Half-Celt and half-Saxon, King David determined to take hold of his backward, patriarchal, strife-ridden country and, against all the odds, pushed and dragged it into the forefront of Christendom's advancing nations. This is a story of independence, single-mindedness and hard-headed leadership. But also, through the turbulent years of his reign, it is a story of devotion: to the woman he admired and loved, Queen Matilda. Set in the 12th century, this is the incredible story of one of Scotland's greatest kings: David, the monarch who made Scotland a power for the first time, told by master of Scottish historical fiction Nigel Tranter.
"When David gets in trouble, he always says . . . 'NO! It's not my fault! I didn't mean to! It was an accident!'" Whatever the situation, David's got a good excuse. And no matter what he's done "wrong," it's never really his fault. Soon, though, David realizes that making excuses makes him feel bad, and saying he's sorry makes him feel better. Once again, David Shannon entertains us with young David's mischievous antics and a lighthearted story that's sure to leave kids (and parents) laughing.

Children's literature can be a powerful way to encourage and empower EFL students but is less commonly used in the classroom than adult literature. This text provides a comprehensive introduction to children's and young adult literature in EFL teaching. It demonstrates the complexity of children's literature and how it can encourage an active community of second language readers: with multilayered picturebooks, fairy tales, graphic novels and radical young adult fiction. It examines the opportunities of children's literature in EFL teacher education, including: the intertexuality of children's literature as a gate-opener for canonised adult literature; the rich patterning of children's literature supporting Creative Writing; the potential of interactive drama projects. Close readings of texts at the centre of contemporary literary scholarship, yet largely unknown in the EFL world, provide an invaluable guide for teacher educators and student teachers, including works by David Almond, Anthony Browne, Philip Pullman and J.K.Rowling. Introducing a range of genres and their significance for EFL teaching, this study makes an important new approach accessible for EFL teachers, student teachers and teacher educators.
Davids history provides a convincing argument that, in his case at least, homosexuality is congenitally hereditary. However, he has no predilection for publicly advocating with the growing gay communities of the 1970s San Francisco Bay Area. He has more than enough resistance regarding his sexual persuasion from his own mother to keep him busy. Fortunate in the support of other family members, especially his faithful and loving sister, he strives to ignore his mothers objections. This is a chronicle of Davids pursuit for personal happiness which takes him to London, Amsterdam, Paris, Rome and New York and the unexpected events that cause him to reevaluate his simplistic goal of self-satisfaction to maturely align his emotional and spiritual trajectory in life.
Eleanor is determined to end the destruction that follows her strange powers by disappearing forever. But as she returns to a home that believes her dead for one last visit, what she finds may be hard to let go. Can Eleanor pay the price of survival?
Of all the figures in the Bible, David arguably stands out as the most perplexing and enigmatic. He was many things: a warrior who subdued Goliath and the Philistines; a king who united a nation; a poet who created beautiful, sensitive verse; a loyal servant of God who proposed the great Temple and founded the Messianic line; a schemer, deceiver, and adulterer who freely indulged his very human appetites. David Wolpe, whom Newsweek called “the most influential rabbi in America,” takes a fresh look at biblical David in an attempt to find coherence in his seemingly contradictory actions and impulses. The author questions why David holds such an exalted place in history and legend, and then proceeds to unravel his complex character based on information found in the book of Samuel and later literature. What emerges is a fascinating portrait of an exceptional human being who, despite his many flaws, was truly beloved by God.
In 1850, an English orphan boy's life is chronicled from birth to fatherhood through his lessons in love, betrayal, loyalty, and forgiveness.
Now a major film directed by Armando Iannucci, starring Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi and Ben Whishaw 'The greatest achievement of the greatest of all novelists' Leo Tolstoy In David Copperfield - the novel he described as his 'favourite child' - Dickens drew on his own experiences to create one of his most moving and enduringly popular works, filled with tragedy and comedy in equal measure. It is the story of a young man's adventures on his journey from an unhappy childhood to the discovery of his vocation as a novelist. Among the gloriously vivid cast of characters he encounters are his tyrannical stepfather, Mr Murdstone; his brilliant but unworthy school-friend Steerforth; his formidable aunt, Betsey Trotwood; the eternally humble yet treacherous Uriah Heep; frivolous, enchanting Dora; and the magnificently impecunious Micawber, one of literature's great comic creations. Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Jeremy Tambling

A bold and singular collection of six plays by Arab and Jewish playwrights explores the human toll of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: The Admission by Motti Lerner, Scenes From 70* Years by Hannah Khalil, Tennis in Nablus by Ismail Khalidi, Urge for Going by Mona Mansour, The Victims by Ken Kaissar, and The Zionists by Zohar Tirosh-Polk. Rather than striving to achieve balance and moral equivalency between "competing" narratives, the plays investigate themes of identity, justice, occupation, exile, history and homeland with honesty and integrity. The plays do not "take sides" or adhere to ideological orthodoxies but challenge tribalism and narrow definitions of nationalism, while varying widely in thematic content, dramatic structure, and time and place. Where politicians and diplomats fail, artists and storytellers may yet succeed--not in ratifying a peace treaty between Israel and Palestine, but in building the sort of social and political connectivity that enables resolution.

The book is about the story of two women who, after they were killed, their souls won't leave the Mother Earth until their sentimental wishes were accomplished. The spirit of Mary Scarlet Scarborough, a loving mother who was accidentally killed in a robbery, witnessed the anguish of her only loving son, David, who promised to crush the head of her killer when they meet. She would stay and guide David until the day he would meet her killer. During the Second World War, David surrendered to the Imperial Japanese Army during the fall of Bataan and became a part of the death march, but he escaped and became a member of the guerilla unit that formed the Silent Killers. In their journey on top of the Sierra Madre Mountain Range, he would meet Rosemarie Borromeo, who would fall in love with him but would be killed by a Japanese soldier during a rescue operation to free her father, Commander Borromeo. The spirit of Rosemarie won't leave the Mother Earth until David finds the woman he would love and marry. Twice in the story, the spirit of Mary Scarlet would save the life of David. Rosemarie also saved the life of David a couple of times during and after the Second World War.. After their divine intentions were accomplished, the spirits of Mary Scarlet and Rosemarie left the Mother Earth happy, smiling, and contented with the love they could not share. Written by Mars M. Avelino, author of "The Path to Success" and "Success: The Road to Happiness or Downfall."
DAVID, the Shepherd King is the story of the greatest king of Israel. The complexities of his life are staggering. He shepherded both sheep and people. He was an empire builder but a failed parent. He was an adulterer and a murderer. He was a warrior and an outlaw. He was a musician, composing beautiful psalms still treasured and sung today. His name appears more than a thousand times in the Bible, more than any other individual. Above all, he was faithful to his calling as the mashiach, the anointed one of the Lord God.
