In the darkness, the battle we fight can be very detrimental, very costly. It isn’t how long or how short the battle is, but how well equipped we are for fighting the enemy. “The night is long, the battle sore, No time to stop and tally score. Keep fighting on, don’t give up ground, For soon you’ll wear the victor’s crown.” Our trust must be in God’s ability to see us through the darkest times, not in His desire to let us escape the night. “When I Sit In Darkness” is a beacon that will cast a light into your world, giving you strength for today and hope for tomorrow. From its pages, I trust that you can feel the Spirit of the Lord as the words sink deep into your soul, and bring assurance that you will survive your darkness.

After dozens of Lexington, Kentucky’s forgotten—mostly prostitutes and the homeless—swamp local hospitals from apparent overdoses over the 4th of July weekend, Kentucky cops soon discover a new synthetic form of heroin is infecting their communities, and that gangs—namely the outlaw motorcycle gang Samael’s Army—are responsible for using a “disposable” population to test the new drug. Soon after, the deadly new drug claims the daughter of a U.S. senator, and FBI Director Jack Waller assigns Brooke Fairfax to the case. Because the synthetic opioid was created in a lab, the feds turn to the expertise of billionaire chemist Declan O’Roark, who is all too happy to lend a hand if it will bring him closer to Brooke. As Brooke and Declan are forced to work together, Declan attempts to tear down the barriers around Brooke’s heart.

Within merely a few decades after the Russian Revolution, the mighty Russian Jewish community, world-largest and millennium-old, turned into a faint shadow of itself. Never before had world Jewry experienced such a rapid, catastrophic collapse of such an immense and long-established community. Never before had so many young Jews rushed so eagerly after false prophets-in this case Communist ideologues — leaving in their wake the ruins of their own nation and contributing to horrific cataclysms throughout the world. In this frank account, Samuil Khasin offers a remarkable personal view of the forces behind the astonishing collapse. Through the lens of one representative family's life, he sheds a penetrating light on the dramatic evolution of his generation and country from enthusiastic acceptance of Bolshevism to devastations of Stalin's terror to bitter disillusionment and rejection. Speaking as one of those who were both victims and participants of the momentous events, he helps to explore the mystery and the horror of the tragically intertwined historical disasters-the rise of Soviet Communism and the collapse of the Russian Jewry.
