The Theater of His Glory
Author: Susan E. Schreiner
Publisher: Baker Publishing Group
The concept of creation as God's arena of order and action links themes to which John Calvin returns again and again in his works. This book advances some fresh, well-communicated ideas to historical theology and Calvinist studies as it investigates the Augustinian, medieval, and Reformation context of Calvin's thinking as well as opposing views that forged his polemic approach.
An influential social thinker, the late Richard Harvey Brown was professor of sociology at the University of Maryland and the author of Toward a Democratic Science: Scientific Narration and Civic Communication, published by Yale University Press.

Destined by blood to command the Morgravian army, Wyl Thirsk assumes his awesome responsibility while barely a teenager when his father meets an early death -- a duty that calls him to the royal palace of Stoneheart and into the company of the crown prince Celimus. Already a spiteful and cruel despot who delights in the suffering of others, Celimus forces his virtuous new general to bear witness to his depraved "entertainments." But a kindness to a condemned witch in her final agonizing hours earns young Thirsk a miraculous bequest, at the same time inflaming the wrath of his liege lord. With dread war looming in the north, Wyl must obey the treacherous dictates of Celimus and embark on a suicidal journey to the court of an ancient enemy -- armed with a strange and awesome secret that could prove both boon and curse. For unless he accepts Myrren's gift, it will surely destroy him . . . and the land he must defend as well.

Valiant women have always been a true source of strength throughout the history of the LDS Church. Their testimonies of the restored gospel, combined with acts of faith and devotion, have produced many miracles. While many of those experiences have been lost to history, many others were recorded for future generations to read, ponder, and apply in their own lives. Noted author and scholar Leon R. Hartshorn first published these stories in the early 1970s as a two-volume set. He has recently re-evaluated each story and has carefully selected the most outstanding stories for this volume. In this collection you will read about testimony-strengthening events, small miracles and heavenly assistance, both as the LDS Church was being established and also in recent times. This compilation will create admiration and appreciation by readers for the service and sacrifices given by the faithful women throughout Church history. It is also a wonderful reference tool for Family Home Evening or Church lessons.
The Puritan Hope
Author: Iain Hamish Murray
Publisher: Banner of Truth
Views on the future prospects of the Christian Church in history have differed drastically during the various periods of her life since Pentecost. In certain eras of darkness and chaos Christians have anticipated no future save that to be ushered in by the imminent Second Advent of Christ, while at other times conviction has gripped the Church that the gospel in which she believes is yet to be a world-transforming power. It was owing to the Puritans that the latter outlook became dominant in British Christianity for over two hundred years. How this occurred and how widespread was the influence of their hope is the subject of this volume. After tracing some of the salient features of the Puritan revival age, the author goes on to show how their witness reverberated through the succeeding centuries. - Jacket flap.
