Features: * The story of the Bible ... in its own words * Events, characters, and teachings of the Bible arranged chronologically After Judas left, Jesus gave the disciples a glimpse of what was to come. He foreshadowed the fact that he was going to be 'broken' and 'poured out'---he was going to take humanity's punishment for sin on himself. While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, 'Take and eat; this is my body.' Then he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, 'Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.' Jesus warned his disciples that he would be with them only a little while longer. He went on to comfort his confused followers. 'Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. My Father's house has plenty of room; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.' Thomas said to him, 'Lord, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know the way?' Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.'

Summary Book Review Who Wrote the Bible? by Richard Friedman:

Download or read book Who Wrote the Bible? written by Richard Friedman and published by Simon & Schuster. This book was released on 2019-01-01 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A much anticipated reissue of Who Wrote the Bible?—the contemporary classic the New York Times Book Review called “a thought-provoking [and] perceptive guide” that identifies the individual writers of the Pentateuch and explains what they can teach us about the origins of the Bible. For thousands of years, the prophet Moses was regarded as the sole author of the first five books of the Bible, known as the Pentateuch. According to tradition, Moses was divinely directed to write down foundational events in the history of the world: the creation of humans, the worldwide flood, the laws as they were handed down at Mt. Sinai, and the cycle of Israel’s enslavement and liberation from Egypt. However, these stories—and their frequent discrepancies—provoke questions: why does the first chapter in Genesis say that man and woman were made in God’s image, while the second says that woman was made from man’s rib? Why does one account of the flood say it lasted forty days, while another records no less than one hundred? And why do some stories reflect the history of southern Judah, while others seem sourced from northern Israel? Originally published in 1987, Richard Friedman’s Who Wrote the Bible? joins a host of modern scholars who show that the Pentateuch was written by at least four distinct voices—separated by borders, political alliances, and particular moments in history—then connected by brilliant editors. Rather than cast doubt onto the legitimacy of the Bible, Friedman uses these divergent accounts to illuminate a text that was written by real people. Friedman’s seminal and bestselling text is a comprehensive and authoritative answer to the question: just who exactly wrote the Bible?

Book excerpt: An In-Depth Look at Bible Translation ·The concerns, issues, and approaches ·The history ·The ins and outs of the translation task With a reach that covers the entire globe, the Bible is the best-selling, most earnestly studied book of all time. It has been translated into well over 1,000 languages, from those of global reach such as English, French, and Arabic, to a myriad of isolated tribal tongues. Yet while most readers of the English Bible have a favorite version, few understand how the different translations came about, or why there are so many, or what determines whether a particular translation is trustworthy. Written in tribute to one of today’s true translation luminaries, Dr. Ronald Youngblood, The Challenge of Bible Translation will open your eyes to the principles, the methods, the processes, and the intricacies of translating the Bible into language that communicates clearly, accurately, and powerfully to readers of many countries and cultures. This remarkable volume marshals the contributions of foremost translators and linguists. Never before has a single book shed so much light on Bible translation in so accessible a fashion. In three parts, this compendium gives scholars, students, and interested Bible readers an unprecedented grasp of: 1. The Theory of Bible Translation 2. The History of Bible Translation 3. The Practice of Bible Translation The Challenge of Bible Translation will give you a new respect for the diligence, knowledge, and care required to produce a good translation. It will awaken you to the enormous cost some have paid to bring the Bible to the world. And it will deepen your understanding of and appreciation for the priceless gift of God’s written Word.

Book excerpt: At the age of seventeen, Joseph, the favorite son of Jacob, faces the wrath of jealousy, hatred, and deceit from his own brothers. He is thrust into a world of slavery, lust, and power. Joseph experiences a culture so different from his own that he must adapt quickly just to survive. He learns to trust in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and be content in the difficult circumstances that challenge him far too often. Narrated by Joseph, Faith-Joseph's Story communicates the power of this young man's faith-faith that began in the midst of a plot to murder him and ends with his rise to power in Egypt. It shows the perseverance one must find to overcome the negative experiences that happen in life, and it provides a testament to the importance of placing complete faith and trust in God. With Bible study materials and a leader's guide included, Faith-Joseph's Story tells how, from the depths of a pit, to the darkness of prison, to the grandeur of a palace, a young man remains committed to God's divine plan.

Summary Book Review The Mysterious Furies of the God in a Tent by David Anton:

Download or read book The Mysterious Furies of the God in a Tent written by David Anton and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2009-04-15 with total page 164 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It is unusual for a novelist to choose God for the main ghost character of his book. Yet any truly literate reader of the Hebrew Bible will discover that the Bible is a literary book whose central character is the personality of God. The Bible opens with His revealing his powerful presence by saying “In the beginning,” and going on to declaim who He is and what He has done. All the central episodes of the Biblical stories, while involving narrations of those who peopled his plans and activities, are centered on his words and his deeds. These are the main elements of the Bible even though human stories abound. Indeed, on can posit that this book is an extraordinarily long, one act drama in which there is only one character who soliloquizes his experiences of being the Father of the universe. He retells with great emotional involvement what happened to Him when He decided to make a natural world full of creatures and then decided to add surrogate beings to share it with Him. Here the soliloquy becomes very dramatic because humans rebelled in their very first instance of their being and thus became alien to him. He became angry, took destructive actions that demonstrated his powers but often produced compliance driven by fear. Despite this blemish, He tells the reader He was not ready to let go of His absolute Fatherhood. So He began to undertake prodigious but eventually frustrating efforts to win human love and allegiance. He chose one tribal family as His witness to His supreme divinity. His strategic goal was to specially develop a family covenant with a chosen people; He would be their one and only Father- counselor in all aspects their of lives. In return He would give them their own tribal land and a kingdom. It was a troubled covenant. This tactic brought Him into many human conflicts that forced Him to become variously a liberator, a general, a destroyer, even a conqueror and executioner, often a peace maker. His plan succeeded for a period, His wishes fulfilled. At least one human tribe truly witnessed Him and Him only. But again the human side of the covenant failed, His chosen people dispersed once more into the spiritual deserts of the alien world. So full of sadness, frustration, and disappointment, the voice of the divine soliloquist falls into near silence. His soliloquy is now remembered through the echoed, hailing words handed over to his prophets. The ghost text of this Divine comedy was written down in a book called the Bible. Can these third person words have their divine author’s mysterious, furious powers of his Word? The novel, “The Mysterious God in a Tent,” is about the spiritual struggle that occurs when a very dedicated reader, near his death, encounters this powerful Biblical soliloquy, the voice of a deific personality whose voice is the essence of this story-- the majesty of words and the Word.

Book excerpt: # Do you know what it takes to be successful in business as well as in life itself? ##In this Biblical self-help success book, the author contends that God has several principles, which if followed can lead to success either in business or in life itself. He further contends that although many of these same principles may be found among the motivational speakers and thinkers of today and yesterday, that they were originally derived from Holy Scripture, whether or not these spokespersons are aware of it. He points to Jesus' parables to show that not everyone who preaches or practices Kingdom principles will be found to be in the Kingdom at the end. The 17 chapters of this book contain 17 articles relating to 17 of these principles. Knowing your purpose forgetting the past conquering fear believing focusing sowing and reaping resting and 10 others. (For a complete list of the principles included in this work, check the "Table of Contents.") Each chapter has a Quotable Quotes section with quotes from famous people past and present, including the Bible writers There are also examples, positive and negative, of these principles in the lives of characters from the author's novel, Of Such Is The Kingdom, A Novel of Biblical Times. So this book and the novel make perfect companion volumes for each other.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Twilight saga has become one of the most successful fiction series ever written, with more than one hundred million copies in print and several blockbuster films. Despite the tremendous commercial success Twilight has generated, few readers have analyzed its theological teachings or the messages Stephenie Meyer might be sending to women and teenage girls. This book offers both a feminist critique of Twilight and a theological review of the stories' ideas about salvation, heaven and hell, power, reconciliation, resurrection, and organized religion. Elaine Heath writes in an accessible voice, calling attention to both the "good news" of Twilight's theology and the "bad news" of its gender stereotypes and depictions of violence against women. The book includes questions for youth and adult groups or for classroom discussions.

Download or read book Romancing God written by Lynn S. Neal and published by Univ of North Carolina Press. This book was released on 2006-12-08 with total page 264 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the world of the evangelical romance novel, sex and desire are mitigated by an omnipresent third party--the divine. Thus romance is not just an encounter between lovers, but a triangle of affection: man, woman, and God. Although this literature is often disparaged by scholars and pastors alike, inspirational fiction plays a unique and important role in the religious lives of many evangelical women. In an engaging study of why women read evangelical romance novels, Lynn S. Neal interviews writers and readers of the genre and finds a complex religious piety among ordinary people. In evangelical love stories, the success of the hero and heroine's romance rests upon their religious choices. These fictional religious choices, readers report, often inspire real spiritual change in their own lives. Amidst the demands of daily life or during a challenge to one's faith, these books offer a respite from problems and a time for fun, but they also provide a means to cultivate piety and to appreciate the unconditional power of God's love. The reading of inspirational fiction emerges from and reinforces an evangelical lifestyle, Neal argues, but women's interpretations of the stories demonstrate the constant negotiations that characterize evangelical living. Neal's study of religion in practice highlights evangelicalism's aesthetic sensibility and helps to alter conventional understandings--both secular and religious--of this prominent subculture.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The reader of this book is hereby warned that this informative book is somewhat a loaded manuscript that reviews religio-spiritual affirmations in an uncompromising manner. It is broad and thus requires open mindedness. The reader is also made aware right here at the outset that this book is not written by puppets of conventional religio - spiritual vanguards. This book is an introduction to rational Comparative Religiology. It informs about the reason why created (expanded into) The Whole All as already mentioned supra. History informs us that the living being (soul) in the human form experienced fulfillment and unfulfillment coexistence in the materio-physical existence of God TUDB under control by Ishvara (the ultimate Divine controller of The Whole All in every respect), and embarked on various endeavours (theistically and atheistically) in pursued to escape from unfulfillment (evilness) see www.worldreligions.com for such pursuits by theists. Secret Societies (e. g Freemasons, Priory of Sion, Knights Templar, Zionists, Opus Dei, The Popes Armada, The Illuminati, etc) were not reviewed in this book though these secret societies play their roles in the religio-spirituality of humanity. The reader may visit http://www.thecrowhouse.com and may also search for Conspiracies of Life on YouTube and learn about things that would evoke his or her consciousness about the complex nature of Life. We urged God TUDB in tautology to salvage us from those who might be irritated / upset / angered / challenged by the manner in which we rationalized on sacred matters in this book.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Books of the Bible New Testament is a revolutionary new presentation of Scripture that strips away centuries of artificial formatting, leaving behind nothing but pure Bible text. The result is a Bible unlike any other available today, but more like the original Scriptures. The Books of the Bible is specially designed to be read from start to finish, as if you were reading a novel. Natural literary breaks have been restored and the books have been rearranged chronologically, rather than by length, leading to a more authentic presentation of the Bible. There is also a helpful introduction to each book that sets the text in context, rather than adding explanation or application. The NIV text is also set in single-column format, rather than in two columns as you usually find in the Bible. This aids reading longer chunks at a time, as you would if you were reading a novel for pleasure. Community Bible Experience is about changing the way we read God's Word. By following the reading plan found online at biblica.com/cbent, you'll experience the whole New Testament in just eight weeks. Why not gather together as a book club to share the journey rather than reading in isolation. You'll glimpse more of the Bible's context than ever before. And your entire church community will rally around the one thing that matters most: God's Word. For more information, and for free accompanying resources, visit www.biblicaeurope.com/cbent

This is a book of a human being who was challenged by evil and death in the world, and the human being called on his existence for help and protection.
