Almighty God, Christ of the last days, who has appeared to do His work, expresses all truths that purify and save mankind, and all of them are included in The Word Appears in the Flesh. This has fulfilled what is written in the Bible: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (Jhn 1:1). As for The Word Appears in the Flesh, this is the first time since the creation of the world that God has addressed all mankind. These utterances form the first text expressed by God among mankind in which He exposes people, guides them, judges them, and speaks heart-to-heart to them and so, too, are they the first utterances in which God lets people know His footsteps, the place in which He lies, God’s disposition, what God has and is, God’s thoughts, and His concern for mankind. It can be said that these are the first utterances that God has spoken to mankind from the third heaven since the creation, and the first time that God has used His inherent identity to appear and express the voice of His heart to mankind amid words. Note: The Word Appears in the Flesh (abbreviated as The Word), expressed by Christ of the Last Days, Almighty God, currently consists of six volumes: Volume One, The Appearance and Work of God; Volume Two, On Knowing God; Volume Three, The Discourses of Christ of the Last Days; Volume Four, Exposing Antichrists; Volume Five, The Responsibilities of Leaders and Workers; and Volume Six, On the Pursuit of the Truth.

Liu Zhi (c1662-c1730), a well-known Muslim scholar writing in Chinese, published outstanding theological works, short treatises, and short poems on Islam. While traditional Arabic and Persian Islamic texts used unfamiliar concepts to explain Islam, Liu Zhi translated both text and concepts into Chinese culture. In this erudite volume, David Lee examines how Liu Zhi integrated the basic religious living of the monotheistic Hui Muslims into their pluralistic Chinese culture. Liu Zhi discussed the Prophet Muhammad in Confucian terms, and his work served as a bridge between peoples. This book is an in-depth study of Liu Zhi's contextualization of Islam within Chinese scholarship that argues his merging of the two never deviated from the basic principles of Islamic belief.

Christians already have victory over the world through Jesus, but Satan picks a fight with believers nonetheless, tempting them with the influences of the world in an effort to steal God’s glory. Indeed, the battle rages on , but the nature of the enemy is baldly exposed in Spiritual Warfare, helping readers better understand feelings of resentment, anger, doubt, pride, and adversity for what they really are: fiery darts of deception. Written by International Mission Board president Jerry Rankin, who has witnessed spiritual warfare at work around the world, the book in turn becomes an inspiring guide to the Spirit-filled life, illuminating spiritual disciplines that equip us for victory including prayer, Bible study, fasting, Sabbath observance, active church membership, and praising God in all things.
