An extensive commentary on the Book of Jubilees, followed by a series of chapters exploring the possibility that the book had more than one author, as well as its relationship to the Genesis Apocryphon, the Aramaic Levi Document, 4Q225 Pseudo-Jubilees, and the writings of Philo of Alexandria.
Poetic Expressions of Jubilee is a book of poems that deal with real life situations that we all may face at one time or another. If you have not experienced some of the items discussed in the poems, you probably know someone who has experienced the highs and lows of Life. The poems also deal with Salvation, Death, and Having a Personal Relationship with God.
Please join us as we walk through the life experiences of just one of the many individuals who desire to express their gratitude to the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Finding grace and mercy; forgiveness and healing, LuAnn Caperton uses her own shortcomings, downfalls, and realizations to show you the many examples of how this God of the universe relates, sees, and cares for even the smallest of us. At age fifty, LuAnn has chosen to share this Jubilee in celebration and thanks for God’s gift of His Son, Jesus Christ, and the redemption He brings to each of us. In this stack of letter-filled pages, you’ll find fifty wondrous stories of how the Lord has ministered to her while walking through everyday life. “Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, And thy thoughts which are to us-ward” (Psalm 40:5a). LuAnn’s hopes are that somewhere in these simple yet heartfelt words to follow, your hope in Christ will either be found for the first time or strengthened in some way by what you read.
Jubilee Day is a page-turning thriller ripped from today's headlines. Set in November 2011, a mysterious group calling itself Jubilee is assassinating prominent conservatives-the chief justice of the Supreme Court; a former, but still powerful, vice president; several of the bankers who profited from the crash of '07-with a simple warning: Six will die, every day, until you start sharing your wealth and power. As the Jubilees make good on their threat and law enforcement proves unable to stop them, America's leaders are forced to choose: risk personal death by defying Jubilee or acquiesce to their demands, which include a progressive tax on millionaires, caps on executive compensation, cutting military spending in half, and, the key to it all, a national Jubilee-the forgiveness of all debts.
Hundreds touched by the preaching ministry of Evangelist Kabanje have consistently encouraged him to immortalize God's Word in book form. This devotional and inspirational work supplements the Bible in soul edification.

Just as she turned fifty, Mary Heron Dyer was fired from her social services job. As she anxiously pondered her future, she remembered reading that every fiftieth year the ancient Israelites gave up day-to-day routine and lived on stored abundance. The Year of Jubilee. She decided to claim her own Year of Jubilee, even though her only "stored abundance" was her passion for gardening -- and the belief that an unseen force would guide her.

Genre: BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY
Originally published in 1893, Thomas Bland Strange's autobiography is more entertaining than most military memoirs because Strange writes vividly and makes no effort to conceal his prejudices and eccentricities. This is one of the best sources for the history of the North West Rebellion and especially the Alberta Force Field.
