“So that in everything He might have the supremacy.” —Colossians 1:18 Christians have made the gospel about so many things—things other than Christ. Religious concepts, ideas, doctrines, strategies, methods, techniques, formulas, "its" and "things" have all eclipsed the beauty, the glory, and the reality of the Lord Jesus Himself. On the whole, Christians today are starved for a real experience of the living Christ. We know a lot about our Lord, but we don't know Him very well. We know a lot about trying to be like Jesus, but very little about living by His indwelling life. JESUS MANIFESTO presents a fresh unveiling of Jesus as not only Savior and Lord, but as so much more. It is a prophetic call to restore the supremacy and sovereignty of Christ in a world—and a church—that has lost sight of Him. Every revival and restoration in the church has been a rediscovery of some aspect of Christ in the process of answering the ultimate question that Jesus put to His disciples: "Who do you say that I am?" Read this book and see your Lord like you've never seen Him before.

Jesus says, “The Scriptures point to me!” (John 5:39 NLT). But what does that mean exactly? The twenty-seven books of the New Testament are largely a commentary on the Old Testament, and each part of the Bible is a signpost to Jesus. Once this is properly understood, everything changes, including our own identities. In this magisterial work you will discover a Jesus who is larger, more glorious, and more challenging than most of us have ever imagined. Biographies of Jesus generally have been written by those trying to investigate the historical Jesus with little attention given to the grand narrative of Scripture. On the flip side, those interested in tracing the theology of Scripture are typically disinterested in historical Jesus studies. These two approaches have yet to converge...until now. Jesus is written for the average reader as well as scholars. Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola (authors of Jesus Manifesto) unfold the greatest story ever told in a fresh and invigorating way. So whether you are a seasoned Christian, a new believer, or someone who is intrigued by Jesus, this book unveils the discoveries of a lifetime, transforming the tired and familiar way we have read the Bible into an electrifying journey of rediscovering Christ. Introducing a new kind of Jesus biography. In this compelling work, authors Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola reclaim the entire Bible as a gripping narrative about Jesus Christ. Virtually every other “Jesus biography” begins with the nativity account in Bethlehem. In this groundbreaking book, Sweet and Viola begin before time, in the Triune God, and tell the complete interconnected story of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation. Jesus: A Theography is the first book ever written to combine historical Jesus studies with biblical theology, crafting together one breathtaking saga that tells the Jesus story in both Old and New Testaments. This flagship book demonstrates clearly that every bit of Scripture is part of the same stunning drama, what the authors refer to as the theography of Jesus Christ.

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. ~ Jesus, John 10:27 Countless Christians today are hungry to hear God’s voice. The trouble is, many don’t know how. In a warm and practical way, Jesus Speaks teaches readers how to listen for the voice of Jesus. The bookexplores the various ways in which Christ speaks today and how His sheep can grow in their ability to recognize and respond to His voice daily. By exploring how the disciples interacted with the risen Jesus—from the Gospels to Revelation—Sweet and Viola unpack the myriad of ways the Lord speaks to His people today. They demystify the process, providing practical handles on how you can recognize the voice of Jesus in your own life. In 2009, Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola set out on a journey of discovery. They had one goal: to help restore the supremacy and sovereignty of Jesus Christ above all else. Soon after, they released their national bestseller, Jesus Manifesto. Two years later, they released Jesus: A Theography, beautifully establishing that all Scripture unveils a person—the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus Speaks is the long-awaited third volume in their JESUS trilogy. Read it and be equipped to hear the voice of your Lord. "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Published in 1952, Paul Tillich’s (1886–1965) seminal work The Courage to Be is among his most important writings, and it established his reputation outside of academic theology. In this book, he summarized in concise form the core themes of his overall theology, reformulating the notion of faith as “the courage to be” while also furnishing a re-interpretation of modern society.

Jaron Lanier, der den Begriff der “virtuellen Realität“ erfunden hat, stellt in seinem neuen Buch dar, wie das World Wide Web die Individualität jedes einzelnen von uns bedroht, vermindert oder gar zerstört. Wie kein zweiter hat Jaron Lanier die revolutionären Veränderungen vorausgesagt, die mit dem Internet einhergehen und die alle Aspekte unseres Lebens betreffen: Arbeit und Freizeit, Handel und Wandel, Kommunikation und Sexualität, das kollektive wie das individuelle Leben. Wie kein zweiter warnt er vor den Gefahren des permanenten Online-Seins, vor dem Verlust an Subjektivität in der Anonymität des Netzes. Die eigene Intelligenz und das Urteil des einzelnen von Computeralgorrithmen bedroht. Technologisches Design, das File-Sharing, der Kult ums Facebook, die permanente Erreichbarkeit und oft filterlose Präsentation des Eigenen bedrohen die Kultur des Dialogs, der Eigenheit und Verborgenheit, aus denen die Individualität sich speist. Lanier zeigt die Bedrohungen in vielen Facetten auf und plädiert für einen neuen maßvollen Umgang mit dem Internet. Computer sollen, so sein leidenschaftliches Plädoyer, die Humanität verbessern, nicht ersetzen. Jaron Lanier gilt als Begründer der „virtuelle Realität“ Technologie. Er lehrt als „Scholar at Large for Live Labs, Microsoft Corporation“ in Berkeley, Kalifornien, und ist als Musiker und bildender Künstler international hervorgetreten. Seine Beiträge fanden auch in der deutschen Presse großes Echo. „Ein provozierendes, gewiss kontroverses Buch . . . Leuchtend, kraftvoll, und überzeugend.“ The New York Times „Poetisch und prophetisch . . . das wichtigste Buch des Jahres.“ The Times (London)
