Crazy Christians

A Radical Way of Life

By Bishop Michael B. Curry

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Bishop Michael Curry preached at the Royal Wedding 2018; he calls for radical disciples of Jesus to change the world.

We need some Christians who are as crazy as the Lord. Crazy enough to love like Jesus, to give like Jesus, to forgive like Jesus, to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God like Jesus. Crazy enough to dare to change the world from the nightmare it often is into something close to the dream that God dreams for it. And for those who would follow him, those who would be his disciples, those who would live as and be the people of the Way. It might come as a shock, but they are called to craziness.

From Bishop Curry's "Crazy Christians" address to the 2012 General Convention of the Episcopal Church in Indianapolis.

The Last Lecture

Randy Pausch, Jeffrey Zaslow
Authors:
Randy Pausch, Jeffrey Zaslow

The phenomenal international bestseller - with over 8 million copies sold.What legacy would you choose to leave behind for your children?When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give 'a last lecture' lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. But the lecture he gave, 'Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams', wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because time is all you have and you may find one day that you have less than you think). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living.A lot of professors give talks titled 'The Last Lecture'. Professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy?In this book, Randy Pausch has combined the humour, inspiration, and intelligence that made his lecture such a phenomenon and given it an indelible form. It is a book that will be shared for generations to come.

Your Words Have Power

R.T. Kendall
Authors:
R.T. Kendall

'I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.' (Matthew 12:36) R. T. Kendall admits that this Bible verse worries him, as he knows he will one day have some explaining to do! If you are honest, how does it make you feel? Controlling the tongue - having the wisdom to know what to say and when to say it - is one of the toughest biblical commandments we face. We often fail to realise the power of the spoken word, and our careless talk can sometimes be more damaging than we realise. But in this unique book R. T. demonstrates that, with the help of the Holy Spirit, the challenge is not beyond us. Learning to control the tongue will not only make you faithful to God's call but will also strengthen your character, making you more like Jesus.
