Download and read online Versailles in PDF and EPUB Exquisite photography of one of Frances most significant historical landmarks. The largest château in the world holds a thousand and one secrets, even from those who know it intimately. Versailles has been described in minute detail since the reign of Louis XIV, but numerous rooms in the palace and its outbuildings are inaccessible to the public due to their fragility or state of preservation.

From dusk on a summers evening to the veil of mist on a winters morning, these photographs reveal the many facets of Versailles and offer readers unprecedented access to this historical treasure. For this book, the Château de Versailles gave photographer Francis Hammond carte blanche access to the palace and its grounds; the resulting photographs uniquely capture the exceptional ambience and light of both famous and lesser known places. From Marie-Antoinettes boudoir, the wings of the Queens theater, or even the Orangerie on a beautiful wintery day, Versailles: A Private Invitation is richly illustrated and brings to life this extraordinary theater of unrivaled splendor, this place of hidden secrets, mysteries, and everlasting beauty, which continues to capture the hearts of visitors and aficionados of France from around the world.

Download and read online Invitation to a Journey in PDF and EPUB M. Robert Mulholland Jr. defines spiritual formation as "the process of being formed in the image of Christ for the sake of others." Compact and solid, this definition encompasses the dynamics of a vital Christian life and counters our culture's tendency to make spirituality a trivial matter or reduce it to a private affair between "me and Jesus." In Invitation to a Journey, Mulholland helps Christians new and old understand that we become like Christ gradually, not instantly. Not every personality is suited to an early morning quiet time, so Mulholland frees different personality types to express their piety differently. He reviews the classical spiritual disciplines and demonstrates the importance of undertaking our spiritual journey with (and for the sake of) others. This road map for spiritual formation is profoundly biblical and down to earth. In the finest tradition of spiritual literature, it is a vital help to Christians at any stage of their journey. This edition is revised and expanded by Ruth Haley Barton with a new foreword, practices and study guide.

Download and read online Private Desires Political Action in PDF and EPUB Private Desires, Political Action is an accessible overview of one of the most important approaches to the study of politics in the modern world - rational choice theory. Michael Laver does not set out to review this entire field, but rather to discuss how we might use rational choice theory to analyze the political competition that affects almost every aspect of our lives.
