E-book Explanation:

Throughout history philosophers have sought to understand the nature of wisdom and how to achieve it, but Reverend George Johnson's Wisdom II explains that true wisdom comes from above and is a necessity for daily living. For centuries, many people grew up in homes defined by tradition and wisdom while others grew up in homes defined by whim and lack of knowledge. Wisdom II informs us that a wise person seeks understanding and knowledge, and anyone can receive it if he or she seeks it. Wisdom gives voice to the voiceless, help to the helpless, and hope to the hopeless. With this said, Johnson's own wisdom has directed him to construct Wisdom II using an ""unconventional pattern,"" where readers do not necessarily have to read prior chapters in order to understand future chapters. Wisdom's inspiring words captivate readers as each chapter tells a story, tells us what to do, and tells us what not to do. Wisdom II touches on every aspect of life from individuals getting rid of baggage that so easily weighs us down to learning how to enjoy life by ""smelling the roses."" To this end, Wisdom II is an inspirational manuscript full of voices of wisdom and ethics for everyday living.

E-book Explanation:

for upper voices and organ This radiant anthem was commissioned as part of the celebrations to mark Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee. It was first performed at the Service of Thanksgiving on 5 June 2012 at St Paul's Cathedral by choristers from the Chapel Royal, St Paul's, and an expressly auditioned 'Diamond Choir' of young singers from around the UK. Setting a text adapted from Proverbs 8 by Michael Hampel, Precentor of St Paul's Cathedral, that implores the listener to place their trust in a faithful God, Todd employs arching melodies and beautifully simple harmonies that are underpinned by a gentle organ accompaniment. With its peaceful simplicity and sparkling tranquillity, The Call of Wisdom would make an affecting addition to any service or concert. There is also a version for SATB.

E-book Explanation:

Who is the Holy Spirit and how can you walk in His power? Jesus walked in the power of the Holy Spirit and declared His disciples would do even greater works (Luke 4:14, John 14:12). Today, God’s power can still be released in and through Christians who will meet the Holy Spirit on His terms. In this book, the author introduces the ministry of the Holy Spirit, how His power can transform us and why we should know Him in all His fullness, as an indwelling Person. Drawing from the powerful experiences of Rees Howells, Evan Roberts and many other influential servants of the Lord Jesus Christ, the author unveils the secrets of going deeper with God, and how to grow beyond being blessed by the Holy Spirit, to be filled with the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:19). Paul Backholer is a British broadcaster and the founder of ByFaith Media (www.ByFaith.org). He is the director of ByFaith TV which airs on multiple platforms around the world and is the producer of several Christian documentaries. Paul is the author of Heaven: A Journey to Paradise, How Christianity Made the Modern World, The Exodus Evidence and The Ark of the Covenant – Investigating the Ten Leading Claims. Paul studied in a British Bible college in the 1990s and has travelled to over forty nations on Christian endeavours.

E-book Explanation:

Theology has its deepest roots as a course of study that leads to wisdom. Yet with the growth of the academy it began to be sidetracked into a fixation with the predictable results of science. In this illuminating study, Daniel Treier retrieves this older, deeper understanding and connects wisdom in theological education to the theological interpretation of scripture, giving rise to a renewed understanding to the role of virtue. Engaging in dialogue with a number of prominent proponents of theological interpretation of scripture, Treier builds on a biblical theology of wisdom that involves daily lives of all God's people. Ultimately, Treier connects educational discussions of theology and hermeneutical discussions through a Trinitarian understanding of wisdom. As a result, the increasingly diverse forms and social locations of theology can be integrated into the mainstream of theological reflection. Filled with interdisciplinary wisdom, Virtue and the Voice of God is a timely recovery of the essential conversation between theological education, virtue and the interpretation of scripture.
