The Paris-Roubaix Classic. 273 kilometres of torment across the bone-crunching pavé of northern France. In 1976 the celebrated Danish film director, Jørgen Leth, embarked on an ambitious project to capture the spirit of this spectacular and cruel one-day race. The resulting film, A Sunday in Hell, has become the most admired cycling documentary of all time, and its revolutionary camera and sound techniques have forever changed the way the sport is viewed on screen. The film centres around legends including Eddie Merkx, Roger De Vlaeminck, Freddie Maertens and Francesco Moser, capturing not just their experiences from the saddle, but also the mood of a nation and its relationship with the most punishing of the Spring Classics. Sunday in Hell looks at the men, the method and the places behind the film. It observes the creativity of Leth and his collaborators, explores the lives of riders such as unlikely winner Marc Demeyer and revisits locations which have changed little to this day.

Using long-established historical records and contemporary journals, as well as recently released wartime documents, Bill McWilliams has created a brand-new minute-by-minute narrative of the Day That Will Live in Infamy. Told from the points of view of dozens of characters, from generals and admirals and politicians and diplomats down to deckhands and private soldiers and innocent civilians at all levels, this panoramic overview of one of the most traumatizing and shocking events in American history puts the reader in a position to understand the big picture of strategy and tactics, as well as the intimate details of what the chaos, violence, and presence of death felt like to people immersed in the surprise of an armed attack on American soil. December 7, 1941, was a turning point in the history of the United States, which had been teetering on a decision between isolationism and intervention. One might argue that every US military engagement since then has been affected by what happened when America learned that it could not stand by and watch war among strangers without potentially becoming involved—whether we wished to or not.

Does heaven exist? If so, what is it like? And how does one get in? Throughout history, painters, poets, philosophers, pastors, and many ordinary people have pondered these questions. Perhaps no other topic captures the popular imagination quite like heaven. Gary Scott Smith examines how Americans from the Puritans to the present have imagined heaven. He argues that whether Americans have perceived heaven as reality or fantasy, as God's home or a human invention, as a source of inspiration and comfort or an opiate that distracts from earthly life, or as a place of worship or a perpetual playground has varied largely according to the spirit of the age. In the colonial era, conceptions of heaven focused primarily on the glory of God. For the Victorians, heaven was a warm, comfortable home where people would live forever with their family and friends. Today, heaven is often less distinctively Christian and more of a celestial entertainment center or a paradise where everyone can reach his full potential. Drawing on an astounding array of sources, including works of art, music, sociology, psychology, folklore, liturgy, sermons, poetry, fiction, jokes, and devotional books, Smith paints a sweeping, provocative portrait of what Americans-from Jonathan Edwards to Mitch Albom-have thought about heaven.

The Badwater Ultramarathon is commonly referred to as ‘the toughest footrace on the planet.’ In 2003, defending champion Pam Reed, Dean Karnazes and 71 other runners took the ultimate challenge of running 135 miles in California from Badwater to the portals of Mount Whitney. Their journey would take them through the hostile environment of Death Valley and subject them to temperatures ranking among the highest ever recorded on earth. Twenty-five runners tell of their adventures in arguably the absolute toughest of ‘the toughest footrace on the planet’– the good, the bad and yes, the ugly – in this incredible and fascinating compilation. You are certain to gain a respect for the runners you will meet and perhaps an even greater respect for the area known as Death Valley. The runners – who experienced heat exhaustion, dehydration, nausea, blisters, hallucinations, and fatigue during the race – competed in temperatures literally ‘a few degrees from hell.’

Dirt Wakefield Roams The Badlands Of The West Near A Town Called Sunday. Providence Is The Catalyst For His Path Crossing Sarah Mcclanahan’S, Who Has Endured Death, Rape, Spousal Abuse, Cholera, Grief, And Loss Of Memory Along The Road That Brought Her To Sunday. The woman stooped over her precious bundle on the ground. The rider in the saddle crowded and taunted her with his horse. She moved sideways, drawing the rider in her direction instead of to the bundle. A small leg protruded and gave a kick in the air, letting him know she had a child in the brown sackcloth. Like a bird with her nest of young, she moved the threat away from her baby and onto herself. Two Roads to Sunday is the tale of a falsely-accused and wanted man named Dirt Wakefield. Easy with a gun, he leaves a wake of dead bounty hunters, a past wrought with grief, and a lack of forgiveness for himself. A curmudgeon, he roams the Badlands of the West in the 1860s near a town called Sunday. He travels light with only his canine companion, Dawg, and his horse, Dolly. Destiny and pure chance are the catalyst for his path crossing Sarah McClanahan’s, whose journey begins in Kentucky. She travels west and meets dire circumstances no woman should have to endure. Death, rape, spousal abuse, sickness, grief, and loss of memory all combine to bring Sarah’s trail to Sunday. That trail--Dirt’s trail--will change their tomorrows forever. I believe readers will identify with Dirt and Sarah as Dirt learns how to forgive himself and Sarah learns to move forward even when her past tries to suffocate her. “Love this novel! No cookie-cutter characters here. Each had their own individual personality. The story is full of angst and realism, and Dirt Wakefield is an unforgettable character.”-Ann Everett, Amazon best-selling author of Strong Verbs Strong Voice “ a suction pump ... pulling me in and not letting go. These authors ... speak in words that paint immediate mental images that seem to breathe their own lives.”-Tai Baker, author of The Cash Register Series, the Double Trouble Series and the Olivia Grace Series “The writing is fresh, the plotting deft and exciting, rich western with brilliantly drawn characters and excellent dialogue. Extraordinary writers who never let their readers down. Born storytellers and the writing is clean, crisp, and exemplary...”-Mike Jackson, Poet Extraordinaire “...grabbed hold of me and refused to let go. The vivid depiction of the harsh realities of surviving American badlands was only outdone by the connection I felt with the main players...a spellbinding read...”-Justin Robben, author of A White Road Tale series “... It's a tough draw to write in a genre ruled by the likes of Louis L’Amour, but these authors don't disappoint. It has all the accompaniments a western reader demands, and the authors have a flair for storytelling that lassos you into the adventure and doesn't let go. Just excellent.”-Ryan Maddux, author of Lost in Darkness

“I often said before starting, that I had no doubt I should frequently repent of the whole undertaking.” So wrote Charles Darwin aboard The Beagle, bound for the Galapagos Islands and what would arguably become the greatest and most controversial discovery in scientific history. But the theory of evolution did not spring full-blown from the head of Darwin. Since the dawn of humanity, priests, philosophers, and scientists have debated the origin and development of life on earth, and with modern science, that debate shifted into high gear. In this lively, deeply erudite work, Pulitzer Prize–winning science historian Edward J. Larson takes us on a guided tour of Darwin’s “dangerous idea,” from its theoretical antecedents in the early nineteenth century to the brilliant breakthroughs of Darwin and Wallace, to Watson and Crick’s stunning discovery of the DNA double helix, and to the triumphant neo-Darwinian synthesis and rising sociobiology today. Along the way, Larson expertly places the scientific upheaval of evolution in cultural perspective: the social and philosophical earthquake that was the French Revolution; the development, in England, of a laissez-faire capitalism in tune with a Darwinian ethos of “survival of the fittest”; the emergence of Social Darwinism and the dark science of eugenics against a backdrop of industrial revolution; the American Christian backlash against evolutionism that culminated in the famous Scopes trial; and on to today’s world, where religious fundamentalists litigate for the right to teach “creation science” alongside evolution in U.S. public schools, even as the theory itself continues to evolve in new and surprising directions. Throughout, Larson trains his spotlight on the lives and careers of the scientists, explorers, and eccentrics whose collaborations and competitions have driven the theory of evolution forward. Here are portraits of Cuvier, Lamarck, Darwin, Wallace, Haeckel, Galton, Huxley, Mendel, Morgan, Fisher, Dobzhansky, Watson and Crick, W. D. Hamilton, E. O. Wilson, and many others. Celebrated as one of mankind’s crowning scientific achievements and reviled as a threat to our deepest values, the theory of evolution has utterly transformed our view of life, religion, origins, and the theory itself, and remains controversial, especially in the United States (where 90% of adults do not subscribe to the full Darwinian vision). Replete with fresh material and new insights, Evolution will educate and inform while taking readers on a fascinating journey of discovery.

Most evangelical Christians believe that those people who are not saved before they die will be punished in hell forever. But is this what the Bible truly teaches? Do Christians need to rethink their understanding of hell? In the late twentieth century, a growing number of evangelical theologians, biblical scholars, and philosophers began to reject the traditional doctrine of eternal conscious torment in hell in favor of a minority theological perspective called conditional immortality. This view contends that the unsaved are resurrected to face divine judgment, just as Christians have always believed, but due to the fact that immortality is only given to those who are in Christ, the unsaved do not exist forever in hell. Instead, they face the punishment of the second death--an end to their conscious existence. This volume brings together excerpts from a variety of well-respected evangelical thinkers, including John Stott, John Wenham, and E. Earl Ellis, as they articulate the biblical, theological, and philosophical arguments for conditionalism. These readings will give thoughtful Christians strong evidence that there are indeed compelling reasons for rethinking hell.
