The Precious Pearls Of The Bhagvadgita by G.K.Varshney Summary
In this book a new approach has been adopted to present the subject matter of the Bhagvadgita. In order to clearly understand the Gita, its whole subject-matter has been divided in nine main/major concepts. All the matter relating to a particular concept, scattered over the different chapters of the Gita, has been collected together and briefly explained under the concerened concept at one place. Then, conclusion about each concept has been given at its end. A notable feature of the book is that it has been attempted throughout to keep the interpretations of the couplets of the Gita exact, as they are, without embellishing them by personal sentiments and reverence. The author has been quite conscious to keep the explanation brief, clear and to the point. An effort has been made that each and every reader of the book clearly understand as to “What the Gita says about what and what is the real substance” — a new approach in real terms, that makes the book one of its own kind.
Precious Pearl by Joan Hughes Summary
Ever since she was old enough to pick up a crayon, Lucy has enjoyed writing stories. She strings words together just like the pearls that are strung together to form the necklace that her mother wears to church every Sunday. After spotting a silly little mouse squeezing through a hole in the wall at church. Lucy is inspired to write a story for her next assignment at school. When her talents are questioned, Lucy finds comfort from a classmate who gives her a special gift. Thanks to the boy's kindness Lucy learns that importance of the many gifts in her life – not only her gift for storytelling but the greater gift of friendship. She is inspired by the parable of the precious pearl: "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it." (Matthew 13: 45-46)
Life's Most Precious Pearls by Vicki L. Cutting Summary
Vicki Cutting was born in Michigan in 1957. At the age of thirteen, Vicki began caring for her mother who was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her mother's battle with the cancer consumed most of Vicki's time up through her high school years. In 1974 her mother lost her battle with the cancer and passed away. The loss of her mother had a devastating and profound effect on her life. That loss would twist and bend her emotionally for years to come. She now resides in Dearborn, Michigan, with her husband and two college-age sons. In the early 1990s Vicki was diagnosed with adult ADHD. That diagnosis has helped her put her many trials and treasures in perspective. Vicki has always loved poetry, but because of the many trials in her life it got pushed to the background. Recently a friend e-mailed her a poem by Wordsworth that brought that love back to her. Since rekindling her passion for writing, she has written more than one hundred poems in a nine-month span. This book is a small collection of those poems about the many pleasures and irritations that make us into who we are in our lives.
Timeless Reflections by Mary Ann Caskey-Drake Summary
My poetry is often referred to as straight from the heart most of my poems were inspired from my own personal experiences or from the inspiration I felt when talking to others .not necessarily my thoughts but the way I thought the other person felt, Within these pages you will find the expressions of many emotions tears of joy, sadness, laughter, love and many others, Some may even make you shed a tear or two, if so I was probably shedding a few of my own when I wrote it, I tell my friends and family that these poems were written in tears and they truly were. Not all of my poetry is sad and should apply to both male and female of all ages . I hope you enjoy my book and if you would like to comment on any of them you can contact me at mcaskeydrake @yahoo.com

Holy Bible Recovery Version by Living Stream Ministry Summary
Throughout the centuries, translations of the Bible have steadily improved. In general, each new translation inherits from previous ones and opens the way for later ones. While a new translation derives help from its predecessors, it should go further. The Recovery Version of the New Testament, following the precedent set by the major authoritative English versions and taking these versions as reference, not only incorporates lessons learned from an examination of others’ practices but also attempts to avoid biases and inaccurate judgments. This version, frequently guided by other versions, attempts to provide the best utterance for the revelation in the divine Word, that it may be expressed in the English language with the greatest accuracy. Translating the Bible depends not only on an adequate comprehension of the original language but also on a proper understanding of the divine revelation in the holy Word. Throughout the centuries the understanding of the divine revelation possessed by the saints has always been based upon the light they received, and this understanding has progressed steadily. The consummation of this understanding forms the basis of this translation and its footnotes. Hence, this translation and the accompanying footnotes could be called the “crystallization” of the understanding of the divine revelation which the saints everywhere have attained to in the past two thousand years. It is our hope that the Recovery Version will carry on the heritage that it has received and will pave the way for future generations. As with any New Testament translation, the determination of the original Greek text, based upon the available manuscripts, forms the basis for the text of the Recovery Version of the New Testament. The Recovery Version follows, for the most part, the Nestle-Aland Greek text as found in Novum Testamentum Graece (26th edition). However, in determining the original form of any verse, the translators of the Recovery Version gave careful consideration to the larger context of chapter and book and to similar portions of the New Testament. The most recently discovered manuscripts or the manuscripts of oldest date are not necessarily the most accurate or reliable; hence, the determination of the text for this version was based largely upon the principle stated above. Departures from the Nestle-Aland text are sometimes indicated in the footnotes. Italicized words in the verses indicate supplied words, not found in the Greek text. Quotation marks are used to indicate close quotation from the Old Testament. The Recovery Version embodies extensive research into the meaning of the original text and attempts to express this meaning with English that is to the point, easy to understand, and readable. In those places where it is difficult to express the exact meaning of the original Greek, explanatory footnotes have been supplied. The subject provided at the beginning of each book and the outline of each book take the historical facts as their base and express the spiritual meaning in each book. The footnotes stress the revelation of the truth, the spiritual light, and the supply of life more than history, geography, and persons. The cross-references lead not only to other verses with the same expressions and facts but also to other matters related to the spiritual revelation in the divine Word.
