Moving Your Invisible Boundaries

Have you ever set goals, trained for maximum results, and followed the same personal development plan that seems to work for everyone else, only to hit an ‘invisible boundary’ that causes you to fall short? Unless you know how to expand your heart you will sabotage any success that might take you beyond your current heart boundaries. Even if you manage to push past your current heart boundaries, chances are you will experience some catastrophic event that pulls you back within the limits of life as you have known it! Moving Your Invisible Boundaries is the result of forty years of research and clinical practice. These principles have been proven in counseling sessions, drug recovery programs, personal mentoring and by thousands who have put them into practice through Dr. Jim Richards’ Heart Physics Programs. This book is designed to take you past information, past self-growth and into a life that experiences God, His promises, and the resurrection life of Jesus. By discovering and implementing the distinctions between the mind and the heart you will experience the secret to limitless living! Rather than just hearing and reading the transformation stories of others, your life will be a transformation story. When you learn how to change your heart you will be able to move your invisible boundaries and begin to experience the joy of limitless living!

The Parables of Jesus

A premier New Testament scholar explores how Jesus' trial and execution are portrayed in the New Testament and how that portrayal has affected biblical studies, Christian theology, and Jewish-Christian relations through history. Tomson has written an accessible, responsible analysis of the biblical accounts of Jesus' death, demonstrating how, through compounded misunderstandings, they contributed to anti-Jewish sentiment in the early church and later history. Tomson's question of how Jesus is to be understood in his first-century Judean context is a critical one not only for biblical scholars, but for anyone concerned about human rights and interreligious dialogue today.
