Arguably the oldest book in the Bible, the book of Job has a surprising amount to say about some of the newest scientific discoveries and controversies. Far from a book that is just about suffering, Job is filled with rich insight into both ancient and modern questions about the formation of the world the difference between animals and humans cosmology dinosaurs and the fossil record how to care for creation and more With careful consideration and exegesis, internationally known astrophysicist and Christian apologist Hugh Ross adds yet another compelling argument to the case for the veracity of the biblical commentary on the history of the universe, Earth, life, and humanity. Hidden Treasures in the Book of Job shows that the Bible is an accurate predictor of scientific discoveries and a trustworthy source of scientific information, and that both the book of Scripture and the book of nature are consistent both internally and externally.
Casual and conversational, Hidden Treasures presents the Universal Laws of Abundance from a spiritual perspective. These ideas are astonishing; and you'll feel empowered as they comfort, encourage, and enlighten you on your journey to financial deliverance, even prosperity.While the author learned these principles in a secular arena through more than a decade of study and successful application, she now hopes to bring the principles to God-fearing people everywhere. How often have we been promised, "Ask and ye shall receive?" The problem is we don?t really believe it. Why? Because, so often it just doesn?t happen. So how does one develop the kind of faith required to see miracles in his/her financial life?"There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated?and when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated" (Doctrine and Covenants 130:20-21). So if you've ever wondered: "If the 'righteous shall prosper,' why am I so broke?" or, "Do I 'set my heart upon riches,' or just resign myself to the smothering prison of debt and the stain of poor credit?" ...then this book is for you.The answers to these questions (and many more) are the very answers which led Leslie and her husband to finally escape their own financial bondage, AND develop a closer relationship with God through the process. While the author is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the ideas and applications of scriptures are solely her own and do not necessarily represent the beliefs or doctrines of any particular denomination. In a compelling way, she brings hope to individuals in strained relationships, mothers who want to come home from work, and fathers who want to spend more time with their family. Hidden Treasures brilliantly delivers a profound message of hope for all who believe there is a God.

The tale begins over three-hundred years ago, when the Fair People—the goblins, fairies, dragons, and other fabled and fantastic creatures of a dozen lands—fled the Old World for the New, seeking haven from the ways of Man. With them came their precious jewels: diamonds, rubies, emeralds, pearls... But then the Fair People vanished, taking with them their twelve fabulous treasures. And they remained hidden until now... Across North America, these twelve treasures, over ten-thousand dollars in precious jewels, are buried. The key to finding each can be found within the twelve full color paintings and verses of The Secret. Yet The Secret is much more than that. At long last, you can learn not only the whereabouts of the Fair People's treasure, but also the modern forms and hiding places of their descendants: the Toll Trolls, Maitre D'eamons, Elf Alphas, Tupperwerewolves, Freudian Sylphs, Culture Vultures, West Ghosts and other delightful creatures in the world around us. The Secret is a field guide to them all. Many "armchair treasure hunt" books have been published over the years, most notably Masquerade (1979) by British artist Kit Williams. Masquerade promised a jewel-encrusted golden hare to the first person to unravel the riddle that Williams cleverly hid in his art. In 1982, while everyone in Britain was still madly digging up hedgerows and pastures in search of the golden hare, The Secret: A Treasure Hunt was published in America. The previous year, author and publisher Byron Preiss had traveled to 12 locations in the continental U.S. (and possibly Canada) to secretly bury a dozen ceramic casques. Each casque contained a small key that could be redeemed for one of 12 jewels Preiss kept in a safe deposit box in New York. The key to finding the casques was to match one of 12 paintings to one of 12 poetic verses, solve the resulting riddle, and start digging. Since 1982, only two of the 12 casques have been recovered. The first was located in Grant Park, Chicago, in 1984 by a group of students. The second was unearthed in 2004 in Cleveland by two members of the Quest4Treasure forum. Preiss was killed in an auto accident in the summer of 2005, but the hunt for his casques continues.
This is the story of Monty Python, one the most popular and influential forces in modern comedy--and of their TV show--told in words and images. This celebratory book includes 22 removable facsimiles of rare memorabilia from their official archives, including hand-scribbled scripts, cue sheets, character lists, posters, and animation artwork. Written with active input from the Pythons themselves, the book recounts the adventures of all six members and their TV show, from early days in the Cambridge Footlights through early appearances on the BBC, global stardom, the inevitable fights, and their triumphant reunions.
This story of three women muddling through the CHAOS (can't have anyone over syndrome) of being mothers, students, employees, and wives is filled with treasures that allow magical things to happen along the way, provided the women follow the simple instructions of the FlyLady.

For those who have never heard of the Lost Adams Diggings, this book will introduce you to a story that is almost beyond belief. We would not have believed it ourselves had it not been for the overwhelming evidence we found. This story not only actually happened, but it took place in 1863, in the wild and rugged Black Range of New Mexico. For those of you who know the story well, you are in for a surprise.The Black Range, once referred to as "The Devil Mountains" by the Spanish had long hidden this lost gold mine from the outside world, along with other dark secrets, for well over a century. When Larry Ditzer and I first began searching some of the higher elevations of New Mexico's wild and rugged Black Range for an old Spanish cannon, once seen there by cowboy Walt Nichols in the 1950s, we sure never dreamed it would eventually lead us to the location of the famous Lost Adams Diggings. The location of the Lost Adams Diggings is in one of the roughest and most treacherous places to get around in the Black Range we had ever been.

A stereogram is a two-dimensional image that, when viewed properly, creates a stunning, almost magical impression of depth. Objects seem to float or to pop out of patterns. And these complex and sophisticated designs, produced by two of the most famous stereogram creators in the world, are state of the art. They’re simply among the most beautiful and amazing available today, combining different types of effects in a single picture. Sometimes, the trick to seeing the stereographic vision won’t be instantly obvious; you might need to stare at the picture for a while, adjust your gaze, or look slightly beyond the page before everything falls in line. The results are worth it--and once you’ve learned the technique, a whole world of art and spectacle will be yours.
