God´s Strange Act: The Destiny of Ephraim And the Restoration of the House of Israel: Doug Hatten
Magena´s a captive in the real world. Daniel´s a captive in the virtual world - and if his captor discovers the secret to passing between worlds, her satanic powers will be unleashed in reality. When Yasmeen orders Daniel´s execution by her Baal worshipers, he delays her death decree. But how long can he prevail against the self-proclaimed Queen Jezebel? Meanwhile, Magena meets Reuben, one of the 12 Sons of Destiny, descendants of Israel´s ancient tribal leaders. Together, they must escape and rescue Daniel before the Jewels of Jezebel find their way into the wrong hands. Pursued by Yasmeen/Jezebel and her demon-possessed Hive of Baal, as well as a modern megalomaniac with an army, it´s up to Daniel and Magena - and the Sons of Destiny - to stop evil before it´s too late. But will they ever see each other again? Will they survive the dangerous challenges in the last days? The Sons of Destiny is the third novel in the exciting Reluctant Hero trilogy by acclaimed Christian author Summer Lee, featuring psychology graduate Daniel DiBenedetto and historian Magena Nightcloud. Together, they seek biblical artifacts and discover Christian meaning in their adventure quests. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Grothe.

In Like Dreamers, acclaimed journalist Yossi Klein Halevi interweaves the stories of a group of 1967 paratroopers who reunited Jerusalem, tracing the history of Israel and the divergent ideologies shaping it from the Six-Day War to the present. Following the lives of seven young members from the 55th Paratroopers Reserve Brigade, the unit responsible for restoring Jewish sovereignty to Jerusalem, Halevi reveals how this band of brothers played pivotal roles in shaping Israel´s destiny long after their historic victory. While they worked together to reunite their country in 1967, these men harbored drastically different visions for Israel´s future. One emerges at the forefront of the religious settlement movement, while another is instrumental in the 2005 unilateral withdrawal from Gaza. One becomes a driving force in the growth of Israel´s capitalist economy, while another ardently defends the socialist kibbutzim. One is a leading peace activist, while another helps create an anti-Zionist terror underground in Damascus. Like Dreamers is a nuanced, in-depth look at these diverse men and the conflicting beliefs that have helped to define modern Israel and the Middle East. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mel Foster.

Are your roots firmly grounded in scripture? The destiny of Israel and the Christian church is bound together, evident in the scriptures. Learning this truth is essential for survival. Jewish Roots: Understanding Your Jewish Faith is an introduction to biblical theology from a Jewish contextual point of view, plus practical evaluation and council for the Messianic Jewish communities and the Christian church. Jewish Roots presents the fundamentals regarding biblical theology, Israel and the church, the Jewish people, the Messianic Jewish community, and much more. Important matters are discussed such as the relationship of law and grace, the role of the spirit, and an approach to Judaism. This new edition considers recent biblical scholarship and evaluates the progress of the Messianic Jewish community - a pulsating grass roots movement among Jewish and non-Jewish followers of Jesus of Nazareth who recognize and identify with their Jewishness. Messianic Judaism and Messianic Jewish biblical theology are significant not only to those who are part of Messianic Jewish congregations - indeed, because the destiny of Israel and the Church is bound together, Messianic Jewish theology has implications of great importance for all people worldwide. 1.

The book of Leviticus establishes the premise that the purpose of Israel´s exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land, by way of the wilderness, was to provide the circumstances and conditions for a personal and intimate knowledge of their god. The god of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob suggests that these men had an intimate and personal knowledge of their god through a life-transforming experience. While sojourning in Egypt for 430 years, the nation of Israel did not have a personal knowledge as their forefathers had. Nothing could be more important to their existence, mission, and destiny than their wilderness experience. They experienced god´s power on the eve of their exodus from Egypt. But they also needed to experience his holiness. This volume lays out the offerings of atonement by which they would gain such vital knowledge. It is remarkable that the offerings of atonement symbolized Christ´s eternal atonement. And since the atonement under the law was principled on Christ´s atonement, it was efficacious to make Israel a holy and peculiar nation. But the Five Principal Offerings are even more revealing because these offerings symbolized the five wounds Christ suffered on the cross. Like Israel, by the cross, we can all have a personal experience of divine holiness. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Utley.
