Isaiah 55: 8 (KJV) How many times have you encountered difficult events or situations, shaken your head and whispered, "God just doesn't make sense"? On the surface, it certainly seems that way. He is a peculiar God, odd in many ways. But when we dig deeper, we also find a sinless and exhilarating God. From the days of Abel through today He baffles us, teaches us, and amazes us with real life lessons from real life people. The Christian life is an adventure - and God is anything but boring. Gaining his formal and spiritual education first from Liberty University and later from Liberty Theological Seminary, Ed Meshler is a native North Carolinian, Robin's husband, Sam and Ginger's dad, a Bible teacher, a writer, a reader, and a bit of a ragamuffin. Family, friends, books, music, art, sports, youth camps, and the love of Trinity God fill the rest of his time. Well, all that and an ever handy bottle of cold and refreshing sparkling water. www.edmeshler.com
Download and read online How Odd of God in PDF and EPUB Election is a strange word when used in theology. It brings to mind old debates about what God might or might not have done before the foundation of the world. But viewed apart from that historical baggage, the word election is about a central gospel idea: that in Jesus not only does God choose to be God for us but chooses us to be for God. The calling of the disciples in the gospels is a story of election, of how God chooses to transform the world by choosing us to be messengers and agents of that transformation. So it is, says William Willimon, that election becomes not just the content of our preaching but the means as well. God chooses preachers. How unlikely—how odd—is it that God should entrust the proclamation of the gospel to, well, us? This unpredictable, electing God reaches out to save the world and then leaves it in the hands of preachers to get the word out? Through us, through our stammering tongues and faltering hearts, the preached word becomes the Word of God. If you wonder why you drag yourself into the pulpit every Sunday, if you worry that your sermons aren't reaching past the front pew, then read this book and be encouraged. God chooses; God chooses preachers; God chooses you.

Download and read online There Is No God and He Is Always with You in PDF and EPUB Can you be an atheist and still believe in God? Can you be a true believer and still doubt? Can Zen give us a way past our constant fighting about God? Brad Warner was initially interested in Buddhism because he wanted to find God, but Buddhism is usually thought of as godless. In the three decades since Warner began studying Zen, he has grappled with paradoxical questions about God and managed to come up with some answers. In this fascinating search for a way beyond the usual arguments between fundamentalists and skeptics, Warner offers a profoundly engaging and idiosyncratic take on the ineffable power of the “ground of all being.”
