Almost Friends - Paperback

Almost Friends - Paperback

BY PHILIP GULLEY
The 7th Harmony book. It's summer in Harmony, but not everything is as sunny as the weather. The good citizens are stirring up trouble as usual. Pastor Sam Gardner must take a leave of absence from the Meeting to take care of his ailing father. But when spunky pastor Krista Riley comes to fill his position, the quirky Quakers seem to fall in love with her, and it begins to look like Sam's sabbatical may be permanent. Krista's resilience is put to the test when Dale Hinshaw and Fern Hampton begin to question whether a woman can faithfully lead their flock, and it looks like the resulting tiff might just be the undoing of Harmony Friends Meeting. Will Sam come to the rescue.

If God Is Love

If God Is Love

Rediscovering Grace In An Ungracious World

BY JAMES MULHOLLAND AND PHILIP GULLEY
In If Grace Is True, pastors Philip Gulley and James Mulholland revealed their belief that God will save every person. They now explore the implications of this belief and its power to change every area of our lives. They attempt to answer one question: If we took God's love seriously, what would our world look like? Gulley and Mulholland argue that what we believe is crucial and dramatically affects the way we live and interact in the world. Beliefs have power. The belief in a literal hell, where people suffer eternally, has often been used by the Church to justify hate and violence, which contradict what Jesus taught about love and grace. The authors present a new vision.

If Grace Is True

If Grace Is True

Why God Will Save Every Person

BY PHILIP GULLEY, JAMES MULHOLLAND
I don't think many liberal Quakers will find anything at all unusual in the idea that God will not damn people to eternal perdition for not believing in Him/Her in the correct manner. But this is a hugely controversial book to some Friends in the more evangelical traditions. Using stories from their own lives the authors meditate on Christian Universalism and how a true and loving relationship with God is indeed salvation. Includes an appendix of Universalist Bible quotes and thought through the ages. This new edition has an afterward and discussion questions.

Just Shy Of Harmony

Just Shy Of Harmony

BY PHILIP GULLEY
"Gulley, easily evangelical fiction's funniest man, turns in something just shy of a real novel in Just Shy of Harmony--as opposed to the loose collections of sermons and stories he's published in the past. This time out, Gulley's alter ego, Quaker minister Sam Gardner, decides that he no longer believes in God. His reason? A pretty good one: nothing ever gets done, and he fritters away his 60-hour weeks on discussions about church gymnasiums [etc.].... Then a woman in the congregation is stricken with leukemia, and all the backbiters and gossipers rally to her cause. Sam's gloom lifts with his renewed faith in humankind." -Publisher's Weekly, starred review

Living The Quaker Way

Living The Quaker Way

Timeless Wisdom For A Better Life Today

BY PHILIP GULLEY
This is by Phil Gulley the Quaker Pastor from Indiana well known to Friends for his sometimes controversial but refreshing books on Christianity, as well as his Harmony novels sequence. His light and humorous touch is visible again here as he explains Quakers their beliefs and testimonies by using examples from his own life and local community. This is an easy to read book that deals with difficult and challenging topics. I think that any Quaker will benefit from this book and find in it inspiration for that most difficult of tasks: talking about your own beliefs and what it means to be a Quaker. five stars two thumbs up etc etc.

Porch Talk

Porch Talk

Stories Of Decency, Common Sense, And Other Endangered Species

BY PHILIP GULLEY
In this collection of stories told from his own life experiences, Gulley's musings on such topics as leisure, marriage, faith, enjoyment, and more hold an earthy wisdom that reminds us of what we hold dear, and what's truly important in life. These stories reflect the kind of conversations Gulley overheard in his youth, in a time when neighbors gathered on front porches across America, a glass of lemonade in hand, the sounds of crickets buzzing in the air, and lazy stories spilled from lips from generation to generation.
