Books Description:

It is considered by many scholars to be part of the "Pseudepigrapha", historical biblical works that are considered to be fiction. This stigma, prevented its inclusion in the compilation of the Holy Bible. Its a written history of what happened in the days of Adam and Eve after they were cast out of the garden. Considered to be pseudepigraphic by some, it carries significant meaning and insight into events of that time. Its simply an account handed down by word of mouth, from generation to generation, linking the time the first human life was created to the time it was finally written down. This version is the work of unknown Egyptians. The lack of historical allusion makes it difficult to date the writing, however, using other pseudepigraphical works as a reference, it was probably written a few hundred years before the birth of Christ. Parts of this version are found in the Jewish Talmud, and the Islamic Koran, showing what a vital role it played in the original literature of human wisdom.

Books Description:

Theology is for everyone. Everyone is a theologian of sorts. Theology simply means thinking about God and expressing those thoughts in some way. But sloppy theology is a problem. As Christians, our thoughts about God need to coincide with what He has said about Himself in the Bible. With his clear understanding of the Scriptures and unpretentious writing style, Charles Ryrie has written Basic Theology for every student of God's Word, from the devotional student to the seminary student. Ryrie's name has become synonymous with dispensational theology and his texts on the subject invaluable to the Bible scholar. Now Ryrie's Basic Theology is available to you from Moody Press, the company that brings you the Ryrie Study Bible. Featuring charts, definitions, and Scripture and subject indices, Basic Theology will give you a clear and comprehensive picture of Ryrie's approach to systematic theology. Its 94 chapters are arranged in outline style for easy reference. Considerable emphasis is given to explaining the dispensational view of the end times.

Books Description:

How do some people do it? They rise above the circumstances and distractions of life and remain consistently happy. Even in tough times they have a quiet sense of peace about them. Examining the Bible and her own life, Katie Orr has discovered that deep happiness and satisfaction are only possible when we are rooted in God and pursuing his good and specific purpose for each of us. Secrets of the Happy Soul is your invitation into a deeper, more fruitful relationship with God and his Word. As Katie walks you through key teachings from the book of Psalms, you will recognize how the world's definition of happiness pales compared to the daily delights God has in store for you. Draw closer to him, and your soul will go from lonely to connected, from overwhelmed to level and led, from aimless to commissioned and unique. God doesn't promise a storm-free life, but he is the anchor every happy soul needs.

The Cave of Treasures

Books Description:

This text is attributed to Ephrem Syrus, who was born at Nisibis soon after AD 306 and died in 373, but it is now generally believed that its current form is 6th century or newer. The assertion that the Cave of Treasures was written in the 4th century is supported by the general contents of the work. These reproduce Ephrem's peculiar methods of exegesis and supply many examples of his methods in religious argument, with which we are familiar from his other writings. His pride in the antiquity of the Syriac language also appears in this work. That it was written in Mesopotamia by a Syrian, there is no doubt, and if Ephrem was not the original author, or perhaps later editor, belonged to the school of Ephrem. The oldest Christian work on the history of God's dealing with man from Adam to Christ is probably the anonymous Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan, which, in its original form, is from the 5th or 6th century AD. The writer of the Cave of Treasures borrowed largely from the Conflict of Adam and Eve, or shared a common source with it.

Books Description:

Collected and Translated by Montague Rhodes James. There are many ancient, lost books relating to the Bible and this work covers the ones that are most hard to find, dating between 100 BCE and 100 CE. In many cases we do not have the full works, but have various sections and fragments. The author, Montague James, used quotations found mostly in the works of the Greek Ante-Nicene Fathers like Origen, Hippolytus and Clement of Alexandria to piece together what we are missing. He also uses important lists compiled from Greek, Latin and other languages in order to reveal what we know of other missing books that would, in some cases, otherwise be unheard of. This important piece of scholarship should be part of anyone's library who is seriously researching lost and ancient texts.

Books Description:

Adam Martin is not your classic small town physician. He has been involved in research with Nobel Prize winning laboratories and has a PhD in genetics. The small town of Wilford Fork has given him more than a practice in obstetrics and gynecology. It has produced an experience in genetics beyond his wildest imagination. The genetics of the Bible from Noah to the 21st Century, take him on a journey from ancient Babylon to the New Babel. His journey is not without the love of his life, who becomes more than a nurse, as he experiences life in a small Southern town. Her influence, intelligence and beauty take him into the new age commune and to the edge of idolatry. Even his partners move him toward the destiny of Bible genetics that have influenced everyone from the Church to the evil of Adolph Hitler. New Babel is the modern commune in the Southern town that is patterned after ancient Babylon. It is here that the young obstetrician learns about the delivery of infants that were never encountered in the Ivory Tower medical school. The Sons of God, in this powerful new community can change both mankind, and the young physician, showing him the dark side of research. Babylon throughout history has been the site of wild creation and will lead to the end times mentioned in Biblical Revelation with the prostitute of Babylon riding on a dragon. The Sons of God of New Babel, just like their predecessors in the Old Testament who led the world to the flood, will lead the world toward the final apocalypse.

Books Description:

In a world of technological revelations and human genius, organized religions continue to hold on to the element of faith. There are many religious questions that are satisfactorily answered in science, yet conveniently ignored by the faithful. Amidst the numerous scientific breakthroughs of the 21st Century, some still see science as the opposite of religion, even when the evidence is convincing that the two are complementary. Evolution of Darkness invites its readers to step out of the box to consider a few ideas on the dogmas that dominate religious thoughts and influences. On Christmas Eve 2012, I was invited to a candle lighting ceremony when it struck me that the Darkness we were driving out sat at the center of the flames we were holding in our hands. In other words, the Darkness in the center of the candle was responsible for the flame that provided the light in the room. This discovery enhanced my perception that the Darkness we see is the color of the energy that permeates the cosmos. Evolution of Darkness contends that this energy is intelligent and is the only authority capable of creating and sustaining this universe we live in. Every aspect of life, whether animate or inanimate, represents an expression of the Evolution of Darkness. The only legitimate expression of the God of creation is Darkness/Energy. Everything from electromagnetism to righteousness and faith are attributes of Dark Energy. From a realistic perspective, the Creator of this violent system is not a morally good God, but a God who has created a system that satisfies His needs. Everything we see around us is necessary and creates the perfect balance for the constant operation of the universe.

HEROES AND HOUSEHOLDERS pays tribute to Allen Ginsberg, Frank O'Hara, Edward Field, Joan Larkin, and James Schuyler, and documents the life of an ordinary, everyday householder in poems critic Marjorie Perloff calls "charming and subtle." Praise for Steve Turtell His poems are shaped with an economy, with a supple control, that recalls the lyrics of W.B. Yeats -- perfectly solid and down to earth, yet floating with a lyric ease. This is an impressive collection. Edward Field Steve Turtells poems are refreshingly direct and unpretentious. Im moved by their generous humanity, their plainspoken, hard-won truths, and the poets deep relishing of his experiences, desired or not. His uncommon craft makes it sound almost simple. Joan Larkin Steve Turtell's poetic voice is at once funny, tender, and tough-minded. His verse is lyrical, his subjects both social and sexual. His intelligence is grounded by a frank and warm-heartedly humane vision, and his eye is uncannily perceptive and true. Kate Christensen
