ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Robert Graves (1895–1985) was an English novelist, poet, and translator of Classical Greek and Roman literature, and one of the most prominent English writers of the 20th century. He was an extremely prolific writer, who published more than 140 novels and collections of poetry. In addition to novels and poetry, he published groundbreaking analysis of Greek mythology, as well as a memoir of his time in combat during World War I, where he was gravely wounded at the Battle of the Somme. Graves is best known for his historical novels, which include I, Claudius, Claudius the God, The Golden Fleece, King Jesus, and Count Belisarius. In 1934, Robert Graves was awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for his historical novels dealing with the Roman Emperor Claudius.

Raphael Patai (1910–1996) was a Hungarian-Jewish ethnographer, historian, Orientalist and anthropologist. While Patai’s work was widespread, ranging from the development of ancient Israelite culture to modern Arab studies, his primary focus and first passion was Jewish folklore. Among his other books are Myth and Legend of Ancient Israel, The Hebrew Goddess, and The Myth of the Jewish Race. He was a professor at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and founded the Palestine Institute of Folklore and Ethnology, where he served as the research director for four years. After he became a U.S. citizen he held visiting professorships at many esteemed universities, including Princeton, Columbia, New York University, and the University of Pennsylvania. In 1936, Raphael was granted the Bialik Prize for Jewish thought jointly with Moshe Zvi Segal.

Malestrom: Manhood Swept into the Currents of a Changing World

Malestrom: Manhood Swept into the Currents of a Changing World

Carolyn Custis James

Malestrom builds on and expands previous books by Carolyn Custis James to explore the idea of manhood, a growing issue both in the wider culture and in the church. Until now, the entire discussion has been largely reduced to Western conceptions. Instead, James here shows how our culture’s narrow definitions of manhood are upended when we consider the examples of men in the Bible and Jesus’ gospel. Together, they show a whole new Kingdom way of being male and forging men and women into the Blessed Alliance.

His Love Never Quits: Finding Purpose Through Your Pain

Cherie Hill

Like many people, you’ve done your best to gain control of your life—to force reality to fit into the confines of your high expectations. Reality, though, has a way of repeatedly dashing your hopes and crushing your dreams. You’ve been told to believe God is in control, but countless dark and painful circumstances have your mind filled with questions that desperately beg answers: Why can’t life ever go according to my plan? How do I trust God in the midst of chaos? Does He really know what’s best for me?

You might survive on your own for a season, but sooner or later you’ll be forced to admit you can’t make it alone. Yet you fear that letting God take control will take you places you’re not ready or willing to go. But it’s in times of desperation and uncertainty that your faith has the opportunity to grow, leading to what you desperately need the most: the peace of God which surpasses all understanding.

Join bestselling author Cherie Hill as she reveals the good news that life may not go according to your plan, but it does go according to His.

When I faced the biggest crisis of my life, God used my newfound Sisters to show me what it means to be just a sinner saved by grace.
