Book Excerpt :

Adam speaks The story of Adam and Eve is known throughout the world. It is a tale passed down through the beginning of humanity that is believed by Christians, Jews and Muslims alike. There isn’t much to it other than the creation of man and woman and the loss of paradise attributed to their disobedience in biting an apple from a forbidden tree. This book gives a detailed portrayal of the familiar story from the perspective of Adam. It tells of the relationship Adam had with God before and after Eve was created and before and after the fall as well. As a consequence to Adam’s sin he is doomed to live many lives to witness the effect it has on mankind throughout history to the present day. Adam narrates significant events of history such as the fall of Satan, the first murder, the great flood and the origins of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim nations. Along the way he explains mysteries like creation, evolution, giants, dinosaurs, reincarnation and the spiritual laws that control the universe. As Adam tells his story he produces a scathing diatribe directed at organized religion with the passion only the one and only original man can muster. This story is thought provoking and entertaining and should appeal to fans of fiction and non fiction, believers, non believers and lovers of philosophy.

Cuba and the Fall

Book Short Summary:

The literature of Cuba, argues Eduardo González in this new book, takes on quite different features depending on whether one is looking at it from "the inside" or from "the outside," a view that in turn is shaped by official political culture and the authors it sanctions or by those authors and artists who exist outside state policies and cultural politics. González approaches this issue by way of two twentieth-century writers who are central to the canon of gay homoerotic expression and sensibility in Cuban culture: José Lezama Lima (1910–1976) and Reinaldo Arenas (1943–1990). Drawing on the plots and characters in their works, González develops both a story line and a moral tale, revolving around the Christian belief in the fall from grace and the possibility of redemption, that bring the writers into a unique and revealing interaction with one another. The work of Lezama Lima and Arenas is compared with that of fellow Cuban author Virgilio Piñera (1912–1979) and, in a wider context, with the non-Cuban writers John Milton, Nathaniel Hawthorne, William Faulkner, John Ruskin, and James Joyce to show how their themes get replicated in González’s selected Cuban fiction. Also woven into this interaction are two contemporary films—The Devil’s Backbone (2004) and Pan’s Labyrinth (2007)—whose moral and political themes enhance the ethical values and conflicts of the literary texts. Referring to this eclectic gathering of texts, González charts a cultural course in which Cuba moves beyond the Caribbean and into a latitude uncharted by common words, beyond the tyranny of place.

Book Short Summary:

This challenging work argues for the importance of spirituality in Cold War America. It was the first period when the nation, teetering between patriotism and doubt about the global future, became a superpower. It was also the last period during which America’s leaders and ministers regularly proclaimed that the nation was not free of sin. Stevens traces two movements in the culture of this time. The first is a recoiling from the alleged innocence of the 1930s-- the Red Decade-- and the formation of a Cold War sensibility in the late 1940s-50s. This sensibility was grounded in sobriety, in the rejection of utopia, in a neo- Judeo-Christian image of human nature tainted by sin and in the tacit or explicit support for a pro-American anti-communism. The second movement is the fragmentation of this early Cold War sensibility and its passing into obsolescence by the 1960s. Covering a wide selection of narrative and cultural forms – including theology, fiction, film noir, journalism, and confessional biography –Stevens demonstrates how writers, artists, and intellectuals-- the devout as well as the non-religious-- disseminated the terms of this cultural dialogue, disputing, refining, and challenging it.

Book Short Summary:

In 1948 Robert Graves published The White Goddess. His study of poetic mysticism and goddess worship has since become a founding text of Western paganism. As Wicca emerged from what Graves called, a few hopeful young people in California, to over two million strong, The White Goddess has achieved near liturgical status. This rising appreciation brings all the problems of liturgical texts. Many pagans consider Graves’ work like the goddess herself; awe inspiring but impenetrable. Stalking The Goddess is the first extensive examination of this enigmatic text to come from the pagan community and guides readers through bewildering forests of historical sources, poems, and Graves’ biography to reveal his unorthodox claims and entrancing creative process. Relentlessly perusing each path, it explores the uncharted woods and reveals the hidden signposts Graves has posted. The hunt for the goddess spans battlefields, ancient manuscripts, the British museum, and Stonehenge. En route we encounter not only the goddess herself but her three sacred animals; dog, roebuck, and lapwing. Perhaps the muse cannot be captured on her own grounds, but now at least there is a map.

Centralized globalization over our individual lives grows at an ever-increasing rate. International treaties now bypass congressional scrutiny, enforcing global solutions to problems that some feel are none of the globes business. With the worlds drive for global equality, solving Beijings pollution requires Texas barbeques to also be limited in their carbon footprint. Eventually, only global laws will satisfy the view that equal justice requires equal restrictions throughout the world. John the Apostle saw what lies ahead. He was given a tour of his futureand ourswhich he recorded in the Bibles last book, Revelation. On the surface, however, Revelation is not that revealing. Its written in code, even more cryptic than the parables of Jesus. Neither release their wisdom to the casual student. Government vs. God attempts to grasp what Revelation reveals about humanitys pending attempt to replace God with its government as that provider to which we bow.

Book Short Summary:

"This book incorporates a vast process of thought which includes philosophy, theology, biblical knowledge, insights from world religions, as well as ancient and recent history, in its narrative. The Jesus of this book is not the historical person the Catholic and the Christian Churches propose to believers, but one who grapples with his identity and mission from within his subconscious mind. This subconscious mind of Jesus, the book proposes, is one that derives its vitality from different sources: Jewish, Egyptian, Greek and Indian.However, the predominant quintessential element that permeates the subconscious mind of Jesus and gives meaning to his existence and mission, is the sacred feminine. This work therefore unambiguously asserts that woman is the primordial being of the manifest world, the primeval life giving force that pervades both womb and tomb. The divine feminine thereby emerges as the indispensable key in determining the real identity, mission and destiny of the man Jesus of Nazareth."

  • Pdf File: being-towards-death.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This book draws the philosophical contribution of Martin Heidegger together with theological-spiritual insights from the East, especially that of Nikolai Berdyaev. Thus, it brings into dialogue the West with the East, and philosophy with theology. By doing so, it offers Christian theology an existential-spiritual language that is relevant and meaningful for the contemporary reader. In particular, the work explores Heidegger’s ‘being towards death’ (Sein zum Tode) as the basis for theological-philosophical thinking. Only the one who embraces ‘being towards death’ has the courage to think and poetize. This thinking, in turn, makes ‘being towards death’ possible, and in this circular movement of thinking and being, the mystery of being reveals itself and yet remains hidden. Since the work aims at demonstrating ‘being towards death’ through language, it transitions away from the common formulations and traditionally accepted ways of writing (dogmatic) theology towards an original, philosophical reflection on faith and spirituality. At different points, however, the work also retrieves the profound thoughts and theologies of the past, the insightful creativity of which cannot be denied.

Book Short Summary:

Arguing against the widely held belief that technology and religion are at war with each other, David F. Noble's groundbreaking book reveals the religious roots and spirit of Western technology. It links the technological enthusiasms of the present day with the ancient and enduring Christian expectation of recovering humankind's lost divinity. Covering a period of a thousand years, Noble traces the evolution of the Western idea of technological development from the ninth century, when the useful arts became connected to the concept of redemption, up to the twentieth, when humans began to exercise God-like knowledge and powers. Noble describes how technological advance accelerated at the very point when it was invested with spiritual significance. By examining the imaginings of monks, explorers, magi, scientists, Freemasons, and engineers, this historical account brings to light an other-worldly inspiration behind the apparently worldly endeavors by which we habitually define Western civilization. Thus we see that Isaac Newton devoted his lifetime to the interpretation of prophecy. Joseph Priestley was the discoverer of oxygen and a founder of Unitarianism. Freemasons were early advocates of industrialization and the fathers of the engineering profession. Wernher von Braun saw spaceflight as a millenarian new beginning for humankind. The narrative moves into our own time through the technological enterprises of the last half of the twentieth century: nuclear weapons, manned space exploration, Artificial Intelligence, and genetic engineering. Here the book suggests that the convergence of technology and religion has outlived its usefulness, that though it once contributed to human well-being, it has now become a threat to our survival. Viewed at the dawn of the new millennium, the technological means upon which we have come to rely for the preservation and enlargement of our lives betray an increasing impatience with life and a disdainful disregard for mortal needs. David F. Noble thus contends that we must collectively strive to disabuse ourselves of the inherited religion of technology and begin rigorously to re-examine our enchantment with unregulated technological advance.

Book Short Summary:

Sometimes referred to as his "Accidental Self Help" book, Ernest Wylie Harkins has compiled a series of life lessons, valuable rules for living, acquired from his various father figures, with a few of his own original rules thrown in for good measure. Like Ben Franklin, he has tried to emulate the admirable in others, and of course Franklin himself is among his "supplemental" Fathers in that and other ways. He also adopted Franklin's general approach to self improvement as well, making a plan, making small changes continuously. Drawing from influences throughout his life, from family, from teachers, public figures, and people casually met along the way, he relates the background and situation that produced the little nuggets of wisdom. Some are mundane (Just Keep Peckin' at It), some lofty (Every Man is your Guru), some only examples and still others more in the vein of self help (Life is the Illusion of Attitude), but all are worth considering for your own adoption. Finally, there is the self help prescription, how you too can benefit from a similar self examination.

Deification in Russian Religious Thought

Book Short Summary:

Deification in Russian Religious Thought considers the reception of the Eastern Christian (Orthodox) doctrine of deification by Russian religious thinkers of the immediate pre-revolutionary period. Deification is the metaphor that the Greek patristic tradition came to privilege in its articulation of the Christian concept of salvation: to be saved is to be deified, that is, to share in the divine attribute of immortality. In the Christian narrative of the Orthodox Church 'God became human so that humans might become gods'. Ruth Coates shows that between the revolutions of 1905 and 1917 Russian religious thinkers turned to deification in their search for a commensurate response to the apocalyptic dimension of the universally anticipated destruction of the Russian autocracy and the social and religious order that supported it. Focusing on major works by four prominent thinkers of the Russian Religious Renaissance—Dmitry Merezhkovsky, Nikolai Berdiaev, Sergei Bulgakov, and Pavel Florensky—Coates demonstrates the salience of the deification theme and explores the variety of forms of its expression. She argues that the reception of deification in this period is shaped by the discourse of early Russian cultural modernism, and informed not only by theology, but also by nineteenth-century currents in Russian religious culture and German philosophy, particularly as these are received by the novelist Fedor Dostoevsky and the philosopher Vladimir Soloviev. In the works that are analysed, deification is taken out of its original theological context and applied respectively to politics, creativity, economics, and asceticism. At the same time, all the thinkers represented in the book view deification as a project: a practice that should deliver the total transformation and immortalisation of human beings, society, culture, and the material universe, and this is what connects them to deification's theological source.

He wants us to look at who we are now, juxtaposed against whom we were supposed to be, and based on His purpose for creating us. He wants us to not be angry with Adam and Eve for their error in judgment. What if Adam and Eve were teenagers, madly in love with each other? Do you remember your first love? Did you make sense? Did you obey your parents when they said, "Don't see that person"? He wants us to consider the question, "What do we need to do now to become the original Adam before sin?" He wants us to recognize that Adam as one person was male and female. However, after Adam slept, he was Adam and Eve""two people, male and female, husband and wife, the first, the image of marriage!

Book Short Summary:

It was sometime in the twenty-first century, when one discovery revolutionized the world further than any ever before it. This was the discovery of a nonlinear power, which lies inside of every living and nonliving organism on the planet. Its discoverers termed it Meteora. With it came the ability to tap into a clean, seemingly unlimited source of energy. With further study, it was found that only a few genetically gifted individuals could use this power World War III was fought between these new beings and the United Governments of the world. After fighting to a stalemate, the governments and the beings who had access to this power, now known as Homospiritus, came to an agreement called the Accords. Code 23: By law, all children born who are capable of using Meteora will be taken for safety reasons to Gardens to learn to control their powers, and serve the greater good of the commonwealth. Which meant to become a soldier in the army of the new world order. Tenchi was four years old when they came for him. Despite the best efforts by his mother to keep him hidden and safe, he was taken by force to Juneau Gardens, which is the home of the Homospiritus and the new governing order of the former United States of America, now named Juneau. It is a Gardens itself, one of a series of peaceful and beautiful utopian societies made up of the now free Homospiritus who, under the terms of the Accords, were allowed their independence and sovereignty. Gardens are realms, which demonstrate the height of Meteora manipulation and the coming together of humans with Meteora to create a utopian, Shangri-La-like paradise on a level with the Garden of Eden. Now inside of Gardens, Tenchi is swept up in a world of Meteora, fighting, and war, to protect a world he does not really feel a part of. He is taken from his home, his mother, and the only family he has ever known and commissioned to fight in a war for the peace and safety of the planet. He is forced to go through rigorous training and trials, as well as torment from other Homospiritus, when the only thing he truly cares about is getting home to his mother. And, after six years in the Gardens’ Academy comes to an end, he seems to get his chance when, at the age of ten, Tenchi graduates. Now he is an apprentice, under the command of a Master Agent who guards, trains, and protects him and his two other apprentices, Ko and Suki. In the field as a second level of training, Tenchi has a greater degree of freedom, though under the careful guidance and tutelage of Master Agent Shaun. The team members begin their journey all over the world carrying out peace missions while simultaneously improving and learning how to better use Meteora in real-life battle situations, all to prepare the young Agents to eventually go out on their own. This is vital, as it is public knowledge that the life of an apprentice is a very short one. Tenchi is then swept up in a series of missions, both dangerous and important to the fate and the safety of the whole world. Eventually, he is sent on a mission where he encounters terrorists with nuclear arms who have also taken their own dark dive into the use of Meteora, only to corrupt it. Tenchi is given the chance to abandon his mission and continue his own, which has always been to return to his mother. But now he is faced with a choice, to return home or to fight to secure and prevent the misuse of The Sword of Heaven, an ancient weapon of unparalleled power forged of Meteora itself. If not kept in check, The Sword will throw the world into an apocalyptic age from which we may never recover, a fate that will visit both Homospiritus and humankind alike.

Book Short Summary:

Alien Covenant: Genesis I explores the idea of ancient astronauts - humanoid aliens who came to Earth a long time ago and created safe havens and mankind. It presents a different story of creation, with an imaginative account of how the solar system came to be. As astronauts on a mission, God, Satan and the angels come alive in this revealing adaptation of the banned story of Adam and Eve, where lords and ladies require mono-atomic gold powder for everlasting life. A foreign legion of dragon-dog angels from the Planet of Fates, farming in the Garden of Eden and mining nearby, strike against God, who replaces them with hew-brutes and a hew-man called Adam. But Adam and his helper, Eve, mate against God's law and are expelled into the wilderness. Is this part of God's plan to lead his mission in a new direction? What are the Ancient Mysteries all about? Some may label this book as heresy, even blasphemy, but others who reason will smile at the cleverly suggested origins of names, stories, objects and customs from around the world. While in eighth grade at Catholic school, James Hansen questioned supernaturalism, especially miracles in The Holy Bible. He asked his teacher, "How come the miracles that happened thousands of years ago do not happen today?" Her answer - "It is a mystery." - has been stuck in his mind ever since. James has researched mythology, religion, science and ancient astronauts for more than 40 years. He graduated from Oregon State University and attended graduate school at Harvard. Hansen lived in England for 10 years and has visited 22 countries, working for 24 years as a civil engineering assistant in the U.S. Air Force, retiring as a master sergeant. A recent lymphoma survivor, he lives in Oregon with his wife. Alien Covenant: Genesis I is his first book.

Book Short Summary:

Abraham is known as the “father of Israel” because God appeared to him and promised that his descendants would become a great nation. Yet Abraham is much more than the patriarch of a select group of ancient people. Through Abraham’s descendants, God’s own Son, Jesus, was born. Abraham is the father of all God’s people. In this study, John MacArthur guides readers through an in-depth look at the historical period beginning with Abraham’s call from God, continuing through his relocation in the land of Canaan, and concluding with the story of his grandsons Jacob and Esau. This study includes close-up examinations of Sarah, Hagar, Ishmael, and Isaac, as well as careful considerations of doctrinal themes such as “Covenant and Obedience” and “Wrestling with God.” The MacArthur Bible Studies provide intriguing examinations of the whole of Scripture. Each guide incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Word of God with guidance from John MacArthur.

Book Short Summary:

The divine inspiration of Scripture may be confidently affirmed from Paul's epistles. However, it is hard to find such an explicit approach from Jesus and the Gospels. In this NSBT volume, Matthew Barrett argues that Jesus and the apostles have just as convictional a doctrine of Scripture as Paul or Peter, but it will only be discovered if the Gospels are read within their own canonical horizon and covenantal context.

Book Short Summary:

"He says you'll never be hurt as much by being open as you have been by remaining closed." The messenger is a school janitor with a master's in art history who claims to be channeling "from both sides of the veil." "He" is Adam, a three-year-old who has never spoken an intelligible word. And the message is intended for Martha Beck, Adam's mother, who doesn't know whether to make a mad dash for the door to escape a raving lunatic (after all, how many conversations like this one can you have before you stop getting dinner party invitations and start pushing a mop yourself?) or accept another in a series of life lessons from an impeccable but mysterious source. From the moment Martha and her husband, John, accidentally conceived their second child, all hell broke loose. They were a couple obsessed with success. After years of matching IQs and test scores with less driven peers, they had two Harvard degrees apiece and were gunning for more. They'd plotted out a future in the most vaunted ivory tower of academe. But the dream had begun to disintegrate. Then, when their unborn son, Adam, was diagnosed with Down syndrome, doctors, advisers, and friends in the Harvard community warned them that if they decided to keep the baby, they would lose all hope of achieving their carefully crafted goals. Fortunately, that's exactly what happened. Expecting Adam is a poignant, challenging, and achingly funny chronicle of the extraordinary nine months of Martha's pregnancy. By the time Adam was born, Martha and John were propelled into a world in which they were forced to redefine everything of value to them, put all their faith in miracles, and trust that they could fly without a net. And it worked. Martha's riveting, beautifully written memoir captures the abject terror and exhilarating freedom of facing impending parentdom, being forced to question one's deepest beliefs, and rewriting life's rules. It is an unforgettable celebration of the everyday magic that connects human souls to each other.

Book Short Summary:

In Holy Scripture, words mean things! Why is the "place of the skull" so important when three of the four Gospels mention Golgotha? Inquiring minds long before ago answered that question! It may not be because the rock formation resembles a skull. It may have deeper meaning. Perhaps as some church fathers believed, Adam is buried on Calvary. In this book, that contention is explored. Did Adam lose his significance at his death, or is there a link throughout the Scripture? That may never be known, but the thought is intriguing. This is a work of fiction, but in the stories of biblical characters, there seems to be much more implied than said. John made that clear when he wrote his Gospel. Since Jesus was here in the beginning, where was he? He was always there! He still is always with us! The skull of Adam is used herein to present essential doctrines in a casual conversational manner. It is all about the mystery of God. The mystery revealed is that in all times, the Scripture is all about Jesus. What is said in these conversations explain the words of Jesus before he was ever born.

Book Short Summary:

The Sultanate of Oman is one of the few "good news" stories to have emerged from the Middle East in recent memory. This book traces the narrative of a little-known and relatively stable Arab country whose history of independence, legacy of interaction with diverse cultures, and enlightened modern leadership have transformed it in less than fifty years from an isolated medieval-style potentate to a stable, dynamic, and largely optimistic country. At the heart of this fascinating story is Oman’s sultan, Qaboos bin Sa’id, friend to both East and West, whose unique leadership style has resulted in both domestic and foreign policy achievements during more than four decades in office. Exploring Oman from a historical perspective, Funsch examines how the country’s unique blend of tradition and modernization has enabled it to succeed while others in the region have failed. Accounts of the author’s own experiences with Oman’s transformation add rich layers of depth, texture, and personality to the narrative.

Book Short Summary:

As part of his effort to make the Bible an effective instrument of reform in society, church, and everyday life, Erasmus composed the Paraphrases. In these series of texts, the Holy Scripture provides the core of a work that is vastly expanded to embrace the reforming "philosophy of Christ" in all of its forms. This volume contains two sets of Paraphrases, one on the Corinthian letters (circa. 1519), and the other on the group of letters from the Ephesians to the Thessalonians (circa. 1520). The first set presents an epistolary narrative which not only enlivens the events described but revisits them from a sixteenth-century perspective. Together, they form a sharpened portrait of the primitive Corinthian church and an intriguing critique of the church as it was in Erasmus's time. The second set, Ephesians to Thessalonians, offers an interpretation of Pauline theology with humanistic overtones that are distinctively Erasmian. In these Paraphrases, we see the craft of the philologist at work in the articulation of the doctrine of the Trinity, the humanist depicting Christ with an unmistakably human sensibility, and the artist discussing familiar theological virtues of faith and love in a new way. Apart from providing the first complete English translations of these Paraphrases since 1549, this volume gives excellent insight into the fundamentals of Erasmian theology and includes annotations which highlight the historical and linguistic implications of Erasmus's original texts.
