Whether clergy or laity, everyone struggles to discern God's guidance when facing difficult choices. So when a book like Enter by the Gate comes along that offers clear, solid, scriptural guidance, it is sure to become a favorite. Enter by the Gate offers 7 insights to guide those who seek to discern God's guidance when making difficult decisions. The insights are gleaned from John 10, the story of the good shepherd, and are Jesus' criteria for discernment. Gracefully written by Flora Slosson Wuellner, this book is filled with wisdom and gentleness. It emphasizes the many and varied ways by which God speaks to us and the ways by which we hear. Without harshness or judgment, Wuellner clearly names the warning signs of false guidance. Being aware of these signs helps us to identify misleading voices around and within us that masquerade as God's voice. Wuellner explores communal pressure, powerful ideologies, mistaken or manipulative leaders, traditions and expectations, inner unhealed hurts, angers, needs, zealousness and compulsive responsibility, honest mistakes within good intentions. Each chapter concludes with a reflection and meditation than can be used individually, in one-on-one guidance, or in a group setting.

A teenage girl has vanished in Santa Fe. Nearby, in the Trappist monastery of St. Mary of the Snows, a beautiful young nun is stabbed to death. Father Nicholas Fortis is on sabbatical at St. Mary's, and when Lieutenant Christopher Worthy of the Detroit Police Department is flown in to help find the missing teenager, the Orthodox monk asks his friend to delve into the nun's murder as well. The two men make a perfect team: the monk's gregarious manner opens hearts and the detective's keen intuition infiltrates psyches. The Book of Matthew refers to the "narrow gate" that leads to heaven. Each of the key players in these two cases was rattling heaven's gate in a frantic and even dangerous quest for salvation. Lieutenant Sera Lacey of the Santa Fe Police, with her captivating looks and insight into the Native Americans and cultures of the Southwest, proves both a boon and a distraction for Worthy. As Father Fortis navigates the social hierarchy of the monks of St. Mary's, he begins to fear their secret agendas. Bowing to the pressure to solve both cases, the investigators let the clues lead them in opposite directions. At the end of one of those paths, Death awaits. Book one in a new detective series featuring Christopher Worthy and Father Fortis.

In todays post-Christian culture of liberalism, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that to be Christian means to be called out of the world and be set aside unto the Lord Jesus Christ. As we approach the end of the age and of the world, as we know it, the Lord continues to give numerous heavenly visitations and dreams about him to take Christians home in what we call the rapture of the church. One recurring theme in many of these supposedly spiritual experiences is the number of professing Christians that could be going to hell. Well, it is easy to dismiss these as figments of hallucinations and fertile imaginations gone wild. But a cursory glance at the church scene clearly shows that something is not right with many of professing believers. This book seeks to jolt Christians into rediscovering their first love and awake from their slumber to ensure that their lives match their profession. Christianity is one of the most liberal of all religions. In Christian theology, it is God who takes the initiative to reconcile mankind to himself (John 3:16). He make total and full provision for man to receive forgiveness of sins and come into a personal relationship with God without any expenditure or effort on his/her part. In that sense, Christianity is an easy religion. That is the essence of grace. But that could be deceptive because it is easy for the Christian adherent to fall into the false notion that grace means anything goes. This Christian discipleship book attempts to wake Christians to the fact that like an athlete, there is a right lifestyle and a way to compete that will guarantee you a medal at the Olympics and a wrong lifestyle and a way to compete that could lead to disqualification and a loss of potential medal. Much illustration is made of the Old Testament saints who started their journey with the Lord with optimistic enthusiasm but whose faith was made shipwreck along the way. This is true of the Israelites who were delivered from Egyptian bondage and servitude and journeyed to the Promised Land, but the text says, With most of them, God was not well pleased, and their bodies were scattered in the wilderness. The text clearly says these experiences were written as warnings and examples to us because if we make the same mistakes they did, a similar fate awaits us (1 Corinthians 10:113). Wisdom gives away what you cannot keep to gain what you cannot lose. In our day and age, the greatest snares are relational issues of unforgiveness, bitterness, and strife. We are also warned against such moral weaknesses as fornication, adultery, and other aberrant sexual behavior. The Bible clearly warns that those who practice these would not inherit the kingdom of God. This is a major theme of most of the New Testament Epistles. This book is also evangelistic because at its heart, it seeks to showcase the love of God and his eternal invitation to all mankind to be reconciled to him.

This book begins with a simple childhood memory about a lesson in the importance of blind obedience as opposed to having to know why our parents made rules for us, one to which every reader can relate. From there, the expanded theme becomes more than evident: Most Christians today don't think deeply enough about their choices while they are alive on Earth and where they might lead us to in eternity. The central image in the book is from Matthew 7:13-14 and John 10:9. Jesus tells His listeners there, "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." "I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture." The thing is that both gates lead to heaven. Most Christians would ask, "What, then, is the difference which gate we go through? If we attend church one day a week and lead a life that meets the basic requirements of the outward trappings of a religious person ("Don't murder anyone, and don't steal from people") what's the big deal?" Author Danny Clifford's insight into this teaching is profound. Some people's assurance of salvation is a delusion. To enter the narrow gate of the kingdom we must knock, that is, request that God make us citizens of his kingdom. The difficulty of Jesus' way includes embracing by repentance both persecution and the ethics of the kingdom taught in the Sermon on the Mount. (Matthew 5:10-12)Jesus says that the wide gate is the "easy" way, resting on one's laurels, seeking prosperity for themselves, and not at all willing to make any sacrifices. This book makes us realize that Jesus intends for his words to jar us from complacency, to consider the genuineness of our commitment to him. A major revelation for this Editor was when Author Clifford insists that God can't complete His plan for salvation on Earth without the help of ordinary human beings. We are the instruments and the agents of His power. The illustrations in this book are beautiful - sometimes startlingly so - and exquisite in detail. They add to and perfectly complement Mr. Clifford's patient and insightful interpretations of the various Scripture passages that convey the essential messages in Enter Through the Narrow Gate.
