For nearly two-thirds of the Bible, God's people lived by a standard called the Torah (teaching) handed down by revelation to Moses. In the modern church we call this Torah, law, and say that it no... More > longer applies. But do we know why we say that? Does it seem odd that our proof texts come from the portion of scripture that was not even available when God's people were being asked to make this huge paradigm shift?

A Backward Glance By Edith Wharton
eBook (ePub): $1.61
Download immediately.
Originally published in 1934, A Backward Glance is a memoir written by Wharton in her last years. The book dwells on Wharton's early and middle life leading up to and including her experiences during... More > the First World War. The final chapter covers her life after the war, close on twenty years, emphasising a Mediterranean cruise and the unexpected death of her friend Geoffrey Scott. This is most certainly a writer's memoir rather than an autobiographical narrative. The writing itself is poised and mature; Wharton here reads like a confident artisan, at ease with her profession and happy to reel off her thought and remembrances. The reason it isn't an autobiography in the strictest sense is that Wharton leaves so much of her life out of the book, some of it for obvious reasons – such as the Morton Fullerton affair – and others maybe because she just can't be bothered. That aside, it's a joy to read.< Less

The book tells the story of Julian West, a young American who, towards the end of the 19th century, falls into a deep, hypnosis-induced sleep and wakes up one hundred and thirteen years later. He... More > finds himself in the same location (Boston, Massachusetts), but in a totally changed world: It is the year 2000 and, while he was sleeping, the United States has been transformed into a socialist utopia.

"Backwards" Tunnel By Wasco Hadowanetz

“Backwards” Tunnel This book relates the historical sequence of how a glacial embankment influenced railroad engineers to provide service to Ogdensburg, New Jersey; and the crucial role... More > that the “Backwards” Tunnel played in making it possible. It also describes the actions that were taken to save this dual-arched structure. In this volume Wasco settles the debate as to whether or not the Midland Engineers built the “Backwards” Tunnel correctly. During the early to mid-nineteenth century, a race was ongoing among competing eastern railroad companies to build the quickest and most profitable routes to New York City markets. The decision was made to proceed from Middletown through the Munson’s Gap. To reach this gap they had to bridge what was called a “yawning gulch” in Ogdensburg. Engineers decided to resolve this problem by building what was later called the “Backwards” Tunnel. Although the glacial moraine facilitated rail construction, building the tunnel was to be a formidable task.< Less
