Long enlightening fellow parishioners of Church of the Servant in Wilmington, North Carolina, her Psalms, Distilled in Verse are here collected for the first time, to be read alone or along with the original versions from the Bible.

The Epic Distilled by Nicholas Horsfall


Original Title: The Epic Distilled

The Epic Distilled is a rich exploration of Virgil's use of sources in the Aeneid, considering elements of history, geography, mythology, and ethnography. Building on and developing the research involved in the author's monumental commentaries on the Aeneid, the volume investigates how the poem was written, what Virgil read, and why particular details are interwoven into the narrative. The volume looks beyond the Aeneid's poetry and plot to focus on the 'matter' of the epic: details of colour, material, arms, clothing, landscape, and physiology. Details which might seem trivial are revealed as carefully deliberate and highly significant. For instance, one Trojan's specifically oriental trousers are suggestive of the Trojans' non-Roman 'otherness' and fit solidly into a complex ethnographic argument. In this way, the meaning and implications of Virgil's heavily allusive style, including practices and techniques of composition, are unpicked meticulously. Particularly difficult and intricate passages are delved into and the significance of specific details, legends, arcane references, places, names, digressions, and inconsistencies are uncovered. By exposing new layers of illuminating material, The Epic Distilled offers readers a fresh approach to understanding the full intellectual texture of Virgil's epic poem.

Fig Leaves Forming Summer Is Near by Tom Jones


Original Title: Fig Leaves Forming Summer Is Near

The time of Jesuss return is coming closer every day, and signs point to his coming soon. This book is an attempt to make fellow Christians aware of the signs pointing to Jesuss return. Fig Leaves Forming Summer Is Near is taken from Mathew 24, where his disciples ask Jesus what would be the signs of his return. His disciples were thinking that there would be one event, but their question was actually three questions pertaining to Jesus and his return. Also many times in scriptures, Jesus admonished us to be watching for his return and gave us clues to look for to determine that coming event. Jesus will return!
