At the turn of the last century, the men who dared to think big changed the business landscape foreverand grew fabulously wealthy in the process. Publishers Weekly, February 14, 2011, *STAR*BURLEIGH, Robert. The Message of John recounts the unforgettable events that John witnessed, but it was believing them that changed his life. Set in beautiful Wales, the writing is exquisite. MC reads are my favorites. Sandlin's vision is unique and this book is a visual treat. This book came exactly as expected. It just wasn’t professional enough although Tyler, who just walked in, thought it was perfection and teased about it being the new café work uniform at the coffee shop she owned. I was disappointed with the realization that “Cherry” is going to probably be his love interest. I would've rated the book 5 stars if not for the omission of "The Kiss," and if pedaling and fingering were in the book.

The glorious verses of the Iliad recount a conflict in which rage and outrage spur men to action and suggest that their “bellicose society of gleaming metals and rattling weapons” is not so very distant from more recent campaigns of “shock and awe.” And, centuries before Zorba, Greece was a land where music, dance, and freely flowing wine were essential to the high life. Granting equal time to the sacred and the profane, Cahill rivets our attention to the legacies of an ancient and enduring worldview.
