  • Eight years ago, I believed I’d finally found a place to call home. My mother’s marriage to Vincent Sharpe meant security and three stepbrothers who were already my best friends. But Mom’s mysterious death one week before the wedding turned my world upside down. The day of her funeral, I was whisked away to live with my aunt in Kansas, and I never heard from the Sharpes again... Until a devastating tornado leaves me destitute. Now, Vincent is offering me the opportunity of a lifetime—he’ll pay for my tuition and expenses at an exclusive university. All I have to do is move back in with him and his sons. Knowing this is my one chance to discover what really happened to my mother, I grudgingly accept. But if I thought living in the same house with a potential murderer was going to be my biggest obstacle, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Leo, Hayle, and Tristin Sharpe are no longer the boys I remember. They're all grown up, with the adult attitudes, tensions, and sex appeal to prove it. They aren’t my problem anymore. Yet, somehow, they keep drawing me into their web of drama. I might be the only person who can fix what’s broken between them. But I don't trust that they won't shatter me in the process. *The Lonely Souls trilogy is a contemporary reverse harem series inspired by the main characters in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz...except, this version of Dorothy and her friends is a little twisted.

    Soul, Body, and Survival
  • Author : Kevin Corcoran
  • Publisher : Cornell University Press
  • Pages : 272
  • ISBN : 9781501723520
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Philosophy
  • How are soul and body related to one another? Are human beings immaterial souls, or complex physical organisms? Will we survive the death of our bodies? Does only the dualist view allow the possibility of life after death? This collection brings together cutting-edge research on the metaphysics of human nature and the possibility of post-mortem survival. Kevin Corcoran's collection, Soul, Body, and Survival, includes chapters from those who embrace traditional soul-body dualism, those who assert person-body identity, and those who propose entirely new views that fall outside the categories of monism and dualism. The first book to connect the metaphysics of persons with the belief in life after death, thus intersecting with theological as well as philosophical inquiry, it blurs the divide between metaphysics and the philosophy of mind.

    Gods of this World
  • Author : Shandon L. Guthrie
  • Publisher : Wipf and Stock Publishers
  • Pages : 326
  • ISBN : 9781532633058
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Religion
  • Philosophers of religion have focused almost exclusively on the existence and nature of God and the nature and destiny of human beings. But these philosophers have been remiss in engaging discussions about the possibility of there being adverse gods of this world (demonic beings) despite being a doctrine that comprises a significant part of the Christian confession. This drought in the literature has left a number of questions unaddressed, including: Hasn't science buried the demonic? Are there any successful philosophical arguments for the existence of Satan? What kind of being is Satan? Is he the fallen angel of lore? Is it reasonable for Christians to say that demons are purely immaterial spirits? Can demons causally interact with the physical world and its inhabitants? Can demons perform diabolical miracles? Shandon Guthrie broaches new territory beginning with a rigorous defense for the existence of Satan and his cohorts. He then advances and defends a model for how to understand their nature in terms of their ontology and causal powers. No other book has attempted a full-fledged natural diabology on behalf of Christian orthodoxy. This is a must-read for anyone interested in the dark side of Christian theology and metaphysics.

    C. S. Lewis's Dangerous Idea
  • Author : Victor Reppert
  • Publisher : InterVarsity Press
  • Pages : 134
  • ISBN : 0830874658
  • Reader Reviews : 4
  • Genre : Religion
  • Who ought to hold claim to the more dangerous idea--Charles Darwin or C. S. Lewis? Daniel Dennett argued for Darwin in Darwin's Dangerous Idea (Touchstone Books, 1996). In this book Victor Reppert champions C. S. Lewis. Darwinists attempt to use science to show that our world and its inhabitants can be fully explained as the product of a mindless, purposeless system of physics and chemistry. But Lewis claimed in his argument from reason that if such materialism or naturalism were true then scientific reasoning itself could not be trusted. Victor Reppert believes that Lewis's arguments have been too often dismissed. In C. S. Lewis's Dangerous Idea Reppert offers careful, able development of Lewis's thought and demonstrates that the basic thrust of Lewis's argument from reason can bear up under the weight of the most serious philosophical attacks. Charging dismissive critics, Christian and not, with ad hominem arguments, Reppert also revisits the debate and subsequent interaction between Lewis and the philosopher Elizabeth Anscombe. And addressing those who might be afflicted with philosophical snobbery, Reppert demonstrates that Lewis's powerful philosophical instincts perhaps ought to place him among those other thinkers who, by contemporary standards, were also amateurs: Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, Descartes, Spinoza, Locke and Hume. But even more than this, Reppert's work exemplifies the truth that the greatness of Lewis's mind is best measured, not by his ability to do our thinking for us, but by his capacity to provide sound direction for taking our own thought further up and further in.

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Body, Mind & Spirit
  • Awaken the real you, and embrace total happiness! As one travels the landscape of life, the mind becomes cluttered, the body becomes misaligned from the soul, and happiness becomes harder to maintain. It is easy to become discouraged, to follow a dark path with no rewards. In today's world, many people are on this path, trudging slowly through life with a burden of fear, negativity, and regret. But this is not how it has to be; it is never too late for change. In "A Total Reboot", John Traficante tells how to cast off old systems of beliefs, old ways of living, and to reach a higher state of being by embracing the present and evolving spiritually as life moves forward. He demonstrates how to install new "spiritual software" and to "reboot" the mind with a new sense of clarity and truth. Through newly awakened eyes, one will be able to truly see the wondrous essence of life, the greatest of all lights. No longer will days pass in fear and wasted time; they will become filled with meaning and a deeper connection with the self and the universe without. Each day brings new miracles; reboot, and start embracing them today.

    Miss Understood
  • Author : Lynette Greenfield

  • ISBN : 9781329379732
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Poetry
  • In her new book, “Miss Understood” Lynette Greenfield stakes out as firmly as ever, the position of poetry in a world where language's registers have been largely mellowed by forces of oppression. Greenfield’s poems unfold in settings: her streets, cafes, and cities, yet these poems oppose grand pronouncements and renounce engagement. We see her continual evolution toward memory, but the role of poetry is still both vital and deeply pronounced. These new poems, pitched at a register slightly lower than that of praise, offer a sort of quiet surprise born out of wise and hard-earned skepticism. A poet has "only language, only words, images, only the world," she writes “Or elsewhere, "There is no truth”.

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Juvenile Nonfiction
  • So connected, we disconnected and find ourselves desperately alone drowning in an ocean of infinite possibilities. “A masterpiece that beautifully demystifies the evolutionary role of loneliness, echoes a powerful existential message for mankind, and amplifies people’s faith in the power of love.” Jack Canfield -Co-creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul™ Meticulously researched and written, #Loneliness: The Virus of the Modern Age explores the fierce scientific, psychological and spiritual impact of loneliness – a problem that has become an ironic epidemic in a world that is more interconnected than ever before. In a world where communication is instant, where billions of people can interact at just a moment’s notice, it will come as a shock to many to learn that loneliness is an epidemic more rampant and destructive than at any point in history. Almost everyone faces adversity from the isolation that causes us some degree of depression, anxiety or diminished self-esteem. We have become accustomed to a new way of being alone together in a technological cocoon that covers up our real pain. Our true essence is hidden behind facades that we show to the world from the fear of being judged, criticized, and rejected. This is what brings us out of a natural state of healthy balance, is the root cause of disease, and what creates the segregation experienced worldwide. #Loneliness is a global call for people to redefine themselves in the face of life's most significant challenges. Comforting, moving, and spiritually practical, this book is a guide to help you break through your apparent loneliness, and shift you toward crowd-nurtured world peace and the next stage in our evolution. Loneliness not only disintegrates your mental and physical health but also infects your genome and leads to multiple changes while painting a dark and negative picture of the world around you. The most surprising thing to learn is that today’s obsession with technology does nothing more than simply awaken the segregation, discord, and loneliness already inside us all, which further spirals our moods and outlook. Read this book to make you aware of that problem, create a road map that safely guides you out of your dis-empowered states, and empower yourself to redefine the meaning of your life so you can overcome adversity with ease and build the happiness and prosperity you so deeply crave. Use it to reveal how inner discord creates your deceptive loneliness, which is spontaneously appearing around the world in the form of war, racism, nationalism, xenophobia, homophobia, illness, high divorce rates, financial crisis, and so much more. A life manual that shows you how to extract wisdom from every life adversity, so you become a more balanced, mindful, and heart-centred individual, leader, parent, teacher, and human being. If you let it, each page will guide you and encourage you to make the changes that your soul is craving. The principles and ideas shared will teach you how to listen to your heart in ways you didn’t know possible, amplify your awareness and ultimately break free of the cocoon that is stopping you from seeing and embracing the beauty of this world. But it goes beyond you as individuals; it will teach you how to unite and ignite humanity’s collective voice so we can progress to the next stage of our evolution. If this is you calling, then get this book to breakthrough loneliness and live a more connected and love-infused life.

    The Dogs of Vilnius
  • Author : Stephen Abraham
  • Publisher : Independently Published
  • Pages : 398
  • ISBN : 1793154309
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Books
  • The dogs of Vilnius is the story about those souls who know that darkness is the absence of light - tests both the brutal and gentle boundaries between people. At its core, it is a mystic exploration into human nature.Background facts:1. 95% of all Lithuania's Jews were murdered in WWII, the highest proportion of any European country. Fellow Lithuanians help murder them.2. Ypatingas Burys - A Lithuanian Death Squad compromised of local Lithuanians subordinate to the Nazi German Einsatzkommando 9. The Ypatingas Burys were tasked to round up Jews in Lithuania and murder them.Ypatingas Burys were created to kill people and it killed people during its entire existence. It carried out most of the murders in 1941. YB killed people in Paneriai, Nemenčine, Naujoji Vilnia, Varena, Jasiūnai, Eisiskes, Trakai, Semeliskes, and Svenčionys.3. 25% of all the Jews killed in the WWII Holocaust were murdered within a 100-day period in 1942.The story: Two narratives connect through the teachings of the Gra, a great sage. His thoughts are captured by his host in a secret book during a snow storm in the late 1700s outside Vilnius. In it, he expels his ideas about the concept of lonely souls and the condition of being in-love. Two forbidden loves destined to collide, drawn together by fate, torn apart by war are forced to confront their fears. In WW2, we follow Davie, a downed American pilot, and Leah the leader of a band of partisans on the run in the forests of Panerai outside Vilnius. They are fleeing Algimantas Lutikis, leader of the SS sanctioned Lithuanian death-squad, the Ypatingas Burys. Then now, in Cape Town - home to many exiled Lithuanian Jews, we trace Ravi, a Rabbi who uncovers the hidden book and Chanti, a Catholic artist. Fighting forbidden desires they are forced to face their deepest fears in modern Vilnius. Can the secrets of the Gra be revealed to untangle the web of betrayal driven by hate and revenge.A story that will touch the hearts of those who are interested in the mysteries of love and war ... in the same way that they are captured by the inexplicable nature of hate in the absence of love.Praise for The dogs of Vilnius: The narrative itself is written clearly in a poetic style remnant of some of the best authors of the last century, namely Michael Ondaatje; additionally, a feminine quality to Abraham's diction and syntax, similar to Barbara Kingsolver's writing, only adds to the beauty of the narrative and the love story at the core of the novel. This is a love story that should not be over-sentimentalised, nor should its sentiment be trivialised. I feel that Abraham handles this balance adeptly, and this is one of the major strengths of the narrative. Finally, there are a few action scenes and moments of conspiracy and mystery that create heightened tension within both narrative and reader, and the ability of Abraham to weave a story of both fact and fiction into a highly plausible plot can be compared to the similar ability of the late Stieg Larsson.- Claire Strombeck

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Social Science
  • Mingming Wang, one of the most prolific anthropologists in China, has produced a work both of long-term historical anthropology and of broad social theory. In it, he traces almost a millennium of history of the southern Chinese city of Quangzhou, a major international trading entrepot in the 13th century that declined to a peripheral regional center by the end of the 19th century. But the historical trajectory understates the complex set of interrelationships between local structures and imperial agendas that played out over the course of centuries and dynasties. Using urban structure, documentary analysis, and archaeological artifacts, Wang shows how the study of Quangzhou represents a Chinese template for civilizational studies, one distinctly different from Eurocentric models propounded by such theorists as Sahlins, Wolf, and Elias.

  • Genre : Religion
  • A naval captain wouldn't dream of making someone who had never sailed turbulent waters as his first mate. Instead, his desire is to recruit a seasoned veteran who not only has traversed stormy seas but has also lived to tell the tale. Written from within the confines of a Texas prison, Biblical Bandages for a Broken Heart offers hope, peace, encouragement, and comfort to those who suffer from despair, depression, and the everyday trials of life.

    Second Person Singular

  • Genre : Literary Criticism
  • Emily Harrington offers a new history of women’s poetry at the turn of the century that breaks from conventional ideas of nineteenth-century lyric, which focus on individual subjectivity. She argues that women poets conceived of lyric as an intersubjective genre, one that seeks to establish relations between subjects rather than to constitute a subject in isolation. Moving away from canonical texts that contribute to the commonly held notion that lyric poetry is an utterance made in solitude, Harrington explores the work of Christina Rossetti, Augusta Webster, A. Mary F. Robinson, Alice Meynell, and Dollie Radford to show how nineteenth-century poetic conventions shaped and were shaped by concepts of intimacy. Writing about relationships that are familial, divine, sexual, literary, and musical, these poets reconsidered the dynamics of absence and presence, and subject and object, that are at the heart of the lyric enterprise. Harrington locates these poets' theories of intimacy not only in their formal poetic practice but also in diverse prose works such as prefaces, literary and devotional essays, and unpublished letters and diaries. By analyzing various patterns of versification and modes of address, she articulates new ways of thinking about the bonds of verse and enlarges our understanding of verse culture in the late nineteenth century.

  • Three ordinary weirdos, one recurring dream. The acclaimed minds behind The Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head return with a whimsical and ambitious portrait of human connection in the age of digital fragmentation. You meet the strangest people on the internet. Gideon is a lonely I.T. developer, obsessed by a comic book from childhood called Revenge of the Ghoulors, and secretly in love with his co-worker Lisa. Heidi works at home in her pyjamas, makes a lot of soup, and wishes she had time for friends. Peter is a 56-year-old divorcee who delivers classic cars, has a built-in toaster, and thinks a lot about the past. These three people seem unconnected, yet they share something—they each have the same recurring dream. And when a new web service is introduced that helps people share their dreams, what will happen when the three of them find out about each other? Just what is it that links these three lonely souls? Nimbly weaving together multiple storylines (including extracts from Gideon’s comic book, Revenge of the Ghoulors), Dan Berry and David Gaffney present Rivers: a quirky examination of how events from the past can bind people together forever, and a surprising reunion between people who’ve never met.

    Many Faces of Mulian

  • Publisher : University of Washington Press
  • Pages : 272
  • ISBN : 9780295742533
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : History
  • The story of Mulian rescuing his mother�s soul from hell has evolved as a narrative over several centuries in China, especially in the baojuan (precious scrolls) genre. This genre, a prosimetric narrative in vernacular language, first appeared around the fourteenth century and endures as a living tradition. In exploring the evolution of the Mulian story, Rostislav Berezkin illuminates changes in the literary and religious characteristics of the genre. He also examines material from other forms of Chinese literature and from modern performances of baojuan, tracing their transformation from tools of Buddhist proselytizing to sectarian propaganda to folk ritualized storytelling. Ultimately, he reveals the special features of baojuan as a type of performance literature that had its foundations in multiple literary traditions.
