Filled with seduction, suspense, and passionate love, Madeline Hunter’s bestselling novels have captivated readers everywhere. Now she introduces fans to one of her most thrilling heroes yet—“the Sinner”—in an irresistible tale of a sensual bargain so dangerously provocative, it could tempt the devil himself . . . THE SINNER Wearing nothing but a man’s nightshirt, Fleur Monley wakes to find herself in the bed of England’s most charming and reckless libertine. But it was a stray gunshot, not passion, that put her at the mercy of a man as infamously handsome as he is famously talented in the arts of love. Believing herself immune to any seduction, Fleur thinks herself perfectly safe to proffer an arrangement no ordinary woman would dare make: half her fortune for the freedom she would gain by being his wife—in name only. Desperately in need of funds, Dante Duclaire could do worse than the “white marriage” proposed by this idealistic beauty too naïve to know the danger she is in. But the rashest thing he’s ever done is to tell himself he’ll be able to resist the invitation to sin that this sensuous innocent would arouse at every turn—or that he’ll be able to protect her from both the ruthless enemies that seek her ruin . . . and his own dangerous desire.

In this popular yet academically grounded look at Jesus, liberation theologians Dorothee Soelle and Luise Schottroff offer a corrective to the "Jesus of history" research recently made popular through the work of the Jesus Seminar. By situating Jesus within his community of friends--who played a large part in his life, ministry, and movement--the authors show that the story of Jesus has not come to a close. Rather,Jesus of Nazarethdemonstrates how his works, words, and inspired community pose timeless challenges for contemporary life. This book includes sixty-seven color illustrations, a glossary, chronological table, map, and brief annotated bibliography.

Were you aware of the fact that you are creating a legacy? Each and every one of us, whether we realize it or not, whether we agree with it or not, even whether we like it or not, does have a very powerful, unmistakable influence on those around us. This even includes those we may not know personally or that we may not understand we are influencing. Someone is always watching us and we are helping to shape their lives for good or for evil. But now think about this: Did you realize that you are exerting your influence as a sinner? That's right; even Christians are people who do sin, at least occasionally. The Apostle Paul told us in Romans 3:23 that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." There is not one of us, Christian or not, who is free from sin. The good news is that we don't have to remain in sin or continue to live a sinful lifestyle. In short, we can all be people who decide to make an impact on this world for God and for good instead of for Satan and unrighteousness. That choice faces each of us. What should be seen as equally good news is the fact that God's forgiveness, for those who come to Him His way, is impartial and complete. Our background, ethnicity, or former lifestyle are immaterial; God is ready and willing to extend His forgiveness to us. And the rewards that come to those who are forgiven go far beyond anything we can possibly imagine. In this book, we will together explore these topics and hopefully come to realize that our legacy, the impact we have on other people, can endure even after we have left this physical world. I hope that you, like me, find this to be an exciting time of discovery from God's word. May He richly bless each person who seeks to influence those around them in a godly manner!
