The Ladder of Monks
Guigo II the Chartusian (1114 - c. 1193) was the ninth prior of the Grande Chartreuse. His Ladder of Monks is one of the great spiritual classics that has inspired the method of lectio divina –spiritual reading of the Holy Scriptures– since the early Middle Ages. We find its influence, for example, in the reflection of Saint John of the Cross on lectio divina –see: “When God Speaks: Lectio Divina in Saint John of the Cross,” and it provides the key to understanding William of Saint-Thierry’s “On Contemplation.”

The Magnificent Mays

release date: Aug 15, 2012
The Magnificent Mays
Civil rights activist, writer, theologian, preacher, and educator, Benjamin Elijah Mays (1894–1984) was one of the most distinguished South Carolinians of the twentieth century. He influenced the lives of generations of students as a dean and professor of religion at Howard University and as longtime president of Morehouse College in Atlanta. In addition to his personal achievements, Mays was also a mentor and teacher to Julian Bond, founder of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee; future Atlanta mayor Maynard Jackson; writer, preacher, and theologian Howard Washington Thurman; and the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. In this comprehensive biography of Mays, John Herbert Roper, Sr., chronicles the harsh realities of Mays’s early life and career in the segregated South and crafts an inspirational, compelling portrait of one of the most influential African American intellectuals in modern history. Born at the turn of the century in rural Edgefield County, South Carolina, Mays was the youngest son of former slaves turned tenant farmers. At just four years of age, he experienced the brutal injustice of the Jim Crow era when he witnessed the bloody 1898 Phoenix Riot, sparked by black citizens’ attempts to exercise their voting rights. In the early 1930s Mays discovered the teachings of Mohandas Gandhi and traveled to India in 1938 to confer with him about his methods of nonviolent protest. An honoree of the South Carolina Hall of Fame and recipient of forty-nine honorary degrees, Mays strived tirelessly against racial prejudices and social injustices throughout his career. In addition to his contributions to education and theology, Mays also worked with the National Urban League to improve housing, employment, and health conditions for African Americans, and he played a major role in the integration of the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA). With honest appreciation and fervent admiration for Mays’s many accomplishments and lasting legacy, Roper deftly captures the heart and passion of his subject, his lifelong quest for social equality, and his unwavering faith in the potential for good in the American people.

The Autobiography of a Maverick Christian

release date: Feb 01, 2021
The Autobiography of a Maverick Christian
When I was a young baby boomer growing up in Los Angeles and Inglewood, California, I felt "the maverick" in me. My favorite TV shows were the westerns of the 1950s and 1960s. I always admired the cowboys and gunslingers for their strong character and courage. Like them, I also was unconventional and independent and did not think or behave in the same way as my peers or others. Occasionally, I was rebellious and did not take orders readily. As I grew and became a man, I always felt confident in myself as a leader, and I rarely regarded others, especially my peers, as being my even change or equivalent. However, to become a real man, I needed leadership where I was weakest. So I often sought from adult men righteousness, truthfulness, boldness, faithfulness, loyalty, and authenticity. I needed a man with good strong character who told the truth and spoke to me in a language that I understood, not to discourage me or criticize me unfairly but to elicit from me my best traits. Honestly, I needed another maverick Christian to lead me away from destruction and into life. Perhaps you feel the maverick in you. Whether life is currently good, bad, or ugly, I invite you to experience my Christian journey of aligning with the ultimate high priest for all mavericks. Pray to God right now and ask Jesus to be your Savior! He is able to inspire the wildest of us.

Fight Back

Fight Back
One of the forgotten attributes of God that every Believer must develop in their lives is that of the warrior. God is a God of war and this is more relevant today than ever before. We're living in times where the devil isn't even trying to hide anymore, and unfortunately, many still do not see him because this is a season of great deception. The only answer to the enemy's lies and deception is truth. However, when we decide to be truth-bearers, we must prepare for war. The American Church is experiencing unprecedented hostility as the spirit of anti-Christ is alive and well. This is not the time or season for the Body of Christ to continue as it did in times past because war has been declared against the Church. We cannot respond with passivity and comply with the demands of the kingdom of darkness. The devil hates God's Church, and if he can checkmate the American Church, he can fulfill his one-world government, sinister plans. We are not only the bodyguard for righteousness and freedom but God's ordained bully to the evil unseen kingdom. The Body of Christ is no place for cowards. It's time to fight back!
