All About Jesus: The Single Story from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John

This title is all about Jesus. The words recorded in it were written about Jesus over 2000 years ago. Yet today his message of peace, hope, love, and forgiveness still resonates with people of all races, nationalities, educational, and economic backgrounds. Some like what he said while others disagree with what he said. But almost everyone finds im intriguing.

The Autobiography of St Ignatius Loyola

This account of the life of St. Ignatius, dictated by himself, is considered by the Bollandists the most valuable record of the great Founder of the Society of Jesus. The editors of the Stimmen Aus Maria Laach, the German review, as well as those of the English magazine, The Month, tell us that it, more than any other work, gives an insight into the spiritual life of St. Ignatius. Few works in ascetical literature, except the writings of St. Teresa and St. Augustine, impart such a knowledge of the soul. To understand fully the Spiritual Exercises, we should know something of the man who wrote them. In this life of St. Ignatius, told in his own words, we acquire an intimate knowledge of the author of the Exercises. We discern the Saint's natural disposition, which was the foundation of his spiritual character. We learn of his conversion, his trials, the obstacles in his way, the heroism with which he accomplished his great mission. This autobiography of St. Ignatius is the groundwork of all the great lives of him that have been written. Bartoli draws from it, Genelli develops it, the recent magnificent works of Father Clair, S.J., and of Stewart Rose are amplifications of this simple story of the life of St. Ignatius. The Saint in his narrative always refers to himself in the third person, and this mode of speech has here been retained. Many persons who have neither the time, nor, perhaps, the inclination, to read larger works, will read, we trust, with pleasure and profit this autobiography. Ignatius, as he lay wounded in his brother's house, read the lives of the saints to while away the time. Touched by grace, he cried, "What St. Francis and St. Dominic have done, that, by God's grace, I will do." May this little book, in like manner, inspire its readers with the desire of imitating St. Ignatius. THE EDITOR. Easter, 1900. College of St. Francis Xavier, New York.

STORIES FROM THE LIFE OF JESUS, BY HIS MOTHER: Edited by Christopher Antony Meade

When the young Virgin Mary is informed by an angel that she is pregnant with the very special baby Jesus, despite not even being married, she takes the news with great equanimity. Nine months later, when she's struggling through a difficult labour in a stable with cows and donkeys breathing down her neck, the Blessed Virgin feels a lot less pacific. The birth of the baby Jesus changes all that though and Mary knows that she will love Him forever, no matter what the future brings.

And the future does indeed bring a lot of heartache (and annoyance) into the life of the Mother of God. Having to deal with the complications of having a Divine Son is only part of the story for Mary. There are also some very eccentric relatives to be contended with and even miracles can sometimes have unexpected consequences. The roller-coaster life, the young mother is embarking on, swings her from the highs of the Nativity and the visit of the Three Kings, to the devastating heartbreak of the Crucifixion. Never a dull moment for this Blessed Virgin. All of the sadness and a lot of the fun also, that permeates the life story of Jesus and His Blessed Mother, is contained within the pages of this hilarious, but loving, account. You can never look at the Bible stories the same way again, after reading this highly original retelling of "The Greatest Story Ever Told".

Cara J Alexander

"When I first saw this book I confess to being somewhat surprise. To take on this subject the writer must either be very brave or completely daft!!!!!! Christopher in my opinion is certainly brave mixed with a very whacky sense of humour."

Robert

"If you enjoy satire that is not caustic, realize nothing in life is as noble as we might wish it to be, and need a few laughs and chuckles, give the story a read."

Kitty Muse Book Reviews

"True or not, these memories are in turn hilarious, tragic, and touching. And never once is there anything disrespectful written in these pages. This is what truly made me love this book.

I suspect that somewhere above, the heavenly hosts are laughing their haloes off from reading Mr Meade's wonderful book."

The Story of Prophet Adam In Islam

Prophet Adam is believed to have been the first human being and (Prophet) on Earth, in Islam. Adam's role as the father of the human race is looked upon by Muslims with reverence. Muslims also refer to his wife, Hawa (Eve), as the "mother of mankind". Muslims see Prophet Adam as the first Muslim, as the Qur'an states that all the Prophets preached the same faith of Islam (Submission to One God).

The Qur'an and hadith give the same account of the creation of Adam and Eve. Synthesizing the Qur'an with Sunni hadith can produce the following account. According to the Qur'an, when Allah (God) informed the angels that he was going to put a successor on Earth, they questioned whether the human would cause blood shed and damage, but he told them that he knew what they did not. He created Adam from clay and breathed life into him. Hadith add that he was named Adam after the clay he was made out of, or the skin (adim) of the earth. Returning to the Qur'an, when God asked all the angels to prostrate before Adam, they all obeyed, except Iblis (Lucifer). He said, "I am made from fire, when Adam is from clay. I am better than him. I am not going to prostrate before him."

Sunni hadith say that while Adam was sleeping, God took a rib from him and from it he created Eve (Hawa); however, while the creation of Adam and Eve is referred to in the Qur'an, the exact method of creation is not specified. The Qur'an then says that God commanded that Adam and Eve not eat from one tree in the garden of Eden, but Iblis (Lucifer) was able to convince them to taste it. They then began to cover themselves because they now knew that they were naked. For this, God banished Adam and Eve to earth; non-canonical Sunni hadith say that fruits were turned to thorns and pregnancy became dangerous. Non-canonical Sunni hadith also say that Adam and Eve were cast down far apart, so that they had to search for each other and eventually met each other at Mount Arafat.

In Islamic theology, it is not believed that Adam's sin is carried by all of his children. Hadith say that once Prophet Adam was on earth, God taught him how to plant seeds and bake bread. This was to become the way of all of Adam's children, Prophet Adam proceeded to live for about 1000 years.

Out of the Dust: Story of an Unlikely Missionary (Free eBook Sampler)

"Don't waste your pain," says unlikely missionary Avis Goodhart. She didn't - and neither should you.

Despite a background of childhood abuse, dyslexia, and marital infidelity, Avis took her first international mission trip at age fifty. The church, school, and orphanage she later founded in northern Peru, all products of both her pain and her radical obedience to the Lord, have brought thousands of others out of the dust. This compelling story of an ordinary woman who serves God in extraordinary ways will challenge, inspire, and empower you to:

Eliminate excuses from your life

Recognize that in God's kingdom, availability matters more than ability

Allow your pain to produce - not prevent - your obedience

Serve the Lord with the same abandon shown by one unlikely missionary

Note: Proceeds from the sale of this book are sent to the author's orphanage in Peru.

About the Authors

Avis Goodhart, founder of Go Ye Ministries, is a missionary, Bible teacher, and conference speaker who has blessed audiences across North, South, and Central America. Although she holds a B.S.Ed. and M.Ed. from the University of Arkansas, her primary qualifications include the pain and obstacles she's encountered along the way. These provide both insight and passion for her work in bringing the lives of countless orphans, volunteers, and others out of the dust. Avis, a widow, has five children and twenty-two grandchildren.

Marti Pieper's prayer involvement moved her to assist Brent and Deanna Higgins in telling their son's story in I Would Die for You, which became a young adult bestseller. Marti, who has a B.S.Ed. from Ohio State University and an M.Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, has written multiple books and often teaches at writers' conferences.

The Reformers: Biographical Sketches of Twelve of the Greatest Men in the History of the Church

Welcome to The Reformers! This is a short book that I believe will be immensely helpful to Christians who desire to gain a glimpse into the lives of some of the most profound and godly men in the history of the Church. These small bios were written over the course of a few years by different authors who wanted to share their insights into some of the men who have been used of God to shape the history and doctrines of the Church.

Saint Padre Pio: In the Footsteps of Saint Francis

In an age that smirks at the mention of miracles, sin, angels, and demons, St. Pio of Pietrelchina has emerged as a figure of immense popularity, attracting fascination, veneration, and also emulation. Padre Pio, who once wrote in a letter, "I am a mystery to myself," is certainly a mystery to all who know of him. To those who moved beyond mere credulity, he became an inspiration to embrace the fullness of faith. Perhaps that is why his shrine in outlying San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy, is second only to the Vatican itself in annual number of pilgrims and why Italian Catholics now report to praying more for St. Pio's intercession than for that of any other saint. This book is a concise introduction to Padre Pio's life, especially as compared to the example and journey of his spiritual father, St. Francis of Assisi. If St. Francis is said to be the most popular saint of all time, Franciscan Capuchin Padre Pio is perhaps the most popular saint of our times. Given that he passed only in 1968, it is remarkable to think that such a spiritual "superhero" could exist in our modern age. Through not spared from misfortune, he was spared those things that cloud us from perceiving the world in a truly spiritual way. Perhaps that is why Padre Pio offers us just the message we need to hear.

The Autobiography of Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh

BHAI SAHIB RANDHIR SINGH (1878-1961) was an outstanding freedom-fighter and a great saint and theologian who has made a lasting contribution to the religious and cultural revival in Punjab, and was one of the first few Punjabi revolutionaries who staked their life and career to bring about political awakening and win freedom for their country. Son of a High Court Judge and educated in Govt. College and Mission College, Lahore, Bhai Randhir Singh ushered a moral and spiritual revival which set into motion what later on came to be known as Gurdwara Reform Movement. In the Rakabganj Affair (1913) it was his stern challenge to the British Government and stirring call to the people to organize resistance, which prevented the further desecration of the historic shrine.

In 1914, he was the only non-emigrant Sikh leader who completely identified himself with the cause of the Ghadar Party and suffered imprisonment for seventeen long years. He is known to historians of this period as "Hero of the First supplementary Lahore Conspiracy Case''. He is the only Sikh Leader who, in the last hundred years or more, has been given 'Hukamnamas' and Robes of Honour by the (then) four Takhats of the Panth, in solemn recognition of his sacrifices and impact on his times. His deep and original expositions of various aspects of Sikhism (more than 30 books) are a lasting contribution to Sikh theology, philosophy and mysticism. He distinguished himself in Punjabi prose and poetry by an erudite and powerful grand style of his own.

This autobiography, originally compiled from his letters from the various prisons and published in Punjabi, has been translated by Dr. Trilochan Singh, who was associated with Bhai Sahib during last 20 years of his life. To the translation Dr. Trilochan Singh has added a lengthy introductory thesis, based on through research work, throwing light on Bhai Sahib's early life and giving fairly detailed account of Bhai Randhir Singh's role in Rakabganj Affair and the Ghadar Party Revolution. Some of the facts revealed by him are a significant contribution to the history of this period. They bring to light the achievement and results of the Ghadar Revolution, and its impact on subsequent phases of Freedom Movement.

This is the first electronic publication of this nature by Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh Trust UK (Registered Charity No: 1144954). With the blessings of the Almighty and support of the Sangat, we can hopefully publish more of Bhai Sahib's work in this way. Any proceeds and donations will go towards making more work of this nature available and for other charitable causes.

The Story of Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim) In Islam

Prophet Ibrahim known as Prophet Abraham in the Hebrew Bible, is recognized as a prophet and messenger in Islam of Allah (God). Abraham plays a prominent role as an example of faith in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In Muslim belief, Abraham fulfilled all the commandments and trials wherein God nurtured him throughout his lifetime. As a result of his unwavering faith in God, Abraham was promised by God to be a leader to all the nations of the world.

The Quran extols Abraham as a model, an exemplar, obedient and not an idolator. In this sense, Abraham has been described as representing "primordial man in universal surrender to the Divine Reality before its fragmentation into religions separated from each other by differences in form". The Islamic holy day Eid al-Adha is celebrated in memory of the bravery of Abraham, and Muslims perform the pilgrimage to pay homage at the Ka'bah in the Hijazi city of Mecca, which they believe Abraham had set up and reformed.

Muslims believe that the prophet Abraham became the leader of the righteous in his time, and that it was through him that people of both the Arabian Peninsula (Adnanites in particular) and Israel came. Abraham, in the belief of Islam, was instrumental in cleansing the world of idolatry at the time.

Paganism was cleared out by Abraham in both Arabia and Canaan. He spiritually purified both places as well as physically sanctifying the houses of worship. Abraham and Ismail (Ishmael) further established the rites of pilgrimage, or Hajj, which are still followed by Muslims today. Muslims maintain that Abraham further asked God to bless both the lines of his progeny, of Ismail and Ishaq (Isaac), and to keep all of his descendants in the protection of God.

What Is Islam Faith?

Among the blessings and favors that God has bestowed upon humanity is that He endowed them with an innate ability to recognize and acknowledge His existence. He placed this awareness deep in their hearts as a natural disposition that has not changed since human beings were first created. Furthermore, He reinforced this natural disposition with the signs that he placed in creation that testify to His existence. However, since it is not possible for human beings to have a detailed knowledge of God except through revelation from Himself, God sent His Messengers to teach the people about their Creator Who they must worship. These Messengers also brought with them the details of how to worship God, because such details cannot be known except by way of revelation. These two fundamentals were the most important things that the Messengers of all the divine revelations brought with them from God.

The ultimate goal of every Divine Message has always been the same: to guide the people to God, to make them aware of Him, and to have them worship Him alone. Each Divine Message came to strengthen this meaning, and the following words were repeated on the tongues of all the Messengers: "Worship God, you have no god other than Him." This message was conveyed to humanity by prophets and messengers which God sent to every nation. All of these messengers came with this same message, the message of Islam.

Mary, Mother of Jesus: A Study of the Ideal Woman: Learning From and Emulating the Ultimate Example of Womanhood (Transformational Bible Studies)

Mary was chosen by God among billions of women to be one of the most important participants in God's great plan of salvation. This book is about that most amazing woman. Besides being a tribute to her; it is also meant to spotlight the virtues she exhibited that all women should emulate-and, in some aspects, men as well.

Trees Tall as Mountains: Volume 1 (The Journey Mama Writings)

In 2005, Rachel Devenish Ford, 25-year-old pregnant mother of two, moved with her husband to the woods of Northern California and began her blog, Journey Mama. In writing about her life-all the funny things, the sad things, and the beautiful- she found a way to see it again for the first time, and a way to cultivate joy in a life that had been overwhelming to her. In the process, she encouraged and inspired people around the world. The first in a series, Trees Tall as Mountains is a collection of the best posts of the first three years of Journey Mama. In them, Rachel Devenish Ford describes life in an intentional community, her love for her Superstar Husband, her dysfunctional relationship with large grocery stores, and the antics of her young children. As Rachel works to overcome sometimes crushing anxiety, love the people around her, and grow in her faith in God, she writes about it all with tenderness and humor. Funny and profound, Trees Tall as Mountains is a life-changing book.

Legal Discrimination

Imagine finding out that you had been brainwashed into believing you were helping people, just to find out you were actually hurting them. For years Nehemiah Flynt provided therapeutic foster care without realizing the harm he was helping the government inflict on innocent children and families. By the grace of God, the blinders fell off and he began to see the wickedness of "the system." Children's bodies were being pumped full of experimental medications, parents' homes were being raided based upon false allegations, young people were being pulled out of school so frequently they were falling behind academically, youths were being moved unnecessarily from placement to placement, causing them to develop attachment disorders, etc. When Nehemiah began to question the maltreatment of children and teenagers in the state's care, he was threatened with having his foster home shut down. Not knowing what else to do, he backed off - for a while. However, he eventually decided enough was enough and ceased fostering. Later, Flynt took charge of a successful Christian-based facility for at-risk youths. He soon, learned, however, that the government of the United States is so narrow-minded that they would stop at nothing to close any facility operating under moral or religious principles differing from their own devilish agendas. Legal Discrimination will be a real eye-opener for the majority of its readers. You will be shocked when you find out how the government has created agencies which operate above the law simply to discriminate against biological families (especially conservative Christian homes), private schools, homeschooling families, and anyone who expects their constitutional rights to be upheld.

A Five Star of the Original book by M.B. on Amazon.com:

Beautiful book. Finally, a story of today, told in God's own language.

I don't think it's inappropriate to suggest that you put this on the shelf with your KJV, and take it down as frequently. Especially when there are young girls in the room, who need so much guidance in these times.

Not that I think that the Rapture is far off, but I think that in the fullness of time that this book, being in God's own language, will become part of the Holy Scripture. Those who need instruction and encouragement, in order to believe in Jesus (Who suffered the little ones to come to Him), will find it in Judge Moore's story, just as much as they find it in Judges, or in those parts of the Gospel that tell us how Jesus will judge the wicked, in Washington and New York, and cast them into the Lake of Fire.
