Summary : God placed many parallels to the spiritual realm in the physical universe so the human brain could get some idea of the world that exists beyond the capacity of the human brain. One such parallel is the development of a baby in a mothers womb. Just as God took particles of the earth and made a body for the spirit he created, a woman takes the particles of her body and makes a body for a spirit that will live in that body. That body is developed inher womb and, at birth, that body becomes a womb for a human spirit. The author calls this newborn body The Womb of Time because it is the place where a human spirit is developed in time in preparation for an existence in a new world called Eternity. An embryo in a mothers womb is surrounded by chemicals that can prevent it from developing to a point capable of living in the world outside its womb. In the same way, a human spirit, in the womb of its body, is surrounded by knowledge, the curse from Eden that can prevent it from developing to a point capable of being a spirit with lifewhen it enters eternity. If a physical body is stillborn, no matter how much it is loved it cannot exist with people who are alive. A human spirit that is not alive when its body dies cannot exist with the living who reside in Heaven. God is constantly trying to nourish people in their Womb of Time with the same Word of Life he used to create all things. The human brain, limited to the knowledge it contains, often substitutes confidence for faith and religion for God causing many human spirits to be stillborn when they leave their body. Man's battle is between knowledge and faith.A quick look at the world will reveal the incompetence of knowledge.

Summary : The year is 20—. The dream of a modern exodus awakens Scotland’s first Chief Rabbi Brew Moray. His wife Deborah, undergoing IVF, despairs of ever mothering a child. Later, in a religious radio slot Moray calls on his community to leave Scotland. His message provokes a head-on clash with Scotland’s father figure and first Prime Minister, Angus Montrose. Moray eloquently argues that his call to preserve Jewish continuity is no less radical than Montrose’s realization of Scottish independence from England. Meanwhile, unknown to Moray, Israeli agent Guriat Gaoni is covertly masterminding an audacious mission to rescue the Scottish Jewish community. Israel has learned that Scotland is secretly making a major arms deal with a loose-cannon Middle East regime. Contingent on the agreement, the arms supplier demands that Montrose pass laws to prevent Jews from leaving Scotland. The speculative fiction depicted in Another God has not come to life, not yet. But it could – after Scotland achieves independence. A rabbi’s dream could change the trajectory of one nation and save another nation from destruction. A prime minister’s Machiavellian patriotism could launch a new nation-state on an aimless course into oblivion. One woman’s miracle can produce a love-child. And another woman’s strength and daring might rescue a thousand lives. Scotland’s future history is yet to be written – or is it?

Summary : Alice is making her daughter dinner when her mother Olivia, who left her at a day care center when she was four-years-old, appears at her door. Although Alice has managed to navigate an unforgiving foster care system to build a good life for herself, she has never really recovered from her mother's disappearance. Olivia's sudden reappearance is like a quiet, unexplained gift. Over the next couple of weeks Alice asks Olivia to dinner. Olivia is always dropped off by a friend and sits peacefully as Alice and her daughter talk over the meal. One afternoon Alice gets a call from the hospital telling her that Olivia is dead. The only identification the hospital could find was Alice's number with the word "daughter" written underneath it. She goes to pick up Olivia's things and finds the key to her apartment. It is here that the mystery of Olivia's past is slowly uncovered and Alice begins to understand how the power of hatred can hold a woman down and how the power of friendship can lift her up again. Not since her bestselling book The Friendship Cake has Hinton created characters who are so filled with heartache and fragile hope, that they will become a permanent part of the reader's life.

Summary : Here is a book about adventure, raw experience, and facing inner demons. Niles Elliot Goldstein is a young rabbi who sets out to find God in tough and often scary situations: dogsledding above the Arctic Circle, taking the Silk Road into Central Asia without a visa, being chased by a grizzly bear, cruising with DEA agents through the South Bronx, and spending a night in jail in New York City's Tombs. He explores the connections between struggle and growth, fear and transcendence, and uncertainty and faith, seeking the boundary where the finite meets the Infinite. Goldstein is not alone in making this kind of pilgrimage. There has always been a strong tradition of seekers who looked for revelation outside conventional religious settings and encountered God in moments of anguish, terror, and pain. Goldstein juxtaposes his own experiences with those of some of the great historical figures of Judaism and Christianity -- Jonah and St. John of the Cross, Moses Maimonides and Julian of Norwich, Nachman of Bratslav and Martin Luther -- as well as lesser known mystics and preachers, and he discovers, as they did, that it can sometimes take a journey to the edge to recognize God's presence in our lives.

Summary : The Bible is the most quoted book in the western world, and likely the most misunderstood. It is often thought to be little more than religious mythology, or a collection of moral and ethical guidelines, or a series of quaint but irrelevant legends. But what if the Bible were read on its own terms, as a highly personal and unbelievably passionate love story? What if the Bible is really a wild tale of relentless pursuit, the diary of a God who can’t bear to be separated from the people he loves? In God on Paper you’ll share in a conversation that takes a new look at Scripture, a dialogue that entertains doubts and questions about the value–and the validity–of the Bible. And you’ll encounter an amazing love story of divine proportions. Go ahead and join the conversation. You might be surprised by what you find.

Summary : Dr. Adler, in his discussion, extends and modernizes the argument for the existence of God developed by Aristotle and Aquinas. Without relying on faith, mysticism, or science (none of which, according to Dr. Adler, can prove or disprove the existence of God), he uses a rationalist argument to lead the reader to a point where he or she can see that the existence of God is not necessarily dependent upon a suspension of disbelief. Dr. Adler provides a nondogmatic exposition of the principles behind the belief that God, or some other supernatural cause, has to exist in some form. Through concise and lucid arguments, Dr. Adler shapes a highly emotional and often erratic conception of God into a credible and understandable concept for the lay person.
