Being Human

How to become the person you were meant to be

By Steve Chalke

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

What kind of person do you want to become?

'Your life is precious - a precious gift. It is sacred; every moment of it. The opportunity to live rather than sleepwalk through our days belongs to us. This book is a call to wake up. It is a call to each one of us; to wake up, to live before we die.'

It's easy to sleepwalk through life without ever really considering what we're here for. But life presents us with continual opportunities to wake up - and to think about not just what we do with our lives, but who we become while living them. Ultimately it is the story that we believe about ourselves, our lives and the world around us that will shape us - for better or for worse. So where do we find a good story - a convincing narrative that makes sense of it all?

Steve Chalke suggests that Jesus' good news about the kingdom of God - a practical, lived-out expression of God's plans for the world - is the best story for us to find ourselves in. Each one of us is called to be part of the drama of the coming kingdom, and it's in this that we find a practical spirituality that helps shape our lives into everything we were meant to be.

Fearfully and Wonderfully

Philip Yancey, Paul Brand
Authors:
Philip Yancey, Paul Brand

Mysterious, intricate, pulsing with energy ... the human body is an endlessly fascinating repository of incredible secrets. In this new work, comprising two classics (Fearfully and Wonderfully Made and In His Image) edited together and updated, renowned surgeon Dr Paul Brand and award-winning writer Philip Yancey take us on a tour of wonder through the human body.Illustrated with stories from Dr Brand's ground-breaking career as a hand surgeon who changed the lives of leprosy sufferers by transforming medical treatment protocols, this lively narrative paints an unforgettable portrait of the incredible unity of the human body in its trillions of parts.As compassionate as he was brilliant, Dr Brand cared as much about his suffering patients as he was intensely curious about how the body works. And so just as his brilliant intuition - which led to medical breakthroughs earning him international awards and acclaim - makes human physiology come alive on the page, so does his deep love for people in their dignity as image-bearers make spirituality come alive on the page as well.Although Brand and Yancey do not presume that readers share their Christian faith, they trace the metaphor of 'one body, many parts' from a medical perspective on human life as well as a mystical perspective on the unifying presence of the Body of Christ. Filled with riveting stories of Dr Brand's work among the marginalized and outcast, this journey of understanding offers astonishing insights and page-turning reading.

The Prodigal Prophet

Timothy Keller
Authors:
Timothy Keller

Most people, even those who are nonreligious, are familiar with the book of Jonah: a rebellious prophet defies God and is swallowed by a whale. Less familiar to most people is the second half of this Biblical story--what happens after Jonah is released from the belly of the fish. Yet it is in this second half of the story that one of the most powerful and important lessons of the Bible is hidden.The famous story shows how, if we would understand the mercy of God, it will always take us in directions we would rather not go, toward people we would rather not care about, and ultimately into the deepest counsels of God. In a time of growing division, The Prodigal Prophet shows us God's love among people, and how Christians must listen to God's call even when it takes them to uncomfortable places.

Healing the Soul of a Woman

Joyce Meyer
Authors:
Joyce Meyer

Can a woman who has been deeply hurt by life's circumstances be healed, heart and soul? If she has been wounded by a man she loved and trusted, can she love and trust again? As a woman who endured years of abuse, abandonment, and betrayal by those closest to her, Joyce Meyer can answer with a resounding "yes!"Meyer's positivity comes from living her own journey, and from seeing so many women who don't believe they can fully overcome their pain-or even know where to begin-find the guidance they need in the life-changing wisdom of the Bible.Meyer's bestseller Beauty for Ashes told of her personal story of healing. Now, with the passage of more time, HEALING THE SOUL OF A WOMAN delves deeper into Joyce's story and the journey of healing for all women. Each chapter guides you through whatever obstacles may be holding you back to find your true destiny as God's beloved. God can heal all pain, and He wants to do this in you. Let HEALING THE SOUL OF A WOMAN be the first step toward the wonderful, joyful future God intends for you.

Prayers from the Heart

Lorna Byrne
Authors:
Lorna Byrne

Lorna Byrne has helped millions of people around the world by calling on them to realise that they each have a guardian angel and by showing them that can ask for help from God and the angels.Lorna is often asked for help on how to ask and how to pray, so in this new book she gives detailed advice and also includes prayers for different occasions.She says: 'Sometimes our prayers are so focussed on asking for things, we forget to listen out for what God, the angels and our love ones are trying to tell us. God always has this abundance of blessings prepared for us, small blessings and great blessings. He wants to give every individual great life-changing blessings, beginning when that individual is born. God will do everything to make it happen, but He will never infringe on an individual's free will, which a good reason for us to engage intelligent conversation with him - listening as well as asking - in prayer.'

Step Back

Norman Drummond
Authors:
Norman Drummond

Modern life is frantically busy - we rush from one thing to another, never stopping to think about what really matters to us, what we could be achieving if we could only slow down for long enough to see it.Norman Drummond draws on his wide experience as a headteacher, as a minister and as an internationally respected coach in life and business to bring home the fundamental lesson he has learned both for himselfand for others: we can't hope to achieve our potential unless we take time out to work out what is most important to us.Whether for a few minutes or for a few days, alone or with others - Drummond shows how easy and how effective stepping back can be.Most importantly, he focuses on the rich rewards of stepping back: clarity of thought, stronger objectives - and the ability to discern the true priorities of your own heart.STEP BACK is an essential book for a culture that is unable to rest and relax

Discipleship

David Watson
Authors:
David Watson

Christians in the West', claims David Watson, 'have largely neglected what it means to be a disciple of Christ. The vast majority of western Christians are church-members, pew-fillers, hymn-singers, sermon-tasters, Bible-readers, even born-again believers or Spirit-filled charismatics, but not true disciples of Jesus.''The call to discipleship is a call to God's promised glory. This is not a day in which to play religious games. Time is running out fast.'
