Who Is This Who Is Coming? (p) By Robert Laynton
Paperback: $27.57
Prints in 3-5 business days
Christianity and Judaism differ concerning the Messiah – the one chosen and set apart by God to be the deliverer of God’s people - yet both are looking forward in time to the coming of... More > the Messiah. So who is it that is coming and what will be the impact of this event? Is there any hope of reconciling such divergent viewpoints? This study suggests that there is more commonality between Jewish and Christian perspectives than may first appear. By drawing primarily from the Hebrew Scriptures and the Christian New Testament Scriptures, it traces the unfolding story of God’s plan of redemption, reconciliation and restoration of the world to Himself though His chosen nation, the Children of Israel, and the promised Messiah. It is an epic narrative of a kingdom usurped and being regained, and one that is both uplifting and full of hope but at the same time sobering, raising concerns for all of us at this present time.< Less

Walking in the Spirit By Robert Laynton
Paperback: $14.82
Prints in 3-5 business days
Jesus is our Lord, Sovereign and King but what does it mean to be a servant of the Lord? As a Christian, what criteria do we use to evaluate the service that we render to our King and what does our... More > service entail? How do Christians actually put what the Lord requires into action? What happens when they fail? These fundamental questions are relevant not just to Christians but to all of humanity. In this study, our relationship to Jesus as Lord is considered, including reasons for our failures and the approach that the apostle promotes to minimize them. The core text that is used is Paul’s letter to the Romans – particularly chapters 6 – 8. This book will be of interest to Christians who are committed to God in their day-to-day life and also to Christian counselors and pastors. It presents the apostle’s dynamic model of human beings as we are by nature – and the model of the person who is born again – both of which form an essential foundation for Christian counseling, pastoral work and psychology.< Less

Why are religions that claim to access Truth often in violent conflict with each other?... More > If there is a God, why is there so much suffering and evil?

If there is a God, why is... More > there so much suffering and evil? One approach that seeks to answer these questions is the 'mystical' tradition - the tradition of 'Inner spirituality' in which people seem to gain a direct experience of Truth, Reality and the 'spiritual realm'. But how does this this sit with orthodox religion? What sort of theology or philosophy does it elicit? Are these experiences consistent with each other? More importantly, are those who have these experiences really perceiving the Ground of existence or is this experience something else? Drawing on over forty years of personal transcendent experiences, author Robert Laynton explores such themes with insight and in depth.< Less
