The first half of the book discusses the Attributes of God based on the Vedas the root scriptures of Hindu religion. One would learn that according to the Vedas there is only One God who is addressed as Om and also by many other names. God is Omnipresent as the Universal Spirit but has no shape or form i.e. God is not anthropomorphic. God is eternal and does not incarnate as a human being. God is Omniscient and the Source of all true knowledge. God is always Blissful and the Source of all Bliss. All individuals have the potential to directly (without intermediaries) acquire bliss and true knowledge from God through the practice of spiritual yogameditation because God exists inside everyones soul. God is Omnipotent, however, Gods omnipotence does not mean that He can do whatever He pleases. Even God follows rules of the material science He has created. God does not perform miracles such as turning a wooden staff into a serpent or vice versa. The second half of the book compares and contrasts beliefs described in the Vedas with those described in the Abrahamic (Jewish, Christian and Muslim) scriptures as well as in later Hindu scriptures such as the Puranas upon which most of the current beliefs and practices of the Hindu religion are based. The book discusses issues such as: Has God been rightly or wrongly described in different ways by Hindus, Jews, Christians and Muslims, or are there many versions of One God because God keeps changing and evolving to suit the needs of various religions? Does God incarnate as a human being as believed by many Hindus and Christians? Has God sent the last prophet as believed by many Muslims? The aim of this book is to promote understanding of One God and His attributes based upon common sense, logic and what is likely to be true.I believe a book discussing Attributes of God is a timely because the fundamentalists of all religions in the past few years are claiming religious superiority. This book discusses whether these claims have valid reasoning or are they the claims of the autocratic hierarchy of the religion. In recent years, especially in the post 9/11/2001 world, many fundamentalist Muslims have claimed Islam to be the only way and they want to convert the whole world to Islam. On the other hand many Christians, especially evangelical Christians consider Christianity to be the only way and would like to convert the entire world to Christianity. Pope Benedict XVI in 2007 stated that Catholic Church is the only true church, reinforcing his belief that Catholicism is superior to other religions. Such claims of religious superiority, along with the need to convert others to the same or similar beliefs as ones own religion does not promote religious harmony or tolerance among people of the world. This book ends with the suggestion and appeal that in this era of mass and often instant communications, God and His name should be used to unite people of different religions and not used for exploitation or to fight with each other because no organized religion has a monopoly on God or the truth.

In a world of fast-food meals, high-speed Internet and quick solutions, waiting is tough. Sometimes, if we don’t get a quick answer to our problems—wanting a child, a mate, a new job, a house–we feel stuck. Where is God? Has he forgotten us? No, says Marlinda Ireland, God has not forgotten! We may be caught in a “divine delay,” a time of waiting which holds a purpose and is an opportunity to learn enduring lessons. Learn from the biblical stories of men and women who persevered in waiting for God and discover four primary causes of delayed answers to prayer. Then, learn three secrets that help readers mature during a “heavenly holding pattern.” Ireland shows how to value a time of waiting for what is desired, and offers encouragement and confidence in God’s all-knowing love. Step-by-step, through sound biblical principles, she lifts readers out of their frustrations into a renewed passion for the future.

Many of these churches are high-profile evangelical churches with pastors who are also successful authors and speakers. The campaign continues to attract interest from more and more churches and ministries. The 2010 campaign, scheduled for June, is expected to grow by 50 percent. This compilation book features chapters by seventeen passionate church leaders, including Andy Stanley, Francis Chan, Jentezen Franklin, Perry Noble, Steven Furtick, and others.

In his most deeply personal work, religious scholar Needleman cuts a clear path through today?s clamorous debates over the existence of God, illuminating an entirely new way of approaching the question of how to understand a higher power. I n this new book, philosopher Jacob Needleman? whose voice and ideas have done so much to open the West to esoteric and Eastern religious ideas in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries?intimately considers humanity?s most vital question: What is God? Needleman begins by taking us more than a half century into the past, to his own experience as a brilliant, promising, Ivyeducated student of philosophy?atheistic, existential, and unwilling to blindly accept childish religiosity. But an unsettling meeting with the venerated Zen teacher D. T. Suzuki, combined with the sudden need to accept a dreary position teaching the philosophy of religion, forced the young academician to look more closely at the religious ideas he had once thought dead. Within traditional religious texts the scholar discovered a core of esoteric and philosophical ideas, more mature and challenging than anything he had ever associated with Judaism, Christianity, and the religions of the East. At the same time, Needleman came to realize?as he shares with the reader?that ideas and words are not enough. Ideas and words, no matter how profound, cannot prevent hatred, arrogance, and ultimate despair, and cannot prevent our individual lives from descending into violence and illusion. And with this insight, Needleman begins to open the reader to a new kind of understanding: The inner realization that in order to lead the lives we were intended for, the very nature of human experience must change, including the very structure of our perception and indeed the very structure of our minds. In What Is God?, Needleman draws us closer to the meaning and nature of this needed change?and shows how our present confusion about the purpose of religion and the concept of God reflects a widespread psychological starvation for this specific quality of thought and experience. In rich and varied detail, the book describes this inner experience?and how almost all of us, atheists and ?believers? alike, actually have been visited by it, but without understanding what it means and why the intentional cultivation of this quality of experience is necessary for the fullness of our existence.

Early in the Bible, we meet a profound and compelling character: God. But who is He? What does He have to do with the life I’m living now? Is He someone worth knowing? Justin Buzzard, pastor of Garden City Church in Silicon Valley, examines God as a character in our lives, a person we must get to know in order to understand the Bible and the world around us. Is God mad at me? Is He happy? Does He really know what He’s doing? Based off one of the sermons Justin preached at the launch of Garden City Church, this short piece, taken from his book, The Big Story, will challenge your notions of “God” and what He has to do with your life. Moody Collective Portions are short pieces of content taken from our full-length books. Our goal is to introduce our readers to a complete idea in a brief, concise, and inexpensive format. Most portions will take about 20 minutes to read.

This book will answer these questions and many more: Does God use evil spirits? Why does God not intervene in the death of innocent children? Does He Curse? Does He want your money? Did He make weird laws? Does He ever change His mind? Does He ever repent? Why is He silent? Why did He invent old age? Is He really a terrorist? Are there some things He can't do? Does God demand that you worship Him? This book is based on the word of God. Over 1200 scriptures are used to substantiate the teaching herein. These verses speak powerfully to us about the nature and character of God. He wants you to literally live by the words that come out of His mouth. He put you through hard times...., so you would learn that men and women don't live by bread only; we live by every word that comes from GOD's mouth (Deuteronomy 8:3). These words are powerful enough to give you eternal life and His Word will help you through your daily trials. Just as rain and snow descend from the skies and don't go back until they've watered the earth... So will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed. They'll do the work I sent them to do, they'll complete the assignment I gave them (Isaiah 55:10-l1). The Spirit of God is anxious to work on you! This book portrays the Almighty God as one who put an extremely high price on His love for us humans. We need to love Him in return while showing Him reverence and fear. Spurn His love too often and we could end up facing His wrath. The ultimate Lover wants you to fi nd Him so He can lavish His expensive love on you.

Have you heard about “God’s mystery”? Were you aware that when God finally revealed the truth of this mystery, its power changed the course of history? What is God’s Mystery? opens anew the door to God’s greatest plan, and explains how it continues to affect each of us today. Plus, have you ever been asked other questions about the Bible that were difficult to answer? We have. These inquiries have come from church members, our family, close friends, and even our own curiosity. As an example, how would you answer a question like, “If God made everything (John 1:3) and everything was good (Genesis 1:31), then where did Satan and the demons come from?” People have wrestled with questions such as, “When we die do we become angels and play harps in heaven? What does the Bible tell us about hell, or the date of the end of time? How can we know God’s will for our lives?” Also, what does the Bible say about personal issues such as drinking wine, going to the movies, watching television, or judging others? What is God’s design for sex and marriage in today’s changing world? Did you realize Jesus actually mentions four conditions of man? These were questions that we felt deserved deeper answers than the traditional responses. Our concentrated search into God’s Word has resulted in discoveries, supported by scripture, that we believe are so important they need to be made available for anyone who honestly desires to know God’s will. We believe you will find this study very rewarding. And, more importantly, it might spark an interest in studying the Bible that will help you better know its real Author – the Lord God Almighty.
