Special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine take on a criminal mastermind in the next captivating thriller in the New York Times bestselling A Brit in the FBI series. “Coulter and Ellison smoothly mix contemporary political issues with eerie historical legend in this fast-paced” (Publishers Weekly) thriller. The mystery: shocking. When several major political figures die mysteriously, officials blame their deaths on natural causes. However, when a small drone is spotted at the scene of the most recent death, it quickly becomes clear to FBI agents Nicholas and Michaela that there’s more to this mystery than meets the eye. The key: indecipherable. Dr. Isabella Marin is a language expert, and she’s dedicated her entire life to researching an ancient text that has long been considered indecipherable…that is, until now. When it becomes clear that there’s an alarming pattern between the text and the recent deaths, she teams up with the FBI to find the link. It’s clear that the manuscript is the key to catching the killer. But how? The case: nearly impossible. When Nicholas and Michaela uncover plans for a devastating attack on London, they must race against the clock to stop the killer before it’s too late. Not only are they in danger of losing the manuscript—an object of extreme value—but they’re also at risk of losing more innocent lives: including their own. With their signature heart-pounding tension and suspense, Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison's The Sixth Day is “another amazing entry in this ongoing series” (Associated Press).

There is such excitement and joy in the poems of Laura Fargas—a rush to embrace the earth, an exuberant "giddy greed" for life. "I like the voice, the spirit I find in her poems," says Walter McDonald. "She accepts and celebrates the rich possibilities and, even with the risks and limitations of all, insists that living on this earth is splendid." Grass the Fine Body Hairs of Earth My shorthand for it is passion is holy We can live inside the lilies-of-the-field text. Watching gulls startle off the ground as if hundreds of lashing wings are our native air. Breathe in wings, exhale speckled orange wildflowers. eyes, elbows, tears: suns, mountains, rivers. Lovemaking rings with hosannas. "Through the doors of her poems the reader enters into a multifaceted and clarified knowledge—of self, of others, of this widely inhabited and passionate earth."—Jane Hirshfield "Visceral beauty with a calm, cool center, the work of a mature and gifted poet . . ."—Toi Derricotte Between Angels Between the angels who peel our hearts and the ones gnawing steadily inward comes the stolid oath that holds us fast to the world of apple and fire. And the heart wants something to be kind to, even if only a fish to sprinkle crumbs on the water for once or twice a day. I like it when the sky says where have you been? Housed in a fist, I explain, stuck inside somebody's movie. Have I missed too many clouds to ever catch up? ("I like it when")

After the Sixth Day tells the story of one spirit living in a world that it's trying to understand. At some point on the journey, a longing is awakened for another world that feels both familiar and unknown. This story is uniquely told through poetry and prose with sincere and powerful emotion. Trinka's ""notes"" reveal what we all soon realize; through interaction with the world, the spirit is tested, awakened and strengthened. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day. {Genesis 1:27,31 NKJV}

Lucifer, aggravated once hearing the meaning of the mystery of the sixth day, destroys much of the life that was created in the fifth day. Satan and Azazel, refusing to become servants, were hurled to Earth so they may learn the meaning of the Spirit of God. Later, Azazel and the Grigori declare war against God, man and Satan. The Grigori took to themselves women and had children that became Giants known as the Nephilim. They were given the name Nephilim because of the evil and hardship they inflicted on people, animals and Earth. Their evil spirits have caused a curse to be placed on the Earth, and this curse still exists to this day.

Carl Gutherz (1844-1907), a Memphis artist of international note, lived and worked in the Mississippi Valley in the second half of the nineteenth century. After training at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, he began his career as an artist and teacher in St. Louis, helping establish the St. Louis School and Museum of Fine Arts. He later returned to Paris, where he attended the Académie Julian and showed annually in the Paris Salon for over ten years. He spent the last years of his life in Washington, D.C., and participated in the American mural movement, which included executing a series of ceiling panels for the Library of Congress. At the height of his career in France, Gutherz produced large-scale works that were a synthesis of Christian imagery and symbolist concepts. In America, he produced portraits, Civil War canvases, and landscapes that reflect the culture and history of the mid-South and the Mississippi Valley. Carl Gutherz: Poetic Vision and Academic Ideals contains a biography and a series of essays that explore the relationship between Gutherz's work and his personal experiences, his philosophical beliefs, and his academic training. Based largely on the extensive collection of artwork, journals, and archival material in the collection of the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, it offers an overview of Gutherz's activities in Memphis, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C., and his achievements as an expatriate painter in France.

What started out as a seemingly simple but odd murder and dismemberment on a subway train - the perfect case for a young rookie to make a name for himself - quickly spiraled into a rapid-fire string of brutal murders that plagued the city relentlessly for weeks. To complicate matters for Matt as he struggles to navigate his way through the mental world of a demented killer, he's still struggling to navigate his own life and limited contact with his daughter after his recent divorce. And always lurking just below the surface is Matt's lifelong battle to cope with the death of his identical twin brother when they were teenagers. Then, just as suddenly as the murders started, they stop. But things are far from over, for the end of the killing spree is really only the first day of the killer's true plan.

This is the extended and annotated edition including * an extensive biographical annotation about the author and his life In any commentary on a portion of the Old Testament by a writer unacquainted with Hebrew, exact criticism, and freedom from mistake, must not be expected. But the Psalms have been so in the mouth and in the heart of God’s people in all languages, that it has been necessary often to find an explanation suitable to imperfect translations. And no doubt it is intended that we should use such explanations for the purpose of edification, when we are unable to be more accurate, though in proving doctrine it is necessary always to remember and allow for any want of acquaintance with the original, or uncertainty with respect to its actual meaning. However, the main scope and bearing of the text is rarely affected by such points as vary in different translations, and the analogy of the faith is sufficient to prevent a Catholic 4 mind from adopting any error in consequence of a text seeming to bear a heterodox meaning. Perhaps the errors of translation in the existing versions may have led the Fathers to adopt rules of interpretation ranging too far from the simple and literal; but having such translations, they could hardly use them otherwise. Meanwhile St. Augustin will be found to excel in the intense apprehension of those great truths which pervade the whole of Sacred Writ, and in the vivid and powerful exposition of what bears upon them. It is hardly possible to read his practical and forcible applications of Holy Scripture, without feeling those truths by the faith of which we ought to live brought home to the heart in a wonderful manner. His was a mind that strove earnestly to solve the great problems of human life, and after exhausting the resources, and discovering the emptiness, of erroneous systems, found truth and rest at last in Catholic Christianity, in the religion of the Bible as expounded by St. Ambrose. And though we must look to his Confessions for the full view of all his cravings after real good, and their ultimate satisfaction, yet throughout his works we have the benefit of the earnestness with which he sought to feed on the “sincere milk of the word.”
