Book Short Summary:

We tend to look to the New Testament to tell us about Jesus, yet it was the Old Testament about which Jesus said, “the Scriptures point to me!” In The One Year Book of Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament, Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie takes readers from Genesis through Malachi, shining the light of Christ on the promise of a descendent who will put an end to the curse of sin; the story of a father who offers up his son as a sacrifice; the symbol of a temple where people can meet with God; the prophecy of a servant who will suffer; the person of a king who will rule with righteousness—and so much more. Day by day throughout the year, readers will see the beauty of Christ in fresh new ways, creating a deeper understanding and appreciation for who Jesus is and what he accomplished through his Cross and Resurrection.

Book Short Summary:

This retrospective journey will bring every sense of emotions to your life, beginning from childhood to the making of the man. You are being invited into a one of a kind adventure which will captivate your attention from the instant you begin to absorb the words. I have put down all guards in recanting my life experiences. Throughout these pages, you will encounter a looking glass into personal and intimate pieces of history that characterizes the making of the man. These multifaceted dynamics have played key in the molding of my life and will take you into a place where the apparent contradictions will make sense; where the oxymoronic will be logical. You will be confronted with the chilling and the grotesque, followed immediately by empathy and self-identification. Human needs are universal-love, security, belonging, acceptance and the need to achieve, you will find it all here. This candor of my life will take you through a roller coaster of emotions as I share my innermost truths confronting every major stumbling block in my life. After you read this, you will never see the world the same.

Book Short Summary:

Available for the first time as a traditional paperback, this revised and updated edition contains new and archival interviews with those closest to Chris Bell and the Big Star circle: their friends, family, former bandmates—even fans, exes, classmates, and coworkers. “Bell’s and Big Star’s existence was short, but the wealth of stories and quotes here provides a healthy sustenance for the truth seekers. A top-notch biography.” —San Francisco Book Review The varied cast of voices—many from the band’s hometown of Memphis—comprises all the members of Big Star, including Chris Bell, the iconic Alex Chilton, Andy Hummel, and Jody Stephens. In the following decades after its 1975 breakup, the obscure group somehow reached and inspired some of rock’s most important bands, including R.E.M., the Replacements, Yo La Tengo, Teenage Fanclub, Beck, and Wilco. With Chris Bell at the center of the Big Star universe, this book carefully reveals the production of the band’s masterful 1972 debut LP, #1 Record, for Ardent/Stax Records. Despite stellar reviews, the record suffered abysmal sales. Soon after, toxic personality conflicts and turmoil tore the band apart while Bell battled drug abuse and depression. There Was A Light then delves into Big Star’s second and third albums, while recounting Bell’s second act as a struggling solo musician and born-again Christian. During several trips to Europe, he produced ambitious recordings and pitched himself to record labels—even crossing paths with Paul McCartney. From this fertile era arose Bell’s lone solo album, the posthumously released I Am the Cosmos—his swan song and masterpiece. There Was A Light details the pop culture phenomenon that made Big Star legendary and divulges how its staunch fanbase saved the band from obscurity. “... an encyclopedic compendium…illuminating Bell’s life from a thousand angles.” —Memphis Flyer

Book Short Summary:

It’s time to Discover Your True Worth. Join Lindsay Roberts as she invites you to step into your God-given purpose and become all that He has called you to be. Before his death, Oral Roberts commissioned his daughter-in-law Lindsay with what he believed to be a mandate from God: Lindsay was called to help women discover who they are in Christ, establish them in their powerful identity in Him, and help them become the women God created them to be—women of true worth. Since that day, Lindsay has made it her mission to share that powerful message with women around the world. She believes that as women, we must discover who we are and what we’re made of in order to move forward in all God wants us to become—in business, in the church, in our families, in our communities, and beyond. Within the pages of Discover Your True Worth, Lindsay will empower you to: Embrace God’s grace to turn the pain of your past into the stepping stones of your future Welcome your God-given calling with confidence and courage Become a force for God and play a part in preparing His kingdom here on earth This book is for any woman who has ever feared, fallen, failed, prayed, hoped, loved, lost, been discouraged, risked a dream, or wondered if she matters. Are you ready to Discover Your True Worth? Praise for Discover Your True Worth: “I see the message in Discover Your True Worth as a similar handbook [to Woman, Thou Art Loosed], one that will guide women who are on the journey to becoming all that God created them to be and to making a difference in every facet of life and every sphere of influence.” —Bishop T.D. Jakes, New York Times bestselling author “As a child of God, we must understand our worth. Lindsay encourages us to discover who we are, who we are made in the image of, and what our useful purpose is! So many of us, myself included, have struggled to find our place in the ‘big scheme of things’ because we get sidetracked by our failures and mistakes. We think there’s no way God could use a broken vessel like me in His mighty work. That’s what Lindsay shows us: His power is made perfect in our weakness, misfortunes, mistakes, and mishaps.” —Miss Kay Robertson, matriarch of the Robertson family, author, speaker, flawed but favored

Book Short Summary:

Chapter Seven New and Improved God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. and there was evening, and there was morning--the sixth day. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. and God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. Genesis 2: 1-3Though you cannot know the totality of it, there are several conclusions you can draw from Scripture that give clues to understanding the Will of God:o God's Will is irrefutable. o God's Will is good. o God's Will is acceptable. o God's Will is perfect. o God's Will is already done. in order to gain insight into this you must follow the instructions of Jesus and look beyond the appearances to what is real. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is -- his good, pleasing and perfect will. - Romans 12:2To begin to discover what God's will for you is, let us go all the way back to the beginning. in Genesis the first chapter you find God busy preparing a place for you. On the First Day God created heaven & earth, and day & night (a unity of opposites which exists throughout all creation). in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. and God said, Let there be light, and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light day, and the darkness he called night. and there was evening, and there was morning--the first day. - Genesis 1: 1-5Light is wisdom; and the first day's work is the calling of light or wisdom into expression. Light represents intelligence, and darkness represents undeveloped capacity. Symbolically these are day and night. - Charles Fillmore, Mysteries of Genesis P.14On the Second Day God created the firmament, the expanse of sky, to separate the waters above (aspiration) from the waters below (desire). and God said, Let there be an expanse [firmament] between the waters to separate water from water. So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. and it was so. God called the expanse sky. and there was evening, and there was morning--the second day. - Genesis 1: 6-8The second step in creation is the development of faith or the firmament. the waters represent the un-established elements of the mind. ...unexpressed possibilities in mind. There must be a firm starting point or foundation established. This foundation or firmament is faith moving upon the unformed capacities of Spirit consciousness. the divine Logos--God as creative power--gives forth the edict Let there be a firmament. the first step or day in creation involves light or understanding, and the second step, faith in the knowing quality of mind. Mysteries of Genesis P.16 -17On the Third Day God divided the waters below into dry land and seas (the mineral kingdom) as a provision for the growth of the vegetable kingdom. and the land produced vegetation in bountiful supply, all with the means of reproducing and continuing the creation process. and God said, Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear. and it was so. God called the dry ground land, and the gathered waters he called seas. and God saw that it was good. Then God said, Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds. and it was so. the land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. and God saw that it was good. and there was evening, and there was morning--the third day.- Genesis 1: 9-13The third step in creation is the beginning of the formative activity of the mind called imagination. This gathers the waters . . . together unto one place so that the dry land appears. Then the imagination begins a great multiplication of forms and shapes in the mind. Mysteries of Genesis P.18On the Fourth Day God created the sun (the greater light) the moon (the lesser light) and the stars. Thus was provided a source of Light and energy. All of this in preparation for what is to come next. and God said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth. and it was so. God made two great lights--the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. and God saw that it was good. and there was evening, and there was morning--the fourth day. - Genesis 1: 14-19The fourth step in creation is the development of the two great lights, the will and the understanding, or the sun (the spiritual I AM) and the moon (the intellect). These are but reflectors of the true light; for God had said, Let there be light: and there was light--before the sun and the moon were created. the firmament of heaven is the consciousness of Truth that has been formulated and established. Mysteries of Genesis P.19;On the Fifth Day the animal kingdom emerges as God calls forth the creatures of the sea and sky to feed upon the provisions of the sea and land. They too are blessed with all that is necessary to perpetuate creation as God commands them to be fruitful and multiply. and God said, Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky. So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. and God saw that it was good. God blessed them and said, Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth. and there was evening, and there was morning--the fifth day. - Genesis 1: 20-23The fifth step in creation is the bringing forth of sensation and discrimination. the creatures are thoughts. the birds . . . in the open firmament of heaven are ideas approaching spiritual understanding. Water represents the unformed substance of life, always present as a fecundating element in which ideas (living creatures) increase and multiply, just as the earth produces a crop when sown with seed. the birds represent the liberated thoughts or ideas of mind (heavens). Mysteries of Genesis P.22On the Sixth Day we see calling forth the creatures of the land to further develop the animal kingdom. and God said, Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind. and it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. and God saw that it was good. Genesis 1: 24-25On the sixth day of creation ideas of life are set into activity. Cattle represent ideas of strength established in substance. Creeping things represent ideas of life that are more subtle in their expression, approaching closer to the realm of sense. They are the micro-organisms. the beasts stand for the free energies of life that relate themselves to sensation. Divine ideas are always instantly set into activity: and it was so. Mysteries of Genesis P.24Having created all of these things as a provision for God's final creati

Book Short Summary:

Both suspenseful and deeply moving, Carolina Moonset is an engrossing novel about family, memories both golden and terrible, and secrets too dangerous to stay hidden forever, from New York Times bestselling and Emmy Award-winning author, Matt Goldman. Joey Green has returned to Beaufort, South Carolina, with its palmettos and shrimp boats, to look after his ailing father, who is succumbing to dementia, while his overstressed mother takes a break. Marshall Green’s short-term memory has all but evaporated, but, as if in compensation, his oldest memories are more vivid than ever. His mind keeps slipping backwards in time, retreating into long-ago yesterdays of growing up in Beaufort as a boy. At first this seems like a blessing of sorts, with the past providing a refuge from a shrinking future, but Joey grows increasingly anxious as his father’s hallucinatory arguments with figures from his youth begin to hint at deadly secrets, scandals, and suspicions long buried and forgotten. Resurfacing from decades past are mysteries that still have the power to shatter lives—and change everything Joey thought he knew. Especially when a new murder brings the police to his door...

Book Short Summary:

A self-described failed filmmaker falls obsessively in love with her theorist-husband's colleague: a manifesto for a new kind of feminism and the power of first-person narration. In I Love Dick, published in 1997, Chris Kraus, author of Aliens & Anorexia, Torpor, and Video Green, boldly tore away the veil that separates fiction from reality and privacy from self-expression. It's no wonder that I Love Dick instantly elicited violent controversies and attracted a host of passionate admirers. The story is gripping enough: in 1994 a married, failed independent filmmaker, turning forty, falls in love with a well-known theorist and endeavors to seduce him with the help of her husband. But when the theorist refuses to answer her letters, the husband and wife continue the correspondence for each other instead, imagining the fling the wife wishes to have with Dick. What follows is a breathless pursuit that takes the woman across America and away from her husband and far beyond her original infatuation into a discovery of the transformative power of first person narrative. I Love Dick is a manifesto for a new kind of feminist who isn't afraid to burn through her own narcissism in order to assume responsibility for herself and for all the injustice in world and it's a book you won't put down until the author's final, heroic acts of self-revelation and transformation.

Book Short Summary:

THE BOOK OF GENESIS is the key to the Bible. In the New Testament it is quoted twenty-seven times literally and thirty-eight times substantially. It tells in a very few words how God first imaged man and the universe and then turned the development over to Jehovah, who has been in a process of manifestation for ages and aeons. The "Five Books of Moses," of which Genesis is the first, have always been credited to Moses, but that he was the author seems doubtful in the face of the many stories of creation found in the legends and hieroglyphs of ancient Egypt, Chaldea, and other nations that are almost identical with those of Genesis. It would thus seem that Moses edited the legends of the ages and compiled them into an allegorical history of creation. The truths in this book will be revealed to the reader through his own spiritual unfoldment. Spiritual things are spiritually discerned. The spiritual revelations that you seem to get from books and teachers already existed as submerged experiences in your own soul. The essential truths have been worked out in this or previous incarnations, and when you were reminded of the buried idea it blazed forth as a light from without. So all that you are or ever will be must come from your own spiritual achievements.

Book Short Summary:

“If you read only one book about democracy, The Turnaway Study should be it. Why? Because without the power to make decisions about our own bodies, there is no democracy.” —Gloria Steinem The “remarkable” (The New Yorker) landmark study of the consequences on women’s lives—emotional, physical, financial, professional, personal, and psychological—of receiving versus being denied an abortion that “should be required reading for every judge, member of Congress, and candidate for office—as well as anyone who hopes to better understand this complex and important issue” (Cecile Richards). What happens when a woman seeking an abortion is turned away? To answer this question, Diana Greene Foster assembled a team of scientists—psychologists, epidemiologists, demographers, nurses, physicians, economists, sociologists, and public health researchers—to conduct a ten-year study. They followed a thousand women from across America, some of whom received abortions, some of whom were turned away. Now, for the first time, Dr. Foster presents the results of this landmark study in one extraordinary, groundbreaking book. Judges, politicians, and pro-life advocates routinely defend their anti-abortion stance by claiming that abortion is physically risky and leads to depression and remorse. Dr. Foster’s data proves the opposite to be true. Foster documents the outcomes for women who received and were denied an abortion, analyzing the impact on their mental and physical health, their careers, their romantic relationships, and their other children, if they have them. Women who received an abortion were better off by almost every measure than women who did not, and five years after they receive an abortion, 99 percent of women do not regret it. As the national debate around abortion intensifies, The Turnaway Study offers the first thorough, data-driven examination of the negative consequences for women who cannot get abortions and provides incontrovertible evidence to refute the claim that abortion harms women. Interwoven with the study findings are ten “engaging, in-depth” (Ms. Magazine) first-person narratives. Candid, intimate, and deeply revealing, they bring to life the women and the stories behind the science. Revelatory, essential, and “particularly relevant now” (HuffPost), this is a must-read for anyone who cares about the impact of abortion and abortion restrictions on people’s lives.

Book Short Summary:

A riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making—from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAACP IMAGE AWARD NOMINEE • NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Washington Post • Jennifer Szalai, The New York Times • NPR • The Guardian • Marie Claire In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil. Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated the power of grassroots activism to the watershed night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation’s highest office. Reflecting on the presidency, he offers a unique and thoughtful exploration of both the awesome reach and the limits of presidential power, as well as singular insights into the dynamics of U.S. partisan politics and international diplomacy. Obama brings readers inside the Oval Office and the White House Situation Room, and to Moscow, Cairo, Beijing, and points beyond. We are privy to his thoughts as he assembles his cabinet, wrestles with a global financial crisis, takes the measure of Vladimir Putin, overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds to secure passage of the Affordable Care Act, clashes with generals about U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, tackles Wall Street reform, responds to the devastating Deepwater Horizon blowout, and authorizes Operation Neptune’s Spear, which leads to the death of Osama bin Laden. A Promised Land is extraordinarily intimate and introspective—the story of one man’s bet with history, the faith of a community organizer tested on the world stage. Obama is candid about the balancing act of running for office as a Black American, bearing the expectations of a generation buoyed by messages of “hope and change,” and meeting the moral challenges of high-stakes decision-making. He is frank about the forces that opposed him at home and abroad, open about how living in the White House affected his wife and daughters, and unafraid to reveal self-doubt and disappointment. Yet he never wavers from his belief that inside the great, ongoing American experiment, progress is always possible. This beautifully written and powerful book captures Barack Obama’s conviction that democracy is not a gift from on high but something founded on empathy and common understanding and built together, day by day.

Book Short Summary:

In this provocative book, evolutionist and evangelical Christian Denis O. Lamoureux proposes an approach to origins that moves beyond the evolution-versus-creation debate. Arguing for an intimate relationship between the Book of God's Words and the Book of God's Works, he presents evolutionary creation--a position that asserts that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit created the universe and life through an ordained and sustained evolutionary process. This view of origins affirms intelligent design and the belief that beauty, complexity, and functionality in nature reflect the mind of God. Lamoureux also challenges the popular Christian assumption that the Holy Spirit revealed scientific and historical facts in the opening chapters of the Bible. He contends that Scripture features an ancient understanding of origins that functions as a vessel to deliver inerrant and infallible messages of faith. Lamoureux shares his personal story and his struggle in coming to terms with evolution and Christianity. Like many, he lost his boyhood faith at university in classes on evolutionary biology. After graduation, he experienced a born-again conversion and then embraced belief in a literal six-day creation. Graduate school training at the doctoral level in both theology and biology led him to the conclusion that God created the world through evolution. Lamoureux closes with the two most important issues in the origins controversy--the pastoral and pedagogical implications. How should churches approach this volatile topic? And what should Christians teach their children about origins?

Book Short Summary:

The creation story stands as one of the most famous and familiar in Scripture. But, says best-selling author Robert Farrar Capon, most of us misconstrue it. The reason? We have fallen into the habit of reading Genesis the way we read all of Scripture - as a manual of religious instructions. To break this (bad) habit, Capon here offers a whimsical yet wonderfully fruitful approach - watching the Bible as a historical movie whose director is God. Though Capon does have fun with this concept, he's very serious about its liberating effects. "When you watch a movie," he says, "you never ask questions about whether the events depicted actually happened. Instead, you accept the history the director shows you on the screen." And, as Capon points out, we typically suspend judgment of a film until we've seen all of it, letting later scenes inform and enrich earlier ones. That, he says, is exactly how we need to see Genesis - as just the beginning of the whole movie of Scripture. Using this novel approach in "Genesis, the Movie," Capon develops a commentary of theological scope and depth on the first three chapters of Genesis. He gives every verse as it appears in the Hebrew, the Septuagint, and the Vulgate, as well as in the KJV, RSV, and NRSV versions of the Bible. Making extensive use of Augustine's commentary on Genesis in his "Confessions" and "De Genesi ad Litteram," Capon also shows the interpretive freedom with which the church's fathers and mothers approached Scripture. This book is as much Capon the charming writer-teacher as it is Capon the scholar, characterized as it is by the conversational, entertaining style for which Capon is so well known. Enriched by Capon's signature wit, imaginative wisdom, and broad-ranging engagement of saints, poets, and religious thinkers across the centuries, "Genesis, the Movie" presents a remarkable new look at Scripture that will delight and challenge its many readers.

Book Short Summary:

Misthological Models Part 5 continues the author’s exploration of the nature of the outer darkness in relation to New Jerusalem. An examination of New Jerusalem in the historical past and prehistorical past is made in conjunction with theories of pre-Adamic cities to explain how Abraham could be searching for a Heavenly City that existed from before the foundation of the world. Present and future implications regarding New Jerusalem are also explored. Discussions of the existence of both God and the City in their own spacetimes are also evaluated. Principle improvements over The Outer Darkness in the present book include the following: (1) the juxtaposition of a celestial outer darkness for those in celestial bodies as opposed to a terrestrial outer darkness for those in terrestrial bodies; (2) scriptural affirmation that Jesus in His glorified body can be in multiple places at one time and thus as omnipresent as He wishes to be in the fullest sense of the word; (3) inferences that the Bride can be semi-omnipresent; (4) the plausible inference that Jesus is a 7D being with a 6D Bride; (5) the speculation that the Heavenly City might be found in 5D, 4D, and 3D spacetime continuums with hierarchical degrees of access, spatiality, and temporality; (6) the pragmatic suggestion that the 3D City will be replicated; (7) a proposal as to why the gates of the replicated Celestial City correspond to terrestrial access and direction; (8) the proposition that faithful 3D smortals can become 4D immortals who assist in the commerce of the replicated 3D Cities and serve as assistant rulers over other smortals; (9) the broadening of smortals to include select Jews during the tribulational; (10) the postulation that the Bride will be able to create universes; (11) spatial and temporal visualizations for the higher degree of dimensionality for Lord and Bride; (12) a hypothesis for why the Satanic rebellion at the end of the millennium is allowed.
