    Desiring God: The Meditations of a Christian Hedonist is, hands down, the most important book (except the Bible) that I have ever read. It is a series of profoundly biblical meditations on Scripture, rooted in painstaking exegesis by a competent and well-trained New Testament scholar, illustrated from the pages of history, and validated by the changed lives of hundreds of young men and women.   On Walls and Oneness: Reflections on the Book of Ephesians We recognize that he specifically directed this letter to the Ephesians in the first Jewish-Christian community at Ephesus. But the Holy Spirit also speaks to each of us throughout the sacred text, because He is its ultimate Author.

    This book, the first of its kind to explore the theology of The Christian Community in a systematic way, asks such questions and offers many insights into religious life and experience. In the first half, Tom Ravetz addresses questions about God, the Trinity, the Incarnation, the Holy Spirit and evil. Fuller president [–] Richard J. Mouw (right) is committed to the “convening power” of the seminary (see “Witnessing, Learning, Cooperating: Fuller’s Commitment to Civil Dialogue”) and has promoted rigorous dialogues, including those between leaders from the Jewish and Christian communities (at left, Rabbi Mark S. Diamond in ).

    Christian Community inculudes ten studies for individuals or groups. This revised Bible study features additional questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with expanded leader's notes and a "Now or Later" section in each study. Reflections on Wisdom Author(s): John L. McKenzie books and monographs on the historical and prophetic books. In the Hebrew canon the wisdom books are classified with "the writings," a designation which one might paraphrase as "the other books." wisdom tradition in the books of the primitive Christian community.
