The next book of H. A. Covington''s Northwest novel trilogy, A Mighty Fortress picks up where A Distant Thunder left off, and serves as a bridge to the final novel in the series, The Hill of the Ravens. In a not too distant future, the United States is on the verge of breakup and collapse. America is hopelessly bogged down in an overseas war against the Islamic world in a dozen countries that seems to have no end, while at the same time the nation is torn by years of bloody domestic terrorism on the part of white militias in the Pacific Northwest, and Hispanic separatists in the Southwest. The economy, the government, and the legal system are falling apart. America is going broke and on the verge of meltdown, as well as facing a major Arab offensive in the Middle East. Finally, the Federal government has no choice but to submit to negotiations with the terrorists, and a peace conference is called at Longview, Washington. Cody Brock is a tough Seattle street kid, a runaway who joined the Northwest Volunteer Army at sixteen. By day he attends Hillside High School, where he falls in love with the cheerleader, homecoming queen, and budding actress, Kelly Shipman. By night he rides with the most deadly of all the terrorist hit squads, the murderous crew of the gangster-like Robert "Bobby Bells" DiBella, along with his girl comrade Nightshade. The two of theem are selected to accompany the rebel delegation to Longview, where suddenly Cody is compelled to confront a ghost from his past. His Jewish past...

Young Cayleb Ahrmahk has accomplished things few people could even dream of. Having smashed a hostile alliance of no less than five princedoms and won the hand of the beautiful young Queen Sharleyan of Chisholm, together they have created the Charisian Empire, the greatest naval power in the history of Safehold. Charis is transformed into a place of refuge for all who treasure freedom. But their success may prove short-lived. The Group of Four, the clique that controls the Church of God Awaiting – and, through the church, most of Safehold – has decreed their destruction. Mother Church’s entire purpose is to prevent all to which Charis is committed, and she will not rest until it has been erased forever. But there are still matters about which the Church knows nothing, including Cayleb and Sharleyan’s adviser, friend, and guardian, the mystic warrior-monk named Merlin Athrawes. Merlin knows all about catastrophic battles against impossible odds, because he is in fact the cybernetic avatar of a young woman named Nimue Alban, who died a thousand years ago. Mother Church’s juggernaut rumbles down on Charis, but Merlin Athrawes and a handful of extraordinary human beings stand in its path. The Group of Four is about to discover just how potent the power of human freedom truly is.

A Mighty Fortress is the personal account of the Captain and crew of a lead bomber in the enormous formation raids made by the 8th Airforce during the last few months of the Second World War. It is an extraordinary tale of heroism and bravery on the part of the entire crew of just one B17 amongst hundreds - but the one B17 that meant most to them. Flying a total of 27 missions before the war came to an end in May 1945, Alling tells, with great restraint, the story of what it was like to be there, over the skies of enemy territory, constantly on the look out for German fighters; of the enormity of some of the raids they were part of and the consequences for those on the ground; of the planes around them that fell out of the sky under enemy attack, the horror and the determination to succeed. The book gives a unique insight into the lives of one crew of one plane as the War neared its end. Charles B. Alling received the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal with four Oak Leaf Clusters during the Second World War. He graduated from Yale University in 1947. In 1988, he retired and studied Ethics at Oxford University Graduate School in England. In 1989, he founded the Alling Institute for Ethics. The institute is affiliated with The Foundation for Leadership and Ethics in New York City of which Alling is Chairman Emeritus. Alling serves on the Board of Visitors of the Air University at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama, an appointment by former Secretary of Defense, Bill Cohen. He lives in Kennebunk, Maine. “In a fascinating way, Chuck Alling recalls his days as a pilot flying B-17’s over Germany. He is truly a member of ‘The Greatest Generation’ and from his book, written from the heart, people can learn a lot about the laughs and the tears of World War II.” - Former President George H. W. Bush

Award-winning historian Steven Ozment gives us the fullest portrait possible of the German nation, holding a mirror up to an entire civilization- one that has been alternately Western Europe's most successful and most perilous. Taking us from the tribes of the Roman Empire and the medieval dynasties to the fall of the Berlin Wall and reunification, Ozment shows that the Germans are a people who desire national unity yet have kept themselves from it by aligning with autocratic territorial governments and regional cultures. From Luther, Kant, Goethe, and Beethoven to Marx, Einstein and Hitler, the country's leading figures have always tried to become more than ordinary mortals. Ozment brilliantly captures the soul of a nation that is at once ordered and chaotic, disciplined and obsessive, proud and uncertain.

To celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, a momentous occasion in the history of the church, composer Erik Meyer crafted a dynamic work based on Martin Luther's beloved hymn "A Mighty Fortress." The triptych itself is in three movements, intended to be useful for prelude, offertory, and postlude (or performed together in a recital setting). As an added bonus, also included are a hymn introduction and two alternate harmonizations for accompanying congregational singing.

Essay from the year 2008 in the subject Theology - Comparative Religion Studies, grade: A, Northern Arizona University, course: Reformation Europe, language: English, abstract: Martin Luther, the founder of Protestantism, is often considered the man who ended the Middle Ages and ushered in the Renaissance. Indeed, Luther’s great impulses, “a reverence for authority, a vehement spirit, a cutting wit, a special talent for obscenity, and, most important, a contempt for sinful human nature, coupled with a profound and melancholy awareness of the body’s fate at death,” combine the best and worst of both epochs. (86) His attempt to roll Christian doctrine back to the days of St. Paul of Tarsus were viewed as heretical by the Church he had once fervently believed in. He eventually lambasted Jews and, especially, the Pope in the most vehement words and obscene imagery he could muster. He was a scriptural fundamentalist who believed bigamy and polygamy were acceptable in that they were not explicitly condemned in the Bible, yet felt adultery should be punished by death. Scholars consider his influence on the German language comparable to Shakespeare’s on English. His fight against the papacy inspired peasant revolts against the entire social order, which Luther explicitly rejected. He disbelieved in the geographic reality of hell and purgatory, but believed in the existence of witchcraft and sorcery. He was complex and contradictory, but profoundly influential.
