Für dieses Unternehmen scheinen sie auch eine einflußreiche Verbündete gefunden zu haben: die schöne Marguerite Blakeney, die aus Paris stammt und in London unglücklich verheiratet ist. Aber Scarlet Pimpernel geht seinen Häschern nicht in die Falle ...Waghalsige Abenteuer, raffinierte Intrigen und eine zauberhafte Liebesgeschichte – der Roman von Baroness Orczy ist eine unglaublich spannende Lektüre.

The story of Charles Haddon Spurgeon's life is nothing less than titanic. Within 2 years and 6 months of accepting the pastorate of the New Park Street Chapel as a boy of 19, the Sunday service grew from 242 to over 7,000 in attendance. What can account for the meteoric rise in popularity? Why did so many wish to hear his sermons? It is the same reason why one ought to study the sermons of Spurgeon to this day: in a famished land of moralism, he preached the bread of Jesus Christ. Containing the first three volumes of the sixty-three volumes published from the Metropolitan Tabernacle pulpit, this book holds 164 sermons, 'as plump as a partridge, and as full of meat as an egg.' David A. Attebury is currently pursuing a Masters of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

Es war dicht besetzt vom Ruß der vorbeifahrenden Lokomotiven, aber an einigen Stellen war der schwarze Überzug verwischt und abgescheuert. ›Da sieht man, wo sie die Leiche abgesetzt haben. Aber, holla, Watson, was haben wir denn da? Das ist zweifellos ein Blutfleck.‹ Er deutete auf einige schwache Farbmale entlang dem Fensterrahmen. ›Und dort auf der Treppenstufe ist noch einer.

Capture the fantasy, thrills, and far-flung adventure of the first three novels in Terry Brooks’s enchanting Magic Kingdom of Landover series–now for the first time in one gripping volume. Chicago lawyer Ben Holiday can’t fathom what lies ahead when he purchases Landover–a magical kingdom of chivalry and sorcery–from Meeks, the mysterious seller who placed the ad. Weary and jaded, Ben clings to the ad’s promise: “Escape into your dreams.” But Landover is not the enchanted idyll he expected. The kingdom is in ruin. The barons refuse to recognize Ben as King, a dragon is decimating the countryside, and a demon lord has challenged any prospective ruler to a fatal duel. To make matters worse, the Paladin, renowned champion of the Kings of Landover, seems to be merely a legend. Ben’s only allies are a bumbling court magician, a talking dog turned court scribe, and the beautiful Willow, who is part girl, part tree. With his friends in tow, Ben sets out to claim the throne. But when Meeks decides he wants Landover back, Ben will face supernatural foes of every stripe to prove himself worthy of the kingship. The question is: Can he survive?
