Abide In Me by Summary

The scriptures of the Christian faith speak of a life qualitatively different from that which we see portrayed on videos, movie screens, and the pages of magazines. The Scriptures proclaim that we can experience the "life of God" here and now. Most of us long for such a life, but have discovered that experiencing this life of God is not simply a matter of following seven specific steps or nine important principles. In this book, Rev. Douglas J. Early reminds us that the way to the fullness of life that God offers us has little to do with our own striving and far more to do with receiving what is already at hand. Using wisdom found in 1 John, Abide In Me serves as a guide to experiencing a life of joy, purpose, and love. Readers are invited to explore the breadth and depth of the life that comes from abiding in the presence of Christ and attending to the Spirit of Christ abiding in each of us. For anyone wanting more in life but tired of working hard and getting nowhere, this book offers hope for experiencing the life of God in Christ, here and now.

Abide with Me by Elizabeth Strout Summary

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • From the Pulitzer Prize–winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Olive Kitteridge comes a “superb” (O: The Oprah Magazine) novel that “confirms Strout as the possessor of an irresistibly companionable, peculiarly American voice.” (The Atlantic Monthly) In the late 1950s, in a small New England town, Reverend Tyler Caskey has suffered a terrible loss and finds it hard to be the person he once was. He struggles to find the right words in his sermons and in his conversations with those facing crises of their own, and to bring his five-year-old daughter, Katherine, out of the silence she has observed in the wake of the family’s tragedy. Tyler’s usually patient and kind congregation now questions his leadership and propriety, and accusations are born out of anger and gossip. Then, in Tyler’s darkest hour, a startling discovery will test his parish’s humanity—and his own will to endure the trials that sooner or later test us all. Praise for Abide With Me “Strout’s greatly anticipated second novel . . . is an answered prayer.”—Vanity Fair “Deeply moving . . . In one beautiful page after another, Strout captures the mysterious combinations of hope and sorrow. She sees all these wounded people with heartbreaking clarity, but she has managed to write a story that cradles them in understanding and that, somehow, seems like a foretaste of salvation.”—The Washington Post “Graceful and moving . . . The pacing of Strout’s deeply felt fiction about the distance between parents and children gives her work an addictive quality.”—People (four stars)

Abide in Me by Dr. Joel N. Trenkle and Doni L. Trenkle Summary

In these days, it appears that evil is triumphant. It seems as though the bad guy is even being rewarded for craftiness. Decisions are no longer based upon biblical or moral principles, but rather on personal benefit and profitability. The effects of these decisions reach to the very core of our society, causing divisions and grief in our families, our relationships, and our jobs. This seems to be especially true in the world we live in today. In Abide in Me, we are taking AIM at the root of this calamity. Abide in Me contains stories about the author’s own life, which left him wondering, “Why me?” The stories demonstrate how a person can turn, or be turned, 180 degrees from the path he was created to walk and find his way back. We have all experienced trials. Perhaps we have made personal or selfish decisions, which seem to have had disastrous effects on ourselves and those around us. At this point in your life, you may even be thinking there is no hope, because of what you have done. Your past does not define you. Hope for your future is possible, but there are necessary steps you must be willing to take. Joel Trenkle has gone from diving in dumpsters to doctor, but not on his own strength. You can find refreshing new meaning and purpose for your life in this book.

Abide in Me by Chris Slaughter Summary

In the midst of tough times, why do lifelong Christians flee from God while non-believers run towards Him? When those seeking God for the first time step into a church, will they find others who suffer, question, and doubt or will they be met by a congregation of perfect Christians? In a collection of thoughts captured after his six year old daughter’s affliction with two serious diseases over the span of three years, Abide in Me follows a less than perfect struggle by a less than perfect believer. There are periods of doubt, moments of rage, and the nature of the God he thought he knew is called into question. In the end, will he reject his faith due to his little girl’s suffering or will he heed God’s call when He says, Abide in Me.

Abide in Christ by Andrew Murray,General Press Summary

In this timeless classic, first published in 1895, Dutch Reformed Pastor Andrew Murray explores scripture and the life of Christ in order to teach how to live daily in closer communion and companionship with him. Andrew Murray wrote this series of meditations to unravel the secrets of going beyond following, and into abiding in the Vine so the faith can always be fresh and ever growing. He urges readers to surrender themselves to Jesus, in order that they may know the rich and full experience of the sacredness of abiding in Christ. This word ‘abide’ speaks of the intimacy of fellowship to which his followers are still invited. The author explains out of conviction that many believers are missing out on something that is really at the heart of a healthy Christian life, although they trust the Lord for forgiveness and help, they are yet to experience the blessing of a day by day walk with Christ. He shows how, by taking the time to live closer to Jesus, one can move into a deeper and stronger Christian experience.

Abide by Heather Khym Summary

In this personal healing retreat from Heather Khym, cohost of the popular Abiding Together podcast, you are invited to break through the barriers that prevent you from trusting and experiencing the deep love of Jesus and be transformed by the freedom that comes when we vulnerably bring our entire selves to the foot of the Cross. Rooted in the teaching of Khym’s Vancouver-based ministry, Life Restoration, Abide shares scripture, essential Catholic teaching, and the author’s personal healing journey to reintroduce you to God as the Divine Healer, Restorer, and Miracle Worker. Khym offers you a compass to navigate your past as you dig into difficult memories that have disoriented your understanding of God and made you afraid to trust him. She challenges you to cast off your self-protective tendencies and to recognize your need for healing so you can be the person you were created to be. Jesus says, “Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit because apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:4–5). We are meant to abide in Jesus, to unite ourselves to him. Yet over the course of our lives, we experience brokenness and loss, which lead us to doubt God’s presence. Khym challenges you to step outside your comfort zone so that you can authentically: recognize God as a loving father who desires your happiness; practice spiritual and emotional vulnerability with Jesus; invite the Divine Healer into your past and relationships; acknowledge that you have an enemy who battles for your heart; and overcome false beliefs about God and learn to trust Jesus as a compelling, captivating, and trustworthy lover of your soul. Each chapter includes practical reflection-based exercises that help you recall troublesome memories, identify the roots of your feelings, and meditate on excerpts from scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. You’ll come away with a renewed hope in the power of God to bring freedom to your fearful heart as you start to live a life restored in Christ, one that begins with and is sustained by an intimate relationship with Jesus.

Abide in Jesus by James Tarter Summary

Most believers in Jesus have heard that we should abide in Jesus: to stay in Him, a command in John 15 and 1John. But John’s whole Gospel and all of 1John show a meaning of this command that is rarely seen fully in English, and is too rarely put into full practice in our lives. God calls His children to abide in Jesus, a life and ministry amazingly like what Jesus lived on earth. Staying in Jesus is a vital theme of both John’s Gospel and 1John. Our not realizing this theme has greatly weakened our personal and corporate life and growth in God on earth. A simple issue has caused so few believers to see this vital theme in John’s books: an assumed way to partly translate a Greek word ina about 25 of his 213 ina’s. In this book we can see that fully translating ina shows God’s revelation of sources of vital outcomes connected by the conjunction ina, and shows why most of us have not fully moved into them. Part 2 of this book shows every ina by John, and his use of ina shows a telos concept extended beyond purpose to fit all 213 ina's.

Abide in the Secret Place by Andrew Murray Summary

Jesus said, “When thou prayest, enter into thine inner chamber, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret.” (See Matthew 6:6 RV.) This means two things. First, shut the world out, and withdraw from all worldly thoughts and activities. Second, shut yourself in alone with God, to pray to Him in secret. Let this be your chief aim in prayer: to realize the presence of your heavenly Father. Let your watchword be, “Alone with God.” —Andrew Murray From time spent alone in prayer, Andrew Murray discovered that every Christian can expect God to reveal Himself in intimate, powerful, and soul-restoring ways. In this collection of 120 daily devotions, Murray reveals spiritual gems of truth about the personal revelation we can access when we abide with Christ in our secret prayer spaces. Through those intimate hours spent with your Savior, you will experience the depths of God’s abiding presence, the joyful sense of peace that comes from fellowship with our heavenly Father, and the abundant life in Christ that is available to all who seek it. You will discover that God has already granted you everything you will ever need, and that He delights in saying “yes” to you!

Seven Ways to Abide in Christ by Lin Wills Summary

Abiding is active. We actively draw life from the Vine, Jesus, as we abide in Him. We believe, we trust, we are closely connected. We are attached and grafted into the Vine in deep connection. We are positioned to receive all we can from the Vine. We receive the life-giving sap from the Vine. We draw from the Vine all that we need. It is our connection to the Vine that brings forth fruit – we cannot do it with self effort! David in one of his Psalms writes that God says, “Come and talk with Me.” And his heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.” How does our heart respond? Is it, “Later, when I'm not so busy? When I have more time?” We will never have more time. We have to make time. And we will, if it’s what we really want. Best time, not leftovers. Not when we are half asleep! We will be abiding and dwelling as close to God as we desire and discipline ourselves to be.

Licensed to Kill by Brian G. Hedges Summary

The Christian life is not a playground, but a battleground. One of the fiercest foes in this battle dwells within our own hearts: the enemy of indwelling sin. The Scriptures command us to "put sin to death." This is what pastors and theologians of another generation called the "mortification" of sin. But how do we mortify sin? And what role does the gospel play in this effort to apply lethal force against sin? How can we avoid falling into legalism while still maintaining a passion for holiness? And what kinds of strategies actually work in the daily battle? These are questions I have personally wrestled with as both a Christian and a pastor. This book is my attempt to answer those questions and provide a biblical and practical guide for the war against sin.

Abide by A. P. Rowley Summary

So, your sitting there, on the journey of life. Stuck. Again. Sure, it’s convenient, easy, comfortable. But where is the passion, excitement, and adventure you thought you might find with God? Where is the freedom, the love, and the support through good times and bad? Often, these are the most frustrating questions in our lives. The questions that no one seems to have an answer for and at the same time rarely get asked. The ones that are just bad enough for us to know something is deeply wrong but not great enough to provide a reason to break out of our comfort zones. So, what do we do? Abide seeks to answer these questions along with practical advice to help those who are struggling in a much darker arena as well as support those who have already found their passion in Christ. Using biblically backed evidence and life experience this book seeks to provide practical answers to questions that remain ignored far to often either by ourselves or by others.

Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout Summary

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE • THE EMMY AWARD–WINNING HBO MINISERIES STARRING FRANCES MCDORMAND, RICHARD JENKINS, AND BILL MURRAY In a voice more powerful and compassionate than ever before, New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Strout binds together thirteen rich, luminous narratives into a book with the heft of a novel, through the presence of one larger-than-life, unforgettable character: Olive Kitteridge. At the edge of the continent, Crosby, Maine, may seem like nowhere, but seen through this brilliant writer’s eyes, it’s in essence the whole world, and the lives that are lived there are filled with all of the grand human drama–desire, despair, jealousy, hope, and love. At times stern, at other times patient, at times perceptive, at other times in sad denial, Olive Kitteridge, a retired schoolteacher, deplores the changes in her little town and in the world at large, but she doesn’t always recognize the changes in those around her: a lounge musician haunted by a past romance: a former student who has lost the will to live: Olive’s own adult child, who feels tyrannized by her irrational sensitivities; and Henry, who finds his loyalty to his marriage both a blessing and a curse. As the townspeople grapple with their problems, mild and dire, Olive is brought to a deeper understanding of herself and her life–sometimes painfully, but always with ruthless honesty. Olive Kitteridge offers profound insights into the human condition–its conflicts, its tragedies and joys, and the endurance it requires. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR BY People • USA Today • The Atlantic • The Washington Post Book World • Seattle Post-Intelligencer • Entertainment Weekly • The Christian Science Monitor • San Francisco Chronicle • Salon • San Antonio Express-News • Chicago Tribune • The Wall Street Journal “Perceptive, deeply empathetic . . .

The three Long sisters of Welleswood, New Jersey, felt they could handle any problem, any crisis together… But suddenly, each was facing the most critical challenge of her life. Andrea, a single mom, was in a fight for survival, against cancer. Madge, who'd once lived a storybook life, needed to find forgiveness—if she ever could—for a husband who'd kept a shocking secret for years. Jenny, pregnant with her third child, longed to keep her husband's dream alive, whatever the sacrifice. To get through it all, they would have to lean on one another as never before, trusting that their love and hope—and their faith, no matter how far it was tested—would see them through.

Gospel of Glory by Richard Bauckham Summary

Throughout Christian history, the Gospel of John's distinctive way of presenting the life, works, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus have earned it labels such as "the spiritual Gospel" and "the maverick Gospel." It has been seen as the most theological of the four canonical Gospels. In this volume Richard Bauckham, a leading biblical scholar and a bestselling author in the academy, illuminates main theological themes of the Gospel of John. Bauckham provides insightful analysis of key texts, covering topics such as divine and human community, God's glory, the cross and the resurrection, and the sacraments. This work will serve as an ideal supplemental text for professors and students in a course on John or the four Gospels. It will also be of interest to New Testament scholars and theologians.

Sample Scripture John 15 1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit, he taketh it away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he cleanseth it, that it may bear more fruit. 3 Already ye are clean because of the word which I have spoken unto you. 4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; so neither can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for apart from me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatsoever ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; and so shall ye be my disciples. 9 Even as the Father hath loved me, I also have loved you: abide ye in my love. 10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. 11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.

The Shadow of Death by Jane Willan Summary

Perfect for fans of G. M. Malliet and M. C. Beaton, The Shadow of Death is divine entertainment from a talented debut writer. A charming and clever traditional mystery debut set at a bucolic Welsh convent, The Shadow of Death introduces Sister Agatha, a mystery-loving nun who finds herself in the midst of a real-life murder case. The sisters of Gwenafwy Abbey have cherished their contemplative life—days spent in prayer, reflection, tending the Convent’s vegetable gardens and making their award-winning organic cheese, Heavenly Gouda. Life seems perfect, except for Sister Agatha, a die-hard mystery fan who despairs of ever finding any real life inspiration for her own novel. That is, until the Abbey’s sexton is found dead under an avalanche of gouda. Despite the reservations of the local constable, Sister Agatha is convinced it’s murder and the game is afoot. Armed only with the notes she’s scribbled during her favorite podcast, How to Write a Mystery Novel, as well as a lessons learned from crime heroes ranging from Hercule Poirot to Stephanie Plum, Sister Agatha leads the nuns of Gwenafwy Abbey (and her unwitting sidekick, Father Selwyn) as they begin a race against time to resolve the death of Jacob, save the Abbey, exonerate a beloved postulant, and restore the good name of their cheese.

The BE Attitudes for Christians by Mary Ruth Whitley Summary

The Be Attitudes for Christians has thirty-two Christian 'attitudes' that can be applied to many different situations in our lives, beginning with BE BLESSED and ending with BE PREPARED. This is a devotional, a resource, and could easily be used for research. Studying biblical end-times and prophecy has actually given me peace of mind about our world. Jesus laid God's plan out for his disciples and revealed to John some prophetic events that will take place in the future. There is no date given for God's final plan to occur, but it will come to pass like all other prior prophecies described in the Bible. God's message is available for anyone who wants to peruse it, meditate on it, study it, be prepared and be blessed by it. As a devotional, prior to an election, I created a "Forty Day Fast and Prayer" for Christians. After sharing it with a woman, she urged me to write more devotions using the same process and style. That daily devotion was simply an Attitude, a Thought, and some Scriptures. After several years of writing and praying about this, I chose the acronym-AIM. A is the "attitude," I stands for the "instruction," and M is the relevant Scripture for memory or meditation. All the Be Attitudes are developed around Scripture and allow the reader to be in God's Word. By choice, the meditation can be long or short. When we AIM to let the Word of God move us, then His purpose will be accomplished.

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist by Brant Pitre Summary

A revelatory exploration of the Jewish roots of the Last Supper that seeks to understand exactly what happened at Jesus’ final Passover. “Clear, profound and practical—you do not want to miss this book.”—Dr. Scott Hahn, author of The Lamb’s Supper and The Fourth Cup Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist shines fresh light on the Last Supper by looking at it through Jewish eyes. Using his in-depth knowledge of the Bible and ancient Judaism, Dr. Brant Pitre answers questions such as: What was the Passover like at the time of Jesus? What were the Jewish hopes for the Messiah? What was Jesus’ purpose in instituting the Eucharist during the feast of Passover? And, most important of all, what did Jesus mean when he said, “This is my body… This is my blood”? To answer these questions, Pitre explores ancient Jewish beliefs about the Passover of the Messiah, the miraculous Manna from heaven, and the mysterious Bread of the Presence. As he shows, these three keys—the Passover, the Manna, and the Bread of the Presence—have the power to unlock the original meaning of the Eucharistic words of Jesus. Along the way, Pitre also explains how Jesus united the Last Supper to his death on Good Friday and his Resurrection on Easter Sunday. Inspiring and informative, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist is a groundbreaking work that is sure to illuminate one of the greatest mysteries of the Christian faith: the mystery of Jesus’ presence in “the breaking of the bread.”

Abide and Go by Michael J. Gorman Summary

The Gospel of John would seem to be both the “spiritual Gospel” and a Gospel that promotes Christian mission. Some interpreters, however, have found John to be the product of a sectarian community that promotes a very narrow view of Christian mission and advocates neither love of neighbor nor love of enemy. In this book for both the academy and the church, Michael Gorman argues that John has a profound spirituality that is robustly missional, and that it can be summarized in the paradoxical phrase “Abide and go,” from John 15. Disciples participate in the divine love and life, and therefore in the life-giving mission of God manifested in the ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus. As God’s children, disciples become more and more like this missional God as they become like his Son by the work of the Spirit. This spirituality, argues Gorman, can be called missional theosis.

Becoming a Disciple by Daniel Bourguet Summary

In this little book Daniel Bourguet guides our meditations on three scriptural passages that lead the reader along the pathway ordained by Christ into the depths of his being. Successively, the disciple first follows behind Jesus along the way of perfect love (Mark 1:14-20); then experiences what it is to bear the yoke with Christ and there find rest (Matt 11:28-30); and finally enters the mystery of communion in which he is in Jesus and Jesus abides in him (John 15:1-17). It is a pathway passing from vocation to struggle and then to fellowship, but leading always to joy.

In The God of Evolution, Denis Edwards tackles hard questions about the relationship between contemporary science and Christian faith. By examining traditional Christian concepts through the prism of evolutionary thought, Edwards opens up new ways of thinking about the nature of God and the universe."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Pursuit of the Holy by Simon Ponsonby Summary

“Be holy as I am holy,” says the Lord. It's the most extravagant—and audacious—invitation ever sent: Or in the words of Jesus: “Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.” But can that really happen? Is holiness an achievable goal for sinful human beings? That's the ultimate focus of this thoughtful, thorough, and engaging study of what it means to be holy. Drawing on the Bible and Christian thinkers through the ages, Simon Ponsonby affirms that because of God's gracious love and desire for communion with us, he has done what is possible for us not only to pursue holiness, but to achieve it. While we can never count on attaining moral perfection in this life, we need not settle for less than increasing victory over sin. And as more and more Christians choose to partner with God in the ongoing process of sanctification, we set the stage for revival.
