With breathtaking sweep and insight, Rev. Frykberg reveals the genius of divine creation, human community, and a strategy for progress in personal character. This book will not just fascinate you. It will change you for the good. Dan Meyer Senior Pastor, Christ Church of Oak Brook Author of Witness Essentials and Leadership Essentials Humankind created in God’s image replicates the pattern of love and oneness in which the Trinity exists. But humans in time distort the pattern. In loving response, God sends Jesus to show us what a life of love looks like revealing the relational pattern by which it may be restored in us. This relational pattern is what Dr. Frykberg calls The Jesus Fractal, a uniquely fresh perspective on individual, spiritual growth and the Spirit of Christ working to recreate us in the image of God. Dr. Frykberg presents the seven dimensions of The Jesus Fractal with biblical foundation, personal applications, cross cultural implications for ministry, contemporary illustrations and engaging stories that will edify and challenge both the babe in Christ and the experienced spiritual guide. The seven dimensions are: Hearing and Experiencing the Word of God Following in Community Desiring to Do God’s Will Being Humbled in Faith Graced by God’s Love Empowered in the Spirit Sent into the World

Grow Like Jesus is the first book to delve into Luke 2:52, "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man."—a verse that spans the gap between Jesus the child and Jesus at the start of his ministry—and unpack its lessons in ways that are simple to understand but deep enough to drive meaningful changes in a person’s life. While we don’t know if Jesus performed miracles while living in Egypt, if he caught fireflies at night as a kid or if he went to sleepovers with his friends, we can be sure he wasn’t just hanging around eating lentils and pomegranates. Based on Luke 2:52, we know he was growing in four specific areas: wisdom, stature, favor with God, and favor with people. In other words, he grew intellectually, physically, spiritually and socially. As it turns out (and it shouldn’t come as a surprise) continual growth in these four areas will prepare us for success in life as followers of Christ—the type of success that allows us to know God and make him known; in other words, real success. The practical, applicable and accessible knowledge of Grow Like Jesus is perfect for anyone new to a faith in Christ or looking to breathe new life into their existing faith.

The God of classical Christian faith is radically transcendent--utterly beyond understanding and words. So if God is to be known it must be in the luminous darkness of unknowing. Drawing on a wide range of primary sources--biblical, patristic, and medieval--Barry D. Smith identifies and explores seven ways of expressing the otherness of God in classical Christian thinking. By allowing historical theologians to speak for themselves, he shows how an aversion to ontotheology long precedes postmodernism. The book first lays out the Old Testament and New Testament foundations for subsequent Christian reflections on divine transcendence. These were the teachings that the early church assumed and, with the assistance of Greek philosophy, further refined with their own set of apophatic conceptual tools. The main focus of the book is a sevenfold exposition of that theological refinement. Smith concludes by looking towards possible future theological developments within this apophatic tradition. Drawing on the theological methodology of historic Christianity, he indicates how a synthesis of the biblical teaching on the otherness of God with philosophical traditions other than those inherited from Greek philosophy is also possible.

Fractals are characterized by the repetition of similar patterns at ever-diminishing scales. Fractal geometry has emerged as one of the most exciting frontiers on the border between mathematics and information technology and can be seen in many of the swirling patterns produced by computer graphics. It has become a new tool for modeling in biology, geology, and other natural sciences. Drawing on interviews with African designers, artists, and scientists, Ron Eglash investigates fractals in African architecture, traditional hairstyling, textiles, sculpture, painting, carving, metalwork, religion, games, practical craft, quantitative techniques, and symbolic systems. He also examines the political and social implications of the existence of African fractal geometry. His book makes a unique contribution to the study of mathematics, African culture, anthropology, and computer simulations.

How can two people have a common faith but different political loyalties? How does the Christian faith shape how we should vote and participate in the political process? In this updated edition of Left, Right, and Christ, authors D.C. Innes and Lisa Sharon Harper discuss and explore how the Christian faith speaks directly to American politics today, but with different understanding and applications. They address questions like: Does God care about politics? Should we? Is it the government's role to take care of the sick? Do legalized abortions increase the number of abortions? Should we support people's freedom to choose a definition of marriage, even if we disagree with their choice? Does a free country mean that everyone is free to come here? Is the earth so fragile that the government should step in to protect it? Harper and Innes craft compelling chapters on hot issue that will keep Christian Americans thinking about how to navigate the intersection of faith and politics.

For two thousand years, Christians have been intrigued by the somewhat enigmatic Imago Dei references in the book of Genesis. Much theological ink has been spilled mulling over the significance and meaning of these words: "Let us make humanity in our image, according to our likeness . . . " In The Liberating Image, J. Richard Middleton takes on anew the challenge of interpreting the Imago Dei. Reflecting on the potential of the Imago Dei texts for developing an ethics of power rooted in compassion, he relates its significance to the Christian community's distinct calling in an increasingly violent world. The Liberating Image introduces a relevant, scholarly take on an important Christian doctrine. It will appeal to all Christians seeking to better understand what it means to be made in God's image.
