This Ms. is written in the romantic adventure genre, with the various love affairs of the characters taking place against the 1960S backdrop of South West Africa and Angola, when it declared its independence from Portugal, becoming the Peoples Republic of Angola in November 1975. The characters include: * Nord, the only son of the farming Nordman family. His actual mother is a Nama girl, of Dutch and Khoi-Khoi descent. He is brought up by the farmers Dutch wife, Grietje, as her own son. * Emilie, the daughter of the wealthy neighbouring farmer, Antonin, and his wife, Gina. Emilie is born when Nord is 12 years of age (and like a member of their family). Emilies mother dies after a snake- bite on the farm when Emilie is 6 years old. * Shaba is a young African boy who loses his family in a village massacre in Zaire. He flees with his grandfather, the only surviving family of the ruling chief, and they disappear into the highlands of neighbouring Angola. A lonely child, his grandfather looks after him, but only with a sense of duty. He finds consolation with a herd of the royal black sable, following them in the forests until he is 10 years of age, when he accompanies his grandfather, recruited by Antonin to work for him on the farm in South West Africa. When Emilie learns to walk, the 15 year-old Shaba becomes her guardian. * Ki is the Bushman who is sent to the Nordman farm when he loses his right hand in a trap. He adopts the young boy as his spiritual son, and teaches him to live in the bush. Nord adopts his values and his expertise, which stands him in good stead when he becomes a reconnaissance scout for the South West African police force on the border of South West and Angola in the 1960s and 70s. The Bushman is always in the background, and an integral part of the novel.

This anthology pays tribute to Allan Berube (1946-2007), a self-taught historian and MacArthur Fellow who was a pioneer in the study of lesbian and gay history in the United States. Best known for his Lambda Literary Award-winning book Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women in World War II (1990), Berube also wrote extensively on the history of sexual politics in San Francisco and on the relationship between sexuality, class, and race. John D'Emilio and Estelle Freedman, who were close colleagues and friends of Berube, have selected sixteen of his most important essays, including hard-to-access articles and unpublished writing. The book provides a retrospective on Berube's life and work while it documents the emergence of a grassroots lesbian and gay community history movement in the 1970s and 1980s. Taken together, the essays attest to the power of history to mobilize individuals and communities to create social change.

Alcoholism has been alive and well in both my families for as long as I can remember. Only, I didn’t know that caused my family members to behave as they did. Sometimes they laughed and had a good time, and sometimes there was great sadness. There is no denial in admitting or accepting that. That is how the cookie crumbles. I love them very much, and they are very important in my life. They indeed are my backbone, and I will never forget that. It is very hard at times, and trust me when I say it certainly is, but that is just life. I have to try that much harder to overcome my own alcoholism. Oh, well.

God has afforded us the pleasure, the privilege, the victory and the position thru His Son Jesus to worship Him. Worship is what our souls seek. Worship is when we bow and ascend in His presence. Worship is what the soul longs for. I pray this book will ignite that spot that was made and created for the Creator, by the Creator and only He can satisfy. Worship is that rich, wealthy, prosperous place of peace, joy, and wholeness that ONLY GOD can fill. When reading, confessing, praying, agreeing with these prayers you will experience satisfaction in your soul. When we acknowledge God’s Love we can’t help but to worship. God is in love with us, and desires our fellowship. He satisfies! He is better than sex, drugs, alcohol, fame, fortune, wealth, accolades, or accomplishments. He’s better than anything this world can offer. He satisfies the thirsty and the hungry. He heals the hurting, He fixes the broken and He redeems the lost. Great God, Yes He is!!!!. He loves us and we should love Him back! When we make it about Him, He makes it about us!!! I’m amazed by Him, how much He loves us!!!!!

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
In Cry of Wonder, Gerard W. Hughes, author of God of Surprises, encourages readers to explore their own human experience, the unique doorway opening each of us out into the mystery of our present existence. In our time, such attention to mystery is considered counter-cultural and subversive of law and order. The truth of this observation becomes very clear to us if we give attention to our own felt reactions to the events of our lives. The purpose of this book is to focus our attention on this inner conflict, because it can reveal to us a vision of the transformation into which we are all now being invited in all that we are experiencing in every moment of our existence.

The time of John Gill was far different. Search for knowledge was just reaching its full height after the world had crawled out of the Dark and Middle ages. Between 1735 and 1738 The Cause of God and Truth appeared from Gill's pen and was a masterpiece in presenting the truth of God's sovereignty and man's depravity. Augustus Toplady was so moved by this work that he later called Gill the greatest defender of the doctrines of grace since Augustine. The current book is a series of sermons by Dr Gill on the Everlasting Covenant that belongs to His people.

From crimes of heart and crimes of violence, A CITY EQUAL TO MY DESIRE effortlessly guides you through the narrows of human existence in all its forms. In this selection of new stories, James Sallis, author of the acclaimed Lew Griffin series of detective novels, both entertains and engages the mind with stories that will linger in memory long after they've been experienced. "Sallis wants to take your experience of the world, mutate it to the edge of recognition, and then deliver it back before your eyes like a coin pulled from behind your earlobe. And in this way, he makes you see and feel, all over again, the meaning, the beauty-and, pointedly sometimes, the horror-of being human." Jack O'Connell from his introduction

Author: Jiulio Consiglio
Do you often feel disconnected from your spirituality and long to find the truth in life? Author Jiulio Consiglio contends that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Challenge Your Thoughts: Healing Mind, Spirit, and Body with Truth quickly puts us on a path to realizing that we are truth itself. This awe-inspiring guide steers us toward the understanding that we are greater than what the "thinker" in our minds would have us believe. When we let go of our egos, we become a part of Creation. Consiglio is a modern-day sage who gently guides us to the truth about ourselves. He teaches that forgiveness is the path to achieving peace in our lives; that it begins with us. His message is simple yet extraordinary: there is a higher level of awareness where all suffering ends. As Consiglio describes it, we are the creators of our own destinies, which are manifested through our thoughts and beliefs. Powerful and transforming, Challenge Your Thoughts contains what we have all been searching for-truth. It provides an inspirational message of hope and peace that will guide you to discover your true essence.

Publisher: OUP Oxford
This book challenges, with several powerful arguments, some of our deepest beliefs about rationality, morality, and personal identity. The author claims that we have a false view of our own nature; that it is often rational to act against our own best interests; that most of us have moral views that are directly self-defeating; and that, when we consider future generations the conclusions will often be disturbing. He concludes that moral non-religious moral philosophy is a young subject, with a promising but unpredictable future.

Translated from the critical edition by John Clarke, OCD, 3rd ed. (1997). Includes Bibliography, general Index, and 11 photos. Two and a half years before her death in 1897 at the age of 24, as Thérèse Martin began writing down her childhood memories at the request of her blood sisters in the Lisieux Carmel, few could have guessed the eventual outcome. Yet this "story of my soul," first published in 1898 in a highly edited version, quickly became a modern spiritual classic, read by millions and translated into dozens of languages around the world. Decades later, in response to growing requests from scholars and devotees of the Saint, a facsimile edition of the manuscripts appeared, along with more popular French editions of what the Saint had actually written. Here, expressed with all of Thérèse's original spontaneity and fervor, we rediscover the great themes of her spirituality: confidence and love, the "little way," abandonment to God's merciful love, and her "mission" in the church and world today. Father John Clarke's acclaimed translation, first published in 1975 and now accepted as the standard throughout the English-speaking world, is a faithful and unaffected rendering of Thérèse's own words, from the original manuscripts. This new edition, prepared for the centenary of the Saint's death, includes a select bibliography of recent works in English on Thérèse, along with a new referencing system now widely used in studies of her doctrine.

There is an interesting and far-reaching disagreement between Smith and Frederick Stoutland. In his 'The Real Reasons' Stoutland argues that one of the mistakes that turned the belief-desire model of action into the 'received view' is the underlying commitment to the idea that there is an underlying unity to all action explanations. According to Stoutland the unity is no deeper than the superficial fact that actions are responses of agents to the world, and the challenge for the philosophy of action is to make sense of that fact without falling victim to the un fruitful assumption that reasons should be understood as the normative content of determinate representational inner states of agents. Stoutland suggests an alternative according to which reasonable agents possess the know how to respond appropriately to the normative import of the external situations they find themselves in. These situations are, Stout land claims, the real reasons. Stoutland raises an important issue. If beliefs and desires should be understood as reasons, as introducing normative constraints that de serve respect, it seems we are bound to distinguish between on the one hand the content of our beliefs and desires and on the other hand their objects. Moreover, it seems we have good reasons to believe that the content of our beliefs and desires derives its normative import qua normative import from the objects of our beliefs and desires.
