The Story of Christian Theology

Working my way through this large volume — I'm up to about the 4th century now. Christians theology has been in development for 20 centuries, with a lot of interesting twists and turns along the way. Roger Olsen's style makes this subject very accessible.

The Story of Christian Theology: Twenty Centuries of Tradition and Reform by Roger E. Olson

History is made up of stories — narratives that recount the events, movements, ideas and lives that have shaped religions and nations. Theologian Roger Olson believes that the history of Christian theology should be told as such a story, one replete with thick plots, exciting twists, interesting people and fascinating ideas.In this panoramic work of historical theology Olson vividly recounts the deeds and words of the cultists and apostolic fathers of the second century, the clash between the theological schools of Alexandria and Antioch, the epochal division between East and West, the revolutionary advent of the Reformation and much more, right on up to the dazzling, sometimes dismaying fallout that has continued to shake Christians through the twentieth century. Through it all Olson detects and traces a common thread: a concern for salvation — God's redemptive activity in forgiving and transforming sinful human beings.Evenhanded, refreshingly readable, impressive in its breadth and depth, The Story of Christian Theology is poised to become a standard historical theology text.

Rich Church, Poor Church

I'm currently reading this book. Saw this at Barnes and Noble and did something I don't usually do — paid full price because I wanted to start reading it right away. Some people wonder why the wicked prosper. Often it is because so many Christians are afraid of prosperity. This book lays the Biblical foundation to show that godly prosperity is not about greed but about the kingdom of God.

Rich Church Poor Church:
Unlock the Secrets of Creating Wealth and Harness the Power of Money to Influence Everything

by John Louis Muratori

What happens when you combine modern economics, business principles and solid Biblical insight? You get Rich Church, Poor Church!

We live in a time when instruction on business, personal finance and corporate economics is absent from most churches. Rich Church, Poor Church combines modern economics, business principles and solid Biblical insight, and details the God-given inheritance that makes it possible for the Church to prosper and thrive in all environments. You no longer have to choose between spirituality and prosperity

John Muratori, internationally renowned speaker and one of our nations leading wealth strategists, demystifies spirituality and prosperity so that you can be wealthy, Gods way.

In this book, John blends decades of business experience, intensive research and proven leadership to present you with the specific laws that govern the entire spectrum of wealth generation. The 12 Biblical Laws of Wealth Creation are the most universal set of directives on prosperity. Not bound by economic limitations, these laws are transcultural and transgenerational. Regardless of your age, environment or financial situation, the 12 laws will stop the lack and shape your financial destiny!

John Muratori identifies seven gates of cultural influence that he refers to as the Mind Molders. He details the crucial role wealth plays in controlling the gates that shape the lifestyles of our society and mold the minds of your children.

John chronicles the history of the Jewish people and their miraculous ability to create wealth. Though they were a people without a country for over three thousand years, they prospered and flourished wherever they sojourned. They possess a promise from God for success, influence, wealth and riches. Within this history, John pinpoints the birth of modern capitalism and reveals that the Scriptures provided its framework.

Prosperity: Good News for God's People

Last week and this, I have been enjoying the Believer's Voice of Victory broadcast. Kenneth Copeland has been discussing what the Bible has to say about prosperity with Fred Price, pastor of the Crenshaw Christian Center in Los Angeles, CA. It is a much needed word for many who are going through difficult economic times.

Prosperity: Good News for God's People by Frederick K. C. Price
The earth and all the riches in it are God's. But how do believers obtain it? Should Christians even be wealthy? Price reveals that purpose is the key to prosperity for Christians. We're called to understand God's plan and work to accomplish it by feeding the sheep and furthering God's kingdom.

"Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers" (3 John 2).

God intends for you to prosper and be financially secure for life!
Author and pastor Frederick K. C. Price shows you God's plan for you to
  • Gain wealth —God's way
  • Be blessed and walk in financial security — all the days of your life
  • Walk in the authority of God's Word — your key blueprint to success in life
This is not just a "name it and claim it" book, but rather a book contating essential sound biblical principles that will bless your life and completely transform it financially!
