Description : Basing much of Not in His Image on the Nag Hammadi and other Gnostic writings, John Lamb Lash explains how a little-known messianic sect propelled itself into a dominant world power, systematically wiping out the great Gnostic spiritual teachers, the Druid priests, and the shamanistic healers of Europe and North Africa. They burned libraries and destroyed temples in an attempt to silence the ancient truth-tellers and keep their own secrets. But as Lash reveals, when the truth is the planet Earth it cannot be hidden or destroyed. Not in His Image delves deeply into the shadows of ancient Gnostic writings to reconstruct the story early Christians tried to scrub from the pages of history, exploring the richness of the ancient European Pagan spirituality--the Pagan Mysteries, the Great Goddess, Gnosis, the myths of Sophia and Gaia--and chronicles the annihilation of this Pagan European culture at the hands of Christianity. Long before the birth of Christianity, monotheism was an anomaly; Europe and the Near East flourished under the divine guidance of Sophia, the ancient goddess of wisdom. The Earth was the embodiment of Sophia and thus sacred to the people who sought fulfillment in her presence. This ancient philosophy was threatening to the emerging salvation-based creed of Christianity that was based on patriarchal dominion over the Earth and lauded personal suffering as a path to the afterlife. As Derrick Jensen points out in the afterword, in Lash's hands Jesus Christ emerges as the agent provocateur of the ruling classes.

Description : Everyone who reads the Bible must admit that it tells us to do things that we never have done and cannot do in our fleshly bodies. One reason is that God our Creator is telling us what He wants us to be and do as created in His image and likeness. Our purpose is in our image and likeness of God our Creator, not like the dust of the ground or the flesh of our parents. Most children dont know that they are created in the image and likeness of God, and their parents have not asked God for His spirit for their children so they can be taught this vital truth. The reason parents dont ask God for His spirit for their children is because they dont recognize the need for Him. There are several things mankind cannot do in the flesh, and they must recognize their origin in the image and likeness of God. Mankind must recognize being in the image and likeness of God to, first, love God with all their being and love his neighbors as himself; second, to obey God and his parents as required in Gods word; third, to trust God with all his heart; fourth, to worship God in spirit and in truth; and fifth, to glorify God in his body and spirit, which are God. The devil does not want mankind to know that he is created in the image and likeness of God because man will always defeat Satan and fulfill God's will.

Description : “A Disciple…will be like his teacher.” (Luke 6:40) What does it mean to be a follower of Jesus? The ultimate goal of discipleship is to be like the Teacher—to be like Jesus Himself. Every Christian wants to understand what that means. But even if we understand it, is it possible? Michael Wilkins asserts that it’s not only possible, it’s a life that all Christians are called to—not just a select few. So why do we so seldom experience it? As Wilkins points out, even the first followers of Jesus had a hard time grasping what it meant to be His disciples. Like them, our difficulty often lies in not clearly understanding who Jesus is, not recognizing the resources available to us as God’s children, or not believing who we are to be as Christ’s followers. But like the early disciples, our lives can radically change. If we want to follow Jesus, we can become like Him. “Jesus takes us exactly as He finds us,” writes Wilkins, “and transforms us into His likeness.” So come, learn what it means to walk with Jesus and reflect His image to the real world.

Description : In His Image is the next step for those who have read The Purpose Driven Life. Following the Life Purpose of Mission, this book explores God's great love for humanity from every book of the Bible. From the creation of Genesis to the culmination in Revelation, God’s love shines through every page. Never is this ever clearer than in the times of Israel’s great betrayal of their God. His passionate pursuit of His children can be heard dripping from his voice as He calls them (and us by proxy) back to His shelter and protection. This book was written ... • To convince the reader of God’s intense and immense love for them; • To encourage the reader to reach out to the God who is passionately in love with them; • To strengthen the reader’s faith in God’s compassion; and • To motivate the reader to share the love of God with every person they meet. It is very clear God loves people of all races and ethnicities. Therefore, whenever appropriate to the passage of the day, emphasis is made on the issue of racial reconciliation around God’s love. His love becomes the motivation for evangelism and for community. In each daily devotional ... • There is a Biblical Scripture they are encouraged to read; • There is a passage of Scripture to read in the devotional itself; • There is the devotional to read which focuses the reader on a single thought, broken into two, three or four practical ideas they can utilize that day in their lives; and • There is a thought to take with the reader each day which summarizes the theme concerning God’s great love for them.

Description : Made in His Image is a follow up to Scott's first book The Image of God. This is his second published book. Scott is not affiliated with any one church or denomination. He is not pushing any organization's message or agenda. The simple truth is we can torment ourselves by failing to follow an innumerable amount of rules that will never make us holy, or we can simply walk with God and accept that we are His workmanship made in His image due to no accomplishing works of our own. God's love and restoration for mankind through the blood of Jesus is the core message. God's outstretched arms are reaching out for us and we have the ability to reach back and embrace His love as we were created to do. God is not out of reach, sometimes we just get out of touch when we're distracted by all the outside commotion competing for our attention. No matter how out of touch we've become, God is never more than a whisper away. Scott is an ordained minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ and has ministered in prisons, nursing homes and even a church or two, sharing the love of God and touching lives everywhere. He graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University. Scott and his wife Sue reside in Plainfield, IN.

Description : "Someone once noted that God made us in His image, and ever since we have tried to do God a favor by making Him in our image." It’s easy to speak to others about the Jesus who cared for the poor, healed the sick, and preached love and justice for the least of these. But what about the God who tells the Israelites to wage war and kill entire people groups? Or threatens exile and then delivers? Or sends people to hell? Can these really be the same God? The simple answer is, yes. God in His Own Image takes you on a journey through the Bible exploring God’s true nature. You’ll study instances of great mercy and great severity, and by the end, you’ll begin to see why both God’s compassion and his wrath are necessary, important, and even beautiful. Get to know the God who is both Lion and Lamb, both Judge and Father, both kind and severe, and perfect in every way.

Description : In this ground-breaking book, Kristin Zapalac brings together the methods of social, intellectual, and art history to achieve a new understanding of how the Protestant Reformation altered the terms of political discourse in a German free imperial city. In Zapalac's view, visual and verbal images, many of them having their origins in conceptions of the sacred, were more central to sixteenth-century political thought within the city walls than was the rationalized language of law. Drawing on a wealth of sources including bookbindings, sermons, wills, frescoes, decrees, and woodcuts, she traces the impact of religious change on the languages of judgment and authority used in the city of Regensburg, and thereby sheds light on the nature of political thought in early modern Germany.

Description : In man's quest to seek fulfillment, he acquires many "things" and a host of "stuff". Society has taught him that "things" define who and what he is. The more things he comes to have, the more important he feels. But after acquiring all of his things, he finds himself still unfulfilled.Dr. Simmons asserts in IN HIS IMAGE that man's longing is a desire to re-establish a relationship with his creator. He proves, through scripture, that man was created to be just as his creator. IN HIS IMAGE shows us how to walk like God, talk like God, EXPECT like God because we are, in fact, God's spirit encapsulled in flesh.Dr. Simmons does a fine job in, IN HIS IMAGE, showing us how to recapture our God self.

Description : Even amid the post-bombing destruction of Occupied Japan in 1947, photographer, Nicholas Orzio was able to reveal the soul of a people and the hope of a nation. This ability to evoke emotion as well as capture the inner beauty of God's creations in his photographs has continued for seven decades, and has given him world-wide recognition. Through his belief that God has endowed each of us with some of his own attributes, Orzio's photographs of ordinary individuals become extraordinary as they collectively reflect His image. Join author Carole Orzio Schryber for a photographic journey of spiritual joy in In His Image. Visit Nicholas Orzio's website at www.nicholasorzio.com. '...The insightfulness and vision that Nicholas used in capturing the compelling images in this collection speaks volumes of his ability to not only see what most people never see, but to capture that vision in an image and preserve it forever! Following this work [Beginnings: Images of Occupied Japan]...he allowed his vision to explore and capture the beauty of God's creations. Hopefully this publication will begin to direct the recognition Nicholas deserves for his contribution to the art and science of photography.' —Michael R Scalf Sr, Executive Director, International Photography Hall of Fame

Description : In a wheel chair and marked by an ugly birthmark over much of his face, Dr. Adam SZYMANSKI (POV) has been obsessed by hereditary diseases all his life. But there is a cloud over the opening of his new Institute for Genetic Disease Control (IGDC) For one thing his patented process for making synthetic replacement genes for those missing in victims of such diseases as hemophilia or phenylketonuria can only be delivered to human eggs in an extrauterine fertilization process. That, he quickly discovers, makes untreatable over 90% of the potential beneficiaries who dont know they have the disease until they are born. In addition the Szymanski process does not find favor among several groups of activists and newspapers who deliberately choose to misinterpret its purpose and function. Pickets surround his new building as they did its run-down predecessor. Eugenics, Engineered Children, The People Factory as well as Human Guinea Pigs fill the loud rhetoric surrounding the controversial IGDC. Adam battles the picketers and is sued for assault. The Szymanski process is a computer driven chemical process deliberately limited to the specific genes responsible for the subject disease to prevent any possible side effects from spurious genetic material. But it is so complex that it could not come to fruition without the computer expertise of IGDC co-founder Michael RICHARDSON, a PhD from Cambridge and an Olympic gold medalist in swimming. From humble beginnings in Britain, Michael is torn between his love for his work and his obsessive unsatisfied need for money. He has already expanded the role of the IGDC with a genetic information bank from which he supplies subscribers medical and genetic information on hereditary diseases for a fee. The data bank doesnt quite bring the IGDC into the black, so he also accepts a special project for the study of hereditary diseases endemic to the Mideast Not everyone fears the synthetic gene factory. There are some who covet this ability to genetically alter the human condition. Josip MIKHAILOVICH despises ethnic cleansing in his native Bosnia and is determined to use the Szymanski process as a way to by-pass it with ethnic enhancement. Towards this end he devises elaborate schemes to wrest the process from the IGDC. But Josip has to work with brash young activists like Draja GREGORICH whos missionary zeal impels them to eliminate the enemy. Draja finds working with Josip both baffling and frustrating. Nonetheless they incite activist groups, former patients, politicians and newspaper reporters like Pamela BERGER--a freshman reporter with the local Daviston Star. They even infiltrate the IGDC and try to influence its board of trustees-- a committee of the board of trustees of Haalvorsen University on whose medical school campus and under whose wing the IGDC operates. The board finds many reasons to doubt the wisdom of bringing the IGDC aboard. Gloria WICKERSHAM, a patrician from the founding family of Haalvorsen, has an infant, Brian, with Severe Combined Immunity Deficiency (SCID.) A concert pianist, Gloria comes to the IGDC to prevent having another child with the same affliction. But during the preparatory testing, Theresa FERNANDEZ, an IGDC lab tech who is working her way through medical school, discovers that the SCID child is not the son of Glorias attorney husband Arthur. A devout catholic from rural Puerto Rico she quits thew case but is talked back into it by Adam. She later discovers by accident that the father is Michael Richardson. She is morally outraged, quits and returns home to Puerto Rico. Adam goes tpo Puerto Rico to convince her to return. Meanwhile Gloria contracts meningitis on one pof her many free concert tours at chilfrens hospitals. She transmits it to her SCID son whohas no resuistance to the disease.

Description : Stan was strongly influenced by his Southern Christian upbringing. Under the pressures of family and career, he attempts to simplify his life by taking a job teaching at a small college in Tifton, Georgia. He needs Tifton to provide that stereotypical small-town lifestyle that he always believed existed, even though he had never observed it. As that illusion and his marriage both evaporate, he begins to realize that there is a discrepancy between his Southern Christian values and how his keen senses perceive reality. A young Stan is polite with strong religious values. As he grows older, he turns from religion and becomes a bitter, cold man. The book opens with a devastated Stan at the funeral of his former student, Cleave. Cleave has committed suicide, but his motivation is a mystery that is slowly revealed as the story progresses through unlikely international connections to Tifton and Cleaves even more unlikely connection to the September 11, 2001, attack on New York and Washington, DC. Cleaves death further changes Stans perspective of the world and causes him to question all his previous conclusions about human interactions and human interactions with God. In His Own Image is about the commonality of human nature, despite the wide diversity of human cultures. Through a fictional story built around real historical events, In His Own Image shows how individuals are molded by their birth cultures but, eventually, have the opportunity to break from human influence and see the world in a new way. In His Own Image is not about religion itself, and no ultimate religious conclusions are presented. Instead, it deals with how religion shapes our perception of reality. The reader is challenged to distinguish the part of their religion that was created by man from that which comes from God.

Description : God created each of us in His image, and when He was finished, He said, It is good. These three words from the book of Genesis give us all enormous valueone that is not limited to a future in heaven. In His Image for Teen Girls began as a quest by author Priscilla Soos to explain the value of these three little words and more for her teen daughter. We all need to understand how much worth, strength, and focus can come from knowing that we are each created in Gods image. A personal understanding of what it means to be created in Gods image not only helps us to defend against the negative images pressing down on us every day, but also provides the tools to lift us up to the level God has planned for us. God opened Sooss eyes and helped her see that the challenges her daughter faced were the same as those she encountered at a similar age. The situations differed, but the core issues were the same: the worth she placed on herself would reflect not only the value others would place on her, but also the value she would accept from her environment. In His Image for Teen Girls seeks to help teen girls understand that being created in Gods image makes them heirs to God and His kingdom.

Description : As the Patriarch of Alexandria in the critical 4th century, Athanasius' significance was without doubt profound both as a pastor and theologian. With resolute conviction and powerful personality he became the ardent champion of the Council of Nicea's affirmation of the full divinity of the Son, and in so doing he became the most resourceful and innovative theologian of his day. His Christology provided significant theological clarifications that would become decisive for Cyril of Alexandria and the Councils of Ephesus and Chalcedon. Athanasius is a theologian of great importance and relevance today when many of his concerns are still our own. This book offers a fresh scholarly introduction to the theology of Athanasius that will benefit not only the student but the educated lay reader as well. Weinandy explores, in a lucid and insightful manner, all of the key theological controversies, questions and themes that appear within Athanasius' thought: Revelation, Scripture and Tradition; Creation and the Fall; The Nicene Crisis; The Incarnation and salvation; the divinity of the Holy Spirit; the Church and Sacraments; and the Christian Life and Monasticism.

A center, he does not believe in. But the success or failure of this model rehabilitation center may mean the difference between future peace and protracted civil war in Somalia. For very different motives, both Kenyan counter-intelligence authorities and Al-Shabaab militants will stop at nothing to see that the center fails. In an effort to coerce Haden into sabotaging Renée’s trip, these opposing forces threaten the safety of Haden’s wife and young son living in Nairobi. Amid the chaos of Kenyan intelligence and Somali militants, Haden begins to develop feelings of intimacy for his boss. Alcoholism, infidelity, and professional disgrace threaten to rip the fabric of his life to shreds. And Haden realizes that the ability to protect either his boss or his own family is rapidly slipping out of his control. Set in Al-Shabaab-infested Kenya and Somalia, In His Own Image is a fast paced thriller that tests the boundaries of human courage, loyalty, and integrity. Both Haden and Thomas must separately challenge their own skewed convictions of sex, family, and honor. To endure this ordeal, they will have to commit acts every bit as heinous as those of their enemies. And neither will survive with their humanity intact.
