New York Times-bestselling author Mercedes Lackey's Herald Spy series, set in the beloved fantasy world of Valdemar Herald Mags, Valdemar’s first official Herald Spy, is well on his way to establishing a coterie of young informants, not only on the streets of Haven, but in the kitchens and Great Halls of the highborn and wealthy as well. The newly appointed King’s Own Herald, Amily, although still unsure of her own capability in that office, is doing fine work to support the efforts of Mags, her betrothed. She has even found a way to build an army of informants herself, a group of highly trained but impoverished young noblewomen groomed to serve the highborn ladies who live at Court, to be called “The Queens’s Handmaidens.” And King Kyril has come up with the grand plan of turning Mags and Amily’s wedding into a low-key diplomatic event that will simultaneously entertain everyone on the Hill and allow him to negotiate behind the scenes with all the attending ambassadors―something which had not been possible at his son Prince Sedric’s wedding. What could possibly go wrong? The answer, of course, is “everything.” For all is not well in the neighboring Kingdom of Menmellith. The new king is a child, and a pretender to the throne has raised a rebel army. And this army is―purportedly―being supplied with arms by Valdemar. The Menmellith Regency Council threatens war. With the help of a ragtag band of their unlikely associates, Mags and Amily will have to determine the real culprit, amass the evidence to convince the Council, and prevent a war nobody wants― ―and, somewhere along the way, get married.

If you long for something more, even if you don't know what that something is, then open this profound book. The Sacred Romance is the story of our lives; it is God's story. It is His invitation to experience His unfathomable love for us. Before long, you will find yourself eagerly turning the pages to find out what happens next. The Sacred Romance strikes a chord in us because more than in any other age, we have lost touch with our hearts. We have left that essential part of ourselves behind in the pursuit of efficiency, success, and even Christian service. From childhood on, something or Someone has called us on a journey of the heart. It is a journey full of intimacy, adventure, and beauty, but like any fairy tale it is also fraught with more than a little danger. To ignore this whispered call is to become one of the living dead who carry on their lives divorced from their most intimate selves, their heart. The Sacred Romance calls to us in our fondest memories, our greatest loves, our noblest achievements, even our deepest hurts. The reward is worth the risk.

By reading your Bible and studying God's precious Word, you can know the presence of Jesus abiding with you every moment of everyday. Whether you are a new Christian, a long-time believer, or just someone in search of a savior, author Jackie Burrell has created The King: Drawing Closer to the Heart of God to help encourage and guide you through this process.

You'll be prompted to look at your heart through the eyes of Christ. Through this perspective, you will come to a new awareness of his great love for you and of his willingness to help you succeed. Through the study of his Word, you'll realize that God is not distant and out of reach, and you're not just a tiny dot on his radar. You'll discover an intimate God who desires your company, longs to share his heart with you, and wants to be The King of your life.

Drawing Closer to the Father's Heart is a verse by verse journey through the Lord's Prayer. It seeks to broaden one's understanding of this beautifulScripture and to show its relevance in the 21st century. It is my hope that those who read it will come away with a deeper awareness of the meaning within the words as well as a clearer insight into the heart of the "One" who spoke them first so long ago. The text raises questions intended to motivate readers to examine their own beliefs and to test them based on the Word of God. Time spent studying God's Word can be such an adventure. It is themy prayer that those who come along on this journey will be blessed asI was in writing this book.

The many unique features have been revealed by meticulous dissection and present an excellent documentation. All in all, this study represents an up-to-date review of morphology of the coronary arteries.
