When the Holy Family fled to Egypt to escape the wrath of King Herod Antipas, they journeyed for three years throughout Egypt, mainly along the Nile, to keep Herod’s agents at bay. Using an ancient 4th century text written by Patriarch Theophilus of Alexandria as his guide, Cowan takes the reader on a fascinating journey through modern-day Egypt in the footsteps of the Holy Family, about the Delta region and up the Nile to a place called Mount Qussqam, where Mary, Joseph, and the infant Jesus resided for six months. The itinerary, according to Coptic tradition, was revealed to Theophilus in a dream. Documenting his journey, Cowan finds himself in the midst of a spiritual revolution going on in Egypt itself. He meets with monks and health workers, desert mystics and visionaries, all of whom have a stake in the story of the Holy Family’s journey, as they know it. Through their eyes the reader is drawn into a dramatic story of escape and miraculous interventions.

A Warning To Sinners To Flee From The Wrath To Come

In this timely evangelical work that should be shared with everyone, Vincent states that "sin will have a very bad end." Original and actual sin will send a man, woman, or child to hell unless they are converted by Jesus Christ. All that have gone into another world are sensible of it, though few in this world perceive it. When the servants of sin have received their wages, which is death, then they will know their sorrow. They will know what kind of master they have served, and what pains they foolishly took for that misery, which they should have taken pains to have prevented. Vincent explains Romans 14:10, "We shall stand before the judgment seat of Christ." He covers the Judge (God), those who will be judged (all men), things which are to be judged (all thoughts, actions and deeds) and the certainty of judgment. He also covers Matthew 11:23, "And thou Capernaum, which are exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell!" Here he gives application and a warning: turn to God, or be turned into hell.

The Stories Of J F Powers

Hailed by Frank O’Connor as one of “the greatest living storytellers,” J. F. Powers, who died in 1999, stands with Eudora Welty, Flannery O’Connor, and Raymond Carver among the authors who have given the short story an unmistakably American cast. In three slim collections of perfectly crafted stories, published over a period of some thirty years and brought together here in a single volume for the first time, Powers wrote about many things: baseball and jazz, race riots and lynchings, the Great Depression, and the flight to the suburbs. His greatest subject, however—and one that was uniquely his—was the life of priests in Chicago and the Midwest. Powers’s thoroughly human priests, who include do-gooders, gladhanders, wheeler-dealers, petty tyrants, and even the odd saint, struggle to keep up with the Joneses in a country unabashedly devoted to consumption. These beautifully written, deeply sympathetic, and very funny stories are an unforgettable record of the precarious balancing act that is American life.
