Think: Figure Out What You Believe and Why

Whether a friend’s questions stump you or you’re having doubts of your own, it helps to know what you believe and why. There’s no need to be afraid to ask the tough questions. When it comes to your faith, there’s no such thing as a dumb question and no topic should be off-limits. God wants you to understand your faith so you can help others understand it, too. In Think, you’ll find 20 straightforward studies that explore what the Bible says about controversial and difficult topics. You’ll discover why the Bible is worth believing, you’ll find out how you can be sure Jesus was more than a nice guy and good teacher, and you’ll see that the Bible really does have relevant things to say about life today. God wants to give you solid reasons to believe, along with the know-how to explain your faith without sounding intolerant or arrogant. So dig in and be sure about what you believe."

Think, Act, Be Like Jesus: Becoming a New Person in Christ

by Randy Frazee Robert Noland

The Bible teaches that the goal of the Christian life is to become like Jesus—for our own personal growth and for the sake of others. Every believer needs to ask three big questions: What do I believe? What should I do? And who am I becoming? In Think, Act, Be Like Jesus, bestselling author and pastor Randy Frazee helps readers grasp the vision of the Christian life and get started on the journey of discipleship. After unfolding the revolutionary dream of Jesus and showing how our lives fit into the big picture of what God is doing in the world, Frazee walks readers through thirty short chapters exploring the ten core beliefs, ten core practices, and ten core virtues that help disciples to think, act, and be more like Jesus Christ. This compelling new book can be used in conjunction with the 30-week all-church Believe campaign or read separately as an individual study. Either way, readers will deepen their understanding of what it means to not just know the Story of God, but to live it.

Think Again: Relief from the Burden of Introspection

by Marty Machowski

Being mindful about who you are and what you are doing isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Evaluating yourself is necessary and can lead to positive change. But what about the dark side of introspection? Do you ever feel weighed down and exhausted by your own self analysis? Perhaps you made a mistake, said a careless word, or even messed up big time. Now you can’t get it out of your mind. You keep revisiting what happened. Your mind circles around the event, fruitlessly trying to somehow make the outcome different–so that you don’t feel embarrassment, shame, and regret. Jared Mellinger, a pastor and self-confessed struggler with introspection holds out the hope of the gospel for those who, like him, overdose on introspection. Only truly understanding the gospel can rescue us from false guilt, fruitless self-examination, and self-accusation. The only long-term solution to thinking too much about ourselves is when our attention is drawn away from ourselves and Jesus fills our mind’s eye.

Think and Act Anew: How Poverty in America Affects Us All and What We Can Do About It

by Larry Snyder

A call to action that challenges government, business, and individuals to reexamine poverty in America and to devise new, sustainable solutions. In Think and Act Anew, Larry Snyder, president of Catholic Charities USA, asserts that poverty in America can be reduced or eliminated only if we take a fresh look at "the poor" and understand that there are as many causes of poverty as there are people. Looking at the lives of the millions of people who rely on Catholic Charities agencies for their basic needs, like housing, food, and healthcare, Snyder shows how the recent economic meltdown has affected Americans from every walk of life. Think and Act Anew also includes portraits of those who have fallen into poverty, such as a Tucson family that lost everything in the mortgage crisis and a life-long construction worker from Little Rock now on food stamps. It also includes examples of individuals, organizations, and local governments who are taking a new look at how we serve the poor, such as a celebrity chef in Washington, D. C. , who uses his talents to feed the hungry and to train them for jobs in the food industry, and innovative programs like the Harlem Children's Zone. Snyder draws on Catholic social teaching-particularly Pope Benedict XVI's Caritas in Veritate that declares the inherent dignity of all human beings and maintains that charity and justice are the core principles on which economic decisions must be based.

Think Christianly: Looking at the Intersection of Faith and Culture

by Darrell Bock Jonathan Morrow

Think Christianly is about seizing the opportunities we have every day to speak the life Jesus offers into our culture. Tragically, many such opportunities pass us by unclaimed—either because we don’t notice them or we have not prepared ourselves to enter into them. And those around us seem to grow increasingly unwilling to hear anything the church has to say. Jonathan Morrow helps church leaders envision and implement ways for their congregations to “think Christianly” about contemporary questions and to speak in informed, engaging ways. Morrow explores many of the important issues that Christians often hear raised with regard to faith—questions about who Jesus was, the good and bad of religion, pain and evil in the world, the reliability of the Bible, sexuality and intimate relationships, and hope for change, among others. The life and faith issues that Think Christianly addresses lead to cultural moments where Christianity and contemporary culture intersect. This book will help churches take vital steps toward cultivating compassion and competence in speaking faithfully to a questioning world.

Shetty grew up in a family where you could become one of three things—a doctor, a lawyer, or a failure. His family was convinced he had chosen option three: instead of attending his college graduation ceremony, he headed to India to become a monk, to meditate every day for four to eight hours, and devote his life to helping others. After three years, one of his teachers told him that he would have more impact on the world if he left the monk&’s path to share his experience and wisdom with others. Heavily in debt, and with no recognizable skills on his résumé, he moved back home in north London with his parents. Shetty reconnected with old school friends—many working for some of the world&’s largest corporations—who were experiencing tremendous stress, pressure, and unhappiness, and they invited Shetty to coach them on well-being, purpose, and mindfulness. Since then, Shetty has become one of the world&’s most popular influencers. In 2017, he was named in the Forbes magazine 30-under-30 for being a game-changer in the world of media. In 2018, he had the #1 video on Facebook with over 360 million views. His social media following totals over 38 million, he has produced over 400 viral videos which have amassed more than 8 billion views, and his podcast, On Purpose, is consistently ranked the world&’s #1 Health and Wellness podcast. In this inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Combining ancient wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, Think Like a Monk reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits, and access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us. He transforms abstract lessons into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve relationships, and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can—and should—think like a monk.

Think Like Jesus

by George Barna

Think No Evil

by Jonas Beiler Shawn Smucker

THE TRUE STORY OF OCTOBER 2, 2006, WHEN CHARLES ROBERTS ENTERED AN AMISH SCHOOLHOUSE, bound and shot ten schoolgirls, and then committed suicide, stunned all who read the headlines or watched the drama unfold on television screens. Somehow, the senseless violence seemed all the more horrific against the backdrop of horse-and-buggy funeral processions and scenes of wide-eyed innocent children clad in bonnets and suspenders. But perhaps even more startling than the violence was the quiet yet powerful response of the Amish community offering unconditional forgiveness to the murderer and reaching out to his family with baskets of food and warm welcomes into their homes. Could such forgiveness be genuine, truly heartfelt? Surely there must be simmering rage behind those peaceful words. Jonas Beiler wondered. He had grown up in that very Amish community. His own pain of losing his daughter in a tragic accident years before resurfaced, and the lingering shadows of other life tragedies loomed darker. As he met with the grieving families, he could see how devastated and broken they felt, and yet he was drawn to the strength he saw in them. Outsiders, too, had difficulty understanding the rock-solid faith of the people in this Amish community. How could they forgive someone who killed their innocent daughters? How could they reach out and embrace his family, expressing unconditional love for them in these circumstances? Letters from around the world poured in, asking these universal questions in the face of suffering. And so began Jonas Beiler's journey into this story -- the story behind the headlines, behind the farmhouse doors, around the lantern-lit kitchen tables, at the local market, and alongside the tiny coffins. His quest is now yours to read. His discoveries yours to consider. Walk with those closest to the scene: an Amish grandfather, an ambulance driver, a surviving Amish schoolgirl, and volunteer firefighters. Even look on as the community demolishes the school where the murders took place and builds the New Hope School that holds no memories of bloodstained walls. Think No Evil is the first insider account of the tragic events, the personal victories and the daily Amish life in Nickel Mines, written by a native of the Amish community who still lives and works where most of his relatives are Old Order Amish. Against the rich and fascinating backdrop of Amish culture, Beiler reveals the best of the human spirit in the midst of the worst, and leaves us all drawn heavenward, the richer for it.

Think on These Things

by Jiddu Krishnamurti

'The material contained in this volume was originally presented in the form of talks to students, teachers and parents in India, but its keen penetration and lucid simplicity will be deeply meaningful to thoughtful people everywhere, of all ages, and in every walk of life. Krishnamurti examines with characteristic objectivity and insight the expressions of what we are pleased to call our culture, our education, religion, politics and tradition; and he throws much light on such basic emotions as ambition, greed and envy, the desire for security and the lust for power - all of which he shows to be deteriorating factors in human society.' From the Editor's Note 'Krishnamurti's observations and explorations of modern man's estate are penetrating and profound, yet given with a disarming simplicity and directness. To listen to him or to read his thoughts is to face oneself and the world with an astonishing morning freshness.' Anne Marrow Lindbergh

Think This Not That: Rewiring Your Brain to Eliminate Toxic Thinking

by Rite A. Schulte

What we think about radically affects us body, soul, and spirit. Contrary to popular belief, circumstances do not determine our mood. Instead, our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors flow from our interpretations of events. In the mind, we give meaning to troubling events, and that meaning causes us emotional pain and turmoil. Philippians 4:8 challenges us to think about what is true, right, pure, and excellent, but it is not simply a charge to think positively. How we think actually changes how we respond to crises and difficult situations. Drawing on her experience as a clinical psychotherapist and a trauma survivor, Rita Schulte gives a prescription for better health and well-being that combines faith and science. Through a strong connection to God, mindfulness techniques, and target exercises, you can change toxic thinking patterns and rewire your brain to achieve optimum mental and physical health.

Think Your Troubles Away

Thinking About God: First Steps in Philosophy

by Gregory E. Ganssle

Can we really think about God? Can we prove God?s existence? What about faith? Are there good reasons to believe in the Christian God? What about evil? Can we really know with our finite minds anything for sure about a transcendent God? Can we avoid thinking about God? The real problem, says philosopher Gregory E. Ganssle, is not whether we can think about God, but whether we will think well or poorly about God. Admittedly there is a lot of bad thinking going around. But Ganssle, who teaches students, wants to help us think better, especially about God. He thinks philosophy can actually help. In the first part of this book Ganssle lays the groundwork for clear and careful thinking, providing us an introductory guide to doing philosophy. In the second part Ganssle then takes us through the process of thinking well about God in particular. He asks us to consider whether there are good reasons to believe that God exists. He thinks there are! In a third part Ganssle addresses the thorny issue of the existence both of God and of evil. He thinks there?s a valid way through this problem. In the final part Ganssle helps us thread our way through questions like: What is God like? What can God do? What can God know? How does God communicate? He thinks that there are some clear answers to these questions, at least if you?re talking about the God of Christianity. If you're looking for your first book for thinking clearly and carefully about God, then you'll appreciate the good thinking found in this book.
