The most fascinating story that a man could write is that kind which deals with history that God has shaped. And Cyrus the Persian is that kind of a story, intensely alive and absorbing, because it is drawn from the history of the Jewish people up to the time of their delivery under Cyrus the Great, King of the Medes and the Persians. In recreating this captivating story, Mr. Nagel has "let in the romantic charm of ancient Babylon, and the mystic enchantment of the far east,". He has show us what inspiring heroism grows from faith in the Lord who continually shapes the destinies of His own.

In Search of Zarathustra: Across Iran and Central Asia to Find the World's First Prophet - eBookPaul KriwaczekVintage / 2007 / ePub$13.99Availability: In StockCBD Stock No: WW11433EB
Long before the first Hebrew temple, before the birth of Christ or the mission of Muhammad, there lived in Persia a prophet to whom we owe the ideas of a single god, the cosmic struggle between good and evil, and the Apocalypse. His name was Zarathustra, and his teachings eventually held sway from the Indus to the Nile and spread as far as Britain.
Following Zarathustra's elusive trail back through time and across the Islamic, Christian, and Jewish worlds, Paul Kriwaczek uncovers his legacy at a wedding ceremony in present-day Central Asia, in the Cathar heresy of medieval France, and among the mystery cults of the Roman empire.
He explores pre-Muslim Iran and Central Asia, ultimately bringing us face-to-face with the prophet himself, a teacher whose radical humility shocked and challenged his age, and whose teachings have had an enduring effect on Western thought. The result is a tour of travel and historical inquiry by an adventurer in the classic tradition.
