Once considered the largest and most extensive source of biographies in the English language, The Universal Dictionary of Biography and Mythology contains information on nearly every historical figure, notable name, and important subject of mythology from throughout the world prior to the 20th century. Spanning all fields of human effort-from literature and the arts to philosophy and science-and touching on topics from multiple areas of mythological study, including Norse, Greek, and Roman, this extraordinary reference guide continues to be one of the most thorough and accurate collections of biographical data ever created. Combining mythological and biographical entries into a single, comprehensive list, and incorporating a unique system of indicating pronunciation and orthography, The Universal Dictionary of Biography and Mythology offers readers an unparalleled record of historically significant identities, from the obscure and forgotten newsmakers of yesteryear to the highly celebrated shapers of history that remain influential today. Volume II (CLU-HYS) of this exquisite four-volume set includes information on such names as Clytemnestra, Constantine the Great, Charles Dickens, Stoic philosopher Euphrates, English author John Fox, Galileo, Hercules, and many more. JOSEPH THOMAS (1811-1891) also wrote A Comprehensive Medical Dictionary, various pronouncing vocabularies of biographical and geographical names, and a system of pronunciation for Lippincott's Pronouncing Gazetteer of the World.

How do you put your faith to work so that God would respond to you? You might ask how God can reject us, for he is love. If you reject him, he will reject you. But Jesus died a horrible death to keep us out of a horrible place. Just thank him for what you have need of. Say it out loud to him. He is omnipotent (powerful everywhere). Thank you, Lord. I believe you can hear me and you will show me the way through life victoriously. In Jesuss name, amen. There are so many healings in my life and in many others lives. There are just only millions of testimonies of what God has already done. Just grow up and be like Lord Jesus Christ. God wants to prepare you today! Dont miss it. Hear his voice. The abundant life can be yours.
Now in its second edition, Leadership Embodied is an instructive collection of short biographical essays focusing on Navy and Marine Corps personnel, who have demonstrated notable leadership characteristics. While leaders are present in every aspect of human undertaking, leadership in this work is illustrated through the most dramatic and demanding of all human undertakings—war and the preparations for war. Wartime challenges are, because of the life and death nature of the affair, more monumental and exacting. All of these individuals have been selected because they dramatically shaped today’s institutions, practices, and customs within the naval services. The contributions of these individuals should be required reading for any student of leadership because they each demonstrate a particular lesson for midshipmen on their journey to becoming a navy or Marine Corps officer.
