Everyone attends the School of Experience, but some learn more than others. Whatever comes our way in life, it is up to us to make the most of it. The lessons are presented; how well we learn them is our choice. In this book, readers will find invaluable insights to equip themselves for the “course of study” ahead.

J. Ellsworth Kalas provides a profile of some of the teachers in the School of Experience: Friendship, Regret, Love, Success, Defeat, Enemies, and others. He draws from the lives of saints and sages — as well as from rogues — to discover inspiration and insight for today’s Christian. The wisdom in this book opens our eyes to the often overlooked subtleties in the lessons of life.

Moore – Is there life after stress?


248.86 M



uthor Moore, James W. (James Wendell), 1938-
Title Is there life after stress? / James W. Moore.
Publisher Nashville : Dimensions for Living, c1992.


Descrip. 139 p. ; 22 cm.
Summary Why is it, James Moore asks, that we try to justify anything and everything we want to do? We use words, scapegoats, blaming other people, circumstances, past events, even evil spirits (“the devil made me do it!”) to attempt to excuse bad choices we make with our own free will. What does the Christian faith have to say about all this? The author reminds us of what our faith tells us about excuses: first, that God sees through them; second, that God is more interested in forgiving us than in hearing our excuses; third, that God wants penitence – not excuses – from us. In his warm, embracing style, James Moore encourages us to seek forgiveness. After all, we are justified, not by our eloquent excuses but by the grace of a loving, caring, forgiving God.
