  3. Origins --S

    Origins --S by Gibson, L James (2012)

    $12.00  Condition: A-

    WARNING!

    When people see this book's title, they probably think the book is the story of God's creation of this world and all the creatures that live on it, including us human beings.

    That's true, but it doesn't go far enough. Not by a long shot!

    This book focuses on the first three chapters of Genesis. The author says that all the rest of the Bible finds its meaning in the context these chapters provide. In other words, we don't really know the Bible until we've begun to hear what these chapters are saying. To understand God, ourselves, and our world, we must understand these chapters. They explain not only how we came to exist but why.

    Further, according to the author, it's in the Creation story that "we find the meaning of marriage and family, of responsibility and work, and of Sabbath rest." And, in fact, "it is what Genesis 3 tells us about the Fall that enables us to understand our need of a Savior and the reason for our dependence on God's grace. The gospel story is grounded in the events of Genesis 1–3.

  5. Ecclesiastes, All is Vanity --S

    Ecclesiastes, All is Vanity --S by Doukhan, Jacques B. (2006)

    $16.50  Condition: A-

    "All is vanity" - that's right, everything!
    Solomon, an old king, approaches his death haunted by his past. When first on the throne, he had asked for wisdom. He was granted that and much more. But looking back over his life in an effort to pass on what he has learned to his successor, Solomon finds his journey riddled with contradictions.
    Author Jacques B. Doukhan, an Adventist scholar of Jewish heritage, identifies contradiction as a symptom of our human condition. "Ecclesiastes affirms the value of work, wisdom, life and happiness. But all these good values - including religion and even righteousness - contain the potential of corruption and evil."
    Twenty-first-century Christians may recognize in Solomon's musings that " 'all' times are given by God: not only the good times, but also the bad; no only the times of life, but the times of death."
    -Explains the background of Solomon's Ecclesiastes in order to better understand its many and often disturbing contradiction.
    -Identifies Ecclesiastes with end-time living where, more and more, we live an a world beyond human control - where "all is vanity."

He has made large use of the actual words of the Assyrian writers themselves, thereby bringing to the reader something of the spirit of Assyria. This has meant the incorporation of a goodly portion of the Assyrian literature either in translation or paraphrase
