Pastor Gregory S. Baker delivers a poignant and thought-provoking examination of the depth and struggles of a fallen Christian and the effort needed to help restore them back to the loving embrace of Jesus Christ. There has been much written on winning the lost to Christ, but very little focuses on those who have actually fallen away from Christ... ...and how to get them back. Restoring a Fallen Christian fills a gaping hole in Christian literature. The principles come straight from Scripture to provide insightful, practical, and thorough instructions to help bring someone back to Jesus Christ. It is a painful truth, but the Bible records stories of several men of God who stumbled in their faith and convictions. Sometimes, they didn't return. Thankfully, over time, many of them were brought back into the fold; but time has made it clear that fallen Christians are not unique to that period in history. We face similar stories of tragedy today, but the effort in bringing them back have become a hurdle for the church and a challenge for every believer. Pastor Baker presents a host of questions faced by many who have struggled through the anger, pain, emptiness, and confusion that is often experienced when a Christian walks away from God. In many cases, these fallen Christians can and want to come back. Often, though, we don't know where to start or how to proceed in helping them be restored-in fact, most of the time we don't even know the questions to ask. That's where Baker triumphs-this is his gift. His experience as a pastor and counselor allow him to speak on a subject that many others may shy away from. People fall away for many reasons, and he tackles most of them to provide the widest range of tools available to the Restorer. This book is a must-have for every Christian. If you don't need it now, there may come a time when you do.

FULL RESTORATION is not just about divorce! There is no other book like this one! Full Restoration reaches out to any Christian who has sinned in his or her past. Gods restoration is never partial, but complete! You can still be used mightily for God! Full Restoration presents a sound interpretation of 1 Timothy 3:2 The pastoral aspirant is to be one who is a "one woman kind of man". It emphasizes this man's present character, not his past sin. Full Restoration shows that there is not a place in the Bible that says men who have sinned in their past lose their giftedness. With confession and repentance they can be used effectively in ministry again! God's forgiveness and restoration is complete. Even Jesus told Peter after his denial of the Lord, "Feed my sheep"! Full Restoration is for all Christians who have fallen into any sin, but are forgiven and desire to serve the Lord again! May the church see its need to discontinue seeing these precious forgiven and gifted saints as second class citizens...but restored persons who will feed Jesus' sheep!

Re Imagining African Christologies

"Who do you say that I am" (Mark 8:29) is the question of Christology. By asking this question, Jesus invites his followers to interpret him from within their own contexts-history, experience, and social location. Therefore, all responses to Jesus's invitation are contextual. But for too long, many theologians particularly in the West have continued to see Christology as a universal endeavor that is devoid of any contextual influences. This understanding of Christology undermines Jesus's expectations from us to imagine and appropriate him from within our own contexts. In Re-imagining African Christologies, Victor I. Ezigbo presents a constructive exposition of the unique ways that many African theologians and lay Christians from various church denominations have interpreted and appropriated Jesus Christ in their own contexts. He also articulates the constructive contributions that these African Christologies can make to the development of Christological discourse in non-African Christian communities.

Once a forest has been destroyed, should one plant a new forest to emulate the old, or else plant designer forests to satisfy our immediate needs? Should we aim to re-create forests, or simply create them? How does the past shed light on our environmental efforts, and how does the present influence our environmental goals? Can we predict the future of restoration? This book explores how a consideration of time and history can improve the practice of restoration. There is a past of restoration, as well as past assumptions about restoration, and such assumptions have political and social implications. Governments around the world are willing to spend billions on restoration projects – in the Everglades, along the Rhine River, in the South China Sea – without acknowledging that former generations have already wrestled with repairing damaged ecosystems, that there have been many kinds of former ecosystems, and that there are many former ways of understanding such systems. This book aims to put the dimension of time back into our understanding of environmental efforts. Historic ecosystems can serve as models for our restorative efforts, if we can just describe such ecosystems. What conditions should be brought back, and do such conditions represent new natures or better pasts? A collective answer is given in these pages – and it is not a unified answer.

Following the Biblical story line of creation, fall-redemption-consummation, Spykman's new paradigm systematics represents a notable revision of the traditional loci method--Spykman has reordered the basic Christian dogmas in a bold attempt to overcome the rationalist-scholastic influences inherent in the older method.
