Jesus Centered Youth Ministry

He Fights for You

He Fights for You
By Max & Andrea Lucado

Guilt.  Resentment.  Pride.  Rejection.  They circle your life and steal your joy.  They leave you marginalized, unhappy, and weary.

Fearing God

Fearing God
By David Mears

The Good and Beautiful Community

The Good and Beautiful Community
By James Bryan Smith

In this third book in the Apprentice Series, James Bryan Smith helps us know how to live in relationship with others as apprentices of Jesus.  “Apprentices of Jesus are not part-time do-gooders,” he writes.  “They live in continuous contact with the kingdom of God, and are constantly men and women in whom Christ dwells.  They do not sometimes tell the truth, sometimes live sacrificially or sometimes forgive.  There are myriad opportunities for us to impact the world More

The Good and Beautiful Life

The Good and Beautiful Life
By James Bryan Smith

“I have never met a person whose goal was to ruin his or her life.  We all want to be happy, and we want it all of the time.”  So begins James Bryan Smith in The Good and Beautiful Life.  The problem is, he tells us, we have bought into false notions of happiness and success.  These self-centered decisions lead us further into the vices that cause ruin: anger, lust, lying, worry and judging.  Eventually we find ourselves living a beautifully packaged life of self-destruction.   More

邪惡與上帝新世界

《邪惡與上帝新世界》
作者: 賴特 (N.T. Wright)

雖然Evil這四個字母令人討厭,但上帝也給我們Love,這充滿盼望的四個字母!

恐怖的新聞不斷挑戰我們的生活,迫使我們對世界感到絕望。地震、水災或乾旱等天災肆虐,殺害、暴力、欺壓等恐怖行動衝擊世界的秩序,究竟何來上帝的盼望?循規蹈矩的我們,不作奸犯科、不違抗法律,為什麼要與那些惡者一同受苦?何來上帝美善的創造?公義的上帝為什麼容忍邪惡存在,並允許它虧損美善的受造世界?   More
