The Devil's Prophet is the first book of the Devil trilogy by Dutch author Adrian Stone. Zabatha, leader and prophet of the Cataris Cult, and most loyal servant of the forbidden god Cataris, discovers in young Marak an exceptional talent for magic. In Carolia, priests and monks can channel their gods' energies and convert them into magic. The prophet would like nothing better than to make Marak his disciple, for having the boy as their pawn could grant the Catarists total domination. Poor Marak is unaware. Worse, he is scarred for life in a way that sets him apart as an adherent of the dreaded Catarists. Fortunately, support comes from an unexpected corner. A high priestess named Verina stands up for Marak and persuades him to undergo the Test, to find out how great his talent really is. This is not without consequence. Against his will, Marak will play a vital part in the game the religious fanatic Zabatha is playing with the world... 'Adrian Stone has created an interesting fantasy world, reminiscent of the Dark Ages. In this world magic is not simply a given, and Stone's thrilling, well-built story benefits from that.' Dutch Library Service (NBD Biblion) about Devil's Prophet. Adrian Stone is the pseudonym for Ad van Tiggelen (1958). Like no other, Stone possesses the literary qualities to encapsulate complicated matters such as religion and history in a compellingly thrilling, classically modelled fantasy story.

This book is written to show why the tempter, called the serpent, is junior to Jesus and mankind, . That is, the tempter cannot usurp authority over us because the Lord created mankind before the tempter. Yet above all our seniority that the Lord has given us is the seniority of Jesus, the superpower of Jesus and the super-authority that Jesus holds above the tempter. This book is also written to highlight Biblical principles that refute many of the erroneous teachings relative to the tempter. These teachings are out of line with God's point of view; and I do understand that some of these teachings were learned from past generations

From the very infancy of the film industry, filmmakers have relied heavily upon literature as the foundation for their movie material. Well-known literary works such as Dickens's ""A Christmas Carol"" and Hawthorne's ""The Scarlet Letter"" were adapted to film in the era, as were such books as Thomas Dixon's Jr.'s ""The Klansman"" basis for the film ""Birth of a Nation"". In recent years, Nick Hornsby's ""About a Boy"" and each of Helen Fielding's ""Bridget Jones's Diary"" novels were the basis for popular movies bearing the same names. A guide to English-language works that have been adapted as theatrical and television films, this volume includes books (both fiction and non-fiction), short stories, newspaper and magazine articles and poems. Entries are arranged alphabetically by literary title with cross-listings for films made under different titles. Each entry includes the original works title, author, year of first publication, literary prizes, and a brief plot summary. Information on film adaptation(s) of the work, including adaptation titles, director, screenwriter, principal cast and the names of the characters they portray, major awards, and availability in the most common formats (DVD, VHS) is also offered.

This WWII history presents a vivid chronicle of the British Army’s 9th Parachute Battalion and their operations in Normandy based on survivor interviews. The first hours and days following the Allied invasion of Normandy were perhaps the most crucial moment of the Second World War. The Day The Devils Dropped In examines the pivotal role played by the 9th Battalion of the Parachute Regiment in the first week of the landings. These brave British soldiers were tasked with neutralizing the mighty Merville Battery, and capturing Le Plein and the Chateau St. Côme on the Breville Ridge. Failure by to achieve any of these objectives could have meant disaster for Operation Overlord—and catastrophe for the Allied war effort. In his quest to uncover what transpired in the early days of the landings, historian Neil Barber tracked down and interviewed surviving participants in the operation. In The Day the Devils Dropped In, he presents the full story, largely in the very words of those who lived through the experience. Enhanced by wartime photographs throughout, this revealing chronicle is a fine tribute to those whose contribution must never be forgotten.
