Imagine having it all and leaving it all behind -- to answer a higher calling... REVELATIONS His rise to fame was one of rap's great success stories. He had millions of fans and the prospect of multi-millions of dollars. But just as Ma#&36;e -- as he was then called -- was poised to sign a deal with Sean "Puffy" Combs' famed Bad Boy Records, he walked away. Revelations is Mason Betha's powerful memoir about a miraculous transformation: his own -- from the material-minded Ma$e to the pastor he has become. Here, Betha reveals the rhyme and reason behind his choice to trade in his sensational music career for a richer, more spiritual one. As founder of a nondenominational movement called S.A.N.E. (Saving a Nation Endangered) Ministries, Betha has traveled throughout the country to share his messages of peace and prosperity with today's youth. Revelations is his testament to the enduring power of faith, and to the limitless possibilities in a life transformed by God's guiding hand.

That despite all the betrayals, heartbreaks and hardships in life; we can only come out stronger wiser and more confident in ourselves. Over the years of my adolescence and young adulthood I've always written down my most treasured thoughts and emotions, hiding them from the world. But I've come to realize that if through one poem, one phrase I can help bring light to someone else's darkness, than it`s worth being venerable in the worlds eyes.
A startling exploration of the history of the most controversial book of the Bible, by the bestselling author of Beyond Belief. Through the bestselling books of Elaine Pagels, thousands of readers have come to know and treasure the suppressed biblical texts known as the Gnostic Gospels. As one of the world's foremost religion scholars, she has been a pioneer in interpreting these books and illuminating their place in the early history of Christianity. Her new book, however, tackles a text that is firmly, dramatically within the New Testament canon: The Book of Revelation, the surreal apocalyptic vision of the end of the world . . . or is it? In this startling and timely book, Pagels returns The Book of Revelation to its historical origin, written as its author John of Patmos took aim at the Roman Empire after what is now known as "the Jewish War," in 66 CE. Militant Jews in Jerusalem, fired with religious fervor, waged an all-out war against Rome's occupation of Judea and their defeat resulted in the desecration of Jerusalem and its Great Temple. Pagels persuasively interprets Revelation as a scathing attack on the decadence of Rome. Soon after, however, a new sect known as "Christians" seized on John's text as a weapon against heresy and infidels of all kinds-Jews, even Christians who dissented from their increasingly rigid doctrines and hierarchies. In a time when global religious violence surges, Revelations explores how often those in power throughout history have sought to force "God's enemies" to submit or be killed. It is sure to appeal to Pagels's committed readers and bring her a whole new audience who want to understand the roots of dissent, violence, and division in the world's religions, and to appreciate the lasting appeal of this extraordinary text.

But she can't exactly tell Gavin what she's feeling. Not when he's the one who helped her escape Elysium in the first place, and has the scars to prove it. Though the doctors say otherwise, Gavin believes that Evie just needs time. And if her memories don't come back, well, maybe she's better off not remembering her past.

People and images from her past appear in the most unlikely places, haunting her, provoking her...and making her seem not only strange but dangerous.
