Description : This book is a collection of short stories from the Gospels of Matthew and Mark about people who came to Jesus to be healed physically and spiritually. What led them to Jesus? What were their needs? The world in Jesus' day was not much different than it is today. We still have needs. We still feel something is missing. We still search for answers. We pray, plead, wait for answers. Some times we hear a voice, see an answer to prayer, or receive a blessing. Other times we feel like we are adrift in a sea of silence, so far away from God. What can we learn from the people who left them homes to travel long distances to find Jesus? Maybe we are like people who waited until Jesus came to them. How do we find Jesus today? What can we learn from the people Jesus touched and healed? One thing is certain … when the answer arrives, the solution is always much easier than we ever imagined. Jesus already touched someone just like you. See how He effected their lives.

Description : Author Chatha Akbar Ghulam believes God is universal. With love as his message, he shares a thought-provoking collection of essays, poems, and meditations illustrating how he has come to understand the concept of God and why he feels a loving heart is the only requirement needed to have faith in God. Chatha shares how as a youth he came to discard the traditional teachings of heredity and customs and eventually achieved inner peace and contentment by recognizing universal good and truth. As he offers his opinion on such subjects as God and war, life and death, wisdom versus ignorance, the yearnings of a soul, and heaven and hell, Chatha provides a fresh, impartial perspective on God’s influence in today’s world. By sharing his thoughts on the differences between the self-righteous and true believers through personal anecdotes and inspiration from Punjabi mystic poets, Chatha quietly encourages spiritual seekers of all faiths to look inward and focus on gratitude rather than desires. Faith, Not Religions offers one man’s inspiring reflections regarding his faith in God, his opinions on organized religions, and his journey to seek his own spiritual path in life.
Description : Are there parallels between the "moment of insight" in science and the emergence of the "unknowable" in religious faith? Where does scientific insight come from? Award-winning biologist Robert Pollack argues that an alliance between religious faith and science is not necessarily an argument in favor of irrationality: the two can inform each other's visions of the world. Pollack begins by reflecting on the large questions of meaning and purpose—and the difficulty of finding either in the orderly world described by the data of science. He considers the obligation to find meaning and purpose despite natural selection's claim to be a complete explanation of our presence as a species—a claim that calls upon neither natural intention, nor design, nor Designer. Next, the book focuses on matters of free will, from the choice of a scientist to accept evidence, to the choice of a religious person to accept a revelation, to a patient's loss of free will in medical treatment. Here Pollack addresses questions of ethics and offers a provocative comparison of two difficult texts whose contents remain incompletely understood: the DNA "text" of the human genome and the Hebrew record of Jewish written and oral law. In closing, Pollack considers the promise of genetic medicine in enabling us to glimpse our own future and offers a reconsideration of the possible utility of the so-called placebo effect in curing illness. Whether refuting a DNA-based biological model of Judaism or discussing the Darwinian concept of the species, Pollack, under the banner of free inquiry, presents a genuine, vital, and well-argued assay of the intersection of science and religion.
