At the end of the seventh century B.C. the rival aristocrats of Mytilene - the strongest city-state on the island of Lesbos - heading the various political factions, contended with each other for supreme power. Alcaeus, the poet, and his elder brother, bellicose Antimenidas, joined forces with Phanias and Pittacus and made plans to overthrow Myrsilus, who had risen to power with the support of the middle class, the merchants and marines. Their conspiracy was betrayed and everyone but Pittacus, who changed sides at the very last moment and became the prime target of Alcaeus' libels, had to flee into exile, to inland Pyrrha. Young Sappho, who was their contemporary, and whose political sympathies lay with Alcaeus, followed them, too. This novel relates their adventures from that point on. Historical information available with regard to the protagonists, as well as ideas and feelings depicted in their poetry and dicta preserved to this day, are the basic elements which intertwine with fiction in the effort to achieve successful restructuring of their time and life in an era which set the foundations for Greece's Golden Age. The outcome is an exciting story full of passion, bravery, love, friendship, and of unparalleled achievements.

Together for the first time in a single volume, two of Dr. Michael L. Brown's groundbreaking works are ready to challenge a new generation of Christians to combat the status quo of a compromised church and a godless society.-----Have you ever wondered why you rarely-if ever-see the kinds of miracles today that were so common in the Bible? Whatever Happened to the Power of God? explores why so few of the seriously ill are healed, why apparent encounters with God's supernatural power so rarely change lives, and why spiritual warfare seems to have little effect on society. This book asks the questions you have always wanted to ask and confronts you with answers that will change your life. Find out what's holding back the power of God! ----- In It's Time to Rock the Boat, Dr. Brown reveals the biblical pattern for changing society through preaching a confrontational gospel. The Old Testament prophets, New Testament apostles, John the Baptist, and Jesus the Messiah Himself were not content to let society be dragged down by its sinful and destructive elements-they took a stand against an onslaught of degradation and made waves that rocked the world! God is calling each of us to be part of that world-shaking movement. It's time!

The Life and Times of Mexico

Author: Earl Shorris
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
ISBN: 039334374X
Category: History
Page: 800
View: 426
A San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of the Year. "A work of scope and profound insight into the divided soul of Mexico." —History Today The Life and Times of Mexico is a grand narrative driven by 3,000 years of history: the Indian world, the Spanish invasion, Independence, the 1910 Revolution, the tragic lives of workers in assembly plants along the border, and the experiences of millions of Mexicans who live in the United States. Mexico is seen here as if it were a person, but in the Aztec way; the mind, the heart, the winds of life; and on every page there are portraits and stories: artists, shamans, teachers, a young Maya political leader; the rich few and the many poor. Earl Shorris is ingenious at finding ways to tell this story: prostitutes in the Plaza Loreto launch the discussion of economics; we are taken inside two crucial elections as Mexico struggles toward democracy; we watch the creation of a popular "telenovela" and meet the country's greatest living intellectual. The result is a work of magnificent scope and profound insight into the divided soul of Mexico.
