Reshaping the Inner You

Reshaping the Inner You

Dr. William H. Hinson, author of Reshaping the Inner You, says that in his years as a pastor and through personal experience, that we can allow the hard times to steal all of life's rich meaning, or we can enter into a renewing process that will reshape us from inside out. This is not a naïve statement. It is based on a slow but steady discovery that the steadfast love of God never fails. In the middle of turbulent, sometimes discouraging, times God has not abandoned us. He is working in the lives of people and in the very events that shape and mold our world. For those who have had relationships go awry, who have seen frustrations and fears block their plans, who have experienced depression, temptation, accidents, sickness, or suffering, Dr. Hinson shows how to meet and triumph over our troubles, through trust in Jesus.

What I Believe (230 Kum)

What I Believe (230 Kum)

Hans Kung is one of the most celebrated theologians of the present day. His audience, which is strong within his own Roman Catholic Church, is equally solid among Christians of other denominations, among those outside the churches, and indeed among those at the frontiers of organized religion. From the start, he has been a rebel, being Swiss and a lover of personal freedom. Many of his books such as Infallible and On Being a Christian have rocked the Papal boat. Now Kung has written a much shorter and more personal book to explain his own beliefs. If one sets aside all scientific knowledge and learning, all formal theological language and the skillful construction of theories, what remains as the core of faith? What do we need for our lives? What is indispensable to us? Kung writes of trust in life, joy in life, and suffering in life, and in so doing gives us a summary of his own faith--and life.
