              Were you intrigued, but disappointed by The Bible Code? Numerical Secrets of the Bible, written by one of Europe's leading biblical scholars, gives you the actual facts about one of the most important recent discoveries in the field of biblical study, namely that the books of the... Bible are numerical compositions. The biblical writings were not written in an off-hand manner, but were meticulously composed according to compositional techniques in which the counting of words played a crucial role. This discovery has far-reaching consequences for our views on the formation and the structure of the text of the Hebrew Bible and of the Greek text of the New Testament.

              I write haiku when I'm feelin' blue and when love and pain make me want. Join us on a journey through the pain of betrayal, divorce and after... We love the traditional Japanese haiku format of 17 syllables on 3 lines: 5-7-5. It is very symmetrical, terse and disciplined. However..., these are not your great grandfather's haiku. This is Modern American Haiku. We do keep the fundamental format, but that 's all. For one thing, we give them titles, which we believe helps the reader focus on the punch in each haiku. Second, there is word play. Third, there is the extra dimension of the images in which the haiku are embedded or by which they are framed. We believe the reader will be amazed at how well the illustrations deepen the haiku. Ted and Patricia Ted Becker has led many lives: Class clown of his high school. Sports editor of his college newspaper. Consumer researcher for a large Madison Avenue advertising agency. Member of the legal staff for the Attorney General of New Jersey. Military intelligence. Professional graduate student. Itinerant academic. Guerilla theatre producer. Boogyboarder and bodysurfer. Mediator. Online journal editor. Author of 12 books on law, politics and political science. What about poetry? Well, it 's been dormant for most of his life, but there were two previous eruptions. One came in Paris in 1964. The other in Laguna Beach, California in 1969. The third, this haiku stage, is the longest and most serious. It seems to come in waves and intensify. Patricia Lantz is an Atlanta based counseling astrologer whose life has been an amazing journey of discovery. From the windswept prairies of Wyoming, to the coal mines and steel mills of the Ohio Valley, to the beautiful mountains and jagged shores of New England, and finally on to the steamy hot deep South... with many short stops inbetween... she truly considers her life to be an adventure in the human experience of living.

              In this thought-provoking examination of how people encounter God, Wade Howell examines the way humans come in contact with the divine. Howell presents a biblical, theological, and philosophical case for why people, who are physical, can have a relationship with God, who is spiri...t. With an emphasis on centrality of the local church, Howell demonstrates how God designed the church to satisfy the most intimate human needs, which God placed in humans so he could be the source of their fulfillment. With a heart for people and a love for God's church, Howell echoes Augustine in showing why our soul is restless until it finds rest in God through his church. Encountering God through the Church provides a thoughtful analysis of why humans need God, how humans can encounter God, and how God meets those needs in the community of faith that we call church. It is biblically informed, philosophically insightful, and theologically sound. This would be a great volume to give anyone who has doubts about the value of God or his church in one's life. --Steve W. Lemke, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary We were created by God for himself and we are meant to enjoy him forever. Encountering God through the Church demonstrates that God is advancing his kingdom through the church. Howell gives us a powerful reminder that the church is the means by which we encounter God and experience him most fully. I highly recommend this book. --Kenneth Keathley, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary Wade Rutland Howell Jr. is faculty at Florida Gateway College in Lake City, Florida. He has taught theology, philosophy, ethics, and history in the Southeastern United States and has served churches in Florida and Louisiana.

              Wisdom, Knowledge, and Spirituality in Self-defense (Hardback)

              Most of the challenges today's church is experiencing were experienced by the early church in New Testament times. Knowing this makes it possible to handle the challenges of today more effectively and in a way in which perplexity gives way to sober and informed attitudes. This bo...ok brings to the fore the role human sentiments within relational and ministerial dynamics play in creating problems of strife, rivalry, and unhealthy competition among leaders and members of the church, and provides opportunity to reflect on how to stem such negative tendencies. The study reveals the coherence of Paul's arguments in places where many existing commentaries find him digressing. Its focus on Paul's rhetorical strategies and the Greek text helps to clarify a number of issues that remain puzzles in many commentaries. The book also highlights clues in Paul's argument that indicate the direction, the interpretative frame, and the intended rhetorical effect of his arguments, avoiding the unhealthy imposition of general Pauline views on some statements in 1 Corinthians, as found in many books on the market. These, against insightful background in pluralism and complexity of wisdom, knowledge, oratory, persuasion, and inspiration, offer useful lenses that make Paul's argument consistently and coherently meaningful. Kissi's carefully focused, text-based study explores Paul's self-defense in his first letter to the Corinthians from a rhetorical vantage point, noting the interplay between three central, discursive aspects. Working carefully through the biblical text, this engaging investigation opens up the Corinthian situation and context with renewed focus to central Pauline notions, and suggests Paul's enduring significance in the modern day context. --Jeremy Punt, Stellenbosch University, South Africa Seth Kissi is senior lecturer of New Testament at Trinity Theological Seminary.

              Being and Intelligibility
                

              Being and Intelligibility (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              What do we mean when we say that something is? What is the meaning of human experience? These two most elementary philosophical questions have perplexed thinkers for thousands of years. Being and Intelligibility explores them from the simple premise that all entities are essentia...lly logical in their being. The book develops its three central theses: that the beingness of beings, called Being, and the intelligibility of Being are one and the same; that nothingness (i.e., absolute not-Being) is self-contradictory and unintelligible and, therefore, Being is logically necessary; and that the fullness of human rational experience cannot be explained in materially reducible terms and requires recognition of the existence of transcendent reality, which includes God (as self-grounding good will), moral obligation and freedom, and the souls of men. Being and Intelligibility thoroughly investigates the implications of the essential logicality of Being, including that human Being shows itself to itself from within itself as a substantive, persistent, morally obligated unity among the ordered manifold of its life experiences, whose essential Being is orientation toward God.

              The Book of Job (Hardback)

              The book of Job is the most challenging--and most engaging--of all the books in the Hebrew Scriptures. It challenges one's faith in the essential goodness of God and humanity. In this volume, Rabbis Kravitz and Olitzky provide an original, modern translation and commentary while ...also inviting classic rabbinic commentators of the past to provide insight to the text. Along with helping the reader to understand the original Hebrew sources, the authors also strive to answer some of the basic answers of human existence posed by religion: Why is there evil? Why do the good suffer? Why do those who do evil seem to go unpunished? Are acts of goodness rewarded? The Book of Job confronts essential questions of being human: loss and grief, good and evil, and how human beings overcome life's significant challenges. This wise and beautiful book guides the reader through its intricacies, pausing along the way to teach profound lessons both loftily academic and deeply personal. It is a rare and lovely gift to bring ancient traditions to new life in such deeply meaningful and contemporary ways. --Aaron Panken, President, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion This is a remarkably accessible translation and commentary of the storied book of Job that has intrigued numerous generations of readers. Blending solid scholarship with insightful contemporary insights, this book is a must-have for anyone who is serious about their faith or just wants to learn more about the biblical notion of reward and punishment. --Kirk Smith, Episcopal Bishop of Arizona Leonard S. Kravitz is professor emeritus of midrash and homiletics at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR). He is an expert on the medieval philosopher/theologian Moses Maimonides and his Guide for the Perplexed. Kerry M.

              Un jueves de manana en 1981, cuatro mil campesinos, huyendo un escuadron de la muerte salvadoreno patrocinado por los Estados Unidos, trastabillo bajando una ladera por un monte cubierto de follaje, hacia el Rio Lempa. Algunos fueron indiscriminadamente fusilados por las ametrall...adoras de soldados y helicopteros; otros se ahogaron mientras la corriente los arrastraba por el rio. Los demas escaparon para vivir los proximos ocho anos en campamentos de refugiados en Honduras. In 1989 muchos de estos refugiados regresaron a El Salvador como la comunidad repatriada de Valle Nuevo. Companeros relata las historias de una relacion de veinticinco anos de acompanamiento, sanidad, y perdon entre Valle Nuevo y una asociacion de iglesias en los Estados Unidos, las Comunidades de Mision Shalom. Los dos grupos han llegado a adoptar una comunion transnacional entre si a pesar de los abismos economicos, politicos, y espirituales que existen hoy. Esta obra es un esfuerzo colectivo y colaborativo de relatos y reflexion teologica, entrelazando relatos orales y escritos de sufrimiento, gratitud, de compartir, recordar, y proclamar la muerte de Cristo hasta que el venga. El modelo desafiante descrito en este relato poderoso de comunidad cristiana lo dejara repensando lo que significa para las iglesias estar en mision. Las relaciones intencionales y sostenibles construidas por decadas entre una comunidad campesina en El Salvador e iglesias estadounidenses han producido un cambio genuino. Estoy orgulloso de que Habitat Para la Humanidad de El Salvador ha sido un actor tan creativo y destacado en esta hsitoria de fe tan asombrosa. --JONATHAN T. M. RECKFORD, Director Ejecutivo, Habitat para la Humanidad Internacional Una historia poderosa de veinticinco anos de acompanamiento, solidaridad, y fundamentalmente de esperanza donde una comunidad estadounidense procura acompanar a una comunidad en El Salvador mientras lucha tanto por recordar como tambien por construir una vida nueva en las secuel

              The Secular as Methodology (Hardback)

              Secularization is a process that has been taking place throughout the world, but especially in the West. It refers to limitations of various types to religious thoughts, activities, ownership, and power, but does not necessarily mean limitation on religious freedom. Because of th...is contested double effect, secularization is perceived both negatively and positively. I propose that the secular be viewed primarily as a methodology in various areas of life, beginning most clearly with science, but extending to many other areas of thought and activity. When this is done I believe people then have the clear option to apply their faith to all of their thought and action and at the same time to allow for correction and improvement to their thought and action. These corrections and improvements will be debated, but in the end, for Christians, they are dependent on interpretations of the Bible. Furthermore, I believe the broad result for all people is to clarify the choice to believe in God or rather that we are chosen by God revealed in the Bible who is seeking to have fellowship with us. I have long valued Robert Montgomery as a scholar who refuses to be confined by conventional boundaries--be they academic, intellectual, or religious. Drawing on his rich heritage as a child of missionaries, his years of cross-cultural ministry, and academic study, Montgomery has been especially sensitive to the way cultural, linguistic, religious, and academic 'boxes' can distort and hinder our understanding of the Other. Montgomery has courageously stayed focused on the ways our knowledge and understanding can be enlarged and enriched by being open and paying respectful attention. --Wilbert Shenk, senior professor of mission history and contemporary culture, Fuller Graduate School of Intercultural Studies Robert L. Montgomery comes from missionary heritage and also served as a missionary in Taiwan for sixteen years. The aboriginal Christian movement there sent him back to study sociology
