Books Are Weapons Books have wielded an immense power for good and evil throughout the history of the human race. Here is a thoughtful and probing discussion of sixteen of the most important works of all time which influenced history, economics, culture, civilization, and scientific thought from the Renaissance to the present day. Such widely different, but immensely powerful books as Hitler’s Mein Kampf, which foreshadowed the death and destruction of World War II, Harvey’s famous volume on blood circulation which revolutionized medical theory and treatment, Einstein’s theories on relativity which opened the atomic age are clearly described in this provocative and readable volume. Dr. Downs, former President of the American Library Association and head of the University of Illinois Library, also shows the widespread and decisive influence of other great works, including Newton’s presentation of his discovery of the laws of gravity, a cornerstone in scientific theory today, Darwin’s Origin of Species which many churchmen thought contradicted the Bible, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin which is considered one of the major causes of the American Civil War, and Freud’s Interpretation of Dreams, the great volume from the man who revolutionized modern man’s thoughts about himself. Altogether, here is a fascinating presentation of books from many times which shows the tremendous power of the printed word on human development.

I Thirst It Is Finished . . . Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit Postscript: The Words After That In 24 Hours That Changed the World, Adam Hamilton took us on a Lenten journey through the last day of Jesus' life. Now in this inspiring follow-up book, Hamilton explores these final words as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of those who stood near the cross. Each chapter begins with the biblical account followed by a first-person story as might have been told from the viewpoint of one of the characters at the cross. Then the chapter explores the meaning of Jesus’ dying words for our lives today. Following the last statement, a postscript recounts the words Jesus spoke following his resurrection, including what truly were the final words Jesus spoke while walking this earth. Join the crowd now and experience the final words from the cross. Final Words from the Cross offers six chapters/sessions plus a postscript chapter/session, so that classes have the option of a seventh session on Easter Sunday.
