Moody Bible Institute will celebrate 125 years of ministry in 2011. The “official” history of MBI is being updated by Jim Vincent, to be released in time for Founder’s Week in February, 2011.
Jim Vincent (BA, UCLA; MA, UIC), was a member of faculty, an editor of Moody Magazine, and is today a senior editor for Moody Publishers. Jim helped update The Story of MBI (released in 1986), and has written Parting the Waters and co-authored A Vision with Wings.
This volume will be the most comprehensive, up to date review of the history, ministry and impact of the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago. A four color photo insert is planned, along with a helpful appendix with the original constitution and bylaws, as well as a timeline of significant dates and events.
In the eerie, classic television show The Twilight Zone, characters caught in the zone wanted nothing more than to return to normal life. Similarly, survivors of severe trauma fall into the trauma zone–place they want to escape from, but can’t. Some cannot move forward, feeling stuck and victimized by their past. Some cannot see the present, living in denial of what has happened. And others cannot learn from the past, repeating the same mistakes over and over. All of them find they can’t cope with the overwhelming emotions that accompany trauma. Collins, a licensed psychologist with over 25 years experience in the healthcare field, believes there is a way out of the trauma zone and back to emotional health, a path he outlines in this practical, encouraging book.
A competitive athlete trains for one thing- the game. Having the skills and knowing how to play aren’t enough- you need to perform when it matters. Yet so many of those same athletes live in a spiritual offseason. They have faith. They know the Word. But they sit back and watch others take the lead. Get in the Game encourages athletes to transfer their drive and determination to the spiritual realm and shows that there is far more than a game on the line.
Our culture is driven by a concept of beauty that negatively impacts adolescent girls. The Scriptures are full of assurances regarding our identity in Christ, inherent worth to the Creator, and the secrets to tapping into the source of true and lasting beauty, yet girls and young women continue to struggle with their focus on outer beauty. In Graffiti: Learning to See the Art in Ourselves, Erin Davis applies the language of God’s Word on identity, beauty, and worth to the life of a contemporary young woman. In fact, women who have never adequately dealt with this issue will find themselves reviewing their youth, and redirecting their spiritual eyes.
There’s only one way to overcome a spiritual terrorist.
The war on terror is out of balance. Billions of dollars and cutting-edge weaponry pitted against faceless zealots. Cunning foes who fight dirty. Though inferior in strength, they remain surprisingly deadly.
In spiritual terms, this conflict perfectly illustrates our vulnerability to Satan’s attacks. He exploits every advantage to destroy us–and his advantages are considerable. He’s a lot smarter than we are, he knows our weak points, he’s invisible, and he breaks all rules. How can we possibly defend ourselves against such an adversary?
The only way to overcome such a deadly foe is to know what Scripture says on the matter. Ray Pritchard tackles this challenge in Stealth Attack. By drawing upon the teaching and examples of Jesus, Peter, Paul, and others, he offers practical steps for outmaneuvering the most shameless and stealthy foe imaginable.
“I lived in Afghanistan for five years. I learned the rules – I had to.”
Riveting and fast paced, In the Land of Blue Burqas depicts sharing the love and truth of Christ with women living in Afghanistan, which has been called “the world’s most dangerous country in which to be born a woman.”
These stories are honest and true. The harsh reality of their lives is not sugar-coated, and that adds to the impact of this book. Through storytelling, the author shows how people who don’t know Christ come to see Him, His truth, and His beauty. The stories provide insight into how a Jesus-follower brought Jesus’ teachings of the Kingdom of God to Afghanistan. They reveal the splendor of Christ, the desire of human hearts, and that precious instance where the two meet.
All of the names ofthose involved—including Kate’s—plus the locations have been changed to protect the participants.
When church and culture look the same…
For the many Christians eager to prove we can be both holy and cool, cultural pressures are too much. We either compartmentalize our faith or drift from it altogether—into a world that’s so alluring.
Have you wondered lately:
Why does the Western church look so much like the world?
Why are so many of my friends leaving the faith?
How can we get back to our roots?
Disappearing Church will help you sort through concerns like these, guiding you in a thoughtful, faithful, and hopeful response. Weaving together art, history, and theology, pastor and cultural observer Mark Sayers reminds us that real growth happens when the church embraces its countercultural witness, not when it blends in.
It’s like Jesus said long ago, “If the salt loses its saltiness, it is no longer good for anything…”
