The benefits of such a study are the following: (1) Understanding of the correspondence and unity between the Old and New Testaments; (2) Insight into the purpose of the law given in the Old Testament and in the ceremonial rituals; (3) A perspective of God's actions throughout history and today; (4) A better understanding of God and human nature; (5) A view of the revealed end from the beginning and insight into the events in-between. (6) Clarification of the Judeo-Christian connection. (7) A comprehension of faith as meaning-making from a scriptural perspective.

Hard to get never felt so good… Prince Luca of Monaforte is a player. Or so the tabloids claim. Rarely is he seen without a gorgeous, tall, blonde celebrity on his arm, and never has he had to so much as lift a finger to woo any female within a fifty-mile radius of him. Until he meets Larkin Mallory, a journalist he encounters who is covering fashion week. Petite, blonde-haired Larkin Mallory would rather stick a toothpick in her eyeball than have to sit through an interview with the arrogant young prince from Monaforte, who clearly thinks he’s all that. But when her boss gives her the choice: interview him or be fired, she makes sure Luca is in for the most uncomfortable interview he’s ever had to suffer through. Too bad for Larkin that being as formidable as a medieval fortress only makes Luca want to win her to his side even more.
