Encounters With Christ

Encounters With Christ is your personal invitation to experience Christ in a fresh new way. It's more than just a book to be read.  It is an opportunity to experience the transforming power of Jesus in your own life.  Drawing from the canvases of Scripture, history, and tradition, Richard Exley carefully paints these real-life, eyewitness accounts in colors so vivid you'll feel you're there. Through each moving vignette, you will be forever transformed  by these candid and personal accounts of individuals who met Jesus face-to-face If you are ill, may you encounter the Healer.  If you are being held back by fear or even in bondage to addiction, may you encounter the One who came to liberate every one of us. If you have made some unwise decision or have lost your way, may you encounter the One who came to seek and save the lost.  If you are feeling overwhelmed, perhaps discouraged, may you encounter the One whose presence will renew your faith and restore your outlook on life.  If you are a worshipper, may you encounter the object of your devotion.  Wherever you are in life, may you be refreshed, restored, and renewed as you encounter Christ as you've never experienced Him before. Each chapter includes a Life Lesson that is perfect for personal reflection and small group discussion.

"I've been using Encounters With Christ once a week in our morning staff devotions and have wept my way through the 4th chapterusually we're all grabbing at tissues by the time we are done. Thanks for helping us put ourselves in the shoes of those who encountered Christ in the Gospels. I encountered Him through the miraculous healing of my cousin, so I know the Jesus you write aboutmighty in power, awesome in compassion and mercy."Tom Blackwood, Associate Pastor
Calvary Church, Greensboro, NC

"I really enjoyed your new book Encounters With Christ. After the first 2 chapters, I decided that part of my reading would include a kleenex with which to wipe the tears from my eyes so I could continue to read without blurred vision. Thank you for the book. It is AWSOME!"

Perils of Power Immorality In The Ministry

In Perils of Power, Richard Exley takes an in-depth look at immorality in the ministry. It's a complex issue involving the minister's relationship with money, sex and power. There are many factors at work including the minister's self-image and sexual identity, his life-style, his marital relationship, his way he views power and even how he conducts his ministry. Immorality is seldom just a "sexual sin" and while it is definitely a spiritual problem, it is more just a "spiritual problem."

Perils of Power looks beneath the obvious sin of highly visible ministers in an attempt to understand the interpersonal dynamics of moral failure among those who recognize it as a deadly sin. Once Dr. Exley has identified the spiritual and emotional dynamics that are at work; he offers scriptural insights and practical strategies for overcoming the temptations we all face.
