When unattended environmental and economic crises lead to social breakdown, no one is safe. In a night of fire and death, Lauren Olamina, the young daughter of a minister, loses her family and home and ventures out from their ravaged gated community into the unprotected American landscape. But what begins as a fight for survival soon leads to something much more: a startling vision of human destiny ... and the birth of a new faith.
A collector's edition box-set of two of Octavia E. Butler's most visionary science-fiction novels. Parable of the Sower is the Butlerian odyssey of one woman in 2015, Lauren Olamina, who is twice as feeling in a world that has become doubly dehumanized. Its sequel, Parable of the Talents, follows Lauren's daughter, living in a war-torn continent with a far-right religious crusader in the office of the U.S. presidency. Together these books present a dystopian landscape about a society whose very fabric has been torn asunder.
Seeding the Heart studies Jesus? account of The Parable of the Sower and its relationship to the hearts of men. The book provides commentary on Jesus? description and interpretation of the various soils mentioned in his parable. Each soil represents a particular condition of man?s heart in response to the word of God as typified by the planted seed. The soils of the parable are the wayside, the stony, the thorns and the good ground. The author uses each soil to illustrate both Jesus? explanation of the parable and the spiritual condition of the modern Christian. The way side represents the indifferent Christian, the stony the unstable Christian, the thorny as the worldly Christian and the good as the fruitful Christian. Pertinent issues that affect Christians of today are noted in each aspect of given parable. Also included is a related chapter on the sowing and reaping principle with Biblical examples to help understand the consequences of man?s actions to Divine truth.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Parable of the Sower is one of the parables of Jesus found in three (often called the Synoptic Gospels) out of the four Canonical gospels and in the non-canonical Gospel of Thomas In this story, a sower dropped seed on the path, on rocky ground, and among thorns, and the seed was lost; but when seed fell on good earth, it grew, yielding thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold.
A Cultivated Heart explores the parable of the Sower. The condition of man's heart is reflected by the conditions of the soils spoken of by Christ in the parable. There is a cultivation process that takes place when we eat of the Word and digest it. "We are what we if." Is not only true when we are speaking of food. When we consume the Word, the Word becomes a part of our very being. It is our responsibility to study the Word and because it is a living Word it will continue to cultivate our hearts, so that we will be in the perfect will of Yah. Spreading the gospel and being a mature witness on the behalf of the Kingdom. This book was written as a study tool for the body of Christ. In studying the Kingdom Parable of the Sower we pray that you-the reader-will be able to plunge into your inherited position as a predestined ruler on earth. I Cor. 4:20 reads: "For the kingdom of Yah is not in word but in power." We just can't talk the talk we have to walk the walk. (James 1:22) Talking the talk is religion, walking the walk is taking authority. I pray that your mind will be renewed as you study the message of Yahshua. "The Sower."
This parable should really be entitled "The Parable of the Soil", because the story, and the truths emphasized therein, do not focus on the one sowing seed. The focus of the story is about the soil. It's about dirt. In Matthew 13, Jesus taught how the hearts of people can differ regarding openness, or receptiveness, to God's Word. And who knows the hearts of mankind better than the Creator/Carpenter? He has the dirt on all of us!
