The Lord’s Prayer. The model prayer. The Pater Noster. Most of us are familiar with at least one of these ways of referring to the prayer Jesus gave His disciples (Matthew 6:9-13; Luke 11:2-4). But what else do we know about it? If you could crack the prayer open like a pecan or a walnut—what would you find inside? It’s
the purpose of this little book to explore that question.
A disclaimer—the purpose of Praying in the Reign is not to prod you into praying more often or with greater intensity (although that could be a good thing). Of course, it does have something to say about prayer, but that’s not its main thrust either. What it does seek to do is to reach out and grab you in regard to the glory of our Father and the greatness of His kingdom. It seeks to help you understand more of what it means to allow Him to rule in your lives. Available at 21st Century Christian.
If you have started Revelation a time or two but were unable to gain the traction needed to see it through to the end, The Thrill of Hope can help. An entry level look at the book of Revelation that puts the book in terms you can understand. There are devotional pieces that explain and develop its major themes, as well as FAQ sections that deal with specific issues from each portion of the book. You’ll also find an emphasis on what Revelation says to disciples today.
Available through Amazon.
An invasion of locusts, three days in a huge fish, a good marriage gone bad–these are just a few of the things you’ll find in the eighth century prophets (Hosea, Joel, Amos, Jonah and Micah). They deal with religious formalism, oppression of the poor, and what God really wants from His people. Most of all, they reveal a God who is not willing to give up on His purposes for them or the rest of the world.
Know Intimately Loved Ultimately is the first volume of a two volume work on what Israel and the early church referred to as the Twelve Prophets. We know them as the Minor Prophets and they have some major truths for our lives today. This book can help you explore their richness and depth. Available through 21st Century Christian and Amazon.
From Habakkuk’s writing on the wall, to Zechariah’s mysterious visions, to Malachi’s prophecies about John and Jesus—the seven prophets of the Babylonian period (and beyond) are utterly engaging. They leave us with an unforgettable portrait of a passionate Father. Even when Israel and Judah detach themselves from Yahweh, He continues to pursue them. He loves them enough to do whatever needs to be done to bring them back to Him.
This book concludes the study of The Twelve that began in volume 1 with a look at the books of Nahum, Zephaniah, Habakkuk, Obadiah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi.
