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.
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.
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.
A 50th anniversary edition of Margaret Walker's best-selling classic with a foreword by Nikki Giovanni “Chronicles the triumph of a free spirit over many kinds of bondage.” —New York Times Book Review Jubilee tells the true story of Vyry, the child of a white plantation owner and his black mistress. Vyry bears witness to the South’s antebellum opulence and to its brutality, its wartime ruin, and the promises of Reconstruction. Weaving her own family’s oral history with thirty years of research, Margaret Walker’s novel brings the everyday experiences of slaves to light. Jubilee churns with the hunger, the hymns, the struggles, and the very breath of American history.

When he learns that his pregnant wife has been spirited off to a distant city, William responds as any man might—he drops everything to pursue her. But as a fugitive slave in Antebellum America, he must run a terrifying gauntlet, eluding the many who would re-enslave him while learning to trust the few who dare to aid him on his quest. Among those hunting William is Morrison, a Scot who as a young man fled the miseries of his homeland only to discover even more brutal realities in the New World. Bearing many scars, including the loss of his beloved brother, Morrison tracks William for reasons of his own, a personal agenda rooted in tragic events that have haunted him for decades. Following up on his award-winning debut, Gabriel’s Story, David Anthony Durham presents another riveting tale, a brilliantly drawn portrait of America before the Civil War, and a provocative meditation on racial identity, freedom and equality. From the Trade Paperback edition.
