Summary

In A. D. 70, the Roman commander Titus marched through Palestine, leveling the once beautiful city of Jerusalem. For Samah, a young Samaritan woman caught inside Titus's siege wall, it was the beginning of three years of suffering with other residents of the holy city. Now, though, having unwittingly saved the life of a dog belonging to a powerful Roman tribune, Samah finds herself bound for Rome as the dog owner's slave. Did Jehovah send this dog simply to help Samah reach an arrogant tribune with the truth of His Word? Or could there be more to their unusual relationship?

    Our world is mysterious and conspiratorial. Networking is key - people who exercise power accept that success depends upon who you know. Some of these networks are obvious and visible, while others are hidden. Criminals and fundamentalist cults are sinister - but some secret societies help and guard us.  
    There are wheels within wheels. Unsuspected power sources are interconnected. Concealed watchers and listeners monitor phones, emails, and the Internet. Knowledge is power - and secret knowledge is greater power. Masonry has many secrets. Signs, codes, ciphers, passwords, and symbols abound - for those who recognize their meanings.  
    Masons are prominent throughout the world today in academic circles, armed services, police, government, commerce and industry, finance, and medicine. What are their aims and how important is their influence? Researchers believe some of Masonry’s famous members have included Edward VIII, George VI, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, General Douglas MacArthur, Gene Autry, and Virgil Grisson

    The Last Relationship Book You Will Ever Need is about much more than the deception which occurs between couples. It explains why your relationship is most likely a fraud.

    In the beginning, the Lord of Beings created men and women, and in the form of commandments in one hundred thousand chapters laid down rules for regulating their existence with regard to Dharma, Artha, and Kama. Some of these commandments, namely those which treated of Dharma, were separately written by Swayambhu Manu; those that related to Artha were compiled by Brihaspati; and those that referred to Kama were expounded by Nandi, the follower of Mahadeva, in one thousand chapters.
    
    Now these 'Kama Sutra' (Aphorisms on Love), written by Nandi in one thousand chapters, were reproduced by Shvetaketu, the son of Uddvalaka, in an abbreviated form in five hundred chapters, and this work was again similarly reproduced in an abridged form, in one hundred and fifty chapters, by Babhravya, an inhabitant of the Punchala (South of Delhi) country. These one hundred and fifty chapters were then put together under seven heads or parts named severally--
    
    1st. Sadharana (general topics).2nd. Samprayogika (embraces, etc.).3rd. Kanya Samprayuktaka (union of males and females).4th. Bharyadhikarika (on one's own wife).5th. Paradika (on the wives of other people).6th. Vaisika (on courtesans).7th. Aupamishadika (on the arts of seduction, tonic medicines, etc.).Man, the period of whose life is one hundred years, should practise Dharma, Artha, and Kama at different times and in such a manner that they may harmonize together and not clash in any way. He should acquire learning in his childhood, in his youth and middle age he should attend to Artha and Kama, and in his old age he should perform Dharma, and thus seek to gain Moksha, i.e., release from further transmigration. Or, on account of the uncertainty of life, he may practise them at times when they are enjoined to be practised. But one thing is to be noted, he should lead the life of a religious student until he finishes his education.
