A Continual Feast : Words of comfort and celebration, Collected by Father Tim

by Jan Karon

A collection of Father Tim's favorite words of wisdom and spiritual inspiration--from the bestselling author of At Home in Mitford and Somebody Safe with Somebody Good For years, Mitford's Father Tim Kavanagh has transcribed into his dog-eared journals words of wisdom, faith, and encouragement. Written in his own hand or typed on his idiosyncratic Royal typewriter, A Continual Feast contains the lively ideas, common sense, profound wisdom, and plain good humor he has gleaned from the likes of C. S. Lewis, Emily Dickinson, William Blake, Helen Keller, G. K. Chesterton, and Will Rogers, to name just a few. Together with its successful companion volume, Patches of Godlight, Father Tim's latest quote journal is sure proof of the truth of an entry from Lord Byron: "A small drop of ink produces that which makes thousands think."

Contra todo enemigo

by Tom Clancy Peter Telep

El ex-SEAL de la Armada Maxwell Moore--quien trabaja encubierto para la División de Actividades Especiales de la CIA--llega a una cita para hacerse cargo de un prisionero talibán de alto rango. Pero la reunión de un giro terrible que ni Moore ni ninguno de sus jefes veía venir. Sin dejarse intimidar, no teniendo el fracaso como opción, Moore continúa su búsqueda de la verdad, dejando muchos muertos a su paso...asesinados por aquellos para quienes el secreto es la mayor de las armas. Luego llega una revelación impactante: Dos de las mayores amenazas para la seguridad de los Estados Unidos han foriado una alianza nefasta. Después de años de planificación, los talibanes han llegado a un acuerdo con un despiadado cartel de drogas mexicano par el que suministrarán opio. Para el cartel, es una cuestión de dinero, poder y control absoluto del tráfico de drogas. Pero para los talibanes es una oportunidad largamente esperada: explotar los carteles a llevar el fuego de la yihad al corazón de los infieles. *Publishers Weekly
