From Marcus Brotherton, co-author of Call of Duty, comes a new collection of untold stories from the Band of Brothers. They were the men of the now-legendary Easy Company. After almost two years of hard training, they parachuted into Normandy on D-Day and, later, Operation Market Garden. They fought their way through Belgium, France, and Germany, survived overwhelming odds, liberated concentration camps, and drank a victory toast in April 1945 at Hitler's hideout in the Alps. Here, revealed for the first time, are stories of war, sacrifice, and courage as experienced by one of the most revered combat units in military history. In We Who Are Alive and Remain, twenty men who were there and are alive today—and the families of three deceased others—recount the horrors and the victories, the bonds they made, the tears and blood they shed...and the brothers they lost.

All over the world, a common question being asked by all is, Does God really love me? People often feel rejected and are terrified of God. There is bitterness in their hearts toward God, and so they avoid coming to Him. Yet the real reason is we are not truly aware of His love. Often we try to measure Gods love with the standards of human love. We ask questions such as, If God loves me, then why I am hurting? Why have I lost my job? Why is my marriage breaking? Why I am suffering with deadly sickness? Why is this happening to me? Why holocaust, sudden death, loss due to natural calamities, 9/11, and shootings in schools? Then we always try to see where God is in that situation, and we feel that if God loves me, why did I get hurt? Does God still love me when I sin? People all over the world are too guilty of what they have done or are still doing. This guilt leads them to stay away from God, since they think God is not going to accept them because of what they have done. This book is a fresh new revelation of God to answer the questions of your life.

It’s one thing to know the story of the Bible. It’s another thing to live it. Grounded in carefully selected Scripture, Believe, NKJV is a unique spiritual growth experience that takes you on a journey to think, act, and be more like Jesus. Pastor Randy Frazee walks you through the ten key beliefs of the Christian faith, the ten key Practices of a Jesus-follower, and the ten key Virtues that characterize someone who is becoming more like Jesus. Every believer needs to ask these three questions: What do I believe? What should I do? Who am I becoming? What you believe in your heart will define who you become. God wants you to become like Jesus - it is the most truthful and powerful way to live - and the journey to becoming like Jesus begins by thinking like Jesus. When you study the life of Jesus you will notice a distinct pattern: Jesus faithfully lived in a purposeful way. Jesus compared the Christian life to a vine. He is the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in the vine of Christ, over time you will produce amazing and scrumptious fruit at the end of your branches for all to see and taste. You become like Jesus. Each chapter uses short topical passages from the New King James Version (NKJV) to help you live the story of the Bible. As you journey through this Bible, whether in a group or on your own, one simple truth will become undeniably clear: what you believe drives everything.

This Book explores spiritual principles as opposed to the principles of this present age. In everyday life we are well familiar with the principles that operate here on the earth. We know that when a door is shut we must open it in order to pass through. We know that touching a hot stove will cause pain and a burn. Science is aware of the rules and boundaries of the laws of physics and chemists know the results of mixing elements together to cause a certain result. Although there are many of the scientific laws of nature currently unknown to mankind, he continues to strive to find answers and to reconcile the scientific world of which we are aware using out five senses. What science does not understand, or is unwilling to admit, there is a realm beyond the certainties of this physical realm that is incapable of scientific proof. That realm is called "The Spiritual Realm." Most deny its existence or if they mentally assent to the possibility that such a realm exists they know little about it and certainly don't apply it to their everyday lives or scientific pursuits. Some look on such things as foolishness as the Apostle Paul said: "But a natural [unspiritual] man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised" (1 Corinthians 2:14). However, as this book will attempt to point out, the spirit realm is very much a real place, actually more real than our physical world. The spirit world has its own set of rules and principles that govern it. However its ways are past finding out by the natural mind of man and thus invisible to those without spiritual sight. The Apostle Paul said in the Bible: "because the human mind is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so" (Romans 8:7). Thus our intellect is useless in knowing anything beyond what we can see or touch. Just taking the most basic of the spiritual laws, the 10 commandments for instance, who can argue that we all would be a little better off if everyone was able to follow these basic rules? There would be no crime, therefore no expensive jails to confine criminals. The family unit, which has been broken down in this generation, would stay intact as children would respect their parents; there would be no adultery to break up the family and coveting would all together cease. There would be no serious disparity between the rich and the poor and the poor would be taken care of without great expenditure of funds to do so. There would be no greed, war, competition etc. just to name a few. Jesus said that if we were to pray at all we should pray to God:

I offer you a fresh and inspired non-fiction book and Bible study guide to the “Book of Revelation / Apocalypse”. This book will take you on a spiritual journey of understanding based on Jesus’ words in the Bible that is different from traditional interpretations of this end-time prophecy. It provides an excellent way to engage with God’s word to seek the truth. This book is based on the idea that Jesus has provided the information in the Gospels that would unlock the mysteries of Revelation. Mat 24:33-34 33 so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. 34 "Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. God gave us Revelation to show his followers “the things which must shortly take place”. Why shortly? Revelation is addressed to the end-times generation and it is only then that the revelation is to become fully revealed. Now is the time. As I guide you on this journey, I will show you the keys that will transform Revelation into an easily understood message from God. Amazingly, one key is that Revelation was written out of chronological order at God’s direction to seal it up until the end-times. This Revelation guide is filled with ideas and concepts that will keep your Bible study group engaged in “Spirited” discussion. In Chapter 9, "Are We the End-Time Generation?” I describe where we might be in biblical prophecy based on the reordered Revelation. I believe that the end-times have begun and that the baby boomer generation will see the end of it all. This makes understanding Revelation all the more important.

This book is the author's obedience to God. The purpose is to help the many individuals who are diligently seeking to understand their future as revealed in the Bible and the Jew who is interested in Israel's prophetic future. To accomplish this purpose, many Bible prophetic scriptures need to be correctly understood and put into a proper time sequence with the other scriptures. The author has sought to achieve this purpose by the arrangement of these Bible scriptures with minor commentary. Christians need to be prepared for the tribulation that is coming on those who truly trust in Jesus as Lord. Details of the true believers rapture (taking up) into Heaven need to be studied very carefully. Jews need to understand God's will for their acceptance of Jesus now as their Messiah. This requires that we be taught by the Holy Spirit with much prayer.Author James Robert (Bob) Baker is 81 years of age and has been married to his wife Laura for 56 years.
