Afghanistan was an American crusade to win the cold war against the “Evil Soviet Empire” and remake the world in its own image. Our telling goes right to the heart of understanding what really happened to America with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Instead of fulfilling the Western Dream, the US trapped itself in its own nightmare of endless war. Now Americans long for a spiritual regeneration towards peace. No one seems able to make the process move in the right direction. Over four decades we assimilated an understanding of how to envision moving from war as an honorable sacrifice to peace that serves all. Our two-part novelized memoir delivers a revelatory look at how we came to that awareness through worldly and otherworldly encounters with many fascinating people along the way. -The Valediction: Three Nights of Desmond Part 1 combines Three Days of the Condor and JFK as journalist Paul Fitzgerald unravels the deep state mystery behind the unsolved 1979 assassination of U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan Adolph Dubs. Dubs' death changed the world as much as JFK's but few even know his name. In a serendipitous encounter at the Kabul Hotel during his investigation, Paul meets a

Moses Wilhelm Shapira's infamous Deuteronomy fragments - long believed to be forgeries - are authentic ancient manuscripts, and they are of far greater significance than ever imagined. The literary work that these manuscripts preserve - which Idan Dershowitz calls "The Valediction of Moses" or "V" - is not based on the book of Deuteronomy. On the contrary, V is a much earlier version of Deuteronomy. In other words, V is a proto-biblical book, the likes of which has never before been seen. This conclusion is supported by a series of philological analyses, as well as previously unknown archival documents, which undermine the consensus on these manuscripts. An excursus co-authored with Na'ama Pat-El assesses V's linguistic profile, finding it to be consistent with Iron Age epigraphic Hebrew. V contains early versions of passages whose biblical counterparts reflect substantial post-Priestly updating. Moreover, unlike the canonical narratives of Deuteronomy, this ancient work shows no signs of influence from the Deuteronomic law code. Indeed, V preserves an earlier, and dramatically different, literary structure for the entire work - one that lacks the Deuteronomic law code altogether. These findings have significant consequences for the composition history of the Bible, historical linguistics, the history of religion, paleography, archaeology, and more. The volume includes a full critical edition and English translation of V.

Uneasy about the impending responsibilities of adulthood, July can’t figure out where she wants her life to go. When romance ignites with Toby, a middle-aged man shell-shocked by the dissolution of his family, July clings to the idea that a future with Toby might save her from the decisions of post-university life. In an attempt to celebrate his divorce and new relationship, Toby takes July on a winter trip to Florence, Italy, where the vacation romance devolves into ruminations on disappointment, failure, and the future. The appearance of enigmatic, charming Massimo awakens in July the excitement of possibility and chance, but mires her further in her doubts. Meanwhile, Toby’s ex-wife remarries almost immediately, sending him into a tailspin. A wry, often humorous novel about loss, discovery, and family, A Valediction examines the way we delude ourselves ­— and the repercussions that result.

His poetry is noted for its vibrancy of language and inventiveness of metaphor, especially compared to that of his contemporaries.

Disciplining Christians reconsiders several of Augustine's most well-known letter exchanges. It reads these correspondences with close attention to conventional epistolary norms and practices, in an effort to identify and analyze Augustine's adaptation of the traditionally friendly letter exchange to the correction of perceived error in the Christian community.
