  • The First Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ: Two Translations

The First Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ, also commonly referred to as The Infancy Gospel of Thomas (not to be confused with the apocryphal book simply called the Gospel of Thomas), dates to AD 185 and tells stories of the early events in the life of Christ, including miracles; although, also included are stories depicting the childhood Jesus behaving less sacredly than one might expect, which may be exactly the reason why the infancy gospels were never considered canon by the Church.

First read this story in E-book format and when I saw it in the Audible store I couldn't wait to purchase. I love this story line and the characters were true to the original book. I would definitely recommend this book.

Between 1947 and 1956, approximately 15 copies of the "Book of Jubilees" were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. This is second only to a number of Psalms, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Exodus, and Genesis, and far greater than any other extra-biblical text found there, including "The Book of Enoch."

Also called the "The Little Genesis," "Book of Divisions," and the "Apocalypse of Moses," the "Book of Jubilees" is an apocryphal work (not accepted as Scripture)

With his work in Montana completed now that the Callahan-Warren feud has ended in marriage rather than bloodshed, Degan Grant sets out for California because it is far away from the home he wants to forget - until the US Marshal who saved his life calls in a favor. All Degan has to do is apprehend three outlaws on the marshal's list and turn them over to the law. Easy enough, he figures, for a man no one wants to tangle with. But then a bold young woman crosses his path.

What's in us comes out. If all we ever hear or speak is negativity, then when life pressures us, we're going to spew out toxic waste: doubt, fear, anxiety, and poverty. As believers, we must be so filled with a godly spirit, that when we are squeezed, nothing comes out but faith and Holy Ghost power. It's time to stop wavering in our faith and start living like we are positively sure of God's faithfulness. This inspirational 31-day positive self-talk declarations will bless you.

I am truly happy I came across this audiobook of Positive Self Talk, I have the Kindle book and it has been so helpful to me. Now I can listen to it on the way to work and at work. I have three other Lynn R. Davis Kindle books and I will be getting the audio companion. Thank you Miss Davis for awesome books they have helped me through some rough times.

Calista Langley operates an exclusive "introduction" agency in Victorian London, catering to respectable ladies and gentlemen who find themselves alone in the world. But now a dangerously obsessed individual has begun sending her trinkets and gifts suitable only for those in deepest mourning - a black mirror, a funeral wreath, a ring set with black jet stone. Each is engraved with her initials.

Really was excited to get the newest Amanda Quick book. So enjoyable and the narrator was spot on. Some people complain that Ms Quick's books fit a pattern maybe a little added here and there but that is her style in her historical books. I really enjoy reading and listening to her stories. But to each his own.

The first kiss occurred in a dimly lit hallway on the upper floor of Elwin Hastings' grand house. Louisa never saw it coming....Of course, Anthony Stalbridge couldn't possibly have had romantic intentions. The kiss was an act of desperation, meant to distract the armed guard who was about to catch the pair in a place they most definitely did not belong.

Leona Hewitt, disguised in men's formal evening clothes, has secretly made her way into Lord Delbridge's private museum to recover a relic stolen from her family years ago. But someone else is there in the dimly lit gallery, on the same errand: a tall, black-cloaked man whose very voice is enough to put her in a trance.
