This book is a collection of 99 sohbets or speeches delivered by the Sheikh of the Sufi Order Naqshbandi, Mawlana Sheikh Nazim al-Haqqani ar Rabbani . Several themes are discussed, such as Islam, love, truth, spirituality, etc. Only by the light of the Spiritual Path and the mystic way can the Truth be discovered. In order for one to truly witness the Perfection of the Absolute, one must see with one's inner being, which perceives the whole of Reality. This witnessing happens when one becomes perfect, losing one's (partial) existence in the Whole. If the Whole is likened to the Ocean, and the part to a drop, the sufi says that witnessing the Ocean with the eye of a drop is impossible. However, when the drop becomes one with the Ocean, it sees the Ocean with the eye of the Ocean .
We've made following Jesus far too complex. We don't know what to do with all the things in the Bible that seem necessary, so we make them into a to-do list: love others, forgive those who hurt you, have joy, be patient, stay faithful, give to the hurting, serve in your church, pray without ceasing, confess your sins, and on and on. These are all great things, but is a checklist really what Jesus intended when he said, "Follow me"? More than two thousand years ago, the prophet Micah implored Israel to return to its true calling: "Act justly, love mercy, walk humbly with your God." Could this plainspoken Bible verse not only sum up how we should live today but breathe a fresh purpose into our souls? In this practical and freeing book, pastor Rusty George shares the simplicity of what God desires from us. Living a faithful life should not be a chore, and George teaches how to put away our checklists and walk humbly according to God's will for our lives.
Discovering the Relationship Between God's Mercy and Our Pain
Author: Elisabeth Elliot
Publisher: Gospel Light Publications
Must we stumble through sorrow and tragedy witout understanding or is there a lighted way-a path-through suffering? Elisabeth Elliot plots the treacherous passage through pain, grief and loss a journey most of us will make many times in our life. Through it all, she says there is only one reliable path, and if you walk it, you will see the transformation of all your losses, heartbreaks and tragedies into something strong and purposeful. In this powerful moving book, Elisabeth Elliot does not hesitate to ask hard questions to examine tenderly the hurts we suffer and to explore boldy the nature of God whose sovereign care for us is so intimate and perfect that he confounds our finite understanding. "A Path through Suffering" is a book for anyone searching for faith, comfort and assurance.
