God's War on Terror: Islam, Prophecy and the Bible by Walid Shoebat
God's War on Terror: Islam, Prophecy and the Bible

Darahlee10, September 2, 2013

Walid Shoebat was born and raised in Bethlehem, Israel by an Arab father and an American mother. Walid grew up a terrorist, married a Christian woman and was challenged to examine the Bible and compare it with the Quran. Walid confessed, “Only bible truth has transferred my way of thinking from being a follower of Muhammad and idolizing Adolph Hitler to believing in Jesus Christ.” Walid Shoebat is the founder of the Walid Shoebat Foundation, to bring the truth about the bible. He has addressed the most prestigious universities, and government agencies, appeared in the Media in the USA and internationally. His book is well researched, very interesting and well written.

This book covers the comparisons of Biblical and Quran text with respect to minor historical border changes for location of modern country names. There are verified bible leadership roles of countries from past to present, taking shape from military and goals set by internal motivations. Discussed sentiments on the rise clearly give direction to unify through imposed terms. This well written book can clarify the subject of religion through a history and its future projections.

3001: The Final Odyssey

Darahlee10, August 19, 2013

Lords of the galaxy rove at will as energy with no body restraints. Never human they did seek fellowship in the stars with the power they possessed. They encountered life throughout the worlds and watched the faint sparks of intelligence die in the great cosmos. Planting life they valued mind above all. They reaped and weeded life forms dispassionately. Ages had passed as they returned to earth they began to study, catalog and modify the destiny of life forms. Now they set goals of their own, not being immune to the corruptions of time they use memory. Their indifference through science may exclude plans for a future. This well written book endures time and steps into the future with striking insight.

Situations become unbearable for him and he stumbles upon his new friend Lettie. “Children as I have said, use back ways and hidden paths while adults take roads and official paths.” Suspense builds at each new turn of events. Common spells are replaced with recipes sometimes, his friend Lettie explains. Ursula begged Lettie to send her back while not looking even faintly human. Turning on Lettie and the main character Ursula becomes evil in her deadly attack, using ancient deceptions. Lettie and the main character confront Ursula. This descriptive fable plays out courageous times in the lives of two determined children and their resourcefulness. Many demonic gripping dangers could win in this thrilling children’s story.
