Unbecome everything you were never meant to be.
Author: Eddie Newton
Once, when the world was new, God looked down on His creation and was disappointed. The skies rained down on His world for forty days and forty nights. He made Noah the inheritor of His creation.

Nine people have been chosen to build a new ark, to survive the Second Flood, to make good God's vision of humanity. Who are these Nine? And what about everyone else? It is time. . . Sink? Or swim?

Author: Gregory Stock
Publisher: Workman Publishing
The phenomenon returns! Originally published in 1987, The Book of Questions, a New York Times bestseller, has been completely revised and updated to incorporate the myriad cultural shifts and hot-button issues of the past twenty-five years, making it current and even more appealing. This is a book for personal growth, a tool for deepening relationships, a lively conversation starter for the family dinner table, a fun way to pass the time in the car. It poses over 300 questions that invite people to explore the most fascinating of subjects: themselves and how they really feel about the world. The revised edition includes more than 100 all-new questions that delve into such topics as the disappearing border between man and machine—How would you react if you learned that a sad and beautiful poem that touched you deeply had been written by a computer? The challenges of being a parent—Would you completely rewrite your child’s college-application essays if it would help him get into a better school? The never-endingly interesting topic of sex—Would you be willing to give up sex for a year if you knew it would give you a much deeper sense of peace than you now have? And of course the meaning of it all—If you were handed an envelope with the date of your death inside, and you knew you could do nothing to alter your fate, would you look? The Book of Questions may be the only publication that challenges—and even changes—the way you view the world, without offering a single opinion of its own.

Out of the smoldering ashes, Ben Raines has emerged to build a new society in this once proud land. But in this hellish new world there is evil lurking, evil that will stop at nothing to destroy the dream of a new America. Leaving a small rear-guard detachment at their home base in Louisiana, Ben Raines and his rebel army begin an overload expedition to New York City--the armed Hell on Earth of the cannibalistic mutants known as the Night People.

This is an Egyptian edition of one of the most internationally celebrated works of fiction, Hemingway’s The old Man and the Sea. A Pulitzer-award and - Noble-prize winner, this work has cer- tainly become so extensively known all over the world, receiving a myriad of critical studies and translations. Hemingway himself could have never imagined such a sweeping success for his novel- la, devised while temporarily staying (for a few weeks) at a fishing village in Cuba. It is not simply the story of a big fish catch, but it is the story of a touching human relationship between old age and younghood, not to mention its highly philosophical message that it carries. All this, apart from other equally significant factors, makes Hemingway’s work worth reading and contemplating.
