Excerpt


Following the intruiging ideas raised in Brian McLaren's bestselling A New Kind of Christian, Tony Jones has written an engaging exploration of what this new kind of Christianity looks like. Writing "dispatches" on the thought and practice of those within the Emerging Church, he offers an in-depth look at this new "third way" of faith - its origins, theology, and its views on truth, Scripture and interpretation, along with the movement's hopeful and life-giving sense of community. With the depth of theological expertise and broad perspective he has gained as a pastor, writer, and as a leader of this movement, Jones invites readers into the Emergent conversation and offers a new way forward for Christians in a postmodern world. With journalistic narrative as well as authoritative reflection, he provides fascinating examples and first hand stories that mark this new and revitalized incarnation of Christianity.

Excerpt


The obscure French monk known as Brother Lawrence was a servant of God who spent most of days following Jesus by serving in a kitchen. Brother Lawrence's discipline and servanthood sets an example for all of us by demonstrating how to recapture the intimate friendship with Christ that was shared by the first disciples. He achieved a concentration on God that was rooted in the everyday practicalities of life. Tony Jones brings his rapport with early Christianity to this new edition of a great work. His thoughtful and challenging comments bring the words of Brother Lawrence into historical context and offer spiritual encouragement. Take a few hours to read this book. You'll never look at your life the same way again.

Excerpt


Our Sunday school teachers taught us to "read your Bible, pray every day and you'll grow, grow, grow!" Surely their advice was correct, if not comprehensive. In The Sacred Way Tony Jones explores additional spiritual practices, such as the Jesus Prayer, Spiritual Direction and Pilgrimage that Christians have used to grow closer to God. If you are desperate for a fuller communion with God and interested in the spiritual pathways of the saints, you will find The Sacred Way to be a trustworthy guide.

Excerpt


For 1500 years, Christians have used contemplative Bible study or "Lectio Divina" as a way to tap into the power and vitality of God's Word. For ancient Christians such as St. Augustine, St. Francis, and others, it was a pillar of one's daily relationship with God.

In Divine Intervention, youth pastor Tony Jones helps students engage their faith through the four steps of Lectio Divina:

  • lectio (reading)
  • meditatio (meditation)
  • oratio (prayer)
  • contemplatio (contemplation)
Includes 12 Lectio Divina exercises with passages from The Message Bible.

Author Tony Jones ground-breaking and critically acclaimed debut book, Postmodern Youth Ministry, was primarily a theoretical look at how youth workers can operate in the volatile postmodern cultural landscape. Now, after a sabbatical of on-site research, Jones has gathered examples of how classic of how classic spiritual exercises are being implemented in both the United States and Great Britain. Jones visited innovative British youth workers, the Youth Ministry and Spirituality Project at San Francisco Theological Seminary, the Princeton Youth Ministry Forum, and Sabbath: A Spiritual Retreat for Youth Workers. The result of his investigation is this practical and anecdotal paradigm for youth workers interested in contemplative and activist approaches to spirituality.

Excerpt


The Pilgrim’s Progress is arguably the most-read book in the English language after the Bible. This new, contemporary translation of John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress retains the author’s enchanting prose. Helpful annotations throughout invite a new generation of readers to join Christian and his companions, Faithful and Hopeful, as they travel from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City.
 
This is no pie-in-the-sky story. The Christian life is hard. There’s no easy passage from our first experience of God’s love to that final reward of entrance into heaven. There are obstacles and temptations at every turn. But, there is also help along the way, and the journey is gloriously worthwhile! With introduction and notes by Tony Jones.
