The book of Psalms is filled with sad songs of lamentation, raw prayers pleading for mercy, poetry about the work and nature of God, and beautiful hymns of praise. Many believers have found these prayers of Israel to be a source of comfort and hope and especially helpful in their own prayer lives. Although this is Israel´s book of prayers, it is also an enduring prayer book for God´s people forever. Listen to the Psalms and be astounded by each poem´s relevancy to your own life. 1.

Despite the popular theology of our day, Christians should not expect to get out of experiencing the tribulation or the end times. Nowhere in the Bible does the Lord promise us this, say Michael Brown and Craig Keener, two leading, acclaimed Bible scholars. In fact, they say, Jesus promises us tribulation in this world. Yet this is no reason to fear. In this fascinating, accessible, and personal book, Brown and Keener walk you through what the Bible really says about the rapture, the tribulation, and the end times. What they find will leave you full of hope. God´s wrath is not poured out on His people, and He will shield us from it - as he shielded Israel in Egypt during the 10 plagues. So instead of taking comfort in what God hasn´t promised, take comfort in the words of Jesus: He has overcome the world, and we live in his victory. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George W. Sarris.

1948. Young Jonathan Lusk´s life was perfect. Big Boston house. Swimming pool. Summers on the Cape. His father a Nobel Prize winning Harvard professor; his mother the beautiful only child of Boston socialites. When his parents get caught between rival Arab and Jewish faculty over the creation of the State of Israel, Jonathan´s life is turned upside down. He soon finds himself in Japan, living with his grandfather, former American Ambassador and a judge on the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunals. American opulence and comfort is abruptly replaced by subtle Japanese elegance and traditional austerity. The boy is thrust into a life among strangers and forced to navigate his way through a new country, foreign customs, unfamiliar language, and ultimately political intrigue that will threaten his life. This suspenseful story, one of personal survival, is a testament to a young boy´s perseverance and to human courage and loyalty that are sometimes found in unexpected places. 1. Language: English.

Len Cooper is ample proof that every American black man´s story is not the same. He has been a boy in brutal segregated Alabama and an invisible homeless man in the nation´s capital. He sought holiness and comfort, entering a monastery to become a priest at a time when the Catholic Church was in denial about racism, homosexuality, and robed predators. Still, Cooper rises to become a writer and a world traveler who finds solace and home in a land that is supposed to be foreign: Israel. (Patrice Gaines, author, Laughing in the Dark: From Colored Girl to Woman of Color, a Journey from Prison to Power) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Len Cooper.

Long ago, when Israel had become aware of her unique history, she began to collect and recount the saving acts of her God. She concluded that God had chosen her and brought her from the lowest level of society through slavery into the Promised Land. In the glorious days of Solomon, she had the leisure to contemplate and to write down what her God had done for her. She testified that her God was the God of promises who was faithful to his covenants.The Promises of God beautifully and systematically records the responses from the leaders of this community of faith that were given to God´s people. Though their answers were far from unanimous, they gave a guide to the generations of faithful people who have sought to live in covenant with their God in difficult times. Due to the perilous times in which we live, The Promises of God offers comfort as we consider the faithfulness of our great and holy God. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark McDevitt.

As night falls on a forbidding desert track, a little girl sits by a bullet-riddled bus, too frightened to cry. The violated body of her mother lies a few yards away. Her father, the bus driver, sits slumped over the wheel; his blood has mingled with that of 12 dead passengers. She can´t see her older brother. In a few hours, an army patrol stumbles onto the scene of what the morning newspapers will call The Massacre at Scorpions Pass. In Israel, in 1954, a five-year-old girl who had witnessed her family and nine others shot or bludgeoned to death was offered sympathy, but little else. Her closest relatives placed her in a kibbutz commune while swindling her out of a modest inheritance. And this was just the start of her troubles. Miri´s life journey is a study in the power of tenacity, boundless optimism, and survival. Through an abusive marriage, separation from her children, three careers, and an entanglement with organized crime, she picks herself up time after time. In the final chapters, Miri makes her peace with the desert, comes to terms with survivor´s guilt, and is reconciled with her children. The key moment in this turn-around happens far from Israel when she helps her second husband fulfill his dream of crossing the ocean in a small boat. Miri and the State of Israel were both born in 1948, and her story is laced together with evocative scenes from the country´s own biography. From Tel Aviv in the austere 1950s, to the relative comfort of a kibbutz, helping unearth Masada, and serving in uniform during the Six Day War, the author´s vivid memories and stark honesty about herself make compelling listening. Today, Miri lives in Netanya, is a proud grandmother, and is a regular speaker on the topics of terror, it´s victims, and survivor´s guilt. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Sanders.

Psalms is Israel´s hymnal: It is poetry laced with strong theology. In Hebrew, this book is called Tehillim, which means ´´Praises´´. There are 55 psalms addressed to ´´the chief musician´´. [Greek: psalmoi, ´´a poem to be sung to a stringed instrument´´ or psaltar, for harp or stringed instrument.] History instructs; law teaches; prophecy announces, rebukes, chastens; morality persuades. Psalms is the medicine and succor for the comfort and encouragement of us all. They are written to the individual - all of us, individually. Jesus said that the psalms spoke about him (Lk 24:44). Christ´s birth, betrayal, agony, death, resurrection, ascension, coming again in glory, and his worldwide reign - all are pictured in inspired vividness. They constitute irrefutable testimony to the divine inspiration of the Scripture. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chuck Missler.
