The Rules of the Game Renford  


The Rules of the GameThe Rules of the Game is a booklet, which introduces the Universal Laws in the simplest manner possible.  It is not an in-depth study, but provides a basis for understanding of the Laws and the Renford Books. The game of football or any game are shown to be analogous to the Laws of Life and the quotes illustrate that even on the simplest everyday matters of life, these Laws are in play. (Available by e-mail to anyone who sends their email address and request it.  It will also be available in paperback) 


The Core Teachings Renford  


COR DocumentThis book identifies thirteen Universal Laws that were taught by the Great Masters.  The emphasis is on how their teachings were alike as opposed to how they were different.  Readers and students can see for themselves how the original teachings parallel each other.  In the process, what has been added can be identified.  To some degree there is an introduction to the Universal Laws in virtually all of the Renford Books, but in The Core Teachings there is a more in depth study of the Laws. (Available in manuscript form for Masters students of the Institute only) 




The Father Confusors Renford 


This is a study of ancient scripture and the parallels that can be seen in related stories.  It is the second phase of the study program and builds on the lessons learned from The Universal Laws.  Once the Universal Laws are understood, at least on a basic level, Universal Being vs. The Father Confusors helps differentiate between Universal Being, God, and entities that were thought to be God or posed as God.  The First Cause, The Creative Force we call Universal Being, is identified through the Divine Self-Expression, the Universal Laws.  (Currently available only to Masters students of the Institute in manuscript form.  It will be available in paperback) 


The Metaphysical Bible Renford 


The Metaphysical BiblePopular and familiar passages such as Isaiah 55, the Lord’s Prayer, the 23rd Psalm and others are revealed in a different light.  The deeper and, with all due respect to theologians and philosophers, clearer picture of what was being said is recorded for your study.  Many of these interpretations can be found in elsewhere in the Renford Books.  They are, however, all together and in an easily understandable order in this book.  (This book will be available in paperback form by mid 2003.  It is currently available to Masters students only) 


In Search of Self – Renford
In Search of SelfThis is a book of prose and poetry by Renford that parallels the other books in the study of the Universal Laws. You will find that one of these Laws states that to truly understand anything one must experience it personally. In Search of Self is the rendering of the Laws in a different way to allow the opportunity for these books to key off memories of how the Laws have been in play in your life experiences. (This book is available in paperback on international listings.) 


What Now? Essays Renford 


Included in this book is a series of essays by Renford on a variety of subjects of contemporary interest.  Always, even though the subject matter is of present day concern, the power and harmony that can be gained by understanding of the ancient teaching of Universal Laws are applied.  (Available only to doctoral students of the Institute) 


The House That Namuh Built Renford 


The House That Namuh BuiiltThe creation of meaningful allegories, in fact, the writing of allegories, is an art form that some think is disappearing.  When you do find a good allegory that is expressing a Universal Principle, it can have a powerful affect on your life.  The House That Namuh Built is about first a man, and then a whole people who begin on the path of Self-discovery.  Again, it is about the Universal Laws, the invariant facts of life, upon which we can base our understanding for Self-discovery.  (Available in paperback form on international listings and bookstores everywhere.) 


The Laws of Material Wealth Renford 


The Laws of Material WealthThis book was written for those who are pondering career changes or contemplating going into business for themselves.  It applies Renford’s understanding of the Universal Laws with his experience working with entrepreneurs, especially in start up situations. (This book accompanied by workbook sold separately.  There is also a power point presentation in outline form on CD.) 


The River of Life Renford  


The River of LifeThis book is primarily written in verse.  It is about the eternal nature of being.  Christian dogma starts the clock on the nature of being with physical birth and this essentially denies the word eternal except in terms of an eternal reward or punishment.  This book points to the fact that the word eternal means without beginning or end.  (This book is in production and will be available in paperback by mid 2003) 




The Mysteries Revealed – Renford 


The Mysteries RevealedThough most consider the Book of Revelation simply to be a book of riddles, there are those who teach a religion of fear based upon it.  The Mysteries Revealed is a metaphysical interpretation of the Apocalypse of John – the revelation of Jesus.  It is a roadmap to self-unfoldment.  It is the mysteries revealed.  (This book is available in paperback and e-book.  It is on international listings  




Unity Principles Renford  


Unity PrinciplesResearch of the writings of Charles Fillmore and Emilie Cady pertaining to the Universal Laws resulted in the writing of Unity Principles.  The Unity Movement was dynamic and part of what some call, New Thought.   As it became more established with its own theological seminary and ministerial program, 5 principles have emerged as key Unity Principles.  With this study by a not Unity Minister, the author provides a different perspective of the Unity Principles.
