He firmly grasps of the overall structure of these oft-maligned epistles and presents a strong case for 2 Peter and Jude as coherent, consistent documents. Marked by exceptional exegesis, sharp, independent judgments and timely application to the concerns of the local church, Davids''s work not only connects with the latest scholarship, but also transforms these scholarly insights into helpful conclusions that benefit all believers.Informed, astute, and evangelical "The Letters of 2 Peter and Jude" display a careful balance between scholarship and pastoral concern, and is readily accessible for both teachers and students, pastors and thoughtful members of their churches.

The Spirit Who Speaks

The Spirit Who Speaks
“One aspect of life in the Spirit that was essential for Peter was hearing the Spirit speak. Is there such a thing as a word from the Lord today? Can anyone hear God speak? How do we know it is God who is speaking? This book answers these questions.” –Carol Lawrence from her preface Peter Lawrence was a vicar in the Church of England for many years until his death in 2009. As he began to write this book about living fully in the Spirit’s healing power, he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Accepting God’s will with grace, he has left behind this moving account of the spiritual reality that radiated from him and touched many lives. Blending anecdote, self-effacing humor, and biblical teaching, Peter describes how he discovered the gift of receiving a “word” from God, and the amazing healings of spirit, mind, and body that resulted. And he shows how God’s Spirit can guide you—powerfully, personally, day by day.

Lützen

release date: Jan 26, 2018
Lützen
The Thirty Years'' War (1618-48) was Europe''s most destructive conflict prior to the two world wars. Two of European history''s greatest generals faced each other at Lützen in November 1632, mid-way through this terrible war. Neither achieved his objective. Albrecht von Wallenstein withdrew his battered imperial army at nightfall, unaware that his opponent, King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden, had died a few hours earlier. The indecisive military outcome found an immediate echo in image and print, and became the object of political and historical disputes. Swedish propaganda swiftly fostered the lasting image of the king''s sacrifice for the Protestant cause against the spectre of Catholic Habsburg ''universal monarchy''. The standard assumption that the king had ''met his death in the hour of victory'' became integral to how Gustavus Adolphus''s contribution to modern warfare has been remembered, even celebrated, while the study of Lützen''s wider legacy shows how such events are constantly rewritten as elements of propaganda, religious and national identity, and professional military culture. The battle''s religious and political associations also led to its adoption as a symbol by those advocating German unification under Prussian leadership. The battlefield remains a place of pilgrimage to this day and a site for the celebration of Protestant German and Nordic culture. This book is the first to combine analysis of the battle itself with an assessment of its cultural, political and military legacy, and the first to incorporate recent archaeological research within a reappraisal of the events and their significance. It challenges the accepted view that Lützen is a milestone in military development, arguing instead that its impact was more significant on the cultural and political level.

Opening Minds

release date: Jan 01, 2012
Opening Minds
"Introducing a spelling test to a student by saying, ''Let''s see how many words you know,'' is different from saying, ''Let''s see how many words you know already.'' It is only one word, but the already suggests that any words the child knows are ahead of expectation and, most important, that there is nothing permanent about what is known and not known." — Peter Johnston Sometimes a single word changes everything. In his groundbreaking book Choice Words, Peter Johnston demonstrated how the things teachers say (and don''t say) have surprising consequences for the literate lives of students. Now, in Opening Minds: Using Language to Change Lives, Peter shows how the words teachers choose affect the worlds students inhabit in the classroom, and ultimately their futures. He explains how to engage children with more productive talk and to create classrooms that support not only students'' intellectual development, but their development as human beings. Grounded in research, Opening Minds: Using Language to Change Lives shows how words can shape students'' learning, their sense of self, and their social, emotional and moral development. Make no mistake: words have the power to open minds – or close them.
