Science resurrects the gods: While on the hunt for two missing colleagues in Mexico, anthropologist Anthony Peet barely escapes a cenote collapse with his life while his student, Lori Dewson, is lost to a watery grave. Reeling from the tragedy, he is forced to continue his search, which quickly leads to the trail of a stolen reliquary cross rumored to have direct access to God. Little does Peet realize he’s centered himself between two opposing paramilitaries gridlocked in their own clandestine war. Combed from the land where even gods are known to fall, subtle clues sweep Peet from majestic Mayan pyramids to Izapan mythology to the Long Count Calendar’s cosmology. Secrets are as entangled as the tropical forests and unraveling them requires wading through the emotional jungle of his own heart. In this world, truths are distorted every step of the way and Peet must determine which friends cannot be trusted, which enemies to befriend, what finds were never lost and which losses should never be found.
The concept of God has evolved over the centuries, just as humans have. As our understanding of the Universe has expanded, so too should our vision of the divine. In Problem Gods: In Search of a Meaningful Deity Dr. Garber puts forth an unique, comprehensive argument as to how our vision and understanding of the divine should evolve in conjunction with our evolving understanding of the Universe. Although some view God as supernatural and immutable, others believe that God is dead, and over time the ancient gods of the past have evolved from anthropomorphic concepts to today's monotheistic God that is both anthropomorphic and metaphysical, having been sculpted to meet our emotional and spiritual needs. Today, however, science, and especially astronomy, relativity, and quantum theory allow us to redefine God in a more rational, meaningful and practical way. This Neo-Natural God, as Dr. Garber labels this God, is defined by the world around and within us. Although the Neo-Natural God may not meet all the needs humans desire, it is logically consistent and devoid of the outmoded divine mythological images we have so long espoused. Problem Gods presents this new meaningful and rational view of God for the first time. James J. Garber holds a B.A. in philosophy, master degrees in counseling, astronomy and theology as well as a Ph.D. in humanities and an M.D. These studies along with a life-long interest in philosophy and religion have culminated in Problem Gods: In Search of a Meaningful Deity.
This is a very straightforward, easy to understand study of the biblical doctrines of salvation in the deity of Jesus Christ. It is short, yet clear and simple to understand, as it is laid out as if the writer were simply speaking to you in a classroom setting.

The central theological distinctive of Christianity--that Jesus is God incarnate--has repeatedly come under fire from adherents to other religions and scholars who interpret Jesus as a prophet, angel, or guru. Putting Jesus in His Place is designed to introduce Christians to the wealth of biblical teaching on the deity of Christ. Using evidence from the New Testament, this book helps readers appreciate the significance of Christ's deity in a personal relationship with Him, and gives them the confidence to share the truth about Jesus with others. The book is divided into five sections, each corresponding to an aspect of the New Testament's revelation of Jesus as God, and using an acronym based on the letters in the word HANDS:H-Honors (Jesus shares the honors that are due God)A-Attributes (Jesus shares the attributes of God)N-Names (Jesus shares the names of God)D-Deeds (Jesus shares the deeds that God does)S-Seat (Jesus shares the seat of God's eternal throne)Putting Jesus in His Place engages objections to the divine identity of Jesus Christ from Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Muslims, Unitarians, and other religious perspectives. Its emphasis throughout, however, is on the positive case for the deity of Christ. The book introduces the reader to cutting-edge scholarship on New Testament Christology and makes the information accessible and usable for those who are not biblical scholars or theologians. Endorsed by an impressive lineup of leading specialists in the field including Martin Hengel, Richard Bauckham, I. Howard Marshall, Craig A. Evans, Daniel B. Wallace, Murray J. Harris, and Larry Hurtado, Putting Jesus in His Place is an indispensable introduction and reference on the New Testament teaching about the identity of Jesus Christ.
The following work was written, and, except for some revision, in its present form, for the Gif Ford Lectures delivered at the University of Glasgow in the sessions 1916-18. The spoken lectures were based upon the book, but for reasons of time did not follow the text closely. I have accordingly omitted all reference to them in the division of the subject. I take this opportunity of expressing my thanks to the University of Glasgow for the honour they did me in entrusting me with the office of Gif Ford Lecturer ;and to my audience for the attention with which they listened to me. The substance of various published papers has been incorporated into the book, and in several places, notably in the chapters on Freedom and Value, passages have been repeated verbally with the kind permission of the editors of Mind and the Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society. The first volume and the first two chapters of the second were in pages before the summer of last year, and accordingly I have made no reference to Mr. A. N. Whitehead swork on The Principles of Natural Knowledge, nor to Mr. Einstein sgeneralised form of the Theory of Relativity (the earlier restricted form I have ventured to refer to) which has lately become generally known in this country through Mr. Eddington and other exponents.

Americans love God. We stamp God on our money, our bumper stickers, and our bodies. With a church on nearly every street, it's hard to deny our country's deep connection with the divine. Yet culture critic Matthew Paul Turner says that God didn't just change America-America changed God. As a result, do we even recognize the "real" God? Whip-smart and provocative, Turner explores the United States' vast influence on God, told through an amazing true history of faith, politics, and evangelical pyrotechnics. From Puritans to Pentecostals, from progressives to mega-pastors, Turner examines how American history and ideals transformed our perception of God. Fearless and funny, this is the definitive guide to the American experience of the Almighty-a story so bizarre, incredible, and entertaining that it could only be made in the U.S.A. No matter what your political or religious affiliation, this book will challenge and delight with its razor sharp wit, social commentary, and savvy historical insight. It will make you reconsider the way you think about America as a "Christian nation," and help you re-imagine a better future for God and country. Ultimately, Turner dares to ask: Does God control the future of America-or is it the other way around?
