  • The Restitution of All Things

Did Jesus of Nazareth really intend to start a brand-new religion called Christianity? Or did he come to fulfill that which all of the Hebrew prophets had foretold since the fall of man, something the holy scriptures mysteriously call the restitution of all things? Veteran journalist and author Joseph Farah seeks to shed light on what few sermons today teach about, few authors expound upon, and few Bible studies explore: the coming kingdom of God.

Pastor Tom Doyle has spent 11 years as a full-time missionary in the Middle East and Central Asia, spreading the Word of Jesus Christ. Throughout his journey, he has encountered a staggering number of Muslims who were first introduced to Jesus through a vision or dream so powerful they eventually turned from their lifelong religion of Islam and embraced Christ as their Savior.

I have listened to three books by this author. The stories in this book are not very detailed compared to the ones in the other two books. If I could only buy one of his books, Killing Christians would be my choice. In the book he is more detailed and it is read by someone else, which I prefer.

Followers of Christ need to relearn what it means to stand courageously for their faith rather than merely survive in a climate of fear. Instead of motivating believers to action, today's headlines appear to be paralyzing them. Standing in the Fire demonstrates the church triumphant through the lives of people who stood strong and didn't run away in the face of overwhelming danger. These Middle Eastern heroes of faith fear God more than terrorist groups like ISIS.

I know what you’re thinking, I should have known. But actually I thought his book would be less crude than his YouTube videos. Nope. He has so many good things to say and says then well but when he interjects information about his personal sexual lifestyle, it ruins it for me. Not a book I would want to share with anyone or keep. Sadly, I’m returning it.

The bestselling Biblical fantasy novel series Chronicles of the Nephilim has opened a door for Christian imagination and theology like none other. But many have appreciated the appendices of each novel as much as the novels. Author Brian Godawa shares the Biblical and ancient historical and mythical research that undergirds the fiction. Now all those appendices have been placed together in one book for those who want serious study of the topics of the Watchers, Nephilim, and the Biblical Cosmic War of the Seed.

I was hoping to get a more clear and concise picture of the biblical text concerning the Giants. But Instead, it was a whole lot of fiction from his other books mixed in, which only created confusion for me. If I wanted fiction I would’ve purchased fiction.
I think I will go back to reading Michael Heiser.

On account of the superficial points of agreement between Islam and Christianity, many don't see how tremendously deep the divides between them really are, and fewer still have considered the evidence for each faith. How is jihad different from the Crusades? Can we know the life of Jesus as well as the life of Muhammad? What reason is there to believe in one faith over the other, and what difference can the Gospel really make?

A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century.

Prophecy is leaping off the pages of today's headlines. The return of Israel. Increased turmoil in the Middle East. The rise of ISIS. China and Russia's presence in the Fertile Crescent. The exponentially increasing technological explosion. The "Trojan horse" refugee crisis. America's collapsing borders. The rise of the Sodom and Gomorrah spirit. The targeting of Christians around the world and particularly in the Middle East and the United States.

This book loses much of it’s value the moment it comes off the press. I’m not sure why I even bought it. It’s just one of those books that sensationalizes the daily headlines and tries to apply the Bible to the meaning of it all.
Nothing new here. I’m returning it.

Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity, complete with friendships, investigations, and supernatural dreams along the way. Providing an intimate window into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi's inner turmoil will challenge Christians and Muslims alike.

The most important words ever written are the Ten Commandments. These words changed the world when they were first presented at Mt. Sinai to Israelites, and they are changing it now. They are the foundation stones of Western civilization. Given their staggering importance, you would think that all societies, and certainly our educational and religious institutions, would be intent on studying them closely. Sadly, this is not the case.
