• Description : Is sex killing you? What is the myth surrounding pre-marital sex? Is GOD in the matchmaking business? These questions are answered and other issues addressed in, The "S" Word: A Commentary on GOD and Sex - Making the Case for Abstinence. Author Michele F. Richardson explores the spiritual implications and natural consequences of human promiscuity, including epidemics of sexual abuse and molestation of children, pornography, divorce, and more. In "S" Word, Michele purports that promiscuity, in general, could subject America and other countries around the world to breaches severe enough to put the national security of every citizen at risk. Whether you ultimately agree with her suppositions or not, Ms. Richardson has done a masterful job of putting together a provocative, even controversial, book that anyone who considers themselves well-read will want to get their hands on.

• Description : From the gruff, sword-toting swashbucklers of the Middle Ages to modern adventure epics like The Princess Bride, the aura surrounding the sword is one that is both romantic and pragmatic. Thoughts of this weapon bring to mind images of the Knights of the Round Table, Zorro, the Three Musketeers--the things daydreams are made of. Yet, until the publication of this encyclopedia there has never been a comprehensive volume on the subject of the sword. For the first time, readers can locate information on the history of sword types and styles throughout the world, techniques of combat sword use, techniques of fencing and major fencing masters, and so on.

• Description : The Book of Judith tells the story of a fictitious Jewish woman beheading the general of the most powerful imaginable army to free her people. The parabolic story was set as an example of how God will help the righteous. Judith's heroic action not only became a validating charter myth of Judaism itself but has also been appropriated by many Christian and secular groupings, and has been an inspiration for numerous literary texts and works of art. It continues to exercise its power over artists, authors and academics and is becoming a major field of research in its own right. The Sword of Judith is the first multidisciplinary collection of essays to discuss representations of Judith throughout the centuries. It transforms our understanding across a wide range of disciplines. The collection includes new archival source studies, the translation of unpublished manuscripts, the translation of texts unavailable in English, and Judith images and music.

• Description : As the so-termed founding of Rome took place during the early Iron Age of Southern Europe, it is probable that the citizens, like their predecessors the Etruscans, originally made their blades of copper and bronze, the leaf-shape being borrowed from the Greeks, as we see it retained by the gladiators. The material would last into the Age of Steel, but even in her early years Rome must have preferred the harder metal. Pliny expressly tells us that Porsena, after his short-lived conquest, prohibited the future masters of the world from using iron except in agriculture... -from Chapter XII: "The Sword in Ancient Rome; The Legion and the Gladiator" Notorious for his global exploits-not to mention his unexpurgated translations of The Arabian Nights and the Kama Sutra-British adventurer and author CAPTAIN SIR RICHARD FRANCIS BURTON (1821-1890) was also a soldier and an aficionado of fencing, which is surely how he came about his interest in the sword. "The history of the sword is the history of humanity," Burton declares in his introduction to this classic 1884 survey of the weapon, and then goes on to explore that noble history through: [ the origin of weapons [ the ages of wood, bone, and horn [ copper weapons [ bronze and brass axes and swords [ the sword in ancient Egypt [ the sword in Babylonia, Persia, and ancient India [ the sword in ancient Greece [ the sword in ancient Rome [ and much more Profusely illustrated with beautifully detailed line drawings, this is an essential reference for anyone interested in the history of weaponry.

• Description : Let’s face it, there are certain concepts in the bible that we dislike and want to ignore. One of the most misunderstood and misused commands in the bible is the “S” word. I’m talking about the word, submitting. For most women the thought of submitting to their husbands is terrifying. Sadly, most men don’t realize that they too are instructed scripturally to submit to their wives as well. In this book we will explore God’s bigger picture and why He instructs us to do something as imperative as submitting to our spouse. [...] by Publisher : 'Xlibris Corporation'
