Book Short Summary:

Did you know that you are of great importance to the universe? You are part of a mosaic of life, and you have meaning. This is not intended to make you feel good or bad. It is a fact of third dimensional reality and beyond. You are an ingredient in the flow of history, but the reasons why can seem a mystery. Only you hold the key to your existence. What is the meaning of life? What is your ultimate destination? We liken the journey of life to walking the path of a labyrinth. The initial step of the journey is to simply realize what exists in the world today; the second is to realize the parts we play. The third step highlights issues that interfere with our potential and provides tools to set us free. The fourth reflects a vision of the future that is totally dependent on our willingness to step beyond our current world conditions and level of consciousness. As we travel through this lifelong labyrinth of third dimensional reality, we must keep in mind that there are many paths but only one journey. This path that you now walk is the key to the great mystery of existenceyour existence. Finding purpose is a logical goal, and in part, that is necessary but there is a greater mystery to solve on your journey. Are you ready to find the answers?

Book Short Summary:

Life and death struggles, a common thread that connects us as human beings, are vividly revealed in this inspirational and unforgettable true story as told by a mother and her daughter of their babies, born with life threatening birth defects. Swept away on an uncharted and treacherous journey one thing clearly emerges, God, the ultimate thread that held them together through their darkest hours, was waiting for them there. He gave them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness so He might be glorified through their babies’ life and death struggles. (Isaiah 61: 3b) At every bend in the road lives were forever changed. The baby boy unable to ever speak a word about what he endured in his fight for life went to his grave never knowing what a giant impression his tiny handprint had left on every heart he touched...leaving this world a better place than he found it. For the little girl, the veil separating Heaven and Earth was lifted . . . “Mommy, I see an angel!” Hoping to get a glimpse, her mommy searched the hospital room eagerly. “Where do you see an angel?” her mommy asked. She pointed overhead, “Up there . . . in the corner of my room . . . one angel with big, pink wings.” Although her mommy didn’t see the Heavenly being, together they felt the comfort of its presence. On their timeless journey of faith, hope, and love, their loving God went with them through it all: healing hearts, changing lives, sharing their deepest sorrows, and sending his angels to comfort and help them. Their stories, formed in the crucible of life and death struggles, were transformed by the grace of God into a thing of beauty. “He hath made every thing beautiful in his time.” (Ecclesiastes 3: 11a, KJV)

Sarah Connor takes you through her journey as an Indigo Child; a journey of love, heartbreak, friendships, family and insight using her written poetic words. Sarah never felt that she fit in with this world and struggled to find her place amongst the ‘broken hearts’ and ‘lonely faces’. Over the many years of trying to understand her role, who she was, and why she was here, Sarah wrote poetry. Heart Deep is a ten year collection of her work and takes you right back to the very beginning of where her journey began. Sarah’s poetry comes straight through her heart, and with her unique view of the world as her filter, she allows her spirit to guide the formation of her words and give rise to her poetry.

Book Short Summary:

Be prepared for a rapidly changing world that forces many to undertake the fight of their lives. You will see a return to faith and citizenship that must be demonstrated on virtually every level. The principal character, David Werner, becomes a pivotal resistance leader named Bear. Forced to relive the events of the war before a Senate hearing, we learn of how what were once unthinkable events led up to the conflict, how the resistance was born, how it evolved, and the slow and deliberate rise of its elusive leader known as Two Dragons. In this story, the main character, along with many others in the world, watches as the country and world they once knew devolve on virtually every level. Like so many, they attempt to navigate the rapidly changing political environment, holding on to the illusion that everything will eventually work itself out. Despite their best efforts, the world erupts into a global conflict that reaches America's shores. In the course of this war, the characters find that the enemy within their nation may be even more dangerous than their external foes. Through the uncontainable events of his new life, Bear must reconcile how the tenets of a great society became so broken. He and all those who struggle with him must learn to care for each other as they discover the truth that lies within each of them. With the illusions of their former lives stripped away, people are forced to make a choice, thereby considering how each of them will express their choices through their actions. From these individual choices, we see the rise of the great American militia and a return to our founder's ideals. Once again, a people must learn to boldly walk the journey of faith and demonstrative citizenship. This is not the tale of lost hope or global collapse. Instead, it is a story of the return to faith, hope, and true liberty. Nonetheless, the path they must travel is fraught with danger and conflict. Early on in the story, the reader will assume what this story is about, only to find themselves pulled in a new direction. Here our characters begin to find a new and greater purpose, and the reader begins to evolve with our intrepid group of unlikely worriers. Throughout their struggle, you will walk with them, cry with them, laugh with them, and ultimately, you may ask, "Who am I?"

Book Short Summary:

Life is a journey that includes laughter and also tears. It is sometimes a voyage of questions and doubts, but it can be a journey of faith. In this personal narrative and devotional, author Heather McCormick tells her story of facing infertility, caregiving, grief, and other challenges. A Journey of Faith openly shares her emotions, questions, doubts, and struggles, but it also records the faithfulness of God along this unexpected journey and the wisdom He taught her through the fires. Of the lessons that she shares, some teach about Gods faithfulness, His goodness, His comfort, His healing, His presence, His perfect timing, His sovereignty, and His answers to prayers. Others focus on faith, forgiveness, grace, love, humility, grief, laughter, peace, and spiritual warfare. In A Journey of Faith, McCormick communicates that God is at work in the problems you face. He is with you always and uses the problems to teach you. She shows the importance of continuing on the faith journey and learning to walk by faith with God.

Book Short Summary:

Stories, Senses and the Charismatic Relation offers a uniquely intimate and auto-ethnographic exploration of Christian experience, rendering a deep, phenomenological account of how devotional worlds become real – how they are experienced, shaped, constituted and performed by those who live them. The book starts from a reflexive exploration of the author’s own experiences of the divine, considers the spiritual journeys of family members and the ‘spiritual community’ of which he was a part, and draws on ethnographic fieldwork in the southern Balkans where that community was based. Jamie Barnes considers three main elements: firstly, the role that sensory aspects of experience play in constituting one’s lived world and one’s ideas about the kinds of beings inhabiting it; secondly, how stories and metaphors are tactically employed, not only in the process of expressing aspects of past experience, but also in shaping and forming both desired worlds and future pathways; thirdly, how such sensed, narrated and lived worlds are tentatively held together - in hope, trust and love – through charismatic relationships of devotion with a divine Other. This unusual and innovative ethnography offers a unique and reflexive view from within the world of Christian experience.

Book Short Summary:

The word of God is not designated to any one group or nationality, but instead is available for all who wish to learn His word and apply it to his or her daily life. Even better, understanding the Bible does not require a degree in theology, but simply an open heart and mind. Uplifting and deeply moving, Walking with God Is a Divine Journey shares ways to develop a closer relationship with God through our lifes experiences. Author Lisa Olivares Young explains how, regardless of how your life began or how many mistakes youve made, the promises of God are deeply rooted within us to seek the life He so graciously desires for us. Young uses personal anecdotes and biblical stories to illustrate how God has worked in her life. She also explores the doubts, fears, and perplexities she has endured in various life situations, illustrating how she found comfort and guidance in the Bible and through prayer. Each chapter touches upon a subject often encountered in our walk with God, including learning from your past; overcoming lifes challenges; discovering your purpose; taking the road less traveled. Part memoir and part Bible study, Walking with God Is a Divine Journey will help you develop your faith, understand Gods love and guidance, and listen to His correction, all by reading and applying His word.

Come With Us for This Extraordınary Journey of Discovery! Let’s Get Acquainted With the Books Discoverıng the Secret of the Universe! This book is penned down in order to introduce you a piece of work, that is so unbelievably and astonishingly perfect that it will surprise you with the high truths and grand scientific discoveries contained therein and will make some of you say “How come I have never heard of it until now!” (Or could not really discover it). The main subject of study of these books is the following: To give correct answers to three basic questions of existence, which have remained as the unknown secrets of the universe that have been always wondered by the humanity. The discovery of the right answers in these areas has been possible not only with the use of the mind/intellect which is incapable of reaching to the truth on its own but rather with the common guidance of divine revelation and the mind. Nevertheless, the answers to the questions that were asked have been discovered solely with rational inferences and logical evidences. These three questions are: “Where did this universe and those within it come from? Where will they go? And Why are they here, what is their mission? That is to ask “What are we doing here?” High truths, which the whole humanity needs and which are appealing to all those who look for the explanation of the basic reality of existence and which is more interesting for the world of science and the scientists and which is brought by divine revelation, are discovered once again and proved with rational methods in these works. Especially today, while quantum physics, astronomy and astrophysics have reached to such advanced levels, common answers are looked for these three questions on matter, universe and human being; the science and these works study the same subjects and share a common ground of work. Here you are: The work, which contains in itself a spiritual/immaterial treasury for people who have an irresistible interest and passion for science and learning, is called RISALE-I NUR (TREATISE OF LIGHT). The content of the book is composed of 19 basic epistles selected from the Collection of Risale-i Nur. Some selected parts related to the subject from 23rd Word Epistle of Nature, Epistle of Resurrection, first eight Words and some other epistles are included in our book. The main texts from Risale-i Nur are placed in the beginning, the words and concepts are explained in the footnotes and the explanatory texts are provided afterwards. In addition, occasionally, as the need arises, explanatory texts are included within the text of the book in the form of an intermediary note. The first part of our book, which consists of two main sections is entitled as “Discovering the Value of the Treasure of Faith.” In this section, the following is presented: the meaning and the importance of the faith and worship, which are proposed by the Religion to the man; how the hidden secret of the universe is solved by the religion; the beauty of faith and how the true value of man comes to light with faith, and the levels of Qur’an and philosophy in terms of understanding the Secret of the Universe. Finally, we are trying to look closely at the great good news and the remedy for death brought by the religion through prophets and we are looking for the answer to this question: “What are the characteristics of true faith that will enable us to earn the eternal life?” We can regard this first part as the understanding of how great and precious a treasure is. The second part of the book is entitled as ” Proving the Existence of the Treasure of Faith with Evidences”. In this section, six pillars of faith are proved with detailed evidences. In other words, in the second section, the existence of the treasure sought to be achieved, whose value is understood/appreciated in the first section, is proved; its place is discovered, and this great and magnificent treasure is acquired. Primarily understanding that faith is such a great blessing and a treasure with a great value would determine the importance that we would give to that treasure and its evidences. Nevertheless, you will also observe that in the first part, a serious effort has also been made to search for the truth and evidences. Once you complete the book, you will have completed an important reading that could be considered as a brief summary of the Risale-i Nur collection and taken a serious step in studying the high knowledge of faith that is taught by these works. In “The Journeys of Discovery Risale-i Nur Training Program”, you are invited for an adventure of looking for and finding out the truth. We have a very strong reason to begin this journey: to witness the magnificent details of the divine technology and uniqueness of the artful creation and hence, to take a big step on the way of achieving the true faith that was demanded from us by Allah. We would like you to accompany us in this imaginary and mental journey of discovery. There is only one fixed price for a ticket of the Journey: A strong sense of wonder in the search for truth.

Book Short Summary:

This book is born out of the idea that we are all essentially one with a prime source of energy. We are all on a journey of the soul, searching and seeking out our true nature. It has been carefully created to reflect that we are more than we have been taught in our schools and society. We have been placed into a dream, which is an illusionary one but one which our spiritual essence seeks to be awakened from. It has been written to inspire and excite others to follow the path of the heart, the one heart, and realize their full potential of unlimited possibilities that exists when you allow the higher realms to guide ones journey. This book charts the challenges and magical experiences that Michael has uncovered on his path of remembrance. The reader is reminded that the journey is the contract between souls and the heavenly realms, which reveals the truth of their being. The story takes on a personal adventure of ancient discoveries of past lives intermingled with present life clues into Michaels true essence as a spiritual warrior of light. It aims to show the reader that even those people who have assumed that their life has no meaning and who may not have achieved an academic standing still can achieve accolades beyond their wildest imagination just by working for the heavenly realms. The book attempts to nudge the reader to further explore the soul and the many adventures that await those who choose to follow the path back to the light. Michael wishes to pass on the wisdom he has acquired for the benefit of helping other light beings evolve and return the surface of Mother Earth back to the light. By believing in ones self, the reader can be elevated in a direction that, out of faith and the power of love, comes only magical good in ones life. Believing is seeing, not the other way round, as we have been taught. Following this parameter, the initiated and dedicated student of light begins to believe in himself and to find the clues, answers, which open doors for them. Belief is part of your consciousness; your soul already knows whom one is. Now is the time of your remembering!

Book Short Summary:

To Life brings to paper the author’s thirty-year journey of inner and outer exploration. It aims to support the readers toward the way back home and to ultimately contribute to humanity and our planet. The author recognises that it is only by means of each individual coming home that personal lives can be enriched and bettered and that hope can be brought to today’s troubled world and humanity. To Life asks the essential questions about life, humanity, and individual existence—questions that must be asked if we are to live consciously, meaningfully, joyfully, and fully and be whole and at peace with ourselves, with each other, and with all life on this planet. To Life is not only inspirational but also practical. The nature of an inner journey with its potential joys and trials unveils as the author takes the readers by the hand, supports, encourages, and guides them toward taking the steps required to make their own discoveries and to realise who they are at essence as human beings and as the individuals they are. Indeed, they are shown the path back home. These steps include the unveiling of the human condition with its gifts and pitfalls, the discovery of one’s centre and learning how to stay with it, the unveiling of the mystery of life’s experiences, of one’s feelings and thoughts and learning how to be with them, and the realisation of the true power, freedom, and love within.

Book Short Summary:

The amazing, historic journey of Jews and Christians coming together. In this book Philip Cunningham traces the remarkable developments in Catholic-Jewish relations over the last fifty years. Centuries of antipathy and suspicion, Cunningham says, have largely given way to a new, mutually enriching relationship between the two traditions of Judaism and Catholicism. A specialist in Christian-Jewish relations, Cunningham recounts the amazing, historic journey of Jews and Christians coming together in light of both Scripture and theology, covering the period from Vatican II up to the present day. After fifty years of significant dialogue, Cunningham suggests, Catholics and Jews are now on the threshold of building true shalom between their two communities, experiencing the Holy One anew in each other's distinctive and edifying ways of walking with God.

Book Short Summary:

This is the story of Daniel—our adopted son from China. He traveled across the world to experience the love of a family, and ultimately touched thousands of lives when his mission on earth ended earlier than we’d planned, and he left us for Heaven. This is not just the story of a child who died, but rather a tribute to a little boy who really, honestly lived. Yes, it’s true that, ultimately, we lost our son. But we know how blessed we were to have met him, loved him, and to have been given the gift of time with his sweet soul. We know that God is good, and though our pain and suffering are sure, the reality remains that Daniel is safe in the arms of our Lord. How blessed we are that—even though it was for such a short time—God entrusted us as Daniel’s loving family before He called our son Home to Heaven.

Book Short Summary:

Called is the heart-breaking, humorous, and refreshingly honest account of one twenty-something's adventure of learning what it means to be called by God—an adventure that took him to England, C. S. Lewis's house, and back again—and why it was only in the reality of his worst nightmare that he learned what it means to be called. What is it like to be "called" by God for a particular purpose? What can you learn for your own life of faith from such a calling? Through a series of personal anecdotes, illuminating conversations, and candid reflections, Called brings you face-to-face not only with the world of C. S. Lewis, but also with the very real peaks and valleys of pursuing a calling. Seeking to reclaim the uniquely Christian sense of calling, Pemberton shows that God's call cannot be reduced to one's dreams, skills, or passions, vividly and powerfully illustrating how Christ turns ideas of failure and success on their head. Called will encourage you to realize God has entered into your story, calling out to you anew each day with the words, "Follow me," leaving you to ask, Will I be obedient to the calling set before me?

Pain is painted on the canvas of our lives in a myriad of forms. But how can there be purpose through pain and lessons to be learned? In a deeply spiritual presentation, Ann Beckham Gainey details her incredible experiences as a simple medical procedure triggered a years-long jumbled journey through pain to purpose. While revealing her prayers, conversations with God, and applicable scriptures, Ann leads others down an inspirational path where the Lord revealed himself in unexpected ways to her open heart, even as she hung on for dear life when the deceiver of her soul relentlessly nipped at her heels and tempted her to give up.

The God Chair shares the inspirational true story of one woman’s journey from the darkness of pain and frustration into the light of re-creation, healing, blessings, and ultimately, her purpose. ...Ann’s ... heart for hurting people adds an extraordinary grace that will touch your heart and give you hope. —Jentezen Franklin, New York Times bestselling author and pastor When I first met Ann Gainey I was so impressed by her energy that I nicknamed her “fireball Ann.” You, or someone you know, will be blessed and encouraged by her testimony. —Cal Thomas, Syndicated Columnist

Book Short Summary:

The Journey God Chose is told by a man who at an early age had a heart that yearned after God. In the process of surrendering his life to Christ, he came to realize the truth contained in Proverb 16:9 New International Reader’s Version—In your heart you plan your life. But the Lord decides where your steps will take you. He realized that each day of his life journey was ordered not by him but by his Heavenly Father. Al Brock’s story is intensely personal. It is an open and honest look at his struggles from early childhood with feelings of jealousy, inadequacy, and inferiority as he became aware of physical limitations not shared by his identical twin brother. As well, he struggled with feelings of lack of acceptance by his father, again because of his limitations. Al’s brother, Pete, was always chosen first to be on athletic teams while Al was chosen last. Pete became the star quarterback of the high school football team while Al himself served as the team’s water boy. He grew up in an environment of fear because of his father’s alcoholism and violent rages when intoxicated. And then his father was gone when Al was only nine years of age, succumbing to the ravages of his drinking. This left the family of mother and four children to cope with no ready source of money during the years of the Great Depression. Al’s life verse could be thought of as Romans 8:28 (NIRV): We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him. He appointed them to be saved in keeping with his purpose. This verse is a thread running throughout the story of his life. It is evident from childhood on as the family overcame the challenges of going forward without the father. Continued evidence is seen throughout—from his military service during WWII, through his calling to the ministry and his education, in the answer to prayer that provided his wife, and on into his later years. Every life that came in contact with Al Brock’s was met with a commitment by him to closeness and lasting friendship. God used that to bring those he and Bunny met closer in their desire for the Lord. The churches he served grew both in membership and spiritually. A monumental change occurred for Al with the stirring of the Holy Spirit for a full surrender of his life. God gave him a life-changing experience of memory for repressed events with subsequent healing of past hurts done to him, and by him to others. The result was a Baptism of the Holy Spirit into the fullness and freshness of a new spiritual calling and personal walk with God. The lives of those he came in contact with were changed to an even greater degree with the fullness of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. This became a priority in churches he served and in special groups of people. The Spirit of the Lord was seen to change individual lives as well as the collective life of the churches he and Bunny were called to serve. Al Brock is one of the few men I have come in contact with who has turned sorrow and disappointment into a stepping stone to knowing God in a richer and deeper walk and the Holy Spirit’s control. Bunny faithfully served along with him in every calling that they had together. His children “rise and call him blessed.” So do the many close friends he and Bunny made during the years that they served in the ministry. It was a pleasure for me and my wife, Diane, to come to know him and his loving wife through helping to put his life story into words on paper. Hopefully lives will continue to be changed by those who read these words, even though you may not have the joy of being in contact with him through personal relationship or ministry.

Book Short Summary:

Experience the morning homilies of Pope Francis and witness how he continues to change the life of the Catholic Church. Shortly after seven in the morning, Pope Francis gives a brief homily in the little Vatican chapel of Saint Martha, in front of an audience that is always different: gardeners, office workers, nuns and priests, as well as a growing group of journalists. It is a set appointment, and in some ways a revolutionary innovation, where a pope speaks to everyone, off the cuff, without any written text, as he would have done as a parish priest. Encountering Truth is a collection of highlights from these homilies from March 2013 to May 2014. Along with summaries by Radio Vaticana (who recorded and transcribed the homilies) and commentary by Father Antonio Spadaro, SJ, these reflections provide moments of inspiration, simplicity, and a glimpse into the papal world very few ever get to experience.

Book Short Summary:

How can anyone who woke from an open heart procedure revealing a malignant tumor instead of a benign tumor pen these words, “It’s ok, I’m all right?” At age fifty-four I could confidently pen those words. My faith had already been through multiple challenges. Going through chemotherapy was not going to be easy. But, some of the other challenges I had faced earlier in my life weren’t easy either. Was I disappointed? Greatly! No one looks forward to chemotherapy. The tumor had grown eight times its size. It had eaten into my heart, my vocal chord nerves and the nerves for my shoulder. Some said, we just knew you would be healed. You were anointed at church. Had God let me down? No. My family and I could have gotten worse news. My faith still held. Eight years later I faced an even greater battle. This is my story.
