This book is devoted to the description of typical trends in development, formation and the present state of English Author Lexicography, the roots of which go back to concordances to the Bible and glossaries of the complete works of Chaucer (xvi c.). Part I, “Linguistic Dictionaries to English Writers,” presents lexicographic analysis of old and new concordances, indices, glossaries and lexicons of famous English writers with special reference to Chaucer, Milton, Shakespeare, and Dickens. It presents a modern scene of author glossaries for unfamiliar words, terms and other groups of writers’ vocabulary (e.g. Shakespeare’s insults and his erotic language). The reader is offered a detailed review of author concordances, glossaries and lexicons on the Internet, along with criticism of printed dictionaries. Part II, “Encyclopedic Reference Works to English Writers,” deals with English author encyclopedic reference books, i.e. encyclopedias, guides and companions; dictionaries of characters and place names; quotations and proverbs, and Internet encyclopedic resources. The book also provides a comprehensive list of references on author lexicography and an Index of Dictionaries to the English Writers (xvi–xxi cc.), including 300 titles of linguistic and encyclopedic dictionaries, which is a reliable user guide in the world of English author lexicography.

A self-described hillbilly from western Oklahoma, Lance Compton is one of God’s unlikely servants whose life illustrates that Jesus Christ did not cease to transform the wayward into His ambassadors on the Damascus Road. After a devastating diagnosis with cancer in the seventh grade, Lance was miraculously and spontaneously healed by God’s gracious hand. This event gave him an unquenchable desire for a deeper knowledge and fuller understanding of his Creator, and he immediately embarked upon an unorthodox journey toward that end. Lance’s peregrination of faith has brought him into fellowship and friendship with some of the country’s most influential people, allowed him to see the halls of power, reserved a seat for him at the table of one of the world’s largest Christian ministries, anointed him a zealous caretaker of society’s discards, asked him to prevent a heinous murder, shown him the extent to which God’s grace abounds, bestowed upon him the grandest of purposes, and led him to the greatest treasure of all—intimate knowledge of the Truth. You will want to walk alongside Lance as he recounts his journey upon the narrow way and learns from station to station how secure is that foundation upon which the structure of a full life stands, how careful is the Potter whose hands labor diligently to bring forth perfection, how priceless is the mosaic that reflects the light of its Maker, and how beautiful are the feet that abide in the dust for good news’ sake. Come and see.

After twenty years of working with young Christians while on the staff of Young Life, Kit Sublett has written this excellent little book to help Christians of all ages and stages go deeper in their faith and take their next step with Christ.

This book helps the Body of Christ come to a deeper understanding of warfare coupled with gaining greater appreciation for what is at the heart of the war. Readers gain valuable insight into this important facet of the faith journey Christians undertake. God's Chosen: Understanding Spiritual Warfare offers Christians the basis to learn and use the means God affords, namely His full armor equipped with His strength and mighty power. Believers prepare and fight triumphantly against evil and wicked forces by putting on His full armor. God equips them to fight offensively and defensively. Knowing Jesus fixed the fight in believers' favor help to confidently oppose the enemy and remain faithful to God. Through conscious engagement in this fight believers stand firmly winning against all odds. In 2005, during prayer, the Holy Spirit inspired me to write this book on spiritual warfare. I was going through a precarious time and as usual, I sought God in prayer and study of the Word. The Holy Spirit led me to Ephesians 6:10-18. As I studied and meditated, God moved me to begin writing on the subject of warfare. During research and study, I discovered there are not enough books recording this phase of the Christian's journey. Therefore, I saw the need to press through varied attacks to produce this work.
