Open The Fisherman’s Wife and you enter the world of first-century Capernaum on the Sea of Galilee. This is the hometown of St. Peter’s wife. What was it like to be a Jewish woman married to a man who leaves home for long stretches of time to follow Jesus, a controversial preacher with mysterious powers? Through The Fisherman’s Wife you experience the unusual life of Peter’s wife vicariously. In Capernaum you meet not only impetuous Peter, but the tempestuous Zebedee brothers and other apostles, persons Jesus healed, Mary, and the Lord himself. People in the Bible spring to life as their stories are told through the eyes of St. Peter’s wife. At first she regards Jesus as a rival for her husband’s affections. As she transforms from a doubter into a fervent disciple, you are treated to a personal and unique view not only of Peter but of Jesus—his words and actions culminating in his death and rising. By the time you are finished reading, you will feel as though you know the people who walk through the Bible at the time of Jesus. From then on, hearing and reading their stories in Scripture will never be the same. Kathleen Glavich has authored numerous books on the Bible for all ages and was privileged to visit the Holy Land. From the time she was a preteen, she has loved fiction books about Bible characters. She lives in Cleveland, Ohio, and ventures out to give talks on Scripture, even as far away as Dubai.

There are 3 experiences of Swamy Vivekananda, stories of Akbar’s confidante Birbal and that another Court Jester (Shrewd way to settle usurious loans) Poetic justice to an errant Prince. If a bag of soil is heavy how about those of the arrogated lands? The focus is on narration with the intention of imparting English language skills, enhancing word power and even style of presentation and inculcating the reading habit. What is lacking is the reading material in English for students whose mother tongue is other than English. The desire to read is being encouraged by narrating stories from familiar background so that the reader need not labour to understand the contents and also the language simultaneously. The latter is made easier through known or familiar stories. Intention to emphasize is to provide easily understood narratives to help the reader to acquire proficiency in English and go forward in enhancing one’s language skills.

From the household cat to horses that can fly, a surprisingly wide range of animals feature in religions and mythologies all across the world. The same animal can take on different roles: the raven can be a symbol of evil, a harbinger of death, a wise messenger or a shape-changing trickster. In Norse mythology, Odin's magical ravens perch on his shoulders and bring him news. This compendium draws upon religious texts and myths to explore the ways sacred traditions use animal images, themes and associations in rituals, ceremonies, texts, myths, literature and folklore across the world. Sections are organized by the main animal classifications such as mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians and insects. Each chapter covers one significant grouping (such as dogs, cats or horses), first describing an animal scientifically and then detailing the mythological attributes. Numerous examples cite texts or myths. A final section covers animal hybrids, animal monsters and mythical animals as well as stars, constellations and Zodiac symbols. An appendix describes basic details of the religions and mythologies covered. A glossary defines uncommon religious terms and explains scientific animal names.

The Village Gates Are Closed

A group of free spirited young men and women were lucky enough to experience paradise on earth. The book presents vignettes of adventure in the daily lives of the fishermen and scuba divers. A life of sun, sand and sea, away from money worries and the pressure of structured society. Instead, this life was guided by impulses, acceptance, youth and a lot of hormones. This humorous and sometimes touching story tells of the Israelis, Bedouins and foreigners in the Sinai Desert during the heady years from 1971 to 1982, when the Sinai was then evacuated and returned to the Egyptians. Danny Endlich wrote The Village Gates are closed to capture the stories which floated about for 30 years amongst the community of these Sinai people, now dispersed around the world. A spoonful of that taste is captured in this new book. The author tells these stories from the point of view of the twenty-something Israeli man he used to be, writing in English, although it is not his native tongue.
