أول الخلفاء الراشدين أبو بكر الصديق

by محمد رضا

قد كنت شديد الرغبة في تأليف سيرة رسول اللّه صلى اللّه عليه وسلم لنشرها على العالم الإسلامي فقضيت الأيام والليالي الطوال في الإطلاع والبحث في كتب السير فجمعت شتاتها وشرحت الغامض منها وحققت الروايات وأثبت تواريخ الوقائع ورددت على الاعتراضات والترهات ردوداً مدعَّمة بالبراهين الساطعة والحجج القاطعة، فجاء الكتاب وافياً بغرضي من حيث إيصال المعلومات الصحيحة إلى العالم الإسلامي.  ولما فرغ طبعه، تلقاه الناس بالقبول والاستسحان وأقبلوا على مطالعته بشوق وشغف، ونال بحمد اللّه وفضله رضا العامة والخاصة وتواردت عليّ رسائل التفريط والتشجيع من الكبراء والعلماء والأدباء حتى عجزت عن شكرهم على ثقتهم بشخصي العاجز الضعيف، وشعرت بقوة تدفعني إلى مواصلة البحث والتأليف بالرغم من كثرة المشاغل الدنيوية.  وقد سألني كثير من الأصدقاء الأعزاء أن أتبع سيرة رسول اللّه بسير الخلفاء بنفس الطريقة التي انتهجتها فسرتني فكرتهم ولم يسعني إلا إجابة طلبهم واستخرت اللّه تعالى أن أكتب سيرة أبي بكر الصديق رضي اللّه عنه فإنه أول الخلفاء الذين أمرنا رسول اللّه بالاقتداء بهم والاهتداء بهديهم. لما توفي النبي صلى اللّه عليه وسلم ارتجت العرب واختلف المسلمون ولا سيما الأنصار والمهاجرون في الخلافة فتدارك الأمر أبو بكر بحكمته وسرعة بديهته وتمت له البيعة بالإجماع.  وقد برهن رضي اللّه عنه أنه أكفأ رجل وأنه رجل الساعة وقتئذ لأن العرب عندما سمعوا بوفاة رسول اللّه ارتد كثير منهم واستفحل أمر المرتدين في جزيرة العرب، وظهر المتنبئون وجمعوا جيوشهم وثاروا على المسلمين.

الفصل في الملل و الآهواء و النحل

by ابن حزم

إن كثيراً من الناس كتبوا في افتراق الناس في دياناتهم ومقالاتهم كتباً كثيرة جداً فبعض أطال وأسهب وأكثر وهجر واستعمل الأغاليط والشغب فكان ذلك شاغلاً عن الفهم قاطعاً دون العلم وبعض حذف وقصر وقلل واختصر واضرب عن كثير من قوي معارضات أصحاب المقالات فكان في ذلك غير منصف لنفسه في أن يرضى لها بالغبن في الإبانة وظالماً لخصمه في أن لم يوفه حق اعتراضه وباخساً حق من قرأ كتابه إذ لم يغنه عن غيره وكلهم إلا تحلة القسم عقد كلامه تعقيداً يتعذر فهمه على كثير من أهل الفهم وحلق على المعاني من بعد حتى صار ينسي آخر كلامه أوله وأكثر هذا منهم ستائر دون فساد معانيهم فكان هذا منهم غير محمود في عاجله وآجله.

Ο Θεός του Αβραάμ, του Ισαάκ και του Ιακώβ

by Gabriel Agbo Matilda Mavroidi

Οι υποσχέσεις του Θεού που αναφέρονται στην Αγία Γραφή δεν απογοητεύουν. Αυτό το βιβλίο γράφτηκε για να σε βοηθήσει να κατακτήσεις όλες τις υποσχέσεις του Θεού για τη ζωή σου. Είναι μία προσεκτική και λεπτομερής μελέτη, με προσωπικές μαρτυρίες, για την ικανότητα και την προθυμία του Θεού να εκτελέσει όλα τα λεγόμενά Του προς εμάς. Είπε ότι επαγρυπνά πάνω απ’ τα λόγια Του για να τα εκπληρώσει. Εδώ, θα κοιτάξουμε κριτικά τις δυναμικές μίας θείας υπόσχεσης· πώς εγκαθίσταται, διατηρείται και καλλιεργείται για να αποφέρει καρπούς. Κάθε υπόσχεση που αναφέρεται στην Αγία Γραφή έχει την αρχή, την επιλογή του χρόνου και τις προϋποθέσεις. Πρέπει πάντα να το γνωρίζουμε αυτό για να μπορούμε με τέλειο και άνετο τρόπο να συντονιζόμαστε με τη θέληση του Θεού στη ζωή μας.

Το Μυστικό - Βιβλίο 1ο - Φρικιό Μυαλού.

by Katrina Kahler Άννα Βάντη

Όταν η 12χρονη Τες μετακομίζει στην καινούρια γειτονιά, προσπαθεί να πιάσει φιλίες με το αγόρι στο διπλανό σπίτι, ένα συνομήλικο αγόρι, τον Σαμ. Η Τες δε γνωρίζει ότι ο Σαμ έχει μια υπερδύναμη που πρέπει οπωσδήποτε να την κρατήσει μυστικό. Τα άλλα παιδιά νομίζουν ότι είναι παράξενος και τον αποφεύγουν. Αλλά με τον ερχομό της Τες, όλα αλλάζουν. Όμως, ο Σαμ δεν είναι ο μόνος που ενδιαφέρεται για την Τες. Το πιο δημοφιλές αγόρι της τάξης, ο Τζέικ Κόλλινς, αρχίζει να της δίνει σημασία και έτσι ο Σαμ αποφασίζει ότι δεν έχει καμία ελπίδα. Τότε, όταν η συμπεριφορά του Τζέικ προς τον Σαμ χειροτερεύει, ο Σαμ αποφασίζει να του δώσει ένα μάθημα. Τι συμβαίνει όμως όταν ο Σαμ το παρατραβάει; Τελικά ανακαλύπτει η Τες την υπερδύναμη του;

¡ Qué Bella es la Vida Después de la Muerte !

by Lilian G. Selvaggio Richard Martini

El exitoso autor de "El Otro Lado" (Flipside) (¡dos veces Nº1 en su género en Amazon!), en “¡Qué Bella es la Vida Después de la Muerte: Más Aventuras del Otro Lado," da un paso cuántico hacia el más allá, incluye entrevistas con científicos que discuten el origen de la conciencia, comparando experiencias cercanas a la muerte (NDE) con sesiones de entre-vidas (LBL), e incluye también entrevistas con personas que afirman estar hablando desde la otra vida. Hay nuevas sesiones de entre-vidas con afirmaciones sorprendentes de contacto con el más allá, de experiencia de Dios y comprensión del viaje de la vida. El Volumen Uno incluye un prólogo por Charles Grodin, entrevistas con científicos que tratan la conciencia fuera del cerebro; el Neurocientífico Mario Beauregard ("Guerras del Cerebro”(Brain Wars), el Dr. Bruce Greyson, padre de la investigación sobre las NDEs, la investigación de la Dra. Helen Wambach junto con la del Dr. Michael Newton ("Viaje de las Almas"). Incluye entrevistas con personas que tuvieron experiencias cercanas a la muerte, como David Bennett ("Viaje con un Propósito"), Jeremy Kagan, el Dr. Rajiv Parti y Jeffry Martini. El libro entrevista al hipnoterapeuta Scott De Tamble, entrenado en el instituto Newton, compara los relatos del Dr. Eben Alexander ("Evidencia del Cielo") y Colton Burpo ("El Cielo es Real.") El autor explora su propio viaje no convencional al interior de esta investigación, e incluye su propia sesión de entre-vidas. En todo el libro se intercalan transcripciones de sesiones de entre-vidas con personas muy inusuales que tienen recuerdos claros no solamente de sus vidas pasadas sino del plano entre vidas donde ellos afirman haber elegido su vida presente. Extensamente investigado, sorprendente en su alcance, "¡Qué Bella es la Vida Después de la Muerte!" lleva al lector a un paseo alocado, por el camino de ladrillos amarillos, hasta el Gran Más Allá.

1,000 Days

by Jonathan Falwell

There is a universal restlessness today among believers, young and old--unease, unhappiness, and unrest that exists in our pursuit of happiness. Unarguably we find the answer in the life and salvation of Jesus Christ. Undeniably the miracles of His virgin birth, death on the cross, and resurrection from the grave hold the key to eternal life and ultimate joy. But what if in addition to these awaited a miracle revealed in Jesus' three years of public ministry, the roughly 1,000 days that followed His life of otherwise relative obscurity--the 1,000 days that were intentionally lived and documented? In 1,000 Days Jonathan Falwell presents the unique chance to study this miracle, looking closely at those last three years in Jesus' life and revealing vital information form the gospels for our lives today. Meet Jesus like never before when you take a second (or maybe third or fourth) look at what He said in those 1,000 days. Each chapter also includes a special Bible study for use either by individuals or small groups. Find rest in His invitation to make His mission your mission. Discover, as Falwell has, that a picture of the life of Jesus is worth a thousand days.

1,000 Mitzvahs

by Linda Cohen

When her father passed away in 2006, Linda Cohen's busy life as a mother, wife, and entrepreneur came to a screeching halt. She took a spiritual sabbatical to work through her grief, and she came out of it resolved to embark upon a project: perform one thousand acts of kindness-mitzvahs-to honor her father's memory.1,000 Mitzvahs shares Cohen's two-and-a-half-year journey from sorrow to inspiration through simple daily acts of kindness. She presents each mitzvah as a short vignette, and the myriad forms they take-from helping the elderly to donating to good causes to baking and collecting food for others-highlight the many ways in which one person can touch the lives of others. As she pursues her quest, Cohen finds that her life is improved by these small acts-that every time she goes out of her way to do something good for someone else, she enhances her own well-being.More than a touching story of a daughter's love for her father, 1,000 Mitzvahs is a testament to the transformational power of kindness, and a call to arms for those who would like to follow in Cohen's footsteps with their own mitzvahs-no matter how large or how small.

1, 2, 3 John and Jude: Established in Truth ... Marked by Love

by John F. Macarthur

In the face of false teachings about Jesus, the apostle John took a direct approach. "I heard Jesus speak," he wrote. "I saw him . . . I even touched him." Just as we would write about someone we knew and loved, John told the early believers the truth about the Savior. But he didn't let them off the hook without an examination of their lives. "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us" (1 John 1:9). John was not alone in his concern about the influence of false teachers in the early church. Jude, a half-brother of Christ, also wrote to the believers. In his letter, he firmly warned against defecting from true biblical faith, urged all believers to fight for truth, and encouraged all followers of Jesus to stand firm in spite of intense spiritual warfare. The MacArthur Bible Studies provide intriguing examinations of the whole of Scripture. Each guide incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Word of God with guidance from John MacArthur.

1, 2, and 3 John

by Karen H. Jobes Clinton E. Arnold

Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament brings together commentary features rarely gathered in one volume. Written by notable evangelical scholars, each volume treats the literary context and structure of the passage in the original Greek, and each author provides an original translation based on the literary structure. The series consistently provides the main point, an exegetical outline, verse-by-verse commentary, and theology in application in each section of every commentary. Critical scholarship informs each step but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author’s message as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find these books beneficial. The Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series covers the entire New Testament in twenty volumes; Clinton E. Arnold serves as general editor. 1-3 John In her commentary on John’s letters, Karen H. Jobes writes to bridge the distance between academic biblical studies and pastors, students, and laypeople who are looking for an in-depth treatment of the issues raised by these New Testament books. She approaches the three letters of John as part of the corpus that includes John’s gospel, while rejecting an elaborate redactional history of that gospel that implicates the letters. Jobes treats three major themes of the letters under the larger rubric of who has the authority to interpret the true significance of Jesus, an issue that is pressing in our religiously pluralistic society today with its many voices claiming truth about God.
