What moves you? Beauty? “God looked over everything he had made; it was so good, so very good!” (Genesis 1) Worry? “It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” (Philippians 4) Injustice? “God was moved to compassion when he heard their groaning.” (Judges 2) Suffering? “Deeply moved, Jesus touched their eyes. They had their sight back that very instant.” (Matthew 20) The Bible tells a story about moving—people moving from place to place, from good times to hard times to good times again. But more than anything, it’s a story of a God who is moved by love, and who moves—and who moves us—to make the world a better place. Here in The Message 100 is the whole Bible—every single, moving word of it—laid out in 100 readings and arranged to reflect the unfolding story. Move through it at your own pace, and discover how God may be moving right there on the page, right here in your life.

According to Wikipedia: "Ellen Gould White (born Harmon) (November 26, 1827 – July 16, 1915), born to Robert and Eunice Harmon, was an American Christian leader whose ministry was instrumental in founding the Sabbatarian Adventist movement that led to the rise of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Supporters of Ellen G. White regard her as a contemporary prophet, even though she never claimed this title for herself. Support for her role is usually expressed in the language that she exhibited the spiritual gift of prophecy as outlined in the New Testament. Her restorationist writings showcase the hand of God in Christian history. This cosmic conflict, referred to as the "great controversy theme", is foundational to the development of Seventh-day Adventist theology. Her involvement with other Sabbatarian Adventist leaders, such as Joseph Bates and her husband James White, would form what is now known as the Seventh-day Adventist Church. White was a controversial figure even within her own lifetime. She claimed to have received a vision soon after the Millerite Great Disappointment. In the context of many other visionaries, she was known for her conviction and fervent faith. Randall Balmer has described her as "One of the more important and colorful figures in the history of American religion". White is the most translated female non-fiction author in the history of literature, as well as the most translated American non-fiction author of either gender. Her writings covered theology, evangelism, Christian lifestyle, education and health (she also advocated vegetarianism). She was a leader who emphasized education and health, and promoted the establishment of schools and medical centers. During her lifetime she wrote more than 5,000 periodical articles and 40 books; but today, including compilations from her 50,000 pages of manuscript, more than 100 titles are available in English. Some of her more popular books include Steps to Christ, The Desire of Ages, and The Great Controversy."

What does the Bible say about women’s roles in the church? With pros and cons on either side of a heated, ongoing debate, no definitive conclusions have emerged. This book furnishes you with a clear and thorough presentation of the two primary views on women in ministry so you can better understand each one’s strengths, weaknesses, and complexities. Each view—egalitarian (equal ministry opportunity for both genders) and complementarian (ministry roles differentiated by gender)—is represented by two contributors. This revised edition of the book brings the exchange of ideas and perspectives into the traditional Counterpoints format. Each author states his or her case and is then critiqued by the other contributors. The fair-minded, interactive Counterpoints forum allows you to compare and contrast the two different positions, and to form your own opinion concerning the practical and often deeply personal issue of women in ministry. The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians. Counterpoints books address two categories: Church Life and Bible and Theology. Complete your library with other books in the Counterpoints series.

Jesus is coming for a perfect Church and this perfection would occur due to the full knowledge of Jesus. This is why there has been a progressive revelation in the Church. The word of God to us is precept upon precept, line upon line, here a little and there a little.Many times, the Church has separated subsequent teachings from preceding ones, but now is the time to put the teachings in the Biblical view of Christ's plan for the New Testament till we come to the unity of the faith. This book is for the unity of the body of Christ and not to cause any division.2Corinthians 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament;It is painful that with the amount of the knowledge of God and His word in this generation we still find ministers dwelling on the message and doctrine of the Old Testament. The Old Testament is known as the ministration of death (2Corinthians 3:7), while the New Testament is the ministration of the Spirit (2Corinthians 3:8). Why dwell on the death message, ignoring the one full of life?2Corinthians 3:12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: Pardon my plainness of speech. It is because of the seriousness of the matter on ground. I want to pass across the truth as revealed and not as I have been taught or indoctrinated. It is time for the Church to be weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts, and to seek the full knowledge of Christ and His plan for the Church (Isaiah 28:9-13).A.W. Tozer wrote, ''As long as we know that our view of the truth is partial we can preserve the humbleness of mind appropriate to the circumstances; but let us once get the notion that our view is total and we become intellectually intolerant. Let us become convinced that ours is the only sensible view and our ability to learn dies instantly.''The Spirit of the Lord is the One to take away every veil blocking the eyes of our understanding, so I will ask you to follow the text of this book with sensitivity to the Holy Spirit in every minute detail. There are many Bible references which I would implore you to read, and if need be, go over them using different translations for a better understanding of the content.Christ has made us free; let us walk in that liberty!

The Man: You can’t separate the man from the message. This chapter deals with the preparations and surrender that a true God-called preacher must be willing to endure. Drawing from Paul’s pattern to the Thessalonians, Dr. Peacock deals with issues like confrontation, preaching for results, and discouragement. The Message: God has a message He wants to be imparted to the congregation each Sunday. This chapter explains what biblical preaching is and how to find the right message. Dr. Peacock tackles things like harsh preaching, outward conformity, and preaching on “isms.” He also deals with what to keep out of the pulpit. The Ministry: A biblical ministry is built on the proper foundation: the Lord Jesus Christ. This final chapter addresses many concerns in the ministry. Dr. Peacock offers his advice and biblical explanation for things like when to start a church, the appearance of church facilities, how to treat visitors, missions, street preaching, counseling, and much more.
