MERE CHRISTIANITY, C. S. Lewis (Harper Collins)

Lewis wrote more than a score of books, but if a person were to read only one, then Mere Christianity should be the book. Dr. Lewis states his purpose in the Preface, “Ever since I became a Christian, I have thought that best, perhaps the only, service I could do for my unbelieving neighbours was to explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times.” This classic book is surely one of the best ever to encourage belief in Christ.

The Rage Against God, Peter Hitchens

Peter Hitchens is the brother of rabid atheist, Christopher Hitchens. Both were born in England and raised by parents that believed in God. Evidently though raised together, they were not close. Both turned from a Trotskyite socialism to political and economic conservatism. Both began as atheists at about ten years of age. Christopher became an increasingly fierce atheist as he grew older. In 2007, he published, God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything.

His brother, Peter, became disillusioned both with socialism and atheism—and over a period of time became a Christian. His book, The Rage Against God is a compelling apologetic for Christianity. He is a superb writer, immediately engages the reader, and presents the case for Christianity from a personal point of view. He is very well read. His thinking is comprehensive. Overall this book makes a compelling case for believing in the Bible and in Jesus Christ.

The first section of the book, Part 1, is autobiographical, explaining Peter’s journey from faithlessness to strong faith in Jesus Christ. Part 2 “Addressing the Three Failed Arguments of Atheism” deals with the following refutations of Atheistic arguments;

  1. Is Christianity responsible for many of the wars in the world?
  2. Is it possible to have a sound moral and legal system without God?
  3. Are atheistic political leaders somehow not influenced by their atheism?

Part 3 is entitled: “The League of the Militant Godless”.
Peter Hitchens effectively refutes the claims of atheists that the atheistic philosophy of the Communist rulers had nothing to do with the murderous cruelty of Communist governments. He states, “Soviet power was, as it was intended to be, the opposite of faith in God. It was faith in the greatness of humanity and in the perfectibility of human society. The atheists cannot honestly disown it.”

Bravo Billy Graham!

Dear Friends,

Last month’s book recommendation was Billy Graham’s Nearing Home; Life, Faith and Finishing Well. $19.99 retail / our price: $12.99

In the book’s introduction, Billy Graham writes : “ I never thought I would
live to be this old. All my life I was taught how to die as a Christian, but
no one ever taught me how I ought to live in the years before I die. I wish
they had because I am an old man now, and believe me, it’s not easy.”

“ Whoever first said it was right: old age is not for sissies.”

The book is an inspiring perspective on aging. He doesn’t ignore the aches
and pains nor the fears but believes it can be a very rewarding time in life.
Billy Graham notes that the Bible says God has a reason for keeping us
here. Learn through Billy Graham’s book how to be hopeful, effective, and
finish well.

It’s a great book for seniors and children of seniors to gain a keener
understanding regarding what one struggles with as they age and how
through Billy Graham’s words, one can age with grace and finish well.

GreenLeaf Press has a NEW BOOK!

Dear Friends!

We are pleased to offer you a preview of Graham Baird’s soon to be published book: One Hundred Years of Ministry: A Practical Guide for Ministers and Church Leaders.

100 Years-Graham BairdGraham Baird is an ‘out of the box’ minister In California’s wine country. He planted his church in a rented movie theater in Paso Robles 6 years ago with a congregation of 50 adults and 3 children.  Today, Graham ‘s church is the fastest growing Presbyterian Church in the United States.  With over 1,000 church attendees after 6 years, his story is an impressive one.  But the bigger story, which he has written, is about his family’s 100 years of ministry that has provided the foundation for his success.
“The idea for the book came as I talked to a lot of church leaders, pastors and elders, who were struggling in tears over the phone, saying that they don’t know what to do in a particular situation. “ said Baird.  I found myself talking about how I can help them by remembering what my grandpa would have done. “
Graham’s book is practical, inspiring and loaded with humor, colorful stories and memorable insights from four generations of ministry experiences. The anecdotes from Graham’s father, grandfather and great-grandfather provide meaningful answers to everyday concerns and issues that face churches and its leaders today:
Questions of calling
Financial scrapes
Marital Juggling Acts 
Elder board challenges

Read how Graham’s church motto  “NO Perfect People Allowed” and his 100 Years of Ministry experience have helped him build a church that thrives.
