    When Heaven Intervenes in the World of Men 
    (Author's Narration) 
    A prophetic voice for our age, A LeRoy crafts magical tales steeped in Biblical themes. The books in this collection combine otherworldly visions, leaps through time and space, and face-to-face encounters with the Almighty Himself. 
    But those encounters are made possible only by the loving interventions of Jesus, embodying his role as Friend and Intercessor before the throne of God. If you love the imaginings of C.S. Lewis, these stories will call to your heart. 
    1. The Christmas Tree 
    A tree is torn from his forest home and all that he loves. All seems lost, until a little boy takes up his cause. 
    In the words of one reviewer, this story "packs more punch than 12 volumes of theological discourse" as LeRoy combines the traditional Christmas story with themes of death and resurrection, otherworldly revelation, and courage led by divine calling. 
    2. The Prince's Oath 
    In this traditional Afghan tale, love will undergo many trials with God's help, even if it comes in the form of a cheeky little mouse! 
    3. Obama's Dream 
    About to hand over the keys of empire to Donald Trump, Obama's dreams are troubled. But Heaven intervenes with two great angels sent to redeem him. That's if they can overcome Satan's campaign of accusation! 
    “Profound tales of hope that demand you listen to their wisdom.“ 
    Andrea L. Stoeckel, Rockinrev Review 
    "I recommend the audio adaptations read by the very talented author and actor, Abdiel LeRoy." 
    William Mortensen Vaughan 
    "LeRoy has an active and practical understanding of the Christian Faith, and he is a gifted writer of parables that illustrate this."

    “A strong collection showing a highly skilled poet on top of her craft, using language and imagery in a sensitive but candid way.” —Brian McCabe  Vividly evoking the landscape of Scotland, particularly the brooding presences of the Scottish islands and Sutherland, these poems also touch on personal love and loss—combining nature with human themes in a collection that is both intimate and celebratory. Presented in English and Gaelic, the poems build on Meg Bateman’s established flair for uniting intense emotion and feeling with a classic, restrained control and structure that harkens back to Gaelic song-poetry and the beauty in a poem’s inevitability. “The poems have the strength and simplicity of art made for a community rather than an elite, though they are far from artless.” —The Guardian “The end result of this beautifully constructed and paced collection is a universal evocation of commonalities fused by human consideration . . . The title Transparencies hints at ephemeral moments caught. The poet suggests she aspires to a ‘palimpsest’ of emotions recalled and now renewed upon the page. She succeeds.” —The Herald  “Meg Bateman’s embrace of Gaelic has awakened her poetry to a noble passionate candor rare in today’s over-ironical English.” —Les Murray

    This “urgent, epic” poem exploring the history of Europe “encourages both lucidity and humility, to try and save what beauty is left in the world” (Les Echos, FR). 
     
    “For some time now, Europe seems to have forgotten it is the daughter of epics and utopia. It has been drained by its inability to remind its citizens of this. Too distant, disembodied, the concept often arouses nothing more than disillusioned boredom. And yet, the history of Europe is one of constant upheaval. So much fire and death; inventions and art, too. Literature, perhaps, can remind us of this: that the European history is one of muscle, vigour, passion, anger and joy.”—Laurent Gaude, from the introduction 
     
    In Our Europe, Prix Goncourt-winning author Laurent Gaude makes an impassioned plea for Europeans to remember their history and heritage. From the industrial revolution through two world wars and to the birth of the European Union, Our Europe sets in free verse the story of 150 years of growth, confrontation, hope, defeat and passion. It is both “an Iliad for our times” and a heartfelt appeal for a Europe that celebrates difference, solidarity, and freedom (L’Echo de Bruxelles, FR).

    This is a Century for the history books.  The Chinese curse of living in interesting times could not be more suited. 
     
    A small island continued its expansion across the globe bringing both good and evil in its march. Empires clashed. Revolution shook many. The Industrial Age was upon us. 
     
    Poets spoke up against slavery bringing social and political pressure upon an abominable horror. It was also the Age of the Romantics; Shelley, Keats, Byron lyrically rapture.  Tennyson, Arnold, Browning rode a century of sweeping change of dynamism and great verse.
