Times of Trial: an End Times novel

Times of Trial (Christian fiction)  

 

The 2nd novel in my End Times series. Can be read as a stand-alone novel

 

A preacher and his family, the Tyler's, have a church that is dying in Arizona. They take care of the remaining senior citizens of the church, including the ones in nursing homes and in hospice. The only other family in the church, the White's, leave the same church and head to Wyoming where others are so they can attempt to escape the increasing persecution of Christians.

Meanwhile, President Collins orders the activation of Camps across the country that will house believers who he thinks are a threat to his rule. His patron, Michael Collins, manipulates events in the Middle East and continues to manipulate events as the End Times approach.

Soul and Reincarnation: What Happens to Soul at the Time of Death

Soul and Reincarnation 

 


Nonfiction > Inspiration > Self-help
Published: Feb. 07, 2011

Words: 44493 (approximate)
Language: English


Also available in Printed Edition

 

Short description

The views on soul and reincarnation vary from no such thing as a ‘soul’ to only humans possess a soul, to both humans and animals possess a soul, and that soul likewise dies when the physical body dies or that soul is immortal and never dies. All religions believe in the existence of SOUL in human body, but they differ in what happens after death. This manuscript searches for the truth.

Learning from the Octopus by Rafe Sagarin

www.learningfromtheoctopus.com

I am pleased to announce the publication of my book, "Learning from the Octopus: How Secrets from Nature Can Help Us Fight Terrorist Attacks, Natural Disasters and Disease" (Basic Books). 
The main premise of the book is that natural organisms have learned to thrive in an unpredictable and risk filled planet without having the power to plan, predict, or try to perfect themselves.  By contrast, we waste endless resources on strategic planning, predictive models, and optimization, with few successes to show for it.  Natural organisms have successfully avoided all this waste by being adaptable, and the book shows how they do it and how we can emulate natural adaptability in our own lives and organizations. Inside you'll find tragic tales of our failures in society to be adaptable, remarkable stories of the intricate ways in which natural organisms have survived and thrived for billions of years on an unpredictable planet, and hopeful examples of how all sorts of people, organizations, corporations and bureaucracies have learned to be adaptable.

I am pasting below some links to the book website and recent articles in popular media.  If you can please spread the news on your social networks, I would really appreciate it!  And of course, I always welcome your thoughts, inspirations and updates.
Best,
Rafe
