About this deal

From 1987 to 1991, Sarah and Stephen were on loan to Mission to North America, working with the Westminster Japanese Church in Atlanta, Georgia. I suppose it’s not surprising that the most popular book reviews are all for books I disagreed with in various ways. The publisher describes the book in this way: “After many years of writing her own words in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to be more attentive to the Savior’s voice and begin listening for what He was saying.

I immediately understood that it was prominent in my life and immediately began to take steps to address it. The book is written in the voice of Jesus Christ speaking directly to the reader and thereby claiming new revelation from God. I mean, Jesus’ words to Sarah are literally packaged into a devotional, so that we can do our devotionals from them every day. In 1977, Sarah and Stephen joined World Presbyterian Missions, which in 1983 merged into Mission to the World (MTW), the global missions-sending agency of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).Young was a member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), where her husband Stephen is an ordained minister and third-generation Christian missionary to Japan. Moving forward, legacy users wishing to access additional Sarah Young titles inside the app will need a subscription to unlock the additional content and features. The Bestsellers,” as you know, takes a brief look at Christian books that have sold at least 1 million copies. With 365 devotions, this padded hardcover edition is a favorite for its small size and is a perfect fit on a nightstand or in a travel bag. These women practiced waiting quietly in God’s Presence, pencils and paper in hand, recording the messages they received from Him.

It can’t be denied: The Jesus of Sarah Young sounds suspiciously like a twenty-first century, Western, middle-aged woman. Even as she struggled with her own physical health, and battled cancer, she continued the ministry of these daily prayers. There is no way to avoid her claim that she is communicating divine revelation, a claim that raises a host of questions and concerns, not the least of which is the doctrine of Scripture alone which assures us that the Bible and the Bible alone is sufficient to guide us in all matters of faith and practice. Why I’m a better pastor for you than… / Consider your attitude to the local church / Orthodoxy is a friend of the young / Lord’s Supper is not a pot luck / Kindle deals / and more. In 1991, Sarah and Stephen moved to Melbourne, Australia, and began a Japanese language church in cooperation with the Presbyterian Church of Victoria.Far and away the most troubling aspect of the book is its very premise—that Sarah Young hears from Jesus and then dutifully brings his messages to her readers. Words that make you increasingly aware of God's presence, allowing you to bask in His peace, His joy, and His everlasting love. iOS and Android are different app markets, and app purchases do not transfer between the two platforms, so a change in the platform does require the download of a new app. Notice that her solution to addressing the desire for Jesus’ Presence and Peace is not Scripture or any other means of grace, but the very messages she provides in her book. She credited her background in philosophy and Francis Schaeffer’s Escape from Reason as her motivation for studying with L’Abri Fellowship, a Christian community in a tiny Alpine village in France, where she became a Christian.

Legacy users will keep all content purchased prior to the change in December 2023 and can access it without a subscription. While both the iOS and Android apps look and function the same way, their similarities are only skin deep. While this is not necessarily an unbiblical or inappropriate message, it hardly matches the thrust of the Bible which always pushes toward or flows from the gospel of Jesus Christ.Young admits that her revelation is different from the Bible’s (“The Bible is, of course, the only inerrant Word of God; my writings must be consistent with that unchanging standard”), but does not explain how her writings are different. Young does not only endorse her practice of listening, but goes so far as to elevate it as the chief spiritual discipline. This is not a far cry from a practice known as “automatic writing” which Wikipedia describes as “an alleged psychic ability allowing a person to produce written words without consciously writing.

I had been writing in prayer journals for years, but that was one-way communication: I did all the talking. ECPA reports that “Thomas Nelson began its partnership with the Salem Media group to provide 60-second daily messages on Eric Metaxas’ show, which is carried on more than 100 stations nationwide and worldwide on SiriusXM Radio. According to publisher Thomas Nelson, it “continues to grow in units sold each year since it was released [and] has surpassed 15 million copies sold.We supply a fantastic range of beautiful, practical and contemporary Christian themed gifts for women, men and children, including jewellery, stationery, art, home decor and prayer and devotional items.
