Leaves from the Garden of Eden - Howard Schwartz Preview:

In Leaves from the Garden of Eden, Howard Schwartz, a three-time winner of the National Jewish Book Award, has gathered together one hundred of the most astonishing and luminous stories from Jewish folk tradition. Just as Schwartz's award-winning book Tree of Souls collected the essential myths of Jewish tradition, Leaves from the Garden of Eden collects one hundred essential Jewish tales. As imaginative as the Arabian Nights, these stories invoke enchanted worlds, demonic realms, and mystical experiences. The four most popular types of Jewish tales are gathered here--fairy tales, folktales, supernatural tales, and mystical tales--taking readers on heavenly journeys, lifelong quests, and descents to the underworld. There is a dybbuk lurking in a well, a book that comes to life, and a world where Lilith, the Queen of Demons, seduces the unsuspecting. Here too are Jewish versions of many of the best-known tales, including "Cinderella," "Snow White," and "Rapunzel." Schwartz's retelling of one of these stories, "The Finger," inspired Tim Burton's film Corpse Bride..

I See An Angel - Rose Mary Luke Preview:

This book offers the reader a precise and rare opportunity to explore an extraordinary spiritual experience. It is an introduction into a heavenly event that began with the appearance of an Angel. Most importantly, this is a testament to why the Angel appeared to Rose Mary in the hospital on October 7, 2011. What is very distinctive about this book is the author endeavors to convey to the reader a detailed chronicle of this glorious event that she personally witnessed. It is unlike any other book previously written because of the appearance of the Angel and the profound message conveyed to Rose Mary by the Angel through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Angel said to her, "I bring you a message. Tell them it is almost time." This message contains only six words, but the impact of these words will prove to be of great significance for all Humanity. The message, while a profound warning in its origin, is also a message of hope. What will God's children interpret the message to mean? What does God truly expect from His children? Almighty God loves all His children so much that it is beyond our capacity of understanding. God desires all His children to learn how to love one another and to live in peace. God is trying to get our attention before evil destroys Humanity and the entire world. The message is a severe reminder that God loves every Soul immensely, but God's people must return this love by proving to Him we all have the moral convictions to turn our back on evil and love and trust in His mercy. It was during the process of writing the book that the author was further inspired by the Holy Spirit through the Angel to persevere and reveal what must be said. There are thirty-three intense chapters. Each chapter is a culmination of issues pertinent to why the Angel appeared with a profound message. Our Holy Father, who is in Heaven, watches over His children with infinite love, compassion, and mercy. The overall responsibility of Rose Mary to write this book has become a mission of love for her. I See An Angel is the most vital endeavor of the author's life. The amazing account of the event that took place by a visit from an Angel merits only the highest degree of recognition to Almighty God. All praise and honor is yours, Almighty Father, forever and ever..

Tree of Souls - Howard Schwartz Preview:

The first anthology of Jewish mythology in English, Tree of Souls reveals a mythical tradition as rich and as fascinating as any in the world. Drawing from the Bible, the Pseudepigrapha, the Talmud and Midrash, the kabbalistic literature, medieval folklore, Hasidic texts, and oral lore collected in the modern era, Schwartz has gathered together nearly 700 of the key Jewish myths. The myths themselves are marvelous. We read of Adams diamond and the Land of Eretz (where it is always dark), the fall of Lucifer and the quarrel of the sun and the moon, the Treasury of Souls and the Divine Chariot. We discover new tales about the great figures of the Hebrew Bible, from Adam to Moses; stories about God's Bride, the Shekhinah, and the evil temptress, Lilith; plus many tales about angels and demons, spirits and vampires, giant beasts and the Golem. Equally important, Schwartz provides a wealth of additional information. For each myth, he includes extensive commentary, revealing the source of the myth and explaining how it relates to other Jewish myths as well as to world literature (for instance, comparing Eves release of evil into the world with Pandoras). For ease of use, Schwartz divides the volume into ten books, Myths of God, Myths of Creation, Myths of Heaven, Myths of Hell, Myths of the Holy Word, Myths of the Holy Time, Myths of the Holy People, Myths of the Holy Land, Myths of Exile, and Myths of the Messiah..

Imperfections - Lynda Durrant Preview:

As the Civil War looms, a teenager finds refuge from her abusive father in a Shaker community in this “lovely and thought-provoking” novel (Kirkus Reviews). Rosemary Elizabeth likes Pleasant Hill. Unlike her former home, the Kentucky Shaker community is serene and full of beautiful things. The food is plentiful and delicious, and she dresses in spotless white garments. Above all, she and her younger siblings are now safe from their drunken, often violent, father, and from the war between the Union and the Confederacy, which is said to be drawing closer every day. Perfection is the goal at Pleasant Hill, and Rosemary Elizabeth vows to be perfect so she’ll be allowed to stay. As time passes, however, she finds herself more and more at odds with the Shaker path, the rules that are supposed to govern everything she says and does and even what she dreams. If she eliminates all the imperfections the Shakers find in her, will anything remain? “Built around a historical incident—a visit by the soldiers of Morgan’s Raiders to Pleasant Hill in 1862—this fine coming-of-age novel rewards readers with an unusual glimpse into a rarely portrayed religion as well as a different perspective on the Civil War.” —Booklist.

Imperfections - Bradley Somer Preview:

Richard Trench finds himself with no arms and no legs, reduced to a torso in the trunk of a car. There is a reason. It all makes sense. The point is there somewhere . . . Imperfections elucidates the private lives of supermodels and circus freaks, sheiks and designer dominatrixes and the metamorphosis of the body chic. These are lives where the importance of vehicular mephitis-cide, a charity lobster boil for burn victims, a grilled-cheese sandwich with the face of the Virgin Mary toasted on it and a prophecy about the uncanny deaths of the voice-actors for Tigger and Piglet, can not be overlooked. Set in the world of glittering photo shoots in exotic locations, extreme visions of beauty and raucous fashion shows, Imperfections is a genre-bending novel that sits solidly in the foggy area between fact and fiction..

A Manual of Catholic Theology - Joseph Wilhelm D.D. Ph.D. and Thomas B. Scannell D.D.,Aeterna Press Preview:

THE word “Theology” means the Science of God. This science has God not only for its subject, but also for its source and its object; hence the Divine character of Theology cannot better be described than by the old formula: “Theology teaches about God, is taught by God, and leads to God.” Theology may be taken objectively as doctrine, or subjectively as knowledge. But it is not every knowledge of Divine doctrine, especially not the mere apprehension of it, that is called Theology. The term is restricted to scientific knowledge; and consequently Theology, in its technical sense, is the scientific exposition of the doctrine concerning God and things Divine. Aeterna Press.

The Blessed and Boundless God - George Swinnock Preview:

From the psalmist’s assertion that no one in heaven or earth is like God, George Swinnock derives his principal doctrine—namely, God is incomparable. Throughout The Blessed and Boundless God , he proves his doctrine by demonstrating God’s incomparableness in His being, attributes, works, and words. Swinnock is a pastor-theologian who views theology as the means by which we grow in acquaintance with God and, consequently, in godliness. Therefore, he carefully applies his doctrine by demonstrating how God’s incomparableness informs, counsels, and comforts us. Read this book prayerfully, thoughtfully, and expectantly, keeping in mind Swinnock’s simple conviction that “when we take the incomparable God as our God, we are incomparably blessed.” Table of Contents: Part 1—God’s Incomparable Being Part 2—God’s Incomparable Attributes Part 3—God’s Incomparable Works Part 4—God’s Incomparable Words Part 5—Application Series Description Interest in the Puritans continues to grow, but many people find reading these giants of the faith a bit unnerving. This series seeks to overcome that barrier by presenting Puritan books that are convenient in size and unintimidating in length. Each book is carefully edited with modern readers in mind, smoothing out difficult language of a bygone era while retaining the meaning of the original authors. Books for the series are thoughtfully selected to provide some of the best counsel on important subjects that people continue to wrestle with today..

Come to Light - Morgan Gray Preview:

MORGAN GRAY grew up in a small rivertown where gossip on a circular-dial party-line telephone and which allowed neighbors to eavesdrop on each others conversations and forward the "news" to Sunday prayer meetings composed of blue-haired widows reeking of Channel #5 family reunions, so-called worthy matrons, and just plain ole exaggerated, gossip by high-horse ladies full of prejudice, judgment, and better-than-thou tones. Absorbing all this folklore, Morgan felt compelled to evaluate and question morals that did not seem to define a sense of right or wrong, and good or evil. As you read through Come to Light, you will feel poignant emotions, visualize stark, if not startling imagery, meet a variety of unique characters (some very good and some very evil), and be enlightened by timeless themes that will touch your lives, and perhaps even haunt your own identity. Morgan Gray was delivered at birth in a two-story 1960's home by a self-trained, midwife grandmother, while a one-year older brother lay alongside the same bed where Morgan still sleeps in today. Living there till married at age nineteen in the living room witnessed by a large portrait of a sad-faced Jesus—no water turned to wine, there in the same house, Morgan's dad died in the same birth bed and several years later, Morgan's mom breathed her last breath in her favorite green-velvet rocking chair. Morgan raised two girls in the same small town just a few blocks away from the homestead and still lives there today. Now a retired veteran English teacher of thirty years, Morgan has reached out to over 3,000 young high school adult-about-to-be's while, instilling in them a love for literature, and a freedom of expression as they too Come to Light..
