STRAIGHT FROM HOLLYWOOD comes a dynamic business model for building a thriving career without compromising your faith. DeVon Franklin, vice president of production for Columbia Pictures, shares how being bold about his Christian faith while being driven and ambitious has actually helped him to excel in a high-profile, fast-paced, competitive industry. You are the movie. Produced by Faith parallels each step of the Hollywood filmmaking process with the faith-making process God uses to turn your career into a success. You will discover that it is possible to be both wildly successful and completely committed to God—and that you will be even more successful when you place your faith at the center of your career. You can unleash the power of your faith as your greatest professional advantage and use the compass of God’s Word to guide you to your true passion and purpose in life. In this informative, inspiring book, DeVon reveals the secrets to maintaining your faith while advancing in your career. Here he shows you: • How to discover The Big Idea for your life • How to take your career to the next level • How to recognize the signs God sends you that indicate when it’s time to move in a new direction • How to stand firm on your Christian principles without compromise • How to work with people who don’t understand your beliefs • How to choose a profession, industry, or company that is in tune with your purpose DeVon says, “I know from my own experiences that if you will put your career in God’s hands and trust him, you can’t account for all the ways he will bless you. When you step out in faith, he will open doors and bring you opportunities that will surpass even your wildest expectations. . . . If I have learned anything, it’s this: to get where you want to go, you first have to become the person God wants you to be.”

What is The 3:16 Series? The Apostle Paul encouraged Christians in the first century and therefore us today to "allow the Word of Christ to dwell in us richly" (Colossians 3:16, NIV). The 3:16 Series is based on this verse in Colossians. The series is designed primarily for small group study and interaction but will also prove fruitful for individual study. Thessalonica was a city of size and influence. It appears to have been a very busy, prosperous, and diverse area -- the perfect place for the message of God's grace through His Son Jesus to take root and spread, but also a place where it would meet significant resistance. Thessalonica was a tough place for new followers of Christ to grow up in their faith. Have you ever thought of the Apostle Paul as a concerned parent? Paul's letters to the church in Thessalonica are full of parental affection and advice. One can't help but be touched by his strong desire to be with his new converts -- to protect, guide, prepare, and comfort them. David Faust leads us through an inspiring study of 1 & 2 Thessalonians. We'll learn just how much the Apostle Paul wanted to make sure this young church received the proper spiritual nourishment; he wanted them to possess that unquenchable faith that, even today, we are encouraged to thirst for.

In Part One, we analyze the meaning of the Hebrew and Greek words translated Òfaith. Next, we explore how all of our faculties interact so you learn how to process a promise into a powerful word of faith. In Part Two, you discover how these principles are modeled by such Old Testament luminaries as Abraham, Enoch, Noah, Daniel's friends, and renowned Gentiles (Caleb, Rahab, and Job). In Part Three, we tackle such vital issues as the nature of Òsaving faith, the Òhow-to of effective trusting, and how your understanding of God's faithfulness influences your ability to trust Him. Whether you are a pastor, bible teacher, or small group leader seeking to transform the lives of those you serve, you will find a wealth of life-changing insights.

Discover the spiritual community's position on bioethics issues! Bioethics from a Faith Perspective: Ethics in Health Care for the Twenty-First Century offers a meaningful, rational, faith-oriented framework for deciding how to deal with important biomedical health care issues. Organ donation, managed care, the Human Genome Project, and medical technology that keeps people alive beyond their “natural” life span are some of the topics it illuminates through case analysis and resolution. Since almost all textbooks in bioethics omit the religious dimension of life (even though the field was inspired and stimulated by religious scholars at Princeton and Yale), this is an indispensable volume. While most people state their moral positions from the background of their religious traditions, many have not had the opportunity to study the relation between their faith perspectives and the difficult issues that arise in the pursuit of health care. This book shows the relevance, significance, and guidance that a faith perspective can offer for dealing with bioethical issues. This unique and thoughtful book: shows you how to distinguish and describe the relation between technical and ethical aspects of health-related issues provides you with a framework of moral principles, theories, values, and faith viewpoints teaches you the defining characteristics of a moral professional-client relationship related to faith helps you to discern when medical ethics and faith commitments are therapeutic and when they are not gives examples describing a moral problem, a faith perspective, and a justified position on that problem Since bioethics has been an amazing story of growth from the 1950s to the present day and is still expanding, there will be changes. Bioethics from a Faith Perspective stimulates that expansion by including the religious dimension. It is the perfect supplement to the existing literature on the subject.
