Steve Clark uses scripture and his years of pastoral experience to describe how the Holy Spirit operates in the church and the individual to redeem humanity and renew God’s people. He provides practical help, carefully guiding readers to an understanding of the reality of the Holy Spirit and to an appreciation of what the action and the power of the Spirit can mean in the life of the individual Christian.
What does it mean to be baptized in the Spirit? Do the spiritual gifts operate in the Church today? Should every Christian pray in tongues? What is prophecy? This thorough book will help Christians of all traditions understand the charismatic renewal.
First published in 1972 and revised in 1996, this classic work is once again in print. The author proposes a comprehensive strategy for recentering Jesus Christ in the Church and building up His body by means of building Christian communities. Provides an essential historical background for Sword of the spirit communities.
Stephen Clark’s work on the Eucharist is an important attempt to recover the scriptural understanding of the rite. It is respectful of Catholic traditions, while suggesting ways of enabling the Biblical meaning to become more central. It is one of the most important liturgical works of recent years. (James Hitchcock)
How should covenant communities be related to the Catholic Church? What kind of relationship should a community have with its local bishop? These and other issues are examined in a thoughtful way. A selection of Catholic documents relating to the charismatic renewal, covenant communities, and ecumenical relationships are included.
These two books, first published in 1972 and 1974, are combined in this edition. Faith is not just a gift we receive at the beginning of our Christian life. Whenever we want to see God act we need faith. God has a plan for our life, but how do we know what He wants us to do? Especially helpful for new Christians, but all will benefit.
The 1980 classic is back in print! This stunningly comprehensive combination of scriptural research with sociological, anthropological, and psychological data is, I believe, unprecedented (Fr. Richard John Neuhaus). A scholarly, yet very readable and practical, presentation on an extremely important topic (Dr. James Dobson). Of all the multitude of books on this subject it is easily the best (Christianity Today).
An informative study of tithing from a Christian perspective. Steve Clark examines Old and New Testament passages about tithing, teaching on the subject through the Christian era, and differing approaches to tithing today. Malachi 3:10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.
An overview of the meaning of Christ’s redeeming work. “Stephen Clark’s rich and fascinating exposition of the most magnificent of all biblical themes is an outstanding achievement. Deep learning, deep Orthodoxy, and deep insight mark this book throughout. A devotional and ecumenical milestone.” (J.I Packer)
