Is death the end? Will there really be an afterlife? Does the Christian teaching about Heaven actually bring anyone real peace? Having been plagued by such questions, the author set out to find answers. This book is the result of one man’s struggle with the certainty of the grave. In the first half, the scriptures are applied in an attempt to develop a Christian view of demise. However, section two draws on the best evidence from philosophy, science, history and personal experience that death is not the end. Throughout the book various types of death are examined and each one is likened to a doorway. If death is a doorway, everyone has their own idea of what it will look like. All of this enables the reader to construct a healthy view of death’s door so that they may one day pass gracefully. Whether you are wrestling with the death of a loved one, facing the end of your own life, or live in fear of the grave, Death is a Doorway was written for you.
The book of Romans is one of the most important New Testament documents with respect to Christian doctrine. Certain passages are matters of great debate in the church today. A clear exposition of this great work is, therefore, urgently needed by the church of the 21st century. In his treatment of it, Dr. Hunter makes these difficult concepts and doctrines more easily digestible for the layman. It is for this reason that previous editions of this work have become invaluable to lay Christians.
Revelation by Dr Harold F Hunter Th D, Harold Hunter
“How exciting will be our study together! We will soar over and smoking earth of the Tribulation Period, we will watch with amazement the maniacal madness of the Antichrist, we will experience the thrill of the ultimate victory at Armageddon, we will know the childlike delights of the Millennial Kingdom, we will savor the final demise of old Lucifer, we will mentally enter the somber halls of the Judgment, we will swell with expectancy as the New Jerusalem descends, and we will feel the glad triumph when we crown Him with many crowns! lt is a book of ‘things to come!'” – Harold F. Hunter
Dr. Hunter has given us for the first time a book on spiritual warfare that will serve hurting Christians as a spiritual first aid kit. Insightful personal illustrations and solid biblical truth anchor this invaluable work.
Scripture is clear that every believer is called to give an answer to anyone who asks a reason for their hope. Sadly, this usually does not happen because churchgoers of every age feel that learning how to give evidences and arguments for the faith is too complicated or confrontational. Its not! This book represents the authors best effort at making this subject simple and memorable. CORE FACTS is designed for Christians to memorize and use individually or with existing personal evangelism strategies, but it is also aimed at anyone who is skeptical of Christian beliefs. Examine the evidence with your own eyes.
The internationally acclaimed last work by the legendary Latin American writer Master storyteller Eduardo Galeano was unique among his contemporaries (Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Mario Vargas Llosa among them) for his commitment to retelling our many histories, including the stories of those who were disenfranchised. A philosopher poet, his nonfiction is infused with such passion and imagination that it matches the intensity and the appeal of Latin America’s very best fiction. Comprised of all new material, published here for the first time in a wonderful English translation by longtime collaborator Mark Fried, Hunter of Stories is a deeply considered collection of Galeano’s final musings and stories on history, memory, humor, and tragedy. Written in his signature style–vignettes that fluidly combine dialogue, fables, and anecdotes–every page displays the original thinking and compassion that has earned Galeano decades and continents of renown.
This document explores the transition from an analog to a digital environment for knowledge access, preservation, and reconstitution, and the implications of this transition for managing research collections. The volume comprises three reports. The first, “Can a New Research Library be All-Digital?” By Lisa Spiro and Geneva Henry, explores the degree to which a new research library can eschew print. The second, “On the Cost of Keeping a Book,” by Paul Courant and Matthew “Buzzy” Nielsen, argues that from the perspective of long-term storage, digital surrogates offer a considerable cost savings over print-based libraries. The final report, “Ghostlier Demarcations,” examines how well large text databases being created by Google Books and other mass-digitization efforts meet the needs of scholars, and the larger implications of these projects for research, teaching, and publishing. The reports are introduced by Charles Henry; the volume includes a conclusion by Roger Schonfeld and an epilogue by Charles Henry. (Individual articles contain tables, figures, and footnotes.).
