Bookwi.se Note: This is an anthology of stories that were inspired by bible stories but re-written as horror or thriller stories. These are not ‘Christian’ re-tellings.

A prophet washes up on the shores of an hellish city. A doomed king speaks to the dead. A modern day Samson takes up arms against the British. These nine stories are full of drama, passion and divine exuberance.

A stunning and deep interpretation of the Lord’s Prayer as it has been translated from Aramaic, the language Jesus spoke.
Aramaic is more poetic and mystical than the Greek language. It invites listeners to explore the meaning of words at the levels of body, mind, and spirit. Thus, every phrase in the prayer contains several possible meanings.
Using translations from Aramaic scholars, the author explains new interpretations of God’s will, forgiveness, temptation, evil. You will come away with a new appreciation for the teachings that lie beneath the surface of the Lord’s Prayer’s traditional and beloved words.

What must we do to bear spiritual fruit? Pastors, churches and individual Christians are constantly searching for the right strategies for success in their ministries. Yet our production-driven culture has led us to ask the wrong question. The Bible repeatedly points us back to a deeper issue: who must I be? Contradiction, hypocrisy and neglect of our hidden lives too often choke off any fruit God would bring forth. The flesh compels us to work to bear fruit. But just the opposite is true: it is our works that make us barren. We so easily compartmentalize and isolate inconsistencies in our hidden lives and think that we can still move forward in God’s service. As a result, much of what we “do” for God is unnecessary, unproductive and unfruitful. For God brings forth His fruit not in those who do, but in those who are.

Fear manifests itself in many forms. At its mildest, it appears as just a mild form of uneasy or discomfort, a feeling that something is not quite right. At its worse, fear can kill. Fear is a lifelong battle, but God is our lifelong Protector. He promised to never abandon or forsake us. When we are secure in his love and salvation, nothing can snatch us from him, not even death. By holding tightly to God, no matter what, we will make it through, in spite of our fear. May God bless you and deliver you from the stronghold of fear. In him you are free indeed and the chains that have had you bound are broken.

Many Australian Christians have experienced renewal in the Holy Spirit. Yet it would be true to say that those church members enthusiastic about renewal are often a small group within a parish, frustrated because the parish, in its overall life and direction, does not seem to be renewed.
The Joint Board of Christian Education has produced a book of eight studies on the Holy Spirit and the Christian life called Living in the Spirit. The author is Geoff Waugh, Director of Distance Education at the U.C.A.’s Trinity Theological College in Brisbane.
The assumption is that each study will take two hours, but the suggestion is made in the excellent guidelines at the beginning of the book that the course may be spread over sixteen sessions with only half the material in each chapter being attempted at each study session.

We live in interesting times, where anything can and does happen. People all around the world believe in UFOs and life on other planets. It’s no surprise to hear someone say they believe in ghosts. Others talk of demons. Common beliefs range anywhere from Santa Claus to reincarnation. Most people believe in God, and a large number of people believe in Jesus (as do I). Many people have experienced at least one miracle in their lifetime, but hesitate to tell anyone about it. People are reluctant to believe in miracles.
This book is about a wealthy, middle-aged white man who goes to church and becomes a Christian. God takes him from his normal life in America and sends him to Africa. Jim’s experience in Africa is full of dreams, visions, and miracles. Jim falls in love and life is never the same from then on.
Anyone who likes to read about clouds rolling in like waves across the ocean will love this book. Added to their reading pleasure is lightning and thunder. People who want to read about windows to heaven and beams of light will be delighted. Miracles are exposed throughout the book. If a clean, wholesome love story is what you seek, you won’t be disappointed.
The book starts out in a small community south of Dallas, Texas, but most of the story happens in Africa.
