title: Bed of Nails

author: Ruth B

word count: 80000

Content

The woman most likely to experience sexual coercion in marriage are 35-50, white, college-educated, and going to church every week. Research shows that over a third of married women experience it through badgering, bullying, manipulation, threats, and even misuse of scripture. But this subject is not talked about. What happens in a marital bedroom is loaded with emotional baggage, assumptions about marital duty and consent, and the attitudes we bring from our world and our upbringing. It happens in private. And it stays in private. Silent, unchecked, metastasizing. We need to understand this broken language of intimacy, how it developed, how it happens, and what the biblical truth is that we need to return to. We need to understand what the Bible says about the darker side of physical love and how God responds to it. We need to understand the impact to the woman and the ripple effects on marriage, family, and church.  This book will open eyes and equip people to meet this challenge. This book seeks a collaborative approach to understanding appropriate behavior in marriage, how to correct something already broken, and how to prevent its occurrence in the next generation of marriages.

Content

In America many churchgoers are greeted with excitement, loud music, and clapping hands, but unfortunately, when the preaching starts, they will not hear the gospel. Friendly messages bring crowds, but they do not save souls. Unlike generations before, Americans today live in a world with lots of spirituality but little understanding of the truth. Most Bible studies are written with the assumption that people believe in God and trust the Bible, but this Bible study is different: This study starts by assuming the reader needs to be convinced of everything. In Questions Answered: Gospel Clarified, all titles are in the form of a thought-provoking question that most of us have wondered about. Each lesson starts by drawing the reader in through a true and interesting narrative that connects to the subject matter of the lesson. The lessons are sequential, so the first lesson justifies the reliability of the Bible itself by giving the reader interesting, well-researched, and little-known information in an easy-to-read format. By the end of these twelve lessons, the goal is for readers to have a solid Christian faith that they are willing to die for.

title: Draw Near: Experiencing Intimacy with God through Prayer

author: Alice M

Content

I think most Christians struggle with prayer on some level.  I know I do. On the one hand, it seems simple. Prayer is just talking to God. On the other hand, it seems deeply mysterious and puzzling because, well, prayer is actually talking to God! If it makes us feel any better, Jesus’ disciples struggled with prayer as well. It’s the only thing they ever asked him to teach them—not how to heal or how to preach or how to change water into wine. No, they wanted to know how to pray. Even the Apostle Paul found prayer difficult at times: “We don’t know what to pray for as we ought ...” (Romans 8:26). We struggle with prayer, yet we keep praying because God has put within each of us a deep desire to connect with him just as he desires to connect with us. “Draw near to me,” he says, “and I will draw near to you” (James 4:8). This Bible study explores theological truths about prayer while offering practical ways and opportunities to experience relational intimacy with God as we pray.

title: Mindslaughter. Rogue Worldviews, Abortion, and Discipleship

author: John B

category: nonfiction • subcategory: academic • date submitted: 5.31.2021 • author id: BrJoMi11921

word count: 125000

Content

Given the high expectations with which the 20th century began, the extraordinary toll of violence due to war, terrorism, and genocide, came as a horrifying surprise. Much more so when abortion is considered. Abortion has been responsible for more human deaths than all other forms of modern violence put together. Sadly, a substantial number of these deaths have occurred in nations with sizable Christian populations. The faith of many Christians---Catholic, Protestant and Evangelical---has been distorted by ideas and worldviews that have made a mockery of the discipleship called for by Jesus. A renewed emphasis, and a deeper wisdom, regarding discipleship, the biblical story and worldview, is necessary on the part of all who teach the faith. The Christian home should be part of that renewal. Who better to teach the biblical worldview, and model the Christian lifestyle with its God-given emphasis on the value and dignity of all human beings, than Christian parents?

It was the year 2498, and Tarro had worked hard to become a Peace Officer, a member of the police force that maintained the peace and security of the city of Avalon, home to the world’s elite class of citizens.  Despite all his accomplishments, he now watched helplessly as his beloved Nya stood with her fellow prisoners in a trial that was no more than a charade to entertain Avalon’s citizens. He had loved her since their days at the Academy, and back then he never would have imagined this.  He had finally graduated and entered Avalon as a distinguished citizen and officer.  But then he began to see the tyranny of the Kreplin, Avalon’s government, which had ripped her from him. His years in Avalon — the police work, the village raids, the undercover operations — seemed to have accomplished nothing except to bring Nya back to him with a devastating end.  Heartbreak and unhappiness had taken their toll on Tarro.  Now with Nya’s demise looming, the anger and despair threatened to overcome him.  There seemed to be no hope . . . or was there?

title: Validity in the Interpretation and Validation of a Literary Allusion in the Hebrew Bible

author: David K

category: nonfiction • subcategory: academic • date submitted: 5.8.2021 • author id: KlDaVa9221

word count: 77000

Content

This study seeks to do four primary things. First, it makes the connection between authorial intention and literary devices such as literary allusion explicit. Authors allude, not readers. In order to trace the logical progression whereby the author has been rejected as the controller of meaning, this study briefly summarizes the history of the hermeneutical discussions that have led to the current reader-response approaches to texts. Second, it seeks to clearly define the term "literary allusion" as well as related terms so that specific and meaningful discussion can take place in the broader field of intcrtextuality. Third, it sets forth certain criteria whereby the claim that a literary allusion is present in a text can be defended. Fourth, it demonstrates that by accurately defining the term "literary allusion" and identifying literary allusions via their working parts the interpretation of texts is significantly enhanced.

About the Author

title: In the Council of the Lord: Men and Women Who Made a Difference in Israel

author: Claude M

category: nonfiction • subcategory: academic • date submitted: 4.30.2021 • author id: MaClIn9621

word count: 70000

Content

The history of Israel is filled with men and women who made an impact in the society in which they lived. These people were people of faith, people who had a personal relationship with their God and served as God’s instruments to speak to his people. Men and women can make a difference in the lives of others because they have within themselves the strength of character and the will to face difficult situations with courage, faith, and determination. We live in a world in which people think that they cannot change their situation. These people give up whenever they are confronted by opposition or with a situation they believe is hopeless and will never change. The purpose of my book is to help readers learn more about men and women who were used by God to make a difference in the lives of others. The book will also motivate the readers to be inspired by the struggles and accomplishments of these men and women in Israel.

title: Bankruptcy of the Spirit

author: Thelma J

category: nonfiction • subcategory: currentissues • date submitted: 4.24.2021 • author id: JaThBa8121

word count: 42000

Content

Bankruptcy of the Spirit is a coming-of-age story against a backdrop of inherited trauma.  The inherited trauma is a result of years of institutional racism enforced by Black Codes and Jim Crow Laws, first learned by the author’s surviving ancestors and then passed on from one generation to the next.  These Codes and Laws are not “dead.”  And, in some states, these laws are still on the books.  They manifest themselves in a variety of 21st century ways: unadjudicated police shootings of unarmed American males of African descent, derogatory characterizations of Americans of African descent and their culture, the cradle to prison trajectory for American males of African descent, etc.  The story pivots on how one African American female overcame this psychological murder through cultural and spiritual maturity. The transformative qualities of this manuscript suggest that racism is not overcome solely by law and regulation (behavioral change) but also must include a change in the spiritual arc of Americans---Americans of all descents.  Disparity and inhumane treatment of Americans of African descent and other marginalized people will continue without this added component.

About the Author

Thelma is the author of Bankruptcy of the Spirit, a peek into the ordinary life of a female American of African descent, examining the impact of Inherited trauma and her path to diminish its effects.  Through observation techniques learned in her training in Research/Evaluation, Thelma takes her own experiences and those seen at Philadelphia-based historically Black institutions such as Stephen Smith Home for the Aged and Women’s Christian Alliance to fashion this story.

One airplane was scheduled to go to California; the other was scheduled to go down. When the conniving of an alleged smuggler goes awry, five friends plunge into the trap. But surviving an airplane crash is the easy part. "Plane crashed, pilot dead. One broken leg and a bloody head. Summer moved out, winter moved in: Hope of rescue seems fairly thin." Jack, Maria, Eddy, Camille and Carl are pitted against the elements, faced with medical trauma, and confronted by their own specters of the past and an embezzler desperate enough to kill. Will the bond of loyalty carry them beyond mere survival to see justice served on a fleeing Nazi war criminal?

title: Perseverance and Apostasy in the New Testament

author: Dongsu K

category: nonfiction • subcategory: academic • date submitted: 4.16.2021 • author id: KiDoPe7421

word count: 440624

Content

In recent years, the subject of perseverance and apostasy has drawn a renewed attention as believers have wrestled with issues of justification and assurance of salvation. To make an in-depth study of perseverance and apostasy in the New Testament, I apply the grammatical-historical method in the exegesis of relevant passages against the socio-historical circumstance of each community of the New Testament, dealing with questions such as whether genuine believers can apostatize and lose their salvation, whether apostates can be restored with repentance, how God’s sovereignty and human responsibility work together to result in either perseverance or apostasy, and whether the New Testament writers maintain unity or disunity on the subject. From my inductive study based on biblical-theological and exegetical methods of interpretation, I find that the New Testament writers maintain a uniform concept of apostasy since they address a common belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God incarnated in the flesh. Apostasy is different from backsliding and defection in that it is a calculated rejection of the gospel of Jesus Christ; so apostates, as the book of Hebrews affirms, cannot be restored. Also, genuine believers are preserved by God through His Spirit unto salvation, so biblical warnings and exhortations are designed to realize the elect’s perseverance rather than suppose a possibility of their loss of salvation through apostasy. My book sets out to affirm the unity in the New Testament over perseverance and apostasy and invalidate viewpoints that challenge the authority and authenticity of the Scripture.

title: To Follow the Lamb: A Peaceable Reading of the Book of Revelation

author: Ted G

category: nonfiction • subcategory: biblecommentary • date submitted: 4.7.2021 • author id: GrTeTo7021

word count: 100000

Content

The book of Revelation, for many, seems hopelessly hard to interpret. It gives the impression of being full of frightening and confusing visions. However, To Follow the Lamb: A Peaceable Reading of the Book of Revelation shows that Revelation actually is fascinating, inspiring, and empowering. The key to reading Revelation is simple. Let’s take seriously the opening words of the book that tell us it is a “revelation of Jesus Christ.” Let’s expect Revelation to help us understand Jesus and his will for us. We may expect that Revelation shares the same basic sensibility that we find in the gospels and the rest of the New Testament. Revelation is an exhortation to discipleship—follow the Lamb wherever he goes! It offers a sharp critique of the world’s empires and of how people of faith to find ways to be comfortable within the empires. Revelation portrays God as merciful and peaceable—but engaged in a battle against the spiritual powers of evil, a fought with the weapons of love, not worldly violent weapons. To Follow the Lamb opens up Revelation’s blueprint for faithful living—resistance to the empires and embrace of the compassionate and healing love of the Lamb.

What Should I Dream? is an imaginative story for young children that generates ideas for them to dream about: ideas ranging from the absurd and fantastic to the realistic, inspiring, and visionary.

This book discusses the current context of missions, looking at cultural shifts in America and the world, as well as resulting changes in the church and emerging trends in missions that are impacting the next generation. Traits and characteristics of Gen Z (b. 1996-2010) are presented, followed by strategies for effectively engaging Gen Z in missions. The final section of the book considers implications for the future of missions as we mobilize the next generation to serve.

Working Title: Life with a Limp: Walking and Growing Through Suffering Everybody walks with a limp. From cradle to casket, life is filled with physical, psychological, and emotional pain. Some may hide their limp better than others. Nevertheless, the limp is there. Suffering is no respecter of persons. While suffering afflicts our bodies and emotions, the problem of suffering afflicts the mind.  When confronted by tragedy, one might ask: How did this happen? or How can I survive this pain? Eventually the more philosophical questions press in upon our minds: Why did God let this happen? or How can I trust a God who would let my child die?  While all walk through suffering, only some grow through suffering. This is my story of limping through doubt, loss, and grief following the death of my firstborn son. More importantly, it’s the story of how our limp in life can help us grow more in love with our suffering Savior.

(Working Title: The Dream: God’s Messages in the Night Through the Ages) A woman in Texas is told in a dream to wake up and pray for her son. At that same moment, one thousand miles away, a gun pointed at her son’s head misfires and the man holding the gun, a robber, flees from the car. Another woman dreams that a fire engulfs her nephew’s home. Concerned, she wakes and prays for them. Several days later, her nephew’s home does burst into flames. He and his wife escape with their lives but lose everything in the fire. The dreams of these women and others mirror numerous dream experiences described in Scripture. In fact, dreams have been a rich part of human history from our very first written records in ancient Sumeria, to Abraham – the Bible’s first dreamer – to Paul the Apostle, St. Patrick, and numerous saints through the ages, including St. Francis of Assisi. Why do we dream? What do our dreams mean? Do they represent the stirrings of our psyche, a divine message, or something else? Does God speak to us in dreams? Are not dreams just a figment of our imaginations and last night’s pizza? These and other questions are addressed through a survey of the history of humanity and dreams, including the latest scientific research and interviews with modern-day dreamers.
