“The Risen is an important novel — and an intriguing one — from one of our master storytellers. In its pages, the past rises up, haunting and chiding, demanding answers of us all.” —The News & Observer New York Times bestselling author Ron Rash demonstrates his superb narrative skills in this suspenseful and evocative tale of two brothers whose lives are altered irrevocably by the events of one long-ago summer, one bewitching young woman—and the secrets that could destroy their lives. While swimming in a secluded creek on a hot Sunday in 1969, sixteen-year-old Eugene and his older brother, Bill, meet the entrancing Ligeia. A sexy, free-spirited redhead from Daytona Beach banished to their small North Carolina town, Ligeia entrances the brothers, especially Eugene, who is drawn to her raw sensuality and rebellious attitude. Eugene begins to move farther and farther away from his brother, the cautious and dutiful Bill, and when Ligeia vanishes as suddenly as she appeared, the growing rift between the two brothers becomes immutable. Decades later, the once close brothers now lead completely different lives. Bill is a gifted and successful surgeon, and a paragon of the community, while Eugene, the town reprobate, is a failed writer and determined alcoholic. When a shocking reminder of the past unexpectedly surfaces, Eugene is plunged back into that fateful summer, and the girl he cannot forget. The deeper Eugene delves into his memories, the closer he comes to finding the truth. But can Eugene’s recollections be trusted? And will the truth set him free and offer salvation . . . or destroy his damaged life and everyone he loves?

Information and the ways in which it is presented in this book evolves from a multitude of vibrantly complex yet deceptively subtle systems of interwoven Risen and Earthly cosmologies, psychologies, philosophies, sciences, mysticisms, witticisms; ancient and modern arts of drama and healing; child, animal, plant, and devic wisdom and humor. This book is designed to stimulate and help discover and explore your most personal feelings; it will be different for each reader. It is not a book of definite answers but of continuous consideration. Each of us is our own Inner Scientist, Architect, Conductor, and Taste Tester - exploring, discovering, observing, and gathering information while continually asking questions and puzzling about many things. Interpenetrating this book is an adjustable framework designed to support, adapt and guide. Embracing it is an orchestrated Risen performance of grace, offering to bring uplifted meaning to the temporary but often terribly empty and lonely darkness of our grief.

A Powerful Novelization from Bestselling Author Angela Hunt Epic in scope, yet deeply personal, this novelization offers a unique perspective on the story of the resurrection. Roman Tribune Clavius is assigned by Pilate to keep the radical followers of the recently executed Yeshua from stealing the body and inciting revolution. When the body goes missing despite his precautions, Clavius must hunt it down. His investigation leads him from the halls of Herod Antipas to the Garden of Gethsemane and brings him in touch with believer and doubter alike. But as the body still remains missing, Clavius commits to a quest for the truth--and answers that will not only shake his life but echo throughout all of history.

What would happen if believers truly grasped how the resurrection of Jesus changes not just their own standing with God, but that it changes everything? In the spirit of John Piper's Fifty Reasons Why Christ Came to Die, Steven D. Mathewson unpacks the New Testament Scriptures that speak of the reasons Jesus was raised from the dead. In fifty brief chapters, he offers readers faith-filled meditations on the primary passages on the resurrection, taking these ancient truths and applying them to contemporary life. With compelling insight, he shows why Jesus not only had to die, but why his resurrection was necessary and how our lives change when we understand and embrace this essential truth of the Christian faith.

From the acclaimed author of Fine Prey, Polymorph, and Evolution's Darling (Philip K. Dick Award special citation and a New York Times Notable Book) comes a sweeping epic, The Risen Empire, Scott Westerfeld's dazzling hardcover debut. The undead Emperor has ruled his mighty interstellar empire of eighty human worlds for sixteen hundred years. Because he can grant a form of eternal life, creating an elite known as the Risen, his power has been absolute. He and his sister, the Child Empress, who is eternally a little girl, are worshiped as living gods. No one can touch them. Not until the Rix, machine-augmented humans who worship very different gods: AI compound minds of planetary extent. The Rix are cool, relentless fanatics, and their only goal is to propagate such AIs throughout the galaxy. They seek to end, by any means necessary, the Emperor's prolonged tyranny of one and supplant it with an eternal cybernetic dynasty of their own. They begin by taking the Child Empress hostage. Captain Laurent Zai of the Imperial Frigate Lynx is tasked with her rescue. Separated by light-years, bound by an unlikely love, Zai and pacifist senator Nara Oxham must each in their own way, face the challenge of the Rix, and they each will hold the fate of the empire in their hands. The Risen Empire is the first great space opera of the twenty-first century. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

1917. As war and revolution consume the world, the End Times have arrived. With the apocalypse imminent, the world needs a hero to push back this tide of darkness and save all from the return of the Antichrist. But where is Poldek Tacit, the only Inquisitor able to compete against such daunting odds? Old allies unite in a desperate race to unmask and stop the Antichrist before he can assume dominion over all lands and nations, while the Darkest Hand squeezes any remaining hope from those who wish to find an end to the war which has already claimed countless lives. The final chapter in The Darkest Hand trilogy serves up a fitting, fast-paced and action-packed finale to this epic work of dark fiction, where long-buried secrets within the vaults of the Vatican are unveiled and mankind’s hopes of redemption from the forces of evil hang by a single, precarious thread.

Alan Thompson's aim is to offer a biblical-theological framework for interpreting the book of Acts, so that Luke's major themes may be identified and related to the book as a whole. He especially highlights Acts as an account of the 'continuing story' ofGod's saving purposes: Luke intends his work to read in the light of Old Testament promises and the continuing reign of Christ in the inaugurated kingdom of God.

It was shadow. A dark mass that was both visible and invisible, opaque and transparent - a shadow with dimension - darkness with volume. An ominous sound of hushed mutters seemed to sigh out from within the darkness itself as the Hunter continued to expand it. The misty shadows stretched forth, as if to get a feel for the surroundings. This was where the Dark Ones got their name.. For over fifty years, a war has been raging. Threatened by the Dark Ones, Man has agreed to a system of partnerships, forming a new way of life with phoenixes, winged horses, and dragons. Children are taught at a young age to fight for what is right and to trust in the One. As war ravages the land, eight children will learn how to defend themselves, their friends, families, and homelands. The son of a king, the daughter of a queen, a descendant of an underground fighter, and a child of the forest will choose four others and unite, unwittingly setting a prophecy in motion as the Dark Ones initiate a new offensive. Will the eight be able to halt this advancement, or will more of the world fall into darkness? Jessica Lynn Campos is an engineering student at Oklahoma State University. Between classes, she enjoys reading, playing games and guitar, and, of course, writing. Her ideas stem from a strong Christian faith and from watching the world around her, especially her family. Her mother, father, sister, and three brothers were the inspiration for many of the characters. They were also her support when she looked to publish. She gives credit to God, who made everything fall into place at the right time. Without Him, nothing would be possible. Gal 6:17

A legion of ancient evil trapped one man, exiling him to tombs of darkness and shame. His days and nights were consumed by a never ending torture, one that he tried in vain to silence through self-mutilation. The outcast known for centuries as The Maniac was forsaken by an entire nation, including the ones he loved the most. He lived in hopeless despair, sorrow that nearly pulled him into the edges of eternity until the day that The Nazarene arrived on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, bringing redemption with him. The chains were broken. His sanity was restored. His scars of guilt and shame were covered, and he at last found rest in the salvation offered only through the man called Christ. But what happened when Jesus and his disciples left? What became of the man that was told simply: "Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee?" What difficulties did this once possessed man face as he made the lonely walk back into the village, absent from the presence of his Savior? How many shunned him? Was he mocked? Chased away by the very people that once called him brother, son, friend? This speculative look into the journey taken by a man set free from the bondage of sin walks the line between fear and faith, exploring the depths of man's depravity and God's forgiveness. Who, or what, will conquer in the end?
