Follow these 40 days of uplifting devotional readings. The words ‘essence of eternity’ are taken from a poem written by the author, whose last verse reads, “Moment by moment give your grace That I may fragrant be, To permeate the courts of time With essence of eternity.” Reading these words, Dr. Harold Berk, former Academic Dean of Detroit Bible College, said, “That wraps up what the Christian life is all about. The eternal Spirit of God is at work, infusing time-limited humanity with hope and non-ending Life!” In this delightfully personal book, Mavis shares reflections and experiences from home life and Christian ministry in the UK and in Brazil. Mavis is an active member her local country chapel. In her spare time she reads, paints, writes poetry and walks on the beach.

Ken Follett's extraordinary historical epic, the Century Trilogy, reaches its sweeping, passionate conclusion. In Fall of Giants and Winter of the World, Ken Follett followed the fortunes of five international families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—as they made their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements, and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution—and rock and roll. East German teacher Rebecca Hoffmann discovers she’s been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for the rest of their lives. . . . George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F. Kennedy's Justice Department and finds himself in the middle of not only the seminal events of the civil rights battle but a much more personal battle of his own. . . . Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator, jumps at the chance to do some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is a much more dangerous place than he'd imagined. . . . Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes an agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tanya, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw—and into history.
