Apprentice in Death Book Description :

THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Lieutenant Eve Dallas must hunt down the deadly snipers terrorizing Manhattan in this fast-paced In Death thriller from J. D. Robb. The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park’s ice-skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be. Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD but never one like this. A review of the security videos reveals that the victims were killed with a tactical laser rifle fired by a sniper, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the list of locations where the shooter could have set up seems endless, the number of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer. Eve’s husband, Roarke, has unlimited resources—and genius—at his disposal. And when his computer program leads Eve to the location of the sniper, she learns a shocking fact: There were two—one older, one younger. Someone is being trained by an expert in the science of killing, and they have an agenda. Central Park was just a warm-up. And as another sniper attack shakes the city to its core, Eve realizes that though we’re all shaped by the people around us, there are those who are just born evil...

The Reformed Apprentice Volume 3 Book Description :

This is the third volume in the Reformed Apprentice workbook series, teaching Reformed Theology in a simple but interactive manner. This workbook covers the Doctrine of God and the biblical teaching of the Trinity. The main purpose of the workbook is to come into a deeper knowledge and relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ as he has revealed himself to the church in his Word and by his Spirit through the centuries in Reformed Theology. The workbook extensively quotes the early church fathers, the Reformers, the Puritans, and Reformed theologians from various ages in order to aid the Reformed Apprentice in understanding how the Bible teaches us about who God is and what God has done. It covers God's divine attributes, the Trinity, the divinity of the Son, the divinity of the Holy Spirit and the decrees of God. There is nothing like this series of interactive workbooks anywhere in the Reformed community. They are unique workbooks designed to bring Reformed Theology to students of the bible in its various facets. In old England, an apprentice was a novice who engaged in a covenant with a tradesman to learn a particular trade. A workbook of this kind was created to engage the student of Scripture to be apprenticed under the teachers of Reformed Theology, thus, a Reformed Apprentice. This workbook does not need to be completed in a short timeframe, nor is it governed by a specific amount of time. The Reformed Apprentice has as much time to complete each section at their own pace as they need in order to walk more closely with Jesus Christ, and understand the importance of the doctrine of God.
