Stolen Idols

Stolen Idols by E. Phillips Oppenheim

Stolen Idols by E. Phillips Oppenheim

Two temple statues, one with the most beautiful of features, the other a hideous sight, are at the core of this tale of adventure and the supernatural. Carved by Chinese craftsmen, they have stood to either side of the great Buddha for hundreds of years, worshiped and protected by generations of priests.Taken together, they represent human nature in balance, the spiritual with the bestial, the Soul with the Body. But what if they are separated? Ancient legend warns of disaster to anyone who disturbs that balance. Young Gregory Ballaston of England, however, gives no credence to such dire threats when he and a friend set out to steal the idols, which are rumored to conceal a treasure in jewels. His friend dies in the attempt and one of the idols is presumably stolen by his murderers. Gregory nearly loses his own life in the effort but manages to get away with the other idol – the bestial Body. What will be the outcome for Gregory, or the beautiful young woman he meets in China and courts on the journey home with his prize? Even before he sets sail for home, the idol begins to prey on Gregory Ballaston.

The Hunting of the Snark

The Hunting of the Snark by Lewis Carroll

The Hunting of the Snark by Lewis Carroll

The Bellman, the Butcher, the Baker, the Beaver and others named and unnamed provide a fast-paced, almost maniacal, romp to find the ellusive Snark. In the reading, you begin to suspect that Dr. Seuss may have found some inspiration from Carroll. The reading is a fast ride of thirty minutes and is suitable for children and adults alike.

The Wizard

The Wizard by Henry Rider Haggard

The Wizard by Henry Rider Haggard

Described by the author, best known for his King Solomon’s Mines, as “a tale of victorious faith,” this story begins on a Sunday afternoon in an English church. Most of the book, though, is set in Africa, and the adventure story is as engaging as any of Haggard’s African tales. What makes this one different is the religious question: What has happened to miracles in the church? Is there any power left in Jesus’ promise, “Whoso that believeth in me, the works that I do he shall do also, and whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do”?

Between the Lines

Between the Lines by Boyd Cable

Between the Lines by Boyd Cable

This book, all of which has been written at the Front within sound of the German guns and for the most part within shell and rifle range, is an attempt to tell something of the manner of struggle that has gone on for months between the lines along the Western Front, and more especially of what lies behind and goes to the making of those curt and vague terms in the war communiqués. I think that our people at Home will be glad to know more, and ought to know more, of what these bald phrases may actually signify, when, in the other sense, we read ‘between the lines.’
