Description : ADAM AND EVE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN: A BIBLE-BASED STUDY CONCERNING FREE WILL, HUMAN NATURE, AND THE FALL OF MAN presents an extremely insightful and long overdue look into what really happened in the Garden of Eden. Using the BIBLE as its irrefutable source, this book digs deeply into what the BIBLE actually tells us about the events that occurred there. Every school child knows the story of Adam and Eve, the fruit, the temptation of the serpent, and the expulsion from the Garden of Eden. The story of what happened in that paradise is often presented as a fairy tale, an ancient parable, or a story not relevant to the rest of the BIBLE. But such misreadings are a mistake, for what happened in the Garden of Eden is completely relevant to everyone, and this story's underlying message is urgently needed in the world of today more than ever. By understanding the lessons learned from Adam and Eve's time with God in the Garden of Eden, we can gain clear insights into the nature of free will, the essence of what it means to be a human being, why our world is in its current state, why paradise was lost, and, perhaps most importantly, how paradise can be regained. The deeper lessons from the Garden are rarely discussed or even explored - and these lessons seem to have been forgotten by most people in the modern age, for it does not seem to be understood that woven into this ancient world narrative are golden strands of wisdom that thread themselves into a map that can lead us to eternal treasures of spiritual wisdom, and, ultimately, on a path back to a life - and a world - that is truly the paradise that God intended us to have. Here at last is a book that answers the most difficult questions about this story: Why, exactly, did God create Adam and Eve? What beings existed before humans? How do we know the serpent was the Devil? What methods of deception did the Devil use to trick Adam and Eve? Who are the people who were living in Nod when Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden? Who is to blame for the Fall of Man: Adam, Eve, or the Devil? Since humans are not perfect, did God make a mistake when He made humans? Since the Devil is evil, did God make a mistake when He created the Devil? Why is there so much evil in world? What, exactly, is free will? Where is the Garden of Eden? Does the Garden still exist? Why is this story relevant today? Here at last is a book that provides crystal-clear, definitive answers to each of these perplexing questions. The answers to many of these questions will surprise you, inspire you, and remove any doubts you have ever harbored concerning God's plans for this world and for you. In this book's discussions you will find your faith in God and His plan raised to new levels as each of these issues - and so much more - is addressed definitively by finding the answers that are based on the BIBLE and that are found in the BIBLE - for this book is BIBLE-based, meaning that the BIBLE is the source for the information discussed here. Only by sticking to the BIBLE and adhering to a close reading of its actual words can we be certain to attain clarity in our discussion of what is actually said in the BIBLE itself. It is the sincere purpose of this book to take a deep look at what really happened in the Garden of Eden and what it means for us today. As you read this book, the BIBLE is quoted directly, and the excerpts under discussion are reprinted in bold (not in hard-to-read italics or red text or in microscopic footnotes) for your convenience so you do not have to close this book and go searching through your BIBLE to find the lines as they are referenced, nor do you have to flip around to other pages in this book to locate passages. This book focuses on Chapters 2 and 3 of Genesis, and these chapters are printed in their entirety within the in-depth, line-by-line discussion of the text itself, a discussion that will transform your life for the better forever.
Description : This book is all about encouraging other women and their men, that it is possible to fall pregnant, carry and give birth to their babies easily without any complications or pain. I have had four children and with all four of them, I applied what I wrote about in this book. I had complication-free, intervention-free and PAIN-free pregnancies and childbirths. This book is my story of what I did and how I got there. I discovered that the original way that women were designed to concieve, carry and give birth to babies, is everything BUT the way the world has spent the past few hundred years telling us to do it. It was never meant to be difficult. It was never meant to be painful. It requires work, yes. But it's bearable and easy once you get the right idea about it in your mind and thinking. I truly believe the message that I have needs to get out! Women have been told for way too long, that pregnancy and childbirth is one of the most traumatic things we have to go through. Its simply not true and we need the truth to be released into our thinking, so that we can make it our experience.
Description : Early modern printed books are copiously illustrated with charts, diagrams, and other kinds of images that represent systems of thought and ways of doing things. Visual Rhetoric and Early Modern English Literature shows how these images fostered what Elizabeth Eisenstein called brainwork related to concepts of space, truth, art, and nature, and reveals their importance to poetry by Andrew Marvell and John Milton, and Aphra Behn’s Oroonoko. The genres of illustration considered in this book include military strategy and tactics, garden design, instrumentation, Bibles, scientific schema, drawing instruction, natural history, comparative anatomy, and Aesop’s Fables. The argument produces unique insights into the ways in which visual rhetoric affected verbal expression, and the book develops novel methods of using printed images as evidence in the interpretation of the rich, strange, and beautiful literature of early modern England.

Description : At the foundational level of westernized cultures is a Core Belief Matrix. This matrix consists of seven imbedded beliefs that bind us to a three dimensional world of limitations. Author Lark Batey takes the reader on a fascinating and liberating journey of systematic investigation and self exploration that reveals the ruse of the matrix and guides the reader to the discovery of the Sovereign Self. As a consciousness explorer, the reader will travel through historical events that defined the matrix, experience the story of our origins through the mythology of The Grand Experiment, and learn more about archetypal influence by traversing the mountains and valleys of our inner landscape through The Fool’s Journey and other universal paths of awakening. Traveling deeper into one’s psyche, the explorer discovers how the play of duality, psychological overlays, and shame deepen the oppression of the Matrix’s hold upon us. The next destination on the journey takes the explorer to the Field of All Possibilities, where glimpses of the Sovereign Self appear. Finally, the matrix can be dismantled and the explorer can Break Free from the Tyranny of Beliefs—to dream new dreams that will create new worlds.

Description : We are at our human best when we give and forgive.But we live in a world in which it makes little sense to do either one. In our increasingly graceless culture, where can we find the motivation to give? And how do we learn to forgive when forgiving seems counterintuitive or even futile? A deeply personal yet profoundly thoughtful book, Free of Charge explores these questions¬ – and the further questions to which they give rise – in light of God’s generosity and Christ’s sacrifice for us. Miroslav Volf draws from popular culture as well as from a wealth of literary and theological sources, weaving his rich reflections around the sturdy frame of Paul’s vision of God’s grace and Martin Luther’s interpretation of that vision. Blending the best of theology and spirituality, he encourages us to echo in our own lives God’s generous giving and forgiving. A fresh examination of two practices at the heart of the Christian faith¬ – giving and forgiving¬ – the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lenten study book for 2006 is at the same time an introduction to Christianity. Even more, it is a compelling invitation to Christian faith as a way of life.“Miroslav Volf, one of the most celebrated theologians of our day, offers us a unique interweaving of intense reflection, vivid and painfully personal stories and sheer celebration of the giving God ... I cannot remember having read a better account of what it means to say that Jesus suffered for us in our place.”– Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

Description : Deepens and refreshes our view of early Christianity while casting a disturbing light on the evolution of the attitudes passed down to us. How did the early Christians come to believe that sex was inherently sinful? When did the Fall of Adam become synonymous with the fall of humanity? What turned Christianity from a dissident sect that championed the integrity of the individual and the idea of free will into the bulwark of a new imperial order—with the central belief that human beings cannot not choose to sin? In this provocative masterpiece of historical scholarship Elaine Pagels re-creates the controversies that racked the early church as it confronted the riddles of sexuality, freedom, and sin as embodied in the story of Genesis. And she shows how what was once heresy came to shape our own attitudes toward the body and the soul.
