Book Excerpt :

Christopher and Hilda Talley were living what they thought was the American dream. They had two beautiful and healthy daughters, a comfortable home, cars, clothes, food on the table, a wonderful faith community, and two terrific jobs they loved. They played at life just as hard as they worked for their lifestyle, traveling in the United States and to foreign lands as often as possible. But in 1999, that all came crashing down. Hilda went from a happy and healthy person to someone who struggles for every breath she takes, after an inadequately trained pesticide tech came into her office. Two minutes after he left, she was fighting for her life. The chemical permanently damaged her lungs and vocal cords and led to two debilitating diseases: reactive airways dysfunction syndrome and vocal cord dysfunction. Their family life changed instantly. In God in the Midst of Thorns, Christopher and Hilda share their story, a story intertwined with the testament of God’s love and the power of Christian community, as they began their journey of learning to live a new normal. The Talleys discuss how, in their struggle for understanding, they both found a new and deeper relationship with God.

Book Short Summary:

Since it was first published, more than seven million people have been touched by the magic of The Christmas Box, a holiday classic that is as beloved in our time as A Christmas Carol was in Dickens's. When New York Times bestselling author Richard Paul Evans wrote The Christmas Box, he intended it as a private expression of love for his two young daughters, Jenna and Allyson. Though he often told them that he loved them, he didn't feel that they could ever really understand the depth of his feelings until they had experienced the joy of rearing their own children, and by that time their relationship would have changed forever. In writing The Christmas Box, he hoped that at some time in the future they would read the book and know of their father's love. As Evans began to write, he was amazed at the inspiration that flowed into his mind and heart. He completed the moving story of a widow and the young family who comes to live with her in less than six weeks, and bound twenty copies to give as Christmas presents to family and friends. In the following weeks, those twenty copies were shared and passed along from family to family, from friend to friend, and what began as a tale for two little girls became a message of miracles, hope, and healing for people throughout the world.

Book Short Summary:

Your Neighbor's Hymnal provides a winsome and thoughtful exploration of popular music, from rock to hip-hop to metal to soul, as a vital source contemporary culture continues to go to learn about faith, hope, and love. Where some Christians have kept their focus only on a hymnal found in their church or formed by the genre of Contemporary Christian Music, Keuss argues that your neighbor's hymnal is filled with great music that God is using and deserves a deeper listen. Offering forty songs spanning time and genres, each section includes a number of representative reflections on the history and artist that created the song, reflections on its lyrical content, and theological and biblical connections that will hopefully show some ways in which the song illustrates how your neighbor is hearing, seeking, and finding faith, hope, and love through popular music. This book can be approached in a number of ways. As an introduction to this stream of popular culture, the overviews and short introductions to each song provide a glossary useful in courses needing texts in theology and popular culture. For use with church groups, whether adult bible studies or youth groups, Your Neighbor's Hymnal provides points of reference for connecting key aspects of the Christian faith with illustrations readily available for discussion. For interested music listeners, the book will provide a means of giving voice to their own musings on faith. As with faith, good music is meant to be shared, and Your Neighbor's Hymnal offers a wonderful opportunity to do both.

Book Short Summary:

At 3:58 in the morning of June 5, 2002, Ed and Lois Smart awoke to the sound of their nine-year-old daughter Mary Katherine’s frightened voice. “She’s gone. Elizabeth is gone.” At first they thought she was having a bad dream about her older sister, but Mary Katherine’s seeming bad dream would quickly become their worst nightmare. Their daughter Elizabeth was gone. They were not sure why the media picked up on Elizabeth’s story, but after their daughter was kidnapped she became the whole world’s daughter. After nine months of a strange, hard, sometimes rewarding, but mostly painful journey, Elizabeth was miraculously returned to them. Just as millions throughout the world had grieved for her loss, now they celebrated her safe return. In Bringing Elizabeth Home, Ed and Lois share the pain of every parent’s worst fear: “What would I do if my child was taken from me?” They also share a story of great hope, strong faith, and trust in God. The Smart family had always been devoted to their Mormon faith, but through their terribly painful experience they gained a tremendous inner strength, which became the key to their survival. They write, “Having our daughter back home, in our arms, is nothing short of a miracle. It is the ultimate proof that God answers prayers. Granted, sometimes the answer is not the one we pray for, but still it remains an answer. We feel truly blessed that He answered our prayers the way we had hoped for, although we realize, regretfully, that this is not always the outcome in kidnapping cases. We have met so many families with missing children and we’ve seen how deep their pain goes . . . But what we hope to convey through our journey of faith and hope is that with a strong belief in God, all things are possible. Miracles do happen.” In the end, the Smarts’ story brings one point poignantly home--nothing is more important in this world than family. Not money. Not work. Not a fancy new car or an expensive, big house. Family, the prayers of so many friends and strangers, and trust in God are what got them through this experience--and having survived, they have no doubt that they can persevere in any situation as long as those three things are in their lives. Though their story is filled with many incredible twists and turns, they never lost focus on what was important: bringing Elizabeth home.

  • Pdf File: an-introduction-to-kierkegaard.pdf

Book Short Summary:

An Introduction to Kierkegaard is an accessible introduction to one of the most influential philosophers of the nineteenth century. Peter Vardy is an internationally known scholar with several bestselling titles. Søren Kierkegaard died in Copenhagen, Denmark, at the age of forty-two in 1855. His writings had little influence in his lifetime and after his death; even with the translation of some of his works into German, he was barely known. Yet today, he is internationally accepted as one of the world's greatest thinkers and is often considered the father of existentialism. The purposes of this book are very similar to Kierkegaard's own purposes, namely: • to help you think through the meaning and purpose of your life and what Christianity means today • to reintroduce Christianity into a world that has largely forgotten what the word means • to show the limitation of reason and modern philosophy Here, Peter Vardy makes Kierkegaard's often complex and difficult thinking accessible to a wide audience. He sketches a few of the central themes of Kierkegaard's thought and gives the reader a feeling for the way he approaches problems and some sense of the breadth of his work. This revised and expanded edition is an ideal introduction to Kierkegaard for both students and the general reader.

Book Short Summary:

For readers of Karen Armstrong and Kathleen Norris comes a powerful, unforgettable spiritual autobiography. An Unquenchable Thirst is the story of Mary Johnson's twenty years as a Missionary of Charity — working alongside Mother Teresa in service to the world's poor — and a fascinating depiction of the daily struggle to live a life of religious service. At 17, Johnson experienced her calling when she saw a photo of Mother Teresa on the cover of Time. Eighteen months later she found herself in religious training in a South Bronx convent. This boisterous, independent-minded teenager adapted, eventually, to the austere life of poverty and devotion, but faced daily the struggles of any young woman — the same desires for love and connection and meaning and identity. After 20 years, Johnson left the order and has since left the church, but the story of this complicated, extraordinary woman will speak to atheists and true believers alike.

Like your dad dying and you and I ending up with a genetic disorder. Muscle biopsies, spinal taps, surgeries, you know. Crazy stuff happened. He looks my way only somewhat understanding. His seventeen-year-old, senior-in-high-school self tries on my explanation, but it doesnt quite fit. He cant give in so why should I? He continues up the stairs and I stand alone. Alone with the reality that the hard stuff is winning. That I caved under the pressure. That my tall, blond-haired, blue-eyed son knows who I was, compared to who I am.

Book Short Summary:

Since the arrival of the Puritans, various religious groups, including Quakers, Jews, Catholics, and Protestant sects, have migrated to the United States. The role of religion in motivating their migration and shaping their settlement experiences has been well documented. What has not been recorded is the contemporary story of how migrants from Mexico and Central America rely on religion—their clergy, faith, cultural expressions, and everyday religious practices—to endure the undocumented journey. At a time when anti-immigrant feeling is rising among the American public and when immigration is often cast in economic or deviant terms, Migration Miracle humanizes the controversy by exploring the harsh realities of the migrants’ desperate journeys. Drawing on over 300 interviews with men, women, and children, Jacqueline Hagan focuses on an unexplored dimension of the migration undertaking—the role of religion and faith in surviving the journey. Each year hundreds of thousands of migrants risk their lives to cross the border into the United States, yet until now, few scholars have sought migrants’ own accounts of their experiences.

Book Short Summary:

Genesis: The King Promised is the culmination of thirty years of study into the Bible and into many varied and diverse scientific disciplines, all brought together to provide this expositional commentary on the book of Genesis. You will find answers to many of your questions pertaining to Genesis by understanding the cultural influences and the history of the times surrounding this book of origins. By looking at the science and the latest in scholarship regarding the translation of the original languages, while incorporating all of the sciences that are applicable, we can now see the most complete picture of the truths that are captured in Genesis. Included are the apologetic tools that will enable you to defend your faith using up to date science that supports the Biblical account of creation, including the issues of the speed of light, the flood, and other areas that have been questioned in times past. In Genesis: The King Promised, you will see an explanation of who and what were the persons known as the nephilim, what part they played in the history of the earliest civilization before and after the flood, and whether they still exist today. Genesis: The King Promised cannot provide the answers to all of your questions regarding the beginnings of our world—as no single book could. But by including theology, history, cultural studies, science, and linguistics, this work gives a clearer look at this wondrous book—the Bible.

Book Short Summary:

Bestselling author and renowned family counselor Michael Gurian teaches you how to embrace aging and life after fifty through this spiritual and comprehensive guide. The topic of aging after fifty is frequently only discussed in terms of health—what are the physical symptoms that come with advanced age, and what can we do about them? The Wonder of Aging, however, aims to look at aging in a new way—as something that is positive, showing how miraculous our second half of life can be. Gurian divides life after fifty into four stages: Stage 1: The Age of Transformation. This is the stage of life from the late forties to approximately sixty. Stage 2: The Age of Distinction. This stage of life lasts from approximately sixty to seventy-five. Stage 3: The Age of Completion. This stage involves completing our life-journey, both together (if we are still coupled) and alone, if our spouse has passed on or if we are divorced. He developed these stages in response to both scientific and anthropological information, and in response to the needs of his clients, who sought help in understanding where they were and what to expect in the second half of life. With updated research and anecdotes to help you discover a new paradigm for aging, you can understand how aging affects you physically, mentally, relationally, and spiritually, and how to celebrate these changes holistically and healthfully.

Book Short Summary:

Life is a journey that is shaped by the choices we make to handle every situation. This is an essential volume for each one of those eager for a transformation through self-discovery. It is a journey from despair to hope, from doubt to faith, and promises to instil the confidence that helps manifest the seemingly impossible. It starts the moment we begin to believe that we have a choice in our life, that we are responsible for every action or inaction. Integral Chakra Psychology helps us decipher the reasons that shape our choices in life. For the author, the questions that shaped this volume were the ones that emerged while finding a way out of personal struggles or those of his counselees. The voyage took him in various directions and the answers he got were obtained only after he was able to integrate occidental psychology with oriental world view, materialism with spirituality, theism with atheism and spiritual quotient with emotional quotient. This volume thus is an amalgamation of each and every theory that could possibly have been proposed till date, be it at the individual, group or religious level. Be amazed at all that goes behind each unconscious choice and life decision and learn to mould them according to your goals and achievements.

An event of theological "time-travel" back to the beginning, back to the biblical creation story in Genesis chapters 1-3. We will learn some Hebraic details about a larger-than-life seven-day Messianic redemption plan. We will encounter a multi-dimensional world of reality and metaphor. We will come to learn that the biblical creation story is a detailed Hebraic narrative about the Creation referred to in the Hebrew text of Exodus 3:14-15 as יהוה אלהים (YHVH Elohim) and his deep desire for a relationship with each of us; that after all the creation was plunged into a deep spiritual darkness, he (the Creator named in Exodus 3:14-15) was the one that came to set us free from our spiritual captivity because we had no power to set ourselves free. Genesis chapters 1-3 is an extraordinary historical riches-to-rags-to-riches story unlike anything that one can even begin to imagine. Learn Hebraic definitions for faith, hope, love, holiness, heaven, earth, and other theological ideas often lost in translation. Learn about the biblical functions of male and female. Learn the Hebraic truth and context behind Genesis 3:16, "Your desire shall be for your husband and he shall rule over you." Learn about the "marriage" between the Serpent and Eve. Learn Hebraic principles behind giving and receiving to build strong relationships. Learn about a "High Priest" cherub who rebelled in the throne-room of Heaven and morphed to become the Serpent (the Satan) of the Bible. Meet the Word, the Son of Elohim (God) in Heaven. Meet the Word, the Son of Elohim (God) on Earth. Discover the two Genesis creations of man (Day 3 and Day 6) and learn why Yeshua (Jesus) had to resurrect on the Third Day. Discover the Hebraic meaning of the Law of Sin and Death. Learn about DNA quantum entanglement and the second death of Genesis 2:17. Discover the background that drives Paul's theology about the "Works of the Law" and "Under the Law" in the New Testament Book of Galatians.
