The Corinthian epistles give us a picture of a “mega” revival of a church in Corinth that had grown to about sixty or seventy thousand converts in four years and the problems associated with it. Rev. Caram shows how the Corinthian revival is a figure of the revival that is coming in the last days, as a net that is cast into the sea, wherein will be gathered all kinds, and the great need for spiritual mothers and fathers who are prepared to lead the church on to maturity.

This book investigates why, unlike in the early centuries, the ethical behavior of Christians today is so little different from that of non-Christians. It does this by first reviewing the teachings of Jesus about how Christians are to live and the positive response of early Christians to these teachings. The major portion of the book then documents how the rise of asceticism and the proliferation of church law came to eclipse Jesus' teachings of serving others through unselfish love. It reviews how Chrysostom, Augustine, Luther, and others tried to return the church to the New Testament way of life. The book reaches two conclusions: Christians today prefer to live by only avoiding the gross evils forbidden by the Ten Commandments rather than by Jesus' all-inclusive New Commandment of loving one another as he loved us. They are also willing to offer God the piety of churchly activity, but what God also asks, a life of goodness serving one's fellowman, they feel is just asking too much.

In 1 Corinthians 12:31, St. Paul exhorts the early Christians in Corinth to follow "a still more excellent way." The "way" he is speaking of is love—genuine, selfless love. For Paul, the ultimate meaning and perfect example of this love is found solely in the crucified, risen, and reigning Christ. With unwavering devotion, Paul's post-conversion life was focused on one goal: to point people to Jesus so they, too, could experience the unsurpassed joy that Paul himself had come to know through his Lord. A Still More Excellent Way encourages and inspires readers through fifty-two brief selections from Paul's writings. Each Scripture selection—short enough to be easily memorized—is followed by a story or meditation that supports the verses. And although the apostle Paul evangelized in the first-century Roman world, author Joseph Durepos uses plenty of twenty-first-century cultural references to make the material highly relevant for people today. Equally appropriate for personal reflection or small-group study, A Still More Excellent Way is an excellent opportunity for anyone to draw closer to Jesus through the unabashedly Christ-centered message of St. Paul.

And Yet I Show You a More Excellent Way

What does it mean to exemplify Christian love? In a society that is more self-centered than God-centered, it is hard to locate those who are demonstrating godly love to others, with pure hearts. However, when we believe Jesus is our salvation from sin, we are given help from the Holy Spirit to express this love to others. In the third book by author Tom Hanson, And Yet I Show You a More Excellent Way, understanding the Word of God, for what agape love from God is compared to human love, is sought. Tom provides biblical commentary on what God considers agape love, which is enhanced when a believer allows the Holy Spirit, the Helper, to come into their lives and relationships and re-direct them as vessels of God. With God at the forefront of our relationships with Jesus, guided by the Holy Spirit, we will embody Christian love to others.

Validating Committed Partnerships: a Still More Excellent Way

A New Relational Paradigm Supported by the High Way of God's Love and Justice

Although written from a biblical/Christian perspective this book's theme has practical value for everyone. It presents a new relational paradigm supported by love, justice, mutuality, and other spiritual qualities. The author believes scripture teaches that all human beings are created to live in fulfilling relationships even those who are homosexual. People of faith, family, & community are urged to support same gender couples by validating their committed partnership; however, nearly 50% of American citizens and church members do not support legalizing same gender marriage. This historical perspective on marriage reveals marriage has experienced considerable positive change and practice during the past 75 years and needs to be redefined. Until the 20th century procreation (be fruitful and multiply) was marriage's major purpose. While procreation remains important, mutuality has become the major emphasis. As written in Genesis 2:18 (NRSV), God sought a partner for the man. In many marriages partnership has replaced patriarchy, providing an enriching relational experience in family life. The author presents a new relational paradigm which includes both heterosexual and homosexual couples seeking a lifelong committed relationship. Marriage of male and female and the union of same gender couples will share the title, partnership safeguarded by the same legal standards. For male and female, their title will be a marital partnership; for same gender couples their title will be a same gender partnership.
