  • Solstorm af Åsa Larsson
    af Åsa Larsson

    "Det stormer på solen. Vintermørket brydes af nordlyset, der glider som en drage over Kirunas iskolde himmel. I Krystalkirken kæmper lys og mørke, og menighedens ikon, den karismatiske Viktor Strandgård, findes myrdet og lemlæstet midt i altergangen. Skattejurist og arbejdsnarkoman Rebecka MArtinsson, som for længst har forladt fødebyen Kiruna i det nordligste Sverige, bliver bedt om at vende ""hjem"" - barndomsveninden Sanne, søster til den myrdede Viktor, har brug for hendes hjælp. Modvilligt tager MArtinsson tilbage til Kiruna, hvor hadet vokser om kap med mørket i et lille frikirkesamfund, der vil gøre alt for at bevare sine hemmeligheder. SOLSTORM er første bog i Åsa Larssons populære serie om juristen Rebecka Martinsson.""Et brag af en debut. Faktisk kommer man under læsningen flere gange til at tænke på Kerstin Ekmans 'Hændelser ved vand', som nok er verdens bedste kriminalroman.Povl Høst-Madsen, Ekstra BladetLysende svensk krimidebut! Det er barsk, men også morsomt, for Larsson er herligt usentimental, når hun tager sine personer på kornet.Mette Strømfeldt, B.T."

  • Jesus Kalder af Sarah Young
    - Nyd freden i Hans nærvær
    af Sarah Young

    'Jesus Kalder' er en bog med andagter til hver dag i året. Sarah Young har skrevet denne andagtsbog ud fra en lyttende tilgang til, hvad Gud har at sige til os. Efter mange år med envejskommunikation i andagtslivet, besluttede Sarah Young sig for at prøve at sætte sig ned med en blyant i hånden og lytte – lytte til, hvad Gud ville sige til hende. Dette er der kommet en helt speciel andagtsbog ud af.Til hver dag i året er der et kort andagtsstykke, skrevet, som hvis det var Jesus, der talte direkte til dig. Andagterne er solidt funderet i Bibelen, og det, at det er Jesus, der taler direkte, gør det til en meget speciel oplevelse at holde andagt. Det er en god øvelse i at lytte til Gud.

  • Blodskyld af Åsa Larsson
    af Åsa Larsson

    Det er sensommer og næsten to år siden, at mordet på den religiøse leder Viktor Strandgård tvang Rebecka Martinsson tilbage til Kiruna, hendes fødeby nord for polarcirklen. Nu er hun sygemeldt fra jobbet som jurist i Stockholm og har svært ved at huske de voldsomme begivenheder fra dengang. Politiinspektør Anna-Maria Mella efterforsker mordet på præsten Mildred Nilsson, en provokatør, der var på kant med sine arbejdsgivere i kirken, med jagtklubben og med langt de fleste mænd i byen. Lighederne med mordet på Viktor Strandgård er så slående, at politiet leder efter en copycat. Sporene er ved at blive kolde, men i landsbyen Poikkijärvi, hvor præsten boede, brænder sandheden lige under overfladen. Jorden må snart afsløre sin blodskyld, for den kan ikke længere skjule de dræbte. BLODSKYLD er anden del af Åsa Larssons serie om juristen Rebecka Martinsson."Åsa Larsson kan spinde en gobelin af plot, der gør Blodskyld spændende fra første til sidste side - endda i et sprog, der med rette sammenlignes med Kerstin Ekmans."Tabita Wulff , Ugebladet Søndag"Det er en fremragende to'er, som svenske Åsa Larsson har skrevet efter debutsuccesen 'Solstorm'."Bent Stenbakken, Nordjyske Stiftstidende"Barsk, spændende, følsom og voldsomt godt beskrivende."René Simmel, Ekstra Bladet

  • Jeg mødte Jesus - Bekendelser fra en modvilligt troende af Charlotte Rørth
    af Charlotte Rørth

    Hvad stiller man op, når man møder Jesus?Journalisten Charlotte Rørth var hverken et religiøst eller spirituelt søgende menneske, da Guds søn bogstaveligt talt viste sig for hende og talte til hende i en kirke i Spanien. Oplevelsen var et lynnedslag i hendes verden, der tvang hende til at tage sit moderne rationelle liv op til overvejelse. Jeg mødte Jesus er hendes personlige, eksistentielle beretning om at være bange for at miste sin fornuft ogsin familie og om den nagende tvivl, om hun er blevet enhåbløs, småskør excentriker uden mulighed for fodfæste i et nutidens Danmark, der ikke ligefrem opfordrer til at tage religiøse erfaringer seriøst. Vi følger Charlotte Rørth på hendes rejse tilbage i historien og litteraturen om den historiske Jesus, og når hun opsøgerforskere i epilepsi og psykiatri, præster og spirituellevejledere for at finde viden om og afklaring og forståelse af, hvad der skete med hende.LEKTØRUDTALELSE"Det er modigt, at Charlotte Rørth fortæller omverdenen om sin oplevelse, vel vidende at mange vil se skævt til historien, eller betragte hende som skør. Hun skriver levende og reflekterende, og som læser oplever man en mere undersøgende/journalistisk vinkel på oplevelsen (...) Kan anskaffes bredt, idet forfatterens vinkel på "at have mødt Jesus" er anderledes, og bogen vil kunne tiltrække en bredere målgruppe end denne type bøger normalt gør."PRESSEN SKREV"Charlotte Rørth skriver besynderligt indtrængende om sit møde med Jesus (...) Bogen er en skønskrift af de klogere - du kan ikke tro, når du ikke har set selv."- 4 hjerter, Politiken"Charlotte Rørth er troværdig og helt bevidst om, at hun har oplevet noget, der reelt strider mod hendes eget væsen (...) Charlotte Rørth [har] den store styrke, at hun er begavet, velskrivende og selvkritisk. Hun undersøger tingene grundigt og formår midt i det hele at sætte sine erkendelser i forhold til en moderne tilværelse dybt præget af et naturvidenskabeligt grundsyn (...) Charlotte Rørth har et brændende budskab at bringe videre, og hun gør det så overbevisende, at der er grund til at læse."- Kristeligt Dagblad

  • Den Gud jeg ikke kendte af Philip Yancey
    - At gribe efter en usynlig Gud
    af Philip Yancey

    Hvordan kan man relatere til en Gud, som er usynlig, og hvis eksistens man ikke kan bevise? Læs denne indsigtsfulde bog og lad Philip Yancey hjælpe dig til at finde svar.Livet i Gud fungerer ikke altid sådan, som vi forventede. Ofte kolliderer forventningerne med livets barske realiteter og vores egen magtesløshed. Den Gud, som Bibelen forkynder er kommet os nær, og som kaldes vores himmelske Far, kan ofte synes fjern og utilnærmelig. Leger Gud kispus med os? Kan vi regne med ham? Tør vi stole på ham? Hvordan kan vi få et personligt forhold til ham?Denne bog formidler en dyb indsigt, der imødekommer og bekræfter de svære spørgsmål, som vi ofte er bange for at stille. Ærligt og redeligt deler Yancey her sin indsigt med enhver, der ønsker mere end patentløsninger på livets svære spørgsmål - for til sidst at skifte fokus fra vores spørgsmål til ham, der er selve Svaret, og som har lagt sig i vores hænder for at lade sig gribe og finde.

  • Danskernes tro gennem 1000 år af Peter Lodberg Spar 18%
    af Peter Lodberg

    Om ”Danskenes tro gennem 1000 år” Denne lydbog er en vidende og levende vandring gennem troens landskaber – dens forestillingsverden og betydning for vores historie. Tro kan flytte bjerge – andre gange må man tro om igen. Snart viser det sig at blive en national og religiøs dannelsesrejse, for de to elementer er altid gået hånd i hånd. Fra de første vikingekonger lod sig kristne – for at forsvare sig mod tyske indtrængere – over reformationen, som gjorde Danmark protestantisk og til en egentlig stat, til 1800-tallets store vækkelser, der formulerede begrebet nation og folk. Altid er de nye impulser kommet udefra. I vores tid sætter sekulariseringen og indvandring folkekirken under pres. Er Danmark på vej til at blive et multikulturelt samfund? Svaret er ikke givet, for historien viser, at det nationale og det religiøse i forening kan samle et folk, når afgørende forandringer trænger sig på ude- og indefra. Om ”Peter Lodberg” Peter Lodberg (f. 1958) er teolog og professor MSO ved Aarhus Universitet. Han har tidligere været generalsekretær for Folkekirkens Nødhjælp. Han har bidraget til skabelsen af Danmarks Radios tv-serie ”1000 års tro”, der blev vist i november 2016, og hvori han også deltager. Danskenes tro gennem 1000 år er en selvstændig udgivelse i forlængelse heraf. ” Danskenes tro gennem 1000 år” er indlæst som lydbog af Thomas Leth Rasmussen i 2017 for Lytteratur hos AV Forlaget/Swann studio

    - Martin Luther and His Reformation under Siege
    af James Reston Jr.

    From a celebrated religious scholar comes a riveting account of the Catholic Church's failed attempt to crush Martin Luther and his Reformation.In 1521, the Catholic Church was hunting for Martin Luther. Angered by the Christian reformer's unapologetic criticisms of the Church, the Holy Roman Emperor had called for him "e;to be apprehended and punished as a notorious heretic."e; Knowing that inquisitors would murder the monk and crush his fragile movement if they caught him, Luther's followers spirited him away to Wartburg Castle in central Germany. There Luther hid for the next eight months as his fate-and that of the Reformation-hung in the balance.In Luther's Fortress, acclaimed religious historian James Reston Jr. describes this crucial but little-known episode in Luther's life. While at Wartburg, Luther translated the Bible, fought his inner demons, and held together his fractious and increasingly radicalized movement from afar. A gripping portrait of the theologian at a transformational moment, Luther's Fortress reveals how Luther and his Reformation emerged from Wartburg Castle stronger than ever.

  • What Your Body Knows about God af Rob Moll Spar 21%
    - How We Are Designed to Connect, Serve, and Thrive
    af Rob Moll

    Have you ever had an experience where you felt particularly aware of God? If God is real and we are created in God's image, then it makes sense that our minds and bodies would be designed with the perceptive ability to sense and experience God.Scientists are now discovering ways that our bodies are designed to connect with God. Research shows that our brain systems are wired to enable us to have spiritual experiences. The spiritual circuits that are used in prayer or worship are also involved in developing compassion for others. Our bodies have actually been created to love God and serve our neighbors.Award-winning journalist Rob Moll chronicles the fascinating ways in which our brains and bodies interact with God and spiritual realities. He reports on neuroscience findings that show how our brains actually change and adapt when engaged in spiritual practices. We live longer, healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives when we cultivate the biological spiritual capacity that puts us in touch with God. God has created our bodies to fulfill the Great Commandment; we are hardwired to commune with God and to have compassion and community with other people. Moll explores the neuroscience of prayer, how liturgy helps us worship, why loving God causes us to love others, and how a life of love and service leads to the abundant life for which we were created.Just as our physical bodies require exercise to stay healthy, so too can spiritual exercises and practices revitalize our awareness of God. Heighten your spiritual senses and discover how you have been designed for physical and spiritual flourishing.

  • Guaranteed Pure af Timothy E. W. Gloege Spar 21%
    - The Moody Bible Institute, Business, and the Making of Modern Evangelicalism
    af Timothy E. W. Gloege

    In the history of the Moody Bible Institute, founded in 1886 by shoe salesman turned revivalist Dwight Lyman Moody, Timothy Gloege finds an answer to why Christian ethics seem to go hand in hand with free-market capitalism. Taking the story back to the origins of modern fundamentalism as it arose within the social and cultural context of the Gilded Age and the Progressive Era, Gloege reveals longstanding connections between Chicago evangelicals and business and shows that the marriage between modern business and the so-called "e;old-time religion"e; developed symbiotically, forever altering the American religious landscape.By 1920, a shifting coalition of businessmen, midlevel bureaucrats, and ministers had forged a remarkably resilient form of conservative evangelicalism that deviated in key respects from traditional Protestantism and that embraced modern consumer-oriented ideas and strategies. At the bottom was evangelicalism's thoroughgoing individualism, demonstrated prominently in the privilege it gave to a personal relationship with God as the essence of an authentic faith. This individualism aligned with key developments within capitalism and facilitated a remarkable confluence of business and religious ideas resistant to the influence of Darwinian science's basic orientation toward aggregated populations conditioned by nature or nurture.For these evangelicals, to challenge capitalism was to challenge the foundations of evangelical orthodoxy. Guaranteed pure from both liberal theology and populist literalism, this was a new form of old-time religion not simply compatible with modern consumer capitalism but uniquely dependent on it.

  • Future of the Catholic Church with Pope Francis af Garry Wills Spar 21%
    af Garry Wills

    New York Times bestselling historian Garry Wills takes on a pressing question in modern religion-will Pope Francis embrace change?Pope Francis, the first Jesuit pope and the first from the Americas, offers a challenge to his church. Can he bring about significant change? Should he?Garry Wills argues that changes have been the evidence of life in the Catholic Church. It has often changed, sometimes with bad consequences, more often with good-good enough to make it perdure. In this brilliant and incisive study, he gives seven examples of deep and serious changes that have taken place within the last century. None of them was effected by the pope all by himself.As Wills contends, it is only by examining the history of the church that we can understand the challenges facing both it and Francis, and as history shows, any changes that meet those challenges will have impact only if the church, the people of God, support them. In reading the church's history, Wills considers the lessons Pope Francis seems to have learned. The challenge that Francis offers the church is its ability to undertake new spiritual adventures, making it a poor church for the poor, after the example of Jesus.

    Jesus is a fresh and inspirational reimagining of a young man's transformational journey from carpenter's son to revolutionary leader to the man whom many believe to be the savior of the world. Very little is known or recorded about Jesus in his formative years. In the Gospel stories, we witness the birth of Jesus and then see him as a young boy of twelve intensely questioning the rabbis in the Second Temple in Jerusalem. Jesus does not reappear until age thirty, when he emerges as the potent and stirring rebel baptized by John at the River Jordan. What happens to Jesus in those lost years? How did Jesus the young boy become Christ the Savior? With his characteristic ability for imparting profound spiritual insights through the power of storytelling, Chopra's Jesus will capture the life of Jesus as never before.

The Persian Army invades, and Bellili's tightly-wound secrets unfurl with the arrival of the conquering army.

    Primarily, How Long, O Lord? is a book of preventative medicine. One of the major causes of devastating grief and confusion among Christians is that our expectations are false. We do not give the subject of evil and suffering the thought it deserves until we ourselves are confronted with tragedy. If by that point our beliefs-not well thought out but deeply ingrained-are largely out of step with the God who has disclosed himself in the Bible and supremely in Jesus, then the pain from the personal tragedy may be multiplied many times over as we begin to question the very foundations of our faith.This clear and accessible treatment of key biblical themes related to human suffering and evil is written by one of the most respected evangelical biblical scholars alive today. Carson brings together a close, careful exposition of key biblical passages with helpful pastoral applications.
