Book Short Summary:

Since the invention of pen and paper, four books have been studied and analyzed more than all others: the Torah, the Gospel, the Qur'an, and Sahih Al-Bukhari. While there have been numerous translations of the first three, there has never been a complete translation of Sahih Al-Bukhari—due to its immense size and utter complexity—until now. After more than ten years of continuous research and translation by multiple layers of linguists, the Arabic Virtual Translation Center is pleased to announce the publication of the first-ever complete English translation of Sahih Al-Bukhari with full sanad and commentary. This is a full and accurate translation of Sahih Al-Bukhari from cover to cover with the addition of explanatory notes, a glossary of every term, and biographies of all characters. Sahih Al-Bukhari is the biggest collection of authentic hadiths. It lays the foundation of Islam and encompasses all the sharia laws. It details the building blocks of the religion and those who constructed them from the Prophet to the Sahabah to the Tabi'un and everyone who influenced them. It is a well-organized labyrinth of Islamic history that describes every precept and explains it thoroughly. Virtually all books about Islam, from those taught in kindergarten to the ones lectured at Azhar University, are interpretations of Sahih Al-Bukhari. Now, with this encyclopedia in hand, we have the opportunity not to rely solely on the works of shady characters, revisionists, or those with ulterior motives. We can retrieve information from its original source in raw format, connect all the dots, and draw our own conclusions. The entire encyclopedia is in full color and is easy to read and understand. It is recommended that it be viewed on a color monitor to easily distinguish between the different features. This digital version has links to every entry and similar hadiths to facilitate the understanding of each story in full. The encyclopedia is under constant review and is continuously revised and updated. Each update is assigned a distinct version number. It is only once in a generation that a must-read encyclopedia of this magnitude comes to life, and all of us can benefit from it. Benefit from it in this life and the life to come.

Book Short Summary:

Is there a book of the Bible more often discussed and yet less understood than the Book of Revelation? The "seven seals." The "dragon." The "beast." The "sea of glass." The fantastic imagery found in the Book of Revelation has long captivated Christians but remains mysterious to many. In the midst of so much discussion about the end times, what does Revelation teach us about living in the present moment, with our eyes focused on the heavenly Jerusalem? Michael Barber's Coming Soon explores these questions by taking a detailed look at Revelation and its rich tapestry of prophecy, history, and biblical allusion. Barber explores the profound link between the Mass celebrated here on earth and the eternal reality of heaven, demonstrating that the Apocalypse reveals truth that has practical implications for today and points to a firm hope in tomorrow. Coming Soon is a verse-by-verse commentary on the Book of Revelation using the Revised Standard Version: Catholic Edition of the Bible. Barber provides a Catholic interpretation, which sees the liturgical background of this book of Scripture-a perspective missing in many Protestant commentaries.

Book Short Summary:

The Quran is that Single Heavenly Message that underwent so many passages through the evolution of mankind under the Guidance of Allah, the Lord of the universe to appear as the chosen, simplified and perfected code of conduct in the hands of Muhammad Rasulullah. Examining its Sciences convinces one of its Miraculous Nature, its conformity and confirmation of the Torah. It explains avidly that man has the faculty of discrimination, as a result of his ability to develop, grow, progress and to direct independently his own way of living. The base of this is in the Knowledge the Lord of the universe taught him. Harmony and Peace are comprehensive terms enveloping all that man needs for his survival in this world. The objective of examining the Sciences of the holy Quran is to find a safe passage and a way of living, in perfect harmony and peace, between mankind, his environment and his Creator. Secondly it enables one to understand and realize what will happen to one if he dies. Those reading the Scriptures have come across the Promise of Allah for reward and punishment in this earthly world and in the Hereafter. The holy Quran, the last of such Scriptures teaches the same. Allah summed up this in the holy Quran 53:38-41, That no burdened person (with sins) shall bear the burden (sins) of another. And that man can have nothing but what he does (good or bad). And that his deeds will be seen. The he will be recompensed with a full and the best recompense.

Is it possible that punishment and judgment come as the consequences of our own doing?

Next to the Qur'an, Islam’s holiest text is qudsi hadith. Based on this premise, Islamic scholars have always been fascinated with the collection and study of this type of hadith.

Book Short Summary:

A Road to Christianity, Islam and Judaism contains brief overviews of the three major religions in the world today. They are the Islamic religion, the Judaic religion, and the Christian religion. These overviews, with supporting biblical and Quranic verses, are related in the form of roads with their twists, turns, ruts, and potholes. Many roads or overviews are unknown or learned based on the learners heritage (e.g., original sin). It would take a person a lifetime to research all the minutiae connected with the history, tenets, beliefs, congregations, sects, churches, mosques, synagogues, and people of the three major religions. The three religions have many differences, as well as many similarities. All three religions believe in the same god/creator and Old Testament characters, except by different names. All three religions believe in resurrections, the afterlife, Adam and Eve, and messengers.

Book Short Summary:

'Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful one who taught by the pen, who taught man what he did not know.' The Qur'an, believed by Muslims to be the word of God, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad 1400 years ago. It is the supreme authority in Islam and the living source of all Islamic teaching; it is a sacred text and a book of guidance, that sets out the creed, rituals, ethics, and laws of the Islamic religion. It has been one of the most influential books in the history of literature. Recognized as the greatest literary masterpiece in Arabic, it has nevertheless remained difficult to understand in its English translations. This new translation is written in a contemporary idiom that remains faithful to the original, making it easy to read while retaining its powers of eloquence. Archaisms and cryptic language are avoided, and the Arabic meaning preserved by respecting the context of the discourse. The message of the Qur'an was directly addressed to all people regardless of class, gender, or age, and this translation is equally accessible to everyone. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Book Short Summary:

The book emanates from an extensive study of the Holy Bible which lasted for 4 years. Contemplating upon the Old and the New Testament, the flawless message of Jesus Christ upon Resurrection and Immortality is analyzed in the pages of this book, which draws its bread, breath and blood entirely from the Christian tradition. Each phase from Jesus' life -beginning from all His ancestors who have prepared the path for His arrival through their prophecies, His immaculate birth, His first years of life, His baptism, His teachings, His crucifixion and ultimately reaching His resurrection, helps us to understand the grandeur and the depth of His Ultimate vocation for Immortalization and Eternal Life. The main purpose of this book is to inspire and empower all those practitioners who crave to experience the manifestation of the Holy Spirit even at the lowest levels of gross physicality. Jesus has manifested throughout His life, simultaneously, the Perfect God and the Perfect Human. With His resurrection He triumphs over death, He annihilates the body of death as ontological reality, He liberates humankind from mortality. This book is addressed to all those mortal children of Adam who are thirsty to tread the path of Immortality continuing the lineage of Lord Jesus.

Book Short Summary:

“The articles and columns in The Scandal of the Century demonstrate that his forthright, lightly ironical voice just seemed to be there, right from the start . . . He’s among those rare great fiction writers whose ancillary work is almost always worth finding . . . He had a way of connecting the souls in all his writing, fiction and nonfiction, to the melancholy static of the universe.” --Dwight Garner, The New York Times From one of the titans of twentieth-century literature, collected here for the first time: a selection of his journalism from the late 1940s to the mid-1980s--work that he considered even more important to his legacy than his universally acclaimed works of fiction. "I don't want to be remembered for One Hundred Years of Solitude or for the Nobel Prize but rather for my journalism," Gabriel García Márquez said in the final years of his life. And while some of his journalistic writings have been made available over the years, this is the first volume to gather a representative selection from across the first four decades of his career--years during which he worked as a full-time, often muckraking, and controversial journalist, even as he penned the fiction that would bring him the Nobel Prize in 1982. Here are the first pieces he wrote while working for newspapers in the coastal Colombian cities of Cartagena and Barranquilla . . . his longer, more fictionlike reportage from Paris and Rome . . . his monthly columns for Spain's El País. And while all the work points in style, wit, depth, and passion to his fiction, these fifty pieces are, more than anything, a revelation of the writer working at the profession he believed to be "the best in the world."

With a background in the physical sciences, Dr. Eric Skousen has produced a stunning account of the creation of the earth from the findings of earth scientists and the teachings of the Lord’s prophets.

What about evolution, fossils, dinosaurs and cave men? Well-supported answers are here. For those who have been challenged to explain the earth’s creation from an LDS viewpoint, this book will be helpful and enlightening. And for those who enjoy contemplating both the discoveries of science and the revelations of God, this book will be extremely stimulating and thought-provoking. Readers have commented: Dan from Canada: “This book has enlightened my mind and given me the wonderful opportunity to see the intermeshing between science and our religion.” Paul from Texas: “Well-supported viewpoint and thought-provoking reading.... I appreciate Brother Skousen’s heavy usage of scriptural references and quotes from trustworthy Church leaders.” Kristy from Utah: “Answered a lot of questions I had from my geology classes and gave me a deeper appreciation for this awesome planet we live on and the creator of it.” Kelly from California: “This book explained so much about issues that had previously confused or bothered me.” Jerome from Georgia: “Life altering, made me a better person.... If you really want to understand the ‘Big Picture’ then this book is a must read.” Dave from Washington: “One unexpected blessing received from reading this book was an enhanced Temple worship experience.” Ed from Iowa: “If you are LDS, this will open your eyes to things that are incredible and you will not look at the world we live in in the same way again.” Devon: “Scholarly material well presented for the layman.” This eBook includes the original index, illustrations, footnotes, table of contents and page numbering from the printed format.

Qur'an of the Oppressed

  • Pdf File: qur-an-of-the-oppressed.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This study analyses the commentaries of four Muslim intellectuals who have turned to scripture as a liberating text to confront an array of problems, from patriarchy, racism, and empire to poverty and interreligious communal violence. Shadaab Rahemtulla considers the exegeses of the South African Farid Esack (b. 1956), the Indian Asghar Ali Engineer (1939-2013), the African American Amina Wadud (b. 1952), and the Pakistani American Asma Barlas (b. 1950). Rahemtulla examines how these intellectuals have been able to expound this seventh-century Arabian text in a socially liberating way, addressing their own lived realities of oppression, and thus contexts that are worlds removed from that of the text's immediate audience. Through a close reading of their works, he underlines the importance of both the ethico-social content of the Qur'an and their usage of new and innovative reading practices. This work provides a rich analysis of the thought-ways of specific Muslim intellectuals, thereby substantiating a broadly framed school of thought. Rahemtulla draws out their specific and general importance without displaying an uncritical sympathy. He sheds light on the impact of modern exegetical commentary which is more self-consciously concerned with historical context and present realities. In a mutually reinforcing way, this work thus illuminates both the role of agency and hermeneutical approaches in modern Islamic thought.

Book Short Summary:

This book explores some of Noah's trial as he builds the ark,survives the Great Flood, and restarts mankind in Sumeria. Following Noah's descendants into Iraq and the ill-fated Tower of Babylon, God then leads a group of travelers, who became known as the Jaredites, into the biblical Promised Land of Americas. Here, God warns them that should they ever cease their worship of him, they would be forever wiped off the face of the land. They fulfill God's promise to them that they are destined to become the greatest civilization, which lasted about 2,530 years but is totally ignored by ologists. As a result of what became known to history as Noah's Flood, the Jaredites had all of five virgin and completely empty continents and most of a sixth to colonize, as well as many other lands in between. Ultimately, the Jaredites did eventually fall away from their worship of God and, as a result, erased themselves form history through an incredibly vicious civil war.

  • Pdf File: interconnecting-music-and-the-literary-word.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Dealing with the interconnections between music and the written word, this volume brings into focus an updated range of analytical and interpretative approaches which transcend the domain of formalist paradigms and the purist assumption of music’s non-referentiality. Grouped into three thematic sections, these fifteen essays by Italian, British and American scholars shed light on a phenomenological network embracing different historical, socio-cultural and genre contexts and a variety of theoretical concepts, such as intermediality, the soundscape notion, and musicalisation. At one end of the spectrum, music emerges as a driving cultural force, an agent cooperating with signifying and communication processes and an element functionally woven into the discursive fabric of the literary work. The authors also provide case studies of the fruitful musico-literary dialogue by taking into account the seminal role of composers, singer-songwriters, and performers. From another standpoint, the music-in-literature and literature-in-music dynamics are explored through the syntax of hybridisations, transcoding experiments, and iconic analogies.

Book Short Summary:

Engagement with the Muslim world and Muslim people is inevitable for Christians. After all, Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the United States. But what does the Qur'an really say about things like Jesus, war, and non-Muslims? What does the Bible say on these matters? If Christians are to engage in informed, loving conversation with their Muslim neighbors, they need to be equipped with more than the often-specious talking points they glean from the news or email forwards. Comparing the Qur'an and the Bible offers readers an unprecedented collection of Scriptures and doctrines of both faiths presented side by side for easy study and comparison, covering such key issues as Jesus Abraham creation angels/jinn jihad the fall of humankind predestination ransom for sin/sacrifice grace rebirth God/Allah women marriage and divorce homosexuality suicide resurrection judgment Paradise prayer A brief explanation of each passage in the Qur'an and the Bible is given, as well as biblical answers to Islamic teaching. The book also motivates readers to have hearts for Muslims and seek to bring them to Christ, offering "door openers" to sharing the Good News. This indispensible collection will be treasured by anyone seeking to understand and engage their Muslim neighbors.

Book Short Summary:

A RUSA 2007 Outstanding Reference Title The Qur'an is the source of inspiration for one of the world's major religions, followed today by over a billion people. It plays a central role in Islam and ever since it appeared fourteen hundred years ago has been the subject of intense debate. Some of this has been carried out by Muslims and some by those hostile or indifferent to Islam, producing a very wide range of views. Authored by forty-three international experts, the objective of The Qur'an: An Encyclopedia is to present this diversity of thought, approach and school without priority, in order to give a strong appreciation of the range of response that the text has provoked throughout its history and providing students and researchers with a powerful one-volume resource covering all aspects of the text and its reception. Islam and the Qur'an are much in the news today and there is a public debate going on in which things are said about the Qur'an without much knowledge or understanding of the book. Every effort has been made to help the reader use the Encyclopedia as an investigative tool in Quranic studies. The volume assumes no previous knowledge of the Qur'an, Islam or Arabic. Technical terms are explained in the text itself and the style of each entry is designed to be as self-contained as possible. Entries are cross-referenced and many include a brief bibliography. At the end of the work there is a substantial annotated bibliography providing a detailed guide to the most significant books, journals and articles in Qur'anic Studies. There is a full index. The readership will include those seeking basic information on the Qur'an, however the substantial number of longer entries means that it will also be used by specialists.

Book Short Summary:

The Heavenly Treason is a book that explains about how the author, in his years of adolescence, gave his free will back to God, and through his faith and with the acceptance from the Divine, he has been touched by these forces that are surrounding us, and these have begun to influence his life. Through God's true words written in the Bible over two thousand plus years, we can find reassurance of His true work from astronomy and archaeology since the beginning of creation. We will also learn about God and the creation of the sons of the Divine Fire, which are the ones that will carry God's will throughout the entire creation since the beginning of time, and where with great detail on the second day of creation one Prince of the Divine Presence starts to convince one-third of the heavenly Hosts to separate from the Creator. This Prince creates the greatest celestial war, from which he becomes the greatest celestial adversary called Satan until the end of time.
