"A masterpiece of contemporary Bible translation and commentary."—Los Angeles Times Book Review, Best Books of 1999 Acclaimed for its masterful new translation and insightful commentary, The David Story is a fresh, vivid rendition of one of the great works in Western literature. Robert Alter's brilliant translation gives us David, the beautiful, musical hero who slays Goliath and, through his struggles with Saul, advances to the kingship of Israel. But this David is also fully human: an ambitious, calculating man who navigates his life's course with a flawed moral vision. The consequences for him, his family, and his nation are tragic and bloody. Historical personage and full-blooded imagining, David is the creation of a literary artist comparable to the Shakespeare of the history plays.

DON'T GET CAUGHT IN THE LAST RUSH! Burning with the fire of the Holy Spirit, the author, a dedicated minister of Christ, presents a searching research into the meaning of the Bible, from Genesis to the role of the Apostles, and ends with a clear and straightforward re-iteration of the salvation message. While God answers the worshipper's prayer, Salvation is easy, as is receiving the Holy Spirit, for one cannot receive the Holy Spirit without the Son, or the Son without God the Father--the Trinity is indivisible. The author is not afraid to challenge conventional thinking about the Apostle Paul's apparent supremacy over the Apostles, and about the Apostle Paul's presentation of the role of women in the church. Indeed, one of the most inspiring revelations of the book is that it was a woman who was chosen to be the first evangelist, who first carried the news that "the Lord is risen!"
A lavishly illustrated retelling of the lives of eighteen women of the Hebrew Bible includes the stories of Deborah, the warrior prophetess; Tamar, the sacred prostitute; Esther, the savior queen; and others, all complemented by artwork by Chagall, Raphael, Blake, and other notable artists. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.
