Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?
Whether atheist, Muslim, Mormon, evangelical, spiritual-but-not-religious, “other,” or “none,” everyone seems to have an opinion about Jesus. For 2,000 years people have been making some radically different claims about Jesus of Nazareth—the most influential person to ever live. Today, it’s not getting any easier. Every flimsy theory and “alternative fact” about Jesus refuses to die thanks to the internet.
Was Jesus just a larger-than-life legend? A regular rabbi with family troubles? Was he progressive? Conservative? Schizophrenic? Was he a zealous revolutionary? God in the flesh? Or just a really nice guy like your hippy neighbor?
Reintroducing Jesus: Uncovering Jesus of Nazareth in the Misinformation Age looks at the best historical information available to rediscover Jesus of Nazareth in a world full of noise.

Not long ago, students and church members began sharing with me about being approached by people who talked to them about "Mother God." This "Mother God Cult," as people started to call them, was actually the World Mission Society Church of God.
According to their website, by 2008 they had one million registered members worldwide. With churches established in New York and Los Angeles, their presence in the U.S. is growing.
“The World Mission Society Church of God believes in God the Mother"—who lives today in South Korea—and “salvation will never be given to those who are stuck on the name of Jesus.” All must accept “Christ Ahnsahnghong,” their founder, and his wife, Mother God, for salvation.
All of these teachings, they claim, are supported by biblical evidence.
Is the World Mission Society Church of God the one, true church? Is Mother God our only hope for salvation?
In the tradition of Walter Martin’s classic The Kingdom of the Cults, this short book, Searching the Bible for Mother God, scrutinizes the biblical claims of the World Mission Society Church of God and sees if they pass the test.

Devotions By a Rural Church Secretary
(& Crazy Cat Lady)
By Diane House DiSebastian
Edited by Steve DiSebastian
In 2013, my mother became the secretary of the same church her father once pastored in a valley of rural Pennsylvania. Each month, she writes a short devotional for the church's newsletter.
She never expressed much confidence in her writing, but what she created was an honest record of a woman wrestling with faith during the ups and downs of life while never losing hope in Christ.
She created something uniquely hers, with the humor of a single country girl from PA, the blunt honesty of a divorced wife from NJ, and the mischief of a PK.
Oh, and there’s cats… so many cats.
