Books Description:

‘Human evolution has now arrived at a decisive crossroads. The future of humankind on Earth depends on whether people recognize their determining role in the evolution of the consciousness of Earth.’ – Marko Pogačnik Humanity today faces a unique task: to overcome the thousand-year-old division between heaven and earth, spirit and matter. This, says Marko Pogačnik, is our present-day challenge. But we have an important ally in this work in the being of Jesus, also known as Christ, whose teachings are intended to help us at this critical time of human development. Historically, however, Jesus’ words of wisdom were harnessed to the construction of an earthly religion, and much of their deeper meaning was lost in the process. Christ Power and Earth Wisdom is the story of the author’s discovery of a ‘Fifth Gospel’, woven invisibly into the four canonical Gospels. It teaches humanity how to live positively in the third millennium. Bringing together knowledge of elemental beings, Earth science and Christ, the author has translated over one hundred of Jesus’ sayings into a language that the modern mind can understand. He identifies blockages in the Biblical gospels that have prevented the Spirit of Christ from manifesting in the past era. But the time is now ripe for understanding the multilayered reality of these teachings. Based on methods of investigation and perception that Pogačnik has developed over many decades of work in healing the various dimensions of Earth’s landscape and nature, he deciphers the hidden, holistic messages in Christ’s teachings, dismantling the obstacles that have arisen through outdated interpretations. The text is complemented with Pogacnik’s energetically-charged drawings, forming a feeling counterpart to the thought flow of the book. A new Postscript offers an important update relating to methods of gaining a broader, spiritual perception of reality in the present.

Books Description:

“There are five Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John...and the Christian. But most people never read the first four.” There are any number of books on how to do evangelism. This book is different—it’s an invitation to actually live out the message of the gospel. Jesus’s original intention was for ordinary people like you and me to live lives that point others to the only Person who can give them hope for this life as well as the next—to visibly display the Good News of salvation through the Messiah and Redeemer of humankind. But many Christ followers today are either ridden with guilt for not telling others about Jesus or so silent that no one really knows they’re a Christian. The Fifth Gospel will help you wrestle with the critical issues involved in living out your faith in front of a watching and sometimes not-so-friendly world. Isn’t it time to become a witness for the One you profess to love? Prepare yourself to represent your Savior well and to discover a new way to do evangelism. Get ready for God to unleash the gospel through you!

Books Description:

From his clairvoyant reading of the supersensible Akashic Record - the cosmic memory of all events, actions and thoughts - Rudolf Steiner was able to speak of aspects of the life of Jesus Christ which are not contained in the four biblical Gospels. Such research, in that it is not based on historical records or extant documents, can be spoken of as a 'Fifth Gospel'. Steiner speaks, for example, of Jesus' life in the community of the Essenes, the temptation of Christ in the wilderness, and of a significant conversation between Jesus and Mary.

Books Description:

In December 1945, at the base of cliffs that run along the Nile River near the modern-day town of Nag Hammadi, an Egyptian farmer discovered, in a sealed jar, thirteen ancient Coptic codices containing more than fifty separate tracts. This discovery represented arguably the most significant manuscript discovery of the twentieth century for the study of the New Testament and Christian origins. Of all the texts in this Nag Hammadi Library, none has been more celebrated than the Gospel of Thomas--a Gospel that has played a crucial role in the newly emerging view of early Christianity as a very diverse phenomenon and in the recent revival of historical Jesus studies. Now, after more than fifty years of study, the best text and the best translation of Thomas are presented here in user-friendly form by the Berlin Working Group for Coptic Gnostic Writings, with Stephen J. Patterson and James M. Robinson. In addition, two essays have been included for persons who may be unfamiliar with this new Gospel or with events that led to its discovery and publication. The first, by Patterson, is a general introduction to the Gospel of Thomas as it appears fifty years after its discovery. The second, by Robinson, tells the fascinating story of that discovery itself by one who was directly involved in bringing this new Gospel to light. An annotated list "for further reading" completes the volume. Stephen J. Patterson is Associate Professor of New Testament at Eden Theological Seminary and author of The God of Jesus: The Historical Jesus and the Search for Meaning (Trinity Press). James M. Robinson is the former director of the Institute for Antiquity and Christianity, Professor Emeritus at The Claremont Graduate School, and editor of The Nag Hammadi Library.

Books Description:

Today’s biblical scholars and dogmaticians are giving a significant amount of attention to the topic of theological exegesis. A resource turned to for guidance and insight in this discussion is the history of interpretation, and Karl Barth’s voice registers loudly as a helpful model for engaging Scripture and its subject matter. Most readers of Barth’s theological exegesis encounter him on the level of his New Testament exegesis. This is understandable from several different vantage points. Unfortunately, Barth’s theological exegesis of the Old Testament has not received the attention it deserves. This book seeks to fill this lacuna as it encounters Barth’s theological exegesis of Isaiah in the Church Dogmatics. From the Church’s inception, Isaiah has been understood as Christian Scripture. In the Church Dogmatics we find Barth reading Isaiah in multi-functional and multi-layered ways as he seeks to hear Isaiah as a living witness to God’s triune revelation of himself in Jesus Christ.

Indulgencies started the down fall of the church in the seventh century. Now, it is the Rosary or Novena in praying to Saints, which started in the 13th century and is still continuing. God forbid! Mary cannot be the Queen of Heaven because Jesus is her son. And if Mary is the Queen of Heaven than incest has occurred in Heaven by the Living God. God forbid!

Books Description:

TOP SECRET Many a pulse-pounding story of high adventure has begun with a young military officer volunteering for a dangerous top secret mission, but no mission was ever like this. It was the most carefully guarded secret since the Manhattan Project. It was incredible, impossible, and inconceivable. It was time travel. From the opening scene, when O’Brien lands his jet fighter at a desert Air Force base in Nevada to find a mysterious stranger in black waiting for him, to the very last page, Fifth Gospel is compelling. O’Brien’s trip is a modern day quest for the Holy Grail, only a thousand times more exciting because he is not searching for an artifact, but is being sent to make contact with one of the most important figures in all human history—to speak with a man who was crucified two millennia ago. Join him as he journeys through time and space to meet Jesus of Nazareth face to face.

Books Description:

Louis Segond, est un pasteur protestant et théologien qui, à la demande de la Compagnie des Pasteurs de Genève, a traduit la Bible en français à partir des textes originaux hébreux et grecs, la traduction Segond. La traduction de l'Ancien Testament a été publiée par étape et s'est échelonnée sur une dizaine d'années, le recueil complet est paru en 1873. C'est en 1880 que le Nouveau Testament complet voit le jour. Louis Segond ne voulait pas que de son vivant on touche à sa traduction, mais il avait fait savoir qu'après son décès, les éditeurs pourraient faire ce qu'ils voudraient. C'est donc après sa mort, en 1909, qu'une révision de son travail a été envisagée, ce qui a abouti à la version de 1910. Extrait : Dieu dit : Que la lumière soit ! Et la lumière fut. Dieu vit que la lumière était bonne ; et Dieu sépara la lumière d'avec les ténèbres. Dieu appela la lumière jour, et il appela les ténèbres nuit. Ainsi, il y eut un soir, et il y eut un matin : ce fut le premier jour. Dieu dit : Qu'il y ait une étendue entre les eaux, et qu'elle sépare les eaux d'avec les eaux. Et Dieu fit l'étendue, et il sépara les eaux qui sont au-dessous de l'étendue d'avec les eaux qui sont au-dessus de l'étendue. Et cela fut ainsi. Dieu appela l'étendue ciel. Ainsi, il y eut un soir, et il y eut un matin : ce fut le second jour.

Books Description:

L'Evangile selon Thomas fut découvert en 1945 aux environs de Nag Hammadi. C'est une collection de 114 logia ou "paroles nues" attribuées à Jésus le Vivant. Cet Evangile fut diversement reçu parla critique, si bien qu'à peine sorti de terre, il fut de nouveau recouvert par le sable mouvant des gloses et des polémiques... Mais la parole respirait sous la cendre... II importait d'y retrouver l'étincelle cachée afin d'y réveiller - comme au jour de Pentecôte - le feu de son âme. Cette nouvelle traduction, suivie de son commentaire, n'a pas d'autre but. Elle est dédiée à tous ceux pour qui Evangile signifie Amour et Connaissance, invitation à la Liberté.
