In a time of so much uncertainty and chaos, it is increasingly difficult to feel that anything in the world is stable and reliable. However, there is one thing that can always be depended on and that is your relationship with God in Christ. In Walking With the Twelve, author Brad Fulton offers a brilliant and insightful look into the lives of the twelve men who had the closest relationship with Jesus Christ imaginable -- His twelve disciples. Like you, they were ordinary men who were chosen by Jesus to walk by His side to witness firsthand the power and the healing gifts of His ministry every day. As they journeyed with Christ and observed His interaction with believers and non-believers alike, their relationship with Him was strengthened and empowered. Though our society has changed, our strength and power also result from our journey with Jesus today. Using the teachings that the disciples learned during their time with Christ, Walking With the Twelve shows us that we too can grow and prosper from the love that God offers if we are ready to follow Him with open arms and hearts. So wait no longer, walk with the twelve, and let your faith in God be the key that opens the door to His constant and committed presence in your life -- starting today.

Many Christians are unable to give the names, or many details, of Jesus’ twelve disciples and yet we can learn many lessons from their lives. Each of them had his own personality but Jesus was able to change and use them in the service of the Kingdom of God. They had faults like we do. They were a mixed bunch of people, each with their own gifts and struggles. God calls all sorts of people, and we cannot forget that Jesus was selecting men for a leadership role in the early church. We can use the example of the apostles to inspire and teach us. This is a tremendously useful book that will have a place on many a minister’s bookshelf. From Andrew through to Judas, Ian Fleck’s survey is detailed but accessible and never dry. This is a timely book, coming at a time when many in the church are speaking of the need for discipleship, yet, all too often, little or nothing is ever said of the first disciples. This book opens up their lives to us. Rev. Dr. Paul Bailie Chief Executive, Mission Africa (Working in Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Chad and Kenya) Inspired by material concerning the Twelve disciples which he has assembled from the Four Gospels, and in interaction with other Scripture texts and some ancient traditions, Ian Fleck in this series of meditations has succeeded in deriving, from the lives of Jesus’ choses followers, challenging, inspirational and practical lessons for readers to apply in discipleship of Christ today. Rev Dr. Gordon Campbell Professor of New Testament, Union Theological College, Belfast

Beauchamp and Childress's Principles of Biomedical Ethics is a well-accepted approach to contemporary bioethics. Those principles are based on what Beauchamp and Childress call the common morality. This book employs New Testament theological themes to enhance the meaning of those principles of bioethics. The primary New Testament text for this study is the twin commands from Jesus to love God and love one's neighbor. The three theological themes developed from this study--the image of God, the covenant, and the pursuit of healing--are deeply embedded in the New Testament and in the ministry of Jesus. Three contemporary bioethics principles are used for this dissertation, based on The Belmont Report. They are the principles of respect for persons, justice, and beneficence. In each case, the theological themes are shown to enhance the meaning of these bioethics principles. Each of the three principles, as understood through the three theological themes, is applied to a current bioethics issue to demonstrate the efficacy of this approach. The three current issues addressed are the withdrawal or withholding of life-sustaining treatment, the distribution of health care in the Untied States, and the use of palliative care.
