Carl Sagan, a prominent American astrophysicist and philosopher said, “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.” The Bible does just that! The Scriptures are self revealing, self interpreting and self dramatic. Questions about the origin and foundation of the universe and the earth continue to confound the paleontologist, the astrophysicist, and even the theologian. While many mysteries of the universe are being progressively unlocked in our age of technological advances and discoveries, questions begging definitive resolutions still remain unanswered. Such questions posed are: Why and how did the dinosaur become extinct? What became of Eden, the garden of God? Did Atlantis really exist and how was it destroyed? What is the newest planet in our solar system and where did it come from? Surprisingly, definitive resolutions to these questions and more are contained within the pages of the Bible in ofttimes dramatic detail, translated into all languages. Only through divine inspiration can the extraordinary information penned by the prophets of old confirm the many wonders of the universe and the world that have come to light in our modern age of scientific exploration and discovery. “God frustrates the tokens of the liars, and makes diviners mad; that turns wise men backward and makes their knowledge foolish” ( Isaiah 44:25 ).
The universe (creations) that are perceived by the senses of human beings are Shifath-Asma (character) and the Wujud which is invisible and appears to be opposite to the character is the object. Character cannot be separate from object.

The Spiritual Leader explains with copious evidence the views held by other religions too that the truth "La Ilaha Illallah", that being the lifeline of Tawheed and that there is no Ilah (creation) but Allah. He has thrown a challenge to anyone who can disprove this truth offering a handsome reward. Until now no one has come forward to take up his challenge. Allah is an arbitrary name and it does not point to something static or stationery. This name denotes something beyond time and space and the reach of human knowledge and has manifested as the whole universe. If one becomes aware of this truth, peace and tranquility will be eternal in his heart and mind.

Jesus models a much richer vision of friendship. Scott Sauls, pastor and teacher, invites you to see the breadth of Christ’s love in this book, BeFriend.
Author: Scott Sauls
2017 ECPA Christian Book Award Finalist (Faith and Culture category) Is real friendship too risky? We live in a world where real friendship is hard to find. Suspicious of others and insecure about ourselves, we retreat into the safety of our small, self-made worlds. Now more than ever, it’s easy to avoid people with whom we disagree or whose life experiences don’t mirror our own. Safe among like-minded peers and digital “friends,” we really don’t have to engage with those who can challenge and enhance our limited perspectives. Tragically, even the church can become a place that minimizes diversity and reinforces isolation. Jesus models a much richer vision of friendship. Scott Sauls, pastor and teacher, invites you to see the breadth of Christ’s love in this book, BeFriend. Join Scott on this journey through twenty-one meditations to inspire actively pursuing God’s love through expanding your circle of friends. Scott has met too many people whose first impulse is to fence off their lives with relational barriers that only end up starving their own souls. Yes, it’s true: Real friendship is costly. Love does make us vulnerable. But without risk, our lives will remain impoverished. Join Scott in BeFriend as he summons you toward diverse friendship that can enrich your life and, in the process, reveal a better version of yourself.

This comprehensive work provides many insights as to how decisions are made. Acknowledging the fact that most decisions are made intuitively, the author shows how intuition itself can be studied and educated.
It is, for Williams, such an advent because it accomplishes two things that the narratives of Israel had taught attentive listeners to be the works of God – judgement and creation. In enacting, as a creaturely another, a life wherein ...

Brett Gray traces the portrayal of Christ that emerges throughout Williams' diverse writings, including in his engagements with literature and philosophy. What emerges is a vision of Jesus that grows from the roots of the Christian tradition, but is pronounced in a contemporary idiom and sensitive to modern concerns. Although attentive to the broad sweep of the Christian tradition, Williams' Christology is also seen in this book to be a particular British artefact, shaped in dialogue with thinkers such as Donald MacKinnon and Gillian Rose. What is ultimately brought to the surface in this work is the profoundly hopeful, if frequently under-pronounced, eschatology underlying Williams' Christology. Jesus is the “last word”, changing creation's possibilities and summoning it into an endless and vivifying journey.
