Escape with the remarkable third novel of the acclaimed Covenant series from #1 New York Times bestselling Jennifer L. Armentrout. Also includes the bonus novella Elixir. Enter the world of Covenant... Alexandria's eighteenth birthday - and her Awakening - is approaching. If she even makes it. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her and, if that isn't freaky enough, Alex is guarding a dark secret, too. If anyone finds out what she did, she's a goner - and so is Aiden. Alex still has feelings for Aiden, even though he's a pure-blood...and therefore forbidden. Meanwhile, she's been 'training' with her fellow Apollyon Seth - though really that's just Seth's code word for some up-close-and-personal time. After every session Alex ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to her Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome. But as Alex's birthday draws near, her entire world is shattered by a startling revelation. Once the gods have revealed themselves and unleashed their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed - and destroyed. Those left standing will find out if love is truly greater than fate.

When four Derby College students are reported missing, few in Derby CID, least of all DI Damen Brook, pay much attention. But then a film on the internet is discovered purporting to show the students committing mass suicide. If it's real, why did they kill themselves when they had such bright futures ahead of them? If the suicides are faked, why the set up and where are the students? And if they're dead and have been murdered, who on earth could have planned such a bizarre and tragic end to their promising lives? Combining intricate forensics with meticulous detection and the warped psychology of a psychopath, DEITY is a serial killer thriller of the highest order to rival the very best of Mark Billingham, Peter James and Peter Robinson.
For a variety of reasons, recent literature that focuses on the rationality of belief in God and the viability of the Christian worldview fails to stimulate critical thinking in the general population of believers. Nietzsche Was Probably Right succeeds where many of these other works miss the mark. It educates rather than coerces; it focuses on issues critically relevant to the vast majority of Christians; most importantly, it does not "preach to the choir," but instead offers a balanced, objective, comprehensive overview of the issues. Its tone and inclusive, unbiased approach welcomes nonbelievers and believers into this important conversation, offering a perspective that will satisfy anyone seeking a critical understanding of the Christian faith and its deity.
`Religion and politics are necessarily related', declared Ronald Reagan, while addressing an ecumenical prayer breakfast of 17,000 people in Dallas. But how are they connected? Many popular images of God - King, Lord, and Judge - are essentially political, while concepts of might, majesty, dominion, and power are used of both God and the state. This ambitious and original work explores the relations between these images and their political context through the analogy between divine and civil government, and considers what images of God may legitimately be employed by Christians in the twentieth century. David Nicholls suggests that religious conceptions have often affected political thinking - theological rhetoric, child of political experience, may also be mother of political change. Drawing upon politics, theology, history, sociology, anthropology, and literary criticism, this important new book will be essential reading for all concerned with the relation between Christianity and politics.

From science fiction legend Alan Dean Foster comes a thrilling Pip and Flinx adventure, wherein a certain red-haired, green-eyed young man blessed (or cursed) with strange powers finds himself and his mini-dragon sidekick on a top-secret mission concerning deep space, alien worlds . . . and a primordial horror intent on devouring all of it. In the outer depths of the universe lies the Great Emptiness, where something dreadful lurks, hidden behind a great gravitational lens of dark matter. Something horrific that howls and writhes and rages across three hundred million light-years of space–and is now heading straight for the Commonwealth and moving faster all the time. One slim chance exists to avert catastrophe, and only Flinx can take it. Roaming the galaxy is a conscious planet-size weapons system, the legacy of a long-extinct race. As Flinx is the only one who has ever experienced mental contact with the machine, it is his job to find the powerful alien artifact and coax it into joining the battle against the behemoth from beyond. So Pip and Flinx valiantly sail into the unknown aboard their little spaceship, which is immediately forced down for emergency repairs on planet Arrawd, home to less advanced sentients and therefore off-limits to space travelers. But what with Arrawd being very beautiful, and Flinx being Flinx, this particular rule doesn’t stand a chance. Now, Flinx is no stranger to murderous attacks and stalking assassins–evading them occupies most of his waking hours–but to be besieged by hordes bent on worshipping him as a god? Worse still, escaping this fate is going to be as impossible as fulfilling his dire mission. What’s a deity to do? From the Hardcover edition.
Complementary to Theism and Cosmology, this book begins with a discussion of philosophical and theological idea-ism, and our common beliefs concerning nature, man, and God. It is principally concerned with idealism - the place of ideals in reality rather than with the place of ideas. It discusses personality, justice, value, morals and theism versus pantheism then ends with a discussion of the general relations between a cosmological theism and a theism whose primary interest is the conservation and the incarnation of what is good and fine.
Christ’s Deity: The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; Truth, Myth and Challenges discusses Christ’s Deity, an issue of life and death, a challenging issue of ages that challenges the minds of men and women, the mind of anyone who is mature, the issue of truth and power; and that has caused divisions among believers and among non-believers. What is the Truth? Who holds the Truth? Who knows the Truth? Where can we find the Truth? Christ says, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days” [John 2:19 ]; Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away [Matthew 24:35]; I and the Father are one [John 10:30]. Furthermore, the Lord Jesus Christ states: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” [John 14:6-7]. God exists, He is Our Creator. God loves us. God created us in His image [Genesis 1:27]. God Created Adam and Eve, God gave Adam His commands, but Adam failed to keep God’s commands. Adam and Eve disobeyed God, they sinned and God punished them [Genesis 3:1-]. Adam caused the Fall of Man, but God created away out to save Man. God did, God did... But who is this God? The LORD Jesus Christ came to earth to save the world. He was called Immanuel, God with us [Matthew 1:23]. His birth was predicted; and He was Called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace [Isaiah 9:6]. Christ’s Deity examines passages in Scriptures that surround Christ’s Deity to help the audience determine the truth about Christ’s Deity. IS the Lord, Jesus Christ God, Our Creator?
