  • Thanksgiving : The Holiday At The Heart Of The American Experience

    $29.99

    We all know the story of Thanksgiving. Or do we? This uniquely American holiday has a rich and little known history beyond the famous feast of 1621.

    In Thanksgiving, award-winning author Melanie Kirkpatrick journeys through four centuries of history, giving us a vivid portrait of our nation’s best-loved holiday. Drawing on newspaper accounts, private correspondence, historical documents, and cookbooks, Thanksgiving brings to life the full history of the holiday and what it has meant to generations of Americans.

    Many famous figures walk these pages–Washington, who proclaimed our first Thanksgiving as a nation amid controversy about his Constitutional power to do so; Lincoln, who wanted to heal a divided nation sick of war when he called for all Americans–North and South–to mark a Thanksgiving Day; FDR, who set off a debate on state’s rights when he changed the traditional date of Thanksgiving.

    Ordinary Americans also play key roles in the Thanksgiving story–the New England Indians who boycott Thanksgiving as a Day of Mourning; Sarah Josepha Hale, the nineteenth-century editor and feminist who successfully campaigned for Thanksgiving to be a national holiday; the 92nd Street Y in New York City, which founded Giving Tuesday, an online charity established in the long tradition of Thanksgiving generosity. Kirkpatrick also examines the history of Thanksgiving football and, of course, Thanksgiving dinner.

    While the rites and rituals of the holiday have evolved over the centuries, its essence remains the same: family and friends feasting together in a spirit of gratitude to God, neighborliness, and hospitality. Thanksgiving is Americans’ oldest tradition. Kirkpatrick’s enlightening exploration offers a fascinating look at the meaning of the holiday that we gather together to celebrate on the fourth Thursday of November.

    With Readings for Thanksgiving Day designed to be read aloud around the table.

  • Happy Thanksgiving Snoopy

    $4.99

    Give thanks with Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts gang in this 8×8 storybook all about Thanksgiving!

    Thanksgiving is not working out the way Charlie Brown expected this year. His Grandma had to cancel dinner and now he’s stuck at home. For Snoopy, it’s shaping up to be a pretty typical Turkey Day: He has no plans, and no one has invited him anywhere. He’s just going to play it ‘Joe Cool’ and pretend he’s not lonely. Luckily, Charlie Brown and friends realize that if they want any kind of Thanksgiving celebration they’re going to have to throw it themselves…at Joe Cool’s ‘dorm!’ It’s a nontraditional Thanksgiving, spent with people they weren’t expecting to hang out with, but it’s one they’ll always be thankful for. After all, Thanksgiving is not really about what or where you eat, but about who you get to spend time with!

  • Choosing Gratitude : Learning To Love The Life You Have

    $15.00

    In his latest book, Choosing Gratitude: Learning to Love the Life You Have, renowned author James A. Autry reminds us that gratitude is a choice, a spiritual-not social-process. Made evident as behavior, gratitude is not the behavior itself. We may automatically respond, “Thank you” or “Appreciate it” in the daily course of our lives. These are polite, conditioned responses, but they are not gratitude. Instead, gratitude is a way of life, a belief system, that means cultivating a spirit of thankfulness even through the negatives of life. It is remembering there will always be more reasons for gratitude than for despair.

    In a society consumed by fears of not having “enough”-money, possessions, security, and so on-Autry suggests that if we cultivate gratitude as a way of being, we may not change the world and its ills, but we can change our response to the world. If we fill our lives with moments of gratitude, we will indeed love the life we have.

  • Squanto And The Miracle Of Thanksgiving

    $6.99

    Experience the true story from American history about the spiritual roots and historical beginnings of Thanksgiving.

    This entertaining and historical story shows that the actual hero of Thanksgiving was neither white nor Indian but God. In 1608, English traders came to Massachusetts and captured a twelve-year-old Indian, Squanto, and sold him into slavery. He was raised by Christians and taught faith in God. Ten years later he was sent home to America. Upon arrival, he learned an epidemic had wiped out his entire village. But God had plans for Squanto. God delivered a Thanksgiving miracle: an English-speaking Indian living in the exact place where the Pilgrims landed in a strange new world.

  • Heretics : The Other Side Of Early Christianity

    $35.00

    According to the official view, held for almost two thousand years, early Christianity was marked by great harmony, and heresy only emerged at a later stage. This book, written in nontechnical language for interested non-theologians, argues that such a picture is wishful thinking.
    Using all available sources, including newly-discovered Gnostic texts, Professor Luedemann argues that in many areas, ‘heresy’ in fact preceded ‘orthodoxy’ and was later forcibly replaced by it. The controversies shed an interesting light on the human character and concerns of the first Christians, who were occupied not only with right belief but also with power. The first chapter investigates the positions of Christians in Jerusalem in the first two centuries, since they were the ones who in fact introduced the concept of heresy into the church, and pays particular attention to the revision of the portrait of Paul and his theology. Then it goes on to the dramatic events around Marcion and his approach to a scriptural canon. Thirdly, it examines the conflicts underlying the Johannine writings, the formation of the Apostles’ Creed and the formation of the New Testament canon.
    Professor Luedemann argues that his findings have important and liberating consequences for the understanding of both Christianity and the Bible.

  • Safeguarded By Glory

    $80.00

    Michael Ramsey was perhaps the most respected articulator of Anglicanism for the twentieth century. Central to Ramsey’s approach to theology was the gospel of Jesus’ life, death, burial, and resurrection. For Ramsey this gospel revealed the very nature and glory of God. Furthermore, Ramsey believed that it influenced Christian theology at every level, from theological reflection to institutional structures. It creates a picture of a church that seeks to continue the ministry of Christ in healing a broken world, believing that the glory of Christ transforms the very nature of suffering so that it also becomes an avenue of redemption. In the last 50 years, the Anglican Communion has seen profound changes to its global polity alongside of shifts in practice and ethical beliefs in many of its provinces. These changes have been used on all sides of the debate as wedges to further disassociate the factions with one another. Ramsey’s doctrine of the church, shaped by the Gospel of Christ, offers a different lens through which these changes may be viewed and critiqued. Most importantly, it suggests that the glory of God in Christ still safeguards the church.

  • Pathway Into The Holy Of Holies

    $13.49

    This book is the first in a series of fifteen written to assist each reader to enter further into the realm of a divine relationship with our Heavenly Father, led by our Lover, Christ Jesus. In this relationship the reader is perfumed and saturated with anointment through the Holy Ghost. A separate book defining each synonym is written specifically to induce greater awareness for those desiring to enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise, and then into the Holy of Holies. “Some books come out of the head and others come out of the heart, but this book has obviously come out of a life. It has been lived; that is why it comes alive. Joy does not merely exhort us to praise-she exemplifies praise from the Scriptures with a uniqueness and honesty that carries the reader deeper and deeper into the book. It is fresh, revealing, abundantly illustrated, and carefully researched and charted, and should be a rich source of teaching material as well as a road map for those who desire to walk out of carnal living into a life of praise.” E. Judson Cornwell Renowned Author and Conference Speaker

  • Turning Griping Into Gratitude

    $20.95

    Ron Lavin provides an ideal resource for small groups who want to explore the Psalms, or for preachers who want to present an inspirational series of sermons. Discussion questions are provided at the end of each chapter, as well as a guide for leaders.

    Says Lavin: “Griping is one of the most insidious and divisive things into which we easily fall, while gratitude is the most productive of attitudes. The Psalms are filled with the battle between griping and gratitude, a battle we all fight. The psalmists knew both attitudes, including the self-defeating nature of griping and the wonder and majesty of gratitude.”
