DISMOUNTED LIBERTY

by CHRIS GREGORY

The genre for "Dismounted Liberty" could best be described as a World War II creative non-fiction story. Although the events in the book actually happened, the author has creatively added probable, but unproven dialogue and internal monologue to descriptive narration - just as a T.V. producer would develop a docu-drama.

The subject matter of "Dismounted Liberty" deals with the life of Charlie - his formative years on the Columbia Plateau farm in eastern Washington State, the formation of his character, his young adulthood, and finally his contributions and sacrifices during World War II as Charlie entered the Army Air Corps and was transferred to the Philippines.

In his youth Charlie's favorite horse was Liberty, a gelding chestnut that served as the family's wor...

Letters From A Sailor

by Nick Mariano

“Letters From a Sailor” is a chronology of actual letters written by my father when he first joined the U.S.Navy, that he sent to his mother and father. This is the story of my father, a young man from a small town in Pennsylvania, who had never ventured outside the states of Pennsylvania and perhaps New Jersey before he joined the Navy. He joined the Navy to see the world and his observations and experiences are factually chronicled through letters he wrote home from 1935 to the beginning of 1937. There are no major sea battles taking place in my book, just day to day experiences of a young man in the U.S. Navy during an interesting period of time. A quick and fun read....

Forgiveness: A Journey with Jesus

by Raquel Hanic and Sarah Sandman

This authentic sharing of Raquel’s experience allows us to journey with her through the process of surrender through pain to Forgiveness. How often I’ve been asked if forgiveness is an event or a process. This vulnerable account and willingness to openly share the deepest thoughts, feelings, fears, temptation, and moments of despair discloses her intimate path of healing.

She screams from the acknowledgment of her limited ability to protect and her powerlessness to stop pain for the ones she loves. She comes to terms with her own humanity as she gives them over to her God.

Peter The Great: Autocrat And Reformer

by Michael W. Simmons

As the third son of the legendary Tsar Alexis, Peter the Great was never supposed to rule. But when his older brother died, the ten-year-old boy was proclaimed tsar by a cheering multitude outside the walls of the Kremlin. His destiny seemed assured—until a bloody rebellion erupted, forcing him to watch as his family was impaled and torn limb from limb by a mob of furious soldiers.From that day forward, Peter was determined to tear down the Old Muscovy and usher in a new Russia—dragging his backwards, traditional nobles into the 18th century by their long, bushy beards when necessary. He became the first tsar to sail the ocean, and the first Romanov to visit Europe. Standing six foot, eight inches tall, Peter took Europe in his immense stride, while laboring as a common carpenter in or...

A Retrospect (Updated Edition): The Story Behind My Zeal for Missions

by J. Hudson Taylor

J. Hudson Taylor is known as a key influencer in modern missions – what is less known but more important is that his “methods” were to trust in the Lord utterly and completely. He chose to forgo financial support from his parents and other well-meaning individuals, but instead waited on the Lord in all things. He even went hungry rather than mentioning needs to those who would gladly have given, so strong was his faith in the Lord as the only true source of all provision.

The Lord proved his faithfulness, providing in such a way as to show that the He indeed is good and wants to give good gifts to his children – even more than an earthly father. As a result of J. Hudson Taylor’s faith, countless others caught the vision, and the beginnings of a massive “missionary ...

I Just Saw Jesus: The JESUS Film – From Vision, to Reality, to the Unimaginable

by Paul Eshleman and Carolyn E. Phillips

This miraculous story reveals how JESUS began as one man’s vision and became a record-breaking film shown more than 9 billion times and convincing millions to follow Christ.

Volunteer film teams, missionaries, and pastors risk their lives daily, showing the film in remote tribes and villages, among religions that strictly prohibit Christianity, and even to the world’s most elite and powerful leaders. They have overcome threats, witches’ curses, and deadly diseases. The teams carry compact generators and portable projectors, often traveling by foot or horseback, bush plane or canoe. Their pure, unbridled joy comes from sharing JESUS with those who have not yet seen and heard the gospel.

The Rothschilds

by John Reeves

“WHAT’S in a name?” asks Shakespeare. The answer, when the name is such as Rothschild, is not difficult. There is a volume of meaning in its mere sound. It is a name which conjures up in the imagination visions of untold wealth and unrivalled power, which appear so startling and amazing as to be more appropriate to romance than real life. It has become a household word synonymous with unbounded riches, and is as familiar to the ears of the struggling artisan as to those of the banker or trader. No name has, indeed, been so prominently before the public during the last sixty years or more, as that of this great financial firm. Its origin was so shrouded in humble obscurity, and the rapidity with which it sprang forward to prosperity and fame was alike so extraordinary and so remarkabl...

by Egerton Ryerson Young

To be a missionary to Canadian Indians in the late 1800s meant you had to be brave and relentless. It meant nearly freezing when sleeping outside in 50-below-zero weather. It meant canoeing upstream for hundreds of miles to reach remote Indian villages. It meant eating wild cat and other stranger things, or eating nothing for days at a time. But it also meant you were privileged to present the good news of the true Great Spirit to those who were often misunderstood and mistreated. The adventures in this book are rivaled only by the incredible conversions of those who saw the Creator in nature and then worshipped Him too. You will be challenged and inspired by the results of one man who went where the Lord led, with little regard for himself.

This simply isn't true. Greatness does not come lightly. It requires that you make sacrifices of time, interests, and--sometimes--possessions. The further you move toward greatness, the more greatness demands from you.But all barriers yield to one mythical quality: drive. The will to persist and overcome. To never give up. To never accept defeat. Few stories better illustrate this better than th...
