If you are running from God, if the ups and downs of life make you feel like you’ve been thrown overboard into the sea, or if you are wondering what God is up to in your life, this book is for you. Today, many Christians are confused about the nature of God and His grace. Because so many in the church are beguiled by distorted images of God, they worship a God of their own making. In Thrown Overboard, Dr. Philip masterfully draws from the life of the rebellious prophet Jonah what we may learn about the nature of man, the nature of God, the work of God’s grace, and the redemptive ministry of Christ. The reader will gain a deeper insight into the wideness of God’s grace and how God works through our weaknesses to accomplish His purposes in our lives. It is a must-read for anyone who longs to have the heart of God.
“Thrown Overboard” is a vivid reminder of Jonah’s life and the grim realities and decisions Jonah made and how God in His Mercy dealt with him. Dr. Abraham Philip helps the reader to understand Jonah’s life perspective and the applications to our lives today. It is an awesome reminder of how great and loving our God IS as is so clearly evident in Jonah’s life. – P. Reardon, Texas
The task of being a leader in the present conceptual age is challenging. Leaders everywhere are confronted with the question, what does it take to lead in this shifting global economy that is characterized by an abundance of goods and services, increasing competition from Asia, and mind-boggling automation? If you think that mere technical competence and mastery of information would do, think again.
In this easy-to-read booklet, Dr. Philip describes how the current context of the American leader is changing and gives six key practices that are required of every leader for effective leadership in our changing environment. These proven practices are drawn from published works, as well as his experience of training nationals in different countries of the world and working in various leadership positions in the healthcare industry.
This book briefly describes some principles that should be considered when investigating the origin of the universe. This is a helpful resource for sharing Christ with others, especially those who believe that the only reliable source of truth is science.
Are you growing strong in your faith? Or is your faith in God getting weaker with each passing day? Are you growing in the grace of God and in His knowledge? The Bible says, “The people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits” (Dan. 11:32). Those who set their hearts on God go from “strength to strength” (Ps. 84:7).
“Strength to Strength” is a collection of thirty-one short messages or biblical studies in which the content, structure, and motivational thrust of each message are rooted in and governed by the chosen text. They are intended to communicate divine truths drawn from the text and to encourage you, the reader, to grow in the faith. Collectively, they deal with some aspect of the five movements of salvation history: creation, alienation, redemption, sanctification, and glorification.
