Trump’s Unfinished Business offers Christians and leaders God’s template of justice to fight corruption (the Deep State) and make America godly again. In one book, you will find new applications of God’s commands that can be used to break up the Tech Giants’ monopoly, create a Digital Bill of Rights, reform Family Law, protect children’s rights, enshrine true gender equality, educate our youth with practical life skills, and deal sensibly with Climate Change. <br /><br />“We need pastors and preachers to read this book “Trump’s Unfinished Business” and apply the Law of God correctly, and preach it again to America and the world.” <br />~ALLAN PARKER, President of The Justice Foundation, <br />Lead counsel for Norma McCorvey, formerly “Roe” of Roe v. Wade, and Sandra Cano, formerly “Doe” of Doe v. Bolton<br /><br />"The insights of this book will provide hope for the future of America and preserve its calling as a lighthouse to the nations during our turbulent times.”<br />~DR. DENNIS LINSAY <br />President & CEO of Christ for the Nations<br /><br />“Steve Cioccolanti has nailed it with ‘Trump’s Unfinished Business.'... [He] is walking into the swamp with this book and showing us how to drain it!”<br />~JULIE DIEZ<br />Paralegal<br /><br />"The vision contained in Steve Cioccolanti’s book Trump’s Unfinished Business is far-sighted, wide-reaching, and convicting...Cioccolanti encourages Americans to embrace our Christian heritage without changing our divided republic into a theocracy... Cioccolanti is offering the Body of Christ the clearest path to employing the Biblical template to unite us as a nation and avoid civil war.”<br />~LORILYN ROBERTS<br />Award-winning AuthorPresident of Word Weavers International (FL Chapter)<br /><br />“Let me say Cioccolanti’s “Trump’s Unfinished Business” is truly excellent. Each chapter adds new insights to the body of knowledge. His analysis of the law is truly impressive and I particularly appreciate his proposals to improve the legal system and the broken family law court. I will be gladly passing this book around to my friends and esteemed colleagues. I highly recommend it.” <br />~DR. AUGUSTO ZIMMERMANN, PhD <br />Editor-in-Chief, The Western Australian Jurist<br />Professor and Head of Law, Sheridan College, Perth <br /><br />“In this book, Steve Cioccolanti exposes what has gone wrong, and he recommends solid ideas on how to set them right.... by going back to what is taught in the Bible.” <br />~RICH MARSH<br />Ex-Navy, Serial Entrepreneur, Software Developer, Career Consultant<br /><br />"Cioccolanti’s book is clearly visionary, well-researched, and will prove a valuable resource...By studying the chapter on education reform, you will learn strategies to reverse the current devolution of our Judeo-Christian heritage by atheistic and humanistic academics. For too long, the Bible has been sidelined in education due to an erroneous application of the principle of ‘separation of church and state.’" <br />~DR. JOHN MCELROY<br />Founder and Director of Southern Cross Association of Churches <br /><br />“Steve Cioccolanti has taken up a subject which I believe is a first... His writing is very thought-provoking, creative and visionary... I would imagine the laws in this book will be very close to the ones Yeshua will set up for the world when He comes to reign... This much-needed book... has come at a time with the Republic of the United States is fighting for its life.”<br />~SHIRA SORKO-RAM<br />Pioneer of the Jewish Messianic movement since 1967

<b>"What a wondrous work! This beautifully written and totally clear-eyed account of his pilgrimage will have you wondering whether we should all embark on such a journey, either of the body, the soul or, as in Egan's case, both." --Cokie Roberts<br /><br />"If this book doesn't quite settle the question of belief for you, it will at least fortify your faith in scrupulous reporting and captivating storytelling...Reading it, you feel yourself in the presence of goodness -- the kind you might simply have to decide to believe in." <i>--The New York Times</i><br /><br />One of <i>Oprah</i>'s Must-Read Books of Fall 2019</b><br /><br />Moved by his mother's death and his Irish Catholic family's complicated history with the church, Timothy Egan decided to follow in the footsteps of centuries of seekers to force a reckoning with his own beliefs. He embarked on a thousand-mile pilgrimage through the theological cradle of Christianity, exploring one of the biggest stories of our time: the collapse of religion in the world that it created. Egan sets out along the Via Francigena, once the major medieval trail leading the devout to Rome, and makes his way overland via the alpine peaks and small mountain towns of France, Switzerland and Italy. The goal: walking to St. Peter's Square, in hopes of meeting the galvanizing pope who is struggling to hold together the church through the worst crisis in half a millennium.<br /><br />Making his way through a landscape laced with some of the most important shrines to the faith, Egan finds a modern Canterbury Tale in the chapel where Queen Bertha introduced Christianity to pagan Britain; parses the supernatural in a French town built on miracles; and journeys to the oldest abbey in the Western world, founded in 515 and home to continuous prayer over the 1,500 years that have followed. He is accompanied by a quirky cast of fellow pilgrims and by some of the towering figures of the faith--Joan of Arc, Henry VIII, Martin Luther.<br /><br />A thrilling journey, a family story, and a revealing history, <i>A Pilgrimage to Eternity</i> looks for our future in its search for God.

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW EVERYTHING ABOUT THE FEASTS OF ISRAEL, MORE RESEARCH HAS UNLOCKED PROPHETIC CODES THAT ANSWER CONTROVERSIAL QUESTIONS<br /><br />Within the Body of Christ are multiple voices, often teaching different orders of future events. Some emphasize a pre-tribulation return, while others point to a mid-tribulation or post tribulation coming of Christ for the church. Who is right and can we know for certain? After 40 years of ministry and over 120,000 hours of personal Biblical research, Perry Stone believes he has discovered, with certainty, the order of future events as concealed in Israel’s final three fall festivals! When reading this book, you will learn that the chain of God’s divine order cannot be broken­­—as the types, patterns and fall festivals point to a pre-tribulation return of Christ for the overcoming believer (Revelation 2 and 3). Perry also takes “another look” at the days of Noah and Lot. He exposes fresh insight from Jewish sources that indicate this generation is running parallel to the signs from Noah and Lot’s day—pointing to Christ’s return (Luke 17:26-29).
The Gospel of John: A Commentary

The author of a much-loved two-volume Matthew commentary (1990) that he greatly revised and expanded fourteen years later, Frederick Dale Bruner now offers <i>The Gospel of John: A Commentary</i> -- more rich fruit of his lifetime of study and teaching. Rather than relying primarily on recent scholarship, Bruner honors and draws from the church's major John commentators throughout history, including Augustine, Chrysostom, Aquinas, Luther, Calvin, Bultmann, Barrett, and many more.<br /><br /> Alongside this "historical interpretation" is Bruner's own contemporary interpretation, which incorporates a lucid translation of the text, references to recent scholarship, and his pastoral application of the Gospel to present-day experience. Like Bruner's other work, this commentary is rich in biblical insights, broadly historical, and deeply theological.<br /><br /> Here is what Eugene Peterson said about Bruner's earlier work on Matthew: "This is the kind of commentary I most want — a theological wrestling with Scripture. Frederick Dale Bruner grapples with the text not only as a technical exegete (although he does that very well) but as a church theologian, caring passionately about what these words tell us about God and ourselves. His Matthew commentary is in the grand traditions of Augustine, Calvin, and Luther — expansive and leisurely, loving the text, the people in it, and the Christians who read it." The same could well be said about the present John commentary, which promises to be another invaluable resource for pastors, teachers, and laypeople alike.

<b>From the crucifixion of Jesus to the birth of modern morals, this "marvelous" account from an award-winning historian shows how the Christian Revolution forged the Western imagination (<i>The Economist</i>).</b><br />Crucifixion, the Romans believed, was the worst fate imaginable. It was this that rendered it so suitable a punishment for slaves. How astonishing it was, then, that people should have come to believe that one particular victim of crucifixion-an obscure provincial by the name of Jesus-had been a god. <i>Dominion</i> explores the implications of this shocking conviction as they have reverberated throughout history.<br />Today, the West remains utterly saturated by Christian assumptions. Our morals and ethics are not universal. Instead, they are the fruits of a very distinctive civilization. Concepts such as secularism, liberalism, science, and homosexuality are deeply rooted in a Christian seedbed. From Babylon to the Beatles, Saint Michael to #MeToo, <i>Dominion</i> tells the story of how Christianity transformed the world.

<b>Discover the Power of the Ascension.</b><i> <br /><br />Something happened.</i><br /><br />Jesus rose. But Christ didn't just rise from the dead. He ascended to Heaven.<br /><br />We hear the stories about Peter and John and all the heroes of the New Testament, and they're unstoppable Christians--fearless and bold. And sometimes we wrongly assume that they just got that way. That Christ died for their sins, and bam! They're instantly changed! On the contrary, the disciples were actually quite cowardly in their actions after the Resurrection.<br /><br />It wasn't until after the Ascension that they were on fire for Christ. So, what happened during the forty days? Something happened.<br /><br />There's more written about Christ's ministry before his death than the events that happened after his Resurrection, but when we look at Ascension, we begin to see that there's power in small details. We begin to see that something happened after the Resurrection--something happened to transform the lives of believers and make them more than followers.<br /><br />Looking at what happened after the Resurrection, and further at the Ascension of Christ, we start to see what happened to transform the followers--and in seeing this we might just be transformed ourselves.<br /><br />Something did indeed happen during the forty days. Jesus was not done teaching.

“Destined to become a classic of both urban reportage and contemporary spirituality” (<i>Los Angeles Times</i>)—<i>Tattoos on the Heart</i> is a series of parables about kinship and redemption from pastor, activist, and renowned speaker, Father Gregory Boyle.<br /><br />For twenty years, Father Gregory Boyle has run Homeboy Industries, a gang-intervention program located in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles—also known as the gang capital of the world. In <i>Tattoos on the Heart</i>, he has distilled his experience working in the ghetto into a breathtaking series of parables inspired by faith.<br /> <br />From giant, tattooed Cesar, shopping at JC Penney fresh out of prison, you learn how to feel worthy of God’s love. From ten-year-old Pipi you learn the importance of being known and acknowledged. From Lulu you come to understand the kind of patience necessary to rescue someone from the dark—as Father Boyle phrases it, we can only shine a flashlight on a light switch in a darkened room. <br /> <br />This is a motivating look at how to stay faithful in spite of failure, how to meet the world with a loving heart, and how to conquer shame with boundless, restorative love.

<p><strong>Evangelicals are losing the culture war. What if it’s their fault?</strong></p><p>In 2016, writer and filmmaker Ben Howe found himself disillusioned with the religious movement he’d always called home. In the pursuit of electoral victory, many American evangelicals embraced moral relativism and toxic partisanship. </p><p>Whatever happened to the Moral Majority, who headed to Washington in the ’80s to plant the flag of Christian values? Where were the Christian leaders that emerged from that movement and led the charge against Bill Clinton for his deception and unfaithfulness? Was all that a sham? Or have they just lost sight of why they wanted to win in the first place? From the 1980s scandals till today, evangelicals have often been caricatured as a congregation of judgmental and prudish rubes taken in by thundering pastors consumed with greed and lust for power. Did the critics have a point?</p><p>In <em>The Immoral Majority</em>, Howe—still a believer and still deeply conservative—analyzes and debunks the intellectual dishonesty and manipulative rhetoric which evangelical leaders use to convince Christians to toe the Republican Party line. He walks us through the history of the Christian Right, as well as the events of the last three decades which led to the current state of the conservative movement at large. </p><p>As long as evangelicals prioritize power over persuasion, Howe argues, their pews will be empty and their national influence will dwindle. If evangelicals hope to avoid cultural irrelevance going forward, it will mean valuing the eternal over the ephemeral, humility over ego, and resisting the seduction of political power, no matter the cost. <em>The Immoral Majority</em> demonstrates how the Religious Right is choosing the profits of this world at the cost of its soul—and why it’s not too late to change course.</p>

<b>A stunning reexamination of one of the essential tenets of Christian belief from one of the most provocative and admired writers on religion today</b><br /><br /> The great fourth†‘century church father Basil of Caesarea once observed that, in his time, most Christians believed that hell was not everlasting, and that all would eventually attain salvation. But today, this view is no longer prevalent within Christian communities.<br />  <br /> In this momentous book, David Bentley Hart makes the case that nearly two millennia of dogmatic tradition have misled readers on the crucial matter of universal salvation. On the basis of the earliest Christian writings, theological tradition, scripture, and logic, Hart argues that if God is the good creator of all, he is the savior of all, without fail. And if he is not the savior of all, the Kingdom is only a dream, and creation something considerably worse than a nightmare. But it is not so. There is no such thing as eternal damnation; all will be saved. With great rhetorical power, wit, and emotional range, Hart offers a new perspective on one of Christianity’s most important themes.
