Throughout reading this book, I was struck by how well it complements Gibbs' and Bolger's "Emerging Churches." Whereas "Emerging Churches" focuses on a new breed of churches that have largely come out of the evangelical movement, "Christianity for the Rest of Us" looks at a new type of church coming from the old mainline of Christianity/5(82).

Christianity for the Rest of Us describes this phenomenon and offers a how-to approach for Protestants eager to remain faithful to their tradition while becoming a vital spiritual community.

This book is the result of a study, or pilgrimage as the author calls it, to refute critics who say that only conservative churches can grow/5. "Christianity for the Rest of Us". This book, which contains the results of her seminal sociological study of exploring vitality in mainline congregations, disproves the commonly held theory that the mainline church is either dead or on life support.5/5(5).

The Book of the Dead is an ancient Egyptian funerary text, used from the beginning of the New Kingdom (around BCE) to around 50 BCE.

We all understand that the book of Revelation is an "end-time" book, and its primary focus is on things that "shall be." As a book intended for the end time, the primary instruction in Revelation 2 and 3 concerns the end-time church. When Revelation was written at the end of the first century, all seven churches existed at the same time, therefore the seven conditions—the messages.

The book, "After The Warning To " reveals many words from Heaven of future events, taken from the Bible and from the Holy Spirit, revealed through visions to the Early Church Fathers, Doctors of the Church, venerable, blessed, and canonized Saints, Mystics of the Church including stigmatists, priests and religious, ordinary men and women of notable, discernable.

This was occasioned partly by the hatred he bore to his predecessor Philip, who was deemed a Christian and was partly by his jealousy concerning the amazing increase of Christianity; for the heathen temples began to be forsaken, and the Christian churches thronged.
