I am the treasurer of Saint Anne and all Saints, Vauxhall, and have qualified for The Diocesan Certificate in Biblical and Theological Studies. My intention here is to outline what the words of Jesus evoke in me as an ordinary Christian. Having prayed before the task that was in front of me I hope I have some inspiring comments to make that will be instructive to fellow Christians and even unbelievers. The following verse of a favourite hymn, popular with many, hopefully may be applicable during the process of reading this book as Jesus is very much alive and present in my life generally. I heard the voice of Jesus say: 'Come unto me and rest; Lay down, Thou weary one, lay down Thy head upon my breast.' I came to Jesus as I was, Weary and worn and sad, I found in Him a resting-place, And He has made me glad. I hope my comments will result in a closer relationship of the reader with Jesus, and that the end result will be peace and hope for the future as Christians.

The good Samaritan, the prodigal son, the lost sheep--more than one third of all that Jesus taught is found in the form of parables. Now from J. Barrie Shepherd comes a fresh, positive approach to the best known and loved of Jesus' teachings. This unique collection of meditations offers morning and evening reflections for thirty-one days--each centered on one of the parables of Jesus. Every prayer is an insightful and inspirational response that applies the truth of the parable to daily life. An excellent idea for personal reading, this diary includes a full page of space opposite each prayer that can be used for writing notes, feelings, thoughts, and reactions. Ideal as devotional aids, these perceptive meditations are also a perfect resource for groups studying the parables.
Offers Christian interpretations of the basic philosophies embodied in the Peanuts cartoon strip
Following his retirement after twenty-five years of medical practice, he proceeded to writing the Sunday bulletins of the cathedral and essays on a variety of topics of interest to his fellow Orthodox parishioners. He was urged by the protopresbyter Steven Zorzos, the current dean of the cathedral, to publish his writings as books. This is the first in which he provides examples of how he has experienced and interpreted his reading of the Holy Scriptures. He provides examples of what is available within them that are frequently overlooked by many readers. Furthermore, the English translations of the Bible are filled with many errors, which can only be clarified by finding the most appropriate English words, among the many available, for translating the true meaning of some Greeks words in the original New Testament and the Septuagint. Many examples of this phenomenon are provided in this volume.
Meditations on Life and Living...Born Out of Love for God are basic but simple testimonials in story format with Scripture as the catalyst and theme for their birth. How many times have you sat alone somewhere just reflecting on the simplicity of life...how blessed you are, from where you came compared to where you are now. Author, Elois Wilform-Malcolm, brings these everyday things to life. It will seem as though you are right there by her side, witnessing what she does in her own mind, seeing, feeling, understanding her point of view as she correlates biblical Scriptures into her reflections and how your understanding of Scripture can be a driving force for you own life. Meditations on Life and Living...Born Out of Love for God will allow you to relive your past, reflect on the glory of your present and marvel at your future when you realize the joy, happiness, contentment and peace of mind you attain through a life with God. You will see where you were before salvation, understand who you are in your salvation and strive to be even better through salvation. You will see how Scriptures are being brought to "light" through everyday life situations. Wait till you read catchy titles such as: Throw Down Your Rocks, The Fragrance of Christ, or Wake Up Everybody. You will find excitement in the directions each testimonial meditation will take you. Reading these meditation will bring about purpose for studying the Bible, which is not to know the Bible but to know God. The Bible is not a book of rules but a book of principles which are clearly and simply brought out through these meditations. We get to know God through His Word, His spirit, our experiences and through prayer. May you be blessed!!
