"One solution to the greatest challenges of modern day Christianity today! Anti-Semitism is ingrained in our Christian doctrines and viewpoints, which makes all who claim to be Christian prone to be natural anti-Semitists in their doctrine. This book provides an analysis of anti-Semitism in Christian doctrines from a theological perspective, and will show you how we can rid ourselves of it, and destroy the leaven of anti-Semitism in our Christian doctrine once and for all! The author provides a new way of seeing the Letters to the Seven Churches of Revelation chapter 2-3, and a look at major religious practices in today's Pop-Christianity, from Baptism to the issue of Women's Silence in the Church; a renewed way of viewing the Scriptures without much change. An appreciation of the Jewishness of the Apostles and the Lost Frontier to help all come to unity of the knowledge of the Son of God."

In Letters to a Troubled Church, Bible teacher Ray Stedman uses Paul’s epistles to guide us through difficult matters.

Your faith is challenged daily. We live in a society that has few absolutes, where “truth” is defined by personal philosophies. It’s really not so different from the culture of Corinth during the apostle Paul’s ministry. Believers were struggling with the “gray areas” of life, so Paul wrote letters—1 and 2 Corinthians—to remind them of what God intended as black-and-white. In Letters to a Troubled Church, Bible teacher Ray Stedman uses Paul’s epistles to guide us through difficult matters.
Again he writes, "See with what large letters I am writing to you with my own hand" (Gal. 6:11). Gaius (v. 23), Paul's host and host to the whole church at Corinth, sends his greeting. This is not the Gaius who traveled with Paul (Acts ...
to the seven churches . ... Who are we to write letters to the church, whether present or future? There were some crucial differences too between Jesus' letters and ours—at least the ones I was afraid would be written and presented .

Exiled on the island of Patmos, the apostle John found himself one day in the presence of the Son of God. As he fell down to worship, the apostle was commanded to write what he saw and heard, and to record and send messages to seven churches, encouraging them and challenging them in the way of the Lord. That was then; this is now. What might the Spirit say to our churches today? What might the Spirit be saying to you? Chris Lewis and the Epiphaneia Network put that question to their friends. This book includes some of the responses they got. With contributions from such significant voices as Andy Crouch Ron Sider Tim Challies Peter Rollins Sarah Lance Makoto Fujimura and others, Letters to a Future Church paints a portrait of the world as we have it and the mission we have in it. You may find your calling in this book; you may even find your own voice.
These books are a major eye opener, revealing just how relevant Jesus' letters are for us today.
Author: Austin John de Bourg
Many feel certain that they are right with God and on their way to heaven, when in fact, they are not! This was the sobering predicament of 5 of the 7 Churches of Jesus Christ as revealed in His letters to them in the Book of Revelation. "God's perspective is often quite different to man's" explained Dr. de Bourg as he presents, with clarity and simplicity, the depth of wisdom, insight and revelation which is contained in Jesus' seven letters to His Church. These books are a major eye opener, revealing just how relevant Jesus' letters are for us today. They could well be the very thing that is needed to place us in the perfect will of God, as they provide this present-day Church with the spiritual "rudder," to steer it on the right course. If you truly desire to be right with God and to secure your eternity with Him in heaven, this seven-part series is definitely for you!
