El matrimonio sí importa: Tres aspectos claves del pacto matrimonial

by Tony Evans

Los matrimonios de hoy se están deteriorando a un ritmo alarmante. En el año 2003, el 43,7% de las madres con custodia de los hijos y el 56,2% de los padres con custodia estaban separados o bien divorciados (EE.UU. Oficina del Censo). Uno podría preguntarse: "¿Por qué fracasan tantos matrimonios?". Según el pastor y maestro Tony Evans, nuestros matrimonios se deterioran no porque ya no nos llevemos bien, sino porque hemos perdido de vista el propósito y la prosperidad del pacto matrimonial.El matrimonio sí importa examina la naturaleza del pacto, o acuerdo, al que accedemos el día de nuestra boda. Este librito proporciona los fundamentos para los libritos Solo para esposos y Solo para esposas. Con un estilo ameno, Evans busca en las Escrituras para definir tres aspectos clave del pacto matrimonial: su origen, su orden y su operación. Reina el caos cuando tratamos de hacer las cosas a nuestra manera. Se hace patente la necesidad de conformarnos a las normas bíblicas del matrimonio. Permita que la enseñanza práctica y amena de Tony Evans le convenza que El matrimonio sí importa.

Just One Damned Thing After Another

by Jodi Taylor

"History is just one damned thing after another" - Arnold Toynbee A madcap new slant on history that seems to be everyone's cup of tea... Behind the seemingly innocuous façade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet. Meet the disaster-magnets of St Mary's Institute of Historical Research as they ricochet around History. Their aim is to observe and document - to try and find the answers to many of History's unanswered questions...and not to die in the process. But one wrong move and History will fight back - to the death. And, as they soon discover - it's not just History they're fighting. Follow the catastrophe curve from eleventh-century London to World War I, and from the Cretaceous Period to the destruction of the Great Library at Alexandria. For wherever Historians go, chaos is sure to follow in their wake ...

A Way to God: Thomas Merton's Creation Spirituality Journey

by Matthew Fox

This unique reflection was prompted by an invitation Matthew Fox received to speak on the centennial of Thomas Merton's birth. Fox says that much of the trouble he's gotten into -- such as being excommunicated in 1993 from the Dominican Order by Cardinal Ratzinger (who later became Pope Benedict) -- was because of Thomas Merton, who sent Fox to Paris to complete a doctoral program in philosophy. Fox found that Merton's journals, poetry, and religious writings revealed a deeply ecumenical philosophy and a contemplative life experience similar to that of Meister Eckhart, the fourteenth-century mystic/theologian who inspired Fox's own "creation spirituality." It is little surprise to find Fox and Merton to be kindred spirits, but the intersections Fox finds with Eckhart are intellectually profound, spiritually enlightening, and delightfully engaging.
