The Twelfth Imam by Joel C. Rosenberg Summary
2011 Retailers Choice Award winner! As the apocalyptic leaders of Iran call for the annihilation of Israel and the U.S., CIA operative David Shirazi is sent into Tehran with one objective: use all means necessary to disrupt Iran’s nuclear weapons program—without leaving American fingerprints, and without triggering a regional war. At extreme personal risk, Shirazi undertakes his assignment. A native Farsi speaker whose family escaped from Iran in 1979, he couldn’t be better prepared for the mission. But none of his training has prepared Shirazi for what will happen next. An obscure religious cleric is suddenly hailed throughout the region as the Islamic messiah known as the Mahdi or the Twelfth Imam. News of his miracles, healings, signs, and wonders, spread like wildfire, as do rumors of a new and horrific war. With the prophecy of the Twelfth Imam seemingly fulfilled, Iran’s leaders prepare to strike Israel and bring about the End of Days. Shirazi must take action, but the clock is ticking.
My Prayer Life by Glynn Owen Jones Summary
In the opening pages of this, my book, you will read as to why I took so much. time in deciding to write of my personal dealings with my Lord and Saviour. It began with a seed planted in my heart by my granddaughter Clare, it took two years to germinate then grew into a personal record of Gods unfailing love and His ever open and listening ear. I had not made any notes of my prayers, never dreaming that I would have to recall them in putting pen to paper as it were. I felt compelled to record so many prayers and answers that my readers would be drawn closer to The Saviour of the world; my Lord and Saviour that you might come to Know Him, Love Him, and invite personally into your heart and Life. The Lord Bless you and Keep you.
