This extraordinary document represents a new form of historical research and straightens out many open questions and misinterpretations. It takes the form of direct dialogues between a modern researcher and a member of the Qumran Essene community. Alive around the time of Christ, this community has become the focus of ideas about the connection of Jesus' teachings to earlier traditions.

Join James Goll on an exciting and insightful journey into the visionary world of The Seer! The prophetic movements in church history and in contemporary life are fed by two mighty streams: the prophet, whose revelation is primarily verbal, and the seer, whose revelation is more visionary in nature. You will discover the prophetic power of dreams, visions, and life under the open heavens.

I had 3 dreams over the course of a year that 3 of my friends were pregnant. The dreams occurred before they knew themselves. Next, my brother past and the dream about him answered something that I had long questioned about Heaven. Now, I pay attention to my dreams. Listening to Ema Mckinley's Rush of Heaven adds further confirmation.

Today, the US Constitution is the oldest, continually-operating instrument of government in the world. But to think of the Constitution as a fully-formed, canonical document is to miss out on an honest, well-rounded grasp of American history. Now, more than ever, any well-informed citizen should understand how the Constitution lives, breathes, and endures.

All Americans are familiar with the story of the Pilgrims--persecuted for their religion in the Old World, they crossed the ocean to settle in a wild and dangerous land. But for most of us, the story ends after their brutal first winter at Plymouth, with a supposedly peaceful encounter with the Native Americans and a happy Thanksgiving.

Jim was never a religious man. When it came to matters of God and faith, he was ambivalent. But as he lay in the hospital bed, clinically dead for more than 11 hours, his consciousness was transported to the wonders of Heaven and the horrors of hell. When he returned to this world, he brought back the missing piece his soul had been longing for.

Story was lost in a weird narration. Written, it would be 90% italics. Emotion was over emphasized too much of the time. It just makes it an uneasy listen. Sorry, narrator.

“Ema, give me your hand.” These were the words Jesus spoke to Ema on Christmas Eve - the night He straightened her crooked foot, hand, neck, and spine, and restored her mobility. Easter weekend, 18 years earlier, an ordinary workday turned into a nightmare when Ema McKinley passed out and was left hanging upside down in the storage room. Rather than improving, Ema’s body became progressively bent and disfigured.

This is a story that needed to be told. Didn't even have to leave the planet to meet Jesus. And, the same thing happening in the Book of Luke...incredible.
If you don't like people that talk Jesus a lot, this may not be for you. If anyone has good reason to talk Jesus, she certainly does. Not wild about the narrator.

It all began on a fateful day in 1992, when author Kevin Zadai died on a hospital operating table after a surgery. While in heaven, he came face to face with the Savior, Jesus Christ, who later came to Kevin regularly in visitations after he survived his near-death experience. What Jesus revealed to Kevin in visitations about God's upcoming kingdom on Earth and Jesus' future return are revealed in his new nonfiction book, Days of Heaven on Earth.

This is not a story, it is a 2 hour 47 minute sermon. Can get this for free on TV everyday. This guy has several audio books averaging 1.5 hours each. He could have said it all in one book and gave people their money's worth. I can't believe that this has so many 5 star reviews; because, the sermon is not even good.

At the tender age of two, baseball prodigy Christian Haupt began sharing vivid memories of being a baseball player in the 1920s and '30s. From riding cross-country on trains to his fierce rivalry with Babe Ruth, Christian described historical facts about the life of American hero and baseball legend Lou Gehrig that he could not have possibly known at the time. Distraught by her son's uncanny revelations, Christian's mother, Cathy, embarked on a sacred journey of discovery.

We live in a world of near-universal acceptance that once our lives on the Earth come to an end, we continue to a greater world. Whether that destination is called heaven, nirvana, or simply the other side, tradition teaches us that there is, in most cases, a fairy-tale ending to life, a place where joy and harmony reign supreme. Yet, as this book attests, there is still more to heaven and Earth than is dreamt of in our philosophies.

This collection of stories details how the spirits met their end, his/her life story, how special the person was, how much the family loved them, and how much they miss them. After 2 or 3 stories, you realize that you can only enjoy this much clairvoyance when you actually knew the spirit personally. This one is a dud.
