Congressman Robin Andrews faces stark choices: to save the world or to allow the obliteration of the human race. He discovers a Russian village totally wiped out by a disease of unknown origins. America also faces the destruction of a small town outside of Pittsburgh, the cause also unknown. Can the mindless genocide perpetrated by some unidentified agent be halted before the whole world perishes? Albert Kasdan, a brilliant scientist and twin brother of world-famous chess grand master Anton Pomerov, befriends Robin and shares his knowledge about a plague more deadly than any that had previously ravaged the world. Those with the Mark of Barabbas have a natural immunity to this plague, a divine judgment on the world for its sins. Only the rediscovery of a sacred water supply somewhere in the Holy Land can save the rest of the world. Jan Lipski, a young doctor and concentration camp inmate at Auschwitz, has been forced to work with Hans Hoffmann, an evil Nazi doctor involved in inhuman medical experiments. During the last days of the war Lipski helps a group of twin boys to escape certain death. Lipski also escapes with a sacred copy of The Thirteen Commandments; Hoffmann eludes capture on the last German U-boat. Andrews studies the Bible code and reads The Thirteen Commandments, trying to make sense of the plague that has now reached Pennsylvania. No one can explain what happened. While searching Kasdan's computer, Andrews at last receives what he believes to be a divine message. He travels to the Masada in Israel where he discovers the healing waters.

The first book of The Twelve Houses, Mystic & Rider, was hailed as “spellbinding” (Publishers Weekly), and introduced readers to the troubled land of Gillengaria. Now, national bestselling and award-winning author Sharon Shinn continues her epic tale, as a beautiful shapeshifter finds that intrigue and danger can be found even in the safest of havens… After joining an unlikely band of soldiers and sorcerers to rescue the regent Romar Brendan from a cabal of rebellious minor lords, the shiftling Kirra returns to her home of Danalustrous—and learns that her half-sister, Casserah, has been proclaimed heir to the land. Though Casserah is obligated to attend a circuit of social events held by the great Houses of Gillengaria, she obstinately refuses to go. So Kirra shapeshifts into her sister’s form and makes the rounds for her. In the royal city of Ghosenhall, she unexpectedly joins up with her steadfast compatriots from her previous adventures, and together they embark on a tour of the Twelve Houses acting as guardians for the enigmatic queen of Gillengaria and her alluring daughter. The motley group of mystics and warriors faces many dangers in their travels. But Kirra places herself willingly in peril when she falls in love with the irresistible—but already married—Lord Romar. Revealing her true identity to him, Kirra begins a tempestuous affair that places them both in mortal danger, and leads them both into the stronghold of the devious lords of the Thirteenth House… From the Paperback edition.

Perhaps the most critical issue for healthy, growing churches is member care or life together, in keeping with the biblical emphasis on allalon--"one another." Member care demands that believers be passionately concerned for one another's spiritual welfare and physical and social well-being. This mutual care may be expressed in different ways, but they are always to be directed to the needs of the members of the body of Christ. That is the approach taken by the author of this book, which focuses on what may be construed as a negative subject--discipline. The hope is that a careful reading will reveal that Christian discipline, seen holistically, may be a most rewarding ministry, one that brings many benefits to healthy, growing churches as it nurtures loving relationships among people who care enough to speak the truth with love, as Jesus did.

Me? An alcoholic? No—how could I be? I’m a teacher, a doctor’s daughter, and an Academic All-American. An alcoholic? No way! Or so I thought. I went from a school fishing trip to the inside of a jail cell within three hours. I went from respected high school teacher to an impaired driver. “I am an alcoholic.” That was the hardest sentence for me to believe. To admit and become aware of being different than others—abnormal, looked down upon by society—was the most humbling and rewarding experience of my life. I found the strength and the power of my God-Within to overcome and conquer this crippling and deadly disease. My story is about my personal struggle over the past year. Acknowledging that alcoholism does not discriminate regarding who it captures and tries to destroy, I used certain spiritual principles and guidelines to overcome its power. This past year has been a struggle, but I am grateful for my disease and the truth that it has taught me to finally confront the monster and release my imprisoned soul.
