Item description for More Alive Than Ever by Forrest Chaffee...

Overview
The Gospel of John has a unique function - unlike the synoptic Gospels, which provide chronological accounts of Jesus' life and ministry, John weaves the story and words of Jesus around seven miracles that he calls "signs." These signs are the visible evidence that Jesus is the source of true life. Through his spoken words and healing power, Jesus' inspiring life force flows outwardly to all who believe in him. This in-depth exploration of the miracle stories in John's Gospel helps you discover how to tap in to this powerful life force and become more alive than ever. Each chapter studies the scripture text of a miracle to identify the quality associated with it, then offers numerous illustrative examples demonstrating how this "sign" or trait can positively influence daily living. With thought-provoking discussion questions included, More Alive Than Ever is an excellent resource for small group Bible study or adult Sunday school classes. Its convenient illustration index also makes this a rich source of meaningful metaphors and stories for preaching. But even more, it's stimulating reading for anyone who wants greater insight into these marvelous accounts of God's power at work. Chapters include: ? Joy Is Like The Rain John 2:1-12 ? Trust Is An Umbrella John 4:46-54 ? Hope Can Be Moving John 5:1-9 ? Bread Is Always Needed John 6:1-14 ? Peace Is Like A Flowing River John 6:16-21 ? Seeing Is Getting The Mud Out Of Your Eyes John 9:1-41 ? New Life Is Like A Grain Of Wheat John 11:1-44

Schmalenberger Former President Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary Forrest Chaffee has an amazing gift of using stories and illustrations to help his readers discover what he is attempting to say.

Chaffee takes the signs of Jesus and brings them down to very practical and earthy applications of everyday life. (from the Foreword) Paul M. Werger Bishop Emeritus, Southeastern Iowa Synod Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Forrest Chaffee opens up the signs of John's Gospel to us as he also opens up his own life and experiences for us to behold. Pastors and laypersons alike will enjoy his rich storytelling abilities. This engaging work, deeply rooted in a faithful pastor's heart, is a resource that will surely help others grow in their faith - and become more alive than ever Daniel Solomon Senior Pastor, Augustana Lutheran Church Boone, Iowa In its sensitivity and simplicity, Forrest Chaffee's pastoral style penetrates to the heart of the Fourth Gospel's theology, which is the sacramental nature of all life. Both the Evangelist and Pastor Chaffee encourage readers to find God in the immediacy of daily existence. Edward W. Amend Emeritus Professor of Religion and Humanities University of Northern Iowa Forrest Chaffee served for over 40 years as the pastor of Lutheran congregations in Minnesota and Iowa.
