The Face of Battle: A Study of Agincourt, Waterloo, and the Somme

by John Keegan

Military historian John Keegan's groundbreaking analysis of combat and warfareThe Face of Battle is military history from the battlefield: a look at the direct experience of individuals at the "point of maximum danger." Without the myth-making elements of rhetoric and xenophobia, and breaking away from the stylized format of battle descriptions, John Keegan has written what is probably the definitive model for military historians. And in his scrupulous reassessment of three battles representative of three different time periods, he manages to convey what the experience of combat meant for the participants, whether they were facing the arrow cloud at the battle of Agincourt, the musket balls at Waterloo, or the steel rain of the Somme."The best military historian of our generation." -Tom Clancy

The Face of Faith

by Gary H. Cote

Faith is at the center of the Church and its very foundation; all that the Holy Spirit will do in one's life is associated with faith. Therefore, it has always been part of the Christian vocabulary and is a central focus in regards to doctrine. Even the New Testament writers had to address it in the Church as devils sought to taint the faith revealed in and through holy men of God. In particular, James describes faith and declared that faith must be reflected in one's good works, that is, faith can be seen in one's life. James explained that faith is not just an internal recognition and agreement with the facts presented; but said that real faith that resides within the core of one's soul will result in works outwardly. Faith that abided, also acted. Faith that was set inwardly would surely result outwardly. James said, "I will show you my faith by my works (Jam. 2:18). Faith, then, can actually be seen operating in someone's life. Faith is not a whimsical power, but a concrete presence. Faith is established by Christ and is founded in Christ, for He is the Author and Finisher of faith (Heb. 12:2). Faith is not known or shown by what we receive, or through a mere statement. Faith hopes in God knowing that every event or experience is in His hands. The believer knows that all the events foretold in Scripture happened just as the Lord revealed, stated, wrote and recorded. The believer reads the biblical event knowing full well it took place as recorded. The person of faith understands the surety of God's word, and knows that every future event noted in the Bible will also unfold just as sure as every past event took place and happened as He revealed. Faith sees the Scriptural future to come as a history that is waiting for its time to unfold; it will take place as though it already happened. Faith knows and hopes in the surety of God's word, trusting fully in the past events as well as the future to come. His promises are worth more than anything else seen in this world. All that God has said will surely be, and will truly come to pass. This confidence is the believer's sure footing. In and through this confidence, the believer not only possesses all that is of Christ, but also becomes possessed by His Holy Spirit. Life is lived out with this knowledge at the core of their being, guiding every thought, word and action, that is, you belong to Christ. As you read this book and proceed through each aspect of faith, simply ponder on your own life of faith and apply this book's message to your life. To be people of faith, we must understand faith, and faith can be seen; it is the very evidence of those things that are not seen working in you. Faith has a face! You can know it when you see it. "The Face of Faith" was written for believers to know and understand faith; to recognize faith in their lives and in others. No one should be ignorant regarding the faith, rather, let every believer find the faith that pleases God and gains the rewards of God.

The Face of Imperialism

by Michael Parenti

He documents how it promotes unjust policies across the globe including expropriation of natural resources, privatisation, debt burdens and suppression of democratic movements. He then demonstrates how this feeds into deteriorating living standards in the US itself, leading to increased poverty, decaying infrastructure and impending ecological disaster. *BR**BR*The Face of Imperialism redefines empire and imperialism and connects the crisis in the US with its military escapades across the world.

The Face of the Deep

by Jacob Twersky

Though it was published in 1953, this book is grimly relevant today. The author, who was blind himself, writes about blindness from the inside. The theme of the novel is prejudice with all its overwhelming repercussions. Twersky's blind characters all suffer its devastating effects, and it shapes every aspect of their lives. The self-hatred spawned by this prejudice spurs them to deny and denigrate one another. This is not a pretty story, though it has soaring moments, and some of the characters manage to rise above their circumstances with integrity and compassion intact.
