If truth is suppressed, can liberty survive? The Scripture is fairly clear: “And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” An angry teenager, A.J. Franklin, battles doubt and confusion, trying to reconnect with his secure childhood. His sister and others try to help him overcome past hurts, at times to no avail. “Oh, right, forgiveness! Sure, just like that! Forget it ever happened!” “No, A.J., I didn’t say forget!” Searching for the essence of liberty while sifting through societal erosion, A.J. wrestles with the tenets of bondage and liberty. Voices, past and present, tug at his innermost being. Only when he is completely yielded is he able to discern between the two, allowing him to choose the one that sweeps him toward his date with destiny.

Meanwhile, she'll settle for raising babies with her new husband, Donny. But that dream proves elusive too, until finally, Mary Dell gets the son she always wanted--a child as different as he is wonderful.

This book is a study of Far from Heaven, a commercially successful film that nevertheless sits rather ambiguously on the boundary between independent and mainstream cinema, operating as an alternative to 'blockbuster' fare.
Classifying films by genre is useful, to a point. But how do you describe films with intersecting or shifting genres? One moment comedy may rule, then tragedy, horror, sci-fi, kung fu, film noir, the Western or a combination of these. This work celebrates these hybrid films for their ability to both understand and subvert genres.

In the year 1833, two young brothers journey into the Wild West to seek their fortune; little do they know they’re embarking on the adventure of their lives. Expecting to stumble upon riches as they make their way westward, sixteen-year-old Dillon Griffith and his older brother Owen instead encounter hardship after hardship in the form of Indian raids, bloodthirsty villains, robbery, and kidnapping. With the help of a Shawnee trapper and scout, a runaway slave-turned–mountain man, and a beautiful American Indian warrior, the brothers battle the unexpected setbacks and obstacles that life in the West throws their way, and endeavor to find their place on the American frontier.Packed full of riveting action, gore, and vengeance, Deadville paints a thrilling—and historically pristine—picture of life in the Old West, from the physical environment to the social and economic milieus of frontier society. Jones’s famously meticulous research, inviting literary style, and suspenseful plot succeed in transporting readers to a time when lawlessness prevailed and buffalo roamed—when the belief in Manifest Destiny took America by storm and changed the country forever.
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. (Luke 10: 21) The Bible is a book of hidden treasures purposefully designed so by our God. Many of these hidden treasures are complex, yet they can be understood by ordinary people. Jesus likened this group of people to babes. One of the meanings of babes in Greek is simple-minded. God desires to open the windows of heaven and reveal the secrets of His Holy Word to you. If you consider yourself inept or too simple-minded to understand, then all the better! You are just Gods type, and yes, Hes looking for you. He will reveal to you even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory (1 Corinthians 2:7). Need more proof? Look at what God promises in Revelation 2:17: To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna. May you begin to eat of this hidden manna as you read Windows into the Third Heaven, and may this book be graciously used by the Spirit of God to whet your appetite for more.

This I can say to you, Dear Reader, is a story of love and marriage beyond the wonders that make of life a grand and incomprehensible mystery. Explain if you can, how a young, innocent Catholic girl in Madrid would become the wife of a naive, Protestant American traveler stopping-over in Madrid en route to Tehran, Iran. Explain if you can, how the Bishop of Madrid would condescend to grant a special dispensation for the first mixed Protestant-Catholic wedding to be held in a Catholic Church in Francos Spain in 1960. These matters can only be attributed to fate, chance, or the intervention of the Divine Hand. Nevertheless, those days and that adventure were as pure and fresh and exciting as only a youthful romantic can imagine. Those days I would like to hold on to. Those days I would like to tuck away in this book so that I can say: Look at our days, Dear Reader, days so bright and beautiful that I have kept to show to you so that you can see that we too loved life and treasured the moments that made up our days."
