Leben als "christlicher Genießer"
Author: John Piper
Including: The Glossary of Christianese
Author: James Alwyn Austin
Publisher: WestBow Press
Category: Family & Relationships
Every group is a medley of unique individuals that share a common interest. As the group forms, meets, practices, and develops their identity and skills, certain words (like nicknames) are made up, that allow for the common identiﬁcation of certain things that are important to the group. As a result, a group-speciﬁc jargon is developed.
In, for example, a surfing group, learning “Surferese” becomes part of the initiation process. Mastering the group-specific jargon provides the newer member a feeling of accomplishment and pride. When outsiders overhear you, they may now be able to identify you as “one of those Surfers.” Being identiﬁed provides you with confirmation that your efforts have not been in vain.
But Christianity is not a hobby or a club. Your eternal destiny is changed for the better by joining and continuing. For this reason, at this critical juncture, no new believer in Christ should be driven away or alienated by some human-made jargon. So, in A Handbook for New Christian Believers: Including the Glossary of Christianese,, the new believer is supplied with a listing of most of the jargon words and their detailed deﬁnitions.
This may be the ﬁrst time such a listing with deﬁnitions has been provided, so please take advantage and familiarize yourself with this handbook and the glossary. You will acquire the knowledge you need to quickly enable and ease the process of (1) getting to know your God and Savior, Jesus Christ, and (2) ﬁtting in with the members of your church.

"Walk with Me" is an autobiography of author Mark Lynch's life, filled with many of his extraordinary experiences, struggles, tragedies, and blessings. Mark is no stranger to death, and he reveals what happened in two near-death experiences and his visit to paradise in the afterlife.

This book offers hope for those facing their own heartaches. The reality of life is but a fading illusion. Every second of every day brings us closer to our death. The circumstances and people that enter our lives shape and mold us into who we are to become. There is a reason you are alive here on Earth. We are all not here by accident. There is also more to coincidences than you may realize. Whether you choose to believe it or not, you are here for a purpose. There is a reason for everything that happens in life, even when things do not seem to make sense. Walk with me, and I will touch your emotions as I reveal my inner self and take you through my life. My life is of an ordinary man who has survived despite extraordinary circumstances. There is life beyond death, as I have been there... twice. So let me show you the truth. Walk with me as I reveal the keys to a world you may never have known existed. Let me you show the truth, reveal the lies, and expose the myths.

The Civil War Revival and Its Pentecostal Progeny (1967-2006)
Author: Richard Burgess
Nigeria has become the area of one of the most remarkable religious movements of recent times, reflecting the shift in the global center of Christianity from the North to the South. This book tells the story of one sector of this movement from its roots in the Nigerian civil war to the turn of the new millennium. It describes a revival that occurred among the Igbo people of Eastern Nigeria, and the new Pentecostal churches it generated, and documents the changes that have occurred as the movement has responded to global flows and local demands. As such, it explores the nature of revivalist and Pentecostal experience, but does so against the backdrop of local socio-political and economic developments, such as decolonization and civil war, as well broader processes, such as modernization and globalization.
