A Passion for Christ

In a culture increasingly secular in its pursuits and indifferent to the voice of the church, how may we ignite the fire for ministry that will bring the gospel to the world? How can weary pastors be sustained amidst a climate of doubt and resistance? For more than half a century, three remarkable brothers have offered a vision that has inspired thousands in churches and seminaries. Today, their message remains fresh and relevant as we enter a new millennium. And for one reason: The Brothers Torrance share a passion for Christ--the Christ of the Scriptures, the Christ of the historic Nicene faith. These essays distill the essence of their thought, and shine with the clarity of their shared vision. A Passion for Christ is a light of encouragement for ministers and lay people elsewhere.

A Passion for Christ

One of the basic, ongoing challenges a Christian faces is to keep his and her love for Christ alive and passionate. Jesus rebuked the Ephesian Church for abandoning their first love. More than 50 years ago, A. W. Tozer wrote, "Perhaps the most serious charge that can be brought against modern Christians is that we are not sufficiently in love with Christ." Following his resurrection, Jesus had one fundamental question for Simon Peter: "Do you love me?" Our living Lord still asks the same poignant question of his followers today. To know Christ is to love Christ. To love Christ is to serve Christ. Peter knew Christ, but there was so much more to know about Christ. Peter loved Christ, but his love at the time was so fragile, so immature. Peter had served Christ, but Christ was calling him to a greater and wider service-in the power of the Holy Spirit. This book challenges the Christian to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ-intimately, increasingly, and passionately. May our prayer be that of Richard of Chichester: O most merciful Redeemer, Friend, and Brother, may we know thee more clearly, love thee more dearly, follow thee more nearly; for thine own sake.

The Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Archbishop Alban Goodier, S.J. fills in the many blanks in the historical narratives about the Passion of Jesus Christ with a riveting account based on history, culture and his own deep spiritual insights. He brings to life and unifies the many observations, emotions and subtle and not-so-subtle actions that revolve around the person of God the Son as he faces his most tragic and triumphant moment.The author¿s unique approach intersperses Scripture accounts with the commentary of an incisive narrator who sifts and judges from the span of hundreds of years. He draws from the obvious as well as the obscure, and finds supernatural meaning in the most mundane actions that surround the suffering Christ. In the hands of this writer, the Lord¿s few words, accompanied by the author¿s commentary, challenge contemporary believers as much as they did those who first followed in the footsteps of Christ and his apostles.The author was born in 1869 in Lancashire, northern England and educated at the prominent Catholic college, Stonyhurst, which has been the source of many English Catholic politicians, intellectuals and business people. After a degree from the University of London, he was ordained a Jesuit in 1903. He served as archbishop of Bombay from 1919 to 1926 and returned to England to write and serve as a chaplain until his death in 1939.

The Passion of the Infant Christ

Although forgotten until quite recently, Caryll Houselander, who died in 1954, was a sensitive and profound English Roman Catholic writer on Christian spirituality. In this critical edition of her 1949 book The Passion of the Infant Christ, Houselander argues that the physical world is an "inscaped" revelation of the mind of the Creator. Every concrete object and every temporal event mirrors the eternal, just as the circumstances surrounding the birth of Jesus mirror the circumstances surrounding his death and resurrection. Editor Kerry Walters discusses both Houselander's life and the primary themes of The Passion of the Infant Christ in his introduction to this critical edition of one of Houselander's most insightful books.

A Passion for Christ

A Passion for Christ

This Lent, let's renew our passion for Christ. Paul's letters to the Corinthians revealed how passionate he was for Christ, for knowing Christ, for the Church of Christ and for everyone to follow and serve Christ. His own personal comfort was of secondary importance. He was more than willing to follow his Lord even if this meant much personal suffering.Michael Baughen reminds us that 'we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ' (2 Cor. 1:5). Can we really identify with His sufferings? Most of us live lives of plenty, comfort and choice, so what does this really mean?Over six studies, we will consider how, as followers of Christ, we can: * share in the sufferings of Christ* be a Church marked by love and holiness* share the hope of the gospel* shine the light of Christ's glory* use suffering as a personal testimony* give our lives as a living sacrifice to Christ
