    The Heroes of the Faith book series by multiple authors includes books Heroes of the Faith: Corrie Ten Boom: Faith Triumphs, David Livingstone: The Pathfinder, Fanny Crosby: The Hymn Writer, and several more. See the complete Heroes of the Faith series book list in order, box sets or omnibus editions, and companion titles.   The surprising fact about today’s evangelical “identity crisis” in North America is that nothing about it should be surprising. The conflicts and tensions in the movement today have been present for decades (centuries even), and the strengths and weaknesses of the movement are so tightly intertwined that one can hardly imagine evangelicalism without its positives and negatives.

      In this book, Richard Pratt explores what being made in God’s image means for our lives here on earth. Engaging God’s World: A Christian Vision of Faith, Learning, and Living, by Cornelius Plantinga, Jr. – This book explains the central themes of the Christian faith. Faith Book is a Christian Community site where we are 'Working Together in Union with Christ' to spread the Gospel of Faith in Jesus Christ.

      Another common theme is the contrast in much of the "death of irony" discourse between a putatively defunct ironic culture in which "nothing is sacred" and an allegedly emerging ethos of sincerity, tradition, value, and meaning, all of which have deep connections for many to religion and faith.   Buy Ironies of Faith by Anthony M.

From the virgin birth to the death conquering death of Christ, the Christian faith is a religion of ironies, historical and spiritual. Maybe one of them is precisely that the spiritual is the historical, that the physical is the locus of the spiritual.

The contradiction between what one of the characters believes to be true and what the action or plot shows to be true is the typical function of dramatic irony. How does the book of Job help disciples of Jesus Christ remain faithful to God as they suffer—or walk alongside others who suffer—in ways that are extreme and inexplicable.
