From the best-selling, award-winning author of 1491 and 1493--an incisive portrait of the two little-known twentieth-century scientists, Norman Borlaug and William Vogt, whose diametrically opposed views shaped our ideas about the environment, laying the groundwork for how people in the twenty-first century will choose to live in tomorrow's world. In forty years, Earth's population will reach ten billion. Can our world support that? What kind of world will it be? Those answering these questions generally fall into two deeply divided groups--Wizards and Prophets, as Charles Mann calls them in this balanced, authoritative, nonpolemical new book. The Prophets, he explains, follow William Vogt, a founding environmentalist who believed that in using more than our planet has to give, our prosperity will lead us to ruin. Cut back! was his mantra. Otherwise everyone will lose! The Wizards are the heirs of Norman Borlaug, whose research, in effect, wrangled the world in service to our species to produce modern high-yield crops that then saved millions from starvation. Innovate! was Borlaug's cry. Only in that way can everyone win! Mann delves into these diverging viewpoints to assess the four great challenges humanity faces--food, water, energy, climate change--grounding each in historical context and weighing the options for the future. With our civilization on the line, the author's insightful analysis is an essential addition to the urgent conversation about how our children will fare on an increasingly crowded Earth.

Almustafa, the chosen and the beloved, who was a dawn unto his own day, had waited twelve years in the city of Orphalese for his ship that was to return and bear him back to the isle of his birth. And in the twelfth year, on the seventh day of Ielool, the month of reaping, he climbed the hill without the city walls and looked seaward; and he beheld his ship coming with the mist. Then the gates of his heart were flung open, and his joy flew far over the sea. And he closed his eyes and prayed in the silences of his soul. So begins The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran's transcendant verse cycle in which the prophet Almustafa boards a ship bearing him homeward and discusses with those whom he meets on board life, love, and and all aspects of the human condition. Never out of print since its first publication in 1923, Gibran's collection of prose poems is one of the best-loved volumes in world literature.

Compiled in the 14th century AD by a prominent Syrian scholar, the al-sira al-Nabawiyya of Ibn Kathir is a full examination in chronological order, of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Drawn from the earliest and most reliable Arabic sources, it offers, in this close English translation, the fullest available account of the historical circumstances and personalities most important in the founding of Islam. Ibn Kathir's work offers a fine example of Islamic scholarship; the quotations and anecdotes that constitute its core are evaluated in terms of the trustworthiness of their sources. Variant wordings that are related through differing lines of transmission are noted, and Ibn Kathir gives both his own assessments and those of the earliest Islamic authorities concerning the likely authenticity of these records. The comments and conversations, derived from ancient texts, that are quoted in this work constitute the basis of our knowledge of Islam during the lifetime of its founder. Volume 2 (of this 4 volume series) Looks at the early years of the Prophethood and includes such episodes at the Night Journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and the ascent to Heaven the Prophets marriages to Aisha(ra) and Sawda (ra) and the emigration to Madina. It gives details of events in the two years following the emigration, including the building of the Holy Mosques and various military expeditions and reveals how Islam as a faith developed.

The Qur’an, which should be the primary source about the life of Mohammed (Muhammad), does not provide any detail about him, as opposed to the Torah or the Gospels which contain narratives about Moses or Jesus. In the Qur’an, biographical and narrative elements are uncommon. Muslims conceive it as a divine revelation. Nevertheless there are some stories about the life of Mohammed and his great importance (Quran: 2,151; 2,213; 4,15-19; 13,38 etc…). The biography of Mohammed can be retraced through other sources, the Sunna and the Hadith, that hold memories of the prophet. There are also ancient biographies edited after his death. In particular, Ibn Ishaq (704-768) collected oral traditions on the life of the prophet Mohammed known as The life of Muhammad; his work had been edited by Ibn Hisam (833 AD) and al’Tabari (839- 923 AD). Starting from these sources it is possible to trace a good historical background of Mohammed’s life. Translated by Roberta Ridolfi

BACK COVER The sequel to the Jaredite's Civilization (What the Prophet Ether couldn't Tell Us) is finally out. Book III to shortly follow. Book II tells of the life and times of the Jaredites, the greatest civilization to have ever lived on Planet Earth. It details their earliest beginnings, and enumerates some of their many achievements and accomplishments. It is first mentioned within the Book of Mormon, in Ether 1:42-44. Ether was later directed by God to remove everything about them save for their earliest beginnings at the Tower of Babel, in Iraq, and a few brief tales of their spiritual trials and wars, up to their final Civil War. Mainstream Archaeology refuses to address this civilization because it would reveal Archaeology's canards about evolution and their false narrative about the Origin of Man. The Jaredites settled and colonized South and North America, Lemuria, Antarctica, The British Isles and most of western Europe, plus the lands of China and India. For nearly 2,530-years, they maintained a world-wide civilization. My research has uncovered many details of Jaredite life and their physical characteristics that the prophet Ether was not allowed to tell us. They built all of Egypt. Their Hindu colony fought at least two internal nuclear wars. They colonized throughout our entire Solar System; most moons and all the planets have their cities, mainly covered by 7-mile high glass domes, except Jupiter and Saturn. These two planets each have possible Star War-size "moons" that could be artificial space stations. Mars used to be a moon to its now exploded primary, which is now the Asteroid Belt. Their Martian cities are so immense that New York City and Shanghai combined wouldn't be considered a nickel in a handful of change in comparison to them. Jaredite leftovers are all over Earth if one knows when to look for them. Book III details a few of their many wars, as well as their final Civil War, the first year or two which were nuclear. Through their longevity, they were able to develop their physics to the point to where they could control the weather, as well as to weaponize its component parts. And their final, long prophesied death.

The Book of Nathan the Prophet and the Book of Gad the Seer

Tied together now into One Book are The Book of Nathan The Prophet, and The Book of Gad The Seer. They are referred to in 1 Chronicles 29:29 which is given as follows: Now the acts of David the King first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Samuel the Seer, and in the book of Nathan the Prophet, and in the book of Gad the Seer, 1 Chronicles 21:11, 12. 11 So Gad came to Dauid, and said vnto him, Thus saith the Lord, Choose thee 12 Either three yeeres famine, or three moneths to bee destroyed before thy foes (while that the sword of thine enemies ouertaketh thee) or else three dayes the sword of the Lord, euen the pestilence in the land, and the Angel of the Lord destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. Now therefore aduise thy selfe, what word I shall bring againe to him that sent me. First power of the two witnesses in Revelation 11:6 compared to the first power of Gad the seer in 1 Chronicles 21:12. In Revelation 11:6 a lack of rain is the first power that the two witnesses were given. In 1 Chronicles 21:12 Gad can cause a famine to fall upon David's kingdom. A lack of rain would cause a famine. So being able to make it not rain is the same thing as being able to cause a famine. So here we See that the first power in Revelations 11:6 which the two witnesses possess, is the same first power that Gad possesses in 1 Chronicles 21:12. Second power of the two witnesses in Revelation 11:6 compared to the second power of Gad the seer in 1 Chronicles 21:12. This is a matter of comparing the power to turn water into blood, or let us paraphrase this for the sake of understanding it, the second power in Revelation 11:6 to turn water into blood can be better translated as the power to make puddles of blood, pools of blood, ponds of blood, rivers of blood, streams of blood, oceans of blood, lakes of blood, to spill so much blood that there would literally be a FLOOD of BLOOD. Now comparing that second power the two witnesses have in Revelation 11:6 to the second power that Gad had in 1 Chronicles 21:12 which was three moneths to bee destroyed before thy foes (while that the sword of thine enemies ouertaketh thee) we can See that if the enemies of David's kingdom had pursued to overtake David's kingdom for three months long by the sword of it's enemies, so much blood would have been shed constantly for three months that there would have literally been a BLOOD FLOOD. We can See here again that the second power of the two witnesses in Revelation 11:6 is the same power as the second power Gad had in 1 Chronicles 21:12. And the Third power of the two witnesses in Revelation 11:6 compared to the third power of Gad the seer in 1 Chronicles 21:12 are also exactly the same power. The third power of the two witnesses in Revelation 11:6 is the power to cause plagues. The third power of Gad the seer in 1 Chronicles 21:12 is the power to cause a pestilence. A plague and a pestilence are the same thing. Now many of the secret sins which king David committed were sins of sodomy. See 2 Samuel 1:26 which is given as follows: I am distressed for thee, my brother Ionathan, very pleasant hast thou beene vnto mee: thy loue to mee was wonderfull, passing the loue of women. That was king David speaking of the love that he had between him and Jonathan. Note that even the type of love a man might have for his brother-man is not ever compared to the type of love that men have for women. In other words, a strait man, would not say that the love another man has for him is wonderful, passing the love of women. Only an effeminate one might say it that way. Note: We are not bashing a man of the past. We are exposing a spirit that is here among us right now in our time. This is why Nathan the prophet and Gad the seer were killed by king David. It is because they exposed king David for committing Sodomy. And this is why Revelation 11:8 states that the two witnesses were killed in a city which spiritually is called Sodom. Sodom symbolizing Sod

Could an ancient prophet hold a present key that will reveal the future? Jeremiah was an Old Testament voice, but he still speaks to our day. Alone and living in a time of chaos, he was a prophet and Levitical priest whose fellow priests and prophets wanted him dead. In fact, everyone wanted him dead--the political leaders, his neighbors, and even his family. At twenty-three years old Jeremiah was told to speak truth to power and not to worry what the consequences may be. God told him that people love to praise the Lord but refuse to do what He says. In spite of the judgments cascading upon the heads of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Lord promised a new covenant with Israel and Judah that would revolutionize their walk with Him. In Decoding the Prophet Jeremiah you will discover the following: The warnings from God in Jeremiah's day are for our generation as well. Even when you feel betrayed by everyone, there is still hope. God keeps His covenant and will never leave you or forsake you. This book is a clarion call to all believers. We need to see the bigger picture: it is not about us but about God's heart and God's kingdom. God is looking for warriors who are about advancing His kingdom by storming the gates of hell and setting His sons and daughters free from the clutches of the greatest narcissist of all time. Mark Biltz unpacks two books of the Bible written by the prophet Jeremiah: the Book of Lamentations and the Book of Jeremiah. Biltz has uncovered fascinating Hebraic codes within Lamentations, making this a truly unique message for readers. This book will encourage you to persevere in your faith despite cultural shifts and pressures, much like what the prophet Jeremiah did.
