In a culture marked by rap music, texting, and e-mail, the art of language is being reduced to short symbols, quick concepts, and melodic tones. As communicators, we are not using the power of language to shape the culture as was accomplished in much earlier cultures. In The Language of Kings, author E. James Logan examines the language spoken in the Bible and makes parallels to today’s world. Using biblical quotations and follow-up examples, The Language of Kings analyzes the role of language between those favored by God and those who were disfavored. Bishop Logan shows how kings spoke di?erently than tyrants and dictators and describes the impact of those words on others. The Language of Kings explores the possibility of reincarnating the faith-?lled language spoken by kings during the time of the Bible in order to bring about a more civilized, polite, and caring world. Bishop Logan advocates using kinder, gentler language that strengthens, encourages, and teaches the power of the spoken word. “By speaking the language of kings one to another; we will release, share and impart our love to each other. By doing so, people will know that Christ has disciplined us ... taught us to again speak the language of Kings!” (EJL)

Shahnama: The Visual Language of the Persian Book of Kings presents the first comprehensive examination of the interplay between text and image in the celebrated Persian national epic, the Shahnama, written by the poet Firdausi of Tus. The Shahnama is one of the longest poems ever composed and recounts the history of Iran from the dawn of time to the Muslim Arab conquests of the seventh century AD. There is no Persian text, in prose or poetry, which has been so frequently and lavishly illustrated. Offering fresh insights through a range of varied art-historical approaches to the Shahnama, the essays in this volume reveal how the subtle alterations in text and image serve to document changes in taste and style and can be understood as reflections of the changing role of the national epic in the imagination of Iranians and the equally changing messages - often political in nature - which the familiar stories were made to convey over the centuries.

In the beginning of time, God created the world in which we live in. Everything that exists, whether visible or invisible, God is responsible for its entry. The fish of the sea, the fowl of the air and every creeping thing, He created them all. He also created the sun, moon and the stars, dry land and the trees. But, the most interesting thing about creation is that out of all of the wonderful things He created, never did he use any tools or machinery. He had no scaffolds, hammers, nails, or computers. It required no physical strength, nor did it require inspection from code enforcement. As beautiful as the birds, the clouds and the ocean, the uniqueness about it all is, they all were created by a spoken word. And, finally after speaking everything in existence, He said everything I made it was good. To top it all off, the Bible says God used a mist to water the earth, because there was no man to till the ground. Then, God created man in HIS image and after HIS likeness and gave THEM dominion over the fish of the sea the fowls of the air and every creeping thing that crept upon the earth. In fact, if MAN is created in His image and after His likeness, he is then ordered to operate like God in the earth realm. So, his assignment was to name the animals. In other words, start working with your mouth. His authority was SWEAT less and came from his mouth. What he said was law. After being so persistent and tenacious, God decided that he would give man a helpmeet. One day, while she was in the garden, the serpent came and began to introduce her to another language called deception. Then, she gave that same deception to her husband. That language was so deceiving that it made them feel naked and stripped them from a God understanding. Their mind and understanding was different, their culture changed and it also decreased their ability to have sweat less success. When God showed up, they ran and hid from their own image. That deception stripped them of identity, fellowship with God and made them aware of their nakedness, in which God hid from them. Then, God asked him, "Adam where art thou?"His reply was a language or an understanding that God never taught him. He said, "I heard thy voice in the garden and I was afraid. Because I was naked; and I hide myself."Watch Gods reply. WHO TOLD THEE, THAT THOU WAST NAKED? Every day, the VOICE of God came walking through the garden. The very language of God walked in the garden. So, God cursed his ability to reap without sweat, now he has to work from the sweat of his brow. The journey of God was to get man back to his original place. Throughout the history of the Bible, we saw man attempt to walk back into the place of vocal authority. In Joshua 10 verse 12, Joshua spoke to the sun and it stood still. Elijah spoke to the rain and it could not rain for 3 years. Ezekiel spoke to the wind and the dry bones and the dry bones came back to life. Jesus spoke to the storm and said peace be still and it stood still. After Jesus rose from the dead, He restored us back to our original place of authority. Revelation 1 and 6 says, "He made us to be Kings and Priests." A King works with his mouth and not his hands. So, one of the primary functions of church is speech therapy. It's design to teach us how to speak those things that are not as though they were. So, this is a book of confessions. Every day, when you rise like Job 38 and 12 says, "Have you commanded the morning since your days so the dayspring may know its place." Rise, you Kings and command your morning, with daily confessions!

The definitive translation by Dick Davis of the great national epic of Iran—now newly revised and expanded to be the most complete English-language edition Dick Davis—“our pre-eminent translator from the Persian” (The Washington Post)—has revised and expanded his acclaimed translation of Ferdowsi’s masterpiece, adding more than 100 pages of newly translated text. Davis’s elegant combination of prose and verse allows the poetry of the Shahnameh to sing its own tales directly, interspersed sparingly with clearly marked explanations to ease along modern readers. Originally composed for the Samanid princes of Khorasan in the tenth century, the Shahnameh is among the greatest works of world literature. This prodigious narrative tells the story of pre-Islamic Persia, from the mythical creation of the world and the dawn of Persian civilization through the seventh-century Arab conquest. The stories of the Shahnameh are deeply embedded in Persian culture and beyond, as attested by their appearance in such works as The Kite Runner and the love poems of Rumi and Hafez.

“This volume, by Biblical scholar Yochi Brandes, is a riveting novel based on textual sources about the experiences of David and Solomon. Its lessons are also relevant for our turbulent time.” —Elie Wiesel, #1 New York Times and internationally bestselling author of Night In the tradition of The Red Tent from internationally bestselling author Yochi Brandes comes the stories of the struggles of King David and King Saul in the early days of the Kingdom of Israel, seen through the eyes of Michal, Saul’s daughter and David’s abandoned queen Stories are deadlier than swords. Swords kill only those who stand before them, stories decide who will live and die in generations to come. Shelomoam, a young man from the tribe of Ephraim, has grown up in the shadow of dark secrets. He wonders why his father is deathly afraid of the King’s soldiers and why his mother has lied about the identities of those closest to him. Shelomoam is determined to unearth his mysterious past, never imagining where his quest will ultimately lead him. The Secret Book of Kings upends conventions of biblical novels, engaging with the canonized stories of the founding of the Kingdom of Israel and turning them on their heads. Presented for the first time are the heretofore unknown stories of the House of Saul and of the northern Kingdom of Israel, stories that were artfully concealed by the House of David and the scribes of the southern Kingdom of Judah. Yochi Brandes, one of Israel’s all-time bestselling novelists, enlists her unique background in both academic Jewish scholarship and traditional religious commentaries to read the Bible in an utterly new way. In this book, a major publishing phenomenon in Israel and one of the bestselling novels in the history of the country, she uncovers vibrant characters, especially women, buried deep within the scriptures, and asks the loaded question: to what extent can we really know our past when history is written by the victors?

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings, Book One of the Stormlight Archive begins an incredible new saga of epic proportion. Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor that transform ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Men trade kingdoms for Shardblades. Wars were fought for them, and won by them. One such war rages on a ruined landscape called the Shattered Plains. There, Kaladin, who traded his medical apprenticeship for a spear to protect his little brother, has been reduced to slavery. In a war that makes no sense, where ten armies fight separately against a single foe, he struggles to save his men and to fathom the leaders who consider them expendable. Brightlord Dalinar Kholin commands one of those other armies. Like his brother, the late king, he is fascinated by an ancient text called The Way of Kings. Troubled by over-powering visions of ancient times and the Knights Radiant, he has begun to doubt his own sanity. Across the ocean, an untried young woman named Shallan seeks to train under an eminent scholar and notorious heretic, Dalinar's niece, Jasnah. Though she genuinely loves learning, Shallan's motives are less than pure. As she plans a daring theft, her research for Jasnah hints at secrets of the Knights Radiant and the true cause of the war. The result of over ten years of planning, writing, and world-building, The Way of Kings is but the opening movement of the Stormlight Archive, a bold masterpiece in the making. Speak again the ancient oaths: Life before death. Strength before weakness. Journey before Destination. and return to men the Shards they once bore. The Knights Radiant must stand again.
