which was unanimously voted down.
Howard Hughes submitted a new plan to increase density in under the Ulman administration that passed unanimously. The first boards were filled entirely with Rouse Company appointees. For Slayton's contributions to the early planning of Columbia, the community center in the Wilde Lake village, Slayton House, was named for him. Wilde Lake was the first village area to be developed in Columbia; accordingly, the town's first high school was Wilde Lake High Schoolwhich opened in as a "model school for the nation".
Constructed in the open classroom style, it was razed in but reconstructed on the same site in
