"The central miracle asserted by Christians is the Incarnation. They say that God became Man. Every other miracle prepares the way for this, or results from this." This is the key statement of Miracles, in which C. S. Lewis shows that a Christian must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of the unique personal involvement of God in his creation.

The intellectual agnostic will find themselves in a bar fight with a Navy SEAL, or in a viper pit wearing flip-flops. He knows the Skeptic because he was a brilliant one, a burned out wounded War vet, and then... the most unlikely convert, you will need to think about each chapter, worth the study.

The Christian church has a long tradition of systematic theology - that is, studying theology and doctrine organized around fairly standard categories such as the word of God, redemption, and Jesus Christ. This introduction to systematic theology has several distinctive features: a strong emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine and teaching; clear writing, with technical terms kept to a minimum; and a contemporary approach, treating subjects of special interest to the church today.

  • The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert

In her late 30's, Rosaria encountered something that turned her world upside down - the idea that Christianity, a religion she had regarded as problematic, might be right about who God was. That idea seemed to fly in the face of the people and causes that she most loved. What follows is a story of what she describes as a train wreck at the hand of the supernatural. These are her secret thoughts about those events, written as only a reflective English professor could.

As a life long Evangelical, my toes were thoroughly mangled at times. Her story is compelling, and well told, the distance she has travelled in her conversion is breathtaking. It is a stirring testament to the power of the HS and high quality biblical teaching, as well as personal small group mentoring. Substantive, lessons for church elders & pastors, read it.
