**Revised 2012 Edition** In the year 28 A.D. the people of Frisia, a previously loyal province, were suffering under the oppression of the Roman magistrate, a former Centurion named Olennius. So blinded by greed had he become, that he taxed the populous well beyond their means to produce. Now impoverished and risking starvation, the Frisians did the unspeakable and sought open rebellion as their only means of survival. The Emperor Tiberius, now living in self-imposed isolation on the isle of Capri, is deeply troubled upon hearing that such a staunchly loyal province would seek to throw off the rule of Rome. Nevertheless, he orders the mobilization of the Army of the Rhine to suppress the Frisians back into docile submission, never knowing the real reason as to the origin of the rebellion. As the Twentieth Legion marches north into Frisia on its first major campaign in eight years, Centurion Artorius finds himself facing his first major battle since taking over his Century. Years of relative peace, combined with the mass discharges of many of his veteran soldiers, have left the ranks filled with a number of young and inexperienced legionaries. For over a third of his men this will be their first action. The Frisians, in their desperation, know that they face death either by starvation in peace or slaughter on the battlefield. For Artorius and his legionaries the crucible of war will end in heartbreak; for only after the devastation of battle does the truth arise.

The Chief Centurion is an action packed novel about a First Century Roman Centurion named Claudius Lysias who makes his living in one of the hardest professions in the history of the world, that of a Roman soldier. You will march with him as he joins the Roman Army and does his basic training in Jerusalem before being posted to his first assignment in the remote village of Capernaum on the Sea of Galilee. There he comes in contact with the individual who will divide history between BC and AD, Jesus of Nazareth. Next you will travel with him as he sails to Gaul (modern day France), rises to the rank of centurion, and leads his men into battle against the Celts when Rome invades Britain in AD 43. He serves in the Second Legion Augusta, commanded by the future Emperor Vespasian and participates in all the major battles of that illustrious legion. Finally, you will travel with him back to Jerusalem in the twilight of his army career to become the Chief Centurion of the Fortress Antonia. There he falls in love with a beautiful woman, puts down a rebellion led by "The Egyptian," and is called upon to rescue the Apostle Paul from an angry mob. His life will never be the same! You will feel the weight of the armor and the sweat pouring off his body as he undergoes the rigors of Roman Army training and the daily grind of a soldier as he marches over the dusty hills of Judea. You will go with him into battle against Germans, Britons, and Jews as he fights those enemies of Rome. You will grieve with him as his only real friend in life dies in battle and his wife and children are killed by a plague. Finally, in the twilight of his army career, you will watch him as he falls in love again and tries to learn just what it means to be a Christian in first century Judea. The book contains real people in history that we know about from the Bible and the writers of ancient history such as Josephus, and Tacitus. Men like Pontius Pilate, Titus Vespasian, Procurator Felix, and the Apostle Paul. These men come alive and will leap off the pages as you follow Centurion Lysias from one adventure to another.

An accidental discovery of a horribly devastating weapon. A tempting promise of revenge made to a street-wise criminal for the accidental death of his father. A series of random, unexplainable murders. These seemingly isolated events bring together a tired lawyer turned private investigator, a grieving school teacher, a young FBI field agent and her mentor, and a patient recently escaped from a psychiatric hospital, in a struggle against an accelerating, corrupting evil. In a perfect world, everyone would receive exactly what they deserve, and no one need ask why God allows evil. Here They Be Monsters weaves through a less than perfect world, where innocence is no defense to tragedy, and where virtue is handicapped in the struggle against violence and malevolence. The characters realize, along with the reader, that the real monsters are all around us, and perhaps even deep inside and within us.

Janette Oke has dreamed for years of retelling a story in a biblical time frame from a female protagonist's perspective, and Davis Bunn is elated to be working with her again on this sweeping saga of the dramatic events surrounding the birth of Christianity...and the very personal story of Leah, a young Jewess of mixed heritage trapped in a vortex of competing political agendas and private trauma. Caught up in the maelstrom following the death of an obscure rabbi in the Roman backwater of first-century Palestine, Leah finds herself also engulfed in her own turmoil--facing the prospect of an arranged marriage to a Roman soldier, Alban, who seems to care for nothing but his own ambitions. Head of the garrison near Galilee, he has been assigned by Palestine's governor to ferret out the truth behind rumors of a political execution gone awry. Leah's mistress, the governor's wife, secretly commissions Leah also to discover what really has become of this man whose death--and missing body--is causing such furor. This epic drama is threaded with the tale of an unlikely romance and framed with dangers and betrayals from unexpected sources. At its core, The Centurion's Wife unfolds the testing of loyalties--between two young people whose inner searchings they cannot express, between their irreconcilable heritages, and ultimately between their humanity and the Divine they yearn to encounter.

It has been three years since the wars against Arminius and the Cherusci. Gaius Silius, Legate of the Twentieth Legion, is concerned that the barbarians-though shattered by the war-may be stirring once again. He also seeks to confirm the rumors regarding Arminius' death. What Silius does not realize is that there is a new threat to the Empire, but it does not come from beyond the frontier; it is coming from within, where a disenchanted nobleman looks to sow the seeds of rebellion in Gaul. Legionary Artorius has greatly matured during his five years in the legions. He has become stronger in mind; his body growing even more powerful. Like the rest of the Legion, he is unaware of the shadow growing well within the Empire's borders, where a disaffected nobleman seeks to betray the Emperor Tiberius. A shadow looms; one that looks to envelope the province of Gaul as well as the Rhine legions. The year is A.D. 20.

"Oh, how I love your law. Your statutes are my heritage for ever; they are the joy of my heart ..." Psalm 119:97 - 111 "At their best," writes Don Carson, "Christians have saturated themselves in the Word of God." The means by which God sanctifies men and women, setting them apart as his own people, is the Word of truth. Many people, however, would admit that they have allowed the pressures of life to crowd out serious and thoughtful reading of the Bible. Also, in a culture that has moved away from a Christian worldview, the Bible's unwavering proclamations and fantastic stories seem ever stranger. The big picture of the Bible is gradually fading from view. For the Love of God encourages us to face these challenges. Now, more than ever, the need to read the Bible and to grasp its relevance for our lives is critical. This companion volume to 'For the Love of God - Vol. 1', follows Robert Murray M'Cheyne's Bible-reading plan, taking you through the New Testament and Psalms twice and the Old Testament once. Don Carson has written thought-provoking comments and reflections to accompany one of each day's scriptural passages. And, most uniquely, he offers a perspective that places each reading into the larger framework of history and God's eternal plan, in order to deepen our understanding of his sovereignty and the unity and power of his Word.
