Weed, Inc by Ben Cort

If you ask a young person today about weed, what comes to mind isn’t rolling a joint or taking a bong hit, getting the munchies and chilling out. In fact, cannabis today is practically an entirely different product than what most people think it is, so before you start saying, ‘What’s the big deal about legalizing weed?’ there’s a lot you should know.

Reset by David Murray

“How did I get here?”

These are the words of many Christian men on the brink of burnout or in the midst of breakdown. They are exhausted, depressed, anxious, stressed, and joyless. Their time is spent doing many good things, but their pace is unsustainable—lacking the regular rest, readjustment, and recalibration they need.

But there is good news: God has graciously provided a way for men to reset their lives to a more sustainable pace. Drawing on personal experiences—and time spent counseling other men in the midst of burnout—David Murray offers weary men hope for the future, helping them identify the warning signs of burnout and offering practical strategies for developing patterns that are necessary for living a grace-paced life and reaching the finish line with their joy intact.

Crossing Cultures in Scripture by Dr. Marvin J. Newell

Biblical texts shed light on mission dynamics: Sarah and Hagar functioning in an honor-shame culture, Moses as a multicultural leader, Ruth as a crosscultural conversion, David and Uriah illustrating power distance, the queen of Sheba as an international truth-seeker, Daniel as a transnational student, Paul in Athens as a model of contextualization, and much more. Missionary and missions professor Marvin Newell provides a biblical theology of culture and mission, mining the depths of Scripture to tease out missiological insights and crosscultural perspectives. Unlike other such books that are organized topically, this text is organized canonically, revealing how the whole of Scripture speaks to contemporary mission realities. Comprehensive in scope, filled with biblical insight and missional expertise, this book is an essential resource for students and practitioners of crosscultural ministry and mission. By, Dr. Marvin J. Newell

Impossible People by Os Guinness

The church in the West is at a critical moment. While the gospel is exploding throughout the global south, Western civilization faces militant assaults from aggressive secularism and radical Islam. Will the church resist the seductive shaping power of advanced modernity? More than ever, Christians must resist the negative cultural forces of our day with fortitude and winsomeness. What is needed is followers of Christ who are willing to face reality without flinching and respond with a faithfulness that is unwavering. Os Guinness describes these Christians as “impossible people,” those who have “hearts that can melt with compassion, but with faces like flint and backbones of steel who are unmanipulable, unbribable, undeterrable and unclubbable, without ever losing the gentleness, the mercy, the grace and the compassion of our Lord.” Few accounts of the challenge of today are more realistic, and few calls to Christian courage are more timely, resolute?and hopeful. Guinness argues that we must engage secularism and atheism in new ways, confronting competing ideas with discernment and fresh articulation of the faith. Christians are called to be impossible people, full of courage and mercy in challenging times.

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made by Dr. Megan Best

What sort of contraception, if any, should I use? When does human life begin at fertilisation or at some point after that? What are the arguments for and against abortion? Is it OK to use genetic screening and other pre-natal tests to check for abnormalities in my unborn baby? Should Christians use IVF and other assisted reproductive technologies? What is the current state of embryonic stem cell research? These are just some of the many complex and emotion-laden questions we face in the rapidly changing field of reproductive medicine, and most Christians do so with two very significant handicaps: We don t have accurate up-to-date information about the medical and technological issues involved We have not thought through a sound, biblical framework for making ethical decisions in this area Dr Megan Best provides what is lacking in both of these vital areas.

Faith Steps JPEG

Faith Steps encourages and equips people of faith to boldly and respectfully engage our neighbors and our culture on controversial issues—not as political partisans but as wise and winsome ambassadors.

Marriage and sexual issues, freedom of faith and conscience, abortion, assisted suicide and human trafficking: The stands we take and the choices we make on such vital issues, as individuals and as a nation, matter now and for eternity. Whenever we adopt or reject God’s principles for living, we are taking momentous steps—faith steps—toward or away from God. Decisively rejecting the stifling notion that people of faith should remain mute on controversial social issues and shun the political arena, Faith Steps reveals the responsibility and opportunity for courageous and compassionate engagement with our neighbors and our culture.

ust Add Water DVD: Moral Relativism | Stem Cells Moral Relativism / Stem Cells

Session 1:

Overview of Moral Relativism (Patrick)
Moral relativism is at the heart of most of our currently contentious issues relating to sexual freedom: the sanctity of life and the ordering of virtue. This DVD takes the viewer through the arguments in non-technical language. Young people are very vulnerable because they can neither recognize nor deconstruct moral relativism, which is presumed to be true in all the social sciences. The worst feature of this is the cynical indifference of professors who know moral relativism is false but want their libertarian world, so they lie. 26 minutes


Session 2:

Overivew of Stem Cells…The Promise…The Debate (Stevens)
What have we learned over the last decade about stem cells? There is enormous potential for medicine, but the debate is, “Where do we get the cells?” The biblical and ethical principles are very clear. So why are scientists continuing to pursue embryonic stem cell research when there are over 70 therapies for diseases from adult stem cell research and none from embryonic stem cells? The ethics of medicine that has stood the test of time is at risk.

Do you need a new vision of God? Not the vague image we fold up and stuff in the back drawer of life, but the real God: the One who parts the Red Sea and shakes Mt. Sinai. Richard Swenson, physician and futurist, offers us the kind of God who stuns physicists with symmetry, mathematicians with precision, engineers with design, politicians with power, and poets with beauty. More than Meets the Eye is a four-part series (approximately 30 minutes for each part) on two DVDs, demonstrating a God who is brilliant and wise, powerful and precise, intimate and personal. The more we understand about God’s power, the less we worry about our weakness. The more we trust in God’s sovereignty, the less we fret about our future. To know Him is to trust Him; to trust Him is to rest in Him.

The narrow black metal frame is the perfect finishing touch. The frame is easy-access so you can personalize the oath with your own signature. Finished size is 15.5″ x 21.5″.

The text reads:

Christian Physician’s Oath

With gratitude to God, faith in Christ Jesus, and dependence on the Holy Spirit, I publicly profess my intent to practice medicine for the glory of God.

With humility, I will seek to increase my skills. I will respect those who teach me and who broaden my knowledge. In turn, I will freely impart my knowledge and wisdom to others.

With God’s help, I will love those who come to me for healing and comfort. I will honor and care for each patient as a person made in the image of God, putting aside selfish interests.

With God’s guidance, I will endeavor to be a good steward of my skills and of society’s resources. I will convey God’s love in my relationships with family, friends, and community. I will aspire to reflect God’s mercy in caring for the lonely, the poor, the suffering, and the dying.

With God’s blessing, I will respect the sanctity of human life. I will care for all my patients, rejecting those interventions which either intentionally destroy or actively end the lives of the unborn, the infirm, and the terminally ill.

With God’s grace, I will live according to this profession.

Christian Medical & Dental Associations (1991)

It becomes every person who purposes to give himself to the care of others, seriously to consider the four following things: First, that he must one day give account to the Supreme Judge of all the lives entrusted to his care. Second, that all his skill and knowledge and energy, as they have been given him by God, so they should be exercised for His glory and the good of mankind, and not for mere gain or ambition. Third, and not more beautifully than truly, let him reflect that he has undertaken the care of no mean creature; for, in order that he may estimate the value, the greatness of the human race, the only begotten Son of God became Himself a man, and thus ennobled it with his divine dignity, and far more than this, died to redeem it. And fourth, that the doctor being himself a mortal human being, should be diligent and tender in relieving his suffering patients, inasmuch as he himself must one day be a like sufferer.
Thomas Sydenham (1624 – 1689)

Just Add Water DVD: Marks of a Christian Doctor 1&2 Marks of a Christian Doctor 1&2

This series utilizes Norman Geisler’s twelve-point “Classical Apologetic” approach fashioned after Paul’s apologetic in Acts 17. Ministry involves both evangelism and apologetics. Apologetics (pre-evangelism) removes obstacles to faith using both special and general revelation. It reasonably explains why objections to Christianity are groundless; and seeks intellectual agreement on vital issues that must be acknowledged before the Gospel can be accepted.

“Decision-Making in Clinical Ethics” highlights the fact that modern healthcare involves many medical and ethical decisions for professionals, patients, and their families. Does being a Christian make a difference? Dr. Orr describes a four-quadrant method of reasoning, first introduced by Jonsen, Siegler, and Winslade in “Clinical Ethics,” with application of biblical principles and doctrines included in the decision-making process. Sharing personal experiences, Dr. Orr cautions professionals in their assessment of a patient’s quality of life merely by looking at their physical situation. Session 2 – “Is There Ever Justification for Physician-Assisted Suicide?” Should it be legalized as it is in Oregon? Should we follow the Dutch in their legalizing of euthanasia? As you will learn from this lecture, Dr. Orr’s passion for following a “Code of Ethics” derives from his knowledge and understanding of the quality and sanctity of life.

Session 1 – 24 minutes,

Session 2 – 19 minutes.

Sixth in a series of “instant meetings.” Knowledge, skills and attitudes are the guidelines for the evaluations of medical students by universities, but shouldn’t character be measured as well? Jesus described what is needed in building character when he taught on the mount. Dr. Patrick takes us through the beatitudes with an in-depth picture of how we might become salt and light to a dying world. Destroying evil and preserving good requires a right relationship with God and one another. Learn why Dr. Patrick thinks society should go to “the great book for a better understanding of what determines the cohesion of the society.” This topic is contained in two sessions, parts 1 and 2.

Session 1 – 35 minutes;

Session 2 – 34 minutes.

Each volume in the Just Add Water series includes advice from Dr. David Stevens on “How to Have a Meeting”.

Fifth in a series of “instant meetings.” Session 1 Why Ethics Courses Do Not Make Us Ethical. In this post-modern trend in medicine, what we once called “medical ethics” is now “bioethics.” Could this change explain why ethics courses are so unsuccessful in medical universities today? The moral relativist and multi-culturalist ideas have forced ethics into a packaged deal that Dr. Patrick calls the “Georgetown Mantra: autonomy, justice, beneficence, and non-malfeasance.” He brings to this presentation an intelligent, theoretical discussion on the “deeply covenanted” versus the “totalitarian” viewpoints on ethics and living within the framework of the law. Our self-understanding is at stake.

Session 2:
Why There Are No Hittites on the Streets of New York. When the Jews were an entire nation, the Hittites were a large empire. Civilizations come and go, but why do they not survive? Dr. Patrick teaches virtue is necessary in maintaining a flourishing culture and that we must be passionate about truth and goodness. While his lecture opens your eyes to the path of a decaying society, his conclusion will inspire you to get back to the dining room table where “real education” is taught. How we teach the children will determine their outcome and the survival of the society in which they live. Dr. Patrick clearly explains the reasons for the decay of the Hittites at the close of this lecture. Session 1 – 26 minutes; Session 2 – 32 minutes.

Fourth in a series of “instant meetings.” “Teaching in modern secular state-funded universities should be from a morally neutral position.” This controversial statement from a faculty board provoked Dr. Patrick to leave his career as professor. He now travels the world speaking to Christian and secular groups on moral issues in medicine, culture, and the integration of faith and science. In this session, he shares from biblical stories, poems and essays why he believes secular teaching of moral neutrality is “a figment of the liberal imagination.” Are you intimidated by the politically correct liberal tolerance? Are you allowing it to get in your way of understanding faith? Dr. Patrick offers a “test system” that will help us decide the kind of people we are to be.

 

Session 2:

Much More Than a Baby Dies In Abortion, states the fact that agreement about abortion is clearly impossible in our society, but asks if we still share a large degree of moral consensus. Dr. Patrick proposes the central question is not abortion, but how to decide if an action is medically ethical. Hear his views on the rationality of both sides of the issue and the consequences that have been incurred through the legalization of abortion. Does law without transcendent roots express power more than justice? Session 1 – 25 minutes; Session 2 – 29 minutes.

Session 1:

“Four Levels of Happiness” explores how everyone wants to be happy, but what is happiness? Has modern society lost all understanding of the true meaning of happiness? Dr. John Patrick, adapting original thoughts from Gonzaga University’s Robert Spitzer, presents his analogies on happiness at each level leading to level four, the ultimate level that does not end.

Session 2:

“Hippocrates and Medicine in the Third Millennium” For most people Hippocrates is a shadowy figure somehow connected to the ethical practice of medicine. They find comfort in thinking doctors are committed to the ethical standards of the Hippocratic Oath. Unfortunately, the truth is very few doctors take the oath and may argue its relevance to today’s society. Dr. Patrick focuses on the Oath and its implications under four headings:
» The necessity of transcendence
» A commitment to the sanctity of life
» Training within a moral ethos
» Preserving moral integrity

As physicians, you will be encouraged to practice medicine in the Hippocratic way in an effort to preserve the doctor-patient relationship.

Session 1 – 27 minutes.

Session 2 – 27 minutes.

Just Add Water DVD: Is There a Place for God in Medicine? | Communicating

Second in a series of “instant meetings.” Al Weir explores two subjects on this DVD, the first titled, Is There a Place for God in Medicine? As a medical oncologist, Dr. Weir faces tough decisions with his patients on a daily basis. Session 1 explores a topic that lies at the center of the task to care for those who suffer. Even if you are not a person of faith, when your patients are seriously ill, most of them will cry out to God for help. Answer questions such as:
» How do I put together God’s work and science in the healing of my patients?
» Do I have to take off my Christian hat when I come into the hospital and put on my scientific hat, then change again when I go home—or can I wear consistently a hat that says both Science and Christ?
» Is there a place for the God I serve in scientific healthcare?

Session 2 titled Communicating Bad News explores the methods used to communicate news to a patient that may not be well received. As physical, psychological, emotional, social and spiritual people, we as doctors and fellow humans are responsible for the whole person. Answer questions such as:
» What is this patient’s most important consideration when she hears the news?
» What do you feel when you are giving the news?
» Is communicating bad news an art or a science?
» What are your goals for the communication that is about to take place?
» What do you need to do the day before meeting with this patient?

Use this insightful tool to create an atmosphere for discussion and growth.

Session 1 – 31:30 minutes.

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made by Dr Megan Best

What sort of contraception, if any, should I use? When does human life begin—at fertilization or at some point after that? What are the arguments for and against abortion? Is it ok to use genetic screening and other prenatal tests to check for abnormalities in my unborn baby? Should Christians use IVF and other assisted reproductive technologies? What is the current state of embryonic stem cell research?

These are just some of the many complex and emotion-laden questions we face in the rapidly changing field of reproductive medicine, and most Christians do so with two very significant handicaps:

  • We don’t have accurate up-to-date information about the medical and technological issues involved.
  • We have not thought through a sound, biblical framework for making ethical decisions in this area.

Dr. Megan Best provides what is lacking in both of these vital areas. Built on extensive historical, biblical and medical research, Fearfully and Wonderfully Made is the comprehensive, accurate, biblically-based ethical handbook Christians have been waiting to read. By, Megan Best, BMed (Hons), MAAE.

Meetings can sap our energy, rupture community and thoroughly demoralize us. They can go on forever with no resolution. Or they can rush along without consensus just to “get through the agenda.” What if there was another way? Church boards and other Christian leadership teams have long relied on models adapted from the business world. Ruth Haley Barton, president of the Transforming Center, helps teams transition to a much more suitable model―the spiritual community that discerns God’s will together.
