Through The Wall Of Fire from the Author: Muriel Mirak-Weissbach. Can peoples and nations who have been pitted against each other in geopolitically manipulated conflict overcome the adversary relationship and achieve reconciliation? Through the Wall of Fire attempts to answer this question, examining the Armenian genocide of 1915, the two Iraq wars and embargo regime, as well as the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians beginning in 1948. Muriel Mirak-Weissbach portrays these seminal moments of the twentieth century through the eyes of those who were children at the time. Their first-hand accounts of the dramatic events are corroborated by documented historical research, in the effort to identify which political forces were ultimately responsible and why. An episode from Dante''s Divine Comedy, the pilgrim''s passage through a wall of fire, serves as a metaphor for the challenge facing political leaders and their citizens who seek reconciliation; like the pilgrim-poet, they must undergo a profound internal, emotional transformation, overcoming the hatred, bitterness and desire for revenge that the traumatic past has left behind. In contemporary politics, traversing the ''wall of fire'' requires abandoning the prejudices and ignorance bred by conflict. It means facing the truth about the past, acknowledging the historical record in all its brutality and identifying those responsible. Only then is it possible to ''forgive and forget'', to define a new relationship based on the commitment to enhance the progress of the Other.

Fire Of Mercy Heart Of The Word Vol 2 from the Author: Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis. To the unstudied eye, St. Matthew's gospel can seem a terse narrative, almost a historical document and not the tremendously spiritual (and doctrinal) storehouse that it is. In his third volume of meditations on Matthew (chapters 19-25), Erasmo Leiva continues to show Matthew's prose to be not terse so much as economical--astoundingly so given its depth. The lay reader can derive great profit from reading this. Each short meditation comments on a verse or two, pointing to some facet of the text not immediately apparent, but rich with meaning. Leiva's work is scholarly but eminently approachable by the lay reader. The tone is very much of "taste and see how good the Lord is" and an invitation of "friend, come up higher!." The goal of the book is to help the reader experience the heat of the divine heart and the light of the divine Word. Leiva comments on the Greek text, demonstrating nuances in the text that defy translation. He uses numerous quotes from the Fathers and the Liturgy of the Church to demonstrate the way the Tradition has lived and read the Word of God. His theological reflection vivifies doctrine by seeking its roots in the words and actions of Jesus.

Wall Of Fire The Rifle And Civil War Infantry Tactics from the Author: Major Richard E. Kerr Jr.. This thesis examines the effect the rifle had on infantry tactics during the Civil War. It traces the transition from smoothbore to rifle and the development of the Minie ball. The range and accuracy of various weapons are discussed and several tables illustrate the increased capabilities of the rifle. Tactics to exploit the new weapon are examined, primarily those of William Hardee. Using Hardee’s tactics as the standard rifle tactics before the war, the change in how infantry soldiers fought is documented with two battle analyses. The 1862 Maryland Campaign shows the start of tactical evolution as soldiers seek cover, expend large quantities of ammunition and are decisively engaged at greater distances. During the 1864 Wilderness-Spotsylvania battle, the concepts of fortification defense and skirmish offense take hold. Examining several current books that deal with the rifle and its effects, the thesis concludes that the rifle’s increased firepower was a major factor in the move away from Hardee’s formation tactics.

Brethren Through Bloodshed from the Author: M.K. Lauren. Those with ill intentions seldom sit idly in the dark while the world prospers. Evil never presents itself before a firm foothold has been secured. Questions that were not asked when peace washed over the land will soon flourish as the sum of all evils is renewed and released upon the realms. Agents of darkness spread fear and hate throughout the continent before any are capable of bringing forth a resistance. Marching hordes of barbaric warriors and cruel warlords will once again fill the hills and plains with death and destruction. As the world quickly fades to black, an ancient power is stirred; a power that was once meant to be a gift from the gods themselves. It was to be spread to those capable within the land in order to bring a balance to all who lived. The ancient power will soon be renewed but the allegiance of its wielder has yet to be determined. Those aware of the ancient power’s awakening work with a frenzied pace to assure the alignment of its wielder shifts toward their favor. There are many who shall rise up to oppose the destructive forces. Many will sacrifice their lives to give the world a chance, no matter how fleeting. Then, there is one that will discover that he has been given the gift to challenge those working for his very destruction. There is but one problem. He does not have the knowledge or ability to control it. He must take up the task of standing in front of an evil that has been hidden for centuries while attempting to unlock his true potential. As he struggles to meet the challenge of his newly found power, he is joined by others who yearn to fight the evil that once again plagues this world. Together, they face many struggles as they attempt to conquer the atrocities darkness sends their way and stop the tyranny from rising to power.
