Know Me Better, Man by Summary

Marvin was raised by parents that are passionate for God. In his childhood, he was exposed to several people that were themselves examples of true disciples. In High School, he stopped struggling against the tug of God and became a follower of Jesus. Out of his love for God he has been a worship leader for many years. In the winter of 2016 God began to stir his heart to a deeper walk. In February of 2017 he resigned his position as Worship Pastor to take sabbatical for the refreshment of his body and spirit. It was the preface to what he and his wife have dubbed, “the year of the unexpected”. In the summer of 2017, Marvin began an intentional pursuit of God that would eclipse his previous efforts at discipleship. This is the diary of his walk, originally intended for his children, but at their urging, for any that could be encouraged by it.

The Will to Write by Reg. B. Cornejo Summary

After I finished writing this book, I found myself noting or recognizing the stories, essays, and poems found in this book tell the story of my life. The book in short provides a look into my philosophy of life and the wisdom I use (and have used) to survive and live in a white man’s world, without going crazy or giving up. As the public reads my short essays, stories, and poems, I hope the message found in my written works will help them see and feel why I stay connected to my people and their wisdom, a wisdom that has taught me to always stay connected to mother earth and my people’s “Red Road.” I want to note the stories, essays, and poems found in my book come from both published works and works I never sent in to get published. I hope the wide range of topics found in this collection will not only touch my readers but they will also challenge them to see life under a new light, a “modern-day Red-Man’s light.” Since this book is a collection of many published and unpublished works, I felt it was best to not separate this book into chapters. I made this choice because I feel each essay, story, prose, and poem is powerful enough to stand on its own. As my readers work their way through my book, I hope they will take the time to stop and think about the message found in each written work and hopefully, in some cases, find themselves reconnecting with the land that is America and my people’s wisdom that says, “We are one with mother earth,” and “we are all born to die because life is a circle like the Native American Medicine Wheel.”

Marley's Ghost by Brian Katcher Summary

Marley was dead to begin with… When Marley died in a freak motorcycle accident, no one took it harder than his two nephews, Aaron and Kyler. Seventeen-year-old Aaron, who was adopted from China via a religious charity, worries that the heaven he was taught about is not for sinners like his uncle. But how could a benevolent God refuse a nice guy like Marley? And if being a nice guy is all that it takes to get into heaven, why bother to go to church? And is it wrong to even think such thoughts, especially now that he’s starting to date Vanessa, the most faithful girl in the youth group? Meanwhile, fifteen-year-old Kyler has lost the only person who ever treated him like a normal kid. Always in fragile health, Kyler is constantly babied by his family. His uncle was the only adult who didn’t treat him like he would break. Marley encouraged Kyler to take risks, to be assertive, and to maybe ask out Jessica, his long time crush. Now that Marley is gone, Kyler is doomed to more years of ointments, noise-cancelling headphones, and gluten-free snacks. How is this fair? When closing down Marley’s fishing cabin, the cousins discover some geographic coordinates that point to a location in a South Carolina swamp. They’re probably nothing…except someone has started following the boys, trying to get those papers. Something is in that swamp. Something Marley buried there. Something big. Accompanied by Vanessa and Jessica, the boys head off on a Maine to South Carolina road trip to discover Marley’s legacy, and maybe to say good bye to their uncle in their own way. *** “Marley might be gone, but the adventure has just begun—an adventure that will allow Kyler and Aaron to explore what it means to be brave and good. An adventure that will teach them what it means to believe—and that the most important belief is in themselves.” —Holly Schindler, author of the award-winning A Blue So Dark

Kissing Father Christmas by Robin Jones Gunn Summary

Bestselling, award-winning author Robin Jones Gunn welcomes us back to the cozy English village of Carlton Heath for a winter romance that will melt your heart. Anna's first visit to Carlton Heath in England was last May for the wedding of her cousin Ian to Miranda. The beautiful event ended with a dance under the stars and Anna receiving an unexpected kiss from Peter, the groomsman who caught her eye and now holds her heart. Now, at the invitation of family and friends, Anna is returning to Carlton Heath for Christmas. She has Peter's recent email to fill her with assurance that he's looking forward to seeing her again as well. More than his brief words, though, the vivid memory of their unforgettable kiss provides a promise of more to come. Anna, ever the imaginative artist, has been busy painting a romantic conclusion to her holiday visit. Certainly she's not the only one who has been dreaming of another dance and another kiss. But when she sees Peter again, his intentions seem to shift as speedily as the blustery winter weather. Is Anna's heart misleading her, or will Father Christmas bestow on her the gift of love for which she has long dreamed?

Revealing the Green Man is designed to impart a practical revelation of a deep and ancient mystery through actual archaeological and historic case studies which point to personal intellectual and spiritual enlightenment affecting everyone alive today. The book is not just a lazy stroll through entertaining stories of some lost mystery cult, but a resurrection of a long and ancient religion as old as time itself which is now challenging us to care for our environment here in the modern world. The Green Man proves himself to be a great deal more than a cute chubby face peering at us through a veil of leaves, rather he could be said to be a true representation of the very essence of life itself.

An Altered Spirit by Anna Fruehling Summary

While in the throes of addiction, Anna Fruehling felt hopeless, afraid, lonely, and ashamed. In short, Anna was spiritually dead, just like the fictional character, Ebenezer Scrooge, an addict who only thought of money and was driven by impulse to constantly seek more. In a creative presentation, Anna compares the twelve steps of addiction recovery with the characters of Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol, a timeless tale that has both haunted and buoyed her since she began her recovery in fellowship on March 19, 1989. With the intent of highlighting the power of each of the twelve steps interlaced with valuable spiritual principles, Anna leads others through Scrooge’s internal struggles as Marley reminds him that “these are the chains you forged in life,” introduces him to three ghosts, and provides him with hope that he can escape his fate and become all his higher power intends him to be. An Altered Spirit is a love story and gratitude offering that relies on a timeless tale to help others view the twelve-step process to recovery in a new way to ultimately realize a transformed life. “An Altered Spirit is a very powerful book to be read by anyone knowing they have an addiction, thinking maybe they have an addiction, thinking they do not have an addiction, that maybe a loved one has an addiction or not. It is a profound story of a woman’s journey from hell and back. It is honest, upfront, plain, simple and clear. Please read it.” —Bitten Jonsson, world-renowned Sugar / Food Addiction Educator

A Christmas carol in prose, being a ghost story of Christmas by Charles Dickens Summary

“A national benefit and to every man or woman who reads it, a personal kindness.” --William Makepeace Thackeray The Western world typically thinks of Christmas as having a singular origin, away in a manger, but when you look at how the holiday is celebrated today, it’s hard to see a more powerful progenitor than Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. First published on December 17, 1843 as a novella, the story bestowed on Christmas its rich and complicated social character. Ebenezer’s epic Christmas Eve illustrates both the joy to be found in friends, family, and festive gatherings... and the dangers of letting such happiness and privilege blind you to the lives of the less fortunate. The story is a product of its time, a response to the ills of Victorian-era industrialization and the desire for tradition, but you only need to look at how varied the adaptations of A Christmas Carol have become--on stage, in film, and in song--to know that it is truly timeless. This exclusive edition of A Christmas Carol in Prose: Being a Ghost Story of Christmas is one adaptation not to miss. It is a scanned volume of the original novella--complete with original spooky title--enhanced with new illustrations and narration by artist and musician Jon Langford. Here Langford imagines the story as a stage production put on by a small West Yorkshire theater in 1916. Download it for free to see--and hear--each of the four ghosts as an early 20th century audience might have.

A Vampire Christmas Carol by Sarah Gray Summary

Ebenezer Scrooge has never been known for the greatness of his heart. A miser, a leech, a penny-pinching old coot. . . Say what you will about him, though—he's never actually sucked someone's blood. That dubious honor belongs to the vampires who surround him, preying on the weak and laying traps for the strong. They've dogged his footsteps since he was born, driving him from the love of his friends, family, and faithful fiancée. Now, on Christmas Eve, Scrooge's old friend Jacob Marley rises from the grave to warn him about the evil gathering around him. With three mysterious spirits to guide him, he rediscovers his lost love Belle, toiling fearlessly as a seamstress by day and vampire hunter by night. He sees the secrets of his nephew Fred and his clerk Bob Cratchit, who risk their lives as Belle's loyal soldiers. And he learns of the plot mounting to attack all of them, starting with the innocent sacrifice of Bob's son Tiny Tim. . . Scrooge has only one night to save himself and all that he once treasured—but if he can vanquish the vampires, he might finally earn back the love he cast away. . .

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens Summary

Never out of print since its initial appearance in 1843, A Christmas Carol has been adapted countless times to the stage, radio, television, film and opera. The selfish miser Scrooge’s name has become synonymous with greed and indifference to the welfare of others. His immortal Christmas eve visitations by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come have become a cultural fixture and a fundamental part of the Christmas Holidays around the world. A Christmas Carol was conceived by the author with the deliberate intent of shaking his audience with an emotional tale designed to inspire compassion and charity toward the disadvantaged, especially children. Scrooge’s surreal, spellbinding journey into the meaning of Christmas, with its climactic insistence that a life lived without love and charity is no life at all, provides readers with one of literature’s finest, most unforgettable entertainments while celebrating the good in humanity and providing the world with the most cherished Christmas story ever written. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of A Christmas Carol is both modern and readable.

Prelude to a Christmas Carol by Teresa L. Jones Summary

There were four individuals with a plan, two men released from a Sanitarium, two others farthest from wealth, all in need of a Christmas miracle. Their plan was to change the future of one man, Ebenezer Scrooge. Some may have had their reasons,but none as good as the brother in law of Ebenezer Scrooge, Charles. After Charles wife dies giving birth to their son, he becomes lost in a world without her. Charles sisters think him insane, release him to a sanitarium and take his son, Fred, to raise until Charles is well again. At Williams Sanitarium, Charles falls into a deep delirium and wakes seventeen years later to the cries of a child. Charles feels the guilt of a father who longs for his son, along with his bodys addiction to the drug laudanum and the fear of possibly falling into that same delirium again. Charles befriends the largest man hes ever seen,named John. A man who has his own demons to deal with. Charles is given back his past, by reading letters his sisters had sent him spanning the last seventeen years he had lost. Both men become mesmerized by the letters as the sisters tell of Freds childhood to adulthood and Ebenezers wrath on humankind. Because of overcrowding,both men are released from Williams Sanitarium. Charles returns to the home he once knew, which brings him memories of his wifes death and the whispers of her ghost. Charles feels suchhostility toward Ebenezer for his hatefulness towardshis son Fred. Charles concocts a plan, and enlists the help of Peter Cratchit and the child of Ebenezers old love. All help in the redemption of Ebenezer Scrooge. Not everything would go according to plan, but the evening's spectacular events branded the hearts and souls of more than just Ebenezer.

A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas by Charles Dickens Summary

Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it: and Scrooge's name was good upon Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Scrooge knew he was dead. Of course he did. How could it be otherwise. Scrooge and he were partners for I don?t know how many years. Scrooge was his sole executor, his sole administrator, his sole assign, his sole residuary legatee, his sole friend, and sole mourner. And even Scrooge was not so dreadfully cut up by the sad event, but that he was an excellent man of business on the very day of the funeral, and solemnised it with an undoubted bargain.Ê

The Complete Works of Charles Dickens by Charles Dickens Summary

It is impossible to overstate the importance of British novelist CHARLES DICKENS (1812-1870) not only to literature in the English language, but to Western civilization on the whole. He is arguably the first fiction writer to have become an international celebrity. He popularized episodic fiction and the cliffhanger, which had a profound influence on the development of film and television. He is entirely responsible for the popular image of Victorian London that still lingers today, and his characters-from Oliver Twist to Ebenezer Scrooge, from Miss Havisham to Uriah Heep-have become not merely iconic, but mythic. But it was his stirring portraits of ordinary people-not the upper classes or the aristocracy-and his fervent cries for social, moral, and legal justice for the working poor, and in particular for poor children, in the grim early decades of the Industrial Revolution that powerfully impacted social concerns well into the 20th century. Without Charles Dickens, we may never have seen the likes of Sherlock Holmes, Upton Sinclair, or even Bob Dylan. Here, in 30 beautiful volumes-complete with all the original illustrations-is every published word written by one of the most important writers ever. The essential collector's set will delight anyone who cherishes English literature...and who takes pleasure in constantly rediscovering its joys. This volume contains Dickens's famous 1843 novel A Christmas Carol plus his lesser-known tales of the winter holiday: The Chimes (1844), The Cricket on the Hearth (1845), The Battle of Life (1846), and The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain (1848).

Great Expectations & Other Great Dickens' Novels - 5 Books in One Volume (Illustrated Edition) by Charles Dickens Summary

A Tale of Two Cities: A Tale of Two Cities is a novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralized by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same time period. It follows the lives of several protagonists through these events. Great Expectations: Great Expectations is a bildungsroman, or a coming-of-age novel, and it is a classic work of Victorian literature. It depicts the growth and personal development of an orphan named Pip. The novel was first published in serial form in Dickens' weekly periodical All the Year Round, from 1 December 1860 to August 1861. David Copperfield: David Copperfield is the common name of the eighth novel by Charles Dickens, first published as a novel in 1850. Many elements of the novel follow events in Dickens' own life, and it is probably the most autobiographical of his novels. Oliver Twist: Oliver Twist is notable for Dickens' unromantic portrayal of criminals and their sordid lives. The book exposed the cruel treatment of many a waif-child in London, which increased international concern in what is sometimes known as "The Great London Waif Crisis": the large number of orphans in London in the Dickens era. A Christmas Carol: The tale has been viewed by critics as an indictment of 19th-century industrial capitalism. It has been credited with restoring the holiday to one of merriment and festivity in Britain and America after a period of sobriety and sombreness. Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded by many as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era.
