As we usher in a new year, the creation can speak to us wherever we happen to be. If we are in the gentle snows or blustery winter winds of the Northern parts of America right now, we see the pristine holiness of the white-covered branches and feel thedesperate need for God’s warm embrace on a sub-zero evening.

If we are in a sunnier climate, we can enjoy the greenery that comes with a walk In the woods or the sounds of crashing breakers along the beach. God speaks to us everywhere if we have ears to hear.

ChickwithEggsOn this Discourse, T.M. Moore talks with us about how God reveals Himself through His Creation and the nature of revelation itself.

How do we find reliable revelation? T.M. makes a strong case that we have to start with the truth in the scripture as the basis for revelation, including sources outside of scripture.

God wants to reveal Himself, is constantly making Himself known—in Creation,in culture, and in the church, as well as in the Bible. We can find His good and perfect will, as well as His character, in these sources, made reliable by discernment given us by scripture and the Holy Spirit.

(This Discourse was recorded in October 2010.)

Emily tells a clearly-written, funny, and poignant story

about what her son, Max, has taught her (and her father) in the newly-released

book from Zondervan, Dancing with Max: A Mother and Son Who Broke Free.

As challenging as autism can be, this story is one of hope as God gave the

Colsons the strength and joy to discover what every person has to offer the

rest of us. Chuck describes this book as the most personal book he’s had a

part in since his autobiographical first book, Born Again. Chuck writes a

foreward and afterword to the story written by Emily.

As you’ll hear in this interview, Emily’s counsel for anyone having what

seems like a problem without a solution is to let God lead them one day

at a time. “If this were my last day on earth, what kind of mother would

I want to be?” she found herself asking at a key turning point in her

relationship with her now 19 year old son.

Life may not always go according to our best laid plans. But God is ready to

show us deep joys in the places we wouldn’t expect. This lesson and many

others that will touch your heart as you see how one mother and son not

only survived a tough situation but has emerged victorious with God’s help.

Moreover, this book will challenge your understanding of the handicapped

people in our midst await you by reading this fascinating book about real people

facing real challenges with God. Max Colson gives us another perspective

on God, as he is made in God’s image just like everyone else.

Emily’s book makes the perfect birthday or Christmas gift for someone you know

who is wrestling with a challenge that seems beyond their ability to cope. Or just

anyone who enjoys an inspiring human interest story.
