Description : The Shining Ones are known throughout the Cosmos as Master Geneticists - they carry the higher octave harmonics of humanity's attunement to a 5D World. Through the New Human Templates of Love, Harmony, Joy, Unity, Co-Creation, Abundance and Sovereignty, these benevolent, wise and unconditional luminous ones are here to mirror the remembrance now activating in the human DNA. This book follows the introduction of The New Human Paradigm in 2008 via author DeAnne Hampton's previous work, The New Human, Understanding Our Humanity, Embracing Our Divinity. The Shining Ones, Ambassadors of a New Age of Light follows the arc of humanity's evolutionary expansion from 2006 through the 12/21/12 gateway and marks the planetary return of this Advanced Light Race to the human species. This manuscript is light-encoded as an attunement toward the highest potentials of human consciousness now awakening to a New Earth.
Description : We often imagine Jesus as the ultimate peacemaker, as one who saw all sides and kindly overlooked differences of belief or practice. The Gospels say this was not so. Jesus drew sharp lines. He disagreed with many. He rejected being broadminded on a variety of topics. He engaged in vigorous debate, especially with several different groups of religious leaders. What conflicts did he have? He argued that we would experience a supernatural afterlife, that our natural existence is not all God has planned. He disagreed that human tradition should not supersede Scripture, our foundational authority. He clashed on whether the Bible was not an end in itself, contending that its purpose pointed beyond itself. He sharply articulated that God accept us by virtue of what we receive from him, not by what we do for him. These and other controversies clarify the core distinctives of the Christian faith which, John Stott boldly asserts, are nothing less than the distinctives of the evangelical faith. This text of Stott's classic, Christ the Controversialist, now edited by David Stone for the twenty-first century, was controversial when it was first published. It is no less controversial today.
Description : The hidden seeds of the Christian renewal in China today include the outstanding Chinese Christians in Salt and Light 2, a dozen new life stories with lively anecdotes and photographs. These reformers made lasting contributions that shaped modern China. Working out of the limelight in their professions, they had quiet but powerful influence on early twentieth-century civil society. Motivated by their faith, they modeled essential virtues. This series helps recover a lost Christian heritage linked closely to a legacy of East-West cooperation in an earlier global era.
Description : The Age of Innocence marks the pinnacle of Edith Wharton’s career as one of the finest American novelists of her era. The narrative follows Newland Archer, of upper-crust 1870s New York, whose passion for the mysterious Countess Ellen Olenska leads him to question the very foundations of his way of life. Written in the aftermath of World War I, the novel explores the psychological and cultural paradoxes of desire in a world undergoing unprecedented transformations. This edition includes a critical introduction and a range of appendices that contextualize the novel in terms of its modernist themes and tensions.
