Description : The Prolonged Struggle of Supernatural Forces for Creation’s Loyalty as Revealed In— Vol. III.—The Life and Ministry of Jesus Christ — The Desire of Ages. Heritage Edition—Over 300 Century-Old Illustrations, 724 pages. This third volume—The Desire of Ages—covers the life and ministry of Jesus Christ as recorded in the four gospels. This is the heart-molding story of Jesus of Nazareth, the promised Seed of the Woman which was to conquer and eventually destroy the adversary of mankind—the serpent, the devil. This is the story of the central theme of all Scripture, the account of the life and ministry of the long-looked-for, and yet misunderstood and rejected by most, Messiah, Emmanuel—God with us.

Take time to meditate upon the life of He whom accepted into one’s life, transforms the mind and heart and promises to each repentant son and daughter of Adam time without end—eternal dwelling with Him who during His three-and-one-half years of ministry demonstrated His ability to deliver us from sin, and to wipe away all tears from our eyes.

Description : If we all want love, why is there so much conflict in our most cherished relationships? To answer this question, argues the prominent psychologist David M. Buss, we must look into our evolutionary past. Based on the most massive study of human mating ever undertaken, encompassing more than 10,000 people of all ages from thirty-seven cultures worldwide, The Evolution of Desire is the first book to present a unified theory of human mating behavior. In this fully revised and updated edition of The Evolution of Desire, Buss has incorporated the explosion of research in the field of human mating since its original 1994 publication, from startling discoveries about the evolutionary advantages of infidelity and physical attractiveness to new findings regarding sexual orientation, the emotion of sexual disgust, and incest avoidance adaptations.

Description : The Prolonged Struggle of Supernatural Forces for Creation’s Loyalty as Revealed In— Vol. IV.—The Times and Ministry of the Early Christians —The Acts of the Apostles. Heritage Edition—Over 100 Century-Old Illustrations, 385 pages. This fourth volume—The Acts of the Apostles—covers the experience of the early Christian Church. While the Bible’s book of Acts covers a period of only a little more than three decades, it is filled with important lessons for the church in every age. God clearly indicates that the Christian today shall experience the presence of the same Spirit who came with power at Pentecost and fanned the gospel message into a flame. The acts of the Holy Spirit through Peter and Paul, John and James, and others can be repeated in the modern disciple. The abruptness with which the book of Acts closes is not accidental; it deliberately suggests that the thrilling narrative is unfinished, that the acts of God through the Spirit are to have their sequel throughout the Christian dispensation—each successive generation adding a chapter full of beauty and power to the one that preceded it.

Description : The first full-length treatment of Ibn Gabirol's philosophy in English, this study completely reinvents the medieval author of the Fountain of Life or Fons Vitae (known to many in the history of philosophy by his Latinized name, Avicebron). Developing Ibn Gabirol's vision in terms of a "Theology of Desire," the book rescues the voice of the eleventh-century Jewish poet-philosopher from centuries of misreadings as it sets out to examine the role of love, desire, and ethical self-transformation in medieval Jewish Neoplatonism.

Description : “The church may appear as about to fall, but it does not fall. It remains, while the sinners in Zion will be sifted out—the chaff separated from the precious wheat. This is a terrible ordeal, but nevertheless must take place. . . . The remnant that purify their souls by obeying the truth gather strength from the trying process, exhibiting the beauty of holiness amid the surrounding apostasy” (Ellen G. White Letter 55, Dec. 8, 1886, written from Basel, Switzerland to G. I. Butler and S. N. Haskell). Dear reader, does the prophetic guidance just quoted strike you as being just a tad scary? If you have been paying close attention lately, a movement has been steadily, but stealthily, building over the past several years and is now dangerously close to reaching groundswell proportions in the North American Division and beyond. This movement would accomplish the objective of ordaining women as full-fledged ministers of the Gospel. Are you concerned? Is there anything you could or should do about it? Before you answer, please take the time to read through this little book.
