Are there solutions to everyday problems? Can there be meaning or purpose in life? Is it possible to know why we are here and where we are going? Why is there so much suffering and death? Is there life after death? Can we be enlightened here and now? Am I destined to lose all identity—to become part of a great nothingness? Is it true that there are no answers?
There is an ancient book that discusses the many questions in life. It is called the Holy Bible. But are the answers found within its pages trustworthy? To decide for yourself, you need to know what it really says.
By This Name peels the religion off this sacred book and lets the ancient story speak for itself. In the process, a message of hope snaps into focus. It is a must read.
“I understood things I never understood before. It was like a puzzle coming together. It made sense.”
Le but de ce livre est d’expliquer la plus importante histoire de la Sainte Bible. On dit que c’est le plus important récit jamais raconté. Mais ce livre n’est pas seulement une histoire. Il nous fournit aussi les réponses bibliques aux questions sur la vie, sur la mort et sur la vie après la mort. Il nous aide à comprendre le sens de la Bible.

En son nom, des guerres ont été livrées, des scandales ont été précipités, des politiques ont été formulées et reformulées. Les théologiens l’ont soit défendu, soit méprisé. Les sceptiques en ont fait autant. Si vous êtes un membre typique de la race humaine, tout le «tralala» entourant la Bible vous a sûrement laissé perplexe. Mais que dit-elle au juste?
Voici un livre qui explique clairement et logiquement le thème central de la Bible. Plutôt que de se concentrer sur une partie du livre et de passer à côté du message global, l’auteur relie chronologiquement l’ensemble du texte pour en faire une narration universelle qui présente les événements de la Bible selon la perspective des personnages qui les ont vécus. Le résultat est parfois comique, parfois effrayant, mais toujours fidèle au sens premier du texte.
Quand vous aurez terminé la lecture du présent livre, il se peut que votre foi en la Bible soit plus forte que jamais, ou encore que vous refusiez carrément d’y croire. L’approche objective adoptée par l’auteur vous laisse la liberté de choisir.
« Même si j’avais fréquenté l’église pendant plus de 30 ans, le message de la Bible n’a jamais eu de sens pour moi. Elle n’était remplie que d’histoires déconnectées les unes des autres. Mais maintenant, la Bible fait un tout, clair et logique. C’est réellement incroyable. »
All around the world, ordinary believers are taking their roles as ambassadors for Christ seriously. In their everyday lives, they keep their eyes and ears open for opportunities to share the gospel message. Sometimes, the encounters are brief—all they do is give away a book. Other times, believers are given the time to lead a friend through a study. In many instances, these opportunities result in people coming to faith in Jesus Christ. We are thankful that these testimonies involving GoodSeed resources have come to us and we rejoice in what God has done.
This second volume of Fieldnotes shares more of these precious stories. Read them and be encouraged. Praise God and rejoice with us, and glean ideas on how you too can be an ambassador for Christ.
What do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, His lack of intervention hurtful, and His promises doubtful?
Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness.
Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply. But she's also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. In It's Not Supposed to Be This Way, Lysa invites us into her own journey of faith and, with grit, vulnerability, and honest humor, helps us to:Stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations.Train ourselves to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so we can stand strong and persevere through unsettling relationships and uncertain outcomes.Discover the secret of being steadfast and not panicking when God actually does give us more than we can handle.Shift our suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing us.Know how to encourage a friend and help her navigate hard realities with real help from God's truth.
It’s been called “the most misunderstood book in history.”
Wars have been fought in its name, scandals have been precipitated by it, politics shaped and reshaped at its word. Theologians have both defended and reviled it. Skeptics have done the same. If you are a typical member of the human race, you have often been perplexed by all the “fuss” surrounding the Bible. The question remains, “What does it really say?”
Here is a book that explains the greatest of Bible themes clearly and logically. Rather than focusing on one part—and missing the whole—the author chronologically binds together the entire text into one great universal drama, looking at events from the perspective of those who experienced history in the making. The results are sometimes comical, sometimes frightening—but always true to the intent of the text.
When you are done reading it, you may find yourself believing “the Book” like you never have before. Or you may decide not to. The author’s objective approach leaves that decision up to you.
“Even though I had attended church for over 30 years, the Bible never made sense to me. It was just a bunch of disjointed stories. Now the Bible all fits together in a clear, logical manner. It really is incredible.”
The purpose of this book is to explain the most important story in the Holy Bible. It is a story that tells us what Christmas and Easter are all about. However the book doesn’t stop with the stories of these two festivals. It explains much more. It tells us the Bible’s answers to life, death, and life after death. It helps us understand what the Bible is all about!
