Jeremiah in History and Tradition

release date: Sep 30, 2021
Jeremiah in History and Tradition
Jeremiah in History and Tradition examines aspects of the Book of Jeremiah from a variety of perspectives including historical, textual, redaction, and feminist criticism, as well as the history of its reception. The book looks afresh at the Book of Jeremiah through the lens of intertextuality and reception history in the broadest sense, exploring Jeremiah in its historical context as well as the later history and interpretation of the text, and also reconsidering aspects of the Book of Jeremiah''s traditions. This volume features essays from a unique assembly of scholars, both seasoned and new. It is divided into two parts: Jeremiah in History, which explores a variety of readings of Jeremiah from the point of view of classical historical criticism; and Jeremiah in Tradition, which discusses the portraits and use of both the book and the figure of Jeremiah in extra-biblical traditions. Offering challenging new theories, Jeremiah in History and Tradition is invaluable to scholars and students in the field of Biblical Studies. It is a useful resource for anyone working on the interpretation of the biblical text and the readings of the text of Jeremiah throughout history.

The Assassin El Paso
With a virtually nonexistent southern border and crime rampant across much of the country, the notoriously brutal MS 13 organization is spreading its tentacles throughout most of the major US cities and into the suburbs. When law enforcement is unable, and often hampered by political pressure, to handle the increase in violent criminal activity, a solution must be found before the country descends into chaos. Black Water is ultimately called in to resolve the problem in ways that would be totally unacceptable to law enforcement and the majority of the nation’s law abiding citizens. After a year of planning, Jim Lashley is tasked with eradicating their activities in El Paso, Texas. Even using the latest in technology to track the MS 13 members, Jim and his team soon find that they cannot complete their operation until the streets are running red with the blood of the gang.

Toddlers at the Table?

release date: Feb 20, 2021
Toddlers at the Table?
Rev. Jim West tackles the increasingly popular practice of paedocommunion: serving the Lord''s Supper to children, even babies and toddlers. Reasoning from the Scriptures, Pastor West helps his readers understand the key issues in 125 questions and answers: the definition of paedocommunion, the role of the covenant, the necessity of discerning the Lord''s body, church history and paedocommunion, the spiritual dangers of paedocommunion, and more. He faithfully defends the historic, orthodox position and explains why protestant churches have traditionally practiced confessional or credo-communion. The sacraments are a vital practice of the Christian church and an essential means of grace for the individual believer. While protestant denominations may disagree about the nature of the presence of Christ in His Supper, we should all agree that it is for the discerning faithful and that we must protect our little ones from such a grievous error. This new edition also includes his previously published article, Jesus'' First Passover: The Relevance of Jesus'' First Pilgrim Passover Upon the Age of Coming to the Lord''s Supper.

The Assassin Baltimore

release date: May 31, 2018
The Assassin Baltimore
After two tours as a recon Marine and one as a Marine F-4 pilot in Vietnam, Jim Lashley was recruited to be a member of the clandestine enforcement arm of Dark Water, a subsidiary of the international security company known as Black Water. Dark Waters sole mission was to deal with any obstacle preventing the parent company from fulfilling its contracts with US government agencies, primarily the CIA. After retiring from the Marines and joining American Airlines as a pilot, he became an assassin for the domestic side of the group that worked solely within the United States. Contracted by various government agencies as well as civilian corporations, Muddy Water resolved issues that were counter to the interest of the government or the company that contracted for their unique skills. Protecting the members of the company from discovery was paramount to ensuring success. Each operation was meticulously planned, and the final solution only authorized after every attempt at resolution had been exhausted. Then the best members of the organization for each assignment were sent in to resolve the issue. This usually resulted in an assassination. Jims position as an airline pilot allowed him to crisscross the United States with relative immunity from scrutiny as he worked with other members of the group that performed the operations. After years spent in eliminating combatants for the government, the transition to the removal of civilian targets for the same government was relatively easy.
