Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The misfortunes of good people are not only a problem to the people who suffer and their families, but also to everyone who wants to believe in a just and fair world. They inevitably raise questions about the goodness of the world and God. #2 We often ask why good people suffer, and why bad things happen to good people. We assume that we deserve what we get, and that our misfortunes come as a punishment for our sins. But Er, Judah’s first-born, was wicked in the sight of the Lord, and the Lord killed him. #3 The idea that bad things happen to people because God is a righteous judge who gives them what they deserve is a neat and attractive solution to the problem of evil, but it has several serious limitations. It teaches people to blame themselves, and it makes them hate God even as it makes them hate themselves. #4 The belief that people get what they deserve over the course of time is a attempt to make sense of life’s trials. But it is a false belief, because life may seem unfair and innocent people may seem to be suffering, but if we wait long enough, we will see the righteousness of God’s plan emerge.

The judgment scene in Matthew 25 is a call for believers in Jesus Christ to get out of our clubhouses and onto the streets, where the "least of these my brothers" (v.40) may be found. Let My People Go is a twelve-step invitation to our American church culture to examine what we are supposed to be doing as Christians, what we are doing, and whether what we are doing is standing in the way of what we are supposed to be doing. The man who deeply affected author Stan Moody as a Christian was a brilliant, sixty-four-year-old convicted sex offender by the name of Sheldon Weinstein. On April 24, 2009, Shelly died in solitary confinement at Maine State Prison of a ruptured spleen about an hour after Moody requested toilet paper for him. Moody has chronicled his death in a narrative titled "Death in B117." With America now boasting 25 percent of the world's prisoners, the last vestige of hope for these discarded citizens in our jails and prisons and on our streets is a faith community now facing declining membership and shrinking revenues. Poverty and homelessness has at last come home; how we respond to it is a reflection of the seriousness of our faith.

Does your life seem to be stuck in the mud? Do you seem to be living life in a hog pen? Natural disasters, financial ruin, wrongful accusations, terminal illnesses-Why Do Bad Things Happen? It's the question of all humanity. Have you wondered where the power and protection of God is and whether or not your God could be behind these things? Did God cause the blind man to be born blind? Did God cause Job's turmoil? After being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2000 and being injured at work and needing neck surgery in 2009, the Lord revealed IFHOGG to author Jeff Beeson. The acronym stands for increased faith, humility, and obedience and God's glory, received and returned, and it's a set of principles Jeff has come to live by and wishes to share with you. What makes Christianity unique is Jesus, and Jesus modeled IFHOGG perfectly during his time on earth-through the good and the bad. God hopes for the same response from us-an increase in faith, obedience, and humility and a chance to receive God's glory and to return glory to God. His purpose for all bad situations-whether given or allowed by him-is to prepare us to witness, to serve, and to love God in a deeper way. Dive into Why Do Bad Things Happen? and discover how the principles of IFHOGG will enrich your life whether you are going through good or bad times.

In Memory of Rebecca Ann Leighow 2/18/1951 - 10/17/2007 OVERVIEW Two of the most profound uncertainties that man can ponder are: what is the meaning of life, and what is the meaning of death? Many would say that the answers to these questions are unknowable and too mysterious to be comprehended. Reverend Thomas Leighow believes however, that God has given us these answers, contained within the pages of the Bible. The only way we can live in peace and harmony with death, is by having a true and correct perspective of what death actually is. Death can only be properly understood when it is viewed through the eyes of the very Creator of life and death – the God of the Bible. In Dying to Live With God, Rev. Leighow opens the doors to understanding life and death as it should be understood - from God’s eternal perspective. The reality of death, and the meaning of death, can only truly come from the mind of the One who set death in place. Death is not just a by-product of life, rather, death is a necessary component of the divine plan of a sovereign God who holds the power over life and death. For those who live in fear of death, or for those who have not recovered after the loss of a loved one, this book will give you an understanding of death that will provide you with a blessed assurance and comfort to face your own “valley of the shadow of death.”

For centuries the New Testament book of Hebrews has been interpreted as though it had been written for Jewish Christians in danger of lapsing back into legalism and religious ceremony. This view is now being challenged by current scholarship. Rather than attacking the Old Testament and Judaism, the author of Hebrews praises the person and work of Jesus through a series of comparisons on which he bases exhortations and warnings to the present people of God. Hebrews urges God's people to learn from past mistakes and failures, and to take up the challenge in difficult times to live faithfully in the new relationship to God through Jesus, God's Son. In The Second Chance for God's People: Messages from Hebrews, Quaker pastor and professor Timothy W. Seid encourages today's church to respond to the challenge of Hebrews: first individually by progressing in spiritual and moral maturity, and second collectively by being God's faithful people in the world. In the light of ancient Greek language and rhetoric after having extensively researched Hebrews, Seid interprets the text of Hebrews section by section in an accessible and nontechnical way while also illustrating and applying the meaning of the text for the contemporary church.

Plato claims that knowledge gained through the senses is no more than opinion and in order to have real knowledge we must gain it through philosophical reasoning. A journey through this book is intended to create a lasting influence in the lives of people through creating values.
