There's a witch hunt underway in Destiny, Florida, and the truth is bound to get trampled underfoot...because sometimes the facts lie. Joanna's preconceptions about "church people" are in for a radical overhaul when Jason and his rambunctious crew of teenagers descend on her little country village in hurricane-ravaged Jamaica, bent on restoring not only her Nana's roofless cottage, but Joanna's faith in God. Drawn to the intriguing young daydreamer so out of sync with her environment, Jason dreads leaving her behind. So when a door miraculously opens for her in his hometown of Destiny, he helps her muster the courage to walk through it...and into a carefully laid trap certain to pit them against each other. An orphaned heart yearning for its roots. Political operatives determined to unearth them. A man and his faith, caught in between. At a point south of Destiny, their paths all collide...and send shock waves rippling from Destiny to D.C. and beyond.
Often described as the soul of Islam, Sufism is one of the most interesting yet least known facet of this global religion. Sufism is the softer more inclusive and mystical form of Islam. Although militant Islamists dominate the headlines, the Sufi ideal has captured the imagination of many. Nowhere in the world is the handprint of Sufism more observable than South Asia, which has the largest Muslim population of the world, but also the greatest concentration of Sufis. This book examines active Sufi communities in Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh that shed light on the devotion, and deviation, and destiny of Sufism in South Asia. Drawn from extensive work by indigenous and international scholars, this ethnographical study explores the impact of Iran on the development of Sufi thought and practice further east, and also discusses Sufism in diaspora in such contexts as the UK and North America and Iran's influence on South Asian Sufism.
As the population of the 13 colonies grew and the economy developed, the desire to expand into new land increased. Nineteenth-century Americans believed it was their divine right to expand their territory from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific. "Manifest destiny," a phrase first used in 1839 by journalist John O'Sullivan, embodied the belief that God had given the people of the United States a mission to spread a republican democracy across the continent. Advocates of manifest destiny were determined to carry out their mission and instigated several wars, including the war with Mexico to win much of what is now the southwestern United States. In Manifest Destiny: Westward Expansion, learn how this philosophy to spread out across the land shaped our nation.
At the same moment, God issued a separate call to two men---prophet Chuck Pierce and pastor Dutch Sheets---to heal the United States. As a prophetic act to realign our country to His covenant plan, the duo rallied apostles, prophets and intercessors from state-to-state to break the grip of demonic strongholds. Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation is the remarkable story behind their 50-state roadtrip to restore revival to America. Endowed with God-given keys of authority to reconcile America to its heavenly mandate, the two chronicle their efforts to purge the land of territorial and generational sin. Now is the time and season for a warfare anointing to rest upon America.
A Different Manifest Destiny traces the way southerners capitalized on Latin American connections to promote visions of modernity compatible with slave labor from the antebellum to the Civil War era.
Before this book first appeared in 1963, most historians wrote as if the continental expansion of the United States were inevitable. "What is most impressive," Henry Steele Commager and Richard Morris declared in 1956, "is the ease, the simplicity, and seeming inevitability of the whole process." The notion of inevitability, however, is perhaps only a secular variation on the theme of the expansionist editor John L. O'Sullivan, who in 1845 coined one of the most famous phrases in American history when he wrote of "our manifest destiny to overspread the continent allotted by Providence for the free development of our yearly multiplying millions." Frederick Merk rejected inevitability in favor of a more contingent interpretation of American expansionism in the 1840s. As his student Henry May later recalled, Merk "loved to get the facts straight." --From the Foreword by John Mack Faragher
In his book Colonial Mentality and the Destiny of Africa, Godfrey Mwakikagile examines the negative impact of colonial mentality on Africa's well-being as a continental crisis and how it impedes Africa's progress and the quest for an African renaissance.
