NATIONAL BESTSELLER • From the author of Into the Wild and Into Thin Air, This extraordinary work of investigative journalism takes readers inside America’s isolated Mormon Fundamentalist communities, where some 40,000 people still practice polygamy. Defying both civil authorities and the Mormon establishment in Salt Lake City, the renegade leaders of these Taliban-like theocracies are zealots who answer only to God. At the core of Krakauer’s book are brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a commandment from God to kill a blameless woman and her baby girl. Beginning with a meticulously researched account of this appalling double murder, Krakauer constructs a multi-layered, bone-chilling narrative of messianic delusion, polygamy, savage violence, and unyielding faith. Along the way he uncovers a shadowy offshoot of America’s fastest growing religion, and raises provocative questions about the nature of religious belief.

Award-winning author Guy Gavriel Kay evokes the dazzling Tang Dynasty of 8th-century China in an masterful story of honor and power. It begins simply. Shen Tai, son of an illustrious general serving the Emperor of Kitai, has spent two years honoring the memory of his late father by burying the bones of the dead from both armies at the site of one of his father's last great battles. In recognition of his labors and his filial piety, an unlikely source has sent him a dangerous gift: 250 Sardian horses. You give a man one of the famed Sardian horses to reward him greatly. You give him four or five to exalt him above his fellows, propel him towards rank, and earn him jealousy, possibly mortal jealousy. Two hundred and fifty is an unthinkable gift, a gift to overwhelm an emperor. Wisely, the gift comes with the stipulation that Tai must claim the horses in person. Otherwise he would probably be dead already...

Michael Chenault, award-winning investigative journalist with the New York Times, is rousted in the middle of the night by NYPD detectives and accused of the bizarre murder of a complete stranger. After clearing himself, Chenault finds that Martin Koplanski, the retired history professor he'd been accused of murdering, was likely killed for a mysterious Mormon relic long thought to be just a myth. Twenty-four hours later, Chenault receives an email with a photo of the recently murdered wife of Presidential candidate, Brockston Ratchford. She too appears to have been ritually killed in the exact manner as Koplanski, right down to having the same cryptic character scrawled in blood across her forehead. With way more than just a hunch to now go on, Chenault heads out to Salt Lake City, the site of the Ratchford murder investigation, to find out what, if any, connection there is between the murders. With the help of a beautiful young reporter he meets along the way, Chenault comes to learn the dark family secrets of a rising political star, along with the rather strange but true history of the Mormon church. As he pieces the story together of what appears to be an ever-growing conspiracy, Chenault is pursued by The Brothers, two murderous zealots who will stop at nothing to retrieve the Mormon relic Chenault is also trying to find. What Chenault eventually discovers is that what he's uncovered may not only affect the outcome of the next Presidential election, but decide the fate of an entire religion-if he can manage to stay alive. In the tradition of Raymond Khoury, Brad Meltzer, Dan Brown and Steve Berry, The Moroni Deception is a cleverly conceived, twisting tale of political and religious intrigue by a new master of the conspiracy thriller.

In its two-thousand-year history, the Catholic Church remains an unchanging yet developing entity. Since the church's infancy, Catholic theologians have referenced the "deposit of faith," which in early years referred to the written or orally revealed doctrines that formed the backbone of church teaching. Through the centuries, the definition came to be understood as the word of God, delivered through Jesus Christ and passed on to his apostles. Still, the deposit included both oral and written traditions and provided moral direction. The Second Vatican Council brought about many changes in the church, and once again, bishops and theologians addressed the deposit of faith. This invaluable concept came to be seen, not as mere dogma, but the expression of faith embodied in the words and deeds of Christ. The deposit is relevant to all elements of Catholic life: prayer, sacraments, and moral living. While the deposit has always addressed divine revelation, the post-Vatican II definition directs the faithful to think holistically. Hubert M. Sanders Jr.'s Deposit of Faith is intricate Catholic theology for the lay reader. It encourages Catholics to reach beyond dogma and written instructions to embrace the fullness of the Christian experience in all aspects of life.

The Ambassador of God provides exhaustive and in-depth answers to very difficult questions about our cosmic origin and the planet earth. Almost everything to do with the Sun, Moon, Stars, Water, Mars, Jupiter, Aliens... and most importantly - God About the book and author _____________________ God is real. And for the first time, experimental and observable science reveals his existence. Throughout history, many have argued the existence of God, yet discussions of the Divine have been limited to the realm of philosophy and religion. But what if nature could reveal its creator? And what if science could provide compelling evidences that we have never seen before? What if the identity of the creator behind the origin of our universe can be known for certain? What if... This is what The Ambassador of God, a ground breaking look at our cosmic origin, has provided. In this probing book, difficult questions are answered. As renowned scientists and thinkers challenge the biblical narratives for our cosmic origin, The Ambassador of God uncovers the mysteries that have been hidden from human eyes. Using compelling evidences from astronomy to investigate the underpinnings of the Bible, The Ambassador of God provides a 'cosmic objective certainty' for the existence of a universal Creator. Additionally, it unveils a well of exhaustive insights that eliminates ambiguities in our understanding. How is it possible that God is one and three distinct persons, but not three Gods? Why is the earth and the human body mostly water? Who created the sun, moon and stars? What about aliens and the other solar planets? What is the mystery and purpose behind human existence and other life forms on our planet earth? Why are we here and how did we first arrive on this planet? How do we come to understand divinity in the current scheme of scientific reasoning? How do we make peace with the grand designer behind it all? Readers seeking answers to these questions (and other similar questions) will find them here. They will not find dogma. Instead, they will embark on a journey-an experimental voyage through the lens of science that reveals the mind of God. In a "show" rather than "tell" fashion and a template that's more coherent than any prevailing secular science view, we shall find who God is! Who is the Author? Olumide Sanya is a contemporary poet and writer. Beside poetry and writing, Lumi, as he is affectionately known, helps others to achieve their dreams as a life coach. Unusually drawn to books between the ages of 4 - 9, Lumi neither enjoyed reading nor read books but spent his childhood years looking for abandoned tomes that he turned into a formidable collection. Despite being a non-reader, he realised the dream of becoming a writer in his tender years and for more than 12 years, he abandoned this dream. ...Until one day, God paid him a visit. But it didn't start there, it began with falling in love and writing poems about love and heartbreaks but that's another story for another year. "God has a sense of humor," says Lumi. "It's not hard to see that if you know my story-where I've been, where I'm at, and what God has planned for my tomorrow. What is most important to recognize is what God can do with a 'nobody' like me." The Ambassador of God, he notes, is not just about answers to large existential questions "It is also a road map that offers optimism and guidance in today's confused and increasingly complex modern world." You don't have to be a physics professor or a philosopher to understand Sanya's work. The Ambassador of God aims to open discussion and understanding at the broadest possible level. It is written for everyday people.

Let me begin by saying that our Christian experience must be translated from the four walls of the church and into our day to day lifestyle. It is in the heartbeat of our calling that we should translate the love of God as we pick it up from church and take it to our workplaces. My mandate through this book is to strategically position you into a place of influence in your nation of calling within the marketplace. For a long time the marketplace has remained the reserve of the children of this world. 'The children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light' (Luke 16:8). By failing to take our position of dominion in the marketplace, we have put our God to shame. The name of God has been profaned by many people in this world. Have you realized that anytime you mention that you are born again in your workplace, you encounter ridicule, rejection and even persecution? People have continued to shamelessly talk foul things concerning Christianity and this has to stop. God is saying that He is ready to sanctify His great name that has been profaned. God wants to do this through you. God desires that you prosper in all that you do within the marketplace, and this you must remember is for His purposes. He is not doing it for you to be proud. God is doing it "that they may see and know, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it" (Isaiah 41:20). God wants to introduce and establish His Kingdom in the marketplace through you. He will show Himself strong on your behalf for His purposes to be fulfilled in the earth. To many Christians, there has been and there remains to be a great misconception on the perception towards serving God. We see service in the full time ministry position as the only way to serve God. In everything we do, it is important to understand that it is because of the purposes of God that we were created. God is a wise investor and the gifting He invested in you is for the expansion of His Kingdom. God wants to show Himself strong through you. The Kingdom of God is within you and as such, you are supposed to carry it into your marketplaces. It has to manifest through you at your place of work, business and even in your relationships. You should remember that He chose you. You did not choose Him. To quite a number of Christians, business is secular work, whereas serving God in church is the only way to ascribe to ministry. This tendency is so prevalent in the church that many well meaning Christians do their business or work in offices without connecting it to ministry. That is why many Christians have this 'holier than thou' attitude when in church doing the things of God but when they get to their work stations they exhibit lucre luster performances, oblivious of the fact that we are commanded to work as unto God. Many Christians may be concerned with church work and even support it financially, but fail to see the connection between service at their work place and their Christian life. Some even think that if you really are serious about ministry, you ought to quit your job or give up your business in order to pursue a role in full time ministry. The object matter of this book is to bring every believer to the realization that we all were created for a purpose and that the faster we realize this and take up our positions the better. As Christians we are cut out and mandated to fulfill a specific assignment for God here on earth. Our mission is to honour God in our service by extending His will to all our activities.
