God's love and grace have always gone before His demands. And it is that grace that transforms hearts into the father, husband, friend and leader that God desires men to be. Ignoring the trend to reduce Christian manhood to a string of methods and lists, Dan Doriani instead explores the nature of God. With a truth-telling approach that will challenge men as they delve into Scripture, Doriani brings the message home: the Christian life is not about following a how-to list; it's about following the Savior who's already accomplished it all.

Do you believe that science has all the answers to the mysteries of life and the origin of the universe? If you're convinced that life is an accident and occurred spontaneously and that evolution is the key to understanding the beginning of all living things, this book will help you distinguish between opinion and fact. The mysteries of the universe, the solar system, the earth, and all living matter are made clear in either science or scripture. When one removes the philosophies of men and accepts only what is proven or revealed through scripture, the picture is as clear as the sun at noonday. Events happen for a reason, and nothing appears spontaneously without a cause. The journey through time and space, armed with revealed truths and true science reveals the eternal nature of matter and intelligence. The universe is a magnificent display of engineering, design, laws, and organization. Science has proven that life comes from life and in no other way; the anthropological record is a dismal failure in showing connectivity and succession between living organisms. Other than showing that life is interrelated, there is no transitional evidence that connects the various forms of life. The DNA markers show no connection between the apes that walked upright and ma-Adam. Man is the crowning jewel of the creation, displaying God-like qualities in physical, mental, and spiritual attributes. Then how did all that we observe today arise? Did the universe expand from something smaller than an atom and grow into everything that we see? Were Adam and Eve our first ancestors, or did they evolve from lower life forms? Was there a plan that was designed and executed by a Master Creator, or is everything we see and experience the result of random chance? The original spark of life that led to all life on planet Earth came from somewhere. The evidence for why man exists is answered in the scriptures. When opinions are set aside, the facts speak for themselves: Life could not have evolved the way Darwin hypothesized. If man created God, He is a mere idea and the winners in life are the philosophers. If God made man, his existence should be pursued with all the intensity of one's capability. In the Beginning is an in-depth exploration of these age-old mysteries and questions, and provides answers from logical reasoning and factual evidence.

Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.

Dr. David Comings, an internationally renowned physician, human geneticist and neuroscientist, proposes that spirituality is genetically hardwired into a specific part of the brain, is pleasurable, is critical to the evolution and survival of man, and will never go away. It strives to allow readers to develop a rational spirituality in which the fact-based rational brain and the faith-based spiritual brain can live in peace. In an era when politicians are judged on the basis of the strength of their belief in God, when schools are urged to teach Intelligent Design, and when religious terrorists threaten the existence of Western civilization it is critical to dispassionately examine the question - Did man create God? A wide range of issues are examined including intelligent answers to intelligent design; the relevance of modern cosmology to the existence or non-existence of god; the role of genes in spirituality; innate morality, the problem of evil, and many others. Michael Shermer called this the most detailed and up-to-date science ever generated on the subject of religion and suggested it will be the definitive scientific reference on religion for some time to come. This book is for those who have also questioned any part of their faith but treasure their spirituality and want answers that are not hostile to spirituality or religion.
