2 Jun

Thomas Nelson has added two new Bible studies to their Refraction series — Transcending Mysteries by Andrew Greer and Ginny Owens and Divided: When The Head And Heart Don’t Agree by Bill Delvaux. Check them out below.


1401680402.jpg“We fell in love with Jesus. Then we had to decide what to do with God.” In Transcending Mysteries: Who Is God, and What Does He Want from Us? Andrew Greer and Ginny Owens take readers on a journey to answer the question: is the God of the Old Testament the same God we relate to and worship today?

As the most definitive written revelation of who God is, Scripture has always been vital to the stories of the Christian faith. The Old Testament has proved especially tough for those who have been persuaded by the gracious gospel of Jesus but also desire to surrender to a God they don’t fully comprehend. We adore the Son of God, but what about God the Father?

Using Old Testament stories Andrew and Ginny help Christ-followers reconcile a New Testament Redeemer with an Old Testament God and understand what God really wants from His people. They dialog back and forth as they share their own stories of struggle and surrender. Their comments are separated by speaker identifiers that are used throughout.

Features include:

Old Testament stories that are completed in Jesus’ message
Dialog between Andrew Greer and Ginny Owens
Music lyrics from Andrew and Ginny that illustrate biblical truths
Thought-provoking questions for reflection or study

0529121263.jpgThe longest distance in the universe is between the head and heart. For Christ-followers, it is the chasm between what we say we believe in our minds and what we truly believe in our hearts: a split between our statements about God and our experience of Him. This divide is everywhere around us, causing untold devastation. It is found in the double lives of believers and in the hypocrisy of church leaders, but mainly we see it in ourselves. It is the default position of every human heart.

In Divided: When the Head and Heart Don’t Agree, Bill Delvaux exposes this divide and offers strategies to tackle it. The actual journey to cross the divide is sketched out, an epic journey that will take us into our deepest fear and shame and on into the wonder of God’s presence. For becoming undivided is not just another task. It’s the pathway into the very heart of the Father.

Features include:

Strategies for closing the divide between head and heart
Specific prayers for each stage of the spiritual journey
Thought-provoking questions for spiritual conversation or reflection
