Is the Western world really post-Christian, or does Christianity simply need a reinterpretation? What did Dietrich Bonhoeffer mean by "religionless Christianity"? Is it pass? Or was it perhaps ahead of its time? In an era of dramatically increased religious pluralism and the emergence of large numbers of people identifying as "spiritual but not religious," so-called "religionless Christianity" can speak to those who find both biblicism and "belief-based" religion irrelevant. In this personal, witty, and timely book, New York Times bestselling author Thomas Cathcart takes readers on a journey into belief and unbelief and leads them through to the other side. Drawing from deep philosophical and theological wells, There Is No God and Mary Is His Mother demonstrates the meaningfulness of being a Christian in a secular age. Cathcart shows that, even absent traditional theological formulas and doctrines, Christianity can be a credible, meaningful, and practical means of negotiating worldly existence and experience. For Christians, There Is No God and Mary Is His Mother offers encouragement. For ex-Christians, it presents a different way of being a Christian than the one they've rejected. For atheists, it shows how Christianity can be an ally in affirming the here and now. Religionless Christianity is possible and desirable wherever and whenever it awakens personal and social transformation.

Is the longevity of the Catholic Church what Rome says it is? Were Christ's Apostles the original Catholics? Did Mary the mother of Jesus really help her Son to redeem mankind? Was the Gospel Jesus left to His disciples incomplete and in need of many additions to perfect it? This book, written by a convert from Catholicism to biblical Christianity, puts the chief claims and doctrines of the Catholic religion under the divine light of God's Word; searches for them in the halls of history; combs through the writings of apostolic fathers for evidence of their veracity. Chapter by chapter, Scripture by Scripture, the facade of holiness and patristic authority is peeled away, and the true apostate nature of Catholicism is exposed. For evangelical Christians, this work is a gold mine of information about Catholic doctrines and how to deal with the deeply embedded beliefs of those who call themselves Roman Catholics. To the devout Catholic, this book will be either a source of enduring anger, or a bright neon arrow pointing to the eternal, soul-saving Word of God.
mother of our Lord. However other than having been used as a vessel, there's no where in the Scripture where Mary is referred to as the mother of God.

Worship in spirit and in truth has to be based on God's Word that regulates us on how we must worship Him. The foundation of the regulative principle of worship is found in the first two commandments. Self-styled worship is unacceptable to God, regardless of the good intentions. Worship based on the traditions of men which were inspired by Satan are used as a sword and a shield against the truth. In doing this they successfully execute that very purpose which Satan intends them to; that of a false and perverse worship shielded by obstinacy. A top priority in choosing a church to become a member should be based on no other criteria than that of a church that has its form of worship based on biblical principals.

Mary Bouton can hardly believe anyone would want to live in a town without churches or God. But James, her young physician husband, is enthusiastic about Liberal, a new community being built in southwest Missouri. He sees an opportunity to start a medical practice, but Mary and their daughter, Bertha, are less than excited to leave the only home they have ever known. Even so, in a matter of weeks, the Bouton family is on their way to Liberal—a town that greets Christians at the depot with a sign that instructs them to get back on the train and separates Christians and “free thinkers” with a barbed wire fence. The years pass, and the Boutons immerse themselves in daily life in their new home. Then, tragedy strikes; their son, Claude, becomes the ?rst person to be buried in Liberal, a town now labeled an atheist, in?del community. As they helplessly watch their daughter, Bertha, blame herself for Claude’s death and searches endlessly for answers, the Boutons hope that one day, they can live in a peaceful community that embraces the goodness of God. No God, No Hell, No Churches, No Saloons is a compelling historical tale of love, family bonds, and the determination of a family to succeed in a town undergoing great change.

Jesus and the Incarnation Reflections of Christians from Islamic Contexts In the dialogues of Christians with Muslims nothing is more fundamental than the Cross, the Incarnation and the Resurrection of Jesus. An open and honest conversation on these is a necessity as Christians all over the world meet with Muslims on a daily basis. Building on the volume on the Cross, published in 2009, this book contains voices of Christians living in various 'Islamic contexts' and reflecting on the Incarnation of Jesus. The aim of these reflections is constructive and the hope is that the papers weaved around the notion of 'the Word' will not only promote dialogue among Christians on the roles of the Person and the Book but, also, create a positive environment for their conversations with Muslim neighbors.

Sprinkle Nowhere with Me and You is a comprehensive review of literature dealing with the soul, along with the author's observations and speculations. Gould's review ranges from ancient religious and philosophical texts to modern works of science. Sprinkle, whose title comes from a poem of the same name by E.E. Cummings, is not like current books about "discovering one's soul." It is an extraordinary look at the entire spectrum of what humanity has said and written about the nature of the soul. There is nothing else like it in print.
The resurrection is not only God's definitive victory over death, it is also ... the cross was not a mere man, and that his death was for our sins, not his.
