HMS Conqueror is Britain's most famous submarine. It is the only sub since World War Two to have sunk an enemy ship. Conqueror's sinking of the Argentine cruiser Belgrano made inevitable an all-out war over the future of the Falkland Islands, and sparked off one of the most controversial episodes of twentieth century politics. The controversy was fuelled by a war-diary kept by an officer on board HMS Conqueror, and as a young TV producer in the 1980s Stuart Prebble scooped the world by locating the diary's author and getting his story on the record. But in the course of uncovering his Falklands story, Stuart Prebble also learned a military secret which could have come straight out of a Cold War thriller. It involved the Top Secret activities of the Conqueror in the months before and after the Falklands War. Prebble has waited for thirty years to tell his story. It is a story of incredible courage and derring-do, of men who put their lives on the line and were never allowed to tell what they had done. This story, buried under layers of official secrecy for three decades, is one of Britain's great military success stories and can now finally be told.

Many people are curious about the existence of secret societies which claim to hold arcane religious or esoteric knowledge and pass it down through the generations via selected adepts. Classic Masonic writers including William Preston, Robert Gould, JSM Ward, AE Waite and WL Wilmshurst have written about secret traditions connected to the Temple of Sion. Each has different ideas about how mystical knowledge came into Freemasonry. Some say that the Charter of Larmenius reveals an underground line of Knight Templar Grand Masters who survived down to the nineteenth century. All agree there is a Secret Lodge or House of Adepts who continue to teach "true" knowledge of the ancient mysteries and that The Craft transmits beliefs linked to the Earls of Rosslyn, the Knights Templar, and Lodge Mother Kilwinning. Masonic expert Robert Lomas has collected together this thread of belief from old Masonic writers and rewritten it in modern English to make the ideas accessible to modern readers.

Son of God, Son of Man is a reflection on the gospels of St. Mark and St. Luke that, like a diptych icon, presents two complementary images of Jesus as the New Joshua and the New Temple. The entire panorama of Israels history after the Exodus, from the entry into the Promised Land to the rebuilding of the Temple after the Babylonian Exile, is thus encapsulated in the life of Christ. This unique work builds on the authors previous commentaries on the gospels of John and Matthew, which portrayed Jesus as the New Genesis and the New Moses. The Second Vatican Council called on Catholics to read the Bible in the same spirit in which it was written. Pope Benedict has led the way into a genuinely post-critical scholarship that respects the many levels of meaning present in the sacred books. Eduardo Olaguer has followed the guidance of tradition and the leadership of the Pope in writing Gospel commentaries that take account of modern scholarship even as they reveal the depths of the divine Word. By connecting each passage of Scripture with others in both Old and New testament, he reads the Bible as the Church Fathers did, seeing the unity that comes from the Spirit working through the human authors and the events they describe. Full of extraordinary insights, this is the commentary that many people have been waiting for. -Stratford Caldecott Editor of Second Spring
