Three Day Series Book 1 The Darkness is the first book in a series that explores the three mysterious days between Jesus' death and resurrection. What happened in Heaven and in Sheol during these days? Why did Joseph bury Jesus, and what were Mary, Annas, Caiaphas, and the disciples doing while Jesus was dead? And what about that dark world of evil spirits; what were they up to while Jesus was gone? But most importantly, what was Jesus Himself accomplishing while the earth was poised between two covenants with God? This series explores it all. A dramatic re-enactment of history's most pivotal transition, this unexplored subject becomes an epic adventure that wisely informs. Introducing Christianity in an entertaining way, this series also unveils a few mysteries which are vital to the universal church. Deeply moving and creatively humorous, this series is a must read for anyone even remotely interested in the things of God. Samuel Compton has traveled and taught in the United States and is currently a full time author. A graduate of Virginia Tech, he and his wife, Jennie, live in Suffolk, Virginia where they enjoy their five children.

Piri Weepu’s story is one of the most fascinating New Zealand rugby stories ever told. Born into a strong rugby league family — Piri’s brother Billy actually played for the Kiwis — Piri has risen to the very pinnacle of rugby union, while at the same time never losing his great love of the 13-man code. At 28, and in the year of the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, Weepu was finally given his opportunity . . . . and didn’t he take it well. For years he had been in the shadows of Jimmy Cowan (not to mention a number of other first-choicers) but on the world stage, Piri stepped up to the mark and won the hearts of a nation. He kicked the goals for the All Blacks, he kicked for position and, in the absence of the incomparable Dan Carter, he ran the backline. His man of the match performance for the All Blacks in the quarter-final against Argentina and then another superb display against arch-rivals Australia in the semi-final cemented his place in New Zealand rugby folklore. This is more than a rugby story, though. This is a story of a little battler who has struggled with serious injury and fitness for a number of years, who has struggled to express himself because of an innate shyness, but who finally won over a nation on the greatest sporting stage.

Latinos have been part of the Hollywood film industry for more than 100 years, yet beyond the remarkable success of a few, their visibility and clout have generally not reflected their significance in American society. Worse, the Latino image has suffered from widespread stereotyping in film, and performers face unjustified constraints in the kinds of roles available to them. Decade by decade from 1960 onward, this book analyzes important films made by or about Latinos, details the careers of Latino performers and filmmakers of the time, and analyzes how film portrayals of Latino characters and subjects connect with political and social trends of each decade. It discusses the role of gender, social class, and ethnicity in film portrayals and provides an overview of the diverse and dynamic Latino community in the United States, while celebrating a substantial and enduring contribution to Hollywood film history.

Little Tommy is looking for a special hero. While visiting his grandparents, Tommy is entertained by their nightly bedtime stories. After a curious Tommy peppers his grandparents with questions during their stories, he soon realizes that God has the power to call two extraordinary people to be born in the same year and then watch them change the world in their own distinctive ways. Each evening, as his grandparents tell Tommy about amazing people who ascended to the pinnacle of success at the exact same time, the little boy learns about real-life heroes like Hakeem Abdul Olajuwon and Michael Jordan, who were born in the same year, started their NBA careers at the same time, and became Olympic gold medalists. As his grandparents tell one fascinating story after the other about pairs of people born in the same year that go on to excel in the same career, Tommy has no idea that the best story is yet to come. "Once Upon a Certain Year" is a collection of charming bedtime stories that illustrate that perhaps there are no coincidences in life, but instead, that Jesus may have more influence over a person's fate than we ever realized.

After a solar eclipse, nineteen people were found dead in a remote area of the California National Forest. They were lying in a circle, holding hands and wearing plastic fairy wings. Years later, on the other side of the country, no one in the southern city of Jefferson is concerned about fairies or fairy-worshiping suicide cults. Except for Candy. She might not have proof, but she’s damn sure it’s going to happen again. The problem is, Candy is a coke-dealing stripper and the only person who will listen to her is an alcoholic mall Santa named Hank, who’s only listening because, well…she’s hot. There are seven days until the next eclipse.

Cinematic Terror takes a uniquely long view of filmmakers' depiction of terrorism, examining how cinema has been a site of intense conflict between paramilitaries, state authorities and censors for well over a century. In the process, it takes us on a journey from the first Age of Terror that helped trigger World War One to the Global War on Terror that divides countries and families today. Tony Shaw looks beyond Hollywood to pinpoint important trends in the ways that film industries across Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East have defined terrorism down the decades. Drawing on a vast array of studio archives, government documentation, personal interviews and box office records, Shaw examines the mechanics of cinematic terrorism and challenges assumptions about the links between political violence and propaganda.

Whirlwind of African Insanity

Liberia, a small West African nation imploded in a civil war that began on December 24, 1989. By the time the war ended fourteen years later, more than 250,000 lives had been taken. Many people sought refuge in camps throughout West Africa. In the war, children were trained to become killing machines, and women and young girls were held as sex slaves. Charles Taylor, the main mastermind behind this rebellion, was elected President of Liberia in 1997. Liberians thought that his presidency would lead to the end of the civil war, but it only extended the war. Adding to the pressure, Taylor faced accusations of war crimes. He relinquished power in August 2003 and was escorted to Nigeria where he was subsequently arrested and taken to the International Criminal Court at The Hague. Whirlwind of African Insanity is not just my story. It resonates with the countless voices of children who suffer and die in wars about which they know nothing. The book also provides some of the reasons why Africa is and may forever remain plagued. It presents two arguments about the real causes of Africas disasters and is written on behalf of underprivileged children whose cries for help are drowned in oceans of selfish politics and whose lives are buried in the explosions of wars. It is also a story about survival in hellish conditions and optimism when there is nothing about which to be optimistic.
