Trapped in a war-torn kingdom with no way home, Summer and Jonah are pulled into a strange quest to find the long-lost king, who alone has the power to restore peace to Presadia. Meeting strange and wonderful people along the way, including the dwarf high lord, the elf queen and a fire-breathing dragon, they learn important lessons about pride, greed, and the power of words as they embark on an epic journey to save the realm. The children and their new friends must be brave as they fly across the broken kingdom and climb a misty mountain. Can they fulfil their quest to find the king and restore peace to Presadia? And will Summer and Jonah ever make it back to their own world?
Margaret Starbird’s theological beliefs were profoundly shaken when she read Holy Blood, Holy Grail, a book that dared to suggest that Jesus Christ was married to Mary Magdalen and that their descendants carried on his holy bloodline in Western Europe. Shocked by such heresy, this Roman Catholic scholar set out to refute it, but instead found new and compelling evidence for the existence of the bride of Jesus--the same enigmatic woman who anointed him with precious unguent from her “alabaster jar.” In this provocative book, Starbird draws her conclusions from an extensive study of history, heraldry, symbolism, medieval art, mythology, psychology, and the Bible itself. The Woman with the Alabaster Jar is a quest for the forgotten feminine--in the hope that its return will help restore a healthy balance to planet Earth.

Recounts the life story of the author of the Gospel of Luke--from his life as a slave to his university studies as a medical student at Tarsus, from his acquaintance with Saul (Paul) of Tarsus to his ultimate discipleship and decision to write the story of Christ.

Millions of readers made the Left Behind series bestsellers. Now the third in the authors' bestselling Jesus Chronicles is available in trade paperback. This biblically inspired novel, third in the bestselling Jesus Chronicles, tells the story of Luke-the Gospel writer whose belief was built on the power of faith alone. Luke, who hadn't met Jesus, is skeptical of His miracles, until events in his own life irreversibly change him. Pledging himself to Christ, he begins a Gospel based on the conversion stories of believers and interviews with those who knew Him best-the disciples who spent three years with Jesus and, most important, His mother, Mary. The result would be a Scripture rich in the miraculous stories of the Lord's divinity, intended to appeal to women, nonbelievers, and the disenfranchised-and that would speak to the heart of Christians all over the world. From the Trade Paperback edition.
