Description : In the history of western literature there has never been a factual description of God. We often hear that "no one has seen God and lived to tell about it." However, if the Supreme Truth wishes to reveal Himself to whomever and whenever He so chooses, then the Infinite can be known to the infinitesimal. This extraordinary event is now being shared by a physician-scientist who had this most extraordinary experience in 1971 at the age of 20. His material qualifications hopefully will convince readers that the descriptions of this revelation are neither capricious nor imaginary. Those who are naturally disposed to seek the deeper Truth are the primary audience for these expressions of supreme good fortune and hope. But, any religiously or spiritually inclined individual will be highly benefited. The style of writing is that of a seeker, intended for serious seekers. Scientists will easily be carried along through the process of discrimination between matter and spirit. The pearls of Eastern wisdom, and quotes from the Vedas, especially the Bhagavad Gita, the Bible, and the Koran, will help readers understand that the path to enlightenment is being drawn by well-established spiritual traditions. However, the revelation of God Himself in His Personal and Impersonal aspects will be described for the readers, as it was shown to this seeker. The experiment was done, and fortunately, the result was realized by the Grace of God Himself. Although its verification is clear and confirmed in the great religious traditions, this is the factual description of one who has seen God and lived to tell about it. It is the hope that these descriptions will help humanity to appreciate that indeed God is not dead. It is we who remain imprisoned due to our ignorance, as it were, in vehicles of mostly water and other elements. The person is the spiritual being within this vehicle and it is offered that even agnostics and some atheists will read these descriptions and be rejuvenated in their sojourns toward our spiritual Home. Thoughtful people should read this book and know that there is a genuine optimism within God's creation. Once we understand this, then our lives take on a deep intrinsic eternal meaning. You too may say, as I did, that "God really is a Person!"
Description : Move over, Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens—a highly regarded nuclear physicist enters the debate about the existence of God—and comes down on the side of the angels. Goswami’s hypothesis is that quantum physics holds the key to all the unsolved mysteries of biology—the nature and origin of life, fossil gaps of evolution, why evolution proceeds from simple to complex, and why biological beings have feeling and consciousness. In God Is Not Dead, Goswami moves beyond theory and shows how a God-based science puts ethics and values where it belongs: at the center of our lives and societies. He provides a scientific model that steers between scientific materialism and religious fundamentalism; a model that has implications for how we live both individually and collectively. God Is Not Dead is a fascinating tour of quantum physics, consciousness, and the existence and experience of God.

Description : Throughout history, Christianity has come under fire for holding to a standard the culture abandons. Today’s headlines increasingly reflect the pressure that comes as warning shots across the bow before the full-on attack of persecution begins.

Now in God’s Not Dead 2 the stakes are much higher than a college course as high school history teacher Grace Wesley becomes the pawn in an epic court case that has the potential to cripple free speech rights for Christians. An innocent question regarding Jesus from 16-year-old student Brooke Thawley ignites a firestorm on faith from Grace’s accurate answer. The God’s Not Dead 2 40-Day Devotional book digs deeper into the cultural questions of civil disobedience and religious freedom, coupled with the sovereignty of God and the Biblical heroes who have traveled this road before us. This 40-day journey will inspire, motivate, and challenge you to not only grow closer to God, but also deepen your roots to stand strong in the storms that life will surely bring. And once again, we shall see—God is not dead—He’s surely alive!

Description : A scholar and a thinker, Dr. Moshe Finkelman emerges as an expert on Jewish faith in his book God Is Not Dead: Man's Pursuit of Faith in Judaism. For the first time since the eighteenth-century's The Path of the Upright of Ramhal, there is a book that describes a system of growth in faith, from the initial level to the ultimate level of knowledge of God, leading to closeness to God. Dr. Finkelman gradually and convincingly takes the reader through steps of growth in faith, leaving no argument unsettled and no subject unexplained. God Is Not Dead: Man's Pursuit of Faith in Judaism conveys messages that resonate with the worldview of a contemporary believer. Finkelman's system of growth in faith gives anyone the ability to create a bond with God. It offers Jews of every level of commitment a clear and accessible path to deepen his or her faith, and to do so by mastering it as the art form that it truly is. Presented as an easy-to-grasp actionable process, this system of growth in faith was inspired by the author's personal religious evolution. He draws mainly from religious and philosophical sources of Judaism, including the teachings of the twelfth-century Jewish philosopher Maimonides, the principles of the eighteenth-century scholar Ramhal, and the beliefs of Yeshayahu Leibowitz, the twentieth-century Israeli intellectual, a leading authority on Jewish faith. The work is further enlivened with anecdotes about both historic figures and everyday people alike. Providing a compelling, achievable blueprint for growth in faith, this fascinating work serves as a timely, essential contribution to contemporary Judaism.
