Description : My days are numbered, and so I want you to know youre neither too bad nor bad enough to receive what some folks may have had planned for you. Some folks participate in control and use violence, oppression and the law of man to do criminal things to usually the innocent and/or those put in a defenceless position. They use their positions of authority to kill, maim and torture people who stray and for recourse swim in the blood of indifference. So, I wrote many books that puts their taboo on a short leash. So here we are toe to toe. Ive smoked packages of cigarettes a day far almost 40 years and have come to the conclusion that those whose mercy and trusting nature need a little more understanding because the fraud of the spiritually blind only meet out bogus control which when endured like a mouse is their cooperation. They cheat, they steal, they lie and they kill for this. So, enjoy it, this small fragment of unwavering hard core discipline that isnt afraid of neither anything nor anyone besides Christ Jesus when he is furious.
Description : The Book of Joby is an epic fantasy complete in one volume. Lucifer and the Creator have entered, yet again, into a wager they've made many times before, but this time, the existence of creation itself is balanced on the outcome. Born in California during the twilight years of a weary millennium, nine year old Joby Peterson dreams of blazing like a bonfire against the gathering darkness of his times, like a knight of the Round Table. Instead, he is subjected to a life of crippling self-doubt and relentless mediocrity inflicted by an enemy he did nothing to earn and cannot begin to comprehend. Though imperiled themselves, the angels are forbidden to intervene. Left to struggle with their own loyalties and the question of obedience, they watch Lucifer work virtually unhindered to turn Joby's heart of gold into ash and stone while God sits by, seemingly unconcerned. And so when he is grown to manhood, Joby's once luminous love of life seems altogether lost, and Lucifer's victory assured. What hope remains lies hidden in the beauty, warmth, and innocence of a forgotten seaside village whose odd inhabitants seem to defy the modern world's most inflexible assumptions, and in the hearts of Joby's long lost youthful love and her emotionally wounded son. But the ravenous forces of destruction that follow Joby into this concealed paradise plan to use these same things to bring him and his world to ruin. As the final struggle unfolds, one question occupies every mind in heaven and in hell. Which will prove stronger, love or rage? The Book of Joby is an instant classic of contemporary fantasy. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Description : The church has been inundated in recent years with literature emphasizing the relational and the value of community. David Auten provides an alternative perspective and counterbalance, bringing our attention back to the other indispensable side to the communal--the individual and the sacredness of the self. Eccentricity is a sustained meditation on this strange and fundamental fact: there has never been, nor will there ever be, another you. You are inescapably and irrevocably different. But what does your difference mean? And who are "you" really? Weaving together insights from Calvin, Caussade, Jung, Derrida, Wolterstorff, and others, Auten guides the reader through a spiritual exploration of the difference implicit in being a self, the divine calling to make a difference, and the interconnectedness of the two. The result is an arresting bricolage reminding us of the wonderfully eccentric nature of human existence.
