Worlds To Conquer

In any event he could always get more of the stuff whenever it was needed. ...
Probably he was one of the richest men in the world. ... So, for the time being,
Mark came to a halt, surprised to find that there were no more worlds left to
conquer.

Claire Escott had ignored her father's warning against involvement with her fiancé Mark Rowland. However, she little realised the extent of the scientist's corroding ambition when he invents a method of matter transmission. And it was not long after their marriage that Rowland's ruthless pursuit of a scientific empire encompassed a horri­fying murder. But that was only the start of things. Mark's scientific genius and obsessive ambition to go one step further eventually led to the conquest of space, culminating in the mass destruc­tion of an interstellar war!

In the spring of 73 AD the rock fortress of Masada on the western shore of the Dead Sea was the site of an event that was breathtaking in its courage and self-sacrifice. Here the last of the Jewish Zealots who, for nearly eight years, had waged war against the Roman occupiers of their country made their last stand. The Zealots on Masada had withstood a two-year siege but with Roman victory finally assured, they were faced by two options: capture or death. They chose the latter and when the Roman legions forced their way into the hill fort the following morning they were met only with utter silence by row upon row of bodies. Rather than fall into enemy hands the 960 men, women and children who had defended the fortress so heroically had committed suicide. The story of the siege and eventual capture of Masada is unique, not just in Israeli legend but in the history of the world. It is a story of bravery that even the Roman legionaries, well used to death and brutality, could see and appreciate. It was a massacre but a massacre with a difference: carried out by the victims themselves. The story of Masada has gone down in Israeli and Jewish folklore. It is little known elsewhere and it is time to redress the balance.

LIFE CHANGING THOUGHTS is a book difficult to put down. One moment you will find yourself laughing; the next moment, you find yourself in deep meditation. The book contains thousands of inspiring, life changing, worshipful and humorous thoughts. There are nearly 700 pages with almost 500 different topics categorized alphabetically. Some of the book's topics are God and the Bible, character, faith, fullness, the family and home, leadership, patriotic thoughts, prayer and victorious living. The book even contains great seasonal thoughts for thanksgiving, Christmas and the Resurrection. As a young man, the author began collecting life-changing thoughts for his own personal use. It was not long until he was using the thoughts and poems within his own writings and sermons. Over a thirty-five year period, the collection of inspiring thoughts grew from only a few to number into the thousands. As the collection grew so did the author's ability to compose and write his own thoughts and poems. Many of these are included within this book. The book is a great resource for pastors, teachers, speechmakers, communicators and leaders. You will find the life-changing thoughts beneficial for your own edification and enjoyment. In addition, the book provides you with a wealth of inspiring and motivating thoughts to share with other people. The author hopes you are blessed by reading and sharing these thoughts, as he has been from compiling and writing them. "A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good it is!" (KJV, Proverbs 15:23)
