Book Description :

From his childhood in West Texas to his adolescence as a cowboy in northeastern New Mexico, from D-Day in World War II to the wild world of Hollywood, Max Evans has truly lived many lifetimes. Peppered through all this mayhem were stints as a gold smuggler, mining company executive, artist in Taos, professional calf roper, movie producer and legendary partygoer. Through all the years of havoc and hijinks, Max has remained true to his many best friends, and to his writing. From The Rounders, which brought him fame, money, and his first movie deal, to Madam Millie, his biography of a celebrated New Mexico madam, Max's work has paralleled his own life. In Ol' Max Evans we witness his friendships, the wild horses, the bar brawls, the discovery of his place in literature, the laughter, and a mystical world of shadows and mystery, which date back to the year he spent with his grandmother as a boy.

Book Description :

There has been a church on the site of Exeter Cathedral since Roman times. This is the story of its first thousand years, when three successive cathedrals were built, including the present one. In twelve chapters, the author takes us back to the past to see why the cathedral is like it is, and what went on there. We explore its origins; its surroundings and buildings; its wealth, clergy, and people; its workings from day to day and throughout the year; and how it changed at the time of the Reformation. This is a fascinating piece of religious and social history, written for the general reader and illustrated with maps, reconstructions, and photographs.

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

Christianity, one of the world’s great religions, has had an incalculable impact on human history. This book, now the most comprehensive and up to date single volume work in English, describes not only the main ideas and personalities of Christian history, its organisation and spirituality, but how it has changed politics, sex, and human society. Diarmaid MacCulloch ranges from Palestine in the first century to India in the third, from Damascus to China in the seventh century and from San Francisco to Korea in the twentieth. He is one of the most widely travelled of Christian historians and conveys a sense of place as arrestingly as he does the power of ideas. He presents the development of Christian history differently from any of his predecessors. He shows how, after a semblance of unity in its earliest centuries, the Christian church divided during the next 1400 years into three increasingly distanced parts, of which the western Church was by no means always the most important: he observes that at the end of the first eight centuries of Christian history, Baghdad might have seemed a more likely capital for worldwide Christianity than Rome. This is the first truly global history of Christianity.

Book Description :

“Jenkins is one of America’s top religious scholars.” —Forbes magazine The Lost History of Christianity by Philip Jenkins offers a revolutionary view of the history of the Christian church. Subtitled “The Thousand-Year Golden Age of the Church in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia—and How It Died,” it explores the extinction of the earliest, most influential Christian churches of China, India, and the Middle East, which held the closest historical links to Jesus and were the dominant expression of Christianity throughout its first millennium. The remarkable true story of the demise of the institution that shaped both Asia and Christianity as we know them today, The Lost History of Christianity is a controversial and important work of religious scholarship that sounds a warning that must be heeded.

Book Description :

Full of larger-than-life characters, stunning acts of bravery, and heart-rending sacrifice, Tried by Fire narrates the rise and expansion of Christianity from an obscure regional sect to the established faith of the world’s greatest empire with influence extending from India to Ireland, Scandinavia to Ethiopia, and all points in between. William J. Bennett explores the riveting lives of saints and sinners, paupers and kings, merchants and monks who together—and against all odds—changed the world forever. To tell their story, Bennett follows them through the controversies and trials of their time. Challenged by official persecution, heresy, and schism, they held steadfast to the truth of Christ. Strengthened by poets, preachers, and theologians, they advanced in devotion and love. In this moving and accessible narrative, Tried by Fire speaks across centuries to offer insight into the people and events that shaped the faith that continues to shape our lives today.

Book Description :

There is no period when the distant roar of history can be heard pounding on the pages of the past with greater fury than during the ten savage centuries known as The Fourth Thousand Years. This was the age of the first world empires, the days when Assyria, Babylon, Greece and Rome each displayed their passion for power. It was an age which demanded the resounding and inspired voices of many of God’s greatest spokesmen. The turbulent chaos of these centuries brought forth many mighty prophets of God -- Elijah, Elisha, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Jonah, Lehi, Nephi, Daniel, Zechariah, and many others. The lives and times of all these men are in these pages. This is the third and final volume of this series dealing with the Old Testament. The volumes which preceded it were entitled: The First 2,000 Years, which covered the period from Adam to Abraham, and The Third Thousand Years, which covered Bible history from Abraham to David. This present volume deals with the exciting scriptural epic which emerged between the time of David and the coming of Christ. For those who find the Old Testament arduous reading, these three books should prove especially inspirational and helpful. This eBook includes the original index, illustrations, footnotes, table of contents and page numbering from the printed format.

Book Description :

The time is coming when the world will be radically changed for the better. It will last for a thousand years, bookended by resurrections, first of the just and then of the unjust. Satan will be chained in the abyss, no longer free to influence the nations. The saints will reign alongside the King of kings, Jesus Christ. This is a time that will begin after the return of the Messiah and end with Satan's total defeat and the judgment of sinners. It is the very culmination of history, a transition away from the fallen world into the perfection of the eternal state. This is a time known as the Millennium and the Messianic Kingdom. An understanding of this critical age makes the Bible come together as one metanarrative. It helps tell the story of the Scriptures.
