Revelation: Unveiling the Signs and Symbols, Sampler
Russell M. Stendal - 2015
It describes not only the persecution that originates from Satan, but also announces the day when God will intervene and cleanse the earth. This is definitely something to look forward to if we are right with him. Not so much for those living for themselves. Sadly, many commentaries on Revelation ignore the need to have a clean heart in order to survive what’s coming. In this edition, we dig deep into the signs, the wonders, and the genuine Christian’s role in the soon-to-be-fulfilled book of Revelation. We even go back to the prophets to help clarify what is the most important message to Christians today. About the Author Russell Stendal, a former hostage of Colombian rebels, is a lifelong missionary to that same group in the jungles of Colombia. He is an influential friend to military and government leaders in Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, and the United States. Russell’s ministry shares the gospel via twelve radio stations, hundreds of thousands of Bibles, books, and movies distributed through airplane parachute drops and numerous speaking engagements for groups of leaders, prisoners, and individuals. Russell goes wherever the Lord leads, whether it’s to speak with a president or to go deep into the jungle to help an individual in trouble. He has witnessed thousands commit their lives to Christ.

Tower of the Hand: A Flight of Sorrows
Marc N. Kleinhenz - 2012
There has been nearly a metric ton of essays, forum posts, and encyclopedia entries logged at the site to date, all designed to give the hardest of the core fan the most rewarding experience possible while reading George R.R. Martin's seminal novels.And now we’re taking all those years of mastery and applying them to an ebook.“Tower of the Hand: A Flight of Sorrows” takes five of the site's most prolific authors - including its two founders - and draws out their best, most in-depth work yet. Unlike other “Ice and Fire” compendiums, the focus of these essays is on the narrative, character, and thematic elements of the story itself, as opposed to the literary aspects surrounding the books.Even better, the TOTH editors are joined by some of their good friends, who just so happen to be leading voices in the “Game of Thrones” community: A Podcast of Ice and Fire co-hosts Amin Javadi and Mimi Hoshut, WinterIsComing.net founder Phil Bicking, and “A Feast of Ice and Fire” co-author Chelsea Monroe-Cassel, along with noted fantasy editor and author Douglas Cohen.Altogether, the book’s eight authors (and two special guests) cover a wide gamut of subjects and perspectives, from the most obvious to the most subtle, challenging readers to look at the novels they love so much in entirely new - and more enriching - ways.
Sailing in a Spoonful of Water
Joe Coomer - 1997
With his wife and their families gathered alongside him, he spent the next four years learning to master the boat he called Yonder. In Sailing in a Spoonful of Water, Coomer writes of reviving the vintage craft with an amateur sailor's infectious delight and a novelist's keenness of observation. Yet this lyrical and moving memoir is more than just a book about boating: As he gains his footing aboard Yonder, Coomer's narrative reflects back on signal events in his life - events that have drawn him, again and again, to river or lake or ocean. Gazing into the water, Coomer perceives the reflections of his wife and their parents and grandparents, drawn always to the water along with him. And, in prose that mingles humor, generosity, and pure, awed delight, he finds in them his own safest harbor. A book that will appeal to readers of writers as diverse as Tracy Kidder and E. Annie Proulx, Sailing in a Spoonful of Water is a work of rare warmth and wonder.
