Description : Hiding behind the Muslim woman’s veil is a heart longing for honor but often covered in shame. Meeting her will transform us all. Muslim women are coming out of hiding and telling their stories. With courageous voices, they disclose tales of shame and a fierce desire to be valued. We hold our breath as they whisper accounts of Jesus dressed in light, coming to them in dreams, offering honor in the place of shame, freedom instead of oppression. Their tales narrate a secret reality for all of us. We all long to be known, to be valued, to be rescued. We all are in desperate need of a Savior. In Covered Glory, you will meet Muslim women living in a culture with an honor-shame worldview that perpetuates their shame. As you discover how these women find freedom when they uncover their true identity, you will find that shame affects each one of us. Learn that while… shame tells us we are unworthy, truth tells us we were made to be loved shame tells us we are nobody, Jesus tells us, “You are somebody to me” shame tells us we are broken, God’s Word tells us healing comes from him It is only when we begin to understand the honor-shame gospel that we are set free. And so is our Muslim neighbor when we learn to tell her of the love of Jesus in a language she understands: the language of honor and shame.
Description : In 1 Corinthians 11, the Apostle Paul provides important instructions about two symbolic practices within Christianity. The most well-known of these practices is the Lord's Supper, found in the second half of 1 Corinthians 11. However, in the first half of the same chapter, Paul teaches about the relationships between God and His people. He explains that these relationships -- and the glory of the Lord -- are symbolically represented when men and women cover (or uncover) their heads during times of prayer. God uses Scripture to provide His good direction in the lives of His people – but how should believers today respond to this passage? What does it take to gain a well-grounded understanding of the practice that Paul is discussing? And why did it matter to God whether or not Christian women covered their heads when they prayed? This book carefully navigates these questions by considering the relevant details of both the New Testament passage and First Century Corinthian culture. ======= This book is a companion volume to the book, "Headcovering Throughout Christian History."
Description : The battle of Gettysburg was the largest engagement of the Civil War, and--with more than 51,000 casualties--also the deadliest. The highest regimental casualty rate at Gettysburg, an estimated 85 percent, was incurred by the 26th North Carolina Infantry. Who were these North Carolinians? Why were they at Gettysburg? How did they come to suffer such a grievous distinction? In Covered with Glory, award-winning historian Rod Gragg reveals the extraordinary story of the 26th North Carolina in fascinating detail. Praised for its "exhaustive scholarship" and its "highly readable style," Covered with Glory chronicles the 26th's remarkable odyssey from muster near Raleigh to surrender at Appomattox. The central focus of the book, however, is the regiment's critical, tragic role at Gettysburg, where its standoff with the heralded 24th Michigan Infantry on the first day of fighting became one of the battle's most unforgettable stories. Two days later, the 26th's bloodied remnant assaulted the Federal line at Cemetery Ridge and gained additional fame for advancing "farthest to the front" in the Pickett-Pettigrew Charge.
Description : The author of this book, SERGEANT-MAJOR GEORGES LAFOND, of the Territorial Hussars, was in South America at the time of mobilization. He returned to France as soon as possible and joined his corps, but asked to be assigned as intelligence officer to the machine-gun sections of the first regiment of Colonial Infantry. With this picked corps, which has been decimated several times, he took part in the engagements in Champagne, on the Somme, at Lihons, Dompierre, Herbècourt, and notably in the days from the first to the fifth of July, where the regiment earned its second citation and received the fourragère. Lafond was discharged after the battles of Maisonnette, and wrote this book of recollections in the hospital at Abbeville, and afterwards at Montpellier, where he had to undergo a severe operation. Sergeant-Major Lafond’s narrative makes no claim to literary pretension, but it is simply a collection of actual occurrences. It is a series of short narratives which give the life of a company of machine gunners from the day of its formation to the hour when it was so decimated that it had to be reorganized with men from other corps.

Description : Writing this book has been an inspiration to me. I must give my dad and mom (founders of Fishers of Men Campaigners), the late Pastor Rudolph Chance and my mom, who is still with us, the credit for the teachings on the covering and the oneness between the man and the women. To Be Covered or Not to Be Covered not only teaches on the covering but also provides assistance with the relationship between the man and the woman, husband and wife, and most importantly the relationship that both male and female should have with the Lord Jesus. Up coming books include Helpmeet. This is the teaching on the role of the woman in the body of Christ, in the home, in church, and in society. I Want You Back is a selection of poetry that includes a poem called “Adam Cry.” This poem is about Adam after he sinned and what he may have experienced emotionally through the author’s point of view. It also includes poems on love and relationship with God and each other.
