  • Genre : Paranormal fiction
  • As one evil falls, another rises in its place. The powerful witch, Desdemona, has finally been killed by an alliance of wolf, elf, and fae. But Reyaz, brother to Cypher the warlock king, has vowed retribution for a life that was taken from him. Now Cypher must decide not only how to protect his newfound mate and his people, but also how to destroy the only family he has left. Meanwhile, Jen's pregnancy progresses and the fateful due date draws ever nearer. The thought of losing Decebel's child constantly threatens to overwhelm her. With each passing day, Decebel grows more distant, causing Jen to wonder what toll the impending loss of their child is taking on him. Unbeknownst to Jen, in an act of desperation to protect his unborn child and mate, Decebel strikes a deadly bargain with the Great Luna-his life in place of his child's. There is only one way for that to happen; the bond between he and Jen must be broken. As Jen as Decebel struggle through their darkness, another kind of darkness is infiltrating Fane's heart. Doubts and questions linger as he tries to cope with the emotions brought on in the aftermath of Desdemona's curse. He knows what happened wasn't real, but still he can't rid himself of the terrible images seared into his memory. Jacque is his light, the one who keeps the darkness at bay, yet he won't let her inside to do just that. Sally continues to learn what it means to be a gypsy healer and Costin struggles to protect her as she runs full speed ahead to help her wolves, heedless of her own safety. She sees her best friends struggling, each enduring their own trials. She's desperate to help them, but can she keep them safe? With all of these things hanging heavy over the heads of the Serbia and Romania packs, their attention is divided. The wolves do not even realize a threat has slowly infiltrated their midst. Will they recognize the threat in time to save the lives that precariously hang in the balance? Against this backdrop of darkness, choices will be made, fears will confronted, and the ultimate sacrifice will be made. Will the wolves stand together to defeat the threats arrayed against them, both from within and without? Will love conquer all? Or will the beleaguered wolves finally succumb to their demons?

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : History
  • A celebration of the extraordinary courage, dedication, and sacrifice of this generation of American veterans on the battlefield and their equally valuable contributions on the home front. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz and National Book Award nominee Rajiv Chandrasekaran honor acts of uncommon valor in Iraq and Afghanistan, including an army sergeant who runs into a hail of gunfire to protect his comrades; two marines who chose to stand and defend their outpost from an oncoming truck bomb; and a sixty-year-old doctor who joined the navy after his son was killed at war, saving dozens of lives during his service. We also see how veterans turn their leadership skills into community-building initiatives once they return home: former soldiers who aid residents in rebuilding after natural disasters; an infantry officer who trades in a Pentagon job to teach in an inner-city neighborhood; the spouse of a severely injured soldier assisting families in similar positions. These powerful, unforgettable stories demonstrate just how indebted we are to those who protect us and what they have to offer our nation when their military service is over.

    The Path to Holiness
  • Author : John Paul Thomas
  • Publisher : Createspace Independent Publishing Platform

  • ISBN : 1541004183
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Books
  • The goal of this book is to offer you an invitation to look more deeply at the path to holiness and to discover the way in which you can travel it in your own life. This invitation is not simply given to help you grasp the theology of holiness; rather, it is an invitation to live it. You are called to become holy. But what is "holiness" and how do you obtain it? The path to holiness centers on the virtues of humility and trust. By embracing those virtues you will begin to see God transform your life in such a way that you begin to live the very sacrificial love of Christ. Furthermore, living a life of sacrificial love requires you to become a beacon of mercy in this world. Unfortunately, we live in a world that is in many ways void of mercy. It is a world in which harshness and judgment are the norm. However, one of the primary reasons so many people lack mercy in our day and age is because they lack humility and trust. We also live in a world filled with suffering. But sadly, suffering is rarely understood as an opportunity to achieve the highest level of holiness. Suffering is rarely transformed into sacrificial living. Instead, it is often experienced only as a burden to be avoided.

  • Genre : Religion
  • Revised & Updated Edition! God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. Have you ever wondered if we're missing it? It's crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe—the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor—loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you've verbalized it yet or not, we all know something's wrong. Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn't working harder at a list of do's and don'ts—it's falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you're wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

  • Genre : Fiction
  • A Toast to Love and Sacrifice is the story of Simone Singer, a young, brash, female politician living three decades from now, whose quest to balance feminism and love, conviction and conformity, and life and death, are tainted by her overreaching ambition. Simone's world is an overpopulated one, where population control has necessitated a widely accepted medical procedure known as "Maladaptive Fetal Termination." Unfortunately for Simone, whose career as a politician lives and breathes according to popular opinion, the one man she loves, Jack, leads a rebel group of staunch opponents of the procedure who would go to any lengths to ensure the extinction of the "MFT." Simone's journey toward securing a life with Jack takes her on a series of challenging and often dangerous life-altering adventures. Along the way, she learns lessons about forgiveness, strength, and family that force her to re-examine her own beliefs and conquer her own preconceptions about who she is suppose to be. A Toast to Love and Sacrifice is a story for anyone who enjoys prophecy, realism, romance, or self-analysis and is especially rich reading for those seeking a unique blend of these exciting genres.

  • Pages : 288
  • ISBN : 9780520976702
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Social Science
  • How do families remain close when turbulent forces threaten to tear them apart? In this groundbreaking book based on more than a decade of research set in Vietnam, Merav Shohet explores what happens across generations to families that survive imperialism, war, and massive political and economic upheaval. Placing personal sacrifice at the center of her story, Shohet recounts vivid experiences of conflict, love, and loss. In doing so, her work challenges the idea that sacrifice is merely a blood-filled religious ritual or patriotic act. Today, domestic sacrifices—made largely by women—precariously knot family members together by silencing suffering and naturalizing cross-cutting gender, age, class, and political hierarchies. In rethinking ordinary ethics, this intimate ethnography reveals how quotidian acts of sacrifice help family members forge a sense of continuity in the face of trauma and decades of dramatic change.

    Aristotle and the Philosophy of Friendship
  • Author : Lorraine Smith Pangle
  • Publisher : Cambridge University Press
  • Pages : 255
  • ISBN : 9781139441865
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Philosophy
  • This book offers a comprehensive account of the major philosophical works on friendship and its relationship to self-love. The book gives central place to Aristotle's searching examination of friendship in the Nicomachean Ethics. Lorraine Pangle argues that the difficulties surrounding this discussion are soon dispelled once one understands the purpose of the Ethics as both a source of practical guidance for life and a profound, theoretical investigation into human nature. The book also provides fresh interpretations of works on friendship by Plato, Cicero, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne and Bacon. The author shows how each of these thinkers sheds light on central questions of moral philosophy: is human sociability rooted in neediness or strength? is the best life chiefly solitary, or dedicated to a community with others? Clearly structured and engagingly written, this book will appeal to a broad swathe of readers across philosophy, classics and political science.

  • Genre : Sports & Recreation
  • The New York Times Bestseller! In the aftermath of the Steroid Era that stained the game of baseball, at a time when so many players are so rich and therefore have a sense of entitlement that they haven't earned, ESPN baseball commentator Tim Kurkjian shows readers how to love the game more than ever, with incredible insight and stories that are hilarious, heartbreaking, and revealing. From what Pete Rose was doing in the batting cage a few minutes after getting out of prison, to why everyone strikes out these days and why no one seems to care, I'm Fascinated By Sacrifice Flies will surprise even longtime baseball fans. Tim explains the fear factor in the game, and what it feels like to get hit by a pitch; Adam LaRoche wanted to throw up in the batter's box. He examines the game's superstitions: Eliot Johnson's choice of bubble gum, a poker chip in Sean Burnett's back pocket. He unearths the unwritten rules of the game, takes readers inside ESPN, and reveals how Tony Gwynn made baseball so much more fun to watch. And, of course, Tim will explain to readers why he is fascinated by sacrifice flies.

  • Genre : Fiction
  • Our life stays on three pillars (love, support, and sacrifice). We all dream and set some goals for ourselves that we want to achieve in our life. Few sacrifice their love for money, and few sacrifice their money for love, so life always has something to keep us busy based on our willingness. This is a story of a protagonist who comes from a small-town middle-class family and has many dreams and goals that he wants to achieve, but life forces him to slow down the velocity, and take a look at other essential dimensions of life. He struggles to find a balance among his love, responsibility, and dreams. In this balancing act, he reaches a stage where he has to choose one over the other. This leaves him open to understand and experience some important lessons that life teaches; most importantly, in the end, he understands, You dont get anything till you are willing to sacrifice something in return. 3D of Life is not just a book but a life tale, which touches the hearts of a million Indians.

  • The journey to the cross was life-changing for those who witnessed it firsthand, and continues to impact our lives today. Journey to the Cross is a cantata/collection suitable for a variety of uses during the Lenten season.

The SAB or Two-part Mixed voicing is an ideal resource for smaller or vocally unbalanced choirs. Even larger choirs seeking options for the busy Lenten season will find this voicing a worthy consideration, while the SATB voicing is also offered for those desiring a full choral edition. The addition of a live orchestra or the accompaniment CD will heighten the experience for the congregation and the singers as they experience this awe-inspiring reminder of our Lords love, His sacrifice, and His victory over death.

  • ISBN : 9780226634067
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Philosophy
  • Is love best when it is fresh? For many, the answer is a resounding “yes.” The intense experiences that characterize new love are impossible to replicate, leading to wistful reflection and even a repeated pursuit of such ecstatic beginnings. Aaron Ben-Ze’ev takes these experiences seriously, but he’s also here to remind us of the benefits of profound love—an emotion that can only develop with time. In The Arc of Love, he provides an in-depth, philosophical account of the experiences that arise in early, intense love—sexual passion, novelty, change—as well as the benefits of cultivating long-term, profound love—stability, development, calmness. Ben-Ze’ev analyzes the core of emotions many experience in early love and the challenges they encounter, and he offers pointers for weathering these challenges. Deploying the rigorous analysis of a philosopher, but writing clearly and in an often humorous style with an eye to lived experience, he takes on topics like compromise, commitment, polyamory, choosing a partner, online dating, and when to say “I love you.” Ultimately, Ben-Ze’ev assures us, while love is indeed best when fresh, if we tend to it carefully, it can become more delicious and nourishing even as time marches on.

  • It is my hope that there was a poem just for you; And in your heart you feel God's love just as I do. And within these words you have something to smile at; And if these words have not touch you yet. Please forgive me for the time I took, and the next time I will write a much better book.

    Positive Approaches to Optimal Relationship Development

  • How can we get the most out of our close relationships? Research in the area of personal relationships continues to grow, but most prior work has emphasized how to overcome negative aspects. This volume demonstrates that a good relationship is more than simply the absence of a bad relationship, and that establishing and maintaining optimal relationships entails enacting a set of processes that are distinct from merely avoiding negative or harmful behaviors. Drawing on recent relationship science to explore issues such as intimacy, attachment, passion, sacrifice, and compassionate goals, the essays in this volume emphasize the positive features that allow relationships to flourish. In doing so, they integrate several theoretical perspectives, concepts, and mechanisms that produce optimal relationships. The volume also includes a section on intensive and abbreviated interventions that have been empirically validated to be effective in promoting the positive features of close relationships.

  • Genre : Religion
  • In The Sacrifice of Africa Emmanuel Katongole confronts this painful legacy and shows how it continues to warp the imaginative landscape of African politics and society. He demonstrates the real potential of Christianity to interrupt and transform entrenched political imaginations and create a different story for Africa ù a story of self-sacrificing love that values human dignity and "dares to invent" a new and better future for all Africans. Compelling accounts of three African Christian leaders and their work ù Bishop Paride Taban in Sudan, Angelina Atyam in Uganda, and Maggy Barankitse in Burundi ù cap off Katongole's inspiring vision of hope for Africa.
