Prepare For Battle: Basic Training in Spiritual Warfare

by Neal Pirolo

"I hate war!" Neal declares in his opening paragraph. "But my hatred for the enemy of our souls is greater than my abhorrence of war!" Making reference to over 700 Scriptures that point to victory in battle, Neal focuses on the basics, yet with significant, new insights: Spiritual Armor, Spiritual Weapons, Our Attitude Toward War, Tactics of satan, Spiritual Authority, Principles of War, and Strategies for Battlefield Living. Each chapter is followed by PRACTICAL INSIGHTS written by Yvonne from her experiences. Reader comments: "Some people deny that we are at war, yet others have convoluted ideas about it. Neither is effective in battle. The Pirolos' understanding of spiritual warfare (based on Scripture) and their own experiences (also based on Scripture) provide insightful and useful help for any Christian's life." Aimee W. "This is a practical, concise manual on spiritual warfare. It is simple to read and understand, but very well thought out and very Scripturally-based. This book is not just for pastors and missionaries, but should be in the library of every Christian." Michelle V.

The Triumph of John and Betty Stam

by Mrs Howard Taylor

John Stam was daring, courageous, unafraid of danger. Betty, his wife, was kind, gracious, a sensitive poetess. Together they made a lasting contribution to missionary endeavor in China. Bandits, illness, the threatening Chinese Communist force, problems of child-raising on a primitive mission field--all these threatened to choke John and Betty's confidence in the Lord. But the Stams' faith grew stronger under pressure. Even when martyred by Chinese Reds, they displayed an unshakeable trust in God. The Triumph of John and Betty Stam offers an inspiring story of dedication and sacrifice-even martyrdom. This book will give spiritual strength to all who take time to read its contents.

De Tocqueville worried that although the revolutionary spirit was still alive and well, liberty was no longer its primary objective. Just as the first Republic had fallen to Napoleon and the second had succumbed to his nephew Napoleon III, he feared that all future revolutions might experience the same fate, forever imperiling the development of democracy in France. Translated and with an introduction by Gerald Bevan.

One was Jason Kincaid, the devastatingly handsome Baron Radford, who made her an offer of marriage for reasons she did not know but could only fear, since he clearly loved another far more fervently than he could love her. And the third was the honorable Captain Richard Davenport, who would never dream of stealing another man's intended bride, no matter how much he wanted her ... or how much she wanted him to....

Eyes at My Feet

by Jessie Hickford

From the Book Jacket: In my work as a veterinary surgeon I regularly examine and treat guide dogs and I always find something humbling in the cheerfulness of the blind people and their pride in the wonderful animals which serve as their eyes. But not until now have I had the opportunity to read how one of these partnerships developed. With no trace of self pity Jessie Hickford takes us with her through the early difficult days of her training with her dog Prudence; and surely no writer has more movingly described the flowering of companionship and love between animal and mistress as they gradually adjust to each other. I like to write about animals and I enjoy reading about them too, so this is a book for me and for all the thousands who share my tastes. 'It is not a sad book, it is a happy one because it is a story of ultimate triumph ; and I do not know which character captivated me most the brave woman who wrote it or the beautiful dog she has never seen.
