We all want the blessings of peace and harmony. What this remarkably enjoyable and transformative book shows us is that those blessings, and many more, often begin with small words of greeting or a tiny act of kindness.
One Small Deed (can change the world) is an unusual book, combining great true stories with a vital and inspirational message for today. Compiled by bestselling author Nachman Seltzer, here are stories of both the amazing and the everyday miracles that a few small words or actions can bring about. We read how a man’s daily greeting to a factory guard saves four lives and how a badly-pronounced “‘allo” brings a young man back to his Jewish roots. A Jewish grocer extends credit to a poor Irish family and four decades later the Jewish world reaps the benefits; a businessman is saved from financial ruin by a casual twenty-dollar donation to an annoying old man. All these acts were “one small deed.”
These are stories that will touch us, often amuse us, and always inspire us. And One Small Deed (can change the world) will also change us. For the better.
War. Peace. Treason. Friendship. A novel like none you’ve ever read.
War and treachery threaten the legendary kingdom of Khazar. And only the young prince, Istrak, untried, unsure of himself, can lead his people back to harmony.
The Betrayal is a novel too big to be defined by a simple description. It’s a page-turner, with non-stop action and surprises. It’s a family saga, following the lives, and the conflicts, of the many members of Khazar’s royal house. It’s a human drama, a story of growing up, of friendship and frailty; it’s a mystery, with an unknown traitor plotting against the king.
A tremendously popular bestseller in its original Hebrew, The Betrayal is a gripping saga that blends the mythic history of a fascinating kingdom with a compelling and contemporary message.
