Celtic: Pride and Passion

release date: Oct 10, 2013
Celtic: Pride and Passion
Celtic Football Club’s story is laced with drama and excitement, featuring a host of colourful individuals and a social history matched by few, if any, football clubs. In Celtic: Pride and Passion, Lisbon Lion Jim Craig and Pat Woods, a historian of the club, take a fresh look at several lesser-known episodes in Celtic’s history, including: the fascinating link between Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show and a dramatic Ne’erday match at Celtic Park; the unforgettable night the ‘playboy of the Eastern world’ lit up Parkhead with a performance that helped to sow the seeds for a revolution at the club; the remarkable story of a trophy that was such a source of friction that the club kept it locked in a safe; and the pivotal year in which the rivalry between Celtic and Rangers took on a darker hue. They also recount the revealing story, told through the eyes of the European press, of how Celtic captivated a continent in the annus mirabilis of 1967. Celtic: Pride and Passion is a book that no discerning fan of Celtic Football Club will want to be without.

Swordslayers and Heralds

release date: Nov 09, 2018
Swordslayers and Heralds
Journey into the future and realize how your faith today impacts tomorrow. Journey into the past and discover lessons that should be remembered. Dive into theology to see how deep yours may be. Dig deep and uncover theological nuggets like never before. The vast majority of the world's population learn more through stories. The Bible is mostly a collection of stories that theologians and Bible teachers delve into so as to discover the gems of truth buried within. In a similar vein, that was the aim of this endeavor. Swordslayers & Heralds is the beginning for you to stand in the eternal and realize eternity itself is insufficient for you to understand the depths of who God is. "Stories From Eternity [TM]" are Theological Narratives driving home a main point in each book with the setting of the books being Eternity Future and life in the New Jerusalem. The first series (Tales of the Storytellers [TM]) will become, Lord willing, a four-book series that will cover the basics of Christian living (Evangelism, Prayer, the Word, & Fellowship). Other series are in mind (The African Kings, Journeys Beyond) but let me not get ahead of myself. What is important for you to understand now is that "Stories From Eternity [TM] is the overarching media, Tales of the Storytellers [TM] is the first series in the media, and Swordslayers & Heralds is the first book. Swordslayers & Heralds follows a fictional team as they delve deeper into spiritual truth making their discoveries by reflecting on the past. Yet when reflecting on the past they are given fresh insight into the Spiritual Warfare that was taking place at that time. What the team had in common in their First Order was though they were from different eras they all had the same guardian angel - who knows them well. Swordslayers & Heralds answers the question "Why is Hell eternal?" The book was written in such a way that if you are seeking entertainment then read on and enjoy, but if you want to dive deep into theology then take the time to reflect on the Biblical references found in the Footnotes and the comments in the End-notes. There may be new theological thoughts for many readers, and if so, I have included a short list of books that have influenced this writing. I would recommend that you study those academic books and others published by the authors to gain a richer understanding of the theology. This work is Theological Narrative and not prophetic. I present certain subjects (young earth, spiritual realm, etc.) in such a way that demonstrates a plausible explanation, but it is not intended to be factual. Never confuse what is Biblical (Abrahamic Covenant, the Lord is my Shepherd, etc.) with what is theological (Calvinism, Soteriology, etc.). Everything must be examined against scriptures. The past is history. The future is potential. Now is all that there is of time. Theology produces great joy when learned and should be pleasing to glean. I truly hope you enjoy the read. May God bless you as you partake in the Stories From Eternity.
