This book is a new experience in poetry with Spanish and English poems of varying themes and sizes, but with many sonnets. The sonnet form has not been used much in recent years but has again surfaced as a succinct way to express oneself poetically. Although these sonnets are not exactly like the ones of old of Elizabethan and Italian forms, they are an experiment in fourteen-line verse for our day.

In 2003 Kent Annan left behind his prosperous, comfortable upbringing to face the world beyond its gates, where people wear his cast-off clothing and seek comfort from the heat in the long shadow of his homeland. Haiti, apparently, was where God wanted him. Of course, just because God wants you somewhere doesn't mean it's going to be easy. Little did he know how important his work would be. Now, in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, Annan's experience living and working in Haiti has become a powerful resource for those looking to learn more about this amazing country and find out how they can help Haiti rebuild and thrive. In this book you'll enter into Annan's experience traveling and working in Haiti, and ultimately you'll be challenged to follow God into uncharted territory on a path that may lead to your local soup kitchen--or to a Haitian relief settlement. Either way, you'll learn what it means to become vulnerable in order to help others and share the embodied love of Christ. Read Following Jesus Through the Eye of the Needle for a vivid picture of the Haiti Annan knows, the good work happening there through organizations like Haiti Partners, and the ways you can get involved. Whether you go or stay, you'll get a fresh sense of what it means to love God and love our neighbor when love is uncomfortable, even dangerous; to see what happens when God stretches you beyond your borders into his kingdom.

The Houses of Israel and Judah dominate the scriptures from the time of King David until they both were sent into captivity. Each House had a destiny to fulfill. These destinies are being worked out today. What drives the destiny of these Houses? The Birthright is a term that many in the Church are aware of but without an understanding of its presence throughout the scriptures. It is manifested as the Dominion Mandate and the Fruitfulness Mandate through the Houses of Israel and Judah. What are the implications for the coming Kingdom of God and the Sons of God? We cannot know or comprehend this answer unless we understand the many foundational scriptures and concepts that establish God's Heart and Plan for the 'last days'. This study will challenge each person to be 'teachable' and open to another perspective of God's Plan for Redemption. God will reveal His Plan for you and your place in His Coming Kingdom. God is maturing His Believers to 'rule and reign' with Him.

Threads of Life

A History of the World Through the Eye of a Needle

**SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER** **RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK** The Hare with Amber Eyes meets The History of the World in 100 Objects: an eloquent history of the language of sewing. For the mothers of the disappeared in 1970s Argentina, protest was difficult. Every Thursday they marched in front of government buildings wearing headscarves embroidered with the names of their lost children. Through sewing, they found a way to campaign. In Tudor England Mary, Queen of Scots was under house arrest and her letters were censored, so she sewed secret treason into her needlework to communicate with the world outside. From the political propaganda of the Bayeux Tapestry and First World War soldiers with PTSD, to the maps sewn by schoolgirls in the New World, Threads of Life stretches from medieval France to contemporary Mexico, from a POW camp in Singapore to a family attic in Scotland. It is a chronicle of identity, protest, memory, power and politics told through the stories of the men and women, over centuries and across continents, who have used the language of sewing to make their voices heard, even in the most desperate of circumstances. In an eloquent blend of history and memoir, Threads of Life is an evocative and moving book about the need we all have to tell our story. 'Threads of Life is a beautifully considered book . . . Clare Hunter mixes the personal with the political with moving results.' TRACY CHEVALIER

Exploring the Seven Elements of the Lord's Prayer

A Thought-Provoking Journey into the Practical and Biblical Principles of the Prayer Given to Us by Christ Jesus

When Christ Jesus gave us the Lord’s Prayer, he encapsulated eternal principles already revealed in the Old Testament. Exploring the Seven Elements of the Lord’s Prayer is a journey that reveals those principles about our proper relationship with God, His nature, what we must do to enter the kingdom, find purpose, and bring internal peace, healing, and comfort. It can be read individually and in a group study. Each of the twelve chapters includes tough questions for contemplation and discussion that will challenge you and help you grow in your faith. Erik does a thorough work of reminding us of the importance of allowing ourselves to be transformed and that an awesome God includes us in His purposes as part of His kingdom. Excerpt from foreword by Pastor Phil Scott, Regional Director, Allegheny Region Conference of the Churches of God Erik’s approach is not theological or academic. Rather, he takes a unique look at the Model Prayer with a desire for discovery. I found it most refreshing. Enjoy and be inspired. John O. Yoder, BA, Pastor and Church Planter

The Muslim's Commentary of the Bible is the first of its kind; the first ever written by a Muslim, provides a compelling and interesting perception to all readers with any interest in the Bible, religiously or historically. The commentary if based as much as possible on the earliest and most reliable sources, and the result of this research deals in depth with certain key-points, some of which are: The authors of the four Gospels. When the Gospels were written. Has the Bible been changed? If so, when and where? Did Jesus preach only to the Jews? The 'Divinity' of Jesus. Did Jesus die on the cross as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind? Is Muhammad prophesised in the Bible? The similarities between the message of Jesus and the message of Muhammad. Written in a unique style, a Muslim's Commentary of the Bible will give the reader a better chance to understand what really happened to Jesus 2000 years ago, and what he most likely said and said and did not say.
