Book Summary:

From Barbara W. Tuchman, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Guns of August, comes history through a wide-angle lens: a fascinating chronicle of Britain’s long relationship with Palestine and the Middle East, from the ancient world to the twentieth century. Historically, the British were drawn to the Holy Land for two major reasons: first, to translate the Bible into English and, later, to control the road to India and access to the oil of the Middle East. With the lucidity and vividness that characterize all her work, Barbara W. Tuchman follows these twin spiritual and imperial motives—the Bible and the sword—to their seemingly inevitable endpoint, when Britain conquered Palestine at the conclusion of World War I. At that moment, in a gesture of significance and solemnity, the Balfour Declaration of 1917 established a British-sponsored mandate for a national home for the Jewish people. Throughout this characteristically vivid account, Tuchman demonstrates that the seeds of conflict were planted in the Middle East long before the official founding of the modern state of Israel. Praise for Bible and Sword “Tuchman is a wise and witty writer, a shrewd observer with a lively command of high drama.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “In her métier as a narrative popular historical writer, Barbara Tuchman is supreme.”—Chicago Sun-Times

Book Summary:

Philip Jenkins delivers a fearless examination of the darkand violent verses of the Bible—and a call for us to read them anew in pursuitof a richer, more honest faith. From “one of America’s best scholars ofreligion” (The Economist), this daring exploration of the Scripture’smost difficult passages forces us to confront and accept the violence that wasas integral to the formulation of Christianity’s message as it was for manyother of the world’s religions, and shows us how a full understanding of theScripture will allow us to finally move towards a more peaceful, spiritualworld. Readers of Bart Ehrman’s God’s Problem,John Selby Spong’s The Sins of Scripture, andJenkins’s own The Jesus Wars, as well as every Christian eager to squarethe recurrent violence of the Scripture with Christianity’s enduring message ofpeace, will find these difficult questions explored in full in Laying Downthe Sword.

Book Summary:

Celebrated for bringing a personal touch to history in her Pulitzer Prize–winning epic The Guns of August and other classic books, Barbara W. Tuchman reflects on world events and the historian’s craft in these perceptive, essential essays. From thoughtful pieces on the historian’s role to striking insights into America’s past and present to trenchant observations on the international scene, Barbara W. Tuchman looks at history in a unique way and draws lessons from what she sees. Spanning more than four decades of writing in The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, Foreign Affairs, Harper’s, The Nation, and The Saturday Evening Post, Tuchman weighs in on a range of eclectic topics, from Israel and Mao Tse-tung to a Freudian reading of Woodrow Wilson. This is a splendid body of work, the story of a lifetime spent “practicing history.” Praise for Practicing History “Persuades and enthralls . . . I can think of no better primer for the nonexpert who wishes to learn history.”—Chicago Sun-Times “Provocative, consistent, and beautifully readable, an event not to be missed by history buffs.”—Baltimore Sun “A delight to read.”—The New York Times Book Review

Book Summary:

What is the origin of the Holy Bible? Who wrote it, and how was it preserved and translated? What does it have to say about the future of Planet Earth and what does it teach regarding your own personal and eternal future? Each day, throughout the world, people take a King James Bible in their hands and read. Countless millions have found solace in its pages. Therein we find not only the path to Eternal Life, but we find the strength to endure the lives we now lead. We find guidance. We find hope. We can turn to many ancient texts for the "Who, What, Where, When and How?" of history. Only The Bible answers the question, "Why?" In The Sword Of Truth, Dr. Mark Edward Cody explores the origin, preservation and message of The Holy Bible. As the world plunges into chaos, there is a growing interest in the ancient prophecies of The Bible and what it has to say about the dark days ahead. God's Word offers light to illuminate the path and to comfort in times of trouble. In the pages of Scripture, we find not only the details of tomorrow's headlines, but hope for all Eternity. For over two thousand years, The Bible has influenced both commoners and kings. It has shaped nations and has been the subject of bitter conflict. It is the most popular book in the history of the world. Despite its influence, there are few who know the history of this ancient text. There are few who know the names of the Secretaries of God who took part in the translation of the Hebrew and Greek texts into the King James Bible, The most influential Book in the history of printing. The Sword Of Truth takes the reader on a mystic quest, not only to know the history of The Bible, but also to know The Author of The Bible.
