Just as Esther was set apart for her destiny by her character and her commitment to God, He is preparing young women today to influence their generation for Him. This companion book to For Such a Time as This profiles the lives of several modern-day Esthers, from headliners like Rebecca St. James, Heather Mercer and Dayna Curry to low-profile, unexpected heroines. Each girl's story illustrates important character strengths, such as purity, friendship, honesty, advocacy, prayer, servanthood, and courage, that influenced her response to challenging choices and cultural pressures. These profiles will inspire every young woman who wonders what God can do through her.
You’re more than just a pretty face.
You want something more. In a culture that wants you to live for sex, hate your parents, become apathetic, and get wasted, something inside is calling you to a life of purpose.
And you’re not alone.
Rebecca St. James, Heather Mercer, and Dayna Curry are just a few examples of Gen E girls—young women who, like Esther in the Bible, have been set apart for an incredible destiny by their intense commitment to God.
These profiles of modern-day Esthers, ordinary girls in the hands of an extraordinary God, will inspire you to f ind out how God is preparing you—for such a time as this.

"Elye of Saint-Gilles" tells the story of Elye — the son of Count Julien of Saint-Gilles, a vassal of William of Orange — and of his exploits during his youth and early knighthood. It is part of the William of Orange cycle, whose historical kernel is linked to events of the First and Fourth Crusades and the Reconquest of Spain.
Elye is dubbed a knight but endures an insult from his father at the same time, so he undertakes a self-imposed exile from the court. It is not long, however, before he encounters and battles Saracens who, despite his prowess, capture and transport him across the sea and attempt to convert him to Islam.
After escaping and killing many more Saracens, he himself is mortally wounded but rescued by his own vassal Galopin — the famous character who was the prototype of Shakespeare’s Oberon and who makes his literary debut in this work. Galopin delivers Elye to the healing hands of an emir’s daughter, Rosamonde, who saves his life. In return he saves her from an unsuitable marriage with a Saracen elder. For this Elye is again attacked by Saracens, but he is finally rescued by his father Julien, William of Orange, and King Louis.
In the end the Saracen lands are converted, Rosamonde and Galopin are married, all make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, and Elye is married at Paris to Avisse, the sister of King Louis, and he becomes the king’s seneschal.
"Elye of Saint-Gilles" is the first English translation of the Old French chanson de geste and includes a new critical edition, facing the English text. This work encapsulates many of the standard elements of the French chanson de geste and provides an excellent example of the virtues of this literary form for entertainment and instruction.
The sole manuscript containing Elye, and its companion piece Aiol, is found in the 1405 inventory of the library of Margaret of Flanders, duchess of Valois, whose family had been deeply involved as key figures in the First and Fourth Crusades and the Reconquest of Spain. In the late twelfth and thirteenth centuries, the court of Flanders was also a dynamic center of literary activity unrivalled in production by either Champagne or Paris.
Dual-language edition. First English translation. Introduction, bibliography, notes, index.

Consumed with clutter?
Despaired by disorganisation?
Embarrassed by the enormity of it all?
Don’t feel overwhelmed any longer. Start the New Year clutter-free and organised!
Has this ever happened to you? The doorbell rings:
You open your door to a friend or worse - your mother-in-law! She walks into your home, casually looking around, taking in the state of your home. If your home is in great shape, you feel fine. But if it's a mess, you feel embarrassed. It happens every day, in many homes all over the world. Do you know how these people feel?
Many people have a clutter problem. Becoming clutter-free and organised is one of the subjects I am most passionate about.
After years of seeking different solutions and making my way through many tips, websites and books, I decided to put my knowledge together in a comprehensive eBook on the subject: The Essential Guide to Declutter and Organise Your Home.
There is nothing in this world that feels quite the same as looking around your home and seeing it uncluttered and organised. And there's nothing more energy-draining than living with clutter.

The effect of decluttering your home will open doors for you in your personal life and career. The stress will ease and your confidence will return. Things start to fall into place in every area of your life when you declutter your surroundings.
And this is why I have written the eBook: The Essential Guide to Declutter and Organise Your Home.

It showed me that with a few easy practical steps I can make better use of our small space and organise my business and our personal paperwork so that it doesn't clutter up my mind. I always thought that I was pretty organised but your e-book provided me with invaluable advice and inspiration to improve my clutter situation dramatically." Samantha, Brisbane, Australia.

A “stunning blend of reportage, travelogue, history and meditation” by the New York Times–bestselling author of King Leopold’s Ghost (Publishers Weekly).
National Book Award finalist Adam Hochschild brings a lifetime’s familiarity with South Africa to bear in this eye-opening examination of a critical turning point in that nation’s history: the Great Trek of 1836–39, during which Dutch-speaking white settlers, known as Boers, journeyed deep into the country’s interior to escape the British colonial administration.
The mass migration culminated with the massacre of indigenous Zulus in the 1838 Battle of Blood River. Looking at the tensions of modern South Africa through the dramatic prism of the nineteenth century, Hochschild vividly recreates the battle—and its contentious commemoration by rival groups 150 years later. In his epilogue, Hochschild extends his view to the astonishing political changes that have occurred in the country in recent decades—and the changes yet to be made.
Hochschild’s incisive take on these events, noted Nadine Gordimer, “is far more than an outsider’s perception of the drama of our country. Read him, in particular, to understand the rise of white extremism which is threatening the democratic vision of the African National Congress and its allied progressive constituency among people of all colors.”
“A good book for anyone who wants a succinct and precise account of how this fascinating country has got where it is. . . . This is a book I recommend warmly.” —Archbishop Desmond Tutu
“One of the most illuminating books ever written on contemporary South Africa.” —Publishers Weekly
“Thoroughly researched, immensely readable . . . A work of vivid reportage and astute political analysis.” —San Francisco Chronicle

The just resolution of the Palestinian right of return is at the very
heart of the Middle East peace process. Nonetheless, the Obama administration
intends to impose a comprehensive peace settlement upon the
Palestinians that will force them to give up their well-recognized right of
return under United Nations General Assembly Resolution 194(III)) of 1948;
accept a Bantustan of disjointed and surrounded chunks of territory on the
West Bank in Gaza; and even expressly recognize Israel as “the Jewish
State,â€ as newly demanded by Benjamin Netanyahu. All this will fail for the
reasons so powerfully and eloquently stated in this book.
For the past three decades, Francis A. Boyle has provided the
leadership of the Palestinian people with advice, counsel, and representation
at all stages of the Middle East Peace Process. Here, he elaborates
what the Palestinians must now do to realize their international legal right
of return, in keeping with his startling perception of Israel as itself nothing
more than a Jewish Bantustan bound for failure.
While an enormous amount of scholarly literature has been generated
affirming the Palestinian right of return under international law, none
is as authentic, powerful, personal, or convincing.

En 2008, une des principales banques de Wall Street fait brutalement faillite, entrainant une crise financière sans précédent qui menace d'emporter les économies occidentales. C'est ce moment que choisit un groupe terroriste, piloté depuis un insurgé Afghan qui cherche à exporter le conflit, pour frapper de façon aveugle le centre de Londres, en plein G8. Des prises d'otages sanglantes. Des cibles prestigieuses et symboliques sont atteintes. Leurs proches jurent vengeance.
Parmi elles, le Président des Etats-Unis, confronté à une crise aux multiples fronts (économique, sociale) et à une recrudescence des attentats terroristes va mobiliser les forces de son pays pour traduire les responsables devant les tribunaux. Il s'appuiera sur les services de renseignements britanniques et sur les forces spéciales qui avaient mené les assauts contre les preneurs d'otages.
Mais parmi les victimes également, Michael Bryan, gestionnaire de l'un des hedge funds les plus secrets mais aussi des plus prestigieux. Atteint au plus profond de son être, il recherchera la vérité et n'aura de cesse que d'identifier les auteurs et instigateurs réels de ces attaques. Et il disposera d'armes sans doutes plus efficaces que celles de la justice. Sa parfaite connaissance des milieux financiers et de ses acteurs. Et il découvrira que les donneurs d'ordres sont parmi ses propres connaissances. Avec lui, Sarah Bullit, enquêtrice de Scotland Yard et Robert Black, membre de l'une des unités anti-terroristes les plus secrètes du monde, la Delta Force.
Mais quelle sera cette vérité ? Derrière les exécutants, se dissimule une réalité effroyable. Un plan à même de changer en profondeur l'équilibre géostratégique et d'embraser tout un continent. De fils en aiguilles, cette vérité se fera jour, grâce aux efforts conjoints et parfois concurrents des services de renseignements et d'un homme blessé, seul. Jusqu'au dénouement final.
Titanium Alpha s'appuie sur des faits réels et plonge le lecteur au coeur des dispositifs de contre-terrorisme et de renseignement des pays occidentaux. Entre interceptions électroniques et forces spéciales, toutes les informations présentées sont réelles. Le fonctionnement des hedge funds et les données financières sont également véridiques. Tout pourrait se passer ainsi.
Fred Ray (pseudonyme) fut officier dans une unité opérationnelle de l'armée francaise rattachée aux forces spéciales - il est aujourd'hui banquier d'affaires à Londres.
Du même auteur, la série "Opération Granite Shadow", suivi de "Kill or Capture". "Titanium Alpha - Who Dares Wins" peut paradoxalement être vu comme la suite de ces romans, ou comme un "reboot" indépendant, avec plusieurs personnages communs. L'imagination d'un auteur dépend également de l'actualité. Et hélas, entre les romans, le monde a changé. Les perspectives se sont assombries. Les dangers exacerbés. Ce sont ces nouveaux dangers que ces fictions essaient de capturer. Elles restent des fictions. Jusqu'à aujourd'hui encore...
