Stealing the Preacher The Archer Brothers Book 2 Book Excerpt:

Inspirational Historical Romance's Rising Star On his way to interview for a position at a church in the Piney Woods of Texas, Crockett Archer can scarcely believe it when he's forced off the train by a retired outlaw and presented to the man's daughter as the minister she requested for her birthday. Worried this unfortunate detour will ruin his chances of finally serving a congregation of his own, Crockett is determined to escape. But when he finally gets away, he's haunted by the memory of the young woman he left behind--a woman whose dreams now hinge on him. For months, Joanna Robbins prayed for a preacher. A man to breathe life back into the abandoned church at the heart of her community. A man to assist her in fulfilling a promise to her dying mother. A man to help her discover answers to the questions that have been on her heart for so long. But just when it seems God has answered her prayers, it turns out the parson is there against his will and has dreams of his own calling him elsewhere. Is there any way she can convince Crockett to stay in her little backwoods community? And does the attraction between them have any chance of blossoming when Joanna's outlaw father is dead set against his daughter courting a preacher?

The Ruthless Preacher Book Excerpt:

BLURB The Bastard Preacher is mildly upset when his relatively young, attractive mother takes up with his boss, Sonny Riverton. Meanwhile, his fame and popularity continues to soar, even converting his prime critic, Danielle White into a fan and mistress # 2. When Michael, the heir apparent, dies from aids, Jamie Lee's ascendancy is assured and he becomes the number one backup to the reverend. EXCERPT Jamie Lee woke in a stupor. What’s that noise? He looked at his watch and sat up quickly. “Oh, my God, it’s ten after eight.” He reached for and checked his beeper. Two messages, both from Missy. He heard Gwen giggling and turned his gaze to her, lying naked, next to him. He couldn’t decide who looked better naked, her or Missy, they were both exquisite. “What are you laughing about?” “You. You aren’t even married yet and you’re already pussy whipped.” “Yeah, well, if I pull this anymore, I might not even make it to the altar.” She laughed. “Just tell her you were celebrating, knocking the viewer’s socks off by fucking Gwen’s socks off. You did you know? You were magnificent. You are magnificent.” “Very funny.” How did I end up with two beautiful insatiable women? How am I gonna keep two nymphos happy? He jumped out of bed and dressed in two minutes. “Sorry to fuck and run. Damage control, you know.” He leaned down and kissed her. “Thanks, it was even better than I thought it would be and I expected it to be spectacular.” Jamie Lee hopped out of the elevator and raced to his car, a sixty-eight Pontiac GTO, gas-guzzler. Heading straight to Renaissance Jewelers, he picked out an engagement/wedding ring set, a fancy diamond bracelet and something small for Gwen. If looks could kill, Jamie Lee would be gasping for breath from the stare Missy gave him when he got home. “Hi, sorry, I didn’t know you were going to cook dinner tonight.” “Well, I did. It’s probably overcooked and dry by now. Where were you? I called twice and left messages.” “I’m truly sorry. I turned my phone off while I was in the meeting with your father and forgot to turn it back on. He suggested, I get an engagement ring for you, so when I left the office, I visited a few jewelry stores.” Her mood picked up at the mention of an engagement ring. “You got me a ring?” “Two, really. An engagement and wedding ring. And I got you a bracelet to wrap around your pretty wrist.” She bounced around on the couch and stuck her hand out. “Well don’t keep me in suspense.” Her fingers began to wiggle. “Let’s see it?” He handed the ring box to her. She opened it and her eyes immediately widened. “Oh, Jamie Lee, this is stunning.” She glanced up at him. “How did you—?” “I didn’t, I charged it to Soldiers of the Lord.” “Well, it’s gorgeous.” She put the five-caret diamond engagement ring on her left hand and wriggled her fingers. “How does it look?” “It looks like it was made for you.” She stood up and hugged him. “Thank you, I feel guilty. I started having bad thoughts and you were buying me a ring.” “And a bracelet. He handed the bracelet box to her. “This is for you, too.” She sat back on the couch and rapidly opened it, reacting much the same as she had with the engagement ring. “Oh, Jamie Lee, it’s beautiful.” She slipped it on her right wrist and displayed it to her generous fiancé. “It’s gorgeous isn’t it?” “It is, but nothing is as gorgeous as you.” Jamie Lee felt guilty for deceiving her, but it was necessary. He knew she’d never understand his need for other women, when she was so perfect herself. He didn’t even understand it She reached her hands around his rear end and pulled him between her legs until his legs bumped the cushion. She brought her elegant long fingered hands around to the front of his slacks and lowered the zipper. “Now, I’m going to give you a reward.”

The Preacher s Commentary Vol 08 1 and 2 Samuel Book Excerpt:

General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations. The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.

Day of the Dead Book Two: America begins where Day of the Dead Book One: Gaza left off. ISIS is about to launch the deadliest mass-casualty terrorist attack in history against the United States, by way of drug smuggling tunnels that lead from the drug cartel-ruled hills of Tijuana, into downtown San Diego. The only thing standing between them and the people they intend to slaughter are a beautiful, Born Again Christian CIA Agent, an over-the-hill FBI counter-terrorist whose main function in life is covering up for government foul-ups, a New Mexico born-and-raised DEA Agent, a black, twenty-year veteran of the Navy SEAL Teams, and a forty-five-year-old American-born, Israeli-raised intelligence officer from the Givati Brigade, on loan from the IDF. "In Day of the Dead, Gordon has written a frighteningly realistic thriller, a page-turner which paints a compelling portrait of Mid-East combat and espionage, in the age of ISIS and Hamas." -Steven Pressfield, Best-Selling author of Gates of Fire and The Lion's Gate "Dan Gordon has crafted a tale about the vicious world of radical Islamists, criminal gangs, and their victims. His incredible 40 years of service in the Israel Defense Force, knowledge of the US and the Middle East, and ability to spell-bind enables readers to feel the pulse of terror and see into the dark minds of evil incarnate. Day of the Dead: Book One - Gaza is a gripping story as real as today's and tomorrow's shocking headlines." -General Robert Magnus, USMC (Ret) 30th Asst Commandant of the USMC "Gordon gets inside the mind of a terrorist like no other author since Tom Clancy." -Leo Hohmann, World News Daily

Muslim Preacher in the Modern World Book Excerpt:

Richard Antoun documents and exemplifies the single most important institution for the propagation of Islam, the Friday congregational sermon delivered in the mosque by the Muslim preacher. In his analysis of various sermons collected in a Jordanian village and in Amman, the author vividly demonstrates the scope of the Islamic corpus (beliefs, ritual norms, and ethics), its flexibility with respect to current social issues and specific social structures, and its capacity for interpretation and manipulation. Focusing on the pivotal role of preacher as "culture broker," Antoun compares the process of "the social organization of tradition" in rural Jordan with similar processes outside the Muslim world. He then highlights the experiential dimension of Islam. The sermons discussed range over such topics as family ethics, political attitudes, pilgrimage, education, magic, work, compassion, and individual salvation. Originally published in 1989. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
