Adam Hamilton, named by PBS’s Religion and Ethics Newsweekly as one of the top “Ten People to Watch,” has created an inviting new series of video-and-book studies on love and marriage, life issues, world religions, and Christian denominations. Hamilton calls these small-group studies “fishing expeditions,” because they include tools for congregation wide and communitywide programs to draw in new members.

In examining these major world religions and the beliefs of their followers, the Reverend Hamilton urges us as Christians to build bridges with others so that we might grow in our faith, seek peace in our world, love our neighbor, and find positive ways to share the gospel.

    We’re all searching. Sometimes the search is easy: simply type a question and the answer pops up. But sometimes our questions are complicated, and the answers are difficult to see and harder to articulate. How do we discover and examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life? The Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs, contains some powerful answers.

    In this six-week study of the Apostle's Creed, Hamilton considers important questions of life, reality, and truth. He explores not only what Christians believe, but also why they believe it and why it matters.

    The Children's Leader Guide contains session ideas for younger and older children, including games, activities, craft ideas, and reproducible handouts. Children are forming their own faith. We can help shape it by looking at the beliefs contained in the Apostles’ Creed and presenting them in a way that children can follow and enjoy.

But sometimes our questions are complicated, and the answers are difficult to see and harder to articulate. How do we discover and examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life? The Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs, contains some powerful answers.

    This is what Adam has to say about Creed:  In some ways it is my attempt to do what C.S. Lewis did in 1943 with Mere Christianity – to help Christians understand what they believe, but even more importantly, to make the case for Christian faith for those who have doubts or questions.

    I use the Apostles’ Creed as a way of looking at the essential tenants of Christianity and then look at how we make sense of these things in our modern world, and why these beliefs still matter.  As I wrote it I was thinking of the many young adults who grew up in church but no longer attend.

    Chapters include:
    • God
    • Jesus Christ
    • The Holy Spirit
    • The Church and the Communion of Saints
    • The Forgiveness of Sin
    • The Resurrection of the Body

    The DVD contains six video segments of 10-12 minutes each, featuring Adam Hamilton in an informal setting with a group of seekers and believers. The videos, when combined with the six book chapters, make an ideal 6-week group study. All video sessions are closed captioned.

    We’re all searching. Sometimes the search is easy: simply type a question and the answer pops up. But sometimes our questions are complicated, and the answers are difficult to see and harder to articulate. How do we discover and examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life? The Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs, contains some powerful answers.

    This is what Adam has to say about Creed:  In some ways it is my attempt to do what C.S. Lewis did in 1943 with Mere Christianity – to help Christians understand what they believe, but even more importantly, to make the case for Christian faith for those who have doubts or questions.

    I use the Apostles’ Creed as a way of looking at the essential tenants of Christianity and then look at how we make sense of these things in our modern world, and why these beliefs still matter.  As I wrote it I was thinking of the many young adults who grew up in church but no longer attend.

    Chapters include:
    • God
    • Jesus Christ
    • The Holy Spirit
    • The Church and the Communion of Saints
    • The Forgiveness of Sin
    • The Resurrection of the Body

    For small groups there is a leaders guide available along with a small group DVD which was filmed at Resurrection Downtown. There are also resources for children and youth for congregations looking to do a church wide study.

    David was a paradox. Scriptures call him a man after God’s own heart. He’s known as one of Israel’s greatest kings, yet he was still fully human. He made destructive choices, abused his power and caused brokenness in the lives of others. But despite his failures, he ultimately sought to follow God and was redeemed by truth and forgiveness.

    Money has great power in our lives. Used wisely, it is one key to accomplishing our goals, providing for our needs, and fulfilling our life purpose. In recent years, many of us ignored the wisdom of the past when it came to managing and spending our money. Credit card debt soared, savings rates plummeted, and our home equity became something to be tapped into and spent rather than a source of security in retirement. We felt an insatiable desire for more. And we found ourselves spending tomorrow's money today in order to have what we hoped would satisfy. The result of all of this was not greater happiness and satisfaction, but greater stress and anxiety.

    Enough is an invitation to rediscover the Bible's wisdom when it comes to prudent financial practices. In these pages are found the keys to experiencing contentment, overcoming fear, and discovering joy through simplicity and generosity. This book could change your life, by changing your relationship with money.

    "We Americans love our stuff. We're living in a fast-paced, me-first, instant-gratification world, and it's finally catching up to us. Debt is out of control, homes are in foreclosure ... even banks are going out of business. What the world needs today is the message of contentment and simplicity, and that's exactly what Pastor Adam Hamilton delivers in Enough."
    Dave Ramsey, New York Times Best-Selling Author and Nationally Syndicated Radio Talk Show Host

    "Once again, Adam Hamilton is leading the church; 'Enough is enough' was once a Wesleyan watchword. Adam breathes new life into the Wesleyan commitment to simplicity. Amid a culture of greed and conspicuous consumption Adam calls us to a biblically based, evangelical joy of having the faith to say 'enough is enough.'"
    Bishop Will Willimon
    United Methodist Church, Birmingham Area

    "I pay close attention to whatever Adam Hamilton writes. His books are marked by extraordinary pastoral insight, biblical and theological depth, courage to speak the truth, and down-to-earth practicality. Enough comes like an antidote in the middle of a pandemic. I hope that classes, groups, couples, and individuals will use this book--and the economic crisis it addresses--as a challenge to get healthy again by deepening our discipleship in the vital area of money and possessions."

    If you are the parent of a preteen, you may feel as if you are the only person in the world trying to deal with this almost-grown stranger in your home. You might describe your preteen as opinionated, sometimes defiant, seeking independence one day and totally dependent on you the next, inquisitive, and--above all--seeking to break the world record for the number of text messages sent and received in one day. How, with all that is going on in the hearts and minds of preteens, can we parents help them develop A Faith of Their Own?

    Chris Folmsbee is an experienced youth worker, an author and speaker, and a dad. He understands that you the parent of a preteen is learning as you go.

    Understanding the Common Cry of Preteens is the first piece of a three-part series designed to help you help your teen develop spiritually as he or she develops physically and mentally. The ultimate goal is to prepare you as you lead your child to conform to the image of God through Jesus Christ.
