Pride and Prejudice ( A to Z Classics )

by Jane Austen

Pride And Prejudice, the story of Mrs. Bennet’s attempts to marry off her five daughters is one of the best-loved and most enduring classics in English literature. Excitement fizzes through the Bennet household at Longbourn in Hertfordshire when young, eligible Mr. Charles Bingley rents the fine house nearby. He may have sisters, but he also has male friends, and one of theseâ??the haughty, and even wealthier, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcyâ??irks the vivacious Elizabeth Bennet, the second of the Bennet girls. She annoys him. Which is how we know they must one day marry. The romantic clash between the opinionated Elizabeth and Darcy is a splendid rendition of civilized sparring. As the characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, Jane Austen’s radiantly caustic wit and keen observation sparkle.



The Holy Trinity: Book 1 (Christian Tenets 2)

by Lamb Books

Today, the feast of My Blood, I shall clarify a mystery for you. Say, « Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, » for it is about Us that I want to speak.

Look: God is light. This is the only thing that can still represent God without being antithetical to His spiritual Essence. The light exists, and yet it is incorporeal. You see it, but you cannot touch it. It exists. Our Trinity is light. An unbounded light. The Source of Itself, living by Itself, and acting in Itself.

Everything is threefold in Us; Forms, effects, and powers.
God is light. A vast, majestic, and peaceful light is given by the Father. An infinite circle which has embraced all Creation since the moment when « Let there be light » was said until forever and ever for God, who existed and will continue to embrace all that â?? in the final form, the eternal one, after the Judgment â?? will remain in Creation. He will embrace those who are eternal with Him in Heaven.
Within the eternal circle of the Father there is a second circle, begotten by the Father, working differently and yet not working in contrary fashion, for the Essence is one. It is the Son. His light, more vibrant, not only gives life to bodies, but gives Life to souls that had lost it, by means of his Sacrifice.
Within the second circle, produced by the two workings of the first circle, there is a third circle with even more vibrant, inflamed light. It is the Holy Spirit. He is the Love produced by the relations of the Father and the Son, the intermediary between the Two, and a consequence of the Two, the wonder of wonders.

‘Thought created the Word, and Thought and Word love one another. Love is the Paraclete. He acts upon your spirit, your soul, and your flesh. For He consecrates the whole temple of your person, created by the Father and redeemed by the Son, created in the image and likeness of the Triune God. A more concentrated Light, not because it is limited in comparison to the others, but because it is the spirit of the spirit of God, â?¦



Ninjas: History And How To Become One

Thе hiÑ?tоrÑ? оf thе ninjа аnd thе possibility of thе соnnесtiоn tо Chinа will be explored, with the аim of putting some hiÑ?tоriсаl fасtÑ? in Ñ?lасе tо fоrm a bеttеr Ñ?iсturе оf the соnnесtiоn between thе twо аnd bÑ? thе еnd Ñ?оu will hаvе come to understand whаt a ninjа is аnd mаÑ?bе, just whеrе he соmеÑ? from.

Bеfоrе diving intо the history оf the ninjа it muÑ?t firÑ?t bе еÑ?tаbliÑ?hеd just whаt a ninja or Ñ?hinоbi is, strange аÑ? this mаÑ? seem, mоÑ?t people uÑ?оn thе Ñ?lаnеt trulÑ? misunderstand the rеаlitÑ? оf these men оf JаÑ?аn аnd the thrее mоÑ?t fundаmеntаl miÑ?соnсеÑ?tiоnÑ? in thе study оr understanding оf the ninjа tоdаÑ?.

NinjutÑ?u iÑ? a Ñ?Ñ?есiаliÑ?еd hаnd tо hand соmbаt Ñ?Ñ?Ñ?tеm passed on in secret between thе ninja аnd wаÑ? kеÑ?t Ñ?есrеt frоm thе Ñ?аmurаi. The ninja were a “counter-culture”, born in the mountains to Ñ?еаÑ?аnt families’ whо wеrе fighting against the оÑ?Ñ?rеÑ?Ñ?iоn оf the samurai overlords аnd thuÑ? dеvеlоÑ?еd ninjutÑ?u аnd thаt ninjutÑ?u wаÑ? too underhanded fоr the Ñ?аmurаi tо uÑ?е. Thаt it iÑ? a ассеÑ?tеd fасt thаt thе ninjа wеrе fоundеd by ChinеÑ?е immigrаntÑ? in thе sixth аnd seventh сеnturÑ?, who were fleeing oppression in Chinа.

In understanding what it means to be a Ninja, we must first come to understand just what a “Ninja” is. And once we see that, based on the original Sino-Japanese kanji characters used to write the word, that being a Ninja is being a “person who is capable of enduring whatever the universe can throw at you,” then it only becomes a matter of developing the skills necessary to be able to do just that. Ninjа rеfеrÑ? tо the grоuÑ? of Ñ?rоfеÑ?Ñ?iоnаl Ñ?Ñ?iеÑ? whо flourished in thе Ñ?rе mоdеrn аgе in Japan.

A ninja is one who is an expert in different kinds of martial arts like the art of ninjutsu.
As mentioned earlier, ninjutsu is the art of teaching combat techniques, tactics, strategies, and martial arts helpful to win a war, Masaaki Hatsumi, the current generation headmaster of the Togakure-ryu of Ninjutsu and eight other traditional schools of Samurai and Ninja martial arts, and outlined in his book, “Ninjutsu: History and Tradition,” he describes the three aspects of the “enduring person,” the true definition of what it means to be a Ninja.

These three aspects are the:
Mi wo shinobu – the body that is developed, maintained, and trained to be able to endure
Kokoro wo shinobu – the mind that is tempered, broadened, and directed for perseverance, and the…
Shiki wo shinobu – vision, awareness, and realization that is focused internally and externally simultaneously for spiritual fortitude and the strength that comes from complete knowledge that is born of wisdom.

Each of these aspects must be trained and developed for the person to be complete and able to handle danger, stress, or challenges that arise, not just from physical combat, but from anything that the world might throw at you.



Ezra Taft Benson (Remembering Seven Prophets Book 4)

by Francis M. Gibbons

President Ezra Taft Benson (1899 to 1994) , the thirteenth President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was called as an Apostle in 1943, and served until 1985, when he became the President of the Church upon the death of President Spencer W. Kimball. From 1953 to 1961 he served as Secretary of Agriculture in the cabinet of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. President Benson would often pose this rhetorical question when faced with questions of importance in the administration of the Church: “What’s best for the Kingdom?” This question became a kind of touchstone by which he guided not only the Church but also his daily walk as a man and a disciple of Jesus Christ.
This book is the first part of a seven volume work entitled Remembering Seven Prophets, which are based upon the reminiscences of President Benson’s scribe and secretary, Francis M. Gibbons. Now in his ninety-fourth year, Brother Gibbons worked personally with seven Presidents of the Church and is the most prolific biographer of LDS Church Presidents in the history of the Church.
Included in this book are many unique stories, anecdotes and insights about President Ezra Taft Benson which are available nowhere else.

Reigning from 1894 to 1917, Nicholas II was the last emperor of Russia.

Hope: The Story of the St. Louis Jane Doe

by Bryan W. Alaspa

A True Crime story of 50 pages and 12,000 words

It’s one of the most baffling murder cases in St. Louis history. In February 1983, a headless body was discovered in the basement of an abandoned apartment building. It was one of the most horrific and brutal murders police detectives had ever seen. However, since the victim was a child, the police thought they would have an identity and find the murderer quickly.

They never did.

Author, and true crime fan, Bryan Alaspa, returns to this non-fiction genre for the first time in years to look at this case. In HOPE, he looks at the suspects, the detectives, the murder scene and presents the information available. Perhaps, just perhaps, this is the story which will inspire someone else to finally provide the evidence which will crack the case.

This is the story of a missing girl. A girl who has since been given the name HOPE.
