In his bestseller The Pieces of the Puzzle, Robert Stanek masterfully brought readers into a world of intrigue and espionage, a world where former intelligence analyst Scott Evers found himself in a desperate race against a mysterious machine that could control the world's financial markets, bringing ruin not unlike the great economic collapse that came into our reality a few years after the book was published. In Cards in the Deck, the exiting follow-up to The Pieces of the Puzzle, Robert Stanek brings readers into darker corners of the same world, where the most powerful intelligence organizations on earth, the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the United States Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean are about to go head to head with terrorists the likes of which the world has never seen. In the heart of the Mediterranean, Scott Evers is drawn into a harrowing world centered around one of history's most elite military warrior forces: the Navy SEALs. Facing a chilling, relentless adversary, Evers is pulled into a landscape of Navy strike groups, tactical response teams, and killers willing to do anything it takes to get the job done. Drawing from his past experiences as an analyst and operative, Evers races to find answers and decide whom to trust... before the world becomes a place we no longer recognize.

The Turn of the Cycle

1 Samuel 1–8 in Synchronic and Diachronic Perspectives

Author: Serge Frolov

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG

ISBN: 3110907356

Category: Religion

Page: 289

View: 7298

The monograph produces a new interpretation of the opening chapter of 1 Samuel by combining several hermeneutical models, including the theory of chaotic (dynamically unstable) systems and the most recent, essentially post-modern, form criticism, to produce a new interpretation of the opening chapters of 1 Samuel. It argues that 1 Samuel 1-8 is an integral literary unit whose stance on such pivotal issues as monarchy and cultic centralization poorly agrees with that of the balance of Deuteronomy - Kings. In the diachronic perspective, this unit can be construed as a post-Deuteronomistic redactional interpolation polemically directed against several planks of the Deuteronomic/Deuteronomistic agenda. In the synchronic perspective, the pattern of relationship between 1 Samuel 1-8 and the balance of Genesis - Kings calls for a non-linear, multi-dimensional reading of the corpus. Both interpretational trajectories lead to the conclusion that the thrust of the Former Prophets in its final form is controlled to a considerable extent by non-Deuteronomistic elements.

A new legend is born! COTTON FBI is a remake of a world famous cult series with more than one billion copies sold. EPISODE 1: THE BEGINNING. New York City. A Chinese woman was brutally murdered and Jeremiah Cotton, a young cop with the NYPD, just can't let go. He suspects that the woman is the victim of a serial killer, but no one believes him and he is taken off the case. While carrying out an unauthorized investigation, Cotton encounters a division of the FBI whose existence no one knows about: the "G-Team." Stubborn and persistent, Cotton asks uncomfortable questions about the mysterious unit - and runs afoul of Special Agent Philippa "Phil" Decker in the process. When he narrowly escapes an attempt on his life, Cotton realizes that this is no ordinary killer hunt and the hotter the case is getting, the more determined he is to stay involved ... EPISODE 2: COUNTDOWN. 12:04 AM, New York. An American Airlines flight making its approach to landing. The descent is stopped and the aircraft begins to circle over Manhattan as if it were guided by an invisible hand. - 1:00 AM, G-Team HQ. Agents Jeremiah Cotton and Philippa Decker learn that terrorists have hacked the onboard systems and taken control of the airplane. They are demanding the release of Seif al-Bakkay, a high-level terrorist. The agents have only six hours remaining to find the perpetrators before the aircraft over Manhattan runs out of fuel ... EPISODE 3: HIDDEN SHADOWS. New York. Hundreds of commuters just barely escape with their lives when an attack on the George Washington Bridge fails. The attempt falls in line with a chain of acts of sabotage that occurred at famous landmarks in the past few weeks. Obviously, someone is targeting prominent structures in New York. What are the perpetrator's objectives? Agents Jeremiah Cotton and Philippa Decker are facing a mystery. Until there is another attack. Right before their eyes. Nearly 1,000 feet above Manhattan - on the Empire State Building ... EPISODE 4: WITNESS PROTECTION. A well-dressed man is found dead, floating in a New York harbor basin. The drowned man originally hailed from a small town in Alabama and, according to local authorities, died six years ago. The FBI gets involved. Agents Cotton and Decker soon realize that there are more cases like this: affluent criminals who were living under false names and then were murdered. These very names also appear on the list of a witness protection program and Cotton receives a visit from two colleagues who won't tolerate any further investigation. But a man like Cotton doesn't buckle under pressure ...

A Textlinguistic Analysis of Selected Old Testament Texts in Matthew 1-4

Author: Jeffery L. Capshaw

Publisher: Peter Lang

Page: 214

While providing exciting research opportunities, the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament continues to create interpretive difficulties. Although Matthew’s use of the Old Testament generated much scholarly discussion throughout the historical-critical period, during the contemporary period specific interest in Matthew’s Old Testament usage seemed to decrease. Recently, however, many powerful analytical approaches have come to the fore in biblical studies, including various text-centered methods such as textlinguistics (also known as discourse analysis). This book applies one specific type of discourse grammar to several Old Testament citations in Matthew’s Gospel. This analysis is presented both to initiate discussion and to show how this and similar methods might be utilized to contribute important perspectives on the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament.
