During the Silent Era, when most films dealt with dramatic or comedic takes on the “boy meets girl, boy loses girl” theme, other motion pictures dared to tackle such topics as rejuvenation, revivication, mesmerism, the supernatural and the grotesque. A Daughter of the Gods (1916), The Phantom of the Opera (1925), The Magician (1926) and Seven Footprints to Satan (1929) were among the unusual and startling films containing story elements that went far beyond the realm of “highly unlikely.” Using surviving documentation and their combined expertise, the authors catalog and discuss these departures from the norm in this encyclopedic guide to American horror, science fiction and fantasy in the years from 1913 through 1929.

The Bible version issue made simple In simple layman's language, Barry Burton explains the basic issues in the Bible version controversy...and makes it easy to understand why the King James is the only Bible you can trust. In Let's Weigh The Evidence, you will learn the following: Origins of the King James Bible The King James Bible Version is from the Textus Receptus, or Received Text. Facts About the Vaticanus It leaves out 237 words, 452 clauses and 748 whole sentences, which hundreds of later copies agree together as having the same words in the same places. The Unreliability of the Siniaticus Examined by John Burgon, he writes about the Siniaticus, "On many occasions 10, 20, 30, 40 words are dropped through carelessness. Letters, words or even whole sentences are frequently written twice over, or begun and immediately cancelled; while that gross blunder, whereby a clause is omitted because it happens to end in the same words as the clause proceeding, occurs no less than 115 times in the New Testament." Westcott and Hort Read quotes made by Hort: "The old dogmatic view of the Bible therefore, is not only open to attack from the standpoint of science and historical criticism, but if taken seriously itbecomes a danger to religion and public morals." Copyrights The following versions have copyrights: Revised Standard Version, New American Standard, Living Bible, Good News Bible, New International Bible, New Scofield, and more. According to the New Standard Encyclopedia vol. 3, page 565, the definition of a copyright is, "The legal protection given to authors and artists to prevent reproduction of their work without their consent. The owner of a copyright has the exclusive right to print, reprint, publish, copy and sell the material covered by the copyright." By taking out a copyright on a so-called "Bible", the copyright owner admits that this is not "God's Word" but "Their own words." Side-by-side Verse Comparisons Show Modern Versions Have Attacked Fundamental Doctrines • Deity of Christ • Salvation by faith • Atonement • The Second Coming of Christ • The Virgin Birth of Christ and much, much more!

Lara Jeans Liebesleben verlief bisher eher unauffällig. Nicht, dass es ihr an Herz oder Fantasie mangelte. Im Gegenteil, Liebeskummer hatte sie schon oft, und unsterblich verliebt war sie auch schon. Einmal sogar in den Freund ihrer großen Schwester. Klar, dass sie das keinem anvertrauen kann. Außer ihrer Hutschachtel. Denn um sich ihrer Gefühle klar zu werden, schreibt Lara Jean jedes Mal einen Abschieds-Liebesbrief, in dem sie so richtig ihr Herz ausschüttet, und legt ihn dort hinein. Diese fünf Briefe sind ein streng gehütetes Geheimnis. Bis zu dem Tag, an dem auf mysteriöse Weise jeder Brief seinen Empfänger erreicht und Lara Jeans rein imaginäres Liebesleben völlig außer Kontrolle gerät ...
