When Peter Baldwin Panagore died on the side of a mountain, his life was forever changed. Decades later, the intense spiritual journey continues, with a story that combines the thrills of a wilderness adventure with the awe-inspiring elements of a paranormal novel. In March of 1980, college senior Peter Panagore went ice climbing on the world-famous Lower Weeping Wall, along the Ice Fields Parkway in Alberta, Canada. His climbing partner was an experienced ice climber, but Panagore was a novice. On their descent, they became trapped on the side of the mountain. As the sun set, he was overcome by exhaustion and hypothermia. He died on the side of that mountain. And in those minutes on the other side, he experienced hell, forgiveness, and unconditional love. Heaven was beautiful. Panagore's death experience changed his life and resulted in an intense spiritual journey that has continued for decades. It impelled him to pursue a master's degree at Yale Divinity School, focusing on systematic theology and Christian mysticism. His educational background coupled with 30 years of meditative practice and 20 years of professional work with the dying and grieving has given him unique insight, language, and perspective on heaven, God, death, life, love, beauty, and hope. I have told my story to audiences large and small for a decade now.... My story touches people's hearts; every time I tell it the audience is gripped and silent.... This book is about hope. It is meant to give real hope to the dying, hope to the fearful, hope to the hopeless, hope to the grieving.--from the book

This book provides an insight into the role of writing and literacy in the church founded by the South African prophet Isaiah Shembe, in 1910. The editor and tanslator provides a substantial, contextualising introduction which includes discussion of the church's history and its position in contemporary South Africa, and weaves in discussion of the topics of literacy and modernity. The book then moves to the three documents, presented in their language of composition, Zulu, and in an English translation. The three books, each from Shembe's Nazareth Baptist Church, provide the reader with an insight into the growth and organisation of one of southern Africa's most influential African Churches, and into its use and interpretation of the Bible. Central to the writings is the complex presence of Shembe, both through his own words in the first book and, in the second book, through the memory of Meshack Hadebe, a member of the church in the 1920's and 1930's. The extracts in the third book provide a glimpse of the church's hymnal and the unique religious poetry of the hymns, authored by Shembe. The first and second books are a valuable addition to the genres of biography and autobiography of Black Africans in the early decades of the twentieth century. The dual language text is useful for scholars of African languages.

Please—for Jesus’ sake, stop neglecting the Bible, and get it inside you! We are under demonic attack on an unparalleled scale. Jesus sees your pain and wants to rescue you from darkness, just as he rescued Grace George. It may seem impossible, but with God, nothing is impossible. This first volume of “Caught up to Heaven over 320 times” contains a number of testimonies, revelations, dreams, and songs given to Grace by Jesus. Many of the victories she saw in heaven have already happened on earth, including raising the dead to life. Her ministry is a reflection of Luke 4:19: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free.” Remember John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” This is what the Word of God says, and every word in the Scriptures is true.

Using the Apostles’ Creed as the “primary text” this book explores what we believe as Christians and how those beliefs are relevant today. The author’s goal is to help pastors educate and transform members of their congregations. He examines the Creed phrase by phrase in brief sections suitable for congregational study or for emailing to the congregation. For each phrase in the Creed, a "deeper reflection" provides material for preaching a 13-sermon series or for further congregatonal study. A detailed appendix includes recommendations of hymns and songs related to each phrase in the Creed; the suggestions are keyed to several hymnals and songbooks.

Waking Up in Heaven tells the remarkable story of a woman, plagued with guilt and skepticism, dramatically changed by the nine minutes she spent in heaven. For most of her life, Crystal McVea was a skeptic whose history of abuse and bad choices made her feel beyond the reach of God. She questioned if God was even real. Then came 10 December 2009 and the moment that changed everything. For nine minutes that night, Crystal went into full respiratory arrest. She was unconscious and unable to breathe on her own, unaware of the crisis happening around her as the hospital staff rushed to save her life. Crystal doesn’t remember the trauma or losing consciousness; she just remembers waking up in heaven, next to God. Crystal discusses some of the extraordinary things she encountered in heaven, including the beautiful gates of heaven, our guardian angels and a lifealtering vision of her younger self. Waking Up in Heaven invites readers to witness the relentless pursuit of God in a life that was broken and seemingly beyond hope, an awe-inspiring account of love, forgiveness and redemption and the healing power of God’s presence.
