This book is an attempt to relate the wonderful biblical truths about the possibility of having a living, personal relationship with God. This truth comes down through the entire history of the Christian faith, as well as in the Bible. Yet there is very little teaching or promotion of this truth in organized religion. This lack of a presentation of the message of God as our Father results in a corresponding lack of power and freedom for effective daily living in the Christian community. Sadly, many people in religious organizations (not to mention people outside the religious system) doubt if a personal relationship with God is even possible. This is even sadder when we consider the Bible is very clear on this point. The Bible tells us that a personal relationship with God as our Father is not only possible but this relationship is God's greatest desire for us. It is Bill Landon's hope that this book will be an encouragement for those people who seek a spiritual life that has more practical impact on their daily living. For those who wish to explore the possibilities of a greater peace and fullness in their living, this book can be a help.
Many of the verses of Isaiah are familiar to us as beloved passages we read and sing each Christmas and Easter season. But Isaiah is more than just a holiday reading. Isaiah speaks of God's relationship to the prophet, the people, the kings, and the servant. Isaiah's message invites us to explore God's personal character and develop a deeper understanding of the living God, the Holy One of Israel.

Have you ever wondered how God sees us? Many questions exist today that did not exist in Jesus' time. How are we to know what God's opinion is about discipleship in our world? The ancient creed of Christianity serves as an intellectual guide to deep and lasting faith. The Early Church recognized that Christians would face challenges of every sort, and the most enduring challenge would be in the arena of ideas. The ancient creed reveals to us the ideas of God, how God understands Himself, creation, human beings, purpose and destiny. Yet, most of us are unfamiliar with this great treasure left to us by our forebears. We have a rich intellectual heritage as broad and deep as the mind of God Himself. The creed of the Early Church serves as a map or guide to authentic Christian faith. Within these boundaries of true belief, we can find God if we search with a humble and sincere heart. The worship of God with the mind forever changes our perception of the entire human experience. Read with the expectation that the mysteries of God will begin to be revealed to you, and allow the Holy Spirit to unleash your mind for Jesus Christ. Elizabeth Moreau is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church. Educated at Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University, Rev.

The From Called to Sent curriculum is a six course, three-year study designed to bring Christians into an ever deepening and more fruitful life in Christ. Rev. Moreau is available to speak as her health permits. Servants' Feast Christian Ministry www.servantsfeast.org PO Box 1626 Friendswood, Texas 77549
It is beyond debate that the world is troubled with numerous problems. We live in a time of political, economic and social uncertainty. While all of us earnestly hope that these problems will be worked out, we all differ widely in our views of the best route to get to these solutions. Perhaps the most basic issue in seeking solutions to our problems is the identification of the cause or source of these problems. As the world is an interconnected system where we all have some impact on the whole, it is logical to assume that the most basic issues of the world's problems lie within each of us individually. This book takes this approach. If we are to ever hope to move toward solutions to the world situation we must begin with each of our own individual situations. This is not a look at our physical situation but with our psychological and spiritual situation. The only way we can ever hope to build a better world is to build better people. The making of better people begins with a proper constitution of our "self" or the person we truly are. In the end, there are only two versions of our self that we can elect to live in-the independent self or the individual self. One of these versions leads to a life of bondage and the other leads to a healthy life of positive impact. This impact touches both our own life and the condition of all those we have contact with.
