Jean Donovan--professor, lay minister and crisis worker--offers a Christian understanding of one of life's greatest mysteries--death. In material divided into several cogent and succinct chapters, she discourses on the subject and its concomitant issues-evil, pain, suffering, acceptance, and happiness. The result is The Mystery of Death, a probing, theological account of questions that deeply perplex humankind: "Where is God in the face of evil?" And "why does God permit human beings to suffer and die?" Complete with references from the Bible, Dante, and C.S. Lewis, among others, this is a compassionate and scholarly contribution to thanatology.Written in precise and careful language, this book is recommended for:· Individual readers searching for the meaning of death.· Theological seminaries, medical and nursing schools.· Social workers who work with the sick and the bereaved.· Clergy of all faiths.· Students of psychology.
The most important task for human beings is to learn to overcome death by uniting with the Christ, who overcame death. The Mystery of Golgotha teaches us that Ahriman is both part of cosmic evolution and that he is overcome.

No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark, and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field, one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill, one will be taken and the other left. Therefore, keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him (Matthew 24:36-44). This is truly an exposition of spiritual truths hidden and avoided for the ages, exposing us to the surprise that awaits everyone at the boundary between physical life and eternity. This will bring life and spiritual revolution to everyone who can read, irrespective of age. Whoever wishes to evade hell and not be deceived by its perverted concepts should read this book.

Cory Doctorow's Attack Surface is a standalone novel set in the world of New York Times bestsellers Little Brother and Homeland. Most days, Masha Maximow was sure she'd chosen the winning side. In her day job as a counterterrorism wizard for an transnational cybersecurity firm, she made the hacks that allowed repressive regimes to spy on dissidents, and manipulate their every move. The perks were fantastic, and the pay was obscene. Just for fun, and to piss off her masters, Masha sometimes used her mad skills to help those same troublemakers evade detection, if their cause was just. It was a dangerous game and a hell of a rush. But seriously self-destructive. And unsustainable. When her targets were strangers in faraway police states, it was easy to compartmentalize, to ignore the collateral damage of murder, rape, and torture. But when it hits close to home, and the hacks and exploits she’s devised are directed at her friends and family--including boy wonder Marcus Yallow, her old crush and archrival, and his entourage of naïve idealists--Masha realizes she has to choose. And whatever choice she makes, someone is going to get hurt. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Keri Locke, Missing Persons Detective in the Homicide division of the LAPD, remains haunted by the abduction of her own daughter, years before, never found. Still obsessed with finding her, Keri buries her grief the only way she knows how: by throwing herself into the cases of missing persons in Los Angeles.

What she finds shocks her. The missing daughter—of a prominent senator—was hiding secrets no one knew. When all evidence points to a runaway, Keri is ordered off the case.

She knows she has but 48 hours if she has any chance of bringing this girl back alive.

This bundle offers books one and two in one convenient file, with over 100,000 words of reading. In MURDER (AND BAKLAVA), when London Rose, 33, is proposed to by her long-time boyfriend, she realizes she is facing a stable, predictable, pre-determined (and passionless) life. She freaks out and runs the other way—accepting instead a job across the Atlantic, as a tour-guide on a high-end European cruise line that travels through a country a day. London is searching for a more romantic, unscripted and exciting life that she feels sure exists out there somewhere. London is elated: the European river towns are small, historic and charming. She gets to see a new port every night, gets to sample an endless array of new cuisine and meet a stream of interesting people. It is a traveler’s dream, and it is anything but predictable. But when a wealthy, high-maintenance passenger suddenly turns up dead outside of Budapest, the cruise has become a bit too unpredictable. Even worse: as the last person to see her alive, suspicion falls on London, leaving her no choice but to solve the crime (with her new sidekick, an orphaned dog), and save her cruise line and herself. In DEATH (AND APPLE STRUDEL), the cruise takes them into Vienna and Salzburg, home of Mozart and the birthplace of music, and all seems picture-perfect. Until, that its, their tour guide turns up dead after giving the passengers a tour of Mozart’s theatre. Suspicion falls on them. Who could have killed her? And why?
