The Year of Living Biblically, A. J. Jacobs
2 A. J. Jacobs The Year of Living Biblically
William Heinemann 245143 London 2008 0434017116 / 9780434017119 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Avoiding shellfish was easy. The stoning of adulterers proved a little more difficult - and potentially controversial. Was it enough to walk up to an adulterer and gently touch them with a stone? Even that could be grounds for accusations of assault, especially with female adulterers in Manhattan. So what's a good Bible-reading boy to do? Raised in a secular family but increasingly interested in the relevance of faith in our modern world, A.J. Jacobs decides to dive in head first and attempt to obey the hundreds of less-publicized rules. The resulting spiritual journey is at once funny and profound, reverent and irreverent, personal and universal, and will make you see history's most influential book with new eyes.Jacobs immerses himself in prayer, tends sheep in the Israeli desert, fights idolatry, and tells the absolute truth in all situations - much to his wife's chagrin. His beard grows so unruly that he is mistaken for a member of ZZ Top. He tours a Kentucky-based Creationist museum, dances with Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn and studies scripture with Jehovah's witnesses. And he wrestles with the seemingly archaic rules that baffle the twenty-first century brain, yielding unexpected ephiphanies and challenges. A book that will charm readers secular and religious, "The Year Of Living Biblically" is part York Notes to the bible, part memoir, and part look into worlds unimaginable. Thou shalt not be able to put it down... 388 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Religion, Theology; Religion & Theology; Autobiography::Memoir.

Simon & Schuster 233380 Australia 2003 0743207238 / 9780743207232 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Translated by Alex Gilly. In this third and final installment of the internationally bestselling INCAS trilogy, the love between an Inca princess and a foreign soldier will alter the destiny of two great civilizations once and for all. It's been three years since Captain Pizzaro and his conquistadors began their occupation of the Inca empire. With their insatiable appetite for gold, and despite Pizzaro's attempts at peaceful, Christian stewardship, many men have begun burning villages that fail to produce the valuable metal. Meanwhile, the Incas finally unite and prepare for war against their common enemy. Young Manco has reclaimed his rightful place as Emperor, and the beautiful, magical Anamaya is at his side. Yearning for peace, Anamaya's mysterious blue eyes still look to the spirit world for signs. She knows her beloved Gabriel, the Spanish soldier who bears the sacred puma's mark, will play an important role in the future of the Inca empire. But how can she convince Manco and his warriors that Gabriel is different, when they have sworn revenge against all the light-skinned Strangers? The impending conflict will divide our heroes. But, at the critical moment, will Anamaya and Gabriel choose loyalty or love? 359 pages. History. Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Together with Myles, her gay confidant, Ruth delves into the history of the piece of looted Nazi art and discovers an enigmatic picture with a disturbing wartime provenance. It also appears that the elderly Lydia is not the only claimant and, against strict bureau regulations, Ruth endeavours to help strengthen her case. Days later, Ruth begins to receive sinister anonymous threats, warning her to stay away from Lydia and the painting. When the door of her home, a houseboat on the Bloemgracht canal, is covered in graffiti and her gas supply tampered with, Ruth is convinced these are deterrents from the rival claimant. Our irrepressible and emotionally troubled heroine refuses to take them at face value and continues to strike up a friendship with the lonely old lady. But as the threats escalate, Ruth realises that there must be far more to the painting's popularity, and she enters into a series of increasingly lethal adventures as she investigates the painting's secret symbolism . . . 534 pages.

And when you've got nothing to lose, you have everything to gain. So when MI5 come knocking, Sean knows exactly what they want, and what he'll want in return, but he hasn't got the first idea how to get it. Of course he's heard about the spectacular escape of IRA man Dermot McCann from Her Majesty's Maze prison. And he knew, with chilly certainty, that their paths would cross. But finding Dermot leads Sean to an old locked room mystery, and into the kind of danger where you can lose as easily as winning. From old betrayals and ancient history to 1984's most infamous crime, Sean tries not to fall behind in the race to annihilation. Can he outrun the most skilled terrorist the IRA ever created?
