Book excerpt: This novel is a rich exploration of two New Testament healings: the bleeding woman who touched the hem of Jesus's garment and the daughter of Jairus the Pharisee. The Gospel of Luke (8:40aEUR"48) sets the miracles on the same day as Jesus and a crowd make their way to the house of Jairus. Could there be a connection between the woman who has bled for twelve years and the twelve-year-old girl who has died? If so, how are they related? What desperation drives the weakened woman to push through the crowd and emboldens her to touch the hem of Jesus? What compels a strict, faithful Pharisee to step outside the confines of his beliefs and risk ridicule and shunning from his neighbors to seek help from a questionable, itinerant rabbi? How does life change for them after the women are healed? This moving story has emerged from the author's knowledge of and reflection on scripture along with careful research into the time and place of the event. Characters come to life as their stories unfold, revealing intimate portraits of life and love in Roman-occupied Capernaum. Ultimately, this is a story of newfound faithaEUR"that of Jairus and the members of his household as their belief in God's love and mercy is tested and transformed through the miracles of Jesus. The author has made every effort to present an accurate account of first-century life in Galilee during the lifetime of Jesus and the early years of Christian conversion that followed His resurrection. Anyone who has struggled with doubt and whose own faith has been tested will be inspired to learn how the members of a single household came to believe in miracles!

Book excerpt: Twelve years ago, a predator terrorized Detective Denise Davidson's community. In the space of a few months, three young women vanished, and the case remains infuriatingly unsolved. Years of intensive police investigations have yielded no information, no hope-and no killer brought to justice. Although fear gripped the community just after the killings, time has healed some wounds. Many residents have moved on with their lives, and the names and faces of the lost women are fading into memory. But Davidson refuses to let complacency triumph over justice. She's not about to let go of her quest for answers. One evening, she takes note of a man sitting alone, watching women entering a popular night spot. His actions intrigue Davidson, and intrigue quickly evolves into suspicion. What is this man hiding? As her understanding of this man and his motives improves, she forms a dangerous bond with him. But even she cannot predict how that bond will lead to one horrific, fearful night when her world will be ripped apart at the seams. She then learns that he has a secret-one he's held close for twelve years. Together, they will plunge into the murky world of horror, lies, and sex. Now these unusual collaborators must unravel the mystery of the dramatic and terrible results of years of sexual deceptions. Are they clever enough to solve the riddle?
Download or read book Sex, Secrets, and Lies written by Marie Miranti Burnett Ph. D. and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2005-02 with total page 200 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Sex, Secrets, and Lies, author Marie Miranti Burnett, PhD, encourages husbands and wives to rethink their vows and consider whether sexual exclusivity should remain the rigid foundation of a good marriage, an ideal that too often leads to secrets and lies and the dissolution of relationships meant to last a lifetime. To strengthen the vow "until death do us part" it may be necessary to place less importance on the vow "to forsake all others." Honest conversations about our sexual needs could lead to real changes in the institution of marriage for the twenty-first century. To guide the conversation, Dr. Burnett draws on her thirty years of clinical experience, listening to the secrets of men and women grappling with their warring needs for freedom and commitment. She shares the stories told to her by urban, educated, thirty-something clients whose values and struggles reflect the significant changes in our sex lives over the past half-century. In Sex, Secrets, and Lies, Dr. Burnett informs couples that a solid marriage consists of an honest, ongoing conversation requiring courageous disclosure and respectful listening that promotes understanding and forgiveness--and that having someone to count on for a lifetime may be the true meaning of monogamy.

Download or read book The Protection of Trade Secrets in China written by Shan Hailing and published by Kluwer Law International B.V.. This book was released on 2012-11-01 with total page 360 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For business investors in China, the legal handling of trade secrets is often crucial. However, initiatives are often complicated by a patchwork trade secrets protection system – pieced together haphazardly over the last two decades and drawing on disparate elements of competition law, contract law, employment law, and criminal law – that diverges in significant ways from global standards and corresponding regimes in other countries. Now at last interested parties can benefit richly from a thorough and practical approach to the subject. This detailed analysis of China’s trade secrets law provides in-depth information and guidance on such important factors as the following: the current framework of China’s trade secrets law, its past development and its ongoing trends; legal comparison of China’s trade secrets law with various international, regional, and national schemes; what constitutes trade secrets infringement in China and what remedies are available; and the legal interaction in China between employment relations and trade secrets protection. The author pays close attention to judicial practice and precedent in the areas of civil remedies, criminal punishment, and administrative penalties. She also offers insightful proposals formulated to align China’s trade secrets law more efficiently with prevailing global standards and generally improve the mechanisms for its implementation. Corporate counsel and international lawyers concerned with intellectual property rights or labour law in China will greatly appreciate the knowledgeable guidance this book affords. They will gain a deeply informed perspective that allows them to avoid infringement, to battle it effectively if occasion arises, and to plan dispute resolution strategies for contingencies involving trade secrets protection in China.
Download or read book The Portal to Past Life Insight written by Lynn C. LeBlanc and published by FriesenPress. This book was released on 2015-12-17 with total page 136 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Portal to Past Life Insight is a collection of short stories about individuals looking for answers to life's challenges. After conventional methods have proven unsuccessful, clients turn to a hypnotherapist and past life specialist for an alternative approach.. Most of life's challenges center around lessons the soul has chosen to learn. Unfortunately, the soul often finds itself stuck in loops that transcend lifetimes. Traveling back in time, collecting information we identify lessons the soul is trying to learn. Each story transports us to various locations around the world, throughout history. Our journeys include Ancient Egypt, Siam, and Nazi Germany. We relive the Klondike Gold Rush, search for the Northwest Passage, and serve time as a political prisoner in the penal colony of Australia. Learn what to look for and how to find key information. See how the soul creates lives to learn and grow. Current and past lives are all intertwined so looking at one life in isolation definitely has limitations. It is much easier, more productive, and insightful to look at past lives when trying to solve issues - even 21st century issues. The Portal has a balance of humor and realism. The stories are interesting and uplifting, as well as inspirational. The book encourages the reader to want more - more out of life and more of a connection between their physical body and their soul.

Download or read book Foundations of Information and Knowledge Systems written by Thomas Eiter and published by Springer. This book was released on 2003-07-31 with total page 294 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume contains the papers presented at the “Second International S- posium on Foundations of Information and Knowledge Systems” (FoIKS 2002), which was held in Schloß Salzau, Germany from February 20th to 23rd, 2002. FoIKS is a biennial event focusing on theoretical foundations of information and knowledge systems. It aims to bring together researchers working on the theoretical foundations of information and knowledge systems and to attract researchers working in mathematical ?elds such as discrete mathematics, c- binatorics, logics, and ?nite model theory who are interested in applying their theories to research on database and knowledge base theory. FoIKS took up the tradition of the conference series “Mathematical Fundamentals of Database S- tems” (MFDBS) which enabled East-West collaboration in the ?eld of database theory. The ?rst FoIKS symposium was held in Burg, Spreewald (Germany) in 2000. Former MFDBS conferences were held in Dresden (Germany) in 1987, Visegr ́ ad (Hungary) in 1989, and in Rostock (Germany) in 1991. Proceedings of these previous events were published by Springer-Verlag as volumes 305, 364, 495, and 1762 of the LNCS series. In addition the FoIKS symposium is intended to be a forum for intensive d- cussions. For this reason the time slot of long and short contributions is 60 and 30 minutes respectively, followed by 30 and 15 minutes for discussions, respectively. Furthermore, participants are asked in advance to prepare as correspondents to a contribution of another author. There are also special sessions for the pres- tation and discussion of open research problems.
