***2015 National Jewish Book Award Winner*** In this powerful and timely book, one of the most admired and authoritative religious leaders of our time tackles the phenomenon of religious extremism and violence committed in the name of God. If religion is perceived as being part of the problem, Rabbi Sacks argues, then it must also form part of the solution. When religion becomes a zero-sum conceit—that is, my religion is the only right path to God, therefore your religion is by definition wrong—and individuals are motivated by what Rabbi Sacks calls “altruistic evil,” violence between peoples of different beliefs appears to be the only natural outcome. But through an exploration of the roots of violence and its relationship to religion, and employing groundbreaking biblical analysis and interpretation, Rabbi Sacks shows that religiously inspired violence has as its source misreadings of biblical texts at the heart of all three Abrahamic faiths. By looking anew at the book of Genesis, with its foundational stories of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, Rabbi Sacks offers a radical rereading of many of the Bible’s seminal stories of sibling rivalry: Cain and Abel, Isaac and Ishmael, Jacob and Esau, Joseph and his brothers, Rachel and Leah. “Abraham himself,” writes Rabbi Sacks, “sought to be a blessing to others regardless of their faith. That idea, ignored for many of the intervening centuries, remains the simplest definition of Abrahamic faith. It is not our task to conquer or convert the world or enforce uniformity of belief. It is our task to be a blessing to the world. The use of religion for political ends is not righteousness but idolatry . . . To invoke God to justify violence against the innocent is not an act of sanctity but of sacrilege.” Here is an eloquent call for people of goodwill from all faiths and none to stand together, confront the religious extremism that threatens to destroy us, and declare: Not in God’s Name.

Paula Fouce was trapped in a religious riot after the assassination of India's Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Her life was threatened as mobs murdered in revenge and the country exploded in carnage. Before that time, she worked in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kashmir, India, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Tibet, and it had been peaceful. Not in God's Name searches for the causes and solutions to religious intolerance. Paula's quest to understand the causes of this violence took her on a journey to meet faith leaders including Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama. She followed the Dalai Lama's guidance to understand religious intolerance. She produced the film. Not in God's Name, that aired on PBS, and wrote this book. Not in God's Name examines why religious clashes ravage our world, and why different creeds sometimes don't live in harmony. At any given time in our world, there are fifty conflicts being fought in the name of faith. Religion, a source of great peace, is sometimes misused to create division and strife. Not in God's Name asks the question, "Why do people kill in the name of God?"

WARNING: This book contains material of a CONTROVERSIAL nature relating to what is taught in Christianity today. Now, if controversy scares you, stop reading here. Really. It means this book is NOT FOR YOU. Today, many still believe that the divine name of God should not be used, because it is not known exactly how to pronounce it. The personal name of God has been replaced with titles such as "Father," "Creator," "the Almighty," "Sovereign Lord," and "the Most High." At some point the Jews felt that it was wrong even to pronounce the divine name. Some thought the name was too sacred for imperfect lips to speak. Yet God's name JEHOVAH appears nearly 7,000 times in the Hebrew text; printed in Biblia Hebraica and Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia. Can using God’s name change your life? Yes it can! Within these pages you'll learn how you can use the power of God’s name in every aspect of your life -- money, health, relationships, happiness, and in every interaction you have in the world. You'll begin to understand the hidden, untapped power behind the name JEHOVAH and how hundreds of ethnic groups and languages have overcome obstacles, and achieved what many would regard as impossible. You’ll understand just about everything that’s happening in your own life as well as in the lives of those you’re interacting with. With JEHOVAH’S power you can be, do, or have anything that you desire! “You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. Jehovah is righteous in all his ways and loyal in all that he does. Jehovah is near to all those calling on him, To all who call on him in truth.”—PSALMS 145:16-18 (LINK TO BONUS AUDIO & VIDEO SHOWCASE INCLUDED INSIDE)

John Piper has had a profound impact on countless men and women over his nearly thirty years of ministry. From his online ministry with Desiring God to his preaching ministry at Bethlehem Baptist to his writing ministry in over thirty books, his faithful service has encouraged and challenged many with God’s Word. Piper’s influence does not stem from his own abilities and accomplishments, but finds its source in his consistent and humble leading of others to Scripture, where the breathtaking glory of God is displayed in all its wonder. We rejoice and are changed as we encounter glorious truths about God in Piper’s ministry. It is in this spirit that friends and colleagues of Piper, including Wayne Grudem, D. A. Carson, Randy Alcorn, and others, honor him by presenting essays covering topics central to his ministry: prayer, the sovereignty of God, justification, Jonathan Edwards, Christian Hedonism, and more. Pastors, scholars, and lay leaders will benefit from this tribute to a man who has labored so faithfully for the fame of God’s name.

What is your name? It is the first question one person asks another upon first meeting. Once names are revealed, the two parties are well on the way to the formation of some form of social relationship. Unlike our modern world, a name in Bible times was not a mere label, but a profile of character. This is especially the case in terms of God's self-disclosure in the unfolding pages of the Old Testament. The progressive revelation of God's name to the Hebrew people is a veritable theology, or study of the attributes of God. In this book, Michael Gowens examines the meaning and significance of the primary names of God - Elohim, Jehovah, & Adonai - together with several of the more salient compound names of each: El-Shaddai, El-Roi, El-Elyon, Jehovah-Jireh, Jehovah-Rophe, and more. Study along with him and experience how the revelation of God's name in the Bible is a firm foundation on which to cultivate a closer fellowship with him.
