Every human being has a life, yet very few know the truth about life. In The Secrets and Wonders of Life, author Sang Chiong ponders the marvel and miracle of being alive. The challenge is that we have only one life on planet Earth, and we need to know the truth about life in order to get it right. How many know without the slightest doubt what life is all about? Know the truth, and it can set you free—free from ignorance, stupidity, bondage, poverty, unhappiness, stress, sickness, disharmony, and all the things that can make you stumble on the complex road of life. We quest for the truth and a life of enlightenment, wisdom, freedom, prosperity, happiness, health, and love—everything that make life worth living. With the right thoughts, we can think, feel, do, and live rightly. Author Sang Chiong explains that thought is the DNA or blueprint for of all our actions in life. Hence, it is of utmost importance to have the right thoughts about life and our true path. The Secrets and Wonders of Life offers the truth about life so that we can bring out the best in ourselves.

Here we have an endless stream of exotica-exotic living things growing from the ground and exotic critters of all shapes and sizes, crawling, bounding and flying around. As LIFE's editors put it in their introduction: "This is a wild book. In its pages we have animals as big as trucks and plants as big as small towns. We have flowers that dance for our pleasure and flowers that shyly hide underground, flowers that can kill animals and flowers that can heal animals. We have a teeny tiny bird that is directly descended from T Rex and a truly enormous bird that can't fly but can run 45 miles an hour. We have a lizard king that could rip you apart and a lizard princeling that walks on water. This is a wild, wild book." It is indeed. It is a book that is focused on life at the far fringes-the biggest, toughest, gentlest, rarest and weirdest species. It ultimately creates an astonishing image of the world around us, a world more diverse and sometimes strange than even the most imaginative reader might have expected. Accompanying the remarkable photography, which is always LIFE's hallmark, are descriptions of each subject that will fairly boggle the mind. Did you know that a carnivorous plant's trapping mechanism often doubles as its stomach, or that an elephant seal can hold its breath for up to two hours when diving in the sea? There are as many amazing facts in these pages as there are sensational pictures. And as with earlier volumes in LIFE's Classic Collection series, Wonders of Life comes with a bonus feature: Five photographic prints from the famed LIFE archive that can be extracted, framed and hung on your wall. When the print is removed, the exact picture is still there on the page beneath, so your deluxe coffee-table book remains intact. It is, as the editors write, "an elegant trick worthy of the dancing flower, and one that our readers have come to expect-and greatly enjoy." Travel along then, around the globe and to the depths of the oceans, as LIFE celebrates the wonders of life-each of them wondrous almost beyond belief.

A Page from the Wonders of Life on Earth

Poetry. A PAGE FROM THE WONDERS OF LIFE ON EARTH is a book with a coherent vision of nature—constructed or framed, both in the present and in the recent past—through zoos, aviaries, formal gardens, menageries, and books like the Time Life one named in the title. Informed by the author's grand tour of these zoos and gardens, these poems provide a strong lens for considering the many paradoxes of inter-species relations; they open up the possibility of honest, unsentimental elegy. The book is also a model of what might be called investigative poetry, taking the poet's combination of perceptual acuity, craft, music and sensibility into these richly troubled places (prisons of, monuments to, museums for the lost natural world) where "arcades sell postcards of old photographs of the arcades," and where questions of what it means to be human, to be animal, to be other and to be art are tangibly in the air. "Bolster's work demonstrates a surety of vision supported by an insider's eye for the telling aberrant detail everywhere matched by her impeccable ear"—Judith Fitzgerald, The Globe and Mail.

"Unglaublich lesenswert!" The Times "Es bringt einen dazu, sich zu fragen, was es heißt, ein Mensch zu sein und was man selbst in vergleichbarer Situation tun würde." The Sun "Faszinierend und fesselnd." People "Poetisch, nachdenklich und aufwühlend ... Mott reflektiert wieder eindringlich, wie die wirkliche Welt wohl reagieren würde, wenn das Unmögliche geschieht." Kirkus Review "Es gibt einen Namen für dieses Gefühl, Macon: Kindheit. Und wenn sie vorbei ist, ist sie vorbei. Und die Vorstellung, dass die Welt ein magischer Ort ist, verschwindet mit ihr. In jenem Moment wirst du erwachsen und verlierst deine Fähigkeit, das Wunderbare in all den Dingen zu sehen. Von da an siehst du nur noch, wie sich alles seinem Ende nähert." Während einer Flugschau im idyllischen Stone Temple stürzt eine Propellermaschine ab. Der beste Freund der 13-jährigen Ava, Wash, wird schwer verletzt. Alle rechnen damit, dass der Junge stirbt. Doch dann legt Ava ihre Hände auf seine Brust, und die Wunden verschwinden. Das Wunder von Stone Temple geht um die Welt; tausende Pilger bedrängen Ava, ihnen zu helfen. Doch sie kann unmöglich alle retten, denn jede Heilung raubt ihr Lebenskraft. Aber steht es ihr zu, über Leben und Tod zu entscheiden? Als das Schicksal dann bei ihrer Familie zuschlägt, steht sie vor der schwersten Entscheidung ihres Lebens ...

“Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13 KJVER) Just as the High Priest was commanded to sprinkle the blood of the sacrificial animal on the ground seven times on the Day of Atonement, Jesus’s blood drenched the earth seven times so that the seven wonders of the cross could take place in our lives. In The Seven Wonders of the Cross, Wilkin van de Kamp leads us on an intense journey to the seven moments in which the blood of Jesus soaked the earth during the last eighteen hours of His life. The seven moments that Jesus bled did not occur by accident. Each was a prophetic action, predicted hundreds of years before, inspired by God and done through His will. The personal testimonies that are interwoven in this book bring the wonder of the cross to us more intimately, forming one miraculous gift from God the Father for all His children here on earth. Discover how Jesus has given His life perfectly for you so that the seven wonders of the cross can also take place in your life.
