"The World Set Free" is a novel by H. G. Wells, written in 1913 and first published in 1914. The plot concerns the advent and use of terrible and immensely-powerful nuclear weapons the likes of which the world has never seen before, exploring the idea of technological advance as a means of human progress. A fascinating and prophetic novel, "The World Set Free" is highly recommended for fans of vintage speculative fiction. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Invisible Man" (1897), and "The War of the Worlds" (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
In view of the destruction of the sources of life, ecology is no longer a marginal issue. In "Creation Set Free," Sigurd Bergmann creatively rethinks the discipline of theology in light of the ecological crisis. He is concerned throughout to see the cosmos as something involved in redemption rather a mere stage for the human salvific drama. After critically and constructively summarizing previous initiatives toward an ecological theology, Bergmann opens up an extraordinary dialogue between these initiatives and church father Gregory of Nazianzus. Through the neglected topics of sociality, motion, suffering, and the Spirit, the author brings to light Gregorybs thought on the liberation of creation. Finally, Bergmann connects ecological issues and patristic tradition with contemporary liberation theology.
The author describes his experiences as a twelve-year-old boy discovering that his mother had arranged for the murder of his abusive father and how his Christian faith led him to forgive his mother and develop a relationship with her after her release from prison.
What every believer should know about this beautiful new life. We can be restored from a broken life. We can be personally improved but perfection is not humanly possible. We are called to be healers and workers in faith. Are we healing people with our hands or hurting them? God’s most effective signs of His existence are through human beings who allow themselves to be manifested in God. There is a field of harvest waiting to be yielded by believers or will the lost harvest be winnowed like chaff on the threshing floor. Faith needs believers who take action through compassion not hypocrites who masquerade as believers. There are people who are hurting, who need love by encouraging words and helping hands. If we are truly set free as believers those who are in darkness will be drawn to our light and our joy and they will ask us where does our light and joy come from. What will we tell them?

How God Rescues Us from Lives of Shame, Guilt, & Sin

In his memoir Set Free, Harrison Prins shares his compelling journey from the pits of hell—debauchery, sexual abuse, and a suicide attempt—to his eventual rescue by God. As Prins lies on a lumpy mattress in a cold damp room in the psychiatric ward in the Redlands Community Hospital—the victim of an attempted suicide—he chronicles how, in the years and months preceding his hospital stay, he wrestled with temptations created by the devil, developed thoughts of worthlessness, and eventually turned to a self-induced death as a means for relief, only to find that through God's grace, that hope is the best of things—maybe even better than life itself. As he compares his life experiences with Corrie ten Boom and Christ himself, he opens the door for others to view the world as a place of darkness and sin, but also allows them to see God as good, gracious, and powerful. Prins' compelling story transports others through his internal struggles from childhood to today in order to reinforce an important message that it is okay to let go and trust that God will rescue all of us from the darkness.
This is the story of how a young man with a bright future ahead of him got caught up in the drug scene as a way to deal with the unsolved pain of his childhood years. In turning to drugs for diversion, acceptance, and self worth, he ended up wasting all kinds of money and many opportunities to succeed. After a ten year all consuming cocaine addiction, and with no way to escape, he came to the realization that he needed special help. So after years of seeking help through rehab, AA and NA meetings, and visits with psychotherapists and new-age helpers, and religion to no avail, he was finally introduced to Jesus in a new and personal way. After struggling for a few more years he came to the end of himself and finally turned his will completely over to God. At that point he was set free from his addiction and the desire to use drugs. This story serves as an example of what God can do for anyone who is willing.
How God is Revealed in Jesus and Why That is Really Good News
Author: Matthew J. Distefano
Pubpsher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
What is the ending to the human drama? Will all be reconciled to God in the end? Does God demand an altar, a corpse, and blood? Or, rather, is the Christian God set apart from all the other gods throughout history? All Set Free sets out to answer some of the more difficult questions Christians today are faced with. It will challenge the Augustinian understanding of hell and the Calvinist understanding of the atonement; replacing them with a more Christ-centered understanding of both doctrines. This book will also use the work of Rene Girard in order to reshape how many understand "what it means to be human." Then and only then should we ask: "Who is God?" Come explore what has become Matthew's theological pilgrimage to this point. Come discover the God of peace.
