by J. D. Biersdorfer

iPod is the dominant digital music player on the market, and for the first time, Apple gets to feel like Microsoft. iPod steadily evolved through five generations since then, and today the dynasty ranges from a screenless 512-megabyte version that can hold plenty of songs for your gym routine to a 60-gigabyte multimedia jukebox that can spin out an entire season of "Desperate Housewives", along with thousands of color photos and all that colorful music. An iPod is many things to many people, but it can be much more than most people realize. That's where iPod and iTunes: The Missing Manual comes in.

Once again, we've updated this guide to fully explain the ins and outs of iPod, including the nano, the shuffle, and all the latest features and uses, such as: The 5th generation Video iPod, which can hold 15,000 songs, 25,000 photos, and 150 hours of video. iTunes 6, where you can buy tunes, subscribe to Podcasts, tune into internet radio, download videos, build playlists, and more.

by Greg Surratt

Ir-rev-rend (ir REV rund) noun1. a pastor who is somewhat critical of what is generally accepted or respected2. a pastor who is trying to make sense of life, love, the church and other confusing things from a slightly satirical point of view; an irreverent sense of humor.3. a "normal" guy pursuing GodWhatever you may think about the "typical" pastor, throw it out. Do they make bad decisions? Yes. Commit sin and experience severed relationships? Yes and yes. Pastor Greg Surratt is not perfect, and he unashamedly tells the stories that have strengthened his faith. He writes that the choice to follow Christ is never clean, is often scary, is usually clothed in mystery, and is always an adventure.For some people, God appears in dark, dirty, lonely, or just plain odd places. Greg found God while huddled under a grand piano, hiding from overzealous friends and family trying to accost him during an altar call at a Pentecostal revival. So began a life of sharing stories of God's endlessly creative and often surprising work and seeing God's transforming power in unexpected ways. Despite years of vocational ministry, Greg never underestimates the power of divine/human encounters in some of teh least "churchy' places on earth.Humorous, insightful, and challenging, IR-REV-REND is a revealing and joyous look at real-life Christian living. As Greg himself affirms, if God can use his missteps and blunders, God can use anybody's.

Ira Fistell's Mark Twain: Three Encounters

by Ira Fistell

An analysis of Mark Twain through his most famous writings.


by Homa Katouzian

As the Western-Iranian impasse continues to dominate international affairs, politicians and the media confidently proclaim Iran the greatest threat to the Western World. But this villainous mask obscures a far more complex identity formed by a vibrant and tumultuous history.Revealing the true face of this troubled country, acclaimed expert Homa Katouzian delves deep into Iran's past, exploring how an ancient civilization at a cross-road of diverse dynasties and religions grew to become an ethnically, linguistically and culturally rich nation still bound by the Persian tradition. Major political events and key figures are brought to life as centuries of authoritarian and arbitrary rule, chaos and revolution are unraveled and analyzed, shedding new light on modern Iran and making this an indispensable resource for understanding the current situation in the Middle East.

Iran Awakening: One Woman's Journey to Reclaim Her Life and Country

by Azadeh Moaveni Shirin Ebadi

The moving, inspiring memoir of one of the great women of our times, Shirin Ebadi, winner of the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize and advocate for the oppressed, whose spirit has remained strong in the face of political persecution and despite the challenges she has faced raising a family while pursuing her work. Best known in this country as the lawyer working tirelessly on behalf of Canadian photojournalist, Zara Kazemi -- raped, tortured and murdered in Iran -- Dr. Ebadi offers us a vivid picture of the struggles of one woman against the system. The book movingly chronicles her childhood in a loving, untraditional family, her upbringing before the Revolution in 1979 that toppled the Shah, her marriage and her religious faith, as well as her life as a mother and lawyer battling an oppressive regime in the courts while bringing up her girls at home. Outspoken, controversial, Shirin Ebadi is one of the most fascinating women today. She rose quickly to become the first female judge in the country; but when the religious authorities declared women unfit to serve as judges she was demoted to clerk in the courtroom she had once presided over. She eventually fought her way back as a human rights lawyer, defending women and children in politically charged cases that most lawyers were afraid to represent. She has been arrested and been the target of assassination, but through it all has spoken out with quiet bravery on behalf of the victims of injustice and discrimination and become a powerful voice for change, almost universally embraced as a hero. Her memoir is a gripping story -- a must-read for anyone interested in Zara Kazemi's case, in the life of a remarkable woman, or in understanding the political and religious upheaval in our world.

Iran: The Coming Crisis

by Mark Hitchcock

The Past, Present, and Future-Exposed The events wracking the Middle East today are confusing to even the most avid news buff. Now all the answers to your questions are offered in just one resource. Divided into five main sections,Iran: The Coming Crisiscontains the most up-to-date, thorough information available and is complete with maps, charts, and timelines for visual assistance. Iran's past, present, and future are exposed-the country's quest for nuclear weapons and support of Palestinian terror groups, its ability to "play the oil card," and Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's apocalyptic beliefs that motivate his actions. You'll discover the truth about today's events, how they relate to Bible prophecy, and what the Bible clearly describes is yet to come. It's a crisis unlike any the world has ever faced. Are We Headed for a Nuclear Jihad? " Israel must be wiped off the map," Iran president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said it himself. He has denied the Holocaust, and his actions are motivated by a dangerous apocalyptic view of Islam. Meanwhile, Islamic extremists are in hot pursuit of nuclear weapons as they stand as gatekeepers to the Persian Gulf oil flow. Closer to home, President Bush has stated that the greatest threat to America is nuclear terrorism. In a prophecy written over 2,500 years ago, Ezekiel 38-39 foretells Iran 's future. Iran , Russia , and other Islamic nations will invade Israel in the end times. Today, the connection between Iran and Russia only grows. How close is this invasion? What will happen? Will America survive? Will the world? Mark Hitchcock , an expert in Bible prophecy, exposes Iran 's past, present, and future with striking clarity. Find maps, charts, and answers to your every question inside. "I highly recommend Mark as a faithful guide to understanding current events in light of God's wonderful plan of prophecy. " Tim LaHaye Pastor and bestselling author Story Behind the Book There seems to be no turning back from the looming crisis in the Middle East. The Islamic and political rulers of Iran are set in their ideology by principle. The West and Israel are headed for some sort of confrontation economically, socially, and likely militarily. Mark Hitchcock 's background as a lawyer, pastor, and expert in Bible prophecy suits him perfectly as a Christian authority on the subject. Timing is critical, and his new book will release as more and more everyday people-Christians and non-Christians alike-realize the gravity of world events and question how they relate to Bible prophecy.

The Iranian Hit

by Don Pendleton

Stop the assassination! The directive came from the White House, and the target was less than twenty miles away in an affluent Maryland suburb. For Mack Bolan it was a very strange assignment: to protect a high-level Iranian exile, General Eshan Nazarour, from imminent assassination. It became stranger still when the general's beautiful American wife was kidnapped. Immediately the intrigue, violence--and murder-- began to form a familiar pattern. Organized crime was getting involved with foreign subversion. The maze of treachery and terrorism could lead to only one conclusion --the deadly presence of the Executioner: Mack Bolan! Violence. 42nd novel in the "Executioner" series, 1982.
