"Eating with others is holy work." That theological conviction inspires a compelling invitation to everyday discipleship that is centered around shared meals. A life shaped by the table is one shaped by community, pastor and author Greg Mamula argues. We share common dishes, and the narrative of our lives begins to intertwine as we listen to our tablemates' stories and tell our own in turn. This new book presents a uniquely holistic approach to table fellowship as a spiritual discipline. Many table fellowship resources begin and end at the table, and many spiritual discipline resources limit the theological significance of the table to the Eucharist, led by clergy. Table Life is an intentional and interactive process of reflection and action, meals and mission, listening and storytelling, scripture and perspective, communion and neighboring. These disciplines connect the individual with Christ, the local church, their neighborhood, and their community contexts. Discover how participating in the spiritual disciplines of eating together, listening, storytelling, scripture reading, and communion in the context of a community you begin to be shaped into people who recognize and celebrate the presence of Christ in every aspect of life"--

The Open Table introduces believers and nonbelievers to the person and deity of Christ in a new and refreshing way. There are many people who argue God doesn’t exist and many who argue God does. Still, millions know that, all arguments aside, what they feel in their souls is a need for God. To some, the idea of searching for God sounds as ridiculous as chasing a leprechaun to get his pot of gold. And yet few go looking for a leprechaun, while millions go on looking for God. At the heart of the Christian story—the story at the heart of The Open Table—is this basic idea: God shows up in the lives of people who search for Him. The Open Table DVD uses state of the art video and the power of personal testimony to put God in front of anyone who has yet to meet Him. The Open Table Participant’s Guide is there for those whose interest is sparked and who want to dig deeper. In the unique and relevant voice of Don Miller, The Open Table introduces people to the person and deity of Christ, and everyone is invited to the table.

An Invitation to Cultural Psychology looks at the everyday life worlds of human beings through the lens of a new synthetic perspective in cultural psychology – that of semiotic dynamics. Based on historical work from many different fields in the social and behavioural sciences, and the humanities too, this perspective applied to cultural psychology suggests that human beings are constantly creating, maintaining and abandoning hierarchies of meanings within all cultural contexts they experience. It’s a perspective that leans heavily on the work of the great French philosopher, Henri Bergson, only now being realised as a core basis for human cultural living. Jaan Valsiner is the founding editor of the major journal in the field, Culture & Psychology, and Editor of the Oxford Handbook of Culture and Psychology. He is the first Niels Bohr Professor of Cultural Psychology at Aalborg University in Denmark, where he leads Europe's first Research Centre on Cultural Psychology.

An Invitation to Operator Theory

This book offers a comprehensive and reader-friendly exposition of the theory of linear operators on Banach spaces and Banach lattices. Abramovich and Aliprantis give a unique presentation that includes many new developments in operator theory and also draws together results that are spread over the vast literature. For instance, invariant subspaces of positive operators and the Daugavet equation are presented in monograph form for the first time. The authors keep the discussion self-contained and use exercises to achieve this goal. The book contains over 600 exercises to help students master the material developed in the text. The exercises are of varying degrees of difficulty and play an important and useful role in the exposition. They help to free the proofs of the main results of some technical details but provide students with accurate and complete accounts of how such details ought to be worked out.The exercises also contain a considerable amount of additional material that includes many well-known results whose proofs are not readily available elsewhere. The companion volume, ""Problems in Operator Theory"", also by Abramovich and Aliprantis, is available from the AMS as Volume 51 in the ""Graduate Studies in Mathematics"" series, and it contains complete solutions to all exercises in ""An Invitation to Operator Theory"". The solutions demonstrate explicitly technical details in the proofs of many results in operator theory, providing the reader with rigorous and complete accounts of such details. Finally, the book offers a considerable amount of additional material and further developments.By adding extra material to many exercises, the authors have managed to keep the presentation as self-contained as possible. The best way of learning mathematics is by doing mathematics, and the book ""Problems in Operator Theory"" will help achieve this goal. Prerequisites to each book are the standard introductory graduate courses in real analysis, general topology, measure theory, and functional analysis. ""An Invitation to Operator Theory"" is suitable for graduate or advanced courses in operator theory, real analysis, integration theory, measure theory, function theory, and functional analysis. ""Problems in Operator Theory"" is a very useful supplementary text in the above areas. Both books will be of great interest to researchers and students in mathematics, as well as in physics, economics, finance, engineering, and other related areas, and will make an indispensable reference tool.

Living the God-Breathed Life is more about becoming rather than doing. It reflects a Jesus worldview that disdains religious zealotry and mere orthodoxy in spiritual experiences. Learning to be present with Christ at His table of bounty brings you a life full of peace, power, and presence. You are invited to dine in His presence of acceptance where you can let go of all your burdens and meet Him face-to-face for a heart-to heart relationship. Living the God-Breathed Life is divided into three inspirational parts: The Conversation—spiritual conformation The Table—personal transformation The Encounter—with your living Christ The God-Breathed life removes "What if", "I should" and "ought to" and invites us to a more face-to-face and hands-on experience of God; Living the God-Breathed Life is scripturally sound and consistent. It is the realm of life and living God always intended to enjoy with you. Insightful “Join the Journey” questions at the end of each chapter and an interactive final chapter guide you in experiencing the truths presented through powerful personal times with God.

The communion table stands as an intersection between Word and Sacrament, between memory and hope, between pastor and congregation, between receiving and serving, and between community and individual. Leading from the table, says Paul Galbreath, professor of preaching and worship, is a way of thinking, speaking, acting, and living that grows out of learning to recognize and embody these connections in our lives as a congregation and as individuals. Developing leadership skills that connect the congregation's eucharistic practice to the life and work of the church is essential to moving toward unity within congregations, denominations, and throughout the church. This book is not a how-to manual on presiding techniques, however. Rather, this book is a series of reflections about the way the prayer at the communion table provides a pattern for our lives. The goal is to shift our understanding of table prayer from a formula led by the pastor to a road map that highlights intersections between the practices at the table and the daily practices in the life of the community that gathers around the table.
