Book Excerpt :

DIV This landmark book looks at what it means to be a multiracial couple in the United States today. According to Our Hearts begins with a look back at a 1925 case in which a two-month marriage ends with a man suing his wife for misrepresentation of her race, and shows how our society has yet to come to terms with interracial marriage. Angela Onwuachi-Willig examines the issue by drawing from a variety of sources, including her own experiences. She argues that housing law, family law, and employment law fail, in important ways, to protect multiracial couples. In a society in which marriage is used to give, withhold, and take away status—in the workplace and elsewhere—she says interracial couples are at a disadvantage, which is only exacerbated by current law. /div

This book is exclusively written on the foundation of sacred books called Bible and on the experience of many good and great people, for man who was created for hard work, accordingly to its given gift calls talent. (1Co. 12:4) Which is precisely given accordingly to everybody's abilities. (1Co. 12:7). To do good work and to become son of living God (Jn. 15:15) and eventually on the end to become god, (Ps. 82:6) when come time to give its record and hear; well done my faithful son, enter into my rest. In this book it is not my intention to teach anyone but only to incite everyone to think about, to speak about and to recommend in order improving life for entire humanity independent, of race, color, ethnicity, languages or religion for everyone to become in agreement according to its given gift, which is powerful Spirit of love, what we call talent. It is not my idea that proves that, but myriad of humans as modern prophets that by their work witnessed for real life directed by the powerful Spirit of love call talent is only one way only one direction toward goodness for entire humanity, which pleases only One whom we call Great Creator. We may call it as universal secular religion or secular ideology as you wish which is universal and founded on free gift, given talent and responsibility while divine religion is religion of individuals gathered in the congregation founded on faith and obedience, while both are blessed with the power of love. It is true and is easy to understand that life that is directed by the given talent as a life purpose for the love toward One who sent you to do it and for devoted love for entire humanity as a fulfillment of first law to love your Great Creator and not only your neighbor but entire humanity to be like sun that shine from above for all and rain that comes for above for all as a HEAVENLY WISDOM An end I would like to hear from you about your opinion and suggestion in order to further improve that given program suggested from many and for goodness for entire humanity.

  • Pdf File: spectacular-sins.pdf

Book Short Summary:

John Piper delivers powerful biblical reassurances to bolster readers' trust in the sovereignty of God and the supremacy of Christ when evil and tragedy come. If God governs the sinful acts of men, then does the devastation caused by those terrorists, dictators, murderers, cheats, and abusers discredit Jesus' words: "All authority in heaven and earth belongs to me"? When heart-rending news comes of the latest accident, illness, or natural disaster, can we really believe that in Jesus, "all things hold together"? Though God has not answered all of our questions about sin and suffering, there are things he wants us to know, things he declares in his Word-such as what's at stake in the "spectacular" sins of others and the horrible tragedies of this life; their global purpose, both historically and today; and what these events say to us personally. As John Piper works through these biblical truths, this book will bolster readers' trust in the utter sovereignty of God such that they'll be less timid in their witness and less afraid of whatever may come. It is also a joy-infused declaration that because everything occurs through Christ and for Christ and his glory, they are forever secure in him.

Book Short Summary:

In the Lord’s recovery during the past five hundred years the church’s knowledge of the Lord and His truth has been continually progressing. This monumental and classical work by Brother Witness Lee builds upon and is a further development of all that the Lord has revealed to His church in the past centuries. It is filled with the revelation concerning the processed Triune God, the living Christ, the life-giving Spirit, the experience of life, and the definition and practice of the church. In this set Brother Lee has kept three basic principles that should rule and govern every believer in their interpretation, development, and expounding of the truths contained in the Scriptures. The first principle is that of the Triune God dispensing Himself into His chosen and redeemed people; the second principle is that we should interpret, develop, and expound the truths contained in the Bible with Christ for the church; and the third governing principle is Christ, the Spirit, life, and the church. No other study or exposition of the New Testament conveys the life nourishment or ushers the reader into the divine revelation of God’s holy Word according to His New Testament economy as this one does.

Book Short Summary:

Looking for God in all the wrong places? Then read this book. Its an in depth journey through the Holy Scriptures of the bible to guide you through Gods pathway of salvation which he has provided for human life on this earth. In the world of today, there are some many avenues and paths to choose in life. God has given man the freedom to choose his own destiny, but in that freedom he has asked that we choose wisely making right choices. What is the right choice in life? This book is here to help answer that question. The bible says the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; therefore, having godly fear is the first wise path that anyone can choose. Why is it wise to fear God? It is wise because once we begin to give God his due respect as the creator of life, is where we begin our journey toward discovering every other right and wise pathway life has to offer, which leads to true salvation and in the end eternal life. This book is a journey through the Holy Scriptures of the bible in finding that right path to help clear up the fog in the minds of so many looking to know and understand what is true and what is right. God has already laid the foundation by the scriptures that we may have the tools and the ability to build a life of success according to the Master who created this great world in which we live; and who knows best. If you have a true desire to understand the scriptures and want to know what God can do in your life; if you are confused about the bible and religion but hope to find the pathway leading to true salvation; then read this book. Is is here to give good education on biblical truths. And as you read, keep the bible handy: because this book is designed so that as you read it, you will need the bible for reference; in hopes that you might find the true pathway to paradise.

Book Short Summary:

"Every good giving and every perfect gift is from on high, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning" (James 1:17). This verse conveys a powerful image of God as the source and referent of all beauty. This book demonstrates how the experience of beauty is related to our inherent longing for the God who is reflected in such moments. Richly informed by Junius Johnson's expertise on Bonaventure and von Balthasar, the book offers a robust, full-orbed theology of beauty, showing how it has functioned as a theological concept from biblical times to the present day.

It’s not academic but rather presents an easy reading, practical and friendly commentary. The authors of Exalting Jesus in Psalms, Volume 2, Psalms 51-100 are Matt Mason, David Platt, and Jim Shaddix.

"Someone to love me." That's all she wanted--all anyone really wants. We are all addicts, "sinaholics," says the author, trying to fill with various addictions a gaping void in our hearts designed for God. Take Mary Magdalene. She was a prosperous prostitute, but her life was one sad, sordid story--until she met Someone who loved her with a pure, unconditional love. Ever afterward the shame of her past was eclipsed by her absolute devotion to the One who set her free.

Book Short Summary:

Many commentators and users of the Bible have, over the centuries and up to the present day, used the Bible to argue that animals have no rights, that they were put on this earth for our use, and that we have no obligations to them. In his cogent, honest, and fully researched and referenced work, The Dominion of Love, Norm Phelps attempts to encourage all who revere the Bible as holy scripture to open their hearts to the suffering that we inflict upon our nonhuman neighbors. He shows that the right of animals not to be imprisoned, harmed, and killed for our benefit flows naturally from the Bible's message of love and compassion and argues that this is the message of the Bible's most important passages dealing with our relationship to animals. He further responds to the defenses of animal exploitation that are often made based on the Bible. Beautifully written, The Dominion of Love is an essential addition to a growing body of literature that argues for a compassionate and non-exploitative reading of Holy Scripture.

Book Short Summary:

"My mommy didn't carry me in her tummy, she carried me in her heart." Bailey, a 5-years old who was adopted from China. Her story is included in this book. According to People magazine, parents from all over the country seek adoption expert and Worldwide Orphans Foundation founder Dr. Jane Aronson’s help “as if consulting a master detective.” Angelina Jolie praised Dr. Aronson’s “drive and ambition to help children dream” (Elle). Indeed, over the course of the past three decades, Dr. Aronson has touched the lives of thousands of adopted children from around the world and in this inspiring book she presents moving first-person testimonies from parents (and a few children themselves) whose lives have been blessed by adoption. Divided into thematic sections—such as "The Decision," "The Journey," and "The Moment We Met")—each prefaced by Dr. Aronson, this book introduces readers to Claude Knobler, a writer from Los Angeles whose journey to Ethiopia to adopt his son led to an unexpectedly moving encounter with the boy’s courageous birthmother; actor Mary Louise-Parker whose older adopted son’s bond with her newly adopted baby daughter was deep and unwavering from the instant the two children met; and Lynn Danzker, an entrepreneur who set off alone to adopt her son, Cole, and in the process, met and married her husband. The authors of these testimonies range from doctors to filmmakers, from financial consultants to celebrities—all of them bound by their moving and transformative experience as adoptive parents.

Book Short Summary:

The Parker Society was the London-based Anglican society that printed in fifty-four volumes the works of the leading English Reformers of the sixteenth century. It was formed in 1840 and disbanded in 1855 when its work was completed. Named after Matthew Parker -- the first Elizabethan Archbishop of Canterbury, who was known as a great collector of books -- the stimulus for the foundation of the society was provided by the Tractarian movement, led by John Henry Newman and Edward B. Pusey. Some members of this movement spoke disparagingly of the English Reformation, and so some members of the Church of England felt the need to make available in an attractive form the works of the leaders of that Reformation.

Book Short Summary:

Not every lie sounds untrue. Some lies are repeated so often they seem to be common sense. That's why lies about God are so dangerous. The Gospel According to Satan examines eight lies the enemy wants us to believe and provides eight lines of counterattack against them. The lies include: God just wants you to be happy; you only live once you need to live your truth; and just let go and let God. Jared C. Wilson reveals why these lies appeal to us, shows how they harm us, and provides ways to counteract them. We can renounce Satan's counterfeit gospel, but first we must see it for what it is. "Enumerates the major ways the Devil uses his cunning and calculating ways of luring us off the narrow road of God's grace. We will all do well to read this book and confront the lies we are being sold."--Kyle Idleman, senior pastor of Southeast Christian Church and author of Not a Fan and Don’t Give Up "A unique, compelling, and even witty look at the devil's current greatest hits--lies we urgently need to unmask." --Sam Allberry, speaker for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries and author of 7 Myths About Singleness and Why Does God Care Who I Sleep With? "One of the most thought-provoking writers in the Christian world today... He doesn’t just describe the tantalizing falsehoods of our age, he exposes how they've slithered into our hearts."--Matt Smethurst, managing editor at The Gospel Coalition and author of Before You Open Your Bible

Book Short Summary:

The title of this book, God Hears the Whispers of Our Hearts, came from sitting on a park bench with my four children when they were small, on the grounds of the State Capitol of Sacramento, with a wondering thought about where my life was headed and in what direction I will end up at. It began as a thought and then a whisper and sigh. As I gazed up at the Capitol building and admire the beauty of it (the people walking in and out, the squirrels running and playing) I whispered in my heart, "I wish I could be like one of those people entering the building to work in such a beautiful place." Immediately, my sigh and thought came to a stop""it seemed like such an impossible dream. As the time went by, the manifestation of that sigh and whisper became a reality and a dream come true. I not only worked in that building but retired from it after thirty-four years. This is the story in the contents of this book "The Bench."

Book Short Summary:

The Ego and His Own, the seminal defence of individualism, coloured the thinking of Friedrich Nietzsche, Max Ernst, Henrik Ibsen and Victor Serge, among many others, some of whom would vigorously deny any such influence in later years. Less reticent was Marcel Duchamp, who described Max Stirner as the philosopher most important to his work. Challenging the religious, philosophical and political constraints on personal freedom, Stirner criticizes all doctrines and beliefs that place the interests of God, the state, humanity or society over those of the individual. Anticipating the later work of nihilists, existentialists, and anarchists, The Ego and His Own upholds personal autonomy against all that might oppose it.

Book Short Summary:

Without the bad news of sin, death and hell, there can be no good news of Christ, salvation and eternal life. Mead’s work is a masterful exhortation first building from 1 Kings 8:37-39 of the dreadful reality of God’s judgment against sin, which leads to death, which in turn leads most people to hell. Mead was present in the great plague of London in 1665 which killed 100,000 people. Mead saw the plague as a direct example of God’s wrath against the city for its sin and wickedness. Mead’s work is not simply a discovery of sin, but a remedy for it. He demonstrates twelve sins that London was continually committing, many of which are the same sins we commit today. Mead shows what those sins are, and how to remedy them through the power of Christ’s converting Spirit of repentance. Christians often will speak of America’s need of repenting, and that God’s judgment is on America now, slowly tearing out the morality it once had, and pressing the country into a deeper sense of depravity and moral turpitude. But repentance and reformation start in the house of the Lord, just like judgment does. We don’t hear very many individual Christians saying, “America needs to repent of its sin, and this movement needs to begin with me…” Mead brings this very important point to light and causes the reader to take a spiritual inventory of his “sin list” to determine whether he is part of the cause of God’s judgment. Mead also shows what the Christian can do in circumstances like the Great Plague, and how they can be useful to the Kingdom of God.

Book Short Summary:

The Evolving Heart Nature's Astonishing Evolutionary Intention for Humanity The Heartbeat of Intelligence shows why we are not fulfilling our potential, as individuals and as a species. It shows how and why we stepped off the evolutionary path intended by Nature, a path which would have put us several evolutionary steps ahead of where we are now had we not strayed from it. The book shows how stepping off the path has severely jeopardized the mysterious connection between the heart and the brain, a connection which is essential for our continued evolution as a species. The author believes that we will not continue evolving or even survive as a species without that understanding. The book explains: The theory of neoteny and why this is the most crucial aspect of human evolution. Why synchronicity is the law by which human beings will live in the future. How left-brain dominance has led to nearly all of the problems we face today. Why Nature is far more profound and mysterious than science allows. Why seeing the Universe as a hologram answers so many puzzling questions. Love and compassion, passion and joy, goodness and beauty, are the birthright of every human being, built into our genes and intended by Nature to speak in every beat of our heart. The book shows us the delightful steps of joy and lightness which will not only take us several evolutionary steps forward, but will help us save our beautiful planet. Astonishingly, this could all be accomplished in less than a generation.

Book Short Summary:

This volume 1 of the subject title is a primer of other volumes to come, first in importance, time, or rank; it is the base coat or foundation of other volumes to come. It can be used as an excellent study guide for the righteous saints of God who intend, design, or resolve to God's will and maintain their salvation, which is a free gift of God through faith in Jesus Christ our Lord. These are people who are positively influenced and responsive to 2 Timothy 2:15, people who are diligent or studious to present themselves""approved to God, workers not ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth""and folks who testify that, according to 1 Corinthians 1:18 and Romans 1:16""17, the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God. In addition, we are not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ because it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. In it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith, that is, faith leading to faith, because it is written that the just shall live by faith. In the near future, look for the extraordinary life-giving introduction of The Prominence of Man's Existence: His Origin, Structure, Function, and Destiny from a Biblical Perspective Volume II with the same fact-based compelling and comprehensible reading agility as Volume I. Why write according to God's word, and not about, or according to man? Simply because according to John 17:17 God's word is truth, And, according to Jeremiah 17; 9-10 the heart of man is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked, but God searches our heart and test our mind to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings. And so, we must remain conscious or mindful of our deeds or characteristic activities that they are of moral character, because according to Romans 2:11 There is no partiality with God.

Book Short Summary:

John Calvin understood the importance of prayer to the Christian life and wrote extensively on the subject in his Institutes of the Christian Religion. Now modern readers can come to a firmer grasp of how the Reformer viewed prayer by reading his actual prayers. One of the greatest depositories for Calvin’s prayers is within his lectures on the Old Testament books of Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, and the twelve Minor Prophets. Each lecture would end with a prayer that seemed extemporaneous and reflected, in retrospect, upon the text he had just taught. Compiled in this volume are 150 of these prayers, arranged by subject and accompanied by the Scripture passage Calvin was expounding. These rich prayers of the great Reformer provide a valuable devotional tool to assist us as we lift up our hearts to God.

Book Short Summary:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In her latest book, Brené Brown writes, “If we want to find the way back to ourselves and one another, we need language and the grounded confidence to both tell our stories and be stewards of the stories that we hear. This is the framework for meaningful connection.” In Atlas of the Heart, Brown takes us on a journey through eighty-seven of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human. As she maps the necessary skills and an actionable framework for meaningful connection, she gives us the language and tools to access a universe of new choices and second chances—a universe where we can share and steward the stories of our bravest and most heartbreaking moments with one another in a way that builds connection. Over the past two decades, Brown’s extensive research into the experiences that make us who we are has shaped the cultural conversation and helped define what it means to be courageous with our lives. Atlas of the Heart draws on this research, as well as on Brown’s singular skills as a storyteller, to show us how accurately naming an experience doesn’t give the experience more power—it gives us the power of understanding, meaning, and choice. Brown shares, “I want this book to be an atlas for all of us, because I believe that, with an adventurous heart and the right maps, we can travel anywhere and never fear losing ourselves.”
