1. Awake, Not Woke: A Christian Response to the Cult of Progressive Ideology

Author: by Noelle Mering
TAN Books (May 25, 2021)
English
256 pages

View on Amazon

Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light. Ephesians 5:14 The long-simmering crisis that grips our culture has exploded in recent years, leaving us divided and intransigent. Discourse seems futile when we are no longer a people with shared principles or even a shared understanding of reality.

What seems obvious to one person is patently absurd to the next. This collapse of meaning is not accidental. It has been plotted and documented for decades, and now presents in its current form as Woke ideology. Awake, Not Woke unmasks this ideology by examining its history, major players, premises, and tactics, showing us that Wokeness at its core is an ideology of rupture.

Indeed, it is an ideology with fundamentalist and even cult-like characteristics that is on a collision course with Christianity. With a wit and clarity that both exposes the absurd and mourns the brokenness of our culture, Noelle Mering provides answers to such questions as: Why does tolerance seem to only go in one direction?

The core idea of Romans is that we are saved by grace, through faith. In a format designed for small-groups or personal study, Max Lucado welcomes us into the freedom of grace with this exploration of Paul’s letter to the Roman church.

When we truly understand the power of grace, it sets us free from having to do good, so that we can do good. There’s no more have to, instead there’s I can do. In this liberating video study-the first of the 40 Days Through the Book series, Lucado focuses on several important themes in the book of Romans:The reality, danger, and power of sin the deepest problem humans face (Romans 1-2).

God’s grace, which is real, amazing, available to all (Romans 3-5). God has set us free, but the battle with sin continues becoming like Jesus demands continual surrender (Romans 6-8). We are a part of God’s beautiful story creation, fall, redemption, and restoration (Romans 9-11).

Christians follow in Jesus’ footsteps by humbly serving and sacrificially loving others (Romans 12-13). Christ-followers are called to live in fellowship with each other (Romans 14-16). Sessions include: The Problem We Face The Gift We’ve Been Offered The Battle We Fight The Story We’ve Joined The Path We Follow The Fellowship We Find Max Lucado’s study on the Book of Romans is the inaugural study in a series called 40 Days Through the Book.

Kathie Lee Gifford always believed the Bible held the answers to every question a person could ask. Her problem was, how could she be sure of what the Bible was really saying, when we are so separated from the ancient Jewish culture in which it was written?

As a lifelong student of Scripture, Kathie Lee Gifford has always desired a deeper understanding of God’s Word and a deeper knowledge of God Himself. But it wasn’t until she began studying the biblical texts in their original Hebrew and Greekalong with actually hiking the ancient paths of Israelthat she found the fulfillment of those desires.

In this six-session video study, Kathie Lee invites you to join her as she visits sites in Israel that have impacted her life. As she shares her story, Rabbi Jason Sobel, a messianic Jewish rabbi who was trained in the ancient rabbinical way, provides fascinating background details into the language, culture and heritage that make the story of the New Testament come alive.

Kathie Lee and Rabbi Sobel will take you and your group beyond the typical “Sunday school” teaching to examine the original texts of the Bible. Now you can walk with Kathie on a journey through the spiritual foundations of her faith: The Rock (Jesus Christ): Hear directly from Kathie about her life-changing and ever-deepening connection with Jesus, the Lover of her soul.
