Augustus: The Life and Times of Rome’s Greatest Emperor – Augustus, born Gaius Octavious Thurinus in 63 BCE, was the first emperor of Rome. From the moment his great uncle and adoptive father, Julius Caesar, died when he was eighteen, his life was one action-packed conflict after another. From the unexpected inheritance of a hefty fortune and a heap of responsibilities, to fighting off a foe who should be a friend, to seeking revenge on Caesar’s assassins, he had his work cut out for him. Throw in an affair with a beautiful woman who happened to be pregnant and married to an aristocrat, an unruly daughter, and roomful of Senators who just didn’t know how to get things done, and you’ve got one heck of a life.
Augustus succeeded at many things during his nearly forty-year run as the leader of the Roman world. He reinvented the skyline of Rome, had the sewer system cleaned out and made to function, conquered Egypt and routed their plentiful grain to a starving Roman Empire, and promoted traditional Roman family values—not to be confused with traditional modern American or Western European family values—by giving attractive benefits to those who got married and had multiple children.
Along with revitalizing the city, Augustus sought to promote great writers like Virgil and Horace and encourage a renewal of religious piety. Changing laws was easy enough, but changing hearts proved to be a rather difficult matter. In his book entitled Augustus: The Life And Times Of Rome’s Greatest Emperor author Simon T. Bailey brilliantly captures the true essence of Augustus as well as the time period in which he ruled in ancient Rome.
Fields of the Fatherless: Discover the Joy of Compassionate Living – In Bible times, God maintained a special provision for the less fortunate. As His people harvested their fields, they were instructed to always leave a portion of the crops for those in need. Today, God’s heart continues to beat for the poor, the widows, and the fatherless. And as His children, our divine commission remains the same, a directive that’s nothing less than the heart of the Christian message.
Author Tom Davis encourages us to move beyond words and become Christ to those in need. Join Tom as he shares a journey from around the world and our own backyard as people’s lives are changed through the power of compassion. Filled with remarkable stories of hope and mercy,Fields of the Fatherless will inspire you to love “the least of these,” and discover the joy found in becoming the hands and feet of Christ, His way.
