Gods in the Desert explores the fascinating religious cultures of the ancient Near East. From the mysterious pyramids, tombs, and temples of Egypt to the powerful heroes, gods, and legends of Mesopotamia, Glenn Holland guides readers through the early religions that are the root of many of today's major faiths. Holland compares the religions of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Syria-Palestine, including Israel and Judah, from the Neolithic era through the conquest of Alexander the Great. He provides a historical survey of each region, then discusses the gods, the rulers, the afterlife, and the worship rituals. This accessible overview makes clear how these religions converged and diverged, and are intimately connected to many of the religions we recognize today, sometimes in surprising ways.
An epic poem presents a hero who undertakes a series of adventures, usually as part of a journey. The hero lives explicitly in relationship to the divine world, and gods and goddesses are major actors in the stories of his adventures.

Cancer Girl wraps herself in a cape of grace, freely sharing her experiences of diagnosis, traversing the medical system, finding faith in God again, and learning to live with cancer. Cancer Girl learns that there is no stronger “magic word” than “Trust God.” Part journal, part sage advice, Fitch Courie weaves her experience as a nurse throughout her story. Using her real-time blog posts during the course of diagnosis, treatment, and living with the disease, Fitch Courie covers the cycle of grief and relearning a new norm, offering assurance to others that they are not alone. Each chapter opens with Scripture that reflects the theme of the day. Section 1 covers early stages of the journey; Section 2 offers learnings from the experience; and Section 3 offers questions for the individual to reflect on their own illness and how they felt. Readers are encouraged to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences with their illness in order to contribute to overall healing.

About the Author The Gods and the Beginning of Life, Don S. McClure's epic adventure about the gods, is his latest book release. This book is one of the most exciting fiction novels to come along in years written by this prolific writer. In it, he expresses his views on how mankind became the way it is today. McClure brings to life the story of the first gods, long before the stories of Homer and Mount Olympus or Zeus, or any of the gods long before the Titans. Long before Hector and Achilles or the god Apollo. This was the time when the gods were formed, and there was not one god who had more power than another. They possessed only cunning to survive and the wherewithal to understand that they would either stand or fall. McClure's latest work features the two main characters from his second book, Romantic Images of You: Where My Heart Belongs, David Stuart and Tiaunna.The loving couple finds themselves caught in a world of information and knowledge, and they hope that one day they will be able to share this information and better understand mankind and its actions. The book's introduction opens like a powerful motion picture:“There are many stories of how man conceived all of his human ways and instincts. Some say he was born decent, with morals and character. “Some say that from the time he was created there was no good in him at all. Just some small reflections of right or wrong and the desire to become the only power on earth, being judged by no one.“But I once spent seven days on the road with the woman I loved in the summer of 2001 crossing the Great Northern Plains, where I found the basis for what I learned about man and his beginning. “My name is David Stuart, and this woman of amazing beauty sleeping next to me in the front seat of our jeep is Tiaunna. This is our story.”Born in Chicago, Illinois, Don S. McClure has truly found his life's passion—writing—after the successful completion of his personal biography, Broken Wings Fallen Angels, and his second book, Romantic Images of You: Where My Heart Belongs.McClure hopes you will enjoy this epic adventure set in the open spaces of South Dakota's Black Hills and the world-famous Badlands. Perhaps you will find yourself caught between the words and images of his writing.An additional feature for this masterpiece you will enjoy some of the most beautiful photographic images the world has ever seen in one publication.

This book examines how epic poetry reflects cultural values, and how, in epic poems, the heroes must meet supernatural beings to find answers to essential questions. It begins with three chapters on ancient poetry (including The Iliad and The Odyssey, the Mahabharata, the Epic of Gilgamesh, the Aeneid and the Bhagavad Gita). Subsequent chapters take up the main subject of the book, examining the evolution of English epic poetry from the anonymous Old English Beowulf to Spenser's The Faerie Queen, Milton's Paradise Lost, Blake's Milton, Wordsworth's The Prelude, Barett Browning's Aurora Leigh and Derek Walcott's 1990 poem Omeros.
