Baptism is literally a Christ-ening, a turning of someone into Christ. This means that all baptized people must assume the three-fold office of Jesus: priest (sanctifier), king (leader), and prophet (speaker of the truth).
The first volume of “The Word on Fire Bible” contained the four Gospels. The second volume contains the Acts of the Apostles, the Letters of the New Testament, and the book of Revelation (the remainder of the New Testament).
“The Word on Fire Bible” was designed to appeal not just to Christians, but to nonbelievers, searchers, and those with far more questions than answers.
It doesn’t presume any experience with the Bible; in fact, it was created for people reading the Bible seriously for the first time, who may be unsure of what to make of its many events and characters.
Beyond the elegant design elements, it also contains more than 50 selections of beautiful and thought-provoking artwork as well as hundreds of pages of commentary from myself, the Church Fathers, and some of the greatest saints, mystics, artists, and scholars throughout history.

THIS SUNDAY’S THEMES
Like Jeremiah and Jesus, we experience times in life that are filled with tension and difficulty. Yet following the example of St. Paul, we face these challenging moments with God’s grace as we embrace and live the love of Christ each and every day.
