1   The book of beginnings : the patriarchs, a promised nation, and the dawning of the second ageby Morris, Henry M.( 2014)   In
Location: Main Library /  222.11 Mor
 

2   God & time : four views(c2001)   In
Location: Main Library /  231.7 Gan
The eternal God has created the universe. And that universe is time-bound. How can we best understand God's relationship with our time-bound universe? For example, does God experience each moment of time in succession or are all times present to God? How we think of God and time has implications for our understanding of the nature of time, the creation of the universe, God's knowledge of the future, God's interaction with his creation and the fullness of God's life. In this book, four notable philosophers skillfully take on this difficult topic--all writing from within a Christian framework yet contending for different views. Paul Helm argues that divine eternity should be construed as a state of absolute timelessness. Alan G. Padgett maintains that God's eternity is more plausibly to be understood as relative timelessness. William Lane Craig presents a hybrid view that combines timelessness with omnitemporality. And Nicholas Wolterstorff advocates a doctrine of unqualified divine temporality. Each essay is followed by responses from the other three contributors and a final counter-response from the original essayist, making for a lively exchange of ideas. Editor Gregory E. Ganssle provides a helpful introduction to the debate and its significance. Together these five scholars conduct readers on a stimulating and mind-stretching journey into one of the most controversial and challenging areas of theology today.
 

3   The Glory of Christby Owen, John( 2004)   In
Location: Main Library /  232 Owe
see the glory of Christ is one of the greatest privileges that a Christian can enjoy. Anyone who does not see his glory in this world, will not see his glory in heaven and no one should look for anything in heaven that he has not experienced in this life. Just as looking directly into the sun darkens our vision, so Christ's heavenly splendour is too brilliant for our mind's eye but in seeing it by faith, we are prepared for heaven. In his immense essence, the infinite God is invisible to our finite human eyes and will remain so for eternity. Only "in the face of Jesus Christ" can we see God and be filled with peace and rest. Read this book and may God by his Word and Spirit give you such a sense of his uncreated glory, blazing forth in Christ, that you will be satisfied and filled with joy. This is the original text with a new layout and is fully subtitled which makes it more accessible to a new generation of readers!

5   A woman who trusts God : finding the peace you long forby Alsdorf, Debbie.(c2011)   Due:05/04/2014
Location: Main Library /  248.843 Als
Our lives are filled with inbetween times, those times when we are not quite where we would like to be (or where we thought we'd be). Dreams are on hold, prayers seem unanswered, and life can feel hard. And just when we think we have it all together, life happens again! During these times it can be difficult to see God in our situations and trust him with the future. With empathy and wit, Debbie Alsdorf uses the book of Philippians to encourage women to lean on God, to live one day at a time, to rejoice and not to worry, and to give thanks to God in all circumstances of life. The confidence and peace readers will gain from the perspective presented in this loving book will help them live fully in the moment, in every season of life.

Eggerichs builds on a foundation of strong biblical principles, walking the reader through an entirely new way to approach the family dynamic.

In the Bible, God has spoken specifically to parents on how to parent. This book is about that revelation.
 

8   The intolerance of toleranceby Carson, D. A.( 2012)   In

Location: Main Library /  CD 248.4 Lut
Here is spiritual meat that believers need if they wish to grow! A life without doctrine is a tree without roots, a building without a foundation.

43   Owning a forgiving heart [1 CD]by Hegg, David( 2014)   In
Location: Main Library /  CD SERMON 2014 02-23
In any relationship forgiveness is essential simply because conflict is inevitable. But just what is forgiveness? And just as important, what isn’t it? Paul, using God’s forgiveness of us in Christ as the motive, calls his readers to understand first that the presence of bitterness and its fruits will make forgiveness impossible. These must be put off, and kindness put on, in order for us to be able to truly forgive.
 

44   Sexual Purity Matters [1 CD]by Hegg, David( 2014)   In
Location: Main Library /  CD SERMON 2014 03-02
When it comes to being distinctive for Christ, no place gives us more opportunity or challenge than sexuality. The pull of sex is everywhere. It increasingly forms the “wallpaper” of our world. We can’t escape its reach, but we must deny its invitations to immorality. Paul speaks directly and dogmatically to the Ephesian church, and this is a message that is both relevant and vital to us today.
 

45   Spirit-filled living [1 CD]by Hegg, David( 2014)   In
Location: Main Library /  CD SERMON 2014 03-09
Many today are confused as to what a “Spirit-filled life” looks like. Questions abound: “What does it mean to be indwelt by the Spirit? What is the baptism of the Spirit? And what does it mean to be filled with the Spirit?” In a day when there is much confusion regarding the Spirit’s involvement in the church, it is refreshing to have the Apostle Paul guide us simply and clearly in the direction we ought to go in order to live lives that are pleasing to our Savior.
 

46   The privilege of a believing wife [1 CD]by Hegg, David( 2014)   In
Location: Main Library /  CD SERMON 2014 03-16
God’s design for marriage comes to us with a specific order or structure. In this design, wives are asked to fulfill the role of helper/completer to their husbands who are charged by God with the role of loving leadership. Today’s culture often suggests that such a design is archaic and even demeaning to women. But such is not the case if we understand that God’s desire for our marriages is for our holiness, first, and then for our happiness.
 

47   The privilege of a believing husband [1 CD]by Hegg, David( 2014)   In
Location: Main Library /  CD SERMON 2014 03-23
God’s design for marriage includes an authority structure that calls for wives to respect their husband’s position of leadership in voluntary submission. But what does God expect from husbands? Strangely, Paul gives no instructions on how to lead. Rather, he calls for sacrificial love that treats your wife as well as you treat yourself! This “sanctified self-love” has as its goal to make your wife’s life-experience the best it can be, to the glory of God.
 

48   Family Matters [1 CD]by Hegg, David( 2014)   In
Location: Main Library /  CD SERMON 2014 03-30
The call to live as "spirit-filled" people means that every area of life is to be fueled by the indwelling Spirit of God. this applies as well to the parent-child relationship. Grounded in the 5th commandment, Paul's exhortation demonstrates that the very first place we are called upon to be submissive to authority is as a child to our parents. and this obedience is to be fostered through proper standards of parental power modeled by fathers.
 

49   The Lord's supper: a family meal [1 CD]by Hegg, David( 2014)   In
Location: Main Library /  CD SERMON 2014 04-06
Throughout history, the celebration of the Lord’s Supper has been understood as a family meal, a time when those connected to Christ revel in their connectedness with one another. Yet, sadly, the Supper has also been the subject of great division in the church as some have made too much of the bread and cup, and others not enough. Today we take our whole time together to remind ourselves of Jesus’ intentions in the bread and cup and to rest in the love we share as members of His family. Today the family comes together to enjoy a celebratory meal. We celebrate our Savior’s humility and saving power even as we recognize that, through Him, we are the family of God.
 

50   Working for Christ [1 CD]by Garcia, Gabe( 2014)   In
Location: Main Library /  CD SERMON 2014 04-13
In Ephesians, Paul not only unpacks the theological truth of the gospel but demonstrates how this truth should have a bearing on the new community that Christ is forming; one that is united in Christ. Though we are ultimately called to submit to Christ, we are also called to recognize the authority structures that God has placed over us: Paul addresses the marriage relationship, the relationship between children and parents and finally the relationship between masters and servants. This weekend we will wrestle with Paul’s call to examine our performance and our hearts in the workplace. He will admonish both those with authority and those under authority to view their work under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
