The contents of this book first appeared in print as a series of 24 articles in the Christadelphian Tidings in 1999-2000. During the run of the monthly installments, the editor received numerous requests for publication in book form. The present volume represents both the editor´s and the author´s commitment to meet what seems a fervent and widespread desire for substantive material on the issue of faith. To that end, we have rewritten, and slightly expanded, the material into a cohesive book format. I would like to emphasize that this book is about faith. I say this because I expect that the book will become known popularly as "the book about legalism". But it is not a book about legalism any more than, for example, the account of the flood is about sin. It is about God´s grace, in saving Noah and his family, which we see more clearly in the context of judgment, but which God implemented in the context of salvation. This book uses the investigational tool of contrast; it is a searching study of faith from the perspective of stripping away all those things that we can mistake for faith. If we see clearly how we can mistake legalism for faith, then we will be able to prepare ourselves more appropriately for the life-long development of our faith. It is my hope and prayer that these studies, over 15 years in the making thus far, will stimulate our minds to the critical perception of faith and the appreciation of grace. 1. Language: English.

Excerpt from The Pacific Unitarian, Vol. 25: Devoted to Religious Truth and Higher Life; November, 1915 In the world of religion there has been movement showing life. Contrasts have been presented and diverse judgments have been formed. Evangelism has had a forcible demonstration and it has led some resolute spirits to express them selves clearly and positively, with a searching discrimination.

Two parallel, almost identical worlds. One corresponds to the year 2011, the other, to 2013. In 2011, the world is on the verge of destruction. The world of 2013, by contrast, is unaware of the apocalypse. 2011: When Franz Laurenz watches Edward Kellys death on live television, he immediately flies back to Rome. When Pope John Paul III is appointed, Franz Laurenz begins preparations to save mankind from the apocalypse. Simultaneously, Maria is searching - with unexpected help - for Pandoras Box in Jerusalem. Just like a demonic child named Raymond. 2013: College professor Peter Adam has apocalyptic visions. When his wife and young daughter, Maya, die in a plane crash, his brother, Nikolas, reveals their deaths to be connected with the activities of an order of the occult. Peter realizes too late that he is the key to everything. That he has long-since unleashed the evil. And that only he can stop the end of the world. What is Apocalypsis? Written by award-winning screenwriter and author Mario Giordano, Apocalypsis is gripping and explosive: what starts out as a sophisticated Vatican conspiracy soon develops into a uniquely intense and spectacular thriller. Apocalypsis is a digital e-book series consisting of three seasons with 12 episodes each. This is the complete third season. The grand finale!
Now in its third edition and supplemented with more online material, this book aims to make the new information-based (rather than gene-based) bioinformatics intelligible both to the bio people and the info people. Books on bioinformatics have traditionally served gene-hunters, and biologists who wish to construct family trees showing tidy lines of descent. While dealing extensively with the exciting topics of gene discovery and database-searching, such books have hardly considered genomes as information channels through which multiple forms and levels of information have passed through the generations. This new bioinformatics contrasts with the old gene-based bioinformatics that so preoccupies previous texts. Forms of information that we are familiar with (mental, textual) are related to forms with which we are less familiar (hereditary). The book extends a line of evolutionary thought that leads from the nineteenth century (Darwin, Butler, Romanes, Bateson), through the twentieth (Goldschmidt, White), and into the twenty first (the final works of the late Stephen Jay Gould). Long an area of controversy, diverging views may now be reconciled. Donald Forsdyke graduated from St. Marys Hospital, London University, UK in 1961. After house appointments at St.Marys (Medical Unit and Department of Psychiatry) and the Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge (Surgery), he began research in Molecular Biology and Cellular Immunology at the Department of Biochemistry, Cambridge (Ph.D. 1967). He was appointed to what was then the Department of Biochemistry at Queens University in 1968. In 2013 he became President of the John Austin Society for the History of Medicine and Science.
Anne Frank wrote a diary from the age of 13 as she hid for over two years in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse escaping the horrors of Nazi occupation. An intimate record of adolescence and confinement, anger and heartbreak, it is among the most enduring documents of the 20th century. Famed throughout the world and read by tens of millions of people in many different translations, it remains a beloved and deeply admired testament to the indestructible nature of the human spirit. Recently discovered documents and photographs of Anne and her family, including letters from her, her father´s letters from Auschwitz and his poignant descriptions of searching for his family after the war, have been made into a family saga by Mirjam Pressler, the editor of the definitive edition of the Diary. The book, which reads like a novel, recounts the story of Anne´s family before, during and after the war. It contrasts the normality of family life with the horrors of persecution, deportation, and the concentration camps, and through it we gain new insight into Anne and her iconic diary, one of those unique documents that portray innocence and humanity, suffering and survival in the starkest and most moving terms. 1.

Integrate Biblical spirituality into psychotherapy and examine centuries-old answers to modern psychological questions! The Joint Commision on the Accreditation of Hospitals now mandates taking spiritual assessments of all patients. This book is devoted to helping therapists employ Biblical spirituality in the actual treatment program. Biblical Stories for Psychotherapy and Counseling: A Sourcebook organizes the wisdom of the Old Testament into episodes that can shed light on specific psychological issues. From the familiar to the obscure, these stories can help us better understand self-esteem, loyalty and obligations, decision making, temptation, anger, morality, various disorders, family dynamics, support systems, developmental issues, recovery issues, aging, suicidal behavior, and more. From the authors: As brilliant and as penetrating as Freud´s insights are, they are limited in the sense that Freud relied heavily on Greek myth and literature for his models and ideas. His view of man was in many ways that of the Greeksa view that concentrated on the pathological underside of man and on the bedrock of his developmental problems. The Greeks could never really shake the sense of doom, the foreboding and the fatalism that led so many great figures in Greek literature and in real life Greek history to depression and, in a surprising number of cases, to suicide. In contrast, the focus of the Bible is far more optimistic; depression can be successfully dealt with, and suicide is a sad error that should beand usually can beavoided. It encourages people to hope and teaches that day-to-day human effort has a purpose and meaning and that heroism is not a fair or useful aim for man to set for himself. The Bible offers the hope of filling every moment of human life with greater meaning and feeling. New solutions to mental health problems are always welcome. Ours is a new approach, yet a very old one. We present stories that offer a vast treasure of knowledge and wisdom about the way people think and act, and why they do so. The stories are drawn from the Hebrew Bible, a compendium whose latest books are already twenty-four hundred or so years old. Yet, through all those centuries, the basic story of man´s searching and yearning has changed little. We shall concentrate on the psychological meaning of these narratives and what they tell us about how their characters dealt with challenges of family, handicap, depression, and more. You´ll also find information drawn from modern clinical research that parallels the Biblical narratives. The wisdom gained from these ancient stories is applied to help people gain self-understanding and deal with their own situations today. For psychotherapists, these Biblical foundation stories can be used as a basis for integrating spirituality into psychotherapy. The story of Moses, who overcame a speech problem, can be applied to the problems of a Midwestern college student, and the account of David and Goliath can help a businessman overcome his fears of lack of macho. A small sample of the Bible storiesand their clinical implicationsthat you´ll find in this volume: the foundation of self-esteem: Saul the courage to emigrate: Abraham assuming responsibility for one´s self: Lot´s wife focusing on one´s main aim: Sarah and Hagar dealing with commandments: Abraham and Isaac dealing with temptations: Adam and Eve drunkenness and disrespect: Noah reciprocity between generations: Naomi and Ruth amoral intellectualism: Balaam aging: Ecclesiastes dealing with disability: Moses and Aaron abandonment: David protected regression: Jonah Biblical Stories for Psychotherapy and Counseling: A Sourcebook will become a well-used reference in your professional/teaching collection. These Biblical stories will be helpful to therapists, cle
