The Olivet Discourse sounds a bit stodgy to some—too scholarly for other people. Well, imagine if you had a private tutor (who also happened to be a best-selling author) who would sit down with you over a cup of coffee and explain Christ’s words in everyday language. That’s exactly what Ray Stedman has done, bringing the mysterious realm of end-times theology down-to-earth. In 13 chapters, you’ll explore the prophetic words of Matthew 24 and 25 in a whole new way.
Robert Fulghum's new book begins with a question we've all asked ourselves: "What on Earth have I done?" As Fulghum finds out, the answer is never easy and, almost always, surprising. For the last couple of years, Fulghum has been traveling the world - from Seattle to the Moab Desert to Crete - looking for a few fellow travelers interested in thinking along with him as he delights in the unexpected: trick-or-treating with your grandchildren dressed like a large rabbit, pots of daffodils blooming in mid-November, a view of the earth from outer space, the mysterious night sounds of the desert, every man's trip to a department store to buy socks, the raucous all-night long feast that is Easter in Greece, the trials and tribulations of plumbing problems and the friendship one can strike up with someone who doesn't share the same language. What on Earth Have I Done? is an armchair tour of everyday life as seen by Robert Fulghum, one of America's great essayists, a man who has two feet planted firmly on the earth, one eye on the heavens and, at times, a tongue planted firmly in his cheek. Fulghum writes to his fellow travelers, with a sometimes light heart, about the deep and vexing mysteries of being alive and says, "This is my way of bringing the small boat of my life within speaking distance of yours. Hello..."

Lightning Seeds is about formally acknowledging awareness within each and every one of us as we live our lives. It is about change and renewal. It is about intricately weaving feelings into your life. Helping to integrate, assimilate, and formalize feelings as the mainstream, where awareness is the norm, where spirituality is in the physical, not as something to be obtained through a misty veil at the end of a tunnel. It is a blueprint for change, a map, but not the territory. It is the nature of true reality, asking you what is your place therein. It is not about diluting the situations we may find ourselves in. The words are abstractions, a guide. As you open to any page, it is important to bear in mind what that page is making you aware of: a memory, a feeling, an experience, and emotions and attitudes that come with it. Do they still serve? See possibilities that change can bring, and with the purest intentions for your highest good, make a choice. It challenges the view of seeing your life as being linear. It unfolds different lines. As you read, you choose your own ebbs and flows to follow your own spiritual path. The resonant and common thread is that we all contain light and love and experience change. We simply cannot hope anymore that something will just happen; we have to be aware in our lives. We must all help ourselves. Sustain life from the inside out. We all have the knowledge, the means to ensure our survival by tapping into our soul, light, our lightning seeds.

Two heroines (one human and one alien) struggle to find happiness with the men of their dreams; Lightning Rider brings new meaning to the term “double-dating”! When Andie Brennan meets Jake Knight she thinks he could just be her soul mate. Only trouble is she’s already got a boyfriend–even if he is a manipulative control-freak–and Andie doesn’t do cheating. But before she can fully explore why the sound of Jake’s voice and his crooked smile make her feel happier than she’s been in years, death strikes in a searing instant, sizzling a few million neurons and arresting her heart. Andie wakes up in hospital. Her injuries are completely healed and her recovery is being touted as “miraculous”. But she can’t remember a damn thing about her past–not even her name–and there’s a voice inside her head claiming to be a Lightning Rider Elemental named Karylon. What’s truly miraculous is that voice is real. Andie is not insane; she’s hosting an alien. What neither Karylon nor Andie know is the future of the Lightning Rider elemental race is at stake, and the omniscient Keeper of Portents has no qualms about using elementals and humans to further its hidden agenda. How much will Karylon’s ex-lover Novik risk to be with her again? And who else is the Keeper willing to sacrifice?
