Unpredictable yet reliable, gentle yet powerful, authoritative yet humble, human yet divine. Respected pastor and best-selling author Tim Keller takes a deep and thought-provoking look at the life of Christ. Drawing from Mark's Gospel, he explains how Jesus' identity as king and his purpose in dying on the cross have meaning and significance on a cosmic scale as well as for the individual.

Should Christians keep the Sabbath? This is a detailed study of the Covenants in scripture with an emphasis on their relation to the Sabbath. Over 100 verses are sited in support of the audiobook's thesis, which is that the Sabbath, and indeed the entire Mosaic covenant has been fulfilled in Christ. This audiobook also contains detailed answers to common objections from Seventh Day Adventist and Messianic Jews.

bias interpretation of the Sabbath.
The Lord's day is clear in the Bible to be the Sabbath. Jesus is said to be the Lord of the Sabbath Mk 2.28 Mt 12.8 not of the first day of the week. after his death if anyone would ask the disciples what day was Jesus the Lord of, they would say the Sabbath. because that was what Jesus told them.
away too many bias interpretation to make his point right.

Evangelism is more than a program. Every few years, churches jump into the latest evangelistic fad. Leaders administrate the new program, and members go on a raid. But picture a church where evangelism is simply part of the culture. Leaders share their faith consistently and openly. Members follow, encouraging one another to make evangelism an ongoing way of life. Such is the way of evangelism presented by this brief and compelling book. No program here.

In an age where pleasing people, puffing up your ego and building your résumé are seen as the methods to 'make it', the Apostle Paul calls us to find true rest in blessed self-forgetfulness. This audiobook shows that gospel-humility means we can stop connecting every experience, every conversation with ourselves and can thus be free from self-condemnation. A truly gospel-humble person is not a self-hating person or a self-loving person, but a self-forgetful person. This freedom can be yours.

It's time for a return to Radical Holiness. Welcome to the 21st century, where you can now purchase and exchange personalities, depending on mood and circumstance; where you are told that you can be anyone you want to be, and identity is no longer based in a sense of self but rather in the imagery you choose at that moment. The Bible contains a radically different way of understanding our identity. The path that God has chosen for us to discover who we really are is the path of holiness....

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King, Jr.; Steve Jobs; and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why. Their natural ability to start with why enabled them to inspire those around them and to achieve remarkable things.

In The Road to Character, David Brooks, best-selling author of The Social Animal and New York Times columnist, explains why selflessness leads to greater success. We all possess two natures. One focuses on external success: wealth, fame, status and a great career. The other aims for internal goodness, driven by a spiritual urge not only to do good but to be good - honest, loving and steadfast. The inner self doesn't seek happiness superficially defined; it seeks emotional commitments without counting the cost and a deeper moral joy.

i have enjoyed listening this book and learning the big ideas and its main purpose to inspire in the listener/ reader the desire to pursue character rather than skills. great book with great ideas and concepts. well articulated and presented. some of the stories used were of people that have displayed and excel on certain character traits but failed in others. i found them no to be good examples.

Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.
