More > first seems like a straight-forward murder case of a prostitute called Maria but devolves into a search for a woman who might not have been a prostitute at all.

More > big, fleet-footed Zulu was nobody’s slave, and to prove it he escaped and headed west.

The Certainty of Heavenly and the Uncertainty of Earthly Treasures By William Strong
Paperback: $14.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
William Strong, A.M. (d. 1654) was an active Westminster Puritan and Calvinistic minister. "He was so plain in heart, so deep in judgment, so painful in study, so frequent, exact, and laborious... More > in preaching, and, in a word, so eminently qualified for all the duties of the ministerial office, that he did not know his equal.” This work by William Strong is a treatise on discovering where the treasure of your heart is placed. He shows the certainty and stability, and moral goodness, of the heart being placed on God (the greatest heavenly treasure), and the instability and fleeting nature of the heart placed on “earthly” treasures (everything else outside of God). He works from Christ’s direction in the text, “Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also,” (Matt. 6:20-21), demonstrating that every man in this life has a treasure, and God alone should be it. This is an extremely convicting work that will in no way leave the regenerate Christian unaffected.< Less

Comfort comes in a variety of ways in our lives. Family is a great comfort. Friends bring comfort and joy. We are happy when we have a comfortable living, and what gladness we have when we can be... More > comfortable in all the circumstances of life. Of course when all these temporal comforts are shaken, that which cannot be shaken remains. This is why we must find our comfort not in the fleeting, but those things that never pass away. What is the answer? As Joseph in Egypt, we must open up the storage and feed ourselves and all the earth. We cannot say “be ye warmed and filled” and go on our merry way. You and I must do the hard work of meditation on the Person and Work of Jesus Christ. May Christ draw you to Himself and clothe you with that robe of righteousness. Imbibe all the comforts He has prepared for you and feast on the morsels of His Person. “Taste and see that the Lord is good,” and you will hunger no more for this world!< Less

Rhymes a la Mode by Andrew Lang BALLADE DEDICATORY--TO MRS. ELTON OF WHITE STAUNTON The painted Briton built his mound, And left his celts and clay, On yon fair slope of sunlit ground That... More > fronts your garden gay; The Roman came, he bore the sway, He bullied, bought, and sold, Your fountain sweeps his works away Beside your manor old! But still his crumbling urns are found Within the window-bay, Where once he listened to the sound That lulls you day by day; - The sound of summer winds at play, The noise of waters cold To Yarty wandering on their way, Beside your manor old! The Roman fell: his firm-set bound Became the Saxon's stay; The bells made music all around For monks in cloisters grey, Till fled the monks in disarray From their warm chantry's fold, Old Abbots slumber as they may, Beside your manor old! ENVOY Creeds, empires, peoples, all decay, Down into darkness, rolled; May life that's fleet be sweet, I pray, Beside your manor old.< Less
