Weaves together biblical exposition and practical application to demonstrate how emotions relate to the Christian life.
Emotions are a vital part of what it means to be a human being made in the image of God and redeemed in Jesus Christ. But often our emotions confuse and mislead us. So what is the proper place for emotions in a Christian’s walk of faith?
In Feelings and Faith Brian Borgman draws from his extensive biblical knowledge and his pastoral experience to help readers understand both divine and human emotions. After laying a biblical foundation he moves on to practical application, focusing on how Christians can put to death ungodly emotional displays and also cultivate godly emotions.
This biblically informed, practical volume is helpful for pastors, counselors, and serious-minded Christians who wish to develop a full-orbed faith that encompasses their emotional life.

Have you ever asked “Why did God allow Adam and Eve to sin? Why did he create mosquitoes? What is God’s plan for me?” Sometimes we have really tough questions. We wonder if there is anyone who can give us an answer. Some questions are about life, some are about death – some of them are even about God. How can we get answers to questions about God and the Bible? Well – one way is to read the Bible – the Word of God. Joel Beeke helps us by taking our questions about life, death, sin, salvation and many other topics we can find confusing and teaching us what God says in his Word. Sometimes we have tough questions, sometimes we don’t get the answers we want or expect, but the Word of God is faithful and we can trust that what we need to know, God will reveal to us.
Children from a variety of backgrounds have come up with the questions in this book and Joel Beeke has done his best to answer these in the light of God’s Word. These are real questions from real children in real life situations – and a real pastor with a genuine concern for their souls takes them to the one true God and the real gospel.
In a world filled with an abundance of medical knowledge, comfort-based technology, and global communication-resources wherefore comes this image of perpetual suffering and pain? Why have we not resolved the ache, the needs, and the cries of a broken society?
This book offers a pondering on pain and suffering. It reflects the mind of a sojourner, a visitor to this world, a stranger in a strange land, a Christian. It ponders what a man might see if he had vision into the world of spirits and devils, if he had a better understanding of God’s eternal plan for absolute goodness among all mankind.
How great is the profit associated with the promotion of immorality and the punishment thereof? Men savor power and wealth, and we will not easily surrender our position among other men. So long as lucrative plunder remains the product of immorality, evil men will continue to embrace corruption. So long as advantage perceived lingers near, the same people who promote filthy lucre in “acceptable” measures also reap gain when immorality is punished. It is the nature of a depraved mind.
As a people and as a nation, Americans need change. Yet the change we seek is mired beneath the nature of human desires. Active, healthy and Godly correction requires honest and sincere labor from dedicated and involved Christians. Yet we let those who promote depravity retain the judgment over justice. Can you not see? Will you not comprehend? So long as immorality contains even a measure of financial profit, no flesh will seek to fully eliminate the cause and effect of wickedness.
What you read here is a work that I began while residing at Butner Federal Medical Center in Butner, North Carolina. FMC is a US federal hospital dedicated to the treatment and housing of the adult male prison populace. As such, the medical as well as incarceration needs and requirements of those who do battle with the various short-term and long-term diseases, illnesses, and mental disorders that plague the human race are managed by prison guards and professional prison staff members. This service, by nature, places together inmates from all around the USA. FMC houses men of variable security classification. The inmates range from low-level minor offenders to camp-eligible short timers to maximum confinement prison lifers.
For me, the opportunity to minister against the effects of such a broad range of crime is an ever-present calling and blessing. Men come and go, many of which end up listed in the prison records under the heading, “escape by death.” Such is the matter of our social sickness. Such is the modern method for addressing this segment of suffering and death.
I weep for the half-crazed wives who endure the unexpected wrongs of a husband who has brought down the shattering of a peaceful household. I weep for the fatherless child who is being cheated by the ugliness of this world system. I weep for the victims and their families.
And I weep over the torn homes, endless loss of grace, and overwhelming sorrows.

Decades of Loss, an Unsolved Mystery,
and a Rift Spanning Three Generations
Hazel DeFord is a woman haunted by her past. While berry picking in a blackberry thicket in 1943, ten-year old Hazel momentarily turns her back on her three-year old sister Maggie and the young girl disappears.
Almost seventy years later, the mystery remains unsolved and the secret guilt Hazel carries has alienated her from her daughter Diane, who can’t understand her mother’s overprotectiveness and near paranoia. While Diane resents her mother’s inexplicable eccentricities, her daughter Meghan—a cold case agent—cherishes her grandmother’s lavish attention and affection.
When a traffic accident forces Meghan to take a six-week leave-of-absence to recover, all three generations of DeFord women find themselves unexpectedly under the same roof. Meghan knows she will have to act as a mediator between the two headstrong and contentious women. But when they uncover Hazel’s painful secret, will Meghan also be able to use her investigative prowess to solve the family mystery and help both women recover all that’s been lost?
