In Searching for God Knows What, best-selling author Donald Miller invites you to reconnect with a faith worth believing. With humor, intelligence, and his trademark writing style, he shows that relationship is God’s way of leading us to redemption. And our need for redemption drives us to relationship with God. “Being a Christian,” Miller writes, “is more like falling in love than understanding a series of ideas.” Maybe you are a Christian wondering what faith you signed up for. Or maybe you don’t believe anything and are daring someone—anyone—to show you a genuine example of authentic faith. Somewhere beyond the self-help formulas, fancy marketing, and easy promises there is a life-changing experience with God waiting. Searching for God Knows What weaves together beautiful stories and fresh perspectives on the Bible to show one man’s journey to find it. “Like a shaken snow globe, Donald Miller’s newest collection of essays creates a swirl of ideas about the Christian life that eventually crystallize into a lovely landscape . . . [He] is one of the evangelical book market’s most creative writers.” —Christianity Today “If you have felt that Jesus is someone you respect and admire—but Christianity is something that repels you—Searching for God Knows What will give you hope that you still can follow Jesus and be part of a church without the trappings of organized religion.” —Dan Kimball Author of The Emerging Church and Pastor of Vintage Faith Church, Santa Cruz, CA “For fans of Blue Like Jazz, I doubt you will be disappointed. Donald Miller writes with the wit and vulnerability that you expect. He perfectly illustrates important themes in a genuine and humorous manner . . . For those who would be reading Miller for the first time, this would be a great start.” —Relevant

Face au chaos, à l'énigme du monde, Au présent est une interrogation en forme d'éclatement, où s'entrecroisent des fragments de récits autobiographiques, de chroniques et de lectures, des réflexions philosophiques et théologiques, des descriptions de la nature ou encore des statistiques. Cette tentative de décryptage se déploie au travers de thèmes récurrents repris tout au long des sept chapitres comme autant de champs d'exploration. La grâce rivalise avec l'horreur, le mysticisme se mêle aux nombres, l'individu affronte la multitude, les vivants marchent sur la tête des morts. En un subtil télescopage du passé et du présent, Annie Dillard crée une chambre d'écho où les questions se répercutent et s'amplifient peu à peu : Quelle est la place de l'individu au sein de la multitude ? Que sommes-nous au regard de l'éternité ? Dieu est-il à l'origine du mal ? Comment vivre ? A ces questions irrésolues répond la compassion de l'auteur qui de la détresse et du mystère du monde fait jaillir des fragments d'épiphanie.

Winner of the Distinguished Book Award from the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion The Emerging Church Movement (ECM) is a creative, entrepreneurial religious movement that strives to achieve social legitimacy and spiritual vitality by actively disassociating from its roots in conservative, evangelical Christianity and "deconstructing" contemporary expressions of Christianity. Emerging Christians see themselves as overturning outdated interpretations of the Bible, transforming hierarchical religious institutions, and re-orienting Christianity to step outside the walls of church buildings toward working among and serving others in the "real world." Drawing on ethnographic observation of emerging congregations, pub churches, neo-monastic communities, conferences, online networks, in-depth interviews, and congregational surveys in the US, UK, and Ireland, Gerardo Marti and Gladys Ganiel provide a comprehensive social-scientific analysis of the development and significance of the ECM. Emerging Christians, they find, are shaping a distinct religious orientation that encourages individualism, deep relationships with others, new ideas about the nature of truth, doubt, and God, and innovations in preaching, worship, Eucharist, and leadership.

En 1926, Joe Trace assassine sa jeune maîtresse Dorcus. En proie au désespoir et à la jalousie, Violette, la femme de Joe, se précipite à son tour sur la dépouille de sa rivale, dans le but de la tuer une seconde fois. Bouleversés par la violence et l’horreur de leurs gestes, les deux époux vont impitoyablement fouiller leur passé commun pour comprendre leur présent dévasté. Nourri d’une musique qui vient incarner la liberté d’une nouvelle génération de Noirs américains dans le Harlem des années 20, ce roman n’est pas seulement construit au rythme d’un morceau de jazz. Il devient, au fil de la narration, le Jazz. Un roman magnifique, où s’affirme à chaque page le pouvoir de l’amour, qui triomphe de l’âge, de la vulnérabilité de la chair et, finalement, du désespoir.

There is no such thing as a naked spirituality. Our spirituality is always shaped by the clothes of our experience. The quest of Spirituality with Clothes On is to acknowledge that we do wear clothes; and, by examining them, we begin to understand ourselves and accept others who are wearing different outfits. We are what we wear: we cannot separate ourselves from our gender, personality, developmental stage, family, historical background, culture, or the difficult experiences of our lives. We need to acknowledge all these things, reflect on them--and sometimes even embrace them--in order to truly become ourselves.

“Lord, Whatever It Takes, Make Me Like You!” You long to serve God with grace and strength, to reflect Christ in every word and action. Yet you find yourself continually struggling to bring that vision to life in your daily walk. At our very core, every one of us is a “twisted sister” within whom the flesh and spirit battle constantly for control. We are afflicted with spiritual schizophrenia, the disconnect between our “good girl” desire to put Jesus first and our “bad girl” realities that crowd our thoughts and push him out of the way. In this life-changing book, Joanna Weaver, author of the perennial bestseller, Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World, directs your gaze past your own shortcomings to the God who stands ready, willing, and able to make a new woman out of you. She equips you with biblical insights and practical tools to partner with Christ, inviting him into the hidden places of your soul and giving him full permission to redeem and renovate. Drawing on the stories of biblical Marys and others whose experience with God transformed their lives, Joanna shows how you can find the hope, healing, wholeness, and joy your heart longs for. Having a Mary Spirit will launch you toward lasting personal transformation–soul-deep change that results in a complete makeover, from the inside out. **Includes a 12-week Bible study for both individual reflection and group discussion**

Luego de décadas de relaciones fracasadas y doloroso drama, Donald Miller decidió que había tenido suficiente. Impresionar a las personas no lo estaba ayudando a conectar con nadie. Había construido una vida de aislamiento público, sin embargo, soñaba con relaciones significativas. Así que a los cuarenta años tomó una decisión que le asustaba: ser él mismo sin importar lo que costara. Del autor de Blue Like Jazz (Tal Como el Jazz) llega un libro sobre el riesgo que implica decidir impresionar a menos personas y conectar con más; sobre la libertad de dejar de actuar y comenzar a amar. Es una historia sobre derribar viejos muros para crear una mente saludable, una familia fuerte, y una carrera satisfactoria. Y se siente como una conversación con la mejor clase de amigo: inteligente, gracioso, verdadero, importante. Este libro es Donald Miller en su mejor expresión. // After decades of failed relationships and painful drama, Donald Miller decided he’d had enough. Impressing people wasn’t helping him connect with anyone. He’d built a life of public isolation, yet he dreamed of meaningful relationships. So at forty years old he made a scary decision: to be himself no matter what it cost. From the author of Blue Like Jazz comes a book about the risk involved in choosing to impress fewer people and connect with more, about the freedom that comes when we stop acting and start loving. It is a story about knocking down old walls to create a healthy mind, a strong family, and a satisfying career. And it all feels like a conversation with the best kind of friend: smart, funny, true, important. Scary Close is Donald Miller at his best.
