This recovery is benched on salvation and its revelation. One might be saved and still be under yokes except the salvation comes with divine revelation. The light of revelation is what drives the warfare to recover the inheritance. The inheritance is bulky, and a stock-in-trade and only those who have access to the grace of salvation can enjoy same. It is available to anyone who chooses to purchase same. The currency is a capsule of salvation, knowledge and the inheritance passion or claim-drive. The knowledge and the revelation you have through the book “The Reward of the Inheritance” is the propulsion to declare your victory through the prayer actions in this handbook.

    “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint,” Luke 18: 1 (KJV).

    Prayer is hard work, and it requires energy. The revelation the word provides should be a bolster for the claim of the inheritance. This drive produces no result except it is converted in praying for the inheritance. This prayer manual details the prayer demands, though not exhausted, for a chase and recapture of the life of the inheritance as the benefits that fall with the knowledge if the prayers are said as pushed by the Holy Spirit. The experience of the Holy Spirit cannot come to bear on any desirer of the inheritance except that one is saved. Praying is a reliable weapon for the takeover of the lost legacy.

  • Kingdom Nuggets : A Handbook For Christian Living

    $20.99

    The sacrifices that Jesus made in the name of His love for mankind were not confined to the cross. It started from the time He was born and continued in all the days that He lived life as a man; the loneliness of knowing but not being able to share that knowledge, the awareness of what He needs to go through and the ultimate gift of surrendering His life to save us.

In this book, Matthew will show Jesus, Bible verses, and some parables to us in a new light. He will reveal how we can be “Jesus” to other people at the times when they need it most. He will share simple prayers that will open up our hearts in communication with God, to be in His presence, rejoicing and thanking Him for being a part of our life. This book is written like a devotional, where each of the seventy seven nuggets in this book is aimed to help us be a better person, live an enriched life as we walk in God’s grace and fulfill the overpowering need to serve Him in our own way, using the talents that He has given to us. With content that will be simple to mature believers, to content that is very rich, this book will be a delight to both new believers and those who are more advanced.

  • Handbook To Old Testament Exegesis

    $40.00

    Designed for both Hebrew and non-Hebrew students, A Handbook to Old Testament Exegesis offers a fresh, hands-on introduction to exegesis of the Old Testament. William P. Brown begins not with the biblical text itself but with the reader, helping students to identify their own interpretive lenses before engaging the biblical text. Brown guides the student through a wide variety of interpretive approaches, including modern methodologies?feminist, womanist, Latino/a, queer, postcolonial, disability, and ecological approaches?alongside more traditional methods. This allows students to critically reflect on themselves as bona fide interpreters. While covering a wide range of biblical passages, Brown also highlights two common biblical texts throughout the work to help show how each interpretive approach highlights different dimensions of the same texts. Students will appreciate the value of an empathetic inquiry of Scripture that is both inclusive of others and textually in-depth.

  • Disciple Makers Handbook

    $16.99

    Many people believe that discipleship is important, but they need help. In fact, the vast majority of Christians report that they have never been personally discipled by a more mature follower of Jesus. Is it any wonder that they have a difficult time knowing how to disciple others?

    If making disciples of Jesus is the greatest cause on earth, how should we equip people to do it? This handbook is a practical guide for how to embrace the discipleship lifestyle – being a disciple of Jesus and how to make other disciples of Jesus. With contributions from pastors and teachers like Francis Chan, Jeff Vanderstelt, Bill Hull, Jim Putman, KP Yohannan, and Robert Coleman, the authors present seven elements that are necessary for disciple making to occur:
    *Jesus-the original disciple maker and centerpiece of discipleship.
    *Holy Spirit-fuels the disciple-making process.
    *Intentionality-making disciples utilizing a strategy and a roadmap.
    *Relationships-creating a loving, genuine connection with others who trust and follow Jesus.
    *Bible-using the Word of God as the manual for making disciples.
    *Journey-forging a traceable growth story from a new birth to spiritual parenthood.
    *Multiply-reproducing the discipleship process so that the disciple becomes a disciple maker.

    Whether you are a parent who wants to disciple your children, a small group leader who wants to disciple those in your group, or a church leader who wants to disciple future leaders, the seven key elements in this handbook form a framework for understanding discipleship that can be applied in countless situations. In addition, there are questions provided in each section to help you think through how to apply the material to your disciple making efforts.

  • Faith At Home

    $22.95

    Home (not the congregation) and parents (not clergy, youth ministers, or Sunday School) are the key mechanisms by which religious faith and practice are transmitted intergenerationally. Recent studies indicate that the single most important factor in youth becoming committed and engaged in their religious faith as young adults is that the family talks about religion at home. However, for many parents in the United States, religious language is a foreign language. Faith at Home will help parents learn this “second language” and introduce it to their children in simple, meaningful, concrete ways. Parents often ask: How do we introduce prayer to our children if we do not necessarily believe prayer changes outcomes? How do we approach reading the Bible with our children when our own relationship with it is mixed or complicated? How do we talk about difficult things and where do we find God in the midst of them? How do we teach our children to make a difference in the world? How do we connect what happens at church to what happens at home? These questions and many more are addressed with talking points, practices, and resources provided for each subject.

  • Disaster Ministry Handbook

    $27.00

    When disasters happen, people turn to local churches as centers for response and assistance. When floods or tornadoes devastate an area, or when shootings and violence shock a community, knowing what to do can be the difference between calm and chaos, courage and fear, life and death. But few churches plan in advance for what they should do – until the storm hits.

    Don’t get caught unprepared. If a natural disaster or human tragedy strikes your community, your church can minister to the hurting. Jamie Aten and David Boan, codirectors of the Humanitarian Disaster Institute, provide a practical guide for disaster preparedness. Disaster ministry is a critically important work of the church, preparing for the unthinkable, providing relief to survivors, caring for the vulnerable, helping communities recover. Filled with resources for emergency planning and crisis management, this book provides best practices for local congregations. By taking action in advance, your church can help prevent harm and save lives during a disaster.

    The time to plan is now. Be prepared.

  • Episcopal Handbook

    $24.95

    Revised edition of a bestseller

    * Sharpened focus, new sections, expanded glossary

    * Adapted for wider range of uses and settings

    The original Episcopal Handbook, published in 2008, was an instant classic and has
    been a bestseller ever since. Still providing helpful and insightful information about the
    Episcopal ethos with a certain amount of whimsy and complete accessibility, this revision
    maintains the best features of the original work, but adds an update and an expansion on
    the church today.

    In addition to updating out-of-date references, the revision highlights Episcopal
    diversity-including more women and people of color in the biographical material-
    as well as focusing more on Episcopalians rather than Anglicans. Some new illustrations
    are included as well.

    Some material originally presented in tabular form has been adapted into a more
    accessible narrative format. This includes new sections on church governance, the origins
    of religious belief, and a capsule summary of church history. The glossary has also been
    expanded.

    The goal is to provide a book suitable for a wide range of uses and settings: for Sunday
    schools, confirmations, inquirer classes-and for everyone from visitors to vestries. The
    revision brokers an incredible compendium of information in an informal, user-friendly,
    and accessible format.

    For lifelong Episcopalians, newcomers, and those wishing to sample and explore the
    beliefs and organization of the denomination.

  • Faith And Learning

    $22.99

    A rich and practical handbook offering tools for assessing and reporting Christian college faculty members’ faith-learning integration in teaching, research, and service.

    Christian colleges expect new and continuing faculty to articulate clearly an understanding of the impact that Christian faith has on their teaching, research, and service. They also expect their faculty to be able to assess and demonstrate that they are realizing their understanding in their ongoing work as scholars and teachers. Many faculty find this dimension of their work-often labeled the integration of faith and learning-confusing and difficult to assess and describe.

    This volume begins with two useful tools: a working conception of faith/learning integration specifically for Christian college faculty, and an outline of what deans, provosts, and tenure-promotion committees typically expect faculty to know and do.

    Introducing the highly regarded framework of ernest boyer and the Carnegie Foundation (Scholarship Reconsidered, 1990), the book then examines teaching, research, and service, weaving together three conversational threads: boyar’s understanding of what scholarship means in each dimension, models and meanings of faith and learning integration in that dimension, and the expectations of provosts, deans, and tenure-promotion committees in that dimension.

    Finally the book presents a framework for assessing faith/learning integration in the three dimensions of teaching, research, and service and provides step-by-step instructions for reporting and describing the individual faculty member’s approach.

  • Train Up A Child

    $16.49

    TRAIN UP A CHILD is a teacher education textbook for Christian parents engaged in laying the foundation for life and learning during the preschool years. It defines the meaning and purpose for education and provides a curriculum for the parents in developing the necessary educational awareness in all areas of learning. Following are several quotations that highlight the Christian character and Biblical worldview of both the author and the Book.

    You have given birth to a one and only model, with a potential never before registered on earth, and now God also tells you that you are responsible to train up this little one in the way he should go-both for time and for eternity.

    Teaching/Learning should begin in the womb and never cease.

    Learning is (1) the acquisition of knowledge, (2) the structuring of the knowledge processing systems resulting in a proper understanding and use of knowledge, and (3) the structuring of the individual-building what we know as character.

    The way he should go- is the path especially belonging to this child fitted for his individual characteristics.

    A child must be systematically instructed, initiated in the way of life, from the earliest dawn of intelligence.

    First, the parents must be characterized by their supreme love for God. Loving Him as LORD with all their hearts, with all their souls, and with all their might. This is the highest teaching credential for training children in the way they should go.

    If you desire to raise your children to love and obey Jesus Christ then you must give prime attention to instilling a value system within their minds that is truly minted from the gold of heaven-values that have eternal meaning.

    Think of it this way, God is trusting you to work with Him to conform your child into the likeness of Christ. This is the great goal, and reward for faithful parenting.

In 23 years as a beauty consultant, image enhancement technician, entrepreneur and owner of Eleth Beauty Palace, word of mouth has been my sole form of marketing so I have been able to build my business on the customer service principles in this book to create a satisfied, excited, enthusiastic, loyal client base.

    These principles have been instrumental in my success attracting and maintaining clientele. I not only still have the handful of clients that started with me when I moved to Florida in 1994, but more than 80 percent of my current clients have been with me for at least 10 years, which speaks volumes about the experience they have each time they come to the Palace. Our goal is to add value to each person who enters the door; we have been successful in doing so year after year.

    Additionally, I have used the enclosed communication, telephone etiquette, teamwork, cultural sensitivity, character qualities, conflict management and self-development principles to develop, train, empower and prepare young ladies in an internship program, helping them to develop these leadership qualities and a servant’s heart so that they can become successful in their respective fields. The self-esteem, self-confidence and personal growth that come from giving excellent service at all times and being the best you can will cause you to be respected. Also, the value you add to your business, your family, your company, your team and your organization only adds up to profit you in every area of your life, which is true success.

    Appendix B: Resources For Surviving And Thriving With Youth

    Additional Info
    For today’s youth, life is filled with new choices, new decisions, new feelings, new perspectives, and new freedoms. During this time, teens are forming the belief systems that will influence their adult faith, and their ideas about the nature of God, the Bible, and the church. Will teen involvement in church youth programs provide them with a framework for making important choices? Will this time nurture values and encourage their emerging identities to be deeply Christian?

    Something wonderful can happen when you mix teenagers, the Bible, and an enthusiastic teacher together. Many teenagers are hungry to learn about the Bible, what it means, and how it can be applied to their lives. Traditionally, this type of education happens in Sunday School. Unfortunately, too many Youth Sunday School teachers are not prepared or feel inadequate when it comes to teaching teens.
