In this powerful new Zondervan book releasing March 2008, Chuck Colson and Harold Fickett identify the unshakable tenets of the faith that Christians have believed through the centuries—truths that offer a ground for faith in uncertain times, hope and joy for those who despair, and reconciliation for a world at war with God and itself.

The Southern covered The Bible Experience this past week with an article titled "Celebrity voices power a new 78-CD Bible." You can read the entire article at this link. Quotes from the article include:
"’This turned into something far bigger than the original version," said Paul Caminiti of Zondervan, which published and is distributing "Inspired By … The Bible Experience."
Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas, supports the project. "I think it’s a quality presentation of God’s word, and I’m for anything that makes God’s word more accessible to the public," said Dr. Jeffress, who was recently named pastor of the church, long a bulwark of conservative theology. "Paul said, ‘Faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of God.’"I think the ‘Bible Experience’ reminds us that the Bible was poured through the lives and personalities of individuals, and helps bring those words to life.’"

In the Hebrew scriptures there is no word for "spiritual." And Jesus never used the phrase "spiritual life." Why? Because for Jesus and his tradition, all of life is spiritual. But what does that really mean?

Dr. J.P. Moreland speaks about his book Kingdom Triangle at National Pastor’s Convention 2007. Kingdom Triangle is a penetrating analysis and critique of Western society’s dominant worldviews, naturalism and postmodernism, which have also influenced the church. Moreland issues a bold call to reclaim powerful kingdom living and influence through recovery of the Christian mind, renovation of Christian spirituality, and restoration of the Holy Spirit’s power.
