Beast In View: Margaret Millar
At 30, Helen Clarvoe is alone: Her only visitors are the staff at the hotel where she lives, and her only phone calls come from a stranger. Until that stranger, with a quiet, compelling voice, lures the aloof and financially secure Miss Clarvoe into a world of extortion, pornography, vengeance, madness, and murder. But who is the hunter and who is the victim? A gothic chiller which still feels incredibly modern, Beast in View is a true classic of the crime fiction genre. 1. Language: English.

I am firmly convinced that Islam is the single greatest challenge the Church will face before the return of Jesus, yet most are still either asleep or in denial. Mideast Beast completes and establishes the revolutionary argument introduced in Joel Richardson´s New York Times bestselling Islamic Antichrist, namely that the Antichrist will be a Muslim, whose empire will arise out of the Middle East. Whereas most students of the Bible have long held that some form of humanism or universalist religion would catapult the Antichrist to world power, Mideast Beast: The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist systematically proves from that the long awaited system of the Antichrist is even now before us and knocking at our door. Through a highly scholarly, theologically grounded, yet simple presentation, Richardson thoroughly corrects the objections of critics, establishing beyond a doubt, the Biblical case for an Islamic Antichrist. With large segments of the Christian missionary movement embracing a heretical method of outreach to Muslims known as ´´Chrislam´´ or ´´The Insider Movement´´, Mideast Beast cuts to the core of the matter, revealing the true nature and origins of Islam. After finishing Richardson´s work, you too will be convinced concerning the challenge of Islam to the Church. Some topics covered and questions answered: What about Psalm 83 & Isaiah 17?Is Gog of Magog from Russia, or somewhere else?What role does the nation of Turkey play?Answers to critics.What other scholars and commentators support this view?Will Antichrist really claim to be YHVH God Almighty?Why the Antichrist will not be a humanist.What´s comes next in the Middle East?What the Church must do now. 1.

Mixed martial arts is America´s fastest-growing sport - around the country, new gyms open their doors as enthusiastic viewers tune in to UFC matches. Although some dismiss it as brutal combat, its fighters are among the most dedicated athletes in any arena. But MMA also takes a heavy toll on the body, and it´s a rare fighter who can earn a living in the sport´s top ranks. Beast follows four high-level fighters at one of the sport´s elite gyms, Florida´s American Top Team. Doug Merlino had unprecedented access, training alongside the men for two years, traveling to their matches, and eating in their homes. Mirsad Bektic, a young Bosnian refugee who started in karate as a boy in Nebraska, dreams of stardom. Jeff Monson, a battered veteran at 41, is an outspoken, tattooed anarchist enjoying a bizarre burst of celebrity in Russia. Steve Mocco is a newcomer - a former Olympic wrestler from a close-knit, intellectual family. Finally there´s Daniel Straus, who, from a life short on opportunity, fights his way up to title contention. All will experience electrifying highs and career lows, and Merlino takes us along every step of the way while also examining the history, culture, business, and meaning of professional cage fighting. An audiobook for both the uninitiated and the hardcore fan, Beast offers a fascinating journey into an often misunderstood world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric Vale.

A fierce and yet tender tale of loyalty between man and beast, told from the point of view of a dog. The Call of the Wild is the story of a dog in the frozen Yukon told from his point of view. But this brilliantly told tale of a canine hero is in fact a graphic picture of the great gold rush to the Klondike in 1897. Brutal and fierce on one hand, it is also a story of tenderness and loyalty between man and beast and remains one of the best- selling books in American literary history. 1. Language: English.

This tale of a man who, when tinkering with magic, becomes changed into an ass is one of the most entertaining and remarkable stories from classic Latin literature. It is funny, bawdy and completely approachable - but also shows life from the point of view of a beast of burden in the Roman Empire of the second century CE. Lucius is an active young man enjoying life - and the favours of an attentive maid, one Fotis - when the temptation to experiment with a magic potion proves too great. Life is very different as a four-footed animal, and he goes from one drama to another, in danger of his life at one point, facing seduction at another. Within this account of these adventures, Apuleius (c124-c170 CE) places ribald stories which are more familiar through retellings by Boccaccio and Chaucer. But there are also passages of considerable literary beauty, particularly in the extended account of Cupid and Psyche. The Golden Ass, in this lively performance by Jonathan Keeble, is a delight from start to finish. Translation: Bohn (1853), revised for this production. 1. Language: English.

Striking parallels exist between the ´´Beast´´ of Revelation (the Antichrist) and the prophetic figure in Islam known as the Mahdi. Muslims view the Mahdi as a great savior who will lead a revolution and establish a global Islamic empire over the West. Both the Antichrist and the Mahdi are associated with the end-time and the Judgment. Both possess political, military, and religious power, and each heads up a one-world religion. How this affects Americans today is revealed in Youssef´s prophetic End Times and the Secret of the Mahdi. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob Souer.

Twisted landscapes, ominously swirling skies, creatures plucked from myth and nightmare. And women-passionate, strong, rendered with extraordinary anatomical detail, who captivate with their beauty and fierceness. Born of the heated imaginations of husband-and-wife artists Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell, the ´´Fantasy Calendar´´ for 2009 features thirteen all-new paintings that plunge the viewer into a world that is dark, dynamic, and mysterious, ruled by magic and roamed by fearsome beasts. A priestess sleeps among the tangled roots of a tree, oblivious to the menacing robot looming over her. Two sensuous maidens lull a colorful dragon into submission. A woman battles to stay astride her powerful white steed, her eyes steely and intense. Weaving the dramatic images together is ´´The Stones of Thay´mir,´´ an original story by C.J. Henderson.
