The author has created a character from the early 1700s-Thomas Doty, who lives on a family farm outside of Whitemarsh, Pennsylvania. He meets a weathered sea captain who is down on his luck and short of hands aboard his sloop, the "Shannon." Intrigued by adventure, Thomas goes to sea, but ends up shipwrecked and seized by a band of surly cutthroat pirates. Now, amid the designs of some sordid brigands well-acquainted with wanton cruelty, Thomas wonders if his courage and cunning can release him from his captors' wily schemes. His escape from them only hurls him into challenges fraught with unforeseen circumstances as he journeys homeward and beyond, discovering the distant frontier of western Pennsylvania and the Ohio country teeming with Mingo, Delaware, Shawnee, and Seneca Indians intent on preserving their culture from the ever-encroaching whites. As Thomas negotiates with death on the one hand and life on the other, survival forces him onward. He encounters English and French traders and finds friends, love, and a mortal enemy as he endures life within the turmoil of the French and Indian War, Pontiac's Rebellion, and the siege of Fort Pitt.

Daniel thinks that saints are boring and that going to church is a waste of time - until he discovers a mysterious cross that will change the world as he knows it. When Daniel discovers a mysterious cross he is transported back in time to Ancient Rome where he meets George, a young, Christian soldier who has been forced to resign for refusing to offer a sacrifice to the Roman gods. Things go from bad to worse when Emperor Diocletian declares Christianity illegal. Churches are destroyed, sacred texts are burned and all citizens are required to make a public sacrifice to the gods - or face death. Daniel wants more than anything to go home, back to the safety of the 21st century but can't figure out how. He's not even sure how he got here. When George is arrested Daniel is devastated. What will he do? Can he save George? Save himself? As the Great Persecution rages Daniel must find the courage to stand up for his faith...and to find his way home.

St George's Day has become a topic of debate as more and more organizations promote celebrations on 23 April and more people wave the flag of St George to proclaim their allegiance and identity. But who was St George? How did this Near Eastern martyr become England's patron saint and an icon of English culture? And what is his relevance for today's secular, multicultural England? New research reveals that from the third century St George was revered as a healer, protector of women and the poor and patron of agriculture and metal-working more than a military dragon-slayer. Discover the origin of the cross of St George and the roles of Richard I, Edward III and Henry VIII in making St George the patron saint of England. With a foreword by Professor Emeritus Dan Brown, this richly-illustrated celebration of English culture shows how St George can be reinterpreted for our times while remaining true to our English heritage. St George can be enlisted in the cause of ecology, the campaign against FGM, and the fight to end modern slavery and resettle refugees. English yet international, revered both by Christians and Muslims, St George is a multicultural figure who symbolizes universal values.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 63. Chapters: Fleur-de-lis, Savoy knot, St George's Cross, Fylfot, List of heraldic charges, Crown, Senyera, Broad arrow, Wolfsangel, Roundel, Vol, Star, Lozenge, Sun, Rose, Label, Sun in splendour, Millrind, Stafford knot, Baton sinister, Goutte, Torse, Hammer and pick, Hinckaert knot, Bowen knot, Shakespeare knot, Heraldic knot, Dacre knot, Wake knot, Annulet, Hungerford knot. Excerpt: This article does not cover those charges which derive their shape in part from that of the field; see Ordinary (heraldry). The personal arms of Anne, Princess Royal displayed on a lozengeA few simple charges are traditionally, and arbitrarily, classified among the subordinaries. (All other mobile charges are called common charges.) A lozenge is a rhombus, similar to the diamond of playing-cards (though its sides are never concave). A narrower lozenge may be called a fusil. A mascle is a lozenge voided, i.e. with a lozenge-shaped hole; a rustre is a lozenge pierced, i.e. with a round hole. A billet is a rectangle, sometimes representing a sheet of paper or a piece of firewood. Its long side is normally vertical. A circular ring is called an annulet; a solid circle is called a roundel. Though the taboo is not invariably respected, British heraldry in particular, and to a greater or lesser extent the heraldry of other countries, frowns on depictions of God or Christ, though an exception may be in the not-uncommon Continental depictions of Madonna and Child, including the Black Madonna in the arms of Marija Bistrica, Croatia. The Virgin, St. John the Apostle and St. Mary Magdalene lamenting the body of Christ taken down from the Cross" the arms of Pinggau, Steiermark, Austria The Devil being defeated by an archangel (probably St. Michael).The Devil (or a demon), freestanding (depicted differently than the devil in the foregoing).
