A Story of Faith, Hope and Love

Review of Book The first time I ever read Chad's Christian poetry, I was astounded. It was illuminating and alive. His poetry grabs onto you and sinks deep within, capturing the very essence of the soul. Understanding the simplicity of his poetry, yet the depth of it on a spiritual level, is fascinating. This statement conveys only a shadow of him. The heart of Chad Thieman can only be found in "101 Treasurable Poems of Faith, Hope, and Love." - Curtis Neil Curtis and I first met while working together at the Blockade-Runner Beach Resort, on Wrightsville Beach. He came to me and told me that he had read some of my work. He said that he would help me get published and ever since, we have worked together. Curtis is my investment partner and promotional manager. - Chad The book you are holding in your hands is a treasure chest of poetry, proverbs, and parables that can be used to reach many hearts. Every poem has a Bible verse prescribed to it, for further study and research on the topic discussed within the piece. This book is a great tool which can be used in adult Bible studies, youth groups, church retreats as well as for personal meditation and reflection.

Jeff Pollock's poetry is inspired by the only truth worth living and dying for in this mixed up world. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” There is one way to the Father and His Son Jesus Christ our Lord proved He is it! The Old Testament book of Isaiah says God keeps in perfect peace those who believe in Him and trust Him completely. A steady following, feeding, and focus on Jesus Christ brings peace to fruition, full enjoyment! No one deserves peace, no self-help guru or relaxation technique will give it; God’s peace is beyond understanding, though it is available to everyone. In faith invite him into your heart and begin to know Heaven’s peace, an eternal by-product of our decision to trust Him for salvation. God’s grace and ultimately His peace entered Jeff’s life through the eyes and heart of a beautiful redhead named Evelyn. The moment he looked in her eyes his life and ultimately his destiny changed. Right then and there he wrote her a love poem to Jesus, and God opened every door and made their love complete, complete in Him! This collection of original Christian poetry is based on Holy Scripture and written to encourage believers in their faith. Inspired by the courageous love of the author's wife, Evelyn, and the ever-faithful promises of our Savior Jesus Christ, this personal journal of encouragement is a work of heart and temporary tribute to His eternal grace and glory. Birthed in a genuine "born again" experience of love these heartfelt poems express a deep desire to know God more and experience Him in every aspect of life. Hope you will enjoy!

Professor Metzger has been a leader in New Testament studies for the past fifty years, through his teaching, his publications, his text-critical work, and his translation work. This volume brings his deep insight to three key epistles, focusing on three fundamental Christian virtues. The following pages set forth the teaching from three of the twenty-one letters contained in the New Testament: Galatians, 1 Peter, and 1 John. Each letter presents characteristic emphases of three prominent leaders in the early church: Paul, Peter, and John. Each letter arises out of quite different social and theological backgrounds, and each provides insight into the manner in which the special needs of the recipients of the letter were met. Key words and phrases from each letter are discussed within the context of the occasion that called forth the writing of the letter. At the same time the theological and devotional import of the writer's teaching is related to the Christian life, then and now. A concluding chapter weaves together theological and ethical themes common to the three principal strands of New Testament Christianity. Faith puts us on the path; hope keeps us walking; and love is what the Christian life is all about. --from the Preface

It may be an oversimplification to say that faith, hope, and love are all we need. But with an understanding of what these three are, we have a better understanding of what they can do in our lives. Our focus will turn from our needs and wants to what leads us into the answer of all these things—faith, hope, and love, which we find through our relationships with Jesus. It is simple but not always easy to allow the control of our life to transfer from us to God. It is important to know these three, what they are, and how we interact with them. We want to look at these three as the following: • Faith, the God-Possible • Hope, the God-Perspective • Love, the God-Power In these three we make all things about Jesus and less about us. The more we live in these three, the more we become like Him. These three, faith, hope, and love, will do the work to establish the kingdom of God in us and in others.

Life and death struggles, a common thread that connects us as human beings, are vividly revealed in this inspirational and unforgettable true story as told by a mother and her daughter of their babies, born with life threatening birth defects. Swept away on an uncharted and treacherous journey one thing clearly emerges, God, the ultimate thread that held them together through their darkest hours, was waiting for them there. He gave them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness so He might be glorified through their babies’ life and death struggles. (Isaiah 61: 3b) At every bend in the road lives were forever changed. The baby boy unable to ever speak a word about what he endured in his fight for life went to his grave never knowing what a giant impression his tiny handprint had left on every heart he touched...leaving this world a better place than he found it. For the little girl, the veil separating Heaven and Earth was lifted . . . “Mommy, I see an angel!” Hoping to get a glimpse, her mommy searched the hospital room eagerly. “Where do you see an angel?” her mommy asked. She pointed overhead, “Up there . . . in the corner of my room . . . one angel with big, pink wings.” Although her mommy didn’t see the Heavenly being, together they felt the comfort of its presence. On their timeless journey of faith, hope, and love, their loving God went with them through it all: healing hearts, changing lives, sharing their deepest sorrows, and sending his angels to comfort and help them. Their stories, formed in the crucible of life and death struggles, were transformed by the grace of God into a thing of beauty. “He hath made every thing beautiful in his time.” (Ecclesiastes 3: 11a, KJV)

"Dr. Rowena Shaw was born in the picturesque Philippine Islands. As a young child of ten, she contracted polio. Overnight, she was flung into the bleak world of paralysis and the subsequent, painful and arduous rehabilitation process to regain mobility. In her early twenties, a two month leisure trip to the U.S. to visit family members was unexpectedly transformed to permanent residency as a result of a "chance" meeting with her future husband at her aunt's home. Graduate degrees in School Psychology and Educational Administration from the state university enriched over a thirty year career as counselor and school psychologist at an elementary and middle school in the United States. Decades of professional relationships afforded Dr. Shaw a plethora of experiences and stories about colleagues, students, and parents, an amalgamation of woeful and amusing tales. Recollections and musings on family life, aging, travel, friendships, marriage and raising children entertain readers with LOL detours."
