God's Holy Fire
$14.95

Availability: In stock

The title of this volume, God's Holy Fire, is taken from William Butler Yeats' poem, "Sailing to Byzantium." This poem speaks of a yearning for a place of truth and beauty that is beyond our daily routines.

Like the poet, we desire to live in such a place. The image of fire also evokes the words of Jeremiah 20:9, "Is not my word like fire?" Fire has the power to consume and renew life. Jeremiah speaks of a "fire in [his] bones" so overpowering that he can no longer hold it within himself (20:9). The image indicates that the Bible contains potent words for any age. This is Volume 2 in the 
Heart of the Restoration Series.

Table of Contents:
1. Rediscovering the Word of God
2. The Bible as the Word of God
3. The Redeeming (W)hole of Scripture
4. Knowing Our Story
5. The Gorgeous Mosaic of Scripture
6. Dancing to the Tune of Torah
7. Reading Scripture with Ancient Eyes
8. Searching for Theological Significance
9. Training in Godliness
10. An Ending - and a Beginning
Appendices:
     1. How to Build a Library
     2. Recommended Reference Works
