Download and read online Man Myth Messiah in PDF and EPUB Did Jesus Really Exist? The search for the historical Jesus continues to be headline news. Any speculative theory seems to get instant attention as the debate rages about His real identity and the claims made in His name. Did Jesus really exist? Is there real historical evidence that demonstrates that He lived and actually said and did the things the Gospels record? Is there any validity to the speculative claims that the Jesus story was a myth, borrowed from a variety of pagan cultures of the ancient world? In this follow-up to the book God’s Not Dead (that inspired the movie), Man, Myth, Messiah looks at the evidence for the historical Jesus and exposes the notions of skeptics that Jesus was a contrived figure of ancient mythology. It also looks at the reliability of the Gospel records as well as the evidence for the resurrection that validates His identity as the promised Messiah. Man, Myth, Messiah will be released concurrent to the God’s Not Dead movie sequel, which will cover the same theme.

Download and read online Defying Normal in PDF and EPUB FIND A HILL WORTH DYING ON How many of us lead lives of quiet desperation -- and don't even know it? Caught between the shifting moral landscape of our culture and a burning desire to make our lives count, too often we settle for less. God has so much more for us than conformity to the status quo -- if we will only take the necessary leap of faith. In Defying Normal, pastor Skip Heitzig offers such a challenge and provides practical, biblical advice for pursuing a life of faith and transformation in uncertain times. Drawing on the life of Daniel -- a nonconformist agent of God in a time and culture in desperate need of truth and light -- Defying Normal dares you to embrace eight God-centered traits that will help you soar above the norm and live your faith in a bold and winning way. You don't have to blend in or give in to find and fulfill your purpose and impact your world. In fact, it can happen only when you defy what is popular and rise above the crowd to to a new normal. My friend pastor Skip Heitzig has penned a book for our times. As he always does from Scripture, Skip teaches the importance of bowing before the King of Heaven. In doing so, we are strengthened to live boldly while standing in the midst of an unbelieving world. Brace yourself when you read Defying Normal, because you will find yourself Soaring above the Status Quo! -- Franklin Graham, President and CEO, Samaritan's Purse, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Fitting in is easy in our everything-goes culture, but it takes a certain kind of bravery to stand against the status quo and be different. In Defying Normal, Skip gives us the courage to look normal in the face and defy it. This is my kind of book. -- Kristen Welch, author of the blog We are THAT family and founder of Mercy House In his new book my friend and godfather pastor Skip Heitzig will teach you how to live the wild, free life 30,000 feet above the status quo that you were born to live. Normal is overrated, and the adventure that is your calling is waiting -- there's not a moment to lose! -- Levi Lusko, Pastor, Fresh Life Church, Montana, author of Through the Eyes of a Lion

Download and read online Too Dumb to Fail in PDF and EPUB From a leading voice among young conservatives, an impassioned argument that to stay relevant the Republican Party must look beyond short-term electoral gains and re-commit to historic conservative values. In 1963 Richard Hofstadter published his landmark book Anti-Intellectualism in American Life. Today, Matt Lewis argues, America's inclination toward simplicity and stupidity is stronger than ever, and its greatest victim is the Republican Party. Lewis, a respected conservative columnist and frequent guest on MSNBC's Morning Joe, eviscerates the phenomenon of candidates with a "no experience required" mentality and tea party "patriots" who possess bluster but few core beliefs. Lewis traces the conservative movement's roots, from Edmund Burke to William F. Buckley, and from Goldwater's loss to Reagan's landslide victory. He highlights visionary thinkers who understood nuance and deep ideology and changed the course of the nation. As we approach the 2016 presidential election, Lewis has an urgent message for fellow conservatives: embrace wisdom, humility, qualifications, and inclusion--or face extinction.

Download and read online Jasmine and Stars in PDF and EPUB In a direct, frank, and intimate exploration of Iranian literature and society, scholar, teacher, and poet Fatemeh Keshavarz challenges popular perceptions of Iran as a society bereft of vitality and joy. Her fresh perspective on present-day Iran provides a rare insight into this rich culture alive with artistic expression but virtually unknown to most Americans. Keshavarz introduces readers to two modern Iranian women writers whose strong and articulate voices belie the stereotypical perception of Iranian women as voiceless victims in a country of villains. She follows with a lively critique of the recent best-seller Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books, which epitomizes what Keshavarz calls the "New Orientalist narrative," a view marred by stereotype and prejudice more often tied to current geopolitical conflicts than to an understanding of Iran. Blending in firsthand glimpses of her own life--from childhood memories in 1960s Shiraz to her present life as a professor in America--Keshavarz paints a portrait of Iran depicting both cultural depth and intellectual complexity. With a scholar's expertise and a poet's hand, she helps amplify the powerful voices of contemporary Iranians and leads readers toward a deeper understanding of the country's past and present.

"...I must tell you that I am not really an old lady; just cleverly disguised as one. Art and colour keep me young, keep me sane. Working as I do as an untutored 'outsider' artist is my therapy, my medicine, my joy and my purpose in life. Colour surrounds me: I revel in it, splash it everywhere, gulp it with a spoon. I am immersed in art. I make it, collect it, it fills and defines my existence. Childish, shamanistic, wild and anarchic, it is as far outside the box as it is possible to be. Box?? There is no box! Be bold, be adventurous. Do profound things, dazzle yourself and the world. Don't wear beige: it might kill you. Contribute to society, and live large. Life is short, make every moment count. It is never too late to find your passion." -- Sue Kreitzman
