They Were the Best of Gnomes. They Were the Worst of Gnomes.

They Were the Best of Gnomes. They Were the Worst of Gnomes.

Well, one each, really. These two Gnomes -Grimbledung and Drimblerod- are just trying to get along in life when their worlds collide. Drimblerod runs a moderately reputable second-hand wand shop that does pretty well at moving inventory. Grimbledung runs a disreputable second-hand wand wagon that he moves regularly to avoid the authorities. Drimblerod thinks he has found the perfect partner- someone he can trust (he's a fellow Gnome, after all) and one that will keep away pesky non-buying window shoppers. Little does he realize that his new-found partner suffers from Pixie Madness! And not the good kind.

The Christianity Myth

The Christianity Myth

The Christianity Myth is arguably the most interesting book on Christianity for some considerable time, because it explains the origins of both Christianity & the New Testament without resorting to divine intervention. The book addresses two fundamental questions. First, are the Christian claims that Jesus was resurrected in Jerusalem 2000 years ago well founded? Second, if not, how come 2000 years later, we have a major world religion based entirely on a false premise? Christians may well find themselves challenged by the contents of this book
