Book Excerpt :

Who wants to settle for fleeting treasures on earth . . . when God offers everlasting treasures in heaven? Its time to rethink our perspectives on money and possessions. In this thoroughly researched classic, Randy Alcorn shows us how to view these things accuratelyas Gods provision for our good, the good of others, and his glory. Alcorn presents a biblical and comprehensive view of money and possessions, including the following: Why is money so important to God? Is prosperity theology right or wrong? How can we be liberated from materialism? What should we do about debt? How much does God want us to give? How can we best help the poor and reach the lost? What about gambling? Investing? Insurance? Saving? Retirement? Inheritance? How can we leave our children a true heritage? How can we use money in ways that God rewards? This practical and refreshing theology of money contains topical and Scripture indexes, a study guide, and five helpful appendices.

Book Short Summary:

Is time a creation of God? How can God be considered eternal, if he is responsible for the existence of time? Is God temporal or is he timeless? The relationship between God and time has been an object of inquiry in philosophical and theological traditions around the world for centuries. This volume takes up these and other questions, presenting a range of answers not only as brought forth in European philosophical traditions and in early Christianity, Judaism and Islam, but also positions taken by mediaeval Indian theologians and in the influential traditions of early Buddhism. Traditionally, discussions have focused on questions such as whether time is a necessary concomitant of God’s existence, or whether time should be identified with God. But there is a further question: did these traditions develop their own unrelated and independent view of God and time? Or are there similarities in their reflections? This volume, with contributions of scholars from various relevant fields, offers a novel approach to these inquiries. When taken as a whole, it provides new momentum to contemplation on an age-old enigma.

Book Short Summary:

The ancient rhythm of night becoming day becoming night again has always set the tempo of our everyday lives. The daily spin and tilt of the Earth rules our clocks and calendars as well as our human bodies. Yet our minutes and hours and days all too often slip away completely unnoticed. For generations and cultures around the globe and across the ages, though, the moments surrounding sunrise and sunset have been noticeable exceptions: believers and seekers have long gathered in the gloaming to pause and reflect on the notion that the sacred unfolds, if it unfolds anywhere, in ordinary time. In Time, Twilight, and Eternity, Thom Rock explores the rich tradition of that unfolding, not only through the physics and optics of any twilight hour or rising or setting sun, but also through the whispered prayers of so many faith traditions. An unforgettable journey through the mysteries and wonders of dusk and dawn--as well as the extraordinary gifts of common prayer, ordinary time, and everyday grace--this poetic and evocative work is ultimately about our own rising and setting . . . and rising again; the daily practice of resurrection and fully inhabiting our lives here and now.

In this highly original and ground-breaking work, the author brings together discussions in the philosophy of time and space, philosophy of language, phenomenology, philosophy of science, Special and General Relativity, classical cosmology, quantum mechanics, and so forth, with the concerns of philosophy of religion and theology, in order to craft a philosophically informed and scientifically tenable doctrine of divine eternity and God's relationship to time.

Book Short Summary:

That Borges is one of the key figures in 20th-century literature is beyond debate. The reasons behind this claim, however, are a matter of contention. In Latin America he is read as someone who reorganized the canon, questioned literary hierarchies, and redefined the role of marginal literatures. On the other hand, in the rest of the world, most readers (and dictionaries) tend to identify the adjective "Borgesian" with intricate metaphysical puzzles and labyrinthine speculations of universal reach, completely detached from particular traditions. One reading is context-saturated, while the other is context-deprived. Oddly enough, these "institutional" and "transcendental" approaches have not been pitched against each other in a critical way. Borges, between History and Eternity brings these perspectives together by considering key aspects of Borges's work-the reciprocal determinations of politics, philosophy and literature; the simultaneously confining and emancipating nature of language; and the incipient program for a literature of the Americas.

Book Short Summary:

Set in Tide water Virginia in the early 1970s, Of Time and Eternity unfolds with artistic resonance and gripping realism. Across a period of three seasons, Farley traces the story of David Kirk (a Protestant minister), whose diary records the ministers private thoughts and daily events that consume his days. Uppermost, Kirks diary records his evolving love for one of his parishioners, an artist and assistant director of a gallery in nearby Norfolk. Suzanne, lonely and attractive, has equally fallen in love with David. Soon their counseling sessions lead to her home in the quiet countryside, where their yearning for each other develops in earnest. How to reconcile the affair with his genuine love for Joan, his wife, rises constantly as a whisper in the silence of his troubled heart. Both enriching and complicating the story are Davids other commitments: to a fellow minister, who struggles with his calling in search of a more honest career; to Rheba, a black woman whose son David has pledged to help; to his congregation, whom he seeks to guide and inspire in spite of his own crisis. Hardly a preachy book, Of Time and Eternity is a story of high literary quality, engaging dialogue and drama, self-discovery and redemption at the profoundest levels of the heart.

Book Short Summary:

Ive just made one of the most difficult decisions in my twenty-something years. It could be the worst, could as well be the best. Where do I go from here? But all I can say is, my life will never be the same againJohn Mark Ofori, character in the script. Life, Change, and Eternity is a story about how difficult it has become for humans, a society, or a person to move away from a particular way of lifemostly because they are familiar with their environment and are not motivated in any way to change practices. Change is a difficult decision to makewhether for good or bad. In the pages of this book, the writer portrays how important it is for a society or a person to embrace change and the consequences thereof. The foundation of the theme is seeded on two parallel events: a country facing an imminent presidential and parliamentary elections and a pastors son who is struggling to answer an alter call.

Book Short Summary:

The dimension of eternity has been lost from much contemporary religious consciousness. Liberals tend to focus on action within time, as do conservatives, who see history as a battleground for a war of good against evil. Spiritual life, however, also requires nurturing a sense of eternity within time. These sermons from Marsh Chapel at Boston University follow the lectionary in highlighting the places of temporal life within eternity, and the places eternity is found in temporal life. The liturgical year is employed as the venue for articulating a comprehensive theology on the themes of the temporal and eternal aspects of Christian nurture.

Book Short Summary:

The best description of this book is the word “parable” - a short story designed to illustrate some truth, conveying meaning indirectly by the use of comparison or analogy. Most of the articles I've written in this book are insights gained over time from life's circumstances - either firsthand or observations of others' lives - valuable lessons worth sharing. Life throws experiences at us to help us grow, develop character and over time they also prove certain principles to be true. We are often surrounded by people with opinions, and everyone has a right to their opinion, but opinions vary. I usually don't consider opinions very valuable - depending on whose they are, of course. But the truth found within a principle stands the test of time! The articles in this book are not opinions - they represent principles. They are stories that illustrate truth to straighten the path and ease the grade of the hill along this journey.

Parables of Time and Eternity

  • Pdf File: parables-of-time-and-eternity.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Most people agree that Jesus’ parables are about the kingdom of God. But what is that? They seem to have a lot about hell and judgment, but how is that consistent with the Parable of the Prodigal Son and Jesus’ search for “lost sheep”? They speak of the “Son of Man,” but who or what is that? Some have thought they predict the end of the world, but could that be a failure to understand biblical language? In a new survey of Jesus’ parables, Keith Ward proposes that they imply a theology of the universal and unlimited love of God, a moral demand to care for the well-being of all living things, a compassion for the poor and rejected of the earth, an open door of repentance that even death cannot close, the offer of new life in the Spirit, and an ultimate goal of universal creative sharing in the life of the cosmic Christ.

Book Short Summary:

A LIFE-CHANGING SPIRITUAL MASTERWORK ON GOD, HUMAN DESTINY, AND THE BIBLE A UNIQUE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY GUIDE When Time and Eternity Kiss is a boldly provocative and highly original new interpretation of the Bible--a page-turner for believers, seekers, skeptics, and secularists alike. By harmonizing the Bible with 21st c. quantum physics and the "Big Bang" theory, Maddox leads us into the labyrinth of God's mind. What are we? Where do we come from? Do we have a destiny? The Bible proclaims: "You are gods." What does that mean? Is there an objective reality or just the illusion of one, as Eastern spiritual traditions assert, quantum physics theorizes, and Einstein suggested? In When Time and Eternity Kiss, author Sean Maddox argues passionately that the Bible answers life's most perplexing questions. He supports his propositions by integrating wisdom and insight from mythologies, biblical Hebrew, Kabbalah, Hindu Chakras, Buddhism, psychology, archetypal symbolism, dream work, and quantum physics. His multidisciplinary perspective allows readers to see with new eyes how the Bible is the spiritual guide par excellence to the psycho-spiritual evolution of divine and human consciousness. INSPIRED, GROUNDBREAKING SCHOLARSHIP This revolutionary work is the culmination of the author's twenty-five-year journey of psycho-spiritual inquiry, study, and singular personal sacrifices. Maddox emerges as a daringly independent scholar and visionary who peers into the Bible's riveting mysteries and reveals God's Feminine Side in the texts. Aptly titled, When Time and Eternity Kiss is a passionate cosmic love story from start to finish. At the climax of the book, Maddox upends traditional interpretations as he illuminates the two Genesis Creation stories and shares his vision of why God shattered the silence of Eternity to create life in time and space. In radiant lucid prose, Maddox restores the Bible to 21st c. relevancy as the cornerstone of Western civilization.

Book Short Summary:

This book expresses an exciting spiritual perspective of the creation of the universe and the life of man in that universe. It is the story of man and God. It addresses the philosophical who, why, what, and where of man’s purpose and the scriptural view for the morality of men. It shows the actions of mankind through spiritual eyes and points to the stubborn and egotistical attitudes of mankind, beginning with his fall into sin. It emphasizes man’s spiritual relationship with God, God’s love for mankind throughout the ages, and the redemption of man from the curse of sin. It will draw you into a discussion of the signature sins of our times and challenge you to hear and understand the voice of God instead of just the rumblings of thunder. If you are an unbeliever, you will be challenged to repent. If you are a nominal Christian, you will be challenged to seek the power of the Holy Spirit. It is in gaining a perspective of the eternal that we understand the moment we live in.

The final report on the conservation of the wall paintings in the tomb of Nefertari in the Valley of Queens, Egypt. This highly successful collaborative venture launched by the Getty Conservation Institute and the Egyptian Antiquities Organization brought together scientists and conservators from all over the world to address the problems facing one of the most beautiful monuments of antiquity. The painstaking process that saved this cultural treasure in situ is documented in the text written by those who were most intimately involved in its rescue. Paolo and Laura Mora worked with and trained the team of conservators who carried out the consolidation and cleaning of the paintings. An international group of scientists carried out the analysis that was essential to the conservation process. Others contribute articles on the archaeology of the Valley, the iconography of the tomb, the original techniques and materials used by the artists, photographic documentation of the wall paintings, and literary sources for their study.

Book Short Summary:

Rory Fox challenges the traditional understanding that Thomas Aquinas believed that God exists totally outside of time. His study investigates the work of several mid-thirteenth-century writers, including Albert the Great and Bonaventure as well as Aquinas, examining their understanding of the topological and metrical properties of time. Fox thus provides access to a wealth of material on medieval concepts of time and eternity, while using the conceptual tools of modern analytic philosophy to express his conclusions.

Book Short Summary:

This saga of parallel universes from a Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author “may be the best constructed hard SF epic yet” (The Washington Post). One of the world’s preeminent New York Times–bestselling authors of hard science fiction mesmerizes readers with a mind-expanding, three-volume masterwork about the creation of an alternate universe that breaks down all barriers of time and space, and its consequences for future and past generations. Legacy: In the stunning prequel to Eon and Eternity, an agent of the masters of the Way—a man-made tunnel through countless dimensions—follows a renegade fanatic and his four thousand acolytes to a remarkable world of flora/fauna hybrids, where he is plunged into the terrible chaos of a raging civil war. Eon: As nuclear tensions rapidly reach a breaking point in a volatile twenty-first century, a hollowed-out asteroid appears, mysteriously hovering above the Earth’s surface. The asteroid contains the remains of Thistledown, an abandoned city that was once home to survivors of a nuclear holocaust. Scientists must race to unravel its secrets before the human race is annihilated in the impending apocalypse. Eternity: A devastating war has left Earth a nuclear wasteland. Orbiting the planet is an asteroid-starship containing the civilization of Thistledown, humanity’s future descendants. For decades, they have worked to heal their world and its survivors, but their resources are finite. They need to reopen the Way, a gate that would not only benefit Earth but also help the asteroid’s residents return home. Greg Bear’s classic Eon trilogy is an astonishing feat of the imagination that combines humanism, cutting-edge science, and brilliant extrapolation. This masterful science fiction saga has no equal in contemporary speculative fiction.

Book Short Summary:

The Newtonian concept of time has been changed by Einsteinian insight. Yet the Einsteinian world view might make it difficult to appreciate traditional concepts of eschatology, like heaven and hell, death and immortality, life after death and resurrection, last day and final judgments, because these expressions presuppose a pre-Einsteinian view of the universe. Since theology cannot remain unaffected by the new research in concepts of time, Eternity and Eternal Life tries to express the eschatological faith of the Church by using the time language of our age. To achieve this it provides an overview on the research in the nature of time done in geology, cosmology, physics, biology, psychology, sociology, history and philosophy and proposes a notion of time for “timely” Christology and for “timely” eschatology. By using the singularity event as literary form, Horvath scrutinizes how Christ’s time can lead to the times of all existing realities, through death to “eternity.” This is a pioneering work, one that needs to be tested in the community of interested readers. It is a communal search for an understanding of life, death and eternal life, not only in the light of abstract ideas and cultural linguistic doctrines in the world of religions, but also in the light of science and especially of a person as the horizon of understanding for both time and eternity. Christ as the eschatological union of time and eternity becomes the work’s unifying focus and its paradigm, which solves recognized problems and opens our minds to new ones.

Book Short Summary:

This remarkable work reads in part like science fiction, although it is based on solid scientific facts. The author turns the tables – or the light beam – and has observers look down on the earth from stars located at a variety of distances out in space. (…) This idea was crucial for the special theory of relativity: Time travels with light. (...) Einstein would later supply the scientific foundation for these kinds of fantasies. Jürgen Neffe: Einstein – A Biography (2005) It is one of the most strikingly suggestive books, and small though it is, one of the most remarkable of the present century. Richard A. Proctor, Honorary Secretary of the Royal Astronomical Society (1880) ... it contains a fund of deep thought which larger works on astronomical subjects have seldom developed. It is most logically written. Step by step, from undeniable premises, does the writer prove his point, until the omniscience of the great one Deity is made apparent to our mental vision, and in an extraordinary new and clearer light. Dolman's Magazine (1846) It is one of the most poetical ideas which the human mind can entertain, — an idea which is not merely chimerical and imaginary, but based on scientific facts, and logically true. We wonder it has never been hit upon before. Family Herald (1846)

Book Short Summary:

For more than eight hundred years, Saladin avoided forming an attachment to a woman. Sure, there has been a few in his life. In fact, the hinges on his revolving door are ready to self-combust. He’s definitely no saint. Once the formidable leader of a great nation, he’s feared and admired in the supernatural world. But not by Teagan, the one woman whose strength and defiance struck him with an instant attraction he can’t deny. Two years has passed since he last saw Teagan, and his feelings for her haven’t changed. Not that he expected otherwise. After all, she is his mate. Well, she would’ve been if circumstances had been different. Now cut off from her, his life has begun to spiral out of control. He can’t feed, can’t sleep, can barely function; even his sanity is questionable. Though determined to avoid Saladin, Teagan can’t help the desire the infuriatingly sexy vampire stirs in her, plaguing her thoughts and dreams nightly. That doesn’t mean she’ll give into her contemptuous hormones. Saladin is dangerous, and a complication she doesn’t need. Next in line to carry her family’s curse, a relationship with the surly vamp would end in disappointment and death, specifically hers. Nope. She wants nothing to do with Saladin. That is, until her grandfather dies. Teagan not only gains her family’s ancient power, but also she’s now number 1 on Morganna’s hit list. The evil sorceress is as determined to kill her as Saladin is to keep her safe. Staying alive long enough to free herself of her family’s curse, save her sisters from the same fate, defeat Morganna, and find a way to be with Saladin is a juggle of responsibilities and temptations. With life, death, and eternity on the line, which way will the hammer of destiny fall?

Book Short Summary:

One of the vital issues in contemporary Christian theology is the problem of a renewed understanding of God's eternity and its relation to time. This is not merely a peripheral doctrinal issue, but lies at the heart of our understanding of God and humanity, and contributes to our entire worldview. This study focuses on a long-standing debate between two competing views on God's eternity: one focused on God's absolute timelessness in classical theism, and the other on God's temporal everlastingness in contemporary panentheism. In contrast to both of these well-worn options, this book presents an alternative Trinitarian analogical understanding of God's eternity and its relation to time, especially through a critical reflection on Karl Barth's and Hans Urs von Balthasar's engagement of the issue. This analogical approach, based on the dynamic and dramatic concepts of God's being-in-relation and of the Triune God's communicative action in eternity and time, has the potential to resolve the debate between absolute timeless eternity and temporal everlasting duration.

Book Short Summary:

In nineteenth-century Britain, a large number of prominent Anglican and Presbyterian Evangelicals rejected the idea that salvation meant "going to heaven when you die." Instead, they proposed that God would establish his kingdom on earth, renewing the creation and reanimating embodied humans to live in a world of science and progress. This book introduces the writings and activities of these women and men, among whom were counted the ardent social reformer Lord Shaftesbury, the highly-respected clergyman Edward Bickersteth, the popular author Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna, and the General Secretary of the Evangelical Alliance, Thomas Rawson Birks. The book shows that the catalyst for such theological revisionism was the end-times doctrine known as "premillennialism." While commonly characterized as a gloomy and sectarian belief, the book argues that premillennialism in Victorian Britain was actually an optimistic and often liberalizing creed. It dissolved older Evangelical assumptions about the dissimilarities between time and eternity, body and soul, heaven and earth. The book demonstrates that, far from being eccentric pessimists, premillennialists were actually pioneers of trends in nineteenth-century Christian theology that stressed the importance of the incarnation, prioritized social justice, and even entertained the idea of universal salvation.
