Death Comes for the Deconstructionist

A few years into our marriage, he sat me down and gave me a long talk about old taboos and new paradigms, and I knew right then that we were going to have an avant-garde marriage if we were going to have one at all. Maybe he was right.

Death Comes for the Deconstructionist

When Jon Mote is hired to investigate the murder of his erstwhile mentor, literary star Richard Pratt, the grad school dropout feels woefully unequal to the task. Skittering on the edge of madness, his only source of hope is the dogged love of his developmentally disabled sister, Judy, who serves as cheerleader, critic and moral compass. Soon the siblings find themselves haunting the neighbourhoods of Minneapolis and St Paul, Minnesota – from crime scenes to the halls of academe – exposing a series of suspects along the way. When he stumbles upon Pratt’s terrible secret, Mote is prompted to discover an equally dreadful mystery in his own past – a revelation that accelerates his descent into darkness and puts both himself and Judy at grave risk. ‘Daniel Taylor’s oddly reluctant Sherlock Holmes is accompanied by the most unusual and heartwarming Watson in my reading experience.’ Paul J. Willis, author of The Alpine Tales

Birth Marriage and Death Ritual Religion and the Life Cycle in Tudor and Stuart England

DEATH. COMES. FOR. ALL. Death has two histories, one the cosmic account of its origins in sin and its conquest by Christ's redemption, the other the more mundane story of how humans coped with mortality. The first story affected the ...

Birth  Marriage  and Death   Ritual  Religion  and the Life Cycle in Tudor and Stuart England

From childbirth and baptism through to courtship, weddings, and funerals, every stage in the life-cycle of Tudor and Stuart England was accompanied by ritual. Even under the protestantism of the reformed Church, the spiritual and social dramas of birth, marriage, and death were graced with elaborate ceremony. Powerful and controversial protocols were in operation, shaped and altered by the influences of the Reformation, the Revolution, and the Restoration. Each of the major rituals was potentially an arena for argument, ambiguity, and dissent. Ideally, as classic rites of passage, these ceremonies worked to bring people together. But they also set up traps into which people could stumble, and tests which not everybody could pass. In practice, ritual performance revealed frictions and fractures that everyday local discourse attempted to hide or to heal. Using fascinating first-hand evidence, David Cressy shows how the making and remaking of ritual formed part of a continuing debate, sometimes strained and occasionally acrimonious, which exposed the raw nerves of society in the midst of great historical events. In doing so, he vividly brings to life the common experiences of living and dying in Tudor and Stuart England.

Things quickly turn sinister when a nurse for a wealthy American tourist and a retired cook are murdered.

The answers are not easily found by the amateur detectives and take them through a maze of leads across the byzantine network of Chinatown's residents. Connections one wouldn't expect are brought to light as the investigation deepens, and more innocent people are dragged into a plot motivated by a sinister agenda. Ann and Fang Chen must solve the mystery before it hits closer to home than they could've imagined. Rich with surprise at every twist and turn, Death Comes to Lake Como is an intriguing murder mystery that blends love and friendship with greed and deceit, all in the lush setting of Italy's Lake Country.

The Cambridge Handbook of the Global Work   Family Interface

The Cambridge Handbook of the Global Work-Family Interface is a response to growing interest in understanding how people manage their work and family lives across the globe. Given global and regional differences in cultural values, economies, and policies and practices, research on work-family management is not always easily transportable to different contexts. Researchers have begun to acknowledge this, conducting research in various national settings, but the literature lacks a comprehensive source that aims to synthesize the state of knowledge, theoretical progression, and identification of the most compelling future research ideas within field. The Cambridge Handbook of the Global Work-Family Interface aims to fill this gap by providing a single source where readers can find not only information about the general state of global work-family research, but also comprehensive reviews of region-specific research. It will be of value to researchers, graduate students, and practitioners of applied and organizational psychology, management, and family studies.

Marrying for a Future

The civil war between the Sri Lankan state and Tamil militants, which ended in 2009, lasted more than three decades and led to mass migration, mainly to India, Canada, England, and continental Europe. In Marrying for a Future, Sidharthan Maunaguru argues that the social institution of marriage has emerged as a critical means of building alliances between dispersed segments of Tamil communities, allowing scattered groups to reunite across national borders. Maunaguru explores how these fragmented communities were rekindled by connections fostered by key participants in and elements of the marriage process, such as wedding photographers, marriage brokers, legal documents, and transit places. Marrying for a Future contributes to transnational and diaspora marriage studies by looking at the temporary spaces through which migrants and refugees travel in addition to their home and host countries. It provides a new conceptual framework for studies on kinship and marriage and addresses a community that has been separated across borders as a result of war.

The Hope Habit

Years earlier I had survived a marriage cut short by death, coming through it with my faith in God renewed and my ministry strengthened. But how do you survive divorce? Far from strengthening one's ministry, divorce can shatter it.

The Hope Habit

Whatever happened to hope? If you feel trapped by your circumstances and can’t see a way out, Terry Law wants to show you a new paradigm--the paradigm of hope, which he defines as the confident expectation of the goodness of God. This is not cheap optimism, a pep talk sprinkled with Bible references. This is real hope, the kind that knows “God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” This book is all about hope as a mindset, a habitual choice, the course of first resort when despair tries an ambush. In other words, whether you are hopeful or hopeless is up to you. Perhaps you think it’s too late for you to make such a shift in your thinking, that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” But you’re wrong! No matter how many years may have slipped through your fingers, thanks to God’s grace and mercy, every minute of your future is still on your side.
