Come With Us for This Extraordınary Journey of Discovery! Let’s Get Acquainted With the Books Discoverıng the Secret of the Universe! This book is penned down in order to introduce you a piece of work, that is so unbelievably and astonishingly perfect that it will surprise you with the high truths and grand scientific discoveries contained therein and will make some of you say “How come I have never heard of it until now!” (Or could not really discover it). The main subject of study of these books is the following: To give correct answers to three basic questions of existence, which have remained as the unknown secrets of the universe that have been always wondered by the humanity. The discovery of the right answers in these areas has been possible not only with the use of the mind/intellect which is incapable of reaching to the truth on its own but rather with the common guidance of divine revelation and the mind. Nevertheless, the answers to the questions that were asked have been discovered solely with rational inferences and logical evidences. These three questions are: “Where did this universe and those within it come from? Where will they go? And Why are they here, what is their mission? That is to ask “What are we doing here?” High truths, which the whole humanity needs and which are appealing to all those who look for the explanation of the basic reality of existence and which is more interesting for the world of science and the scientists and which is brought by divine revelation, are discovered once again and proved with rational methods in these works. Especially today, while quantum physics, astronomy and astrophysics have reached to such advanced levels, common answers are looked for these three questions on matter, universe and human being; the science and these works study the same subjects and share a common ground of work. Here you are: The work, which contains in itself a spiritual/immaterial treasury for people who have an irresistible interest and passion for science and learning, is called RISALE-I NUR (TREATISE OF LIGHT). The content of the book is composed of 19 basic epistles selected from the Collection of Risale-i Nur. Some selected parts related to the subject from 23rd Word Epistle of Nature, Epistle of Resurrection, first eight Words and some other epistles are included in our book. The main texts from Risale-i Nur are placed in the beginning, the words and concepts are explained in the footnotes and the explanatory texts are provided afterwards. In addition, occasionally, as the need arises, explanatory texts are included within the text of the book in the form of an intermediary note. The first part of our book, which consists of two main sections is entitled as “Discovering the Value of the Treasure of Faith.” In this section, the following is presented: the meaning and the importance of the faith and worship, which are proposed by the Religion to the man; how the hidden secret of the universe is solved by the religion; the beauty of faith and how the true value of man comes to light with faith, and the levels of Qur’an and philosophy in terms of understanding the Secret of the Universe. Finally, we are trying to look closely at the great good news and the remedy for death brought by the religion through prophets and we are looking for the answer to this question: “What are the characteristics of true faith that will enable us to earn the eternal life?” We can regard this first part as the understanding of how great and precious a treasure is. The second part of the book is entitled as ” Proving the Existence of the Treasure of Faith with Evidences”. In this section, six pillars of faith are proved with detailed evidences. In other words, in the second section, the existence of the treasure sought to be achieved, whose value is understood/appreciated in the first section, is proved; its place is discovered, and this great and magnificent treasure is acquired. Primarily understanding that faith is such a great blessing and a treasure with a great value would determine the importance that we would give to that treasure and its evidences. Nevertheless, you will also observe that in the first part, a serious effort has also been made to search for the truth and evidences. Once you complete the book, you will have completed an important reading that could be considered as a brief summary of the Risale-i Nur collection and taken a serious step in studying the high knowledge of faith that is taught by these works. In “The Journeys of Discovery Risale-i Nur Training Program”, you are invited for an adventure of looking for and finding out the truth. We have a very strong reason to begin this journey: to witness the magnificent details of the divine technology and uniqueness of the artful creation and hence, to take a big step on the way of achieving the true faith that was demanded from us by Allah. We would like you to accompany us in this imaginary and mental journey of discovery. There is only one fixed price for a ticket of the Journey: A strong sense of wonder in the search for truth.

Joining Children on the Spiritual Journey by Catherine Stonehouse Book Summary:

Understanding how a child's faith forms is crucial to knowing how adults can most significantly enhance the child's spiritual development. This book provides parents, teachers, and Christian education leaders with valuable insights into spiritual formation during childhood. With a biblical perspective as a starting point and a recognition of the crucial role of both the family and the faith community, Stonehouse reviews important contributions from noted child development experts Erik Erikson, Jean Piaget, Lawrence Kohlberg, and James Fowler. This overview gives insight into the processes of psychosocial, cognitive, and moral development in children and adolescents. Stonehouse concludes with solid guidelines for designing children's ministries. By carefully "setting the stage" through liturgy, sacred stories, and parables, Christian educators can help children meet with God. Quiet times of "godly play," carefully adapted to the age level of the child, enable adults to join with children on the journey toward deeper intimacy with God.

Abraham by Charles R. Swindoll Book Summary:

When we rewind history back to Abraham’s era, we encounter people who concocted false superstitions to explain the unexplainable. Powerful kings claimed to be gods, building massive pyramids to achieve immortality. Out of this mass of misunderstandings, one man emerged. The man we know today as Abraham not only claimed that one true Creator existed but also staked his entire life on this belief. Why, thousands of years later, are we still discussing the faith of this desert nomad? One of America’s most popular Bible teachers Pastor Chuck Swindoll answers that question and many more in this compelling and insightful biography that will inspire your own faith.

The Impact of Church Consultancy by Ian G. Duncum Book Summary:

This book follows the journey of ten churches who underwent church consultancies, and explores in depth both the consultancy and its outcomes. Pre-consultancy and post-consultancy "snapshots," four to five years apart, of vitality indicators and attendance figures (using National Church Life Survey and other data) are used to compare these with churches that have not undertaken church consultancies. Theologies of church consultancy, church health, and church growth are also developed and examined, intersecting with a wide body of literature, including contemporary ecclesiologies. Consultancy outcomes are examined in detail. This includes interviews with pastors of some of those churches, reflecting on their perceptions of whether and how the church consultancy impacted the health and growth of their church. Conclusions are drawn about the efficacy of church consultancy in influencing the health and growth of churches, as well as contexts for the best use of church consultancy. This is a significant book for denominational leaders, theological lecturers, pastors, and church leaders as they encounter lack of health in churches and seek ways forward for greater health and impact in their local communities.

The Social Contexts of Disability Ministry by Albert A. Herzog Jr. Book Summary:

This book provides pastors, seminarians, and interested laity with the background necessary to understand the need for disability ministry and the contexts out of which the church's ministry among people with disabilities must emerge. This is true not only for descriptions of ministries over the past sixty years, but also the challenges disability poses for biblical studies, church history, Christian theology, and ethics. Insights are gained not only from mainstream secular and religious sources but from evangelical and other conservative materials. The blending of items from different religious resources reveals just how ubiquitous disability is and the need for disability ministry--now and for many years into the future. The book's format is such that either it can serve as a text for courses on disability ministry, or individual chapters can be employed in various courses on selected topics in biblical studies, history, theology, and ethics. Pastors and lay leaders will enjoy the depth of coverage for each topic. This is a book about a serious subject, for serious readers. Its materials are designed to inform, stimulate, and promote disability ministry as a topic worthy of serious study.

Art and Faith by Makoto Fujimura Book Summary:

From a world-renowned painter, an exploration of creativity’s quintessential—and often overlooked—role in the spiritual life “Makoto Fujimura’s art and writings have been a true inspiration to me. In this luminous book, he addresses the question of art and faith and their reconciliation with a quiet and moving eloquence.”—Martin Scorsese “[An] elegant treatise . . . Fujimura’s sensitive, evocative theology will appeal to believers interested in the role religion can play in the creation of art.”—Publishers Weekly Conceived over thirty years of painting and creating in his studio, this book is Makoto Fujimura’s broad and deep exploration of creativity and the spiritual aspects of “making.” What he does in the studio is theological work as much as it is aesthetic work. In between pouring precious, pulverized minerals onto handmade paper to create the prismatic, refractive surfaces of his art, he comes into the quiet space in the studio, in a discipline of awareness, waiting, prayer, and praise. Ranging from the Bible to T. S. Eliot, and from Mark Rothko to Japanese Kintsugi technique, he shows how unless we are making something, we cannot know the depth of God’s being and God’s grace permeating our lives. This poignant and beautiful book offers the perspective of, in Christian Wiman’s words, “an accidental theologian,” one who comes to spiritual questions always through the prism of art.

One White Face by Hilary Corna Book Summary:

Suitcase? Check. Job? Nope. One way ticket to Singapore? Check! As the first in her family to graduate from college, Hilary Corna knew exactly what she was supposed to do with her business degree upon graduation: find a decent job, move to a big city, and settle down with the man she loved. But Hilary was not a typical twenty-two-year-old. Against everyone’s advice, including her single mom, she purchased a one-way ticket to Singapore in hopes of starting her career in Asia. Hilary left home with just one suitcase, a love for Asian culture, and the determination to succeed. What could have ended in failure turned into the greatest adventure of her life when she secured a position working with Toyota Motor Asia Pacific. As the only Caucasian in the Singapore office, one Toyota boss singled her out as the “one white face,” setting the tone for the experience she would undergo. Along with her first job came new dares: thrills of traveling to exotic destinations, the pain of living twelve time zones away from community, family, and friends back home, and the birth of new friendships across cultures. Over the next three years, Hilary implemented the famous Toyota philosophy of Kaizen, a Japanese business management style of continuous improvement, to dealerships she managed across fourteen Asian countries. She blossomed under the guidance and eastern philosophies of Japanese big bosses, who developed from mentors and friends into father figures that Hilary had never had before. Hilary invites you along on her journey of becoming a global citizen—a journey where she discovers the beauty of different cultures as a way to explore her own identity not as “one white face,” but as a global citizen. To help along your journey, Hilary includes an online self-reflection guide and access to the #DareYourself community. ​If you are being held back by your job, relationships, or even your parents’ opinions, you will be inspired with boldness and dared with courage to cultivate your own self-discovery, global life experiences, and continuous self-improvement. What could have ended in failure turns into the greatest adventure of her life, complete with the challenges of working as the “one white face” of Toyota Motor Asia Pacific. Along with her new career came the thrills of traveling to exotic destinations, the pain of living twelve time zones away from loved ones, and the birth of new friendships across cultures. Over the next three years, Hilary studies Kaizen, a Japanese business method and management style for problem solving, and applies it during her work with dealerships in the Philippines and India. She blossoms under the guidance of Japanese big bosses who develop from mentors into friends and father figures. With a conversational tone and brutal honesty, Hilary invites readers along on her journey of becoming a global citizen—a journey where she discovers the beauty of life and explores her own identity not as one white face, but as a member of a global humanity. Those stuck in their own dead-end jobs, relationships, or other situations will be inspired by her journey to take action and change for the better.

Journeys of Faith by , Book Summary:

It is reported that on average Americans change their religious affiliation at least once during their lives. Today, a number of evangelical Christians are converting to Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Anglicanism. As such, there is great need for a resource that cogently presents an evangelical response to these competing faith traditions. Evangelical Christians, however, need not only theological answers, but a deeper understanding of the obvious attraction of these varying religious expressions. JoThis ebook download of Journeys of Faith examines the theological migrations among Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Anglicans, and Evangelicals, each of which is viewed from various angles. Three prominent evangelical converts to Eastern Orthodoxy, Catholicism, and Anglicanism describe their new faith traditions and their spiritual journeys into them. In response, chapters by recognized evangelical scholars offer civil critiques. The book also contains a chapter by a convert to Evangelicalism, followed by an appraisal of the evangelical faith by a Catholic scholar. Each contributor arguing for their new faith tradition will be allowed a brief rejoinder to those writing on the opposing side. There are basically two types of chapters in this book: First, chapters that explain and advocate theological migration from one expression of Christianity to another (e.g., an Evangelical who has converted to Catholicism and makes a case for others to do the same). These chapters focus on such issues as Why did you leave your prior theological tradition? and What is it about your new tradition that makes you feel it better represents Scripture and church history. Second, there are response chapters arguing for the greater theological fidelity of a certain expression of Christianity in light of persons leaving those traditions (e.g., Evangelicals arguing that conversions to Greek Orthodoxy or Catholicism are not moves to greater faithfulness). These chapters will provide a critique of the differing Christian traditions under discussion and address such issues as Why have you remained within your current Christian tradition? and Why beneficial lessons can be learned from the tradition you are critiquing? In all, this book will provide readers with first-hand accounts of why certain individuals have changed their religious affiliation or have remain true to the one they have always known. Pastors, counselors and general readers will gain a wealth of insight into current faith migration with the Church today.
