Mrs. Joy Thomas and her husband ventured to India, looking for a living Master in their quest for Knowledge about the purpose of life. Both, staunch Christians, were from working class families and were brought up by loving parents who valued duty, morality, and service to others. When they first heard of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba in 1983, they felt that the ultimate grace that could be won in a life time was showered on them by a miracle. The pure divine sparks in their hearts attracted Bhagawan who showered His divine grace and love and guided them in their spiritual evolution. The words of Bhagawan Baba, ""Life is a challenge, meet it; Life is love, enjoy it; Life is a dream, realise it; Life is a game, play it,"" created immense joy in the author and prompted her to write a series of four books with those divine phrases as titles, under the inspiration of Bhagawan. There are experiences in the book like the one in which the doctor attending to her hot swollen leg was overjoyed one morning, on seeing sudden improvement, and said, ""It is dramatically better."" It was Baba's grace. The leg, which did not respond to any medicine, was cured by her application of vibhuthi over it from a packet that mysteriously plopped on the floor of her room on the previous night, which the doctor was not aware. There are experiences through which lessons were learnt to enjoy life, to expand one's love towards all, to meet challenges in life. She firmly believed that life is love and we can enjoy it. This is the fourth book in the 'Life Is...' series. Each of these books is standalone and can be read without reading the entire series.

Book excerpt: Is the world an illusion? Is our Universe a hologram? This is a magical world. “All there Is” is you; you are the magnificent reflection of “All That Is” in the world of Existence and three dimensions. Let us wake up from this illusion. We have to realize we will leave this body one day; we have to realize all of our possessions will be left behind as we depart for our next new adventure. This is not a book of divine informative revelation. These words do not come from heaven. These writings (knowledge) arose in the Heart through Universal Intuition and were written from Oneself to oneself without the interference of the author’s personal thoughts (ego). What you call ‘I’ is your identity. Bonding yourself with your identity creates the ‘I am’ ego personality. This identity of yours is not actually you, it is an illusory state of what you are not. In Reality, you are not your ego-identity. The external world and its social parameters play a big role in forming this ego-identity. You do not own anything, no name, no form or any image that you can call ’I’. You have not constructed or created these. You do not own anything you think you can control or possess. When you identify yourself with these things, the things that you are not (or do not own), you are creating a self-imposed prison for yourself and living inside of it. In other words, you create your ‘ego-personality. In this case, we have to ask the following question - who am I Really? Are you really all that you claim to own, names, forms and images? Are you only made up of body and mind? When you identify with these beliefs and those of the collective world consciousness you get lost and break away from your true Reality. When you claim ownership of these names, forms and images, you create your ‘ego-personality. Whenever you say ‘I am’ this or that, you are identifying with that thing which you now claim as your own and you unify yourself with that thing. If you do not identify with anything, if you do not claim ownership of anything, the ‘I’ ceases to exist. Removing the ‘I’, dissolving it, is the ultimate freedom we seek. The walls of the self-imposed prison of ego personality you possessively created will fall away. Here, in this liberated state of being, the necessity for choice or decision falls away too. You act just as is needed in each moment of life as it arises in the Now. Thoughts of “should I have done this or that?” will disappear. The mind is like software running on a computer. The “virus” that corrupts the software is the ego. It is this ego-personality that creates erroneous beliefs and then claims ownership of them. Only when this virus is removed by an antivirus program, Mind reveals itself in its full capacity. With this cleaning up process, human minds become increasingly liberated and expansively intelligent. In this Book, knowledge of advanced life is being released into the public publishing domain for the first time. This life can be described with concepts of “Absolute Human”, “Birth of Absolute Humanity”, “Experiencing Non-Existence” and “Beyond Non-Existence”. We believe through our life experience that the only way to change our individual and collective point of view is to know NON-EXISTENCE. The will behind the writing and publishing of this knowledge in the Book arose in servitude.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A case for literary critics and other humanists to stop wallowing in their aestheticized helplessness and instead turn to poetry, comedy, and love. Literary criticism is an agent of despair, and its poster child is Walter Benjamin. Critics have spent decades stewing in his melancholy. What if instead we dared to love poetry? To choose comedy over Hamlet’s tragedy, romance over Benjamin’s suicide on the edge of France, of Europe, of civilization? Paul Bové challenges young lit critters to throw away their shades and let the sun shine in. Love’s Shadow is his three-step manifesto for a new literary criticism that risks sentimentality and melodrama and eschews self-consciousness. The first step is to choose poetry. There has been since the time of Plato a battle between philosophy and poetry. Philosophy has championed misogyny, while poetry has championed women, like Shakespeare’s Rosalind. Philosophy is ever so stringent; try instead the sober cheerfulness of Wallace Stevens. Bové’s second step is to choose the essay. He praises Benjamin’s great friend and sometime antagonist Theodor Adorno, who gloried in the writing of essays, not dissertations and treatises. The third step is to choose love. If you want a Baroque hero, make it Rembrandt, who brought lovers to life in his paintings. Putting aside passivity and cynicism would amount to a revolution in literary studies. Bové seeks nothing less, and he has a program for achieving it.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Everlasting Gospels are the Holy Words spoken directly from God's mouth. The voice of The Heavenly Father transcends from His High throne to all mankind to adhere to. The Word, which created the world in the beginning, is now to recreate, reconstruct, and reform the entire world and humanity according to The Father's Will as it is done in heaven. The kingdoms of this world have become the Kingdom of our Lord and His Christ and this Working Document is the only Constitution of the New World. The contents of this Everlasting Gospel is a testimony to the fulfilment of the promise of Our Lord Jesus Christ, that the Comforter will come to teach all things, lead people to the accurate knowledge of the truth and inform of things to come (John 16: 7-14), which has in truth materialised. The Will of Our Heavenly Father is done on earth as it is done in heaven. John 16: 7-14 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” His Coming was revealed to many prophets, both past, and present. Astrologers and scientists are aware of His Omnipotence, Omnipresence, and Omniscience. Some try to conceal or ignore the truth, while others are confused, disturbed, and without the capacity to comprehend. The purpose of this compilation is to reveal the Truth for the salvation of the entire world. The Holy Spirit is personified and His Everlasting Gospels, in this Divine Document, expatiates and shines greater light on many issues affecting our lives and environments physically, socially, and spiritually. The gospels provide answers to questions that have remained unanswered, challenge misconceived doctrines, corrects entrenched wrong believes, and reframes questions that were, hitherto, wrongly asked. The maxim which says that “a tree is known by its fruit' is germane to the Everlasting Gospel as the unparalleled wisdom in its contents affirm that God, the Quickening Spirit, is on earth directing all the affairs in the world, setting the captives free, and fulfilling His promises. God has answered the plea in the Lord's Prayer as nominated in the Holy Bible, i.e. " Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is done in heaven". That Kingdom has come. It is the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, a Kingdom in reality and in practice with God Himself as the foundation and Head of the Monarchy. The government is theocratic and Love is the law. The Holy Spirit is warning everyone about the need to turn a new leaf and begin to love one another and all creation of God to escape the impending predicaments and calamities already befalling the world, and, especially, the final judgement of God. The Everlasting Gospel Volume 1 is a collection of some of the numerous Gospels and Bible Lectures delivered daily, and sometimes twice daily every day of the year, by the Holy Spirit personified in Leader Olumba Olumba Obu over a period spanning over forty years. The Gospels are delivered in the Efik dialect and interpreted into other languages, including English, by human interpreters. Interpreting Efik to English is a challenging task as Efik is a complex language with a lot of nuances and contexts. The priority of the interpreters is to, as much as possible, provide the English equivalents of the gospels being delivered and not try to contextualize or second guess the meaning.

Book excerpt: It’s one thing to know the story of the Bible. It’s another thing to live it. Grounded in carefully selected Scripture, Believe, NKJV is a unique spiritual growth experience that takes you on a journey to think, act, and be more like Jesus. Pastor Randy Frazee walks you through the ten key beliefs of the Christian faith, the ten key Practices of a Jesus-follower, and the ten key Virtues that characterize someone who is becoming more like Jesus. Every believer needs to ask these three questions: What do I believe? What should I do? Who am I becoming? What you believe in your heart will define who you become. God wants you to become like Jesus - it is the most truthful and powerful way to live - and the journey to becoming like Jesus begins by thinking like Jesus. When you study the life of Jesus you will notice a distinct pattern: Jesus faithfully lived in a purposeful way. Jesus compared the Christian life to a vine. He is the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in the vine of Christ, over time you will produce amazing and scrumptious fruit at the end of your branches for all to see and taste. You become like Jesus. Each chapter uses short topical passages from the New King James Version (NKJV) to help you live the story of the Bible. As you journey through this Bible, whether in a group or on your own, one simple truth will become undeniably clear: what you believe drives everything.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: THE LSV IS FINALLY HERE: A BRAND NEW, LITERAL, EASY-TO-READ TRANSLATION OF THE COMPLETE HOLY BIBLE—BOTH OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS. This is the first edition of the LSV available for Google Play. The LSV is published by Covenant Press, the publishing arm of the Covenant Christian Coalition. *A modern, literal, word-for-word (formal equivalence) English translation of the Holy Scriptures utilizing English word rearrangement when necessitated for readability. The LSV is the most literal translation of The Holy Bible, with significant improvement over previous literal translations, including Robert Young’s excellent Young’s Literal Translation. *Preservation of verb tenses wherever possible. *Utilization of the transliterated Tetragrammaton in the Old Testament. All uppercase LORD is used in the New Testament when a reference to YHWH is likely. *Removal of many Hebrew and Greek transliterations; remember, transliterations are generally not translations. *Unlike most translations, justified typographic alignment consistent with the style of the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek biblical autographs. The ancient caesura mark is used for easy readability of poetic literature such as the Psalms. *Inclusion of the verses found in older English translations such as the King James Version (KJV) that are not found in many modern translations; and inclusion of the alternative LXX Genesis chronology set next to the MT. These are contained within bolded double brackets for distinction. *Capitalized pronouns and other nounal forms when referring to God, Christ, or the Holy Spirit. References to the Messenger of the LORD are also capitalized when the subject appears to be a clear reference to God or the Messiah (as found in translations such as the NKJV). The goal of any good translation is to produce a readable text that preserves the original autographic meaning and comes as close as possible to translating, word-for-word, manuscripts that accurately represent the original writings. It’s with this goal in mind that the Literal Standard Version (LSV) was written—a modern, yet literal English translation based upon the most prolific texts: the Masoretic Text (MT) for the Old Testament and the Textus Receptus (TR) and Majority Text (M) for the New. However, in certain, specific instances other manuscript versions and text-types are used where the evidence seems incontrovertible (e.g., the LXX and DSS in the Hebrew and Aramaic; the Alexandrian in the Greek). ANOTHER TRANSLATION, WHY? There have been a slew of new English translations in the past half-century, which may cause some to wonder why the need for another. The translators agree with the premise that different translations can serve different demographics and different reading levels to maximize exposure to God’s word. In this sense, the LSV is not a competitor to other excellent translations, but is complimentary. As the most literal modern English translation, the LSV is an excellent resource for deep and thoughtful Bible study and research, essentially an interlinear in terms of word-for-word translation, but arranged with English sentence structure.

This book was released on 2014-01-16 with total page 344 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: C. S. Lewis--On the Christ of a Religious Economy. II. Knowing Salvation, opens with a discussion of the Anscombe-Lewis debate (the theological issues relating to revelation and reason, Christ the Logos). This leads into Lewis on the Church (the body of Christ) and his understanding of religion: how is salvation enacted through the churches, how do we know we are saved? This concludes with, for Lewis, the question of sufferance and atonement, substitution and election, deliverance and redemption: heaven, hell, resurrection, and eternity--Christ's work of salvation on the cross. What did Lewis say of humanity in relation to God, now Immanuel, God with us, incarnate, crucified, resurrected, and ascended for humanity? What of Lewis's own death, and that of his wife? What does this tell us about the triune God of Love, who is Love? This volume forms the second part of the third book in a series of studies on the theology of C. S. Lewis titled C. S. Lewis: Revelation and the Christ. The books are written for academics and students, but also, crucially, for those people, ordinary Christians, without a theology degree who enjoy and gain sustenance from reading Lewis's work. www.cslewisandthechrist.net
