Egypt still captures our imagination. The pharaohs, the mummies, the pyramids - such are the subjects of much mystery and imagination, and some have direct correlation to biblical events. Abraham, Joseph, Moses and Jesus each spent part of their lives in Egypt. But how do the biblical accounts line up with historical and archaeological evidence for this empire?

By taking great pains in reconstructing the history and chronology of the entire sweep of Egyptian dynastic history John Ashton and David Down restore the timeline to its original place as a support for biblical history. Illustrated throughout with beautiful full-color photographs of artifacts, structures and art (along with a reproduction of the black and white photos from Zakaria Goneim's discoveries of the "Lost Pyramid" in the 1950's), Unwrapping the Pharaohs presents a wealth of information for anyone interested in these issues.

Western Christianity's longstanding support of Israel has certainly, but unintentionally, nurtured a bias against Arab people, traditionally tied to Abraham's first son, Ishmael. Lebanese Christian Tony Maalouf contends that this perspective differs dramatically from the biblical portrayal of Ishmael and the nations that have sprung from him.

By tracing the role of the Arab people throughout Scripture and prophetically into the final moments of history, Maalouf provides a much-needed understanding of a crucial contemporary issue and challenges Christians to think biblically about the complex issues of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Mary Lee Settle offers us an intimate portrait of a Turkey rarely seen-a land where the cutting of a tree is a crime, where goats are sacrificed to launch state-of-the-art ships,a nd where whole towns emerge at dusk to stroll in the streets. She finds ancient monasteries converted into discos, underground cities carved out of rock, and sleek jet-set yachts alongside camels piled high with copper pots. She follows in the footsteps of emperors and nomads, sultans and shepherds: explores the trails blazed by Alexander the Great, Tamerlane, Genghis Khan, and Ataturk. Turkish Reflections is a cross-country odyssey into history, legend, mystery, and myth. 233 pages, paperback.

On September 11, 2001, the world changed forever as more than three thousand men, women, and children lost their lives in the deadliest terrorist attack on Americal soil. The attack was masterminded by Osama bin Laden and his Jihad group - an organization that CNN's terrorism analyst Peter Bergen calls Holy War, Inc. One of the few Western journalists to have interviewed bin Laden face-to-face, Bergen has produced the definitive book on the global Jihadist network, revealing:
  • How bin Laden lives, travels, and communicates with his "cells"
  • How his role in the crushing defeat of the Soviet Union in Afghanistan made him a hero to the Muslims all over the world
  • How the bombings of the American embassies in Africa and the USS Cole in Yemen were planned and executed
  • What we can expect from Islamic extremists in the future

    Above all, Peter Bergen helps us to see bin Laden's organization in a radically new light: as a corporation that has exploited modern technology and weaponry in the service of global terrorism and the destruction of the West.

    Persecution in the News

    India Christians
    Forced to Flee


    In India's West Bengal state, local Christians and missionaries faced death threats for their faith, according to Mission News Network. Fourteen members of a Gospel for Asia church were severely beaten and forced to leave their homes on July 10 [2008], after being accused of forcing conversions and bringing an illness on the village. The mob threatened to kill the believers if they remained in the village. Village leader Negesh Rai brought the matter to the attention of local police, which led to calls for his resignation by protesting villagers. On July 16, the believers were removed to a different area for safety.
