Trial and Triumph: Stories from Church History
Richard M. Hannula
A MUST have for kids (and adults)!
An exceptionally well-done treatment of dozens of key leaders from the last 2,000 years of church history. Hannula combines fine storytelling with a solid Reformed, Evangelical treatment of people and events. His brief biographical sketches (4-6 pages each) are excellent summaries and introductions. Do you know of Blandina or Boniface or King Gustavus Adolphus? You should! And in "Trial and ...

Sharpe's Triumph: Richard Sharpe and the Battle of Assaye, September 1803 (Richard Sharpe's Adventure Series ...

Triumph Forsaken: The Vietnam War, 1954-1965
Cambridge University Press
Best-documented History Book
"Triumph Forsaken" is the best-documented history book I have ever read. It is a valuable addition to the limited number of genuine histories on Cold-War-era subjects. I look forward to reading Mr. Moyar's future writings.
The Triumph of the Sun (Courtney Family Saga)
St. Martin's Paperbacks
I can't believe I never read Wilbur Smith before I stumbled on this book. After reading it, I educated myself on the author and his work. Like many prolific writers who crank out historical fiction, Wilbur Smith has created some fictional family trees, and crafted multiple stories around the generations thereof. In this novel, the Courtney and Ballentine families intersect during the siege of ...
The Triumph of the Moon: A History of Modern Pagan Witchcraft
Oxford University Press, USA
Witchcraft and Wicca--not quite the same thing
Ronald Hutton is professor of history at University of Bristol, and quite possibly the foremost academic authority on Wicca--modern pagan witchcraft. His hypothesis is relatively straightforward: Wicca is the only religion England has ever given the world; it is not the same thing as witchcraft, but a modern synthesis of a great many historical events and intellectual currents. Throughout ...
The Secrets, Chastisement, and Triumph of the Two Hearts of Jesus and Mary
Two Hearts Press, LLC
The 100-year Persecution of the Catholic Church in Pope Saint Leo XIII's Vision began with World War I or Bolshevik Revolution
Dear Reader: This is an excellent book and not to be missed for people that want to understand the difference between Catholoic Prophecy and Protestant Prophecy. It seems likely that the 100-Year Persecution of the Catholic Church and Christianity as a whole in Pope Saint Leo's Vision in 1884 most likely began with World War I in 1914 or the Bolshevik/Communist Revolution of 1917 ...
Truth, Triumph, and Transformation: Sorting Out the Fact from the Fiction in Universal Law
Sandra Anne Taylor
No More Blame! Thanks Sandra!
I am a huge fan of Sandra and love her books. In my estimation this latest book, Truth, Triumph, and Transformation is far and away her best. I have gotten confused over the years while reading a variety of Law of Attraction books. My latest exploration led me to a book and CD series that blamed ME for everything negative that came my way. While I am happy to accept responsibility for my ...
The Mystery of Capital: Why Capitalism Triumphs in the West and Fails Everywhere Else
Hernando De Soto
This book, though ten years old, is as relevant today as the day it was written. Should be mandatory reading for everyone in the United Nations and for anyone who cares about freedom and the third world.
Eleven Seconds: A Story of Tragedy, Courage & Triumph
E. M. Swift
Warner Books, Inc.
Living in NH, my family was privy to the rise of Travis Roy. Our television antenna received Maine stations and we became familiar with his local fame. We felt pride for his accomplishments in receiving a place with the Boston University hockey team. I can still remember the heart sinking moment when I flicked on the news the night after his accident. That eleven seconds was played and ...
The Triumph of Katie Byrne
Barbara Taylor Bradford
Never Say Never.
Katie was the only functioning survivor of the trio of Connecticut would-be actresses to carry on with their dream of starring on Broadway. After the disaster, she's not so sure any more that she has the courage to keep on keeping on. So she takes a sabbatical to visit and study acting in England. She's not sure she will ever be "good enough" for her claim to fame. Her British friends take ...
The Triumph of Deborah
An excellent story
I have a purple tee-shirt with the slogan "Well behaved women rarely make history," and it shows a woman wearing a red hat. Rather than dressy red and purple regalia, I would often wear that shirt with jeans to my Red Hat meetings. That's more who I am. But today I want to talk about the words. Deborah, a judge in the years before the Israelites had a king, ruled firmly and wisely. Nobody ...
Triumph of the Lamb: A Commentary on Revelation
Dennis E. Johnson
P & R Publishing
One of the best commentaries on Revelation
Johnson's commentary is amillenial, exegetically sound, and detailed without becoming verbose. I have read numerous commentaries on Revelation, and I consider this one of the very best. It ranks alongside William Hendriksen's More Than Conquerors and Vern Poythress' The Returning King, but is much more in-depth than either of those. Also highly recommended is Kistemaker's commentary.
Ronald Reagan and the Triumph of American Conservatism (Library of American Biography Series) (2nd Edition)
Must-Read for Conservatives
Dr. Jules Tygiel uses simple, forthright prose to assess the accomplishments and evaluate the legacy of one of America's most popular presidents.His admiration for Ronald Reagan's political skills is fairly balanced with his reservations about some of the unfinished business of the two-term administration.This is a book for general readers, not scholars. There are no footnotes and only a brief ...
The Triumph of Caesar: A Novel of Ancient Rome (Roma Sub Rosa)
Another historical masterpiece full of tragic irony
Tragic irony triumphs in this novel where an old Gordianus returned from Aegypt has to find a conspirator against triumphant Caesar...no, not THAT conspirator. Indeed, a little known conspiracy came to be discovered by an agent of Caesar's wife, Calpurnia, an agent who didn't survive. And Gordianus is again sleuthing, interrogating historical figures like Antony, Cicero, Vercingetorix and ...
Triumph of Politics: Why the Reagan Revolution Failed
David Alan Stockman
Avon Books (Mm)
American Political Analysis at its Best
To discover the subject matter of this book, you can look to other reviews. I will confine my comments to my own opinion, for what it's worth. I have read this book several times, now randomly picking pages for a starting point. No other book comes close to understanding America's domestic political process. It is an intelligent view from the trenches, like Robert Graves' "Goodbye to All ...
Triumph of the Heart: The Story of Statins
Jie Jack Li
Oxford University Press, USA
An industrial tour de force laid bare
Statins revolutionized the prevention and treatment of heart disease and saved hundreds of thousands of lives that may have been otherwise lost through heart attacks and stroke and millions of dollars that would have been paid by patients for surgery and other invasive treatments. The best selling molecule in this class(atorvastatin) is the best selling drug of all time and makes more than 12 ...
Where's My Wand?: One Boy's Magical Triumph over Alienation and Shag Carpeting
Amy Einhorn Books/Putnam
Self Reflective, Not Self Absorbed
I was delighted to find that Eric had written an autobiography. He's perfectly nailed the coming of age story for the 1970s generation of gay teenagers who grew up in bible belt towns. But sure, there's a bunch of stories like this. What makes Eric's story different is that he's not a whiner. Not even in the slightest. In every characterization of his family, there's deeply moving, warm ...
Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle
A Stunning Piece of Journalism
This is a stunning piece of journalism at its very best and a book that any responsible citizen has to read. I absolutely loved this book (except Chapter 2, which seemed like it was taken from a completely different book and can be resumed as "Pornography bad, Dworkin good, sex scary, intimacy comforting.") I suggest that this chapter be skipped altogether in favor of the brilliant political ...
