It is 2558 AD. Mankind has reached the stars, but only because the alien Stekoni race has given us their technology. For humankind, the Zakkaist Church -- a melding of the three largest monotheistic religions -- rules both politically and religiously. But in the veils between the stars, the voice of an alien God roars, and the coming of a new messiah has been foretold: the Sartius Exori. The Black Beginning. Colin Fairwood, a cynical and horribly scarred man, hears that voice, but he ignores it until a miraculous escape from death leaves him with strange powers and a bitter faith. "It cost me an entire night's sleep... A mystic novel with a gritty and courageous sense of realism. The ending was absolutely perfect." -- L. Neil Smith, author of 'Tom Paine Maru' "Complex, intriguing, unfailingly interesting. I recommend it enthusiastically!" -- C. J. Cherryh, award-winning author. "THE BONES OF GOD is easily the best and most important novel of Stephen Leigh's burgeoning career." -- Mike Resnick, award-winning author. "This is a fascinating book, thoughtful and thought-provoking." - Sue Thomason, reviewing in "Paperback Inferno"

The Bible is a book concerned with faith. Because God is a God of relationship, the Bible traces the lives of many who had a relationship with God, as well as many who did not. In the Bible God tells Hosea, “for I am God and no mortal,” (11:9). Simply put, this scripture teaches us that God does not choose as we do. For example, he delivers The Ten Commandments into the hands of a murderer, a non-Jewish prostitute is chosen to become the great-great grandmother of King David of Israel, and a hated Samaritan becomes the hero of one of Jesus’ most enduring parables. These Biblical figures can teach us much about grace, faith, courage, and repentance. Through brief daily readings, The Bones of the Bible reviews and makes relevant some of the people and events of each book of the Bible, all within the course of a year. You will discover that their journeys are not that different from our own and that the one constant we can depend on is the grace of a loving God.

Certain works of fantasy are immediately recognizable as monuments, towering above the rest of the category. They have been written by the likes of Stephen R. Donaldson, Robert Jordan, and Terry Goodkind. Now add to that list David Farland, whose epic fantasy series began with The Runelords, continued in Brotherhood of the Wolf and the New York Times bestseller Wizardborn, and reaches its peak now in The Lair of Bones. Prince Gaborn, the Earth King, has defeated the forces arrayed against him each time before: the magical and human forces marshaled by Raj Ahten, who seeks immortality at any cost and has given up his humanity in trade; and the inhuman, innumerable, insectile hordes of the giant Reavers from under the Earth, whose motives are unknowable, but inimical to human life. Now there must be final confrontations, both on the field of battle, with the supernatural creature that Raj Ahten has become, and underground, in the cavernous homeland of the Reavers, where the sorcerous One True Master who rules them all lies in wait--in the Lair of Bones. The survival of the human race on Earth is at stake. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Matthew, an apostle of Jesus, relates a first-person account of what transpired on Thursday, the fourteenth day of Nisan, as well as the agonizing events of Friday, the fifteenth, in Jerusalem. Nisan is the first month of the Jewish year; it is when the meadows turn green once again and when Passover is celebrated. It is the month when barley and flax are harvested. Matthew, through a powerful recreation of events, describes that atmosphere that surrounded the Master and his disciples, starting with Sunday, the tenth day of Nisan, when Jerusalem’s joyful inhabitants proclaimed Jesus the Messiah. The novel offers a minutely detailed description of first-century Jerusalem—its temple, huge and overpowering; the commerce that was carried out behind its walls; its ideologically divided citizenry; and the totally insurmountable customs of the ruling class, the priests who forced the outcome on that Friday. These are the dramatic hours during which the judgment of Jesus is reproduced, as well as the efforts of Herod and Pontius Pilate to rid themselves of the responsibility of having to condemn the Savior and his merciless torture and execution. The human nature of what transpires in this book enters the reader’s mind during the scenes of the apostles at the Passover supper. The supper is depicted as an astonishing event, in a way that is different from what art and legend has instilled in us over the course of many centuries. The reader will become familiar with Genesareth Lake, the Mount of Olives’ diverse forest, the pain experienced in the garden of Gethsemane, the harsh torture at Golgotha, and Samaria’s dusty roads, realizing just how terrifying that Thursday night in Jerusalem, shrouded in shadows, was as the patrols carried out their search for Jesus.

It was my luck to learn from Jerry Moriarity what integrity in journalism is all about. Lloyd Schermer, former president of Lee Enterprises Should you be travelling to this area in October or November, I would enjoy a visit.Ex-President Richard Nixon Jerry Moriarity lived in the glorious era of newspapering and had a love affair with newspapers and the printed word. After more than forty interviews and photo opportunities with the last eleven presidents, Moriarity began to imagine the ideal U.S. President. These topics created his study of the presidents, his hobby for the last fifty years. All Things Considered on National Public Radio interviewed Moriarity five times on because of a Nixon editorial he wrote. This book is not solely about presidents, but includes other interviews he has had during the years. He has interviewed and photographed many important people such as Senator Barry Goldwater, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, John Glenn, Haile Selassie, Meredith Willson, Edward Ellis, Cornel Wilde, Errol Flynn, Walter Mondale, etc. He has added a few human-interest stories such as when U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy removed a cigar from Moriaritys mouth and dunked it in his coffee.
