Book Summary:

Sixteen-year-old Nick and his brother, Alan, are always ready to run. Their father is dead, and their mother is crazy—she screams if Nick gets near her. She’s no help in protecting any of them from the deadly magicians who use demons to work their magic. The magicians want a charm that Nick’s mother stole—and they want it badly enough to kill. Alan is Nick’s partner in demon slaying and the only person he trusts in the world. So things get very scary and very complicated when Nick begins to suspect that everything Alan has told him about their father, their mother, their past, and what they are doing is a complete lie. . . .

Demons and Spirits in Biblical Theology

Book Summary:

Some people believe that a battle of cosmic proportions is raging as Satan and his demons seek to destroy Christians and undermine God’s plans. Others believe that all talk of demons in the Bible and theology only reflects pre-modern superstitions that should be re-interpreted in philosophical and psychological terms. Despite their contrasts, both believe that the Bible directly or indirectly intends to teach readers about reality. Another path is possible. What if references to demons in the Bible are similar to references about the shape and structure of the cosmos representing the beliefs familiar to the ancient audience but used only as a framework for teaching about the plans and purposes of God? This approach is here worked out through detailed examination of hermeneutical method, the ancient Near Eastern and Greco-Roman contexts, each of the biblical terms and passages, and the essentials of biblical and systematic theology. Unlike many scholarly treatments of demons, readers will not find an assessment of the metaphysical realities. Instead they will be introduced to a hermeneutical, exegetical, and theological feast regarding what the Bible, understood in its ancient context, teaches.

Book Summary:

This is a story about a wager between an angel and a demon over the direction a man ́s life will take. All of the stories in this book are based on true events that occurred in the life of the author or in Biblical history. There have been many testimonials written that describe the lifestyles that people have been delivered from but very few address the struggles that ordinary Christians face when they begin their walk with God. Most people will struggle with the flesh and with wrong attitudes and will not know how to deal with the demons that will come to tempt, discourage, and oppress them. I want people who read this book to be able to identify with some of the struggles faced by the characters and be encouraged that they are not alone in their own personal struggles. Salvation is instant but holiness is a lifelong journey that requires constant maintenance checks. I want to assure them that God loves them despite their shortcomings and still wants to use them to build His kingdom. The purpose of this book is to entertain, educate, and equip. I put the story into a fiction format to attract the average reader who is interested in God, angels, and demons but doesn ́t necessarily attend church services. I tried to fill the srories with information about God and the benefits of being a Christian. I want to make them aware of the demonic forces arrayed against them and teach them about the power that is available to them to combat these forces of darkness. There are many scripture references and Biblical reenactments that should spark curiosity and provoke the reader to further bible study on their own. For the serious Bible student there is a wealth of information from the Book of Enoch and the Testament of Solomon. Although this is a work of fiction there was a lot of reseach done and the information found in this book can be used to help you make the right decisions in life, to protect yourself from demonic entities, and to have a more satisfying relationship with God and enjoy the benefits of being in covenant with Him.

The fires of Bayou Corne were still smoldering as Dr. Trevor Knight embarked on his next journey. A journey that would leave in its wake, the deaths of many whose path he has crossed. The evil forces that had haunted him, previously vanquished back to hell, soon find him and interrupt his quest for peace, for a sense of normalcy. Three demons, long ago forgotten by history. Buried in the sands of time, the sands of Egypt. More powerful than his previous encounters. The Beast. Making one final attempt to end the life of Dr. Knight. Without the Cross of the Ghost Friar to protect him, he must rely on the courage and conviction of his faith to battle his greatest adversaries to date. Fatima, ah yes, coincidence, Dr. Knight? Perhaps not so much as you thought. On the other hand, perhaps it is Tatiana. The winged ones, how to summon them. Perhaps best not to summon them.

Book Summary:

Ever held a seance and accidentally trapped a demon into marriage? No takers? Just me? Crap. Marriage is my idea of hell, at least until the day an unfairly hot demon shows up in my apartment and drags me to actual Hell—as his wife. I’d honestly rather have a root canal without sedation than marry anyone, least of all a surly—even if damnably attractive—demon. But I’m bound to the contract stupid Teenage Me made with Azazel when I accidentally summoned and trapped him into marriage, to be consummated if I were still single at twenty-five. I’d forgotten all about it. He hasn’t. And now he’s here to claim me. Neither of us is thrilled about this marriage-of-inconvenience, but what I hate even more than the idea of being married...is being ignored. So when Azazel intends to park me out of sight and mind at the other end of his estate in Hell, I make it my newly eternal life’s mission to be as much of a real inconvenience to him as possible. It’s all fun and games, until I find a soul that shouldn’t be in Hell, stumble smack-dab into the middle of a demon family feud…and the banter between me and Azazel turns so hot it might consume me. Hellishly Ever After is the first installment in a new paranormal romance series by award-winning author Nadine Mutas. If you love laugh-out-loud funny enemies-to-lovers stories with enough heat to burn up the pages, you don’t want to miss this book!

Book Summary:

What place do the four Gospels give Satan, demons, and Jesus’ human opponents (including Jewish leaders but also Jesus’ disciples) in their accounts of Jesus’ life? This study takes a literary-historical approach to the Gospels, examining them as narratives. It shows how the authors were in the process of developing the devil as a character and determining which roles he filled. New interpretations of individual passages in the Gospels are given as well as new understandings of the theological emphases of each author. This study is also a contribution to redaction criticism and the relative chronology of the Gospels. It employs the theory of Matthean posteriority which revolutionizes our understanding of the literary relations between the Gospels and allows for a new understanding of theological development in early Christianity.

Book Summary:

Liberals blame the global retreat of liberal democracy on globalisation and authoritarian leaders. Only liberalism, so they assume, can defend democratic rule against multinationals or populists at home and abroad. In this provocative book, Adrian Pabst contends that liberal democracy is illiberal and undemocratic – intolerant about the values of ordinary people while concentrating power and wealth in the hands of unaccountable elites. Under the influence of contemporary liberalism, democracy is sliding into oligarchy, demagogy and anarchy. Liberals, far from defending open markets and free speech, promote monopolies such as the new tech giants that undermine competition and democratic debate. Liberal individualism has eroded the social bonds and civic duties on which democracy depends for trust and cooperation. To banish liberal democracy’s demons, Pabst proposes radical ideas for economic democracy, a politics of persuasion and a better balance of personal freedom with social solidarity. This book’s defence of democratic politics against both liberals and populists will speak to all readers trying to understand our age of upheaval.

Book Summary:

Jeon’s Biblical Eschatology explores the pattern of covenant eschatology, demonstrated and revealed in the Bible throughout redemptive history. In a sense, it is a revolutionary method to freshly examine and look at the entire redemptive history from the perspective of covenant eschatology because the Bible itself is the covenantal canon. Readers will marvel at how the author unpacks the pictorial pattern of covenant eschatology progressively revealed in the Bible. As we live in the Global Mission Age under the grace of God, it is vitally important and necessary to have a proper view of eschatology. Jeon’s book will guide believers to a biblically balanced understanding of eschatology and properly equip them with a biblical, covenantal, and eschatological worldview to live their lives for the glory of God, actively participating in the Global Mission under the guidance of the Holy Spirit as we eagerly wait for the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Many are so busy with personal, family and church agendas that engaging directly with Heaven is altogether foreign. As a believer, you are Heaven’s conduit to earth. The Father’s kingdom is to be manifested through you, but unless you engage with Him, how are you to know what He wants of you. Jesus only did what He saw the Father doing. ENGAGING WITH HEAVEN will help you understand why you can. It will also outline how you can take the initiative to engage with Heaven, and how Heaven takes the initiative to engage with you.

Book Summary:

For the past four hundred years, theological debate has been dominated by a fundamental divide: between the liberals, with strong loyalties to the secularity of the secular state and university on the one hand, and the neo-orthodox, insisting on the absolute priority of a proper loyalty to the church community itself, on the other. God and Modernity strikes off in a fundamentally new directionAndrew Shanks boldly calls for a new and better way to do theology. Shanks argues that God is most present in a culture where public debate over ethical issues flourishes best. Social movements such as feminist movements, peace movements, and green movements have emerged to challenge both Church and State. These new movements are no longer confined to a particular confessional religious identity and are independent of state sponsorship. These social movements already made an individual impact on theology. What would a theology look like, systematically trying to reconcile older divisions in the theological debate with a new loyalty to such movements common ethos? Anyone wishing to gain a refreshing insight into a new way of understanding theology and politics will welcome this ground-breaking book.

Book Summary:

Many years of biblical study have showed John E. Hollywell that most people have never had an accurate explanation of biblical truths and do not know what an amazing inheritance the Bible says they may have once they make Jesus their Lord and Saviour. The chaos the world suffers was foretold in the Bible. Scientists offer explanations, but governments, politicians, and educators have no answers as to why there is such poverty, crime, war, disease, mental health problems, and other forms of misery in the world today. Are there solutions to all of these issues? Emphatically, the author says, Yes! Hosea 4:6 says that Gods people are destroyed through lack of knowledge. This book provides some such knowledge in a simple, readable format. The Answer: God's Covenants of Promise will have achieved its purpose if it can open a readers eyes to see the Word of God as it was meant to be understood, why seemingly good people worldwide are so hostile and inhumane to each other, and who Jesus is and what was His true purpose for coming. The Answer: God's Covenants of Promise was written for everyone who might seek to know where humanity came from, why we are here, and where we go in the future, into eternity. The Answer: God's Covenants of Promise seeks to answer such scientific, evolutionary, and spiritual questions as What is faith in God? to be found through Jesus of Nazareth, Gods son.

Book Summary:

This is a true story like you probably haven't heard before. Born and raised in a Christian family, Robin grew up in Church and heard all about the gospel. Yet in his teenage years he decided to start a search into the occult, which eventually would cause him to surrender his life to satan. Caught in a life of lies, destruction and sin, it drove him to the point where he wanted to commit suicide. Until he met Jesus. He decided to turn his life around and started to follow Jesus, but from there the battle was far from over. In this book Robin takes you on a journey through his life, through the good and the bad, while revealing his mistakes and failures, in a way like you seldom see these days. No political correctness, no keeping up appearances, but a real and vulnerable man, facing real battles. From being bullied most of his childhood, to a life of hate and plotting revenge, to following Jesus. From following Jesus to falling back into sins, to getting back up again, to falling back, to getting back up. The battle was enormous and the struggle was immense. While sharing his failures, he also shares about the lessons he has learned from it, which gives you insight in the way the enemy tries to ensnare you and how you can arm yourself against it. Even though he came from a life of being humiliated, being beaten, being spit at, being scammed and being rejected, he choose to live a life of forgiveness and love. As you're about to see, that didn't come easy. In fact, it had nothing to do with the way he felt. There's still a God Who saves, heals, delivers and restores. The Blood of Jesus hasn't lost its power. Freedom is within reach.

THE SUMMA THEOLOGICA: COMPLETE EDITION SAINT THOMAS AQUINAS — A Classic in Western Philosophy and the Catholic Church — Complete and Unabridged, contains the Complete Text and Supplements — Three Parts, 38 Tracts, 631 Questions, 3,000 Articles, 10,000 Objections and Answers — Over 2.5 Million words — Includes an Active Index and multiple Table of Contents to every Part, Question and Article — Includes Layered NCX Navigation — Includes Illustrations by Gustave Dore The Summa Theologica, or 'Summary of Theology' was written from 1265 to 1274. It is the greatest achievement of Saint Thomas Aquinas and one of the most influential works of Western literature and Philosophy. His influence on Western thought is considerable, and much of modern Philosophy was conceived as a reaction against, or as an agreement with, his ideas, particularly in the areas of Ethics, Natural Law, Metaphysics, and Political Theory. It is intended as a manual for beginners in Theology and a Compendium of all of the main Theological teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. It presents the reasoning for almost all points of Christian Theology in the West. The book is famous, among other things, for its five arguments for the existence of God, the Quinque viae. The Summa Theologica's topics follow a cycle: The Existence of God; Creation, Man; Man's Purpose; Christ; The Sacraments; and back to God. The first part is on God. In it, he gives five proofs for God’s existence as well as an explication of His attributes. He argues for the actuality and incorporeality of God as the unmoved mover and describes how God moves through His thinking and willing. The second part is on Ethics. Thomas argues for a variation of the Aristotelian Virtue Ethics. However, unlike Aristotle, he argues for a connection between the virtuous man and God by explaining how the virtuous act is one towards the blessedness of the Beatific Vision (beata visio). The last part of the Summa is on Christ and was unfinished when Thomas died. In it, he shows how Christ not only offers salvation, but represents and protects humanity on Earth and in Heaven. This part also briefly discusses the sacraments and eschatology. The Summa remains the most influential of Thomas’s works. Saint Thomas Aquinas was a Dominican Priest, born near Aquino, Sicily in 1225. He was an immensely influential Philosopher and Theologian in the tradition of Scholasticism, known as Doctor Angelicus. He died in 1274. As one of the 33 Doctors of the Church, he is considered the Church's greatest Theologian and Philosopher. Thomas is held in the Catholic Church to be the model teacher for those studying for the priesthood. He was canonized in 1323. PUBLISHER: CATHOLIC WAY PUBLISHING

Book Summary:

Witches, ghosts, fairies. Premodern Europe was filled with strange creatures, with the devil lurking behind them all. But were his powers real? Did his powers have limits? Or were tales of the demonic all one grand illusion? Physicians, lawyers, and theologians at different times and places answered these questions differently and disagreed bitterly. The demonic took many forms in medieval and early modern Europe. By examining individual authors from across the continent, this book reveals the many purposes to which the devil could be put, both during the late medieval fight against heresy and during the age of Reformations. It explores what it was like to live with demons, and how careers and identities were constructed out of battles against them – or against those who granted them too much power. Together, contributors chart the history of the devil from his emergence during the 1300s as a threatening figure – who made pacts with human allies and appeared bodily – through to the comprehensive but controversial demonologies of the turn of the seventeenth century, when European witch-hunting entered its deadliest phase. This book is essential reading for all students and researchers of the history of the supernatural in medieval and early modern Europe.

Book Summary:

Apostolic Perspective of Systematic Theology delves into the major doctrines that formulate the Christian belief, explained from an Apostolic point of view. The book explores various facets of theology, including God and the Godhead, man and sin, angels and demons, covenants and dispensations, and last things. It compares through study of the Scriptures in both testaments to arrive at a reasoned argument for stances on various subjects as salvation, the nature of the Godhead, the deity of Christ, and the inerrancy of the Bible. The purpose of the book is to instill a love of study for the serious Bible student that compels the reader to apply sound hermeneutical principles in defense of the hope that lies within the believer. As there is no premium on ignorance of the principles that lie within the Word of God, the author compares each facet of doctrine while building a comprehensive system of theology that can stand against the face of higher criticism and doctrinal error, providing the reader with a reasonable explanation of what is most precious to all Christians – one’s own faith.

Book Summary:

Summa Theologica, Part II-II (Secunda Secundae) Thomas Aquinas - The Summa Theologiae (Latin: Compendium of Theology or Theological Compendium; also subsequently called the Summa Theologica or simply the Summa, written 1265-1274) is the best-known work of Thomas Aquinas (c.1225-1274), and although unfinished, "one of the classics of the history of philosophy and one of the most influential works of Western literature." It is intended as a manual for beginners in theology and a compendium of all of the main theological teachings of the Church. It presents the reasoning for almost all points of Christian theology in the West. The Summa's topics follow a cycle: the existence of God; Creation, Man; Man's purpose; Christ; the Sacraments; and back to God. (courtesy of wikipedia.com). This is part 2-2, 'Secunda Secundae'. In a chain of acts of will, man strives for the highest end. They are free acts, insofar as man has in himself the knowledge of their end (and therein the principle of action). In that the will wills the end, it wills also the appropriate means, chooses freely and completes the consensus. Whether the act be good or evil depends on the end. The "human reason" pronounces judgment concerning the character of the end; it is, therefore, the law for action. Human acts, however, are meritorious insofar as they promote the purpose of God and his honor. By repeating a good action, man acquires a moral habit or a quality which enables him to do the good gladly and easily. This is true, however, only of the intellectual and moral virtues (which Aquinas treats after the manner of Aristotle); the theological virtues are imparted by God to man as a "disposition", from which the acts here proceed; while they strengthen, they do not form it. The "disposition" of evil is the opposite alternative. An act becomes evil through deviation from the reason, and from divine moral law.

Book Summary:

Do you know the story of grace? Can you tell it? Can you use it to stand against every negative situation in your life? The answers to these crucial questions will determine your success in the Kingdom of God. Perhaps the larger questions is: “Do you know the motive for God’s actions toward the human race? Specifically, what is the desire behind His actions toward us, as described about the Kingdom of God? Are these things beyond our knowing, or are we invited to discover this glorious mystery? The apostle Paul described seeking this knowledge as desiring to apprehend what has apprehended him. The purpose of this book is to produce Grace Whisperers. This book is dedicated to the modus operandi of the Church of Jesus Christ. Learning how to become Grace Whisperers is learning to skillfully work with the Holy Spirit in the administration of the Gospel of God’s Grace. This book was written as an intensive, “Spiritual Special Forces” training course as I call it. It is designed to help train the children of God—known as the “sons of God”—to be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. “Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8 (NLT)

Book Summary:

A Bible student reference A New Testament prophecy of a falling away from truth into apostasy and lawlessness, in the final generation before Jesus Christ returns in glory, is being fulfilled now and is shortly to end. Yet Christianity has overwhelmingly moved so far from its first century roots that it could not even recognise this – or that Christ’s return is therefore now almost upon us! How and why this is the case is here explained thoroughly and logically with many examples directly from the word of God. In God’s saving plan for the world, everyone must in time make a free will choice to become part of the ‘Israel of God’ in order to access eternal life in the kingdom of God. The route to take is the “strait and narrow” way (Mat 7:13-14) that very few have so far found, and it involves the biblical new and old covenants which both apply to this Israel. Embark on this voyage only if you are willing to: be challenged about some basic Christian preconceptions, be a serious open-minded Bible student, and trust what the Bible teaches - but remember that time is short. “What the Bible has taught me I see as both vital and urgent for our eternal salvation; yet I know of no church or individual theologian who teaches what this book deals with in any substantive way” “Be prepared for major challenges to your understanding just as God has challenged me.” “In the epistles, Paul refers to two Israels whom he calls Israel after the flesh (I Cor 10:18) and the Israel of God (Gal 6:16); I focus mainly on the latter (but I also explain an unexpected but critically important connection between them)” “Dependent on the teaching, nearly all Christian denominations either teach nothing at all on it or almost the opposite of what Scripture repeatedly showed me. Looking back, I find this absolutely staggering!” “Very few [Christians] understand that the new covenant also only applies to Israel (as I will clearly show).” “I no longer believe that the NT [New Testament] can be fully understood without this extra Israel dimension” “Had I felt I could deliver this in a more light-hearted way I would have done so, but its implications are too awesome and fundamental to our eternal life prospects for that”

Book Summary:

This is an enchanted book about reality bounded by the spiritual realm, science, and science fiction. Science fiction because such sciences are simply processes we are yet to understand or instruments yet to be discovered or created. There are some sciences I believe even transcend human understanding. All these make up our world in different dimensions of reality. Understanding gravity in its strongest and weakest point is important in reading this book, or then again, you could just sit back and enjoy how entertaining this book is.
