There comes a time in your life when you step back and look at yourself. You admire your accomplishments, your triumphs, and your goals attained, and smile with the knowledge that you have reached a level of happiness you had set out for yourself. But then something happens and your world goes into chaos and life as you once knew it disappears into this black abyss and the only one who can see it is you. This book is a testament to a life I loved and without even knowing, changed before my very eyes. It is a compilation of a past life that collided with my present mind and heart and as a result, has brought me to where I am now. These narratives and poems speak a truth from the past to the present, in hopes that I may cleanse my pallet and start fresh, in a life where I am my own guide and master of my own dreams. This will be a life of new goals, accomplishments, and triumphs. I step into the next chapter of my life, a blank page ready to be written.

"This book is a critical review of the very popular Left Behind series, plus one of the books in the Left Behind: The Kids series, and the first book in a new series called Babylon Rising. The New Brothers Grimm examines the twelve volumes in the original series and one book each from the spin-off series, relating the story and the theological arguments of each book and then challenging those arguments. Ultimately, the author suggests that the theological premises set forth in the series are at best dubious and at worst theological snake oil."--BOOK JACKET.

Here Orkney witches raise storms and predict the outcome of battles, ghosts seek revenge and the Devil sits in the rafters of St Magnus Cathedral, taking notes! Using ancient tales told by the firesides of the Picts and Vikings, storyteller Tom Muir takes the reader on a magical journey where he reveals how the islands were created from the teeth of a monster, how a giant built lochs and hills in his greed for fertile land, and how the waves are controlled by the hand of a goddess.

George MacDonald occupied a major position in the intellectual life of his Victorian contemporaries. This volume brings together all eleven of his shorter fairy stories as well as his essay "The Fantastic Imagination". The subjects are those of traditional fantasy: good and wicked fairies, children embarking on elaborate quests, and journeys into unsettling dreamworlds. Within this familiar imaginative landscape, his children's stories were profoundly experimental, questioning the association of childhood with purity and innocence, and the need to separate fairy tale wonder from adult scepticism and disbelief.

Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow-White, Hänsel and Gretel, Little Red-Cap (Little Red Riding Hood), and Briar-Rose (Sleeping Beauty) are only a few of the more than two hundred enchanting characters included in this volume. The tales are presented just as Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm originally set them down: bold, primal, just frightening enough, and endlessly engaging.
