RESPLENDENT is a collection of stories that encompasses mankind's epic fight for survival against the Xeelee, a narrative of how man will change and evolve over our epic journey out into the universe. These tales will encompass the rise of sub-molecular empires in the first nanoseconds after the Big Bang to mankind's final transformation. Full of cutting-edge science, descriptions of time and space on a mind-boggling scale and memorable, all-too-human characters. It is both the capstone to one of the most significant series in the history of SF and a remarkable achievement in its own right. This is a mature and uniquely talented writer at the height of his powers.

In the past, girls from rural southeastern Europe spent their childhoods weaving, sewing, and embroidering festive dress so that upon reaching puberty they could join the Sunday afternoon village dances garbed in resplendent attire. These extremely colorful and intensely worked garments were often adorned with embroidery, lace, metallic threads, coins, sequins, beads, and, perhaps most importantly, fringe, a symbolic marker of fertility. Over time new forms of dress were added so that by 1900, a southeastern European village woman's apparel consisted of millennia of layered history. Even today this dress continues to be worn on festive occasions and by older people in rural areas. Lavishly illustrated, Resplendent Dress from Southeastern Europe features fifty stunning nineteenth- through twentieth-century ensembles from Macedonia, Croatia, Albania, Montenegro, and neighboring countries, plus one hundred individual items including aprons, vests, jackets, and robes. Elizabeth Wayland Barber traces this twenty-thousand-year tradition of dress in fascinating detail.

Who was the first person recorded as praising God? Who was the first to give Him a name? Who was the first to announce the coming of God's Messiah? Who was Paul's mentor and coach? Who financed Jesus' ministry? And who anointed Him king? Scripture makes no secret of the fact the kingmakers, culture-changers, pioneers, visionaries, bridge-builders, navigators, watchers, sentinels, cupbearers, mentors, coaches and God-namers were so often women. The virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31 is also a woman of valour. This sequel to the best-selling MORE PRECIOUS THAN PEARLS continues to highlight the underrated role of women in Scripture. With study helps in each chapter, plus prayers to bless you as well as your sisters in Christ.
