Is God changeable? Does He have different gospels for different people? The story of redemption takes you behind the scenes in the struggle between God and Satan. It explains how the conflict began, what the issues are, and how the outcome is already assured. It traces the theme of God's relationship with man from the garden of Edan to the return of Christ and beyond.

The book of Exodus reveals the redemptive plan of God taking the children of Israel out of Egypt and into the land of milk and honey, the Promised Land. After we are born again, our journey with Jesus/Yeshua, our Messiah, is a reflection of the children of Israel. We go through times of dryness when it seems God has forsaken us, our prayers don’t go past the ceiling, and we are constantly distracted by vain imaginations. We are buffeted by the cares of this world and wonder if it will ever end. In the face of that discouragement, we are tempted to give up and return to our old pagan (un-Christian) ways. The Israelites often murmured against Moses and complained about their circumstance saying, when will we come into the Land of Promise? When will we see that land of milk and honey? Hang on! Don’t give up. If you are looking for Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah, you will find Him throughout the book of Exodus. It’s His story and it’s our story too. Psalm 145:14 says, “The LORD upholds all that fall and raises up all those that are bowed down.” He is our redeemer, sanctifier, healer, and coming king. “In these days of instant demands and knowledge, we find an author who gives us a concept that knowledge must come from His Spirit. Jane Owens walks us along that understanding of these books called Torah—God’s loving teaching and instructions.” —Curtis C. Taylor, senior pastor, Beit Lechem Ministries, Colorado “Jane Owens has taken the book of Exodus, which is 3,500 years old, and made it relevant for today. She was inspired to inspire others as a pastor that leads the sheep. This book is a valuable resource and needed in the body of Christ.” —Pastor Nicholas Plummer, Beit Tehila Congregation, Brandon, Florida
And the magicians did so with their enchant‐ments, and brought up frogs upon

Isaiah 6:9 is a prophecy to Israel that they will "hear but not understand"; that they will "see but not perceive" this word from God to the nation was evident even when Jesus, the Messiah, came to Israel. They heard Him and saw Him but did not understand Him or perceive who He was. As a result, a "spirit of slumber" is upon the people to this day (Isaiah 29:10, Romans 11:7-8). Nationally, Israel has not yet awakened to belief in Jesus. But there is good news! The Jews are still God's chosen people, and God promises their joyous redemption to come (Romans 11:25-27). Angella Thomas delivers a two-pronged message of hope and challenge: Jewish readers will be given hope when they see the remedy for this historical blindness, and Christians will be challenged to join God in fulfilling the redemption of His people. "But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation...." Isaiah 45:17.

The entire #1 New York Times bestselling Magicians trilogy, including The Magicians, The Magician King, and The Magician's Land, now available in one ebook bundle The Magicians Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. A high school math genius, he’s secretly fascinated with a series of children’s fantasy novels set in a magical land called Fillory, and real life is disappointing by comparison. When Quentin is unexpectedly admitted to an elite, secret college of magic, it looks like his wildest dreams may have come true. But his newfound powers lead him down a rabbit hole of hedonism and disillusionment, and ultimately to the dark secret behind the story of Fillory. The land of his childhood fantasies turns out to be much darker and more dangerous than he ever could have imagined . . . The Magicians is one of the most daring and inventive works of literary fantasy in years. No one who has escaped into the worlds of Narnia and Harry Potter should miss this breathtaking return to the landscape of the imagination. The Magician King Quentin Coldwater should be happy. He escaped a miserable Brooklyn childhood, matriculated at a secret college for magic, and graduated to discover that Fillory—a fictional utopia—was actually real. But even as a Fillorian king, Quentin finds little peace. His old restlessness returns, and he longs for the thrills a heroic quest can bring. Accompanied by his oldest friend, Julia, Quentin sets off—only to somehow wind up back in the real-world and not in Fillory, as they’d hoped. As the pair struggle to find their way back to their lost kingdom, Quentin is forced to rely on Julia’s illicitly learned sorcery as they face a sinister threat in a world very far from the beloved fantasy novels of their youth. The Magician's Land Quentin Coldwater has lost everything. He has been cast out of Fillory, the secret magical world of his childhood dreams that he once ruled. With nothing left to lose he returns to where his story began, the Brakebills Preparatory College of Magic. But he can’t hide from his past, and it’s not long before it comes looking for him. Meanwhile, the magical barriers that keep Fillory safe are failing, and barbarians from the north have invaded. Eliot and Janet, the rulers of Fillory, embark on a final quest to save their beloved world, only to discover a situation far more complex—and far more dire—than anyone had envisioned. Along with Plum, a brilliant young magician with a dark secret of her own, Quentin sets out on a crooked path through a magical demimonde of gray magic and desperate characters. His new life takes him back to old haunts, like Antarctica and the Neitherlands, and old friends he thought were lost forever. The Magician’s Land is an intricate and fantastical thriller, and an epic of love and redemption that brings the Magicians trilogy to a magnificent conclusion, confirming it as one of the great achievements in modern fantasy.

According to Farrell Lee, a Singer story often takes the form of a meditation, with the dilemma of life and death the frequent core of that meditation. The protagonist seeks a source of meaning that might give significance to life; the human predicament is to be exiled from that source of meaning. More than other contemporary writers, Singer uses biblical images to confront questions of meaning, with the Kabbalah serving as subtext for much of his work. Singer secularizes religious material, equating the biblical image of a God who hides his face and the modern image of a cosmos empty of transcendent meaning. Singer is distinguished from other contemporary writers because in the midst of his images of secular and biblical despair shines a ray of hope. He sees value in seeking answers, noting that to find answers to the essential questions one must be redeemed from exile.
