The Beer Drinker's Guide to God: The Whole and Holy Truth About Lager, Loving, and Living
The Beer Drinker's Guide to God: The Whole
It’s no accident that Jesus’ first miracle was turning water into wine! Written by an Episcopalian priest-slash-bar owner, this thoughtful, well-written book of spiritual essays distills lessons about the character of God from stories about adult beverages.“Oh taste and see that the Lord is good.” —Psalm 34:8 Being upright does not mean you have to be uptight—at least according to Father Bill Miller, an Episcopal priest/bar owner. As a fan of both spirits and the Holy Spirit, he is very familiar with the intoxicating lure of some of God’s finer creations, and in The Beer Drinker’s Guide to God he brews up insightful, beautifully written reflections about the strange intersections of God, and, well…beer. In this humorous collection of essays, he weaves together stories from his life in ministry, his travels in search of the world’s best Scotch, his conversations with Trappist monks, and colorful evenings in his bar, Padre’s. He also reflects on the lessons he’s learned from baseball, Playboy bunnies, Las Vegas, and his attempts to become chaplain to the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, all while (somehow) crafting essays about the spiritual importance of generosity, sacrifice, openness, and spiritual transformation. Really. Essays include: · WWJD: What Would Je...

The Search for God and Guinness: A Biography of the Beer that Changed the World
The Search for God and Guinness: A Biography
The history of Guinness, one of the world’s most famous brands, reveals the noble heights and generosity of a great family and an innovative business. It began in Ireland in the mid 1700s. The water in Ireland, indeed throughout Europe, was famously undrinkable, and the gin and whiskey that took its place devastated civil society. It was a disease ridden, starvation-plagued, alcoholic age, and Christians like Arthur Guinness—as well as monks and even evangelical churches—brewed beer that provided a healthier alternative to the poisonous waters and liquors of the times. This is where the Guinness tale began. Now, 250 years and over 150 countries later, Guinness is a global brand, one of the most consumed beverages in the world. The tale that unfolds during those two and a half centuries has power to thrill audiences today: the generational drama, business adventure, industrial and social reforms, deep-felt faith, and the noble beer itself. "Frothy, delicious, intoxicating and nutritious! No, I'm not talking about Guinness Stout—I'm talking about Stephen Mansfield's fabulous new book...The amazing and true story of how the Guinness family used its wealth and influence to touch millions is an absolute inspiration." — Eric Metaxas, New York Times best-selling author "It...

Money. Sex. Beer.
Ditching religion for the joy of incarnation! A Biblical companion to the happy life. Learn how Gnostic dualism invaded the church, killed the party and taught you the world was evil. Religious mindsets of dualism have blinded us to the God-given joys and pleasures of this world. We have often separated our spirituality from earthiness. But did Jesus really condemn all enjoyment of this world? Is God the creator or the enemy of this world's delights? In this scandalous upcoming book, John Crowder exposes the encroachment of Gnosticism over 2,000 years of church history ... the idea that the natural, material world is somehow evil and at odds with our spirituality. He makes the case that God is pro-party, and that Biblical guidelines of morality are issued to preserve and enhance our joy - never to diminish it. Hitting the most controversial, real-life topics imaginable - money, sex, alcohol and more - Crowder exposes unbiblical religious parameters that have worked against us. Legalisms that, instead of curbing sin, have actually caused it to increase! In the Incarnation, Jesus Christ baptized the material world - erasing every notion of separation between the natural and the divine life. Experience a life of wholeness, gratitude and recover your appetite for scriptures as you se...

God of Beer
In the remote mill town of Salmon Falls, Vermont, the dead of winter can feel like death itself. Jobs are scarce, kids are bored, and it sometimes seems there’s nothing better to do than drink. But when eighteen-year-old Kyle Nelson and a motley group of friends decide to challenge both the legal drinking age and the local drinking culture with a daring act of civil disobedience, they find there’s more to do than they ever imagined. Garret Keizer’s gripping novel about young men and women in revolt bears witness to the power of ideas, the bonds of friendship, and the trials of working-class kids on the margins of American society. His story never flinches in the face of those forces that conspire against, but needn’t overcome, the resilient spirits of the young.

Pub Theology: Beer, Conversation, and God
Pub Theology: Beer, Conversation, and
From London to New York to Ann Arbor, people are gathering in pubs and bars to communicate, connect, and learn from one another over the topic of religion, of all things. In 'Pub Theology', pastor, writer, and pub theologian Bryan Berghoef draws from his own experience in one such setting in northern Michigan. Berghoef contends that for too long the church has insisted on setting the terms for how one can find and encounter God. Yet what if God is to be found in places we haven't been looking at all: in a coworker who doesn't believe in God, in a Buddhist neighbor, in a friend who prefers a yoga studio to a sanctuary?This book will move readers to shift toward a more chastened, humble, and inviting faith. A faith that seeks not to teach, but to learn; not to speak, but to listen. A faith that will have a seat at the table in the important religious conversations our world is having.Real-life stories gleaned from conversations and encounters during pub theology gatherings, combined with the author's own experience in grappling with these issues, make for an intriguing and enlightening read.So what are you waiting for? Pull up a chair and join the conversation!Endorsements: "Bryan Berghoef has given us the most complete presentation to date of what pub theology is, why it exists, a...

God, Beer, and Sundays: 18: Abandonment (18 Wheels:
Upon completion of the first book in this series, most readers found themselves curious as to where and how our truck driving hero was raised. Take a journey back to explore the young mans humble beginnings and the basis of what his adult life has become. Faced with typical childhood drama, little Hodechi makes a decision that will change his life. Reflecting upon the decisions that any of us made as children, it puts all of our adult lives in technicolor. Could who we are at this particular moment be absolutely shattered if you had made a different decision at a young age? What if you decided to go on that roller coaster that you were afraid of and by chance that same ride was one to fail and crash? What if your rejection from the cheerleading squad led you to a path of medicine instead of cheer, and you developed a lifesaving serum instead of a new cheer to pump up a crowd. How much richer are our lives solely on the decisions that we made as young, innocent children?

Ah, yes... beer... one of God's finest gifts. Okay, so this isn't really what Mr. Franklin said all those years ago, but it has been so commonly repeated that it is now widely recognised as a Benjamin Franklin quote. His original reference was to wine, but wine/beer? Meh. Who cares? It's funny. A 100-page, perfect-bound notebook, with neatly-lined interior pages.

JOHN MUIR’S AUGUST HEAD John Muir’s queer and sundry quotations and exclamations shine through pane after pane of Yosemite Valley’s buildings. Less a ghost and more of a sacred mascot, his bearded visage seems to hang down from every shaggy tree and to impose itself in the crinkled cliff-shadows on every side of this immense religious fosse into which tourists pour as amply as blood or wine. “How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountain!” “I never saw a discontented tree.” “The mountains are calling, and I must go.” My other books on CreateSpace are: createspace.com/3842640 Of flares, of flowers (142 erotic sonnets) createspace.com/3679722Greetings from Mt.
