The Jefferson Bible [Illustrated]

This enhanced version of The Jefferson Bible includes illustrations and Jefferson’s original Letter to the Danbury Baptists about the separation of church and state.

The Jefferson Bible, or The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth, as it is properly titled was Thomas Jefferson’s version of the New Testament. Jefferson adapted the teachings of Jesus by removing sections of the New Testament containing supernatural parts along with areas that he felt were added by the Four Evangelists: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

Jefferson cut and pasted his arrangement of the remaining verses of the New Testament in chronological order to create a single narrative.

The Master

The Master

Like Michael Cunningham in The Hours, Colm Tóibín captures the extraordinary mind and heart of a great writer. Brilliant and profoundly moving, The Master tells the story of Henry James, a man born into one of America’s first intellectual families two decades before the Civil War. James left his country to live in Paris, Rome, Venice, and London among privileged artists and writers.

In stunningly resonant prose, Tóibín captures the loneliness and longing, the hope and despair of a man who never married, never resolved his sexual identity, and whose forays into intimacy inevitably failed him and those he tried to love. The emotional intensity of Tóibín’s portrait of James is riveting. Time and again, James, a master of psychological subtlety in his fiction, proves blind to his own heart and incapable of reconciling his dreams of passion with his own fragility.

Santa Viking

A fun, romantic romp yule love! Meet a sexy tenth-century Viking hero and a modern day hero with a Viking heritage who both have the knack for making women melt . . . with holiday cheer. Merry Christmas from the Norse Pole.

Boltor’s Bride

Bolthor the Skald has been there for his fellow warriors, both in battle and as a friend. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride, so to speak. This gentle giant, now scarred and retired from the fray, has never found a woman who loves him despite his rough appearance—and his poetry, which is woefully bad.

Enter the sexy, Saxon widow Katherine of Wickshire Manor, a woman in need of a strong man to take care of her, her four children, not to mention about two hundred chickens, in the style none of her first three husbands could manage.

When Viking meets Saxon, the sparks do fly.

Genesis

A stunning debut novel that’s as rich in ideas as it is in suspense, destined to become a modern classic of post-apocalyptic literature.

Anax thinks she knows history. Her grueling all-day Examination has just begun, and if she passes, she’ll be admitted into the Academy—the elite governing institution of her utopian society. But Anax is about to discover that for all her learning, the history she’s been taught isn’t the whole story. And the Academy isn’t what she believes it to be. In this brilliant novel of dazzling ingenuity, Anax’s examination leads us into a future where we are confronted with unresolved questions raised by science and philosophy. Centuries old, these questions have gained new urgency in the face of rapidly developing technology. What is consciousness? What makes us human? If artificial intelligence were developed to a high enough capability, what special status could humanity still claim? Outstanding and original, Beckett’s dramatic narrative comes to a shocking conclusion.
