This book is a study of the parables unique to the Third Gospel, aiming in particular to establish a link between Luke's choice of these parables and his overall purpose in writing. In comparison to the synoptic kingdom parables, one distinguishing feature of the Lukan parables is their more personal portrait of the character and the nature of God himself. Luke's desire is to demonstrate to his readers, whoever they are, that in Christianity the realization of the Jewish hope has occurred. The parables promote this idea by offering both continuity (OT) and contrast (contemporary Judaism) in their portrait of God. Thus, as well as operating in a parenetic sense, the parables also help to legitimize Luke's argument regarding fulfilment.

'Content analysis'-which is a computer-assisted form of textual analysis-is used to examine divine activity in six prophetic texts, comparing God's activity to that of humans. In this methodologically innovative study, the author concludes, in the light of quantitative data, that God is harsher to non-Israelites than to Israelites in all the texts, and much kinder to Israelites in Joel than in the typical prophet. God and humans are involved in much the same kinds of physical and mental processes, but to considerably different degrees. Griffin argues persuasively that the God of the prophets is not the 'wholly other' of some theologies, but neither do his actions follow exactly the human pattern.

We all have our own beliefs on the various theories of mankinds origin and most of us have chosen one theory over the other but what if we didn’t have to choose? What if there was a way to reconcile the many different ideas of creation, evolution, and the history of mankind? What if everyone was right (kind of)?

The 5,000 years old ancient wisdom of Bhagavad Gita comprising of 700 verses was given by God-incarnate Sri Krishna many centuries before the emergence of Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism and other religions. Gita explains the characteristics of body and soul, Moksha, Nirvana, Self-realization and Karma. Everything said in Bhagavad Gita is of universal nature and applies to all human beings, irrespective of ones caste, religion, age, gender or beliefs. Great spiritual texts like Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads do not belong to one particular culture only; but they belong to the whole world. Every human being has this fundamental question, as to why I am here on this earth? What is the purpose of my life? Is my destiny inextricably linked with the will of God? An in depth study of Gita verses provides the answers to these questions. Dr. Arogyaswami Paulraj, Professor Emeritus, Stanford University, United States wrote, This book is a commendable work of illuminating the universal values of Bhagavad Gita with illustrations of interesting spiritual stories. An absorbing book and a great read, RS Vasan, Director Chennai Centre for Asia Studies wrote in a review, Ajay Gupta has brought out the profound and eternal teaching of Bhagavad Gita as a thoroughly enjoyable book. A must read book of surpassing excellence for both young and old.

Monstrous beasts, lost worlds, vanished civilizations, Amazon warriors, even Atlantis and Noahs ark figure in this wondrous and rare book. Hard to find in print before now, this obscure 1952 work is an artifact itself, of the postwar fascination with all things mysterious, from flying saucers to ancient astronauts to the third eye. In this wildly entertainingand more than a little bit preposterousdocument, Wilkins takes us from mountain jungles to unexplored swamps on a search for the hidden secrets of old South America. Seekers after the arcane and fans of the paranormal will delight in this odd and extraordinary volume. British journalist and historian HAROLD T. WILKINS (18911960) is also the author of Mysteries of Ancient South America (1945) and Mysteries of Time and Space (1958).
