A man called Milton walks into town.... On the run from his own demons, John Milton treks through the Michigan wilderness into the town of Truth. He's not looking for trouble, but trouble's looking for him. He finds himself up against a small-town cop who has no idea with whom he is dealing and no idea how dangerous he is. But Milton is double crossed and badly injured. Unarmed and alone, he flees into the remote Porcupine Mountains with a posse on his tail. His enemies thought they could hunt him down. That was a mistake, and, where Milton is concerned, one mistake is all you get.

The Sword of God The saga continues... In a time of faith and violence, poetry and magic, mirage and cold steel, old religion battles new. A young girl comes of age, a woman rides a sacred camel to rally her clan, and a man wields a heavenly sword. In the early years of Islam, three lives braid together. Khalid ibn al-Wal d never lost a battle, either fighting against the Prophet Muhammad or for him. "Women no longer give birth to the likes of Khalid," the Prophet said. In old age, the general dictates his memoirs to a eunuch scribe, with a new perspective to all the blood he shed. In the desert oasis of Tadmor, twelve-year-old Rayah discovers the dangers of accepting her new religion and her own power. And in the desert of an earlier time, a childless woman works a spell. She spins power from heaven from which a love, a life and a deadly sword are forged. Her daughter will lead a desperate war--and recite Satanic Verses.

They have... books with these terrible, awe-inspiring Names... they know that the use of these mysterious Names, without due and careful preparation, brings with it calamity and premature death. -from the introduction How much ancient wisdom was lost in the medieval years! here laments Moses Gaster, one of the most prominent Jewish theologians and folklorists of the late 19th century. In 1896, he translated a fragmentary relic of Gnostic literature, a manuscript concerned with the many secret names of God believed by Kabbalists to wield enormous magical power, but in the discussion that here precedes the translation, Gaster acknowledges that this document only hints at the texts that may be lost forever. It remains a tantalizing peek into archaic occult mysteries. Jewish scholar MOSES GASTER (1856-1939) was born in Romania but emigrated to England, where he lectured at Oxford University. His wrote numerous books of theology, folklore, history, and literature, including History of Rumanian Popular Literature (1883) and five-volume Sephardic prayer book (1901-6).

What is the origin of the Holy Bible? Who wrote it, and how was it preserved and translated? What does it have to say about the future of Planet Earth and what does it teach regarding your own personal and eternal future? Each day, throughout the world, people take a King James Bible in their hands and read. Countless millions have found solace in its pages. Therein we find not only the path to Eternal Life, but we find the strength to endure the lives we now lead. We find guidance. We find hope. We can turn to many ancient texts for the "Who, What, Where, When and How?" of history. Only The Bible answers the question, "Why?" In The Sword Of Truth, Dr. Mark Edward Cody explores the origin, preservation and message of The Holy Bible. As the world plunges into chaos, there is a growing interest in the ancient prophecies of The Bible and what it has to say about the dark days ahead. God's Word offers light to illuminate the path and to comfort in times of trouble. In the pages of Scripture, we find not only the details of tomorrow's headlines, but hope for all Eternity. For over two thousand years, The Bible has influenced both commoners and kings. It has shaped nations and has been the subject of bitter conflict. It is the most popular book in the history of the world. Despite its influence, there are few who know the history of this ancient text. There are few who know the names of the Secretaries of God who took part in the translation of the Hebrew and Greek texts into the King James Bible, The most influential Book in the history of printing. The Sword Of Truth takes the reader on a mystic quest, not only to know the history of The Bible, but also to know The Author of The Bible.

The Book of Judith tells the story of a fictitious Jewish woman beheading the general of the most powerful imaginable army to free her people. The parabolic story was set as an example of how God will help the righteous. Judith's heroic action not only became a validating charter myth of Judaism itself but has also been appropriated by many Christian and secular groupings, and has been an inspiration for numerous literary texts and works of art. It continues to exercise its power over artists, authors and academics and is becoming a major field of research in its own right. The Sword of Judith is the first multidisciplinary collection of essays to discuss representations of Judith throughout the centuries. It transforms our understanding across a wide range of disciplines. The collection includes new archival source studies, the translation of unpublished manuscripts, the translation of texts unavailable in English, and Judith images and music.

The Sword For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Heb. 4:12) In defining a sword we know that it is a bladed weapon, used primarily for cutting or thrusting. The sword consists of a straight blade with two edges, usually extremely sharp. The objective of a sword in battle was to maim or inflict painful and severe wounds to the body of their enemy, by means of mangling, mutilating, and injuring to render the opponent helpless, and if these methods were unsuccessful, the last resort was to take the life of their opponent by killing. Just as the natural sword had its uses, even so the spiritual sword? The natural sword may maim or kill physically, while the spiritual sword renders the demonic host helpless through its destroying power. We must always keep in mind as believers that we have authority through the word of God which is symbolized by the sword. In history, the sword is said to be the emblem of military honor, such as in the medieval times when someone was honored as a knight by a monarch or political leader for service to their country. This was carried out by touching the shoulders of the honored person with the sword. Though there are many types of swords, the main concept was the same throughout history, to protect and defend. In the above mentioned scripture, the sword was used as a symbol of the word of God! A proper sword in its making was tempered very carefully, meaning that it was heated at a certain temperature, beaten into form by a sword-smith on an anvil and cooled at a predetermined degree to ensure its effectiveness. The reason for fashioning the sword in this manner was to ensure that when the combatant entered into battle, the sword would be able to withstand all the attacks of their adversary by absorbing the shock of their weapons without shattering. Even so when we’re engaged in spiritual warfare, we cannot afford to have our emotions interfere with the operation of the spiritual weaponry. It is not the Word of God that ever falters, but when one deals in unrighteousness, such as forgiveness and bitterness, these character flaws causes the word to become ineffective in our hands. Just as the natural sword has to be tempered for effectiveness in battle, in like manner, we too must be tempered by bringing our bodies into subjection to the will of God. Not being tempered enough in our selves, gives the allusion that the sword is not pliable; however it is we that are unstable and when the word is not activated in our lives this causes us to break as well. Often times when dealing with conflict it may be difficult to discern who is telling the truth because the parties having the conflict are both liked in their circle of associates. Before there were lie detectors, there was God, giving the discerning of spirits and the word of knowledge to help bring about truth. The sword is also a discerner of the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Let me share a story with you about a boy who said to a girl friend of his, “I will give you all of my marbles, if you give me all of your candy.” So the night before the exchange, the boy took out some of his favorite marbles. The next morning the exchange was made, but the young man was unsettled all day. The question is why was he unsettled? The reason was, the boy had taken out some of his favorite marbles, and was wondering, if the girl had taken out some of her favorite candy. The truth is, if the girl had asked the boy if he had given her all the marbles and he said yes, he would have lied. The Sword of Solomon will teach you how the Word enables you to become more sensitive in the Spirit to rightly divide who is dealing with truth and who is dealing in deceit. The sword as a discerner of truth, is able to pinpoint whether something is proceeding out

How an evolving spiritual journey leads to an unshakeable faith Eighty years after the Scopes Monkey Trial made a spectacle of Christian fundamentalism and brought national attention to her hometown, Rachel Held Evans faced a trial of her own when she began to have doubts about her faith. In Faith Unraveled, Rachel recounts growing up in a culture obsessed with apologetics, struggling as her own faith unraveled one unexpected question at a time. In order for her faith to survive, Rachel realizes, it must adapt to change and evolve. Using as an illustration her own spiritual journey from certainty to doubt to faith, Evans challenges you to disentangle your faith from false fundamentals and to trust in a God who is big enough to handle your tough questions. In a changing cultural environment where new ideas seem to threaten the safety and security of the faith, Faith Unraveled is a fearlessly honest story of survival.
