Magnificent Passage from the Author: Kat Martin. From New York Times bestselling author Kat Martin comes the spellbinding historical romance that launched her remarkable career. Mandy Ashton fled a stifling frontier existence for the glittering social whirl of Sacramento City, California’s state capital, trading childhood innocence for a woman’s burning desire. Though it’s risky to masquerade as her flighty cousin, Julia, Mandy is determined to give her cousin a chance at happiness with the man she loves. But Mandy is hardly faint of heart—proven time and again on a journey fraught with deadly adventure and sublime temptation. Travis Langley, known by his Indian name, Hawk, is a white man raised by the Cheyenne, a man trying to make peace with his dual heritage. The last thing he needs is a job chaperoning Julia Ashton, the California governor’s spoiled daughter. But Mandy—posing as Julia—is spirited, captivating, and irresistibly sensuous. By journey’s end, Mandy and Hawk have become helpless prisoners of a smoldering passion that nothing can kill—except, perhaps, the secret Mandy has guarded so carefully throughout the arduous days and passionate nights of their long, magnificent passage.

The New Testament Church from the Author: John P. Harrison. Christian communities today face enormous challenges in the new contexts and teachings that try to redefine what churches should be. Christians look to the New Testament for a pattern for the church, but the New Testament does not present a totally uniform picture of the structure, leadership, and sacraments practiced by first-century congregations. There was a unity of the Christian communities centered on the teaching that Jesus is the Christ, whom God has raised from the dead and has enthroned as Lord, yet not every assembly did exactly the same thing and saw themselves in exactly the same way. Rather, in the New Testament we find a collage of rich theological insights into what it means to be the church. When leaders of today see this diversity, they can look for New Testament ecclesiologies that are most relevant to the social and cultural context in which their community lives. This volume of essays, written with the latest scholarship, highlights the uniqueness of individual ecclesiologies of the various New Testament documents and their core unifying themes.

Jesus And The Father from the Author: Kevin N. Giles. The doctrine of the Trinity is one of the cornerstones of Christianity. In Jesus and the Father, Kevin Giles wrestles with questions about the Trinity that are dividing the evangelical community: What is the error called “subordinationism”? Is the Son eternally subordinated to the Father in function? Are the Father and the Son divided or undivided in power and authority? Is the Father-Son-Spirit relationship ordered hierarchical or horizontal? How should the Father and the Son be differentiated to avoid the errors of modalism and subordinationism? What is the relationship between the so-called economic Trinity and the immanent Trinity? Does the Father-Son relationship in the Trinity prescribe male-female relationships in the home and the church? "Kevin Giles points out serious problems in the teaching that the Son is eternally subordinated to the Father and argues effectively for the full eternal equality within the Trinity. This book should be read by all who wrestle with the complex but crucial doctrine of the Trinity."—Millard Erickson, author, Christian Theology “By showing that subordinationism is a revival of a heresy that was systematically rejected by the non-Arian Church, the author reinstates the classical orthodox doctrine of the Trinity in all its scriptural majesty and grandeur.”—Gilbert Bilezikian, professor emeritus, Wheaton College “Giles skillfully places before us the stark choice which each generation of theologians must face: will we allow the Bible to speak its message about the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to us, or will we use the Bible to advance our own agenda? This important book deserves to be widely read and carefully considered.”—Paul D. Molnar, professor of systematic theology, St. John’s University
