The Story of Leah: When Life Is Not What You Expected It To Be

by Angela Craig

Let me ask you a question. Has life turned out the way you expected?

Sometimes life is not what we dreamed of because of the situations we create. Other times it is not what we expected because of the circumstances into which we are born.

As we travel through The Story of Leah together, you will find that Leah faced this same question. Sometimes Leah’s life was not what she expected because of what others did. Then there were other times when her life was not what she expected because of her own actions. Regardless, Leah’s story is filled with drama.

If you have never studied the story of Leah, Rachel, and Jacob, I think you will be fascinated with the storyline of rivalry, conflict, deception, envy, oppression, and final redemption. But what I don’t want you to miss is how God can take an ancient story and make it relevant to our world today!

I believe that God has chosen you to read this study at this specific time in your life to teach you something.

If you are open to God’s power to transform your life, I promise, life will not be what you expected!

Pontius Pilate

by Paul L. Maier

In a world full of DVD extras, behind-the-scenes commentary, and social media, people are used to getting the story behind the story. Readers want to understand not just what happened but why. This historical novel of the man who washed his hands of the crucifixion does just that! Award-winning historian and best-selling author Paul L. Maier has created a compelling style of documentary fiction. He uses what is historically known of Pilate’s life and rise to power, adds in the known political climate of first-century Judea, and unveils the colorful, untold story that changed history for all time. He provides intriguing answers to questions such as: What really happened at that most famous of trials? Were the proceedings against Jesus legal? Did cowardice or necessity motivate Pilate’s judgment? What became of this successful Roman politician after his verdict? Filling in the details of Pilate’s early career in Rome, Maier captures the drama of imperial Rome under the all-powerful Tiberius Caesar, the plottings of his political allies and enemies, and his relationship with his beloved but ambitious wife, Procula. His great moment arrives as he exchanges the intrigues of Rome for the bewildering environment of Judea, navigating new and dangerous waters. In Pontius Pilate, Maier paints a picture for modern readers to help them understand the behind-the-scenes complexities, political and religious realities, and ultimately, the humanity of the people we know from Scripture.

Revelation: A Love Letter From God

by Katheryn Maddox Haddad

Revelation is not a book of gloom and doom. It is a book of hope. A book of reassurance that, no matter how bad things get in the world, God is still in control and still loves us like light shimmering in the soul.

It was written during a time when Christians were losing jobs and homes, friends and family. During a time when Christians were being imprisoned, tortured, and killed. They were laying everything on the line for Jesus. Everything! They needed hope. They needed this love letter.

This is a history of the world before Jesus was born, especially the world of the Israelites. It is also an account of Jesus birth, ministry, and death. It ends with the final doom of Satan and the final victory of the church, the heavenly Jerusalem. After all, does not chapter 1, verse 19 state that John was to “write, therefore, what you have seen [past], what is now [present], and what will take place later [future]”?

The scriptures always interpret themselves; therefore, the author takes you through each scene with applicable background scriptures to magnify the meaning with unique clearness.

This is God’s last love letter to the world. He has done everything possible to help us escape hell, including offering his only begotten son to die in our place. We are his children. He loves us and does not want us to be hurt. He tells of the overwhelming joy he can give those who accept his Son as Lord of their life. He also tells us that, if we become Christians, he will protect us as he always protected his children in the past. This is one last reassure. One last love letter from God.

Cast aside all the horror stories you have been told about Revelation. View it now with fresh new eyes, be awed, and be showered with God’s love.

You’re about to learn all about Buddhism…

You have heard about Buddhism, right? Of course, you have heard about it. You have an idea of what it is in your mind. It is not surprising that you have tried practicing what you thought you knew about the teachings of Buddha. The common things you have heard about the Buddism principles, you have tried using or applying in your daily life. Simply said, OUR lives are the same. It is just that we don’t realize it. Most of us forget to stop and think about how we can maximize our existence. We forget to live life because we only think about how to exist until the next day, everyday! This is the exact time we need Buddhism desperately. We need to learn to live our lives, not just exist in this world. People are so much focused on the feeling of hurt and agony they are experiencing throughout their life. I have experienced the same, before I was exposed and introduced to Buddha’s teachings. I took the time to learn his lessons. I needed so much effort and it took a lengthy duration to integrate the secrets into my system that re-shaped my entire life! And NOW, I am ready to share to you the secrets.

The reason I wrote this book is to show you HOW you can improve your life using Buddha’s teachings. I wrote it to show you how you can focus on seeing the bigger picture rather than looking closely in one corner. I do not know you but I certainly know something about you because we are alike. Even if you are newbie or you are actually APPLYING what you know about Buddhism to your advantage, I know you will not stop. I know you want more than what your getting from it. I know you want the best to enjoy your life and you will not stop until you get to the fullest. You will need the greater understanding of simplicity, calmness and inner peace. You can’t just stop until achieve all that you can get. This is it! This is exactly what we will do in this book!

My approach is entirely different because I’m a modern guy. I am very much in the present time. I know how we live in this modern world. I won’t tell you to turn your life upside down and I am sure you would not want to that, too. No worries! I got your back on this. We will go about Buddha’s teachings and APPLY them into our daily, contemporary lives. Because that is what we want, isn’t it? It’s about us having better lives. Improving in our focus. A higher form of happiness and finding the true path to inner peace. Wow, I’m very glad to be sharing this amazing journey with you!

My simplest objective is to help you incorporate Buddhism in your life. I will help you in simplifying your thoughts. I will help you to adopt Zen as a way of being and not just by saying or doing. It is not hard to do. I will show it to you, step by step, so would not get lost. You and I will go to the roots of Buddhism, Mindfulness & Meditation and transform these learning into an incredible experience that will forever change your ways and approach to life. NOW, let us go for it!
