What does it mean to have a life? While science attempts to unravel the mysteries of the universe, and the wonders of the creature we call a human being, religion remains rooted in the dogmas of the past. But religion endures as a powerful force throughout the world, and many of its tenets are forever relevant to human existence. Conflicts continue to rage across many regions of our planet, and millions of people still live in constant fear. We need scientists and theologians to help us understand the human condition, but we also need good leaders to navigate the human race through the dangerous waters to come. Do our experiences of the 20th century offer any hope for the 21st? Can science and religion ever be reconciled, and will the nations of the world one day be able to live together in harmony? Can mankind ever solve the puzzle of life? This book explores these and other questions; its ambition is to throw some light on what it means to be alive at the beginning of the 21st century. Science is explained in terms that should be understandable to everyone, and mathematics does not feature at all.

The Puzzle of Life and the Missing Peace

Dialogue With a Master Resolving Religion's Judgements

Everyone seems to have beliefs about religion. Most religious beliefs were given to us as children, by those who also were instructed when they were children. Christians received their doctrine from Counsels hundreds of years ago, who told us what to believe - forever. Everything changes and therefore advances; everything but our beliefs, for if they were to change it would mean they never were true. This book goes back to reinterpret Bible passages from the point of symbol, rather than a literal acceptance of the words presented. In symbol and metaphor, the truth of what was presented to us becomes clear. The Bible stories became a puzzle to solve. Beliefs have done little for mankind. We are in search of the truth that will set us free.

As far back as I can remember, I had a ball of some kind in my hand. Little League was my first experience with a coach, and through the years I found that all my good coaches had one thing in common: They all knew how to motivate their teams. As a twelve-year-old I began to learn more about the most important coach of all: Almighty God. I accepted His Son as my personal savior that year and began to read the Bible. I found throughout my playing days and years of coaching that Gods word uses many of the same motivational words that my former coaches used, which I also use today as a coach. I never dreamed of becoming an author, but one day while walking to school I felt Gods presence. He spoke to me as I walked, and He led me to write about these all important words and how they have influenced my life and the lives of many of my students and athletes.

The Puzzle Instinct

The Meaning of Puzzles in Human Life

One of the most famous anagrams of all time was constructed in the Middle Ages. The unknown author contrived it as a Latin dialogue between Pilate and Jesus. Jesus' answer to Pilate's question "What is truth" is phrased as an ingenious anagram of the letters of that very question: Pilate: Quid est veritas? ("What is truth?") Jesus: Est virqui adest. ("It is the man before you.") The origin of anagrams is shrouded in mystery. One thing is clear, however -- in the ancient world, they were thought to contain hidden messages from the gods. Legend has it that even Alexander the Great (356--323 b.c.) believed in their prophetic power. -- from Chapter Two The most obvious explanation for the popularity of puzzles is that they provide a form of constructive entertainment. But in The Puzzle Instinct Marcel Danesi contends that the fascination with puzzles throughout the ages suggests something much more profound. Puzzles serve a deeply embedded need in people to make sense of things. Emerging at the same time in human history as myth, magic, and the occult arts, the puzzle instinct, he claims, led to discoveries in mathematics and science, as well as revolutions in philosophical thought. Puzzles fill an existential void by providing "small-scale experiences of the large-scale questions that Life poses. The puzzle instinct is, arguably, as intrinsic to human nature as is humor, language, art, music, and all the other creative faculties that distinguish humanity from all other species."

Just Below the Surface

Poems Uncovering the Puzzles of Life and Honoring the Joys of Family

Author: Rich Wilbur

Publisher: N.A

Category: Poetry

Page: 72

Poems are born in the warp and woof of our existence. They arise from the raw material of life and speak to the way we care and the things we share. They are a stop sign on the road of life, a pause to ponder the road behind and plan the trip ahead. Rich Wilbur makes this pause easy with Just Below the Surface, a book of poems that lights our path, stirs the soul and spurs the mind. "Life is an account holding the asset called time" one of his poems begins, and how we use this asset determines the quality of our brief stay on planet Earth. Often a poem is a quiet cove, a respite to reflect on the meaning of life. Rich asserts in "Destiny" that "a poem is a frown at the puzzle of existence, a furrow in the brow - inquisitive persistence." This inquisitive persistence gently leads the reader through poems entitled Eternity, Faith and Doubt, Freedom, Gratitude, Living Now, Melancholy, The Hourglass of Existence, Time, and more, all topics of keen interest to curious people. In part two, the poems celebrate love and family ("a collection of God given friends, bound by love until our journey ends"). Wilbur believes poetry is incurably infected with the events of life, and no events are as central to human happiness as love and family. This collection is a beautiful example of poetic expression, of graceful words provoking a response of the soul to the external world.

"Climbing the Tree of Life, The O.A.K. Ministry" uses original poetry, famous quotations, God's word, and personal witness to show the extraordinary hand of God in the ordinary life of the author. The book was written as a way to encourage a ministry of love through offering acts of kindness. It is the hope of the author that the truths found within this book will be life-changing to the reader and trend-changing for the world as this ministry grows."The O.A.K. Ministry was born one day when God showed me a simple truth through an act of kindness on the side of a road. Since then, it has become my mission to share that truth with as many as I can. My means were limited but God's are not. He gave me the ability to string a few words together and create poetry. From that poetry the idea of writing this book was created." -Jim ClementsA native New Yorker, Jim Clements spent his early adult life as a carefree biker. The same year his first son Patrick was born, his lifestyle took an abrupt change after a motorcycle accident left him with a debilitating head injury. Four years later, after regaining the use of his left arm and leg, he began his career as a firefighter and he and his wife, Joan, welcomed their second son, Christopher. The death of Jim's father and the model of his faith put Jim on a search for the God he had long ignored. Now as a retired firefighter/paramedic with an R.N. degree, he lives in Ormond Beach, Florida with his wife Joan. He longs to share his faith and love for the God he now knows.
