<p>Many people believe in God and believe that God is everywhere, but they have yet to experience his presence. <strong>Delighting in God</strong> is the message Tozer intended to be the follow-up to 鈥楾he Knowledge of the Holy鈥? He demonstrates how the attributes of God鈥攖hose things God has revealed about himself鈥攁re a way to understand the Christian life of worship and service. We are here to serve and adore him, but we can only fulfill that role by acknowledging who he is, which is the essence of the Christian life and the source of all our fulfillment, joy, and comfort. To understand who we are, we need to understand who God is. His very character and nature are reflected through us. Unless we fully grasp who we are, we'll never become all God wants us to be.</p>

<b>The riveting true account of a grisly crime and the unprecedented three murder trials faced by Fort Bragg soldier Tim Hennis.</b><br /><br /> On Mother鈥檚 Day, 1985, the bodies of Kathryn Eastburn and her two young daughters were found in their Fayetteville, North Carolina, home. Katie, an air force captain鈥檚 wife, had been raped and stabbed to death. Kara and Erin鈥檚 throats had been slit. Their toddler sister, Jana, was the only survivor of a bloody killing spree that terrified a community still reeling from the conviction, six years prior, of Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald for the savage slayings of his pregnant wife and two daughters.<br /> 聽<br /> The Cumberland County Sheriff鈥檚 Department soon focused its investigation on US Army soldier Tim Hennis. Detectives and local prosecutors built their case on circumstantial evidence and a jury convicted Hennis and sentenced him to death. But his defense team refused to give up. Piece by piece, they discredited the state鈥檚 case, exposing false testimony, concealed evidence, and prosecutorial misconduct. At a second trial, Hennis was found not guilty and released from death row.<br /> 聽<br /> But an even more stunning turn of events was yet to come. Twenty-five years after the murders, the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation tested a crucial piece of DNA evidence from the crime scene. The shocking results led to an unprecedented third trial to determine Tim Hennis鈥檚 guilt or innocence.<br /> 聽<br /> From the initial discovery of the horrifying scene at 367 Summer Hill Road to the controversial change of jurisdiction that allowed Hennis to be prosecuted for an astonishing third time, author Scott Whisnant chronicles every development in this intricate, disturbing, and still-evolving case. Has the mystery of who killed Katie, Kara, and Erin Eastburn been solved beyond a reasonable doubt? Read <i>Innocent Victims </i>and decide for yourself.<br /> 聽

Considered the first book in the "Little Women" trilogy, Louisa May Alcott's Little Women explores the difficulties associated with gender roles in a Post-Civil War America by following the lives of four sisters on a journey out of adolescence<br /><br />"I read Little Women every time I break up with a guy. I've been turning to Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy for heartbreak solace since I was 13 and found out the guy I liked was interested in someone else. I'd go home and cry to my sisters, and then I'd read Louisa May Alcott. There's some profound comfort in that book for me 鈥?Jo becomes a writer and finds her heart in a most unexpected place. Above all, we learn what Jo has always known: No matter who the guy is or how great he is, no one loves you like your sisters." - Shonda Rhimes<br /><br />"When I read Alcott, I knew that these girls she was talking about were all white. But they were nice girls and I understood them. I felt like I was almost there with them in their living room and their kitchen." - Maya Angelou

Marcus Aurelius was born in Rome in 121 AD and would become its Emperor from 161 to 180. Considered by Machiavelli as the last of the good Emperors, Marcus Aurelius would become one of the most important of the Stoic philosophers. Educated in oratory, he would turn aside from rhetoric to the study of the Stoic philosophy, of which he was the last distinguished representative. The "Meditations," which he wrote in Greek, are among the most noteworthy expressions of this system, and exhibit it favorably on its practical side. The work is a series of twelve books that he intended for his own guidance and self-improvement, which picture with faithfulness the mind and character of this noblest of the Emperors. Simple in style and sincere in tone, they record for all time the height reached by pagan aspiration in its effort to solve the problem of conduct. In Marcus Aurelius鈥檚 practice of this philosophy along with his teaching he showed that 鈥渆ven in a palace life may be led well.鈥?This edition follows the highly-regarded translation of George Long and includes an introduction by Alice Zimmern.

Sternberg, along with her mother, two sisters, three brothers, a brother-in-law, a niece, an aunt and uncle, and her fianc茅 all entered into the hell of Auschwitz.<br /><br />She was the only one to leave alive again.<br /><br />At five o鈥檆lock on February 23, 1942, Nazi police, armed with rifles surrounded the hospital where Sternberg worked.<br /><br />Time had run out for the Jewish inhabitants of Breslau.<br /><br />There had been ten thousand Jewish inhabitants in the city prior to the rise of Nazis. By the end of the war only thirty-eight had escaped the gas chambers of the Nazi concentration camps. <br /><br />Sternberg鈥檚 book relates episode after episode of events where she should have been killed, but for whatever reason, she was spared.<br /><br />Much has been written of the horrific events that occurred in Nazi Germany, yet it is rare that you are able to hear of these stories written by survivors themselves. Sternberg鈥檚 book is therefore an invaluable source that uncovers the dark days that she spent in hell.<br /><br /><em>In the Hell of Auschwitz</em> is a fascinating book that provides insights into the worst horrors of the Second World War. Although at points it is a difficult read, it should be read by everyone so that such horrors will never be allowed to occur again.<br /><br />After the war Judith Sternberg Newman married Senek Newman, a fellow concentration camp survivor, and emigrated to the United States 1947. She began writing her account immediately after arriving in the United States. She worked as a nurse in Providence, Rhode Island, until her retirement. <em>In the Hell of Auschwitz</em> was first published in 1963. Newman passed away in 2008.<br />
