As a born-again Christian, you have a glorious heritage in Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The Bible constantly teaches concerning the power of the Jew and Gentile family of God. Victor Schlatter, a passionate church planter and Bible translator in the Australasia area, will open your eyes to the scriptural reality that there always has been and always will be one family of Abraham. He shows how the Church will not be ready as the Bride of Christ until all Jewish components of the covenant promises are fulfilled. Only then will all things close at the end of the ages as the Bible decrees!
Oliver Goldsmith arrived in England in 1756 a penni Irishman.
He toiled for years in the anonymity of Grub Street already a synonym for impoverished hack writers before he became one of literary London s most celebrated authors. Norma Clarke tells the extraordinary story of this destitute scribbler turned gentleman of letters as it unfolds in the early days of commercial publishing, when writers livelihoods came to depend on the reading public, not aristocratic patrons. Clarke examines a network of writers radiating outward from Goldsmith: the famous and celebrated authors of Dr. Johnson s Club and those far fortunate brothers of the quill trapped in Grub Street. Clarke emphasizes Goldsmith s sense of himself as an Irishman, showing that many of his early literary acquaintances were Irish emigres: Samuel Derrick, John Pilkington, Paul Hiffernan, and Edward Purdon. These writers tutored Goldsmith in the ways of Grub Street, and their influence on his development has not previously been explored. Also Irish was the patron he acquired after 1764, Robert Nugent, Lord Clare. Clarke places Goldsmith in the tradition of Anglo-Irish satirists beginning with Jonathan Swift. He transmuted troubling truths about the British Empire into forms of fable and nostalgia whose undertow of Irish indignation remains perceptible, if just barely, beneath an equanimous English surface. To read Brothers of the Quill is to be taken by the hand into the darker corners of eighteenth-century Grub Street, and to laugh and cry at the absurdities of the writing life. "

Cuando el comerciante libre Chaka Gutionov encuentra una gigantesca cosmonave de cientos de años de antigüedad, una extraña alianza se forma para resolver el misterio de su aparición, incluyendo al miembro del Gran Consejo Leonardo Sonnenborn-Rico, que guarda un terrible secreto: hace cuarenta y tres años, estuvo dentro de esa cosmonave y apenas pudo escapar con vida. A medida que se adentran en las profundidades de la cosmonave, descubren que no ha reaparecido por casualidad y que todas las razas de la galaxia se encuentran en grave peligro.
