´´Timeless or trendy? Malls are trendy. Church should be timeless.´´ The opening words of the popular campaign ´´Still Church´´ serves as the launch point for the audiobook A Case for Being Timeless. Change sweeps across every aspect of life. Church should be a place where people can come and not feel tossed around by every new current in culture. Church should be anchored. It should stand firm. Some churches fail because they never change, but they never explain to the next generation why. Some churches fail because they DO change. We choose to not change. On purpose. With reason. We like the old paths, and we have no reason to leave them. In fact, we have every reason to remain true to them. A Case for Being Timeless makes a case for churches remaining on the old, fundamental paths on which they began rather than constantly changing in order to keep up with fads. The three parts (What, Why, and How) to this audiobook make a compelling case for why our generation of youth should choose to be passionate about the old paths. 1. Language: English.

Above all it is the story of conflict: between the Aborigines and the white settlers. In this dramatic novel, introduced here by Humphrey McQueen, a large cast of characters, historical and fictional, black and white, convict and settler, brings alive those bitter years with moments of tenderness and conciliation amid the brutality and hostility.All the while, behind the veneer of British civilisation, lies the baffling presence of Australia, a timeless land that shares with England ´´not even its seasons or its stars´´. 1.

One panic attack and concussion later, Stevie is forced to confront her past in ways that seem to defy reality.

At long last, New York Times best-selling author R. A. Salvatore returns with one of fantasy´s most beloved and enduring icons, the dark elf Drizzt Do´Urden, in an all-new trilogy full of swordplay, danger, and imaginative thrills. Centuries ago, in the city of Menzoberranzan, the City of Spiders, the City of Drow, nestled deep in the unmerciful Underdark of Toril, a young weapon master earned a reputation far above his station or that of his poor house.
