Almost the whole of the New Testament is devoted, not to the portrayal of the significant and inspiring religious life of Jesus, but to a discussion of Paul’s religious experience and to a portrayal of his personal religious convictions. ​​The New Testament is a superb Christian document, but it is only meagerly Jesusonian. ​One of the most important things in human living is to find out what Jesus believed, to discover his ideals.

When we face trouble, feel joy, or just want spiritual inspiration, the Bible’s book of Psalms gives us wisdom and comfort. Rev. J.W.

Meister’s fresh reflections open up the book of Psalms for contemporary readers with helpful strategies for praying the psalms with Christian resolve. Grounded in his rich experiences as Presbyterian pastor, entrepreneur, and mission-minded videographer in Latin America and Israel, Meister offers valuable insights into the context, content, and claim of selected psalms. Written with clarity and compassion, Meister’s perceptive meditations on these psalms manage the rare combination of deepening both understanding and faith.

WHEN S. Teresa had taken possession and founded the first monastery of her nuns in Avila, 24th August 1562, she was summoned back to the monastery of the Incarnation, where she had made her profession, for that monastery was thrown into trouble by the act of the Saint, and the nuns were very angry with her. She was made to give an account of her conduct, and the provincial was sent for, before whom she had to make what defence she could: that defence she made in the presence of the nuns her sisters, and so successfully that no one was found to blame her. When she had appeased her sisters, she had to meet other troubles: the people of Avila had been also disturbed, and a new house of religion seemed for the moment to be an offence to them. The magistrates of the city resolved to suppress the monastery, but on finding that it was lawfully established with the consent of the bishop they had recourse to the courts of law. Aeterna Press
