Excerpt from The Story of Redemption: From Paradise Lost to Paradise Restored The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Rom.6 : 23.Redemption, in a Scripture sense, and as contemplated in this volume, is the giving of eternal life to a race of beings justly under sentence of eternal death. "By one man Adam sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned." Chapter 5:12. Therefore all are by nature under condemnation of death. So also redemption has been offered to every one: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16. But this Gift for man's redemption does not inure to the individual without an unqualified acceptance, on plainly specified terms. There must be belief in the Son. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and "He that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." Verse 36. Another condition is, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1 :9. Then our short existence or probation in this world is a matter of life or death to all eternity. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Even as theologians and others have become more critical of classic theories of atonement, Brondos maintains, biblical scholars have continued to understand Paul's soteriology based on the language and categories of a thousand years later. In this vital volume he draws the theological consequences of the "new perspective" on Paul for our understanding of the meaning and efficacy of Jesus'' death. Paul, says Brondos, understood Jesus' death primarily as the consequence of his mission of serving as God's instrument to bring about the awaited redemption of Israel, in which Gentiles throughout the world would also be included. For Paul, Jesus' death is salvific, not because it satisfies some necessary condition for human salvation as most doctrines of the atonement have traditionally maintained, nor because it effects some change in the situation of human beings or the world in general, but because God responded to Jesus' faithfulness unto death by raising him, ensuring that all the divine promises of salvation would be fulfilled through him. Jesus' death forms part of an overarching story culminating in the redemption of Israel and the world; it is this story, and in particular what precedes and follows Jesus' death on the cross, which makes that death redemptive for Paul.

Excerpt from The Story of the Ages From Creation to Redemption: Key to Historic and Prophetic Diagram of the World, and God's Plan of Salvation for Law Breakers The Story of the Ages, with the accompanying Historic and Prophetic Diagram of the World, treats of subjects that reach back before sin entered any part of the creation of God. Then follows briefly the history of the rebellion and fall of Satan in heaven; the disobedience of our first parents in Eden; and the course of sin down through the ages to the end of this world, when sin and sinners will be destroyed, the righteous redeemed, and the earth again made new. While each chapter is complete in itself, each is also closely connected with the one before it, and with the one following it, thus making an unbroken chain, which, link by link, and chap ter by chapter, tells the story of creation, the plan of salvation, and the joys of redemption. In writing this work, the author has confined his evidence to the Word of God, as found in the Bible; to history, which records the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, and to true science, which is in harmony with God and nature.

Excerpt from Feathers With Yellow Gold: The Story of Redemption Home, Toronto, Canada Nothing can'be more typical of these two ancestral streams and of her dual personality than the education of that daughter. As a matter of course she was sent to Woodstock College, the single centre of Baptist education in the province. There she followed the ordinary academic curriculum, which savored largely of the religious views of its founders, and accepted many of the principles on which it was based. From Woodstock as a matter of course she was entered at a private school, from which she was graduated in music. If she had other ambitions after her graduation, they were overshadowed by her marriage, in 1879, to Winford York, an Ontario physician. This interruption of her educational career, however, was Of short duration for her husband died in the following year, and, in 1881, she became a student at the New England Conservatory of Music.

It is the eighth century BC. No Hebrew will purposely venture into the Assyrian Empire, whose practice of barbarous slaughter casts a shadow of fear over all of Israel. But God calls Jonah, an Israelite prophet, to cry repentance to the evil empire's capital--the great and terrible city of Nineveh. Fearing the Assyrians and doubting the wisdom of the divine call, Jonah flees in the opposite direction. But in a series of miracles, God gives Jonah a second chance to obey. Journey with Jonah in a wealth-laden ship of Tarshish, hear his prayers inside the belly of a great fish, witness his struggles working in a desert caravan, and feel his terror as he finally arrives in Nineveh. And while Jonah does eventually preach in the great city, the prophet still has some lessons to learn...

Michael Cosgrove had a beautiful family, a successful career, and a lovely Southern California home overlooking the Pacific Ocean. At the age sixty, he decided to leave that all behind to sail around the world. In spite of his romanticized vision of rugged individualism and salty tales to share with his grandchildren, Cosgrove quickly realizes that sailing around the world isn’t going to be as easy as he’d imagined. From a psychotic crewmate, sleep deprivation, and mental breakdowns, to stormy weather and hallucinations, Cosgrove rides the waves, holding on as best he can to his dream of “doing something grand.” Alone, and thousands of miles away from everyone and everything he loves, he is forced to ask himself one question: what in God’s name am I doing here? In his attempt to avoid the inevitable (growing old, weak, frail), Cosgrove runs amok. He breaks his budget to outfit the boat and then refuses to read the manuals. He enters unfamiliar harbors in the dead of night, hires a violent first mate, and sails headlong into ferocious storms. In the midst of his adventures, he longs for the simpler days when his four daughters were still children, when his first marriage was still intact, and when his future still seemed bright and expansive. Though driven by scenes of sheer terror, absurd folly, and deep inner searching, Cosgrove keeps his sense of humor throughout his harrowing journey. Imperfect Passage is the story of one man’s perseverance against Father Time and Mother Nature, proving that with enough will, one can, in his or her own way, conquer the unconquerable. Michael Cosgrove will be donating a portion of his profits to the Navy Special Warfare Family Foundation.
