English-Russian Russian-English: Dictionary-Guide for Shopping
($15.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7607-6, paperback.
This thorough guide translates English and Russian words commonly found in a supermarket to help aid immigrants learning to shop in a new land.
When migrating from one country to another, a person leaves not only his or her motherland, but changes his or her lifestyle and mentality, too. It is especially hard to get used to grocery shopping. American immigrants have to learn to adapt to local conditions, including ethnic grocery stores and departments in American supermarkets. But it is sometimes hard to find a favorite product, since the converted name is unknown.
This thorough guide translates common English words into Russian, broken into categories including different kinds of foods one can find at a supermarket. It will help you find those especially hard-to-find food products.

Judas Iscariot: The Devil and the Betrayal of Jesus Christ
($9.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7723-3, paperback
This thought-provoking book proposes that Judas Iscariot was not the villain of Jesus' crucifixion.
Throughout Christian history, Judas Iscariot has been treated as a villain and a pariah as the one who betrayed Jesus Christ. But was he really responsible for His death? In Judas Iscariot, Kojo Tawiah Boison carefully examines the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John to determine what influenced Judas to do what he did.
Boison discusses the others who shared responsibility for the crucifixion--the religious leaders, the people ("the multitude"), and Pontius Pilate--and asserts that only Judas regretted his action, acknowledged Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and inflicted the ultimate punishment on himself. Was Judas just acting in fulfillment of God's plan? Did he believe he was providing a chance for Jesus to prove himself as the Messiah to a skeptical people? Is it possible Judas believed Jesus would not actually let Himself be harmed?
This fascinating book gives readers the opportunity to better understand this complicated man.
