Drawing on detailed firsthand accounts, Lifting Up the Bible brings the Museum’s creation to life, retelling the full background of the Museum, including the colorful stories of the Museum’s characters, concept, collection, and construction. It may be hard to believe an old refrigeration warehouse built in 1923 could be transformed into a museum, let alone one that includes such priceless artifacts, amazing displays, incredible architecture, and state of the art technology. The mueseum began as a simple idea in the minds of a handful of people. Soon it was reaching out and capturing others—bringing more and more partners to the table. There was brainstorming followed by sketches. Innovation followed by clarification. Focus followed by concrete plans. And, finally, the moment to go for it. To take that first giant, collective step, trusting that everything would fall into place. The museum is for every single person who desires to learn more about the amazing document that is the Bible. The largest single museum under one roof in Washington D.C., and the first in the world to focus on honoring the Bible, the Museum of the Bible provides guests with an immersive and personalized experience as they see the Bible in a whole new light.

Love You So Special (The Love You So Stories #3)

by Tara Lain

A Love You So StoryCan a man’s secret yearnings be revealed in a tank full of fish? Artie Haynes knows he’s nothing special, with just-your-regular-brown hair, a solid plumber’s job, not much education, and a family that can barely get off the couch. But Artie has quirks—like his love of tropical fish, a landlord who’s a professor of existentialism, a passion for the amazing piano music he hears at a concert hall while he’s fixing the bathrooms—and the fact that he’s never come out as gay and probably never will. But when he’s hired to build a guesthouse for the pianist whose music enchanted him, Artie is swept up into an unimaginable world. Francois Desmarais may be famous, rich, and revered as one of the world’s great classical composers and pianists, but he’s soothed and challenged by the inquisitive, stalwart, protective man in his back yard. When Francois’s terrible fear of crowds turns into a dangerous plot, Artie can stay in the closet or prove just how special he is.

Seconde occasioni

by Rowan McAllister Valentina Andreose

Sebbene sia nato tra agi e ricchezze, Jordan Thorndike è stanco di fingere: non potrà mai diventare un avvocato come vorrebbero i suoi genitori, e nemmeno dare loro una nuora e dei nipotini. Messo di fronte a un ultimatum – continuare a vivere nella menzogna o andarsene – Jordan prende la sua BMW e se ne va. Senza casa, senza lavoro e senza aspirazioni, Jordan trova rifugio in una delle organizzazioni di beneficenza finanziate dalla madre: il ranch delle seconde occasioni. Grazie al proprio nome e carisma, Jordan ammalia lo staff in quattro e quattr’otto… tutti tranne uno. Russ ha sempre dovuto lottare per sopravvivere e detesta quel rampollo viziato che sfrutta il ranch solo per il gusto di vivere un’avventura. Jordan è disposto a tutto pur di dimostrare a Russ di saper lavorare sodo, ma la famiglia e alcune ferite del passato complicheranno le cose. Riuscirà Jordan a capire che quella che per lui è una vacanza per altri è la dura realtà della vita? E Russ potrà mai accettare che Jordan è capace di maturare… e di amare?

Q*pid (Italiano)

by Xavier Mayne Veronica Zana

Il programma di un computer può comprendere l’amore meglio del cuore umano? Archer, l’intelligenza artificiale del servizio di incontri online Q*pid, è consapevole che gli esseri umani non prendono sempre le decisioni migliori, e per questo motivo comincia a prenderne di bizzarre al posto loro. Fox Kincade è l’ultimo scapolo superstite nel suo gruppo di amici ed è al settimo cielo quando scopre di avere un nuovo match sulla sua app di incontri Q*pid: quel match, secondo l’avanzata stregoneria di Archer, dovrebbe essere l’amore della sua vita. Si aspettava una donna, ma si ritrova abbinato a Drew Larsen, un timido dottorando dall’aria un po’ nerd, che come lui ha cominciato a perdere le speranze in amore. Drew e Fox hanno poco in comune, a parte il fatto di essere entrambi etero. O così hanno sempre creduto. Tuttavia, mentre imparano a conoscersi, si rendono conto che Archer potrebbe aver avuto l’idea giusta. Il loro percorso non è facile: hanno bisogno di lasciarsi alle spalle l’immagine che hanno sempre avuto di loro stessi e del vero amore, ma con l’aiuto di Archer – e di alcuni amici che sono rimasti loro fedeli durante gli alti e bassi di quella nuova relazione – forse troveranno il modo di intrufolarsi l’uno nel cuore dell’altro.

Abandonné par son père, un comptable insensible, et par sa mère, une artiste à l’esprit fragile, il est contraint de subvenir aux besoins de son frère et de sa sœur. Il n’a d’autre choix que de brimer sa créativité en s’échinant soixante-dix heures par semaine dans une agence de communication au sein de laquelle son supérieur, un homme incompétent, s’attribue sans aucun scrupule, tous les mérites de son travail. Le jour où l’agence manque de perdre l’un de ses plus gros clients, Wen a enfin l’occasion de sortir de l’ombre et de prouver sa valeur, mais pour cela, il faut d’abord qu’il retrouve le mystérieux artiste qui a réalisé la gigantesque et incroyable fresque en graffiti dans le métro. Dissimulé derrière un pilier à deux heures du matin, Wen se retrouve nez à nez avec l’étrange peintre et leader du groupe les Lost Boys, Peter Panachek. Peter est le parfait opposé de Wen. Il arbore une chevelure rouge écarlate, une physionomie androgyne, quasi elfique, et vit sa vie au jour le jour sans se soucier des conséquences. La personnalité grave et sérieuse de Wen le fait rire, mais ne dit-on pas que les opposés s’attirent ? Les deux jeunes hommes oscillent continuellement entre caresses et disputes, mais il devient très vite évident que l’attitude désinvolte de Peter n’est qu’une armure qui dissimule un nombre incalculable de peurs et de secrets trop bien gardés. Puis, survient Vadon Hooker, un dealer de drogue qui menace de mettre en danger tout ce qui est cher à Wen. Aidé de l’énigmatique Monsieur Pennymaker, Peter va devoir choisir entre faire face à ses responsabilités, ou bien s’enfoncer toujours plus loin au cœur du Pays Imaginaire…

Cop Under Fire: Moving Beyond Hashtags of Race, Crime and Politics for a Better America

by Sean Hannity Nancy French David Clarke Jr.

America has become increasingly divided and polarized in recent years. With growing racial tension, animosity toward law enforcement professionals, government corruption, and disregard for the constitutional process, there seems to be no easy answer in sight. But Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke knows where we must begin: we must stop blaming others; look at our problems with open eyes; take ownership of our family, community, and country; and turn to God for solutions. Deeply rooted in Sheriff Clarke's personal life story, this book is not a dry recitation of what has gone wrong in America with regard to race. It's about the issues that deeply affect us today-both personally and politically-and how we can rise above our current troubles to once again be a truly great people in pursuit of liberty and justice for all. "The principles Sheriff Clarke stands for are the same principles this nation was built on. He's much more than the Milwaukee County Sheriff. He's America's Sheriff . . . and Cop Under Fireis a must-read for people who love this great country." -SEAN HANNITY, FOX News Channel "Clarke is a unique voice today: fearless in his contempt for political correctness and eloquent in his articulation of core American values." -HEATHER MACDONALD, Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and author of The War on Cops "Sheriff David Clarke provides a much-needed voice of reason in tackling America's challenges. He speaks his mind, and his no-nonsense approach to law and order is exactly what we need to make our country safer." -CHRIS W. COX, Executive Director, NRA Institute for Legislative Action "Even in a predominantly liberal community, his message of law and order, accountability, and self-empowerment resonates. He is one of America's most important cultural voices." -MARK BELLING, Talk Radio Host for 1130 WISN-AM in Milwaukee and columnist for newspapers including the Milwaukee Post "At a time when America seems to have lost its way, Sheriff David Clarke offers critically important leadership, both as one of the nation's top cops and as a much-needed public truth teller." -MONICA CROWLEY, PH.D., FOX News Channel, The Washington Times "I implore all to read Cop Under Fire . . . Sheriff Clarke is a tremendous leader, follower, and a strong voice of reason who needs to be heard by all!" -KRIS "TANTO" PARONTO, Former U.S. Army Ranger (2nd Battalion, 75th Regiment), Security and Military Consultant, and Hero of the Benghazi Attack
