Abraham's Other Son

Abraham's Other Son
$16.99

By Philip G. Samaan

The controversial topic of the ever-turbulent Middle East is incessantly bombarding us in the media, and will remain so till the end. The sheer Muslim population on our planet, its globally strategic position, its complex politics, its vast resources, and especially its desperate need for the gospel--all make this crucial subject impossible to ignore. Islam boasts of approximately a fifth of the world population, its regions control most of the world's oil reserves, and it is the fastest growing religion in the world and in the United States.

In his book, Abraham's Other Son: Islam Among Judaism and Christianity, the author Dr. Philip G. Samaan deals with the enduring legacy of Abraham, and tries to disentangle the misconceptions among the three monotheistic religions, stemming from their ancestral father Abraham. Understanding Islam will be highlighted more than Judaism and Christianity, simply because we are more familiar with the other two. Islam is still shrouded in enigma, veiled in ambiguities, and a greater effort should be exerted in clarifying its beliefs and practices, as compared and contrasted with those of Judaism and Christianity.

It is hoped that the Question-and-Answer format, along with the selected glossary at the end, will help make the material easier to understand and assimilate. Hundreds of questions that seem puzzling and confusing will be answered with clarity and objectivity. May this book break new ground in dispelling many misunderstandings about the descendants of the other son of Abraham, and in drawing them to accept Jesus, the true Seed of Abraham. Let us hope that common ground of understanding will replace battlegrounds of misunderstanding as we embark on the exciting journey of earnestly seeking the loving, just and powerful God of our father Abraham. May this homeward journey help to prepare us and all of God's children to meet Jesus when He comes.

By Philip G Samaan

"Christ's method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Saviour mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. The He bade them, 'Follow Me.'" . . . "Accompanied by the power of persuasion, the power of prayer, the power of the love of God, this work will not, cannot, be without fruit" (The Ministry of Healing, pp. 143, 144).

Using the above quote as the basis for his book, Dr. Philip Samaan focuses on six progressive steps Christ used in witnessing. He shows how we can, through an intimate relationship with Him, follow this pattern to bring God's love, compassion, and transformation to those around us.

As you read, you'll discover listening skills that will enable you to express sympathy and detect people's felt and real needs. You'll learn how to develop meaningful, unconditional friendships that create trust and a yearning to associated with Jesus. And you'll gain helpful ideas on how to share you personal testimony, use intercessory prayer, and impart biblical truth.

Christ's Method will help free you of any anxiety you might have about witnessing, and enable you to find the joy, spontaneity, and success that come only from having a vibrant relationship with Jesus and genuinely loving people. Living out this Method in your spheres of influence will help you impact your family, church, and community for Christ.

This book is an updated and expanded version of Christ's Way of Reaching People.

Christ's Way of Affirmation

Christ's Way of Affirmation
$13.99

By Philip G Samaan

In our Western culture which focuses on individualism, it is not easy to know how to properly give and graciously receive a genuine compliment. This is frequently misunderstood and viewed as flattery. Yet there is a vacuum that God created in the human heart for altruistic affirmation, and Jesus shows us a powerful example of that. However, this God-given gift of affirmation is often counterfeited by the great deceiver. He counterfeits such affirmation which brings glory to God with false flattery which manipulates and inflates human ego.

In Christ's Way of Affirmation you learn how to follow His example of embracing altruistic affirmation and how to shun the ulterior motives of flattery. Let Jesus guide and empower you in this needed ministry of affirmation that is an overflow of His agape love. Let Him enable you on this exciting journey to build up the body of Christ and to advance His Kingdom.

By Philip G Samaan

How Did Jesus Make Disciples?

The need of the church today is not merely to win souls, but to make disciples. Adding new converts must be followed up with multiplying fruit-bearing disciples.

How did Jesus transform witnesses into radical disciples who, in turn, reproduced and multiplied themselves through others, thus building up His body in the world?

Christ’s Way of Making Disciples explores the dynamic process and progressive steps of Christ’s strategy for revitalizing our lives, our witness, and our church’s effectiveness.

Christ's Way to Pray

Christ's Way to Pray
$11.99

By Philip G Samaan

How Christ Prays for Us and With Us

Do your prayers seem to bounce off the wall and back into your face? Do you feel as if your petitions barely reach the ceiling before falling back shattered at your feet? How can your puny prayers become prevailing prayers?

Christ’s Way to Pray explains that the answer is not found in focusing on our own prayers or the prayers of others. The real answer is found in joining our weak prayers with Christ’s mighty prayers, that Christ who passionately and perpetually prays for us and with us.

Christ longs to take our "smelly" prayers and fragrance them with the incense of His prayers. He yearns to take the trickle of our prayers and mingle with it the mighty flood of His prayers.

As you linger in the embrace of the praying Jesus, let him encircle you with His compassionate human arm. And with His mighty divine arm. Let Him grasp the throne of God.

Christ's Way to Restoration

Christ's Way to Restoration
$12.99

By Philip G Samaan

Unprecedented crises are breaking out everywhere--a harbinger of more to come. As the critical time of the final crisis approaches, Satan knows that he has but a short time. He is poised to execute his well-hewn schemes of deception and destruction more than ever in the history of humanity. This old world is at the very edge of a cosmic precipice that will soon plunge it into the abyss of the most severe conflicts and calamities. The wily deceiver will take full advantage of these impending crises by contending for every single soul, sparing no one, even the very elect. The brokenness and rebelliousness, instigated by him in heaven, will culminate in impacting every sphere of human existence.

Christ's strategy of redemption will surely overrun and overwhelm the greatest of Satan's hellish designs. His great love and commitment moved Him to save us from the malignancy of sin, and to deliver us from eternal death. He took upon Himself our rebellion on the cross, suffering its grave consequences and providing us restoration for now and eternity.

Let us use our God-given freedom of choice to make the right decision of trusting and obeying Him with all our being. With the divine enmity against evil, implanted in our hearts, let us have the moral courage to shun the bad and embrace the good. Thus Christ's eternal purpose of restoration from rebellion may be fulfilled--save us from sin and deliver us from death.

Therefore, through appreciation of Christ's initiative and appropriation of His character, we may live His law of love and become more and more like Him. Why not then freely choose to invite Christ to reign supremely in our hearts? Why not, by His enabling grace, choose His precious offer of life abundant and His enduring gift of life eternal?

Christ's Way to Spiritual Growth

Christ's Way to Spiritual Growth
$16.50

By Philip G Samaan

Spirituality is Christlikeness--

having Jesus so fill our lives that when others look at us, they see Jesus instead.

Spiritual growth, or spirituality, is a topic that has captured the interest of people everywhere. Even those who aren’t traditionally religious have become interested in spirituality.

But what is spirituality?

Philip Samaan believes that, far more than prayer, meditation, or any of the other spiritual disciplines, spirituality is Christlikeness, having Jesus so fill our lives that when others look at us, they see Him instead.

By focusing on what the Bible and Ellen White reveal about Christ’s spiritual life, he shows how we can become more and more like Jesus, our great example and model.

It's All in Your Head

It's All in Your Head
$15.99

By Maria McCutchen

Maria McCutchen did not have time to be sick. With a husband who had just lost a job, two young sons, and a cross-country move on the horizon, who had time to be sick? Maria didn't have time for a common cold, let alone a major medical condition. But one day while shopping in the grocery store where she had shopped hundreds of times before, she couldn't find the milk. It was then she knew what she was feeling was more than just stress or exhaustion. There was something very wrong.

Maria McCutchen did not have time to be sick. With a husband who had just lost a job, two young sons, and a cross-country move on the horizon, who had time to be sick? Maria didn't have time for a common cold, let alone a major medical condition. But one day while shopping in the grocery store where she had shopped hundreds of times before, she couldn't find the milk. It was then she knew what she was feeling was more than just stress or exhaustion. There was something very wrong. After consulting a few doctors, Maria discovered she had a rare brain cyst known as a posterior fossa arachnoid cyst-a very large brain cyst. Hearing these cysts were normally asymptomatic was of little comfort, especially because she felt her mind and body slipping away more and more every day. Normal mental and physical functions were becoming harder to control. Even if the doctors didn't believe the cyst was a problem, she knew it was. It would take months of living inside a shell of a person that she'd become, months of living in a mental fogginess and sometimes even physical pain, before she would finally get the medical attention she needed. It's All in Your Head chronicles her harrowing medical odyssey and her attempts to regain some sort of semblance of her old life after treatment.

Student Advisor

Student Advisor
$11.50

By Oswald W. Walker Jr

If God cannot be as personal to you as a friend, does He even matter? If He really doesn't interact with you the way a friend can interact, is He even relevant to your life? But if you believe God does interact with you, how can you be sure? Many honest people would answer this question by naming experiences in which they have seen God do something for them. But imagine asking a little girl who has a dad that financially supports her but personally rejects her, "do you know your dad?" She would tell you that just because her dad has done something for her doesn't mean she actually knows him. Likewise, just because God has done something for you doesn't mean you actually know Him. The Student and the Advisor is an extended letter to a friend that reveals testimonies and principles on a journey to knowing God, not just acknowledging what He has done. THIS LETTER SHOULD NOT EXCITE SPIRTUAL ECSTACY BUT A DESIRE TO DEVELOP AN INDESTRUCTIBLE CHARACTER THROUGH THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. It's time to graduate from "Mere Christianity!" Sitting on the table is Oswald Walker; founder and director of Profound Meditations, a movement of people fighting against spiritual indifference and moral decay. Website: profoundmeditations.org Simone Marshall was born in the island of Barbados, but soon settled in Nashville, Tenn. With her journalism degree from Southern Adventist University, she is one step closer to fulfilling her dream of becoming a judge. In her free time she enjoys swinging a tennis racket around, working with ministries at her home church, and taking in the pages of an inspirational book. Behind the computer is Christopher Lockhart; Christian graphic artist who specializes in illustration, print design, and digital imagery.
