The gripping story of two families struggling to overcome their own destinies. A mosaic of treachery and revenge, of possible and impossible loves, and of the great adventure that is living and surviving in a land marked by intolerance and outrage. Marian Miller, an NGO aid worker, is asked to write a report on illegal Jewish settlements on Palestinian territories. In order to do so, she wants to make sure she understands both sides of the story. Marian arranges a meeting in Israel with Ezekiel Zucker, an elderly man who, like many others, has a lot to tell and also, a secret to hide. Ezekiel will narrate his story as if it were a massive jigsaw puzzle with many complex pieces and Marian will tell him the version she's familiar with: the Arab one. At the twilight of the 19th century, the Zuckers are banned from their homeland of Russia because they are Jewish. After undergoing unspeakable horrors and injustices under the tsar's rule, they set out for the Promised Land and buy land owned by the Ziads, an Arab family headed by a man named Ahmed. The two men, Ahmed Ziad and Samuel Zucker, will establish a strong bond, a friendship that can overcome religious and political differences and that will continue on for generations. This riveting family saga that culminates in 1948 is not only Julia Navarro's best and most ambitious novel yet, it's a tale filled with real people taking responsibility for their own destinies by following their dreams and fighting for their lives. An unforgettable novel that, like all of history's greatest books, conceals many novels within.

Un jueves de mañana en 1981, cuatro mil campesinos, huyendo un escuadrón de la muerte salvadoreño patrocinado por los Estados Unidos, trastabilló bajando una ladera por un monte cubierto de follaje, hacia el Río Lempa. Algunos fueron indiscriminadamente fusilados por las ametralladoras de soldados y helicópteros; otros se ahogaron mientras la corriente los arrastraba por el río. Los demás escaparon para vivir los próximos ocho años en campamentos de refugiados en Honduras. In 1989 muchos de estos refugiados regresaron a El Salvador como la comunidad repatriada de Valle Nuevo. Compañeros relata las historias de una relación de veinticinco años de acompañamiento, sanidad, y perdón entre Valle Nuevo y una asociación de iglesias en los Estados Unidos, las Comunidades de Misión Shalom. Los dos grupos han llegado a adoptar una comunión transnacional entre si a pesar de los abismos económicos, políticos, y espirituales que existen hoy. Esta obra es un esfuerzo colectivo y colaborativo de relatos y reflexión teológica, entrelazando relatos orales y escritos de sufrimiento, gratitud, de compartir, recordar, y proclamar la muerte de Cristo hasta que él venga.

DIOS TIENE UNA TIERRA PROMETIDA PARA QUE LA RECLAMESEste, bien podría ser el secreto mejor guardado en la iglesia.

Es un depósito de poder. ¡Estás totalmente equipado!Tal vez te sientas estancado, atrapado en la rutina. Luchas las mismas batallas y enfrentas las mismas tentaciones. Te preguntas, ¿Es esto lo mejor que la vida cristiana llega a ser?Hay buenas noticias. Fuiste hecho para mucho más. Fuiste hecho para Días de gloria. Una nueva época de logro, descubrimiento y fortaleza. Deja atrás los «no puedo». Pon el «Dios puede» delante de ti. Es el momento de entrar a la Tierra Prometida.• Deja atrás el miedo y la preocupación, mientras peleas desde la victoria, no por la victoria.• Deja de vivir por vivir y atrévete a creer que tus mejores días están por venir.• Supera el rechazo al convencerte profundamente de que eres un hijo de Dios para siempre.• Enfrenta la duda al reconocer la Palabra de Dios como la autoridad final.• Recupérate de tus errores y pon tu pasado en el pasado.TIENES TODO LO QUE NECESITAS PARA SER TODO LO QUE DIOS DESEA

One of History’s Most Sacred Treasures. . . An Age-Old Secret Conspiracy. . . Now the Truth Is Revealed. . . . Marco Valoni, chief of Italy’s Art Crimes Department, is convinced that a fire in the Cathedral of Turin that leaves a strangely mutilated, unidentifiable body on the scene was no accident. It is only the last in a long line of mishaps, going back over a hundred years, that have occurred in the church – which happens to be home to what millions of the faithful believe is that authentic burial shroud of Jesus Christ. Valoni and his crack team of specialists embark on an investigation that soon leads them into dangerous territory, territory controlled by some of the most powerful men in the world. Not only do they discover evidence of a secret Christian sect that traces its priests to the very disciples of Jesus himself, but also that the Knights Templar – supposedly destroyed forever when Philip the Fair of France watched their last Grand Master, Jacques de Molay, burn at the stake in 1314 – may not have disappeared at all, and may indeed be very much alive and active in the 21st century. Julia Navarro skillfully weaves the Italians’ thrilling present-day investigation with the spine-tingling history of the Holy Shroud itself, and with a chilling tale of ancient rivals, equally devoted to the relic, and equally willing to sacrifice anything – perhaps even their immortal souls–to possess it. From communities of the Middle East founded by Jesus himself, to medieval Byzantium, to the highest councils of the Vatican and the boardrooms that run the world today, The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud is a provocative page-turner of the highest order – one that will challenge you to believe. "The screams of the tortured men echoed within the thick walls of the dungeons. How many days had passed since they were arrested? The Templars had lost count. . . . A man, his face concealed by a hood, watched the suffering of the knights from the shadows, these knights who had once wielded their swords and risked their very lives to defend the Cross. Reveling in their torment, sick with avarice and cruelty, Philippe signaled the torturers to go on…. Broken and bloodied, Jacques de Molay could hardly see, but he sensed who it was beneath the hood. A smile came to the Grand Master’s lips when the king demanded that he confess where he had hidden the holy shroud of Jesus. At last Philippe saw that it was futile to continue. De Molay would not yield…. Fire began to burn the Templars’ ravaged flesh. Jacques de Molay’s eyes remained fixed on Philippe, and before him and the people of Paris the Grand Master proclaimed his innocence and called down divine justice on the king of France and Pope Clement, summoning them to stand with him before the judgment of God within the year. A shiver ran down Philippe’s spine as de Molay’s words rang out. No, God could not be on the side of these Templars, these heretics. He, Philippe, king of France, was obeying the laws of the Church. But was he obeying the laws of God?" —From The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud From the Hardcover edition.
