This carefully crafted ebook: “DAVID BLAIZE TRILOGY – Complete Collection: David Blaize, David Blaize and the Blue Door & David Blaize of King’s (Illustrated)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. David Blaize Trilogy is a series of novels by English author Edward Frederic Benson about the life of a young boy from his early childhood to college years. The first novel in the series is named David Blaize. Set in England before the First World War, the novel describes David's years at prep school and public school, his studies, sports and friendships, and finally, his brush with death when he stops a runaway horse. A second novel, David Blaize and the Blue Door, set in David's early childhood, was published in 1918. In contrast to the first book, it is a children's fantasy influenced by the work of Lewis Carroll, in the style of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, set in a dream landscape permeated with nonsense. David Blaize of King's is Benson's 1924 sequel to David Blaize. It follows David's university career at King's College, Cambridge. Edward Frederic Benson (1867–1940) was an English novelist, biographer, memoirist, archaeologist and short story writer, known professionally as E.F. Benson. His novels feature humorous incidents in the lives of (mainly) upper-middle-class British people in the 1920s and 1930s, vying for social prestige and one-upmanship in an atmosphere of extreme cultural snobbery.

“But David tarried behind”. The scribe has chosen a subordinating conjunction (but) to conceal a negative abstraction worthy of investigation. The verb tarried is passive in its expression, and it too is hiding a secret. The scribe is trying to lead us to believe that David was tired and needed a rest; however, investigations persuade us to believe that something else was on his mind...Could it be, a few days before, David received a text message from Bathsheba to induce his probing spirit that kept him home and awake? after all, they were neighbors and David was a cat’s meow...Could it be that their attraction factors were aroused and one or the other made a gesture of willingness?...Could it be also that she had seen him up there before and lust was conceived in her heart...and she thought this a tranquil opportunity to gratify her lust?...and, if it came to light, he could sweep it under his political rug...David, turning to politics to cover his tracks was the mistake of his life, and many in religious leadership are following the same path.
David Zaid survived the extermination of the Jews in Poland ordered by cruel German dictator Adolph Hitler. He went on to become a hero in the Israeli army. His voice is now stilled, but with this book he continues to speak out against the holocaust-deniers who insist that the atrocities, the death camps, the routine executions of Jews, never really happened. Zaid lived through it, lost his entire family to an uncaring German firing squad, and knows the truth. And if he ever questioned his own courage while hiding from the murderous Nazis and the equally murderous Polish farmers in a Polish forest, the questions were answered in the Israeli wars where he fought in hand to hand combat for his new homeland. He survived once again and saw his final dream come true when he, his wife and two sons, became citizens in the United States, his final and most beloved homeland.

Siegfried, and Helen Weston Jacques-Louis David (1748–1825), the most celebrated painter of his era, was appointed court painter to Napoleon in 1804 and exiled to Brussels in 1816. This important book––based on the proceedings of an international symposium––explores David’s grand projects of the Empire period and the often mysterious works produced in his last years as a political exile. David after David features twenty-one essays by leading art historians that discuss these later works––which include innovative portraits as well as paintings and drawings that address the opposing themes of the antique and modern––in the aesthetic, political, and social contexts of their production and reception. The book also draws upon recently discovered letters the artist wrote in exile and provides fascinating new perspectives into his life and art.
“Hatred is the laziest form of cowardice.”™ Born in 1921 Germany, Eduard Meyer finds that, toward the end of his life's long journey he must, himself, deliver a gift, containing remnants of his arduous life’s experiences, that he had promised to his American, Texas-born nephew. That fulfillment of his promise, in 1995, frames the saga of Herr Meyer’s life. Within this exposition, he details his quest: the early discovery and development of his musical, keyboard prodigy, his early childhood bereavement, his harrowing experiences and traumatically maximal personal losses during the Hitler-time. Ultimately, after struggling through stress and depression, he must impart to that nephew the survivor's wisdom and knowledge that had arisen through his travails, that had carried him through all his trials. This American nephew must face his own hate-riven era, the US-Reagan AIDS-hysteria of the 1980’s. Only too late is Herr Meyer able to deliver the promised gift, the packet. A story of personal triumph, of family cohesion and understanding, of an abiding faith in indestructible love and devotion, this saga does to hatred—to Anti-Semitism and homophobia, in particular—what Uncle Tom’s Cabin did to slavery: it makes hatred intensely, inescapably personal. A first-person narrative, readers will within it understand viscerally, unforgettably, its characters’ forceful assertion in fighting Anti-Semitism and homophobia, that Hatred is the laziest form of cowardice.™ Note: This text contains embedded QR codes that, when scanned using one of the many, freely available cell-phone barcode-reader apps, will take the reader to pages within the book’s website, pages that present links to third-party locations (for free [ad-based], or subscription streaming of playlists, or for direct purchase) of the music referenced within (or suggestive of) the particular section of the text in which each code appears.

TERROR — inflicted by one’s own society — — dealt by one’s own neighbors — How does one person, simply trying to be “a good man,” conquer a rising maelstrom of mindless abuse, of hatred? David, My David is the saga of the victory over terror of Eduard Gottlieb Meyer. A musical prodigy born to a traditional Hessian, German farm-family in 1921, Herr Meyer tells of a life extending from his early, halcyon years through the inter-war period, the ravages of the Hitler Time and World War II, and beyond, into post-war, neglectful Europe and the increasingly bipolar, 20th-century America faced by his expansive, Texas family. On an odyssey marked by joy and sadness, despair and redemption, he survives through the personal strength he learns from his family and friends, from their faith in and dedication to others, as he asserts by his actions, even in darkest condition, that Hatred is the laziest form of cowardice.™ Note: This text contains embedded QR codes that, when scanned using one of the many, freely available cell-phone barcode-reader apps, will take the reader to pages within the book's website, pages that present links to third-party locations (for free [ad-based], or subscription streaming of playlists, or for direct purchase) of the music referenced within (or suggestive of) the particular section of the text in which each QR code appears.
David, unlike any Bible character before him, had the charisma to inspire a great nation. Yet in other ways he was a most ordinary man-often gripped by destructive passion, rocked by personal tragedy, and motivated by political gain. Yet, he is the one character the Bible describes as a "man after God's own heart." In this first volume of the "Great Lives" series Charles Swindoll shows how David proved his love for God many times over in an extraordinary life that left an enduring legacy of faith.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the "Prince of Preachers," composed and polished "The Treasury of David "over the span of nearly half his ministry. This incomparable commentary and omnibus on the Psalms has been prized by Christians ever since. Spurgeon's own commentary on every verse of the Psalms is extremely insightful, and by itself it would have been rich enough for posterity. But there's much more in "The Treasury of David." You'll find a wealth of illuminating extracts and quotes from hundreds of commentators--contemporaries of Spurgeon as well as the great Puritan expositors of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Preachers and teachers will appreciate the homiletical hints on almost every verse, concise sermon outlines, and provocative seed thoughts. Useful bibliographies and an index of authors offer more practical help. Whether you're teaching on the Psalms, studying them for personal devotions, or simply intrigued by the writings of Spurgeon, you'll enjoy this splendid classic.
This synchronic study of the books of Samuel examines the multifaceted character of David. His is a complex tale, seemingly designed to explore the human dimension of a traditional motif: divine election and rejection. Through speeches and actions, David is revealed as a man who never quite understands his fate. Why has Saul been rejected and why is David not rejected? If Saul sinned, David sinned boldly. The man, David, through poetic soliloquies (2 Sam. 1.19-27; 22.2-51; 23.1b-7), explores this question.
New content to the book includes ten brand-new pages of specific questions from aspiring fans that read the first edition, covering a range of current and updated topics.
Joseph Ben-David died twenty-five years ago, in January 1986. An eminent sociologist of science, and a co-founder of this sub-discipline, he was only sixty-five years old. Few social scientists are remembered after they die and can no longer parlay their influence into the goods of this world for colleagues and acquaintances. This was not Ben-David's fate. His work continues to be taught and referred to by scholars spread far and wide (in terms of both countries and disciplines). His students never forgot him, his books were republished, and his essays appeared in new collections. Ben-David's legacy includes ideas and ideals. Its central tenet is the autonomy of science, its right--and duty--to be value-free. Scholarship oriented to any goal other than the accumulation of objective knowledge about empirical reality, for him, was science no longer and did not have its authority. In this light, the life of scholarship was one of moral dedication, with nothing less than the fate of liberal democratic society depending on it. And for science to thrive, the university, its home, had to be the embodiment of the cardinal virtue of this society: the virtue of civility. In the spirit of Ben-David, believing that scholarly debate advances common good, and rational discourse wins whichever way arguments in it are settled, this festschrift debates such core issues as the nature of science, its changing definition and position in Western society, the forms of organization optimal for scientific creativity, and the ability of the research university to foster scientific growth, while also performing its educational role.
The first-ever insider account, timed to the 75th anniversary of Camp David Never before have the gates of Camp David been opened to the public. Intensely private and completely secluded, the president's personal campground is situated deep in the woods, up miles of unmarked roads that are practically invisible to the untrained eye. Now, for the first time, we are allowed to travel along the mountain route and directly into the fascinating and intimate complex of rustic residential cabins, wildlife trails, and athletic courses that make up the presidential family room. For seventy-five years, Camp David has served as the president's private retreat. A home away from the hustle and bustle of Washington, this historic site is the ideal place for the First Family to relax, unwind, and, perhaps most important, escape from the incessant gaze of the media and the public. It has hosted decades of family gatherings for thirteen presidents, from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Barack Obama, including holiday celebrations, reunions, and even a wedding. But more than just a weekend getaway, Camp David has also been the site of private meetings and high-level summits with foreign leaders to foster diplomacy. Former Camp David commander Rear Admiral Michael Giorgione, CEC, USN (Ret.), takes us deep into this enigmatic and revered sanctuary. Combining fascinating first-person anecdotes of the presidents and their families with storied history and interviews with commanders both past and present, he reveals the intimate connection felt by the First Families with this historic retreat.
