              For thirteen years, Rebecca Rice has suffocated under the social restraints of widowhood. Now it's 1895, and Rebecca is ready for change. She can't remember a time in her life when she hasn't done exactly what is expected of her--until now. Armed with a knowledge of nursing and f...aith healing that she learned from a visiting missionary group, Rebecca heads for the hill country of southeastern Oklahoma, Indian Territory, to share her new vocation. But the clannish folk of the hill country, reared and groomed in suspicion and superstition, resent Rebecca's presence. Faced with such human conflicts as hate and ignorance, Rebecca must also struggle with the tornados and floods nature sends her way. But her greatest adversary is the circuit-riding preacher, Zake Daniels, who fears Rebecca's teachings will threaten his hold on his flock.

              When US Navy Commander Roger Johnson happened upon a 1919 Parliamentary transcript dealing with the near sinking of a British man-of-war called the King James, he at first gave it only passing thought--until he came across the words to a sailors' ballad entitled Fifteen Men on a ...Dead Man's Chest, and a description of events that matched in every detail the novel Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. Dead Man's Chest is a classic pirate yarn that begins with Long John Silver's escape from the merchantman Hispaniola and culminates with the American Revolution more than a decade later. It describes the unholy alliance between this softhearted cutthroat, his nephew David Noble, and Captain John Paul Jones, as they work together to retrieve a king's ransom of Spanish gold and jewels from Dead Man's chest--the remainder of the treasure described in Stevenson's novel and the inspiration for the sailor's ballad of the same name.

              The World according to Narnia is a lively and engaging exploration of the many Christian themes in C. S. Lewis' widely-known and universally loved children's stories. C. S. Lewis wrote The Chronicles of Narnia with a Christian understanding of the world firmly in his mind. Thus, ...it is no surprise that at every turn, some character or incident reflects parts of the Christian story. From the Creation of Narnia in The Magician's Nephew, to The Last Battle, which presents the Christian view of heaven, Lewis intended these stories to say something new and imaginative about Christianity. Jonathan Rogers unfolds the parallels between Lewis' seven-book series and Christian theology, pointing out similarities between events in Narnia and in Scripture. Whether you're new to the Chronicles or you've just finished The Last Battle, this book will expand your understanding and appreciation for Lewis' beloved classics.

              What does a man know about love? This is the story of three very different men in love with the same woman. It is also the story of that woman, Francine Widmer: twenty-seven, beautiful, intelligent, resourceful, and insistent on running her own life. Suddenly, control of Francine...'s life is torn apart when she is raped. Finding the doctors and police indifferent to the outrage of rape, yet wanting revenge, Francine selects as her instrument the best criminal lawyer in the country. As the story expands in ever-widening circles, and each brilliantly rendered character brings his or her case to center stage, we come to realize how varied the shapes of love are, the secrets of its dark side, and why revenge is the universal human emotion most people prefer to hide. This is the triumphant story about the true source of all of life's difficult problems and exciting opportunities: other people.

              In her extraordinary work with dolphins, Patricia St.John broke new ground in opening little-known worlds, all in pursuit of what she fiercely believed in: learning the languages of those who have been unreachable. Using what she has discovered from her years of work with dolphin...s, St.John was able to break through to autistic children. Her story is a remarkable one. Said the author: When I left the pool that first day, I had no way of knowing I was taking the first steps toward breaking the barriers of dolphin-human communication...[or that] I would go on to find a way to use what I'd learned to improve the condition of other humans. At that first meeting, I had no idea how this information would enable me to eventually free autistic children to communicate with those who cared for them and about them.

              Islam Unveiled: Disturbing Questions about the World's Fastest Growing Faith (Audio CD / Audio)

              Robert Spencer probes the Qur'an and other sacred documents, as well as Islamic traditions and history and the present-day situtation of the Muslim world, to find out why the world's fastest growing faith tends to arouse extremism. A student of the religion for the last twenty ye...ars, Spencer brings a knowledgeable and critical sensibility to this brave, searching work. Cutting through the touchy and sentimental relativism of so much current discussion about the subject, he rigorously interrogates Islam. Were Osama bin Laden and his followers perverting Islam when they claimed to find sanction in the Qur'an for their attack against the United States? Does the explanation for the grim human rights record of Islamic countries lie in basic Muslim beliefs? Can Islam create successful secularized societies that will coexist peacefully with the liberal, multicultural world of the West? In this captivating, carefully researched book, Robert Spencer asks the hard questions about Islam and gives the hard answers, providing a profoundly needed antidote to the distortions that have swamped the media since the September 11 attacks. As noted observer of the Arab world David Pryce-Jones says in his introduction, In its own lively style, Islam Unveiled puts down a strong and significant marker to what lies ahead, as Islam and the rest of the world strive to come to terms.

              In the days when England and Spain struggled for the supremacy of the sea, a young lad sails with Sir Francis Drake, the daring sixteenth-century privateer, in this action-packed story based on true historical events. Drake's superb navigational skill enabled him to outrun or out...maneuver his incessant pursuers. He escaped so often and so ingeniously that he became legendary and was assumed by some to have supernatural powers--even the Spanish tended to have admiration rather than hatred in their hearts. As Drake sails the Pacific on his great voyage of circumnavigation, the heroes pass through a variety of exciting and perilous adventures.

              Fred Waitzkin became smitten with chess during the historic Fischer-Spassky championship in 1972. When Fischer disappeared from public view, Waitzkin's interest waned--until his own son, Josh, emerged as a chess prodigy. Searching for Bobby Fischer is the story of Fred Waitzkin a...nd his son, from the moment six-year-old Josh first sits down at a chessboard until he competes for the national championship. Drawn into the insular, international network of chess, they must also navigate the difficult waters of their own relationship. All the while, Waitzkin searches for the elusive Bobby Fischer, whose myth still dominates the chess world and profoundly affects Waitzkin's dreams for his son.
