A major new history of the knights Templar--holy warriors, bankers, priests, heretics--by the bestselling author of The Plantagenets Jerusalem 1119. A small group of knights seeking a purpose in the violent aftermath of the First Crusade decides to set up a new order. These are the first Knights of Templar, a band of elite warriors prepared to give their lives to protect Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land. Over the next two hundred years, the Templars would become the most powerful religious order of the medieval world. Their legend has inspired fervent speculation ever since. But who were they really and what actually happened? In this groundbreaking narrative history, the bestselling author of The Plantagenets tells the true story of the Templars for the first time in a generation, drawing on extensive original sources to build a gripping account of these Christian holy warriors whose heroism and depravity have so often been shrouded in myth. The Templars were protected by the pope and sworn to strict vows of celibacy. They fought the forces of Islam in hand-to-hand combat on the sun-baked hills where Jesus lived and died, finding their nemesis in Saladin, who united Syria and Egypt to drive all Christians out of the Middle East. They were experts at channeling money across borders, immune from taxation, and beyond the control of kings. They established the medieval world's first global bank and waged private wars against anyone who threatened their interests. Then, in 1307, bogged down in a faltering war in the Middle East, the order fell foul of the king of France. On Friday, October 13, hundreds of brothers were arrested en masse, imprisoned, tortured, and disbanded amid accusations of lurid sexual misconduct and heresy. They were tried by the Vatican in secret proceedings, but were they really heretics? Dan Jones goes back to the sources to tell their story, often in their own words. At once authoritative and compulsively readable, The Templars brings their dramatic tale, so relevant to our own times, to life.

Purple star is an angelic being, who is a star that shines in the night sky but also can transform into human shape living on the spiritual realm. This book is her story to what she has witnessed with the fight between heaven and hell and how earth is always in the middle. Purple star is a seerer and can see the path in which knights and warriors are to take. She is also known as a path finder as she sees things that others do not. This book is all based on the spiritual realm known as the angelic realm. She tells of fights between the light and the dark, a rescue mission and how her life becomes in danger, and a dark star angel that lives in the dark and who has fallen in love with purple star, and she knows it, but they both accept their own path and side they live. Many keep them apart, and the dark will not release him to be with her in the light. He is punished many times for protecting her to the point his life force flows from his body. Together they are a mighty fighting force their gifts combined, and they would withstand all that is thrown at them; one protects the other, and nobody would be able to come between them. The light accepts him as he has harm none.

The death of the Roman Empire is one of the perennial mysteries of world history. Now, in this groundbreaking book, Peter Heather proposes a stunning new solution: Centuries of imperialism turned the neighbors Rome called barbarians into an enemy capable of dismantling an Empire that had dominated their lives for so long. A leading authority on the late Roman Empire and on the barbarians, Heather relates the extraordinary story of how Europe's barbarians, transformed by centuries of contact with Rome on every possible level, eventually pulled the empire apart. He shows first how the Huns overturned the existing strategic balance of power on Rome's European frontiers, to force the Goths and others to seek refuge inside the Empire. This prompted two generations of struggle, during which new barbarian coalitions, formed in response to Roman hostility, brought the Roman west to its knees. The Goths first destroyed a Roman army at the battle of Hadrianople in 378, and went on to sack Rome in 410. The Vandals spread devastation in Gaul and Spain, before conquering North Africa, the breadbasket of the Western Empire, in 439. We then meet Attila the Hun, whose reign of terror swept from Constantinople to Paris, but whose death in 453 ironically precipitated a final desperate phase of Roman collapse, culminating in the Vandals' defeat of the massive Byzantine Armada: the west's last chance for survival. Peter Heather convincingly argues that the Roman Empire was not on the brink of social or moral collapse. What brought it to an end were the barbarians.

THIS BOOK ADDRESSES VITAL QUESTIONS CONCERNING ENDTIME EVENTS DEPICTED IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION AND THE CALLING OF WARRIOR-SPIRITED CHRISTIANS OF THIS GENERATION. We are right on the verge of devastating events that will create great fear and chaos throughout the world and especially in our comfort-seeking nation. These are end-time events that are quite mystifying but extremely critical for this generation of Christianity to understand. The mission of this book is to provide a clearer understanding of these times by looking at biblical prophecy through our 21st century eyes. It is intended to feed the warrior spirit within that Christian remnant who are aware of the tremendous challenges that lie before us and are seeking guidance as to what we are about to confront, and how to "be ready." Hopefully, this book will encourage many Christians who are discerning that troubling times are about to descend upon the United States, as well as the entire world, to begin preparing now. Those who have seriously prepared will be among the Christian leaders in the Army of God who will stand strong in the glorious power of our Lord in the midst of these catastrophic times. This in-depth study of the Book of Revelation is truly a serious field guide to help prepare Christian warriors for the great tribulations which will precede the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to restore His kingdom on the earth.

Robert C. Vallieres struggled to find his ônew normalö when he returned home after serving in the military. An accident in Kuwait left him suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI) internal injuries, leaving him in constant pain. After clinics, bottles of painkillers, and behavior modification pills, hope seemed to vanish. Then a local weekly newspaper ad caught his eye: a bird-watching trip to see raptors in the mountains of New Hampshire. An Emily Dickinson poem that states, ôHope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tuneùwithout the words, and never stops at all,ö sprang to his mind. Wounded Warriors is VallieresÆs story of self-healing from crippling ôinvisibleö wounds through the help of birds. The problems of TBI and post-traumatic stress disorder do not have definitive solutions. His story of recovery offers a winged hope to thousands of military personnel who suffer these physical and mental battles.

In 1871, Richard DuFour, a factory engineer from Saratoga, New York, receives a telegram from the federal government requesting his assistance in the development of a nitroglycerine factory in Creek Canyon, South Dakota. The copper industry is booming, and DuFour's expertise will facilitate its growth. He convinces his wife, Pamela, to leave their family inn in the care of her sister so that she and their ten-year-old son, Johnnie, can accompany him. As the family sets out on their journey, DuFour experiences an almost overwhelming sense of doom in the form of a vision in which people are crying out in terror. In their travels, they witness a tornado in Indianapolis and experience the effects of the great Chicago fire. Once in Creek Canyon, DuFour assists an old medicine man who has been cruelly harassed by some cowboys. Disturbed, DuFour reports to work and immediately tells the sheriff about the abuse he witnessed toward the native man. But the authorities and the local residents aren't as compassionate: they believe that the Indians are holding up mining operations, and they don't take kindly to the DuFours for supporting them. It's soon evident that DuFour must fight against the very people he was sent to help.
