Discovering the Maltese Falcon and Sam Spade: The &hellip by Richard Layman

I love the story of THE MALTESE FALCON, not only as it is told in Hammett's novel but also as it is portrayed in John Huston's movie. I can never read enough about Dashiell Hammett, Joseph Shaw, Humphrey Bogart, Peter Lorre, Gladys George, Sydney Greenstreet, Elisha Cook Jr., Mary Astor, Barton MacLane, Lillian Hellman, the Knights of Malta, BLACK MASK, San Francisco after World War I and Raymond Chandler.

This book has enough anecdotes and background material to satisfy even the most ardent enthusiast. My favorite piece is an account by Mary Astor of her experiences while filming for her role as Brigid O'Shaughnessy in the 1941 version of THE MALTESE FALCON.

God's Creative Power for Healing: Minibook by Capps Charles

5.0 out of 5 stars God's Word Is Medicine, 24 April 2005
Capps believes that people can receive a divine healing through the use of God's Word in much the same way that a physical healing is attained by taking medicine.He lists numerous scriptual passages to be used in combatting different types of diseases and conditions. His prescription requires that these bible verses be spoken at least two or three times daily. If the condition worsens, he advises us to double our efforts.
Capps' little booklet is clearly written. His message is not really unique since it is similar to the approaches to healing advocated by Kenneth Hagin, Jim Glennon, Ralph C. Brittain, Dodie Osteen and many others.
