Are you getting the spiritual nourishment you need? We have all experienced times when we have not eaten a balanced diet or have eaten too many sweets. We feel sick, light-headed, and occasionally depressed, or we become irritable and edgy. It´s the body´s way of letting us know that it´s lacking sufficient nourishment. Optimal health requires optimal nutrition. The same is true spiritually speaking. Without sufficient and regular biblical nutrition, our inner life begins to suffer the consequences. We become shallow and selfish, more demanding and less gentle, and quick to react impatiently, rashly, and angrily. These are telltale signs of inner malnutrition. In Searching the Scriptures, respected Bible teacher Charles Swindoll shows us how to dig deep into Scripture and uncover its profound truths for our lives. He outlines the principles of Bible study that will help you understand God´s word, apply it, and communicate it clearly to those around you. Too many people try to go it alone, without a guide for this life and the next. Swindoll explains how we can fix our own spiritual meals and then invites us to feast on nourishing truths we can discover in God´s word. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Denison.

Searching for the Self:Classic Stories Christian Scripture and the Quest for Personal Identity Adrian T. Smith
Beloved Bible teacher Margaret Feinberg invites you on a remarkable spiritual adventure to live more courageous and free.The Bible is full of clever plots and compelling stories, laced with historic insights and literary beauty. But despite its richness and depth, many of us struggle to close the gap between the ancient world and our own. What does it mean to know that Jesus is the Good Shepherd when the only place you´ve encountered sheep is at a petting zoo? How can you understand the promise of a land overflowing with honey when you buy yours in a bear-shaped bottle? Can you grasp the urgency of Jesus´ invitation to abide in the vine when you shop for grapes at a local grocery store?Margaret invites you to accompany her on the adventure of a lifetime - across the nation to herd sheep in Oregon, harvest fields with a Nebraska farmer, prune vines in California, and explore hives with a veteran beekeeper in Colorado. Along the way, you´ll explore how ancient livelihoods illuminate meaningful truths that apply to life today.´´I asked one question to each person, ´How do you read the Scriptures in light of what you do every day?´´´ she writes. ´´Their answers changed the way I read the Bible forever.´´With her trademark humor and vulnerability, you´ll learn the secret of how to live like you have a shepherd, unlock the sweetest promises of God, and discover the gift of divine timing. You´ll move from simply reading Scripture to entering stories that can be touched and tasted, smelled and savored. Scouting the Divine will revolutionize the way you understand the Bible - and leave you wonderstruck by the magnificence of God. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Margaret Feinberg.

Jesus tells us that the greatest commandment is to ´´love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” But how many of us know what this looks like in daily life? Does loving God mean going to church, tithing, having regular prayer times? Is it a feeling in our hearts? A few years after Chuck Colson became a Christian, he realized that the more he learned about God’s love for him, the more he wanted to know how to love God. This book is the masterpiece Colson wrote after searching Scripture, history, and his own difficult experiences to answer his deepest question. He discovered that loving God is obeying God - rarely easy, sometimes inconvenient, often painful, and entirely satisfying. When we love God, we know the pleasure of living out our true calling. Billy Graham considers Loving God ´´one of the most spiritually satisfying books I have ever read.” Joni Eareckson Tada refers to it as ´´the complete volume on Christian living.” With fascinating stories and engaging theological insights, Loving God has been bringing people closer to Jesus for over 30 years. In this hour of opportunity for the church and for our own spiritual lives, Loving God will inspire you to love God with your whole being. It’s what you were created to do. 1. Language: English.

Dr. Anne Davis is a professor of Biblical Studies at Trinity Southwest University and director of educational programs at BibleInteract. Her ongoing research has led her to the Hebraic nature of the New Testament, the intimate connection between the two testaments, and ancient methodology used by the apostle Paul and other New Testament authors. Her work to understand methods that would have been in use during the first century, before the production of hand-copied books, has led to this and other publications that explain and apply these ancient methods.These books include:Ancient Methods of Bible Study (instruction designed for beginners)All Israel Will Be Saved: Paul’s Midrash in Romans 9-11 (intermediate study)The Law Is Not a Curse: Paul’s Midrash in Galatians (advanced study)Uncovering Mysteries in the Parables with Haggadic Midrash (a practical way to begin learning ancient methods of searching the Scriptures)What is Israel’s inheritance? What is Israel at risk of losing? In book 1 of this four-part series, join Dr. Davis in this fascinating study as she turns to scripture to search for the answers to these questions. Dr. Davis shows us through scripture that all God’s children are born to a special inheritance, known as the birthright, because God calls them His firstborn son. However, simply being born to the birthright does not necessarily mean that receiving that inheritance is secured.There is the possibility of losing that special inheritance because of unrighteous behavior, and God will choose another son who is worthy. Dr. Davis finds that only those children of God who submit to their Lord as willing servants will be selected by God to inherit the birthright, and those chosen few are identified in scripture as a remnant. Dr. Davis will lead us on a journey that includes an introduction to the ancient artistry of language in the biblical text, the in 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anne K. Davis.

It is vital that you listen to Part 1 first before beginning this second audiobook in the series. The foundational principles are all explained in Part I: Israel’s Inheritance.This audiobook will uncover a wealth of information about a remnant of the Church, meaning those who believe in Yeshua the Messiah and have received God’s gift of the Holy Spirit through their faith in Christ. You will discover that God is not treating believers in Christ any differently than He was treating the children of Israel in the Hebrew Scriptures. What makes this audiobook on the remnant of the Church so compelling and provocative is that there are only two clear and literal references to the remnant in the New Testament. However, by listening for startling linguistic anomalies, which Yeshua’s audience would have heard, we will uncover a wealth of deeper meaning that points quite dramatically to the future 1.
