In this new edition of his popular book, Craig Dykstra explores the contributions of the traditions, education, worship practices, and disciplines of the Reformed Christian community in helping people grow in faith. In doing so, he makes the case that the Christian church, in its own traditions, has a wealth of wisdom about satisfying spiritual hunger and the desire to know God deeply--wisdom that offers coherent, thoughtful guidance in such diverse settings as congregational life, families, youth groups, and higher education.

Living the Life of FAITH is going to take you to a level of faith where trusting in the ability of GOD will be your first response to any situation or circumstance in life without depending on this world's system or your own ability. Faith outside of the word of GOD is no way to live. We need to grab hold to GOD's word like never before and cleave to the promises that he has made for us through the Bible. We need to know it is GOD's will and desire for his children to live a blessed, prosperous, healthy, and happy life. We need to know that we can live this life through faith in GOD and overcome difficult times and challenges in life. In order to do this, we need to know GOD and how he has sent his word to us. We must know how the power of GOD worked in the lives of people in the Bible and that power is still available for us today to change situations and circumstances on our behalf today no matter what we are facing. It is up to us to take our faith out of this world's system and put it in GOD's system. This book will be an inspiration for you to redirect your faith to GOD and lean on GOD for direction in your life. GOD is good and he wants to see good things happen in the lives of his children. We can experience the life that GOD intended for us to have through understanding and accepting the love and the grace of GOD that has been given to us through faith in Jesus Christ.

Most of us desire to have balance in our routines. We want to get to the place where our household, work, diet, rest, and exercise schedules are all in perfect harmony. But as believers, we know that if we don’t have spiritual balance, we will never truly have balance in any other area of life. For this reason, we have to consider the state of our heart and determine whether anything is taking priority over God. In this study, readers will have the opportunity to examine our levels of balance and see how they measure up against Jesus’ example. For it is only when we start within—and allow God to work in us—that we can find the equilibrium we need.

Faith is a decision we make to believe God; therefore, based on the life of faith and Gods delivering power; I was inspired with a sense of purpose to pass on the message of faith to others. I battled with a terrible migraine headache for many years and my husband fasted and prayed specifically for me six years ago and since then, I have never had another migraine attack. I have also had an adverse reaction to a medication that was given to me which comes on violently in the emergency room; I had a circulatory failure and was actually going into a cardiac arrest but God kept me and I have a lot to be thankful for. This has helped me find new strength and passion for life I never had before. He can do the same for you if you believe and receive it.

In what way can one think about ethical questions if one's starting point is Christian belief and a Christian view of life? This is the fundamental theme in Goran Moller's book Ethics and the Life of Faith: a Christian Moral Perspective. This book offers a contribution to a deeper understanding of morality as a human phenomenon. The author discusses how to set about forming moral judgements. Thus he asks what role the Bible should play in Christian ethics and to what extent we can rely on our moral intuitions. As regards method the author associates himself with the contemporary phenomenological tradition.
