When the world starts to experience shared visions and dreams from God signaling a change looming in the future, Angel is called in to assist. Once again, the hero of the previous book, Angel, is there to ready the followers of the Light to stand strong in their faith against the Unbelievers. With Evil on the prowl again searching for new recruits in his evil plan to control the world, Angel must be there to offer guidance and comfort to those in need. Sent to Beachside, California, he is there at a local coffee shop comforting and consoling the newly returned soldiers and their families from the nearby military base. In Children Of God, we follow characters from the previous book, Angel, as they are led to new situations that bring many of them closer to God. Adam Munson has spent the past few years in the Middle-East fighting against Al Qaeda. Mandy, his ex-girlfriend has chosen a career as a nurse. Pam, still searches for meaning in her life since giving up her baby for adoption. Russ, the bullying quarterback is finally having his dream of playing football come true. These familiar characters are joined by new ones as the battle of Good versus Evil starts to approach. Author Bio: Anne E. Sonnack-Garcia has been an elementary school teacher for 18 years. She attended California Baptist University in Riverside and has a Master's Degree in Education. Anne has an art background in painting and also spent a year learning how to create violins.

Edmund Newey

Children of God uncovers the significant, but largely unnoticed, place of the child as a prototype of human flourishing in the work of four authors spanning the modern period. Shedding new light on the role of the child figure in modernity, and in theological responses to it, the book makes an important contribution to the disciplines of historical theology, theology and literature and ecumenical theology. Through a careful exploration of the continuities and differences in the work of Thomas Traherne, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Friedrich Schleiermacher and Charles Péguy, it traces the ways in which their distinctive responses to human childhood structured the broader pattern of their theology, showing how they reached beyond the confines of academic theology and exercised a lasting influence on their literary and cultural context.

Children and childhood are among the most neglected subjects of Christian theology. What does it mean to be a child of God if the examples of childhood in Scripture and the Christian tradition are taken seriously and placed in dialogue with twenty-first century science, sociology and morality? This collection of essays draws together a wealth of different perspectives on a much neglected but vital subject of theology and Christian living.

Jason Van Vliet

The starting point for the dissertation is John Calvin's keen interest in what the Scriptures teach about the nature and faculties of human beings, as well as their role and responsibility under God's authority. For Calvin, the proper way to understand human beings is to begin by considering them as they were originally created, that is, made in the image and likeness of God (Gen 1:26-27). How successful, though, was Calvin in articulating a clear and consistent understanding of the imago Dei? This question cannot be answered without giving due consideration to the historical context in which Calvin laboured. After all, the reformers were not the only ones who were reconsidering the nature and the dignity of human beings in the sixteenth century. The Renaissance humanists were also pondering this matter. In addition to this broad context of humanism, there were also other contexts within which Calvin developed his anthropology, for instance, his interaction with Philipp Melanchthon and Heinrich Bullinger, as well as his polemics with Andreas Osiander and Michael Servetus. The dissertation examines Calvins's explanation of the imago Dei within the times and ecclesiastical circumstances in which he lived. Dr. Van Vliet aims at giving a satisfactory answer to the question of whether Calvin's teaching on the imago Dei can be considered one of the stronger or weaker points of his reformatory work.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Desmond Tutu retells more than fifty of his most beloved Bible stories, artfully highlighting God’s desire for all people to love one another and to find peace and forgiveness in their hearts. Many of the finest artists from around the world—such as Jago, E.B. Lewis, Javaka Steptoe, and Xiao Xin—have been selected to illustrate the stories, portraying the stories with the style and richness of their own culture. Creating the first truly global Bible for children, their stunning full color illustrations allow readers to experience the Bible stories as if they were there—with Adam and Eve in the garden, with Noah on the ark, with Abraham in the desert, and with Jesus on the mountaintop. Every story shows how God works through history and ends with a short prayer, which personalizes the message for each reader’s own life. Archbishop Tutu’s wisdom, compassion, and sense of humor shine throughout as he reminds us that, “We are all God’s children.” Author, civil rights activist, and APARTHEID opponent Archbishop Desmond Tutu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his lifelong struggle to bring equality, justice, and peace to his native country of South Africa. As Desmond Tutu quotes: “In the spirit of celebrating children all over the world, each illustrator in this book has been invited to draw on their own unique and rich cultural heritage in their portrayal of these Biblical stories. Their art is truly a marvelous reflection of how we are all made in God's image.”

Carl E. Olson,Fr. David Vincent Meconi, S.J.

This book gathers fourteen Catholic scholars to present, examine, and explain the often misunderstood process of "deification". The fifteen chapters show what "becoming God" meant for the early Church, for St. Thomas Aquinas and the greatest Dominicans, and for St. Francis and the early Franciscans. This book explains how this understanding of salvation played out during the Protestant Reformation and the Council of Trent. It explores the thought of the French School of Spirituality, various Thomists, John Henry Newman, John Paul II, and the Vatican Councils, and it shows where such thinking can be found today in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. No other book has gathered such an array of scholars or provided such a deep study into how humanity's divinized life in Christ has received many rich and various perspectives over the past two thousand years. This book seeks to bring readers into the central mystery of Christianity by allowing the Church's greatest thinkers and texts to speak for themselves, demonstrating how becoming Christ-like and the Body of Christ on earth, is the only ultimate purpose of the Christian faith.

David E. Van Zandt

At the height of the religious ferment of the 1970s, David Van Zandt studied firsthand the most vilified of the new radical religious movements--the Children of God, or the Family of Love. First feigning membership and later gaining the permission of the Family, the author lived full-time in COG colonies in England and the Netherlands. From that experience, he has produced an informed, insightful, and humane report on how COG members function in what seems at first to be a completely bizarre setting. The COG, an offshoot of the Jesus People movement of the late 1960s, was one of the first radical religious groups to be accused of "brainwashing." Led by the charismatic David Berg, known as Moses David, the group demands total commitment from its full-time members and proselytizes continuously. Until recently the COG used sex as a proselytizing tool, and it continues to encourage full sexual sharing among group members. Instead of examining the COG's ideology in the abstract, Van Zandt analyzes how its ideas are understood and used by ordinary members in their daily lives. For them the Family is its practical, day-to-day, and all-consuming activities, such as "litnessing" (the street sale of COG literature). This is a vivid eyewitness account that will fascinate anyone interested in life in modern radical communal religions, such as the Unification Church and the Hare Krishnas, as well as in other radical, Christian-based, total-commitment groups. Van Zandt's frank reflections on his near-conversion experience and on the ethics of his covert observation enrich our knowledge of doing research with such groups. Originally published in 1991.
