Summary

Summary

Errettung, Erlösung, Versöhnung" gibt uns ein hellstes Licht für das wohl bedeutungsvollste Thema des zeitlichen und ewigen Lebens: Die Erlösung! Über kaum ein Anderes herrscht in den Kirchen soviel Kontroverse, Meinungsvielfalt und Uneinigkeit, wie gerade über dieses Fundamentalste. Wir erhalten hier vom wiedergekommenen Herrn JESUS, Der das Wort Gottes oder die ewige Wahrheit Selbst ist, verständlichste Aufklärungen über die ewige Verdammnis" und was mit den Seelen geschieht, was das jüngste Gericht", der jüngste Tag" und die Auferstehung des Fleisches" in Wahrheit sind, was die Erlösung ist, ob es eine All-Versöhnung gibt, was die Mission Jesu war und was Gerechtigkeit" bedeutet.Zur Buchreihe:Die großen Kirchenirrtümer des 21. Jahrhunderts" stellt eine thematisierte Zusammenstellung aus den großen und kleineren Neuoffenbarungen Christi zu wichtigen Kirchenfragen dar.Viele Inhalte der Bibel wurden mit den Jahren durch im Geist unerweckte Theologen verändert und falsch ausgelegt, so dass es den Gläubigen unserer Zeit immer schwerer fallen muss, den inneren Sinn des Wortes Gottes zu erfassen und selbst Erleuchtung zu erfahren. Wie zu allen Zeiten der Menschheitsgeschichte, leitet der Herr gerade dann Sein reines Wort zur Erde herab, wenn Finsternis und Wirrnisse am größten sind. Wir leben inmitten der verheißenen Zeit der Wiederkunft Christi, doch darunter, wie auch unter dem gesamten Glaubensleben, stellt sich der moderne Mensch heute etwas anderes vor als es in Wahrheit ist und sein soll. Viel zu materiell sind die Begriffe vom Dasein geworden, als dass ein geistiges Verständnis vom Leben überhaupt noch möglich wäre. Bildung und Erkenntnis sind schon die Grundpfeiler des zeitlichen Lebens. Der Herr möchte in uns, durch die Erkenntnis der Wahrheit des Lebens, Seinen Geist erwecken und unsere Gemüter ausbilden zur Liebe und damit zum ewigen Leben unserer Seelen. Der Glaube an das Wort Christi und dessen Befolgung bilden dafür die Grundlage, jetzt und in Ewigkeit. Gott Selbst, in Seiner Wiederkunft als der Christus, dem Geist der Wahrheit aus Seinem Ur-Lebenszentrum der Liebe, lehrt uns hier persönlich in Seinem wiedergekommen Wort.


Summary

As a child, he lived in Minnesota, Los Angeles, and Grand Island, Nebraska, finally settling in Fair Oaks, California when he was eight. In 1984, he received a full scholarship to run track and field for the University of Notre Dame.

Sparks wrote one of his best-known stories, The Notebook, over a period of six months at age 28. It was published in 1996 and spent 56 weeks on the New York Times hardcover best-seller list followed by another 54 weeks on the paperback list. Sparks has had a string of New York Times bestsellers including: A Walk to Remember, Message in a Bottle, The Rescue, A Bend in the Road, Nights in Rodanthe, The Guardian, The Wedding, True Believer and its sequel, At First Sight, Dear John, The Choice, The Last Song, Safe Haven, The Best of Me, See Me, The Longest Ride, and Two by Two.

Booklist Review

Sparks, popular author of several romantically themed best-sellers, including Message in a Bottle (1998), is back at it with his latest mix of love story and pathos. He doesn't disappoint, whipping up plenty of melodrama in the story of two shattered people, both badly scarred by past experiences, who find each other late in life and realize they are soul mates. Adrienne Willis is a 45-year-old mother of three whose husband recently abandoned her for a younger woman. When she visits the small coastal town of Rodanthe, North Carolina, seeking a bit of respite from her problems, she meets Paul Flanner, a 54-year-old doctor who has sold his thriving medical practice and come to Rodanthe to escape his own tortured past. Despite their short courtship, the two find themselves falling madly and passionately in love and vow to spend their lives together. Unfortunately, Paul needs to make amends with the son he has long neglected and so embarks on an ill-fated trip, which leads to heartbreak. Sparks has a very solid fan base, and they will be clamoring for his latest. --Kathleen Hughes


Publisher's Weekly Review

Sparks (A Bend in the Road, etc.) logs more miles on the winding high road of romance with the story of two middle-aged people who meet by chance in the small North Carolina coastal town of Rodanthe. The impassioned but doomed romance seems to owe much to Robert James Waller's The Bridges of Madison County. Once again, a housewife who has focused on everyone but herself indulges in a brief, intense, secret affair with a stranger who changes her life forever. As the story begins, Adrienne Willis is 60, the divorced mother of three grown children. To help her troubled daughter cope with the untimely recent death of her husband, Adrienne tells her the tale of her love affair, which took place 15 years before. At the time, Adrienne was an uptight matron whose ex-husband had just left her for a younger woman. This rejection colors her entire life, and Sparks realistically portrays a vulnerable and isolated woman who throws herself into raising her children to escape her despair. Paul Flanner, her paramour, is a surgeon and an obsessive workaholic with no genuine connection to his wife or son, whose world completely falls apart when one of his patients inexplicably dies. Sparks builds a taut, plausible relationship between his protagonists, but even fans may be irked by the obviousness of their story and the inevitability of their fate. Agent, Theresa Park. (Sept. 18) Forecast: The obvious echoes of The Bridges of Madison County are more likely to hurt this title than help it, but Sparks has a proven track record, and major television and print advertising and a 25-city author tour should inflate sales.
