Dieser Longseller ist seit der deutschen Herausgabe vor 40 Jahren zu einem Klassiker zum Thema "Argumente für den Glauben" geworden. Höchst logisch und mit kraftvoller Bildhaftigkeit begegnet der "Narnia"-Erfinder Lewis dem Vorurteil, man müsse den Verstand über Bord werfen, um heute noch Christ zu sein.

Neurowissenschaftler Chuck Brenton möchte Menschen helfen. Er arbeitet an einem Verfahren, das es erlaubt, über Gehirnströme unmittelbar mit Computern zu interagieren, und so etwaige Einschränkungen des menschlichen Körpers durch Krankheit oder Verletzung zu überwinden. Als sich unerwartete Erfolge einstellen, werden mächtige Gruppierungen mit unbegrenzten Ressourcen auf das Forschungsvorhaben aufmerksam. Doch einige wollen die neuen Möglichkeiten für ihre Zwecke missbrauchen und so sehen sich Chuck und seine Mitstreiter schließlich einer nie geahnten Bedrohung gegenüber. Eine Bedrohung, die das Ende der Welt bedeuten könnte, wie wir sie kennen ... "Die Gotteswelle hat ein ganz neues Spielfeld für alle von uns erschaffen. Und für manche könnte es mehr als ein Spiel sein." The Wall Street Journal "Die Gotteswelle ist ein erwachsener Sci-Fi-Thriller in bester Michael- Crichton-Tradition." Barnes & Nobles Sci-Fi & Fantasy-Blog "Patrick Hemstreets Debüt ist ein Thrillerfeuerwerk, das man in einem Rutsch lesen will, und das einen nachhaltigen Eindruck hinterlässt." James Rollins, New York Times-Bestsellerautor "Die Gotteswelle ist eine atemberaubende "Was wäre wenn”-Story mit cooler Technik und Charakteren, die man einfach mögen muss. Ein unterhaltsamer und verstörend glaubhafter Vorstoß in die Parawissenschaften. Legt euch nicht mit den Zetas an!" Sylvain Neuvel, Autor von "Giants - Sie sind erwacht"

Calvin & C. S. Lewis: Solving the Riddle of the Reformation

Author: Jordan Ferrier

Why do two groups of Christians read the same verses of Scripture and reach radically opposing views of the Sovereignty of God and the Responsibility of Man? Starting with what Augustine called the very beginning of our faith, the system of Calvinism is explained from its foundation in the attributes of Omniscience, Omnipotence and Perfection in God, up through the Perseverance of the Saints. This system of belief, supported by numerous quotes from Augustine, Luther, Calvin, R. C. Sproul, James White, and John Piper, trusts in the absolute sovereignty of God. This is not simply an explanation of what Calvinism teaches, instead this is an explanation of WHY Calvinists all reach the same conclusions of what Scripture teaches. This systematic approach using the writings of Calvin, and supporting evidence from current Calvinists, will help non-Calvinists as well as life-long Calvinists better understand exactly what Calvinism teaches. C. S. Lewis understood Calvinism better than most Calvinists. Beginning with the same attributes of God as they relate to the creation and fall of man, Lewis systematically addressed the foundational reasoning used by Calvin to develop his theology. Finding Orthodoxy is as simple as understanding these two opposing systems of belief. This presentation of what Calvin and C. S. Lewis taught, breaks down a very complex issue into a series of steps that interlock in a way that allows for an understanding of Sovereignty, Responsibility, Election, Predestination, and Salvation. Most books describe the two protestant views of theology that came out of the Reformation as Calvinism and Arminianism. After the death of John Calvin and Jacobus Arminius, the followers of Arminius issued a document disagreeing with five of the points of Classic Calvinism. The Synod of Dort was convened to counter these five Arminian points, and issued the now familiar five TULIP points of Calvinism. Calvin and C. S. Lewis: Solving the Riddle of the Reformation (C&C) is not another simple rehash of these five points. Instead of beginning with Total Depravity, C&C examines the foundation that Total Depravity and the TULIP points are built upon. This starting point is not the authors opinion, instead, the starting point is what Augustine (called the father of Reformed Theology) and Calvin state to be the very beginning of our faith. C&C methodically lays out the complete system of Calvinism, using the starting point of Augustine and Calvin. The TULIP points are shown to be the top of the iceberg in the complete systematic theology of Calvin. When the complete system of Calvinism is explained, the futility of simply comparing the different views on the TULIP points is readily apparent. Tracing Calvinism to its first premise, the very foundation that Augustine, Calvin, and R.C. Sproul agree on, sets up the riddle of the reformation. After extensive documentation of Calvin's premises, C&C explains the how C. S. Lewis took the same starting point Calvin used and constructed a different systematic theology. The explanation of how Calvin and C. S. Lewis began with the same premises, yet arrived at different conclusions, solves the riddle of the reformation: Why two groups of Christians that read the same verses of Scripture reach radically opposing views of the sovereignty of God and the responsibility of man. C&C shows that the only definitive way to know which system is Orthodox -- to solve the riddle -- is to dig all the way down and examine this foundation. C&C is exhaustively researched, extensively documented, charitably presented, intellectually challenging, and gives excellent answers on the Sovereignty of God and the role of man in salvation.

Irresistible Faith

Becoming the Kind of Christian the World Can't Resist

"I love everything that Scott Sauls writes." -- Christine Caine What if Christians became the best advertisement for Jesus? Jesus said his followers would be a light to the world and a city on a hill--a warmly inviting, neighbor-loving, grace- and truth-filled destination for all. He envisioned his followers as life-giving neighbors, bosses, employees, and friends, the kind of people who return insults with kindness and persecution with prayers. Rooted in biblical convictions, they would extend love, empathy, and care to one another as well as to those who don't share their beliefs. Over time their movement would become irresistible to every nation, tribe, and tongue. Irresistible Faith is a blueprint for pursuing this vision in our current moment, of redeemed individuals and a renewed community working for a restored world. This is a way of being that gives a tired, cynical world good reason to pause and reconsider Christianity--and to start wishing it was true. "I miss the kind of church Scott describes in this book, and I don’t think I am alone." -- Donald Miller, author of Blue Like Jazz and Building a StoryBrand "An important call to resist the urge to lobby and position ourselves, but rather to be driven by gospel-powered love." -- Raechel Myers, founder and CEO of She Reads Truth "An antidote to much that is wrong with our Western, American version of Christianity.

Alice ist überzeugt, das Leben halte etwas ganz Besonderes für sie und ihren Sohn Robert bereit – als Künstlerin wird sie Anerkennung finden und ihr Bobby die Privatschule abschließen. Doch wie so oft kommt alles ganz anders als geplant... Richard Yates, ein Meister der klaren Worte, spiegelt in »Eine besondere Vorsehung« aufs Neue mit lakonischer Schärfe die Schattenseiten des amerikanischen Traums. Robert Prentice ist das Ein und Alles seiner Mutter Alice. Ihm, dem sie einst mit einer Statue ein Denkmal setzte, hat die Bildhauerin ihren bisher einzigen Kritikererfolg zu verdanken. Und mit seiner Hilfe – so viel ist sicher! – wird sie irgendwann künstlerische Anerkennung erzielen. Doch plötzlich steht sie allein da mit ihren Fantasien von einem glamourösen Künstlerleben, denn Robert meldet sich zum Militär und geht nach Europa, um auf den Schlachtfeldern des Zweiten Weltkriegs zu Ruhm und Ehre zu gelangen. Eine herzzerreißende Geschichte über eine von einseitigen Abhängigkeiten geprägte Mutter-Sohn-Beziehung und die Illusionen, die ein junger Mann sich über den Krieg macht – und gleichzeitig das Sittengemälde einer Gesellschaft, die von sozialer Härte und dem fruchtlosen Streben nach Idealen gekennzeichnet ist. Ein weiterer grandioser Roman von Richard Yates, »einem der wichtigsten amerikanischen Autoren des 20. Jahrhunderts« (FAZ).

What if we changed the face of evangelism? In a time when so many have a negative perception of evangelism, what if a new model was entirely biblical, loaded with skills, and more effective? Soul Whisperer shifts the emphasis from telling to a drawing paradigm. It develops biblically the pattern of Jesus, who did not give static presentations but rather customized his words to each hearer. By learning his ways, our words, too, can have pinpointed impact! Christians will discover how to draw out first, in order to read their friends and discern the relevant appeal of the gospel. In this way, the style is far more dynamic. It adapts! Understanding the non-believer's unique starting point will determine a distinct path. By creating a conversation about spiritual influence and what is involved in faith formation, this book charts ways for Christians to go deeper in evangelistic relationships. Most importantly, Soul Whisperer infuses skills that will shape a more Christ-likened missional disciple.
