✏How to See the Holy Spirit Angels and Demons Book Summary : Are God, angels, and demons really invisible? Or can the spirits be seen with human eyes, through the lens of Church Ethics? The gift of discerning of spirits is indispensible to the study of church ethics. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), wrote two sets of Rules for Discerning of Spirits in his Spiritual Exercises in the early 1500s. He taught how the church can receive from God the gift to see otherwise invisible angels, demons, and the Holy Spirit. Ignatius' views were influenced by John Cassian, Jacobus de Voragine, Ludolph of Saxony, and Thomas à Kempis. Ignatius' Rules are exegeted in dialogue with contemporary scholars Karl Rahner, Hugo Rahner, Piet Penning de Vries, Jules Toner, and Timothy Gallagher, and applied to one study of ecclesial ethics in the narrative theology of Samuel Wells. A four-step Ignatian pneumato-ethical method is developed, which any analyst can follow to see the spirits, by consolation/desolation, consent, manifestation, and pneumato-ethics. This method revolutionizes how we study ecclesiology, soteriology, missiology/world religions, liturgy, worship, Eucharist, hermeneutics, homiletics, pastoral counseling, church history, and politics. The spirits are not invisible at all. They can be clearly discerned through the lens of ecclesial ethics.

✏From Jerusalem to You Book Summary : From Jerusalem to You shows and tells how the Gospel spread from Jerusalem to you. With the help of thirty-six maps, you will be able to trace the exciting story of the spread of Christianity and find your place in that story. When Jesus predicted the spread of his kingdom, he told the parable of the mustard seed and plant. Beginning as a tiny seed, it rapidly grows to be a large bush that covers the ground. It even welcomes wild birds to come and make their nests in it. Nearly two thousand years later, we can now look back and trace the growth of Christianity from that tiny seed in Jerusalem to becoming the global tree of today with all its many branches. We need to take our place as a leaf in that tree and then trace our heritage through its branches, trunk, and, finally, to its original seed. Only then will our life gain purpose, and only then will history have meaning. Taking this trip through history, you will meet many courageous and dedicated followers of Jesus who dedicated their lives so that you also can be a part of God's global kingdom. You will also hear the voice of Jesus saying, "Go to the peoples of all the world and share the good news with everyone, and I will always be with you."

✏One Faith Many Transitions Book Summary : Church history reads like a wartime romance tragedy with the promise of a happy ending. For the church is called Christ's Bride' in Scripture. One Faith Many Transitions snapshots the pathos, defeat and victory of the heroes and villains in historic Christianity. It exposes world-views that have both aided and distorted the faith over the centuries, and how God's Spirit brings churches back into living relationship with him. It explores why Christians thought and acted as they did. Written in a way that takes the Bible seriously as a message system from the living God, One Faith analyzes historic ideas and events from a basically Evangelical perspective. It will boost the faith and historic understanding of any Christian who believes the Bible really is the word of God and the standard for church authority. It also highlights many of the crucial world-view issues Christians face today and how they arose.
