Holidays come around every year. The older we get, the faster they come. And, the older we get, the less magical they often seem. Ministers struggle to find new and captivating angles on the stories that have been told and retold for centuries. The rest of us just struggle to find some meaning amid all the sensationalism that typically surrounds these holy days.In The Truth is Sensational Enough, Jim Dant offers some hope for both the preacher and the listener. Beginning with the season of Advent, Dant guides us to Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Holy Week, Easter and Pentecost. Added to these prominent holy days are sermons and thoughts for St. Valentine?s Day, All Saints Day, national holidays, and even Stewardship Sunday! Not in the holiday mood? No problem. The lessons and insights tucked into these pages would be welcomed on any day of your life.The nature of these meditations is rooted in the author?s personal background. His faith background, however, is much broader than his geographic home. He was born to a Jewish mother, eventually christened into the Roman Catholic church, adopted as an elementary-age student into a Baptist family and finally educated at a Presbyterian seminary. It is from that rich background that he shares these stories and sermons with us.

There is this mystery of man’s relationship to God. Every person has this relationship. We need to make the exploration of that relationship a life-long priority. We identify with our bodies, but we are not our body. Similarly, we identify with our culture, language, religions, but we are not any of these things either. Our true story is the story of our real identity. We need to find out who that is. Just as we have duties in the world at the same time we also have to do what is necessary to understand reality, and who we are in that reality. That, in fact, is our primary duty. - Musa Muhaiyaddeen “This book will enrich your life.” - Professor Beverly Mack, PhD., University of Kansas

Under what conditions does 'sensation' become 'sensational'? In the early nineteenth century murder was a staple of the sensationalizing popular press and gruesome descriptions were deployed to make a direct impact on the sensations of the reader. By the end of the century, public concern with the thrills, spills, and shocks of modern life was increasingly articulated in the language of sensation. Media sensationalism contributed to this process and magnified its impact, just as sensation was, in turn, taken up by literature, art and film. In the contemporary world the dramatization of these experiences in an era of media panics over terrorism and paedophilia has taken an overtly melodramatic form, in which battles of good and evil play out across the landscapes of our lives. Sensational Subjects develops an innovative, interdisciplinary approach to exploring these themes, their impact and their implications for understanding the modern world. A companion volume, Sympathetic Sentiments: Affect, Emotion and Spectacle in the Modern World is published simultaneously by Bloomsbury.

On New Year's Day, 1753, Elizabeth Canning disappeared. An eighteen-year-old girl, she was unremarkable in every respect, from her appearance to her disposition, but she was about to become the most famous person in London. When she reappeared one month later, starving and ill, she claimed she had been abducted and held captive by a woman named Susannah Wells, who wanted Elizabeth to work for her as a prostitute. Based on Elizabeth's testimony, Wells was arrested, tried, and convicted—but the case was just getting started. Convinced the young woman was lying, the Lord Mayor of London set out to uncover the truth. What followed was one of the most celebrated criminal cases of the era. The controversy, which threatened to tear London apart, revolved around one frightened, mysterious girl. Meticulously researched and irresistibly readable, Elizabeth Is Missing is the definitive account of one of the most unusual cases of the eighteenth century, a must-read for fans of historical true crime.

A significant pillar of twentieth century dispensationalism, is the postponement doctrine of the kingdom of God. This indiscriminate futurism has caused great damage and robbed the gospel of its power in the lives of believers for years. John the Baptist and Jesus both clearly identified the kingdom with the era of the Holy Spirit. At no time anywhere in Scripture, was the coming of the kingdom made conditional on a Jewish response or event. What more effective strategy could the enemy use than to have Christians believe they should be in passive waiting mode? Has our failure to proclaim a full and accurate gospel of the kingdom, left nations untouched, still plagued by disease, famine and corruption, despite decades of "evangelism"? An eschatology of victory awaits a victorious church, that engages with the Holy Spirit in this present apostolic season. Creation has been waiting in eager expectation for the manifestation of the sons of God. What are the sons waiting for? Are you ready to respond? In this book Kobus Swart resolutely confronts the erroneous doctrinal stronghold of eschatology. For centuries the church has been imprisoned and restrained in fulfilling its governmental mandate because of inaccurate interpretations of the end times. This is an invaluable resource in identifying and unveiling deceptive eschatological ideologies and presenting a more accurate understanding of the end of the age. Thamo Naidoo, River of Life Ministries, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Kobus Swart has been in full time ministry since 1974, and is the founder of the Bizweni Community Church in Somerset West, near Cape Town, South Africa, where he and his family live. From this apostolic resource base he leads a ministry team serving believers both locally and in other nations.

The Nautical Magazine first appeared in 1832, and was published monthly well into the twenty-first century. It covers a wide range of subjects, including navigation, meteorology, technology and safety. An important resource for maritime historians, it also includes reports on military and scientific expeditions and on current affairs. The 1875 volume is again dominated by reports on the Merchant Shipping Bill and debates on seaworthiness, with the editor continuing to prefer 'personal responsibility' to 'Plimsolecisms' and 'grandmotherly supervision' by the government. Serials focus on the economies of the British colonies, Atlantic shipping lines and emigration to South America, but fiction no longer features. Other topics include the opening of the Royal Naval Museum at Greenwich, innovations such as steel hawsers and desalination apparatus for producing drinking water, a proposal for generating power from wave action, and suggestions for using rats as a tasty and economical food source.
