The Bibles Most Fascinating People by Reader's DigestFrom $19.5
The Bible's impact on world civilization, most particularly on Western cultures, is both foundational and ongoing. The Bible's Most Fascinating People tells the stories of 100 of the most important and interesting personalities that appear within the Bible's pages. The short and easy-to-digest articles are designed to appeal equally to those who know little about the Bible and to those who have a deep familiarity with it. Encompassing characters from both the Old and New Testaments, the stories are set within a framework of family relationships that run throughout the Bible. Family trees illustrate the relationships between the people in the various stories, providing you with a clear sense of the underlying historical and cultural matrix out of which the bible grew.About the Author Robin P. Nettelhorst is the founder and academic vice president of the Quartz Hill School of Theology, where he also serves as professor of Bible and biblical languages. He completed graduate studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he majored in ancient Semetic languages. While a student, he spent two summers working on a kibbutz in Israel. In addition to many academic articles, he is the author of several science-fiction novels.
Forming Intentional Disciples by Sherry A. WeddellFrom $25.9
How can we transmit a living, personal Catholic faith to future generations? By coming to know Jesus Christ, and following him as his disciples. These are times of immense challenge and immense opportunity for the Catholic Church. Consider these statistics for the United States: • Only 30 percent of Americans who were raised Catholic are still practicing. • Fully 10 percent of all adults in America are ex-Catholics. • The number of marriages celebrated in the Church decreased dramatically, by nearly 60 percent, between 1972 and 2010. • Only 60 percent of Catholics believe in a personal God. If the Church is to reverse these trends, the evangelizers must first be evangelized-in other words, Catholics-in-the-pew must make a conscious choice to know and follow Jesus before they can draw others to him. This work of discipleship lies at the heart of Forming Intentional Disciples, a book designed to help Church leaders, parish staff and all Catholics transform parish life from within. Drawing upon her fifteen years of experience with the Catherine of Siena Institute, Sherry Weddell leads readers through steps that will help Catholics enter more deeply into a relationship with God and the river of apostolic creativity, charisms, and vocation that flow from that relationship for the sake of the Church and the world. Learn about the five thresholds of postmodern conversion, how to open a conversation about faith and belief, how to ask thought-provoking questions and establish an atmosphere of trust, when to tell the Great Story of Jesus, how to help someone respond to God's call to intentional discipleship, and much more. And be prepared for conversion because when life at the parish level changes, the life of the whole Church will change.
Law & Disorder by John DouglasFrom $15.25
"Fascinating." --Douglas PrestonJohn Douglas is. . ."The FBI's pioneer and master of investigative profiling." -Patricia Cornwell"At his best describing terrible crimes." -Houston Chronicle"A real genius." -Entertainment Weekly"At the top of his form." -James PattersonIt is mankind's most abominable crime: murder. No one is better acquainted with the subject and its wrenching challenges than John Douglas, the FBI's pioneer of criminal profiling, and the model for Agent Jack Crawford inThe Silence of the Lambs. In this provocative and deeply personal book, the most prominent criminal investigator of our time offers a rare look into the workings not only of the justice system--but of his own heart and mind. Writing with award-winning partner Mark Olshaker, Douglas opens up about his most notorious and baffling cases--and shows what it's like to confront evil in its most monstrous form."Douglas can claim a rare authenticity regarding the evil that men do." --Kirkus Reviews"A fascinating and, at times, graphic tour of the criminal mind." --Library JournalIncludes dramatic photos
Devil in the Grove by Gilbert KingFrom $6.75
Arguably the most important American lawyer of the twentieth century, Thurgood Marshall was on the verge of bringing the landmark suit Brown v. Board of Education before the U.S. Supreme Court when he became embroiled in a case that threatened to change the course of the civil rights movement and cost him his life. In 1949, Florida's orange industry was booming, and citrus barons got rich on the backs of cheap Jim Crow labor with the help of Sheriff Willis V. McCall, who ruled Lake County with murderous resolve. When a white seventeen-year-old girl cried rape, McCall pursued four young blacks who dared envision a future for themselves beyond the groves. The Ku Klux Klan joined the hunt, hell-bent on lynching the men who came to be known as "the Groveland Boys." Associates thought it was suicidal for Marshall to wade into the "Florida Terror," but the young lawyer would not shrink from the fight despite continuous death threats against him. Drawing on a wealth of never-before-published material, including the FBI's unredacted Groveland case files, as well as unprecedented access to the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund files, Gilbert King shines new light on this remarkable civil rights crusader. About the Author Gilbert King has written about U.S. Supreme Court history for the New York Times and the Washington Post, and is a featured contributor to Smithsonian magazine's history blog, Past Imperfect. He is the author of The Execution of Willie Francis: Race, Murder, and the Search for Justice in the American South. He lives in New York City with his wife and two daughters.

Life: 100 People Who Changed the World by Robert SullivanFrom $16.9
Religious and political leaders, artists, scientists, and adventurers are all represented in these pages - cultural icons of the greatest fame and obscurities that will surprise the reader. Albert Einstein is here, of course, and so is Madame Curie. Crucial issues of race are examined in the lives of not only Rosa Parks and Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama, but of Jesse Owens and Jackie Robinson and Muhammad Ali. Certainly Abraham Lincoln and George Washington were the indispensable men. But what of Thomas Paine, Igor Stravinsky, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Walt Disney, Rachel Carson, Steve Jobs, and Steve Wozniak? This is a book of vibrant history, and it is also a book that is fun of fun-fun facts, fun tidbits, fun arguments, fun and rarely seen pictures. It is also a smart book that will appeal to the inquisitive school kid as much as to his or her parents.
Statius' Thebaid and the Poetics of Civil War by Charles McNelisFrom $276.25
This study focuses on ways in which Statius' epic Thebaid, a poem about the civil war between Oedipus' sons Eteocles and Polynices, reflects the theme of internal discord in its narrative strategies. At the same time that Statius reworks the Homeric and Virgilian epic traditions, he engages with Hellenistic poetic ideals as exemplified by Callimachus and the Roman Callimachean poets, especially Ovid. The result is a tension between the impulse towards the generic expectations of warfare and the desire for delay and postponement of such conflict. Ultimately, Statius adheres to the mythic paradigm of the mutual fratricide, but he continues to employ competing strategies that call attention to the fictive nature of any project of closure and conciliation. In the process, the poem offers a new mode of epic closure that emphasises individual means of resolution.
Generations by William StraussFrom $28.25
Hailed by national leaders as politically diverse as former Vice President Al Gore and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, "Generations" has been heralded by reviewers as a brilliant, if somewhat unsettling, reassessment of where America is heading.William Strauss and Neil Howe posit the history of America as a succession of generational biographies, beginning in 1584 and encompassing every-one through the children of today. Their bold theory is that each generation belongs to one of four types, and that these types repeat sequentially in a fixed pattern. The vision of "Generations" allows us to plot a recurring cycle in American history -- a cycle of spiritual awakenings and secular crises -- from the founding colonists through the present day and well into this millenium."Generations" is at once a refreshing historical narrative and a thrilling intuitive leap that reorders not only our history books but also our expectations for the twenty-first century.
The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy by Manly P. HallFrom $28.25

It also includes a 8-page colour insert. It is a reprint of the text and selected illustrations from the H. S. Crocker Company, Inc., San Francisco, 1928 edition.
Unmanned by William M. ArkinFrom $41.5
UNMANNED is an in-depth examination of why seemingly successful wars never seem to end. The problem centres on drones, now accumulated in the thousands, the front end of a spying and killing machine that is disconnected from either security or safety.Drones, however, are only part of the problem. William Arkin shows that security is actually undermined by an impulse to gather as much data as possible, the appetite and the theory both skewed towards the notion that no amount is too much. And yet the very endeavour of putting fewer human in potential danger places everyone in greater danger. Wars officially end, but the Data Machine lives on forever.Throughout his career, Arkin has exposed powerful secrets of so-called national security and intelligence. Now he continues that tradition. The most alarming book about warfare in years, UNMANNED is essential reading for anyone who cares about the future of mankind.
