Ivan the Terrible: Russia's Most Insane Tsar
Ivan the Terrible: Russia's Most Insane Tsar
Price: 2.05

3.0 out of 5 stars A summary of Ivan's reign, 15 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a summary of Ivan and the influence he has had on Russia. His reputation for instant slaughter was bad but those were hard times and maybe his temper was short lived. It seems to me that he was no worse than Henry VIII.

The NRSV has brought the language up to date without using paraphrasing or losing any of the literal meaning. There is a table of contents that link you to each book and thence to each chapter, so you cam move around easily. With the Apocrypha you have all you need to learn from God's word.

Swan Commercial Plastic Water Urn 8L
Price: 45.24

4.0 out of 5 stars Water urn 8Litre for church use, 31 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a handy size about 16" tall for it fitted in the church kitchen under the wall cupboards. Nice size, makes nearly 2 gallons of tea or coffee. It is easy to carry (when empty of course) and keeps water at or very near boiling with minimum steaming. The thermostat works well and the plastic body means it is not too hot outside. Keep away from children.
