Great Hymns of the Christian Faith Sung in Church for Generations. A Mighty Fortress is our God Be Thou My Vision All Creatures of Our God and King O Sacred Head Now Wounded
What do you do when your dreams are shattered, when disillusionment and despair flood in and overwhelm you? We see through the eyes of others who openly share their journey home.
Featured guest is Dr. K. P. Yohannan, Director of Gospel for Asia and author of more than 200 books. In the book of 2 Corinthians, the Apostle Paul tells what it really means to serve the church.
This set includes the entire collection of the Book By Book series: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Selected Psalms, Jonah, John, Philippians, I & II Thessalonians, II Timothy, I Peter, Esther, II Corinthians, James, Acts, Daniel, Joshua, Galatians, Ephesians, Isaiah, Revelation, Amos, Nahum, Job, Proverbs, Mark, I Samuel, Ezra and Haggai, 2 Samuel, Titus and Philemon.
In the book of I Peter, the apostle Peter encourages suffering and persecuted Christians to remain loyal to Christ. He calls us to live holy lives, looking to Christ as our example. Jesus has shown the pattern of suffering first, then glory later. Therefore we can endure trials now because our eyes are fixed on our future hope. Peter explains how believers should live during difficult times and outlines the right attitude to have about persecution.
II Timothy is possibly the very last letter that the great apostle Paul ever wrote. We come to the end of the thrilling life of a man who had served Jesus with all his heart, mind, soul and strength. It is clear that this letter was written when Paul was a prisoner. What would be his final instruction to the Church?
The Book of Daniel shows us how to hold onto the reality of Christ in a world that we don't control, a world that is full of values and assumptions that are hostile to the ways of the Living God.
The book of Ephesians is the most thorough and wide-ranging account of what it means to be the Church, in the New Testament. The Ephesian Christians lived in the shadow of the massive temple to Artemis, as we read in Acts 19. That 'wonder of the ancient world' must have dominated not only the skyline but also the thinking of the city. Ephesus was a city full of spiritual darkness and occult power. Book by Book: Study Guide The joy of meeting Jesus in all the Scriptures by Paul Blackham
Featured guest is Robbie Langford, a recently retired missionary of 30 years in South America, Central Asia, and Sudan. The book of James challenges us with the most basic and essential realities of life, driving us to face up to the truth about following Jesus.
Job is constantly accused by his friends of sin or pride or selfishness. They believe that suffering is always our own fault but that there is a way to avoid suffering if only we are holy enough or repent enough of our sins. The book of Job wants to teach us to think again about suffering, as suffering may contain some of the deepest treasures from the Living God.
Though the Gospel of John has so often been used to introduce non-Christians to Christ because of its easy-to-understand language and style, there is much more to the book.
Featured guest is Joseph Steinberg of Jews for Jesus. Leviticus takes us down into the theological engine of the Scriptures to show us how and why the work of the Messiah is what it is.
With his urgent style of writing and his brilliant presentation of the identity and mission of Jesus, Mark calls us to turn around and allow our world to be turned upside down by the LORD Jesus. DVD includes 197-page study guide.
The letter of Philippians was written by Paul while he was in prison in Rome in about AD 63, but there is no bitterness or disillusionment here. In this letter, Paul opens his heart to us, showing us the secret to real contentment. The letter speaks of fellowship in the sufferings of Jesus, and yet there is no book of the Bible so full of joy.
The book of Psalms is constructed and arranged in a brilliant way, and the sequence of Psalms covered in these programs is one of the most fascinating in the entire book. DVD comes with 53 page study guide.
This program includes three short films which can be used as effective discussion starters or for personal reflection. The Bridge -- A dramatic parable on God's sacrifice of his son. The Pump -- A man journeying through the desert has car trouble and decides to walk until he comes upon a ghost town. The Mouths of Babes -- This program consists of a series of questions to which very young children respond.
