Norway 785 AD. It began with the betrayal of a lord by a king...But when King Gorm puts Jarl Harald's family to the sword, he makes one terrible mistake - he fails to kill Harald's youngest son, Sigurd. On the run, unsure who to trust and hunted by powerful men, Sigurd wonders if the gods have forsaken him: his kin are slain or prisoners, his village attacked, its people taken as slaves. Honour is lost. And yet he has a small band of loyal men at his side and with them he plans his revenge. All know that Odin - whose name means frenzy - is drawn to chaos and bloodshed, just as a raven is to slaughter. In the hope of catching the All-Father's eye, the young Viking endures a ritual ordeal and is shown a vision. Wolf, bear, serpent and eagle come to him. Sigurd will need their help if he is to make a king pay in blood for his treachery. Using cunning and war-craft, he gathers together a band of warriors - including Olaf, his father's right hand man, Bram who men call Bear, Black Floki who wields death with a blade, and the shield maiden Valgerd, who fears no man - and convinces them to follow him. For, whether Odin is with him or not, Sigurd will have his vengeance. And neither men nor gods had best stand in his way...It is a must read for all who enjoy thrilling, action-packed fiction fiction - from Bernard Cornwell to George R R Martin's Game of Thrones.

Warlord Trilogy Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

More fantastic adventure tales written by Bernard Cornwell. This collection contains 'Excalibur', 'WinterKing' and 'Enemy of God'. A triology containing Excalibur, Winter King and Enemy of God. Excalibur The third novel in the Warlords Chronicle, Excalibur: A Novel of Arthur immerses the reader in the Britain of the Dark Ages. Merlin, the greatest of the Druids, believes that the ancient gods are deserting Britain, and that the invading Saxons can't be defeated without the gods' help. Mordred reigns with a brutal hand, and Arthur sees his dreams of peace evaporate. The author provides exciting descriptions of swordplay and battles, interspersed with somewhat gruesome depictions of ordinary life in those days-greasy, waist-length beards serving as napkins, lambs bloodily sacrificed before festivals, and rampant lice. Winter King Cornwell really is one of the nation's most impressive authors. And whether he's writing a maritime thriller or a napoleonic war novel, he never disapoints. The Winter King see's the beginning of the Warlord Chronicles, quite possibly the best series he's written, and follows the story of Derfel, through childhood, into Arthur's service and in the following books, through war and into his old age. Enemy of God Enemy of God is the second book in The Warlord Chronicles series by Bernard Cornwell. The trilogy tells the legend of Arthur seen through the eyes of his follower Derfel Cadarn.

I Didn't Want to Be That Girl! Westbow Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

How many times have we pointed a finger at Eve-God's first created woman, who took a bite of the apple after being tempted by a serpent? Although her name is only mentioned in four verses of Scripture, she was made infamous for her greatest debacle. We tend to blame her for our own personal dramas. Eve had everything; she lived in paradise, in a carefree, pain-free, sorrow-free world. In spite of this, she was unsatisfied, and she sinned. God, however, looked beyond her sin and pursued her as part of a bigger story. Surprisingly, He doesn't focus on her sin but rather considered her His bride, the bride of Christ. Building on the story of Eve, I Didn't Want to Be That Girl! A Look into the Life of Eve presents a Bible study designed for women and exploring a variety of topics. Author Sue Allen considers God's silence, His goodness, our humility, our struggles with sin, and our need to learn to hear God's voice. She also examines Godly womanhood, holiness, insecurity, motivations of the heart, restoration and forgiveness, and much, much more. This devotional offers eight weeks of personal, interactive, conversational-style Bible study with daily prompts leading to confession. We, as women, must recognize our need for a Savior, Jesus Christ and realize that we are all sinners, saved by God's grace, and His grace alone. Just like Eve, we didn't want to be that girl. And despite our flawed pasts and imperfections, we have been created to be the bride of Christ. "Through keen insight and real-life vulnerability, Sue Allen unfolds the true nature of what it means to be the bride of Christ. Whether you are happily single, contemplating marriage, or long-time espoused, her fresh wisdom will beckon you to join her in preparing your heart anew for the King of Kings. The bridegroom is coming! What a joy it is to get ready for Him together." Tonya Riggle Pastor's Wife and Bible Study Teacher Second Baptist Church, Houston "Knowing Sue and her heart to have women embrace our inheritance that we have in Christ allows me to not only put my stamp of approval on this study, but to use it in our ministry to college athletes and our staff that ministers to these athletes. Sue Allen's desire for women to live the abundant life in Christ is immediately noticed within minutes of being in her presence. Thank you, Sue, for your passion to study the Word and your love affair with Christ." April Nelson Women's Leadership Team Athletes in Action

Kingdom Politics Cascade Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

American Christians, weary of decades of entrenched partisan feuding, are increasingly distancing themselves from politics. Some, however, continue to turn toward the state and public policy to find solutions to the world's problems. The problem is that both responses allow a narrow vision of politics to determine the church's mission and ministries, which often ends up separating its commitment to personal faith from the pursuit of social justice--the King from the kingdom. Christians too easily forget that the church is inherently political, a community defined by its allegiance to a King, its citizenship in a new world, and its call to work alongside others in pursuit of a new way of life. The church needs a political vision that is more than blind acceptance or mere rejection of past models. It needs a positive vision that takes its cues about politics not from the nation-state but from another political reality: the kingdom of God. This book tells the stories of the visits of two researchers to five diverse congregations across the United States. From the megachurch energy of Rick Warren's Saddleback Church in California, to a young Emergent community in Minneapolis, to the politically active home of Martin Luther King in Atlanta, these stories illuminate the vastly different ways congregations understand and approach politics--and offer a glimpse of a new political imagination for today's church. ""Whether they know it or not, churches perform their message in their way of life as an expression of the gospel, and this all means--as this exceptional study by two young, sophisticated observers contends--that every church is a political way of life. . . . This book may be used as an introduction to the politics of the kingdom or as a refresher for those who have already been thinking along this line, but what it is even more is a collection of keen insights into the realities of America's diverse church-as-politics life."" --Scot McKnight, Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary ""The relationship between faith and politics is notoriously difficult. Yet Norris and Speers provide an accessible resource for congregations that want to learn how other churches navigate this dynamic. . . . At the same time, the book is not afraid to critique, as it offers a vision of political engagement faithful to the biblical mission of the church. This is a must-read for every congregation that desires to grow in ministry."" --Jennifer M. McBride, Regents Chair of Ethics, Wartburg College ""Norris and Speers offer an insightful and multi-storied account of religion and politics on the North American Protestant scene--one that moves us beyond church-state discussions and the various strategic debates on 'direct politicking' that preoccupy both liberal and conservative Christians."" --From the Foreword by Charles Marsh ""Kingdom Politics offers a critically important, next-generation look at the issue of how some U.S. Christians and congregations are breaking out of destructive paradigms for engaging (or fleeing) public life and finding more constructive models for a new era. Highly recommended!"" --David P. Gushee, Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics, Mercer University Kristopher Norris is a Baptist minister and PhD candidate in Theology and Ethics at the University of Virginia. He holds degrees from UNC, Duke, and Emory, and once won an eighth-grade geography bee. Kris lives in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Master's Questions to His Disciples ESSENCE PUB

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is an exceptional King James Version training tool for the Christian. As we see the fulfillment of biblical prophecy unfolding daily, one cannot question the rapid approach of the end times spoken of in the scriptures. With the diluting of God's word and the many different versions of the Bible, there brings a need for a simple presentation to humble the "Now Generation." Taking time to read this book will truly leave one gazing upon the face of God. Leaving one with the question, "Am I living my life kind of Christ-like or am I living my life like Christ?" The questions which our Lord addressed to His disciples at various times are gathered together here from the Four Gospels, and arranged to form the basis of a series of meditations for those private hours, whether on the Lord's Day or on other days, which every Christian heart delights to set apart as silent hours with God. These meditations, being meant for Christians, have been written in such a personal form that each reader may adopt them as his own. "If the blessing of the Great Master Himself shall accompany the reading of these chapters, and any of His disciples be thereby led to a higher faith, a larger trust, a deeper self-scrutiny, and a heartier consecration, my aim in writing them will be attained." -Garelochhead, 1905 *A portion of the sales of this book will go to support the Teen Challenge FARM in London, Ontario, Canada.

Cipher Found (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Cipher Found A prominent gentleman being interviewed as to the Donnelly cipher, said: "The question whether Bacon was the author of the works, or of certain works of Shakespeare, is not new, and I have read numerous pamphlets on the subject, which have taught me nothing... It suffices me to admire "Hamlet," "Macbeth," "King Lear," etc., and I do not seek to know if God exists. The sun shines, and that is enough." Every one is not so easily satisfied. The light of the sun is but one of the many wonders of the Divine Author. We should always, as Lord Bacon says, "enlarge as far as God will permit, the borders of mans dominion." Men of an anylitical bent of mind, have found much to interest them in the Bacon-Shakesperian controversy, and probably without thinking much about doing au act of justice to either author, have determined, if possible, to pluck the mystery out of the works themselves, by endeavoring to discover a cipher, on the clue furnished by various authors. Among the first to call attention to this matter was Mrs. Delia Bacon in a work which displays the greatest research, and a mind capable of fathoming the deepest subjects.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Methodist Magazine, Vol. 10: Designed as a Compend of Useful Knowledge, and of Religious and Missionary Intelligence, for the Year of Our Lord 1827 It must be obvious to all who pay attention to the subject, that the terms kingdom of Christ, kingdom of Heaven, kingdom of God, as used in the New Testament, especially by the evangelists, refer primarily, to the spiritual government of Christ over the hearts of men, through the inżuence of that gospel of which he was the author. And when Christ says of his kingdom, it is not of this world, he should be understood to distinguish it from the governments of this world. The object of Pilate's question seems to have been to ascertain whether Christ was a king. And the design of the answer was not only to affirm that he was a king, but to assert at the same time that his authority and govern ment were not like those of this world. Understanding this to be the import of the text, we proceed to show in several propositions, how Christ's kingdom is distinguished from the governments of this world; and under each proposition, notice, that this differ ence renders the principles of Christ's kingdom of eminent service to the well being of political society.

Passage to Eternity Inkwater Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Azmina Suleman's in-depth account of a near-death experience is a treasure of a spiritual read. Islamic near-death accounts are rather rare in the literature, and this account from a Shia Ismaili Muslim adds a significant dimension to near-death experience accounts. Her 2 - 1/2 page description of her union with Godalone is worth the price of the book! Dr. Ken R. Vincent Author of VISIONS OF GOD FROM THE NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE Azmina Suleman is one of those incredible teachers who provides the reader with a unique glimpse into the other side. She brings a very different perspective as a Muslim and someone from a multicultural background. Yet, she has managed to provide a balanced description of her experience without overstating her beliefs. As a well-grounded and published journalist, Azmina shares her near-death experience in a special way, and in doing so bridges an important gap as she addresses such questions as what it means to have an NDE, and what happenson the other side. More importantly, she forces us to take a closer look at what it is that we should be learning and gathering from these experiences. It is a very well-written account that will speak to the medical community caring for the critically ill, the researcher, as well as those just wanting to know more about the phenomena. Dr. Diane K. Corcoran, Ph.D. Past President of IANDS International Association for Near-Death Studies A Passage to Eternity is destined to be remembered as a notable event in the exploration, study and appreciation of the psyche. Azmina Suleman speaks powerfully and unforgettably, as she takes us on an intimate journey through the complex world of near-death experiences. She distills with stunning clarity the emotional depth, beauty, and spiritual richness to be found in a trans-dimensional reality that lies just beyond the physical. Not only is this book a compelling testament to the potential for profound wisdom and mysterious insight open to those who are receptive to such natural wisdom, but it is an important addition to the field of psycho-spiritual studies based on personal experience. Dr. Abdul Sultan Hassam, Ph.D., D.Sc., ABMPP Professor of Cognitive Science & Philosophy of Religion What impresses me most about Azmina Suleman's extraordinary story is its absolute candor and honesty. Whether you believe in an afterlife or not (and I myself am agnostic on this question), you cannot doubt the truth to be found in her telling of a profound personal experience. What is important here is not its epistemic validity, but its moral value - its power to inspire faith, and care for others. John King University of Calgary, Alberta

Jitterbug Perfume NO EXIT PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A round-Robbins on the themes of scent, so-called "floral consciousness," and immortality - skipping through time and space, but offering a little old-fashioned storytelling charm along with the usual cute/hip doodling. In one of the two parallel plot-lines here, Robbins juggles the separate attempts of various parfumiers around the world to come up with a perfume (upon a jasmine base) that will outenchant any previous concoction: Madame Devalier in New Orleans is feverishly experimenting; so is her adopted daughter Priscilla in Seattle; and the megs-company LeFever is also hard at work in Paris. Meanwhile, in the other main plot, we follow King Alobar - a Dark Ages hero - through his global wanderings: he eventually reaches India, meeting a widow named Kudra; both of them are in flight from Death; and both eventually, through the direct intervention of the decrepit god Pan, actually achieve immortality - even learning how to capture the immortality-essence in bottled-liquid form. So ultimately, of course, these two plot-strands will link up - as Alobar time-travels up to the present, providing the evolutionary missing-link to "floral consciousness". . . and teaming up with a Timothy Learylike outlaw scientist, Dr. Wiggs Dannyboy, who adds a bit of new-age theory to Robbins' usual flower-power rhetoric. ("Philosophers have argued for centuries about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, but materialists have known all along that it depends on whether they are jitterbugging or dancing cheek to cheek.") As in all of Robbins' novels, there is much that's juvenile and insufferable here: terminally cute asides and many, many groaners - e.g., "a populace that was beginning to put Descartes before des horse." Still, the mundane/exotic enterprise of making perfume offers a rich basis for Robbins' half-credible, half-cartoonish explorations. And, thanks to its lively sweep through time and geography, this may be his most agreeable book ever: relaxed, readably sequential, goofily lyrical - with some feather-weight appeal for non-fans as well as the usual Robbins readership.

Book Three of the ELENIUM is fantasy on a truly epic scale, in which the Pandion Knight Sparhawk must finally use the power of the jewel. Aided by the goddess Aphrael, Sparhawk and his band of companions have recovered the magical jewel Bhelliom - the Sapphire Rose - from the cave of the troll-dwarf Ghwerig. Now they have the power to wake and cure Ehlana, the young Queen of Elenia. But while they were seeking Bhelliom, great forces of evil moved into the power vacuum left behind. The unholy triple alliance between Otha, degenerate sorcerer-king of the Zemochs, the renegade Pandion Knight Martel, and Annias, traitorous Primate of Cimmura, threatens to overrun all of Eosia. In returning to Cimmura to wake Ehlana, Sparhawk risks delivering the Sapphire Rose into the hands of his enemies, who will use it to give the evil god Azash dominion over the whole world. To stop them they may have to unleash the full power of the jewel, but no one can predict whether the world itself will survive such an event. THE SAPPHIRE ROSE is the gripping, brilliant conclusion to THE ELENIUM, a panoramic tale of a conflict between good and evil that envelops an entire continent.

Dictionary of Ancient Deities Oxford University Press Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Nothing reveals more about a civilization than the gods and goddesses it worshipped. For thousands of years humans have fashioned stories about divine beings to explain their most mysterious, terrifying, and exalted experiences. Today the names of many of these deities have fallen into obscurity. The Dictionary of Ancient Deities brings these gods and goddesses back to light. Here, in one superbly written volume, is every known divine being throughout recorded history, from Athena and Brahma to the evil demon king Ngworekara of the African Fan people and the Babylonian dream messenger Zaqar. With over 10,000 entries, The Dictionary of Ancient Deities is the most comprehensive reference of its kind, covering not only gods and goddesses, but also spirits, places, festivals, sacred texts and objects, heroes, monsters, demigods, and the plethora of fantastic mythical beasts that have populated the human imagination from time immemorial. The encyclopedia also includes many deities often missing from standard collections, notably from Inuit, Native American, and African cultures. Alphabetically arranged entries provide the name of each deity (with alternate spellings), followed by the tribe or culture that worshipped the deity. Most importantly, the entries--whether brief descriptions or longer essays--offer lucid and engaging explanations of the origins and functions of the god or goddess. With a comprehensive index and an extensive bibliography, The Dictionary of Ancient Deities is the best choice for anyone intrigued by the rich pantheon of divine beings that have mirrored the human psyche and shaped our earliest civilizations.

Shakespeare's Late Work Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Shakespeare's Late Work is a detailed reading of the plays written at the end of Shakespeare's career, centring on Pericles, Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale, and The Tempest. Unlike many previous studies it considers all the late work, including Henry VIII, The Two Noble Kinsmen, the revised Folio version of King Lear, and even what can be ascertained about the lost Cardenio. From this broadened canon emerge signs of a distinct identity for the late work. Lyne explores how Shakespeare sets great store in grand principles - faith in God, love of family, reverence for monarchs, and belief in theatrical representations of truth. However, there is also a ubiquitous and structuring irony whereby such principles are questioned and doubted. Audiences and readers are left with a difficult but empowering decision whether to believe, or to question, or to accommodate both faith and scepticism. Alongside this interest in the new and characteristically 'late' qualities of this phase in Shakespeare's career, Shakespeare's Late Work puts it in a wider cultural context. A chapter on the collaborations and broader dramatic relationships with John Fletcher and Thomas Middleton illuminates how Shakespeare's canon interacts with other writing of its time. A chapter on how the late work revisits and reconsiders themes from earlier plays shows that continuity needs to be remembered alongside novelty. Overall this is an introduction to the key works of this period which advances a new reading of them. They emerge as fascinating and dazzling explorations of their potential and their limitations.
