Fleeing King Manasseh's tyranny, Joshua leads the faithful remnant to their new home in Egypt. But as years pass, Joshua's desire for vengeance becomes an obsession. Blinded by hatred, he makes rash decisions, placing his loved ones in jeopardy. Amid Joshua's turmoil comes an unexpected awakening of love--a love that burns so intensely it draws him from the dark inner seclusion where he often retreats. But what will it take for him to grasp the great love his Heavenly Father has for him...and for the chosen people of Judah? (Chronicles of the King Book 5)

"Did the Lord arrange this-or the devil?" The heart of Pastor David Campbell churns with this question when, standing in the misty rain on a jungle airstrip in Paraguay, he sees her-from his years past. What is she doing here? He never dreamed he would ever see her again. David had just come from America where, normally, a life of devotion to Jesus Christ would bring fulfillment and peace. But he has discovered living such a life in today's America can instead bring tragic legal and personal consequences. It is a crushed and discouraged pastor who finds himself on a strangely wondrous trip to an exotic land. How could he know that here he would find healing and heroism; and a love he thought he would never know again?

Chaucer Among the Gods

A description of Chaucer's adaptation of classical materials to various uses--comedy, tragedy, and allegory; theme, action, and character--this book is also an analysis of Chaucer's poetics. Chaucer's creative use of the classical past is shown as a central part of his virtuosity. The book begins with a general discussion of the medieval traditions of classical myth, showing how Chaucer made himself the first humanist of English literature--opening to England both the ancient world of Virgil, Ovid, and Lucan and also the contemporary perceptions of that world by such continental masters as Dante, Graunson, Boccaccio, and Froissart. Succeeding chapters move through the categories of Chaucer's aesthetic uses of classical materials in specific poems: brief allusions, adaptations of myth to moral allegory, references to places, and lampoons of classical divinities. Professor McCall concludes by contrasting Chaucer's "rhetorics of fragmentation and discontinuity" with those of modern writers. Today such rhetorics have a despairing or apocalyptic tone. For Chaucer they conveyed "patient acceptance of the world and one's own self."

Jesus Among Other Gods

You can't be friends with God if the God you believe in doesn't really exist. You can't depend on God if your God is a figment of your imagination. In a world full of gods, how do you know Jesus is real? You have probably heard things like: All religions lead to the same God. All faiths teach the same things. It doesn't matter what you believe-just that you believe sincerely. But Jesus said that: He alone is the way to God. He alone shows us the truth of who God is. He alone gives us life close to God. In this youth edition of Jesus Among Other Gods, Ravi Zacharias gives solid evidence as to why we should choose Jesus Christ as THE God among all other gods. Zacharias contrasts the truth of Jesus with the founders of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism, providing strong descriptions of each faith and solid defenses for the cause of Christ. In addition to the religion comparisons, the book answers questions such as: "What about all the hypocrites at church?" "How scientific is science?" "How can you best share what you believe?" and "Does the Bible teach reincarnation?" You can never be too young to learn how to defend your faith . . . and this book will tell you exactly how to do just that!

Proclus Alcibiades I

This translation and commentary is based on the Critical Text and Indices of Proclus: Commentary on the First Alcibiades of Plato, Amsterdam 1954, by L. G. Westerink. Index II has been of great help in the translation, and the commentary is much indebted to the critical apparatus. Dr. Westerink has also been kind enough to forward his views on the relatively few problems which the Greek text has presented. A further debt is owed to the review of Dr. Westerink's text by Prof. E. R. Dodds in GNOMON 1955 p. 164-1, chiefly for some references and some emendations to the Greek text. W. R. M. Lamb's Loeb translation of Alcibiades I has helped considerably in construing the lemmata, which Signor Antonio Carlini has found to have been inserted by a later hand from a Plato MSS. of the W family. Evidence for this is their discrepancy with the text as read in the main body of the commentary (d. Studi Classici e Orientali, vol. x, Pisa 1961). On the personal side, the whole work has received the benefit of constant advice from Prof. A. H. Armstrong. It was he who first suggested the undertaking, and he has been kind enough to read through the translation and commentary, making many corrections and helpful suggestions. In particular lowe him the parallels with Plotinus and thanks for a Socratic patience in my more obtuse moments.

Jesus Among Other Gods: In his most important work to date, apologetics scholar and popular speaker Ravi Zacharias shows how the blueprint for life and death itself is found in a true understanding of Jesus. With a simple yet penetrating style, Zacharias uses rich illustrations to celebrate the power of Jesus Christ to transform lives.Jesus Among Other Godscontrasts the truth of Jesus with founders of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism, strengthening believers and compelling them to share their faith with our post-modern world. Deliver Us From Evil: With clarity and insight, Zacharias shows how many of today's most popular ideas, thoughts, and beliefs are vandalizing our culture. He shows how it is there, "in the depths of our innermost being, That the work of God changes what we want to do. This is not an ethical system calling us to civility. This is the transforming work of the grace of God, who calls us His children." He shows how: Secularization has led us to a loss of shame, generating evil even against those we love Pluralization has led us to a loss of reason, generating evil toward those we choose to hate Privatization has led us to loss of meaning, generating evil against ourselves

Full colored illustrated book about the Trinity in the Old Testament. The unfolding plan of a caring God of creation who has not left us without witness nor without a teaching guide. The overall plan of God is first revealed in God's naming of the pre-flood patriarchs. Although the witnesses tell of the glory that they see and hear of the trinity, a physical description is not given by them. Since the Godhead is Spirit without our created flesh and blood, the illustrator draws from visions given in Daniel and Revelation.

In this groundbreaking work, Claude Calame argues that the songs sung by choruses of young girls in ancient Greek poetry are more than literary texts; rather, they functioned as initiatory rituals in Greek cult practices. Using semiotic and anthropologic theory, Calame reconstructs the religious and social institutions surrounding the songs, demonstrating their function in an aesthetic education that permitted the young girls to achieve the stature of womanhood and to be integrated into the adult civic community. This first English edition includes an updated bibliography.

Earth and Gods is an attempt to introduce the reader to Heidegger's fully developed philosophy. The title Earth and Gods gives an im pression of not being a general study of Heidegger's philosophy. However, this is not true - the earth and the gods are fundamental ontological symbols of his fully developed philosophy, namely, his third and final phase of thought. This phase repeats the problems of both preceding phases in a fuller and more developed manner; hence, it implies them. The two preceding phases are the phase of Dasein and the phase of Being. These two phases are a natural flow of fundamental problems which reach their final formation and development in the phase of earth and gods. Dasein (the first phase) leads to Being, and Being (the second phase) bursts into fundamental ontological powers of Being (Seinsmiichte) which are earth and sky, gods and mortals (the third phase). Since earth is unthinkable without sky and since gods are gods in the world of mortals - of men, the title Earth and Gods is an abbreviation of these four fundamental powers of Being. Hence, an investigation of earth and gods is an attempt to present Heidegger's philosophy as a whole. Such a presentation provides the reader with the background necessary for a more adequate and efficient understanding of the writings of Heidegger himself. Thus, Earth and Gods may rightly be considered an introduction to Hei degger's philosophy.
