CENTREVILLE, VA, 2/24/2018

Spiritual Trilogy: A Compilation by Stephen W. Hiemstra is now available in Kindle (978-1-942199-21-2) on Amazon.com and in EPUB (978-1-942199-27-4) on Google Play or Kobo.com according to T2Pneuma Publishers LLC of Centreville, Virginia. Details available at: http://www.T2Pneuma.com.

DISCUSSION

This trilogy combines three books published previously: A Christian Guide to Spirituality, Life in Tension, and Called Along the Way. Together they chronicle a spiritual journey during the period from 2013 through 2017. The first two books focus on the question—who is God?—while the third book focuses on the question—who are we? The call to faith and ministry is personal but it is also corporal, being informed by the community of faith at one time and in one place.

The original books have been reproduced as published. Offering them together makes them available more economically and draws attention to their common purpose. Because spirituality is lived belief, it is important to reflect on what we say we believe and what we actually practice. This reflective process is inherently stressful but it is a normal part of our Christian journey as we prepare in this life for the next.

Hear the words; walk the steps; experience the joy!

Author Stephen W. Hiemstra (MDiv, PhD) is a slave of Christ, husband, father, volunteer pastor, writer, and speaker. He lives with Maryam, his wife of 30+ years, in Centreville, VA and they have three grown children.

Key words

Beatitudes, Christianity, spirituality, Christian memoir, Jesus, Bible, devotion, spiritual growth, and faith.

(In reference to A Christian Guide to Spirituality)
We live in a fallen world. It leads to life in tension, and sometimes a life full of stress. Stephen Hiemstra takes us on a needed tour of the kind of character it takes to face such a life.

–  Darrell L. Bock, Dallas Theological Seminary

(In reference to Life in Tension)

 

Have you ever wondered if the church in America is mortally wounded? Is God really dead as the infamous 1966 Time magazine cover reported? This memoir offers evidence to the contrary.

Hiemstra is now available in both paperback (978–1942199045) and Kindle (978-1942199052; ASIN: B01KW0ICY8) on Amazon.com according to T2Pneuma Publishers LLC of Centreville, Virginia.

DISCUSSION:

When God comes into our lives, we change.

Our new identity is in Christ comes into tension with our old identity in ourselves as the Holy Spirit works in our hearts and minds. This tension arises between who we were and who God created us to be, between us and God, and between us and those around us. The Apostle Paul calls the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives sanctification.

Hear the words; Walk the steps; Experience the joy!

Life in Tension reflects on Jesus’ Beatitudes in the context of scripture.  The Beatitudes serve as an introduction to the Sermon on the Mount and lay out Jesus’ priorities in teaching his disciples. Because the sermon serves as a kind of ordination service for the Apostles, the importance of the Beatitudes for the early church, Christian spirituality, and discipleship today cannot be overstated.

Author Stephen W. Hiemstra (MDiv, PhD) is a slave of Christ, husband, father, tentmaker, writer, and speaker. He lives with Maryam, his wife of 30+ years, in Centreville, VA and they have three grown children.

Key word for this book include: Christianity, spirituality, Beatitudes, Jesus, Bible, devotion, and theology.

We don’t often think of our life as one lived in tension, but as believers that’s exactly how we live. Stephen Hiemstra’s Life in Tension takes us through the Beatitudes and provides a blueprint for Christians to navigate this tension with ourselves, with the world, and with Christ.                                                                 – Sarah Hamaker, Author

The Christian life is filled with tension, paradox, and upside down requisites for obedience to the biblical text and the clarion call of God.

– Stephen Macchia, Pierce Center for Disciple-Building

Stephen Hiemstra’s Life in Tension reminds me of Bonhoeffer’s   Cost of Discipleship, because it is an earnest, personal effort to hear and follow the voice of Jesus here and now.                                                                                    – Jonathan Jenkins, Pastor
