'It was with awe That I beheld Fresh leaves, green leaves, Bright in the sun' When the Japanese haiku master Basho composed The Narrow Road to the Deep North, he was an ardent student of Zen Buddhism, setting off on a series of travels designed to strip away the trappings of the material world and bring spiritual enlightenment. He writes of the seasons changing, the smell of the rain, the brightness of the moon and the beauty of the waterfall, through which he sensed the mysteries of the universe. These writings not only chronicle Basho's travels, but they also capture his vision of eternity in the transient world around him. Translated with an Introduction by Nobuyuki Yuasa

What kind of influence do you have on people today? Are you staying on the path God's ordered for you yet? Sometimes it's too easy to make decisions you think will be right only to discover later how wrong you were. And every man did that which was right in his own eyes from Judges 21:25 speaks to any who've done their own thing, in spite of what God may have guided through the counsel of His Word. Has that ever been you? We're responsible for the actions we take, for the choices we make each day. We can sadly lose our core vision when we open ourselves up to passageways that lead us astray from our focus. I See God on the Narrow Road gives the reader an opportunity to draw attention to the character of her or his life - to discover through personal choices and experiences how a single decision can become a positive or negative influence on not just one but many. The standards we set for ourselves make a difference. Do you know what kind of persuasion you have on people today who are on the same narrow path you are on?

Shortly after his conversion, Jeff finds himself in jail for a crime he did not commit. Find out how Lisa helps unravel the mystery that will allow God's ultimate good to triumph. I was born in Waukegan, Illinois, in 1962. I lived in a rural section in the McHenry, Illinois area until 1979, when my family moved to Dunedin, Florida. There I met my husband and was married in August of 1981. I lived in Florida for almost ten years until my husband and I relocated our family to Greer, SC, in 1988. This has been our home for the past 21 years. We have four children and four grandchildren. My life's goal is to glorify God and teach His Word to the lost until Christ returns or until my time on this earth has ended.

God’s plan was to send Jesus, “the seed of the woman” promised in Genesis, to this earth in order to bruise the head of the Serpent. And at the fullness of time, Jesus Christ willingly gave up His unique position in heaven to come to earth to die for sinners too powerless to save ourselves. He took slaps, insults, spits and beatings and all indignities from sinners in order to accomplish this great salvation for us. He was nailed to the cross, died, was buried and rose from the dead on the third day. And before He gave up His last breath, He declared: “It is finished!” Those three words released all human beings who will accept His sacrifice of love, from bondage to Satan, forever. The curtain in the temple at Jerusalem that separated the holy place from the holy of holies rent in two from top to bottom after His death. This symbolized how His death opened for us direct access to God, the Father. No longer do we need a High Priest to go into the holy of holies **to offer the blood of bulls and goats that can only cover sins for a year. Jesus’ blood shed once and for all has obliterated our sins forever. He is now our Great High Priest in heaven where He offered His blood at God’s mercy seat. The Father was pleased with His perfect work for us and accepted His sacrifice. No wonder John the Baptist introduced the Lord as: “Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.” If you have believed in Christ’s work at Calvary and received Him into your life, confess Him with your mouth, tell people about how your sins are forgiven and who you have become in Christ. Faith in God and in the work of His Son for you is what determines your salvation.

Winner of the Man Booker Prize 2014. A novel of the cruelty of war, tenuousness of life and the impossibility of love. August, 1943. In the despair of a Japanese POW camp on the Thai-Burma death railway, Australian surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his love affair with his uncle's young wife two years earlier. Struggling to save the men under his command from starvation, from cholera, from beatings, he receives a letter that will change his life forever. This savagely beautiful novel is a story about the many forms of love and death, of war and truth, as one man comes of age, prospers, only to discover all that he has lost. 'The Narrow Road to the Deep North is a big, magnificent novel of passion and horror and tragic irony. Its scope, its themes and its people all seem to grow richer and deeper in significance with the progress of the story, as it moves to its extraordinary resolution. It's by far the best new novel I've read in ages.' - Patrick McGrath 'Beyond comparison . . . an immense achievement . . . Wilfred Owen wrote of his Great War verse: "My subject is war, and the pity of war. The poetry is in the pity." Flanagan's triumph is to find poetry without any pity at all.' - Geordie Williamson, The Australian 'A story of war and star-crossed lovers, the novel is also a profound meditation on life and time, memory and forgetting . . . a magnificent achievement.' - Katharine England, Adelaide Advertiser 'A masterpiece . . . The Narrow Road is an extraordinary piece of writing and a high point in an already distinguished career.' - Michael Williams, The Guardian

Why not go with the flow? Why not take the easy road? Why not keep on one side to be safe? In The Narrow Road, the author challenges readers to choose the path he describes as a mountain ridge with ravines on both sides. The way is narrow, difficult and perilous, but it leads to life. “In today’s confusing world, we find ourselves torn in different directions: hearing different teachings on all sides and uncertain which to follow; aware of the dangers of extremes but unsure what the middle course might look like. In The Narrow Road, David Wong offers sensible and biblically-based guidance, drawing on years of pastoral experience and teaching. There are no quick fixes or ‘magic bullets’ here, but much truth to reflect on.” — Dr Philip Satterthwaite Principal, Biblical Graduate School of Theology (BGST)

An in depth look at Christianity based off of true biblical doctrine pertaining to the New Testament, the walk of Jesus Christ, and the first disciples. With so many different doctrines and many walks in the world today, it is hard to establish those who are true followers of Jesus Christ and those who are following a mere religion or man, unless we are studying the Word of God in its entirety. The Narrow Road takes you through a deep study of the Word of God and examines His Words, by the various walks of life and that of Jesus Christ. In looking into the walk of Jesus and those first disciples, it was evident to see the distinction of those true sheep and those whose lifestyles were not the same, as is also witnessed today among the many churches. Many, we are told, will stand before the Father one day as He declares He never knew them and only few will see heaven. Bringing to light the many deceptions of this world and the many false prophets among us, it is imperative for the believer to separate from this world and rise up to be His true church.

According to the Bible, Christians and non-Christians travel different roads and serve different masters. Our society tells us that's not so. It tells us we should pursue the same economic goals that unbelievers pursue. According to the prevailing sentiment, faith and non-faith don't differentiate us as much as whether we are liberal or conservative, democrat or republican or espouse capitalism or socialism. Furthermore, society pressures us to choose sides. The Narrow Road: Loving God in a World Devoted to Money takes a critical look at our economy and shows that the Bible promotes neither socialism nor capitalism. Instead, in God's economy, Christians are expected to steward their resources according to biblical principles so that the kingdom of God is advanced. In God's economy, we lay up treasure in heaven rather than treasure on earth as we follow Jesus on the narrow road.
