What happens when a mask becomes the deepest truth, when a lie reveals the greatest love that was ever given? Renaissance historian Joanna Valois and transgendered beauty Sara Falier take us spiraling into the past, from New York City during the Stonewall riots, to Venice under the Inquisition, and finally to NeroÕs Rome. In Venice, they find a sixteenth century heretical book and learn about the woman condemned to death for printing it. The book, a translation of an ancient codex describing the Crucifixion, shattered the lives of nearly everyone who touched it, and 400 years later, could still bring half the world to its knees.

Numbers of the Lord

Biblical numbers have spiritual meaning and this spiritual meaning can also be understood chronologically. How did the Wise Men, for example, know what the Star of Bethlehem meant when it appeared? Is there some formula to relate these numbers to time? The answer is yes. Biblical numbers are part of a brilliant system stating Gods blueprint of the history of His church and of the world. In some cases a code, utilizing the Golden Ratio, even dates the Biblical event recorded in the text in which the numbers are embedded: the birth of Christ for example. In other cases, the numbers project the time the events will occur and are chronological prophecies: the fall of Jerusalem to the Roman general Titus in 70 a.d. or the Moslems sacking New York City in 2001 (9/11). In all cases, this book elucidates the power of God to ordain Time in order to make the history of the world.

God for All

The Biblical Foundation of Universal Grace

God our Savior desires everyone to be saved (1Tim 2:4). Does God get what God wants? Yes, but-- depending on how we read the Bible. The Bible is universal: One God, Sovereign Creator of everything, especially humanity in God's image, God's partner to manage creation. Science and evolution say humanity evolved, gradually acquiring superior capabilities. We have yet to transcend animal nature and acknowledge oneness of creation under God. Humans exploited our semi-divine status, becoming alienated. God chose Israelites/Jews for blessing and reconciling humanity. They exploited chosenness, so God sent the Jew Jesus to reveal God's gracious concern for all people. Roman political and Jewish religious power killed Jesus, but he appeared resurrected to his disciples, who proclaimed him Savior. God gave another Jew, Paul, a vision of Jesus resurrected and appointed him to proclaim God's reconciliation to Gentiles. Paul taught that through the faithfulness of Jesus, Gentiles too become God's people and share Israel's blessings without becoming Jews. All who experience reconciliation share Jesus's partnership with God. We toil and struggle, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe (1 Tim 4:10).

St Augustine, bishop of Hippo, was one of the central figures in the history of Christianity, and City of God is one of his greatest theological works. Written as an eloquent defence of the faith at a time when the Roman Empire was on the brink of collapse, it examines the ancient pagan religions of Rome, the arguments of the Greek philosophers and the revelations of the Bible. Pointing the way forward to a citizenship that transcends the best political experiences of the world and offers citizenship that will last for eternity, City of God is one of the most influential documents in the development of Christianity.

Seeds of Turmoil

The Biblical Roots of the Inevitable Crisis in the Middle East

Author: Bryant Wright

ISBN: 0849949386

A clear, in-depth biblical explanation of the origin, history, and significance of the Middle East conflict. The current conflict in the Middle East began long before the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. It originated when Abraham sinned, distorting God's promise that he and his heirs would make a great nation and inherit the land now called The Holy Land. A historical and political account, Seeds of Turmoil clearly explains the biblical story of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar and the ensuing sibling rivalry between Jacob and Esau, whose choices formed the world's three most influential religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This fascinating insight into the beginnings of the conflict also explains what about the land is so important today. In addition, Wright sheds light on the conflicting Jewish, Christian, and Islamic perspectives and answers the question, Does God play favorites?

Instead of waiting to learn from our own experiences, we can learn from the lives and experiences of others; and the Word of God is for our learning. In this book, you will learn about these women of God.
