Book Summary:

How have millions of American Christians come to measure spiritual progress in terms of their financial status and physical well-being? How has the movement variously called Word of Faith, Health and Wealth, Name It and Claim It, or simply prosperity gospel come to dominate much of our contemporary religious landscape? Kate Bowler's Blessed is the first book to fully explore the origins, unifying themes, and major figures of a burgeoning movement that now claims millions of followers in America. Bowler traces the roots of the prosperity gospel: from the touring mesmerists, metaphysical sages, pentecostal healers, business oracles, and princely prophets of the early 20th century; through mid-century positive thinkers like Norman Vincent Peale and revivalists like Oral Roberts and Kenneth Hagin; to today's hugely successful prosperity preachers. Bowler focuses on such contemporary figures as Creflo Dollar, pastor of Atlanta's 30,000-member World Changers Church International; Joel Osteen, known as "the smiling preacher," with a weekly audience of seven million; T. D. Jakes, named by Time magazine one of America's most influential new religious leaders; Joyce Meyer, evangelist and women's empowerment guru; and many others. At almost any moment, day or night, the American public can tune in to these preachers-on TV, radio, podcasts, and in their megachurches-to hear the message that God desires to bless them with wealth and health. Bowler offers an interpretive framework for scholars and general readers alike to understand the diverse expressions of Christian abundance as a cohesive movement bound by shared understandings and common goals.

Book Summary:

"When you bless," says Peter Lord, "dramatic, miraculous changes take place." In Bless and Be Blessed, this author and pastor shares how we often neglect to bless others until after death. But it is much more useful to give a good or well-meaning word to our loved ones while they are still alive. Coworkers, children, spouses, and friends all need uplifting messages when they can hear, receive, and be transformed by them. With wisdom, personal anecdotes, and hands-on exercises, Lord teaches readers everything they need to know to deliver powerful words with life-changing impact today. He discusses the scriptural basis for blessing others, describes how readers can receive their own blessing from God, and teaches them to weave the practice of blessing into their everyday lives.

Book Summary:

The prevailing attitude in modern medicine is that illness should not exist. Consequently, millions of research dollars pour each year into medical science and technology in the hope of eradicating various sicknesses and diseases. Patients and doctors alike suffer the terrible consequences of this impossible quest for material perfection. Yet, there is an alternate view--that human beings and human evolution are great enough to include "illness" as an essential part of existence. In the first part of Blessed by Illness, the author traces the history of our changing concept of healing, from the so-called temple sleep of ancient Egypt--when spiritual science tells us that human beings still had a living connection with the spiritual hierarchies--through the herbal lore of ancient Greece and the healings of Christ, to the rise of modern medicine, based primarily on treating symptoms. The practice of modern medicine focuses merely on removing discernable symptoms and ailments. The author, however, asserts that this does not really heal at all. Rather, true healing considers the whole human being. And, to do this, doctors must learn the language of our natural, healing life forces, which affect not only the body, but also nature and the greater cosmos. From this perspective, illness is actually a gift, a blessing that urges both patient and doctor to work together with our illnesses for the sake of something infinitely greater--true healing. Blessed by Illness is a powerful introduction to "alternative" methods of healing.

“Child of God, you are going to love this book! You’ll find yourself nodding, underlining, and shouting ‘Amen!’ all the way through. How to Be Blessed and Highly Favored is full of God’s unchanging truth and Michelle’s real-world wisdom, wrapped around the story of one of the ‘good girls’ of the Bible: Mary, the mother of Jesus. Trust me…you will be blessed!” –Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Bad Girls of the Bible Prepare to crawl into God’s lap and experience His highest blessings as your own. A popular phrase often heard after inquiring about someone’s welfare is the enthusiastic response, “Blessed and highly favored!” Yet many of us–even those who use this expression readily–don’t really lead a lifestyle that reflects God’s blessings. It’s not that such blessings aren’t ours to receive; the Bible clearly teaches that it is the Father’ s perfect will to give us the kingdom. The problem is that we don’t know how to fully access His generous gifts. What does God require of those He chooses to use and bless? Join Michelle McKinney Hammond as she takes a fresh, spirited look at Mary, the mother of Jesus, and shows us how to: • appeal to God’s heart • remain sensitive to His voice • believe Him for the impossible • submit to and rest in His plan • live before Him with a servant’s heart Get Ready to Receive God’s Extra-Dimensional Blessings!

Missy Robertson knew that marrying duck-hunting family man Jase Robertson would be an adventure . . . and she was up to the challenge. Their life together was good (even after Jase grew the beard). They had two children, worked hard to help build the thriving Duck Commander business, and loved and served God. But after a difficult and risky pregnancy, their daughter, Mia, was born with a cleft palate—a serious condition requiring multiple cranial and facial surgeries. As their baby struggled to breathe, and Missy and Jase faced a life that suddenly looked very different than the one they’d planned, they found themselves staring down one of life’s biggest questions: Where is God in all this pain? This is the Robertsons’ story. It’s for anyone scared and overwhelmed by a problem they can’t fix; anyone lost and searching for a way through. You’ll meet the young girl Mia who captured A&E’s Duck Dynasty viewers’ hearts, and learn how Missy and Jase have raised her and their sons to be faithful, confident, and secure in who they are. You’ll be inspired by how the Robertson family stuck by each other through the hardest times. And you’ll discover that God’s blessings are bigger than you ever dreamed—and there when you need them the most.

Book Summary:

A great career, a wonderful marriage, a beautiful home—the classic makings of the American dream and a blessed life. Jenny Day Jones has all of these things but, after a spiritual crisis, realized that material blessings were preventing her from saying “yes” to God’s plan for her life. With humor and rare authenticity, Too Blessed to Say Yes uses the Beatitudes and the story of the rich young ruler to warn against the pursuit of personal success and reveals how to never be too blessed to say “yes” to God. “Jenny Day Jones tackles issues like fear and failure, performance Christianity, radical generosity and risk-taking. She challenges us to continually and deliberately empty ourselves and say ‘yes’ to God.” —Rob Morris, Love 146 “It seems blessings have become the ultimate pursuit, instead of pursuing the One who blesses. In a beautiful cascade of chapters, Jones shares how we can replace our inner need for comfort and material accolades with the freedom of maturity, as we redefine our pursuit of happiness.”—Gari Meacham, Author

Book Summary:

Susan Vogt knew she had far more stuff in her closets than she needed. So, for Lent one year, Susan took action: she gave away one thing a day for forty days. But what happened during that penitential period surprised her; she became so addicted to identifying unnecessary things in her life that she continued the practice for a full year. Then she began letting go of other baggage—some physical, some emotional—and found that, far from feeling poorer, she felt freer and more fulfilled than ever before. A spiritual place had opened that allowed Susan to unclutter her mind and deepen her faith. Blessed by Less offers encouragement and inspiration for all who are burdened down by “things” in their homes and hearts but don’t quite know how to begin the process of letting go. Susan includes tips for beginners and challenges for those who’ve been simplifying for years. Rather than making readers feel guilty for all the stuff they’ve accumulated, Susan gently nudges them to see all that they have to gain—physically, emotionally, and most of all spiritually—by living lightly. Practical from start to finish, Blessed by Less shows how one woman’s journey into a simpler, less cluttered life can also be our journey and how taking a spiritual perspective on the matter can lead to abundant blessings we would have otherwise missed.

Who could better fully realize (and lead us to understand and embrace!) the true depth of meaning enfolded within the Angelic Salutation to Mary (the "Hail Mary") than the "Seraphic Doctor," St. Bonaventure? In this masterwork of Marian spirituality, Bonaventure guides us line by line through this treasured Catholic prayer, revealing many remarkable, even "mystical" dimensions of Mary's unique blessing and unsurpassed Grace – a Grace which, as St. Jerome writes (quoted in this volume by Bonaventure) "... nature possesses not, which custom uses not, which eclipses reason, which the mind of man is unable to compass, which makes the heavens tremble, and strikes dumb the earth, which amazes every inhabitant of Heaven, all this was divinely announced by Gabriel to Mary, and was fulfilled in Christ." THE MIRROR OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY is every Catholic's indispensable guide, not only to a better understanding of the "Hail Mary" prayer, but to a deeper personal devotion to the Mother of God.

Book Summary:

“The Blessed One” has all the drama, excitement, and surreal attraction of a great fictional novel. However, in reality it is simply a recollection of the thrillingly traumatic, yet numbingly slow decade following a massive closed-head injury- by the author, Daniel Austhof. “The Blessed One” is written as a letter by Daniel on his 31st birthday to himself at any given point in the future. This was written to himself to serve as his reminder of the trials he has faced, adversity overcome, God Within, and how Blessed he was even back then and no doubt is at the time which he reads this letter. “The Blessed One” focuses on the fact that in spite of circumstance, we as humans are greatly Blessed, and possess the awesome ability to influence Perception- like seeing the rosebud instead of the thorn, Blessings instead of pain, Grace instead of trauma!

Book Summary:

"It was through the Blessed Virgin Mary that Jesus came into the world, and it is also through her that he must reign in the world..." With this uncompromising declaration, St. Louis-Marie de Montfort launched TRUE DEVOTION TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN, his widely-influential 17th Century Magnum Opus of Marian spirituality. The book inspired a groundswell of ardor for the Holy Mother of God that had a powerful impact on Catholic spirituality, and which culminated in the foundation of the missionary society "The Company of Mary" and the contemplative order "The Daughters of Wisdom." "I declare with the saints," St. Louis writes in this volume, "Mary is the earthly paradise of Jesus Christ the new Adam, where he became man by the power of the Holy Spirit, in order to accomplish in her wonders beyond our understanding. She is the vast and divine world of God where unutterable marvels and beauties are to be found...." St. Louis-Marie de Montfort was canonized in 1947 by Pope Pius XII.
