Orlando Mora has seen it all, right from childhood up to adulthood, all the trials and hardships that any man could have possibly encountered. Growing up in an abusive family and being subjected to physical and emotional torment, Mora engages in a tale that will surely captivate the hearts of his readers. He started off as a verbally and physically abused child and grew up into a life of bondage, of addiction to alcohol, drugs, and other worldly pleasures. He became lost and hopeless, until one day, when he discovers the beautiful and glorious Word of Christ through the Book of Mormon. Almost instantly, his life took a 180-degree turn for the better. Although imperfect in his relationship with the Lord, Mora claims to have overcome the temptations and roadblocks Satan has set up for him deliberately. Join Orlando Mora as he unveils a most inspiring story of how he has found life with the Lord to be the most pleasant and most fulfilling journey one could encounter. Filled with inspiration and the Word of God, this book exposes the trials and tribulations a normal human being, flawed as he may be, and how to defeat the games of Satan by divorcing him-for good.

We belong to a gullible, partly delusional/hallucinating, self-destructive species: Homo sapiens. First, we create the conditions for global catastrophes including epidemics by following unsustainable policies, and then, as we are hit—as the COVID-19 pandemic shows—we react often too late, confused and short-sighted. Hence, we badly need a new, evolved global vision/mission to steer away from our innate and self-destructive shortcomings and flaws. This book includes two parts. Book One tells my true/legendary story with the Green Man, describing how such a vision/mission was conceived. Book Two describes a tour de force beyond Homo sapiens’s current wisdom, ultimate meaning, and fixed destiny, leading to the abovementioned new, evolved vision for a future civilization, which will focus on saving us from ourselves.

On February 28, 2008, to great international surprise, the British Ministry of Defense released a statement acknowledging that Prince Harry, son of the late Princess Diana and third in line to the British throne, had secretly been deployed to Afghanistan. Subsequent reports revealed that the prince had killed up to thirty Taliban insurgents in directing at least three air strikes, and that he had helped Gurkha troops repel a ground attack of Taliban insurgents using a machine gun. On February 29, Prince Harry was withdrawn from the country with distinction via a covert SAS deployment. This is the amazing story of the first British royal to serve his country in 25 years and his 10 heroic weeks of combat.

Preaching from Inside the Story

As a result, the parable is still a narrative about real people doing real things in real situations ... even if the parable is just a story. is reality about stories is one of the most signicant actualities about narratives.

Preaching from Inside the Story is a book that seeks to carve out an understanding of narrative preaching in an age where there is little agreement about its nature and practice. Capitalizing on the works of Craddock and Lowry, it seeks to find an expanded palette upon which the preacher may engage the larger canvas of narrative preaching. This book will engage the mind by introducing neuroscientific understandings of creativity; build upon the foundations of the philosophy of stories by engaging Aristotle’s foundational understanding of narrative; and renew the Lowry Loop by expanding this seminal work and how it should be understood in our current culture. Preaching from Inside the Story breaks new ground by encouraging preachers to move inside stories and tell them from the inside out providing a positive effect, thereby affording non-narrative preachers to connect with storytelling principles. Ultimately, it is filled with examples of how to do narrative in a very practical way. However, in showing these practical examples, the reader is involved in a deep analysis of those narrative sermons and how they fit into an overall narrative understanding of preaching. In the final analysis, it invites the reader to take a fresh journey into narrative preaching.

Autofiction, or works in which the eponymous author appears as a fictionalized character, represents a significant trend in postwar American literature, when it proliferated to become a kind of postmodern cliché. The Story of "Me" charts the history and development of this genre, analyzing its narratological effects and discussing its cultural implications. By tracing autofiction's conceptual issues through case studies and an array of texts, Marjorie Worthington sheds light on a number of issues for postwar American writing: the maleness of the postmodern canon--and anxieties created by the supposed waning of male privilege--the relationship between celebrity and authorship, the influence of theory, the angst stemming from claims of the "death of the author," and the rise of memoir culture. Worthington constructs and contextualizes a bridge between the French literary context, from which the term originated, and the rise of autofiction among various American literary movements, from modernism to New Criticism to New Journalism. The Story of "Me" demonstrates that the burgeoning of autofiction serves as a barometer of American literature, from modernist authorial effacement to postmodern literary self-consciousness.
