She exists as a slave in the fortress of a Roman invader, her only friend an ancient, blind Druidess, Derina. Her life is bleak and without hope. And then Derina tells her she must rescue the prisoner in the dungeon. Tynan lies naked, chained to a cold, stone slat, both body and mind tortured by the Sorcerer, evil ally of the Roman Lord. The Sorcerer's purpose? To discover if this one, at last, might be the Dark Chieftain, the fulfiller of prophecy. Even deeper in the dungeon, trapped by magical enchantment, are the faeries. They await their liberator, the one who has been prophesied. And the Dark Chieftain awaits a destiny of his own...mating with the territorial goddess...a union that will set the land, and many loves, right. First, however, he must gain his freedom and find her. And Bryna is on her way to the dungeon...

If the Bible teaches that the Lord is sovereign over all and that mankind is naturally hostile towards God, then it stands to reason that we would never choose the Lord apart from the Holy Spirit working within us to change our hearts. Proceeding from this logical starting point of God's sovereignty and man's depravity, it necessarily follows that God must save His people from their sins, those that are otherwise helpless and in a desperate state. No theological system like Reformed theology allows one to remain consistent when carrying out one's beliefs to the ultimate conclusions as the doctrines of God's sovereignty and grace do. Murrell examines common arguments against Calvinism and demonstrates how they are oftentimes the result of misunderstandings, faulty reasoning, or poor scriptural exegesis. God's sovereignty is not so much a barrier to Calvinism as it is a powerful support for it.

Living 'happily ever after' is uncommon after prolonged periods of childhood abuse. It's more like a near-fatal auto accident from which the victims retain permanent scars, but press on through life despite their lingering disabilities. In the case of Tony's family, a sadistic and malevolent mother was allowed to run unfettered thanks to a feckless father and an uninformed and impotent local system of child protective services. Abused children are more likely to suffer from attention-deficit disorders, behavioral problems, reduced cognitive development, language deficiencies, emotional instability, poor self-regulation, low self-esteem, and an inability to cope with new or stressful situations. All of these attributes are significant factors in school readiness. Prompt and effective responses to abuse can ameliorate or protect against many of these negative effects. If you suspect abuse, don't wait until you can 'prove' it. Make a report whenever your worries about the safety of a child turn into suspicions that the child is being mistreated. If the abuse is happening right now, report it right now! If you need help or have questions about child abuse, call the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-422-4453. Hotline counselors are available 365 days a year to help children and adults who are worried about children they suspect are being abused. You can call this number if you live in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, or the U.S. Virgin Islands. The call is both free and anonymous.

The continuing saga of the day in a life of a sinner struggling with christianity. With every realization of whom God and Jesus is and that they are one along with the Holy Ghost, comes life and struggle and doubt and fear. Seeing this as a failure in your christian walk would be inconsistent with the reality of life itself. Predestined to Bless is a revelation of the struggle and the issues we go through as christians, but the continuous reality and knowledge of who God is. It is God's word itself that propels us to continue moving forward when we would rather stand still. It is God's inner presence in our lives that comforts us when we believe that we have given up. The mistake we make as christians is to deny our frailites instead of embracing them along with God's loving kindness. It is not so much about seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, but knowing that the light is with you while you are in the tunnel. May you be blessed in your reading as I believe this book is predestined to do.

Treatise on Divine Predestination is one of the early writings of the author of the great philosophical work, Periphyseon (On the Division of Nature), Johannes Scottus (the Irishman), known as Eriugena (died c. 877 A.D.). It contributes to the age-old debate on the question of human destiny in the present world and in afterlife. /// Eriugena's treatise was commissioned by two senior prelates in the Frankish kingdom of Charles II, grandson of Charlemagne. The Irishman was a teacher of the Liberal Arts at the Court of Charles during the Carolingian Renaissance in the mid-ninth century. The monastic and ecclesiastical authorities of the kingdom had become troubled by the potentially harmful effects of the preaching of the monk Gottschalk on the doctrine of Predestination. /// Claiming to base his conclusions on some works of St. Augustine, Gottschalk was making a case for a dual or twin (gemina) predestination, discounting the operation of Free Will. When called upon to provide a refutation, Eriugena derived his counter-arguments from an interpretation of Augustinian writings based on Logic and Dialectic. The originality of his exposition, which stressed the impropriety of regarding God within a context of Time, and which formulated a benign view of eternal damnation, caused immediate confusion for his sponsors, followed by disappointment and rejection, as well as a measure of condemnation from other senior churchmen. /// The debate produced some forceful writings in the decade between 850 and 860 but Eriugena's treatise appears to have received no further consideration in his lifetime. The work survives in a single manuscript of which editions were published in 1650 and 1853. It has been most recently edited in 1978. The present translation was made from that edition. Modern scholars are able to discern in this early work strong intimations of Eriugena's later major writings.

How can an all-loving God choose some people for eternal salvation while permitting others to fall away? Doesn't God offer the same amount of saving grace to everyone? Isn't predestination a Protestant doctrine? In The Mystery of Predestination , author and apologist John Salza, seeks to answer these questions, and others, about that most ineffable and confounding of Christian beliefs: that God chooses to infallibly direct certain people to salvation but not others. Drawing deeply upon Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas, Salza says that a proper Catholic understanding of the doctrine of predestination is interconnected with two other central mysteries: the ability of mankind to choose freely to accept or reject God's saving grace, and the inability of mankind to accept God's grace without first being moved by His grace from within. By holding these truths always before us we can see how God may predestine His elect to heaven but never desire that anyone go to hell. We can also achieve a new clarity and depth of insight into a profound Christian truth: God is the primary mover in salvation. It is He who chooses, seeks, and saves us. Meticulously researched and written in a scholarly yet accessible style, The Mystery of Predestination is perfect for the serious Catholic who is confused by Bible verses or Magisterial statements in favor of predestination (and never hears about it in Sunday sermons), or who wants to defend Catholic truth against Calvinist error, and is seeking clear, traditional, and Thomistic answers. Or, indeed, for any thoughtful Christian who wants to come to terms with what the Bible teaches about the fundamental truths of our salvation.

This work is a serious study on the doctrine of predestination as it refers to man’s salvation or reprobation by God’s eternal decree. Perkins teaches from the Bible that the doctrine of predestination and God’s grace is to be founded on the written Word of God, and not on the judgments of men. He also emphatically shows, by a multitude of examples, that this doctrine also agrees with the grounds of common logic and reason as it should. His purpose is to help, almost exhaustively, those who are “stuck on the difficulties of the doctrine of predestination.” This is a classic puritan work, glorifying the sovereign Creator of heaven and earth, and worthy of deep consideration by every professing Christian. This is not a scan or a facsimile, but a newly typeset work updated and made easily readable, with an active table of contents.
