View: 751During times of disaster there are often other atrocities that slip through the cracks, unnoticed. On September 11th, 2001, a most cowardly and callous act was perpetrated on not only the United States but the entire free world. During this day thousands of innocent people lost their lives simply because they chose to live in a free society. We all know the story. What we don't know are the many stories within the story, stories and secrets that were forever lost when the Twin Towers crumpled to the ground on West Street in downtown New York City. These stories were buried with all those who carried their tales. There is one secret, one story, that did not perish that day. A story of greed and deceit, one that was superceded only by the terrorist acts themselves. From Beneath the Ashes is the first book to reveal the possibility of a "conspiracy theory" regarding the events of September 11th. While we lost thousands of lives and millions grieved, author Brian S. Marro suggests how some used this massive tragedy as a stepping stone to financial success in their heartless personal agendas.

View: 7555"Finding God Beneath The Ashes" is unique in style. Each chapter has a section of Bible verses in a poetic form, with occasional comments to encourage or explain, placed like stepping stones across a flowing mountain stream. A foundation for the book is laid by presenting quotes from the Founding Fathers, their acknowledging their need of God in giving birth to our nation. When all seemed lost, they called upon God! In our nation's first stepping stones they wrote the words, "We are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights!" This book is to help you to recover that God! In the dangers of our present time, in the aftermath of the ashes of 9/11, where and how are we to find God? It is written with the purpose of helping you to discover God by pondering Biblical themes and comments as helps to you along the way. The verses were collected much the way you would gather brightly colored leaves on a Fall day, freely picking and choosing leaves of different shapes, colors and sizes. The collection then is gathered into clusters about God to speak to your mind and heart. This Book is not intended to be a quick read. It's like a walk in the woods. It's sitting on a ledge, looking across a great canyon. In places, it is a trip down the rapids. It's a place where you can argue with God about what is written, a place to share your sorrow or loss, where you can cry out, "why?" It is a place where you can find quiet pastures along a gently flowing stream, or safety through the valleys of the shadows of death. It's designed to help you find the peace of God. This book begins with the silence of God before time or space through His mighty words and deeds in history. From beginning to end it covers the major themes: God in the chaos of the beginning, His giving of safe boundaries for living, the strong things God stands for like love and justice. The book introduces you to the names of God which will show you what He is really like, what we are to call Him His name introduces Him to us and the wonder of who He is. We come to Jesus as our Friend. Like the fireman at 9/11 He gave His life in the smoke and ashes to save us. In Jesus we see God come down to earth. The ending of the book gives lines from the poetry of The Psalms with indicated places to pause and be alone with God and with your own thoughts without comments by the writer. What else can you expect from within these pages? You can expect explanations on how the Bible is put together, illustrations and examples from the lives of people who are living their faith with others, how to live out the model of Jesus through friendship with others. The Book can be used over and over again, a chapter at a time a section now and then. It can be used with others in groups or with just two or three together. It's a book designed for you, a place to find God in the dangers, brokenness, in the joys and in the ashes of living."

Author: Dr. Hooshang Guilak
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
Category: Political Science
View: 4745The author painstakingly analyses the relation of the two countries. He illustrates the great achievement of those Americans who came to Iran without any government affi liation. They accomplished their goal with self sacrifi ces and devotion. Many of them gave their lives for what they believed, thus creating tremendous respect for the Americans. Vis--vis to the individuals, he points out the failure of the United States government almost, in every respect. He exemplifi es the shortcomings of most of the American representatives in Iran. He demonstrates that the majority of them were totally unaware of the culture and the way of life in Iran, making them severely handicapped. He points out to the utmost reliance placed by the American administration to the British opinions and guidance which they followed blindly, causing irreparable damage to the integrity of the United States, not only in Iran but in the whole Middle East.
