GOD Don't Like Ugly
Author: Judson Thomas
Everything that glitters isn't gold and everything that shines isn't a diamond. Sometimes roses have a pungent smell and sometime storm clouds have a silver lining. For several members in the small community of New Iberia, Louisiana, life's ups and downs cause them to question character, integrity, commitment and plain old holiness. The devil is truly busy in the tale of twist and turns. But God and His Omnipotence can fix some of the diabolic treachery that these community members face. If only they would seek His unfathomable favor. Hold onto your seats; this is one heck of a roller coaster ride!

An inspiration for the creation of houses of prayer around the world, The Grace Outpouring is a captivating account of spiritual renewal on a Welsh hillside. When Roy Godwin turned his back on a lucrative consulting job to lead the quiet retreat center Ffald-y-Brenin in West Wales, he wasn’t sure what was next. Then God showed up. In the years since the Godwins welcomed their first surprise guests to Ffald-y-Brenin, God has drawn thousands of seekers to this converted hill-farm with a tangible presence of healing and power. Along with its accompanying study guide, The Grace Outpouring offers fascinating stories of God’s work on a remote hillside as well as inspiring insight into how God can work in readers’ own communities.

Martin Luther was a German monk, priest, professor of theology and iconic figure of the Protestant Reformation. He strongly disputed the claim that freedom from God's punishment for sin could be purchased with money. He confronted indulgence salesman Johann Tetzel with his Ninety-Five Theses in 1517. His refusal to retract all of his writings at the demand of Pope Leo X in 1520 and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms in 1521 resulted in his excommunication by the pope and condemnation as an outlaw by the Emperor. -wikipedia

This book offers a new look through the photographer's eye at the well-trodden traces of Martin Luther's life. The traditional stations of Luther's life are given their due - but not simply as picture-postcard motifs: their memorial value is revealed in architectural details, in the atmosphere of the landscapes, in timeless moods. Old alleyways seem to echo with the footsteps of the Latin scholar in Mansfeld or the student in Erfurt. The reader can envisage the medieval traveller in the images of roads that Luther travelled 500 years ago. Portraits by Wittenberg painter Cranach and historical paintings of later eras illustrate biographical incidents, giving a face to Luther's companions and opponents and a vivid impression of the places where the events took place. The text is closely linked to the images. It is not didactic; it tells Luther's story and motivates the reader to reflect on the man, his work and his time. Across the centuries, the interested reader will find much that is familiar.
