Librivox: Bible (STE) NT 20: Ιακώβου (James) by Stephanos 1550Join Now to Follow

Aπευθύνεται στις δώδεκα διασκορπισμένες φυλές του Ισραήλ και σε όλους όσους πιστεύουν στο όνομα του Κυρίου μας Ιησού Χριστού. Είναι μια σειρά προτροπών και ενθαρρύνσεων , που σχετίζεται άμεσα με την επί όρους ομιλία. Επικεντρώνεται στο να αναζωπυρώσει την γνήσια ζωντανή πίστη και στην εξάσκηση της μετάνοιας , της εμπιστοσύνης, της ταπείνωσης και της αυτοκυριαρχίας. Ο Άγιος Ιάκωβος είχε εκλεγεί από τους αποστόλους ως ο πρώτος αρχιεπίσκοπος της Ιερουσαλήμ. Ζούσε μια ζωή άγια, αυστηρή και ασκητική. Σύμφωνα με την παράδοση , ακριβώς πριν την πολιορκία της Ιερουσαλήμ , αφού άπιστοι Ιουδαίοι τον γκρέμισαν από τον ναό, τον λιθοβόλησαν μέχρι που τον σκότωσαν. It is addressed to the twelve tribes of Jerusalem which are scattered abroad and to every one that believes in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. A series of admonitions and exhortations , it has many direct parallels with the Sermon on the Mount. He concentrates on rekindling true living faith and on the practice of repentance , trust, humility, patience, and self control. James was elected as the first bishop of Jerusalem by the apostles He led a holy strict and ascetic life. According to tradition , just before the besiege of Jerusalem, being thrown from the temple by unfaithful Jews was stoned to death. (Summary by peaceuntoyou)

He has been the famous Sleeper for centuries. A fanatic socialist, the main character awakes to see his nightmares realized, and the future revealed to him in all its horrors and malformities. The people adore him, and their masters - the supervisors of his legacy who rule in his name - do not want him breathing. (Summary by Stephan and Wikipedia)

Librivox: String of Pearls, The by UnknownJoin Now to Follow

The tale of Sweeney Todd has had many incarnations, most famously the stage and movie musical by Stephen Sondheim. But it all started in 1846 with a serialized telling of the story titled “The String of Pearls” in the weekly magazine “The People's Periodical and Family Library”. Called by some a romance, by others a horror story, it is one of the earliest murder mysteries. In “The String of Pearls”, Sweeney Todd is less sympathetic than in some of his later incarnations – a perfect villain, totally self-seeking with no redeeming qualities. How the deeds of Todd are uncovered and how he is brought to justice make a most intriguing tale, but one probably not suited for the very young and certainly not for the squeamish.

In this work, Kropotkin points out what he considers to be the fallacies of the economic systems of feudalism and capitalism, and how he believes they create poverty and scarcity while promoting privilege. He goes on to propose a more decentralised economic system based on mutual aid and voluntary cooperation, asserting that the tendencies for this kind of organisation already exist, both in evolution and in human society.
