Philip Yancy (1990): Where is God when it hurts

The book has 3 main sections addressing particular aspects of the problem of pain: the role of pain in life, God’s view, and how can we respond. The messages: (a) Pain is beneficial—it serves as a warning system. Without pain, we would also suffer and (b) Suffering is not part of God’s original design and He is not pleased by it.

Does God order suffering? Or did he simply allow human mess up the world and now is watching from a distance?

God who is neither unpredictable nor unconcerned. Using examples from the Bible and from his own experiences, the author looks at pain—physical, emotional, and spiritual—and helps us understand why we suffer.

Philip Yancey (1995): The Jesus I never knew

To know Jesus from different perspective. It starts from the birth of Jesus till His ascension.

Is Jesus son of God or son of man?

Jesus is both son of God and son of man. He is not just a human being but God with us. How could God: be born by a virgin, survive in the desert, have no place to lay His head, be crucified by His created man? From this perspective, we have to say He is an awesome God.

John Sloan (2002): The Barnabas Way - an unexpected path to God

Followers of God feel as though we are missing out on His blessings. The Barnabas Way tells us that God’s personal, intimate presence with us can be experienced each day only if we learn how to reach out to others.

Who is Barnabas and what is “his way”?

Barnabas means “son of encouragement”. He made his name in the life of the first-century church by believing in and encouraging a persecutor of Christians named Saul (Paul).The Barnabas way is an approach to life that involves identifying people who are in need, reaching out to them and helping them live a fuller life. This way not only brings us closer to God (helps us grow spiritually and experience God’s blessings), but it also brings rewards in our life on earth by helping us achieve the highest level of fulfillment in life (the ultimate basic human desire).

Philip Yancey (1997): What’s So Amazing About Grace?

The world runs by ungrace. Everything depends on what we do. Jesus’ kingdom calls us to another way, one that depends not on our performance but his own. For the gospel of grace begins and ends with forgiveness, Christians can and must reveal the grace the world is searching for.

What is grace?

Grace is a gift undeserved that comes at unexpected moments from outside; grace costs nothing for the recipients but everything for the giver. There is nothing we can do to make God love us more; there is nothing we can do to make God love us less.

靈程進階是否存在﹖基督徒的靈程是否像讀書升級般,由一年級逐漸升讀 直到畢業為止﹖

透過聖經的理解所得的觀點 不容妥協的絕對要求、『全有抑或全無』的兩極化講論、救恩實施的程序,我們可以理解靈程進階是聖經沒有主張的。但不是不能在教會使用,因為靈程進階是一個有的用的牧養工具、能幫助信徒靈命成長作較長盡而具體的規劃。
