The Iron Heel - The Original Classic Edition
The Iron Heel - The Original Classic Edition

the iron heel is an eye opener to all those who recall the potential of a government funded infrastructure failure.
what makes the story so amazing is it is told from the point of view of a woman in love ... with a man named Ernest Everhard
... it would be my guess that certain drug companies would like to have that fellow as a spokesman for their product
wonderful story ... hey all you tree hugging lefties ... your represented in this tale of de-evolution
hey all you righty is mighty sorts ... you are detailed ... the religious and the agnostic on equal footing .. that is none
read it and weep baby ...

lifting the veil and showing one the magic behind the scenes ... offering the reader the secure knowledge that this "magic" is available to them through a realization of faith...
i have re-read Sermon on the Mount several times and been refreshed each time...
Caution this book discusses God stuff.
Warning previously held ideas about God will be challenged and altered.
This aint Sunday school baby ... but if your Sunday school teacher is worth their salt then they likely have a copy of Sermon on the Mount squirreled away

The Ten Commandments by Emmet Fox

laston lastof, February 10, 2008

Emmett Fox is the perfect next author if you have already tossed your ISBN: 0310210747 into the trash can.

Emmett Fox is the perfect next author if you found ISBN 0310931274 or ISBN 0310917255 too hard to fully understand.

Emmett Fox is the perfect next author if you have been eschewed by those espousing ISBN:0812975235.

Emmett Fox will take your spiritual life to places you have been warned by churches not to go into. The LAND of the METAPHYSICAL.
