‘There followed a blue flash accompanied by a ver y bright magnesium-type flare ... Then came a frighteningly loud but rather flat explosion, which was followed by a blast of hot air ... All this was followed by eerie silence.’ This was Cork doctor Aidan MacCarthy’s description of the atomic bomb explosion above Nagasaki in August 1945, just over a mile from where he was trembling in a makeshift bomb shelter in the Mitsubishi POW camp. At the end of the war, a Japanese officer did the unthinkable: he surrendered his samurai sword to MacCarthy, his enemy and former prisoner. This is the astonishing story of the wartime adventures of Dr Aidan MacCarthy, who survived the evacuation at Dunkirk, burning planes, sinking ships, jungle warfare and appalling privation as a Japanese prisoner of war. It is a story of survival, forgiveness and humanity at its most admirable.

Christians are the products of yesterday, today, and forever. It means that we have the past, present, and future. Everybody has past records; if not well handled with faith, it can ruin your future completely. You need faith in Jesus Christ to remain successful in life. Look for faith and make it the foundational stone that will hold your past, present, and future without any unnecessary anxieties. Friends are important when they are contributing to your success, but when you are the only one carrying their burdens, you will soon be like them-poor. Faith will make you survive when you are left alone. God will never visit you for a special miracle until men will leave you alone in the midst of trouble. There are two people you must trust for your future: Jesus Christ and yourself. A meaningful and outstanding future is the result of faith commanded into critical situation when all hope is lost. Everyone that wants to have a glorious future must look for faith to embrace. You cannot divorce faith and marry future. You never know how important faith is until you know how painful it is to live life without faith. The Bible says, "The just shall live by faith" (Romans 1:17, NKJV). Brethren, it is only those that have faith who will drive into future with fearless minds.

Japonica F. Edmonds Smith is a seasoned writer of poetry, prose, and inspirational short stories. In God’s now latter blessings rain! I shall continue to seek the Father in order to give His people divine revelation in their thoughts as well as in their walk within their lives. It is the Father Jehovah that inspires us spiritually to draw the reader inward, in order to have an intimate walk within our heart to walk with Him. It is without question that it is God who awakens one’s heart to seek His son, Jesus. It is He that wants His plan and purpose to be fulfilled in our lives and to show us that in the midst of life trials, there is still a word from the Father. God has always been concerned about you, the saints of God in Christ Jesus. He loves you with an everlasting love. He showed humanity His agape love, when He thought it not robbery to give His Son, Jesus, to take our place, by being on the cross. That was designed for the sins of humanity ... each and every one of us individually! Thank God for His Son! We have been redeemed by His blood! IT IS FINISHED! His immeasurable love raised Jesus from the dead. Hallelujah! For He sent forth His Son that we might have life and life that more abundantly, so that we will have true intimacy, fellowship, communion, and relationship with Jesus. After all is said and done, after we have repented, we shall have true forgiveness from our sins, thereby receiving healing, growth, and restoration for ourselves as we restore love to one another with forgiveness! With the sword of the spirit in my mouth, I decree as well as command, that I am a victorious woman of God, without any constraints to do the will of the Father Jehovah in Jesus’ name. Amen! It is God’s will for all the saints of God to seek and to save those who are lost—to teach the found to go after the lost, so that all shall be saved and none perish.

As Dead As Me is a first person account of the zombie apocalypse from its beginning to its end. The dead are rising. As America falls, Jack and several other survivors are rescued by Army patrol and taken by ship to a remote island off Indonesia where, under the leadership of the Colonel, they'll try to rebuild the human race. That effort involves dangerous military forays, including an assault on an oil tanker infested with the dead, to have a generation's worth of fuel for the island; and a long train journey up the Asian continent to rescue a group of humans holed up in a women's prison. Part military novel, part adventure story, part horror tale, As Dead As Me follows a group of desperate men and women who try to be strong enough, organized enough, and brave enough, to take back the world. If they don't succeed, mankind is extinct.
