Orson Scott Card offers a Christmas gift to his millions of fans with this short novel set during Ender's first years at the Battle School where it is forbidden to celebrate religious holidays.
The Santa Claus Gang has struck again. Xmas Eve: the Prussian Death Squad Robot commandos (with Live Action Grappling Hooks!) disappear en masse. A panicked CEO places an early morning call for help. Ignoring Call Waiting, Marlowe and Nina answer, launching them yet again into the seedy, dumpster-filled underbelly of the City's criminal underworld. You'd think they'd have learned by now to pay attention to Call Waiting. 'Tis the season to stop the nefarious holiday-themed criminal organization from giving away the Most Wanted Toy of the Year. Otherwise, the poor conglomerate that manufactures the Prussian Death Squad Robot Commandos (with Live Action Grappling Hooks!) will be crushed. And if that isn't incentive enough, failure means Marlowe and Nina will be executed. The Santa Claus Gang is a short story set after the action of Marlowe and the Spacewoman, but before the nail-biting excitement of Balloons of the Apocalypse. And now, for a limited time, it's available in English!
God gives the Church gifts to benefit everyone. The purpose of the gifts is not make us spiritual, but to help us to serve and minister to one another in love. The operation of the Spirit of God and His gifts/ministries among believers testifies to the presence of God in the Church. In this book, we will take a biblical approach to examining and explaining the gifts and ministries of the Spirit, their functions, and how to recognize them in operation.
