In June 2005 the Lord purpose in my heart to learn more about His word. Having a thirsty for knowledge the Spirit led me to Virginia Baptist College (seminary school). Been obedient to the Spirit of God He blessed me to receive my Master degree in Ministry (Theology) May of 2008. It was during my training there I was lead to write this book Marriage, Seeing it Gods way. Many times I prayed asking God to show me how to be a good husband according to his word. While writing this book the Lord helped me achieve the desires of my heart by becoming a loving husband. After so many years of doing things wrong in the marriage I had a yearning to do it Gods way and fulfilled my purpose as a husband. My soul purpose was to please God and my wife (help mate) of 30 years. The Lord revealed many things to me one particular characteristic about me He showed me stood out more than all others. Love her as Christ loved me with longsuffer and forgive. Out of the process of time through many hours of seeking the Lord in pray, fasting and studying the Scriptures, the Lord opens up my mind to put these thought in the form of a book. I am thankful for the fellowship He allow me to share with Him, the many conversations we had, the tears I shed and the long hours of research. Two things I learned about God during this process, (1) He will meet you where you are, (2) He will always tell you what you dont want to here. Be careful what you ask for. Writing this book also allowed me to achieve many other goals; To come a certify Sunday school teacher ETA (Standard & Advance courses), Ordained Elder PCAF, Inc., Aug. 2011 and a graduate of ESSC Ministerial Training Course and a new career. I truly thank my wife for her patient and love she was the motor that kept me going but God was the source. I pray this book be a blessing to all who reads it. God bless.
Critics often trace the prevailing mood of despair and purported nihilism in the works of Cormac McCarthy to the striking absence of interior thought in his seemingly amoral characters. In No More Heroes, however, Lydia Cooper reveals that though McCarthy limits inner revelations, he never eliminates them entirely. In certain crucial cases, he endows his characters with ethical decisions and attitudes, revealing a strain of heroism exists in his otherwise violent and apocalyptic world.
Cooper evaluates all of McCarthy's work to date, carefully exploring the range of his narrative techniques. The writer's overwhelmingly distant, omniscient third-person narrative rarely shifts to a more limited voice. When it does deviate, however, revelations of his characters' consciousness unmistakably exhibit moral awareness and ethical behavior. The quiet, internal struggles of moral men such as John Grady Cole in the Border Trilogy and the father in The Road demonstrate an imperfect but very human heroism.
Even when the writing moves into the minds of immoral characters, McCarthy draws attention to the characters' humanity, forcing the perceptive reader to identify with even the most despicable representatives of the human race. Cooper shows that this rare yet powerful recognition of commonality and the internal yearnings for community and a commitment to justice or compassion undeniably exist in McCarthy's work.
No More Heroes directly addresses the essential question about McCarthy's brutal and morally ambiguous universe and reveals poignant new answers.
Love and war take center stage as three couples must forge alliances against evil in this dazzling, value-priced collection of fantastical romances.

Viking Fire: When Kaireen’s father, Laird Liannon, forces her into an arranged marriage with her sworn enemy, she throws her energy into getting this Viking betrothed banished from her country. As a younger son, Bram has no future or inheritance, so marriage to the laird’s daughter would grant him land and family—but even a marriage of convenience may not be worth the battle scars from such a relentless opponent. But when the blame for a rival laird’s death falls against the Liannons, Kaireen and Bram must find a way to lay aside their differences as an unforeseen darkness sends death snapping at their heels.

The Garnet Dagger: As a vampire, Brock has one chance to break the curse that compels him to feed and kill: he must find a witch, pierce her heart, and draw her blood for his cure. Celeste must find a way to elude an ancient, powerful warlock who wants to lay claim to her dormant powers. If he succeeds in devouring her magic, she and the world will die. The two fall in love, never realizing her demise is his cure. Can love triumph over such high stakes?

Son of Dragons: Elvin warrior Mirhana scours the land to silence the undead. Her heart has turned as cold as the sword she wields, until Prince Landon seeks her aid. Never has he met a woman like Mirhana, who haunts his dreams as he battles to remain true to his promise to an unseen betrothed. Then a traitor emerges to test Mirhana and Landon, and the only remaining hope is to follow the prophecy and trust their bond is more than a fleeting attraction.

This new book encompasses, in great detail, the most recent progress made in the isolation and separation of natural products. It covers antibiotics, marine and plant-derived substances, enzyme inhibitors and interferons. The most recent separation methodology is described. Although there is a bias toward antibiotics, it was done because this is still the largest natural products area of research.

The fourteen chapters are written by experts in their respective fields. The first two chapters are largely devoted to new methodology applied to purification of a variety of compounds. They include an extensive review and new applications of counter-current chromatography and the newly emerging HPLC-photodiode array technology. Chapter 3 provides a review of affinity chromatography applied to the separation of antibiotics for the first time. Next are chapters on antimicrobials with an update on all the most recent &bgr;-lactam (after 1976) discoveries. A comprehensive review of a very important class of antiparasitic agents - the avermectins - follows. An update of isolation and purification of a variety of marine-derived compounds is next. The succeeding chapter is a comprehensive review of the most recent developments in isolation and purification of interferons. This is followed by a discussion of enzyme inhibitors and their isolation and purification and ties in with a chapter on plant-derived natural products, some of which are also in this same category. The final chapter is a futuristic essay indicating the isolation of minute amounts of natural products and the fascinating biological properties which they possess.

The book has extensive isolation schemes, tables, figures and chemical structures. In many instances a short summary of the producing organism, brief chemical description and structure and biological activity of the compounds is presented. Detailed information of extraction, separation and purification techniques follow. Each chapter has an extensive bibliography and, where applicable, an appendix showing sources of materials and equipment. A detailed index to the subject matter is included at the end of the book.

The book thus offers the reader: up-to-date reviews (including 1988) of specific topics in the natural products field not to be found elsewhere; information on new chromatographic methods and techniques described in sufficient detail to be utilized by investigators in this area of research; and extensive references to enable the serious researcher to pursue particular information. It will appeal to pharmaceutical and natural products researchers and is a valuable acquisition for university chemistry and biochemistry departments.
