Diarmaid MacCulloch's epic, acclaimed history A History of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years follows the story of Christianity around the globe, from ancient Palestine to contemporary China. How did an obscure personality cult come to be the world's biggest religion, with a third of humanity its followers? This book, now the most comprehensive and up to date single volume work in English, describes not only the main facts, ideas and personalities of Christian history, its organization and spirituality, but how it has changed politics, sex, and human society. Taking in wars, empires, reformers, apostles, sects, churches and crusaders, Diarmaid MacCulloch shows how Christianity has brought humanity to the most terrible acts of cruelty - and inspired its most sublime accomplishments.

This is the self-help book for people who don't usually like self-help books. In Hardcore Self Help: F**K Depression, I talk to you like a friend. That means I speak directly to you, without psychobabble. Instead I tell you why your brain is such a troll. I explain why you have literally no energy or motivation.

A rich account of the impact of the Second World War on the lives of people living in the farms and villages of Britain. On the outbreak of war, the countryside was invaded by service personnel and evacuee children by the thousands; land was taken arbitrarily for airfields, training grounds, and firing ranges, and whole communities were evicted. Prisoner-of-war camps brought captured enemy soldiers to close quarters, and as horses gave way to tractors and combines farmers were burdened with aggressive new restrictions on what they could and could not grow. Land Girls and Lumber Jills worked in fields and forests. Food - or the lack of it - was a major preoccupation, and rationing strictly enforced. And although rabbits were poached, apples scrumped, and mushrooms gathered, there was still not enough to eat. Drawing from diaries, letters, books, official records, and interviews, Duff Hart Davis revisits rural Britain to describe how ordinary people survived the war years. He tells of houses turned over to military use such as Bletchley and RAF Medmenham as well as those that became schools, notably Chatsworth in Derbyshire. Combining both hardship and farce, the book examines the profound changes war brought to Britain's countryside: from the Home Guard struggling with the provision of ludicrous equipment to the role of the XII Corps Observation Unit, whose task was to enlarge rabbit warrens and badger setts into bunkers for harassing the enemy in the event of a German invasion, to the unexpected tenderness shown by many to German and Italian prisoners of war at work on the land. Fascinating, sad, and at times hilarious, this warm-hearted book tells great stories - and casts new light on Britain during the war. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hugh Kermode.

It all started with the bereavement flowers with my name on them.Not the best way to wake up, right? I work in a flower shop. I know a funeral arrangement when I see one.I know a killer when I see one, too. And one is standing in my hospital room right now, straight behind the man who saved my life.I can’t tell anyone the truth, because that’s the fastest way to really die. So I do the next best thing. I “lose” my memory. I fake my amnesia.Pretending not to remember a brutal attempted murder has its perks. The killer is backing down, spending less time around me, loosening the noose.The less I claim to recall, the more my rescuer, Duff, works to help me “remember”. I hate lying to him.But he doesn’t understand that my memory is dangerous. To me. And to him.Fooling everyone isn’t easy. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.Except it’s starting to look like I’ve been fooling myself.In more ways than one.Read Book 1 in the newest series from USA Today best-selling author Meli Raine.“...intrigue and dark humor on display in this thriller....”While the immediate - and more compelling - tension in Raine’s (A Shameless Little Bet, 2018, etc.) heart-pumping series opener comes from Lily’s constant proximity to her would-be killer, the action takes place against a backdrop of secret government scandals.Fortunately, Lily’s voice is captivating, wry, and tough enough to sell this thriller. The novel ends with a cliffhanger that startles, if only because readers will have become so attached to Lily.

How exactly were books printed in the Middle Ages, before the age of printing? As Thomas Cahill's book, How the Irish Saved Civilization, dramatically demonstrates that without the medieval Irish monks' devotion to transcription, much of the knowledge of Western civilization would have been lost forever. At that time, the author was often his own scribe and almost invariably his own editor and publisher. In the age of manuscript culture, every copy of every book had to be copied by hand and so every copy was physically unique. Peter J. Lucas explores what is known about the medieval publishing process by close study of the work of friar John Capgrave (1393-1464), a prolific author and one of the most learned Englishmen of his day. What distinguishes Capgrave from other medieval English authors is the wealth of manuscript evidence from the author's scriptorium. Lucas focuses on how works newly composed by an author were prepared in a form suitable for patrons and readers. Capgrave's linguistic and scribal usages are set in the socio-historical context of the fifteenth century, and related to the growth and development of English literary patronage in the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. Lucas, who teaches Old and Middle English at University College, Dublin, was awarded the Gordon Duff Prize by Oxford University for his work on Capgrave.
