Our Bodies Belong to God

Those against organ transfer say it is wrong because it belongs to God [innahu milk Allah]. This is a lack of understanding. Everything belongs to God. The earth belongs to God: this doesn't mean that we can't plant or irrigate it.

"Based on extensive research in Egypt, this powerful, deeply disturbing ethnography causes readers to question commonly held assumptions about the organ transplant enterprise. Hamdy, acutely sensitive to the destructive forces of extreme poverty, argues against an ethics of codified rules whether religious or secular, and for a flexible bioethics situated in the historical, socio/economic and religious realities of Egyptians' daily life."--Margaret Lock, co-author of An Anthropology of Biomedicine “This is the best ethnography yet available on Islamic ethical reasoning and medical practice. Hamdy presents a truly sophisticated and nuanced portrayal of the organ transplant debate in Egypt and its larger implications for the Middle East and medicine.” --John Bowen, author of A New Anthropology of Islam “Our Bodies Belong to God is a sensitive and original exploration of how religious ethics inform the practice of medicine for doctors, patients and policy makers alike. This will be read widely in medical anthropology and the field of ethics.” --Saba Mahmood, author of Politics of Piety: The Islamic Revival and the Feminist Subject

Salvation Belongs to Our God

Christopher Wright uses this verse as a lens through which he surveys the Bible’s teaching on 'salvation’. Every phrase in the verse resonates with significant themes in the Old and New Testaments, all of which combine to show that the Bible tells the story of God’s salvation very broadly indeed, in relation to the character and purposes of God, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the redemption of all creation, the joy of Christian experience and the responsibility of Christian mission. This clear, deep and warm-hearted exposition enriches our grasp of the Bible’s multi-faceted teaching about salvation.

This is a different kind of dream book. Everything you need to know about dreams is in the Bible, but you must learn how to read between the lines so to speak. Dreams are the same for everyone. Unfortunately, if youre not a Christian and do not believe in the Bible, you will never be able to interpret your dreams correctly. So get yourself a reference Bible, and whatever you should dream about, find the subject and how the Bible describes it.

The Honour of Belonging to God

Since you belong to God, you should not do anything unless He instructs it. No ambassador acts unilaterally. That includes issues we consider trivial like making purchases. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God.

This book explains how all the different paths, with their different customs and cultures merge into the one supreme God. Whatever name you want to give to this higher power...God, Jesus, Shiva, Krishna, Buddha, Allah, Jehovah, the Universe.....it's all the same. Each chapter talks a little bit about each of the main religions and it is for the reader to determine how they are the same.....not different. The final chapter gives an overview of how the different paths are indeed the same. All paths belong to God. All religions are his. We are all brothers and sisters. Remember who you really are. May this book help one to understand that all religions are equal, all religions are correct. All the rivers flow into one ocean. There are different paths and practices for different people. The reason for this is not only due to cultural differences or living in different countries, but because people choose to honor the divine in their own way that is most meaningful for them.
