eye of the god takes the fascinating history surrounding the Hope Diamond and weaves it together with a present-day plot to steal the jewel from the Smithsonian Institute.
We follow Alex and Isaac Weld, the most lucrative jewel thieves in the world, in their quest to steal the gem, which according to legend was once the eye of a Hindu idol named Rama Sita. When it was stolen in the 17th century, it is said that the idol cursed all those who would possess it. That won’t stop the brilliant and ruthless Weld brothers.
However, they are not prepared for Dr. Abigail Mitchell, the beautiful Smithsonian Director, who has her own connection to the Hope Diamond and a deadly secret to keep. Abby committed long ago that she would not serve a god made with human hands, and the “eye of the god” is no exception. Her desire is not for wealth, but for wisdom. She seeks not power, but restoration.
When the dust settles over the last great adventure of the Hope Diamond, readers will understand the “curse” that has haunted its legacy is nothing more than the greed of evil men who bring destruction upon themselves. No god chiseled from stone can direct the fates of humankind, nor can it change the course of God’s story.

A seasonal Christmas tale of regret and forgiveness
Come Christmas Eve, the Newson family is in deep mourning for the tragic event that took place exactly one year ago.
In fact, the family has been torn apart by sorrow and guilt throughout the entire year, seemingly without hope of finding either a closure or a resolution.
However, as David Newson reluctantly makes his way back to his house, that is no longer a home, from work on Christmas Eve, a sudden violent snow storm blows itself across his path, leading him to meet the powerful, enigmatic form of Nick, apparently a chance passer-by willing to be a Good Samaritan and help a stranded motorist.
At it turns out, Nick is prepared to help the Newsons a great deal more than that. He is willing, in fact, to offer them redemption – but are they willing to accept his Christmas gift, and who exactly is he anyway?

In Philosophy of Religion Basics: A Jargon-Free Guide for Beginners, Dr. Doug Erlandson provides an easy-to-understand introduction to the philosophy of religion. Its simple and non-technical style covers the major topics in philosophy of religion in a way that even someone with no familiarity with philosophy will be able to understand.
Philosophy of Religion Basics has grown out of Dr. Erlandson’s twenty-five years of teaching philosophy, eight at the University of Nebraska, where he specialized in the philosophy of religion, and an additional seventeen at Southeast Community College in Lincoln. During this time he has published articles on the various issues covered in the philosophy of religion and has constructed numerous written handouts for his students. Recognizing that many anthologies in the philosophy of religion as well as single-author texts are extremely difficult for the uninitiated reader to grasp, Dr. Erlandson has prepared an easy to understand discussion of the topics commonly discussed in philosophy of religion classes and textbooks.
