He establishes an IRA cell, fronted as the Christian Mens Charitable Society (C.M.C.S.), working to relieve the ravages of WWII. His cousin, fellow migr Michael Railley, is second-in-command; his two sons are his lieutenants. An assortment of enthusiastic soldiers makes up the Company. As Republicanism wanes in Ireland, Tomass plans become thwarted. Michael gets alarmed as Tomass frustration changes to fanaticism, when the IRAs Army Council calls a halt to his activities.Tomas ignores them and develops his own agenda.

His mother discovers Dermots religious leanings, and guideshim to the priesthood. Margarets pride in Dermot contrasts sharply with Tomass bitter contempt for things religious. Their difference becomestotally irreconcilable once Dermot is ordained. Appointed curate in a parish near Eastinglea, Dermot determines to intervene when Michael Railley makes him aware of Tomass treasonous activities, but he, alerted to his sons intentions, neutralizes all interference - in the confessional. Bridgetts life too is disrupted by her fathers destructive agenda, when her beloved James joins the C.M.C.S. Losing the battle for James loyalties, she finds herself alone - and pregnant! Engulfing the lives of those who love him most, Tomass futile crusade rages on to its tragic conclusion.

In this groundbreaking work of first-order scholarship, Eric Johnson makes a vitally important contribution to the field of Christian counseling. He first presents a detailed overview and appreciative but critical evaluation of the reigning paradigms in the field of Christian counseling, particularly biblical counseling and integration. Building on their respective strengths, he seeks to move beyond the current impasse in the field and develop a more unified and robustly Christian understanding. Drawing upon the Bible and various Christian intellectual and soul care traditions, and through a Christian reinterpretation of relevant modern psychological theory and research, Johnson proceeds to offer a new framework for the care of souls that is comprehensive in scope, yet flows from a Christian understanding of human beings--what amounts to a distinctly Christian version of psychology. This book is a must-read for any serious Christian teacher, student, or practitioner in the fields of psychology or counseling.

The Gospel comes to us in an inexhaustible variety of ways: in reading Scripture and praying together, in thinking hard and arguing in faithful community, in the Holy Spirit and in flesh and bone. These sermons engage heart and mind, all of the senses (including our senses of humor and tragedy), and the real lives of real congregations, to proclaim a thoughtful, embodied vision of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I Saw the Glory is a true story of Dr. Durussia Jenkins' encounter with the hand of God. Her experiences with the supernatural resulted with writing poetry, books, and painting over two hundred images in four months' time. However, it was not just the uniqueness of the images and stories she created that intrigued and drew people to them, but the experience of how they had been done. One night, as Dee was painting on the canvas, she suddenly fell into a trance like state. To anyone on the outside, it appeared that she had fallen into a deep sleep, but in all actuality, she was seeing into the heavenly realms of time, images, and pictures that would parallel the coming of events to unfold on the earth. For weeks, night after night, Dee encountered the presence of God. Each time, He revealed new mysteries and unexplainable wonders, pointing to great moments in time and unknown moments to come. Dee knew that it was not going to be easy to convince people to believe in the images and words that God had spoken, but she knew that she had been mandated by God to present the future of His coming glory to the world.

This is the first critical study of the writings of the English Particular Baptist Benjamin Beddome (1718–1795), whose evangelical ministry stretched over the last half of the eighteenth century. Best known in the years following his death as a capable hymn writer, he was also a significant doctrinal preacher. John Newton, who had heard such preachers as John Wesley and George Whitefield, considered Beddome one of the finest preachers of his day. The articles in this critical study examine his sermons to delineate Beddome’s view of God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit, as well as his position on the free offer of the gospel, a central issue among the Particular Baptists of his day. His important contribution to Christian hymnody is also detailed. A must-read for those interested in eighteenth-century evangelical thought.

From Gods mouth to the hearts of his people - this is the function of the Bible and is the reason it is called the Word of God. The Bible applied to the heart by the Holy Spirit is the chief means by which men are built up and established in the faith, after their conversion. It is able to cleanse them, sanctify them, to instruct them in righteousness, and to furnish them thoroughly for all good works (2 Tim. 3:1617) (J. C. Ryle. After many years of anger against God, the author was wonderfully restored by the Lord to himself and laid the burden of this ministry on his heart. Every week for the past fourteen years, TFTWs (Thoughts from the Word) have been sent via the Internet to Gods people throughout the world. Many similar thoughts may be found at www.onhisshoulders.com. The thoughts contained in this volume are published with the sincere prayer that God will use them to refresh and encourage the souls of his people.

We are all influenced by our environment and by everything in it. It is easy for some plants to prosper and bear much fruit under certain environmental conditions, but other plants need different climatic conditions. This truth is also valid in relation to human beings. The environment you live in has a bearing on your altitude and your performance. Achievement or success in any area is a function of many factors, including your environment and prevailing circumstances. Therefore, prevailing conditions can either inhibit or enhance your performance and, subsequently, your success. However, factors such as knowledge, wisdom, skill, and attitude can override the outcome of a negative environment or circumstances. For example, gravity is a fact of life, but birds overcome gravity all the time by flapping their wings. Therefore they are able to fly for sustained periods without falling to the ground. In the same way, the application of the right combination of knowledge, skill, and determination can transform any circumstance. This book deals with six timeless mathematical principles, with strong biblical foundations to help anyone or any group transform its present state into a more desirable one.
