Ninety years ago, Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamen's mummy lying, surrounded by grave goods, in a virtually intact tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Egyptology would never be the same again. Tutankhamen's Curse approaches the story of the lost king and his development into a cultural icon with fresh eyes. Stripping away the layers of modern myths that threaten to obscure the king, it uses the evidence from his tomb to reconstruct a family and a history for Tutankhamen. Tutankhamen's Curse is designed to appeal to the widest of readerships, from general readers and history fans to students of Egyptology and archaeology.

The "magical power of the spoken word" is a topic that often comes up in a discussion of biblical blessings and curses. What is the source of social and linguistic power behind these blessings and curses? Many theologians would agree that God can and does bless, but does God also curse? If so, what does that mean to the biblical theology of the Old Testament and the Christian church? Anderson's The Blessing and the Curse applies speech act theory as one way to understand the performative function of blessings and curses. The concept of speech acts provides a method of recognizing the potent social power of language to accomplish certain ends, without drawing a hard line of distinction between word-magic and religion. Even though the chief concepts and practices of blessings and curses are deeply rooted in the broad cultural environment of the ancient Near East, tracing specific trajectories of Old Testament blessings and curses as theological themes conveys broad, inescapable implications for the biblical narrative and the Christian church.

Now in the Fourth Great War, the Rodain have secured the masterstroke of doom by stealing the Opstone from Castle Gartigraccus with the help of a great treason. Teetering on the brink of annihilation, Adathor, King of the Gartigraccians, must overcome the venom that caused his people to turn from the vision of their founder to the vision of the man behind the rebellion. Yet before he can pursue this, he must go away south on a desperate mission to the Three Kingdoms to gain allies-or else be swept away in the Black March of the Rodain come springtime. To aid him while he is away, two men have arrived in the city, proclaiming that the long-awaited Son of the Father has arrived and is at work in the hearts of many. The man selected as regent in Adathor's absence seeks to gainsay these two men at every turn in a war over the legitimacy of truth, calling for an absolute removal of the Father from their society so that they can be free to pursue his notion of freedom. In this late hour, can the tide be turned, or will all fall to the curse of the Rodain?

An Invisible Journey Begins "An invisible force pushed me back to the solid forest ground. Th e portal sealed off with one last burst of light, and then I was left alone with the eerily tall trees." "I lay on the forest floor for a moment, shuddering from the encounter with the woman. I pushed myself off the ground and crossed the dirty forest path to the twins' house, still jittering. It didn't take long for me to register the familiarity of the woman: her black hair, charcoal eyes, venomous tone." "The headmistress was back." AFTER AN UNTHINKABLE BATTLE, Arica Miller is bursting with questions. The last thing she expected was to go to the source of all magic-the Sorcerers Underworld. She soon realizes the magical world is facing an immense threat: The king's crown, also known as the Jewel, has been stolen by an unknown thief. And what's worse, the gemstones have been taken by a magical flood that has a suspicious link to the headmistress. Now Arica and her cousins are summoned to go on a dangerous search that leads them to the waters of the Bermuda Triangle. If Arica wishes to return home, she must find the gemstones and unlock the mystery of the Jewel's thief; but what she doesn't realize is that the culprit could be closer to her than she'd ever imagined....

Naráyana’s best-seller gives its reader much more than “Friendly Advice.” In one handy collection—closely related to the world-famous Pañcatantra or Five Discourses on Worldly Wisdom —numerous animal fables are interwoven with human stories, all designed to instruct wayward princes. Tales of canny procuresses compete with those of cunning crows and tigers. An intrusive ass is simply thrashed by his master, but the meddlesome monkey ends up with his testicles crushed. One prince manages to enjoy himself with a merchant’s wife with her husband’s consent, while another is kicked out of paradise by a painted image. This volume also contains the compact version of King Víkrama’s Adventures, thirty-two popular tales about a generous emperor, told by thirty-two statuettes adorning his lion-throne.

General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations. The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.
