In hushed voices, fearful false gods referred to him as The Bastard King, The Sword of the Faithless, The Heathen’s Scythe, and The Savage Reaper but his favorite was still plain "Seven" because it was the number of so-called immortals he had killed to become immortal himself.

Click for more detail about Why I Sued the Bible Publishers by Bradley Fowler Why I Sued the Bible Publishers

by Bradley Fowler
Independently Published (Feb 24, 2019)
Read Detailed Book Description

“As a citizen of the State of Michigan, I’m not required to pay tithes, support any religion organization, or attend church. In fact, The Constitution of the State of Michigan protects all Michigan citizens from being forced to participate in any religion organization” Bradley Fowler conveys before citing The Constitution of the State of Michigan Article 1 § 4.

Since filing his initial civil suit against three world-respected Bible publishers, i.e. Zondervan Publishing, L.L.C. Thomas Nelson, and William Tyndale Publishers, in 2009. Bradley has invested eight-years, researching and studying to understand the use of hermeneutics, a branch of knowledge dealing with interpretation of scholarly work, commonly utilized by Bible scholars.

In 2009, when Bradley attended Florida Institute of Technology he was required to complete a course in religious studies; doing so enabled Bradley to learn how variation of terminology, Bible publishers utilize in an effort to discriminate against, homosexuals, in the many Bibles published since 1982.

Bradley conveys that each Bible publisher has willfully integrated bias towards homosexuals, men who sleep with men, and/or male prostitutes in the Bible, without concerning themselves about what the Bible actually teaches about interpretation of Biblical content.

Additionally, Bradley learned that the term-homosexual, wasn’t coined until the 19th Century, by German Psychologist, Karoly Maria Benkert. Learning this evoked Bradley to investigate, how today’s Bible publishers could convey that homosexuals would not inherit the Kingdom of God, in the countless Bibles, they edit and publish.

After all, most Bibles convey in Romans 10: 6 & 7, that “the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on the wise, Say not in thine heart Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above: ) or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.).

Bradley also points out that passages in I Corinthians 2:14, teach that the natural man doesn’t understand the things of God, nor can he know them because they are spiritually discerned. Yet, each Bible publisher sued published passages in the Bibles published between 1982-2015, discriminating against homosexuals, causing such persons to be victimized, taunted, and/or murdered internationally.

Thus, Bradley believes this new book entitled Why I Sued The Bible Publishers, will empower Christians and enable them to better understand, why Bible publishers are revising biblical texts, to not only convey what they believe the Bible should say. Bradley shared scholarly research explaining why bible publisher’s use of hermeneutics is misleading Christians away from the faith and discombobulating Christians about what the Bible actually teaches.

Bradley stresses, Christians should take a sincere interest in studying the Bible, beyond their neighborhood ministers, reverends, and Bishops, and enroll in scholarly courses that better educate religious practitioners about the history of Christianity, who established the Church, why the Church was foundered, and when Christianity was given power to exist.

Bradley believes, Christians will gain a substantial amount of education about biblical passages.

They’ve gained their freedom from the South. But what if their new freedom is all a lie? Patrick Edgerton, leader of the Railway Association, has succeeded in the monumental task of freeing slaves from the once mighty Southern Republic. Following the fall of the South, the UN has decreed that the South must pay for the care of any former slaves. With hope finally on the horizon, Patrick and those he helped free begin what will be a long journey towards equality and rehabilitation. But the wheels of power are turning in the US capitol. With the UN’s proclamation against the South, the President of the US sees a way to bleed the South economically dry: by keeping the former slaves under a new, more subtle form of oppression, it will force the South to continue to pay for them until they have nothing left. This conspiracy sets off a deceitful chain reaction to construct a system of ghettos that keeps former slaves in a cycle of destitution and despair, ultimately creating second class citizens. With everything they’d worked so hard to achieve on the line, Patrick and a handful of others set out to ensure that the former slaves don’t become entrapped in this new kind of slavery; a slavery as bad as what they’d left behind. Full of powerful themes still prevalent in society today, Lex Ramsay weaves an eerily realistic story of race manipulation and marginalization, and those brave and willing enough to continue the fight.

by Stanley Lane-Poole
Independently Published (Sep 27, 2017)
Read Detailed Book Description


Saladin, the first sultan of Egypt and Syria, is an iconic figure in Middle Eastern history.

Stanley Lane-Poole’s acclaimed biography Saladin and the Fall of Jerusalem is a complete study of the life of this noted leader: his youth, rise through twelfth-century Middle-Eastern politics, career as a military commander and the conquest of Egypt and Syria, and his intriguing clashes with Richard the Lionheart.

Throughout his life, Saladin established himself as a military commander of genius, a man of honour and an intrepid statesman, cementing his place in the annals of Middle-Eastern history.

The result of a lifetime of study by eminent historian Lane-Poole, Saladin and the Fall of Jerusalem benefits from the rich and colourful chronicles of Arab and Moslem historians, providing us with a unique insight into the life and deeds of this fascinating figure.

“Stanley Lane-Poole has rendered valuable service in his different works by presenting various phases of Oriental history and life in such a way as to interest even those to whom such subjects are ordinarily a sealed book”.—The American Historical Review

Stanley Edward Lane-Poole, 18 December 1854, was a British orientalist and archaeologist. Born in London, England, from 1874 to 1892 he worked in the British Museum, and after that in Egypt researching on Egyptian archaeology. From 1897 to 1904 he had a chair as Professor of Arabic studies at Dublin University. He died in 1931.

Charlie desperately wants to know everything about the people and strange objects in the city, and he doesn’t understand that he can’t always go wherever he likes. Mama Leticia (his aunt) tries to teach Charlie to be careful, and asks Cousin Pete to keep on eye on him. But Charlie is too nosey, and curiosity gets the better of him. He goes where he shouldn’t—checking out garbage bags in the park—and this time poor Cousin Pete gets hurt. The Nosey Charlie adventures will make you laugh and cry, and sometimes cheer Charlie along as he explores his new environment and finds himself in desperate situations.

"I thought that I had already thought about everything you could think about Love when Henry Drummond’s sermon fell into my hands. My life changed a lot from the moment I read the words in this book and tried to put his teaching into practice." Paulo Coelho —————— "If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal." At some point, all of us have heard this passage from St. Paul’s Letter to the Corinthians. But do we really understand his message? At the end of the 19th century, the young missionary Henry Drummond was asked to replace a famous preacher. Though at the beginning he did not convince the audience, they were soon captivated by his analysis of the words of the Apostle Paul. This sermon, The Greatest Thing in the World, has become a classic and is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful texts ever written on love. Drummond broke it down into the following nine elements: patience, kindness, generosity, humility, gentleness, dedication, tolerance, sincerity and innocence. Contrary to what we are used to hearing, the greatest treasure in the spiritual life is not faith, but love. No matter what your religious beliefs are, this feeling is, without doubt, the most rewarding way to live. In The Supreme Gift, Paulo Coelho adapts Henry Drummond’s text, offering a real and powerful message that will help us incorporate love into our daily life and experience all its transformational power in our lives.
