Can you name...Newton's 3 laws of motion?The 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse?The 5 pillars of Islam? The 6 wives of Henry VIII?The 7 kinds of plane triangles? The 8 Beatitudes?If you're not sure about the answers to the above, this is the book for you. A compendium of 101 culturally significant particulars from the fields of mythology, religion, literature, history, science, mathematics, art, and music, What Are the 7 Wonders of the World? is a stimulating fusion of facts and fun that makes for an invaluable reference and an entertaining diversion. Questions are grouped in sections according to the number of items in their answer (all the 3s, all the 4s, all the 5s, etc.), so that the answers are in the form of easily memorized lists. You won't find Luther's 95 theses, or the 264 Popes, for example, but you will find everything from the 3 sons of Adam and Eve all the way up to the 24 letters of the ancient Greek alphabet. This clever format lends itself well to quizzing and guessing, which gives it a deliciously sophisticated parlor-game quality. But for those who wish to delve a little deeper, there are thoughtful essays to go with each answer that include fascinating details and place the list in its larger cultural or historical context. Much more than a book of trivia, What Are the 7 Wonders of the World? offers a grand overview of the knowledge needed to appreciate many of the finest things in our cultural and intellectual life.

“Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13 KJVER) Just as the High Priest was commanded to sprinkle the blood of the sacrificial animal on the ground seven times on the Day of Atonement, Jesus’s blood drenched the earth seven times so that the seven wonders of the cross could take place in our lives. In The Seven Wonders of the Cross, Wilkin van de Kamp leads us on an intense journey to the seven moments in which the blood of Jesus soaked the earth during the last eighteen hours of His life. The seven moments that Jesus bled did not occur by accident. Each was a prophetic action, predicted hundreds of years before, inspired by God and done through His will. The personal testimonies that are interwoven in this book bring the wonder of the cross to us more intimately, forming one miraculous gift from God the Father for all His children here on earth. Discover how Jesus has given His life perfectly for you so that the seven wonders of the cross can also take place in your life.
