The book of Numbers - in Hebrew, Bemidbar, "In the Wilderness" - is a key text for our time.
Author: Jonathan Rabbi Sacks
The book of Numbers �- in Hebrew, Bemidbar, �"In the Wilderness�" �- is a key text for our time. It is among the most searching, self-critical books in all of literature about what Nelson Mandela called �"the long walk to freedom.�" Its message is that there is no shortcut to liberty. Numbers is not an easy book to read, nor is it an optimistic one. ......

Biblical numbers have spiritual meaning and this spiritual meaning can also be understood chronologically. How did the Wise Men, for example, know what the Star of Bethlehem meant when it appeared? Is there some formula to relate these numbers to time? The answer is yes. Biblical numbers are part of a brilliant system stating Gods blueprint of the history of His church and of the world. In some cases a code, utilizing the Golden Ratio, even dates the Biblical event recorded in the text in which the numbers are embedded: the birth of Christ for example. In other cases, the numbers project the time the events will occur and are chronological prophecies: the fall of Jerusalem to the Roman general Titus in 70 a.d. or the Moslems sacking New York City in 2001 (9/11). In all cases, this book elucidates the power of God to ordain Time in order to make the history of the world.

Guided by the metaphor of the art form known as a mosaic, this book advocates a pluralistic approach to biblical studies. Rees argues that the text itself can be described as a 'mosaic', with each new reading adding to the mosaic.Interpretation is therefore both observation and invention, or contribution.When [re]reading the text, one cannot but be aware of what has been seen before, even if it at first may seem unfamiliar. He thus rejects the idea of a definitive reading. Examining Numbers 25, Rees argues that the various methods employed to interpret thistext (narrative, feminist, postcolonial as well as a more 'traditional' historical-critical reading) enable us to see different things as we read from different places. A further analysis of the book's interpretative history, including the rewritten histories of Josephus and Philo, allows us to discover that creativity has forever been a part of the reading process. Moving on to explore the contributions of more recent commentators, Rees concludes that an embrace of diversity, of collegiality, may well point to a new future in Biblical Studies.

Covenant marriages requiring premarital counseling and tighter strictures on divorce have recently emerged in some American states. At the same time, the doctrine of covenant has reemerged in religious circles as a common way to map the spiritual dimensions of marriage. Covenant Marriage in Comparative Perspective brings together eminent scholars from Jewish, Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant, and Islamic religious traditions as well as experts on American covenant marriage. The introduction carries out an unprecedented comparison of contract and covenant in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim understandings of marriage. The rest of the book elucidates various facets of marriage from the perspectives of both jurisprudence and religion, producing an enlightening integrated picture of the legal and spiritual dimensions of marriage.

In volume one of The Seven Signs, Pastor Mike answered the question of why the Holy Spirit had John choose only those seven miracles out of all those that Jesus performed to convince people to put their faith in Him. However, one critical piece of evidence needed for one to put his or her faith in Christ remains to be revealed. What is that piece of crucial evidence? Join Pastor Mike on a journey through the remainder of this incredible Gospel to discover the answer to this question in volume two of The Seven Signs. The Seven Signs is a practical commentary written to help laypersons and ministers alike to better understand and communicate this amazing Gospel to others, especially to those who have not yet put their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Its purpose is to bring to light the spiritual truths of John's Gospel and their application to our lives in a clear, concise, and thought-provoking manner. Bro. Mike is Senior Pastor of Northrich Baptist Church in Richardson, Texas. He holds a Master of Science in Business Administration from the University of Memphis and a Master of Divinity with Biblical Languages from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. This is the second volume of two written by Bro. Mike. John chapters 12-21 are expounded upon in this volume, while his discussion of John chapters 1-11 can be found in volume one.

This book provides the reader a uniquely comprehensive and exegetical study of "eternal covenant." It answers questions involving eternal covenant in the Bible by beginning with an exegetical study of Berit Olam in the Pentateuch. The study reveals that Berit Olam actually represents a bilateral and conditional arrangement that reflects certain common themes as it is used within distinct passages.

It is true that for more than 22 years, Felix Wantang has been meeting face-to-face with Jesus Christ; but nothing could have prepared him for the series of meetings that produced this book. The meetings were unique from every supernatural standpoint and bigger than anything humanity has ever heard or seen. Jesus Christ revealed the detailed step-by-step process of God’s divine plan for humanity buried in the Holy Bible by taking Felix Wantang on a supernatural joint ride of the limitless mind of the creator of all things who is the Father in Heaven. You must truly love Jesus Christ to read this book. This is not another Christian book in the market. If you don’t believe in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, collectively known as the Holy Trinity, then you shouldn’t read this book. When God created everything, it was a manifestation of the blueprint of His divine plan from His Creative Library. Out of that plan came humanity, the Holy Bible, and Salvation through Jesus Christ. Out of that plan God will also surprisingly unleash the End of the Age which is a lot closer than you think. God’s blueprint encapsulated in His son Jesus Christ has never been disclosed to humanity; but as we move closer to the End of the Age, Jesus Christ has decided for the first time in human history to unveil God’s Supernatural Blueprint for Humanity to those who truly love him. The blueprint also contains the step-by-step divine process that leads to the End of the Age. “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matthew 7:13-14. Hell is big enough to accommodate the entire human race. Don’t think for a moment that God is interested in numbers. At the End of the Age, if only one household (Father, Mother, and Child) makes it to God’s Paradise in Heaven, be rest assured that Salvation will still be considered a huge success in Heaven. If God is interested in numbers then He would not have made Salvation a gift dependent on choice by the recipient. God would have forced it on humanity. Welcome to the limitless mind of God’s Creative Library. God bless you and Jesus loves you!

A monumental collection--essential for academic and seminary libraries and highly recommended for public libraries as well. Library Journal An important new voice in contemporary philosophical- theologial discourse, this book highlights a number of issues that have been of particular concern to scholars, religious leaders, politicians, and the general public since the end of World War II. The contributors' purpose is to force a reexamination of basic concerns in religion, religious beliefs, and religious studies -- and to encourage both a reshaping of entrenched attitudes and a continuation of meaningful dialogue among different religious groups. To this end, they address a wide range of topics, from the perplexing problem of relativism and the issue of feminism in the church to questions of Muslim identity and Hindu-Christian dialogue. Divided into two principal parts, the book begins by exploring a broad spectrum of religious issues. Norbert Samuelson analyzes theism and atheism in Western religious philosophy, Ernest Stoeffler focuses on the parallel trends of conservatism and liberalism in American Protestantism; Gustavo Benavides examines religion and modernization in Latin America. Additional papers address a universal theology, Christianity and sociopolitical thought, postwar neo-Confucian philosophy, among other topics. In the second section, the contributors turn to interreligious dialogues, examining the ways in which various religions have attempted to forge deeper mutual understanding -- often in the face of rising sociopolitical tensions. Taken together, these essays offer an eloquent testimonial to the critical importance of interreligious dialogue in contemporary society. Religious Issues and Interreligious Dialogues will be an important addition to the reading list for studies in world religions, contemporary religious issues, and comparative religion.
