Discover how many evangelical leaders, willingly or unwittingly, are undermining the authority of God's Word by compromising the Bible in Genesis Learn how allowing for an old/universe of billions of years unlocks a door of compromise Heed the wake-up call to the Church to return to the authority of God's Word, beginning in Genesis. Today, most Bible colleges, seminaries, K-12 Christian schools, and now even parts of the homeschool movement do not accept the first eleven chapters of Genesis as literal history. They try to fit the supposed billions of years into Genesis, and some teach evolution as fact. Our churches are largely following suit. Ken Ham, international speaker and author on biblical authority, examines how compromise starting in Genesis, particularly in regard to the six days of creation and the earth's age, have filtered down from the Bible colleges and seminaries to pastors—and finally to parents and their children. This erosive legacy is seen in generations of young people leaving the Church—2/3 of them. Get the facts, discover God's truth, and help bring a new reformation to the Church by helping to call it back to the authority of God's Word.

His writings revealed the vastness of a dark void space, millions of "Light Years" throughout the universe.One might think that our Solar System, its nine planers is unique in the universe. Actually, there are thousands of galaxies that resemble our system.As for life, there are thousands of planets and galaxies. Is our solar system the only galaxy that has life? No one has an exact figure as to planets with living life. Yet, we are part of the universe. If we live on Earth, the universe is duplicated many times with life, existing in many planets throughout the universe.One might say that life in other parts of the universe is only theory. Yet we are not alone.As an author/artist, Harry Zaslow studied photos taken from the Hubble Space Telescope. The Hubble Space Telescope is located in one area of earth, well beyond the Earth's field of gravity. The telescope does not orbit earth. From its permenant position it takes photos of universe scenes never seen by mankind, millions of light years from earth. Harry has painted 12 scenes from this space telescope. His paintings show the worlds in the universe, together with their suns and moons.

Son of a rabbi, budding astronomer Gabriel Geismar is on his way from youth to manhood in the 1970s when he falls in love with the esteemed and beguiling Hundert family, different in every way from his own. Over the course of a decade-long drama unfolding in New Orleans, Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, and the Wisconsin countryside, Gabriel enters more and more passionately and intimately into the world of his elective clan, discovering at the inmost center that he alone must bear the full weight of their tragedies, past and present. Yet The Book of Getting Even is funny and robust, a novel rich in those fundamentals we go to great fiction for: the exploration of what is hidden, the sudden shocks, the feeling at last of life laid bare.
