Health care is on the brink of monumental change. Innovations in care and cost are making health care more available than ever. And yet, health insurers and government bureaucrats have yet to catch up to these advances, making traditional health insurance practices not only out-of-date, but overly expensive and unnecessarily cumbersome and frustrating. Moreover, their decision on what to pay for and what not to pay for may have an even bigger role in determining the health care you receive than you and your doctor. There´s a better way! In this book, you´ll learn about health care sharing ministries. These ministries have been around for decades, and have paid for billions of dollars of health care expenses for hundreds of thousands of patients. And they´re revolutionizing the way health care is provided and paid. Here´s a preview of what you´ll learn.... A distinctively Christian vision of health care How to lower your monthly health care costs The freedom of becoming a self-pay patient Resources for consumer-based discounts for medical needs and procedures And much, much, more! With health care sharing ministries, your days of freedom from the outdated bureaucratic mismanagement of health insurance have finally arrived. Welcome to the health care revolution! 1.

Bishop John Shelby Spong, author of Jesus for the Non-Religious, Why Christianity Must Change or Die, Sins of Scripture, and many other books, is known for his controversial ideas and fighting for minority rights. In Eternal Life: A New Vision, a remarkable spiritual journey about his lifelong struggle with the questions of God and death, he reveals how he came to a new conviction about eternal life. God, says Spong, is ultimately one, and each of us is part of that oneness. We do not live on after death as children who have been rewarded with heaven or punished with hell but as part of the life and being of God, sharing in God´s eternity, which is beyond the barriers of time and space. spong argues that the discovery of the eternal can be found within each of us if we go deeply into ourselves, transcend our limits and become fully human. By seeking God within, by living each day to its fullest, we will come to understand how we live eternally.Always compelling and controversial, Spong, the leading Christian liberal and pioneer for human rights, wrestles with the question that all of us will ultimately face. In his final book, Spong takes us beyond religion and even beyond Christianity until he arrives at the affirmation that the fully realized human life empties into and participates in the eternity of God. The pathway into God turns out to be both a pathway into ourselves and a doorway into eternal life. To Job´s question ´´If a man (or a woman) dies, will he (or she) live again?´´ he gives his answer as a ringing yes! 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Morgan.

Raised like sisters, Mariamne and Salome are indulged with riches, position, and learning - a rare thing for females in ancient Jerusalem. But Mariamne has a further gift: an illness has left her with visions - she has the power of prophecy. It is her prophesying that drives the two girls to flee to Egypt, where they study philosophy, mathematics, and astronomy in the Great Library of Alexandria. After seven years they return to a Judea, where many now believe John the Baptizer is the messiah. Salome too begins to believe, but Mariamne, now called Magdalene, is drawn to his cousin, Yeshu´a, a man touched by the divine in the same way she was during her days of illness. Together they speak of sharing their direct experience of God. But Yeshu´a unexpectedly gains a reputation as a healer, and as the ill and the troubled flock to him, he and Magdalene are forced to make a terrible decision. This radical retelling of the greatest story ever told brings Mary Magdalene to life, not as a prostitute or demon-possessed, but as an educated woman who was truly the ´´apostle to the apostles´´. 1.
