Innovative excursion into New Testament teaching on the earthly life of faith What does it mean to "get saved"? Is conversion a gift of God's grace but the post-conversion Christian life in our own hands? Is the covenant relationship sustained by a sense of personal gratitude for God's past gift of conversion -- or is post-conversion faithfulness itself an ongoing gift from God? In this book Charles H. Talbert and Jason A. Whitlark, together with Andrew E. Arterbury, Clifford A. Barbarick, Scott J. Hafemann, and Michael W. Martin, address such questions about God's role in the Christian's life. Through careful, consistent exegesis of relevant New Testament texts, they show that "getting saved" involves both God's forgiveness and God's enablement to obey -- or "new covenant piety" -- from initial conversion to eschatological salvation.

Share with your children the whole story of the God who loves! Do your children know that Christmas was a rescue mission so that people could be friends with God? Through this Advent storybook, you can introduce your little ones to the loving God, the Savior of mankind, and the meaning of His birth. Every day features a 1-minute, easy-to-read-aloud story, with colorful, fascinating artwork, and a friendly little bug to hunt and find somewhere on the page. The 25 engaging stories spanning the entire Bible will make sharing the true meaning of Christmas with your little ones a simple and fun task. This Advent experience has children eagerly anticipating each new day s story asking things like, Is today the day? Is this the day that the man comes to beat the snake? The final day when the story reveals that it s God Himself who comes, one little boy looked up with a grin and said, Figured it would probably be Him. Since He loves us so much, I mean. The author tells how the book came to be. One year I set up an Advent calendar of Christmas activities, and started looking for an Advent book to share with my little charges the greatest love story of all eternity. "Except, I couldn t find just the right one. There were lots of books that were beautiful and interesting and would have been amazing, except they were all missing some element that I desperately desired. -- I needed a book that started at the beginning, that told the story from the moment God existed and nothing else did. -- I needed a book that was short and to-the-point, because these rambunctious boys were not going to stay focused for more than a few minutes. -- I needed a book that told the whole story how Jesus was promised from the garden and everything we learn after that just pointed to Him. "So, what does any writer-of-a-woman do? I grabbed a composition notebook and pencil and a box of crayons, and made my own." Share with your little loved ones the Christmas story of the One who created Love itself."

Once Before Time

A Whole Story of the Universe

Author: Martin Bojowald

Category: Science

Page: 320

In 2000, Martin Bojowald, then a twenty-seven-year-old post-doc at Pennsylvania State University, used a relatively new theory called loop quantum gravity—a cunning combination of Einstein’s theory of gravity with quantum mechanics—to create a simple model of the universe. Loop quantum cosmology was born, and with it, a theory that managed to do something even Einstein’s general theory of relativity had failed to do—illuminate the very birth of the universe. Ever since, loop quantum cosmology, or LQC, has been tantalizing physicists with the idea that our universe could conceivably have emerged from the collapse of a previous one. Now the theory is poised to formulate hypotheses we can actually test. If they are verified, the big bang will give way to the big bounce. Instead of a universe that emerged from a point of infinite density, we will have one that recycles, possibly through an eternal series of expansions and contractions, with no beginning and no end. Bojowald’s major realization was that unlike general relativity, the physics of LQC do not break down at the big bang. The greatest mystery surrounding the origin of the universe is what cosmologists call the big bang “singularity”—the point at the beginning of the universe, prior to the existence of space and time, when gravity, along with the temperature and density of the universe, becomes infinite. The equations of general relativity can’t cope with such infinities, and as a result big bang theory has never been able to give any explanation for the initial condition of our universe, succeeding only in describing and explaining the evolution of the universe from that instant onward. Bojowald’s theory takes us right up to the first moment of the universe—and then back, even before the big bang itself. From the Hardcover edition.
