In Thinking and Destiny, something new, although older than time, is now made known to the world--about Consciousness. The information is largely about the makeup of the human, where man comes from, what becomes of him; it explains what thinking is; it tells how a thought is created, and how thoughts are exteriorized into acts, objects and events, and how they make his destiny. Destiny is thus shown to be self-determined by thinking; and the process of re-existence and the after-death states are told in detail. A single reading of any one chapter of Thinking and Destiny brings rich rewards in new understanding of life`s puzzling mysteries. To read the entire book is to come nearer to knowledge of one`s destiny and how to shape it than is possible through study of anything previously written in the English language. Both the casually curious glancer at books and the most avid seeker for knowledge will be intrigued by the index, which lists more than 400 subjects in Thinking and Destiny, and by the fifteen chapter headings in the Table of Contents, which identify the 156 sections. The Foreword contains the only pages in which Mr. Percival uses the first personal pronoun. Here he relates some of the amazing experiences through which he was able to grasp the knowledge he transmits, and to acquire the ability to do so.

Jim Shannon sees the list of assassination targets and flies to London to enlist the help of his twin brother, Tim.

Here is everything you ever wanted to know about community service. Ronald W. Poplau explores the major shortcomings of today's education and introduces community service as a viable means to correct them. The book is based on 11 years of a program that the State of Kansas enacted into law. The U.S. State Department later sent Poplau to Russia to share this program with Russian schools, and at any one time, one-fourth of the author's school, Shawnee Mission Northwest High School, is enrolled in the program. There is a waiting list to get in the class, and this book can show you how to create the same phenomenon in your school. This book: examines how community service affects a student's person, explores why community service is needed now in all of our schools, documents with student testimonials how service not only changes them but also the community. Poplau contends that while technology is isolating all of us, and especially young students, it cannot be forgotten that human beings were meant to bond with one another. Students need to become involved with their fellow man, and with this in mind, the mission statement and title of the book is a simple one: The Doer of Good Becomes Good. For teachers and student activity directors.
We sit in the pews. We sing the songs. We recite Scripture Scripture we know by heart. And yet buried in the midst of this routine are commands and requests straight from the Most High that go ignored. We've become so reliant on God fulfilling His end of the bargain that we fail to follow through with ours. We've Become Hearers. In 31 days, Yolanda Shanks' devotional study, Not Just a Hearer but a Doer, will help you find calls to action within Scripture... and then act upon them. Starting with small things, like seeing that the Lord is good and working your way up to bigger actions, such as being a bold witness for Christ, you'll soon have the tools, desire and confidence to put Scripture into practice. Just as God intended. God wants doers.
