Angels, Elephants and Ants

by Jack Florentin

Jack Florentin is a successful entrepreneur, and the son of Holocaust survivors. As co-founder and CEO of Sarah Lawrence S.A., he has introduced major fashion brands in Europe, while expanding his business exponentially. His story provides a rare glimpse into one man’s struggle to survive in a tumultuous business environment; at the same time avoiding being crushed by the threat of “elephants,” or competitors. In addition, his experiences offer insight into the lives of Thessaloniki Jews who survived Auschwitz, and into the lives of their children. Through the help of “angels” — his therapist, friends and family — Jack affirms the values essential to the three cultures he identifies with: Sephardic, Greek, and American. And when faced with the spectre of failure, Jack overcam...

The Cossacks (Illustrated)

by

Cossacks are a group of predominantly East Slavic-speaking people who became known as members of democratic, self-governing, semi-military communities, predominantly located in Ukraine and in Russia. They inhabited sparsely populated areas and islands in the lower Dnieper, Don, Terek, and Ural river basins and played an important role in the historical and cultural development of both Russia and Ukraine. By the end of the 18th century, Cossack nations had been transformed into a special military estate (Sosloviye), "a military class," similar to the knights of medieval Europe in feudal times.In The Cossacks, William Penn Cresson traces the history and culture of these legendary Slavic warriors. ...

The Bible Answer Man: Walter Martin and Hank Hanegraaff: Dr. Martin's Daughter Reflects on CRI's Founder, Its History, and Its Current President

by Cindee Martin Morgan

This book, while containing relevant biographical information, is not a biography of Walter Martin. It highlights the ministry God raised up through Walter Martin almost six decades ago, the Christian Research Institute (CRI), and unpacks some of its triumphs and trials. It is a daughter’s reflections on seasons of her father’s life — both public and private — and is, in a limited sense, a memoir. It answers many questions, such as: What was it like to have Walter Martin as a father? (This is the question I am asked most frequently.) Was Walter Martin a dispensationalist, like his friend Hal Lindsey? Why was Walter Martin not invited back on the Trinity Broadcasting Network? What happened, behind the scenes, when he debated America’s most infamous atheist, Madalyn Murray O’Hair...

Our Two Societies

by Andre Davis

This is a true story about the author’s discovery of two different societies alive and well in America; and their influences on all American life. This journey goes from life in Detroit’s projects in the 1970’s, teenage years in a Detroit middle-class neighborhood in the 1980’s, to life as an Afro-American living in Japan in the 1990’s, to life as a law school student in the year 2000. The perspectives gained from people, relationships, places and cultures within this book provides a refreshing look at race relations, the modern day black identity and its acceptance at home and abroad without the typical negative rhetoric. This story was written for Americans regardless of race, creed, color or national origin. It is a celebration of the possibilities that one society provides an...

JONES COUNTY COUSINS: LAVONNE OWEN MEMORIES

by Phillip Owen

This book is dedicated in memory of my wife LaVonne Louse (Harms) Owen. During her lifetime she had written topical notes of her memories and family history, intending to use the information to write the story of her life. I’ll use six words in remembrance of LaVonne Louse (Harms) Owen: “Went There, Done That, Had Fun”. Family history of LaVonne’s mother and father can be traced the 1500s in Germany. Churches in Germany were record keepers for each community in Europe; church records are the most reliable source to verify family history for birth, baptism, marriage and death. LaVonne’s distant cousin, Gail Mauer, a descendent Hillie Maria (Harms) Iben visited Germany and searched church records. Gail found the Harms surname as common in Germany as Smith is today in America. Gail...
