Different blood flows in their veins--but our blood quenches their thirst. From Bram Stoker's 1897 creation of Count Dracula, portrayed as a foreign invader bent on the conquest of England, the literary vampire has symbolized the Other, whether his or her otherness arises from racial, ethnic, sexual, or species difference. Even before the bloodsucking Martians of H. G. Wells' War of the Worlds, however, popular fiction contained a few vampires who were members of alien species rather than...
There are secrets on the mountain. Things adults know but don't tell their children. The young hear bits and pieces of conversations and become intrigued. They want to explore. Discover. Without knowing all the details, they can't make good decisions. Their curiosity takes them on journey's they later wish they never went on. It shows them things they wish they never saw.
Sometimes strange things happen on the mountain, like pets disappearing. Or toys. Or even people. No one knows where they go, just that they are gone. Or, at least, that is what the grownups tell the children. What if the grownups know more than what they are letting on? What if they know where all the missing things and people are, but just wont say? What if they don't? After all, it isn't just children the denizens of the dark take. It can be anyone. Even adults who no longer believe.
On the mountain, children are not any more safe than adults. Sometimes, a fabled monster turns out to be real. Other times, something completely unexpected will happen. And when your parents do not believe in something, you can't change what might happen. Children learn young to be strong but they are still afraid, wondering if they'll be the next to disappear. The next child the mountain folks search for during the day, and cry for at night.
After befriending a raccoon, Jessica and her cousins learn a disturbing truth about some of their elders. What secret presents itself to the children of the mountain in this first of four stories?
Are we more than the roles we're expected--or even willingly--to fill? In her forties, Cassie McBride has come to the realization that she lost herself in marriage and trying to be a good mother to her two children, both now in college. While she loved her job as a family court lawyer, she can no longer separate what made her happy and what she did because she believed she was supposed to in order to be fulfilled.
Kat Dueschner is determined to be the opposite of her heavenly-minded mother. She wants to be an adventurer and frequently gets into mischief. Joining her companion Juan on a night-time adventure to build an Easter fire in the hills, Kat is bit by a rattlesnake. Although her mother is leery of the forest, she rescues her daughter only to befall her own tragedy. Overnight, Kat and Juan find their perspectives and ambitions change.
Should Christians study eschatology--the part of theology concerned with death, judgment, and the final destiny of the soul and of humankind? What does the Bible say about End Times and how can laypeople learn about it without having to scale "Mount Prophecy" to get there? Biblical prophecy is the topic of countless books, many that are long and use theological language that often escapes the average, faithful member of a Bible-believing church.
Authenticity is, unfortunately, not much found in the church. As Christians, how do we know for sure we're walking the talk, living the example, being the salt and light we're commanded to be in the Bible? Do nonbelievers see the joy and authenticity in our lives?
The Timestream is at least six known versions of Planet Earth arranged in hexagonal fashion. Each has different histories and societies, some different geologies, but all share the same physical laws and chronology. At critical historical points on one of the planets, crucial decisions result in two Earths with the same prior history but differing subsequent ones. Major events on neighbouring planets in the Timestream affect each other strongly...
