Explanation of the Book:

By turns heartbreaking, hilarious, and utterly human, The House of God is a mesmerizing and provocative novel about what it really takes to become a doctor. “The raunchy, troubling, and hilarious novel that turned into a cult phenomenon. Singularly compelling…brutally honest.”—The New York Times Struggling with grueling hours and sudden life-and-death responsibilities, Basch and his colleagues, under the leadership of their rule-breaking senior resident known only as the Fat Man, must learn not only how to be fine doctors but, eventually, good human beings. A phenomenon ever since it was published, The House of God was the first unvarnished, unglorified, and uncensored portrait of what training to become a doctor is truly like, in all its terror, exhaustion and black comedy. With more than two million copies sold worldwide, it has been hailed as one of the most important medical novels ever written. With an introduction by John Updike

Explanation of the Book:

From the Laws of Mount Misery: There are no laws in psychiatry. Now, from the author of the riotous, moving, bestselling classic, The House of God, comes a lacerating and brilliant novel of doctors and patients in a psychiatric hospital. Mount Misery is a prestigious facility set in the rolling green hills of New England, its country club atmosphere maintained by generous corporate contributions. Dr. Roy Basch (hero of The House of God) is lucky enough to train there *only to discover doctors caught up in the circus of competing psychiatric theories, and patients who are often there for one main reason: they've got good insurance. From the Laws of Mount Misery: Your colleagues will hurt you more than your patients. On rounds at Mount Misery, it's not always easy for Basch to tell the patients from the doctors: Errol Cabot, the drug cowboy whose practice provides him with guinea pigs for his imaginative prescription cocktails . . . Blair Heiler, the world expert on borderlines (a diagnosis that applies to just about everybody) . . . A. K. Lowell, née Aliyah K. Lowenschteiner, whose Freudian analytic technique is so razor sharp it prohibits her from actually speaking to patients . . . And Schlomo Dove, the loony, outlandish shrink accused of having sex with a beautiful, well-to-do female patient. From the Laws of Mount Misery: Psychiatrists specialize in their defects. For Basch the practice of psychiatry soon becomes a nightmare in which psychiatrists compete with one another to find the best ways to reduce human beings to blubbering drug-addled pods, or incite them to an extreme where excessive rage is the only rational response, or tie them up in Freudian knots. And all the while, the doctors seem less interested in their patients' mental health than in a host of other things *managed care insurance money, drug company research grants and kickbacks, and their own professional advancement. From the Laws of Mount Misery: In psychiatry, first comes treatment, then comes diagnosis. What The House of God did for doctoring the body, Mount Misery does for doctoring the mind. A practicing psychiatrist, Samuel Shem brings vivid authenticity and extraordinary storytelling gifts to this long-awaited sequel, to create a novel that is laugh-out-loud hilarious, terrifying, and provocative. Filled with biting irony and a wonderful sense of the absurd, Mount Misery tells you everything you'll never learn in therapy. And it's a hell of a lot funnier.

Explanation of the Book:

Are we prepared for the glory and the cleansing to come? The Bible promises that judgment begins in the house of God. Many people avoid this intense passage in fear of the word “judgment.” As New Covenant believers, we can take comfort that this judgment brings life through a healthy fear of the Lord. Instead of warnings of hellfire and condemnation, this judgment brings a cleansing that will set the stage for the greatest outpouring of glory, prophetic thunder, and supernatural power the world has ever seen. God is simply looking for a people made ready—a house that is compatible with the glory He wants to fill it with! Jeremiah Johnson is a church planter, pioneer of Maranatha Ministry School, bestselling author and globally recognized prophet. In Judgment on the House of God, Jeremiah presents an impassioned prophetic word that challenges Christians to live without impurity and compromise, not through the bondage of legalism, but through ignited, burning hearts of passion towards the Lord. Birthed through an angelic visitation, Judgment on the House of God includes revelatory insights on: The Sons of Zadok—how to become one who “ministers before the Lord.” Exposing ministry addiction—the spiritual “high” of the day. The Spirit of perversion—confronting this demonic stronghold that’s taking out leaders. New Covenant Judgment—what it looks like and how you can tell it’s happening. Addressing the Sins of Eli—exposing compromise, impurity and spiritual mixture. The Spirit and Power of Elijah—the emergence of firebrands and prophetic messengers. A great and wonderful outpouring is coming. Now is the time to set things in order so that you can be a pure vessel that the power and presence of God can flow through!

Explanation of the Book:

As a believer, you are God’s temple, and His Spirit lives in you! Amazingly, God was thinking of you when He designed the original tabernacle and temple where He temporarily resided and where the Jewish people worshiped and interacted with Him, receiving numerous blessings along the way. In The Real House of God, learn how you have always been the desired abode of God, designed along the same pattern as the tabernacle and the temple. Learn how sin created a veil that separated you from God until Jesus Christ came to Earth to lead a perfect, sin-free life and sacrificed His life for you, in the process ripping apart the veil. As a result, an avenue has been opened for God to freely live within you and to have a permanent close relationship with you through His Holy Spirit. The Real House of God provides a detailed description of the design of the tabernacle and temple and their contents and what they symbolize in relation to you, and gives practical tools as to how you can use the similarities to unleash the power of the Holy Spirit of God within you to learn how to walk daily with God and accrue His blessings. Learn how the person of the Holy Spirit helps you to overcome bondages, obstacles, and storms in your life to become supernaturally excellent and to live the extraordinary life God desires for you.

Explanation of the Book:

Family Worship offers solid solutions to the increasingly dysfunctional family in today's secularized society, and it provides constructive suggestions to those who want to reestablish their homes on biblical foundations. The Hebraic foundations fo the Christain faith establish the home as a small temple. This insight dramatically changes the dynamics of the home for those who believe in the God of the Bible and in his will for their lives. The Christian family was always designed by God to be the center for social, educational, and spiritual growth and maturity--a place of fellowswhip, study, and prayer. Now, you, too can experience these same powerful dyunamics that made the home the center of sanctity and security that it was for the biblical peoples. Family Worship presents these vivid images of a rich biblically Hebraic tradition for Christians today: The Domestic Temple, A Temple of Blessing, The Family Altar, A House of Prayer, A House of Study, Temples in Time, The Domestic Priesthood, and The Domestic Church. As you read this book, you'll be amazed at how your own family life will be revolutionized and enriched simply by restoring biblically Hebraic dynamics to your home.

Renon Chattelrault faces the most controversial case of his legal career. The defendant: a Catholic priest. The case involves the sexual abuse of hundreds of children under the age of ten. It is the first case of its kind, and it goes to the core of one of the oldest, richest and most powerful institutions on earth, the Roman Catholic church. As Chattelrault mounts his defense of Father Francis Dubois, he begins to uncover evidence of an epic conspiracy involving the sexual abuse of thousands of children – one that implicates not just the Louisiana diocese, but goes all the way to the Vatican itself. Most men would stand aside; but Renon Chattelrault is not most men. IN GOD'S HOUSE is a powerful thriller about the greatest conspiracy of our time, and one man's fearless crusade for justice.

Explanation of the Book:

The grandeur of St. Peter's, the Baroque ecstasy of the churches at Cholula in Mexico, the intimate peace of Fairford Church in Gloucestershire... The two thousand years' heritage of Christian churches is a fascinating one. For anyone interested in the evolution of architectural styles, the subject is of inescapable interest. For a far wider group of people, however, it is clear that churches are much more than architectural monuments. Through their rich historical associations and special emotional quality that is largely denied to secular buildings, they exert a power that crosses national boundaries and even beliefs. Edward Norman sees churches as both acts of faith and works of art. The clarity, knowledge, and insight of his chronological survey are supported and enhanced by a brilliantly researched collection of illustrations. The result is a perfect mix between the most-loved master buildings such as Hagia Sophia and the freshness of the less familiara mission church in Paraguay or a Baroque shrine in Goa. Whether coming from the Catholic, Orthodox, or Protestant traditions, whether drawn to the sublimity of Sainte-Chapelle in Paris or the simplicity of a Puritan chapel, Christians everywhere will respond to Norman's celebration of churches. 387 illustrations, 80 in color.

Paradise on Earth, once lost with the fall of the great Garden of Eden? Or Hell on Earth with the demise of human life as we know it and demons running free from the pits of the lake of fire? In this cosmic setting, pawns are falling as the moves are made to end all of creation. Which move will take the last piece from the board?

Explanation of the Book:

From the bestselling author of the The House of God comes an ambitious novel about the complicated relationships between mothers and sons, doctors and patients, the past and the present, and love and death... Settled into a relationship with an Italian yoga instructor and working in Europe, Dr. Orville Rose's peace is shaken by his mother's death. On his return to Columbia, a Hudson River town of quirky people and “plagued by breakage,” he learns that his mother has willed him a large sum of money, her 1981 Chrysler, and her Victorian house in the center of town. There's one odd catch: he must live in her house for one year and thirteen days. As he struggles with his decision—to stay and meet the terms of the will or return to his life in Italy—Orville reconnects with family, reunites with former friends, and comes to terms with old rivals and bitter memories. In the process he’ll discover his own history, as well as his mother’s, and finally learn what it really means to be a healer, and to be healed.

Explanation of the Book:

A Wind in the House of Islam investigates the phenomenon of millions of Muslims who are turning to faith in Jesus Christ today. Over the course of Islamic history tens of millions of Christians were absorbed into the House of Islam. But what about the opposite? Have there ever been movements of Muslim communities who voluntarily turned to Jesus Christ and were baptized? The first 13 centuries of Islam's history saw only three movements numbering at least a thousand Muslims turning to Christianity, apart from those that were coerced through wars, Crusades and Inquisitions. Today, the story is changing. Over the past two decades there have been 69 additional movements of Muslims to Christ scattered across the Muslim world from West Africa to Indonesia. In an unprecedented global survey, Dr. David Garrison, Ph.D. University of Chicago, traveled a quarter-million miles throughout the House of Islam to find out why and how this is happening today. His research took him into every corner of the Muslim world where he gathered more than a thousand interviews of Muslim-background followers of Jesus Christ. His core question: What did God use to bring you to faith in Jesus Christ? A Wind in the House of Islam reveals their stories, and David Garrison's journey through all nine Rooms in the House of Islam, where he discovered that the Wind of God's Spirit is blowing through every one of them. A Wind in the House of Islam is a 328-page book written in an engaging style, but also includes a glossary of Islamic terms, a bibliography for further reading, endnotes, 11 maps with data tables of Muslim populations, 46 photographs, and excerpts from more than a thousand interviews. Each of the book's 15 chapters conclude with discussion questions to facilitate small group dialogue and discovery. Learn more about the book at: www.WindintheHouse.org

Explanation of the Book:

A thief has quietly crept into our churches. This thief has robbed us blind and most of us do not even realize it. Most of what our Lord wants for us has been taken from us by a "spirit of religion". This spirit has caused us to become a self-centered, flesh-serving institution instead of the life-giving, hope-building, Christ-filled Body that Jesus wants to build. Our only hope of reconnecting with our Lord and the culture around us is to return to the Lord Himself. He will build His own Church, with much less help from us than we realize. This book shows the power of restoring the Church by restoring the intimacy of relationship with our Lord and then with the people God has put into our lives.
