You have a life worth living, because God made you for a purpose. Some purposes are quick and short, while others are long and foundational. In Gods eyes, each of us have equal value. And your life is as important to God as the prophets of old, or the Disciples. Your life can be beautiful, even if it is challenging. To know Almighty God, you need to step back and see God at work over a whole lifetime. If you read the Old Testament you begin to see the might, majesty and power and eternity of God Almighty. The Old Testament of the Bible teaches you to think, in one aspect, like God does, in terms of valuable lifetimes. You have a valuable life, and you have a lifetime, and you have a God-given purpose. You are as important as the highest ranking human being on planet Earth in Gods eyes. And His opinion is the only one that actually counts. While you journey through these pages you will find precious insights and actions that you can apply to your own life. As you do you will experience the One and Only God, and not only will you get to know Him, but you will learn how to give Him the opportunity to get to know you. This book gives you a clear window into the work of the One God, as the Father, as Jesus, and as Holy Spirit. By the time you finish this book you will have witnessed the moulding process that God used to permit and create the defining events which would cause Rick Evans to be led to fulfil one of the reasons he was created. Rick Evans purpose, amongst other things is encapsulated in what he was told to do on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem at the Feast of Yom Kippur in 5776 (2015) (The day of the Blood Moon). The short book Thirty Pieces of Silver is woven into this book to give you an opportunity to witness God and servant communicating and at work. (Jeremiah 29:11-13) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Renowned scholar Robert Adams explores the relation between religion and ethics through a comprehensive philosophical account of a theistically-based framework for ethics. Adams' framework begins with the good rather than the right, and with excellence rather than usefulness. He argues that loving the excellent, of which adoring God is a clear example, is the most fundamental aspect of a life well lived. Developing his original and detailed theory, Adams contends that devotion, the sacred, grace, martyrdom, worship, vocation, faith, and other concepts drawn from religious ethics have been sorely overlooked in moral philosophy and can enrich the texture of ethical thought.

Divine Teaching and the Way of the World

Samuel Fleischacker defends what the Enlightenment called 'revealed religion': religions that regard a certain text or oral teaching as sacred, as wholly authoritative over one's life. At the same time, he maintains that revealed religions stand in danger of corruption or fanaticism unless they are combined with secular scientific practices and a secular morality. The first two parts of Divine Teaching and the Way of the World argue that the cognitive and moral practices of a society should prescind from religious commitments — they constitute a secular 'way of the world', to adapt a phrase from the Jewish tradition, allowing human beings to work together regardless of their religious differences. But the way of the world breaks down when it comes to the question of what we live for, and it is this that revealed religions can illumine. Fleischacker first suggests that secular conceptions of why life is worth living are often poorly grounded, before going on to explore what revelation is, how it can answer the question of worth better than secular worldviews do, and how the revealed and way-of-the-world elements of a religious tradition can be brought together.

Whoever said happiness was a pursuit wasn't kidding. We search high and low, spend money we may or may not have, engage in all kinds of behaviors for good and ill, and still come up short in the happiness department. Happiness becomes a destination we're supposed to teach, but we never seem to get there. If happiness is a destination, who has the directions? In Happy for the Rest of Your Life, Dr. Gregory Jantz will use scriptural truths and personal examples to teach, enlighten, encourage, and motivate as he explains: * Our misconceptions about what happiness is and where to find it * Dead ends on the road to happiness * Why God is really the author of "Don't Worry, Be Happy"
