“I sing of arms and the man . . . ”

So begins the Aeneid, greatest of Western epic poems. Virgil’s story of the journey of Aeneas has been a part of our cultural heritage for so many centuries that it’s all too easy to lose sight of the poem itself—of its brilliantly cinematic depiction of the sack of Troy; the monstrous hunger of the harpies; the intensity of Dido’s love for the hero, and the blackness of her despair; and the violence that Aeneas and his men must endure before they can settle in Italy and build the civilization whose roots we still claim as our own.

This new translation brings Virgil’s masterpiece newly to life for English-language readers. It’s the first in centuries crafted by a translator who is first and foremost a poet, and it is a glorious thing. David Ferry has long been known as perhaps our greatest contemporary translator of Latin poetry, his translations of Virgil’s Eclogues and Georgics having established themselves as much-admired standards. He brings to the Aeneid the same genius, rendering Virgil’s formal metrical lines into an English that is familiar and alive. Yet in doing so, he surrenders none of the feel of the ancient world that resonates throughout the poem, and gives it the power that has drawn readers to it for centuries. In Ferry’s hands, the Aeneid becomes once more a lively, dramatic poem of daring and adventure, of love and loss, of devotion and death. Never before have Virgil’s twin gifts of poetic language and urgent, compelling storytelling been presented so powerfully for English-language readers. Ferry’s Aeneid will be a landmark, a gift to longtime lovers of Virgil, and the perfect entry point for new readers.

“Aurora rose, spreading her pitying light,
And with it bringing back to sight the labors
Of sad mortality, what men have done,
And what has been done to them; and what they must do
To mourn.”

The ships are ready to sail. The journey, from the fall of Troy to the birth of Rome, is about to begin. Join us.
For where you find the Blood of the Cross, you will find the anointing of the Holy Spirit ~ Benny Hinn When Derick Virgil, at eight years old, asked his mother How are we washed in the Blood of Jesus when He died 2000 years ago and there is none here to wash us? Based on James 1:5, she told him the best thing she could have ever told him, Ask God Derick, Ask God. So he did. Now, after over 30 years of study, this book has emerged and could be considered one of the deepest Bible Studies ever written on The Holy Third Person of the Trinity & Jesus Holy Blood. Based on Theoretical Physics, Logic and Hebrew and Greek word etymologies (history and meanings) in scriptures such as: Leviticus 17:11 the Life of the Flesh is in the Blood and Hebrews 9:14 How much more shall the Blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? and many more the author reveals how the Blood of Jesus, through the Holy Ghost, washes us from sin. Also revealed are connections between Jesus turning water into wine, God allowing Moses to turn the waters of Egypt into blood, Noahs ark, the Rapture and other major Biblical occurrences. The author invites readers to join him in a sort of dimensional Crime Scene Investigation at the foot of the Cross to determine the true nature of Jesus Blood and the mysterious way It ties together all of these epic Biblical events. Hopefully, while you may already "know" the Holy Ghost personally, this book will help you appreciate Him more, depend on Him more, and honor the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in a different way. If you would just like to know the Third Person of The Divine Trinity better or understand Christianity better, this book is for you as well. The book is available ONLINE in Paperback ($19.99 @ AuthorHouse), Kindle ($7.99), Nook ($8.39) & Hardcover ($25.99 @ AuthorHouse). Follow the author and the book on Twitter @HolyGhostBook
