This carefully crafted ebook: äóìTHE SECRET GLORY (The Holy Grail Quest)äó� is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. A public school boy becomes fascinated by tales of the Holy Grail and escapes from his repressive school in search of a deeper meaning to life. Machen concluded that the legends of the Grail actually were based on dim recollections of the rites of the Celtic Church. These ideas also featured strongly in The Secret Glory which he wrote at this time, marking the first use in fiction of the idea of the Grail's surviving into modern times in some form. Arthur Machen (1863-1947) was a Welsh author and mystic of the 1890s and early 20th century. He is best known for his influential supernatural, fantasy, and horror fiction.

Glimpses of Glory looks around the corners and peeks into the hidden places in life, places where deep spiritual truths reside but remain unseen. By sharing poems and prose that speak winsomely and insightfully of life’s realities, Peggy A. Keady offers a collection of Christmas Letters and Faith Notes that foster in its readers a desire to explore the themes of a rich life: beginnings, changes, companionship, new life, time, and trust. Perhaps because of her varied experiences working as an educator and counselor in public schools, churches, hospitals, and nursing-care facilities, the author found she was attuned to how the glimpses of glory she spotted in one place could be made visible to people in other places. As a result, she turned a series of annual Christmas letters and a run of monthly newsletter articles into Glimpses of Glory. If you yearn to learn more about how spiritual power can pervade and enrich your life, then you will find in Glimpses of Glory a guide for uncovering often overlooked spiritual truths. “An uplifting compilation of inspirational vignettes sure to calm the troubled spirit and renew faith in the eternity of the soul.” —Charlsie Russell, author and owner of Loblolly Writer’s House
