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.
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?

The author is a human being who lost faith in God and called on Planet Earth to do work and save human beings from evil and death in the world. 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. The author did not like to die in the world and told his existence that he did not want to die, because the author believed that Planet Earth has the power to save human beings in the world. The Existence is the faith, the hope, and the charity that God challenged human beings to find and tell the mountain of evil and death to move away from human beings.

Download or read book Living in God's Word written by Sidney St James and published by . This book was released on 2020-05-18 with total page 294 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Books 4 and 5 Compiled into Book 7 of the Faith Chronicles GENESIS ...imagine stepping onto the shoreline and finding out it's Heaven Have you ever read your Bible and stop, go back to the beginning and reread it? Do you ever find that there is no wow? No impact. No overwhelming thought that strikes you because it is so hard to understand. You're not alone. Memories growing up with my grandmother, the Reverend Ada Caston Slaton Bonds, shed complete light on the many Books of the Bible. She was a great storyteller, just like Jesus, when he spread the word of God in parables. Be it Easter, Mother's Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving, or Christmas, she always had a story to tell and practiced her Sunday morning sermons preaching her discourse to my brothers and me just outside Mansfield, Louisiana. No longer do you or your children have to read the Bible until something "hits" you. My first novel in the Sunday School Series portrays a fresh approach to the scriptures...a down to earth storytelling of the words of God beginning with, well, the beginning. The writings in the Book of Genesis have sometimes been referred to as the seed plot of the entire Bible. As complicated as it could be in scripture form, most of the major doctrines of the Bible are introduced to all of us in this so-called seed form in this book. Along with the fall of mankind, God's promise of salvation and redemption are put in plain words in this first novel in the Sunday School Series of the Holy Book. The doctrines of creation, the accusation of sin, justification, grace, faith, and much more are all addressed in this Book of origins. HALLELUJAH - He is Not Here; He Has Risen. Jesus Christ is the most well-known name in the world! He is the only man to have walked the earth, and his story told to in hundreds upon hundreds of different ways over the last two thousand years. No matter who you talk to, everyone has heard about him and his many miracles and his deeds. Since little was written about Jesus in his first thirty years, this novel will begin when he was first baptized by John the Baptist, a cousin of Jesus. If we take a close look at the Gospels, a comprehensive picture emerges of Jesus Christ. In these writings, there's no gentle Jesus meek and mild, but more so a person so dynamic and so inspiring that even hardcore fisherman, Roman soldiers, strict tax collectors, and a man with one of the foremost intellects of his day, the apostle Paul, were all standing in line to put their reputations out on the line in order to follow Christ. Our exciting story begins on Jesus' thirtieth birthday. We do know, however, that before this, Jesus was born in Bethlehem. His mother Mary is believed to have had Jesus through immaculate conception. The life story told in this novel begins, primarily, with the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist. It was at this time John announced that Jesus was, in fact, the Son of God. Secondly, Jesus finds his first three followers, better known as his disciples. There were finally twelve disciples who accompanied Jesus until the end of his life on the earth. The ministry of Jesus is characterized by many extraordinary and miraculous actions. At his Sermon on the Mount, he delivered the Beatitudes, which were spiritual teachings of compassion, humility, and love. He fed the hungry. He healed the sick. The more miracles he performed, the more people followed him and listened to his teachings attentively. The life of the Lord is paramount to all Christians in every walk of life. Every Christian should know about the life of Jesus Christ and the ministry of his spiritual leadership.
