The Second Vatican Council says, "We ought to try to discover a new reverence for the Eucharistic mystery. Something is happening that is greater than anything we can do. The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; it is the font from which all her power flows." This profound statement about the Eucharist stands at the center of this book by Cardinal Ratzinger. He compellingly shows us the biblical, historical, and theological dimensions of the Eucharist. The Cardinal draws far-reaching conclusions, focusing on the importance of one's personal devotion to and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, for the personal reception of Communion by the individual Christian, as well as for the life of the Church. For Ratzinger, any transformation of the world on the social plane grows out of the celebration of the Eucharist. He beautifully illustrates how the omnipotent God comes intimately close to us in the Holy Eucharist, the Heart of Life.

The end of the world is coming. From roadside signs to science fiction films, this slogan underscores our society’s nervous fascination with the future. Whether it’s a giant asteroid, a worldwide plague, or some other global catastrophe, the end of the world is a terrifying prospect—at least for those who have no idea what it will be like. For Christians, however, the end of the world should be anything but dreadful. In fact, it should be something we actually look forward to. Why? Because God has told us how the world will end. And He has assured us that the end of this age will mark the beginning of a new, glorious one in which we will serve and worship Him in sinless perfection. Our eternal hope, as believers, is intimately tied to the end of this world. All of this is laid out in the book of Revelation. Not only is Revelation the inspired Word of God, it is also the only New Testament book that includes a promised spiritual blessing for those who study and apply its message. As such, it is an essential part of every Christian’s devotional life. Those who ignore Revelation deprive themselves of a rich treasure of divine truth, and the promised blessings that come from understanding that truth. Join John MacArthur as he explains the book of Revelation in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.
The Bible tells one story. It's about how a Holy God deals with a sinful, fallen and broken people. At the center of that story is Jesus. Fellowship was broken in the Garden of Eden but God didn't really go anywhere. The story of "God with us" doesn't begin and end in the Gospels. GOD IS NEAR is his promise to his people, and it's found in every book of the Bible. There should not be a disconnect between the Old Testament and the New. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are actually at work throughout. Much of what God did in bringing Israel out of Egypt and establishing a kingdom is symbolic of the Christian church. Moses is a type of Christ in many different ways. The tabernacle, veil of separation, lamb of sacrifice and office of the High Priest are all meant to help New Testament believers understand who Christ is and what he does. God is Near: His Promise to His People does more than analyze the relationship of the books of the Bible. Beginning in the Garden of Eden we embark on a journey through God's Word, exploring the relationship between God and his chosen people. God is holy and only what is holy can come into his presence. But he has always been close! God spoke to Moses from the burning bush, appeared to the Hebrews in pillars of fire and cloud, and radiated his visible presence above the tabernacle. At Sinai his people saw him descend on the mountain and heard his voice, and at Jericho they obediently watched as he won their battles for them. God was in the manger at Bethlehem and on the cross at Calvary. He filled the upper room in Acts 2 and the hearts of 3,000 believers who repented and were baptized that same day. God's Holy Spirit dwells today in the heart of every believer. He is not waiting for us in some darkened church sanctuary; just as Jesus said he must be about his Father's business so must his children today. The Kingdom of God was at hand in Jesus' day and the people of his Kingdom today are sharing the Gospel, giving out food, digging wells
