Aristotle: The Complete Works

Aristotle (384-322 BCE) was a Greek philosopher and student of Plato who stunningly changed the course of Western philosophy. He has gone down in history as one of the greatest philosophers of all time. Cicero, the Roman statesman and philosopher, once called his writing style "a river of gold;" and his scope of thought and subsequent influence on the study of science, logic, philosophical discourse, and theology has led many to dub him "The Philosopher."

Amish Knitting Circle Christmas: Granny & Jeb's Love Story

Granny Weaver started a knitting circle believing women are stronger spun together, just like her wool. But she was young once with her own struggles. In 1963 Deborah Byler is twenty-one and has turned down seven marriage proposals from hopeful suitors in Millersburg, Ohio. At her parent's request, she goes to live with relatives in the new Amish settlement in Smicksburg, Pennsylvania, praying she'll find a match. Jeb Weaver lives in a strict Swartzentruber Amish settlement, and he can no longer abide under the rules of the Ordnung. His older brother left the family farm and settled in Smicksburg, and convinces Jeb to do the same. When Jeb meets Deborah, he finds her too liberal and outspoken. Deborah thinks Jeb's judgmental and a complete stick in the mud. Their constant clashing makes sparks fly. Will an African American man, who hitchhikes around the country to attend Martin Luther King Jr. marches, help Jeb and Deborah see their own prejudices? "Karen Anna Vogel again bring us another heart warming Granny & Jeb story. A love that surrounds all those who read it." Pamela Jarrell Whoopie Pie Book Club

Charles Dickens's Christmas Tales (Best Navigation, Active TOC) (A to Z Classics)

With A to Z Classics, discover or rediscover all the classics of literature.

Contains Active Table of Contents (HTML)

In these five stories, Dickens celebrates the spirit of Christmas, sharing and charity, and denounces the social injustice that excludes the poor from this feast. It is a truculent portrait of everyday life and an unqualified condemnation of exploitation and misery. This social message, Dickens gives us gently, by the detour of the tale and the fantasy.

Hamlet - Prince of Denmark (Wisehouse Classics Edition)

The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, often shortened to Hamlet, is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare at an uncertain date between 1599 and 1602. Set in Denmark, the play dramatises the revenge Prince Hamlet is called to wreak upon his uncle, Claudius, by the ghost of Hamlet's father, King Hamlet. Claudius had murdered his own brother and seized the throne, also marrying his deceased brother's widow.

Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest play, and is considered among the most powerful and influential works of world literature, with a story capable of "seemingly endless retelling and adaptation by others." The play likely was one of Shakespeare's most popular works during his lifetime, and still ranks among his most performed, topping the performance list of the Royal Shakespeare Company and its predecessors in Stratford-upon-Avon since 1879. It has inspired many other writers--from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Charles Dickens to James Joyce and Iris Murdoch--and has been described as "the world's most filmed story after Cinderella".

The story of Shakespeare's Hamlet was derived from the legend of Amleth, preserved by 13th-century chronicler Saxo Grammaticus in his Gesta Danorum, as subsequently retold by 16th-century scholar Francois de Belleforest. Shakespeare may also have drawn on an earlier (hypothetical) Elizabethan play known today as the Ur-Hamlet, though some scholars believe he himself wrote the Ur-Hamlet, later revising it to create the version of Hamlet we now have. He almost certainly wrote his version of the title role for his fellow actor, Richard Burbage, the leading tragedian of Shakespeare's time. In the 400 years since its inception, the role has been performed by numerous highly acclaimed actors in each successive century.

God's Christmas List

With all the time spent thinking about the perfect gifts for our friends, relatives, and neighbors, I wonder how much time we have spent asking, "What does God want for Christmas? What's on His gift list?" After all, it is His birthday, right? This holiday is about the Lord wrapping Himself in flesh and becoming the greatest gift the world has ever known. That means if anyone deserves something in return this Christmas, it is Him. Since that is the case, we should invest time in discovering the Lord's wish list.

Using his down-to-earth conversational style, Mark Musser leads you into the Christmas story found in Matthew 2. There you'll encounter King Herod who cares more about being in charge than being changed. You'll meet the religious leaders who are too apathetic to apply the Scripture to their lives. And you'll wander with the wise-men as they pursue Christ with every ounce of their being.

As you journey with these characters, you will see their strengths and weaknesses (and perhaps some of your own as well.) You will come to understand what kept Herod and the religious leaders from honoring God that first Christmas, and you will learn from the wise-men what God really wanted that Christmas...and every day since.

Manifestations: Life After Death - For like-minds who wonder, why they're here and where they go after they die...

The Narrator

It begins with its narrator who is clearly a higher power: God, Allah, JA, Yahweh, Jehovah, The Great Spirit, Amen, etc.

The narrator does not dwell on that; for clearly, as you will read, it is beneath it to mention; for the logic of the narrator cuts through the concept of true religion and traditional worship.

Once the deity establishes itself, you will find yourself giving it leeway to discover what new scientific or spiritual information it has to offer.

The narrator does not let down.

Personal Transformation

After whisking you through creation, the narrator gives us a glimpse at the Earthly Realm, human history, knowledge of self, and the ever changing of self.

The way the narrator weaves these ideas together and still addresses reincarnation, science and religion, without offending them is what separates this text from the ancient scriptures.

The narrator is intelligent, quick witted, and detailed. Moreover, the deity articulates the present life only as a precursor to our life after life. As the text suggests, life then truly begins.

Near Death Experience

To start the transformation, the narrator allows you to experience death and enter the first of seven realms of the afterlife. This is where, as a reader, you expect a complicated, sketchy explanation.

The narrator makes it simple. The Astral Realm is the first realm that is introduced. As an astral being, the narrator introduces the new challenges that await you.

Similar to how the narrator explained the Earthly Realm; the Astral Realm is explained in just as much detail, yet, simple, so the common person can understand it.

The narrator then takes us to The Realm of Contemplation. It is here that all thoughts lie dormant. Just like the previous two realms, the narrator walks you through the realm while teaching.

This is continued until the seventh level is visited and explained.

Heaven and Hell

This work is a work of eschatology. Where one may read about heaven and hell in the Bible, Qu'ran or Ramayana, the concept of Heaven and Hell are not mentioned in Manifestations.

Could it be that they do not exist? Or perhaps we may need to change our concept of it. The text agrees with Kemetic Science as it supports life after death. According do Manifestations, even in the afterlife, good souls can suffer, if they do not strive to be masters.


Are there some practical Christian standards that leave you perplexed? Habits ostensibly endorsed by scripture but remain inexplicable? Staunchly maintained as being right and yet no one can properly explain why they are right. Justified because previous generations did this and therefore must be right? This book examines; woman wearing hats to church, woman wearing men's clothes, baptism adults and children, professional associations and living by faith.

Palm Sunday: What Kind of Person Rides a Donkey?: Mark 11.1-11 in Biblical Context

Why did Jesus choose to ride a donkey when he entered Jerusalem? How was the donkey important to the story?

Adventures of a Mall Santa

Bursting into the photo lab, David, the mall manager, said to me, "QUICK, put down what you're doing; our mall Santa cancelled, and we need a Santa NOW!" On our way out the door he said, "I need you to be Santa for this week through Christmas Eve," and then almost as a second thought, he asked, "Have you ever been a Santa before?" I said, "No, and why ME?" "You're big, you don't need pillows, you laugh a lot, and your eyes even kind of twinkle a bit," he said. I was dumb struck--thinking about myself as Santa! The whole idea was so crazy and sudden that I burst out laughing with a "HO! HO! HO!" to fit the moment --"SEE," he said, "That's what I mean; you'll make a GREAT Santa!"

What others have said:

"This book is short and is full of real, funny, compassionate, and timely stories by a mall Santa. I hope there's a second helping coming!" --CVV

"This Christmas story made me laugh; it was such a delight to read this. I would truly recommend it to everyone to read." --JVK

"Funny and heartwarming story! Reminded me of taking my kids to see Santa when they were little . . . one would always cry!" --SFG

If you're looking for a heartwarming Christmas story that will make you smile, then you'll find this book an easy and fun read! Whether you're reading the top Christmas books, or even assorted Xmas stories, in the end, Santa is in the hearts of those who enjoy the Christmas Spirit of the season. This little book promises to put that Christmas twinkle in your eye with a smile, and together with jolly old Santa, you'll find yourself joining him in bellowing, "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"

Lies My Science Teacher Told Me

This book, written by a science teacher, explores some of the most common lies told by science teachers today. In the world of Christian Science, much has been said to add support to Biblical truths found in scripture. This book shifts the focus away from analyzing scripture and takes a look at the myths being labeled as fact in the scientific community.

This is a challenge to both educators and students to accept scientific uncertainty for what it is. When science doesn't know the answer to something, it will always have a theory. If the theory doesn't work, then it's labeled the "generally accepted theory" with noted difficulties. It's time we call these theories what they are. Much of it is purely science fiction. I hope you enjoy this sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, always judgmental look at modern science.

The Miracle of the Manger: The Christmas Story as told by the Innkeeper

Sometimes it is fun to read between the lines of our favorite Bible stories. What happened when Joseph and Mary went to Bethlehem. Why couldn't they find a room for their baby to be born? What was happening at the Inn and who were the people who ran the Inn?

This short, read-aloud story helps paint the picture for your children to visualize what it "may have been" like two thousand years ago.

What Is the Relationship Between Church and State (Crucial Questions)

How should Christians view the state? God calls Christians to honor the governing authorities (Rom. 13:1 7), but we know that this is no easy task. Should Christians lobby the state to obey God's law? Must believers obey the state at all times, no matter what it commands? Does the church have any say in how the state is governed, and does the state have any say in how the church should be administrated? The answers to these questions aren't simple. In this booklet, Dr. R.C. Sproul considers the biblical principles that direct the Christian's understanding of the state.
