The Lost Art of Scripture
12,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In our increasingly secular world, holy texts are at best seen as irrelevant, and at worst as an excuse to incite violence, hatred and division. So what value, if any, can scripture hold for us today? And if our world no longer seems compatible with scripture, is it perhaps because its original purpose has become lost? Today we see the Quran being used by some to justify war and terrorism, the Torah to deny Palestinians the right to live in the Land of Israel, and the Bible to condemn homosexuality and contraception. The holy texts at the centre of all religious traditions are often employed selectively to underwrite arbitrary and subjective views. They are believed to be divinely ordained; they are claimed to contain eternal truths. But as Karen Armstrong, a world authority on religious affairs, shows in this fascinating journey through millennia of history, this narrow reading of scripture is a relatively recent phenomenon. For hundreds of years these texts were instead viewed as spiritual tools: scripture was a means for the individual to connect with the divine, to transcend their physical existence, and to experience a higher level of consciousness. Holy texts were seen as fluid and adaptable, rather than a set of binding archaic rules or a 'truth' that has to be 'believed'. Armstrong argues that only by rediscovering an open engagement with their holy texts will the world's religions be able to curtail arrogance, intolerance and violence. And if scripture is used to engage with the world in more meaningful and compassionate ways, we will find that it still has a great deal to teach us.

Betrothal
45,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Betrothal (also called espousal) is a formal state of engagement to be married. Historically betrothal was a formal contract, blessed or officiated by a religious authority. Betrothal was binding as marriage and a divorce was necessary to terminate a betrothal. Betrothed couples were regarded legally as husband and wife - even before their wedding and physical union. In Jewish weddings the betrothal is part of the Jewish wedding ceremony. Typical steps of a betrothal were: Usually done by the couple's families with bride and groom having no input. This is no longer practiced except in some cultures (e.g. limited groups of conservatives in Israel, India), and most of these have a requirement that the bride be allowed at least veto power. Negotiation of bride price or dowry, In modern practice these have been reduced to the symbolic engagement ring. Blessing by clergy, Exchange of Vows and Signing of Contracts, Often one of these is omitted, Celebration. The exact duration of a betrothal varies according to culture and the participants needs and wishes.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ya''akov Ne''eman is an Israeli lawyer and the current Minister of Justice. On December 8, 2009, while serving as the Minister of Justice, Ne''eman gave a speech at a Judicial Conference in Jerusalem said that he believed that Halakha should gradually be made binding law in Israel, with the ultimate goal of making Israel a Halachic state. "Step by step, we will bestow upon the citizens of Israel the laws of the Torah and we will turn Halakha into the binding law of the nation . We must bring back the heritage of our fathers to the nation of Israel. The Torah has the complete solution to all of the questions we are dealing with." In effect, the Justice Minister of a Modern Democracy called for the replacement of the nation''s civil law by Mosaic theocratic law. Essentially he took the same relative structural positions as the most extreme fundamentalist Moslems who call for Sharia (Islamic Law) to govern modern society.

Christian Triumphant Living
19,70 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Christians are a new creation and children of the Most High, brothers and friends of the Resurrected Lord Jesus Christ. So why most of us confess defeat and fear in our Christian walk? The problem is lack of truth that comes from the Word of God, and the lack of guidance by the Holy Spirit. This book addresses the problem of doubts and ignorance, problem of wrong doctrines which put the saints into a legalistic bondage. Instead of rejoicing for the abundant grace revealed in Jesus Christ, preachers force people to fulfill the law which was for Jews only and now replaced by the New Testament. The book speaks of God's love for sinners and believer's obligation to love others. Our fight is not against human beings but against the powers of the spiritual realm, revealed to us by Jesus during his ministry on earth. Speaks of Jesus as superior to Adam and Moses the servant of the Old Testament. The New Testament is far superior and a living Testament binding the new Israel to God. We should no longer be entangled with the Law but rejoice in the Grace that came with the New Testament made by a better sacrifice of the Lamb of God. That's why Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life.

w. KlingmUller Lehrstuhl fUr Genetik, Universitat Bayreuth, UniversitatsstraBe 30, 8580 Bayreuth, FRG th th On September 6 and 7 1983 the second workshop on 'Azospirillum: Genetics, Physiology, Ecology' took place at the University of Bayreuth, west Germany, organized by the genetics department. There were about 50 participants, who came from German research institutions, from other European countries, from Israel, Egypt and North and South America. The first such workshop had taken place two years ago in Bayreuth too, hence the organizers could draw on the experiences then obtained. Azospirilla have, during the past ten years, found an ever increasing scientific interest, because first, these soil bacte ria carry the genetic information for binding molecular nitrogen from the air, and second, they live in close vicinity to the roots of several grain crops and forage grasses. By exploitation of these two properties, it is hoped to develop inoculation pro cedures that result in yield increases in agriculture, in par ticular in soils poor in nitrogen. The reports on the first afternoon focussed, as a result of the Bayreuth research interest, on the genetic basis and the regulation of nitrogen fixation in Azospirillum. Here, mainly by application of most modern gene technological approaches, considerable progress in the understanding of the situation has been made, and was documented in the corresponding reports.
