What if, suddenly, Jesus appeared on the streets of your city? That´s the scenario of Jesus Is Here, Charles M. Sheldon´s sequel to his classic novel In His Steps, the book that introduced the world to WWJW: ´´What would Jesus do?´´ Years ago, members of the First Church of Raymond pledged to consider ´´What would Jesus do?´´ before taking any action, however large or small. Now, the Reverend Henry Maxwell and his congregation find themselves delving even deeper into the Christian life by experiencing the very presence of Jesus in their midst. Jesus Is Here is a challenging, thought-provoking story, a reminder that the story of Jesus did not end on a cross two millennia ago but continues today. Join the church members of Raymond as they learn that Jesus is alive, here and now. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adams Morgan.

If you put aside what you think you know about Jesus and approach the Gospels as though for the first time, something remarkable happens: Jesus emerges as a teacher of the transformation of consciousness. Cynthia Bourgeault is a masterful guide to Jesus´ vision and to the traditional contemplative practices you can use to experience the heart of his teachings for yourself. 1. Language: English.

In the strange us-versus-them world of the ´90s Christian subculture, your faith was measured by how many WWJD bracelets you wore and whether or not you´d ´´kissed dating good-bye´´. Evangelical poster child Addie Zierman wore three WWJD bracelets, led two Bible studies, and listened exclusively to Christian rock. She was ´´on fire for God´´, unaware that the flame of her faith was dwindling until it burned entirely out. With candor and transparency, Addie chronicles her journey through church culture, first love, and her entrance - unprepared and angry - into marriage. When she washes out of church and nearly her marriage on a sea of tequila and depression, she isn´t sure if she´ll ever go back. When We Were on Fire is a funny, heartbreaking story of untangling oneself from cliché in search of a faith worth embracing. It´s a story for anyone who has ever felt alone in a crowded church. For the cynic. The doubter. The former Jesus freak struggling with the complexity of life. It´s a story about the slow work of returning to love, Jesus, and (perhaps toughest of all) his imperfect followers. And in the end, it´s about what lasts when nothing else seems worth keeping.
