Description : They are called the Demons, one of the elusive Nightwalker races living in the shadow and struggling for survival against their human enemies. Their proudest warrior is Elijah, a man who bends for nothing and no one - until one woman bring him to his knees. Powerful, relentless, merciless, Elijah has won every battle he's ever taken on - until now. Ambushed by necromancers, he is left for dead only to be discovered by the woman who could very well deliver the final blow . . . Siena, the Lycanthrope Queen. A little more than a decade of uneasy peace has existed between the Lycanthropes and Elijah's people. Now, after a lifetime of suspicion, the warrior in Elijah is consumed with a different battle - winning Siena's heart by giving her pleasure beyond all boundaries. And as would-be enemies become inseparable lovers, another threat approaches, one with the power to destroy them all.
Description : This work is the first to examine the educational philosophy of Elijah Muhammad, the founder of the Nation of Islam and a pivotal leader in America's history. This timely book outlines Elijah Muhammad's educational ideas in relation to critical pedagogy, multicultural education, and critical white studies, a branch of "critical race theory"- which is a scholarly theory popularized in the mid-1970s and reaches across disciplines to explore the relationship among race, the justice system, and society. In this seminal work, Professor Pitre introduces several key components of Elijah Muhammad's educational philosophy, such as the knowledge of self; the purpose of education; education for a new world; and the role of teachers. Professor Pitre's presentation of these facets of Elijah Muhammad's philosophy is used as the basis for the development of a new educational paradigm that is universal in scope. This is a must-read book for those dedicated to creating a new paradigm that can transform individuals, schools, societies, and the world.
Description : Life is full of drama. How can we know the Lord is speaking to us? How can we hear God when our lives are so busy? 1 Kings 17–2 Kings 2 is the story of the prophet Elijah and his example of using basic spiritual disciplines to hear God’s voice. Elijah’s circumstances were not so different than ours. His story is full of highs and lows. He was consumed by fear for his life, depression, fatigue, and too many demands. But when Elijah listened for God’s gentle whispers he was confident, he had God’s power to perform miracles, he had a fiery attitude to take on anything or anybody, he had supernatural strength and energy, he led others’ to recognize Truth, and he had acute hearing of God’s voice. This story begins and ends with the same amazing scene for Elijah ... and for us. It is a miracle more powerful and life changing than fire from heaven or a limitless supply of oil in a jar. It is the miracle of knowing God. Everything that God offered Elijah, He offers to us: His power, His Word, and His Presence. Through the use of basic, daily spiritual disciplines we can prepare our hearts, as Elijah did, to hear the voice of God. Will we allow God to interrupt the harried pace of our days to speak to us? If we are still, we will hear His gentle whisper. Listen closely. He is calling.
Description : In the Name of Elijah Muhammad tells the story of the Nation of Islam—its rise in northern inner-city ghettos during the Great Depression through its decline following the death of Elijah Muhammad in 1975 to its rejuvenation under the leadership of Louis Farrakhan. Mattias Gardell sets this story within the context of African American social history, the legacy of black nationalism, and the long but hidden Islamic presence in North America. He presents with insight and balance a detailed view of one of the most controversial yet least explored organizations in the United States—and its current leader. Beginning with Master Farad Muhammad, believed to be God in Person, Gardell examines the origins of the Nation. His research on the period of Elijah Muhammad’s long leadership draws on previously unreleased FBI files that reveal a clear picture of the bureau’s attempts to neutralize the Nation of Islam. In addition, they shed new light on the circumstances surrounding the murder of Malcolm X. With the main part of the book focused on the fortunes of the Nation after Elijah Muhammad’s death, Gardell then turns to the figure of Minister Farrakhan. From his emergence as the dominant voice of the radical black Islamic community to his leadership of the Million Man March, Farrakhan has often been portrayed as a demagogue, bigot, racist, and anti-Semite. Gardell balances the media’s view of the Nation and Farrakhan with the Nation’s own views and with the perspectives of the black community in which the organization actively works. His investigation, based on field research, taped lectures, and interviews, leads to the fullest account yet of the Nation of Islam’s ideology and theology, and its complicated relations with mainstream Islam, the black church, the Jewish community, extremist white nationalists, and the urban culture of black American youth, particularly the hip-hop movement and gangs.
