Clement Vidal

In this fascinating journey to the edge of science, Vidal takes on big philosophical questions: Does our universe have a beginning and an end or is it cyclic? Are we alone in the universe? What is the role of intelligent life, if any, in cosmic evolution? Grounded in science and committed to philosophical rigor, this book presents an evolutionary worldview where the rise of intelligent life is not an accident, but may well be the key to unlocking the universe's deepest mysteries. Vidal shows how the fine-tuning controversy can be advanced with computer simulations. He also explores whether natural or artificial selection could hold on a cosmic scale. In perhaps his boldest hypothesis, he argues that signs of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations are already present in our astrophysical data. His conclusions invite us to see the meaning of life, evolution and intelligence from a novel cosmological framework that should stir debate for years to come.

The Beginning of the End continues the story of Reserve Commander Warwick Hursey during World War II, and is the third and final book of the series that began with Love and War and continued with Hursey in Conflict. This is a graphic and realistically told story of action at sea and romance ashore. On his return from America, Warwick is appointed to command the light cruiser HMS Delhi and is employed escorting convoys to Murmansk, where his ship plays a part in the sinking of the German Battleship Scharnhorst. After escorting a fleet of landing craft to England from Gibraltar, he is posted to Camp Widewing, the huge U.S. and Allied Camp near London, which was planning for the D-Day landings. He observes and reports on the disastrous Operation Tiger, when over 900 American servicemen lost their lives. Warwick eventually falls in love with Brigitte Ziegler, a Danish refugee. The book ends as the USS Augusta with General Bradley and Commodore Hursey onboard weighs her anchor for the D-day invasion of June 6, 1944.

Michael W. Pahl

Have you ever wondered if there might be more to Genesis than fodder for anti-evolutionism? Or have you ever thought, "Revelation has to be more than simply a roadmap for the future of the Middle East"? You're not alone. In The Beginning and the End Michael Pahl surveys the opening chapters of Genesis and the concluding chapters of Revelation, taking seriously both their historical and literary features as ancient texts and their theological purposes as inspired Scripture. The result is a reading of the first and last books of the Bible that sketches out, from beginning to end, a story of God, humanity, and all creation--a grand narrative in which we are placed in the middle, and which calls us to live in a particular way as our identity and our values are shaped in light of our origins and our destiny.

Nikolai Berdiaev

Written at the beginning of the world apocalypse which was World War II, The Beginning and the End is Nikolai Berdyaev's main book on eschatology. He describes his book as an "essay in the epistemological and metaphysical interpretation of the end of the world, of the end of history"; hence he calls it an "eschatological metaphysics." For Berdyaev the end of the world is a divine-human enterprise: man not only endures the end, but he also prepares the way for it. Man's creative activity is needed for the coming of the kingdom of God: God is in need of this activity and awaits it. Berdyaev tells us that the eschatological outlook is not limited to the prospect of the end of the world; it embraces every instant of life. This is how he puts it: "What one needs to do at every moment of one's life is to put an end to the old world and to begin a new world."

A conflict continues to rage between Christian believers, and those who look to science for answers regarding the origins of man. This conflict is unnecessary, for the Bible is truly inerrant, but in a way that could not be imagined, and there is proof to support what Scripture says about creation, as well as what science has revealed concerning our origins. The same method which can be used to prove truth regarding the beginning of man can also be used to interpret the prophecy of Daniel, and make manifest the secrets of God concerning the end of time. Gematria, the use of the numerical value of words in Hebrew and Greek, the languages of the Bible, provides the amazing evidence to confirm the truth regarding both the beginning and the end of man. The author, Tyrone W. Cobb, MD, has maintained a private practice as an orthopedic surgeon since 1980. He is a graduate of Oakland University (BA in biology), and Wayne State University School of Medicine. Married since 1970 to Beianca, they were blessed with two sons. The tragic loss of their youngest son in 2006 caused the author to seek understanding regarding the truth of Scripture. Despite being illiterate in the languages of the Bible, and having no background in Biblical studies, through guidance of the Spirit he has written four books in one year which demonstrate that the numerical value of Hebrew and Greek words reveals hidden truth in Scripture.

Months before Fort Sumter was attacked, even before the Confederacy was formed, fifty-six U. S. forts, arsenals and ships were seized by the first states to secede, and one-seventh of the U. S. Army was surrendered to the militia in Texas. The Beginning and the End tells the dramatic story of these events, largely ignored in Civil War histories, and describes the Confederacy's other war preparations. It relates how, without guidance from the floundering Buchanan administration, a decisive army lieutenant saved Fort Pickens at Pensacola in January, while a naval commodore was court-martialed for not resisting the seizure of the navy yard there, and how other junior officers protected the two forts at the Keys. The second part of the book explains why, following the final campaigns of March 1865, Southern surrenders continued for several months after Appomattox. When Lee, who had just become general-in-chief, declined to end the war by surrendering all Confederate forces, he left the remaining C. S. generals to struggle with a hopeless situation while Davis fled to Georgia. In absorbing detail, it relates the background of Johnston's surrender on April 26 in North Carolina, Taylor's in Alabama on May 4, Jones's in Florida on May 10-the same day that Davis was captured-and Kirby-Smith's, west of the Mississippi, on May 26. The book concludes with the surrender of Indian Territory tribes, the release of prisoners of war, and the firing of the last shot in Aleutian waters on June 28. This work is complimented with maps, illustrations and a combined full-name plus subject index. Dayton E. Pryor is a life-long student of American history who grew up in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, the farthest point of Confederate advance. He has a B. A. in history from Bethany College and a M. A. in economics from the University of Chicago. "This book tells the dramatic stories, often not detailed in history books..." Joan Griffis, Commercial News

John Jacobsen

This multi-book series is an epic saga that follows a diverse set of characters through the seven-year Tribulation into the Millennium. Pastors, prayer warriors, CIA agents, Illuminati leaders, the Anti-Christ and the False Prophet vie against each other and God in this compelling drama that presents a strong Biblical case for a pre-wrath rapture that occurs after the midpoint of the Tribulation. This first book covers the pre-Tribulation period that Jesus calls the "beginning of sorrows" up to the emergence of the Anti-Christ and False Prophet. As the world is flung into great travail, a small group of Christians leads the way in coping with increased persecution midst the virtual collapse of the social order. By properly interpreting prophetic Scriptures, they have prepared well-stocked hideaways from which to offer sustenance and salvation to a troubled world. Meanwhile, two pastors from different ends of the Christian spectrum collaborate to convert an Illuminati leader and Deputy Director of the CIA into a mole within the shadowy leadership of the demonically coordinated New World Order. Satan's strategies are exposed while God's end-time power begins to work through those who are called to be the light of truth within the gross darkness that covers the earth. Pastor John Jacobsen was a Director of Management Science at two Fortune 100 corporations, an executive in the software industry, and President of Meals-on-Wheels in Prescott, Arizona. He became a pastor in 2001 and was the founder of the Gospel of Grace Food & Clothing Bank and the Lion of Judah ministries. Pastor Jacobsen also served as the Prayer Coordinator for Yavapai County in Arizona for several years. Reared a Lutheran, John became a pastor in a Pentecostal church and now considers himself to be non-denominational.
