Description : What can we really know for sure about the past? Can anything be trusted as reliable historical fact? What can we really know for sure about the past? Can anything from ancient history be regarded as 'fact'? In particular, how seriously can we take the historical sources for the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth? Did he really even live in first-century Galilee and Judaea, or is he a figure of legend? In this timely book, historian Dr John Dickson unpacks how the field of history works, giving readers the tools to evaluate for themselves what we can confidently say about figures like the Emperor Tiberius, Alexander the Great, Pontius Pilate, and, of course, Jesus of Nazareth. He presents the evidence, methods, and conclusions of mainstream scholars-both Christian and not-and asks some pertinent contemporary questions, without offering any pushy answers: If Jesus really did exist, what are we to make of his own claims and those of his followers, and what would any of it mean for us today?

Description : Pray One for Another is a book written to bring awareness of the urgency and importance of prayer in the lives of all people. According to biblical teachings, we are required to pray for each other; as well as those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. The book also addresses the many hindrances to prayer and what we need to do in order to avoid them. For example, unforgiveness can hinder the answers to your prayers, and furthermore, short circuit your communication with God. Jesus said in Matthew 5:23-24, Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Unforgiveness can also prevent the Father from forgiving you. Again Jesus said, in Mark 11:25-26, And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 26But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. It exposes the intimacy of prayer and how it relates to the person of Jesus Christ and the authority that is associated with his name. Included in this book are a series of prayers that can help the Christian to develop a vibrant prayer life. There are notations and prayers on Thanksgiving, Submission, Salvation, Wisdom, Overcoming fear, Trials and Temptations, Troubled past and more. In all of these, Jesus Christ remains the focus of attention because we can do nothing without him. To him, we give all the praise and all the glory. * * * * * Customers from canada who is interested in purchasing the book can contact the author on his e-mail address to minimize shipping.
