Release Date: 2011-11
Genre: Religion

Chronicling her own transformation from a "lukewarm" Catholic to a person passionate about her faith and the Church through Medjugorje, Look at the SON: The Fruit of Medjugorje focuses on the primary reason for the Virgin Mary's apparitions in Medjugorje - that of leading souls to her Son, Jesus Christ. Reaching out to a diverse Christian audience through her use of biblical passages, examples, factual data and stories of miracles - particularly those associated with the Eucharist - the author seeks to unite us in our unified bond as believers in Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Bible. The Virgin Mary's call is universal and we all have a part to play in this mission. The Virgin states, "Little children, do not forget that you are all important in this great plan which God leads through Medjugorje. God desires to convert the entire world and to call it to salvation and to the way towards Himself, who is the beginning and the end of every being." Awakening, inspiring, and having the ability to profoundly transform the lives of readers, Look at the SON leads one on a journey to deeper faith in Our Lord - to greater holiness - and to the awareness of Holy Mother Mary's great love and desire for us to have an even deeper relationship with her Son. Kimberly Bruce is a wife, mother, author, and speaker who has been an avid student of the Virgin Mary's apparitions in Medjugorje for more than 20 years. Kim has a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communication. She is a Life Teen catechist, a Women of Grace facilitator, a former RCIA Instructor, and prayer group leader.

Author: Paul Henry
Publisher: Tate Publishing
ISBN: 9781617396458
Release Date: 2011-04
Genre: Religion

The power of God's grace is greater than any power of the will a person can generate on his own. For anyone who would turn from the tragedy of a wrong and dying life and a meaningless existence, there is only one answer—do whatever is necessary to receive God's grace. The Light of the Son reveals the truth behind the lie upon which the present world was founded: Man has no personal responsibility to God. Under the sway of this great lie, the human race is constantly diverted from the Light of Life, and instead lives in a shadow land of doubt and vulnerability. The Light of Life—the supreme gift of God to mankind—doesn't come from some cosmic flashlight, but from the power of God's Word. Join author Paul Henry as he shares the mysteries of the Light of God, and discover for yourself the gospel buried beneath the weight of religious teachings that have been popularized by churches for centuries. The Light of the Son is the result of a lifetime spent separating mere religion from the Light that does not fail. Author Paul Henry graduated cum laude from a California college with a degree in Theology. After less than two years in the ministry, he returned his license and set out to first become a Christian, and secondly a minister.

My full testimony, biography, and the lessons God had taught me throughout those years are written in the book "The Witness to the Coming of Jesus Christ," published in 1999. The LORD God spoke to me a second time in a dream and said, "TELL MY COVENANT PEOPLE THEY WILL NOT BE HARMED!" The third time, the Messiah had come.

The Son of Man Debate

Author: Delbert Burkett
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 1139429809
Release Date: 2000-01-13
Genre: Religion

The expression 'Son of Man', used in the Gospels almost exclusively by Jesus, has been the object of intensive study since the Protestant Reformation, yet scholars have come to no agreement on its origin or meaning. Research in this area has been described as 'a veritable mine field' and 'a can of worms'. Because of the scope and complexity of the literature, no comprehensive survey of the subject has been written in the twentieth century. Delbert Burkett's book fills this need. It provides a comprehensive historical overview of the debate from the patristic period to 1996, and gives an evaluation of that research and a summation of the present state of the question. Burkett concludes that despite nineteen centuries of 'Son of Man' study there is no consensus concerning the meaning or origin of the expression; the debate is therefore a prime example of the limits of New Testament scholarship.
