How did the replication bomb we call ”life” begin and where in the world, or rather, in the universe, is it heading? Writing with characteristic wit and an ability to clarify complex phenomena (the New York Times described his style as ”the sort of science writing that makes the reader feel like a genius”), Richard Dawkins confronts this ancient mystery.
Chana Cox was a brilliant woman who lived a remarkable and incredibly full life until her passing in March 2019 at 76 years old.In her honor, her children have begun to re-publish memorial editions of her books. The first of these publications is this, her most popular book. A River Went out of Eden tells the engrossing stories of her life and those around her, in the beautiful but unforgiving, Idaho wilderness area.This memorial edition of the book includes never-before-published photographs and letters.
This book entitled, Garden of Eden Found, is divided into three almost equal parts. Part I of the book is exactly what the title says. It reveals and explains the exact geographical location of the ancient site of the Garden of Eden. This is an absolutely new and a previously undiscovered site. People suppose that we must yet wait on a prophet of God to reveal its location, but this book explains that God through the prophet Moses said everything he could to explain the location of the Garden of Eden in the second chapter of Genesis. It is just that the names of the lands and rivers have changed. The original thing in this work, however, is that the ancient site of the Garden of Eden was located upon the North American continent. Note that according to Genesis 1:10 each land was called earth. Thus, it could have been on any continent. There has never been one fact of evidence to show that the Garden of Eden was located in the Middle East anyway. This has only been a supposition of the so-called learned; even those who write the text books; and most of whom do not believe in God or in revelation. The author has simply put together the Genesis account of Eden with the latter-day revelations concerning Adam-ondi-Ahman in America. Part II of this book reveals the ultimate meaning of the six days and the six nights and Sabbath of the creation account in Genesis chapter one. No one has ever discovered nor understood their ultimate meaning before this work. The author submits that this concept is the greatest concept that can be conceived by the mind of man concerning ultimate reality. This concept ties together the law of eternal progression, the order of the universes of the cosmos, and the days and nights of creation as one and the same thing. So the author begins Part II of his book with the following paragraph. If I were a scientist and was speaking before my other colleagues, then, I would name my address, "The Number and Order of the Universes of the Cosmos." If I was a philosopher and was presenting this topic before my fellow philosophers, I would entitle my presentation, "The Law of Eternal Progression to Ultimate Continuum." But if I happened to be a theologian, and was preaching a sermon to my parishioners, I would call my message, "The Meaning of the Six Days and Six Nights and a Sabbath of Creation." This is because these three subjects concern the same ultimate reality. The first is scientific, the second is philosophical, and the third is religious. Often the terms for universe and the cosmos are used interchangeably. Actually, this is the concept of mankind at the present time. Most people, including scientists, the philosophers, and the theologians, consider that the universe is the cosmos and that the cosmos is the universe. However, this is simply not the true case of the matter, for the cosmos is the sum total of the series of the twelve universes of the cosmos. However, would anyone have ever entertained the idea that the answer is to be found in the first chapter of the Book of Genesis in the Bible? Who would have thought that God had hidden it in the simple account of the six days and the six nights and Sabbath of creation? I will attempt to show, in plainness and simplicity, that this is the true interpretation. SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt"Part III of this book explains the historic meaning of the symbolism in the Book of Revelation. The new truth to understand is that they represent only natural things and historical events of the past two-thousand years of Christian history. There are three general principles that we must accept in order to understand the symbolism of t
Have you wondered about life after the events in the Book of Genesis took place? Are you interested in the early church and its growth? Do you like quests and intriguing plots? If so, The Garden Of Eden And Beyond is the book for you. Noah, Abram and others listened and responded when God spoke. Key elements of life B.C.E. shift to a drama on the world stage in 1000 A.D. as a contentious world emerges from the "Dark Ages." Sten, the shepherd son of a Viking father and an Arabic mother, finds an altarpiece that facilitates relationships with the Lord. Sten is forced to become a warrior in the Caliph's army; but he and his wife, Janna, become Christians and guiding lights in molding a better world. God's plan leads them to become role models in adventures through Byzantium, Mesopotamia, Norway, England, and the New World. This novel moves through time and space and, although fictitious, is replete with historical facts. Don Legler spent ten years as a Methodist minister serving small rural churches in Florida. With a M.Div. degree from Emory University and a M.Th. degree from Garrett Seminary, he authored over 500 sermons. Holding B.S., D.D.S., and Ph.D. degrees, Don had a professional career in dental education and research with over fifty professional and scientific publications. His travels and observations in Norway, Sweden, and Iraq provided the stimulus for writing this novel. He observed the roles these countries played in the spread of Christianity throughout history and was impressed to still see remnants of Christian churches among the ruins of ancient Babylon and Ur. Thus the stage was set in 1000 A.D. for this moving story of characters seeking to sustain their Christian faith and fulfill God's plan for their lives.
