The Nebula Award–winning author of Kindred presents a “gripping” dystopian novel about a woman fleeing Los Angeles as America spirals into chaos (The New York Times Book Review). Lauren Olamina and her family live in one of the only safe neighborhoods remaining on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Behind the walls of their defended enclave, Lauren’s father, a preacher, and a handful of other citizens try to salvage what remains of a culture that has been destroyed by drugs, war, and chronic shortages of water, gasoline, and more. While her father tries to lead people on the righteous path, Lauren struggles with hyperempathy, a condition that makes her extraordinarily sensitive to the pain of others. When fire destroys their compound, Lauren’s family is killed and she is forced out into a world that is facing apocalypse. With a handful of other refugees, Lauren must make her way north to safety, along the way conceiving a revolutionary idea that may mean salvation for all mankind. From a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship who has won multiple Nebula and Hugo Awards, this iconic novel is “a gripping tale of survival and a poignant account of growing up sane in a disintegrating world” (The New York Times Book Review). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Octavia E. Butler including rare images from the author’s estate.

The Parables of Jesus

Publisher: Fortress Press
ISBN: 1451413246
Release Date:
Genre: Religion

A premier New Testament scholar explores how Jesus' trial and execution are portrayed in the New Testament and how that portrayal has affected biblical studies, Christian theology, and Jewish-Christian relations through history. Tomson has written an accessible, responsible analysis of the biblical accounts of Jesus' death, demonstrating how, through compounded misunderstandings, they contributed to anti-Jewish sentiment in the early church and later history. Tomson's question of how Jesus is to be understood in his first-century Judean context is a critical one not only for biblical scholars, but for anyone concerned about human rights and interreligious dialogue today.

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."

Jesus and Dirt

Genre:

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!
