Détails: Mother Earth is warning that now is the time for life to change. In this narrative, written from her perspective, her twelve children have begun acting selfishly and inhumanely. She saw an increase in war, hunger, injustice and inequality. Her children were also harming the environment by polluting their planet and letting it become sick. In response, she sent out birds as messengers to observe and help her children as they learn the truth of their Divinity and their Oneness with Life. So begins The Spiritual Call to Become One, which seeks to usher in the Spiritual Truth of the Divine Light within Life. The Time of Change—an epoch of history predicted by author Tod William in ancient Atlantis—reveals that after a war in Pakistan, humanity will choose Peace and become one. With alien technology, humanity will travel the stars. The Divine Light within Life will guide humanity forward to greatness, and the Highest Source of Light will be given to Life. The Spiritual Call to Become One reveals Spiritual Truth as it has been channeled through Tod William, the reincarnation of an oracle from ancient Atlantis.

Détails: Saying Yes to God is written to help maturing Christians better recognize the voice of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit. The book is a practical resource for those looking for fresh insight to break through barriers and personal limitations in their relationship with God. In effect, this book offers hope to all those who earnestly want to know God better and to live Christ-centered, Spirit-led lives. Readers will not feel judged or shamed, but will hear a gentle but firm and persistent call to believe that God truly is at work in their lives, calling and leading them. Not only can they learn to recognize the Spirit's voice better, but they can learn how to work with God in tremendously satisfying and fruitful ways. This book's particular contribution lies in its simple presentation of important spiritual concepts, use of illustrations drawn from the author's spiritual life coaching practice and global teaching ministry, and special emphasis on how to love others better as an outflow of one's faith and personal relationship with God.

Détails: For almost two millennia, the story of Jesus has shaped the lives of countless people. Yet today, even though the majority of us grew up in a culture suffused by the mythos of Jesus, many of us feel disconnected from the essence of his teachings. With Resurrecting Jesus, Adyashanti invites us to rediscover the life and words of Jesus as a direct path to the most radical of transformations: spiritual awakening. Jesus crossed all of the boundaries that separated the people of his time because he viewed the world from the perspective of what unites us, not what divides us. In Resurrecting Jesus, Adya embarks on a fascinating reconsideration of the man known as Jesus, examining his life from birth to Resurrection to reveal a timeless model of awakening and enlightened engagement with the world. Through close consideration of the archetypal figures and events of the Gospels, Adya issues a call to “live the Christ” in a way that is unique to each of us. “When the eternal and the human meet,” writes Adya, “that’s where love is born—not through escaping our humanity or trying to disappear into transcendence, but through finding that place where they come into union.” Resurrecting Jesus is a book for realizing this union in your own life, with heart and mind wide open to the mystery inside us all. With an all-new foreword by Episcopalian priest and scholar Cynthia Bourgeault.

Détails: This is a book with a practical message for the new convert, older believers and even leaders that will help each one of them to grow more and more in their walk with the Lord, and to rise to great heights with the Lord. In its preface, the author Z.T. Fomum specifies that these are eleven messages given to the church in Rixheim (France), during their spiritual retreat in July 1989. This book is about the basic lessons for any believer who wants to grow in his walk with the Lord, to be all that the Lord wants him to be, in order to rise beyond the limitations generally brought about by mediocrity.

Détails: “BROKENNESS,” by Professor Fomum, is a real classic for walking the Christian life with total abandonment to the Lord. After the new birth, a man’s spirituality is not measured by his capacity to preach great sermons, to cast out demons, or to heal the sick. Such capacities could be the manifestation of spiritual gifts, which are received from God, regardless of who the person is. Such a person may • be totally unrecognizable at the slightest provocation, • be selfish and self-centred, • love sin, • hide or blame others for his mistakes and failures, • get worried when faced with the least problem, and act before he has prayed about it, • etc. This talks of an unbroken life in which, unfortunately, most believers who truly confess the name of the Lord, find themselves several years after conversion. The purpose of God in the new creation is to produce people who attain spiritual maturity, by quickly attaining the stature of broken men and women. God does it through the cross, to break and destroy the natural man and, by the work of the Holy Spirit, to build the character of Christ in the believer. Brokenness therefore depends on the degree to which a person has allowed the cross and the Holy Spirit to work in him. Taking Jacob’s life as a basis, the author shows how one can go from the state of the natural man (unconverted) to that of a carnal believer (unbroken), then to that of a spiritual believer (broken); that is, a life in which the believer belongs totally to the Lord, allows free access to God in the minutest details of his life, no longer presents any obstacle to God. Read this book. It will challenge you and help you to make progress on the pathway of brokenness, to such an extent that you will soon be able to confess with apostle Paul, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.”

Détails: You Are Meant to Be a Mentor You probably have more "friends" than ever--once you tally up all your social networking connections. But virtual relationships alone can't meet the Church's desperate need for spiritually mature women and men to mentor younger believers to be faithful servants of Christ. If you are like many believers, you may not feel prepared to be a trusted influencer because you haven't had a spiritual mother or father yourself. The Cry for Spiritual Mothers and Fathers, written by seasoned disciple and Christian leadership trainer Larry Kreider, will give you the proven biblical keys you need to become a godly mentor. Discover why spiritual mother- and fatherhood is every believer's calling, and find out how to nurture a spiritual family that expands the kingdom of God. This is the essential handbook for answering God's call to become the spiritual father or mother He has called you to be.

Détails: This critically important book is presented by the author as ‘‘An attempt to provide the needful for the Lord’s call to make disciples ...’’ It is a statement of the revelations, doctrines, methods, and principles of discipleship aimed at helping anyone to experience discipleship and thereby lead others to grow in a way to become active workers in making others into disciples of Jesus Christ. It is a book to read and recommend to any servant of God cognizant of the glorious mission that the Lord Jesus Christ has entrusted to His church: "Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations …" Finally, the making of disciples is all about the work of transforming a sinner into a repentant sinner, a repentant sinner into a convert, a convert into a young disciple, leading the young disciple to spiritual maturity and, finally, helping him to become a disciple-maker. This book is highly recommended to the body of Christ.

Détails: People must be led. When there is a leader, he is followed. The spiritual leader is the one who has made the most progress in knowing God and is serving Him. Such a person has authority with God which no one can take away from him. No one can remove him from leadership. No one can put him into leadership. His intimate knowledge of God, his close walk with Him, his sacrificial service for the Lord and His people, put him apart from the others, and those who want true spiritual leadership turn to him. This is my understanding of spiritual leadership. Since people must be led, they will of necessity be led somewhere. If the leader is going nowhere, the people will follow him - to nowhere. If he is going where God wants him to go, people will follow him and by so doing, they will get to the place where God wants them to be. It is therefore important that the leader sees very clearly where God wants him and the people to go. After he has seen, he must be desperate to get there, not alone but with the people. He must finally move from being desperate to desperate action. The act of seeing is vision. The weight to see that which is seen become reality is burden. The right vision will lead to a burden which must be discharged by action. In “Vision, Burden and Action,” we set forth what we believe is a message for the Body of Christ now. We believe that this message is for every believer, and not just for some members of the Body. It is for all current leaders and for all would-be leaders. It is for those who lead millions of people, and also for you who is perhaps still leading only one person - yourself. These messages were first preached in the church over two week-ends in 1984. Believers gathered from about ten localities and the Lord spoke and taught them and taught me. We send them out with prayer that the Lord would use them to bless you very abundantly. Amen.

Détails: The earnest intercessor and serious spiritual warrior will want to read this book. About this book, Dr. Lester Sumrall in his Forward writes: "Many have written concerning fasting. Few have experienced extended fasts several times per year from forty-eight hours per week and from twenty-one to forty days' duration with such results as Dr. Fomum and believers in some of the Churches in Cameroon.... The reader of The Ministry of Fasting is caught up in the reality of fasting unto the Lord.... Along with Bible characters, the Church fathers from Savanarola, Martin Luther, Knox, Wesley, Jonathan Edwards, and modern Church leaders, both living and dead, are cited as exemplary among those who valued fasting unto victory in Christ.... Dr. Fomum explores - the aspects of fasting, - interference of spirits, and - the different reasons to fast: - for deliverance, - for ministering unto the Lord, and - for mourning... He helps one with - preparations for fasting, - how to intercede while fasting, - how to break a fast, - what to do after a fast, and - how to maintain the results of a fast. The book is written, as the others of his books, in a teachable, expanded outline format. The earnest intercessor and serious spiritual warrior will want to read this book." In fact, even if you fear fasting, this book will help you to start this vital Christian discipline.

Détails: One of the supreme essentials of all successful living is to strike the right balance in life. This book helps determine our inner, outer & soul physical universes with sheer precision. Ralph Waldo Trine was a philosopher, mystic, teacher and author of many books, and was one of the early mentors of the New Thought Movement. His writings had a great influence on many of his contemporaries including Ernest Holmes, founder of Religious Science. He was a true pioneer in the area of life-transforming thought. No other New Thought author has sold more books than he, his writings reaching far beyond New Thought circles out to the general public, which has bought and read Trine's books without ever knowing that they were New Thought.

Détails: In the world, people look at success principally from the angle of what a person has done. What he is, is of secondary importance. In the kingdom of God, who a person is is crucial and what he does is only an overflow of what he is. God looks at success, first of all, from the point of who we are and only secondarily from what we do. What someone who is rightly related to the Lord does, and another who is out of touch with the Lord does, are miles apart before God. So, for success before God, the person must be right and the motive must be right. So, who has done a thing, what he has done and why he has done it are determinant. This book then looks at success at God’s view point. Success is what God calls success and not what the world calls success. Success is that which meets God’s approval in time and will meet his approval at the judgement seat of Christ. May our God bless you as you read the messages in this book

Détails: This book is not written to provide theoretical knowledge of God's point of view on the subject. It is about bringing the believer into the spiritual experience of the sanctified life. It is an in-depth study of chapters 6 and 7 of the epistle to the Romans. The believer is saved from the consequence of sin and delivered from the power of sin. Therefore, he can experience deliverance from sin and the power of sin on a daily basis. This book answers two fundamental questions and, by extension, all those related to them: How did we become sinners? How can we get out of Adam's nature? How can we become a slave to righteousness? How can we experience walking by the Spirit? It is also in this book that you can discover the spiritual meaning of the deliverance of the law. It is a true and practical guide in sanctification. May the Lord bless you in its reading.

Détails: I am burdened by the increasing numbers of believers who know the Lord very superficially. They do not love Him. They find the time spent in His presence uninteresting. Often they do not know what to say to Him. We live in a generation that does not provide for quiet. Everything is moving fast. There is so much activity going on. The leaders of the day, be they in worldly circles or in the Church, are activists. Those who withdraw to wait on God are few. We believe that when believers in an increasing number, begin to withdraw and spend time alone in God's presence, something will happen to them. They will know God and then they will seek Him more and more. They will serve Him from His presence and things will be different. They will make spiritual progress. We send out this small book with prayer that the Lord will use it to help some make spiritual progress by withdrawing to seek God, know Him and obey Him. If you have been blessed through reading this book, please help put a copy in the hands of another believer and pray that he, too, will be blessed.

Détails: The spiritual emotions of my heart. The “Way of Loving the Lord” is very different from many of the books in The Christian Way Series. It is not an attempt to present the Bible position on some aspects of Christian Truth. Rather, it is an expression of the yearning, longing - the spiritual emotions of my heart - after the Lord Jesus. I believe that there are some who yearn in an increasing way for the Lord, and in whose hearts the evidence of His soon coming awakens, with each passing day, greater desires to see Him - the Hope of the Ages - face to face. It is because of the presence of such saints in the church today, though their number be few, that I dare share these feelings of my heart in this way. I send this book out with prayer, that many hearts be touched to seek the Beloved, and that such seekers should pray for me so that the Lord may soon grant the one desire of my heart - to know Him and to see Him face to face.

Détails: Tracing a path through Kierkegaard's writings, this book brings the reader into close contact with the texts and purposes of this remarkable 19th century Danish writer and thinker. Kierkegaard writes in a number of voices and registers: as a sharp observer and critic of Danish culture, or as a moral psychologist, and as a writer concerned to evoke the religious way of life of Socrates, Abraham, or a Christian exemplar. In developing these themes, Mooney sketches Kierkegaard's Socratic vocation, gives a close reading of several central texts, and traces 'The Ethical Sublime' as a recurrent theme. He unfolds an affirmative relationship between philosophy and theology and the potentialities for a religiousness that defies dogmatic creeds, secular chauvinisms, and restrictive philosophies.
