Summary

Over the last 500 years, the sixteenth-century French doctor, Michel de Nostradamus, and his obscure yet compelling prophecies, have cast a spell on generations of readers. Many interpreters of Nostradamus believed that New Year’s Day 2000 would see the end of the world. Does its peaceful passing expose Nostradamus as a charlatan, or has he simply been misunderstood? In this new millennium, with dramatic world events casting new scrutiny on his predictions, the time is ripe for a reassessment of the man and his myth. 
Nostradamus was a man destined to lead a double life. Born in 1503 to Jewish parents who had converted to Christianity, Nostradamus became skilled in the forbidden arts of astrology and the occult, and chose the life of a doctor to hide his shadow life from those religiously intolerant times. A Christian physician by day, and an underground Jewish astrologer and Pagan theurgist by night, he risked his life issuing a serialized book of 1,000 predictions on the future, published between 1555 and 1561. It became a bestseller and its purported successes in predicting events of his own time made Nostradamus the talk of the courts of Europe. He attracted both support and enmity from the most powerful people in France, and while the Queen of France bestowed honours, the Justices of the Inquisition cast a dark and threatening shadow. 
Celebrating the 500th anniversary of the birth of Nostradamus, John Hogue traces the life and legacy of the French prophet in fascinating and insightful detail, revealing much little-known and original material never before published in English. Nostradamus: A Life and Myth is the first full-bodied biography of one of the most famous and controversial historical figures of the last millennium. 
Estimated number of printed pages: 409 
“I have known John Hogue for fifteen years. Every year, he predicts on the program [Dreamland] and every year, he proves to be fireproof. He's accurate. Uncannily accurate.” 
—Whitley Strieber, author of Communion and The Coming Global Superstorm with Art Bell 
John Hogue is author of 700 articles and 40 published books (1,170,000 copies sold) spanning 20 languages. He has predicted the winner of every US Presidential Election since 1968, giving him a remarkable 12 and 0 batting average. Hogue is a world-renowned expert on the prophecies of Nostradamus and other prophetic traditions. He claims to focus on interpreting the world’s ancient-to-modern prophets and prophecies with fresh eyes, seeking to connect readers with the shared and collective visions of terror, wonder and revelation about the future in a conversational narrative style. Hogue says the future is a temporal echo of actions initiated today. He strives to take readers “back to the present” empowering them to create a better destiny through accessing the untapped potentials of free will and meditation.

    Englischer Natalie Collins looks forward to Friday night suppers at Levi and Mary Shetler’s house every week: delicious food, wonderful conversation with her Amish friends, and, best of all, the presence of Levi’s older brother Lucas. Natalie and Lucas have become best friends despite their different backgrounds. They share a love of books, and he is teaching her about God in a way that she can understand. 
    But the closer they become, the more opinions everyone seems to have. Levi and Mary, Lucas’s family, and even Natalie’s mother—whose own life is a mess at the moment—have concerns about their relationship.

    But when a terrifying accident happens, Natalie and Lucas are forced to confront their true feelings and decide if they can stay true to themselves and each other.

    The path of least resistance is seldom the path of greatest impact. This is a truth that the apostles knew intrinsically, but from which we, the modern church, seem to shy away. They boldly proclaimed the Gospel, in season and out of season. We want to avoid risk, avoid stepping on toes, avoid any bad publicity that might come with going out on a limb. But much like the first rockets to leave Earth's atmosphere, giant leaps forward in God's kingdom don't come without a big vision and a great big dose of risk.In Unstoppable Gospel, pastor Gregg Matte calls readers to take up the task of the early church and go change the world. He shows how using ordinary, everyday people has been God's plan from the beginning and how we all have a part in that plan. He shares many practical ways Christians can get involved in their churches and communities to take advantage of the countless opportunities God provides for us to make a lasting kingdom impact in our world.

    The word rûaḥ (commonly translated as breath, wind, spirit, or Spirit) occurs in the Old Testament 378 times--more frequently than torah, shalom, or Sabbath. In this volume, a popular Old Testament scholar, whose previous books have received wide acclaim, cracks open the challenging and provocative world of the Spirit in the Old Testament, offering readers cogent yet comprehensive insights. 
     
    Grounded in scholarship yet accessible and inviting, this book unlocks the world of the Spirit, plunging readers into an imaginative realm of fresh senses, sounds, and skills. The book gives readers the opportunity to recapture Israel's tenacious sense of the Spirit's energy as it was expressed by a series of vibrant verbs: blowing, breathing, coming, resting, passing, pouring, filling, cleansing, standing, and guiding. Readers will encounter in these pages all of the Old Testament expressions of the Spirit--passages that will challenge the conventional, confront the commonplace, and transport them to a world of wisdom, work, and wonder.
