Description : In God's Eye View, Tommy Tenney explores how worship lifts us up to see the trouble we face from God's perspective instead of being trapped in an earthly, time-bound viewpoint. The higher we go, the smaller our problems seem. Tenney also teaches the Principle of Magnification: The closer you get to something, the bigger it appears. In other words, worship not only "shrinks" our problems; it also magnifies God in our lives and to others. Worship doesn't really change our problems; it just minimizes their influence over us as we focus on God. He doesn't promise to remove all of our circumstances, but God does assure us that in His presence and from His perspective--we can see things as they really are and not how they appear to be. In the book of Revelation John was instructed to "behold the Lion," but from an earthly perspective John saw only the Lamb. The heavenly perspective reveals that the Lamb is the Lion, the babe of Bethlehem is the "ancient of days," and the dragon is really a weakened lizard. God's eye view is higher than man's. Higher than a bird's eye view, higher than a man's eye view is God's eye view.
Description : Bestselling author Tenney guides readers toward worship experiences that alter perspective and elevate spirits so worshipers can see things as God does.

Description : In September 2008, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) scientists successfully switched on the historic biggest physics device, the Large Hadron Collider (LHe, to search for the Higgs boson or the God particle, which is but a dot. The ultimate question in the context of Panentheism and/or Pantheism is: Surrounded by an infinite number of dots, good or bad, is God also a (partial) dot? This author calls for a paradigm shift in our mind, by inferring that God is the superior, original dot of all dots.
Description : Astronaut Curt Lucas has lost his family, lost his faith and lost control of a sabotaged space station. Caught in a near-future world of Chinese hegemony and radical fundamentalism, Curt's unlikely return to earth marks the beginning of a desperate struggle for America's soul. The race to find a sacred vessel thought by some to offer eternal salvation, or a plunge toward Armageddon by others, leads Curt to alien worlds and beyond. His journey uncovers a secret order of Christian martyrs ready for the coming Rapture, an eccentric quantum physicist developing anti-gravity weapons and his own son's link to an ancient power—a power that could usher in the very prophecy so many seek to avoid. Packed with a diversity of detail, from Buddhist prayer wheels to super weapons, God's Eye merges the distinct realms of science and religion by viewing faith through the prism of physics. It is string theory with a divine dimension, exploring the dangers of faith without reason.

Description : In a time of transition, the Lord raises voices thjat can be heard with a different appreciation. And one of those voices is Pastor Torres, who with great clarity and with simple but profound language traces for us a spiritual route to be a Winner from God's perspective; our apparent failures don't matter, nor is there interest in the thermometers the world uses to measure success. The message is: think like Christ, walk with Christ and live in Christ. Pastor and Theologian Eduardo Fuentes In this book, my friend Pedro Torres delights us with the thought that in God's economy to lose is to win. What a great paradox! The world would like to win, but God indicates in the Bible that if we want to win, first we must lose. In other words, the true winner is the person who becomes a loser. I believe that every reader must read, memorize and share the concept of this book.
Description : There are moments in life when the everyday is touched by something more glorious than we usually encounter. The beauty of a summer dawn, the kindness of a stranger, the comfort of feeling held during a time of great personal difficulty - perhaps an experience like this has got us wondering. Perhaps it has got us thinking about God. Is God for Real? is the question many struggle with. So Chris Leonard spoke to people from all kinds of backgrounds and asked them to explain how their relationship with God works out in practice, during crises, but mainly in normal, everyday life. The stories she has gathered together - of real personal experience - will be an encouragement to us whether we have know God for many years, or are just feeling our way to a trusting relationship with him.
