A Course in Miracles contains a program of study whose completion promises inner peace. Its curriculum is designed to rid us of fear and return us to love. Its three volumes amount to a massive 1200 plus pages of theory and practice. Students of the Course find the Text, the volume in which the Course's philosophy is laid out across a vast and tortuous terrain of theory, particularly difficult to navigate. Another Way of Seeing guides you across that terrain by identifying the basic tenets of the Course.Devoting each chapter to one basic teaching, Another Way of Seeing explains the Course in clear and simple terms. It then does what no other book on the Course has done so far-it illustrates the Course at work. Each chapter concludes with a discussion of a piece of classical literature that shows the principles of the Course put into practice. Dr. Poresky, a literary scholar and professor, brings her appreciation and knowledge of A Course in Miracles together with her conviction that literature teaches us about ourselves and our relationships with others, and by combining the two, she shows you another way of seeing.
Hammie and Alti van Zyl are in full-time ministry. God often calls them to complete a task far beyond their human abilities. God IS good: come taste and see is a testimonial of God?s abundant goodness and a celebration of their years journeying with God. God IS good: come taste and see is full of stories of how the authors managed to keep on standing in tough times, how they never gave up even in the midst of their trials. They also tell about the great miracles God performed for them, such as: ? How they bought houses without money; ? How God provided or even created what they needed; ? How they supernaturally ran over the Himalayas with the power of God (even when Alti suffered severely from tumours); ? How God healed them instantly; ? How God protected them while they worked in war-torn countries; and ? How God did the impossible and changed many lives. ******************

While on honeymoon in Vienna in June of 1998, at the height of the tourist season, Gerald Daniel Blanchard, an accomplished thief, happened upon the greatest challenge of his life when he spotted the last remaining "Sisi Star" on display in Schonbrunn Palace. Named after its former owner, the Empress Elisabeth, the ten-pointed diamond and pearl star was originally one of 27 that the enigmatic Sisi wore in her extravagantly long hair. Despite the multi-layered security system protecting the priceless jewel, Blanchard decided then and there to steal it. The star remained missing for nine years until a team of Canadian police investigators launched a joint task force to bring down a criminal organization that had robbed banks, stores and ordinary citizens on several continents. When their chief suspect offered to reveal the whereabouts of the Sisi Star, the investigators realized they were dealing with no ordinary thief. But no one involved in the case fully understood the history of the star, its ties to obsession, suicide and assassination.

This book shares how our Lord can speak to us during the storms of our lives. His words are faithful and true. As we are on this journey of life, we experience situations to help us to know that God is with us at all times. His words say that He never leaves us or forsakes us, as we walk out His purpose for our lives. We grow stronger and wiser, as we learn to trust in Him. He is our Father God, and we are His children. When we grow thirsty in the desert times, He is there to give us the Living Water, Christ Jesus, His Son. As you read these words, I pray that they will be a blessing to you and help you to trust in your faithful Father God. Proverbs 3:56—“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him with all your ways, and He will direct your paths.”
This is a brief autobiography, not in any way trying to summarize my life, but rather to highlight points of God’s intervention. Coming from a poor rural family in Kenya, Africa, I had no reason to expect much from life. However, my father believed in me at a time when women were just expected to serve men within the home, so he decided to send me to school. Having been taught about God at home, I wanted to know more about Him when I went to school. In 1957, I had a personal encounter with Him, and my life was never the same. I came to identify myself with the Apostle Paul when he says: For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to...all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also as to one abnormally born. For I am the least...but by the grace of God, I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect (1 Corinthians 15:3-10). The book is my attempt to pass on to the younger generation what I have received from the Lord. I have experienced many miracles that culminated in my coming to America, where God has continued to surprise me, almost on a daily basis. I want my readers to know that though they may be the least in eyes of the world, once they put their faith in the God of the Bible, His grace will be sufficient in all of life’s circumstances. He is no respecter of persons. He blesses men, women, and children, black, white, slave and free!
