A visual tribute to the elegant world of heirloom household fabrics, from the white linen cloth of ancient Egypt to the rainbow-hued coverlets of today. This lively text introduces heirloom household fabrics, their use, manufacture, embellishments, and care, as well as the infinite variety of fibers and materials used. The author explains how they serve as both unusually revealing testaments of the history of daily life and quintessential examples of the weaver's craft, often so magnificently decorated that they rival works of art. The text is supplemented by a rich array of paintings, archival photographs, vintage advertisements, and original commissioned photography from collections, private homes, and workshops of the leading contemporary manufacturers. A comprehensive glossary of technical terms, bibliography, and index complete the book.

The Book of Revelation

Worship for Life in the Spirit of Prophecy

John Paul Heil presents an original analysis of the theme of worship in the book of Revelation guided by a new illustration of its comprehensive chiastic structure. The worship that Revelation exhorts and enables is in the divine Spirit of prophetic witness against all forms of idolatrous worship on earth in favor of a true, heavenly, and universal worship of the Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb, for an eternal and heavenly life. The audience begins this worship in the eucharistic supper into which Revelation leads them by inviting them to respond to the promise of Jesus, Yes, I am coming soon, with Amen! Come, Lord Jesus! They thereby affirm and welcome the coming of the Lord Jesus, the exalted sacrificial Lamb, to the eucharistic supper that anticipates his final coming and the divine grace, the gift of eternal life, of the Lord Jesus that is intended to be the destiny of all--The grace of the Lord Jesus with all!

A fun and fascinating way to learn about the book of Revelation. The Bible’s final book, Revelation, can seem intimidating or downright impossible to comprehend, even for serious students of the Scriptures. Filled with complex imagery, vivid depictions of violence, and challenging spiritual references, Revelation is often set aside by readers in favor of more straightforward, easier-to-digest biblical material. Yet the capstone of the canon need not remain a mystery. In this refreshingly accessible book, Bible scholar and best-selling author Tim LaHaye (originator of the Left Behind series) and renowned puzzle master Timothy E. Parker (editor of the USA Today Crossword, and founder of The Universal Crossword, King James Games, and Master Puzzles) demystify Revelation for your benefit. Absorb this book and discover afresh—or for the first time—the richness of Revelation and its God-breathed, life-changing power to deepen your walk of faith.

The Answer to All Your Questions about the Book of Revelation

Ray Pennington, a country preacher and pastor, spent many years studying the Word of God, spending many hours reading the writings of different authors of books about the Revelation of Jesus Christ. In 2005 God put a desire in Ray to simply read this great Revelation of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. It was during this year and in a very short period of time that God illuminated Ray's mind concerning this Great Revelation of Jesus Christ and he preached thirty-one sermons as the Holy Spirit inspired him. Through this experience of illumination given by the Holy Spirit Ray realized that we have been given a Teacher that is far above the commentaries of men. This book was not written as a commentary but God given illumination concerning The Revelation of Jesus Christ. Ray and his wife Dolly now reside in Staffordsville, Kentucky.

Mitch had already left for his home in New York, so Erica still hadn’t told him about Wally. She knew Margie had her suspicions, but since Margie had gotten her connected with Wally, Erica hoped she’d play dumb and mind her own business. The truth was, Erica simply couldn’t resist Wally’s charm and transparent honesty. His worldly life-experience seemed to add to his magnetism. So, when he asked her out for New Year’s Eve, she knew it would be for a real date, and there was no way to deny it. Erica knew she needed to clean up the messy situation she had created, but she lacked the will to do it. She wanted to be with Wally. And she wanted to be with Mitch. And she wanted to serve God. It seemed that Erica couldn’t open her Bible these days Without conviction piercing her heart. She couldn’t stand to pray one more time to ask forgiveness for something she knew she’d want to do the next time the opportunity presented itself. After all, she could have fun when she didn’t let her heart communicate with her mind. She didn’t seem to care about what she was doing, but she cared enough to ask God to help her to care again.

That the Book should be shunned by many because of its mysterious character is no wonder. It is one of the "devices" of Satan to get people to neglect a Book that foretells his casting as "Prince of the Powers of the Air," and the "God of this Age," out of the Heavenlies... -from The Book of Revelation The Reverend Clarence Larkin was one of the most widely influential thinkers on end-times prophecies of the early twentieth century, and his writings remain vital to appreciating the apocalyptic Christian thought that today enjoys widespread popularity. This 1919 book serves as a study guide for the Book of Revelation, the Bible's prophetic final chapter. Larkin explains the concepts of the Beast and the False Prophet, the Seven Seals and the Seven Trumpets, and the importance of the Book of Daniel in understanding the Rapture. Charts and illustrations depict the "Pale Horse Rider," "Daniel's Four Wild Beasts," "Egyptian Plagues Compared," and more. Also available from Cosimo Classics: Larkin's The Spirit World, Rightly Dividing the Word, and The Second Coming of Christ. American Baptist pastor and author CLARENCE LARKIN (1850-1924) was born in Pennsylvania, and later set up his ministry there. He wrote extensively and popularly on a wide range of Biblical and theological matters.
