Second in a new series of expository guides to the Bible, Timothy Keller's Judges for You walks you through the book of Judges, showing how the flawless God is at work in the most flawed situations and the most failing people.

Combining a close attention to the detail of the text with Timothy Keller's trademark gift for clear explanation and compelling insights, this resource will both engage your mind and stir your heart.

Tim Keller does a good job with Judges but then he breaks his own rule in the end. He has said that you need to sum up the argument of someone you wish to criticize in a way they would recognise. Biblical revelation comes from God and the Bible is canon. If God gives revelation to someone it must agree with scripture. Now then go from there.

The Challenge of Jesus poses a double-edged challenge: to grow in our understanding of the historical Jesus within the Palestinian world of the first century, and to follow Jesus more faithfully into the postmodern world of the 21st century.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

i would recommend this book to a friend, with the thought that he is a smart guy and will challenge you. i have a different understanding of who Jesus is and consequently who i am.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jesus because i saw how much of culture was arrayed against him and yet he continued his mission.

The China Study offers conclusive evidence that a change of diet can dramatically reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The book is based on the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted, a 20-year joint project between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine. The study surveyed the eating habits of 6,500 adults from all over China and Taiwan and found a direct correlation between diet and disease.

According to international church starter and pastor Neil Cole, if we want to connect with young people and those who are not coming to church, we must go where people congregate. Cole tells listeners how to plant the seeds of the Kingdom of God in the places where life happens and where culture is formed: restaurants, bars, coffeehouses, parks, locker rooms, and neighborhoods.

What did you love best about Organic Church?

This book takes us back to the Church as God set it up. This book helps the relational, tribal aspects of the Bile to be seen. It is permission not to play with the dinosaur.

What other book might you compare Organic Church to and why?

Bible

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
