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 Religion of the Samurai: A Study of Zen Philosophy and Discipline in China and Japan

Zen was uniquely suited to the Samurai of Japan. The high moral principles of Buddhism, when adopted and adapted by the Japanese warriors who became the Samurai, created an austere philosophy of singular beauty and depth. Its characteristic requirements of strict control over body and mind was exemplified by ancient warrior monks whose serene countenance, even in the face of certain death, made them much admired even by their foes.

Zen may be the most misunderstood of the world's moral philosophies. While it is often classified as a Religion, it is frequently considered by its adherents to be a utilitarian philosophy, a collection of rational moral precepts or, even more simply, as a state of being. The aim of the practice of Zen is to become Enlightened and achieve the beatitude of Nirvana.

To reach Nirvana means to achieve the state of extinction of pain and the annihilation of sin. Zen never looks for the realization of its beatitude in a place like heaven, nor believes in the realm of Reality transcendental of the phenomenal universe, nor gives countenance to the superstition of Immortality, nor does it hold the world is the best of all possible worlds, nor conceives life simply as blessing. It is in this life, full of shortcomings, misery, and sufferings, that Zen hopes to realize its beatitude. It is in this world, imperfect, changing, and moving, that Zen finds the Divine Light it worships. It is in this phenomenal universe of limitation and relativity that Zen aims to attain to highest Nirvana.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

Christmas Angel

A steady crackling came to my ears. It was heavier than any animal or bird I knew of and rather uneven. Stomp. Scrape. Stomp. Scrape. I flicked my gaze over my shoulder. "Who's there?" I called, and I gripped my rifle. No one ever came here but me, but maybe something had happened with Paula or the baby.

"Bri?" I called.

Silence. A chill crept up my spine. Someone watched me. I was sure of it. Standing tall, I lifted my rifle. "Come out whoever you are."

-----

Angel Taylor had her life all figured out until her best friend shoved Elias Harper off on her. What's she need with a boy anyway? But Marta said he liked to dance and somehow that was appealing.

However, something strange is happening in town and this right before Christmas. Is Elias involved? What is the secret he keeps from her? And what should she do when her life changes for good?

Clean Historical Romance by best-selling author, SUZANNE D. WILLIAMS.

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.

The Book of Revelation: Plain and Simple

Sometimes theologians write so difficult, that a reader is getting confused in labyrinths of their unclear thoughts. Timothy Medvedev dared to write a book about one of the most difficult biblical texts - the book of Revelation.

The Essence of Man

The Essence of Man is a re-evaluation, or perhaps a renovation, of what has for centuries been indisputably accepted as the fundamental teachings of Islam. By deconstructing the outer conventional meanings of the many religious or, more specifically, Islamic labels and concepts, the reader is taken to explore the underlying universal meanings of the symbols and metaphors of their faith, and hence the essence of their self. What is the purpose of religion? What is Sufism? What state of existence lies beyond death? Who or what is referenced by the name 'Allah'? What was the ultimate reality Muhammad (saw) wanted to share with mankind? Why does one have to engage in certain practices and comply with the sunnah? How can one escape 'duality' and advance to higher states of consciousness? And, most important of all, what is the essence of all of these 'essential teachings' man has been advised to follow? Through a compilation of various writings and talks, Ahmed Hulusi takes his readers back to the core and redefines what it means to be a Muslim.

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.

"My word is like the snow and rain that come down from the sky to water the earth. They make the crops grow and provide seed for sowing and food to eat. So also will be the word that I speak - it will not fail to do what I plan for it; it will do everything I send it to do." (Isaiah 55:10-11)

This series by Tata Velasquez: Teaching Kids Life Lessons with Stories from Bible will do just that... Teach kids life lessons with stories from the Bible.

This first installment, "Obedience: The Story of Jonah, the Man who Learned Obedience the Hard Way" will teach kids how to obey.

This book and series will change your kids' life. Yes, one bible story at a time. Yours too.

"The book and its content is straightforward, length of story is good for its intended early and young readers.. I believe that is is best for story-telling and teaching kids time than for kids' independent reading. It is spot on as a teaching resource and the story of Jonah is told very well." - Devi Zerna, Australia

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.

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).

Does God Control Everything? (Crucial Questions)

Dr. R.C. Sproul explores and explains the Christian doctrine of providence, the teaching that God is the sovereign ruler of the universe. He then deals with some of the philosophical and theological questions and objections the doctrine raises. His teaching challenges popular assumptions about the universe and exalts God as the sovereign ruler and sustainer of all things.

The Charities of Islam

Since the September 11, 2001 attacks, much time, money, and effort has been spent arguing over whether Islam itself is a religion of peace. Much of the discussion has centered around the abundant media coverage of heinous acts of terrorism that have been carried out in the religion's name. Whether such acts reflect the 'true nature' of the religion is beyond the scope of this book.

This book is simply an attempt to shed some light on the other side of the story. Just as the fact that unjustified and outright evil acts of terror have been committed in the name of Islam, it can also not be denied that other people conduct acts of charity in its name at least as frequently. This book informs readers about just a few of them.

The author makes no claims as to whether Islam is by nature a peaceful and charitable religion. Instead, he simply provides information to readers that they would unlikely have found simply by reading, watching, and listening to traditional media outlets. For anyone attempting to get a better grasp on this religion, this book is a must-read because it discusses those things that are much harder to find. McGeady does an excellent job of providing readers with a fresh perspective on a religion about which the public's perception is largely negative without making any grandiose claims beyond a simple sharing of additional facts beyond those that most readers already know.

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit: Its Purpose and Power (Christian Discipleship Series Book 3)

Jesus commanded His disciples to be baptized in water. However, Jesus also commanded His disciples to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. This raises a very important question: if we received the Holy Spirit when we were saved, then why do we need to be baptized in the Holy Spirit after we are saved? This eBook explains the reason why every serious Christian needs to be baptized in the Holy Spirit, and also clarifies the proper use of the gift of tongues, our God-given new language.

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.

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.

Manifestations: Life After Death - For like-minds who wonder, why they're here and where they go after they die...

The Narrator

It begins with its narrator who is clearly a higher power: God, Allah, JA, Yahweh, Jehovah, The Great Spirit, Amen, etc.

The narrator does not dwell on that; for clearly, as you will read, it is beneath it to mention; for the logic of the narrator cuts through the concept of true religion and traditional worship.

Once the deity establishes itself, you will find yourself giving it leeway to discover what new scientific or spiritual information it has to offer.

The narrator does not let down.

Personal Transformation

After whisking you through creation, the narrator gives us a glimpse at the Earthly Realm, human history, knowledge of self, and the ever changing of self.

The way the narrator weaves these ideas together and still addresses reincarnation, science and religion, without offending them is what separates this text from the ancient scriptures.

The narrator is intelligent, quick witted, and detailed. Moreover, the deity articulates the present life only as a precursor to our life after life. As the text suggests, life then truly begins.

Near Death Experience

To start the transformation, the narrator allows you to experience death and enter the first of seven realms of the afterlife. This is where, as a reader, you expect a complicated, sketchy explanation.

The narrator makes it simple. The Astral Realm is the first realm that is introduced. As an astral being, the narrator introduces the new challenges that await you.

Similar to how the narrator explained the Earthly Realm; the Astral Realm is explained in just as much detail, yet, simple, so the common person can understand it.

The narrator then takes us to The Realm of Contemplation. It is here that all thoughts lie dormant. Just like the previous two realms, the narrator walks you through the realm while teaching.

This is continued until the seventh level is visited and explained.

Heaven and Hell

This work is a work of eschatology. Where one may read about heaven and hell in the Bible, Qu'ran or Ramayana, the concept of Heaven and Hell are not mentioned in Manifestations.

Could it be that they do not exist? Or perhaps we may need to change our concept of it. The text agrees with Kemetic Science as it supports life after death. According do Manifestations, even in the afterlife, good souls can suffer, if they do not strive to be masters.

Bhagavad Gita (Shambhala Library)

The Bhagavad Gita ("Song of the Lord") is considered the most influential of all the Hindu scriptures and is one of the greatest spiritual classics of the world. Comprised of eighteen chapters taken from the great Sanskrit epic Mahabharata, the Gita presents a conversation that takes place on a battlefield just as two groups of relatives are about to wage war against one another. Facing the forces of greed, anger, and hatred, the warrior-prince Arjuna loses heart and refuses to fight his own kin. His friend and charioteer, Lord Krishna, who represents the Divine within, tells him: "Your very nature will drive you to fight." In the ensuing dialogue, Krishna teaches Arjuna, and all of us, how we can face bravely the unavoidable challenges and conflicts of life--and win the greatest of all battles, against the tumultuous emotions within our own hearts.

"If you want to better understand how today's headlines might be fulfilling biblical prophecy, then read this book... This book will help ensure that your faith is built on Christ alone and the assurance of spending eternity with Him, not the sometimes-scary flow of history.

Joel Richardson

New York Times bestselling author and internationally recognized teacher

Arab Spring, Christian Winter will help you tie newspaper headlines to your scriptural knowledge of the Last Days. Ralph Stice draws a clear link between the Arab Spring and the rise of a worldwide power that appears to be ushering in the coming Antichrist.

This book will also show you what you need to watch for in tomorrow's news and guide you on how to fortify your faith for stormy days ahead. The Western Church has much to learn from Christian brothers and sisters in the Middle East. Familiar Scripture passages are unfolding with new clarity to believers everywhere.

Learn:

oWhy the Arab Spring had to happen to fulfill scriptural prophecy

oHow the Arab Spring led to the unleashing of pure Islam

oWhich nation could be the crucial link between East and West and produce an Antichrist figure

oThe responses of Middle Eastern Christians to intense persecution and what we Western believers can learn from them

Fear not! He will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). We will discover Jesus in a fresh way when we face true persecution. How will your faith withstand the great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now--and never to be equaled again (Matthew 24:21)? Brothers and sisters in Christ are facing this reality every day, right now.

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.

Winter, 1660.

Commentary On Colossians

Paul's letter to the Colossians weaves together high theology with holy living, and exhortations with warnings. Its main theme is the fullness of Christ, and the fullness that Christians have in him. Christ's person and work are complete, and Christians have benefited from this completeness. Any attempt to supplement or replace the person and work of Christ therefore undermines and devalues him, and compromises the Christian faith. This commentary confronts several controversial doctrines, including the incomprehensibility of God and the origin of sin and evil. Other features include a summary of systematic theology from the perspective of christology, discussions on true versus false philosophy, true versus false spirituality, what it means to see the Father by "looking at" Jesus, the priorities of Paul in life and prayer, and the true nature of the Great Commission.

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. Brenda reluctantly agrees, knowing she has no other choice. But her new career in pairs skating takes on a new twist when she finds out Pamela has chosen her ex-fiance Scott Nichols as her new partner.

Scott Nichols is a skating instructor at the local ice rink. He loves Brenda with all his heart and even proposed to her years ago. But when he left her standing at the altar because of a personal emergency, Brenda never forgave him and broke off their relationship. While Scott still suffers the sting of being scorned by his ex-fiance, he refuses to give up on love and hopes that Brenda will change her mind someday. 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. But can he soften Brenda's hardened heart, or will they only maintain a professional relationship?

Can I Have Joy in My Life? (Crucial Questions)

Title: Can I Have Joy in My Life? Binding: Paperback Author: R.C.Sproul Publisher: ReformationTrustPublishing

Remnant: Noah fiction series (Grace Finder Book 1)

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

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.

**********************

For Noah's sons completing the Ark has always been the first priority, yet they must also find wives. But where, when all the world is corrupt? There is Beth, their mother's handmaiden, who longs for Japheth but catches Shem's eye instead. There is also the slave girl, Shandai, nursed back from the brink of death and willing to seduce either one. Meanwhile for Ham there seems to be no one, and a life of inheriting only the scraps of his older brothers. Tension within the family and from without threatens to tear them apart, as Satan uses any means available to destroy God's remnant; vengeful enemies, the demon spawn Nephilim, and if possible, even one another.

An Easy Step-by-Step Guide on Hajj

Hajj is a blessed and wonderful journey which gives a person a sense of spiritual upliftment and a feeling of closeness to Allah. However, if one is not adequately prepared, in all aspects, ie. physically, mentally and spiritually, one can go through this once-in-a-lifetime journey without gaining the desired effect and worse still, one may return feeling somewhat unfulfilled. This book aims to prepare a person for this spiritual journey, from well before departure to the return home, leaving no stone unturned in explaining even the minor details, which many other Hajj books fail to deliver. An excellent endeavour to fully equip the soon-to-be Haaji as well as for those who are taking others for Hajj.

If I Should Die Before I Wake

It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning, great is Thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

If you need a testimony about God's grace, then If I Should Die Before I Wake will encourage your soul. Nothing happens in our lives by chance. If you need a miracle, God's got that too. Trust Him.

Has it been a while since you've had a testimony? Increase your prayer life, build your faith and walk in victory because without a test, there is no testimony.

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.

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.

Jesus: Vol One

Amos: Old Testament New European Christadelphian Commentary

A verse by verse exposition and commentary on the book of the prophet Amos, part of the New European Christadelphian commentary series.

The Church and the Money for Blessings Heretics

It's about time for the church to be reoriented when it comes to giving.

It's about time the money for blessings and seed-faith heretics be silenced.

It's about time those who make merchandise of the people of God, in the name of God and in the name of telling them to "sow" for earthly gain now are stopped.

It's about time those who stir up the greed in the people of God close their shop.

It's about time we put the fear of God in those who motivate the people to give based on fear.

It's about time those who steal from the church in the name of increase be shut down.

It's about time the grip of the thieves on the pulpit, the spiritual robbers, the liars, the deceived deceivers be loosed from the church.

This book spanning two parts, titled the Heretics and the Heresies, five chapters each is to remove the carpet from under the money for blessings heretics who had hitherto been having a field's day.

It's about time.

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.

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.

Habakkuk: Old Testament New European Christadelphian Commentary

Verse by verse exposition of the prophet Habakkuk by Duncan Heaster, part of the New European Christadelphian Commentary series.

3 Dimensions of the Word

In the world we live in, things more or less exist in three dimensions. All solids exist in three dimensions. The trinity, the Godhead, is also in three forms of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The regenerated man according to scriptures is a tripartite being having the spirit, the soul and the body.

The Word is Jesus Christ; he is the communication of God to humanity. The word can also describe the flow of God's knowledge, wisdom and understanding to men through the medium of verbal words.

God wants to speak to the three dimensions of man, so that all aspects of man's personhood are reached by God who loves us whole-heartedly.

Therefore just as God is in three dimensions, so does his word come in three forms to speak to the three parts of man- the spirit, soul and body.

Come along to explore and unveil these things in detail.

The Final Order: Proves Srila Prabhupada is ISKCON's Initiating Guru

THE BOOK THAT HAS THE GURUS ON THE RUN!

"The Final Order by Krishnakant Desai has been perhaps the most influential post-1977 publication in the Vaisnava world."

- HH Bhakti Vikasa Swami, ISKCON guru

Who should initiate disciples in the Hare Krishna Movement?

The spiritual purity and general prestige of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON, or the Hare Krishna Movement) has undergone a serious meltdown since the physical departure on November 14th, 1977 of its pure and saintly founder, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada. Most of the scandals that have rocked the Movement can be traced back to fairly blatant deviations from the instructions and pure standards given by Srila Prabhupada, the chief of which being his unauthorised displacement as the sole initiating (diksa) guru for ISKCON.

This particular deviation was highlighted in 1996 in the first edition of The Final Order which was sent to all ISKCON's leaders in a bid to help solve the Movement's problems. No ISKCON leader could now credibly claim to be oblivious to the legal documents, personally signed by Srila Prabhupada, that clearly set out his intention to remain the sole initiating guru for the global spiritual movement he founded. It is these legal documents that constitute the core of The Final Order.

Far from accepting the conclusions of The Final Order, ISKCON's Governing Body Commission (GBC) embarked on a systematic and sometimes brutal campaign of harassment, suppression and evasion. Surely it is no coincidence that most, if not all, of the members of the GBC are also initiating gurus?

This book will help the reader get to grips with the plain facts underlying one of the most fascinating and serious religious controversies of the modern age.

"The GBC should all be the instructor gurus. I am the initiator guru, and you should be the instructor guru by teaching what I am teaching and doing what I am doing."

- Srila Prabhupada Letter to Madhudvisa, 4/8/1975

"Yes, I am the spiritual master of this institution, and all the members of the Society, they're supposed to be my disciples. They follow the rules and regulations which I ask them to follow, and they are initiated by me spiritually."

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.

The Book Changer: The Life and Teachings of His Holiness Jayadvaita Swami

Examining the Examiner of Srila Prabhupada's Books

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, reverentially known as Srila Prabhupada, is the Founder-Acarya (spiritual master/ guru) of ISKCON (the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, or Hare Krishna movement). His Holiness Jayadvaita Swami, an ISKCON-authorised guru and Director of the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT), admits to having made large-scale changes (running into the thousands) to Srila Prabhupada's Bhagavad-gita As It Is:

"And if the integrity of the books is in doubt, then everything's in doubt. [...] We should all be concerned about the integrity of Prabhupada's books. [...] I've undertaken a really large-scale revision [...] How do you know we didn't mess up?"

- HH Jayadvaita Swami

Jayadvaita Swami is, therefore, a person who wields immense influence over the integrity of Srila Prabhupada's books, shaping what will be read as being the words of Srila Prabhupada for generations of devotees to come. Given this influence, it is only right and proper for us to examine Jayadvaita Swami's integrity. And that is exactly what this book does.

In particular, we examine the following claim made to establish Jayadvaita Swami's suitability for having undertaken this "really large-scale revision":

"Since Srila Prabhupada's departure, Jayadvaita Swami has taken part in no philosophical heresies (and has spoken out against several), he has maintained his spiritual vows, he has served Srila Prabhupada steadily."

- bbtedit.com

And this examination is done using only the words of Jayadvaita Swami

himself and those whom he accepts as bona fide authorities.

Call Of The Wolf: The Viking Chronicles book 1: Volume 1

"The air was filled with the groans of men whose thoughts were not of war but of home. In the final moment no one cared if lands and kings were victorious. The glimmer of a smiling child, the soft touch of a wife, the laughter heard around the hearth, and sounds of love were all that mattered. Steadily the light dimmed and the crushing sounds of war disappeared, until only darkness and silence remained." Vikings honored home and the land, community and friends above all else. Magnus, son of Vargr, wanted to see the world more than anything, but his dream collided with the ruthless spread of Charlemagne's kingdom. Two lives destined to change the course of history; the fate of families for generations to come.

Interesting Stories of Lord Vishnu

Roanoke: The Lost Colony: Volume 1 (The Keepers of the Ring)

In 1587, a group of colonists set sail from England, bound for Virginia, to establish the first English colony in the New World. They never made it to Virginia, but settled on Roanoke Island. John White, the colony's founder, sailed away, promising to return. By the time he did return, the colonists had vanished. Angela Hunt has pieced together historical records, folklore, and fact to create this compelling story of what most likely did happen to the colonists on Roanoke Island, while at the same time weaving a tale of God's mercy and grace.

God's Daughter: Volume 1 (Vikings of the New World Saga)

One Viking woman. One God. One legendary journey to North America. In the tenth century, when pagan holy women rule the Viking lands, Gudrid turns her back on her training as a seeress to embrace Christianity. Clinging to her faith, she joins her husband, Finn, on a voyage to North America. But even as Gudrid faces down murderous crewmen, raging sickness, and hostile natives, she realizes her greatest enemy is herself--and the secrets she hides might just tear her marriage apart. Almost five centuries before Columbus, Viking women sailed to North America with their husbands. God's Daughter, Book One in the Vikings of the New World Saga, offers an expansive yet intimate look into the world of Gudrid Thorbjarnardottir--daughter-in-law of Eirik the Red, and the first documented European woman to have a child in North America.

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.
