"Currently termed a "Graphic Novel" this book is a compilation of Jackson's former works, fully illustrated in pen and ink. Oddly enough half of the work deals with early Texas history, "Old Tejas," and the second part is set in contemporary settings, titled " Modern Times." It is nonetheless, a good example of the art, artistry, and genius of the author. Seven of the stories are Texas history and nine are set in moderm times." -- Borderland Books

The writing of Boris Mozhaev, available in English for the first time ever in this volume, stands out in terms of narrative style and bold sincerity amongst contemporary Russian writers already translated into English. His insight into Russian life, politics and society, and the rural community in particular, represents a unique voice among the great writers of the twentieth century, who fearlessly and, at great personal sacrifice, wrote what they knew to be the truth about everyday life in Russia. Mozhaev had to fight against Soviet censorship all his life and some of his works were suppressed for over twenty years before they were allowed to be published - always to great critical acclaim. When Mozhaev's story 'Lively' was published, shortly after Alexander Solzhenitsyn's famous story 'One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich', it was no less of a cause célèbre in Russian literary circles and society. Stylistically, he combines Chekhov's acute eye for detail, evident in his short stories with the wonderful humour and pathos of Gogol, expressed with a unique ear for rural wit and dialogue. Though the communist regime has collapsed and new leaders have emerged from the shadows, Mozhaev's stories still have a modern resonance and a chillingly poignant relevance, as those in power still conduct themselves with the same Soviet mindset and mentality as they did under the old regime. Mozhaev's writing, still regularly republished in Russia today, has not tarnished with time and it still bears its sharp, critical edge, as cutting as the day it was originally written. Through this volume of translations, Mozhaev is set to take his place amongst the great writers of contemporary Russia accessible to the English-speaking reader. The translator has provided a wealth of background information and copious notes to help the reader better to understand the satire and enjoy the stories.

This journey was a continual walk of faith. I had believed in God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit even as a child. I had always prayed to God, asking to know him in a greater measure. However, trust in man had always been an issue for me after years of being hurt. Because of that distrust and insecurity, my heart had become hardened. I thought I did not need anyone—except God. My own life seemed to always be inferior and my last priority when compared to others. When I first discovered the lump, it was small. However, a few months later, it was massive. It was then I knew I could not fight this battle alone. During this journey, I would fight many battles with an enemy who was fighting to destroy me. There was a war within myself, trying to figure things out and spiritually what I believed the Bible said. I found out I was not alone. For when the enemy sought to destroy me, God had a better plan.

Cathy Suitor Riley decided to write this book during her treatments for bi-lateral breast cancer. It seemed to help to put her experiences on paper and she was hoping that her story would inspire and strengthen anyone that was going through any type of trial, not just breast cancer. It is obvious throughout this book that God was ever present during her journey and carried her when she couldn't carry herself. The faith that Cathy was taught during her childhood from the two Christian parents she was blessed with is what made all the difference in her life. She knows that without those teachings and lessons in faith she may have given up from the very first day of her diagnosis. Cathy had always said she didn't see how any woman could go through breast cancer because she would have to give up her hair and breasts, the two main things that make a woman feel feminine. It is obvious now that the way a woman gets through this is from the strength given to her by God. Only God can carry any of us through the trials we will face in this life, and there will always be trials as long as we live on this earth. It is this authors hope that this book will give you strength, hope, faith and the knowledge that your God is always with you and He is waiting for you to seek Him and depend on Him for everything. He is as close as our next breath and He is our very best friend. Always draw near to God and He will carry you through all things of this world.... May God bless you as you read and meditate on this book!

Volume 54 Sermons 3073-3124 Charles Spurgeon (19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892) is one of the church’s most famous preachers and Christianity’s foremost prolific writers. Called the “Prince of Preachers,” he was one of England's most notable ministers for most of the second half of the nineteenth century, and he still remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations today. His sermons have spread all over the world, and his many printed works have been cherished classics for decades. In his lifetime, Spurgeon preached to more than 10 million people, often up to ten times each week. He was the pastor of the congregation of the New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle) in London for 38 years. He was an inexhaustible author of various kinds of works including sermons, commentaries, an autobiography, as well as books on prayer, devotionals, magazines, poetry, hymns and more. Spurgeon was known to produce powerful sermons of penetrating thought and divine inspiration, and his oratory and writing skills held his audiences spellbound. Many Christians have discovered Spurgeon's messages to be among the best in Christian literature. Edward Walford wrote in Old and New London: Volume 6 (1878) quoting an article from the Times regarding one of Spurgeon’s meetings at Surrey: “Fancy a congregation consisting of 10,000 souls, streaming into the hall, mounting the galleries, humming, buzzing, and swarming—a mighty hive of bees—eager to secure at first the best places, and, at last, any place at all. After waiting more than half an hour—for if you wish to have a seat you must be there at least that space of time in advance—Mr. Spurgeon ascended his tribune. To the hum, and rush, and trampling of men, succeeded a low, concentrated thrill and murmur of devotion, which seemed to run at once, like an electric current, through the breast of every one present, and by this magnetic chain the preacher held us fast bound for about two hours. It is not my purpose to give a summary of his discourse. It is enough to say of his voice, that its power and volume are sufficient to reach every one in that vast assembly; of his language, that it is neither high-flown nor homely; of his style, that it is at times familiar, at times declamatory, but always happy, and often eloquent; of his doctrine, that neither the 'Calvinist' nor the 'Baptist' appears in the forefront of the battle which is waged by Mr. Spurgeon with relentless animosity, and with Gospel weapons, against irreligion, cant, hypocrisy, pride, and those secret bosom-sins which so easily beset a man in daily life; and to sum up all in a word, it is enough to say of the man himself, that he impresses you with a perfect conviction of his sincerity.” More than a hundred years after his death, Charles Spurgeon’s legacy continues to effectively inspire the church around the world. For this reason, Delmarva Publications has chosen to publish the complete works of Charles Spurgeon.
