The Fire From Within

The Fire From Within

Fire from Within is the author's most brilliant thought-provoking and unusual book, one in which Castaneda, under the tutelage of don Juan and his "disciples," at last constructs, from the teachings of don Juan and his own experiences, a stunning portrait of the "sorcerer's world" that is crystal-clear and dizzying in its implications. Each of Carlos Castaneda's books is a brilliant and tantalizing burst of illumination into the depths of our deepest mysteries, like a sudden flash of light, like a burst of lightning over the desert at night, which shows us a world that is both alien and totally familiar -- the landscape of our dreams.

Creation Under Fire from Within the Church

Creation Under Fire from Within the Church

This book picks up where the Creation vs. Evolution debate leaves off for the Christian. Without rehashing the debates, this book moves forward with what the Bible says and what it does not say about the subject of creation! This book will equip you in answering today's pressing questions, with the simplicity of God's Word. This book also sounds the alarm to the Body of Christ on one of Satan's most successful lies ever perpetrated on humanity by exposing a dreadful theory called "uniformitarianism" and how it has infected the Body of Christ. Why does what we believe about origins matter? This book brings answers to tons of tough questions and sets the story straight. We invite you to see these answers uncovered from the Bible alone! Dr. John Morris of the Institute for Creation Research (icr.org) Commends on a job well done and says, "Our modern church is plagued by compromise, with Christian leaders intimidated by the pronouncements of some scientists, who incorporated wrong thinking into the Biblical worldview. They should read this thoughtful and well researched book." Rob Franzen and his wife reside in central Virginia with their six children. Rob is a 1992 graduate of Zion Bible Institute in Barrington, Rhode Island, and earned his Bachelor of Theology from Christian Life School of Theology (CLST) in Columbus, GA. Rob has ministered as an evangelist, missionary evangelist, and associate Pastor over the past 20 plus years. Rob has traveled over two dozen foreign countries seeing many salvations and wonderful miracles and healings by the Grace of God. As a minister he has a fervent love for the truth of God's Holy Word and for evangelism. He ministers with a strong prophetic anointing of the Holy Spirit, which will ignite Fresh Fire in those who hear.

From Within the Hidden Places

From Within the Hidden Places

This book is about using modern day scenarios and situations to explain the Bible text in an easy to understand way, using words and thoughts to inspire the individual as they read. Many of the thoughts and inspiration for this book have been through having simple everyday conversations with people then going away, expanding on that thinking and conversation and then using the words and the environment around me to relate it back to the Bible.

Enemies from Within

Enemies from Within

Every story has two sides. This one is no exception. This book tells the other side. Beginning almost a century before Traitors In Waiting, it chronicles the lives of Mars colonists who joined the rebellion to liberate Kinji, a colony of political prisoners. Later, when the newly formed government of Kinji is taken over by enemies from within, ECIA agent Carlie Sinclair must infiltrate Mikarta Central Intelligence (Kinji’s capital city police force) with the aid of a Mars agent who is not what he seems to be. Finally, as the events of Traitors in Waiting unfold, an elite team of CEA military scientists work in secret to develop a weapon that could end the war once and for all... or destroy humanity in the process. The rumbling slowly decreased and eventually subsided. Then, as quickly as they had begun, the sirens went silent. “This is it,” Marc said. “This is how it begins.” And silence still. “Oh, yeah,” he added. “It’s January 14th. Happy thirty-eighth birthday, Kurt.” “Yeah. Whatever.” A few minutes passed in silence, and still they heard no signs of attack. When they walked down the hall and stepped out onto the balcony, they were greeted by a dark sky with no signs of any activity whatsoever except for the normal glow of the city lights in the distance. “Where’s the kaboom?” Marc joked. “There was supposed to be a Kinji-shattering kaboom.” Time travel, portals, terrorist bombings, bioterror plots, murder, espionage, and attempted suicides are just the tip of the iceberg.

Development from Within

Facilitating Collective Reflection for Sustainable Change

Development from Within

"Development from below" is not enough. The key to sustainable social change is development from within- change in individual and group consciousness that leads to collective capacity for self-management among people's organizations. This book is a conversation between a practitioner and a scholar of participatory development exploring the inner and outer journeys of both development facilitators and women villagers. It is grounded in the experience of manavodaya, a non-profit organization that has facilitated self help groups among rural poor and trained development practitioners in methods of dialogue and empowerment for over twenty years. The book presents a successful method of dialogue called collective reflection that has enabled significant changes in the lives of the participants-both development professionals and villagers alike.
