"The author makes an eloquent plea for marine biodiversity conservation."—Library Journal "Harvell seems to channel the devotion that motivated the Blaschkas."—The Guardian Winner of the 2016 National Outdoor Book Award, Environment Category It started with a glass octopus. Dusty, broken, and all but forgotten, it caught Drew Harvell’s eye. Fashioned in intricate detail by the father-son glassmaking team of Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka, the octopus belonged to a menagerie of unusual marine creatures that had been packed away for decades in a storage unit. More than 150 years earlier, the Blaschkas had been captivated by marine invertebrates and spun their likenesses into glass, documenting the life of oceans untouched by climate change and human impacts. Inspired by the Blaschkas’ uncanny replicas, Harvell set out in search of their living counterparts. In A Sea of Glass, she recounts this journey of a lifetime, taking readers along as she dives beneath the ocean's surface to a rarely seen world, revealing the surprising and unusual biology of some of the most ancient animals on the tree of life. On the way, we glimpse a century of change in our ocean ecosystems and learn which of the living matches for the Blaschkas’ creations are, indeed, as fragile as glass. Drew Harvell and the Blaschka menagerie are the subjects of the documentary Fragile Legacy, which won the Best Short Film award at the 2015 Blue Ocean Film Festival & Conservation Summit.

Old Mrs. Ellison doesn't have much longer to live, and her scheming son Cedric is counting the days until he inherits her fortune. But his plans are upset by the arrival of his niece Varvara, a beautiful and wild young woman from a remote Chinese region known as the 'Sea of Glass', a strange land where wars are fought with crossbows and 'highly damaging curses' and where death may come at any moment in the form of a venomous barking spider. With the aid of a love-struck law student and a bibulous butler, Varvara aims to thwart the wiles of her evil uncle-but events take an unexpected and fatal turn in this unusual story, which is by turns hilarious and macabre. An exquisite blend of comedy, murder mystery, and surreal fantasy, Dennis Parry's masterpiece "Sea of Glass" (1955) was published to near-universal acclaim and has counted Edward Gorey among its admirers, but sank into an undeserved obscurity following Parry's untimely death a month after publication. This edition features a new introduction by Simon Stern. Parry's novel of possession from beyond the grave, "The Survivor" (1940), is also available from Valancourt. 'Amazingly original and brilliant' - "Illustrated London News" 'How well Mr. Parry writes!' - "New Statesman" 'Preposterous, often wonderfully funny' - "The Guardian"

If the sky should become a sea of glass mingled with fire, will you be ready? The sea of glass mingled with fire is symbolic to the holiness of God in wrath. The apostle John according to his revelation envisiond within the spirit of his mind, while he was in the Spirit on the Lord's day (the day in which the ultimate wrath of God will be poured out into the earth by the seven angels having the seven last plagues of Almighty God.) God will pour out his final ultimate plagues on the world of the ungodly in this earth! John in his revelation notes these seven angels with these plagues. Then the apostle envision the people of God as it were, "Standing by (on in some translations) a sea of glass mingled with fire. They had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his mark, and over his image, and over the number of his name. John saw them holding harps which Almighty God had given them. These redeemed people of God sang the song of Moses, and of the Lamb. As the children of Israel was delived by supernatural means as they crossed the Red Sea on dry ground, they after crossing through the sea, stood by the shore of the red Sea, and saw the Egyptians dead bodies laid out on the shore, after God had poured out his ultimate wrath upon them and had at the same identical time shown his loving mercy on the Israelites, for God fought for them that day as Pharoah and his mighty army persued them into the sea to destroy them. When the children of Israel had gotton to the Red Sea, they found themselves in the midst of an impossible situation: their enemies were all around them and Pharaoh and his army were behind them. They cried out to Moses and to God to deliver them out of a horrific situation of certain death! Moses cried out to God, and God rebuked Moses and instructed him to utilize the rod which was in his hand: Moses instructed the children of Israel to "Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord!" The people of God today are in this same postion spiritually speaking: we are waiting for the supernatural deliverance of Almighty God at the seventh trump of God announcing the coming of our deliverer Jesus Christ: for the trumpet will sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise immortal spirit, and we shall be changed and "Caught Up" together with them in the clouds, "to meet the Lord in the air," and we will forever be with the Lord. In the revelation of the apostle John, he has been projected within the spirit of his mind, by Almighty God, to this future day, shortly ahead of us, wherein the apostle envisions the people of God in their ultimate victory! Jesus will return at the worst time in the history of mankind (WWIII) just prior to the seven angels' pouring out into the earth the seven "last" plagues of Almighty God: the mercy of God, the pureness of God, and the holiness of God is represented by the sea's glass mingled with fire, the fire representing God's wrath mixed also in the sea of glass! My friend, if the sky should become a sea of glass, will you be ready? Jesus have instructed the people of God to remain continually in the state of radiness, "Be ye ready for you know not the day or the hour your Lord will come." Will you be ready?

The Epistle of Jesus to the Church is a commentary on the book of Revelation that assumes Jesus was the author and John the reporter of the words and events described. Here one will not find an explanation of an anti-Roman message written by John in hidden codes and apocalyptic motifs to fool Roman authorities. John the apostle and prophet was the faithful scribe, who did not create the message but faithfully and accurately described all that he saw and heard. This commentary follows the principle that the Scriptures explain themselves, because the Revelation is a word from Jesus to his church--a word that is grounded in the Scriptures. The Epistle of Jesus to the Church has been written with teachers, students, and pastors in mind. The interpretation of the book of Revelation is thorough; difficult passages are addressed, and plausible answers are provided to the questions posed by in-depth study of the biblical book. This is a commentary for personal study or classroom instruction, one that may be confidently used to preach and teach the Revelation of Jesus to the church.
