In his book In the Shadow of Angels,, Charles Maldon reflects upon that season of his life when he was without the peace of God. He presents the contribution of several extraordinary saints whom he addresses as angels who are largely responsible for his journey and victory into the perfect peace of God. He reveals the uniqueness of each angel and relates the love and care provided by each when he needed someone to encourage and stand by him on his march toward his purpose and calling in God. These individuals displayed strength and character that became an incentive for him to strive to be the best person that God ordained him to be. Without them being there, his life in the Deep South would almost definitely have taken a different direction. By the mercy of God, he encountered each of them at a time when he was in desperate need of love and encouragement to keep from fainting. Each of them left him with a lifetime memory and a victory of healing and peace and thankfulness.

The laughter still rings through her home, the smell of his room, the trophies displayed on his shelf, the little pieces of paper with friend's numbers scattered in his top drawer. Every word she has ever spoken for the past 21 years plays over and over in her mind. Her dreams stacked in a neat little pile in the corner of her room, for her dreams would be on hold while she lived through the eyes of her son. A knock on the door defined her future. Her life now a manifestation of her past, for her future would repeat every 11th day of the month, a reminder of the dreadful knock on her door. A flag draped coffin her son would arrive on a snowy December day. The tears that fall from a mother's heart, her sorrow, her memories and her love will linger in your soul.

Before the year 1989, that is, before the fall of Communism in Poland, the Communist government ordered the destruction of any documents that could have implicated them in the persecution of people opposed to the Communist party. The documents would have been proof of their ignominious actions. Therefore, they were taken away by the truckload from the archives and burned outside of the city limits. My documents were destroyed in Bialystok, as well. After turning down a job with the Polish Secret Police, they harassed me, and blacklisted me so I was unable to work. It was in Bialystok where my persecution was most severe. Nevertheless, most copies of my documents were preserved at the Ministry of Interior in Warsaw... ...The decision was made to escape immediately from the place of danger, and once again, we took what we could. Each of us, like a flock of geese with my father in the lead, slowly walked away from the river fortress toward the woods. ...The fog slowly subsided. When we reached a haystack, my father announced that this would now be our home. ...One night there came an announcement from an airplane with its engine turned off for a moment (so as not to drown out words). The announcement, made in Polish, was that everyone should leave this area because soon the war was going to be over. ...An air raid followed and the entire area was bombed... "I read it and I was touched. I finished reading Mr. Henry Czajewskis extraordinary life testament. The issues in the book are close to my heart because I know that it is not a work of his imagination, but rather a poignant truth. I shed tears when reading certain parts of this book and I was in awe of his enthusiasm, optimism, and sense of humor. What a wonderful piece of work " -- B.F., retired doctor of psychology Publishers website: http: //

The Shadow of the Cross dispels one of the greatest myths of all time, that Jesus did not die on the cross, and in fact lived on to continue his ministry.. The author makes a detailed analysis of the secret life of Jesus, that was known to the early Christians and which was suppressed later by the Church of Rome. Did Jesus really travel incognito under the name of Yuz Asaph? Did he really marry Mary Magdalene and father her children? Many religious scholars and historians believe that a 2000 year old tomb in Srinagar, Kashmir, known as the Rozabal, was the final resting place of Jesus, 'The Prophet of the Book'. In the Shadow of the Cross explores the scientific as well as the historic facts, bringing to light a truth that has lain buried beneath 2000 years of falsehood, and which culminates in the greatest conspiracy of all time.

Former law enforcement professional Lillie Leonardi has always lived with her feet planted in two separate worlds--the metaphysical and the physical. In the Shadow of a Badge, her previously self-published spiritual memoir, takes you on a dramatic journey of what happens when Leonardi's two very distinct realities become dangerously intertwined. During her work at the crash site of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, surrounding the fateful events of September 11th, Leonardi is forced to confront her connection to the divine--something she has struggled with since her youth. Her gripping personal account of the 12 days she spent acting as an FBI liaison between the law enforcement and social service agencies carries you into a world that combines the factual and logistical with the angelic and mystical. After witnessing what she describes as a "field of angels" during her first minutes at the crash site, Leonardi must finally reconcile the opposing sides of her life. We walk with her through the diagnosis of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, experience the guilt and fear that grip her, and witness the remarkable transformation of her soul as she discovers that forgiveness, of self and others, can be the best remedy. As an inspiring example of what it really means to be called to service, Leonardi shows that it's never too late to find your spiritual path and life's purpose.

Historically, angels have been viewed as either disconnected objects of speculative investigation, or as mystifying beings mysteriously influencing our lives. However, this is not how the Bible describes them. Scripture, in sober and straightforward terms, simply describes what angels do. It is a practical depiction, a pastoral presentation. We see messages of encouragement, revelation, and guidance; we see judgment and correction; we see strengthening; we see journeying; we see prayer and worship. The biblical focus concerning angels is on ministry to the people of God. Angels are one way that God intervenes in human affairs in response to pastoral concerns or problems. Created to minister, angels are best understood, not using speculative or detached theology, but through applied and pastoral lenses. Using only Scripture and a classic model of pastoral theology as the framework, this book shows practically how angels are employed by God to bless his church and people as his servant ministers who glorify him alone.

For Love of God, Patriotism, and All Things Four-Legged could also have been the title of this book. Everything written in this book is true. It is a story of God's great love and grace in one person's life. This is also a story of God's great blessings--of Christian parents who took the time to teach honest values and virtues to their children. It is a story of great love for family, for America, and for friends. The story includes some amazing horses and one incredible dog. It is the story of loss, grief, and of life's lessons learned. Above all, I wrote it in gratitude to the good Lord for allowing me to live out my life in the shadow of His wings.
