Alien Underground Bases: Extraterrestrial Bases on Earth (Blue Planet Project Book 8)

The Complete Guide to Extraterrestrial Bases on Earth Hundreds of strange and mysterious locations that have revealed amazing, bizarre technology! While there are numerous Deep Underground Military Bases (DUMBS), and even several joint military/alien bases such as Dulce this new book: Alien Underground Bases, covers the secret alien locations which government and military leaders around the world pretend don't exist. While some of these locations may have been home to aliens thousands of years ago and are most likely abandon today (has anyone gone down there to double-check?), many others could very well still be active! What could be going on there? How about strange and mysterious scientific and military preparations? Genetic experiments involving humans, animals and plant life? While many may scoff at the idea of secret alien bases, consider that the U.S. Government takes the release of this information very seriously. Would they be so paranoid about this if there wasn't anything to it? Just remember the sad case of whistleblower Phil Schneider, a top expert on the construction of underground military bases. The government claimed his death in 1996 was a suicide, but others claim it was more like a military execution and revealed that there appeared to be signs of a brutal beating. Schneider claimed to have been the subject of several assignation attempts. One occurred in September of 1995, sixteen days before giving a lecture at the Preparedness Expo. He was shot in the shoulder by an FBI agent that Schneider claimed was trying to kill him. He killed the FBI agent in self-defense. I'm not sure if a lot of folks realize it or not, but when Schneider was the recipient of a suicide, he was working on a book that was going to detail the precise latitude/longitude coordinates of all DUMBS (Deep Underground Military Bases) that he was aware of. He was killed in January 1996 and the book was never released.

A Place to Call Home: Inspirational Historical Frontier Pioneer Christian Romance Novella

Life can be a dangerous adventure. That was a lesson I learned the hard way...

At seventeen, my family embarked on a long journey that took us away from the safety of our beloved home in Illinois and led us to what we hoped would be a prosperous new life in Oregon. My faith, health, and heart were put the test more times than I could count.

Still, with God as our guide and good friends as support, I found out that sometimes the biggest trials come with the greatest rewards. And that love is always the best place to call home.

***Bonus Stories Included!!!***

The Essence of Buddhism

This book describes the basic principles of Buddhism. Much has been written about Buddhism and how to practice it. Readers will have no difficulty finding hundreds of books on the topic. This book simply focuses on the essence of Buddhism, as expressed in the Four Noble Truths and the Eight-fold Path.

Buddhism is not a religion as such; it does not propose an external God. It does not seek to replace a person's existing religious beliefs, only to supplement them. The Buddha, in all likelihood, would rather his followers describe themselves simply as Followers of The Way.

200 Golden Hadiths

200 Golden Hadith is a collection of 200 short and easy to memorize Sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him). Compiled in generalized format, the Hadiths are aimed at helping common readers understand Islam and attain spiritual purification.

What makes this book unique?

- Short and easy to memorize Hadiths

- Original text with easy to understand English translation.

- Diverse content- covering a range of subjects.

- Beautiful guide for positive thinking, personality development, spiritual/physical health, social well-being, and sound relationships.

- References from authentic sources.

- Stunning graphics and fabulous background

- Perfect gift for kids and youngsters

Islamic jurisprudence heavily relies on Hadiths for seeking interpretation of a given issue. Therefore, learning/spreading Hadiths has been marked as an obligation. The Prophet PBUH himself said, "Whoever comes to know one hadith of mine should spread it." However, we also need to be careful while spreading Hadiths so as not to alter any component of it, otherwise hellfire is the sure destination. By providing authentic content with simple English translation, Darussalam Publishers has actually helped general masses (with less scholarly knowledge) in learning the message of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

Remnant: Noah fiction series (Grace Finder Book 1)

One family. A chosen remnant. With nothing but grace to carry them through.

Enter the world of Noah, the Grace Finder. Here you'll encounter prophets, warriors, street urchins, and royalty; political intrigue and personal betrayal; dragons, giants, and a ragtag band of misfits; sword fights and drawn bows; visions and incantations; love, sacrifice, and redemption.

All in the face of impending annihilation.

------------------------------------

Many have tried to adapt the Flood legends, exploring the questions: Why would God send a flood to destroy so many? How could a loving Father bring down such complete annihilation? What grieved the Creator so deeply that He would flood away an entire world, leaving only a remnant of eight?

This trilogy cuts to the heart of those questions and more. The Flood story is one of our world's most ancient tales; it's also the most misunderstood. Scholarly commentaries gloss over the Flood. Movie versions seldom do the tale justice. Children's Bibles tame it into one of a robed, grandfatherly Noah and plush animal figurines.

So let the first book in this series usher you toward a fresh revelation of the Flood event, envision God's remnant as never before, and find answers that may surprise you. And, as you follow the series to its end, discover a grace even deeper than the waters that covered an entire world.

Daily Devotions: Walking Daily in the New Testament and Proverbs

Make your daily devotional reading simple and organized.

The New Testament gives you an up-close-and-personal glimpse at the life of Jesus.

The Gospels present a testimony of the miracle of His birth, the impact of His life, and the power of His death & resurrection.

The succeeding New Testament books offer a deeper reflection of Jesus Christ and the ministry we, as His followers, are called to.

The book of Proverbs is known as the "Book of Wisdom" because it provides instructions on how to live happily, successfully, and victoriously. It is jam-packed with tips, advice, and insight that if applied can change your relationships, attitudes, and life.

The Plan is Simple.

There are 89 chapters in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. By reading one chapter of the Gospels each day, and then two chapters of the rest of the New Testament (Acts - Revelation) for a total of three chapters per day, you will go through the New Testament in just 89 Days.

This plan is called "The cell rule of Optina." The monks of the Optina Monastery enter into a daily Scripture discipline: one chapter from the Gospels and two chapters from the rest of the New Testament, reading daily in order beginning with the book of Acts and ending with the last chapter of Revelation.

By following this plan, Matthew 1 and Acts 1-2 are on the first day, and then the last gospel, John 21, is read on the very same day as Revelation 21-22.

I have added a slight twist by including a section from the book of Proverbs with each day's reading.

Daily Devotions: Walking Daily in the New Testament and Proverbs - is simple, organized, and easy to use. Start today, and you will begin to develop a good habit that will help you in your spiritual walk with Christ.

Blood Red Words: The Most Significant Words in Human History

Contained in this book are the most significant words ever spoken by a human being. They are the words of Jesus Christ of Nazareth who came in the flesh. The meat of this book contains Christ's words that are identified in the Bible by red letters. However, the human narration of the Biblical authors: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John have been extracted. Only the red lettered words spoken by Jesus Christ remain.

Inside the red lettered words of Jesus, you will find parables, instructions, encouragement, and comfort. You will find prophecies Jesus spoke concerning the end of days. You will also find the one and only path that leads to the Heavenly Father and into the kingdom of heaven.

As you read the red words of Jesus you will find numerous themes. However, the most significant theme Jesus preached was His sacrificial death upon the cross followed by His supernatural resurrection by the Holy Spirit. It is this theme of Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection that is the basis of the Christian faith.

By exploring what the Bible teaches on Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection we will validate the truthfulness of Christ's claim to be the Son of God. We can thus validate the truth of His spoken words. We will also look at numerous Biblical prophecies that were fulfilled in Jesus Christ. The fulfilled prophecies point to Jesus as being the Messiah.

The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:3-4:

3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.

One reason this book is entitled, Blood Red Words is because the sustenance of this book are the red lettered words spoken by Jesus recorded in the Bible. Another reason for this title is because I want the readers to understand, see, and experience the power of Jesus' shed blood in their own lives. Jesus' purpose was to pour out His blood upon the cross for the remission of human sin. Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice.

Before Jesus died on the cross, animals such as oxen, goats, sheep, and birds were killed as a sacrifice in an effort to remove people's sins. God actually required animal sacrifices to provide a temporary covering of human sins (Leviticus 4:35, 5:10). The animal sacrifices were a foreshadow of the one perfect and complete sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.

Humans no longer need to offer animal sacrifices today. Animal sacrifices have ended because Jesus Christ was the perfect sacrifice. John the Baptist recognized Jesus as the sacrificial Lamb. When John saw Jesus coming to him to be baptized, John said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!" (John 1:29).

Jesus Christ took our sin upon Himself and died in our place. Jesus was faultless but willingly gave Himself to die for the sins of mankind (1 Timothy 2:6). Jesus laid down His own life. He had power to lay it down, and He had power to take it again (John 10:17-18). Jesus laid down His life to take our sins upon Him. In Second Corinthians 5:21 the apostle Paul wrote of Jesus saying, "For He [God] made Him [Jesus] who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

As you read Jesus' words in red found in this book, think of what Jesus' sacrifice means to you. Meditate on His blood red words and see what He endured for you. As you go through this book, answer the following questions. What has Jesus' blood personally done for me? What would I be doing without the sacrifice of Jesus upon the cross? Where would I be without the blood red words of Jesus?

English Translation of the Qur'an

Between these two covers you will find the answer to those questions which touch the very depths of your soul.

Why am I here? Where am I heading? How does one achieve happiness? Can one really find inner-peace? How can the "God" issue be resolved? Is blind faith and the curbing of logic the only road to spiritual nourishment?

The answers given are plain and simple. All that is required to benefit is truthfulness with oneself, and unbiased approach, and a sincere quest for guidance. With that, immediately you will see why so many are naturally compelled to accept this message. We invite you to contemplate the matter for yourself...

The Prophet Muhammad

People today, and the young in particular, take many individuals as role models, imitate the way they behave, speak and dress, and try to be like them. Yet, since the great majority of these people are not on the right road themselves, they lack proper morality and attitudes. A Muslim needs to try to emulate the behavior and the morality of the Prophet Muhammad (saas), who was sent to mankind as the last prophet. He was a living example of the sublime morality of Allah's last revelation. He was a friend of Allah and inspired humanity by his nearness to Him. Allah confirms that in a verse: You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah, for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much. (Surat al-Ahzab: 21) Although we have never seen the Prophet (saas), we can still do our very best to come to know his exemplary behaviour, his sayings and the pleasing morality he displayed, by means of the verses of the Qur'an and the hadiths. We can try to be like him, in order to be close to him in the hereafter.The aim in writing this book is to introduce various characteristics of the Prophet Muhammad (saas), by revealing his devotion, superior morality and noble character.

How to Live in the Present Moment: The Beginner's Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

If you are reading this now, you may have already come to the realization that striving for material gains and everything else the world calls "important" is not actually fulfilling. You probably have a yearning for something more significant. You might not know exactly what it is that you want, but I do know, because everyone on this planet is actually seeking the same thing...

Each and every one of us is seeking for inner peace and a sense of completion. We attempt to reach this by different means, but the goal is always the same. Some people strive for this sense of completion by chasing money or success. Some people use food, some people use drugs, and some people use so-called 'spirituality' in an attempt to reach this state where they can finally say "all is well now."

The problem with these means-to-an-end approaches is that they fail to take into account one simple truth, that time as we know it does not really exist. If you say, "I'm going to do this in order to reach peace of mind" then you are placing your peace of mind somewhere in the future and the future is always out of our grasp.

Peace is not achieved in the same way a material goal is achieved, by visualizing it and then taking steps to get there. Peace is not something you achieve but rather something you realize. Within you, there already exists a deep sense of peace. You don't have to strive for it, you only have to recognize it.

Let me show you step by step how to do just that.

The Daily Walk Bible NLT: 31 Days with Jesus

Most people agree that Jesus was an amazing teacher and someone we could all learn from. At the same time, most of us have spent little time actually reading his story. The Daily Walk Bible NLT: 31 Days with Jesus is an open invitation to do just that. In just one month you will read through all four gospels, seeing Jesus and gaining insight into his purpose and message for us.

This special eBook, taken from the pages of The Daily Walk Bible, includes a simple reading plan to help you through. Each day includes an Overview that provides a bird's-eye view of that day's reading, an inspirational and practical My Daily Walk devotion, and an Insight that offers an interesting fact about the passage. Every seventh day you will be invited to pause and reflect--looking back over what you have read, looking forward to what is coming, and most importantly looking up to God.

It's that simple, but be warned, Jesus has been changing lives for two thousand years--31 days and yours won't be the same either.

The Bible documents seven covenants or contracts. Terms and conditions apply. Anyone not clear on which contract applies to them, why, and how, will inevitably be confused regarding what Christianity is all about.

This book is simple, straight-forward and clear. It will help you read your Bible with understanding. You will know what Jesus did and why, and how it applies to you. You will also be able to approach any passage of Scripture armed with that knowledge, and be able to apply it appropriately to your life and circumstances.

What beta-readers are saying about the book:

"This book is potent in the best sense of the word. Easy to read with analogies that cleared the mud in my thinking and left me with such clarity and understanding of my Bible, how to read and apply it. This is not another layer of "How To" to slap on the top of life, but a deep foundational re-alignment in Jesus that will bring everything else into peace and order, regardless of what circumstances we face. Read it!"

"I have just finished proof-reading this book and have been blown away. In a few short pages Gavin has provided concise teaching on understanding the Bible. There is something for everyone; from the new Christian who could be making heavy weather of getting to grips with the Scriptures, to "mature" Christians of many years' standing. His thought processes are clear, the style of writing is conversational without being overly chatty and we are left in no doubt that the entire Bible is about Jesus and the finished work of the cross. I thought that I had a reasonable grasp of the seven covenants and God's redemptive plan for mankind but this book brings fresh understanding and revelation. Highly recommended."

Is the Holy Spirit Real?: Reconnecting With the Work of the Holy Spirit in the Bible and In Our Lives

Jesus has four Gospels about His life, and God the Father's work is on nearly every page, so why is it that we forget so much about the third Member of the Trinity: the Holy Spirit? Is it the fact that He seems to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time? Is it because He is so personal in nature that a generalized description is virtually impossible? Regardless, it's about time that we finally focus on who He is, what He's done, and how He contributed to our common salvation.

Brenda refuses to accept her doctor's diagnosis and struggles through physical therapy to regain the use of her legs. But progress is slow and Brenda fears she may never walk the same again. Almost a year later, to everyone's surprise, Brenda has learned to walk by herself. Brenda has high hopes of returning to the ice. But Pamela, her skating coach, is skeptical and tells Brenda that she will coach Brenda only on one condition. That she skate with a partner who can work with her new disabilities.

To his surprise, Coach Pamela asks him to be Brenda's new skating partner. Scott rejoices at the opportunity to win back Brenda's trust and her love.

Zen: Come to Peace

A Buddhist Meditation Guide to Find Your Inner Peace, Happiness, and Zen through Mindfulness

Wisdom emanates from many sources and in all parts of the word, people have their own way of gaining, propagating and ensuring that there is sustainability for their kind of wisdom among generations. Each culture believes that their wisdom concepts far outweigh those of other cultures, and this would explain why people go to the extent of preserving their concepts and philosophies in books and more so in the minds of the representatives of each subsequent generation.

Zen is one among the many philosophies of wisdom that have existed from a long time ago. Its principles and understanding emanates from one of the many schools of Buddhism, whose main focus is on meditation. It emphasizes the importance of engaging in the practice on a daily basis, especially with a focus on the benefits of other people.

The concepts of Zen are deeply rooted in various schools of thought like Mahayana, Huayan, Yogacara and the Thathagatagarbha Sutra. Although over time people have slowly lost the original meaning of Zen and have given it meaning in totally unrelated concepts, Zen has retained its original sense of remarkable wisdom, which is rooted in the Chinese tradition.

Zen is a traditional practice that focuses on the here and now. It lays emphasis on becoming fully aware of the circumstances that surround you at this particular moment, where your life is at right now. The principle behind this is that both the present and the future are both just illusions, since we have no promise of the future, and the past is just a distorted memory of things that happened, both of which are intangible.

Zen is hence encompassed in the common expression of 'coming in touch with your senses.' It actually discourages people from living in the past of fantasizing about the future because while they do so, they lose out on life, on the moment and on the activity at hand.

If you give all your attention to Zen, what you experience is a peak of your life, where each moment is simply a moment of utmost peace and precision. It is in this moment that you find significance and a sense of mystery that is so infinitely precious. Keep reading this book to uncover the concepts of Zen and sure enough, by the time you are done reading the only answer that you will have to Zen is 'now!'

Beyond Good and Evil (Golden Deer Classics) [The Classics Collection #04]



Download

in EPUB format, also available for Kindle or in PDF

Beyond Good and Evil (German: Jenseits von Gut und Bose), subtitled "Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future" (Vorspiel einer Philosophie der Zukunft), is a book by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, first published in 1886.

It takes up and expands on the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but approached from a more critical, polemical direction.

In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche attacks past philosophers for their alleged lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of Christian premises in their consideration of morality. The work moves into the realm "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favour of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.

A Midwife in Amish Country SAMPLE

Enjoy a FREE SAMPLE of the new book A Midwife in Amish Country by Kim Woodard Osterholzer

Kim Osterholzer, a midwife who's caught over 500 babies since 1993, ushers readers behind the doors of Amish homes as she recounts her lively, entertaining, and life-changing adventures learning the heart and art and craft of midwifery. In A Midwife in Amish Country, Kim chronicles the escapades of her nine-year apprenticeship grappling with the nuance and idiosyncrasies of homebirth as she tagged along after the woman who helped her birth her own babies at home. With drama and insight, she recounts the beauty and painstaking effort of those early years spent catching babies next to crackling woodstoves, by oil lamp and lantern light, and in farmhouses powered by windmills for running water and sporting outhouses for the unmentionables. She found herself catching babies born into leaky wading pools and through howling snow storms: huge babies, tiny babies, breech babies, and twin babies. Some births kept her from home for days on end, others she missed by heart-pounding seconds, yet every birth enthralled her, whether halting hemorrhages, sharing breath with tiny lungs, or bouncing through wild rides in ambulances. Too many times to count, Kim stumbled home feeling overwhelmed and inadequate, yet as she strained against her misgivings, self-doubts, and seemingly insurmountable challenges, those intimate, sacred moments transformed her as time after time she rocked back upon her heels to soak in the spellbinding magic of hearty cries filling the air-the cries of brand-new lives with newly expanding lungs, of hardy men with overflowing hearts, of life-bearing women with the reward of their labors filling their arms-a harmony of cries that mingled with Kim's own and that, together, rose heavenward from rumpled beds speckled and splattered with the sweat, tears, and blood of those births. The very beds of those conceptions became sacred spaces awash with love and joy and gratitude. She persevered, and her experiences became profoundly empowering as she unearthed the foundation and cornerstone of true midwifery-how to use her heart as well as her hands to serve, and to serve in the simplest of womanly ways---stroking, smoothing, wiping, tidying, nourishing, comforting, hearing, encouraging, validating, and witnessing. Slowly, steadily, Kim learned to play her part as midwife to the Amish-her part in a symphony of inimitable women-a single, piping strain among the melodies of those skilled, focused, strong, and harmonious-women unflagging in their passion to welcome new lives earth-side effectively and gently. And at last, tried and tested, Kim took her rightful place among them.

Daniel's 70 Weeks: The Keystone of Bible Prophecy (Prophecies & Patterns Book 2)

Did the Bible really predict the coming of the Messiah before it happened? To answer that question William Struse takes you on a Biblical adventure in search of the promised Messiah. Of all the prophetic texts in the Bible, and by some counts there are over 2000, there is only one prophecy which gives a specific datable timeline for the coming of the Messiah. That prophecy found in the 9th chapter of the book of Daniel is commonly called Daniel's 70 Weeks.

Did you know?

1.The prophecy of 70 Weeks gives the date for the birth the Messiah.

2.The prophecy also tells of the Messiah's death and his resurrection.

3.The prophecy warns of the destruction of Jerusalem and its desolation.

4.The prophecy confirms the "covenant and mercy" promised to Abraham and his descendants, the Jewish people.

In a world where some question the Jewish people's ancestral rights to the land of Israel, the prophecy of 70 Weeks proves mathematically that indeed YHWH's oath which he swore with Abraham and his "seed" is in fact true, literal, and eternal.

Did you know?

1.That the "covenant and mercy" mentioned in Daniel 9:4 refers to the oath YHWH swore with Abraham and his "seed" in Genesis 22.

2.That the word swore in Genesis 22 comes from the Hebrew shaba and is the very root for the Hebrew word shabuwa (weeks) as in Daniel's 70 Weeks (Shabuwa).

3.That this covenant made with Abraham is the first recorded covenant YHWH swore (shaba) with any man in the Bible.

4.That this oath of sevens is an underlying covenantal theme of the entire Biblical record.

As you explore the Biblical record in this book, you'll see why the prophecy of 70 Weeks is the keystone between the Old and New Testaments (Covenants). Quite literally, this prophecy bridges the Old Testament Torah and Prophets, which speak of a coming Messiah, with the New Testament Apostles who record the fulfillment of those very prophecies in the person of a first century Jewish man named Yeshua.

So if you've ever wondered whether the Bible's prophecies which speak of a coming Messiah are true, by the time you have finished Daniel's 70 Weeks: The Keystone of Bible Prophecy you'll have an answer to that question and you will know why the Bible is truly different than any other religious text recorded by man.

Now, his fans and readers are in for a treat with his highly-anticipated autobiography: Ooze. Dive into Kishan's spiritual world full of good deeds and humble qualities that defined both his personal and professional life.

Kishan's main philosophy in life was always: "I do not look towards girls". This inadvertently pushed his career to places he never could have imagined. Kishan set himself up in life with a plethora of inspirational content by his side. His family used to worship Lord Krishna; the King of Romance. Kishan quickly realized that Lord Krishna's character was the polar opposite of his, causing him to wonder: "Why should I worship him as a God, just because my parents do?"

Kishan soon reached a stage in his life where he discovered the hard-hitting truth: he was not on the right path towards his destiny. It was then that he allowed Lord Krishna to enter his life with open arms, guiding him on his journey to inner-peace and uncontainable prosperity.

Are you ready to unlock the great teachings of both Lord Krishna and Kishan Barai, increasing your faith in God while boosting your belief in yourself? At just few bucks a copy, there's absolutely nothing to lose - only everything to gain by letting Lord Krishna reimagine your holy perspective today!

Christian Biblical Warnings and Admonishments

This book is somewhat of a collage of chapters, each one being a stand-alone teaching. Lots of devotional books have varieties of short inspirational teachings from the Holy Bible and this book covers a variety of teachings as well. This book offers warnings and admonishments, with warnings being to avoid some of the snares of the devil, whose deceptions can be powerfully deceiving. The admonishments are actions we can take to recognize what our enemy (Satan) attempts to do, to dim the light of Jesus Christ for us and others we can warn. These are the Chapters: - - -

The Zen Wheel of Life Mantra: A Song of Luminous Wisdom and Love

Zen Priest and Poet Tai Sheridan's Wheel of Life Mantra is a poetic expression of the Bhavacakra, an ancient mandala that presents the most significant wisdom teachings of Buddhism. It is used to contemplate the causes and conditions of suffering, and as a guide to non-dual wisdom, loving kindness, compassion, and equanimity. The Wheel is constructed of four concentric circles around a hub, each circle representing different areas of human experience and awareness. Beginning with the innermost circle and moving outward they represent dimensions of anguish, consequences, psychological experience, and the workings of consciousness. The wheel itself is an expression of the essential Buddhist teachings of no-self (nothing exists as a separate entity), impermanence (everything changes), and co-dependent origination (all phenomena arise simultaneously in reality in the present moment). The Wheel, like all Buddhist teachings, is an encouragement for finding the way to peace, love, and light.

The United States and Britain in Bible Prophecy

The publisher offers this ebook for free at ucg.org/booklet/united-states-and-britain-bible-prophecy

What's ahead for the United States and Britain?

Is the world's most powerful nation--the United States of America--overlooked in Bible prophecy? Why are relatively small powers like Egypt, Syria and Lebanon mentioned, but no nation recognizable as the United States can be found? What about other major English-speaking nations such as the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia?

In fact, many prophecies do mention these nations. But, without a proper understanding of history and the Scriptures, few can identify these countries and understand what lies ahead for them.

The Bible study aid booklet, The United States and Britain in Bible Prophecy, takes you on a remarkable journey through history and Bible prophecy to reveal an incredible story with sobering implications for the major English-speaking nations. You can't afford to be without this priceless information.

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook:

"Why has history been so benevolent and economically generous to Britain and the United States? Why have they been blessed so favorably over the nations that preceded them in history? The answer lies in the understanding and fulfillment of biblical prophecy."

"God's promise to Abraham was not limited to a small and ancient people in the Middle East. It extends far into the future, and it is not limited by national boundaries."

"Where can we find the descendants of Joseph, the lost tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh? This list of blessings eliminates most of the nations of the world as contenders. To find them we must ask: Which nations possess these blessings in our world?"

"When we understand that the modern descendants of Joseph are the people of the United States and Britain, we see that over the past three centuries God has been true to His promises."

"Though the United States and Britain do not appear in the Bible's prophecies of the end time under their present names, God hasn't ignored these nations. He identifies them in prophecy according to their ancestry. Most people simply haven't known where to look for them."

The Day of Judgment

"The name of the book, Revelation, is a translation of the title in the original New Testament Greek, Apocalypsis--the origin of the other name by which the book is now known, the Apocalypse. The Greek term denotes an unveiling or uncovering--thus, a revelation."

"Here is the key to understanding the book. Jesus alone can unlock the meaning of its symbols, visions and descriptions...Christ reveals its meaning. He unlocks its seals. But how does He do it?"

"Most of Revelation--about two thirds of its content--is devoted to the seventh seal. The contents of the first six seals are found in chapter 6 alone."

"How will the two witnesses and their message be received?"

"The book of Revelation reveals, from more than one perspective, the emergence of this vast end-time empire governed from a great city God labels "Babylon the great", the reference here being to Rome."

"Jesus Christ will return to establish that Kingdom on earth (the Kingdom of God) at His second coming, at last bringing the peace mankind has always longed for but never achieved."

Vachanamrut

The Vachanamrut of Bhagwan Swaminarayan is the most sacred and foundational scripture of the Swaminarayan Sampraday. It contains the profound wisdom of the Vedas, Upanishads, Brahmasutras, Bhagvad Gita, Bhagvat Purana, Dharma shastras like Yagnavalkya Smruti, Vidurniti, and epics like the Ramayan and Mahabharat (Vachanamrut Gadhadha II-28). Bhagwan Swaminarayan says in Gadhadha II-28, "What is this discourse which I have delivered before you like? Well, I have delivered it having heard and having extracted the essence from the Vedas, the shastras, the Purans and all other words on this earth pertaining to liberation."

The Vachanamrut is the essence of ancient Indian wisdom as told by Bhagwan Swaminarayan and compiled by his five contemporary scholarly-sadhus who were known for their asceticism and scholarship in Sanskrit, besides their devotion to him. In fact every statement of the Master is packed with and based on His in-depth religious knowledge, spiritual insights and practical experience. It contains practical and philosophical answers to the sincere enquiries of all types of aspirants regarding life in this world and the life hereafter.

The Vachanamrut is not only a sacred shastra in the Swaminarayan faith, but a shastra of every day study. All the literate followers read it daily and the illiterate listen to at least a page everyday. It is read and elaborated upon daily in the Swaminarayan mandirs the world over. It is a landmark shastra, philosophically and in all other aspects. It is the first modern Gujarati prose work which the noted Gujarati critic and poet, Shri Uma Shankar Joshi, acclaimed as the very pinnacle of Gujarati prose. The Vachanamrut, a compilation of 273 spiritual discourses, is divided into 10 sections. The discourses were delivered by Bhagwan Swaminarayan in the last decade of his life, between 1819 and 1829 CE in Gujarati. They were mostly delivered in ashram-like ambience in secluded places like Gadhada, Sarangpur, Kariyani, Loya, Panchala, Vadtal, Aslali, and Jetalpur.

The book records the dialogues and conversation between the master and his disciples, answering philosophical and religious questions, explaining doctrines, and formulating terminology concerning both theoretical and practical points of view in daily life and spiritual sadhna.

Vachanamrut is a compound word of two Gujarati words, vachan and amrut. Vachan means words or speech and amrut means nectar. Hence the Vachanamrut comprises the nectarine or divine words of Bhagwan Swaminarayan. The Vachanamrut is the amrut (divine nectar) of Bhagwan Swaminarayan in the form of His divine words. This amrut leads the jivas to moksha.

The discourses were transcribed not by a 1 editor but by five contemporary scholarly-sadhus while they were being delivered. These editors were:

Muktanand Swami, the senior most sadhu of Ramanand Swami, 23 years senior to Bhagwan Swaminarayan. He was the teacher of Bhagwan Swaminarayan when he first arrived in Gujarat. Muktanand Swami is the author of Brahmasutra Bhashya Ratnam, a commentary on the Vedanta Sutra of Badrayana Vyas.

Gopalanand Swami, who had mastered ashtang yoga, wrote a commentary on the Dashopanishad and Bhagvad Gita.

Nityanand Swami, a profound Sanskrit scholar, authored the Hari Digvijay Kavya in Sanskrit.

Shukanand Swami, was a well-known Sanskrit scholar from Dabhan and the personal secretary of the Master.

Brahmanand Swami a Jocular Born Poet, by the instructions of Lord Swaminarayan Brahmanand Swami erected three magnificent temples in Muli, Vadtal, Junagadh also as an eminent poet he composed about 9000 devotional songs, which are popular as Brahmanand Kavya.

In one of the Vachanamruts, one of the editors, namely, Nityanand Swami, presents 114 edited discourses to Bhagwan Swaminarayan for his approval. He was pleased with the efforts of the editors and authenticated their compilation.

The Prophet Moses

The history of mankind could be considered as a history of prophets. God has communicated His Divine Revelation to people by means of His messengers throughout history. These messengers told people about God and communicated to them the words of our Lord. The struggle a number of prophets faced in spreading the message is depicted in detail in the Qur'an. The stories and experiences of various prophets, besides the Prophet Muhammad (saas), such as the Prophet 'Isa, Sulayman, Yusuf, Nuh, Ibrahim, and many others (peace be upon them all), are conveyed as examples.The prophet that is most frequently employed as an example in the Qur'an is the Prophet Musa (Moses) (as). The Qur'an offers detailed accounts of his difficulties with Pharaoh, beginning in his childhood, the evil conduct of his people and his struggle in communicating the message to them. His unyielding courage under the most stringent circumstances is presented with the intention of being an example to people. In this book we will examine the life of Musa (as) as it is depicted in the Qur'an. We will explore the events he has lived through as it is described. Essentially, the events in the Prophet Musa's life should not be regarded merely as events of the ancient past, but rather as events and examples to shed light to our own lives today.

Arunachala Pancharatna: Five Stanzas to Arunachala

A translation of Ramana Maharshi's Arunachala Pancharatna (Five Stanzas to Arunachala) from Sanskrit into English by Miles Wright with comments and a preceding article by him on the practice of atma-vichara (self-enquiry) as taught by Ramana Maharshi.

HCSB: Navigating the Horizons in Bible Translations

In Genesis 3:1 the serpent asked the woman, "Did God really say, 'You can't eat from any tree in the garden'?" What has God really said? Before we can obey Him, we must know what He has said. The Psalmist prayed twice in his affliction, "Give me life through Your word" (Ps 119:25, 107). When Jesus was afflicted by the Devil in the wilderness (Mt 4:1-11), He defended Himself with the sword of the Spirit (Eph 6:17) - God's Word. But Christians must know what God has said if we are to find strength and healing from affliction and defense against the Devil. Bible translation is not a casual enterprise because it involves bringing the life-saving Word of God to people in their own language. And selecting a Bible translation is not on the order of picking out a sweater. It's more like picking a doctor - someone you can trust. This book is about how Bible translation is done. And it commends a particular translation - the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) - as a trustworthy guide to what God has really said.

"Even though we might possess the world's brightest minds, if God does not act to open our minds, the Bible will remain closed to us."

"One vital key we must come to understand is that the Bible interprets itself. We must be careful not to force our own interpretations onto it."

"For us to understand the Bible, we must first learn about and respect God's law."

Chapter 1, Verse 1

The Book of Revelation is not about the destruction of the world. It is about the revealing of Jesus Christ in you. "Chapter 1, Verse 1" explores the manifestation of Christ within us by providing a verse by verse explanation of the symbolism found in the Book of Revelation. It explains how and why this last book of the Bible reveals the mystery of God, Christ in you. Here is the "return" of Jesus Christ, the one who said, "...I am with you always." Christ is revealed in us, to us and through us.

Excerpt from 'Chapter 1, Verse 1': The scroll or 'little book' found in the right hand of the Lamb of God had writing on both the front and back of it. Interestingly, the paper of ancient times used papyrus reeds cut into strips and placed horizontally to dry. Once dry, more papyrus strips were laid at right angles and glued in place. Finally, after polishing, the paper was ready to use. Writing was done with the grain. When writing on both sides of the paper, as with the scroll, the writing on one side would be written at a ninety degree angle when compared to the opposite side, due to the grain of the paper. Whoever reads the scroll would have to, at times, turn it ninety degrees to understand it.

The writing on both the front and the back of the scroll is similar to the way information about the revealing of Christ is given to us in the Book of Revelation. We have to look at Revelation from a different angle, a different perspective, if we are to understand its meaning. The Book of Revelation is like a stereo-gram picture, a picture hidden within a picture. On the surface, it paints an image of war, famine, death, and destruction. But when we change our focus, we will see the hidden picture, one of Christ manifested within his people.

Rich Memories with a Christmas Spirit

Bob's Christmas seasons from the 1930's through the decades.

To soften unemployment and economic depression these stories recall love, happiness and community spirit during the Great Depression when hardship inspired an attitude of help thy neighbor and political dissention was less polarized.

The Chicago World's Fair of 1933, icy and snowbound Christmases. a wild Christmas cat dominating the henhouse, and Bob's Christmas in midsummer July 4th dramatic presentation, which was upstaged by sick Republican friends, highlight rich memories of a wild life recording mischief and excitement with eccentric friends bringing adventure, fun, a laugh or two and inspiration for our hard times.

"They are warm, loving, joyful, and tearful, but always thought-provoking. I learned something extra about living my life by reading about Bob Olson's life."

-- Melvin L. Morse, M.D., bestselling author of Closer to the Light

"Bob Olson has descriptively written in the Mark Twain style his varied life experiences, reflecting his love of adventure. He includes the mischievous meandering of his youth...as Huck Finn in the great depression, sowing wild oats on the south side of Chicago, and experiencing multi-cultural diversity in relationships. His challenging army life, meeting the love of his life, Seiko, in Japan, his Haitian episode, and close calls with fame, are all interwoven with his treasured memories of Christmas. Throughout his book, Bob maintains a positive attitude. He has compassion for those less fortunate and a joie de vivre that is an inspiration to the reader...Very entertaining!"

The Noble Quran English Languange Edition Ultimate

The Noble Quran literally meaning "the recitation"; also romanized Qur'an or Koran is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from Allah SWT (God) It is widely regarded as the finest work in classical Arabic literature. The Quran is divided into chapters (surah in Arabic), which are then divided into verses (ayah).

Muslims believe that the Quran was verbally revealed by God to Muhammad through the angel Gabriel (Jibril), gradually over a period of approximately 23 years, beginning on 22 December 609 CE, when Prophet Muhammad SAW was 40, and concluding in 632, the year of his death. Muslims regard the Quran as the most important miracle of Prophet Muhammad SAW, a proof of his prophethood, and the culmination of a series of divine messages that started with the messages revealed to Prophet Adam (Pbuh) and ended with Prophet Muhammad SAW. The word "Quran" occurs some 70 times in the text of the Quran, although different names and words are also said to be references to the Quran.

According to the traditional narrative, several companions of Prophet Muhammad SAW served as scribes and were responsible for writing down the revelations. Shortly after Prophet Muhammad SAW passed away, the Quran was compiled by his companions who wrote down and memorized parts of it. These codices had differences that motivated the Caliph Uthman to establish a standard version now known as Uthman's codex, which is generally considered the archetype of the Quran known today. There are, however, variant readings, with mostly minor differences in meaning.

The Quran assumes familiarity with major narratives recounted in the Biblical scriptures. It summarizes some, dwells at length on others and, in some cases, presents alternative accounts and interpretations of events. The Quran describes itself as a book of guidance for mankind 2:185. It sometimes offers detailed accounts of specific historical events, and it often emphasizes the moral significance of an event over its narrative sequence. The Holy Quran is used along with authentic and reliable hadith to interpret sharia law. During prayers, the Quran is recited only in Arabic.

Someone who has memorized the entire Quran is called a hafiz. Quranic verse (ayah) is sometimes recited with a special kind of elocution reserved for this purpose, called tajwid. During the month of Ramadan, Muslims typically complete the recitation of the whole Quran during tarawih prayers. In order to extrapolate the meaning of a particular Quranic verse, most Muslims rely on exegesis, or tafsir.

Decoding The QURAN (A Unique Sufi Interpretation)

In this incredible age of increasing awareness and the rise of consciousness, where the intellect is craving to find the answers to the place and purpose of one's existence, we often find ourselves at an intersection of ancient texts and modern science, falling into an array of dichotomies. Decoding the Quran is a unique interpretation, which shows the integration of the two ways, highlighting non-duality of existence, and more importantly how the human being is an integral factor of this Oneness. It employs a holistic approach to the seemingly disconnected events, laws, edicts and commands of God, integrating this miraculous knowledge, to define how and why it is a concern to humans. What is the reality of a human being? Why is mankind reminded of their reality? What does the narrations of past events mean to us in our everyday? How should we understand the metaphors of the Quran? What is awaiting us after death? The answers to these questions, along with how man should understand the One denoted by the name Allah, are the most important and prominent topics covered in the Quran... Since the Quran addresses the whole of humanity throughout all ages as guidance to the truth, this particular construal has been done in the light of the realities of today.

The Truth of Life (A Path to Self-Discovery)

What do we know about the world that is beyond our physical perception? What does a man's lifetime in this world amount to if compared to the universal dimension of time? If there is no god up in the sky who expects worship from people, then what is the reason behind religious and spiritual practices? What are we going to experience through and beyond death? The author discusses what the Quran and modern sciences say about these topics and more.

Often the outcome was determined by questions and insecurities that started in middle school. This is why I wrote "Just Us Girls."

Coming To Jesus: One Man's Search for Truth and Life Purpose

Who am I? Why do I exist? What's the purpose of life? What happens when I die? Is there a God? If there's a God, who is He? Does He care about me? At age 14, Britt Gillette found himself alone in a hospital late at night struggling with the universal questions of life. You've probably asked yourself these same questions, and maybe you've found the answers. But for Britt, these were new questions, and he didn't like it at all that he didn't have the answers. So he set out on a personal quest to find the truth. Along the way, he examined the claims of every religion, philosopher, political leader, psychic, and mystic he could find, and what he discovered was nothing short of astounding. What he found changed his life forever, and maybe it can change yours too.

Leadership Lessons from the Life of Rasoolullah: Proven techniques of how to succeed in today's world

There is a distinct difference between how one whose core faith is that Muhammad(Peace be upon him) was the Messenger of Allah and how someone who does not hold this belief, writes about him. This book, however, is not simply an analysis of history. It is a labor of love and reverence while being analytical and objective. It is an attempt by one who not only believes that Muhammad(Peace be upon him) was the best leader that ever existed but who believes in him and his message and wants to share it. The life of Muhammad(Peace be upon him) the Messenger of Allah is rich and full of lessons. It has been so well documented and so much has been written about his life over the centuries that another attempt is almost unnecessary. However, I decided to write this for two reasons: to make the lessons from the life of Rasoolullah(Peace be upon him) relating specifically to leadership easily accessible to the seeker, whether Muslim or not; and to make an attempt to see how these lessons are applicable today in a world that is in principle, very similar to the world he lived in. My premise is this: Since he was able to change his world and take his people from being the most insignificant, oppressed and weakest to becoming the predominant, admired and strongest in just one generation; if we learn how he was able to do it, we will be able to learn how to succeed in our world today.

Buddhism#now: Big Questions. Inner Peace. LOL

Monkfish and DVD are friends. Well, sort of. DVD likes meat pies. And a pint. And girls. But he's often miserable. Quite reasonably, he needs to know why he's not happy. The problem is, the answers keep bringing up more questions. Monkfish reckons he knows a thing or two, if only DVD would let him get a word in and stop being difficult. He wants to blend modern science with the essence of Buddhism. DVD just wants a quick reply. Can the two quarrel their way to dealing with the Big Questions of life, the universe... and Buddhism (with a little help from the author and Auntie Joan)? And what exactly is 'inner peace' anyway? And can you still party? Dr. E Mapstone, author of Stop Dreaming, Start Living: "This book would appeal to those who are undaunted by a bit of slapstick comedy in the quest for a new meaning in life. The underlying message makes perfect sense!"Professor L. Todd, Newcastle University: "Dr Mellor's highly entertaining and informative introduction to Buddhism is also deeply scholarly... Certain to inspire."

Essence of Instruction (Upadesa Saram)

The great Tamil poet Muruganar approached the South Indian sage, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, and requested elucidation on the instruction which had been given by Lord Siva to the Rishis of Darukavanam (the Pine Forest). The Rishis had become hooked on action (karma) and every attainment threw up the desire for a further bigger, better attainment. They approached Siva and asked for help. Things have not changed much since then ... have they? The human condition continues to be enthralled with the shadows all the while oblivious to the all important source of the light. Sri Ramana Maharshi agreed and wrote this instruction in 30 verses. Later, the verses were translated into Telugu, Malayalam and, at the request of the great Sanskritist, Kavyakantha Ganapati Muni, they were also translated into Sanskrit. The Sanskrit work is known as Upadesa Saram (The Essence of Instruction). This is an English translation of that work with commentary by Miles Wright.

What Is Repentance? (Crucial Questions)

What does it mean to repent? Can we be saved if we don't repent? Does the command to repent in Scripture mean that we aren't saved through faith alone? Does true repentance mean we never commit the same sin again? As we consider Jesus' call to repent and believe the gospel, we often find ourselves asking these questions and many others. Dr. R.C. Sproul examines the biblical concept of repentance as a turning from one's old way of life. He holds up biblical models of repentance and considers repentance as it relates to being born again, helping us to understand what true repentance looks like.

Jubilee Bible: From the Scriptures of the Reformation

In the Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB), the usage and context tends to define each key word so you don't need to depend on theological dictionaries or reference materials. Careful attention has been made to properly translate the first usage of each key word and through to the last occurrence. Then, as the word makes its way across the Old Testament and you make the correct match with the corresponding Greek word in the New Testament, an amazing pattern emerges. The Jubilee Bible is the only translation we know of that has each unique Hebrew word matched and mated with a unique English word so that the usage (number of occurrences and number of verses where the word occurs) sets forth a meaningful number pattern and a complete definition of what God means by each word.

The Koran (Al-Qur'an)

THE Koran admittedly occupies an important position among the great religious books of the world. Though the youngest of the epoch-making works belonging to this class of literature, it yields to hardly any in the wonderful effect which it has produced on large masses of men. It has created an all but new phase of human thought and a fresh type of character. It first transformed a number of heterogeneous desert tribes of the Arabian peninsula into a nation of heroes, and then proceeded to create the vast politico-religious organisations of the Muhammedan world which are one of the great forces with which Europe and the East have to reckon to-day.

Names of Allah

So, how well do you know our Creator, Who planned you and the entire universe with a delicate equilibrium? Many people have mistaken ideas concerning Allah due to the effects of different cultures and information of dubious origins. However, Allah introduces Himself to humanity through the Qur'an He sent down 1,400 years ago and informs us of His beautiful names. This book, written to introduce you Allah, seeks to replace the vague, flawed, and insignificant information that you may have acquired over the years with the genuine faith described in the Qur'an so that you may come to know Allah, the All-Mighty, better and draw nearer to Him.

Revelation Unveiled: Understanding the Heart of Jesus in the Imminent Day of the Lord

The book of Revelation should be of intense interest to today's Christian. It describes not only the persecution that originates from Satan, but also announces the day when God will intervene and cleanse the earth. This is definitely something to look forward to if we are right with him. Not so much for those living for themselves. Sadly, many commentaries on Revelation ignore the need to have a clean heart in order to survive what's coming. In this edition, we dig deep into the signs, the wonders, and the genuine Christian's role in the soon-to-be-fulfilled book of Revelation. We even go back to the prophets to help clarify what is the most important message to Christians today. About the Author Russell Stendal, a former hostage of Colombian rebels, is a lifelong missionary to that same group in the jungles of Colombia. He is an influential friend to military and government leaders in Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, and the United States. Russell's ministry shares the gospel via twelve radio stations, hundreds of thousands of Bibles, books, and movies distributed through airplane parachute drops and numerous speaking engagements for groups of leaders, prisoners, and individuals. Russell goes wherever the Lord leads, whether it's to speak with a president or to go deep into the jungle to help an individual in trouble. He has witnessed thousands commit their lives to Christ.

Tao Te Ching

Some Secrets of the Quran

in the Qur'an, along with prayers, commands, prohibitions and high moral standards, God communicates many secrets to mankind. These are truly important secrets, and an attentive eye can witness these throughout his life. No other source than the Qur'an holds these secrets. The Qur'an is the unique source of secrets that those people, no matter how intelligent, literate or astute they are, could never hope to find anywhere else. That some people cannot see while others have a grasp of some hidden messages in the Qur'an is another secret created by God. Those who do not seek these secrets revealed in the Qur'an, live in distress and difficulty. Ironically, they never know the cause of their distress. Those who learn about these secrets of the Qur'an, on the other hand, lead an easy, joyful life. This book deals with the subjects related to some verses God has revealed to mankind as a secret. When a person reads these verses, and his attention is drawn to the secrets in these verses, what he must do is to seek the divine purposes hidden in events and evaluate everything in the light of the Qur'an. Then, people will realise with excitement that the secrets of the Qur'an control both their own lives and those of others alike.

What Is the Relationship Between Church and State (Crucial Questions)

How should Christians view the state? God calls Christians to honor the governing authorities (Rom. 13:1 7), but we know that this is no easy task. Should Christians lobby the state to obey God's law? Must believers obey the state at all times, no matter what it commands? Does the church have any say in how the state is governed, and does the state have any say in how the church should be administrated? The answers to these questions aren't simple. In this booklet, Dr. R.C. Sproul considers the biblical principles that direct the Christian's understanding of the state.

How to Pray.And Get Prayers Answered!: A Testimony of My Walk With Christ

I wrote this book for the purpose of teaching people how to understand and develop personal relationships with God. I feel that understanding who your heavenly father is and how he operates through relationship is the foundation for not only praying, but in getting prayers answered. At the age of eighteen I began to desire an intimate relationship with God after witnessing my best friend pray to God and instantly get a response. I saw firsthand how alive the God we serve was, and how this type of intimate relationship could be achieved with the right direction. I believe the problem is not that God does not speak to his people, but that his people do not know how to hear his voice. This book will teach: The proper perception we must have of God to form an intimate relationship. How to pray prayers that can actually be answered Hinderances that prevent prayers from being answered Certain requirements that must be present for a prayer to be answered. How to hear God's voice And much more!.... As a bonus blessing, I have also included for my readers: "The Seven Steps to Victory in a Crisis Situation.""

God's Works of Creation

This study looks closely at the Genesis account of Creation in Genesis, chapter one. Key Hebrew words are analyzed. Discussion is presented about some of the more popular views about Creation, such as the Big Bang Theory, the Theory of Evolution, the Gap Theory, the Age-Day Theory, and Pantheism. Key creation terms, such as Fiat Creationism, Progressive Creationism, and Theistic Evolution are defined. The role of the Second Law of Thermodynamics as it pertains to Creation is discussed. At the end of the commentary on the first chapter in Genesis, the creation and impacts of angels is briefly examined. The book concludes with God's Plan of Salvation. All three Persons of the Trinity were present at Creation. Genesis 1:2 confirms that the third Person of the Trinity, who is the Holy Spirit, was there. Colossians 1:16 confirms that the second Person of the Trinity was present. In talking about Jesus, that verse says, "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him." Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the Apostle Paul credited Jesus with being the Creator of the heaven and the earth. Much of today's scientific research is looking for ways to explain away the problems associated with both of science's two Creation theories. Even some theologians and Bible people have suggested that maybe God used a big bang and evolution to do His work. But those notions cannot be supported by facts or by valid scientific reasoning. Believing the Big Bang theory and the Theory of Evolution requires more faith than simply accepting the Genesis account of Creation. No one can fully understand the concept of an eternal God that does not measure time as we. No one can understand how God could simply speak things into existence. But I believe that He did exactly that. Backing up the scientific view are years of bad scien

Beyond Enlightenment: Buddhism, Religion, Modernity (Routledge Critical Studies in Buddhism)

The vast majority of books on Buddhism describe the Buddha using the word enlightened, rather than awakened. This bias has resulted in Buddhism becoming generally perceived as the eponymous religion of enlightenment. "Beyond Enlightenment" is a sophisticated study of some of the underlying assumptions involved in the study of Buddhism (especially, but not exclusively, in the West). It investigates the tendency of most scholars to ground their study of Buddhism in these particular assumptions about the Buddha's enlightenment and a particular understanding of "religion", which is traced back through Western orientalists to the Enlightenment and the Protestant Reformation. Placing a distinct emphasis on Indian Buddhism, Richard Cohen adeptly creates a work that will appeal to those with an interest in Buddhism and India, and also scholars of religion and history.

Untrumpable: How Betting Against Theism Is A Fool's Bet Or What Pascal Should Have Said

One of the most important questions upon which man will ever be forced to wager is this: given our uncertainty about the afterlife, so what? In this book, Moore argues that our uncertainty about the afterlife should matter to us greatly, if we are wise. And in order to complete the failed task that Blaise Pascal initiated, the provision of a sound and valid argument about how to wager on the afterlife under uncertainty, Moore argues for and defends the following new argument. In sum: 1. Foolishness occurs under the following conditions: (a) when one is aware of a severe threat to his or her most relevant interest, (b) when one knows how to minimize the risks to such an interest against such a threat and (c) when, in the face of such a threat-awareness, one flouts his or her risk minimization know-how, opting to hope solely in luck's favor. 2.The possibility of a just and severely retributive afterlife counts as a real and severe threat to our most relevant interests (and it is the only sort of afterlife possibility that does so). 3. Despite our uncertainty about the afterlife, we know how to minimize our risks against such a threat. 4. Therefore, given both that we are aware of such a severe threat to our most relevant interest and that we know how to minimize our risks to such, whenever we choose not to live in accordance with such know-how we are acting foolishly. After carefully building his case for this conclusion, Moore lays out its implications, responds to many foreseeable objections and, in the final chapter, closes with a fitting and uncommon defense of Christianity as a beautiful and wise hope.

Metaphor and Literalism in Buddhism: The Doctrinal History of Nirvana (Routledge Critical Studies in Buddhism)

This book studies the doctrinal development of the Pali "Nirvana" and subsequent tradition and compares it with the Chinese "Agama" and its traditional interpretation. The author clarifies early doctrinal developments of "Nirvana" and traces the word and related terms back to their original metaphorical contexts, elucidating diverse interpretations and doctrinal and philosophical developments in the "abhidharma" exegeses and treatises of Southern and Northern Buddhist schools. The book finally examines which school, if any, kept the original meaning and reference of "Nirvana".

Christianity, Islam and Nationalism in Indonesia (Routledge Contemporary Southeast Asia Series)

Although over eighty percent of the country is Muslim, Indonesia is marked by an extraordinary diversity in language, ancestry, culture, religion and ways of life. This book focuses on the Christian Dani of West Papua, providing a social and ethnographic history of the most important indigenous population in the troubled province. It presents a fascinating overview of the Dani's conversion to Christianity, examining the social, religious and political uses to which they have put their new religion. Based on independent research carried out over many years among the Dani people, the book provides an abundance of new material on religious and political events in West Papua. Underlining the heart of Christian-Muslim rivalries, the book questions the fate of religion in late-modern times.

Buddhism in the Public Sphere: Reorienting Global Interdependence (Routledge Critical Studies in Buddhism)

The core teachings and practices of Buddhism are systematically directed toward developing keen and caring insight into the relational or interdependent nature of all things. Hershock applies Buddhist thought to reflect on the challenges to public good, created by emerging social, economic, and political realities associated with increasingly complex global interdependence. In eight chapters, the key arenas for public policy are addressed: the environment, health, media, trade and development, the interplay of politics and religion, international relations, terror and security, and education. Each chapter explains how a specific issue area has come to be shaped by complex interdependence and offers specific insights into directing the growing interdependence towards greater equity, sustainability, and freedom. Thereby, a sustained meditation on the meaning and means of realizing public good is put forward, which results in a solid Buddhist conception of diversity. Hershock argues that concepts of Karma and emptiness are relevant across the full spectrum of policy domains and that Buddhist concepts become increasingly forceful as concerns shift from the local to the global. A remarkable text on this fascinating religion, "Buddhism in the Public Sphere" will be of interest to scholars and students in Buddhist Studies and Asian religions in general.

Healing Ruby

Ruby Graves, a young girl in Depression-era Alabama, faces the hardships of poverty and loss with as much faith as she can muster. At only the age of thirteen, she's already lost a younger brother to illness, and now faces losing both her father and the boy who's stealing her heart to illnesses as well. Armed with her beloved Scriptures, she prays daily for their healing, only to have her tender faith shattered by her father's death. Through her pain, she's able to connect with her long-lost Uncle Asa, who's mere presence at his brother's funeral brings murmurs of a scandalous past involving her parents and a prominent local pastor, Irwin Cass. When Ruby discovers that one of Asa'a many secrets is an ability to heal, and that she may be next in line for the "gift," she vows to find the faith that has eluded her so far, a faith that could mean never losing loved ones again. But faith and doubt can't reside in the same heart, not according to her father, and doubt is Ruby's constant companion. As she struggles to find the true meaning of faith, she's opposed at every turn by the pastor who would see her family destroyed and a community that can't see deeper than the color of one's skin. Through her search for a faith that could move mountains and a true understanding of her gift, can Ruby trust in a God that may require the ultimate sacrifice?
