Overview: "A deeply inspiring overview of the grand epic of cosmic, biological, and cultural evolution written for Christians and grounded in scientific revelation. Bravo!" ~ Michael Dowd, author of Thank God for Evolution What would the biblical creation story look like if it was written today?

Seven Glorious Days takes the reader on a grand ride through the history of the universe from the Big Bang, to the origin of stars and planets, to the appearance of living creatures bearing the image of God. The narrative is accessible, lively and faith-affirming. Readers worried about the tension between science and religion will welcome their harmonious convergence in this timely and provocative book.

The Glorious Revolution: 1688 by Edward Vallance

The Glorious Revolution: 1688: Britain’s Fight for Liberty by Edward Vallance
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.5 MB
Overview: Heeding the call of England’s ruling class, the Dutch Prince William of
Orange landed with a massive invasion force and within six weeks
expelled the Catholic King James II in 1688. In what was largely
heralded as a bloodless revolution, William and his English wife Mary,
James II’s Protestant daughter, were crowned joint monarchs, accepting
the Declaration of Rights that affirmed Parliament’s ancient rights. It
was a turning point in Britain’s march toward universal suffrage and
liberties. But as acclaimed historian Edward Vallance reveals, the
Glorious Revolution was characterized by warfare and bloody massacre
(especially for Catholics and Irishmen), affected the rights of the
common man in ways traditional histories have ignored, and engaged the
British populace in the affairs of government as never before. A
thriller-paced book-rich in seventeenth-century first-person accounts of
the bloodshed and political machinations of the period-that turns every
debate about this great historical event on its head.
