"Having faith in the Lord is not something that involves solely our intelligence, the area of intellectual knowledge; rather, it is a change that involves our life, our whole self: feelings, heart, intelligence, will, corporeity, emotions, and human relationships. With faith everything truly changes." So Pope Benedict XVI introduced his catecheses for the Year of Faith, a series of sixteen talks given at his weekly audience from October 2012 to the end of his papacy in February 2013. These talks explore how and why faith is relevant in the contemporary world. How can we come to certainty about things that cannot be calculated or scientifically confirmed? What does God's revelation mean for our daily lives? How can the hunger of the human heart be fulfilled? Offering the guidance of biblical exegesis, pastoral exhortation, and brotherly encouragement, Pope Benedict seeks to answer these questions and many others.

When Lonnie and Belinda Riley return to live in their hometown of Lynch, Kentucky, on a cold March night in 1999, they arrive with no job, no income, and no clue about what to do next. But they do arrive with one certainty: God has called them to leave a comfortable, "make-it-happen" kind of life to live totally dependent on Him to show them how to serve the people in the heart of Appalachia-and that is all they need. As the Rileys learn to live the faith-life, miracle after miracle occurs as God provides in ways that only He can and as He does things only He can do. As word spreads about what is happening, over the next ten years more than 30,000 short- and long-term volunteers come to minister alongside the Rileys in the more than twenty ministries they begin, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in goods and services are donated through Meridzo Center Ministries, Inc. Story after story emerges of how God provides sometimes after a need is known and sometimes before a need is known. Miracle in the Mountains chronicles more than fifty-seven of the hundreds of stories that have emerged as well as many of the biblical principles that the Rileys have learned about how to live the faith-life. These principles are applicable in the life of any reader who is willing to follow God without reservation. "You will be inspired and encouraged as you read the stories," writes Claude V. King, coauthor with Henry Blackaby of Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God. "Th e practical principles Lonnie and Belinda have learned and shared will help you in your own walk of faith. You'll be hungry for more."

The Transforming Power of Grace

How does an infinite God relate to finite human beings? How does the death of Jesus Christ bring about human salvation? How are Christians able to actively address the world's ills while maintaining their citizenship in the kingdom of God? These are questions the church grapples with today, as it always has. Yet, according to Thomas C. Oden, contemporary theology has neglected the church's traditional answer to these questions: the doctrine of grace. All too often modern theologians either ignore the doctrine of grace or relate it to the achievement of a particular political agenda. Oden asserts that only by reclaiming the centrality of grace--defined as God's self-giving through Jesus Christ in personal encounter with the individual human will--can Christian theology be true to the gospel. In order to reclaim the doctrine of grace, the author reaches back, beyond the fragmentation of theology that took place during and after the Enlightenment. He draws upon the ecumenical consensus held by early Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant theologians, councils, and creeds regarding this cardinal Christian doctrine. By adducing this ancient unity, Oden challenges modern assumptions concerning the sources and methods of the theological enterprise and calls contemporary Christians to discern what their forebears in the faith knew to be essential to the gospel: that to be a Christian is to be formed, nurtured, and upheld solely by divine grace.

It's about heart change, not behavior change. That's the conviction of Tim Chester as he seeks to help everyday Christians "connect the truth about God with our Monday-morning struggles." This interactive book, laid out in workbook fashion, is for newer Christians struggling with sin and for more mature Christians who have plateaued in their faith as they seek to find victory over sin in their lives. With a conviction that sanctification is God's work and the journey to holiness is joyful, Chester guides readers through a "change project"-beginning with the selection of one area of life they would like to modify. Each chapter includes a question (e.g., Why would you like to change? What truths do you need to turn to?) to guide readers as they deal with a specific sin or struggle, truths from God's word, and a reflection guide to help readers through their change project.

The God revealed in the Bible loves us and has a wonderful plan for us. For us to experience God's nearness, we must have a right understanding of who He is. Today's world offers many alternative "gods" to whom we can pray: Allah, Buddha, a Higher Power, and even our "higher self"! There is only one true God and He exists as Three Persons in One, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We accept by faith what the Bible tells us about God and that He sent His Son to die for us on the cross so we may have an intimate and right relationship with God. The Holy Spirit is co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. He possesses all of the attributes of God.

There is one commonality among every saint: they all have deep faith in God that was lived out in their daily lives. Fr. Maurice Emelu explains here how the faith of Abraham, Moses, Mary, and other biblical figures evolved, and how their journey serves as a roadmap for how our faith-life can be built, nourished, and grown. Drawing on his West African roots as well as his many years of pastoral ministry, Fr. Emelu combines the story-telling culture of Africa with a Western worldview to offer a unique perspective on the nature of faith and what it means to grow closer to the Lord. Theological yet practical, these pages show you what the journey of faith looks like, and explains the essential elements to a life of faith which can transform not only lives, but society itself. You’ll also learn: The four main stages of every person’s journey of faithHow you can grow from the elementary forms of divine realization to deeper awareness of GodHow the journey of faith proceeds from the simple to the complex, and from the known to the unknownHow faith is essential for understanding truth and fully realizing the gift of reasonWhy Abraham and the Blessed Mother are the best models for living out God’s willThe various forms of doubt that can hurt – and even help – our relationship with the LordWays in which faith can break the boundaries of fear and prideHow faith is a source of unity not division among peoples Faith is not an individual’s private dominion. It is the core of our identity as religious beings. Read this book, and you will not only deepen your own faith in God, you will develop a greater appreciation of the transforming power of faith.
