An alternative history that poses the question: how would history have changed (or not) if President John F. Kennedy had survived his assassination attempt on November 22, 1963? But the differences in the time line actually date back even further, to the time of George Washington, who in a compromise becomes Lord President George I, thereby changing all subsequent history in very subtle ways. Another great piece of speculative fiction.
Revival in the church can only begin and continue when the people of God experience a renewal within their hearts and a transfomation of their minds. This can never happen unless the Word of God comes alive in us and the practicing of it becomes first nature through us. In and of itself Revival is but a beginning and 'new life' through Christ a starting point to greater things in His Name. As we begin to experience more of the 'beginning of sorrows' God waits to use a people unafraid and unashamed to walk in His Word. It will never be easier than it is today, for the Word itself tells us that the days will grow more difficult. His precious grace will never be more available than in these last days, for He has spoken it in His Word.
How to Live on Twenty-Four Hours a Day by Arnold Bennett - How to Live on 24 Hours a Day (1910), written by Arnold Bennett, is part of a larger work entitled How to Live. In this volume, he offers practical advice on how one might live (as opposed to just existing) within the confines of 24 hours a day. In the book, Bennett addressed the large and growing number of white-collar workers that had accumulated since the advent of the Industrial Revolution. In his view, these workers put in eight hours a day, 40 hours a week, at jobs they did not enjoy, and at worst hated. They worked to make a living, but their daily existence consisted of waking up, getting ready for work, working as little as possible during the work day, going home, unwinding, going to sleep, and repeating the process the next day. In short, he didn't believe they were really living. Bennett addressed this problem by urging these "salarymen" to seize their extra time, and make the most of it to improve themselves. Extra time could be found at the beginning of the day, by waking up early, and on the ride to work, on the way home from work, in the evening hours, and especially during the weekends. During this time, he prescribed improvement measures such as reading great literature, taking an interest in the arts, reflecting on life, and learning self-discipline. Bennett wrote that time is the most precious of commodities. He said that many books have been written on how to live on a certain amount of money each day. And he added that the old adage "time is money" understates the matter, as time can often produce money, but money cannot produce more time. Time is extremely limited, and Bennett urged others to make the best of the time remaining in their lives.This book has seen increased appeal in recent years due to the explosion of the self-improvement phenomenon, and the book has much relevance in today's world.
