The Dream of God: A Call to Return by Verna J. Dozier-The Dream of God is a small masterpiece. . . . Her vision of the Bible is insightful and persuasive, her writing accessible and powerful.- -- Marcus Borg
-This contemporary prophet has touched lives and transformed hearts through her books and talks. Many centuries before Verna Dozier, there was Amos, from the country, speaking out in the market square against the corrupt practices of merchants who sell the righteous for silver and the needy for a pair of shoes. In this century we have Dozier, a black female, spreading Gods word in the nations capital, across the country, and outside its borders.- -- Washington Diocese
Again and again the Christian church has fallen away from the dream God has for it, a dream in which we are called to follow Jesus and not merely to worship him. Through adept storytelling and Bible study, Dozier reawakens our sense of calling and our desire for truth.

The Call continues to stand as a classic, reflective work on life's purpose. Best-selling author Os Guinness goes beyond our surface understanding of God's call and addresses the fact that God has a specific calling for our individual lives.
This book is a personal look into the Biblical concept of trusting God. Jerry Bridges writes out of his own study through difficult experiences as he gives his readers an in-depth look into a journey involving his own faith. His conclusions resulted in a theological look at a practical level of the shaping God uses in our lives to cause us to look more like Christ. Specifically, Bridges focuses on three character truths about God: sovereignty, wisdom, and love. These character truths comprise the majority of this book with the remaining four chapters being the application and conclusion of his study. Every single person experiences adversity.
Sometimes we ask What is God's will for my life? The Bible has an answer: Be like the very image of God. By exploring ten characteristics of who God is - holy, loving, just, good, merciful, gracious, faithful, patient, truthful, and wise - this book helps us understand who God intends for us to be. Through Christ, the perfect reflection of the image of God, we will discover how God's own attributes impact how we live, leading to freedom and purpose as we follow his will and are conformed to his image. During her seventeen years of teaching, she has organized and led studies for women in home, church, and parachurch contexts. What would you like to know about this product?
