The Antichrist (Best Navigation, Active TOC) (Feathers Classics)

This book contains now several HTML tables of contents that will make reading a real pleasure!

Friedrich Nietzsche's "The Antichrist" might be more aptly named "The Antichristian," for it is an unmitigated attack on Christianity that Nietzsche makes within the text instead of an exposition on evil or Satan as the title might suggest. In "The Antichrist," Nietzsche presents a highly controversial view of Christianity as a damaging influence upon western civilization that must come to an end. Regardless of ones religious or philosophical point of view, "The Antichrist" makes for an engaging philosophical discourse.

Remnant: Noah Fiction Series (Grace Finder Book 1)

One family. A chosen remnant. With nothing but grace to carry them through.

Enter the world of Noah, the Grace Finder. Here you'll encounter prophets, warriors, street urchins, and royalty; political intrigue and personal betrayal; dragons, giants, and a ragtag band of misfits; sword fights and drawn bows; visions and incantations; love, sacrifice, and redemption.

All in the face of impending annihilation.

------------------------------------

Many have tried to adapt the Flood legends, exploring the questions: Why would God send a flood to destroy so many? How could a loving Father bring down such complete annihilation? What grieved the Creator so deeply that He would flood away an entire world, leaving only a remnant of eight?

This trilogy cuts to the heart of those questions and more. The Flood story is one of our world's most ancient tales; it's also the most misunderstood. Scholarly commentaries gloss over the Flood. Movie versions seldom do the tale justice. Children's Bibles tame it into one of a robed, grandfatherly Noah and plush animal figurines.

So let the first book in this series usher you toward a fresh revelation of the Flood event, envision God's remnant as never before, and find answers that may surprise you. And, as you follow the series to its end, discover a grace even deeper than the waters that covered an entire world.
