Many people go through very difficult times in life. The author documents the journey through his dark night of the soul. The poetry paints vivid word pictures with brutally honest feelings about what he is experiencing. He does not pretend to be something he is not. He merely writes from the darkness as he struggles to find the light. As the book progresses, the light at the end of the tunnel becomes apparent. He becomes, in fact, what he always thought he was in theory. This book is not a light read, but it is very easy to read.

ADULT CHRISTIAN MEN ONLY! (Please order this ONLY AFTER having read "God Becomes Man.") Our adversary in the Middle East is using their religion as a military ordnance. Our secular government cannot dabble in religious matters. But the Constitution does not protect hostile ordnance in a foreign war, so We the People are free to address the religious questions. What horrid conditions in ancient Mecca compelled Muhammad to act and to speak so vehemently while advancing a new faith, that today's Muslim thugs can reference him as their highest authority? Are they misrepresenting their Prophet to us and to their own people? If Muhammad were not so desperate to put a stop to the horrid situation in Mecca, would he have preferred to advance Christianity? In order to form alliances with the neighboring cities to conquer his own hometown and his own tribe, how did Muhammad have to compromise his own faith? Muhammad was desperately disgusted, and as you read this, you will know how he felt.

In an age that grants plausibility to every idea and certainty to none... WHAT CAN YOU BELIEVE? If you've ever wandered a mall, browsed a bookstore, or explored the Internet, you've seen the evidence: We live in a culture desperately searching for meaning. Like the ancient Greeks, we are haunted by questions. Where did this world come from? Why am I here? As individuals and as a society, we are restless, longing for something, or someone, to believe in. There are perhaps millions of potential answers—but only one truth that wholly explains, resolves, and offers hope for the plight of man. Of this life-giving message, Peter, the disciple of Jesus Christ, wrote: "Even angels long to look into these things." Within these pages, author Alistair Begg explores "these things" more fully, offering fresh insights into the mystery and power of the gospel account and presenting a convincing argument to all those seeking answers to the meaning of life.

In the hearts of all mankind, of whatever race or station in life, there -. are inexpressible longings for something they do not now possess. This longing is implanted in the very constitution of man by a merciful God, that man may not be satisfied with his present conditions or attainments, whether bad, or good, or better. God desires that the human shallseek the best, and find it to the eternal blessing of his soul. Satan, by wily scheme and craft, has perverted these longings of the human heart. He makes men believe that this desire may be satisfied by pleasure, by wealth, by-ease, by fame, by power; but those who have been thus deceived by him (and they number myriads) find all these things pall upon the sense, leaving the soul as barren and unsatisfied as before. It is God's design that this longing of the human heart should lead to the One, who alone is able to satisfy it. The desire is of Him that it may lead to Him, the fullness and fulfillment of that desire. That fullness is found in Jesus the Christ, the Son of the Eternal God. "Forit was the good pleasure of the Father that in Him should all the fullness dwell;" "for in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily." And it is also true that "in Him ye are made full" with respect to every desire divinely implanted and normally followed. Haggai calls Him "the Desire of all nations," and we may well call Him "the Desire of all ages," even as He is "the King of ages." It is the purpose of this book to set forth Jesus Christ as the One in whom every longing may be satisfied. There is many a "Life of Christ" written, excellent, books, large funds of information, elaborate 'essays on chronology and contemporaneous history, customs, and events, with much of the teaching and many glimpses of the many-sided life of Jesus of Nazareth. Yet it may be truly.said, "The half has never been told." It is not, however, the purpose of this work to set forth a harmony of the Gospels, or even to give in stricdy chronological order the important events and wonderful Iessons of the life of Christ; its purpose is to present the love of God as revealed in His Son, the divine beauty of life of Christ, of which a1l may partake,and not to satisfy the desires of the .merely curious nor the questionings of critics. But even as . the attraetl.on of His own goodness of character Jesus drew His disciples unto himself, and his personal presence by His sympathetic touch and feeling in all their infirmities and needs, and by his constantassocaition, transformed their characters from the erathly to the heavenly, from the selfish to the sacrificing, from the small hearted ignorance and prejudice to largehearted knowledge and profound love for soulsof all nations and races, even so it is the purpose of this book so to presentthe blessed Redeemer as to helpthe readerto come to Him face to face, herat to heart, and find in Him even as did the diciples of old, Jesus the Mighty One, who saves "ot the uttermost," and transforms to HIs own divine image all of those who come unto God by Him. Yet how impossibleit is to revealHis life! It is like attemptingto putupos canvas the livingrainbow; into charaters of black and white the sweetest music.

The Vietnam War . . . Nixon . . . Kent State . . . The late 1960s and early 1970s were a time of total turmoil in America-the country was being torn apart by a war most people didn't support, young men were being taken away by the draft, and racial tensions were high. Nowhere was this turmoil more evident than on college campuses, the epicenters of the protest movement. The uncertain times presented a challenge to two of the greatest football coaches of all time. Woody Hayes, the legendary archconservative coach of Ohio State, feared for the future of America. His protégé and rival, Bo Schembechler of the University of Michigan, didn't want to be bothered by these "distractions." Hayes worshipped General George S. Patton and was friends with President Richard Nixon. Schembechler befriended President Gerald Ford, a former captain and team MVP for the Wolverines. In this enthralling book, Michael Rosenberg dramatically weaves the campus unrest and political upheaval into the story of Hayes and Schembechler. Their rivalry began with Schembechler arriving in protest-heavy Ann Arbor, Michigan, at the height of the Vietnam War. It ended with Hayes wondering what had happened to his country. War As They Knew It is a sobering and fascinating look at two iconic coaches and a different generation.

What did Jesus say about his birth in a manger attended by wisemen and angels? How did he describe his seat at Gods right hand on a celestial throne? Did he really claim to be Gods only son to be worshiped as one third of a three headed Deity? This book is destined to become one of the many pathways to help revitalize Christianity. Compelling insights, meaningful resources and important revelations of over 100 well-known Jesus scholars, authors and learned professors of religion from around the world are provided. This is not, however, a theological discourse for scholarly debate. It is written by a Christian layman for the everyday normal church attendees who are searching, thinking, curious and open to newer and deeper loving relationships with God and Jesus. Much of the knowledge and thinking about the essence of what Jesus taught about the Kingdom of God, (Realm of the Spirit) is explored. The book expands the readers awareness of new ways to see what Jesus said about Gods love and its potential for each person. Hopefully church people who are developing doubts about their childhood teachings will find new insights in the teachings of Jesus within the Christian Church.

While revealing a glimpse into all those who surrounded her on her path to achieving her professional accomplishments, Judy reminds all of us that we are never alone on our journeys through life as we bravely face obstacles, strive for success, and learn the value of unconditional love. Gosh, Mom! Don’t They Know You’re Not Anybody? shares true stories from a professional singer as she laughed, loved, and followed her dream.
