This book is a personal account of the author's ten years of prison ministry: preaching, teaching, and simply visiting the men at San Quentin State Prison. The author reflects on a penal system he sees as corrupt and accountable to no one. As a result, he says, punishment (not rehabilitation) permeates the correctional system.

Description:
"Dr. Twelftree' work on Jesus as exorcist is already well known among scholars. Here, he broadens out his work to a full consideration of Jesus as miracle worker. Especially interesting is his focus on each of the Gospels in turn, before he moves back a step to consider the historical Jesus. Dr. Twelftree's work is another sign that the whole question of Jesus as miracle worker can no longer be swept under the academic carpet. The combination of exegetical, historical, and theological perspectives in this single volume makes Jesus the Miracle Worker an especially remarkable work." --John P. Meier, University of Notre Dame
The author is Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Regent University, Virginia Beach, Virginia. He is the author of numerous books, including Christ Triumphant and Jesus the Exorcist.

Description:
Originally written anonymously in Ancona, Italy, in the early 14th century, this book is a collection of stories about St. Francis and his band of followers. The Latin original is lost; much of the material is attributed to a Brother Ugolino. Many other, unknown friars were no doubt responsible for the content of this book. Essentially, The Little Flowers of St. Francis of Assisi is a written compilation of an oral tradition. St. Francis had died in 1226, so these stories were passed on through several generations. Reading this book will give you insight into the popular piety of the 13th and 14th centuries, as well as the origins of the Franciscan orders.

Description:
Having met with resistance in his attempts to reform the clergy in his native Xanten, Germany, Norbert (c. 1080-1134) founded a religious community in France. His establishment was the first house of what came to be a successful religious order, the Canons Regular of Pre'montre' (also known as the Premonstratensians or the Norbertines). Norbert was appointed archbishop of Magdeburg in 1126. Although he left almost no writings, his followers produced many essays, as they attempted to reform the clergy as they thought best. This book provides English translations of the twelfth-century disciples of Norbert. First, there is a preface by Andrew Ciferni, a Norbertine of Daylesford Abbey in Paoli, Pennsylvania. He speaks of the value of making such primary sources available, for the ongoing aggiornamento of his order.A 28-page introduction then provides the historical context for Norbert's work, explaining, for example, that his two important biographies are more complementary than contradictory.… Read More

Description:
Lawrence of Arabia produced his own abridgement of his life story, Seven Pillars. This is it. The text dates from 1919, when the fate of the Arabic-speaking parts of the Turkish Empire was undecided. From Egypt to Iraq, the Arabs were dominant, within the Turkish realm.Lawrence wrote well, with panache. His writings helped create the legend of his valor that endured throughout the century.As a fighter for the British Empire, his mission was to defeat the Turks and, in the end, to break up their dominion. As a result, we have today the divisions found in Palestine and Iraq, the legacy of British imperialism.Revolt in the Desert gives the reader a good sense of how Lawrence fomented rebellion, in his own words. Concrete and vivid narrative is matched by strong prose and description. This is a first-person adventure story, based on fact. In the end, the effect was long term. Lawrence promoted Arab self-awareness, militarism, and revolution, a trend that continues to the present.This is a collector's… Read More
