(FAQ). If the Beatles wrote the soundtrack of the swinging '60s, then the Eagles did the same for the cynical '70s. The story of the Eagles is also the story of most artists of their time the drugs, the music, the excesses, and the piles of cash. But the Eagles took it to the limit. And in Don Henley and Glenn Frey they had two songwriters who intuitively understood and accurately portrayed the changing America they lived in. They perfected the California sound, shifted power from record company to artist, and pioneered album-oriented rock. Eagles songs of the period are as memorable as any ever written, and their most popular album, Hotel California , became a timeless record of '70s decadence. In The Eagles FAQ , music critic Andrew Vaughan brings an insider's view into the various chapters of the group's fascinating history. He shows how they blended the best folk, rock, and country sounds of the '60s into a worldwide soundtrack of the '70s while challenging the industry status quo with a new business model. The story of their rise, fall, and rebirth is all here their mega-selling smashes, their tensions and breakups, the band members' solo work, and their triumphant reunion and continued place at the top of the rock-and-roll tree.

Castle of the Eagles

Vincigliata Castle, a menacing medieval fortress set in the beautiful Tuscan hills, has become a very special prisoner of war camp on Benito Mussolini’s personal order. Within are some of the most senior officers of the Allied army, guarded by almost two hundred Italian soldiers and a vicious fascist commando who answers directly to “Il Duce” Mussolini himself. Their unbelievable escape, told by Mark Felton in Castle of the Eagles, is a little-known marvel of World War II. By March 1943, the plan is ready: this extraordinary assemblage of middle-aged POWs has crafted civilian clothes, forged identity papers, gathered rations, and even constructed dummies to place in their beds, all in preparation for the moment they step into the tunnel they have been digging for six months. How they got to this point and what happens after is a story that reads like fiction, supported by an eccentric cast of characters, but is nonetheless true to its core.

Even in their worst of seasons, the Philadelphia Eagles maintained their tradition of toughness. This toughness is exemplified by the greats who have put on the Eagles uniform-from legends like Chuck Bednarik and Steve Van Buren to modern-day heroes like Reggie White and Donovan McNabb.In Tales from the Eagles Sidelines, veteran football writer Gordon Forbes profiles the individuals who have thrilled Philadelphia fans since the team's inception in 1933 through its recent return to glory with McNabb at the helm. Forbes details how these men become legendary heroes, not only because of the championships they won but because of their hard-knocking style.They were relentless athletes playing in a city that has always appreciated hard, tough performers more than fancy steppers. And when the winter winds arrive and the Eagles are playing for something more than their paychecks, there is a wonderful love affair that spirals in the frosty air between the fans and their "iggles," as the team is called.Tales from the Eagles Sidelines recalls the great players and some of the not-so-great characters told in the form of flashbacks to another time. Some of the stories, like Vince Papale's Rocky-like adventures, are stirring to the soul. Others, like Fred Hill's courageous fight to save his leukemia-stricken daughter, sadden the mind. All of the individual tales, however, share a common bond. They are all about Eagles who wore the green, silver, and white and played in a very special city.

The Deliverance of the Elect in Lukan Eschatology

Although many scholars consider Luke 17:22-37 to be "the most important eschatological passage in Luke-Acts," few agree on the precise meaning of the enigmatic proverb which forms its conclusion (Luke 17:37). Generally, Jesus' logion is taken to convey a macabre image of impending judgement. However, this study offers fresh literary, redactional, and historical evidence to suggest that Luke recast Jesus' saying in order to describe something much more glorious--the deliverance of the elect. Examination of the material elsewhere in Luke-Acts corroborates Luke's expectation of an ethereal reunion, and suggests that this hope constitutes the most characteristic feature of Lukan eschatology.
