Announces Launch of New Book — Major Religions of the World — Revisited

Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 13, 2008

Robert Fawcett, the author has been writing about religion since the last ten years during which his initial writings took the form of a short and succinct essay that recorded his learning about the Anglican Communion and provided a snapshot of this world wide community. Robert is mindful of the fact that some common questions that keep cropping up are about the origins of the Church, the divide between the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Catholic Church and its reasons as well as its fallout. He explores all these in his collection of essays that has been aptly titled, “The Church, The Holy Catholic Church, How It came to be ….and other curiosities.”

The latest book release, Major Religions of the World Revisited deals with the ‘Other Curiosities’ so to speak and provides a brief capsule on the other religions like Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Christianity and Judaism. Being a Businessman turned Religious writer, Robert Fawcett’s perspective is that of the common man who seeks to analyze death, the transient nature of life on this earth and to identify the difference between the religions practiced by him and by those in other parts of the world.

Postulating on the attractive aspects of his recently released book Robert Fawcett says, “The reader does not have to read several books on this subject. It is a synopsis of each religion, and the reader can further research the subject at will.”


Robert Fawcett is a businessman turned author. After writing essays and papers on the subject of religion, he was encouraged to turn this study on the major religions into this book. The recent release is not intended to add the million scholarly books on the subject of comparative religion, instead it serves to give a peek into the mind of this rancher turned Businessman turned religious author who is willing to take readers on an inner journey on a path oft traveled by each one of us at some time or the other.

Inspirational Christian Author Answers Questions in New Book, ‘Does Jesus Speak to You?’

Ada, Okla. (PRWEB) April 23, 2008

Inspirational Christian author Donna L. Ferrier’s new book, “Does Jesus Speak to You?” answers a variety of questions regarding faith. Inquiries responded to include, “Does Jesus speak to us today?” “How does he speak?” and “Why is this important?”

Donna says the book challenges professed born-again Christians to examine their walks with God to see whether they really have been transformed by the Lord.

“Sadly,” Donna says, “I’ve discovered that many professed Christians, for example, can’t even spiritually discern God’s Word enough to apply it to their lives. This is more indicative of someone who isn’t a Christian, however, than of someone who is.” Throughout the book, Donna uses personal testimonies combined with scripture to discuss how Jesus reveals Himself.

Donna says that the key to understanding a Christian’s personal relationship with Jesus Christ lies in verses like Romans 12:2: “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is, his good, pleasing, and perfect will (NIV).”

“Unfortunately,” says Donna, “this transformation does not take place among so many who claim to know the Lord, and as a result, people who aren’t Christians look at professed believers getting drunk in bars or beating up their spouses and saying, ‘See, look, that person’s a Christian.’ Many false doctrines have been perpetuated because of that mindset.”

Donna believes that one of the greatest spiritual tragedies is that people who are searching for Christ ironically don’t want anything to do with Him because of all the false Christianity they mistake for the real thing. “Don’t get me wrong,” Donna says. “Everyone sins, and every Christian makes mistakes that disrupt our fellowship with the Lord and with one another. That’s why we as believers must be sure that our minds are being renewed on a daily basis. It’s the only way we can a) have the mind of Christ and b) let the world see what that really means.”

South Africa Author Publishes New Book

Pittsburgh, PA (Vocus) July 16, 2010

Long Walk to Enlightenment is the author’s attempt to understand the five Middle Eastern religions known as the “Religions of Revelation.” He focuses on Christianity and Islam. Two significant features of Middle Eastern religions are their credence to monotheism and their claims to having been revealed by God. The author makes an earnest attempt to understand how the “wisdom religions,” Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, engage in their search for the Infinite, Absolute Truth. He therefore identifies the major differences between these two groups of religions to make a significant contribution to the science of religion.

Book Review: on Christian Theology (challenges in Contemporary Theology)

Thought provoking book, matters of the heart for lay people, too

Take on this “On Christian Theology” if you choose to learn more of religious things, like matters of the heart and unities in God. The writer, Rowan Williams, says, “Theology needs to make connections, to search out and display unities…” This book by the Archbishop of Canterbury does that, even for this lay man who spent time pondering over ideas and directions in a manner that required study as well as reading.

There are large subjects addressed, like “The Judgement of the World,” where he addresses many like ideas: “The diffuse discontent that consumer pluralism can engender (although it largely contains and even utilizes it) yields itself readily to any program that dresses itself persuasively enough in moral rhetoric…” There’s a taste of the theologian’s writing.

You won’t find this on a popular reading list, but certainly the publisher Blackwell has found a steady seller with this compilation. The subtitle is “Challenges in contemporary Christianity,” and apt it is–of special interest to Christians in general and Episcopalians and Anglicans in particular. Afterall, the Archbishop is an Anglican. Here he remarks on the world and we as creatures in relation to God. Along the way he says what God is to us and creation. He calls this God’s freedom: “…God in creation means that God cannot make a reality that then needs to be actively governed, subdued, bent to the divine purpose away from its natural course. If God creates freely, God does not need the power of a sovereign: what is, is from God.” Sometimes the writing is clearer to me than others, which is my limitation. I understand, “what is, is from God.” Here’s an understandable statement, among many in an understandable book, from the chapter “On Being Creatures”: “Being creatures is learning humility, not as submission to an alien will, but as the acceptance of limit and death…” He says for that we need moral imagination. One gets the idea of the scope of his concerns and thinking, which are matters of the heart and living.

In the chapter, “Word and Spirit” (again larger subjects, but fascinating and engaging ones to the Christian reader, and others I think), the author says what is extraordinary, or ordinary about the Christian human being. For afterall, this man can speak of being a Christian and of the Christian human being: “We can recognize perhaps more clearly the dispressure of the figure of the crucified Messiah: we can accept more readily the breaking of certain kinds of sacral barrier, so that ‘Spirit’ ceases to be confined to the extraordinary but becomes a qualification of Christian human being.”

Some other chapters: “Triniity and Ontology,” “Between the Cherubim,” (“It will effectively be claiming tht what is vital to Christian discourse about the resurrection can be stated exclusively in terms of what happens to the minds and hearts of believers when proclamation is made that the victim of the crucifixion is the one through whom God continues to act and speak.”), “Nature and Sacrament,” “Sacraments of the New Society” (“…we are either bound together by being ‘seen’ by God as distant, as strangers, or bound together in a common assurance that we are received, affirmed, adopted.”

Today, in this season of Epiphany, in the winter of California where I live, I wanted to write a poem for this review (a kind of review in itself). Here it is:

Epiphany Brings News
by Peter Menkin

The Winter is young,
Trees bare against a grey sky.
Rain here.

Epiphany brings news
To me of the resurrection’s

Through this gift,
New creation,
In the cross-resurrection.

This Rowan Williams
Tells us these things;
Wait on the Christ-open heart.

This theologian I am reading
Shed enmity towards failures,

Enmity between people,
Shed this.
Then comes friendship with God.

Not matters of the mind,
Of the head,
But of the heart.

I think of Easter,
“the living of the believing life.”

Our trust is in Easter.

Many people have said that Rowan Williams writes of the crisis in our world, even the back cover notes proclaim such: “Overall, Williams presents a theological perspective acutely aware of the cultural and political crises of our time…” I would be remiss to leave that statement out of this review. For me, though, I found this a book of spirit and interesting writing opening windows and doors during this winter season into a light on the Trinity and man’s relation to God in Christ. This isn’t a book for a quick read, and I enjoyed the studying of text, even where I knew I was becoming only familiar with terms and people. As I’ve begun to become familiar with Rowan William’s writings, I think I chose a good book as part of that familiarization process.
