BOOK EXCERPT:

The ancient Romans were responsible for many remarkable achievements—Roman numerals, straight roads—but one of their lesser-known contributions was the creation of the tourist industry. The first people in history to enjoy safe and easy travel, Romans embarked on the original Grand Tour, journeying from the lost city of Troy to the Acropolis, from the Colossus at Rhodes to Egypt, for the obligatory Nile cruise to the very edge of the empire. And, as Tony Perrottet discovers, the popularity of this route has only increased with time. Intrigued by the possibility of re-creating the tour, Perrottet, accompanied by his pregnant girlfriend, sets off to discover life as an ancient Roman. The result is this lively blend of fascinating historical anecdotes and hilarious personal encounters, interspersed with irreverent and often eerily prescient quotes from the ancients—a vivid portrait of the Roman Empire in all its complexity and wonder. From the Trade Paperback edition.

BOOK EXCERPT:

God had ordained what days are ordinary, and which days He had made High Days and hallowed them as feast days for the Israelites. Many generations have strayed away from the way they are suppose to serve God; they have taken heed to the way of the stranger, celebrating man's pagan holidays. We have to serve God the way we are ordained to and not the way we want to. There are man's philosophies and opinions, and then there is the truth. (Ecclesiasticus 33: 7-9)

BOOK EXCERPT:

Have you ever wondered what a Christmas tree has to do with the birth of Christ, or, why children decorate eggs in commemoration of Christ's death? Well, the answer is a sobering one. Because of the compromise between pagans and the Catholic Church many Christian holidays are Christian in name only. In this book Elisha J. Israel traces the origins of this unholy compromise. Elisha J. Israel is the author of Into Egypt Again With Ships: A Message to the Forgotten Israelites (African Americans) and Killing Black Innocents: The Program to Control "African American" Reproduction (from Slavery's End to the Present-Day Self-Inflicted Genocide).

BOOK EXCERPT:

When it comes to the Christmas Holiday, Christians fall on one of two sides: either they abandon it altogether as pagan and idolatrous, or they celebrate it all together as the most wonderful time of the year. Some have nothing to do with Christmas at all, and others invite Christmas into sermons, Sunday worship, family gatherings and the like. People who believe Christmas is idolatrous quote church history and expound the Regulative Principle of worship. Those who want to celebrate Christmas want to reclaim Christmas as eminently Christian since “Jesus is the Reason for the Season.” What is the biblical view? Is it one or the other, or is there a view more accommodating to both sides? What if both of those extreme views are wrong, and there is another option that is less thought about but more biblically based? Can Christians partake in Christmas…or not? This is not a scan or facsimile, has been updated in modern English for easy reading and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.
